    [–] What makes absolutely 0% sense to you? jnicho15 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I have absolutely no clue how to do even basic physics in imperial. It's just makes no sense. The very first thing I do is convert to metric. Lbs, lbf, slugs!

    Watch all of Deviant Ollam's talks. They're great.

    CAN is a low level network. There are a ton of secure networking systems built on top of it, just like the internet. Secure things can be sent encrypted or over private can buses not on the data link connector.

    Another trick is to shoot freeze spray/upside down canned air through the top gap of the door/between double doors

    [–] Google records your location even when you tell it not to jnicho15 7 points ago in worldnews

    When is was looking at my location history, I found that I was in Seattle, Hawaii, Mexico, and more during a huge event I went to in St. Louis with like 20,000 people from all around North America. It must have associated the hotspots of people around me with those locations.

    [–] What are the best, most useful, must-have Google Chrome extensions? jnicho15 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Well it already has. A few times. The data really wasn't compromised, but it was bad enough that they said to change your master password.

    Tubular lock picks are amazing. It's basically as easy as a key. Just push it in and turn.

    You actually can't. This is what the domain really is: http://xn--80ablavxscdb8f8a2c.xn--c1avg/ It's a special code of ASCII characters that get translated by most browsers into non-ASCII text. This encoding can also be used for phishing attacks since there are very similar characters in the Cyrillic alphabet to the Latin alphabet, so someone could create aрр which is actually It's called punycode and is also how emoji domains work.

    [–] Just in for an inspection & was greeted with this... jnicho15 4 points ago in Justrolledintotheshop

    I just edited a postprocessor and left a fun message right before the M30

    [–] [Serious] People who spend days, weeks or months at sea: what is the creepiest or most unsettling thing you’ve seen or that has happened out there? jnicho15 3 points ago in AskReddit

    In some parts of the ocean, the propeller with agitate bioluminescent algae causing a light show to appear underwater in the wake.

    Jim Lovell uses it to find a dark aircraft carrier while flying a plane without instruments in the Apollo 13 book

    [–] Cable ties jnicho15 35 points ago in techsupportmacgyver

    Spark plug wires. They're usually run spaced out like that between the distributor/coilpacks to the spark plugs.

    [–] Do fractures count? jnicho15 1 points ago in Neverbrokeabone

    Off the team

    [–] He REALLY likes the new Guinea Pig jnicho15 1 points ago in WhatsWrongWithYourDog

    The point is that the built in GIFV/mp4 viewer in Reddit apps probably doesn't support slowing down high frame rate video. Sure it might be able to do a high framerate, but it wouldn't have a "1/8 speed" button to actually take advantage of the extra frames.

    [–] I mean, it makes sense but how often does the latter happen? jnicho15 2 points ago in ScarySigns

    Similarly, various CAD programs make you certify that you are an American working for a US company, not North Korea, Vietnam, or a bunch of other countries.

    That's not really a name. It's just one-eighteen-ium. And it's Oganesson now

    [–] YSK that online databases that collect your personal information are creepy as hell, and that you can get your information removed. jnicho15 8 points ago in YouShouldKnow

    A good quantity of it comes from the government. says this:

    All public records appearing on are sourced from official government public records that were released under FOIA and public record laws.
