I was taking a walk in Kobe, and I (for real) saw a guy taking a piss on the side of the street, barely hidden by his truck, IN DOWNTOWN KOBE...

I figured if he could go in the streets, so could I, so I did... 

The police waited until I was done to point out the Japanese man only took a piss...   :D

#28569 The NFL Playoff system.

Posted by Khas on 25 November 2013 - 11:34 PM

It's not individual injuries that are the problem.  It's the cumulative effect of them.  There's only so much doctors can do, not to mention the fact that the body naturally wears itself out over the years.  In pro football players, the sheer amount of stress their bodies go through each game merely accelerates this process.

Which is exactly why most pro football players retire when they're 30.  Their bodies are worn out right when they've hit the prime of their life.

That... vaguely sounds like the wrestler my cousin and I made for some WWE video game.  We called him "The Mutant".  He had green skin, purple hair, an orange goatee, wore only wrestling shorts, assless chaps, and sunglasses, and did a very... feminine... shimmy when he entered the ring.  The effect was... unnerving

I used to like Cena but he's getting too much push from WWE that it is ridiculous.


WWE needs better writers as they have been rehashing the same few stories over and over again. Get rid of the McMahons.

#28452 ASVS Research Project 001 - Star Trek Power Generation and Use Levels

Posted by Tyralak on 02 November 2013 - 04:05 AM

As promised, this is the first ASVS collaborative research project. These projects will work by a topic being raised, video evidence being submitted in the form of clips, discussion of the examples, and conclusions drawn. This is specifically a scientific exercise, so please do your best to be objective. We all have our favorites in the debate area, but with these research projects, we need to put those aside. These topics will never be locked, because even as conclusions are drawn, the answer is not always final. New evidence and new understanding can always be brought to light in any of these projects. So, if you feel you have something to add to a project, even if it has lain dormant for a very long time, feel free to bump the thread. Now, on to the first subject.


Star Trek power generation and usage levels. This has always been a nebulous issue, due to many statements which seem on the surface to contradict each other. I began doing some independent research on my own after the success of Brian's Isoton theory. The question being raised is: How much power do ships in Star Trek generate, how much is used for various systems, the power level of starship shielding and the power of energy weapons? I have numerous examples captured, and thanks to Brian's tireless efforts with video capture, many examples I didn't have to capture on my own. All evidence should be in the form of video clips in context. Please avoid five second "gotcha" clips without any background. If you do not have video capture equipment, or do not have the source material, please provide the episode and quote, and I will locate the appropriate clip and insert it into your post. In some cases exact power levels are given. In some cases, implications are made with partial information. It will be our job to take all these examples and thread them together to form a cohesive theory.


First clip I will present is the famous scene in TNG: "True Q". In this clip, Data is asked how much power is being generated in the warp core.


OK. So, Data states the warp core is "generating 12.75 billion gigawatts per...." Then he's interrupted. The script says the sentence was supposed to end with "per second". Some people (including a certain foul tempered Canadian) assume Data is an idiot, because you don't express power as "watts per second". That is incorrect. Watt-second is a measurement of power. Watt Second.

So, if we were to take this number as stated, what sort of functions was the ship performing? Is this peak power output, or is it nominal output? Since the ship isn't burning up, it's obviously using the amount of power it's generating. These two clips taken just before and after the incident, respectively indicate that the ship is not at warp. At best, it's at impulse.




Notice the lack of warp effect.




Notice in the windows, the starfield is not moving.


Also, there is no threat, so shields are down and weapons are not powered. The reactor is apparently providing power to normal ship systems. Life support, navigation, communications, computer core, navigational deflectors, sensors, lighting, artificial gravity, holodecks, etc. Impulse engines supposedly have their own fusion reactors, so they likely wouldn't be drawing from the main warp core. From the indications I see here, it leads me to conclude that 12.75 exawatts is the amount of power generated and used in normal ship operations. Essentially the equivalent of sitting at a stoplight.


But what about this clip from TNG "The Dauphin"?



It's a very strange quote. It seems to conflict the bulk of other references in Trek. The only explanation I have, is that Riker was talking about power generated for the short range communications array. Given Data's comment "Nevertheless, that is what's needed to penetrate the atmosphere."


If it was referring to the total output of the reactor, it would conflict with this quote from TNG "The Masterpiece Society"



Interestingly enough, if Geordi was talking about total reactor output, it would be contradicted by many other references. My personal theory, which seems to be supported by a quote from Voyager is that he was talking about the plasma in the power conduits.


If both of those quotes were indicative of total reactor output, then this rifle would be producing more power than a Galaxy Class starship.



These clips from Voyager indicate very high power usage for individual systems.


From VOY "Good Shepherd"



From VOY "Pathfinder"



In this clip from VOY "Revulsion", we're shown how much power is going through a standard power conduit. It also gives us an indication of what a Borg exoskeleton can handle.



I have many more examples, including ones directly related to shield and Phaser strength. However, this is a good start for the project.

Posted by Tyralak on 03 October 2013 - 01:29 AM

She shot, and did unto, a metal pot with a phaser, yes. But some would argue that is not true vaporization.


No, it didn't look like vaporization. Since it was strictly limited to the pot and not the contents, it would be using the disintegration properties of a Phaser. If it were vaporization, the thermal energy would have destroyed the contents as well.
