    [–] My DD on REFR villagewysdom 1 points ago in RobinHood

    I'm chalking this one more up to luck, my time line was a month but it paid off in a quarter. Thankfully I maintained the shares from when I did the DD.

    Thanks for the support, every technical analysis I came across says just about the same thing.

    REFR is out performing both its sector (computers and tech) and the market as a whole while also exhibiting sustainable long term growth the target price of $3 is easily in reach.

    Ohh Believe me I get it, I remember feeling frustrated not being able to get a decent photo of the deceleration of independence due to the low light levels and ban on flash photography.

    My surprise more came from when discussing window tinting I think of things that move (planes, trains, and automobiles).

    [–] Hello, I’m planning on buying a truck but I don’t necessarily know how to look for the “perfect one”. I’ll be able to spend around 22k, is that even enough to get a good f150? Sorry if this isn’t allowed here and thanks ! villagewysdom 2 points ago in f150

    I just purchased mine (XLT, supercrew, 3.5 v6 flex 4x2, 36k miles) last month for 23k (all in).

    I spent 3 months looking and researching before I was able to get this one, in that time the biggest thing I learned is how well the f150 retains its value. There are so many options and trim levels it can be overwhelming. So, start by establishing what you want up front and narrow your search down to just those vehicles helps a lot. I knew going in that I wanted a supercrew cab and less then 50k miles, from there I was able to bring the search results down and cast an ever wider net till I found mine just over 2 hours away.

    [–] Researchers have found a way to accelerate antimatter in a 1000x smaller space than current accelerators. What is now only possible by using large physics facilities at tens of million-dollar costs could soon be possible in ordinary physics labs. villagewysdom 9 points ago in science

    That is a fair point, I've never considered conservation of energy as part of a discussion regarding antimatter.

    However (spitballing here), if an engineered containment solution was accomplished:

    The efficiency of the fuel use and energy/weight ratio would still be beneficial for space travel where refueling isn't an option.

    In that situation the benefits of more efficient fuel storage may overcome the cost of the production of that fuel. I'm sure there is a point on the graph where weight reduction and increased storage benefits crosses over the cost to produce. Especially if the mission was to gather/mine materials from space and return.

    I'm almost thankful that antimatter is cost prohibitive to produce. Trying to control anything that can release 9 x 1017 joules/kg by simply coming in contact with matter.

    Thanks to Wikipedia (I had to get some comparison information) matter/antimatter annihilation releases 3 orders of magnitude more energy than nuclear fission. And a Kg of antimatter annihilating with a Kg of matter yields slightly less energy than the tsar bomba.

    Edit: I mean to say accidents happen and engineering foolproof containment measures would itself be cost prohibitive.

    As best we could tell (major assumption here) there was, at the time, 10 million federal employees including military that stopped receiving a paycheck/ working during the shutdown which last 17 days in 2013. As soon as the it was announced that a budget for 2014 was approved all of those employee could return to work and started buying the items they normally would have during the previous 17 days.

    I worked in an Amazon Fulfillment center for 2 years, and absolutely loved my job. Prime was relatively new at the time so Prime Day wasn’t a big change from the day to day work. We didn’t even schedule mandatory overtime for it. The worst day I ever had there was the day the U.S. government opened back up after an extended shutdown.

    I remember planning the day and we went from a painfully slow day with low due outs at 10 am to all hell breaking loss at the announcement of the government opening up at noon that day. We had to continually refresh the due out list every few minutes because it doubled a number of times on it and staffing needed to be adjusted to compensate. We rolled so many shipments that day it put a strain (unexpectedly) on the carriers to make up for the delay.

    Don't get me wrong I love mine as well and I agree it is low maintenance. But the feed ramp jam was pretty common across the 9ve and 40ve. But, for $250-$350 you can't go wrong. source

    The only issue I've had with mine was the failure to feed FMJ rounds, just polished the feed ramp and haven't had any problems since.

    Idk, read receipts aren't even close to fool proof, had a guy that I worked with insist upon using them so set outlook up to not respond to them. (simple settings change), because I looked at as this cover his ass but does nothing for me.

    This did eventually come back to bite me in the ass after a year or so later when I went to work at a different site and copied my outlook data files over and didn't change the settings first. Outlook viewed all the files as unread, so I selected all and set all to read. He got something like 5000+ read receipts from me all at once.
