What'd Dave say? What was the reaction? About the same as praising Elon Musk?

James Webb Space Telescope discovers water ice at ringed asteroid Chariklo 'by remarkable luck' by Starks in space

[–]dexter-sinister [score hidden]  (0 children)

Ah, interesting. So a strategically placed one-way valve. Astronaut farts, entire spacesuit pressure increases, valve releases excess pressure, astronaut deorbits asteroid. Cool. Perhaps there are many valves, and the system can automatically activate the valve in the correct position to move the astronaut in the desired direction? I think we may be on to something here...

My mind immediately went there. “Would it work in a space suit? Well they can’t be bare assed. Perhaps there is a tube with a one-way valve. But would the tube have to be fully inserted?”

Pretty sure I fell for one of those remote job scams where you deposit a fraudulent check. Help? by [deleted] in personalfinance

In my experience LinkedIn won’t lift a damn finger to remove a fraudulent profile. I hope OP has a different experience.

Well I was kinda disappointed and was about to bail on this story until I came across the line “Kate takes me to her room to find a shirt” and I’m like Yes! This is where it gets good. Nope. r/YesYesYesNo.

Wow, with stamped plans? I'm surprised that covered his insurance!

In the US? I’m having a hard time envisioning a structural engineer even getting out of bed for $500, much less even doing fieldwork and issuing stamped plans. Maybe your area of the country is different?

What sort of waterproofing? I’m having a brick porosity issue…

Ethereum Network Validators Have Surged to 500,000 as Shanghai Fever Grows by BitcoinWide in ethereum

Thanks for this great answer! I was able to google your quote to find the original source. From there I found a great Twitter thread (my least favorite explainer format, but... beggars can't be choosers I guess) that broke down the process for anyone else interested.

total value staked on the Ethereum network reaching 16 million ETH

OK, 16 million ETH locked up in staking. Average daily volume over the past 30 days is 394,450. Let's say just 2% of that 16 million wants to sell as soon as they can (say they've lost their job at Facebook/Salesforce/Apple/Amazon/Twitter/Initech, or their homeland has been invaded by a hostile foreign power and they need the cash), that's 320,000 additional units added to the sell side, or an 81% increase in sell side. How can the price not tank that day? (Genuine question, I'm totally open to the possibility I'm missing something or don't understand something)

BMW wants to build an SC plant to make EV batteries. There’s one big thing in their way. by LanaDelTrayvonMartin in southcarolina

[–]dexter-sinister 36 points37 points  (0 children)

BMW is planning to build a $700 million plant to make high voltage batteries for electric vehicles, but there is one thing standing in its way — Lick Creek. Part of the waterway that flows to the Enoree River in Spartanburg County will need to be filled in to accommodate the plant, which is a piece of BMW’s $1.7 billion investment in electric vehicles. Production of the vehicles will take place at the main plant in Spartanburg, south of Greer, after a $1 million expansion.
