I googled it and found this wikileaks post from the FBI. Apparently pedophiles use this symbol to identify themselves, sometimes stamping it into jewelry.
The heart inside a heart implies that the person likes girls. A triangle inside a triangle implies boys.
I'm sure the person who put it in the tip jar didn't realize what it was, but it still makes me uncomfortable.
Edit: My top post is now about pedophile secret codes, I totally just got added to some watchlist.
Oh god. And I learn about this on reddit. According to LE, 4 dead and 10 wounded. Also according to various accounts driver says that the bus started moving on its own and brakes didn't work, or told that he mixed up brake and throttle pedals (maybe it's both in succession).
Methanol is far more difficult to ignite than gasoline and burns about 60% slower. A methanol fire releases energy at around 20% of the rate of a gasoline fire, resulting in a much cooler flame. This results in a much less dangerous fire that is easier to contain with proper protocols. Unlike gasoline, water is acceptable and even preferred as a fire suppressant, since this both cools the fire and rapidly dilutes the fuel below the concentration where it will maintain self-flammability. These facts mean that, as a vehicle fuel, methanol has great safety advantages over gasoline. Ethanol shares many of these same advantages.
Since methanol vapor is heavier than air, it will linger close to the ground or in a pit unless there is good ventilation, and if the concentration of methanol is above 6.7% in air it can be lit by a spark and will explode above 54 F / 12 C. Once ablaze, an undiluted methanol fire gives off very little visible light, making it potentially very hard to see the fire or even estimate its size in bright daylight, although in the vast majority of cases, existing pollutants or flammables in the fire (such as tires or asphalt) will color and enhance the visibility of the fire. Ethanol, natural gas, hydrogen, and other existing fuels offer similar fire-safety challenges, and standard safety and firefighting protocols exist for all such fuels.

Sorry about the ticket. I know those can suck but overfilled fire extinguishers do have a tendency to not discharge properly as you can see in this link
Also I like how you leave out the other safety violations you had or that you were warned about beforehand. That particular ticket can't be given by us without one of those conditions.

"Amok is a Malay word for the homicidal sprees occasionally undertaken by lonely, Indochinese men who have suffered a loss of love, a loss of money, or a loss of face. The syndrome has been described in a culture even more remote from the West: the stone-age foragers of Papua New Guinea.
The amok man is patently out of his mind, an automaton oblivious to his surroundings and unreachable by appeals or threats. But his rampage is preceded by lengthy brooding over failure, and is carefully planned as a means of deliverance from an unbearable situation. The amok state is chillingly cognitive. It is triggered not by a stimulus, not by a tumor, not by a random spurt of brain chemicals, but by an idea. The idea is so standard that the following summary of the amok mind-set, composed in 1968 by a psychiatrist who had interviewed seven hospitalized amoks in Papua New Guinea, is an apt description of the the thoughts of mass murderers continents and decades away:
>"I am not an important man... I possess only my personal sense of dignity. My life has been reduced to nothing by an intolerable insult. Therefore, I have nothing to lose except my life, which is nothing, so I trade my life for yours, as your life is favoured. The exchange is in my favour, so I shall not only kill you, but I shall kill many of you, and at the same time rehabilitate myself in the eyes of the group of which I am a member, even though I might be killed in the process."
The amok syndrome is an extreme instance of the puzzle of human emotions. Exotic at first glance, upon scrutiny they turn out to be universal; quintessentially irrational, they are tightly interwoven with abstract thought and have a cold logic of their own.
From How The Mind Works by Steven Pinker"
Perhaps, but then again avian respiration isn't the same as mammalian. Birds don't take breaths the same way mammals do; they have air bladders all up and down their body that "store" breaths of air before the lungs draw the air. All the air sacs at the rear of the bird have to be filled before the lungs can do their job.
Doesn't work. There was a giant infestation in the late 70's in Schenectady, NY, here is the only reference I can find to it:
> In 1979, the police in Schenectady, N.Y., responded to a complaint about a barking dog. When they arrived, however, they found cockroaches streaming from the windows of a two-family home, raining down from trees and darting into the street. Inside, roaches had plastered every wall like stucco and had left bites all over a 64-year-old woman and her 24 dogs, which, it turned out, had been barking for good reason. The swarm comprised approximately one million German cockroaches, perhaps the largest household infestation ever recorded.
They combated that infestation by ~~burning~~ the house.... Once the house was set on fire, the roaches blanketed the neighborhood. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in finding any video of the incident.
EDIT: She not only had 24 dogs, but also had 22 cats. I was told they burned the house, but my research just says it was demolished.... Still pretty fucked....

