@ShadowWizardLoveZelda it might also be randomly knocking off IRGC officials and scientists
Or the american option when they don't want to randomly invade a country...
sanctions and strongly worded letters
 
1:12 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda what happens? :o
 
2:03 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda USA has a fleet in the area. An invasion on Taiwan would involve combat with the US Navy.

@JourneymanGeek yup
@Marco what's the chemical formula of water?
When you'll see you'll get what I meant. ;)
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact doubt it. USA isn't ready for a full scale war with China.
If China will hit USA directly so sure, self defense and such, but just to save a supposed ally? Doubtful.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I don't think china is either

@JourneymanGeek I assume the main reason they don't is the M.A.D. result.
 
@JourneymanGeek yup, and that's what keeping them from trying, as they can't know for sure USA will indeed not attack.
@SPArcheon huh? This?
Looks like innocent company.
 
Mutual assured destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy which posits that a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by an attacker on a nuclear-armed defender with second-strike capabilities would result in the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender. It is based on the theory of rational deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons against the enemy prevents the enemy's use of those same weapons. The strategy is a form of Nash equilibrium in which, once armed, neither side has any incentive to initiate a conflict or to disarm...
 
ahh
But it's MAD, not M.A.D ;)
Though... "REM", or "R.E.M"? Was never sure.
ah! With dots.
R.E.M. was an American alternative rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by drummer Bill Berry, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and lead vocalist Michael Stipe, who were students at the University of Georgia. One of the first alternative rock bands, R.E.M. was noted for Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style; Stipe's distinctive vocal quality, unique stage presence, and obscure lyrics; Mills's melodic bass lines and backing vocals; and Berry's tight, economical drumming style. In the early 1990s, other alternative rock acts such as Nirvana and Pavement viewed R.E.M. as a pioneer...
Wonder what/who determine this.
!!/dot Shadow
 
10:03 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda No such command 'dot'.
 
:(
Expected: S.H.A.D.O.W.
Why no report for the third?
ah still not 5 minutes
 
10:37 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda But do YOU believe they put a man on the moon?
 
10:48 AM
@JourneymanGeek no, but Everybody Hurts.
 
11:20 AM
so rude, mod nuked wizard spam. :P
 
11:35 AM
gling gling
(the sound of 500 rep awarded ;))
 
Show off
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda stylistic choice. It's often easier not to sprinkle everything with dots, but in this case the band creators' wish should be respected
 
sprinkles @M.A.R. with dots
 
Ew get your dots off of me
Or off me
Stylistic choice
 
11:54 AM
..................................................
 
I dunno, that doesn't look like a sprinkling to me. Too even :P
 
:·:.·.·.:·.·:.·
 
@M.A.R. ah, so, like a private name of people. Nice. :)
@Mithical encoded message?
 
......·.··.·.··.··
 
@Mithical yessir. Launching all nuclear missiles in 60 seconds
 
12:08 PM
@Mithical Much better :D

Which reminds me
@Tinkeringbell i.stack.imgur.com/0qgCs.jpg kitchen update
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda lol
 
12:34 PM
@JourneymanGeek Looks more like a laundry.
 
@ElementsInSpace kitchen and laundry are the 'same' space
 
@JourneymanGeek yeah, pretty common here too. (Not in my case though, house is big enough to have them separate. ;))
@Journeyman what's in the box?
 
oh that's my stove/oven
its connected to the gas so they just shifted it aside
that open space is where it'll go
 
@JourneymanGeek ah, but why didn't you unpack it yet?
 
oh its covered up temporarily so they can install the cabinets
 
12:44 PM
Neat.
 
its not a box as much as just some cardboard taped over it
 
My mother also ordered a new oven recently, but none in my family is handyman enough to install it, so she has to wait for technician to arrive and install it. :/
 
oh
the oven part of mine just plugs in
Its electric
the stove top is gas
 
1:00 PM
@JourneymanGeek Nice! Will the cabinet doors be getting handles/knobs? Or fingerprints all over? :P
 
I don't think they'll have handles
but tbh, I'm goood with that after the time I had to change ALL the handles at my parents place kitchen
the originals were plastic, but identical in size to ikea ones and breaking sooooo

@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I know, it's, H20, the first time I saw your phrase I thought: "the world is going to run out of water", but then I started to think if something else would happen, it would turn into hydrogen oxide (OH), right?
 
