Navy veteran sues SC VA hospital over cocaine misdiagnosis. by yomamascub in news

[–]Reverend_James 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I'm currently battling with the VA about covering my knees which were both dislocated on separate occasions while I was in the navy. It's a tough battle because for 2 of the 3 times it happened, Doc just gave me a bottle of motrin and told had me take the next shift off. He never wrote anything down so the VA says there's no record of this ever happening.

You see that Yield sign on the On Ramp? That means you need to yield to drivers already on the highway. They don't have to do anything for you.

TIL Water firms in the UK are still using Divining Rods to search for leaks and pipes. by MakoTrip in todayilearned

I think either his toy is broken or he doesn't know shit about how to use it. I use to work on underwater robots, and some things we had to locate were under the mud on the sea floor with a mostly dead transducer as the only thing to find it. We could park the boat above it, drop the ROV 8000' down, and fly right to it. Stick a robotic arm in the mud and pull it out first time every time... well I got it every time, most of the other pilots got it everytime, but the supervisor would dig around in the mud with both robotic arms for 20 minutes until one of us noticed it had been forced to the top of the mud and was visible in the rear camera just behind the ROV.

My kid might be a smart ass sometimes, but he doesn't fucking swear. Where the hell would he even learn those words anyway.

A teacher is handcuffed and jailed after criticizing school superintendent's raise a school board meeting. by modereddit in news

[–]Reverend_James 27 points28 points  (0 children)

If you actually watch the video rather than just repeating what news sources tell you, you'll see that she only spoke once she was recognized by the board during the Q&A. She was passionate but respectful. When they insisted that she was off topic (she wasn't) and the police told her to leave, she was upset but calm and left. After she was in the hall, he threw her to the ground, cuffed her, and dragged her out.

blockexplorer.com will call bcash Bitcoin, and Bitcoin Bitcoin legacy. by wisestaccount in Bitcoin

[–]Reverend_James 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The thing about Bcash is that it really is bitcoin, just as much as "bitcoin core" (as Judas calls it) is bitcoin. But to insist that either we call them "bitcoin cash" and "bitcoin core" or to say that Bcash should retain the primary name while the legacy fork gets a new one only serves to confuse people simple because of common usage.

When I say "Velcro" you probably imagine hook and loop tape even though Velcro also makes compression socks. While in a technical sense maybe it would be more correct to call one Velcro hook and loop tape and the other Velcro compression socks, in the practical world I can just call the more traditional one Velcro and specify only when I mean the other one. Same goes for bitcoin and bitcoin cash.

Egypt's gold supply is estimated to have increased 3-5% due to Mansa Musa. Think about that, one of the larger of the wealthy economies at the time, and this guy waltzes in with so much money to throw away that he personally shells out 3-5% of your entire country's money supply.
