Are you not paying attention to who you are replying to?
Only in the frame. Most the body panels are in common.
If you're grossly overweight it's even worse! Only the most elite athletes can liberate and metabolize adipose tissue at 1/2 that rate, and so a morbidly obese individual losing weight at such rates is burning muscle.
Losing weight is far far easier than gaining strength. If the end goal is to be a fit individual and not just skinnyfat the easiest and fastest way is to lose weight more slowly and maintain the muscle.
80-bit floats are not available on any platform other than x86
The 80-bit long double is also available on the 68881, 68882 coprocessors and later 68K family members that incorporate the FPU. The Itanium also supports the 80-bit format.
But yeah... those aren't particularly common these days.

I said as much above.
In an AC system, that current is continuously changing, so those transmission lines are continuously radiating away some amount energy. But that's not all. If there are any conductors nearby, those E-M waves can induce a current in those conductors, and the resulting E-M waves from that induced current can drag on the AC line further. This mutual induction is how transformers work. But, along an AC transmission line, unwanted coupling results in transmission losses. So, an AC system has a built in, inherent source of losses in the alternating current itself.
In a DC system, with a fixed, perfectly resistive load, the current doesn't change, so there's no radiative losses. In the real world, though, the loading on the system is continually changing, so the actual current demand on the DC system will vary over time, and some energy will be radiated away. To some extent that can be filtered, but that's limited by the amount of storage you can put near the ends of the transmission.
The Greek mu was probably there when it was copy/pasted. Slashdot silently eats characters outside the English alphabet though.
