If that was the US, he would have been shot.

Whataboutism doesn't change the fact the UK cops tasered a dude they hired to help them with race relations.

That's pretty bad. The fact you think citing US issues makes this less of a problem is part of the problem.

Still reading appreciating. Not sure what you're getting at.

Approaching. As in nearing.

Right and I appreciate what you're saying but it says appreciated.

It was likely a defect in the tower that went undetected.

That, combined with an unusual uptick in winds and you'd have the tower go down quite easily. There's actually a video of that occurring. (in fairness, this one occurred during a storm)

Overall, unless there are people in the immediate vicinity, it's pretty harmless. It goes down right in the area it stands. You'd only have a problem if crews are out working while this happens.

This is a super specific question but I figured since NYC is a fashion capital according to some circles that somebody might have a good suggestion.

So I'm looking for a Ushanka winter hat. It's one of those Russian style winter hats.

I'd normally order online but I'm worried about sizing and would rather find a spot around the city that I could visit and try out.

Would anybody have a suggestion for a hat shop in the NYC area that would likely have this type of hat?

Because drug addiction is a neurological disease.

While people certainly make the first choice in trying the drug, once it gets engrained in the brain it becomes a disease. They are in a self-destructive place and it's killing them. The argument is pretty clear to the vast majority of society.

It looks painful af, but did it work?

The problem is the casting after the fact.

So while applying traction to the spine makes logical sense in straightening a person's back, the casting hurts you in the long run. Even today, the argument of casting a person's back is debated because of the unintentional consequences. More doctors are looking at muscle conscious alternative casting systems which work with the muscles instead of overpowering them.

When people wear a cast, their backs are supported by the cast rather than their muscles. This can cause a side-effect of muscle weakening. This is a problem because those muscles are necessary for proper back support. You can unintentionally worsen scoliosis if you weaken your back muscles with a brace that overcompensates for your back muscles.

Who would not want you to marry their daughter with that username.

DingDongInDaPingPong 1 point

He likes me.

That being said, he's also the type of dude who has an expectation of grandchildren and the type of life he wants for his daughter. It las less to do with what she wants and more do to with what he wants.

DingDongInDaPingPong 3 points

Her father was the one who wanted me to marry her.

Her family is loaded and I know her through some social circles. We've gone out previously and she's a really nice person. That being said, we are more friends than anything else. We constantly butt heads so the idea that we would be marriage material is kind of a joke.

Her father wanted me to marry her. He brought it up multiple times. I kept insisting that it was a bad idea and I kept explaining why it couldn't work. He absolutely did not care. The guy is straight up insistent that he wants me to marry he daughter. Can't do it.

I miss worded the question. I meant, your Mom is more likely to kill your Dad and not you? When it comes to life insurance policies?

DingDongInDaPingPong 2 points

My dad is dead. His heart was more likely to kill him than my mom.

rocker3k 1 point

Ok, I’m sorry to hear that. But in a hypothetical situation?

DingDongInDaPingPong 2 points

My mom was madly in love with my dad. She'd sooner have killed herself than my father.

They mostly just wanted dieting tips.

Meanwhile, there's no universal standard for setting up a diet. Diets are reflective of lifestyle and unless the diet is calorically negative and is something you can follow, it's not going to work.

My diet is great for me. It probably sucks for some people.

Two examples from the US.

Flights are flights.

Again, you're circumventing the reality of the situation which further validates my point that you're defensive on the subject.

TrumpMadeMeDoIt2018 2 points

The US air industry is not exactly known to make decisions on who they dismiss based on rational risk analysis.

I am not circumventing - you are. I was asking you to back up your justification for singling out pregnant women with data showing they are a higher risk than the average passenger. Instead you revert with two stories about people with allergies. How is that relevant?

Should I guess why you are circumventing?

"you're defensive on the subject."

DingDongInDaPingPong 1 point

The constant need to try and get the last word is validating the defensiveness I'm talking about.

I'm going to go ahead and grant you the last word so you can get this out of your system. It's obviously a sensitive topic for you and I wouldn't want to trigger you more than I have.

Salmon.

Specifically lox. Lox are salmon slices which have been treated in a brine and seasoned to delicious perfection. They're high in sodium so you have to go easy but they're a wonderful thing when enjoyed moderately.

lostaoldier481 1 point

This. Salmon is what the flesh of God must taste like. And its so easy to prepare too. If you mess up salmon then you are doing something seriously wrong.

