I always thought the wii wasn't for me. I find a lot of elements...stupid and useless... I've had multiple chances to own a wii, but have turned them down... Lately a couple of good games have come out, but not enough to convince me to buy it though. So, do you think the wii is worth buying?

I was wondering how much a human body is worth, so I worked it out.I based it on a 100kg human, to keep the numbers simple, assuming commercial use of the materials, and worked in GBP:Oxygen (65kg) 32,274.16Carbon (18kg) 270.00Hydrogen (10kg) 10.00Nitrogen (3kg) 4.00Calcium (1.5kg) 2173.91Phosphorus (1kg) 0.25There are other elements in smaller amounts ("enough sulphur to make a box of matches, but nothing to strike them on"), so we'll add a few pounds for those, and the whole thing comes out at: 34,750 of your English pounds!So, who is going to start the first people-recycling centre? Soylent Green has nothing on this!

The iPad has came out quite recently, and ever since I have been thinking about getting one. I'd heard a lot of good things about it, but then again, I have also heard some bad things, so I'm not so sure what to do now. I would like some of your opinions on if you think if it is worth buying, or maybe if I should wait for a newer version to come out. Please, actually give me some reasonable answers, not something like "Oh, you shouldn't buy one because it's dumb..." or the sort. If you own an iPad, could you tell me if it has been useful for you and in what way?

Hi there. I don’t know if anyone can help me on this, but I was wondering on how much you would guess a napkin holder like this could sell for. The sides are made out of figured marble wood, and the base is purple heart. Figured marble wood is a rare and exotic wood sold online by the pound. I made this napkin holder as a gift for someone, and I am now wondering what something like this would be worth. I appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thanks!

So today I went down to some local woods with a hammer (Geode,granite,marble hunting) and I saw that 2 friends of mine had dug up a 20-30 pound rock. It was a heavy little bugger. So I swung the hammer at the rock for half an hour until I had about 30-50 small chunks of granite. The main reason I broke it was so that me and my friends could split it. One of my friends didn't want it. The other friend wasn't allowed to have it. All that was left was me. So I then realized that it was way too much to carry around. So I told another friends that didn't help do anything but polish the freaking thing with a brush *pauses and laughs* that I would give him all of it but 3 peices. I'm starting to regret saying that. So I wanna know... is granite worth anything/expensive?

This is sooo random, I thought I had to share it.I wanted to see if a picture is really worth1,000 words worth of data.the average word is 5 letters and a space (or puntuation), so six bytes.1,000 words would be 6000 bytes, or 5.859375 KB (1KB = 1,024 bytes!!!)A 500x375 px JEPG image is about 55 KB, so it is worth 9486 words (and a 3 letter word + a space).A thumbnail, however, is only 1.91 KB, so only 326 words...It would seem, however, that 326 words would convey more than the thumbnail, whereas the 9486 words would convey more than the mid-range image.Just some random geekiness :-D

Question by zack247 | last reply
The Large Hadron Collider(LHC) is to be unveiled this year. It is designed to solve the much talked about energy crisis, and hopes to do so, but can it be worth all of it? From Wikipedia- (On October 25, 2005, a technician, JosÃÂ© Pereira Lages, was killed in the LHC tunnel when a crane load was accidentally dropped. The construction of LHC was approved in 1995 with a budget of 2.6 billion Swiss francs, with another 210 millionfrancs (Ã¢ÂÂ¬140 M) towards the cost of the experiments. However, cost over-runs, estimated in a major review in 2001 at around 480 million francs (Ã¢ÂÂ¬300 M) for the accelerator, and 50 million francs (Ã¢ÂÂ¬30 M) for the experiments, along with a reduction in CERN's budget, pushed the completion date from 2005 to April 2007. 180 million francs (Ã¢ÂÂ¬120 M) of the cost increase have been due to the superconducting magnets. There were also engineering difficulties encountered while building the underground cavern for the Compact Muon Solenoid. In part this was due to faulty parts lent to CERN by fellow laboratories Argonne National Laboratory or Fermilab (home to the Tevatron, the world's largest particle accelerator until CERN finishes the Large Hadron Collider).  The total cost of the project is anticipated to be between US$5 and US$10 billion. On March 27, 2007, there was an incident during a pressure test involving one of the LHC's inner triplet magnet assemblies provided by Fermilab and KEK. No people were injured, but a cryogenic magnet support broke. Fermilab director Pier Oddone stated 'In this case we are dumbfounded that we missed some very simple balance of forces.' This fault had been present in the original design, and remained during four engineering reviews over the following years. Analysis revealed that its design, made as thin as possible for better insulation, was not strong enough to withstand the forces generated during pressure testing. Details are available in a statement from Fermilab, with which CERN is in agreement.)

