Zero Edge If you stared straight at a total eclipse with no protection you might burn the retina of your eyes. The burn would not be the same kind of burn you would receive from staring straight at the sun (which would be a filled circle) but instead would be a thin outline of a circle. I wonder if a person with this type of burn would have differing psychological traits than others. I wonder if they would be able to visually focus on things better than others considering they have a boundary circle permanently within their vision. I wonder if it changed the culture of peoples of ancient times if they happened stare at a total eclipse...
🦾 Lucian Marin I stared multiple times at the sun. I don't think the burn is permanent.
☕ David Antoine Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse, when the moon entirely blocks the sun's apparent disk. You have to be careful not to look at the sun in any other circumstances. During a total solar eclipse maximum phase, you can even look at it with binoculars, it's incredible. But you have to be aware of the time and stop staring at it when the end of the total phase approaches. A "thin outline of a circle" burn would probably occur if you have the bad idea of looking at an annular eclipse during the max phase, with binoculars and no protection. Having eye burn damage suck. Zero uplift.

🦾 Lucian Marin The zombie with arthritis walked 16 km today. Sports supplements like carnitine and creatine seems to help me better than anything else that flies around on groups and forums. FQs aren't antibiotics, they are chemotherapeutic agents. It's really hard to live with broken mitochondria and oxidative stress.
Zero Edge The human brain is so stupid sometimes.. Why even process pain when there is nothing that can be done for it? I get it.. its a signal to tell you something is wrong but there's a huge host of things you cannot do anything to remedy so the pain is a pointless notification. Wish we could program our brains to tune out useless notifications. Sorry bout all this bad stuff man. In the past since I don't like to take pain killers I did have some success overloading myself with stimuli (notifications) which made my brain ignore some of the pain.. Things like holding a full bladder, while maintaining other stimuli sensations.. random sorry

🦾 Lucian Marin How does it work?
🤗 Alex P. as per current MO, I can't grasp what the app is actually doing, wo subscribing/joining. no screenshots, no clue, ugh.
🥝 Mr Anyone here have a vision pro? What are your thoughts so far ?
🦾 Lucian Marin I might buy Quest 4 instead of AVP 2, that's how I see things. A Vision Air might be interesting.
Zero Edge I've never liked the whole "monkeys on a typewriter" thing because technically it isn't true. An infinite amount of monkeys given an infinite amount of time would never write Shakespeare because no matter what, a monkey cannot type in perfect randomness, meaning no matter how many or how long it would never type Shakespeare. If you made a device and trained a monkey to type perfectly random.. yeah, sure.

I tried Samsung Galaxy S24 in the store today. The design is amazing, camera is terrible and the software experience is horrible. I will stick with my Pixel 5 for the moment. Pixel 9 renders look promising.
😀 Tom I liked my Pixel 5, but a Pixel 8 Pro upgrade was free for me. I initially missed the smaller form-factor of the 5, but I quickly adapted to the 8. Getting a TPU case with a built-in MagSafe-whatever and magnetic PopSocket is a great combo.
Zero Edge If you were standing behind God watching him judge would you be hoping for the person to be pardoned or for them to be condemned? John 8:1-11, Luke 15:7, Jonah 4, Luke 15:11-32, Matthew 20:13-16 | Sin is always harmful and we should always try our best to live a life apart from it. In the end God is the judge of man. Not you. For me, I would always be rooting for Luke 15:7. Always. In all circumstances. For all people.

🦾 Lucian Marin I think Luke 3:8 is the most important part of the . People who are religious aren't better than people who are not. Good people are only does who are doing good things or the God's way.

🦾 Lucian Marin I hate "doctors" these days. I took FQ antibiotic because they made me believe I have an UTI which I didn't. Then they made me believe I have an autoimmune issue which I don't. My entire body is now destroyed by "doctors". They make you believe their lies.
🦾 Lucian Marin I was in hospital for 3 days. They didn't find a thing wrong with me. I still got joint paint after fluoroquinolone. After that I was fired. This is the worst year ever for me. It never ends.

🦾 Lucian Marin Where did you find you about Subreply?
😀 Tom It's been almost 9 years ago for me, but I think it was HN.
🦧 Simon Gray Just realised my SD slots are more universally compatible on my devices than various gens of USB
🦾 Lucian Marin I want to move my backup data from external SSD to microSD but they are still pretty expensive to achieve the same speed.
