Could I drag/roll/maneuver a 40-pound box up 4 flights of stairs without injuring myself?

40? Sure. Better if it has handles or something

I sometimes buy 50lb bags of flour and of course carry my children. At this point, though, the children want to be carried so they help support. the squirmy didn't wanna or deeply sleeping stage was no fun. But I think Micah has a point. Can you take some things out of it and make 2 trips? Also those thick straps they use to lift refrigerators? If you can somehow transfer the weight to your shoulders and hips it will not be such a big deal

I've never been able to figure out the purpose of this weird, flat, half-underground building, adjacent to the Ukrainian Catholic church a few blocks away.

Comment

It's got multiple, hardcore chimney-type structures. Ovens for communion wafers? Crematorium? Heated underground baptismal fonts? And the ziggurat-esque stairs at the front seem unnecessary. Why would you need to walk around on the roof so much?

^^^ It's funny how many episodes of Midsomer Murders mention church roof fundraising drives.

How a 'NULL' License Plate Landed One Hacker in Ticket Hell "Security researcher Joseph Tartaro thought NULL would make a fun license plate. He's never been more wrong." (by Brian Barrett) https://www.wired.com/story/null-license-plate-landed-one-hacker-ticket-hell/?verso=true

Comment

"Instead, by paying that $35 ticket, it appears that a database somewhere now associated NULL with his personal information. Which means that any time a traffic cop forgot to fill in the license plate number on a citation, the fine automatically got sent to Joseph Tartaro."

It was good. I got the "original qashta" flavor, which had pistachios and was vaguely floral. It definitely wasn't as stretchy or chewy as reviews have made it sound. I'm curious if they've changed the texture since they opened, to account for local tastes.

Also, does "Have I Been Pwned" just notify you at random times now? Like, this breach is from May.

Delayed reaction, I suspect; HIBP often can't get hold of the breach file until some time after the actual breach has happened.

Beto's short video at the airport about the El Paso shooting was really moving. In itself, it was moving, but even more so because it illustrated so clearly what we do NOT have. https://twitter.com/BetoORourke/status/1157766674725998592

Systematic review of publication bias in studies on publication bias "Publication bias is a well known phenomenon in clinical literature, in which positive results have a better chance of being published, are published earlier, and are published in journals with higher impact factors. Conclusions exclusively based on published studies, therefore, can be misleading...We investigated whether there is preferential publication of positive papers on publication bias." https://www.bmj.com/content/331/7514/433

I was looking through my Wales pics and realized I'd forgotten to share something EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that I learned. This? Is a "ha-ha". No joke: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ha-ha

they're exciting to encounter on a bike or with a stroller if you're not paying attention.

I thought the whole point of a ha-ha was that you didn't have to fence it.

 ‎· LibSkrat 2
Comment

@libskrat I assume the fencing is related to either the "personal injury" or "preventive repairs" section of the Wikipedia article :)

 ‎· Meg Vmeg 3
Comment

Also, what's funniest to me, is that we didn't know what a ha-ha was, we just saw it marked on the map, so we were wandering around for ages, trying to find it, not knowing that you're not supposed to be able to see it.

I find it humorous that the Wikihow page for pronouncing Welsh place names claims that it's easy to pronounce Welsh because Welsh is a phonetic language.

Now it's gotten so where I can do it, but it takes a few minutes of practice each time to remember how to do it, so that will come in handy never.

@rudenko and I once had our own & very personal Battle of Hastings when we tried to enjoy our fish & chips down on the beach there and not at the crowded seaside eateries.
