Cameras which permit viewing the body without clothes naked (I want one of these! Is it a mode you switch on?)
Infrared light can see through certain clothing.
In the old analog days, Kodak's Ektachrome Infrared film was notorious for making IR visible, and IR film in general had plenty of urban legends behind the Iron Curtain.
In this digital age, camera manufacturers add special filters to block IR and prevent this. See Sony Nightshot. This site has some technical details and "hacks" for the curious.
Point of order: Visual Studio subbing spaces for tabs is the most annoying thing in the universe, and results in my hitting Ctrl-K-D every single file in a code review because some fuckwit clicked where he wanted his code to go and was off by a space, and never fixed it.
How is that VS fault and not the idiot who clicked in the wrong space? Further, how would this be different if tabs were used instead?
People who indent by physically pressing the spacebar n times need to be shot. Everyone uses the fucking tab key.
Why the fuck not let it emit the fucking tab character already?
What the say did you just say fuck me about, you bitching a little? I'll have you graduate I know top of my Seals in the Navy Classes, and I've been raided in numerou Al Quaeda secret involvements, and I have killed over 300 confirmations. I am a trained gorilla. In warfare, I'm the sniper arm in the entire US force tops. You are targeting me but I'm just another nothing. I will fuck you with precision the wipes which has never been liked before on this scene. Earth, fuck my marking words. You can get away with thinking that shit over me to the Internet? Fuck again, thinker. As we spy I am networking my secret speaking across the trace and your IP is being prepared right now so you better storm the maggots. The wipes that storms out of the little pathetic thing. Life you call yours? Your fucking dead kids. I can be any time. I can weigh you in over seven hundred kills, and that's my bear hands. Not only am I extensively accessed by trains, but I have no arms for combatting the entire arsenal United States, and I will use it to wipe your miserable ass. You shit the faceoff of the continent. If you only could have commented what unholy cleverness your little "retribution" was about. To bring down upon you, maybe you would have fucked your tongue. But you wouldn't, you shouldn't, and now you're holding the pay, you goddamn idiot. I will drown in shit fury. Sincerely, your dead fucking kiddo
Not to mention people who set up Google as start page in Chrome.
Isn’t that the default, though? (I’m not sure, and can’t be bothered to check.)
By default, you have a built-in start page that consists of Google search bar and 8 thumbnails (or whatever they're called now) of frequently visited pages. Some people insist on replacing it with www.google.com.
@boomzilla yeah, Slack is more attuned to the ephemeral although history is preserved so you can look things up if you need to. Confluence et al is more for the long term stuff but the reality is that the actual information never makes it to Confluence because it's in email chains - or Slack.
It seems that you've been living two lives. One life, you're Thomas A. Anderson, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a social security number, pay your taxes, and you... help your landlady carry out her garbage. The other life is lived in computers, where you go by the hacker alias "Neo@blubar" and are a customer of the slowest internet access on Earth. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not.
After I left Stack Overflow in 2012, people would sometimes ask me for advice. I must know what I'm doing, since I was successful, right? Well, I don't know about that… but I do know that the best way to succeed in what you're doing is not to ask some fancy "expert" like me, but to ask your customers, your fans, your users, your patrons, your .. own community!
Huh... Must have missed that one.
His intentions there kind of petered out when he figured out that the community didn't have money like "high-value businesses" do.
I don't know if that recent news piece about the natural maximum lifespan being 120 years contradicts his research. I suspect not as it's based on no major interventions, and De Grey's research is about incrementally improving the types on intervention we can achieve.
Exactly. The lifespan limitation idea is based on a certain barrier in cellular reproduction (telomeres,) and if we can "fix" that, that limitation is gone. (And then we move on to the next one.). But then we're not dealing with a natural lifespan anymore, by definition.
Perhaps, but groceries and especially produce are fairly low margin as it is.
If they can afford to have sales having 50% off, I'm sure they've got pretty healthy margins.
The more perishable food is, the higher the markup typically is. Produce is typically priced with a 2-4x markup, but that doesn't take spoilage into account. Their actual profit margin won't be as high, because for highly perishable goods they'll almost inevitably end up with some product that is unsellable.
If they have a 50% off sale on produce, they're probably selling it for very close to their cost. It's an easy way for them to offload whatever's still sellable from a bunch of product that wouldn't be sellable for much longer. And, in some cases, they'll sell product below cost, just to try to get something in return for it before it spoils, so they end up with less that they have to throw away.
Two investors in Juicero were surprised to learn the startup’s juice packs could be squeezed by hand without using its high-tech machine.
A person close to the company said Juicero is aware the packs can be squeezed by hand but that most people would prefer to use the machine because the process is more consistent and less messy. The device also reads a QR code printed on the back of each produce pack and checks the source against an online database to ensure the contents haven’t expired or been recalled, the person said. The expiration date is also printed on the pack.
