Don't overcook your food then.

And like I was saying, at a certain point of cooking literally all of your food from scratch (no junk food even) you want something quick.

Don't overcook your food then.

The problem with microwaves is it overcooks the outside before it cooks the inside. I have to use a lower power level to prevent that from happening, which makes it slower than the stove.

Frozen food works great because it's generally designed to work well in a microwave, but cooking fresh meat or veggies doesn't come out that good.

Except studies show that smokers have larger lung capacities than non smokers so...

Is there more to it than that? I would think all the crap from smoking getting in the lungs reduces the efficiency needing new air with a higher percentage of oxygen than what is left in the lungs to work well.

The lung is like a muscle. The more you use it the stronger it gets. swimmers have great lung capacity for the same reason smokers do.

see more

I understand that capacity increases, but I was wondering about efficiency not just capacity.

Someon above said it but i’ll repeat it, clearance doesn’t mean sale. It means the store is no longer carrying the item so its your last chance to buy it. They didn’t mark it down two cents to be an asshole, regular items end with .99 and clearance items end with .97 (or .98) in order to help with register systems and inventory.

see more

Wow that makes so much sense when I think about it. I always associated the word "clearance" with "sale" until now.

Consider associating words with what they mean, or say, instead of what you assume they mean.

Clear-ance. They are clear-ing it out.

see more

Yeah that's what made it obvious when I thought about it. I don't do that with 99% of words though, because using context is way faster than analyzing the parts of a word, and works well most of the time.

He fell the first time and they had to get another stunt actor out to try again but they liked the way the first one bicycled better so they cut and pasted the two clips together.

It might also be that the battery is charged, but the laptop can't be turned on until it detects the charger. I've had a few devices like that which I'm assuming is to protect from accidentally turning on during shipping.

What are they even looking at? Wonka’s chocolate factory?

I'd tell you what they are looking at but I can't see it either.

192.168.0.X is a very standard internal IP address that isn't open to people outside the local network, which means you'd have to be on that person's wifi or ethernet to connect to it.

Not really. The minimum specs are pretty low (GTX 560/Intel i5-2300 -- 7 year old technology at this point). The recommended requirements are sort of absurd but the game will run just fine, just turn the graphics settings down a bit. Or if you have an Nvidia card, let GeForce Experience set them for you.

Minimum specs are useless and highly arbitrary. Minimum specs could mean minimum graphics setting, 20 fps at 1080p, or minimum graphics settings, 5 fps at 480p. Unless you know exactly what they are targeting with the minimum specs, you still know pretty much nothing about what the minimum specs actually are.

I can say from experience, the i5-2300 should make small parks playable. Single threaded performance is super important in planet coaster though so a newer dual core i3 would probably even be enough as long as you keep the background stuff running to a minimum.

Good idea. Pizza is just half a toasted sandwich anyway. Have some chocolate instead.

Order two Pizzas to get a full toasted sandwich and get chocolate chips as a topping. Now you get pizza, a sandwich, and chocolate all in one easy step.

Why not just increase exercise instead? Eat what youd like and gain skill and strength instead of being hungry?

I'd have to burn off 4000 calories a day from exercise, exercising that might might literally kill me.

Fun game to play:

See how long you can go without using your brakes on the highway. You'll need to keep a good following distance, do a bit of coasting, and accelerate more slowly. My record is about 3 1/2 hours.

TADA! You just saved a bunch of money, are driving safer, and preventing traffic jams!

see more

I am baffled at people who follow close enough to need to use their brakes more than once every 5-30 minutes on the highway. It's like they want to expend more effort driving for no reason. Plus those idiots are making driving unsafe because I can never tell if their brake lights mean slowing down by 2mph or slowing down to an emergency stop because everyone was tailgating at once and one person in front slowed down too much.

Yeah...AT THE BACK *HEADDESK

I've seen this a lot in cases that come with a rear fan.

This may not be it's intended purpose, but it illuminates space under the desk where it is normally dark and hard to see when plugging something in.

And why is it bad?

At worst it'll probably decrease how long the batteries last because one or two will drain first pulling the voltage and current too low in total even if the other batteries are still good enough.

That's just shitty game design. They don't want to fix this issue so why not just have that be the game. In reality it's just frustrating and unsatisfying

Maybe it's frustrating for you, but I'd get bored as hell if I was able to win every game of expert minesweeper. Those 50/50 chances are what give me reason to play because then it's more than three minutes between each victory when I lose.

I said one day, who knows what AI will bring us in the next few decades.. Good point though!

see more

Someday computers might even have dedicated chips for that kind of stuff with all the neural network and AI research that is going on, and is pretty inefficient to run on standard computer processors. Just imagine what they could do if a single 2 watt chip gave game devs as much AI power as an entire 20 watt cpu core, just like they are able to currently make complex 3D graphics with way less energy usage than a standard CPU would take to do the same thing.

It's way easier to buy a bunch of pairs of the same socks once every 2-3 years myself than it is to deal with pairing a random mish-mash of different socks that I'd get for christmas 54 times every year.

I don't even have to go to the store to do it either. I buy them on Amazon and get free shipping. It's not like you get to try on socks at the store anyway. The same goes for underwear. And t-shirts are generally hard to find ones I like in stores so I shop online. Pants are about the only thing that really needs going to the store for since they can vary by a few inches across brands even when they are given the same measurements.

Even then, I can just look at the brand and "model" of pants I currently like and buy the same ones online to be sure they fit, potentially in a different color. I've also done this with shoes.

At first I was thinking “You get socks for Christmas 54 times a year??”

lol yeah I worded that kinda weird but decided I was done figuring out the best way to write that.
