  1. my man, you have no idea. some 23yo kid from Terrell Hills was telling me a week ago or so about how he and his buddies went in on a key so they could have half for themselves and then just sell the rest at their friends club/bar so they could have their stash for free. it’s the same shit your stoner roommate might have done with weed 15 yrs ago. he was very surprised to find out that’s a Federal crime and will get your life steamrolled. fun note- his aunt is a former Fed ass. DA. fuckin idiots.
  2. To be fair, Johnson missed fish camp because he was at UT...
  3. *when client gets 15-25yrs for attempted murder... ’Well, at least you’re still aggy. We can’t yank that away from you!”
  4. why not just say fuck it and actually put a Golden longhorn at the entrance so we are sure to offend God also
  5. I clicked on this, literally while I was taking a shit. not just on the toilet, but whilst a steaming slury of hot stew was being poured out of my ass. great thread tho
  6. Fuck man. Made of iron. -didn’t he kill like 50 men and fend off an entire assault by himself, then fought thru the heaviest fighting to resupply his guys?
  7. My man, NOBODY does tacky like the state of Texas
  8. Rice always pops out something pretty cool every 3-5 years are so and one of the latest is 3D printed plastic that is structurally as strong as diamond. The technology continues to evolve, but 3D printing is still mostly used for creating prototypes or parts that won’t have to endure tremendous stresses or rigorous wear and tear. That might not always be the case, however, as researchers at Rice University found a way to 3D print complex patterns resulting in plastic objects that are almost as hard and durable as diamond. The complex crisscrossing and zig-zagging patterns that are used to build up the structures of these polymer cubes are far from random; they’re strategically calculated and engineered to give these objects their incredible strength, but can be tweaked and tuned to exhibit other amazing properties as well. The patterns are based on tubulanes, which are theoretical microscopic structures made of crosslinked carbon nanotubes that were predicted to have remarkable properties in 1993 by chemist Ray Baughman and physicist Douglas Galvão. Tubulanes could be used to manufacture revolutionary materials that are both strong and lightweight but to date, the structures haven’t been successfully created given the challenging logistics of manufacturing with carbon nanotubes. It turns out that the predicted properties of tubulanes aren’t limited to just objects that are manufactured with atomic-scale structures. As detailed in a recently published paper in the Small journal, the Rice University researchers discovered that even when those complex patterns and structures were scaled up so that they could be recreated using 3D printers, they still exhibited those predicted properties like strength and extreme compressibility, despite being rigid structures. The researchers blasted two cubes—one made from solid polymer, and one made from a polymer printed with a tubulane structure—with a projectile traveling at 5.8 kilometers per second (which is close to 13,000 miles per hour). Neither cube was destroyed, but while the solid polymer block was left with a huge dent and cracks propagating all the way through compromising its strength, the other cube stopped the projectile by its second layer, leaving the rest of it completely intact and undamaged. The assumption is that a porous structure reduces an object’s stopping power, but in practice, the complex polymer lattice in these cubes makes them able to compress and collapse to absorb the kinetic energy of an impact and contain the resulting damage so that it only affects a minimal area. This research could have wide-reaching effects on countless fields that are reliant on materials that are both lightweight and strong. Everything from aerospace, to architecture, to even the military could benefit from this new approach to manufacturing, and it could potentially even breath new life into 3D printing. Parts or components that had to be made from metal or ceramics to be adequately durable could potentially be manufactured from cheaper polymers now. Although it might take some time to convince soldiers that rolling into battle inside a plastic tank is just as safe as being surrounded by steel armor.
  9. Haven’t checked but I’d bet a dollar it’s a public school
  10. So I take it Chris Mortensen’s son was a hell of a wing man
  11. Hahahaaa as a motorcyclist in Austin for 14 years I will just state, y’all are fucked/
