  1. Phew, that was a long read.... for me. He's got a lot to hide, it seems.
  2. This is the kind of stuff that I was alluding to earlier. Hot off the AP press: E2A Swansont's made a thread about it here: [
  3. Right. I think this is likely going to be something to do with the vehicle lights causing internal reflections in the lens of the camera and feeding back onto the sensor. Good cameras have multi-coated surfaces on all its lenses to prevent this.. Cover your lights up to confirm it or not.
  4. From my limited knowledge, the only hope now is that the Dems tie up the Senate and House in November and vote for 11 SC justices. Is that correct? Also, if Trump loses, wouldn't lots of delayed litigation head Trump's way and distract things?
  5. I don't think they are numbers. I think they are just lighting/reflection artefacts. Seeing numbers is pareidolia in action, I think. It's highly unlikely you would get the effect on both mirrors but there you go.
  6. Every person is their own reference for neutrality.
  7. Yes, genetics would seem to be the obvious route.
  8. If the handedness of the glucose molecule they use/produce was different to that on Earth, that would confirm a different origin.
  9. How about forgetting about the exising pipe, except the two ends you cut, and fitting in a new section? Thew pipe sounds like it's perishing anyway, so you might as well leave it.
  10. Acetone is available easily enough. Will take a day according to this:: https://www.theplasticshop.co.uk/plastic_technical_data_sheets/perspex_chemical_resistance_guide.pdf It's very volatile , make sure ventilation is adequate.
  11. The chlorine itself is of little consequence, it is what it is masking, namely unhygenic practices, that is our issue.
  12. The salmonella is in the guts. If they are eviscerasted in an approved, aseptic manner, chlorinating is unnecessary. The need to chlorinate is a symptom of poor handling practices. The only areas that smell of chlorine in a British factory are the exposed work surfaces and floors when they are wiped down.
  13. Here's some layman background on HDCP: https://www.howtogeek.com/208917/htg-explains-how-hdcp-breaks-your-hdtv-and-how-to-fix-it/
  14. Take chlorine-washing chicken: the EU's problem with that is it can tempt poultry workers to be sloppy in their methods, who may act that way on the basis that any pathogens are going to be killed by the chlorine-washing.. If they had good aseptic-handling protocols, washing wouldn't be needed. The trouble is that's too expensive for US producers. It boils down to individual country's expectations ...and sometimes never the twain can meet. As a typical American, think of their perceived British attitude towards their teeth. That's how we feel about your chicken.
  15. Scientific models describe behaviour, not ontology, which is an area of philosophy. You are barking up the wrong tree.
  16. Is there no constitutional limit on the number of justices?
  17. I should keep your doctor informed of persistent changes so that they can make any necessary adjustments to your treatment or mitigate side effects with other treatments. Everybody's situation, even with the same problems, is unique and trhere's no way, even qualified specialists, could give you meaningful advice online.
  18. The smelly culprit is sulphur-based and that, apparently, forms an acid with water, which reacts with some component in the metal bar. My guess is iron into its sulphate.
  19. With any luck, with a new administration, we'll find out just how much they tried to interfere with those career admins that supplied information based on objectivity.
  20. The increasingly negative attitude to vaccines in general is more evidence of a short societal memory that can only compound the problem.
