Im curious as I usually use the site very occasionally to get certain electronic parts or order from PCBway like I just picked up some cheap but infinitely better than stock gps antennas for my LoRa T beams and im about to get a set of also still cheap but much better than stock 915mhz antennas but i kinda wanna throw some other projects or weird thing in the cart with it. It doesent have to be hobby electronics with soldering and all that but bonus points if it is.

It stands to reason he must have been doing something right to have stayed so close to the halls of power.

I was a toddler when he was carpet bombing Cambodia, never knew him as anything but "an important person" that was sometimes on the TV. Only learned of his crimes in the past decade.

How did an in-your-face war criminal retain such influence for so long?

Pretty much the title. I've been watching more realistic super hero shows like The Boys and Invincible. The reoccurring themes is that with great power comes great immorality.

I think it's easy for us normies to respect other people and their property because there are clear consequences for violating social norms. But what would the average person do if they had super powers?

You ever see a dog that's got its leash tangled the long way round a table leg, and it just cannot grasp what the problem is or how to fix it? It can see all the components laid out in front of it, but it's never going to make the connection.

Obviously some dog breeds are smarter than others, ditto individual dogs - but you get the concept.

Is there an equivalent for humans? What ridiculously simple concept would have aliens facetentacling as they see us stumble around and utterly fail to reason about it?

Is there a Spotify alternative that has no ads?

I pay for Spotify for 7 years or so now and i'm so sick of all the ads. After every update there seems to be an: oops, sorry, you have ads now. Podcasts are filled with ads. I was just listening to a podcast where they shoved in 3 ads mid-sentence. How long until musicians put ads in their songs. I'm just so sick of it.

Around 30% of all internet traffic is pornography. And you all know its no-nut november.
Considering these what's your internet data usage this month? And how's this related to the previous month?

The Infinity Blade or Minigore series, for example, or anything made by Illusion Labs. These games are genius and most consoles don't even have a touch screen or utilise it well like some smartphone games do.

Also why do people look at me weirdly 👀 when I play games on my phone in public while waiting for something?

If you don't use Spotify, what's your favorite artist and song right now?

I found someone in our user database with the name “Deekshita Anusri”. I then imagined the poor soul at the border who had to read that name in front of the person named so.

I’d love to hear some stories about times something like this actually happened.

I found such a photo on the Internet and became interested in what function such a structure could perform.

I've been having this debate with someone who is a bit of a germaphobe in my view.

Say I have a paper cut on my finger. It's deep enough to bleed initially, but it stops within a couple minutes. Maybe I need a bandaid at first, but after a day or 2, it is past the point where it starts bleeding again if I accidentally hit it or rub it on something. A couple days on, it still has the little flap of skin on it. Later, that goes away, but you can still see where it was. Finally, there is no trace. At what point in this process is the wound effectively closed?

When can you resume normal activities (dish washing, food prep, go in a pool/hot tub, have a dog lick your hand) and not worry about infection?

By commercialism, I'm aiming at a mix of spending a lot and sifting through bloated business models (e.g. this or that accessory/equipment, microtransactions, etc.). Feel like many can relate to this sort of commercial fatigue, and yet it creeps even into hobbies where one tries to unwind.

Lately I've picked up reading more again, as thanks to libraries I'm able to do just that, but I'm wondering what some other, less obvious options* might be.

*This is mainly for the going outside, walking folks. I enjoy a good walk from time to time, but I'm interested in activities that are a little less obvious.

There's an emergency at the Facility down the road, and everyone in a six-mile radius is very likely fucked.

What is the sound that announces your fate?

I'm looking to get the A+ and Networking certs only because I'll probably be laid off soon and I want to make myself even more marketable. Right now I'm a software developer with 8 years of Java experience, and from my initial studying I think the certifications shouldn't be too hard.

However, I may not have the time (or money) to make multiple attempts, so I was wondering if anyone had any good resources tailored to folks who are already technical to help me study.

I know some folks might say I don't need them, but my resume needs more buzzwords to get picked up by recruiters and hiring managers, and I'm open to all kinds of work as long as it keeps a roof over my family's head.
