    Nojay @ 437: We had a power outage last night. Someone plowed through a mini-park and decapitated a power pole. I have everything on UPS batteries, so I had time to shut down, but it's not readily apparent how you...

    Poul-Henning Kamp @ 435: This is the kind of shit you have to nail down in your countrys constitution, so that no politicians can ever fuck with it again, without asking the voters directly. That won't help because the bigots...

    Moz @ 406: Windoze11 ... THEY keep trying, but I ain't buying. The only reason I have Windoze10 on this computer is that's what it came preinstalled. This is only the third computer - other than laptops - I've bought...

  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Heteromeles @ 886: I hope someone is still chatting with it just in case it IS sentient. Wouldn't want it to die of loneliness or worse ... all beings need to be properly socialized so they don't go crazy....

    Heteromeles @ 885: However, it's worth considering the possibility that China may one day announce that it's found ETs. Our reaction will be...? ... "Pics or it didn't happen!"...

    P-38 ... the second hit in Google. And a photo of a C-ration with some explanatory notes Beans with frankfurter chunks in tomato sauce. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-ration Consider that the MRE as bad as some of them were, was considered a substantial...
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    kiloseven @ 742: I joined up before MREs. My first military culinary experience was C-rations ... when they still included a 4-pack of cigarettes. I don't really remember anything being especially odious from that era. I still have & occasionally...

    timrowledge @ 539: If I were going to do transmutation for financial gain, I think I'd concentrate on metals that are worth more than their weight in gold ... titanium perhaps? https://theaviationgeekclub.com/did-you-know-that-titanium-used-to-build-the-iconic-sr-71-blackbird-mach-3-spy-plane-came-from-soviet-union/...
