Did The Subjects In The Russian Sleep Experiement Develop Morvan's Syndrome?


The Russian Sleep Experiment is a creepypasta (copy/pasted creepy short story or anicdote). Many people have questioned whether it's just a story, or if it actually happened. The subjects in the story successfully stayed awake for 15 days which exceeds the world record of 11 days set in 1965 (excluding those with Morvan's syndrom).

Science Proves


"Science proves!"...lemme stop you right there. Science doesn't PROVE anything. Research yields data, and from that data we can draw reasonable conclusions

Christopher Robin Review


Christopher Robin has a great premise, and a worthy message. However the implemenation re-imagines the characters somewhat compared to past Disney films in both a physical sense, and in terms of their personalities.

Does the Dell Precision T5500 support 144GB of RAM?


According to the manual the Dell Precision T5500 supports a maximum of 72GB of RAM, but this machine was released before 16GB dimms existed. The 72GB max is from using nine 8GB dimms. The manual does hint, in a statement about dimm height, that 16GB dimms may work in the system, when released. This raises the question, if two CPUs are installed and they support 144GB of RAM, would this machine work with greater than 72GB of RAM? Could it be maxed out with nine 16GB dimms to 144GB of RAM?

Suspiciously Positive Reviews For Pokemon Detective Pikachu On IMDB


Today I perused the IMDB entry for Pokemon Detective Pikachu. Don't ask me how I ended up there. The first review displayed was by "jakefellows", and it gave the movie 10 out of 10 stars. This seems fishy to me given how much criticism the movie has been getting online.

Riker Sits Weird


William Riker is a character on Star Trek The Next Generation. Apparently he sits weird, and it's been named the "Riker Chair Maneuver". I never noticed it while watching the series, but

Snakes In Prince George


In my entire life I've only ever seen three snakes in my home town of Prince George. The first time was a young boy. I found a garter snake in the yard. I was astonished, because I didn't think we had snakes this far north. The only reason I recognized it as a garter snake (assuming I identified it correctly :P) was because I had seen large packs of them before while traveling.

Nut Free Schools


I was shopping at Walmart today, and this woman and her kids grabbed some granola bars off an end. As they were putting them into the basket the mom says, "These will be great snacks for the afternoon, but not for taking to school, okay?"

Android Apps Update Way Too Often


One thing I've noticed about Android is that you get updates for a handful of apps each day. I like seeing there is active development on the apps I'm using, but I can't see the need for such frequent updates. I would even consider it somewhat inappropriate for this type of system, because the majority of users will be automatically updated over low-capped data sources (eg: cellular data).

I Dislike Google Tracking My Third-party Purchases


https://myaccount.google.com/payments-and-subscriptions is a record of everything you buy both through Google services (such as apps you've purchased on Google Play), and purchases outside of Google. It sources external purchase information from your Gmail emails and Google assistant interactions.

The Way Art Works


The way art works is you create a whole bunch of embarrassing crap, but in doing so you slowly earn the skills to make something good.

Which Audio Format To Use


Use FLAC for lossless archival. It's got reasonable device support. It's one of the most widely supported lossless formats.
