I work in remote areas, sometimes for days on end. Yes. I have pooped outside.

If you use the energy input to do work and consider the heat generation as waste, I see the carbon impact of mining.

If you just use the cpu as a substitute for the resistance coil in a space heater with the intention of making heat, is there waste?

My understanding (and I could be absolutely wrong) is that nearly all of the energy used by a computer is converted to heat eventually. If that’s true the only difference is that some work gets done in the middle. Is that right?

Ah, I see where you’re coming from.

No need for supporting data. Virus populations definitely have exponential growth. I was just being pedantic about what quantitative means.

Well the axis isn’t labeled, so it could be log scale. It could also be any random range chosen by the graph maker. It looks linear though.

Quantitative just means that it is represented in numbers. It doesn’t have anything to do with the scale used on a graph. Log scales do work better for analysis and deeper understanding of population data (like virus loads), but they are much less intuitive for most readers. These are absolutely quantitative data.

A thin non-cotton pair of socks inside your thickest socks will help you keep warm and help keep your feet dry. Be careful that the two sets of socks aren’t tight enough to restrict circulation though.

Keeping you core temp up and blood pumping helps too. I also find that having my feet up when I am at home keeps them warmer. Not sure if that’s just because I have cold floors or if it is another circulation thing.

I can’t see the account activity and it doesn’t make any sense to ask for proof of no trolling behavior. I will assume you are correct that there was no trolling. Was that your account?

I do know that mods have to make calls like that all of the time and I haven’t seen anything to make me think that ours aren’t working in good faith. I don’t always agree with decisions that are made, but the job is difficult and voluntary.

Even better, the mods on this instance don’t have to power to stop a person from interacting on Lemmy by joining another instance or even creating their own. We are free and encouraged to find a place that welcomes us.

Read it again without the word ‘anti-vaxx’ and see if you agree with the ban under the site rules. Now imagine it said ‘trolling and weightloss pill spammer.’ Would you be upset because there is no rule against that specific type of spammer?

I think you mean:

Stop using abbreviations (frowning face)

Sounds delicious and I learned what pulses are. Pulses=beans for any one else wondering.

Me too, but it reminds me of this: https://xkcd.com/2241/

I’m not sure who you are trying to ask, but my advice is to look for a local expert and ask them what field guide they use. Unfortunately, there isn’t a guide for the world (or even a whole country sometimes).

Also not even a crisis in the US. Workers realizing they have choices doesn’t equal a crisis unless you make your money off them.

Absolutely, these are seasoned carrots on the bun. If they’re good they are good because they are carrots not because they look like hotdogs.

Yeah, too much text. Simplified: Boil carrots until fork tender. Mix the rest of the ingredients and put in a container with the boiled carrots for 1 day in fridge. Put carrots and some of the liquid in a pan, heat until hot. Eat on bun.

The article is talking about the drug isolated from the mushroom not the mushroom itself. See my other comment for a link to typical recreational doses of the drug. You are absolutely correct for dose of typical dried mushrooms though.

Lablabi (adapted from a Milk Street recipe)

This is one of the best tasting and easiest things I make. If you don’t want to buy harissa you can make your own pretty easily and keep the cost down. The measurements don’t need to be precise at all, so I only translated to metric using numbers I thought I could multiply in my head. Let me know if…

Is this a cat?

Opinions on Divested Computing Group

Does anyone have experience with this organization (https://divested.dev)? There isn’t any footprint I can find of them outside their repos and message boards. …

Looking for a new mobile OS

I have been running lineageOS on my OnePlus 2. I liked it, but Lineage has stopped supporting my phone. There are two options that I have been able to find as replacements - postmarketOS and /e/OS. Any thoughts on those or other recommendation? Anything that gets security updates, is open source, an…

Here is a video demonstrating how to make inari (tofu pouches filled with rice). Sushi purists might take issue with some of his technique, but they probably don’t need to watch this anyways :)…

Yumm sauce

This is a copycat recipe from a restaurant. They serve it on top of rice, beans, olives, cilantro, and green onions. We put it on anything that needs a little something extra and change up the spices to match. It is supposed to be thick like a cheese sauce, but it tastes like its own thing. Anyways:…


The large flowered collomia (Collomia grandiflora) is just starting to bloom around me. They are annual and have cool blue pollen (typically pollen is yellow). You can see the pollen on the anthers at the center of each flower. …

Anti to Pro

Sometimes defining things by what they aren’t creates a lot of ambiguity. As in what do you actually want if not consumerism. So, fellow anti-consumerists, what do you value that is in opposition to consumerism? I am for (pro) the respectful use of resources. We need to give back at least what we ta…

Question about wave/particles interacting

Does it make sense to ask: How hard does a photon hit an object? …

This one is meadow-foam (Limnanthes douglasii). It’s annual that is native to prairies of the west coast of North America. Smells great, looks cool, and bugs like it. Comercially, similar plants are grown for the oil from their seeds. The seeds off this one will just fall where they want to sprout u…


Wasting drinking water to move sewage

In the usual sanitary sewer system we use drinking water to move waste through pipes towards resource recovery plants (wastewater treatment plants). Across the US the infrastructure is in disrepair and needs a lot of attention, so getting a wasteful system running right is going to take a huge inves…

For me it is my phacelia (Phacelia tanacetifolia) blooming. I throw some seed down wherever I don’t have other plans because the bugs love the flowers? What have you got going?..


Mid level knowledge

It is easy to find articles and guides designed for laypeople. If you know the right keyword, it is just as easy to find professional/expert level papers and articles. I have noticed that this is the case across fields. Is that what other folks experience? Where do you go for information when laypeo…
