    Facebook alternative?

    Yes, it's called real life... put the phone down, turn the computer off, and get out there and play.

    Taking Tesla private (Split from SpaceX Thread)

    Other mention elsewhere has been made of his use of other "recreational drugs" as well as the Ambien... so, like, what's he been smokin? Might explain these visions of colonizing space that he's been having, eh?

    Taking Tesla private (Split from SpaceX Thread)

    Yes, perceived. Problem with that is such perceptions are misleading (and in this case, totally wrong) and potentially harmful in so many ways. And now, in the news, he comments about losing it ... he's having a breakdown. I've got news for you, Elon, that's not going to fly with the SEC.

    Taking Tesla private (Split from SpaceX Thread)

    He is in trouble. Been saying this for a while... he's running out of money. And now, he's got the SEC on his tail. Go back and look at what he did with the Tesla car though... to reduce costs and speed up production; 50 less welds on the frame, AND, skipping the final brake test before rolling the car out the door. There's something wrong with this guy. I wouldn't sink a dime into any of his ventures.

    What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    Weird. When I clicked on that picture link, your entire post disappeared (see here). Something is wonky with Twitter embeds in these forums... been saying that for a while now, but nobody listens - which is ok, because I'm done giving a No video game nor tv movie will ever prepare you for the real thing. Small world. My nephew is stationed at Oak Harbor, lives near the southern end of what you've got hilighted.

    Making your own code

    Would you please explain this to Microsoft? I'd be eternally grateful.

    'de-breed-ing' I heard someone use it once in a past tense as 'de-bread'. I'd have to look that one up though to see if it's correct.

    If you're really that curious, you can Google 'stage 4 pressure ulcer' and read about it and view some image samples. I'll warn you however, the images are very graphic (open deep tissue wounds) and disturbing to some people. A pressure ulcer (also known as a pressure sore or bed sore) occurs when an area of skin sustains constant pressure for an extended period of time; The pressure robs the skin of needed blood circulation, which in time causes the skin and underlying tissues to die - to become necrotic. For example, a patient laying in bed for days or weeks at a time in the same relative position, like on their back or just one side; This could create pressure ulcers (typically) on the skin covering bony areas, like the hips, sacrum, heels, or even elbows. Post-op = post-operative = after being operated on. A post-op pressure ulcer is where the dead necrotic tissue has been surgically removed, cut away to expose healthy tissue, in a process known as debriding... just like what is done with 3rd-degree burn victims. The necrotic (dead) tissue must be removed before healing can begin, as leaving it in place can cause serious infection (bone and blood infections) and contribute additional damage to surrounding tissues due to the action of infection toxins contributing to necrotic tunneling (separation of tissue layers)... which can be difficult to get a handle on and resolve. This is probably TMI... but there you have it.

    Now you're talking my language! Duct tape can work in a pinch also (butterfly). Because you never know what you're going to run into out in the field. I'm a bit of a wound care specialist also, out of circumstance and necessity, although not certified. I deal a lot with pressure sores, especially with post-op stage 3 & 4. Not pretty stuff. Kudos.

    Debate: How important are the (working) poor to our society?

    Matthew 26:11 and as well Mark 14:7 Or in other words, you won't always have me around to pay for you. This sword has many edges... choose yours carefully.
