Hot lemon water with honey, and keep your throat moist and nose clear with some mints.

Ok, so there's dark matter, and also all these clouds of baryons they couldn't see before.

The article went over my head a bit, does this mean that half the dark matter was actually just dim matter?

Does anyone know of an "antidote" for garlic? I ate some tonight by mistake.

Cut out FODMAPs, you are me 20 years ago and I want to save you some time and suffering. Dairy and gluten are likely candidates but also onions and garlic.

That's not a story. Now, "Plane with 2 deer aboard strikes 47 people", would be a story!

Annihilation (2018) - Teaser Trailer by Vektor_ in movies

Some are from the book, but the barrier was invisible and I don't remember flaming/glowing trees. I think it's a good sign, they are adapting it to the medium.

Paint is separate, but from your picture he probably has most of what he needs.

Help us Sorastro, you’re our only hope! by brewer01902 in minipainting

Zu Hilfe! zu Hilfe! sonst bin ich verloren, Der listigen Schlange zum Opfer erkoren. Barmherzige Götter! schon nahet sie sich; Ach rettet mich! ach schützet mich!

Good luck! As long as you have a day to paint them after they show up, you'll be fine. You can always paint in the base colours and use a quickshade or wash.

It was a beautiful song

But it ran too long

If you're gonna have a hit

You gotta make it fit

So they cut it down to 3:05

Matthew Vaughn thinks 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Star Wars' killed his 'Flash Gordon' reboot by BunyipPouch in movies

[–]tenormore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The argument is that adding spaceships to a sword and sorcery flick doesn't make it science fiction. If I edited "The Untouchables" so that the tommyguns fired plasma and the cars levitate instead of having tires, wouldn't it still be a gangster movie? Star Wars doesn't care about science, it just swaps it in for magic.

Really this is just the old Star Trek vs Star Wars trivial argument.

It's a story about a farmboy who gets a magic sword from a wizard so he can rescue the Princess from the Dark Lord's castle. It just happens to have spaceships and lasers instead of horses and crossbows.

And did you notice that the actor who voices Flash also played Lex in Smallville?

Why do you reject the trinity? by Noble_monkey in UUreddit

Leaving aside the divinity of Jesus, what is a holy ghost and why would it be worshipped separately from God?

New C Trains - thoughts? by Queltis6000 in Calgary

[–]tenormore 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't mind the interior so much, but the doors? Why do they open so slowly, and then you have to hold them open while people get off or they'll shut before anyone has a chance to get on!

Any reliable way to get into Warhammer old world stuff? by Masokist_ in Warhammer

[–]tenormore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look for deals on eBay, and also consider Kings of War which is pretty similar

What are virtual machines used for in an enterprise environment? by [deleted] in sysadmin

[–]tenormore 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Servers. Picture a Microsoft-heavy environment: at least 2 domain controllers, WSUS server, 2+ exchange servers, 2+ SQL and database servers, SCCM, SCOM, KMS, and we haven't even started on other business applications. Cheaper and more effective to use VMs on 2 physical servers than maintain more than a dozen separate boxes. Also useful for testing, development and virtual/remote desktops.

There is thermal transfer, where a roll of black ribbon is used. Often works in the same printers. More expensive, but more durable against rubbing or heat exposure.

TIL after Sitting Bull was released from prison, he joined the Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show making $50 per week for riding once around the arena. Quickly getting annoyed with the audience, he quit and returned to his people saying "I would rather die an Indian than live a white man." by Quiglius in todayilearned

Well, the Iroquois confederacy partly inspired the US founding fathers in designing their government, and men mostly wear trousers rather than tights, a fashion that was picked up from indigenous peoples by early explorers and fur traders. Also, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, tobacco. Some pieces of Indigenous culture have been so deeply absorbed we forget where they come from.
