Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Pandora chose "Pleasant Valley Sunday" for me earlier
    It's nice swaying my head and closing my eyes and not thinking music

    did you know that the lego group produces over 306 million miniature tires each year

    that's more than any other tire manufacturer in the world

    I tried to write "but that" and my hands naturally wrote "butt hat", which is vastly superior in every way.

    I never understood what the difference between a gauss rifle and rail cannon.

    Someone pleas explain

    You'd probably have an easier time just looking the two up on wikipedia.

    A rail gun uses, surprisingly, rails. You have two rails parallel, you put your metal projectile in between them, run a ton of current through it and the interactions of the magnetic fields cause the projectile to accelerate down the rails. Because the power* of a railgun is dependent pretty much only on the amount of current that you run through it, big currents can mean shooting a hunk of metal at several kilometers per second. Big guns like that though tend to degrade very quickly though due to stress.

    A gauss gun generally uses a series of solenoids to accelerate a projectile. Picture this, a series of ring shaped electromagnets all in a line, the projectile goes through the inside of the magnets. Basically you just turn on a coil, and the piece of metal (your projectile) is pulled towards it. Once it gets to the magnet you turn it off, and turn on the next one down the line, so now that magnet is pulling it. You keep turning the coils on and off in sequence as the projectile accelerates. Is tricky because very precise timing is required for it to be efficient.

    If you want more technicalities try wikipedia or google.

    *power as in shootin' power, not the technical term.

    I did know that.

    I gave a speech about Legos once.

    Because Legos are great.

    It was for a class.

    The class was pretty dumb.

    I also gave a speech about nanotechnology.

    I ask them how real the danger of "Grey Goo" is

    Not very.

    It would be pretty hard to design a tiny robot that could eat anything.

    The proper term is Eggo waffles. You cannot leggo my Eggos even if there are multiple waffles.
