Too bad they leave the fairings on the backs from transport. Then again, don't want people to realize they took the engines out, either.

And Discovery has obviously seen some human waste.

how did that thing work? I believe it wasn't infrared, so how did it transmit radio frequencies with that grill in the front? or was it something else?

Early remotes used high-pitched audio tones. I remember being able to play "Teddy bears' picnic" on a friends' TV remote.

They would make a loud "click" when you pushed a button. Thus the term "clicker" referring to a tv remote control.
They were also optional, meaning that if you wanted a tv with a remote control, you'd have to pay a couple hundred dollars more.

My uncle had one of these TVs. I remember this well. They also had one of the first commercially available Pong machines.

In retrospect, my uncle was pretty cool.

It was audio.
There were 4 rods in it..each with a different tone.

Logically, cops were afraid of the vulcan nerve pinch.

Superimpose one on top of the other and they line up perfectly. Cool.

Ah, the real explanation of the optical illusion though funny thing: for whatever reasons I do not perceive these pictures not and the other examples at the above link as apparently diverging EXCEPT when I closely examined them.

EDIT: <sigh> fixed a typo.

When you really get into this stuff, you quickly begin to realize that what you perceive as reality is as much a figment of your imagination as it based on sensory input. The sensor fusion that forms our perception of a continuous reality takes a tremendous number of shortcuts that work "most of the time", until you run across an edge case like this. Cool stuff. :up:

I miss this kind of easy access. Putting a new hard drive into my iMac was an exercise in patience, and hand-eye coordination.

Yeah, but no iMac ever was supposed to be opened by users, and now absolutely no apple device is supposed to be opened.

Had to google it, it's actually a thing


Quote:
Orthokeratology (also referred to as Ortho-K, Overnight Vision Correction, Corneal Refractive Therapy and CRT), refers to the creation of gas permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea to reduce refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.[1] This method can be used as an alternative to eyeglasses, refractive surgery, or for those who prefer not to wear contact lenses during the day. Orthokeratology is most often used for candidates with up to -6.00 diopters of myopia.

Quote:
The corrective effect is stable but not permanent. Left to itself, the eye will slowly lose its adjusted shape, taking around 3 days to return to its former vision.[9] The Ortho-K lenses must therefore be worn regularly so the corrected corneal shape is preserved and maintained. Usually they are worn only for part of the day (typically only when asleep at night); some users may only need to use them one night out of every two or three nights.
