Uhmm because it's not that easy. The provinces need time to figure out how they are going to sell, distribute and tax it. They need to set up the foundations for preventing minors from getting it and to test for it with impaired drivers.

But everybody who wants to smoke already smokes and nobody cares. You can go to your local weed store and just buy it... Today.

Honestly, if this law means that children have more access and driving is more dangerous than it is today, it was an utter failure. They should have just decriminalized it and left things as they are.

But I want my weed now!

Nuclear waste is small in volume, how viable would it be to launch it into interstellar space, voyager style?

Edit: ok ok I'm an idiot. To be honest I thought it was way way smaller in weight and volume than it turns out to be!!!

Now what happens if your rocket full of nuclear waste blows up over a city?

It bad enough with a rocket full of hydrazine goes boom...

No I don't care about that.

If it was white canadians i would feel the same way. Shit many hispanics are "white"

You can't illegally sneak in a country. If you are caught you should be sent back.

Canada would send me back if they caught me. Would they not?

I know white Canadians living in Arizona on expired visas. Not once have they been randomly pulled over and asked for their passport and deported. Nobody really considers them “illegals” - they’re just old people who don’t like Canadian winters. I have personally been pulled over by the border patrol in Arizona... They didn’t even bother to look in my passports of the 4 Canadians in the car. We could have been living there for illegally years. I’m pretty sure being white and speaking English was a big factor in their complacency...

And no, you wouldn’t get deported from Canada if you snuck in (which is trivial to do). US citizens can travel here fairly freely. At most, you might be asked to go to a border crossing and get a tourist visa.

To counter this cunning move the democrats have nominated a potato for president in 2020. No wait, their corporate donors have decided on a turnip instead.

Making your own tubes is some serious dedication.

I scratch buil but I’ll buy tubes, couplers and other parts. I 3D print a lot of things but if I couldn’t, I’d buy parts like centering rings, retainers and nose cones. I’ve turned a few small balsa nose cones... Tubes are pretty cheap and I usually just order a bunch of different sizes I can use for airframes or motor mounts.

Bulk materials like Kevlar, elastic, fabric for chutes, eye hooks, swivels can all be found around... Craft stores, hardware stores, etc...

I often buy bulk stuff (especially electronics) from China off amazon. Takes a month to get here, but the price is usually right.

For design, Open Rocket.

The V2. Despite being a weapon of war, it was the foundation for the rockets that would eventually power both the American and Soviet space programs.

Oh they can still sell plenty of weed in Ontario, since we're stupidly restricting the fuck out of it, it's gonna be like 1930's LCBO in Ontario.

No visible product, no sampling, government-only stores, strict price controls with zero competition, no bulk discounts, weekly purchase limits, and name registries.

There will still be a market.

Edit: No guys, Doug Ford did not promise to do things differently, he was asked once by a reporter if he'd be open to the idea of private weed stores and he said "I'd consider it", but given that this is the Conservative party, I won't hold my breath.

I posted yesterday about nobody wanting to buy their weed from the govt and got downvoted for it.

Ontario is going to be a shit show. Mind you, one thing Doug Ford does know how to is sell drugs so there’s hope yet....

I’m pretty sure I know how to interpret a motor designation.

The point was that they are only part of the information you need - especially for larger impulse motors.

2 points · 1 day ago

Let’s dissect a spec:


The F indicate the impulse is somewhere between 40 and 80 Ns.

The 40 indicates an average thrust of 40N

The 7 is the delay time.

And none of that is really useful...........

You need to find the spec sheet and look at the actual total impulse, and the thrust curve and burn time to really understand how the motor behaves. Many motors have a high initial and lower average thrust to get heavier rockets off the pad quickly - but many don’t. A 40ns motor will only get you half as high as a 79ns motor - but they’re both “f” motors and may have the exact same designation.

You can get the full spec for any motor from NAR and higher end motors will usually include this info on the package.

A good example are Aerotech E30 and F44 motors. One is a “full E” and one is a “barely F”. The F44 is a little faster burning but they perform almost identically....

Because electoral reform would almost certainly affect the future prospects of his party - a party that has held power for most of the country’s history largely due to our first past the post system.

It was simply not in his interest to follow through once he had a large majority government.

A large number of those bodies are Sherpa guides who were just doing a dangerous job to put food on the table. Still ambitious and dedicated I suppose - but with far different motives than the rest of the corpses up there.

It's funny how many of those luxury cars just don't even come with them from the factory...

Any largish field will do for that size rocket. Start with smaller motors and work your way up.

I’ve launched small rockets at the local school with the police enjoying the show. I doubt they’ll care. Just be safe, make sure your field is big enough, free of spectators, free of things that could be damaged by a falling rocket and use common sense.

For larger stuff, or if you’re super paranoid, join a club for the insurance - and for the fun of course. We sent up over 100 rockets at my last club launch. Super fun even just to go and watch.

Being scared and wary of outsiders was likely an excellent trait for humans, in the sense that it allowed them to survive to reproduce, 100000 years ago when we lived in small tribes competing for limited resources.

Sadly the intelligence required to recognize fear and distrust as an artifact of the evolution of our primitive primate brain is not a required trait for humans to reproduce prolifically in 2018.

In a way... Being frugal brought me financial stability and security. That removes an enormous amount of stress from your life.

I do enjoy squirrelling away money or buying or restoring or repairing something that is well used. There is a certain sense of satisfaction in sticking it to a system which is designed to get you to part with as much of your paycheque as possible.

Yeah fuck that guy! Let’s spend hundreds of thousands of tax dollars convicting him, placing him in prison and ruining his life with a criminal record just because this criminal fuck had the gall to try to get himself a job... These fucking losers deserve a stint in jail so they don’t try this shit again.

Scale it back a bit. On titan, instead of having Methane in your blowtorch, you would use pure oxygen (or an oxygen insert gas mix). The oxidizer and fuel are effectively reversed from how you would burn stuff in earth.

I’ve seen vids of guys doing this. Super dangerous to pump air into a methane atmosphere and introduce an ignition source. At one concentration you get flame. At another you get a bomb.

That’s one mature looking 12 year old.
