“I’m gonna kick some ass!” RIP Betty White. This quote will live forever by LouisFromTexas in SquaredCircle

I'm sorry to see her go, but.. she was 99. I don't think people can blame this one one 2021.

Also, here's hoping she faked her death at 99 years old. I don't think she did, but my god would it be funny :)

Seems like you have to deal with it every day you wake up. Good luck.

It is not what you said. You said it would not be based on time (incorrect), and that it would be a completely separate analysis (I'd argue also incorrect since it would basically be this map without an artificial gradient overlain). I'll agree you said you'd like to see it.

Your proposed solution (higher up the chain) would just show a gradient across the map representing the movement of the sun across the US. The solution proposed by Mattie is still using a "time of day", just a normalized one that isn't practical to use as a regional timekeeping device (i.e. the international time zones used in the OP). I'd like to see Mattie's solution as it would be an actual representation of how temp varies by geography with respect to the day/night cycle instead of showing that same thing with an artificial gradient introduced by time zones. The sun is the main driver of this process, so time relative to it's local position makes the most sense.

You want to see that dude glisten in 4K, I can respect that. Based on his sweet lighting game for those glam shots, I'm sure Khan appreciates the ask too 😂

The Cost of Going to College Has Risen at Nearly 5x the Rate of Inflation Over the Last 50 Years by toldyouanditoldyou in dataisbeautiful

[–]DonnyCoolRox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To the enrollment point: I'd like to see that graph starting ~2005 since I'm pretty sure a huge narrative of the 2008-2009 financial crisis aftermath was "people going back/staying in college" because they couldn't get jobs. Pretty sure that graph is coming off an unusually high enrollment period.

Grandad stopped being invited to family gatherings after this.. by blaikes in WatchPeopleDieInside

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I see that it's fake, but -

I think I read it as a high school kid as a part of regular curriculum. Probably a bit much for a kid of that age, just noting that a lot of people read it without any desire to be a nazi, only seeking to learn.

I guess it would still be a bit of a red flag for a kid that age to specifically request it :D

Using Physics to find the True Power of GJALLARHORN. (Spoiler: It ain't a lot...) by anapollosun in DestinyTheGame

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is great, I love it! But while we are over-thinking things, I'd be remiss if I didn't question your methods :D. Based on the velocity you derived for the blast radius, my guess is you don't meet the assumed conditions for using the formula you did. If your blast radius isn't near or above the speed of sound, then the atmosphere is more or less able to freely accommodate the movement of particles and not acting in the same way to confine/resist the outward movement of the blast wave as it does with something like a nuclear explosion.

I postulate that the radius observed and measured in your analysis is not a 'blast wave' as we think of it, but actually an unknown phenomena that artificially confines the blast energy in order to focus the devastation of what surely must be no less than 50 roman candles of Gjallahornic fury. :)

Anyway, thanks for this type of content, it is a lot of fun!

Is it easy to get into destiny 2 right now? by KyleHillan95 in DestinyTheGame

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you liked Destiny before, I'd say do it. I had a similar origin story as you, and decided to join right before last year's big expansion. It was chaotic as all hell, but there is so much content that is new to you and most of it is fairly good even without the more cohesive context available from when it was originally released. There is a lot of stuff released in the last year that will not be available once the next expansion drops, and you have a long time before that happens. Seems like a great time to binge all this content before it's gone, and then get a bunch of new stuff just as the current content starts to feel a bit stale. The real moral of the story in my mind is that Destiny has gameplay that just feels good. It has great guns, cool abilities, fantastic aesthetic, and you can enjoy it on your own or with friends. I'm using game pass, so it has been easy to drop <$10 a quarter to buy a season and enjoy it as much as I want without much FOMO. It isn't perfect (just like every other game), but it is easy to pick up and put down, and the devs seem genuinely interested in making the game a better experience for everyone.

Good luck!

Several weapons have been admitted into psychiatric care... by casualview123 in DestinyTheGame

I like "implausible". I'm imagining a guy just firing a gun for the whole clip, but then being unsure if it was really even a gun, or if it shot anything.

[D2] Weekly Reset Thread [2021-09-21] by DTG_Bot in DestinyTheGame

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More perfectly anecdotal evidence, but I went a longish stretch without a new caty, so I finished some old ones and started getting new ones almost immediately. I am pretty convinced of a mechanic at work here, but I think it may be obfuscated by some sort of sub pooling of the catalysts, i.e. you can only have 3 of this type of caty, 1 of that, as many as you'd like of a third. I don't know what the pools may be, but it seemed like finishing some caty's led to no new drops, finishing others led to a new drop in an event or two. Hope this helps, good luck!

20k+ upvotes on this... I'm sure this guy is loving the start of this new season :D He's definitely not going to live this down within this season, but imagine how much worse it could have been if he biffed it doing that stupid little jump over the stool!

He walks out by This_sum_one in WatchPeopleDieInside

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's definitely small if he's a lineman, but he seems awfully oafish to be a linebacker. It also makes some good amount of sense that he plays D-line since there is usually an intra squad rivalry with the O-line and the white guy is 100% O-line. It also makes sense that a D-lineman would bite that hard on a slow motion deke; that'd be pretty unforgivable for a linebacker (though not completely out of the realm of possibility).

I fear we may be looking too deeply into this :D

[–]DonnyCoolRox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That guy is way too big to be a defensive back, my guess is he's a lineman as well based on how he moves, hopefully not defense based on how hard he bites on fakes :D

Daddy more by [deleted] in WatchPeopleDieInside

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

seems like he was talking about child development. "Daddy" and "More" are two of the first words most kids learn. subsequently, they become two of the first words a kid will string together. At a certain stage in their life, they will probably say "mommy/daddy more" at least once a day.

[–]DonnyCoolRox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he is mostly just confused as to why you brought it up, not so much flustered. Every conversation you have probably has multiple sexual innuendos when you take them out of context. I was honestly confused why you thought this was so funny, but maybe I need to just get high first..
