The Stanford Prison Experiment was massively influential. We just learned it was a fraud. "The most famous psychological studies are often wrong, fraudulent, or outdated. Textbooks need to catch up." https://www.vox.com/2018/6/13/17449118/stanford-prison-experi...

"This makes five outlaws who have been caught at one of the Hong Kong pop star’s shows this year, resulting in the “God of Songs” being given a new nickname, the “Fugitive Trapper.” ‎· ronin

Apparently fireworks are legal in NJ now? Just saw this @ local Target. https://t.co/wByURwlQcF .

Apparently the state legalized some types of fireworks: http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2017/06/breaking_christi... (A bill Christie signed a few days before the beach closure that will live in infamy.) ‎· John B.
Comment
Those kinds of fireworks have pretty much always been legal here in WV, but, a year or 2 ago, they went ahead and legalized all fireworks, so, now we don't have to drive up to PA to buy the professional-style ones (it used to be that people from out-of-state could legally buy the professional fireworks here in WV, but those of us that lived in WV had to drive to another state to buy them - both WV and PA made their out-of-state purchasers sign paperwork saying that they'd have the fireworks transported back out of that state within 24 hours - it was weird). ‎· Mr. Noodle

Ugh, first time getting shafted by a Kickstarter project. Unfortunately not an insignificant sum either. :\ .

Just looked up my records, I’ve had this SSD since 2011. Guess I can’t complain too much then. =\ Obviously way past warranty. .

I have a 8G and 502 MB Quantum Fireball IDE drives that still work. Not only did they outlive their warranties, they outlasted Quantum, Maxtor, and could possibly outlive Seagate. ‎· April ☕ ‎· 3

But thanks to the power of the Internet I discovered I can get a 2x capacity replacement that’s only 3.5x less than the original. Progress! .
Avatar for ronin
Oh wait, not the exact same drive. The new one gives me 10GB more. =p .
Avatar for ronin
At least a new replacement of the exact same drive is now 4.5x less than it was 7 years ago. =p .

Ah, nvm, the entire SSD just up and died. .

Wait a minute, there’s a Farm Simulator game(?) that has enough of a community that Logitech actually built gear specifically for? That’s awesome. https://t.co/uMpWBaxaZh .

Oh, man, I vaguely remember reading about this. I know that the tractor simulation stuff is way more popular than people thought it would be. Also, trucking and bus simulators, if I remember correctly. ‎· Jennifer D.

WTH is up w/all the spitting in pro #baseball? .

They all (used to, at least) chew tobacco. I spit all the time, myself, because, when I wrestled in middle/high school, everyone else chewed tobacco, so I just picked up the habit of spitting like they did. ‎· Mr. Noodle

Pouring granulated sugar on wounds 'can heal them faster than antibiotics' "A study from Wolverhampton University, found granulated sugar poured directly into bed sores and even amputations promotes healing when antibiotics and other treatments have failed." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2278942/Pouring-gra...

Hmmm. Daily Mail story. Still, it is true that high sugar retards a lot of different bacteria and fungi. (Although there is a fungus that will eventually grow in maple syrup if it's on the shelf long enough...) ‎· Spidra Webster
