    This reminds me of a couple years ago, I ended up in intimate activities with a friend of mine who was then 19 and I was 25. I didn't even think of the age until after the fact, but then she is... a lot more experienced in such matters than I am. We became involved again a year later and she talked for a while about her exploits with a 40 year old.

    I mean, it's a thing.

    No one really enforces it with adults. We just think it's weird, recommend against it, and have seen how many times it's ended badly. :dunno:

    I am not quite sure what you mean, but I posted this in the AI thread last year:

    Now, I mean providing an animation of the morphing from 1 to 2 :)

    Got me wondering - whenever somebody near house uses ICE chainsaw or grass cutter, TV signal (over-land, from tower far away, any other time strong and solid) gets pretty rough. What process exactly from engine is interracting with signal?

    Electro-magnetic interference can happen when one electrically driven piece of equipment is generating a signal which overlaps with communication broadcast signals.

    Oh, that could be it. I forgot that ICE engine need spark and it is generated by magneto/electrical generator. Thank you (both).

    Does anybody know what's been happening to the formerly prolific Geekologie? They used to have a lot of updates a week and recently they've been slowing down and they haven't had a new post since August.

    Tony Clifton was a character created by the late Andy Kaufman.

    My question is.. Who played Tony Clifton after Andy died? In the movie "Man on the Moon" you can see Tony show up after Andy dies. Andy's partner in crime (the guy who sometimes played Clifton when Andy was around) is shown in the audience. So.. who was playing Tony if it wasn't him?

    Similar question about the documentary made about this movie, "Jim & Andy". At one point Tony Clifton shows up to the Playboy mansion. Everybody thinks it's Jim Carrey, but then Jim Carrey shows up at the party too. Who was playing Tony Clifton at the party if it wasn't Carrey? Security escorted the "fake" Clifton out when Carrey showed up

    When I buy peaches, they end up for me in 2 states: They're either hard as an apple and close to not edible, but they never ripen, they nearly always turn moldy. What could I be doing wrong? (I mean... I'm not doing anything...)

    I think it depends if they were harvested early or late.

    My first thought is moisture. Are they well ventilated? If they are stored in plastic and they get condensation in contact with the skin the will go mouldy. The other thing is temperature, in the UK it rarely gets too warm for them, but sometimes I put them in the fridge if they are ripening too fast.

    I get lots of peaches from the supermarket, and sometimes a quite a few of a batch go mouldy before they go off, but usually it will only be one or two.

    I do also have I wild theory, but have very little evidence for it. I think if you get bigger ones they are more likely to have been harvested ripe and so less likely to go off before getting ripe. Most packs in the supermarket are packs of 4, under 500g. My supermarket also sells a "family pack", min. 6 fruit under 1kg. The latter tend to be nicer and go off before going ripe as they are not restricted by the supermarket rule of < 125g/fruit so can be picked later.

    Oh, and of course the main thing is to get them in season so they have not had to be shipped around the world.

    The ones I just got were locally grown, without any plastic packaging. They just sat in my bowl with the other fruit (I know that ripening bananas will emit ethylene, which accelerates the ripening process in other fruits...so... maybe?), and 2 got moldy, one showed signs of the skin getting...er.. wrinkled, so I tried to eat it, but it was still too hard. And the same has now happened multiple times.
    -> so, can't be the packaging, and also not the moisture :think:.

    Buy local peaches in season and most problems go away.

    If they are local to Europe this time of the year they have been stored somewhere. I believe there is some tech to keep them from going off for ages (N2?) and it would not surprise me if that is not good for them.
