    There needs to be an easier way to point out mistakes you find in science articles. Emailing the contact will just be met with silence or a blunt refusal to accept that they cocked up.

    It increases your potential to monetize human suffering by at least 30%!

    again, i'm not gooey.

    Look, all I know about you two is:
    -Those guys who played L4D back in the day and didn't get us killed (cough nexus cough)
    -One makes a living by grinding poor people into some sort of money-distillable paste
    -One drills oil or strip mines on the moon or some shit

    And you've got the memory of a savant, at least when it comes to the forums.
    i design space suits and other space stuff and random things as well. nothing that can be used to exploit the downtrodden really.

    They aren't insulated with the hopes and dreams of the working class? Well harumph

    Nah, nothing happens to you in a plane. You might pass out from lack of oxygen, but less pressure doesn't really do anything to you. For instance, you can stay alive in the vacuum of space for a minute or so until you die.

    Pressure though? The hole would explosively decompress depending on your depth and you'd turn into a fine mist and flow freely through that hole.

    I hate kids.
    Moving across the country made it easy to be like "well I haven't played this in three years" I'm tryin' to parse down my collection as much as possible. Also I am giving the Wii to my dad and he won't play some of the games I have on it so they went byebye.

    I've had good results with ether.

    Right now I'm looking at a paper that is all "Yo, we took some XPS data and confirmed that the surface had sulphur on it!". Only, they clearly didn't use a reference sample, as the peak they are claiming to be the S2p is actually the Ga 3s peak because it's a gallium alloy. So it seems odd that they have missed a peak from the material itself in favour of making a claim about having stuck down a monolayer.

    Idiots. I can see how it would slip through peer review though.

    There was something of a shootout onboard a British submarine? Wha?

    That he found even space to shoot a firearm in a submarine is impressive.

    I've been onboard one of the vessels, and it's very claustrophobic.

    I've only been inside a WWII vessel and it was tiny. The spacious bridge of US vessels you see in movies does not exist in any of ours, that I do know.

    How closely related are those in the normal spectrum?

    And for that matter, where the fuck do you find a concise reference of this type of thing because I've been looking.

    In GaP the Ga 3s peak is at 159.9eV and S bonded to that surface gives a peak at about 162eV. They have proudly, show a graph with a single peak smack bang on 160eV.

    "Handbooks of Monochromatic XPS Spectra: Volume 1 - The Elements and Native Oxides" or similar will give you an endless list of where you can expect to find the peaks from a given element. The problem is that things move by a few eV due to bonding. Well, that's not a problem really, it's what people use XPS for but it means you need to trawl through papers for similar studies rather than citing that directly.

    So is that all they've got? Coz sulfur is a pretty weak signal to start with, and normally we do something like compare carbon signals to prove whatever we put there is there.

    It's a really crappy paper. I mean, to think they have the sulphur peak they mustn't have looked at a reference sample at all. I think they got some interesting and just wanted to very quickly claim it was what they expected, which it isn't. At all. GaP is the red headed step child of the Ga-alloys though. Decent groups work on GaN and GaAs.

    It would be pretty funny if they collectively decided that he didn't know any better and that nothing could be gained from ruining the fool.

    But it will still be pretty funny when they ruin that fool.

    Some enemies are just too much for 4chan, though. They couldn't take on the Iranian government, nor could they take on the church of scientology. Who knows if they can take on soljahboy.

    So I'm glancing over the Wisconsin thread, about how a Republican official who's been found guilty of election fraud in the past found more than enough lost ballots in her office to bring the losing Republican candidate over the top to victory.

    My first thought was, "how long before the Democrats quietly concede the election because they're too chickenshit to call election fraud when they see it?"

    No, my group works pretty much exclusively on AlGaN/GaN heterostructure devices, it's a pretty different field. I'm more doing material science (so looking at GaN, AlGaN, GaP, GaAs), they are doing device characterisation (seeing what happens when they run transistor devices).
