Stephan, unfortunately not. It was close to the wheel well and angled in a way that caused an irreparable buckle. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

I should put a magnet in front of my tires to avoid this. Bummer dude! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Sorry, Stephen, that's very unfortunate. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
That's the worst. Just happened to me recently on a month-old tire. (Guess who didn't get road hazard insurance? Yup.) - CAJ hates pants

If I end up with crappy wine, I figure I can always turn it into brandy. In fact part of me is hoping it fails, because I'd really like to build one of these :) http://homedistiller.org/forum... - Ken Morley
Some friends have said they're having an open house over Christmas this year but that everyone's got to bring something homemade. This is partly because they've bought a cider press and want to make some. We've just started some strawberry wine to take around. It's the first time we've done this in maybe five years and we've decided to play around with the sugars, mixing dark and light muscovado with some golden sugar. We think it should be approaching a sweet sherry by Christmas. - Mark H
I can see how a hobbyist can really get into wine making, as there seems to be an infinite number of parameters you can adjust to produce the perfect vintage. :) But the feedback loop can be a little on the long side. Most of my plum wine sources are recommending 6 months - 2 years before consuming! I may need to sample sooner. :) - Ken Morley
In the past we've always used the "can you see your hand through the other side of the demijohn?" method to tell when the wine was done. But because we're impatient it's not been unheard of for us to have a "glass of cloudy" every now and then too. - Mark H
That's a good method! I've put on enough for 50 bottles, so if I end up sampling frequently I should still have a few left to age for a year or two. :) - Ken Morley

Today I have officially stopped working with Windows NT 4 Server. I’m doing an imaginary happy dance around the server room.
I rebooted that server less than a dozen times over the past 15 years. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Wait, you had an NT 4.0 server still running? - Eric - Back to the Grill
NT == New Technology - Professor A.I.
at least it wasn't 3.51? - Big Joe Silence
I supported NT 4.0 on Alpha processors. ALPHA! - Eric - Back to the Grill
This was an old production server running NT 4 SP 6a, SQL 7, Siemens OPC Server, as well as a proprietary application, two Profibus interfaces. Typically, if automation works well, there's no reason to replace it. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Small SC town rallies for fired gay police chief
"LATTA, S.C. (AP) — When openly gay police chief Crystal Moore was fired by a mayor who condemned her lifestyle as "questionable," she expected her two decade career in law enforcement was over. Then, this conservative, small town rebelled. The people of Latta, who voted overwhelmingly for a state amendment banning gay marriage eight years ago, turned against the mayor, stripped him of his powers and rehired Moore. They said her dedication to the town mattered more than her sexual orientation." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Va. man plants flag, claims African country, calling it ‘Kingdom of North Sudan’ - The Washington Post
"Jeremiah Heaton was playing with his daughter in their Abingdon, Va., home last winter when she asked whether she could be a real princess. Heaton, a father of three who works in the mining industry, didn’t want to make any false promises to Emily, then 6, who was “big on being a princess.” But he still said yes. “As a parent you sometimes go down paths you never thought you would,” Heaton said. Within months, Heaton was journeying through the desolate southern stretches of Egypt and into an unclaimed 800-square-mile patch of arid desert. There, on June 16 — Emily’s seventh birthday — he planted a blue flag with four stars and a crown on a rocky hill. The area, a sandy expanse sitting along the Sudanese border, morphed from what locals call Bir Tawil into what Heaton and his family call the “Kingdom of North Sudan.” There, Heaton is the self-described king and Emily is his princess." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Faces of Vaccine Denialism
Faces of Vaccine Denialism.jpg
denialism ne demek - moreya
İnkarcılığa rahatsız gerçeği ile ilgili önlemek için bir yol olarak gerçeği inkar seçmektir. - Eivind
I'm not an anti-vaxer, but my moderate distrust of flu shots is influenced by the fact that of the couple of people I know who regularly get them, one developed Guillain-Barré syndrome within a week of receiving the shot. The CDC says the correlation is negligible, but my personal study indicates it's closer to 50%. :) - Ken Morley
I think you just highlighted an important problem. Lots of "personal studies," often based on news items and dodgy sites, end up with numbers like that, or worse :) - Eivind from Android
thanks :))) - moreya
Or maybe the CDC is lying to us. ;) - Ken Morley
Sure. More like Center for Mind Control, amirite? :) - Eivind from Android
You can definitely get Guillain-Barré from the flu shot, but it's like 1:1 million (EDIT: sorry, 1:100,000) , so I haven't seen any cases yet. - Victor Ganata
It took him about a year to mostly get back to normal. He never did regain his fine motor control completely. - Ken Morley
correlation does not imply causation. the flu shot isn't that likely to have caused it, no matter how awful his suffering. - Big Joe Silence
There was a statistically-significant increase in risk though, but that was the 1976 swine flu vaccine. http://www.cdc.gov/flu... We don't really know the mechanism. But, yeah, Guillain-Barré can certainly happen even if you aren't vaccinated. - Victor Ganata
I mean, you can get Guillain-Barré after getting the flu—it's probably the exact same mechanism—but who really knows? - Victor Ganata
It's possible my sample size was not large enough to be statistically significant (n=2). Your results may vary. :) - Ken Morley
I've gotten a flu shot twice, so I'm 100% sure it has no side effects. :) I also got the HPV vaccine with no side effects, so it's also 100% safe. - Heather
I'm pretty sure my n is somewhere between 1,000 to 10,000 by now, but it's definitely not powered enough to see Guillain-Barré. I'm just taking the CDC at its word. - Victor Ganata
at the risk of being classified as your friendly vaccine denialist... I suggest you read CDC http://www.cdc.gov/vaccine... and then search for official Finnish news on Pandemrix effect, ie. gooogle for _pandemrix finland site:yle.fi_ - непростые коротышки
first GSK simply denied effect goes above (their) statistic expectations, then they denied scale of effect, then they denied that most vulnerable between 4 and 19... then they denied those who "reported too late"... and then they used Finnish state as last-line "insurance" for damage over their 30 million EUR fund (in 2011 official number had been 92, but official confirmation of link had been in 2012 only). - непростые коротышки

