Overall though the game is pretty cliche in many respects, sure. But what *isn't* cliche in videogames? I think the more important thing is what you try to do with those cliches, and Infinite does a pretty good job using its heavy hands to rub one off.

IMO, simply put, without certain "cliches" there wouldn't be genres.

Regarding Monster, could be great as I found that manga terrifying. All his work is awesome though I am not sure what to make of his latest "Billy Bat"

Does that mean October / November 6th, or June 10 / 11th? I'm assuming they're doing the "rest of the world moves their days and months around" thing and that it's the latter.

blah. I can't tell whether video embedding works on mobile or not. Anyway, this video will be informative.

Nice, thanks!

 

BTW... I've heard an interesting rumor that HiFiMan is coming out with a new planar magnetic flagship to surpass the HE-6 soon.

One that's not in collaboration with Goldmund? :P

If I'd do this same thing I'd choose a smaller glass, and something with higher viscosity. Additionally, I'd also do the math first to approximate if it's even possible.

 

And here you were probably thinking that coming back would be a little boring...  Okay fine, it's not that exciting, but at least it's more stimulating than a barrage of animated gifs where the relevance of each successive gif is inversely proportional to its degree of irritation.

Yep, I do that all the time. I just can't stand not doing anything about such errors.
And in the end, it's actually good for you. By frequently fixing your's and other's mistakes, you'll build up a better sense for correct grammar, improving your writing in the process.
I also always reread every single post I make to check for errors or bad language usage. In the process of doing this, I have over several years caused huge improvement in my writing.

 

+1. I normally only do it if it's really obvious or reads really badly. Most common in the anime thread, I'm sad to say.frown.gif

 

LOL, so I'm not a lone freak.  I only do it when it can be done in a subtle way as I don't want to offend.  And I'm happy when others do it to me.  Years down the line, some noob might be going through that thread to glean some knowledge.  I'd like to not look illiterate when that happens.

+1.  Although, again, I wouldn't mind if she'd pick up one or two of those things that she needs (that only she can use) once in a while.

The centrifugal force is a reaction force to the centripetal force, and the centripetal force is exactly what causes a body to rotate. There is not necessarily a centrifugal force, but there always is a centripetal force in a rotating body.

Though I do agree that the scenario is perhaps highly unlikely, the physics is right. The pressure on a body further away from the center of rotation experiences a higher force and exerts a higher pressure inward (hence also a higher reactive centrifugal force, but I don't think that's not the actual problem).
The rotation should cause a pressure gradient with higher pressure on the inside than on the outside. Which causes a general outward force on all the particles (hence centrifugal force, but in this case it's not as simple as in other cases). This will indeed cause an outward flow. But at least it will still keep rotating while flowing! tongue.gif

IF there was a force continually keeping the thing in rotation, instead of just inertia, then it might work. Though that's something probably close to impossible with just plain water.
Perhaps something with magnets...

 

What he said.

Sometimes, yes....especially if it is a friend's post. smile_phones.gif

Hah, I had a similar thought: Are they going to scalp their contract vendor's $10,000 headphone by releasing something better themselves for $3,000?

Personally I'm more interested in a revival of the Jade than an improved HE-6, but we'll see.

Yeah, that's why the Goldmund thing is even more ridiculous than it might initially seem. Thing is I've heard through the grapevine that Goldmund were only supposed to develop an uber amp for HiFiMan and the whole "rebadging the HE-6" thing was actually not originally part of the plan. Will be interesting to see how HiFiMan responds.

Good point. I was wondering about that for a few seconds, but with hindsight it was indeed wrong.

Hey, nobody's perfect. I'm sure if I went through all of my posts I would find some errors. smile_phones.gif

I'm not too sure about the physics, since I haven't taken a statistical physics or hydrodynamics course yet.

I had far better success mixing gelatine with the water.

The thing stiood up forever after letting it stand for a few hours before trying the experiment...   Funny. that..!

Dead people are only perfect in one way- they're dead. achmed is the exception which proves the rule...
