What's that got to do with anything? I used to identify as a toaster, but it didn't do me much good.

There is water in isopropyl. You can get 99%, but most over-the-counter brands have around 70%. That still leaves 30% water.

Wonder if you would die from the electrical shock or if it would create a spark and catch fire first.

Well, it won't be Arthur, poor person no longer identifies as a Toaster :-/

It's sad that society made poor person feel that way that poor person decided to identify as a poor person instead of poor person's true identity, a 4 slot Toaster with adjustable darkness by toast.

Don't worry about it too much, whenever I get too broke I get off my lazy ass and go to work.

I went in rooting for Trump but turned it off 20 minutes later, thinking the both of them needed a good spanking.

I didn't watch it [yet], but I heard some things about it. Sounds like it didn't go well for anyone, but the channels that I saw from made Trump look like the big problem.

I think this sums it up quite well.

One reason why I love Reuters is that they don't just report the same stories as everyone else. They do actual journalism to uncover big stories themselves.

Heard about the secretive process to come up with changes for policing that excluded public hearings and only included law enforcement insiders instead of the other side of the argument:

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-justice-rights-exclusive/exclusive-trump-policing-panel-was-warned-about-secretive-process-before-court-ruling-idUSKBN26M7C9

The proposed changes were to essentially give police additional sweeping powers, and further strengthen the "qualified immunity" laws that protect police. They also want for police officers to be able to review body cam footage prior to making statements about their conduct. Which just sounds like letting them see if they're caught before they lie. I wonder if they're going to afford civilian crime suspects the same right. I'm kidding, of course they're not.

Append:

They're also trying to establish overseers at the state level so that "progressive prosecutors" aren't allowed to toss out punishments on minor offenses. For example, for cannabis possession. They're trying to make it so that minor offenses always carry a mandatory sentence to be "hard on crime". Especially crime that isn't hurting anyone committed by poor people. Crime committed by wealthy people that hurts lots of people will continue to be ignored, of course.

Trump tested positive for covid

I want to be overjoyed, but I'm afraid of the karma coming back around. :o

I have had a sore throat for a few days now, and so far I'm not getting better. I don't think that it's COVID, but I can't rule it out either. I rarely go out, but my wife does regularly.

I stayed up late the other night drinking beer, and my throat got really dry, and I think that just made me vulnerable. That said, it's theoretically possible that a virus cell managed to survive and find its way into my throat during this time, but it seems unlikely.

Nevertheless, even though I think it would be good for the world for Trump to step down and be out of the running, I'm not willing to darken my soul with hateful wishes. :P

Guys, I've noticed some "color bleeding" (for lack of a better description) between high-contrast colors on my TV (Insignia NS-32D511NA15) recently. The issue isn't present on my little Acer monitor though, so I know the fault lies entirely with the TV.

Left is TV, right is monitor (as captured by my phone close to the screens):

Any idea why this happens?

I had the same problem with an old samsung display. Now they said it was likely just my eyes getting worse. But LCDs do age. Each LCD color ages, and ages at different rates from each other. However, blurriness implies the individual layers of the screen have moved apart (swollen due to oxygen migration?) and I haven't seen any research to prove it.

One day I want to buy two of the exact same monitor (like one I have already) and compare them. If either one looks "sharper" than the other, than it's pretty damning proof that LCDs can get blurry over time.

Do any of these help Chris?

You're right Bams, probably not the best idea to do that with a sore throat, before Fortnight... ooops >:(
