obstructed clothes line invisible clothes line obstacle by Char0n on April 23rd, 2014, 3:18 pm
you gotta be on the look out... always... i mean its one thing to be looking where you are going but when its just past sunset... or sundown... which ever you honestly prefer... and you are full sprint through some old maid's back yard for one reason or another... and you get clipped from the top end... your gonna end up having to pick yourself up again and dust yourself off before you get going again...
no joke, that happened to me once... years ago... ran right smack in the kisser into a wire pulled near taught across a distance perpendicular to my path... but ain't that the way its gonna go... gotta take your time when your in a rush... no need to nearly kill yourself in such a w w e style... what with more signifigant victories to be had than getting somewhere you are already late in arrival of...

Aliens don't like digital TV by penguin42 on November 8th, 2009, 11:35 am
Pity those poor aliens; there they are many light years away watching our old TV and trying to understand us humans - they're probably trying to figure out episodes of the Twilight zone - but they're in for a shock - Digital TV.

The argument that aliens (which my view is probably do exist somewhere) could figure out a lot about earth from our radio and TV transmissions seems to make sense to me - but where as old analog signals are pretty easy to figure out without much context, I reckon Digital TV signals are pretty much impossible.

OK, so even if you can figure out the raw modulation (which with the latest QAM varients is hardly trivial) you then have to get past the extremely complex error correction algorithms. Even then if you have a bit stream you have to understand MPEG, both transport streams and the video and audio - they're all pretty arbitrary - it takes a skilled engineer months of work to decode MPEG with the help of the specs - I just don't believe it's possible without...

Johannes Wolfgang von Goethe
