Root beer, there are so many different flavors and variety. A lot of artisanal stuff out there as well!

Cream soda is the second choice

My old town had stop lights that were timed nearly perfectly if you went the speed limit. Only exception was when they were resetting from an emergency vehicle passing (or pedestrian).

I would wave my hand and mutter some Jedi stuff at it and it would change. People still gunned it from one light to get stopped at the next...

R3 is being fast tracked for late 2026, r2's aren't coming off the line yet but are slightly smaller, r3 is supposed to be midsize sub size and around 40k before incentives.

Yet another lawsuit they're queuing up for why Trump lost again.

I'm now considering "terminally ill leftist" as something not to be recovered from, not something that will cause your termination.

I am not terminal, nor ill in my political outlook and desire to see all of my fellow countrymen, And all people on earth, survive and thrive.

There was a really fun show I found.... Let me get the name.... "Joe and Katherine bargain holidays", where they"vacation" on a "budget", in the first (or second?) episode the go to an owl sanctuary, where they learn it's 3$ (pounds) to hold an owl, Joe is flabbergasted by this and announces that he's going to spend more money holding owls than on anything else in this episode, I think they started with 10 owls for 30 pounds, then asked to round it up to a dozen, then a bakers dozen. It actually looked like something I'd gladly spend money to do, and I would imagine it's a pretty good cause.

The series is posted to YouTube, and if you haven't seen "task master" I cannot recommend it highly enough. Joe and Katherine are on season 2. Save season 7 until you've seen enough of it to be comfortable with what's going on, because it's an amazing season (as they all are) but the cast is the least restrained in their antics.

I would hold 5 owls.

Are the non-aligned a "party"that would rather not be named (on the right wing of things) or are they actually non aligned and would be better represented as being in the middle of this chart?

You don't look at the hole obsessively every time you unload the tray?

Something like this happening haunts me. Spme fibres are so expensive these days.

I don't know how I got this job, sure it doesn't pay the best in the field, and you need lots of specialized training, and with that training you can go to much more prestigious work, but it pays enough. I don't know why the previous person to do it left (the commute was too much for her, but I would've moved closer if I was her). She trained me very briefly because I knew most of the ins and outs already, she told me the boss had been in and out of remission with bone cancer, but the last flair up was taken care of years ago.

It's been 7 years since he was first diagnosed, and he's had 2 replacements, they won't do a third. He doesn't want to try the experimental treatments because he'd rather enjoy the time he has.

I've worked for him for 3 years and I feel so greedy wanting to scream at him to try every avenue available. He has 3 amazing kids, a wife and in-laws who live him, he loves coming into work, he just finished renovating his forever home. And I don't want a different boss. I need more time with my mentor, my friend, the best boss I've ever had.

I just learned this morning, and it's really raw, I need to get it off my chest, I don't want to steal time from his family, but I want to take from him as much as I can. He's a genius in the field, the person he's trying to get to replace him is remarkable younger guy, but he's my age, he doesn't have the life experience that I've found myself looking to my boss for.

Fuck cancer.

Thanks off my chest. Hug your loved ones. Tell your dog they're good, scratch your cat. Enjoy the moments of extra nice weather.

My understanding is the researcher took Gaia probe information and looked at "wide binary stars" (not sure what defines wide, but there must be a ton of them), within 650 light years of earth. They found the ones that accelerate the least (relative to each other? Rotationally?) are, and this is where I get confused, moving more efficiently around each other than their faster counterparts?

This discrepancy is postulated to be due observations of the stars acting in different physics models based how much they're accelerating relative to each other?

If this is correct (and the researcher is very transparent with their methods and using public data) would this up-end our models as much as I think it would? There's probably a lot of things interacting with other things at very low relative acceptable throughout the universe. Or is this just highlighting a truth we already knew, that there's a difference between the quantum and relative universes that we're now able to roughly put a scale to?

I've added to my questions since lemmy has been down, what in the world does this paragraph mean? "Also, unlike other studies Chae calibrated the occurrence rate of hidden nested inner binaries at a benchmark acceleration."

While doing some you tubing about this (thanks lemmy.world down time) I discovered Sabine hossenfelder, who I think is becoming one of my favorite science communicators I recommend anyone wondering about anything science to check her out https://youtube.com/@SabineHossenfelder

I'm entirely new to sync, I feel like this will be common knowledge, but I went to expand a comment thread, it said "1/2 comments added" and the "view more (2)" button disappeared, it loaded 1 comment, but I'd be interested to see what that other comment was.

Thanks Lemmy-syncers

More info, just updated the app and the first thread I was trying to read showed both comments, but the second thread gave the same response, I was leaning towards "it's not showing deleted by creator" except it loaded 2/2 for one of the previous 1/2 threads.

Quite a fun game, and the price has never been better, I'm not sure how long it'll be free so grab it while your can. The "endless" universe games, and their spice, have never really caught on with me, but this one was very easy to pick up and play, especially with the heavy+medic+pyro team from the TF2 update.

Don't let this one go past you!

Alright guys! I’m putting up 3 classic console games in three different threads with three different win conditions. All 3 winners will be selected around the same time Saturday, notified in thread and pm’d the key.

3rd entry condition is going to be how many "perfect" completion games do I have in my library? (Hint for constraint purposes, it's less than 50). First entry of each number has that number, duplicates don't get duplicate prizes.

Good luck everyone! Results posted in 45 hours!

To enter this competition I'd like you to guess how many hours my wife's most played steam game has on it (it's going to be somewhere between 500 and 2000 hours, what is the answer? I don't know yet!)

Please comment on this thread to be eligible for this awesome game. If you're into zachtronics this is very much in line with space chem, if you have no idea what I'm talking about this game is a great intro to a 1 of a kind genre. Drawing ends Wednesday after my d&d session (10pm PST)

I hate to see this community existing without a giveaway going, so the next one is monster sanctuary.

This game is one of my favorite melting pots of genres, a platforming, party building, metroidvania, Pokemon style RPG with seasonal ladder competitions.

I have a spare key from a humble bundle that is going to be used by one of you! Add yourself to the comment thread below to be entered. Winner selected at random in 34 hours

Edit, next game will be posted to this subreddit within 24 hours. Stay tuned!
