    It was a grand old time. Forgot I'm super old here, relatively speaking. Ignoring homework, have a meeting and then work. Meh.
  2. Not directly related to this thread, but I don't feel like finding the right place to put it on reddit. A [female] friend of mine who has dated guys in the past has a girlfriend, which is not the issue. She more or less just brought it up in casual conversation (I asked about her sweatshirt which was similar to one she already had, said it was her girlfriend's). As it is relevant, she brings it up. My problem is totally internal but I don't want to continue being weird (or at least I think I am?) - my brain had categorized her as straight and is having a hard time ignoring/changing my arbitrary label. I think it's mostly because I am not at a point where I have acceptably boxed myself in and so having other people being totally cool with their sexuality is weirding me out. Which makes no sense but there you go. I overthink everything and like having everything labelled nicely and logically. Thoughts?
  3. 5'6"/167.6cm, worth noting I'm female, German/Polish/assortedWesternEuropean. Now shortest person on the poll. :(

    -14C, no idea on the windchill but not good. Definitely a stay inside kind of evening and tomorrow it's looking like no school for the area, 10 inches overnight probably.

    Got a couple cavities filled today, worst part was holding my mouth open for like an hour. Continuing to snow here, probably in the area of 6 inches or so, not looking forward to driving back to school in a couple days, looks like they've got a bit more snow than we do which is good for snow statues... Drifting like crazy though.
  6. Not quite Canada. But definitely near the border, the UP is 'basically' Canada.

    Most random question ever - anyone in cold climates/otherwise goes outside in the cold and wears glasses - solution to the fogging with a balaclava issue? Been looking for thoughts/suggestions about making one that doesn't cause a ton of fogging.

    Yeah, but to an extent it's still ridiculous. I have to pay about $750 every three months just for stuff to keep me alive, plus the cost of insulin and test strips, which are like $25 copay [costs less because 'preventative' as in it prevents death] and $100 copay a month respectively. Every four years I have to get a new insulin pump which costs around $5000 which my insurance company will only pay if I've hit my [ridiculous] deductible - $10,000 for the family per year. These costs are actually worse than before the ACA garbage happened and it's only getting worse.
  9. Awesome, between Arceus' and DV's posts I think I've solved my problem. Figured there was an easy fix, and there was.
  10. That's not Chrome because I have issues with it. I'm currently using Firefox with a number (less than 20) of really helpful extensions so it tends to quickly eat up my RAM and then I end up killing it in Task Manager and restarting it to restore my current session - I have a laptop that I often have to shut down before I'm done with something on the internet so I just do that so Firefox remembers my tabs, which is probably a really stupid plan. Mostly I just need it to play nicely on Windows and with Norton, have some sort of AdBlockPlus type feature, and be able to remember passwords and sessions easily (ie the next time I open it open those tabs again. Probably Firefox can do this so please tell me how?) If it works with most/all or solves the problem that I have the plug in for that would be great. [hide=Extension list] [/hide]
  11. Did finally drop some money on cards, I think I actually have more MTG cards than Yugioh (considering I was really good at Yugioh and only quit when they started that 5Ds crap). I've got a blue/white detain deck and a red/green deck that I'm not sure of. I'm basically in it for the art but the game is quite fun.

    I have an exam and a job interview tomorrow. I should probably make sure my clothes aren't wrinkled. Or actually study.

    I'm not a doctor but I am a biomedical engineer-in-training... And I've had type 1 diabetes for 12 years. Symptoms you had are pretty much like a low blood sugar, happens to people sometimes, sometimes people just have chronic low blood sugar, stuff like that. If it happens again I'd get it checked out and/or immediately eat/drink something with some sugar in it to see if that helps. Just got back to school from Thanksgiving break, 3D printer is working again, bed wasn't sticky enough so I had to scrap an hour's worth of printing... But it works so that's good (last week it was falling apart whenever I tried to do something). Also took apart my laptop and blew out three years' worth of dust, much better now.

