Suicide and murder are both illegal, and yes, depending on where you look at from (literally, and no, I won’t get into the politics of it here).
To give one’s life for those we love in sacrifice is the greatest gift we can give.

Now, how is that greatest gift not supposed to be more attacked and diverted and corrupted and distorted and misinterpreted, and attempted to be deceived, and deceived with deceit, I don’t know, but it sure does look like it is…

Murder is to take someone else’s life without proper authorization or justification, in other words, for no good reasons.
Some may be involuntary, as in, even though the person doing it was not intending to, their action(s) or negligence of action led to the death, which, even though unwanted, could have been prevented, or otherwise, prevented, which did lead to the loss of life, in an unacceptable way or manner.

That is to say, compared to a police officer preventing the escape of a suspect under arrest and under justifiable cause, to prevent further damage to society (which damage by the way, shouldn’t be some kind of false propaganda meant again to justify unfair killing, or, lead to the end of the person’s life, even if there was other interference against the person’s life, which were meant to be seen as if those intererence were legal and justifiable, even though they were not).

Of course, there are other cases, and every 7 billion person on earth is different, even if there are some similarities between them, such as them being person or human.

They could see there was life on the moon in 1969 7 years before, with figments or pigments, flat or on it’s side.
Is the moon flat or as flat the earth is, or was, or will be?
What makes you think that?
Scientific investigation or administrative investment?
Is the bible in tune with an accordeon?
Oh, I couldn’t really say, if I had a military base on it to make robots to protect us from outer space, or from marine monsters…

Yeah, you don’t want those controls to go out of whack… Like if it never happened… Why else would you want to have any controls for an information system, right? It’s not like if it matters, or ever matters, right?.. Especially for input system, when decisions time is meant to save life, or, when decisions taken, even if it is decisions to cause death can mean to save millions of lives, or , 300 million lives… Right?

On another note…
Who would ever want to have such a funny idea as control, right?
Control, how does that even exist? Right?
There is no control…
What about to control one’s rights, or even worst, the rights of others. Right?

  • As a bonus,
    the moon doesn’t exist,
    it’s only a reflection of the earth.
    And so it is, however, the reflection of the moon back to the earth, is used not to measure how flat the reflection is, but rather to measure the distance of the moon to the earth, or, the relative distance to other items flying, or sailing, or moving towards it , in space, which is space may or may not be as flat, or that flat, that is.

So, one way to open a hard drive case if the screws are not giving way, or, if the screws are capped in, as if from a pop-rivet machine, to make them impossible to remove without breaking them, is to drill the hole in the screws, so as to make the screws mechanism, which does keep the screws in place, inoperative, and allow for the casing to open.
If the casing doesn’t open, you can grind the casing and the plates with the data inside.
Who cares about the engine?
The data is not on the engine.
If the data is on the engine, destroy the engine with the grinder.

3 Easy Ways to Destroy Your DATA!

Snocrash
Published on Jul 6, 2016

Here’s three ways to destroy your HDD data before throwing out the drive (or computer)! (Don’t try at home)

I probably need to point out that even if your hard drive platter is damaged it can still have data recovered from it. What you need to consider the cost-recovery-paradigm. In a nutshell, how much is the data worth to the person wanting to recover it? Generally speaking, and without getting into the science of it, you can recover data from damaged drive platters for about $US30K - $US50K per platter. If the platter is flat but scratched, it is cheaper & easier to recover data from than say the platter that is warped or physically distorted. But if you’re really worried that someone will spend vast quantities of money on recovering Your data, then the only near perfect method of destruction of your data is by software erase or alternatively you could heat the platters to near melting temperature, expose them to strong magnetic fields, acid etc…

And to address anyone considering Encryption; please be aware that most westernised governments have coercive powers. You’ll have your freedom and choice - to choose to hand over the data, or spend 10-20 years in jail.

As mentioned before, there are ways to extract binary code to construct some field of data from it, and to decypher it with the proper tools, or, by comparison…
Of course it would cost $30,000 US to $50,000 US, but most companies are worth over $1 million ($1,000,000) US, so, less than 10% to 5% of their value in assets and/or incomes.
That’s even more obvious if they didn’t pay you when they made that money, like for the 64% of people who make under $10,000 a year, including my fiancée, even if that may change over 10 years.

