Re: Wuhan Coronavirus

The world is overpopulated, and could do with a good plague. 

This latest coronavirus has good potential to cause a rukus, what with the host walking around infecting others for 7-10 days before their own symptoms even show up.

Re: The Decline of Vancouver.

Here's something interesting:

Haha...

...did this actually happen?

Can't tell if website is real. Definitely sounds like something that would happen in Abby.

Re: New Forum

Posting pics up goes up as an attachment. Clicking on posts/attachments won't open them directly, they get downloaded to my computer.
I don't want to have to download pics to see what people are posting up...

Re: The Shank Thread

Just picked this up for part of the shenaniganstraining I partake in.

Karambit trainer, for Krav/Kali.  Getting flowy.  :)

Re: New Forum

Thanks for sorting oot password issue, Norm!

My only complaint is that I couldn't trade my repz for a keg of beer...

New Ford Ranger and Bronco

The Rangers have always been available in SEAsia.

Malaysia has a cool version, I think that's what'll be available in Canada.
4WD, lifted a bit, diesel engine, costs less than 20k.

Would sell like crazy in Canada.

Ribs are healed up, just got my gearbox back from warranty, she's back together and rocking.

Hotter than your mom...

This is pretty cool.
Didn't know this was going on in South Korea, will try and get a tour sometime:

Korean-fusion-reactor-achieves-record-plasma

The Korean Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) tokamak-type nuclear fusion reactor has achieved a world record of 70 seconds in high-performance plasma operation, South Korea's National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI) has announced.

The institute, based at Daejeon, 160 km south of Seoul, said a fully non-inductive operation mode - called a "high poloidal beta scenario" - has been used to achieve this long and steady state of operation using high-power neutral beam. It said various techniques, including a rotating 3D field, have been applied to alleviate the accumulated heat fluxes on the plasma-facing components.

"The world record for high-performance plasma for more than a minute demonstrated that the KSTAR is the forefront in steady-state plasma operation technology in a superconducting device," NFRI said in a statement today. "This is a huge step forward for realization of the fusion reactor."

In addition, the institute said, KSTAR researchers also succeeded in achieving an alternative advanced plasma operation mode with the internal transport barrier (ITB). This is a steep pressure gradient in the core of the plasmas due to the enhanced core plasma confinement. NFRI said this is the first ITB operation achieved in the superconducting device at the lowest heating power.

"With the progress of the Iter project, the KSTAR research will focus on the mission essential for the fusion reactor beyond Iter," the institute said. "They are new efficient mode of operation and a new divertor concept suitable for the Korean fusion demonstration reactor, the K-DEMO device, which will be the first runner in worldwide fusion energy development plan."

NFRI president Keeman Kim said, "We will exert efforts for KSTAR to continuously produce world-class results, and to promote international joint research among nuclear fusion researchers."

Construction of KSTAR, a tokamak-typed nuclear fusion reactor, began in December 1995 and it was completed in August 2007. The first experiment was conducted in KSTAR in 2009. It was the first in the world to feature a fully superconducting magnet system with a central solenoid, toroidal and poloidal field coils. It measures 8.6 m high, and 8.8 m in diameter.

Tokomak-design reactors like KSTAR use magnetism to contain a toroidal-shaped plasma at temperatures of up to 300 million °C. Despite this temperature it is necessary to cool superconducting magnets to -269°C. Inside the plasma, a few grams of deuterium and tritium atoms are stripped to the nuclei, which fuse to release energy. It is hoped that this form of nuclear energy could one day be used to generate electricity, but maintaining a steady plasma has proven very difficult.

I remember the Draco!
Always wondered what happened with the company…

RIP: Fidel Castro

Haha, this is funny.

Lots of Albertans/BCers I know are talking to me aboot Trudeau being the illegitimate love spawn of Castro. A lot of the same people that are vocal aboot having Western Canada leave the east behind, and form a new country.

Haha, Trudeau/Castro love spawn