Conspiracy 58 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
"Conspiracy 58 (Swedish: Konspiration 58 or KSP58) is a Swedish mockumentary from 2002, produced by Sveriges Television, the Swedish public broadcaster. The plot of the film is that the 1958 FIFA World Cup in Sweden didn't really take place, but was faked and exists only as forged television and radio coverage in a conspiracy between American and Swedish television, the CIA and FIFA as part of the Cold War. In the film it is said that Sweden did not have the economic or technical resources to actually host such a large event. In the plot, the American motive for doing this was to test the effectiveness of televised propaganda. When the film originally aired, the audience was not told in advance that it was a mockumentary, giving the impression that Conspiracy 58 was a regular documentary film." - Eivind from Bookmarklet
"A large amount of "evidence" is presented. For example, there is analysis of television recordings of the matches, where houses can be seen in the background that never actually stood there. The film also analyzes how the shadows of the players in the field were falling, and were angled in a way that is not possible in Sweden given the position of the sun at the time.

Study finds people would rather electrocute themselves than spend 15 minutes alone with their thoughts. - Seriously, Science? | DiscoverMagazine.com
"This study–published in the tip top journal Science, no less–found that when participants were asked to spend 6 to 15 minutes in a room by themselves with no distractions, most had a very difficult time doing it. In fact, the authors found that “simply being alone with their own thoughts for 15 min was apparently so aversive that it drove many participants to self-administer an electric shock that they had earlier said they would pay to avoid.” (Unsurprisingly, more men than women chose to shock themselves.)" - Eivind from Bookmarklet
Zap. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
weird sample group. i don't mind being alone with my thoughts, it's what we did before electronic toys were everywhere (and i'm including television and recorded music here). WTF is wrong with ppl who can't bear to examine the contents of their own minds? and i say this as someone with major depression and panic disorder. really, what's sitting in their heads that's this awful, or are they just THAT easily bored? - Big Joe Silence
I was wondering why this sounded familiar - is this a meta study? I don't find it particularly surprising - most people who aren't guests of the penal system are rarely without some sort of stimuli to occupy their minds. Something to look at, smell, touch, eat - a room full of colors, pictures, textures. Ambient noise from your home and environment. There's a reason why solitary confinement is so punishing. - Jennifer Dittrich
They also studied college students not people of various ages. It was 100 people and they excluded one guy who shocked himself a ridiculous amount of times because it was "weird." - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
so basically the study was a load of crap. - Big Joe Silence
"To see whether the difficulty with “just thinking” is distinctive to college students, in study 9 we recruited community participants at a farmer’s market and a local church. The participants ranged in age from 18 to 77 (median age=48.0 years)." And it's not necessarily "wrong" to remove outliers. - Eivind from Android
I've spent hours staring at the ceiling and just thinking. It's a nice break from doing stuff all the freaking time. No comment on study, just throwing that out here. :) - Jenny H. from Android
I can spend 15 minutes alone thinking about electrocution. - Mistaken Identity
