There is a list. I score fairly high on that list. 8 out of 10 is a lot to overcome. I will never be Normal.

I have to be ok with that.
What is Normal? After all.

Man cyberstalking other men to destroy the man without touching the man?
Like Royals of Old?

So weird. Is that Normal behavior for men?
Stalking one another across the planet?

That, kind of, sounds like fun.
Is there a point system?

What is Catchy Catchy like?

I agree. It might be nice for us to think about what we are listening to, for a damn change.

We have always had stupid songs. The level of stupid to criminally insane has been increasing in the name of freedom.
For the Love of God! Turn it down or preferably; Turn it off!

Then think about it. I know we should not say the first thing that wants to fall out of our mouths. But; We do.
What falls out? Usually one of the last things put into the head is the first thing to fall out.

If we listen to a lot of stupid and crazy, we are going to echo stupid and crazy.
It is, just, an echo. An echo is usually a softened sound. Thank the Gods, most of us can not faithfully reproduce those sounds.

Re: unhatched fishes and turtle excluding devices

A few months ago they installed automatic light sensors on the bathroom doors at work. They consist of a box wired to the lights' power supply, and wires linked to two small black boxes (less than an inch square) at around knee-level on either side of the door frame. This arrangement somehow detects when people enter or leave the bathroom, turning the light off if nobody is left in the room, and on if someone enters. The light then stays on until the last person has left the room again. I figured it might be some kind of electromagnetic field thing, but I'm not really sure - what puzzles me the most is how some kind of simple beam at knee-height can tell whether the person passing the sensor is entering or leaving the room. Does anyone have any idea how it works?

It's possible to pass by undetected by deliberately stepping really high over the level of the knee-high sensors on the frame, so it's not a field that covers the entire doorway.

The only way for us to know is for you to try it, keep records and tell us.
It is going to turn you into one of Those people. Stepping high into the loo, then using a battery operated light to write notes.

Walk funny on the tiles, buy a stopwatch dedicated to timing your pee and you become one of an odd bunch of internet posters.
People that know stuff.

What do we know? Most large mammals pee for 21 seconds. Some tile patterns require more complex rules than other tile patterns
and the light in the loo may be a motion sensor.

If it is a motion sensor it will turn the light off after X seconds of no motion.
If you can't step over it, Hold Still.

Or; Better yet, Ask the Engineer that installed it. You might call that person the maid. Ask the maid.
Maids know a lot about how shit works.

Unlike movies, laser beams are not usually visible. The whole point of a laser beam is that it forces light to go mostly the same way in the same direction, likely not into your eye, so that's normal. It's also probably not a frequency you can see, and maybe the intensity is too low too!

I don't think the question was "why can't I see it?".

Maybe there's more than one beam, and it tells in which order you cross them.

I wonder if it would be possible to move some object multiple times in the out direction so that the detector decrements the number of people in the room into negative numbers, and multiple enterings would be needed to increase the number to positive. Or alternatively, if the counter stops at zero, at least turning off the lights when people are still in.

Ah, that makes sense, and for some reason I hadn't thought of it. You'd need to be very precise aligning the sensors, though, as they're pretty small. Actually, a single wide beam opposite two detectors would probably be more reliable to set up and should provide the directional sensing function. The boxes on the frame look identical - not like a receiver and a transmitter - but I guess that could easily just be cosmetic.

No. Get your science mumbo-jumbo out of here!

It's definitely a fairly-folk living inside the sensor box. Motion sensors are the rent-a-cops of the fairies. They aren't allowed to do anything but observe and report.

Code: Select all

Remains unfetched. Should have looked up Python code.

Yesterday first live improv performance, first time on a stage. It was awesome! My best friend that came to watch said to the improv-group during the review of the course 'During this half year I've seen my friend change in a purily positive direction.' How sweet :3

Awesome!

I did my first improv performance in July and I've been hooked ever since.

My friend had a whose line themed party this past weekend. It was very, very fun.

I had a dog for an hour today! Meet the little guy:

He was hanging around a busy intersection, with no one nearby. So I got curious, then nosy, then bothered: tags yes, but nothing giving address or name. I stood there awkwardly for a few minutes until the neurons slowly get in gear -- oh hey, the city tag had a phone number. I have a cell phone. This can happen.

So I perch myself on a restaurant's steps and chat with the nice folk at the city's general erk line. We decide that I'll take doggy home, since I'm nearby, and an officer will come collect the moppet and do whatever they do to get it back home.

That was one heavy little pomeranian (or whatever it was). My right arm is still sore from carrying the little furball up the hill to home. We camped by my front door (apparently the least stress-inducing place in my apartment) for an hour or so, with lots of petting and cooing to offset the whimpering. No interest in a water dish, so he/she hadn't been gone from home for long.

I was a little sad to say goodbye, but not for long. Here's hoping that Fuzzball is going to be home soon.

I am generally a dog person, but I hate pomeranians. Hate. They are mean-spirited and yippy.

This one was quite pleasant, though it was hard to tell through all the nervousness. (She did eventually calm down and nap a bit.)

I own a kind, loving, quiet chihuahua.

I want to know just what the fuck happened so I can replicate it because holy shit, awesome tiny dog.

... on the other hand, he's also a rescue of sorts and from what they said of his life until we got him.... perhaps not. As what they told us was basically dog abuse, so what they didn't tell us was... probably worse dog abuse.

Those little chihuahuas can be mean little dogs.
One remarkably vicious little beast can effect the way I see a whole breed.

There were more than one jumpy, grumpy chihuahua.
One was a dangerous dog. It was so little!

yes. Dogs are mistreated, sometimes.
On rare occasions the dog is at fault.

The people had to surrender that chihuahua.
That little bastard was hurting people and the people were crying.

I like dogs and many of them like me.
That little bastard bit me! It hurt, too.

If a big dog had bitten me with that kind of passion,
I would have an arm missing.

If you have a sweet little chihuahua, thank your lucky stars.
I know they can be sweet. I also know they can be a difficult dog to know.

My parents have a Maltese (it was my grandmothers) and he starts barking every 5 minutes or so. I've known this dog since I was 12, so I sort of love him, but god is he annoying. He's also the one who chases our cat, our other (bigger) dog doesn't.

Indeed. We know a few others who meet the definition of Anklebiters. In that, they bite my wife's ankles every time she's around them.

And most others I've been around have pretty much always been loud, justified barking machines.

That being said, I'm sad to hear that you've been attacked by the tiny little bastards as well. It's never a pleasant experience, especially when the owner is laughing it off as their tiny bites can't do much actual damage, just cause pain. Causing pain's enough to be wrong.