    Been trying to 3D print one thing for hours now, printer keeps falling apart, I dunno if it's lack of lubricant or what but I don't have time to keep trying, which sucks because I'm supposed to be making something for my brother.

    I think I shall take to just posting the weirdest questions in this thread... Anyone have or know where to find a free, decent 3D Care Bear model? Yes it's a bizarre request, but I'm looking for one, ideally low poly, and yeah I could make one but there's got to be one somewhere, or even a game I can rip one from... /weirdness for today

    Any of you guys good at physics? I hate it. Also I just copied this off my post on Reddit... The current in a 1.50mm × 1.50mm square aluminum wire is 1.00A . What are (a) the current density and (b) the electron drift speed? So current density is J=I/A so J=1/(1.5x10-3)2 = 444,444 A/m2 . (Had me put it in MA for whatever inane reason, so 0.444 MA/m2) Electron drift speed vd = J/ne = 444444/(2.1x1029 * 1.6x10-19) = 1.32 x 10-5 m/s It wants it in micrometers per second, so that x106 = 13.23. BUT THAT'S NOT THE ANSWER. (According to MasteringPhysics which is garbage.) What am I screwing up here?

    Ha. What part of Michigan? I can vouch that you'd never get through a winter in the UP with a RWD or even some 2WD unless they're tiny and you can just dig them out/pick them up. There's a reason every other car up here is a Subaru. Oh also - listening to Wings/Bruins game, pretty good, looking forward to the rest of the season. Trying to edit an STL file with four different programs and I have achieved nothing. Partially because I don't know Inventor. (NX doesn't open STLs, OpenSCAD renders it wrong, and MeshLab crashes... Blender makes it annoying triangles as per usual.)

    Got up late, worked a bit on my 3D printer, discovered the magic that is JB Weld, had some beer brats that were really good, burned a mattress, came back to my dorm and considering going to bed now or frustrating myself with more 3D printer building; square headed screws, presumably on the grounds that they're harder to strip, make up nearly all of the plastic to wood connections and I hate it.

    Have 3D printer parts. Have class in an hour and a half. Can't start building until Saturday. Also I don't like physics.

    Because bandwagon: Off times at uni though, and the wifi has been being dumb lately, so not as good as usual. Damn, Duff, that's worse than mine at home and mine at home is garbage. Anyway wasting time before lunch and my second class of the day, installing CrunchBang as dual boot later for my open source 3D printing class; get to build and keep a RepRap so pretty psyched about that.

    I do love mine, just they don't really work in the car, which is my issue. 10 hour drive to and from school, no fun.

    Never really liked them/don't work well with the frames I usually have, also kind of just wanted bigger frames/lenses for said sunglasses thing. For some reason, I feel like being able to own prescription sunglasses and not lose/break them is some indicator of being an 'adult' and it's one I currently want unlike other recent developments such as nice interview clothes things/heteronormative things that do not make me happy. [hide=For Reference, current glasses/hair] less than stellar quality but you get it. [/hide]

    Spent $200 on rx sunglasses from the internet today. Somewhat apprehensive about this but I haven't had wearable rx sunglasses in about five years so I felt it was justified, especially at $200 for a pair of Ray-Bans with polarized rx lenses (and my script is not particularly light). According to the website it's 3-5 [business] days, it says I should have them by this coming Thursday, so pretty excited about that. Otherwise just a lot of stuff happening in a short period of time and I'm not too thrilled about it. Also the d key on my keyboard is being a little wonky. Off to play some games and then probably sleep, a lot of sleeping has been happening this week because of my empty schedule, it starts filling up tomorrow.

    I love how my one question that I guess I really did know the answer to has sparked all this.

    Nope, not really a lot of interest to do so either (no romantic relationships of any kind here), although there definitely exists the want in certain situations (basically demi to a T) but those situations pretty much tend to be in relation to girls which is fine (ie homoromantic), just less than the easiest thing to deal with here in conservative land.
