  1. https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2020/12/23-1/quiz-which-demon-slayer-character-are-you
    So I took this “What character from Demon Slayer?” quiz & came up with Zenitsu ... as if my self esteem hasn’t been low enough lately 😥

      I took it and was given Giyu. I think the quiz is flawed.

  2. Cleaning up some of the leftover debris from last week's plumbing repairs and chopped out a ~3 foot section of pipe around the leaking section just to see how bad looked.  I could barely see down the length of the pipe due to all the mineral/rust build up!  Surprised that a) there was any flow at all through the ~25 foot stretch that I wound up replacing and b) it hadn't started leaking before this.  Well, at least I shouldn't have to worry about this particular stretch for another couple decades.

      That's a long time. Now you've got it on my mind to check my own plumbing before we sell the house.

  5. I dooded the deed.  Kind of pointless since I know either Biden or Trump will win but if I don't vote then I can't complain, right?  Pitiful selection this time, as usual.  I almost wrote-in the name of the guy with a boot on his head but since he didn't get the nomination I instead went for the guy whose running mate was initially the running mate of the guy with the boot on his head.  I'd have voted Green again but I wrote to them last time about their stupid anti-nuclear stance and got back a nonsense reply so I went back to the other guys for this cycle. 

    All I can say is I hope SpaceX's Starship testing goes well.  I need a few AU of hard vacuum and lethal radiation between me and D.C. ASAP.

  7. Dont mean to rant, but like if you can't be genuine with someone then why the fuck are lying acting like you're this perfect fucking saint that loves to make friends? 

    Like wtf.

    1. Wedgy

      Hmm. I find people who like to surround themselves with as big a circle as they possibly can are uncomfortable with the idea of any one person disliking them. Spreading yourself so thin almost forms this persona you can hide behind and pretend to be exactly the type of person whoever you're trying to draw in can connect with. The fault comes when even that persona crumbles and you can begin to see the fragile human behind it. I personally find it to be much healthier to simply surround yourself with people you are comfortable being yourself around. Let friendships happen naturally and let go of the ones that don't work out or are harmful to you. If you meet someone who boasts a 'love making new friends' sort of vibe, it may be better to just keep your distance if possible and observe.

      I hope you're doing well otherwise. Take care!

  8. And now I’m 56.

    I’ve actually had this affliction since the 10th but I didn’t realize it until my phone reminded me about my brother’s birthday yesterday.  (Then there’s my mom’s on the 23.  Yes, somehow my family wound up with 3 of us in one month.)

      I also forgot my birthday this year. 😪 Never too late to celebrate, though, right? With how busy you've been I understand how it's easy to let it slip by unnoticed.

  11. I will never understand how some gamers can rage and literally scream at their other squad mates because things didn't go their "way". It's no wonder why I rarely game with others when it comes to Fortnite and COD. Just showing me that I have some toxic, child-like friends. 🙄

      Some people just have the emotional maturity of a sea cucumber. If online video games are their only outlet, then all their negativity gets dumped on to other players rather than on an NPC or something that won't be hurt by it. These are people who need to find an additional safe outlet to quell their frustrations.

  14. Alright, question for our resident spaceman. What is your opinion about Oumuamua? I know there's no scientific consensus on it yet, but do you have any gut feelings? Speculation? Is it just a rock, or an alien craft? Or maybe it's a sentient alien species of space rock?

      YES as a matter of fact I have and I'm subbed to them it seems lol! Nature is wild. I wouldn't dream of diving down there myself, but watching the footage is endlessly fascinating.

    Closest approach was 2,900km and we didn't even see it until 6 hours after it went by.  😮  Probably 3-6m in diameter (about 1/3rd the size of the Chelyabinsk meteor)  and travelling at 12.4km/second.  Definitely would have made some noise and got people's attention.

    1. Wedgy

      Wedgy

      😬 Very close indeed. Good thing it's small and would have been less likely to cause more damage, even though Chelyabinsk... well, exploded for lack of a better term. Is the size of it a factor in it going undetected?

      My idea was to do something similar online, but I just never had the time to do the research for something like that.  I'd have had to quit my day job and I could not figure out a way to make something like a blog bring in enough income to replace the paycheck.


      Retirement goals!!

      But seriously you're totally right; Occam's razor seems to apply here. I see a lot of it lately. Heavy-handed astro-science is, I'm guessing, a frequent victim of over-sensationalist just because the hype of aliens.

      Not enough cryptid focus on the oceans, by contrast. There was a statistic I came across claiming we've explored more of our solar system and beyond than we have of our own oceans. For all we know, Lovecraft was right, and another intelligent species might be existing down there without us even knowing.

      Honestly when I find something curious relating to space, I have recently been thinking "What does efaardvark think of this?" Blame it on not knowing anybody else with inclination on the subject. But anyway, I appreciate the comment on it. It actually gave me a lot to think about (the length did not intimidate me, was more than happy to read it!) 

      Quote

      getting back to that "non-gravitational accelleration"? Turns out that was just the media going nuts.There was some acceleration observed, but it was consistent with a push from solar radiation pressure.

      I suspected that was hyperbole, but this is the first time I've seen a counter-arguement that actually made any sense. Everyone seems to be out there trying to prove it's an alien ship. 🤡

      The idea it may possibly be a chunk of a planet is less exciting than aliens, of course, but it's also somewhat comforting? I also think if there were any evidence that it were intelligent in any way, it would probably be tightly under wraps and most of us wouldn't even have heard about it to begin with. 🤷‍♀️

      As always, thank you for humouring me! I hope my curiosity isn't too bothersome lol

      The girl seems to have a sway to the left a bit which would cause the skirt to catch some air on the opposite side. With the way it is now I can see that looks like what you were trying achieve, but the skirt doesn't flare out enough and there's a bit of a hang where you can almost imagine an invisible hook lifting at the skirt rather than inertia doing the job.

      I'll redline to show you what I mean;

  21. You know, it's a darn shame that I have to drive to an entirely different city just to find produce that doesn't look it fell out of a rubbish bin. On the bright side, I did find a wider variety of fruits for snacking this week: apples, pluots, red plums, pears, peaches, & nectarines.

    I also plan to get some grapefruit, lemons, apricots, & grapes but I'll have to drive even further away for those so I might just go in the morning. 

    The best part of this is that now that I eat fruit so often I've begun to crave it instead of things like potato chips, cookies, etc. & I'm not too far from reaching my next weight & fitness goals, so this is very encouraging.

      That is truly a shame. Everyone should have access to healthy food. :(

      Good on you for forming better habits, though! It's a great feeling breaking away from junk food. You begin to realise how nasty it actually is, how unkind it is to your body. I tried a Wendy's burger for the first time in years last week and it made me very ill. Tossed it out with no hesitation.
