That would be amazing but I can’t imagine the owners of The Peanuts allowing that

I don’t have time to watch the whole thing right now, but I’m pretty sure the blades went flying on the first one.

I don’t really know if ARM adds benefits I’d really notice as an end user, but it’ll be interesting to see if this really goes through and upends the dominant architecture we’ve seen for really 40+ years.

It only took one shareholder to sue and invalidate his last compensation package. I suspect that same shareholder or a few others are game to try it again, especially if this time it’s coming from a more direct threat to the company and those shares’ value.

There are a couple Data is Beautiful communities, !dataisbeautiful and !dataisbeautiful that could be good fits for content like this, but of course it’s always fine for here, too.

Since England & Wales are highlighted I’m guessing this chart was made by a news outlet from England or Wales?

I found these links that look useful from the St. Louis Fed and Census Bureau that look interesting; the Census in particular looks like they offer home construction data going back to the 1950s in Excel format. That could be interesting to play with.

I do seem to remember articles about how many new homes have been built since especially the ’90s as interest rates came down, and how much larger houses started getting. Also anecdotally, apart from your example of finishing basements, I’ve noticed more and more older homes on desirable property being torn down and larger homes being built in their place, some of the old homes being as new as the 1980s and rarely even newer.

That’s a good idea. A salsa con queso dip can actually be good on a hot dog, but I don’t think olives would go with it. Maybe a one-or-the-other situation.

Ah, I didn’t quite understand from the first picture. I thought this was like one of those loafs I’ve seen in Quebec where they slice the bread the long way.

This was nowhere near the only deadly airship disaster, nor was it the last, but that’s not really what ended airship travel. With the advances in airplanes by the end of World War II, lighter-than-air ships just couldn’t compete. Even postwar piston aircraft were cruising at more than 3 times the speed of most airships with range to make nonstop transatlantic crossings, and once the jet age really started to take hold in the ’50s it was all over. I mean, by the ’60s multiple countries had started supersonic passenger aircraft programs. Not a lot of success there, but still there were nowhere near enough customers to support commercial service on airships when faster, cheaper options existed.

Hindenburg only carried 70 passengers at its largest configuration, and it could only carry that many because they were forced to use hydrogen as the lifting gas instead of helium because of American export restrictions. Hydrogen carries more but is significantly more dangerous, and likely would not be used in any modern aircraft because of safety reasons. Perhaps modern advances in lighter materials and other weight saving methods could help, but even 100 paying passengers doesn’t seem commercially viable.

I remember Pawn Stars once had someone bring in a gas mask designed for infants from that same era, and after authenticating it Rick found the concept and need for something like that so horrific that he didn’t even make an offer.

This got me thinking about it and realizing it’s kind of odd that Civilization lets you build atomic weapons but not chemical or biological weapons. Maybe it’s in Civ 4 or Civ 6; I haven’t really played either of those.

I absolutely love milkshakes. I just wish they loved me more.

Is this what god feels like?

Lactase enzyme tablets are relatively cheap and easy to carry at least a few around at all times

That’s a good point since I think the lactose intolerance becomes an issue in the intestines. The person you’re replying to might want to consult with a doctor.

Given that reel to reel tape recording of television didn’t begin until the 1950s I’m going to say they didn’t. The only way they recorded back then was pointing a film camera at the TV, but this couldn’t really be used for rebroadcast, so I’m guessing a lot of these early TV broadcasts weren’t recorded.

I wonder when this was in relation to the opening of the wall?

The host Petra was in the green room on Tuesday’s semifinal and showed that among the food options they had baby lasagna and lasagna without babies for the vegetarians.

I remember an old post about someone seeing a neighbor doing that, I think in Brooklyn or someplace like that.

Michigan Supreme Court Says Fourth Amendment Doesn’t Apply To Government Drone Use In Civil Cases (www.techdirt.com)

Bit of a weird one here. So, there’s the assumption made by all cops and most courts that any area visible to passersby does not have an expectation of privacy. That means front yards, open garages, etc. Courts and cops have mostly agreed this expectation of privacy does not suddenly appear no matter how long the government...

I read the article but not the court brief, but from the circumstances of the case I think the town also could’ve used some relatively not expensive commercial satellite images to show that the defendants had been expanding their junkyard in violation of ordinances and previous court agreements. I would be shocked if a court said satellite photos were not allowed, and it seems like at some level aircraft observation would be allowed. I’m not a lawyer, so I’m curious if the police flights like you mention need a warrant before they go looking for a grow operation or whatever. Not going to look that up right now, but maybe later.

The difference being that Sony actually has teams of lawyers who specialize in copyright violations, including unauthorized sampling. If the AI companies are caught using Sony material this won’t go nearly as easily for them as stealing some random blogger’s writings or a small artist’s images.

Does IRC still exist? I remember laughing when I first saw Slack and its early competitors because people were excited about it and when I finally used it I realized it was basically just IRC with a nicer interface. I’m assuming these offer improvements like encryption?

Yeah, now there is, but I don’t think a lot of those features were in when I first used it over a decade ago. It became a lot more useful over the years.
