Air _is_ an insulator. Its the same idea as double pane windows.
Double glazed windows have a vacuum (or sometimes a noble gas) between the panes. If air gets in between the panes condensation starts to appear in cold weather. If that happens the window has to be replaced; they can't be repaired economically.
Why is underage sexting a problem worth addressing, but adult sexting is not?
Disclaimer: I make no comment on the morality of sexting generally.
To answer your question, it's the same reason we make the distinction between consensual and underage sex: the line between parental and self-responsibility has to be drawn somewhere.
The strange thing is, we usually don't blame the child for wearing the stupid hat. Instead, we blame the peer for mockingly posting the hat photo on facebook.
Either you've never been in a school playground or that's a bald-faced lie. That's to say nothing of what happens when an adolescent gets access to social media. If you think adults are any better then I'm amazed you've managed to last as long as you have.
Posting anonymously for obvious reasons.
Because you lack the courage of your convictions?
...many 3d scanners don't like transparent objects.
Did you try painting it, or colouring it with a sharpie?
It's similar to the Electoral College, except the MPs do the voting.
Not quite. The MPs do not elect the prime minister; political parties elect their own leaders and these are "invited" by the Crown to form a government, usually after a general election.
As I understand it this is closer to the US primary system where the general populace vote on who will be the presidential candidate in the main election.
...detected the thump of the parachute strings going-taught, determined that meant it was on the ground, and cut the parachute...
Just think about that again for a moment.
It's "taut" by the way, but apart from that I see a bright new career in space exploration in your future.
My prediction is that this is a fluff piece and the "breakthrough" is complete bullshit.
Of course, it's being reported in the Telegraph.
then why does it work for pets?
It works the same way my magic rock cures a cold within a week or two.
Ever heard the adage 'people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'?
Yes, but it has nothing to do with actual glass houses.
Interesting use of the word "indiscreet"
He used "indiscrete", not "indiscreet". That's what it says in the summary anyway, but having read through that round of buzzword bingo I don't think I'll waste my time checking TFA to see what he used there.
As to the idea of silly game elements bleeding into my everyday life... No thanks. You can keep it. They've been trying this on and off for years and it's still a nuisance at best.
I have to download your app on my phone and check it every day to fully enjoy your game? I'm looking at you, Rockstar, and your little dog too. Learn Sega's lesson from the Dreamcast and GTFO. What this guy is describing sounds very much like making casual games non-casual in the worst possible way.
I think they should call it "OttoPilot" in Germany.
By your command.
The margins are gonna be a lot narrower,...
Last time I checked the popular vote showed Trump having a majority of 200,000. That's two hundred thousand in a country of over three hundred million people. There is no margin. There is no "true wish of the electorate", nor can there ever be one in a FPTP voting system.
As a business owner I haven't paid myself a salary in years, I put everything back into business.
What do you use to pay for food and shelter then?