Or, something like that.

Now, one way you could see that those software application didn’t work was to run the
‘Undelete’ command from MS-DOS 6.n , or 6.xx.
This showed the files data that remained, and , even some data remaining without the files.
In other words, the data that was in those files, which files are only pointers on a hard drive, were still partly stored on the physical medium, which allowed for partial recovery, which can then be used to reconstruct or to build up partial files with integral data.

If you deleted all the hard disk 7 times, there would still be those,
so a military entity doing that and thinking it’s ok won’t cut it.

Additionally, even if you did save data over the previous file data, it would still leave original file data intact.
You could literally see the new data overwriting the old data and which part of that old data was missing.

My dreams (when I dream) are just wild. Some are stories other just have their won dreamlike narrative -like a theme of not being in the right place, with endless entries of what that could mean. Not being in the right place, being to places I don’t belong, not finding a way or going in a way I don’t intend to go. My dreams, when I dream (rarely), often reflect the lack of direction, of meaning, in my life. I am worried about my rental, it expires next year and if my landlord is to update my rent to the current market conditions, I won’t be able to pay it. And what can I do about it? I don’t want to leave my flat, it’s a 1 in 100 gem -comapred to how was the market in 2015, and how it’s now. Dreaming about looking for a place in the world as a reminder that I don’t have any plans in case I lose my flat makes no sense. As all lacks of control over my life, it’s depressing and harmful to me.

I rather would have a story-like dream than the themed ones…

(By the way, I dream in color. Apparently some people dream in black and white…?)

You can recycle the metal even before you chip it, the only problem is that it is much more work to process the chemical process, so to filter the parts that are not the metal you want in it.
Melting metal is not melting all metals together.
When different metals are mixed together, it shows up in their chemical composition.
If you sell the metal as a simple metal, the concentration nearest to 99.9% or 99.7% is desired for highest values of the metal property.
It will however fix the data.

Of course, there are many metal mixtures which are more valuable than a certain metal itself, both for volume and combined properties.

Iron Oxide is pretty close to rust if not rust…
Just to have rust powder of iron is not less rusty, whether for Minmatar ship color or not.

Rust is an iron oxide , a usually red oxide formed by the redox reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of water or air moisture. Several forms of rust are distinguishable both visually and by spectroscopy, and form under different circumstances. Rust consists of hydrated iron (III) oxides Fe2O.

How does Soyuz return to Earth?

How Soyuz rocket returns to Earth . Computer simulation: Russia’s Soyuz rocket has undocked from the International Space Station and will land in Kazakhstan, five months after its mission began. The spacecraft, which has three astronauts on board, returned to earth using various methods, as a Nasa spokesman explains.

###
How Soyuz rocket returns to Earth - BBC News - BBC.com
https://www.bbc.com/news/av/science…/how-soyuz-rocket-returns-to-earth

http://www.russianspaceweb.com/soyuz-landing.html


A rare image shows the reentry of the Soyuz TMA-13M mission from the vantage point of the crew inside. A European astronaut Alexander Gerst is enjoying the view.

Reentry into the atmosphere

Under normal flight conditions, the Descent Module enters the Earth’s atmosphere under an angle of 1.35 degrees toward the local horizon, at an altitude of around 100 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. By maintaining its correct pitch angle, the capsule can generate some aerodynamic lift, which makes the return trajectory less steep and subjects the crew members to less g-loads than those they would experience in a ballistic descent.

Still, all Soyuz crew members must be prepared for the ballistic return mode (known as BS in Russian), in case of emergency, such as a failure of the flight control or the attitude control system.

In any case, the capsule decelerates sharply as it encounters the dense atmosphere. Around three minutes after the separation of the Descent Module, the air friction causes ablative layers of the capsule to burn, while forming a bubble of plasma around the spacecraft, which makes communications with ground control stations largely impossible for around five minutes 40 seconds, which is long enough for the capsule to descend from an altitude of 90 kilometers to just 35 kilometers.

