@eeterrific@Kidsandliz Fun fact about dock (the weed): if you crush the leaves and rub them on the affected area, it will relieve the sting of stinging nettle. Often dock weed grows in the same area as nettle (at least in the PNW).
@heartny Depending on who you read it is 9-10" long and around 3x4 the other directions. It’s on amazon too and they don’t quite agree with the size. I am thinking one measured it with the loop and the other only measured the actual dock.
@ciabelle@heartny Ahhh the long gone missing baby arm! Yes!!! I wonder what meh did with their’s. Hey @koolhandjoe you didn’t steal meh’s baby arm did you? It has been MIA for ever and ever. Maybe you can provide them with another one for, you know, old time’s sake and entertainment purposes. Hey @snapster. You need to order a baby arm from @koohandjoe for nostalgia’s sake for the write ups.
@somf69 not sure if this is a serious question or not, but they recently sent a new device to Elliot @ The Retro Future for review. doesn’t seem like something a company would do if they were going out of business. he just posted the review video yesterday.
@somf69 AFAIK, healthy but experiencing the same overstock on freshly arrived delayed older merch as a lot of others. When your long-term build orders are shaped around a 60-90 day lead plus transit, and the in-transit time quadruples (or more) into 90-180 days, you end up with surges that you have neither warehouse nor customer orders to push it into.
This does not seem to be putting much good stuff on the shelves at places like BigLots, though.
Even when you hear silence you can still hear your heart beat. When I worked in NW Ontario about a 2 week canoe paddle from James Bay, when everything was covered with snow it was so quiet that when you stood still outside you heard no noise except your heart beat. Well, and on occasion, the sounds of ice shifting in the lake beds. That sounds like when you blow (with your lips really close together and your chin back a bit) into a glass pop bottle. That haunting noise would go zipping down the lake along the cracks in the ice.
@radi0j0hn Back in the '70s, long before the modern fad for thumpitaboom noise, I had a sound system in my car that was capable of actual pain-inducing levels without distorting. Once in a while, I would pull up next to somebody that had their factory radio cranked to “unintelligible+6”, and I’d slip on the hearing protector before running the volume up and dropping in a cassette of the massed pipes and drums doing Scotland the Brave at Jubilee. Or, if I was in a really adventurous mood, I’d go for William Tell, dropped at the Lone Ranger point just as the light changed, with accompanying drivetrain effects courtesy of nonstandard nearly-everything-under-the-hood. (But none of it was chrome plated, and the car looked stock from the outside, which confused people no end.)
I LOVE that.
I once lived in the bottom half of a house, and the people upstairs let a bratty younger brother stay in their half when they went on a trip. He started blasting some sort of loud party rock, so I put something like Beethoven’s 9th on at top volume. Your story is much more satisfying, though!
The universe (or meh) is spying on me! The speaker I’ve used in the shower for forever and a day I suspect has torn as anything remotely bassy distorts and tears now. I suspect the cone has started to tear. And here comes meh with a new waterproof speaker! Gonna have to grab at least one, although the idea of pairing 2 for true stereo is enticing…
@Stormchaser It’s funny - the shower speaker I’ve been using for 8 years just died last week, and I bought a replacement from Amazon. Yesterday. Already opened it and started using it, so I don’t want to return it. But sheesh. The timing…
@donver it’s a bit sus when sellers omit it. Some folks like me have made the switch over to usb-c and don’t get accessories that use micro USB. Anker’s newest stuff has moved over to usb-c as well. Could be a reason why this speaker hasnt sold out it’s remaining inventory.
@carlosps@GLaDOS Presumably this means that at 15 cm, they’re sure it won’t leak. Between 15 cm and 1 m, they think it probably won’t leak. Beyond 1 m, they think it probably will leak. Since it’s not going to do much good for anybody when it’s submerged, all of those are fairly irrelevant. Unless, of course, one drops it overboard. Or one has children who like to experiment with flotation and immersibility of objects.
I ordered two because of the pairing feature, they arrived yesterday and I’m quite impressed so far… Just thought I’d share since everyone hates on meh speaker offerings. Anker has been pretty great in my book.
