@Annie K. Gravitational waves are difficult to detect - no one has really done it directly - since they are so weak. There was, however, a time when they were plentiful and intense: right after the Big Bang. The gravity waves induced a kind of anisotropy in the way that electrons scatter/polarize photons, and this anisotropy persists to the present day.
Gluttony drops a notch if you have the pizza place in your speed dial.
@HelloTheFuture There's not actually much information about Dude, here, so it's hard to tell.
For all we know, LW might finally indicate her needs to him, and he responds positively. Or he could respond negatively, but in a forthright manner characteristic of a secure style.
Poor amphibians. Their sorptive skin just sucks in pollutants.
Cretan Linear B was another language that was only deciphered recently (1950s). I think they were able to do this since they had a working language (archaic Greek) to help constrain the possibilities.
"Triangle thing" is called "nabla" in some contexts.
@stuffisthings "The above people are wrong for reasons that would require an explanation approximately as long as the videos themselves. However, since this is a blog, you should just take my word for it."
What is wrong with Keith's sulfuric acid suggestion again? Author doesn't really address it, except to reinforce how the word "acid" makes the proposal sound all scary.
All media analysis aside, the dash cam footage became a very important scientific record of the event. The dash cam footage can by synced with high-altitude telemetric tracking data to reconstruct not only the path of the meteorite but also its temperature, etc.
Incidentally, most of the people injured by the meteorite were standing at their windows watching the lights in the sky. When the shockwave hit, their windows shattered and they were cut badly. So: if this happens to your city, stay away from the window.
Don't be so snotty! Remember how that movie about the runner-up in the 1984 election (Mondale!) went on to win the Palm d'Or at Cannes?
