what would happen if you put a cool ranch dorito in one track and a pringle in the other?

Will It Collide?

That's how they made Wild-N-Mild Ranch Fritos.

I love this, but I can't get past how the narrator sounds like David Mitchell.

Years ago I helped verify the design of the detector chips that went into this. Just about every device circuit in it broke every applicable design rule we had at the time.

Do tell, Chum. Also not sure whether you mean that in a good way or a bad one.

chumbucket
They challenge the technology they are manufactured in because, to act as pixel detectors, they need to design devices to withstand irradiation from particle events. So they don't use your typical transistor design. In many ways it is a bit like a ccd you find in digital cameras but with a much finer sensitivity.

Forgive my ignorance, but was it because it was bad design or that it was ahead of its time?
Bisekrankas
Was supposed to be a reply to chum

chumbucket
Not really ahead but more like out of the realm of normal transistor design.

Where's the damn planet sucking black hole! You DISAPPOINT science!

I continue to be impressed by the utility of the philosophical observation "If you want to know if anything truly exists, try hitting it really, really hard"

as for that bottle of hydrogen gas, they have one conspicuously labeled "PROTON SOURCE" in huge letters but thats actually a decoy, the real bottle of hydrogen is hidden and nondescript like most important things.
