How NASA might build its very first warp drive
A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein’s law of relativity.


HOLY SHIT WARP DRIVE IS PLAUSIBLE AGAIN

HOLY SHIT WARP DRIVE IS PLAUSIBLE AGAIN

I’ve got my little backpack for my dice and army lists, and I have my little minis bag for my army.  I think I’m ready for the tournament tomorrow. (Can you tell what faction I play?)

I’m playing in an Infinity tournament tomorrow.  I really need to get my lists done, because it’s a team tournament and I bet my teammate will want to see them eary. XD Oops.

Can you get chronic or acute bronchitis from binding?

theartoftransliness:

Zak: I’m pretty sure that bronchitis is caused by the lung irritation from viruses, bacteria, or particles and so binding then couldn’t be a direct cause. I don’t know if binding could make you more susceptible somehow, make it worse or make it more difficult to recover, though. That’s really a question that you’d need to ask a doctor. 

While it cannot cause bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi and bronchioles, often caused by allergens), it can cause issues with recovery if your binder is too tight.  When your binder is too tight, you cannot have a productive cough, and it is that cough that allows for the break-up and removal of excess mucous.  

Another thing to consider is that binding can have a serious impact on those with pneumonia, because, again, the lack of a productive cough to keep too much fluids from accumulating in the lungs.

If you are sick, I recommend loosening your binding slightly (add extra layers of shirts over top to hide any unwanted curves) if you must wear a binder in public.  If at all possible, and if you are comfortable doing so, I might stay home and keep the binder off until you are clearing up.
