It only asks for administrator passwords when doing administrative things like installing programs and changing global settings.
Yep, that's exactly what Windows does. They really have done work on Windows in the last 17 years!
Well, they've certainly slapped on a series of bandaids that make you think that's what Windows does. It doesn't really work that way - on UNIX you can elevate a security token with new privs via authentication and authorization, in windows, you have to start with the max permissions and then mask it to reduce permissions and only then can you unmask *existing* permissions within a process. Hint for the slow, that means essentially you effectively have all permissions of the process available at all times. That's entirely unlike unix. So no, that's not what windows does.
It doesn't work like that. Radiative heating/cooling works via exchange of IR. You're not just giving it up; everything you're radiating at is proportionally radiating back at you. So you cool the most when you're radiatively exchanging with something that's very cold. Aka, you want to be radiatively exchanging with the cosmic microwave background, not with low-altitude clouds. That's the whole point of radiating at low absorption frequencies in the atmosphere: so that you're exchanging with space, not with atmospheric air.
I can't even recognize snark anymore.
Mine had crosshairs on the tube as well!
Odd, my tube has curly hairs.
The suburbs I grew up in didn't have Netflix...but then I grew up before the internet. Our nearest fast food place was a couple miles away, and we had a baseball field at the end of our street where my friends and I used to play ball. We spent more of our waking hours outside than in. I'd typically put 1000 miles on my bicycle during the summer.
So, while you may blame the 'burbs, I'd argue that it's a generational issue.
While dog (Kaygogi) is eaten, it's rather uncommon. I lived there for six years, and only came across it once when my landlord invited me to their elderly grandmother's birthday.
I haven't read the article, but my knee-jerk reaction to the headline is disbelief. Korea is highly polluted, with a very large smoking population, and tuberculosis was much more common there than in the US. Many homes are heated using "Ondal", a form of charcoal, smoking out into the open air. Of the roughly 50 countries I've been to, Korea had the worst drivers...Wikipedia shows 18.2 fatalities/billion km...the U.S. has 7.3 in comparison. The country also has a habit of hiding issues...they refused to admit there were any cases of AIDS for quite a while.
So, is the bark worse than the bite?
1. That was just an old theory, and not a widely accepted one.
2. Given what we've just seen, it demonstrably isn't.
That doesn't mean that there aren't compounds formed at great pressure that can remain stable at moderate pressures and represent very dense energy sources - there surely are. Metastability is a very real thing. But apparently not in the case of metallic hydrogen at ~STP.
Assuming that this actually even was metallic hydrogen; even that is somewhat in dispute.
Indeed, on both counts. And in particular I like the word "rogue planet". Again you have an adjective imparting additional information about another object ("Rogue X"), "rogue" can be readily quantified ("Not in a stable orbit around any particular star or cluster of stars"), and it's a very evocative term. And rogue planets are absolutely expected according to our current models. They'll be incredibly difficult to find, but they're out there.
We're also coming to the realization that there's a lot of objects, potentially including large ones, that are only tenuously bound to our solar system. And it's likely that we readily exchange this mass with other nearby stars over cosmologic timescales; parts of our solar system (primarily distant ones) likely formed by other stars, and things that condensed during the formation of our star system are likely now orbiting other stars.
