Oh man bro this edible is hitting me already....
  • Or just squirt some rubbing alcohol into it and give it a shake every once in a while. Cleaning your bong isn’t hard, and if it has gotten to this point it makes me question how clean you keep everything else around you.

  • What industry do you work in and what are the LPT the general public should know about it?
  • Louisiana had famously (or infamously) lax liquor laws for decades, so maybe that‘s what you’re thinking of. Shit like drive-thru daiquiri stores, where as long as they don’t put the straw in the cup it’s not considered an “open” container. So they can just hand you a cup full of liquor, and the straw separately.

    It’s also a large part of why New Orleans developed a reputation as a party town; Louisiana kept their drinking age at 18 while every other state was at 21, so all the college freshmen/sophomores would go to Louisiana during spring break because they could drink.

  • What industry do you work in and what are the LPT the general public should know about it?
  • Yeah, the main company for most hotels literally got the exclusive contract by bribing the hell out of all of the hotel owners/executives. And they were so notoriously shitty that they bought a smaller company a few years ago, just so they could change their name to the smaller company’s name and attempt to sidestep lots of the bad reputation.

  • Pastor’s daughter, 6, killed in freak badminton accident while on vacation
  • Something similar (but maybe not quite as tragic) is why my wife and mother-in-law lost their religion. My MIL was catholic, and initially tried to raise my wife as such. But my wife was really painfully sick for years as a child. Basically all of her elementary school years were spent either in pain or unconscious. She doesn’t even remember most of her childhood. Watching her go through it and not being able to do anything to help was what caused my MIL (and by extension, my wife) to lose religion. Because what kind of benevolent god would intentionally inflict that on a child?

  • Texas asks people to avoid using their cars
  • DART rail is fine if you live near a station. The vast majority of people do not. The rail lines are alright, but the bus system is laughably bad, so getting to and from a station is often an extra hour or two just to go a few miles.

    And that’s if they even serve your area. My daily commute isn’t possible via public transit, because there are no busses or trains that go anywhere near where I live. Like if I look up my commute on Google Maps, the “Bus/Train” option is just entirely greyed out.

  • Texas asks people to avoid using their cars
  • Also odd because conservatives consistently defund public transport. In many parts of the state, there aren’t even sidewalks so you’re forced to either walk through the grass (potentially impossible if it’s overgrown or fenced) or in the middle of the street.

  • Texas asks people to avoid using their cars
  • I mean, we already ride our horses to work /s

    Yes, I have actually been asked if we ride horses to work/school when people find out where I’m from. My typical response is “only on Tuesdays and Thursdays” with a very dry tone, and the looks on their faces never disappoints.

  • Texas asks people to avoid using their cars
  • If it was DFW, you’re almost certainly taking about the High 5 (exchange between I-75 and I-635,) or the Mixmaster, (exchange between I-30 and I-35.)

    Both were marketed as a way to eliminate traffic between the two highways. Both are now notorious for always having traffic, because more people started driving after they were finished. I’m not sure which one is actually taller, but the High Five certainly feels taller because you have buildings on each side where you can look out and see that you’re level with their middle floors.

  • Price gouging
  • You can also typically extend the shelf-life of produce by giving it a vinegar wash. Produce naturally has mold spores which will bloom over time and cause rot. Vinegar is acidic enough to destroy most mold spores. So just give them a quick dunk in some white vinegar, then rinse in clean water. It’ll destroy the mold spores and extend the shelf life by preventing rot.

  • Vimms Lair is getting removal notices from Nintendo etc. We need someone to help make a rom pack archive can you help?
  • At one point, I found a complete set of ROMs for every single game on retroachievements.com. It’s almost assuredly out of date by now, and I’m not saying it would have every single Vimm ROM…. But there would be a lot of overlap. If any are already wiped from Vimm and nobody has a backup, let me know and I’ll do some digging to see if I have anything comparable.

  • It’s quicker
  • There’s also the whole “kettles in America take longer to heat up, because America only has 120v electrical outlets while the UK has 240v, and therefore gets twice as much power for the same amperage” thing. That being said, I’m in America and I love my kettle. You just expect it to take 5-7 minutes to heat up, instead of 2-3. If I only want a single cup of something, then yeah I’ll use the microwave. But if I’m going to be making more than one cup, the kettle is my go-to.

  • deleted
  • Yeah, I have a piece of mission-critical gear that is controlled by a computer running Windows XP. Because the control program is written in Flash and modern systems won’t run it. Migrating to a modern system would require a complete rewrite in a new language, and would also likely kill a lot of functionality.

  • deleted
  • Yup, this. Cover your ass by putting shit in writing via email, (and bcc your personal email too, so they can’t just delete the emails off the mail server and pretend they never existed.) But besides that, if the boss wants to have a vulnerable system, then that’s their prerogative.

  • Internet Archive is in danger
  • Their argument towards fair use wasn’t ignored. It was inapplicable.

    It's ridiculous to assume that an organization whose main purpose is data archival would knowingly and blatantly ignore copyright law

    Except that’s exactly what they did. They knowingly and blatantly violated copyright law. They had a system in place to ensure fair use compliance. They intentionally disabled that system, in violation of fair use, to allow unlimited free downloads of the books they had archived.

    IA’s entire argument was basically “but we’re a library” and totally missed the part where even public libraries need to comply with copyright law. Even with ebooks, they can’t simply distribute an unlimited number of copies; They have licensing agreements in place, for a specific number of specific ebooks to be checked out at any one time. And they have to use time-locked DRM to ensure compliance, by automatically revoking users’ reading ability when their check-out time is up. IA did precisely none of that.
