Point of order. The comparison to March numbers I think is a poor one, and one I’ve had to explain to numerous people. The R0 in March was about 3, it’s now around 1. Which meant every person was infecting 3 more on average. And the rate of growth of growth. (So the delta of the log of the growth rate), was about 40% Read more

But the weird thing is that it’s the only sport of the four that does not have uniform field dimensions, which means that in theory, you could construct a team to play at your specific stadium. Don’t like HRs? Take the fences out and get a bunch of slap hitting speedsters. Have a short right field? Hire a bunch of Read more

Baseball also has the whole thing where each field is different. I would have expected that to be a bigger factor.

“Don’t do it by volume. Percentage-wise, [dough should be] around 65 percent water. Flour is your 100-percent ingredient. 1000 g flour, 650 g water.” Read more

Also, as astronomer Kelly Lepo from McGill pointed out to me, I left out another important fact—the days are longer when the axis is tilted to the sun, more time for the Earth to receive the energy from the rays and get hotter. Read more

When someomne says, “You have great taste. Your style really suits you.” Isn’t the “I” implied? They’re really saying, “I think you have great taste. I think your style really suits you.”

I leave my family in limbo because otherwise they keep requesting.

You know cherry pits contain amygdalin, which turns into cyanide, right? One or two ground cherry pits gives you enough cyanide to take you down. Happy eating!

I’m going to argue that you’d get greater results having a culture that values and incentivizes healthy eating and exercise habits, instead of telling people to ignore basically every unhealthy message they are bombarded with on a regular basis. Read more

Is it really though? That’s like saying it’s a little puzzling that Macy’s is offering a sale the day after Christmas. There are currently 12 teams left whose fan bases are motivated to pay full price for team apparel. Amazon is trying to drive up interest in all the other college sports consumers who may not be all Read more

Ending up at a place in life where you have the knowledge of what the right place and time is, or having the opportunity to network with someone besides the cashier at Starbucks and your landlord - that is luck in and of itself. Just to try and subtract out the ‘who your parents are’ part - let’s pretend you are a HS Read more

Agree on the machine park issue but I’d take a slow cooker over a rice cooker. I can cook rice in 20 minutes while awake, but I can melt an elk shank while I sleep with a slow cooker.

Take a nail, make several holes in the rim of the can where the lid fits. The excess paint will drain back into the can, and you won’t even need the rag.

I suspect this may be concerned with the EU’s proposed confiscation of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it isn’t the small green pieces of paper that are unhappy with this.

Not sure where you’re getting your information, but it’s not accurate. Genetics plays a huge part in how many muscle fibers someone has (for example), and metabolic rate, and many other factors (including your general muscular/skeletal build). Your genes also determine how well your thyroid functions, as well as your Read more