The flight control system provides the roll of the capsule in order to adjust the landing trajectory. The particular roll angles are calculated by the KSO20M instrument or can be induced by the crew based on indications from the manual control console, RUS. The roll control process is concluded around one minute before the activation of the parachute system.

In case the automated control of the landing trajectory is impossible, but other means for maneuvering the capsule are still functioning, the crew can still try the aerodynamic descent mode or switch to a ballistic mode.

soyuz reentry temperature
The Stardust sample return probe had an interesting re-entry to Earth’s atmosphere. Returning from a solar orbit the maximum deceleration has been reported as 34g. Maximum temperatures are estimated at around 3,200 Kelvin or 2900 degrees C at the surface. ~ Apr 28, 2016

###
What are the top temperatures occurring during reentry? - Space …
https://space.stackexchange.com/…/what-are-the-top-temperatures-occurring-…

Formula (2900 °C × 9/5) + 32 = 5252 °F

Anyways, yes, when dealing with such high temperature and the materials properties that are in it, the times of such temperature does matter, since , metal and materials expands at difference rates of sizes per times at which such and such temperature level do occur.
So, when the temperature goes down, some metal retract and get smaller in size back again as they cool down.

The air pressure and atmospheric pressure also matters.
You can imagine what would happen during storms, rain, snow, etc…
Any conditions affects the system.

So, if the shuttle re-entry is at 4000 degree or 3000 degrees F for 1 minute or 2 minutes, it can matter a lot.
The other system re-entry is mentioned as 4 to 5 some minutes without contact with the control tower for communication, due to heat, however, I am not sure that is the Soyuz capsule, and not another probe on a solar orbit…

More verification would be required, although, I’m sure their operation costs is much higher than mine.

That is why I rather take a Master’s Degree and studied how to make Saturn V computers (2+).
(That’s beside the point that I took my information system course from the same university that Neil Armstrong got Electrical Engineering degree(s) from, if not some other honorary degrees from them after, and was an Alumni there, 40 years later, but yes, that’s the same information system with the total budget for it from back then in the 1950s - 1960s, until now.)

They were supposed to replace my phone yesterday, or today at the latest, and I was there at 8:10 pm, like 10 minutes after they closed to make sure I would be there the latest as they said, and did not want to confirm properly, only to be later informed that they had gave me wrong info and the guy said he would get new phones for it Friday, in 2 days.
I think I will quite working before then, or will have to call in sick again.

That and counting that my fiancée battery was going to explode is not a good sign.
I don’t think the courts would do anything if the phone did explode.
Sure, it would be usable as an act of war, but the courts wouldn’t do anything about it.
It’s funny they always have a clause to make their system inoperational in case of war, which is why the courts (or , at least, their courts) won’t do anything about it.
It’s also out of their jurisdiction for all the good reasons.

Today was a holiday and i’ve made good use of it. Downloaded GoT Season 8, began watching Unglorious Basterds, played a lot of WoWs to finish the current Directive, tried a new way to arrange the large plant I have in the blacony (it just keeps growing and spreading) and had a restful nap.

Now i’m off to bed, tomorrow i work but Saturday don’t. Weeeh!

Nighties lovelies!

Also: YT sent me this. I opened for the thumbnail and turns to be one of Chemical Brothers’ latest releases…

I can’t help to think of the chorus as “…the EVE of destruction…” with Aura voice…

I’m watching Another Life with Katee Sackhoff, she was in season 8 of 24 The Series with Kiefer Sutherland.

I’m 3 episodes in and so far it is proper sci-fi. I’m recommending this show to all the cool guys and gals in this thread!!

This thread is so cool man I’m tempted to watch all the videos and read all the cool replies for the whole day, I like all of you guys.

Ah, we’re cool you are cool, let’s keep cooling this cool thread a little cooler!

But now i’m off to bed. When is a right time to end a WoWs session? When you feel like things couldn’t go any more retard out of how much retarded they went. Call it a day and see you tomorrow.

Nighties lovelies!

Also: a giant RC model of a giant RL plane.

1:16 scale, 5.8 meters wingspan, 93 kg fueled and loaded. Two turbojets @ 3000 euros a piece and 4x 90 mm electric jets. Lots and lots of time.

It’s gonna make such a horrendous crash if ever…
