let's say i have the materials and technology needed to create a biomechanicaL warbeast based on a cicada. i want it to be able to blast out 194 Db waves of pure fuck-you-up. but also be able to use different frequencies and amplitudes of sound for different things too.

so, what's the best way to go about making it?
how would it work?

Does anyone know the estimated total length of veins in the human body ? And I'm not looking for that 60K miles trivia shit that counts all the capillaries. I just want the actual veins.

>>16144 is right, things we define as postcapillary venules are no different from capillaries except a widening lumen.

At first I was going to say that the first couple of miles of elephants that are still in Earth's atmosphere wouldn't die because they can breathe, but then I remembered gravity is a thing.

And because of gravity, almost all (any of them that don't fall to the moon) of that column of elephants will immediately collapse downward toward the Earth onto those other elephants and then onto the ground in a giant puddle of elephant slop.

Anyway, the distance between the Earth and the moon is 238,900 miles, and the height of an average African elephant is about ten feet. So there are 126,139,200 elephants between the Earth and Moon. Anyway, the point of approximate neutral gravity between them is at 211,266 miles from Earth. Therefore, 111,548,448 of them will fall to Earth. The total weight of all those elephants is about 501,968,016 tons.

Using some questionably accurate ratios of masses of large asteroids related to their volumes, I estimate this huge weight of elephants would be about equal to that of a rocky asteroid of a size of 0.4 cubic kilometers, or about 0.75 km across.

So if the weight of all those elephants somehow compressed into a small dense sphere on the way down and hit the ground at once, it would release enough energy to equal about 16 gigatons of TNT.

Suffice it to say, all those elephants would be dead, seeing how they would be vaporized.

A tool is not someone who does stuff for you. A tool is someone you use to acheive your goals.

If you have a tool but no need to use it then it is without purpose.

Live your life. If you need tools use them, if you do not, do not. Do not go finding purpose for tools, by doing so you become the tool through which they have purpose.

You are the tool!

I need my fix of good literature because only recently have I stopped flooding my head with that fraud that is called philosopy.

Since I'm spanish and I'm counting with the fact that many of you are not pretty much anny suggestion might serve.

I'm looking for a good lighthearted adventure like Stevenson's or a raw, crude, careless one (should I say "morals free) like Blood Meridian or other Mcharthy novels.

I do not have a problem at all with touching any subject.

Inmersive novels are very welcome too, since I'm also leaving my videogame and procrastination life and thus i need good material to start exercising my imagination.

I trust you good taste!

Try Woman In The Dunes by Kobo Abe. On one hand it's a quite whimsical and absurd, although dark and claustrophobic adventure. On the other hand it's a thoughtful, primal and beautiful depiction of the mundane, the primal and the ridiculous of human experience. It can be light, poetic and enteraining in a darkish way, or cryptic and analytic, or something in the between depending how you take it.

Re-download and re-burn the image then try again.
Boot a *nix LiveCD (ubuntu or mint being the easiest flavours)

If one doesn't work try the other and feedback to us.

irq not less or equal can mean RAM issues.

if you didn't buy ram off the qvl, return the ram you bought, then buy some sticks that are qualified by the motherboard vendor to work with your board (qvl - qualified vendor list).

I was always wondering why all these star freaks obsess over the cosmos.

What is so interesting about space?
At best its a meaningless expanse full of dead rocks and deadly dangers.

Deadly radiation from stars, pulsars and other galactic crap.
Gigantic gravity well of meaninglessness like gas giants and black holes.
Dead rock and chemicals some so cold they kill everything others so hot they burn everything to death.

The universe seams to be a insignificant expanse and the human experience seams far to incredible to waste it over watching pointless chemicals and rocks.

What is there to gain in the universe?
At best you will see a planet with a different collaring do to some chemicals.

What is so interesting about it? You can get the same by simply putting some colored glasses and fiction (films, comics) have provided far more interesting vistas to see.

Dear John.

