    Holy shit the "open when sad" one is amazing.

    The line just isn't there.

    They really only show up later, and you will probably have replaced all your gear with better stuff by then.

    It was a translation error. Not in the Polish dub.

    Also, flag this post as spoiler.

    [–] About to start B&W, looking for advice Fizrock 2 points ago in witcher

    If you meet the level requirement and have finished the main game + HoS, that's really all you need.

    There a lot of backstory with Geralt & Co with Toussaint in the books.

    Not that we know of. Many of them were already dead from the freezing temperatures and oxygen deprivation.

    2 options:
    1. He guessed it.
    2. He found it written down somewhere (the senior steward would have had it)

    I would also guess his speed was impeded by the freezing temperatures and having to carry a mask.

    [–] Passengers on Jet Airways flight bleeding from the ears/nose after pilots 'forget' to switch on cabin pressure regulation Fizrock 1 points ago in news

    As the aircraft climbed, the pressure inside the cabin gradually decreased. As it passed through an altitude of 12,040 feet (3,670 m), the cabin altitude warning horn sounded. The warning should have prompted the crew to stop climbing, but it was misidentified by the crew as a take-off configuration warning, which signals that the aircraft is not ready for take-off, and can only sound on the ground.

    In the next few minutes, several warning lights on the overhead panel in the cockpit illuminated. One or both of the equipment cooling warning lights came on to indicate low airflow through the cooling fans (a result of the decreased air density), accompanied by the master caution light. The passenger oxygen light illuminated when, at an altitude of approximately 18,000 feet (5,500 m), the oxygen masks in the passenger cabin automatically deployed.

    Shortly after the cabin altitude warning sounded, the captain radioed the Helios operations centre and reported "the take-off configuration warning on" and "cooling equipment normal and alternate off line". He then spoke to the ground engineer and repeatedly stated that the "cooling ventilation fan lights were off". The engineer (the one who had conducted the pressurization leak check) asked "Can you confirm that the pressurization panel is set to AUTO?" However, the captain, already experiencing the onset of hypoxia's initial symptoms, disregarded the question and instead asked in reply, "Where are my equipment cooling circuit breakers?". This was the last communication with the aircraft.

    They pilots were already suffering from hypoxia when the masks dropped, so their judgement was already shot at that point.

    The pilots didn't put on their masks because they didn't realize there was a cabin depressurization problem. The hypoxia didn't exactly help, either.

    He was able to get his hands on another source of oxygen other than just the drop down masks, which only last for 20 minutes or so.

    Don't know which flight attendant you are referring to, but the flight attendant that remained conscious and made it to the cockpit didn't have the password to get into the cockpit. That's why it took so long for him to enter.

    I edited my comment to reflect what the source I found said. Apparently it took him so long to get into the cockpit because it was locked, and the only flight attendant with the code to get in was passed out. They're not even sure how he got into the cockpit at all.

    I believe he was unconscious for most of it, then woke up when the aircraft got lower during the autopilot holding pattern. He then found himself some oxygen, made his way to the cockpit, but by that point it was already too late to do anything.

    edit: Nope, that's wrong. It took him so long to get into the cockpit because the cockpit doors were locked and he didn't have the password. Investigators are not even sure how he got into the cockpit at all. Probably found it on the body of the senior steward.

    This was the cause of the crash of Helios Airways Flight 522. A technician switched the cabin pressure regulation from automatic to manual, didn't switch it back, then the pilots never checked to make sure it was in the right position. Plane flew to max altitude and everyone in the plane eventually passed out. The aircraft circled around it's destination on autopilot, tailed by F-16s, until it ran out of fuel and crashed. A flight attendant managed to get a hold of a portable oxygen supply and make into the pilots seat, but he had no experience flying 737s and the aircraft ran out of fuel almost as soon as he sat down.

    Don't try to dodge/roll them. Sprint perpendicular to him when he starts casting it and they can't hit you.

    Don't try to dodge the bats. Sprint perpendicular to him as he starts casting it. They'll miss every time.

    [–] RemoveDEBRIS satellite performs world’s first in-orbit space junk capture Fizrock 1 points ago in space

    About 1 ton of human created space debris enters the atmosphere on a daily basis, and there is about 8,000 tons floating around up there. On the other hand, about 100 tons of space dust and meteors enter the atmosphere every day, so it would take a while before we even rival what's already coming down.

    To expand on that further, somewhere between 600,000 tons and 15,000,000 tons of dust enters the atmosphere every day from terrestrial sources. I don't really see it becoming a legitimate problem unless we toss all safety out the window and decide to start deorbiting large spacecraft over populated areas.

    Except my 0.00000000000001% figure was referring to our contribution compared to all of the dust that gets pumped into the atmosphere on a daily bases from earth. That can be put there by anything from winds in the Sahara to industrial production.

    You were arguing in your first comment that the dust in the atmosphere from things burning up is affecting our weather patterns. That is of course failing to account that the minimum estimate for the amount of dust that enters our atmosphere every year is about 220 million tons, with estimates ranging as high as 5.5 billion tons. Kindly explain to me how 400 tons of dust is relevant when you are talking in the hundreds of millions of tons. And that's even assuming that the space debris fully burns up, which it frequently doesn't, especially with larger chunks.

    I'll still correct my number: 0.0000072%

    [–] Megathread: Updated information regarding the casting of Ciri Fizrock 2 points ago in witcher

    The casting agency tweeted that they had just finished up some casting for the Witcher in Warsaw. Definitely lends this post credence.

    [–] RemoveDEBRIS satellite performs world’s first in-orbit space junk capture Fizrock 0 points ago in space

    2 things.
    1. We would need to be launching spacecraft at a rate thousands of times higher that what we currently are for dust from spacecraft reentering to rival what we already get from space dust.
    2. The dust in the atmosphere that affects the weather is from the earth. There is billions of times more dust in the atmosphere that came from the earth than from space.

    I'm not entirely sure how you think our 0.00000000000001% contribution from satellites could possible do anything, even if it increased by several orders of magnitude.
