    "A hole in nothing leaves something". Read that earlier about paired virtual particles.
    Sciencey stuff that doesn't make sense, about reality that doesn't make sense.
    Count me in!

    Nobody got the Tesla AC / Edison DC current wars reference? I thought that was a cool one.

    But the band is still out there touring. I thought the lightning bolt from the logo would be a giveaway...
    Maybe it was too obscure. Or maybe it just wasn't funny.

    That's pretty slick. How many tons make you another day older and deeper in debt?

    Samsung_AR_Contact_Lens_Patent_image1-1024x422.jpg

    Published by the U.S Patent and Trademark Office, Samsung has won the patents for smart augmented reality (AR) contact lenses. These lenses, very much like your smart-phone, will be able to take photos, record videos and display images into the user’s eye through a built-in hidden camera.

    Rolling Stones get name on little Martian rock that rolled


    "NASA has given us something we have always dreamed of, our very own rock on Mars. I can't believe it," Mick Jagger told the crowd after grooving through a rendition of "Tumbling Dice." ''I want to bring it back and put it on our mantelpiece."

    Ahhhh...

    Yes, because I'm stupid. It is 60. There are four of those little whatever things, each thus representing 1.

    I missed the × symbol my first go round. That's why I hate tight time schedules on tests.
    @Nadnitram then next time around I missed there was only 1 shock rather than 2. So my first result was 17. :oops: My test score average, 33.3% :(

    So that's what that is?

    I recognized the tire, but I had no idea what those other things represent, though I did think the "T" thing looked a bit like a piston. Not that that should matter. I still failed to accurately assign the appropriate value to them.

    My only excuse is that I am stupid. Though I claim automotive ignorance, still, I really should return my diploma.
