this is the best thing i’ve ever made

The mistake Abdul Dremali Makes is temporal ie one of rate of flow, you can not get unlimited bread sticks all at once as they would collapse in on themselves and form a black hole.  Effectively removing themselves from the universe and resulting in a basket too heavy for the average server.
By limiting how many bread sticks are available at one point they can have a constant stream of matter from the kitchen to the customer to the bathroom to various cleaning and recycling steps out in to the world and from the world back to the grain field to processing to the kitchen to the customer.  Making an unlimited amount of bread sticks (for at least the next 100 trillion years) with a limited amount of matter.

This How to Adult video is just SO So So So SO SO good. Thanks to Mike for making it.

In spy fiction, an electronic bug is usually small enough to fit inside a cellphone or to be sewn into the lining of a jacket an unwitting victim takes to the cleaners. In spy life, an electronic bug can be ten feet long.
The bug in this instance is an insulated metal reinforcing bar, one of dozens the KGB embedded in the walls of the U.S. embassy in Moscow, and thus a relic of one of the most awkward episodes in the U.S.-Soviet détente. In a purportedly helpful move, the Soviet Union offered to sell the United States precast concrete modules for the building, supposedly to ensure that it would be up to code, and the United States accepted. But mid-construction inspections beginning in 1982, including X-rays, revealed that the Soviets were turning the building into a huge antenna, with some bugs so sophisticated they could transmit each keystroke from the embassy’s IBM Selectric typewriters. After that, the top floors of the embassy were torn down and replaced by a secure “top hat” of four floors. The project took more than four years—and was done by American contractors.

is it your own skin though? As in you grew it, on your own body, from birth?

This skin was grown yes. On a human body. That is mine. I’m not a robot

dragons are mentioned in almost all cultures all across the world even before they had interaction with each other and you’re telling me they didn’t exist

wow it’s almost like some kind of large lizard-like creatures roamed the earth at some point and left fossilized remnants of their bodies behind that ancient cultures were trying to make sense of

Researcher shows that black holes do not exist

Black holes have long captured the public imagination and been the subject of popular culture, from Star Trek to Hollywood. They are the ultimate unknown – the blackest and most dense objects in the universe that do not even let light escape. And as if they weren’t bizarre enough to begin with, now add this to the mix: they don’t exist.

Correction: One physics professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has claimed to have demonstrated that black holes do not exist in a non-peer reviewed journal.

Like. Draw your own conclusions.

I hate to be homestuck trash at you, aria, but will you do a bit of the etymology on that supervoid’s name? Only my favorite character is named after it, and I want to know if it’s rooted in any mythology.

First of all, Eridan is terrible. But leaving that aside.

The Eridanus Supervoid is named after the constellation Eridanus, which the void lies beyond. The constellation was named by Ptolemy in the 2nd century, after the largest river in northern Italy, which is now known as the Po River. Ptolemy chose the name because the constellation looks like, you know, a long, twisting river. On some star maps, Eridanus is shown as a river flowing out of the cup poured by Aquarius, which I imagine is why Hussie chose it.
