well. It was yesterday; Still.

I learned Oklahoma has many more earthquakes than California has.
http://earthquaketrack.com/p/united-sta ... oma/recent

4 earthquakes today
26 earthquakes in the past 7 days
145 earthquakes in the past month
1,955 earthquakes in the past year

The earthquakes in Oklahoma are from what locals may call 'fucking fracking'.

Any quake under 4 is not much of a quake.
Any quake over 4 gets more and more exciting.

The people in Oklahoma don't get a Pacific view or the majesty of the Serria Nevada.
All they get is flammable tap water and broken dishes and mirrors.

I've spent most of my life in earthquake country.
We learned how to hang pictures and use museum tack for valued knick-knacks.

It's a little funny.
The H-Bomb training for school children and Quake training for children is almost identical.

In quake country, it is highly recommended to run into open spaces.
That's not true for H-Bomb training.

I wonder if Oklahoma will start getting sink holes.
Maybe Oklahoma will become a sink hole.

Are we going to miss Oklahoma when it disappears into a fracking crevasse?
Loads of people say they will miss California when it falls in the Ocean.

I'm not convinced that submerging it under 100 feet of seawater would solve California's shortage of suitable water for drinking, watering livestock and irrigating crops. Moving it 100 miles west without sinking it and doing a bit of blasting further south, leaving a wide-open below-sea-level basin that would fill with salt water, would affect the weather and probably cause more rain, but it'd cut California off from the Colorado river. It'd also split Lake Tahoe down the middle, which would raise some legal issues with all the ex-coastal hotels wanting compensation for loss of shoreline.

TIL that I did a fine job of sharpening the blade on my cross-cut pruner. Ouch.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.

California fires.
https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mi ... TmU5XK-qJQ

Oregon and Washington fires.
http://gacc.nifc.gov/nwcc/information/firemap.aspx

Why I can not find a map with all three western states treated all the same is beyond me.
California's fire map looks important and like the entire state is on fire. It's not.

It has been hot.
It has been dry.

We are so very fortunate, so far.

Well, no, he wasn't arrested or charged. Given that the scuffle seemed to be with the Border agents and I can find no information describing the command he apparently ignored, I'm assuming it was something on the lines of "What the hell is that? Can.. sir, can.. Sir! Can you stop zooming around for five.. Sir! We need to discuss ... Sir, please stop riding whatever that is so we can discuss your entry to the US. Sir, I need you to step off.... Sir. SIR! .... alright, tackle him"

Or, if he was traveling through the airport proper, it might have been an endangerment thing.

But calling it a hoverboard is also wrong, as apparently it was just a douchebag signal.

I was searching for wifi antenna shapes and this one showed up. I'm not sure if the research has been performed "just to test the effectiveness of a swastika-shaped antenna" or "to examine the quality of the simulation compared to reality". Moreover, they didn't try a mirrored swastika.

Oh yeah, we have: South, Southeast, Central-west, Northeast and North. Central-west and Southeast are basically side-by-side. Also, the North region goes way further West than the Central-west region.

It might not have a West, but it definitely has a west. (Like how California is in the southern United States, but not in the Southern United States.)

Ok so basically the SABRE engine is a special engine that's designed to run on fuel and oxidiser when it's in spaaaaaace, and use air and fuel in the atmosphere. This is good because it means you don't have to carry all the oxidiser you would need in a normal rocket because you take some from the atmosphere. In effect, it's a combined jet-engine and rocket.

Now, because it's like a jet-engine, I assumed it worked like a jet engine, with it sucking in air and burning it with atomised liquid fuel. Not so! In fact, it works like a rocket all the way up. Some rockets use what's called "Cryogenic Fuel," which is usually liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen. In the SABRE, it uses the Cryogenic hydrogen as a fuel at all times, but the only way to use cryo-hydrogen effectively is with cryo-oxygen. So, rather than burning it with gaseous air, a super-complicated engine precooler rapidly condenses the air as it enters the engine, and voila! Liquid oxygen for your own personal use. When the air gets too thin, it switches over to using it's internal supplies of O2, but as far as the engine can tell very little actually changes.

Like I said, pretty weird, right?

So cool it turns oxygen to a liquid within feet of a burning rocket engine.

If so, then I'm also a bad person.

It's also interesting; I'm struggling to work out what could do that. One of my friends is specialising in bioengineering and said that some of the cutting edge prosthetics are made of titanium foams so the bone can grow into the gaps and hold onto it better, but I'm pretty sure there's no way there'd be enough air in un-en-boned bubbles to cause significant damage, let alone explode.

TIL that my mouse wheel pushes to the left and right. Never noticed. It doesn't do anything (probably because those messages are not connected to anything) but they could be. I'll have to look into that.

But this leads to a pet peeve. When I write software (or make things), I want people to know how it works, so that they can get maximum use out of it. So, I write instructions, and hovertext hints, and the like. But pretty much all the feedback I get from this has been to remove all instructions because people like to discover things like this. But that means that many, perhaps most, people never get to use the neat features I've built in. As a consequence, the feedback is "it doesn't do anything".

Why do people want to be ignorant?

I don't think hovertext would bother anyone, unless it's very long and hides too much of the interface. Do you have any popups they need to approve, or messages that take a few seconds to disappear? Also you could just add a "show hints" button that toggles all of this on or off, with default being on.
