    [–] My rental car has a button called “Drive Mode” but why? atticuslodius 3 points ago in whatisthisthing

    The most common is ECO MODE (Economy) so you burn up less fuel, the Sport mode is to accelerate faster and possibly slightly increase horsepower (cannot confirm).

    [–] What is this drawing that we found while hiking at a former military area? (more in comments) atticuslodius 1 points ago in whatisthisthing

    There just isn't enough info here. I can see the 7/10ths and would assume "inches" but it doesn't indicate such.

    The dashed marking and arrow appear to point the trajectory to get to or hit the target, which looks to be some type of building with 2 things on top.

    Most likely was a quick sketch up used by soldiers during a training mission and they were communicating in the field.

    [–] The average satellite weighs 4.96 tons. There are an estimated 1,500 satellites orbiting Earth. We essentially made the Earth weigh 14,880,000 pounds less. atticuslodius 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    It doesn't dissipate completely, true. However, a satellite with a mass of 1000 kg has a weight force of 9800 N at the Earth’s surface. The radius of the Earth is about 6366 km, so at 6366 km above the Earth’s surface, the distance from the centre of the Earth will have doubled. The weight force pulling it towards the centre of the Earth will now only be a quarter as much but will still be 2450 N.

    [–] What military uniform is this? My grandfather was a con man, so it's possibly a costume. Seeking any information possible. Story in comments. atticuslodius 1 points ago in whatisthisthing

    My best guess is USAF. The double bars on his shirt collar would indicate a "Captain" of the US Air Force.

    The left pocket (on the right in the picture) shows an Air Crew badge, but there are multiple versions and without a close-up it's hard to tell for sure.

    So if your grandfather was an officer in the USAF then it would take a minimum of around 4 years as an officer to reach Captain status.

    [–] Found these in my dads belongings any ideas atticuslodius 12 points ago in whatisthisthing

    Definitely not a compass... it's a nut cracker for large nuts (I use a pair exactly like them for pecans.

    [–] My rental car has a button called “Drive Mode” but why? atticuslodius 3 points ago in whatisthisthing

    Vehicles with selectable drive modes often have up to four or five settings, all of which have their own distinct pre-set configurations. These can take the form of Economy, Comfort, Sport, Race or Off-road/Winter modes.

    Worse case, break it and try again... will cost you 1 additional diamond to re-scan in though.

    [–] Bite rate for fishing atticuslodius 4 points ago in StardewValley

    I think it increases the "capture" green bar size.

    [–] Animals not eating? Help! atticuslodius 1 points ago in StardewValley

    Maybe... There really isn't a lot of info on it tbh.

    [–] Interested in the game but not big on pixelated graphic. Do you guys think I would still enjoy this? atticuslodius 4 points ago in StardewValley

    I am strong into graphical genius games with good artwork, 3D and the such.

    I am addicted to this game and have already put around 65 hours into it.

    [–] Animals not eating? Help! atticuslodius 1 points ago in StardewValley

    Everyday you need to talk to your animals.

    Do you have a silo built? If so you can cut down grass to make feed for them that will go directly into the silo. You can grab it out of the box in the barn or coop and place it on each slot of the feed tray (just to make sure if they don't eat the outside grass then they can eat the inside feed).

    I leave my barn door open all the time and they are never grumpy from it. I just let them come and go as they please.

    [–] FAQs and beginner questions atticuslodius 1 points ago in StardewValley

    I have 100 Strawberry plants in my greenhouse. Since they are multi-harvest crops, I never have to replant anything.

    I then use those strawberries to supply my 35 preserves jar and 22 wine barrels.

    They are a common forage item in Fall in the Secret Woods.

    [–] FAQs and beginner questions atticuslodius 2 points ago in StardewValley

    Hats are for cosmetic purposes only. They do not provide any additional boosts. When you press the button to pull up your inventory, there are tabs along the top... The leftmost tab will view your equipment slots and you can place the hat on the head icon.

    [–] Switch players, does the console make playing Stardew Valley easier on your hands? atticuslodius 1 points ago in StardewValley

    I have tennis elbow sometimes as well. I bought this on PS4 and with the only complaint is having to press the shoulder buttons a lot to move between items, the controller feels pretty solid otherwise.
