    Have you ever been a troll online?

    I try to be sometimes but only when the level of a thread is so low that the only way you can answer is by being a Troll - one of the few species that can inhabit that deep cold and empty environment. The other species being a mod.

    "Behind the Curve" documentary

    Finally someone qualified proved beyond a doubt what we were all speculating. Next documentary is about anti-vaxxers I'm sure.

    Simple share point help

    Hello Sensei, Strange. Thank you both very much! This quoted option was the one that did it. You guys really helped me out.

    Simple share point help

    I didn't think of that! Truth be told I am a beginner at this. I suspect it's this item after inspecting but still not sure how to write the code.

    Simple share point help

    Hey Sensei. Thank you for your help but this refers specifically to the left hand side navigation bar. Your links would change the entire background. I am specifically looking for C# for SharePoint. For example the code that I pasted in OP has this effect: I need to change the background of just this left menu. I thought it would be something like: .menu-item-background { color: red; }

    Simple share point help

    Hello Forum, In share point I am able to change the font colour of the left menu using the below: Could you please help me change the actual background colour with a similar script? Thank you!
  8. Was bored and listening to a podcast with Brian Cox randomly and there was a question about online science related arguments. 
    I spat out what I had in my mouth and was listening carefully in hopes that he would mention swansont

    1. koti


      Wait, so he did mention him? I don't get it. I mean I get that Professor Cox made a really awkward statement (aka made an ass of himself) once and swansont was there to fix the awkwardness online but...did Cox mention him or not ?

    2. Silvestru


      Sorry to keep you in suspense koti I was out for a bit. No he did not mention swansont specifically unfortunately. :(

    You think you've got problems America...

    No offence to anyone on this thread but I believe racism and xenophobia played a bigger role in convincing people towards the Brexit idea than Russia.

    Do you have a repetitive job or lifestyle or stale relationship? You should consult with a professional but if we are discussing this topic, the solution is most likely change. Do you have a job where you are just crunching numbers all day and have no contact with other people? Maybe you have a very stressful job that requires you to sacrifice your personal life. After job, do you just go home and watch Netflix or play games every day and have the same routine? Are the relationships in life partner/friends very boring and meeting seeing them sometimes feel like an obligation more than something you look forward to? I guess these are a few common points that cause burnout depression. Maybe something is missing in their life. An ambition a dream, a goal. Where I live I feel like a main reason for depression in people is loneliness or being with the wrong person again for fear of loneliness.

    Even in this sacred temple, can I NOT ESCAPE CLICK-BAIT?
  12. Yes. Sorry I kind off implied that in my example. Also if someone would hypothetically use "a device to quite literally suck in or funnel the Earths magnetic field" it would probably have tragic consequences! #MarsRemembers
  13. This has been kinda tried, read below: Turn's out it's a really inefficient way to produce energy. PS: I just read about this today!

    Ideas to invest small amounts of money in

    Not really. Bought them for 25.95 without discount. In this moment they are 26.30. So very small gain even without discount. All I can say is that prices fluctuate But I am not here to talk about share plans haha. I wanted others to share their plans as well and hopefully to inspire each other. Oh Sensei I just realised the confusion. So the shares are bought on the first business day of the new year. Even though I was contributing throughout the year.

    Ideas to invest small amounts of money in

    "My father never went to college so it was really important I go to college. After college, I called him long distance and said, now what? My dad didn't know. When I got a job and turned twenty-five, long distance, I said, now what? My dad didn't know, so he said, get married. I'm a thirty-year-old boy, and I'm wondering if another woman is really the answer I need." Happy new year! Now 2018 is over and we reaped the benefits from the share scheme. I've also been painting and selling for some small profit this year so I would like to thank you all for the support and encourage you to save/invest for your future. So as my quote suggests: Now what? I was thinking to craft something and sell like I've been doing with paintings but I have no inspiration. I was thinking of buying a 3-D printer and make stuff and sell it. (like a vase and other home stuff). Opening a Pet Hotel. As you can see I am low on ideas. How have you guys been? Not wasting money on useless stuff I hope.
