Well I should live forever then.

I don't see mention about a double blind research in this study. Especially that last paragraph about straight men who have sex with straight men.

Anyway, ladies, no need to stress. You too can obtain health benefits from masturbation by masturbating the next random good looking consenting male.

I was so disappointed to discover this isn't in fact a real publication.

Perhaps for stability use vertical cones with bladeless vortex turbines? Eg in these wind generators with propellerless turbines: http://www.wired.com/2015/05/future-wind-turbines-no-blades/#slide-1

+Ninja On Rye pretty good for a plumber!

I think several different versions of this and we'd probably see someone like Elon musk or that British entrepreneur buy it out, flog it to the masses.

Unless his put aside for some patent.

If no patent I hope every backyard mechanic and garage tinkerer develops it further.

There's definitely safety issues. But if we had the safety rules we have now we'd never have aeroplanes. In fact they would ban it now.

Lest we forget.

Oh and who reintroduced HECS after Gough Whitlam abolished tertiary education fees? Yep, Labor.

Who co-signed the TPP? Yep Labor.

Who gave the government the green light for mandatory data retention? Yep, Labor.

Today I lost my cool with traffic, the cab driver, and my work phone.

This is like adding a layer of snafu on top of the usual snafu.

Supervisor is not going to be happy with ordering a new phone for ~$1,000 but on top of that it had a lot of work contacts, personal contacts, personal details, ...

EDIT:
Phone found, handed over by a good Samaritan, all good. Actually I don't know if she was a Samaritan, but I bought her a box of chocolates as a thank you. Hope she didn't work in a chocolate shop.

When you see microaggressions occurring against colleagues, how should you respond? Kerry Ann Rockquemore offers guidance.

That's good.
I've used a similar technique with clients. We role play it for starters so it doesn't feel too awkward and the words begin to flow more naturally. It really does make a difference!

What women really want.

For science of course. Also useful for those who don't know what to look for, or even what they're looking at!?

74% Of US women (& 95% of South African women) search for the BBC,
A third of pommie women are in a tie with Canadian women,
Brazilian & Argentinian women like their shemales,
Aussie women have a hot spot for asians,
German women are kinky, no surprise there,
French, Italian and Spanish women like their sex mature,
Russian women like it up the hershey highway,
Mexican and Asian women like hentai.

Conclusion: More rearsearch is required.

+Boris Borcic eh, not so much on personal computers. Most people are pretty desensitized to tracking across sites, unless they're into something illegal.

Reads of snake oil, or as effective [bad] as CBT, to me. But I will share it just so I can find it later.

CBT stands for cock and ball torture cognitive behavioural therapy. Same difference.

i remember reading a reddit similar to this a few years ago from a young man from a wealthy enough family in new york through inheritance who had dropped out of school and didn't have to work, so he never did and stays at home all day smoking pot, no friends, no life, was asking for advice. a few other people chimed in with similar situations. can't find it unfortunately, will keep looking

Jeeze, I'm guilty of some of these, including getting on a jet plane in my tracky dacs (pyjamas really) and thongs.

I would prefer that some new arrivals do use a  tissue instead of horrible snorting sounds as snot builds up in their nasal passages.

When I first started driving taxi's I used to get extremely offended with tips. In some cases so disgusted I'd throw the money out the window, and drive off dangerously with wheels screeching. After a while, about 6 months, I got used to it though. But I can understand Japanese Restaurant workers being offended too.

So what do you do for a living? Be careful what you say, if you earn less than me I'm going to be quietly smug, and if you earn more than me I'm going to be both envious and resentful. Never mind, what do you think of the weather? :)

+Matt McIrvin it's not just that - do you tip on the price with taxes or without? i remember we went out for dinner with my second cousin in ny and she had a tip calculator on her preset to 20% (not sure why she couldn't just x1.2% with her phone) and i was shocked it was preset to 20%, but canadians/non-americans are notoriously "cheap" tippers (in ny at least), ha!!!

and a lot of people may not realize that if you pay by card and use the % tip option on the machine to pay the tip, it includes the taxes, etc.

Doing backups of Samsung SG5

Just backed up using Titanium Backup -Root
But it fucked up my wallpaper (on the phone). Not a biggie.

In the background I installed Kies 3 on the PC. But that screwed with the USB drivers. Now I can't see the SD Card via the PC to copy and delete the Titanium Backup.

I'll do a Kies backup too.

Then going to remove bloat and Samsung/Telstra bloatware.
Backup again,
Update firmware to lollipop 5,
Then encrypt the phone and data.

It's already got fingerprint password and alternative password but ICT advised me to encrypt the phone and data in case I lose the phone again.

Ok, phone folders visible when I close Kies.

The titanium backup is only 1.72 GB's. Now thats a problem. I know the OS and main apps is of the order of 5 to 8 GB. I mean after moving quite a few apps to the ExtSD card whatever is left on the main SD card still takes up ~ 8GB.

So Conclusion is Titanium didn't back up everything, even though system, app, and data files, including apps and data on the ExtSD card should be of the order of 20 to 25 GB! I know I have over 10 GB youtube science programs. Why didn't back those up?

I did select compress, but it won't be able to suppress binaries down to 1.7 GB.

The Kies backup is on 936 MB. As usual it doesn't backup app data or app cache.

I don't know just what Titanium is supposed to do but I found it useless. Like you I had backed up my stuff but when it came to restoring there wasn't anything useful there.

maybe I can lurn a fing or too from slimes.
 
"Slime moulds are known for their surprisingly complex cognitive abilities: finding the shortest way through a maze, anticipating periodic events, choosing the best diet or avoiding traps," 
Scientists have discovered slime mould - a single-cell organism at the bottom of the food chain - can learn.
