Happy birthday: take a trip in America's largest flying gadget (part 4)

Mar 28th 2008 9:11AM By my calculations, I have something like a 0.119063482% chance of winning one of these. Making my expected gain from these comments around 71 cents. Which would have been worth it if I hadn't spent the time to make those calculations.

Mar 24th 2008 6:54PM I'd cut and paste my comment from the other post but, really, why bother. I think I've earned my tickets already.

How to Access Malibu Beaches and Legally Piss Off the Homeowners who live there

Aug 27th 2007 1:53AM And frankly, I want their houses. So if people hanging out in front of their view to the ocean makes them sad, they should just look around at the house they still own and remind themselves of the benefits of living in a society that's governed by laws rather than wants.

DIY laser long-distance listening device

Aug 22nd 2007 7:04PM Hmm, it looks like if your target is 200 ft away and your beam is even one degree off perpendicular to the surface of the glass, your laser and your detector will have to be roughly 7 feet apart. So if you want to use this from "hundreds of feet away", it'll be really inconvenient unless you're damn close to perpendicular.

And now it occurs to me that there's kind of a rock and a hard place thing going on here: for this to be convenient, you want to be very close to perpendicular but the reflection will be stronger the farther from perpendicular you are. Hmm...
