here's yet another reason why old macs are awesome. you can pick up an old 27"imac, more than ten years old, for €112.50. it will have 8gb of ram, a good as new magic keyboard and a 500gb ssd. it will only run high sierra (= no dark mode but ok) but get this you can plug an old macbook air into it (which will run mojave so dark mode) and use it as a display omg i love this world and this life and i love old machines which are undervalued by people because they are stupid and so they sell them cheap even though the new machines they desire are less functional than the old machines.

A non-isolated system is permitted to decrease its local entropy as long as there are larger offsets elsewhere.
noted.
if you lie completely still, the cost of living is around 1500 kilocalories per day – the amount of energy it would take to heat eighty litres of water from tap temperature to that of a scalding bath. Most is spent on homeostasis, the processes by which our bodies stay more or less exactly as they are. Homeostasis is sometimes used as a way of defining life itself: living beings can maintain steady internal states despite changeable external conditions.
1500 calories a day for lying perfectly still?! that's an outrage.

Dit probleem werd toegelicht door een woordvoerder van de Jagersvereniging. Een jager als expert laten spreken over herten en andere dieren is natuurlijk net zoiets als de Vereniging voor Geweld tegen Vrouwen aan het woord laten…
