Fiction, mental health
I tend to be most creatively active when laying in my bed in the dark. I also tend to get more depressed at night. I know for sure that these two things aren't connected, but they lead to a deep self criticism of my creative works, and deep insecurity. My already poor record of getting feedback becomes a black hole that pulls in all my fantasies, crushing them.
Raw meat, chicken, food, unskilled cooking
So! Two whole chickens, seasoned with salt, pepper, ginger, garlic, cumin, chili powder. Turned out alright. A little too close to the element because I forgot it needed to be lower. So there's less even cooking, but turned out good! I like the seasonings too. All with olive oil drizzled and rubbed on first so it would stick. Next time, less water in the pan, and further from the top of the oven.
@cult Any chance I could add Celestia emotes? hehehe
I know, just after joining and I'm already pinging the server owner, how rude!
2/x: why capacitors are dangerous:
a battery has a current limit, largely dictated by the chemistry. If it gives more current either the voltage drops or the battery sets itself on fire
a cap has no such limit. if a cap is shorted, the only limit to current is the resistance in the wire. If it stores 10V and the wire has 1mOh, the current will be 10kA. Nothing will stop that current from flowing. The wire will carry that energy until it evaporates. And in less than a few milliseconds, the energy has been dissipated and it's over. 10V at 10kA means in that time your cap is outputting 100 kilowatts of energy. Of course, the stored energy is only a few joules but for watts what matters is the time it takes to run through that.
also this fried my outdoor sensor. gonna have to build a new one.
