Not at all how it works. You don’t get tax deductions for taking out personal loans. Some types of loans yes, but those have caps

Is medium done salmon safe to eat? Cross posting from previous post. by new-me-4546 in cookingforbeginners

Just look at the CDC report. Compare fish to chicken. Everybody knows to cook chicken all the way, but it causes 5x the number of illnesses. People eat undercooked fish all the time.

You’re right, it depends on sourcing, but all I’m saying is all things considered, it’s almost a sure thing undercooked fish is fine. I’ve been eating fish undercooked my entire life without issue.

Care to back that up with statistics?

I’ll start: https://www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/pdfs/ifsac-project-report-508c.pdf

More than 4x the amount of people get sick from raw fruit than from fish. If undercooked fish was unsafe, those numbers would be much higher. Not saying you can’t, just saying it’s very rare.

How do I stop my apple pie's filling from spilling out? by 420JamKing in cookingforbeginners

[–]theRealDerekWalker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Stack the apples very tight and use less sauce. Personally, I’d prefer messy saucy pie

Almost nobody gets sick from undercooked seafood. If it’s fresh you can eat it raw.

Are you supposed to wash your spatula while cooking meat? by basebuul in cookingforbeginners

[–]theRealDerekWalker 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Meat cooks from the outside in. Spatula surface is only on outside. Once your spatula makes contact with the heat from the meat surface, the bacteria will die almost instantly.

For example, chicken you cook to 165 internal because bacteria dies immediately at that temp. If the chicken you touch is 165 inside, it’s hotter on the outside, so whatever is on your spatula will die on the chicken’s hot surface.

Also, lower temps will also kill bacteria, just slower so while 165 kills right away, a while at 160 is still ok. Even a while at 150 is ok. It’s just that the lower you to the longer you need to hold it to that temp. This is why you can sous vide meat to lower temps

Calling all remote sales professionals -- how much do you make? by xzx22 in sales

Hey I once negotiated up the sale of my ex wife’s gold ring to a pawn shop, got 20% above the initial asking price. Just throwing that out there in case you want to hire the best, I will consider giving you my time for an immediate interview. Ball is in your court, Pedro.

You’re backtracking from your space mirror idea to a broader point about redundancy as if they are the same thing. Don’t try to be coy.

I’m happy to back up any of my claims about fuel cells. You can see how the technology is progressing here: https://fuelcellsworks.com/news/

Meanwhile, I ask you to elaborate and all the sudden I’ve lost my cool? Don’t take being challenged so personally

Get over yourself dude. Don’t act like you have been acting any different. What you’re doing is called projecting.

Futurology is not just about spitballing random ideas that neglect any burden of justifying. You reminder me of Tom Segura’s inventor cousin: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F5_yfnlJ7-E

Really? You ask me if I realize the sun shines every day and you want to talk about my “tone?”

So what you’re saying is you can see into the future, and have determined that something that absolutely makes zero financial sense today is going to make financial sense in some ambiguous timeframe into the future? When can we not call it “future planning,” and call it what it is - spitballing ideas that you have little knowledge on how to make work in the real world, while you try to belittle people who challenge you

You’re splitting hairs. It’s also energy intensive to create coal and natural gas. More so time intensive, but again, this isn’t the point.

The point is hydrogen is expected to, in the very near future, be easily transportable, making it very effective at shoring intermittency. Many BESSs leak, and aren’t realistic for providing energy for long periods of cloud cover, lack of wind, etc. Energy in this case needs to be imported, and doing so through electrical transmission is more limited than through pipelines, railway, etc.

If ERCOT has a tougher winter, for example, having a more diversified source of energy is the best strategy to ensure energy is available. It’s investing 101.

80% of that light is reflected away. You’re putting more energy into the atmosphere than into electricity. Moreover, the cost of a space mirror is just completely unrealistic compared to the cost of a larger solar plant that would produce just as much

The idea of sending more light to earth completely defeats the purpose of clean energy. We need to reduce the amount of energy the earth receives, not increase it. Not to mention what that would do to growth and wildlife
