Seeing as Sauron is a known fictional character, I'm guessing aliens are infinitely more likely even if the chances of contact are infinitely small.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

- Lasers to contact aliens? You'd have as much luck contacting Sauron, because he's just as real.

- Elba as Bond? Fuck no. I will boycott any such film.

Samsung Q9 4K UHD QLED TV - Hands On Review

I'm not seeing the Q9 in 49" size, looks like 65" and 75" only.

depending on your usage this site does extensive tests on things that most sites don't, like input lag if you intend on using it for PC gaming or *gag* console gaming.

https://displaylag.com/best-low-input-lag-tvs-gaming-by-gamers/

not all panel sizes have the same specs so in the case of a samsung 49" vs the 55", the 55" panel can support 120hz but the 49" does not.

Ahh thanks for catching that. I deffo want 120hz so I'll go up to the 55" if I must.
The QLED I was looking at the other day was 240 hz.

13. Large hydropower dams 'not sustainable' in the developing world. Nov 7, 2018, 22:39 Simon Says
 
That has to be the most ignorant article on the subject of hydropower that I've ever skimmed.

"have contributed to climate change by releasing greenhouse gases from the decomposition of flooded lands and forests."

Even taking into account methane release from anaerobic decomposition as well as every CO2 molecule released during its construction and the production of its construction materials, hydropower still is the most sustainable form of electricity generation and the one with the smallest climate change footprint per kWh and the 2nd best energy return on investment ( EROI ).

At median, it releases 4 grams of CO2/kWhe. The closest 2nd is onshore wind @ 12, then nuclear @ 16, with the cleanest non-renewable @ 469. ( Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_generation )

On average, Hydropower's EROI ratio is 100, nuclear ( with centrifugal enrichment ) is @ 105 ( 10 with older techniques ). ( Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_returned_on_energy_invested )

12. New study discovers why coffee can protect the brain, and it has to do with the kind of roast you Nov 7, 2018, 22:03 Mordecai Walfish
 
I drink dark roasts exclusively, big fan of sumatra, and never any creamer or sweetener. I just switched to a french press a couple years back and can taste dem beans better than ever =)

Wish I would have known about the glory of this simple device sooner, but better late than never I guess.. well, unless you're brewing the perfect pot, which I've found takes about four minutes and twenty seconds, funnily enough.

The colors on the QLED are fantastic, but the OLED has great colors and true black.

OLED is probably fine for general movie watching but I would be concerned about image retention / burn in. Watch too much CNN and you might end up with BREAKING NEWS burned into the screen.

Yeah, those are all great choices, but iirc they are bringing Flash Sales back.

Physicists report electron is round—what does that mean?

I don't believe it. I'm going to start a group to oppose this research:
The Flat Electron Society

I'm going to build a steam powered electron microscope that will prove it. Please contribute to my Patreon. Thanks.
