I wish every city had a subway like NYC. When I lived in Dallas I was able to get most of the places I needed via train as long as it was before 2am (you just have to live by one of the stations).

In Houston they look at you like a substandard poor who can't hack it if you use public transportation.

^ I’d probably just fix the issue. But then I can probably do it myself without going to the mechanic.

When your beer freezes the moment you open the bottle.

^ What's that about? Canada's still frozen in the Summer? That's rough.

Mechanic changed my seat setting, and now I'm having a hell of a time getting back to the sweet spot.

Something about supercooled liquid.



Mine froze pretty much completely solid though when I opened it. I am sure there are better videos of it. Long story short, threw a (very warm) beer into the freezer. Took it out about an hour later, nice and cold (no ice whatsoever). After opening the bottle, it instantly froze. No beer for me, lol. It happened to me with water a couple of times but never with beer until today.

And yes, I hate it when someone plays with my seat. It always feels like you have to get used to a new position even when you get back to the exact position the seat had been in before someone drymounted with it.

Ha, never had that happen. I checked out a physics explanation for this, and for various reasons liquids might remain in a liquid state at below freezing temps, then "nucleation" (crystal formation) can be triggered causing the liquid to freeze suddenly :pint:

Yes, supercool liquid is a supercool thing. Not so cool when you are looking forward to that one beer though :lol:

It's what brought down that plane out of Brazil a few years back. Supercooled freshwater high in a thunderhead plugged the outside air sensors so solid that the heaters couldn't cope. Pilots made decisions based on bad airspeed/altitude info. Or similar.

Now that you mention that, I recall watching a Nova doc investigating that French airliner crash, which was riveting.

I watch 'em all on youtube. Air Crash Investigaton & Mayday Air Crash Investigation.

One of these days I'd love to try-out an air flight simulator. I'm not a gamer, so I don't have a gaming box and I don't think there's software for something like that for a pc.

Had my instagram account hacked this afternoon. Went to look at it, it was forcing me to log in and told me there was no such username. I created a new account with my old username and went to accounts I posted in and saw my old comments under the hacked username.