I don't think I would actually decide to change PCs, but if I were to sell it let's say on Craigslist, what would be a good price? It's an HP Pavilion Slimline. Dual Core 2.50GHz Intel Pentium E5200. 800MHz System Bus 2MB L2 Cache. Running Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit with 3GB RAM and 286GB Hard Drive. An average HP keyboard and mouse both wired. No camera. CD R CD RW drive. 3 USB ports broken on back but 4 port Rocketfish USB Hub. A Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 GPU at 1GB. If that's not enough info just let me know. I hope it is at least maybe $350! Last question, is $699.99 a good price for a HPE h8-1360t? Its 3.4GHz and a 2GB NVidia GeForce GT630 with 8GB RAM and 1T hard drive, just to sum it up.
Question by knexpert1700 | last reply
I have a HP Pavilion Slimline at 2.5GHz Dual-Core processor. It's using a Radeon 7750, a DVD RW CD RW optical drive, and a 286GB I think it is solid state hard drive. It's 2009 with an intel pentium processor and Windows 7 operating system. It has 3 USB 2.0 ports that are broken but with a 4 usb 2.0 port hub and 3GB of RAM. I would like to know if it would be worth it buying a new computer OR if it would be better buying an Intel i7 processor (3rd or 4th gen) and installing it manually. What are some problems I could face with installing one manually? I've seen processors that have Intel HD 4000 graphics in it already without a graphics card, would that interfere with my Radeon 7750? Could I fix that? Would it be worth buying a new gaming computer or would it be better buying an intel i7 processor at 3rd or 4th generation? If I were to buy a computer, I would buy one of the following: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-HP-Pavilion-HPE-H8-1360T-PC-i7-3770-3-4GHz-1TB-Windows-7-Desktop-/111163226377?pt=Desktop_PCs&hash;=item19e1d83909 http://www.ebay.com/itm/CyberpowerPC-AMD-FX-Series-8GB-DDR3-2TB-HDD-Capacity-Desktop-PC-Windows-8-64-Bit-/290968920890 http://www.ebay.com/itm/CyberpowerPC-AMD-FX-Series-8GB-DDR3-1TB-HDD-Capacity-Desktop-PC-Windows-8-64-Bit-/290971505030 Or something that is below $720 and is at least quad core i7 or at least hex core AMD. I would much prefer Intel i7 though. And I would need at least my Radeon 7750 or better. I only use Windows 7, not Windows 8 so if it comes with 8 I will install 7. If I buy an i7 processor and install it into my current computer, what processor would be compatible with my computer? LASTLY: I will pay no more than $350 for the i7 processor. Thanks for reading!

