What's been your favourite headset for gaming so far?
  • I'm surprised nobody has mentioned https://www.rtings.com/headphones

    They specifically analyze headphones for comfort and audio quality among many other qualities.

    They have a table view mode where you can filter down to exactly what kind of headphones you are interested in buying and then make a selection from the results set.

    I just purchased a pair of these a few weeks ago, and I love them: https://www.rtings.com/headphones/reviews/philips/fidelio-x2hr

    I specifically filtered down to headphones with a low latency wired connection by adding a column to the table view, and I didn't need an included microphone.

    If you must have a microphone included, the best headphones you can buy currently that have a low latency wired connection are the Astro A40's, but they had less than stellar treble I believe. Check the detailed review.

  • Anthony Daniels on the set of Star Wars, 1976
  • According to the top comment on YouTube:

    Fun fact: Anthony Daniels wrote this spot after doing some other PSAs. He told them he'd like to do an anti-smoking one, and they said that if he wrote it, they'd shoot it.

    Perhaps he felt guilty, and he didn't want kids following in his footsteps

  • What did your parents refrigerate? Mine refrigerated bread.
  • This is the first I've heard of a butter bell. I've been leaving salted butter out for years, but I bought a glass food storage container with a snap on lid that is basically the exact size of a stick of butter. I suppose it's accomplishing almost the same thing, although a tiny amount of air does get inside especially as the stick is eaten.

  • Pity, really.
  • To be fair, the overwhelming majority of people regardless of age don't know what LaTeX or markdown are. Not the best examples. I'm a millennial with a 4 year STEM degree and I maybe used LaTeX once because it was required, and before Discord became a thing, I'd never heard of markdown. Most people who use Discord probably don't even know it supports markdown.

  • Stone Rule
  • I mocked his position and delivery actually because I said he also has poor reading comprehension. I read their entire chain of comments before replying, and it was evident @[email protected] was having issues reading and understanding the messages @[email protected] was sending.

    TIL eating 1 gram polar bear liver can be fatal due to an overdose of vitamin A that makes your skin fall off

    animals.howstuffworks.com Will I die if I eat polar bear liver?

    If your favorite diner's blue plate special is ever sauteed polar bear liver, you may want to stick with salad. This meal can cause symptoms far beyond indigestion.

    Will I die if I eat polar bear liver?

    > A healthy human liver contains 575 international units (IU) of vitamin A per gram while a polar bear's liver contains between 24,000 and 35,000 IU per gram. Compare that to the tolerable upper level of vitamin A intake for a healthy adult human: 10,000. Signs of toxicity generally occur when approximately 25,000 to 33,000 IU are consumed.

    > Illness severity depended on how much liver the explorers consumed, but symptoms typically included drowsiness, sluggishness, irritability, severe headache, bone pain, blurred vision and vomiting. While milder cases merely involved flaking around the mouth, some accounts reported cases of full-body skin loss. Even the thick skin on the bottoms of a patient's feet could peel away, leaving the underlying flesh bloody and exposed. The worst cases ended in liver damage, hemorrhage, coma and death.

    Does Voyager support saving images to your device?

    I tried browsing this community and using https://fedi-search.com/, but I can't find anything. Does anyone know if it can? If not, are there other applications that can?

    TIL upper atmospheric lightning is terrifying looking

    !Lightning sprites

    Lightning sprites literally look like something out of Neon Genesis Evangelion, and they're frankly horrifying! I can only imagine what ancient civilizations must have thought.

    Ocarina of Time is unplayable 😞

    I ran into this while taking geology courses at university, and the lack of attention to detail by the developers is frankly insulting.

    EDIT: The red line is what the developers did. The green line is what they should have done for realism. Explanation in the comments.
