    TIL that trying to play as the Maori on a Terra map in Civ VI causes a CTD every time on startup. No ultimate cheese playthrough :cry:

    The Aye-aye has 6 fingers, sort of.

    This MRI image shows the various structures of the aye-aye’s hand. The pseudo-thumb is made up of the radial sesamoid bone, in red, and its cartilaginous extension called the prepollex, in pink. It’s controlled by the adductor pollicis longus, in purple, and two other muscles shown in light and dark green. Other tendons and muscles are shown in light blue.

    Instead of trashing your heath care system, out of ignorance, no doubt, i would ask why aren't you covered for the more expensive option? Who would be covered for the more expensive option?

    Don't be so hasty to salute, soldier.
    All I had to do was to put together stuff I wrote a few years before.
    I did that from my lounge room, stoned most of the time, and while my (sober) partner and I watched 200 episodes of Star Gate in a row.

    I did that one time while abusing stimulants to get a lot of work done. It wasn't until 5 or 6 hours in that I realized that the repeat setting was on and I had been watching the first episode over and over. SG1 is a hell of a drug.

    SG1 and Atlantis were great back then. I couldn't stomach SG Universe.
    I haven't abused stims, alcohol or opiates for almost 35 years. (IMO it's not appropriate once you have a kid.)
    Down here in the Socialist Workers Paradise, I get government-funded amphetamines very cheap, using next-to-free medical services. Whatta country! :)

    a woman and her family were at a camera obscura tourist attraction which took an infra red shot of them. It showed an unusually bright spot over her left breast. She googled it and found out doctors can use infra red when looking for cancer, a doctor confirmed very early stage breast cancer.

    Well, if you are drinking this you don't want to drop an ice cube made from the local mudwater into it.

    Large wooden barrels used to age sherry. In this case subsequently used to age Scotch.

    I'd rather not imagine that actually.

    If you're rich enough to buy "luxury" ice cubes, you can probably afford to do it more than once.

    There are more cameras in the world than people.