I have now already two of these huge ball valves we have on a machine at work.Soon I will have one or two more...The replacements always cost well in excess of $500, just for the part, excluding labour.If I am correct than even these big guys can be dismantled like their small cousins.Screw the screwed side open, remove the turning mechanism and them push the actual valve out.Please correct me if that might be different!The actual problem with ours is that after a few years of 24/7 use they start to leak through - not out in anyway.A visual inspection without taking them apart show build up on the ball part.No scratch marks or other damages that I can see.Where there is no build up it is shiny like a mirror.The seal are blue and clearly show the same abuse as the ball.I tried with some aluminium poking tool I made up and the debris is really hard and baked on onto these seal rings.My assumption is that only the seals started to fail.And as they are consumables I am starting to wonder if it is worth trying to find replacements and to clean up the valve after taking it apart.With only a manufacturer (from the machine, not the valve) part number but no markings or anthing on the valve itself I struggle to find any online place to check for genuine rebuild kits :(Any links for sites with lots of balls valves pictures (to be motorised) so I might one that looks identical?Last but not least: How to unscrew the damn thing?? LOLI tried in a vice with the largest set of plumbing pliers I could boorow but it won't budge at all.Would need an about 48mm spanner to grab the "nut" part of the valve.The pliers are almost a meter long but even swearing like the worst guy in town did not help to make anything move.Before cutting a custom made spanner from some re-inforcing steel plates: Is there any proper way of unscrewing a big ball valve?

Hey guys! I bought a Chinese knock off 60W variable temp soldering iron for $15CAD and used it intensively for more than a year now and the end of the part holding the tip just started to rust away and doesn't hold the tip in place anymore. Needless to say, I have enough of this and want to get a decent soldering iron, I was planning to get the Hakko FX888D as you can't get the analog knob model anymore but it's only available online from the US and comes up to $180-200CAD with the shipping which is way too expensive. I can get the TrackPower TK-950 (TeamCheckpoint TC-950 is basically the same one but the older version) for $130CAD with a 5 years warranty at my local store, it seem like a clone of the Hakko 936 but what kind of quality is it? Perhaps like the Yihua? If you guys know anything about it or any other recommendations on soldering stations I can get for around the same price with better quality in Canada, it'd be great! I do a lot of soldering through hole only for now and I also do a lot of desoldering, this is how I get most of my electronic components so I need a soldering station that will last me for a while and that doesn't smell like a Chinese knock off out of the box. Thanks for your time. :) -Electrospark

Ahhh... I feel sometimes the k'nex gun builders community lacks a bit artistic visions, so I scraped the worldwide web for some images that would pump some artistic juices into the community. With no offence to our replica builders out there, (you guys are awesome at what you do!) but I feel that building a k'nex gun is an art. Trying to create that right balance of flow of a gun while incorporating a twist that catches the persons eye is a challenge, a skill, and I feel may be a bit more challenging than making a replica. With replicas you have the comfort of a defined shape and measurements, when guns like these (some virtual, I know one is real, the harmonica gun) are built to be within a similar scale but again with that unusual and pleasing twist of the imagination. Again I don't mean to offend anyone with the idea that replicas are not cool, replicas are awesome and I find it really hard to stay within a replicas measurements (more power to the people who can). I would just like to see some more unique visions of the builder. Build a gun that defines you and your vision of what a great gun looks and feels like. Then make it perform how you want it too. It's a complex process capturing the beauty of a well crafted k'nex gun through not only aesthetic appearance, but physical performance. These unique guns are what defines us as a K'nex gun community, a community of artists. At the end of the pictures, I've included a couple of my best Art. (two which didn't perform as planned but nailed appearance)

I bought a new car last week and while doing the final walk around inspection before leaving the lot, I noticed the tire valve stems all had green caps. I asked the salesperson about them. She informed me that the dealership refilled all of their new cars' tires with N2. And then she rendered a rehearsed pitch about the benefits of N2 vs. air, less leakage, little tire pressure change and so on. By that time I just wanted to get the hell out of there and go home. I started thinking about the N2 issue today and after checking around, I found that it is very difficult to find places to refill the tires with N2 and those that do have it charge $5 to $10 US per tire for a refill. As of now, I plan to refill the tires with regular air when needed and throw the green caps away. My question is, does anyone have any real world experience with N2 inflated tires and any bits of advice or information to pass on. Thanks