Hey! Whale biologist here! This is correct n' all, but it wasn't the case in this instance - this whale was very much still alive when this photo was taken.
This was a juvenile minke whale that came into Halifax harbour, bobbing upright as above; it was still alive when snapped here, and died from its injuries overnight shortly after. From the Marine Animal Response Society:
> On July 29th, a whale was reported in distress at the entrance to Halifax harbour. Upon arrival, we found a minke whale bobbing vertically in the water with its tongue completely swollen. Based on the small size of the animal, it may have been still dependent on its mother, which was nowhere to be seen. Due to its young age and severe injury, the animal was unlikely to survive. After consulting with veterinarians, representatives from MARS, DFO and DNR responded the following day to determine the best course of action for this young whale, but found that it had died overnight. While retrieving the carcass we discovered it had been entangled in some old, lost fishing gear. The carcass was taken to the Agricultural College in Truro where a necropsy was conducted. We found that there were signs of a physical injury to the animals jaw. It’s possible, while anchored by the fishing gear, the animal was hit by a vessel causing its tongue to swell. The remains were left at the Agricultural College for a study on composting.
Here's a picture of the same whale after they hauled the carcass out the water - tongue still inflated!
Just kidding, it's real. Still not sure what he is, but - in another shot, you can see a "CWF" on the back of his getup. South Africa seems nice.
I'm Dominican-American, my parents are both from DR. There is stigma for the reasons mentioned above. A lot of it comes from the history with Haiti. To put it in perspective, Haitians in DR are viewed like Mexican immigrants in the southern U.S. states. Cheap labor, but often unwanted. It's a terrible stereotype/stigma that's common in DR. It's even sadder being that most of the population is of darker (black) skin color because of our ancestry.
Additionally, the country had a dictator named Trujillo in the early 20th century that was extremely racist. He was so racist that he had thousands of Haitians (and dark-skinned Dominicans) slaughtered in what's known as the Parsley Masacre .
He also offered sanctuary to fleeing/emigrating European refugees (amongst those, the Jewish), in attempts to "lighten the Dominican race". While many people today are ignorant as to why they have a stigma towards darker-skinned individuals, it all stems from this dark history (no pun intended).
I was born and raised here in the U.S., so thankfully I wasn't exposed to this other than when I would visit for a couple of months during summer break as a kid. Even then, my I unasked for nickname was "Moreno" though I'm more of a brown/tan complexion.
My wife just so happens to be white, with no motive on my end other than me just loving and wanting to be with her. Family members joke that I'm "refinando la raza" (refining the race) because I married a white woman with blond hair and blue eyes, and our kids are naturally lighter skinned than me. It's honestly pretty fucking annoying.
The printers are not laser they are high pressure ink jet systems.
I had to service units much like the one in the above link while working at a bread factory.
The print head is the small rectangular box on the stand. It is connected to the rest of the printer by hose/wire bundle. The ink is stored in large bottles that are loaded into the larger main housing of the printer.
They can shoot the ink a good distance (300mm for the model in the link) and still produce a readable image. If the target is porous enough to absorb some of the ink it will print on it.
Wait, credit cards? How old (or new) is this sign? Makes me think it's a joke of some sort.

I just sold my truck on craigslist and had a guy from around 1200 miles away call me up and tell me that he'd buy it sight unseen for full asking price. Using, of course, cashier's checks. Noped right the fuck out of that deal. He had a very hustle approach about him so it was easy for me to detect, but I've bought and sold quite a few vehicles and I'll tell ya, for your average joe you wouldn't see it coming. I read something about a ring of thieves doing this very thing not too long ago out of chicago, actually.
*4. Distant person offers to send you a cashier's check or money order and then have you wire money:
This is ALWAYS a scam in our experience—the cashier's check is FAKE.
Sometimes accompanies an offer of merchandise, sometimes not.
Scammer often asks for your name, address, etc. for printing on the fake check.
Deal often seems too good to be true.
edit because I fucking loved that truck. Owned her for 13 years, and I think she got a good pasture to live out her days. (local pasture for cash)

