    We have to raze Columbus first

    [–] [Postgame Thread] Michigan Defeats Michigan State 21-7 jnicho15 2 points ago in CFB

    Near the end of the Wisconsin game, the student section started chanting "Hornibrook". He then looked at us and gave us a thumbs up, and we all did the same.

    [–] Just retired a few old batteries and now my team is looking into getting several new ones for competition, what brand do you guys recommend? jnicho15 1 points ago in FRC

    I really doubt we have to, but we have gotten a new set of batteries every year for like the last 7 years, if not more. We started buying from BatteryMart a couple years ago. We make a practice robot and do a lot in the off-season, so they get a lot of use. It's probably more superstition than actual science, since we haven't invested in a real battery analyzer.

    [–] Receiving unnecessary "Presidential Alerts" jnicho15 1 points ago in mildlyinfuriating

    The Wireless Emergency Alert system is new, but:

    The second national EAS Test happened on September 28, 2016 at 2:20 pm EDT (11:20 am PDT) as part of National Preparedness Month. Prior to the test, FEMA tested regional EAS systems from November 17, 2014, to the most recent on March 24, 2016. The purpose of these tests were to ensure results of the 2011 test (see below) would not occur again.

    A third national EAS Test occurred on September 27, 2017 at 2:20 pm EDT (11:20 am PDT) until 2:50 pm EDT (11:50 am PDT) with the National Periodic Test (NPT) event code.

    The fourth national EAS test occurred on October 3, 2018 (delayed from September 20, 2018 due to Hurricane Florence), beginning for the first time with a Wireless Emergency Alerts presidential test message at 2:18 p.m. EDT (11:18 a.m. PDT), followed immediately by all other platforms at 2:20 p.m. EDT (11:20 a.m. PDT).

    [–] What are some examples in history of YOLO or 'Fuck it Lets Just do This' type of mentality? jnicho15 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I think the point is using a constantly-changing projection which simulates looking at a globe (like Google Maps does now) instead of a Mercator projection like it used to.

    [–] What are some facts that people don't want to accept? jnicho15 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Does the comparison to the world really mean much? People who grow their own food/live in a communal society wouldn't need to spend thousands of dollars a year on food. Do they account for things like that in these statistics?

    [–] I mean, i don't mind having my face be the icon of every, single, program... Right? jnicho15 1 points ago in softwaregore

    YouTube did a similar thing for me a while ago, but with someone else's information. It's apparently pretty common for this problem to happen with this exact person.

    [–] Receiving unnecessary "Presidential Alerts" jnicho15 4 points ago in mildlyinfuriating

    No. It's a different system. The nationwide Wireless Emergency Alert system is different from the local alerts. Back in 2011 when they did the first nationwide Presidential Alert EAS test on TV/radio they had a lot of issues, even though it appears to the public as the same system as the weather alerts.

    [–] The fact that we now have a presidential alert system jnicho15 1 points ago in mildlyinfuriating

    Nationwide EAS on TVs/radio was first tested in 2011, but this was the first test of the cell alerts.

    [–] Receiving unnecessary "Presidential Alerts" jnicho15 13 points ago in mildlyinfuriating

    It's called a test. This is the first test they've ever done of this system. The point of a test is to make sure it works. It's like once a year at most.

    [–] Putting a cigarette in a cop's face WCGW? jnicho15 -1 points ago in Whatcouldgowrong

    Cool. Michigan does as well. It became a thing for us starting at the Michigan State night/rain game last year.

    That's just moving the problem to the hub of the conducting wheel. You still need to get connectivity between a rotating part and a stationary part.

    [–] Making industrial chains jnicho15 2 points ago in specializedtools

    A guy years ago near me was killed by a gantry mill. Not sure if it milled him to death or just crushed him. Those things a scary. They're as big as a warehouse bay and you can walk into it while it's running. The guy was probably trying to clear chips and got caught in a rapid.

    [–] What podcasts are you most enjoying right now and why? jnicho15 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Darknet Diaries. It's stories about major hacks and interviews with the people who did them.

    [–] Space heaters jnicho15 1 points ago in firstworldanarchists

    I'm meaning space heaters make less heat for the same amount of power since there are making visible light. Is that what you are trying to say?

    [–] Space heaters jnicho15 0 points ago in firstworldanarchists

    Space heaters seen to emit more visible light than ICs do, so less would be turned into heat.

    [–] What is a dying tradition you believe should be preserved? jnicho15 18 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah, but if you're at school during lunch/study period, you wouldn't have another monitor with you.

    [–] What is a dying tradition you believe should be preserved? jnicho15 302 points ago in AskReddit

    I would hate not having enough screen real estate to have multiple windows open when doing homework. I'm fine with ebooks if it's a separate device or I can put the window on one half of like a 24" monitor, but trying to do homework with an ebook on a small laptop would be horrible. If I'm doing math homework, I'd want to have the book, Slader, and probably WolframAlpha all open at once.
