Destin from SmarterEveryDay made a very good video on the James Webb Space telescopehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P8fKd0IVOs
Btw that article is 6 years old at this point, but not much changed.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Ultraviolet_Optical_Infrared_Surveyor
Also that thing is not gonna launch until 2039 assuming no delays… holy crap I'll be 50 years old when that thing's up and my dad will be like 80 :(
should have left the renter's market and got a house dog. We told you to buy a house dog.
More people working from home.
I got one for free about a year ago, found it setting out next to a trash can along the curb. It just had a power supply problem that I easily fixed (replaced a bad capacitor). Now you may ask why would anyone throw it away? Well I'm pretty sure that certain types of disabled people gets the Government to pay for these things for FREE so it's nothing to them. I've also found things like those motorized wheelchairs sitting out for the trash man with apparently nothing wrong with them except a bad or weak battery which I replaced myself.
people throw out perfectly good expensive stuff all the time. I'm not really into salvaging anymore, but stupid simple fixes like replacing batteries, power cords, or clogged carburetors are pretty common.
Im still running a few UPS' that the local hospital were tossing because the batteries died in them. Really expensive models at that, and all it took was some ebay generic batteries and they were good as new. They've been running for a solid 3 or 4 years now, so ill probably need to replace the batteries again soon.
I guess hospitals can afford to just trash stuff like that when they can charge you 9 grand just to look at you and be like "meh no idea, go home and sleep it off"
I've been considering getting back into the scav business, I don't need the money, or the stuff, but it was fun just trying to figure out what was wrong with everything.
I've mainly stayed away cause there are a few guys around here who are like aggressively into it, and all their houses just turn into hoarder nightmares. I'm seriously considering just starting up a little tinker business and just fixing stuff to pass the time.
Nobrainer business idea : Start clearing hoarderhouses. You know the clientele and the people in the know
hoarder houses almost never have anything, when you're a hoarder you have everything and nothing at the same time
I remember reading a while back about this hoarder woman who's son went missing for years.
Turns out his mummified corpse was still in his bedroom, but burried behind just a shit ton of rotting cardboard boxes full of trash.
The only thing I ever got that was interesting from a hoarder house was from my neighbors in this apartment complex i lived in, they had one of those greenish lamps from the WWII era that had uranium in the glass. I ended up just tossing it, as cool as having a radioactive lamp was, i felt like if i was in the same room as it, it was actively attacking my testicles.
Let me elaborate : You can actually get PAID for emptying a messy of Hoarder house.
Yes, most if not all of it will have to be driven to the dump or burned on the spot if legal.
If you can scav , can stand the smell, then you have what it takes to make a living.

The replacement batteries cost more than the entire replacement device when you count in the labor to install them by qualified personnel who can legally sign off the work.
That, plus they can't just use cheap generic eBay batteries for the lawsuits that would follow should those batteries fail.
>>The replacement batteries cost more than the entire replacement device when you count in the labor to install them by qualified personnel who can legally sign off the work.
That has to be by deliberate design for profits then, there is no other reason for it to be that way. Hell, when I replaced the batteries in ones I found, I just got the proper connectors and bound the whole thing together into a module pack that I can snap in or out in about 2 seconds.
It's all about passing blame.
If you buy random batteries off of eBay and install them yourself, then you're responsible for the patient that dies when the UPS fails. If you hire a company to service the UPS, they are responsible. The high price comes from A) insurance premiums and the army of lawyers the company pays to deal with the liability, B) upmarket parts which are guaranteed to work, as opposed to eBay specials which may or may not.
Looked into the tinkering business idea for burning time, turns out its neither profitable or a good idea in general. Contacted the local "Habitat for Humanity" shop and they were interested in me showing up once a week to inspect used appliances and stuff, and maybe so some small repairs. Weirdly "Good Will" and "Salvation Army" was not interested in my volunteering at all.
I'm sure they'll rescind the invitation once they see your crazy ass in person.
The other two exist on a business model of having people do their court ordered "community service" hours there as free slave labor
Naw, I don't deny I'm pretty broken, physical brain damage does that. I even told them that, but I dress pretty high end, keep clean and slick, and I'm a pretty quiet "keep to myself" person irl, so its not like im disruptively crazy. Its more like my logic is slightly shy of north, I don't quite hit the beacon signal, but all the information and instructions are solid.
Plus the combo of being in the military for a time, and being a play actor kinda made me good at faking just about anything, including sanity, for at least a few hours.
Of course you were…
You can't even remember the lies you tell about yourself
>The Taliban is becoming the new ISIS
what kind of brain damage causes someone to say something like this?
Technology is great. When you have a "plastic interface" life that tells you specifically your thoughts before you even understand and can even pinpoint other's thoughts. Like an extra sensory middle man. Basically computer brains are more like a liquid composite that contours the surface of the brain and absorbs the "emp of the brain". Pretty sure it won't use chips and its as easy as spiking your martini because its chemically activated.

i only need to remember on thing and its that decent people are tramautized by an unsightly wiener, and that is the one thing i have.
You mean it's ….. UNCUT?
try having a botched circumcision, not being able to get off until your late teens, then developing a chastity fetish just to make up for it.
Circumcision should be a crime.
>>3629526>Circumcision should be a crime.
It really should. It's not just a cosmetic surgery. It's deliberate mutilation of a child where the entire purpose is to cripple an organ. There are no benefits to it and phimosis can be treated without mutilation.
The medical studies claiming any benefits of it were written by pedophilic circumcision fetishists that were involved in groups like the Cutting Club, Acorn Society, and Gilgal Society. Some people involved in those groups got busted for distribution of hurtcore CP featuring circumcisions.

Can't just cut people's bodyparts off before they even had a chance to be sentient enough to make their own decision.
Also it modifies the mechanics of sex (why we Europeans generally don't get hand lotion jokes… cause we don't need extra lubrication
Also there are zero health benefits provided you aren't a smelly hobo that bathes once a year, and the only reason it even does anything at all is because scar tissue is more tough than regular skin. By that logic though we could start lopping off a lot of bodyparts just to prevent potential annoyances that may result from the body working as nature intended.
Well at least he's choosing to have his dick mutilated as an adult as opposed to having it forced on him as a child. Still not anywhere near as grotesque as tranny surgery.
Listen. Understand. That Drillcock is out there. It can't be reasoned with, it can't be bargained with…it doesn't feel pity of remorse or fear…and it absolutely will not stop. Ever. Until you are dead.
