Oh come on, man! Did you even read that article? The person questioning him is Prof. Moriarity! Once an evil villain, always an evil villain!
... given that everyone seems to agree that the fighters are actually eastern Ukrainians and at most Russia is supplying weapons to them.
No, not even that is agreed upon. That are many claims that the "commanders" of the fighters are Russian, not Ukrainian.
...a much smaller ISP like Level3...
You're fucking idiot. Shut up and get back under your rock.
Apple failed to mention the bit about, if a US government agency had contacted them and requested information or for a backdoor to be put into their device, they'd be required by federal law to lie about it or face charges of treason.
That's not true. They could keep quiet; there is nothing in the current (unconstitutional) laws by which they can be required to make any statement at all.
Wouldn't a standard pressure cooker set to sea level pressure solve this problem?
Pressure cookers help, a lot. But they're not "set to sea level pressure", they are set to a differential pressure of whatever the current pressure is + some fixed PSI. (Or, in the case of the one I use at home, your choice of 2 pressure offsets.) So you need either experience or some mental juggling to estimate cooking times with one.
So, yes, depending on your altitude, they can help a lot, or make it just like cooking at sea level, or make it faster. And they do make lightweight portable ones for camping. But "lightweight" and "portable" are relative. You would NOT schlep one of these along for a solo backpack trip. But if you have any kind of vehicle, or porters, supporting a more heavily-equipped trip, then it's certainly an option.
Ok, how about: "it boils colder, making cooking slower"? Because that's what mountaineers and other people at high altitude complain; e.g., pasta takes forever to cook properly (whatever they mean by it), resulting in a goopy consistency.
That part is completely true, and not what I was disagreeing with. At 10,000' cooking dried pasta is tricky. But at some altitude, it actually becomes impossible, because it takes 186F to even cook at all... Same with many other foods, cooking by boiling gets slower & slower, and eventually altogether impossible.
A liquid boils when it reaches the temperature at which the partial pressure of its vapor equals the external pressure. Higher altitude means lower external pressure which means water boils at a lower temperature at high altitude which means a pot of water boils faster, but food cooks more slowly.
No, I don't believe it boils faster. Granted, as you correctly explain, it takes less energy to boil water at high altitude, but there's other factors you're leaving out, for instance, the big one I know about: efficiency of combustion. So while it takes less energy to boil that water, guess what you're getting from your stove? A lot less energy...
Not to me it doesn't. The point that I was making is that it is useless going after false DMCA claims for perjury because the only tiny bit of the notice that is under penalty of perjury is not the bit that is wrong in false claims.
Ah, now I see where the confusion is. The thing is that you're wrong, because *MANY* of the stories about false claims on
I have read it again and I can swear that it still makes perfect sense to me.
Yes, it makes perfect sense. But it contradicts the point you were making.
What is sworn under penalty of perjury is that you are, or are authorised to act for, the copyright owner of the allegedly infringed work...
Yes. Maybe you should read your own post again
Switching power supplies actually provide decent protection against moderate surges. You want to find things damaged by this kind of incident? You'd want to check claims for all the things in your house that contain *motors* which run on line voltage: washer, dryer, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, etc. Your computer etc can take an extra 50 volts basically forever, but motors cannot. (Also, heating elements will tend to burn out. An extra 20 volts will make your wife go through blow dryers at a prodigious rate--it's true, you can take my personal word for that!)
Memorizing and reproducing algorithms in a school exam doesn't mean u can create new algorithms not created by others on u'r own.
You're making a pretty big assumption there about schools. Did it ever occur to you that maybe that assumption does not apply to the world's top schools?
Watches represent the time of segregation and white power for most...
No. Just no. My god what a silly-ass comment. Most people wore watches well past 2000. The thing of ditching your watch and using your cell phone instead really only took off with the era of smart phones. So unless you're claiming that the time of segregation ended in the 21st century, instead of the 1960s & 1970s...
Go to bingo-night, see the ones running 10+ bingo cards, and still manages to tick off all the numbers being called
Yes, but they don't tick them off before calling bingo, because if they did, they wouldn't win
If figure skating isn't a sport solely because it's not objective, then there are a lot of Olympic sports that aren't actually sports either (high-dive, gymnastics,etc) as well as most of the X-games (freestyle BMX, half-pipe, etc)
I was being simplistic in that sarcastic comment. The thing is, that figure skating (along with all the other sports you mention) does absolutely have objective criteria for much of the scoring. But in figure skating, far, far, more than any other sport, the judges have a long history of simply ignoring the objective criteria when they so desire.