And its so easy to prepare too.

If more people realized that all you needed to cook fish was a piece of aluminum foil and a convection oven, they'd definitely be less intimidated by the process.

Actually i'd feel much better if i knew he got to rot in a cell rather than giving him the fast way out.

DingDongInDaPingPong 1 point

I wouldn't.

People escape from prisons. Knowing the person is still alive and might somehow get out to do it again to someone else would be my worst fear.

It's easy to make that argument but people don't rot in cells anymore. That's especially true when the U.S. prison system is slowly transitioning from crime and punishment to prisoner rehabilitation.

MrDohh 2 points

Yeah it happens i guess but it's very rare so i wouldn't worry about it.

Well...rehabilitation is better than revenge so im all for it. We already have that in Sweden.

DingDongInDaPingPong 2 points

Do you really believe you could rehabilitate someone who rapes and murders a child?

I'm not talking about non-violent crimes which didn't hurt anyone. I'm taking about crimes where somebody has acted with a level of brutality which goes above and beyond the arguments of rehabilitation.

Angry Birds is just a reimagining of this old school flash game called Castle Crashers.

The game involved you hurling rocks at castles to destroy them.

The uncomfortable truth is you don't have to be the first person to do something to be successful at it. You just have to figure out a way to do it better than everybody else. Oreo did the same thing with Hydrox cookies and look at them now.

It really annoys the hell out of me that a company as large as Google doesn't have a team dedicated to regulating their extensions.

It's only the most popular web browser on the internet. The idea that you wouldn't have a team dedicated to dealing with these sorts of issues on the same day they are reported is somewhat ludicrous. I'm not telling Google that they're being shit for making mistakes. They happen and nothing can change that.

That being said, if you don't have a department dedicated to working on malicious app extensions and testing them before they reach the market, that seems like a pretty shit system.

If apps had to wait a week or two for approval so Google could verify they weren't malicious, I think we'd all appreciate it and be patient.

This picture was taken from this music video at 1:59, but there’s not much more to go off of than from the captured frame

Are you certain this wasn't something they created for the music video itself?

It's possible they just recorded some footage to be played in the background.

I'm super excited about this.

I live in NY and the wind turbine projects have been something we've been talking about for years now. The Long Island project is great but they have also been putting off the Staten Island wind project for quite some time.

Staten Island used to be home to the Fresh Kills dump. It was the sanitation center for the rest of the city. After it was shut down, they converted it to the largest eco-park in the city.

There were talks of using some portion of the land to establish a wind farm. Staten Island is apparently very high up (geographically speaking) so the height would give a wind farm a high amount of winds for production.

As so often, your budget limits your choices.

Vintage or current production, Zamak, brass, or steel, lots of choices.

A Maggard Razors V3 head with any handle you like https://www.maggardrazors.com/product-category/safety-razors/maggard-razors-safety-razors/, a Fatip Gentile https://www.maggardrazors.com/product/fatip-classic-testina-gentile-closed-comb-razor-chrome-finish/, or a vintage Gillette Tech, Super Speed or Slim / Super Adjustable are all good choices. Stainless steel is even more solid (over engineered for the task, to be precise) but comes at a premium.

As for blades, read this first: https://leisureguy.wordpress.com/2007/08/07/a-disquisition-on-blade-sampler-packs/

Balancing your logic with humility.

Logic and humility are both really important for a healthy existence. Too much of either and you end up in a state of chaos.

People who are overly logical might seem like psychopaths in certain instances. A person who only uses logic and doesn't address the human element is as good as a flesh machine. You're simply making decisions based on logic and math rather than feeling and urges.

People who only make decisions on emotions are basically animals. Logic is necessary for planning, for weighing the consequences of choices, for looking at both the big picture and whether decisions can be beneficial or harmful. A person who makes decisions based on their emotions and how something makes them feel is only existing in a primal state of being. Empathy and humility are primal, they are tied to animalistic social feelings and while they are necessary for a beneficial human experience, they can be destructive if not regulated by logic.

I bought a singing bowl off Amazon.

They're those Buddhist themed bowls that when you hit with a wooden peg will make a really delightful tone. I had been looking at them previously after watching a YouTube video on it. I must have ordered one after the fact because it showed up at my house and the order was placed the evening after I had gone drinking with some friends.

No regrets. It wasn't super expensive.