2:38 PM
I was wrong, it would actually be Hydroxyl
 
It would be unstable, and need to react with something :D
which wouldn't be good
 
@JourneymanGeek why?
 
most hydroxides are basic?
though I'd guess there's be nothing left that'd care
 
@JourneymanGeek you meant hydroxyles?
 
maybe
I've not touched chemistry in... waaaaay too long
 
2:45 PM
@JourneymanGeek what do you mean?
@JourneymanGeek me too
 
if all the water lost a hydrogen
everything would die :D
 
Everything would be dry, right?

In physiology, body water is the water content of an animal body contained in its tissues, blood, bones, and elsewhere. The percentages of body water contained in various fluid compartments add up to total body water (TBW). This water makes up a significant fraction of the human body, both by weight and by volume. Ensuring the right amount of body water is part of fluid balance, an aspect of homeostasis. == Location == By weight, the average adult human is approximately 60% water, and the average child is approximately 65% water. There can be considerable variation in body water percentage based...

You'll probably be a pile of alkaline ash but...
 
hmmm
 
lol
@Marco ask our dear @M.A.R. ;)
charges @Marco $2000 for a tip
 
3:08 PM
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard no, thanks
 
3:44 PM
@JourneymanGeek just wait until the light hits it just right and you're spending time cleaning the outside again because of all the prints XD
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda lucky you!
 
4:04 PM
Speaking of cleaning...
@Tinkeringbell it's matte and I need to clean anyway 😅
 
4:57 PM
@Petəíŕd The Spring Wizard well, need big house when having three kids. Living on my own, or just with a partner probably would have found something much smaller. :)
Before marriage I indeed lived in small apartments, one was half the size of my current, and with two other roommates. Good times. :P
@JourneymanGeek still too early to know based on that alone, and if this is the same person, looks fine-ish, just pretty lost in SE.

No idea why mod doesn't just nuke this spammer off the site, and instead posting useless comments. It's obvious that's their website, and spammers never reply.
This one was just more patient than most.

@Marco if your medium is basic enough, water will lose its hydrogen to become the hydroxyl anion.
So in this hypothetical, removing water from Earth would involve a meteor or something with an incredible amount of a very strong base.
In another hypothetical, an incredible source of energy could dissociate water molecules into hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen radicals. In the former case, the bond breaks and oxygen gets wll the electrons, in this one, the hydrogen ends up with one electron and water with another.
This energy source would probably not be able to penetrate deep into the oceans.
In all these scenarios, removing a hydrogen from every molecule of water on Earth would happen long long after every living thing has already died, so it'd be moot
 
@M.A.R. good, so we won't suffer.
 
Yes, it gives me great joy that of all the methods of dying, having the water in my body convert into something else will never happen
It's a bit of a philosophical question about identity, but most chemists develop the mindset that conjugate acids and bases aren't really different species, because proton transfer happens very very quickly, in nanosecond scales, and fully.
 
@M.A.R. who knows.... weirder things happened. Like humans appearing here on Earth.
:P
 
I.e. a hydroxyl anion isn't much different from water, you just have to adjust the pH.
Lactate and lactic acid in your body are not different. They're at this dynamic equilibrium that's dependent on pH.
Free radicals are much different though. They don't just normally pop up, especially when it comes to water
 
7:19 PM
@M.A.R. pity.
 
In most cases, the initial thing that gives you cancer is probably a hydroxyl radical that reacts with the tumor suppressor genes in your DNA
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda no u pity
 
yay
Shadow The Pity Wizard!

All of those had obvious spam, which a mod edited out.
This site is heaven for spammers.
Spam and get a friendly mod to edit it out, perhaps give you a gift.
 
what we mods do for good content ...
 
If I'd care a bit more I'd try doing something but meh... they can have their site become pile of spam.
