In a groundbreaking endeavor, scientists at the University of Rochester have successfully transferred a longevity gene from naked mole rats to mice, leading to enhanced health.

Did you enjoy BOTW?

TOTK performance on switch is not bad at all. I don't know where what perception came from. I haven't experienced any low frame rate issues after 100 hours.

People with bad sense of direction, can you enjoy open world games?

I have always liked open world games as a concept, but I have a very bad sense of direction. So whenever I play open world games I keep getting lost and frustrated. Eventually getting bored and dropping the game. I am curious how other people with bad sense of direction cope with this problem.

I have a bad sense of direction IRL but an excellent sense of direction in games. I don't think it necessarily transfers. I love open world games.

Bloom is when the coffee starts bubbling / frothing to release CO2, after you pour over it.

I agree, it's been pretty bad for a few years now at least.

Anything that challenges the status quo is inevitably going to make some people uncomfortable.

Agree to disagree. I don't think discussing indigenous rights on Canada day only achieves resentment, it also achieves raising awareness of the issues that indigenous people have historically and continue to face within Canada.

The IARC ruling [...] is intended to assess whether something is a potential hazard or not [... and] does not take into account how much of a product a person can safely consume.

From the article. ^^^

This is something people frequently overlook. A substance may be a "possible carcinogen" and also completely benign at levels any sane person would consume.

Bananas also contain carcinogenic material, but eating bananas is still very much a healthy thing to do. There's a reason banana equivalent dose is a concept, and "the dose makes the poison" is a common refrain in toxicology.

It sounds like YouTube is running experiments with small groups of users. You may not see anything until it's rolled out to everyone.

Bing on my home devices, Google on my work devices. Bing is good enough for my everyday searches, but Google is still much better at returning results that are relevant to my profession (data science).

Westworld season 1 is still one of the best seasons of science fiction television ever, in my opinion of course.

I tried watching Fringe but I felt that some of the dialogue / character interactions were insufferably bad, cheesy, cliche. Couldn't get into it.

postscarce,

Such a shame it was cancelled. I guess it was too weird for most people, but I loved it. It was playing with some interesting myths and metaphors.

Is His Dark Materials really science fiction?

I comment more, lurk less, but time wise probably about the same.

Elden Ring again after taking a break from it for a while. Exploring new areas, it's fun.

YSK: If you make popcorn in a pot on the stove, the oil to use is ghee.

Ghee, or Indian-style clarified butter, is butter that's been simmered and the milk solids (proteins and sugars) skimmed off. This leaves a clear yellow oil that doesn't smoke when it's heated and doesn't go rancid quickly, but has a distinct toasty butter flavor....

I prefer to airpop it in the microwave and then spritz EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) on afterwards. EVOO is delicious, and unrefined oils like EVOO retain more flavor if you don't heat them.

Nutritional yeast is also amazing. Gives it a cheesy flavor, and it's healthy to boot!

So instead of 'up' and 'down', you have a clickable emoji-menu like list of tags like 'interesting', 'boring', 'funny', 'WTF!?', 'Quality', 'Trash', 'Educational', 'CAT', etc...

I'm not sure about this. How do you decide which qualities users can rate? How do you ensure those qualities work across instances with different languages / cultures? You're also taking something which is extremely low effort and making it take significantly more time and effort. I think the simplicity, universality, and low effort of upvote / downvote are all strengths.
