re: How long past 'Best by' Date can I use refrigerated eggs? - Volvagia
[quote]The reason old eggs float is because of the organic material breaking down and gasses being produced. Yes, older eggs have more buoyancy but if they are floating on top of the water - they are bad. Open it and find out yourself.[/quote] You are wrong. It CAN be the case. But it’s not d...

re: How long past 'Best by' Date can I use refrigerated eggs? - Volvagia
Quite a bit. As in months. Pasteurized eggs are pretty stable. Hell, they aren’t even refrigerated over in Europe. (Although we wash off the wax cuticle because we are scared of Salmonella making us shite our pants and as a result American eggs doesn’t quite have THAT much stability.) Just cr...

Nope. Mann at least has some experience at playing one as a “Chief Meteorologist” for a small town news paper in Bumfrick, Idaho, but his formal education was a Bachelor of Arts in Geography. ...

It’s worth noting that the two at the bottom are just Joe Blows. Cliff Harris is an insurance adjuster by education, Who has written commercial books about climate but that’s all. Mann is a guy who self identifies as a TV personality, working at the same small market news channel since he wa...

[quote]Why do that to yourself? Now I have to ghost her and she will get her feelings hurt.[/quote] Because then they can blame you for being so superficial rather than it being a direct result of their appearance. Even if she wasn’t an overweight troll, I’d have serious problems at the start...

re: Weekend thoughts: a hydrogen economy - Volvagia
[quote]You can physically fit more pure H2 In that volume than you can N2H4. At the same conditions meaning same phase.[/quote] Difference is to accomplish the same phase, hydrazine is liquid over 200 degrees F You’d have to get that hydrogen at a balmy negative 423 F to get the same phase. ...

re: "Mom code" - would you keep quiet if your kid was having symptoms or exposed to Covid? - Volvagia
No. Although it’s not because of COVID. Knowingly sending sick kids to school with frank symptoms severe enough for you to notice to spread it around is a pretty shitty act in most circumstances. I’m actually hoping the school nurse calls her RIGHT when she arrives at work. ...

re: Factorio - Never thought I'd love a game like this. - Volvagia
I’d definitely look at some guides online. Some of the wiring configurations are brilliant. I make a memory latch logic check to break the hysteresis that can sometimes occur if you have a large battery bank/switching between various power sources. Or if you want to generate emergency power su...

Once you want to try something a little different, try your hand on Oxygen Not Included. It’s made by Klei, the same people who made Don’t Starve. It’s a survival sim in space, kinda a cross between Dwarf Fortress and The Sims. Putting the finishing touches on my base cooling system usin...

You didn’t include the best one of all IMO: Green light I don’t quite understand what you mean by not having a linked card as it will “allow you to monitor his spending” You’ll only know what he tells you otherwise. And for your goal of having him learn account management, you do seem t...
