Mad Physics Responds to MeFi Users
June 27, 2005 8:55 AM   Subscribe

How to Build a Cloud Chamber and How not to fool a Police Radar. A while ago some MeFi users sent in questions to Mad Physics Dot Com and those are the answers. Since MeFi often discusses science and technology and since they have sent good questions in before, if you have any other questions you can ask them yourself, or check out some of the other previously asked questions and experiments.

The asshole did it before and got away with it.

afrooz, you can't self-link. You are going to be banned for this. The accepted method of getting your link on Metafilter is to discuss the importance of your selflink in about 20 different threads and beg for someone to make an FPP out of it. See, e.g., insomnia_lj.

A double post of a self link....

Point 1) frykitty: I am not an asshole, I'm a 17 year old biomedical researcher.

Point 2) Everyone else: sorry, yes I understand the policy. This post was just a follow up to respond to questions from MeFi users. Therefore, if it was from MeFi, I thought I'd put the answers up for people to see.

I don't feel like this is an egregious action, but you may delete this post, or my account. I just hope you will consider the reasoning behind this post.

Also thanks for the tip dios, I didn't know that part of it.

Afrooz, your original post, to which this is a followup, was also a violation of the policy you claim to understand.

I stand by my assessment. Also: meta.

Most 17 year olds have figured out the internet. Sorry.
