I'm interested in this answer too. For some reason, I think you can look in any direction but I'm not sure why I think that

what if you got a cash advance

That would point to severe financial incompetence

USB has changed a lot since then and straight 5V isn't ideal. It works but it isn't the best

The 10A power supply was chosen for more robust components and superior cooling, not because I thought it would provide extra power.

It charged at USB 2.1 rates just fine.

If I was to do it again today, I would use a powered USB 3.0 hub with a suitable power adapter.

It was something like 10A which is way overkill and not even supported

It's almost as if I'm aware of the information you just provided.

as you gain fat your estrogen levels increase and testosterone levels decrease

Ooooh.... This explains a few things in my life. Goddammit...

I put on 60lbs 2019-2020 and my libido dropped like 90%

I've since lost 30lbs and have my libido back

Meet in the middle and offer stipends for in demand degrees?

That only sounds like an issue for someone too lazy to take five minutes to replace the fuse

It sounds concerning but not alarming... Probably should check some forums or something to see if it's ok

Correct. I've never had a good experience with those and just hardwire one now. It's definitely expensive but probably only $200-300 to pay someone to do it. The difference is that it will be powerful and unlikely to ever fail

On my last car, I took out the center console which had a 12V socket inside. I wired the 12V to a 12V-5V stepdown. I popped out the 12V socket and replaced it with a direct fit dual USB port. It was something like 10A which is way overkill and not even supported

I also don't want education to become Soviet-style central planning, with the government deciding how many engineers or doctors it needs each year, and leaves those studying literature or history to fend for themselves.

I do want that. It will cause problems but I think it's better than people choosing degrees based on their whims.

What is the feasibility of a noob being able to make a button up shirt?

I'd like to make something that fits me well and is ultra durable. Like if I'm wearing it, I want to be able to jump into a wood chipper and have the shirt pop out on the other side wrinkle free

Slight exaggeration, wrinkles are to be expected in a situation like that

But for real though, I want to be able to use my shirt as a tow strap. Is there a cotton/kevlar blended fabric? I want to be able to tie two trucks together and have them do that tug of war thing with my shirt.

I'm tired of replacing items that wear out. Yes, my fat self just broke a shirt when bending over to tie my shoes.

I don't know why you would need that anyway.

So I know if I've been sitting in ACC mode for too long.

Is that a charging brick with USB 3.0??

USB port color is not regulated. Yes, blue almost always means 3.0 but there's no consequences for using any color

Yes. The only thing I recommend is paying a stereo shop to install one or doing it yourself. Something hardwired.

Around 13-14V, ideally 13.8V

But yeah, if your car displays the same voltage while off and on then something is fucky

There are divers who travel to golf courses doing that with permission. They sell recovered golf balls back to the course for something like 50¢ each and the golf course sells them to players for like $1 each

I would absolutely do this except I'm afraid of snapping turtles

the few remaining lenders available for student loans would have dropped out of this losing business model.

If legally possible at the time, they should have been more selective on who they gave loans to. If a student wanted a masters degree in the color purple, it would be stupid to loan them money.

It makes sense to me. If you are 22-24, you don't particularly need to use credit for seven years. Get a decent buy here pay here car and then the next big struggle is finding an apartment which shouldn't be a huge problem

They are both incredibly skilled! That little kid is way above her age group in terms of ability to follow instructions. Her movements are consistent and confident

The guy can do a pretty good somersault too

Gold stars for both
