That's a Geddy-bubble, not an anti-bubble.
Is this why my electric range in my house seems to be slower than molasses in boiling water?TIL about UL858, a safety standard that applies to electric coil cooktops/ranges. It requires that if a pan of oil be placed on a burner set to its highest heat, the pan must last a minimum of 30 minutes without igniting, or else the stove/range fails the test.
I also learned that, as of April 2019, any new electric coil cooktops/ranges which fail this test are now prohibited from sale in North America.
I stumbled over this fact while trying to find specific types of older (40's-70's) electric stoves. So now I guess I know why prices of older electric stoves strangely seem to be higher than they were last year.
Unless you’re living 250m below sea level, it could be.Is this why my electric range in my house seems to be slower than molasses in boiling water?
Well, he grew up in a province a kilometre higher* than his current home, which is pretty much at sea level, so there definitely that.Unless you’re living 250m below sea level, it could be.
...though if your range is > 5yrs old it’s more likely that you’re using too small of a burner for the pot, that the water started out colder than usual because Canada (and because of H2O’s absolutely ridiculous specific heat), that the burner is failing, that something is interfering with the burner hitting full power (dirty socket, failing rheostat, failing wiring, bad ground/crosstalk), ...or that your scale of subjective time just runs fast.
I take it you also read the "fixed ending?" (NSFW)Today I learned of a hentai manga called Metamorphosis, also known as Emergence, or 177013. It's one of the most depressing yet engrossing hentai manga I've ever read. It's long, 200+ pages, but I read the whole thing in one sitting, and near the end I was kinda misty-eyed a bit. It's like, this is definitely not what I'm looking for when I read hentai, but I also don't regret having read it.
Since this is not a NSFW thread, I will not link it, but it's not hard to find if you search a bit.
A) I wouldn't count on it. I hear the original flagAfter 50-some years (to this point) exposed to the extremes of the lunar environment, would any of them still be functional? Would these planned future missions even be permitted near the old sites to go find them?
A isn't probable - it's known. They track the site through telescopes and it's now a white flag. Only proof of mankind passing there is now a sign of surrender.A) I wouldn't count on it. I hear the original flag probably got bleached out due to solar radiation, too.
B) I hope so. I want the original sites to be put on the historic register of places, should we ever colonize.
I know for a fact that the flag is white. My bad for putting the "probably" in the wrong spot, but that's what made me say the cameras are probably ruined as well.A isn't probable - it's known.

Maybe, maybe not. Other items left behind have fared better than the dyes in the off-the-shelf flag.I know for a fact that the flag is white. My bad for putting the "probably" in the wrong spot, but that's what made me say the cameras are probably ruined as well.
Dash Button service will be discontinued Aug 31.So, I realize that I never did write back about my Dash experiences.
So, when I first told my wife I was getting Dash buttons, she though the idea was ridiculous. The dash buttons came in, which required me to install an app on my phone to configure. I understand the reasoning, but it was a bit of a chore. I got buttons for toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, and clorox wipes.
These are all things I buy in bulk usually anyway, and I configured the buttons to buy large quantities of these. The buttons work perfectly. Even my wife is won over. Whenever we're low on something, I can often hear her call to my son to push the button for it (which he loves to do). A couple days later, the items just show up. I get a notification on my phone when the order is placed, when it is shipped, and when it is delivered.
When my oldest stepson was visiting at Christmas time, my phone went off while I was in the restroom. Turns out his wife wondered what the buttons were, and pushed one. I was able to cancel the order before I even finished my business.
These things are handy, unobtrusive, and make my life easier because I don't gotta haul around huge bulk purchases in the cart when grocery shopping...hell, an 18 count of paper towels mostly fills up an entire shopping cart. I still don't understand all the negativity they got when they were first introduced. Amazon is continuing to expand their product lines that are Dash-able. I can see myself getting a few more buttons--and if they ever made a generic one (instead of a branded one) that could be configured to buy anything, I'd be all over it. But they probably won't any time soon, because I'm sure the co-branding company pays for that privilege.