I write you on this beatiful rainy and warm day to let you know that I'm not well, but there is no reason to worry, as I'm not bad either. Oh, a thunder just shown up at my bedroom's window! What a beautiful sight! You can't imagine how much I wish to be together with my old pal, drinking some scotch and watching the storm quietly on my house's porsche.
Anyways, Christmas just passed, and I don't know what to feel about it. Some people has told me that if I don't feel like celebrating holidays, then I should treat them like any other day of the year.
Still, I don't want to treat them like any other day of the year. But alas, I have not many options.
You see, I have few friends, and those who I trust the most spent their holidays with their families. Though I do not feel uncomfortable with sharing these days with my family, I still feel quite dazed by this whole thing.
Christmas' Eve, Christmas, etc. make people around me feel joyous and happy, but, apparently, holidays don't have the same effect on me.
I have to say, though, that I haven't felt much joy lately. A dreadful sensation of melancholy invades my head for some reason. It appears that I'm morose. Life is no longer fun for me, friend.
And nonetheless, I want to quit going to the therapist. I don't want to have responsabilities anymore, and going to a place where I don't talk about the things I truly want to talk (I blame the nerves on that) is not appealing at all. I feel like I should keep going. Perhaps life can become colorful again. And mind you, I don't think that I can bring the colours in my life by myself.

Well, enough about these gloomy bussiness, I say. Even though I'm feeling gray as always, I love to hear the sound of raindrops falling on my house's tin roof, and the black tobacco cigarettes and acid jazz music that escort me seem to be good companions indeed.
What about you, my friend? How is life treating you? What climate do you enjoy the most? And what is keeping you from being alone in those days that you have to spend inside you house? A pet? A drink?

Dear John,

I like the picture you sent me. It has a distinctly oneiric quality, and reminds me of impressionist painting.

I am sorry to hear you are down. Try getting some Chinese food or reading 'A Movable Feast' by Ernest Hemingway. Starting a journal and sticking to it every day will make you feel better too.

I would recommend quitting those cigarettes. You'll feel accomplished when you do.

Thank you for writing John. I have a small black cat I spend time with, and read good books to keep the Down away. It was nice to hear from you.

Hello, /k/.

I'm in the process of building myself a cabin innawoods, and setting up a reasonably sustainable living space for myself. Right now, I still have a regular apartment and job, but I intend to eventually go full hermit in my cabin and avoid heading into town if at all possible.

What I need are incredibly durable and easy to strip/troubleshoot firearms. I don't care how pretty they are, and I'm willing to trade 'comfort' for 'indestructible'.

Effectively, I want some guns that I can bring with me in the woods and that will easily last 10-15 years if need be without me heading into town (obviously with proper maintenance).

I'm not really interested in bringing more than 3 or 4 guns with me either, ideally

- a pistol/revolver
- a shotgun
- a hunting rifle
- a semi-auto rifle

Sarah Palin 17/01/23(Mon)01:54 No. 15359

Kinda building on the last comment.

Any AR platform gun will do well for you as just a semi-auto. You can get them in the standard 5.56, .300 blackout, .762x39(AK47 round) and even bigger cartridges. The last two are good for hunting game larger than varmint, but a 5.56 is good for varmint and things like coyotes.

Going off the semi-auto and into the hunting rifle area, an M1A (Mil designation M14) can be a pretty good hunting rifle though a touch expensive.

I don't know much about shotguns/pistols. But as far as shotguns go, a 12 gauge will do just about everything you need. Simplistic side, a breach loading double barrel/over-under should be the simplest compared to the pumps or semi-auto shotguns.

If you're talking cheap ammo, a .22LR rifle might be good to get at small varmint like squirrels and rabbits.

If you want to get really sustainable, you might want to spring for a crossbow or a bow (assuming good upper body strength).

For all these things you're probably going to have to head into town though, for the bullets and cleaning material for the weapons (I guess that depends on how often you're using them).

Sarah Palin 17/01/31(Tue)06:48 No. 15361

An M1A is way too heavy for hunting. The typical hunting gun is for walking far and shooting only a few times. A better option can be had in a Savage bolt gun. Double barrel shotgun are more complex than they seem and most of them suck unless you shell out a lot for them. For innawoods purposes a pump gun is better.

Sarah Palin 17/02/15(Wed)06:50 No. 15364

.357 magnum would be a good idea for a lever action henry and a wheel gun. can take durr, and useful for self defense against small to mid size predators (cougars, wolves, coyotes, panthers, maybe small black bears.)

do not, I repeat do not even consider this as a viable self defense calibe against brown bears/grizzlies.
"b, b, but, shot placement."
yeah, you go with that. there's a good damn reason people in alsaka carry big bore hand cannons for anti-bear defense. grizzlies are fucking tanks.

Does anyone have experience or interest in building tiny homes? They are usually 100-300 sq/ft. made of found and recycled materials cheaply. Some run on solar and wind power. I work a part-time job and I'm thinking of starting a tiny house project. I can buy some materials and there's plenty of scrap around me to use. I have some carpentry skills and general know-how. Anyone interested in the tiny, minimal, cheap life?
