There are plenty of straight shooters with gold borders, so if you want one, I guess you will have to post more!


Also, your avatar is gorgeous. SEM image?

Huh, I didn't even know those existed and spent a lot of time trying to figure out what you meant.

Congrats!

I assume somebody already explained it in the last 2 pages.

TLDR version:

We are coming for you.

Well,you taught me a lesson today Troob.
I never even noticed those different coloured borders before..
Looks like we are in the same club.

Years back we had "silver contributor" or "gold contributer" tags after our posts,I guess this is an evolution of that.

Well spotted!

Thanks... I think. I mean, that's nice and all, but I would rather have 40% by volume


a reply to: tothetenthpower

Right... Well... I had better get the kettle on then! One lump or two?

SWEET JESUS! If you had not noticed your border, I can understand why! Just LOOK at those star WATS and karma scores! Holy bloody hell!

There is talk of cake.

Talk of cake is dangerously fattening in and of itself. I am up for it!

At this point, abstaining from cake is not going to make a vast amount of difference!

Haha maybe one day, just keep chipping away I guess.
For the record, I like your debating style man, you don't whine when people are not being all careful with their words like many fragile and delicate souls seem to expect. We have rarely crossed swords but when we have it has never been a whining session, just robust debate, nice one, I like that you are a member here.


...and yep thanks, SEM image, from my local beach. I love the tiny 'can't usually see it' world

Dude...

Feel the same way. Its always a pleasure to have discourse with you, no matter which side of any given issue we end up on.

Have you ever seen pyrites under one of those? About eighteen years ago there was a really fantastic installation at our local museum, in which a JVC video microscope was set up, and you could put whatever you wanted on it, and look at it. They had some pretty awesome stuff set up that you could look at, various minerals with phosphorescent stria, crystals, sedimentary rocks, and of course, you could bring things in as well!

I can only imagine how cool it would be to have access to an SEM on the same level, just walk in off the street and think to yourself "damn, I could really go for a peek at that verdigris covered coin I have in my pocket!".

I can thank Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre for the avatar, I reckon if the Uni charged for a a pic of samples from non-students then they could make a fair amount of extra cash to contribute towards research or student welfare.

...wow, pyrites is amazing under SEM

I stand as proof that gold borders mean that the member may be full of crap.

So all I am is statistical validation of the premise?

I'm cool with that!

I reckon they probably could make a very tidy little profit. OOOH! They should print T-Shirts of the results! That would look bonkers!

I'd absolutely love to see the intricacies of pastry in a quality Cornish pasty under an SEM.

Bow down to my numbers and fear me,unworthy mortal!
Seriously though,I haven't got a clue where those numbers came from..
I am not that busy or productive round here.

Massive unmentionable T+C violation.