Make sure you give them a view, they're pretty entertaining.
Well it's actually REALLY cool: a male black widow can tell how recently a female spider has fed using only cues on her web. A well-fed female is less likely to eat her mate than a starved female, and somehow, he can detect clues of her recent foraging success even when the female is not in the web! Here's some heavy reading if you're interested
Not sure you'll be able to access the PDF file, but you can read the abstract
Since the youtubes are coming down fast, I've uploaded the video to liveleak and tinypic:
It is possible, but the task is very difficult and labor intensive.
The biggest issue is gathering enough spider silk. Unlike silk worms which can be housed in very dense populations, spiders tend to prey on one another if attempts are made to gather many in one place. This would almost restrict the silk gathering to either very large isolating structures or from spiders in the wild.
The second issue you would need to deal with is that much of the spider silk is covered with additional materials to make them sticky. This would make spinning into some kind of thread almost impossible without coating the silk with a material like diatomaceous earth or treating it with a solvent to remove these materials. Either way, this would tend to lessen the overall strength of the threads.
The final issue is the strength and rarity of the spider silk means that you would want to use the smallest diameter thread possible. This would mean having over 1000 threads per inch (and this could be very much higher in number). This might push the limits of most looms.
Artificial spider silk has been investigated as fibers for cloth. It seems to have properties similar to Kevlar.
To be clear: While smog is serious issue in Almaty, it is not that bad all the time. This kind of heavy smog happens rarely due to certain weather conditions. Also there is an app to monitor air quality in Almaty: AUA from kazakh ауа [aoua], meaning air. Also local authorities are trying to hide real air pollution from the public and were actively pressuring App developers some time ago. Their main point was that app developers are not authorized official source for air monitoring data and thus can't publish their own monitoring data since it would spread disinformation and panic among population. Not aware of current situation tho.

Fake, unfortunately. The story was conjured by a medical examiner as an example of how mode of death can be influenced by subtle shifts in circumstance.
Someone had the exact same experience as you apparently. There's probably a lot of drug dealers going around knocking on the doors to make sales. I've stayed in some sketchy as shit hotels in the Los Angeles area but they were all better than that. The cost of living is much lower in the Midwest and South but the poor areas out there seem to be almost third world. It's honestly kind of amazing.
here's another angle, you can see it's the same piece by the cracks, and you can see that there's a rectangular hole in the kerb around the wood.
Edit: Yes. "kerb" is the British spelling of "curb".
Apparently "curb" is actually the original spelling, however.
I think the reference was to Holden's last name, Caulfield.
Also, because I'm on this account, here's the etymology for the word "caul":
>caul:early 14c., "close-fitting cap worn by women," from Fr. cale "cap," back formation from calotte, from It. callotta, from L. calautica "type of female headdress with pendent lappets," a foreign word of unknown origin. Medical use, in reference to various membranes, dates to late 14c. Especially of the amnion enclosing the fetus before birth from 1540s. This, if the child is born draped in it, was supersititously supposed to protect against drowning (cauls were advertised for sale in British newspapers through WWI).
I remember reading about this black mother who was having a seizure at home and when the paramedics arrived, they refused to take her to the hospital because they thought she couldn't afford the ride.
She ended up dying and now the grandmother has to take care of all of her daughters children.
Racism and healthcare truly fuck over the minorities more than anyone else.
Yes, and its 100% true.
I was in college, last days of my sophomore year. My school had a tradition of bridge jumping at an old abandon bridge at a big river.
Anyways for the more adventurous types we would jump from a power house + dam up the river about 200 meters.
Anyways. I jumped off the powerhouse for the 2nd time that day. Got pulled over the dam. I am halfway decent at swimming so I managed to stay above the water and swim away for about 30 seconds. But then I was out of energy and my body started to get swept back into the dam's undercurrent.
I was pulled back the entire 20-30 meters I had just swum, into the raging mouth of the dam. I was underneath the water for about 2 minutes. It was all brown. I eventually just accepted the fact that I was going to die and pictured the newspaper headline announcing my death.
After those 2 minutes I got another sudden breath of air, I don't know how I was completely disoriented as to where I was. I was being spit back out by the river. This time I was practically dead so I floated on top of the water as best as I could. I had been screaming the entire time for help. Eventually I was near enough to shore that I was pulled in by my 3 "life saving buddies".
I laid on the shoreline for 15 minutes regaining conscious and breath, I couldnt move and they carried me back the car and then drove to the dorm room. I sat in a shower for 2 hours breathing...
Anyways, my stomach didnt accept any food for about a week and I threw up 20-30 times an hour. I drank lots of water and never went to the hospital.
I looked like a zombie for my older brothers graduation at the end of that week.
edit: a lot of the numbers are approxamite. This happened in 2010.
I seriously don't understand why this is in the WTF subreddit, or why people are commenting with that exact sentiment.
This isn't cruel — quite the contrary — but it isn't a vacation either. This is well below the current standard of living in Norway, so there is no incentive to commit crime based on prison facilities.
This is a rehabilitation prison. People go out of there much more likely to become productive and valuable, tax paying members of the community.
Our goal isn't to avenge the crime victim, and should be either. If the goal is to reduce crime rates, the reaction shouldn't be "WTF?!", it should be "What can we do to make this work elsewhere?"

