    [–] LockPickingLawyer decodes Master Lock Personal Safe by sight in seconds m0le 5 points ago in videos

    Go to any town with high bike crime and lock up anything rideable with a cable lock.

    The fuckers will have the lock cut off, in a busy area, faster than you could open it (key or code, it doesn't matter).

    You end up lugging a lock half the weight of the bike around if you want it to remain yours.

    Same here - I climbed up to my first floor balcony, bounced the door open (the lock didn't engage at both top and bottom) and into my house.

    50 people must've gone by while I was doing it - I'm in the centre of a small town with loads of pedestrians walking down the road. No one commented, no one (apparently) called the police.

    Real time location monitoring of everyone in an area defined only by money?

    People having muskets? Eh, whatever makes them happy. People having nukes? No. In the middle, there is an argument, but we're silently shifting to the point where any wannabe big brother can indulge their creepiness, and governments could have decent coverage of cities without huge amounts of spending.

    So the hotdog/bun thing might be a UK bit of bullshit too - we tend to buy one in 6s, the other in 8s, so they're not in sync. Is it the same thing with your meds, eg you get a supply of med A that lasts 3 weeks, med B lasts 4, med C lasts 7?

    As little as I like the various spy agencies, I'm pretty sure the NSA have the capability to extract info from every carrier grade router in the world if they want, either by using manufacturer installed taps, hardware or software, or extras added in shipping / customs, or undisclosed vulnerabilities, or the time honoured "bribe an employee to backdoor it" method.

    If anything, they're probably annoyed at the attention being focused on core telecoms links at the moment, and I suspect would prefer homogeneous networks at given carriers to allow easier bullshittery, rather than what looks to be the outcome of this process which is a mixture of vendors supplying core and edge.

    In the UK we get doctors prescriptions that will be for a certain number of pills, over a certain length of time (so I usually get prescribed 3 pills a day, for 28 days, so 84 pills total - then I get a new prescription).

    I take the prescription to a pharmacy and the phamacist counts out 84 pills. They put those pills in a generic pill bottle and stick a printed label on it.

    The generic bottles come in different sizes (which is good) but also different styles (less good), so while I always get the same volume of meds, and the bottle is always appropriately sized, it doesn't look the same from one month to the next.

    If you got a load of similar meds, you end up with identical pill bottles you can only tell apart by the printed label.

    You don't see the difference between monitoring by tech you control, and monitoring by tech someone else controls?

    And yet many European nations, including my own, the UK, have done source code reviews and concluded all is fine and we're good to carry on using the tech despite the US pissing and moaning.

    This is for the carrier grade routers rather than mobile phones, but complaining about privacy on an android phone with Google services is just pointless given the amount of calling home that already happens.

    [–] This pill bottle is too big for how many pills there are. m0le 1 points ago in assholedesign

    When I get my pills, it's with a prescription for a particular number. The pharmacy just uses an appropriately sized bottle and sticks a printed label to it.

    The only annoyance would be for people with several similar medications, especially as the bottles they use aren't always the same (I've had three different styles from the same pharmacy for the same med this year alone, all between 50-75% full).

    How does it work in the states? Do you just have to buy whatever size they offer and have the hotdog/bun annoyance of refilling at different times if you have multiple meds?

    As a physicist, no - direct, personal experiments. What evidence can you offer for any religion?

    [–] ELI5: What causes people of rich countries to have higher atheist population? m0le 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    1. Christianity, Islam and Judaism all have the concept of a heaven without needs (wealth unimaginable). That covers a really substantial proportion of the religious people in the world.

    2. Wealth can be material or spiritual, but how is a post-scarcity life not wealth unimaginable? Is there anyone on earth that can claim they have everything they desire?

    3. Rational reasons for choosing religion? Go on... (about all the rational reasons I can think of are cynical around opportunities and support from the local community, nothing to do with whatever drivel is being preached)

    [–] ELI5: What causes people of rich countries to have higher atheist population? m0le 38 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Religion is absolutely a crutch people lean on when things are difficult. When things are tough, remember, if you are good you'll have wealth unimaginable in the next life, whether that be an afterlife or reincarnation or whatever.

    There is a reason most religions preach that suffering now will be rewarded later, and it isn't just a way to excuse the existence of misery in the world.

    [–] TIL you have a greater risk of mental illness if you are highly intelligent. A survey of the top 2% of Mensa members showed that their rates of depression, bipolar disorder, BPD, SAD were all higher than the national average. Scientists suspect that a highly active brain might also be high sensitive m0le 1 points ago in todayilearned

    Because it needs saying each time. This isn't showing A then B, and it certainly isn't showing !A then !B, but just look at the rest of the comments.

    I'd also point to the introduction of the paper, where even they say "there are conflicting studies in the literature which point to an association between gifted IQ, particularly high verbal ability, and various mental and immunological outcomes such as depression"

    [–] When people start asking for a $15 dollar minimum wage m0le 2 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    So, to summarise, literally millions of people will get a pay rise. Someone will come up with a good way to automate these jobs that doesn't cost an absolute fortune in capital and maintenance, and jobs will slowly be replaced (because scaling construction of these robots would take time, and the capital investment of the upgrades will be substantial unless / even if the solution turns out to be bioengineered squirrels).

    Sounds good to me. A decade of better paid minimum wage staff and a gradual migration into other industries.

    Let's just pick one example to use - fast food. McDonald's can't even build a milkshake machine that runs properly, much less a fully automated restaurant. Some random drunk pulling on the wrong thing trying to get their food will break it, and then the restaurant is down until it can be fixed by a specialist engineer.

    [–] ELI5 Why do things break when they hit the ground from a large height but not when you catch them? m0le 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Force is mass times acceleration. Acceleration is change of velocity over time.

    If you change the velocity of something quickly (eg by ramming it into an unyielding surface like concrete or steel) that stops it almost instantly, you apply a very high acceleration and thus a very high force to the object.

    If you catch it, you don't stop it nigh-instantly - you slow it over a second or so, reducing the acceleration felt by the object and thus the force on it.

    Go talk to a pdoc first, and at least taper off rather than stop. A lot of the meds we take are mildly dangerous to stop suddenly.

    [–] Does an Author's opinion on a topic have more value than others? m0le 1 points ago in books

    Expertise in that field lends an opinion weight, writing a book doesn't.

    There are millions of diet books written by people with no knowledge of nutrition. There are books written by experts in fields not their own. There are books written by enthusiastic amateurs that may have been, or may not have been, meticulously researched.

    Then you have areas where there are no facts, only opinions. You can still have experts (they have studied a lot of the opinions) but experts will disagree more than normal.

    On your particularly controversial example, to me the opinion of a psychiatrist would hold more value than that of a person with anecdotal evidence, which in turn would hold more weight than someone operating from other people's opinions (eg clergy).

    I would however point out that the idea of taking control of something by destroying it is pretty dumb.
