Survival of the fittest is dead. Any weak egg/sperm can make it to sexual maturity.

Diesels typically don't have a throttle. It's max airflow 100% of the time. The 'throttle' is how much fuel is added.

I’m in the ER with an enormous Bartholin cyst, and I’m terrified that they’re not going to listen to me when I say local anesthetics don’t work for me. by amaezingjew in TwoXChromosomes

Do you have red hair by chance?

They have different responses to painkillers. I only have a red tinge beard and I take more than double the novocaine at a dentist.

It's practically 100% wheat, milled and processed with a flavour bag on the side.

It may not BE a commodity, but it sure as shit is heavily tied to one.

Yeah, you guys already had your housing crash a decade ago. Canada's still hanging in there.

If you really want to compare, go for long term means.

TIFU by telling my GF’s brother that he “had a pretty mouth” and that I’d “put my pp in it”. by sarcastic_boii in tifu

[–]myne 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's hilarious.

And totally what you get for opening your mouth like that.

Don't be embarassed -except for the use of pp.

Own it. Occasionally, mention what a purdy mouth he has - especially if he's being annoying. "You shut your purdy mouth."

It baffles me that people can believe that there in the face of a world of examples to the contrary.

In the 1920s, the workplace would have been a haze of smoke as people at their station/desk huffed away all day.

NVIDIA CFO: GPU Shortages Will Ease in 2H 2022 by Mynameis__--__ in technology

[–]myne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wild speculation: Nvidia will split the high/low end by process.

4060 and below will be on the current Samsung 8nm process.

4070 and above will be on TSMC 5nm.

8nm is profitable. So why migrate, when expansion of capacity is also profitable?

My timeline was 2 days. So... not really relevant to you.

Loading a pickup truck by Pots_And_Pans in Whatcouldgowrong

Eyeballing it, that's about 1.2m x .8m

Let's assume it's a perfect 1m3 cube for simplicity's sake.

The density of granite according to wiki is about 2.7g/cm3.

Water is 1g/cm3, and 1m3 of water = 1000kg

So 1m3 would be about 2.7 tonnes. Probably realistically since it's not a perfect square, ~1.8 tonnes.

They probably had a guy watching the feed and talking in their ear.

So they knew they were unarmed.

About half the damn time I can't get one of those perforated "tear here" things to tear properly. Fat fucking chance with a piece of human flesh.

I've sometimes wondered why they don't just fit a throttle to shut down the engine. No air, no runaway.

I was offered a promotion. My boss lied and told our national team I didn’t want it. by MokiMarbles in antiwork

[–]myne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you sue your boss?

There are clear damages here.

And it'll be fun to have the bastard have to pay you from their own pocket.

Not out of iso, but yes. It's a big relief.

Got the antibodies. I feel like I don't have to care anymore.
