    Someday, digital citizens around the world may have a Yale professor to thank for the supercool, extra-durable case protecting their smartphones.

    Jan Schroers, who teaches mechanical engineering and materials science, has created a thin, lightweight smartphone case that is harder than steel and as easy to shape as plastic. Schroers developed the technology for the cases in his Yale lab; now he’s ready for a partner to bring the product into mass production.

    “This material is 50 times harder than plastic, nearly 10 times harder than aluminum and almost three times the hardness of steel,” Schroers said. “It’s awesome.”

    For years, academic and commercial institutions have sought an effective technique for shaping these bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) — a new generation of strong-yet-pliable materials. Electronics casings, in particular, have been identified as a desirable application. Yet past attempts at finding a shaping process were unsuccessful.

    If your country would have been able to research against human rights/law, your country would've been at least as advanced as Germany. Not only that, but in those days you were drilled to be self-sacrificial ( Werner Otto Theodor Forßmann was self sacrificial enough to lay a channel into his own heart. He is the one that made it possible for you fat fucks to survive a cardiac arrest, for example ). Do you know why there was so much hatred? The Germans were conditioned to fear. And what is the natural reaction to fear? Either submissiveness or some sort of aggressiveness; the latter was propagated.
    You shouldn't waste your remaining brain for complicated issues, as you don't seem to get the gist of anything. Even FireCat knows better than you.

    And just what makes you think Nazi Germany was a fun place to be? Did someone shit in your brain?

    That boy does not understand the internet. Nor does he know very much about what he's talking about which makes it that much funnier.

    Does it matter? I'm not the one lecturing about why Nazi Germany was so fucking awesome.

    I'd do it again anytime, I just have to look for really stupid comments. Totally worth my time and energy. I'm Batman.

    No it doesn't matter at all, because you comment like a politician; you talk a lot, but at the end of the day, it's all unsubstantial and meaningless.

    What do you mean?
    No, I've been evaluating and degrading you over quite some time now. No need to ask stupid questions when you already know the answer. Though, I'll remember it for you, just for the reference.

    I'll write it down as: "Varine - unoriginal as fuck; probably stole his jokes from 12-15 y/o kids. Quite possibly thinks the internet is centered in 9gag. Likely to be a old man, due to his declining ability to remember". Is that OK for you or should I add in something else?
    No, because trolling is about playing pranks on people, the more obvious the prank is and the less aware the person he's playing the pranks on is, the better troll he is. But he is doing neither of that, hes just being annoying and provocative. Taking his piss and then returning that favor twofold is what I do ever since it's become dull trying to put up with most of your shit :) You've matured, in all honesty. The two as well, but they've become senile.