X-Plane is pretty much the current gold-standard for flight sims in the home and is also used commercially in multi-axis hydraulic professional flight sims. It is pretty incredible how much realism they simulate. And the feature set between the home and commercial versions is virtually identical. Home is pretty much only missing the stuff required to control spherical/cylindrical projection screens and software to interface with physical high end flight control systems.
Pretty nuts what you can get for $60 these days. And a nice bonus is the founder and CEO of the company that makes X-Plane is a major fighter of copyright trolls.

The most likely technical explanation of this is that Amazon used to hash their passwords with the following function
old_unix_crypt( toUpperCase (password) )
The man page of crypt states clearly that it truncates the input to 8 characters. (It also truncates each character to 7 bits but the consequences of that are less obvious)
How should Amazon have solved this without user interruption? (Assuming it doesn't store the cleartext passwords)
This would have allowed for a seamless upgrade, with no visible user interruption.

Dear German (and other foreign) friends, I'd like to make you aware of the existence of VPNs. They're pretty cheap, and will unblock all of this stuff as well as mask your browsing history to your ISP. Personally, I use StrongVPN. It's like, 8 bucks a month USD and if you get a server in the states, your computer will act as if you're located in the US, bypassing all of those stupid location filters.
Edit: There might be a speed hit given the cross-country internet, but trust me, it's worth it. (Example of speed hit would be say, normal ISP is 50 mbit, but you'd only get 10-15 on the VPN.)

While I may very well be the definition of 'Straight hair and curly teeth', I'll leave this here for our American cousins to ponder, with a smile of course:
If anyone is wondering why he can't drink, I believe, from my understanding of rabies, it is because once rabies enters the brain it changes some behaviors of the host. There is the more commonly known behavioral change of making the host more aggressive, but there is another one (the one displayed here). What rabies does, is that it makes the host "afraid" of water and unable drink it. This is key because when you add this with the aggression, you get a host that wants to bite or attack something else with a mouth full of infected saliva that the host cannot swallow or wash out do to this fear of water, thus making the passing on of rabies much more effective. ~~I'm not sure what it changes in the brain though to cause this so maybe someone with a little bit more experience can help out.~~
Edit: Here's an interesting NPR RadioLab piece on rabies and the Milwaukee Protocol and Jeanna Giese, one of the few people to survive rabies without receiving the vaccination
TL;DR?: He's scared of water
Edit 2: As /u/MrsMasterBlaster and /u/Tikka_T3 pointed out the fear is more of a reaction to the muscles in the man's throat spasming. He doesn't want the rabies to make his throat to hurt so he doesn't like the water.

