    [–] Americans' plastic recycling is dumped in landfills, investigation shows davidjschloss 3 points ago in news

    Sure you don’t want used earbuds. But the packaging CAN be made of non-plastics and still be self contained. Apples air pods come in a cardboard container that’s shrink wrapped, which is better than a plastic container. Their cables come in a cardboard box that’s just taped.

    You can have earbuds without a plastic wrap and have them be unused too.

    [–] [SideQuest] It's here! Thanks for hanging in there! davidjschloss 2 points ago in OculusQuest

    Agreed. I did a donation when they last talked about this update, it’s y’alls turn.

    [–] Forget Beat Saber, try out Robo Recall! davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    It does. Check YouTube for sure by side. Mostly it’s particle and element differences. Puddles with reflections. Sun glinting off chrome. That sort of thing. But it’s more immersive with the higher level of graphics.

    But it’s also a great example that s good experience can make the level of graphics quality much less important.

    [–] TIL that mosquitoes can not only smell what blood type you are, they prefer type O. In fact, people who are type O are twice as likely to be bitten than someone who is type A. davidjschloss 1 points ago in todayilearned

    There have to be some other factors. My wife and I are both O+. She gets landed on/bitten multiple times more than I do in the same settings. So much so that if I keep her near me when there are mosquitos around I’m barely bothered by them.

    [–] Soviet Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev stuck in space during the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 davidjschloss 4 points ago in space

    Funny since page 1 starts with the bit about how the post war committee deleted fifty percent of the report and that’s why the book exists.

    Damn nature, you scary.

    [–] A reference to how strong chimpanzees really are davidjschloss 2 points ago in gifs

    This is more like a reference to how many times the same clip can end up on Reddit.

    [–] Harold’s Significance davidjschloss 3 points ago in UmbrellaAcademy

    He was obsessed so when he left jail I feel like heading to where they lived seemed a good plan

    The journal probably talked about her killing the nannies and he thought “okay now I have a way to kill them.” He tells Vanya they have to “bring the fight” to the siblings after Allison is presumed dead. Her powers are the only thing strong enough to kill them all.

    [–] The first humans who ate crabs must have been really hungry to try and eat an armored sea spider davidjschloss 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    I can see how a lot of foods, like Kimche and fermented shark happened accidentally. Buried to use the coolness of the earth to preserve it but it fermented.

    Same with cheese (they used cow bladders to carry milk and they have rennet in the stomach lining. Rennet is what helps turn milk into cheese. So someone went to drink their milk one day and it was solid.

    For crabs, lots of animals eat them. You can watch gulls and other birds rip them apart and eat them. So at least then you know they’re edible to some other animal, which is a good sign.

    [–] Beat Saber is a cut above Moonrider's saber mode, but Moonrider's boxing mode kicks the crap out of BoxVR davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    I guess I find it un-enjoyable because I don’t like the music and because the daily goals and other metrics are pretty useless.

    Again, I like the workout I get. But I’m doing it to work out, not to enjoy it.

    [–] Beat Saber is a cut above Moonrider's saber mode, but Moonrider's boxing mode kicks the crap out of BoxVR davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    You’re missing my point. Workouts are unenjoyable. They exist for the purpose of exercise and not fun experientially.

    VR allows for brand new experiences. Beat Saber burns calories but the food design and entertainment value makes it not feel like a workout.

    Box doesn’t feel enjoyable. It feels like working out for the sake of working out. That’s a waste of the benefits of VR.

    [–] Oh damn davidjschloss 1 points ago in nextfuckinglevel

    I liked the effect better in the original Episode IV, not this Special Edition crap.

    [–] FedEx refused to deliver a Huawei phone into the US davidjschloss 8 points ago in gadgets

    Funny that Fedex probably ships tons of illegal drugs every day of the week.

    [–] Has reading actually increased your vocabulary? davidjschloss 1 points ago in books

    I no read big. I not know why need words lots. Book reading smarts you? No! Book words not good for knowing.

    [–] Beat Saber is a cut above Moonrider's saber mode, but Moonrider's boxing mode kicks the crap out of BoxVR davidjschloss 3 points ago in OculusQuest

    It works up a sweat but the music sucks and you miss a lot because the cameras can’t register the controllers well when you wind up for a punch.

    [–] Quest Decal Ideas? davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    Ready player one exists. There’s another thread somewhere with a site that has a ton of skins. I’m too lazy to look on my phone though.

    [–] Beat Saber in class on the last day of school! davidjschloss 5 points ago in OculusQuest

    My son’s elementary school ends next Friday with a week of half days.

    We didn’t have snow days. NY has new requirements for classroom hours. So now instead of having a summer my son has to get up early to go play Uno for three hours.

    [–] My wife tried "Bait!" and this was her reaction davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    She looks like a master Baiter

    (I’m sorry I couldn’t resist the joke)
