I had an albino leaped gecko for about eight years and my parents could never figure out why I loved that little guy. They're more into bunnies and chickens

Bunnies and chickens? In Boston?

I wish. My family lives in California, where they breed Holland Lops as a hobby

The bunnies sound fascinating. My mom used to raise rabbits when she was a kid.

 

I will be happy to get a place for my son and I where we can have animals again. We miss having them.

Gonna need transparent aluminum

 

I'm afraid that's not gonna be possible... Aluminium is a silver-white metal, no matter what you do to it.

You could, of course, give it another colour by mixing it with something else, but you can't make it transparent that way. The only way it could kind of become transparent is by making it very, very thin but that basically defeats any reason to use aluminium for whatever you're using it for (typically either isolation or because it's both light and strong).

But aluminium oxinitride isn't aluminium. There's oxygen and nitrogen in there. According to the article, it's only about a third aluminium.

 

Also a big difference: It's a ceramic, not a metal (like pure aluminium).

 

Looks like a pretty awesome material though.

That's why it's transparent aluminum.

 

Also, it's a joke and a Star Trek reference.

(Eats one of the welcome brownies. Still good and yummy.)

 

Hope everyone is good. Just curious if there is someone I should check in with about my acceptance here, and access to boards. In the meantime, I will try to be patient, and eat brownies.

    • I also think skin color is quite prevalent in WoT.  Jordan went out of his way to describe some if the different ethnic groups of people in WoT so yes i will be upset if people are cast as characters part of different looking ethnic groups simply because of perceived politicial correctness/sjw BS.   And it works any way....if someones who was supposed to be black ends up being played by a white guy or any which way it happens will be annoying and detract from the show at least to me. 
    • Theres an over 1000000 person online petition that might disagree with the bold....lol.
    • If we compare the 20th century and the updated 21st century we can analyze millions of things which we have been discovered in this world and is being ready for new and modern things. In all the fields or categories of life including professional services, personal services, academics, thesis college writing services, other lifestyles are too full of technologies, modernization, and updations but for all aspects and behind all these reasons is just a word "Creativity" these creativities makes the world bright and colorful. It is the only thing in the world which makes the person unique and special in this world and this is also a form of competition and updations of the world.
    • I am currently rereading WOT for the first time since first reading it. I was just reading the following quote from chapter 12.   “You must handle it,” Moiraine said in answer to something unheard from Lan. “He will remember too much as it is, and no help for it. If I stand out in his thoughts. . . .”   I am trying to figure out what this might be referring to and can't remember what it might be. If somebody could point out what this is meant to reference I would appreciate it. 
    • skin color is irrelevant in wot and I could care less how they cast it.  If they go by the books there will be many races and cultures and main characters like Tuon will be black.  All that is great, no problem.  Just hope they keep the modern political narratives out of this.  I want it to be more like game of thrones where they can do surprising things without offending someone.  If they have to be politically correct then it will ruin the tv show.   One of the key traits of the wheel of time was all the different perspectives and all the communication barriers that would crop up between different groups of people.  hopefully they can let all that shine and they will need a very diverse cast to make it happen.