Also, yeah, it is a bit odd to see legitimately useful language comments here isn't it? But so long as they're not being used in a degrading manner or to lessen an otherwise strong argument, I guess who cares.
It was drugs and not directly this but I want to say in the book Freakonomics (Possibly Predictably Irrational) there is a chapter about how gangs are structured after the author hung out with one for research. I guess it's pretty well organized and corporate like, for larger gangs especially.
Teens get into more accidents than seniors, but seniors get into more accidents than the middle aged (30-65), but very elderly seniors match the youngest teens in accident frequency.
I fully support stricter driving education requirements for teen drivers and periodic testing of elderly drivers who are 70+ (such as every other year.)
my wife's Android phone was stolen 2 weeks ago. I downloaded a free app called Android Lost. You register on their site, and it pushes it to your device remotely. You use your gmail account that is linked to your device.
Long story short, it provides a ton of information, and I was able to contact the police and retrieve her phone within 2 hours of installing the app.
I don't know for sure that it would work on a tablet, but it might.
edit here is a second app that allows AndroidLost to work on a tablet. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.androidlost.jumpstart&hl=en
His username is actually a reference to a song which discourages infidelity. It's about a woman suspecting her boyfriend of cheating on her and demanding that he let her smell his dick to determine if he was using it for sex.
Why you comin' home 5 in the morn'?
Something's going on, can I smell yo dick?
Don't play me like a fool, cause that ain't cool,
So wat u need to do is lemme smell yo dick (x2)
Nice, I like the way Wolfram represents the equation! I also like how it can tell me the amount of carbohydrates in a cubic light year of bananas, too.
I just went to a Malaysian island on the South China Sea called Tioman island. Rainforest, beaches. Pristine beautiful place, completely getting TRASHED. Garbage everywhere, like some tweakers front yard, but out in nature.
Cigarette butts and broken glass in the sand. Shoes and plastic bags, liquor bottles thrown in the pond.
People just don't give a fuck. It's so frustrating!

It was mostly about my math skills and political beliefs. This was thrown in there and I was caught off guard.
EDIT: What goldflakes is saying is true. I looked into it and the researcher who created the survey goldflakes links also created the survey I took. However, the questions are a bit different in the two surveys because his link is entirely based on morality questions like this.
Here is a Link to the researcher in question. The first HIT is my survey and the second HIT is goldflakes'.
EDIT2: I also think the math section was to somewhat test morals as well, apparently the answer to the questions were located on the screen and they ask you if it is ok to use them.
wow, literal penny stock
It's from instructables. I would pair it with the mouse-mouse someone else posted there.
a. To oppose or resist with boldness and assurance: defied the blockade by sailing straight through it.
b. To refuse to submit to or cooperate with: defied the court order by leaving the country.
To be unaffected by; resist or withstand: "So the plague defied all medicines" (Daniel Defoe).
To challenge or dare (someone) to do something:* She defied her accusers to prove their charges.*
From what I can tell, hotels with no reviews at all are at the bottom of the rankings. I found only one reviewed hotel with a worse rating, America's Best Inn Birmingham. There is actually one of these in the general area of my office park, it is meth/prostitute city. We call it America's Worst.
Trichinosis is not an issue in Norway or Sweden http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=no&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=no&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vetinst.no%2Fnor%2FFaktabank%2FAlle-faktaark%2FTrikinose
In Norway there haven't been a case in over 20 years.
FYI: It's Loveland on Jeju Island, South Korea.
If you ever go to Jeju, try the horse sashimi and black pig and mandarin makgoelli at Mawon

Yeah, well it was supposed to be "brown skinned girl" and was about an interracial relationship. Van Morrison changed the lyrics so radio stations would play it. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=2359

This report says a crowd chased him to the police station where he started eating the baby again.
Edit: Why am I being downvoted for providing a source?
There's no such thing as a singular "British accent". We have plenty of accents that make you come off as a complete idiot. Janner being one of them.
I gave a lecture in my first-year psychology class this semester where I discussed the Thatcher Effect. For the lecture, I photoshopped a couple of new examples featuring Robert Pattinson and Justin Bieber (I figured that, seeing my audience was largely 18-year-old girls, they'd recognise them easier than the Iron Lady). I've uploaded the powerpoint slides I used to sendspace. Set up a slideshow and you'll see them spin around.
As others here have mentioned, the brain processes faces differently to other things you see; there's a special area of the brain called the 'fusiform face area' which seems to be devoted to analysing faces. After all, while most faces aren't actually that different from each other, it's important to recognise them very quickly, to tell whether they're friend or foe. The result of this tension between needing to be accurate and needing to be fast is shortcuts to speed up the process while losing minimal amounts of useful information. One of the shortcuts is not bothering to check whether the eyes and mouth are the right way around relative to the rest of the face. Because when do you need to check that, except when people are trying to terrify you with the Thatcher illusion?
This is igniting quite a bit of controversy.

If you have a problem with ads, why did you subscribe in the first place?
No where does it say that Hulu Plus removes ads (except for some movies), so why would you think otherwise?
Actually, you're half right. Many species menstruate monthly. We're the only ones who bleed this much, though. It is because, as you said, we are in an arms race against parasitic fetuses which literally try to burrow directly into our vascular system to divert all resources to themselves.
TL;DR: Babies: the internal vampires.
