Re: Music Fleeting Thoughts

I'm listening to all my songs on shuffle and when Sleeping on the Sidewalk started I thought it was a ZZ Top song.
It's also kind of odd how long it takes for me to recognise even the artists and I've heard most of these songs many times.

1936: "Desert Golfing"

https://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/desert_golfing.png Title text: I just want to stay up long enough to watch the ball drop into the hole number 2018.

Re: Lucky Ten Thousand (TIL)

TIL (well not today, probably two days ago) I learned, that whether two events are simultaneous depends on the speed of the observer. It's one of those things, that sounds super weird but also something I could've realised just from knowin about the existence of time dilation.

Re: 1934: "Phone Security"

The main caveats I can think of are (A) constructing a homemade EMP might be illegal, and (B) it almost definitely would require more power than a typical power supply can put out, let alone provide from one eight-pin connector. (C) the not uncommon (enough) GPS glitch where you can get a blip in t...

Re: xkcd Skyscraper

Floor 1172 contains the back door. All of them, including metaphorical back doors into encryption systems. Luckily the doors are so densely packed that opening any door requires opening all other doors beforehand, which alleviates the safety concerns by making every door impossible to open.

The first thing to do is open it up and look for a fuse. If it isn't that simple a quick check is to smell each component* (the smell of burnt electronics should be obvious).
