Re: Mod coup

What I love about snowflakes is that they're such a perfect (and beautiful) example of the underlying, emergent symmetry in nature. In their case, six-fold radial symmetry. This is a snowflake under a microscope...

The crystal lattice. There is so much fascinating beauty in nature if you look closely.

(Sorry, I know this is off subject... I need a nap).

Ok, so what is going on now? Are 22's Tesla ban cannons back online? Will FMF and Ticino Tom become Mods too?
Tune in next week for the next exciting instalment. Same mod-time, same mod-channel.

It's mostly now used when the group thought is challenged. Or something.

Can they really? How big does a snowflake have to be? Or is it a "drop a penny off the Eiffel Tower" deal?
I've passed several nights outside and the only thing protecting me from a death by snowflakes and the cold is a tent and a good sleeping bag. I guess the people that applies snowflake to other people has never worried about this. Yes, snowflakes are nice and delicate, but they only come along deadly temperatures outside.

I'll probably be first, please stay in line! A good usual sign of an upcoming ban is Chuff chuffing out his trade-mark copy-paste unchecked, as per usual, Greenmount and Panckackes liking the offensive comments and then it's a matter of time...or getting mod powers back

Well, it's not like there's a mad dash to do you, so I suppose you had best do what you can.
So you're still mad about me rejecting you. Don't worry you're far from the only one, get over it and move on.

I doubt that the terminal velocity of a snowflake can be high enough.

The terminal velocity of a penny isn't going to kill you either. It'd hurt a bit but far from deadly. It's limited by it's shape which will make it spin. Now a 5CHF coin could do a little more with the mass in it.
