good morning, I got an easter care package from my family back in Canada, check out its customs declaration label [cw food]
@ashfurrow I wish I could change his mind, but I really can't think of a valid argument at the moment. Give me a millennium or two, I might come up with something.
@ashfurrow Hang on a minute! I refuse to take morality lessons from an omnipotent, smarmy arsehole that put Tasha Yar in a blast freezer.
@ashfurrow first thing coming to my mind when seeing that pic preview in my timeline (and before seeing it full-size or reading your text): Abbey Road… Just missing those 4 dudes…
@ashfurrow Thank goodness Brian Wilson didn't have that problem or The Beach Boys might not have such a rich back-catalogue.
@ashfurrow Maybe smaller has a higher pitch and that is easier to hear or more attention-grabbing, compared with the others?
@ashfurrow I worked at a fab plant many years ago and the ovens were entire rooms where you slide long racks of boards into the bake the epoxy mask after the screen room put it on. Wall mounted oven thermostat outside the doors. When they opened those doors the heat just rolled out.
@ashfurrow hey, someone at least thought to label the small box. I definitely have one in my house that is unlabled
@ashfurrow Try this one:
Base 6 is the best counting base, so the superior approach would be to create a new set of units based on the same principles as the metric system, but optimised for heximal, and then to use those.
@OTheB seems like base6 is further from what humans use than base10, but to each their own I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@ashfurrow Can't actually think of one reason nor a single instance where or why fahrenheit would be better.
@ashfurrow It's not even a good argument. You can't feel a couple degrees F but you probably can feel a couple degrees C.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
