Interesting. I just did my weekly "spam inspection" (ok, I lie: I try to do it weekly, but sometimes I just delete it all without having the energy to look through it).

And either spammers are using snippets of technical emails (I've seen that), and that is breaking the gmail bayesian filters for real technical emails, or Google really has something against +Mark Brown

Mark, what did you do to piss off gmail so much? I had an unusually big set of emails marked as spam in general, but I think you single-handedly were about two thirds of that.

And as far as I can tell, it's not because you're trying to sell me ED solutions or trying to fix my tinnitus. 

I understand why gmail doesn't give the kind of itemized scores that spamassassin traditionally uses, but it does make it hard to figure out exactly why gmail hates some posts (and clearly some people).

Open siphon effect, dipping

Non-Newtonian fluids are capable of all kinds of counter-intuitive behaviors. The animation demonstrates one of them: the tubeless or open siphon. Once the effect is triggered by removing some of the liquid, the fluid quickly pours itself out of the beaker. This is possible thanks to the polymers in the liquid. The falling liquid pulls on the fluid left behind in the beaker, which stretches the polymers in the fluid. When stretched, the polymers provide internal tension that opposes the extensional force being applied. This keeps the fluid in the beaker from simply detaching from the falling liquid. Instead, it flows up and over the side against the force of gravity, behaving rather more like a chain than a fluid.  (Image credit: Ewoldt Research Group)

This would make transferring my homebrew so much easier!
But then the beer might have a snot-like consistency...

Is it possible to give a 0 star rating? I took my car in on a snowy day because I knew it would be really slow. It was. The sales guy was nice but really unhelpful in choosing a snow tire. He basically said "it's just a matter of preference" but then didn't give me any idea of what the hell people might prefer or what sort of parameters distinguished the tires. A quick internet search solved his lack of knowledge. He got me some quotes pretty quickly and it was relatively reasonable so I decided to buy a set of the big O ice claws. He helpfully told me that I could save $100 by signing up for 6months same as cash, so I did. He said he didn't have the tire in stock but it could come from the Aurora store (no problem). I asked how long it would take to get over to this store. They were super evasive about when the guy might show up with my tire. It was like they were talking about a drunk uncle who may or may not ever show up, not a core function within a profitable business. He wouldn't commit to a time, but I was cool with leaving the truck with him all day. He said they can definitely have it done by 4pm. The tire delivery guy / drunk uncle would (probably) be there by 4 at the latest -- mounted by 5pm. Cool. I had plans at 8:30 and I had to go pick up some people who couldn't dig their car out of the snow, so this was working out perfectly. I give them my keys, sign the paperwork and walk through the snow to work, which was only about 0.25 miles away. So noon comes and goes with no contact, so I call them to check on status at about 1pm. They get super irritated and tell me the roads are bad. Okay no problem. About 3:30 i still haven't heard anything, so I give them a call. It's like they've never talked to me before. They say "yeah, I dunno where he is. Roads must be bad." I ask again if it will be done by 5 and they say "yeah, I think so... If the guy shows up". So I get a little busy with work and I look up and it's 5:30. Still no call. I call them again and they unapologetically tell me that the guy still isn't there. Maybe if he shows up they can still get it done, they say. I let him know that I am extremely unhappy and that they need to do a better job with customer service, communication and basic execution. This guy couldn't care less. I tell him I want to cancel the order and he really didn't care. He acted like this happens all the time. And now I go to discount tire I guess. Bummer... That was my first experience with Big O in 10 years. Now I remember why I hated them back then, too. These guys suck. Go to a professional somewhere else.
