  1. Sorry Koti, and Sensei, have been away a while. Very interesting and unfortunate view. Most polish people are appalled by such extremists as I'm sure Koti is as well. In my humble opinion from this point, the young educated people just need to vote in bigger number for the right government. I really love that country and I have traveled to most EU countries and few other and it's hands down my favorite. I dream to return there in my later days. Sorry for the subjective rant.
  2. Last day of My Polish Job today. So many days spent on the science forum from this job. I really encourage anyone who has not seen Poland first hand to visit and get to know the people and see the country. I will be back in my later years.

      Best wishes for the future Silvestru. May you find a den just as comfortable :D

      @Silvestru,Good luck with the fish & chips - bon appetit! Traitor.

  3. Fair point, we should report members or posts that become unprofessional and admins will review. I never had a real problem with threads exceeding their lifetime. I just feel bad when I see someone well-intentioned wasting time on someone who is not open for a discussion and prefers preaching.
  4. I totally agree but let's be honest. I can give you actual examples if you want where members are very obtuse and stubborn and refuse to provide any data, the back and forth's go on for 6 pages then the OP goes overboard, starts insulting members participating in the thread and only then the thread gets closed. Even for Speculations you are requested to provide evidence for your claims.
  5. Hello forum, Recently I have been reading more and more threads of people trying to disprove well established science with their own pet theories. I totally understand engaging in a polite discussion and explaining why they are incorrect in their assumption but doing a ridiculous back and forth for 7 pages while the OP refuses to provide any model or evidence...in my view is a waste of time and it clogs this wonderful forum that I hold so dear. I know there have been backlashes from even veteran members about the closing of some threads but can't we have a forum rule that if you propose a new theory you have to provide some data, some maths, something, even if it turns out to be incorrect. If we would all agree on such a system I think the forum would be much cleaner and pleasurable to read. Rule: If you bring forward a new theory that (attempts to?) disproves or ads something new to mainstream science, you need to provide the evidence or calculation that lead you to this conclusion.
  6. Can you further detail this point? Where does conscience fit in with this kind of view?
  7. So I can escape article 13 haha. Jokes aside, me and my partner both found good jobs there so we will give it a try. I have been living in Poland for the last 6 years and it's great, really but I am still young and I figured my life plan is to focus on the financials for a few years and then have enough to retire peacefully. I would prefer to relax in my 40's and 50's and focus more on cubs. This went a bit off-topic from computer help haha.
  8. ...I doubt it..  Well Sadly, all these CSS HTML questions are for some projects at work. That's why I am not making too much public like print screens and stuff. This is my last month here as I decided to move to UK so I can promise you Sensei haha that I will not continue working on this in my new work. I love my colleagues here and that's why I am going the extra mile.
  9. Hello team, You guys helped me out lots before with share point stuff so I will have one last question. I have my share point site open on my monitor which is connected to my laptop. When I move my page to the monitor, the zoom goes to 150% and it's zoomed in. (image is not displaying as it should. When I move it back to my monitor it goes to 62%(not even the original 100%). I tried with the code below but it did not solve the issue. I am sure that my SharePoint site is at fault as I tried with other SharePoint sites (not made by me) in the same conditions and they would resize the text/image to perfectly fit the screen. Please let me know if you can help <style type="text/css"> body { width: 100%; height: 100%; } </style>

    I enjoy watching combat sports. I know it sounds anticlimactic but I think the more risk the more entertainment. A loss in curling is just a loss, a loss in a muay-thai match can mean end of you career. Actually a win can also mean that sometimes.
  11. Moving to UK in May/June. :( 
    Home of many important people: The queen, Freddy Mercury, StringJunky and DrP among others.

      I thought it was illegal to bring polar bears into the UK.
      ( or are you going to a zoo ? )

    3. peterwlocke


      ha ha cause it lost most of i ts land.

    4. Silvestru


      Haha Polar bears Illegal? Unfortunately in UK if it's all white, it's all right :(
      We will see :D will keep you updated 

  12. 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.
  13. Finally someone qualified proved beyond a doubt what we were all speculating. Next documentary is about anti-vaxxers I'm sure.
  14. Hello Sensei, Strange. Thank you both very much! This quoted option was the one that did it. You guys really helped me out.
  15. 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.
  16. 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; }
  17. 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!
  18. 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. :( 



  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Even in this sacred temple, can I NOT ESCAPE CLICK-BAIT?
  22. 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
  23. This has been kinda tried, read below: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_tether_missions Turn's out it's a really inefficient way to produce energy. PS: I just read about this today!
  24. 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.
  25. "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.
