Who uses cash anymore anyway? I wouldn't like to carry Hundreds on my person and have to run the gauntlet of the unhoused and the drug addicts getting to a Popeye's in the first place. During height of the pandemic most places (that were still open) stopped taking cash and coins and went exclusivel...

I recall getting payment in the form of ten $100 bills and then spending them perhaps fifteen years ago. I didn't have any trouble spending them. :D I knew somebody that got a couple $1000 bills for they're car back in the 80s. They're still in circulation, but you have to order them ahead. You hav...

Yes, I used floppy disks on Apple IIes that my middle school had. Somewhere I still have a copy of Taipan and Oregon Trail on floppy disks. Those were computer games coded in Basic for those who do not know about them. I figured out an easy win strategy on Taipan that almost guaranteed a high score ...

I was alone this Thanksgiving, as I could not travel due to my job duties. I felt bad that I could not be there to help my elderly mother in Kansas. It was a depressing day for me. Thanksgiving has not really been the same since my father died nearly two decades ago. I'm so sorry to hear about your...

Right now I have a three inch long gash in my right shin. I debated on sowing it up, but decided that it was not deep enough to bother. It was caused by me while trying to pour out a barrel of water into a drain area. The water was from testing chemical showers in the lab. The bottom of the plastic ...

I am enjoying the show. Humans keep feeding AI information while underestimating it. AI will grow into a monster in due time. Keep prodding the tiger is what I say.

I’m sorry you went through that. In my experience, religion doesn’t make people behave better. They can still be bullies and abusers. A lot of my complex trauma is tied into religion. One of the most therapeutic things I’ve ever done was leave religion and belief in the Bible behind. Everyone is di...

My father suffered from C-PTSD. He was physically abused by his father when he was young (growing up in the great depression era). That particular grandfather died years before I was born. My dad referred to him as “one mean, angry SOB” that I was very lucky not to meet. At times, he would remember...

I have known about this research project for some time. In a nutshell, they are super-cooling matter to almost absolute zero to get the wave functions to combine into one wave function. We understand this as multiple atoms becoming one large atom. I have been following this research since the early ...

No, AS only changed the route that I traveled, not the overall direction that I was going towards. I still would have become a scientist in the end. I have much less personal relationships than my peers, so I do not have the social successes that they have. Some people look down at me sometimes beca...

Amazonian Amerinds east caterpillars. Usually cooked, but not always. When they eat them live...its looks like folks eating big fat french fries...that are alive and squirming around. But caterpillars cant really put up a serious fight, and choke you to death. But non human animals do have the prob...

Do you think it will get to a point where it will think for itself I don't know. But if it does, I hope it doesn't go all HAL 9000, Skynet, GLaDOS, or Allied Mastercomputer on us all. I actually hope it does go down that path towards destruction. Humanity needs to become challenged. It has become t...

I have always been a picky eater. Part of it has to do to my food allergies (egg, alcohol, rice). My father was highly allergic to seafood, so I try not to tempt the hand of fate (except for the occasional deep fried shrimp). I do not like to mix my foods together if I can avoid them, as I want to h...

No one believes that a big mac is a nutritious meal. It doesn't even take a calculator to realize that a couple cups of rice and a 1/2 can of tuna are more nutritious for around 20% the cost. I had to laugh a bit when I saw this as I cannot eat those three things. Big Macs have eggs (allergic) in t...
