    hmmm:

     
    I would have to guess neither of them because I have to assume that this picture is of a cross-sectional view of both people in an airtight room. Otherwise water would leak out through any air gaps in the room on the right, then there would be no more water left. Thus, both of them will suffocate to death due to lack of oxygen. 
     
    Next question?
     
    How on earth did these two men even get inside these airtight rooms constructed out of bricks? Were they placed inside and a structure was built around them?

    Built another battery pack today:

     
    specs: 
    52v 21.6AH 14S8P battery pack from Samsung 28A 18650 cells.
     
    improvements over previous pack:
     
    there was time with my old battery pack where I left the balance leads plugged in while connecting the two internal 7S packs in series. Doing this scorched the JST connectors and I had to replace them. 
     
    I went with longer length wires this time around for more flexibility and strain relief. 
     
    The biggest change though are each balance wire now is fused with a 2A PTC fuse. The cool thing with PTC fuses is if they fail, they are automatically resettable. 
     
    This is way if I fuck up again, the ptc fuses will go open circuit and I can just unplug everything and wait for the fuses to reset by themselves. 
     
    I really wanted to build another battery pack so I wouldn't have to wait an hour+ for my battery to recharge before going home from university. This way I can keep a fully charged battery pack ready to go at all times.

    I read an article today on mid evil torture methods, and it made me think about how primitive we used to be, but not for the reasons you may think. Not because we've moved on from said methods of torture, but because we can do worse, much worse than any method of torture done hundreds of years ago. 
     
    First of all, physical pain and death are very primitive, parochial methods of torture. Mostly because they are measurable, and always result in the satisfying release of death. Death ultimately results in a release of the pain, so in order to torture someone forever, we need the pain to be permanent, so we will have pain that lasts forever. Simple right?
     
    Or do we even want a torture method that is simply eternal pain? Because I think we can do worse than even that.
     
    First of all, we need to pretend that our hypothetical torture method is not limited to the laws of the universe. For example, lets pretend we could torture someone by granting them immortality, or they will burn in the core of a sun forever. Obviously these things are not possible since humans are not immortal and a person placed in the core of the sun will die as dictated by the laws of physics and thermodynamics. As such we need to ignore these artificial restrictions on our universe and pretend they don't exist so we can truly find, the worst ,possible, method of torture. 
     
    You see, something occurred to me when thinking about what torture is. Torture is pain, now that we all understand, that but what's the opposite of pain? Pleasure of course. The reason we experience pain to begin with is because it is opposite to what we expect, and that is something pleasurable. Now you may not think something as mundane as getting up in the morning and going to school can be considered a pleasurable experience, but that is exactly what I am taking about. 
     
    You see, the reason we are able to experience pain the the first place is because we are sentient, and we are human. Humans and all other organisms have what we call a free will. Organisms have a free will to choose to either experience pleasure, or pain, and this is how pleasure and pain are derived. The only reason we are able to feel pleasure in an event or action is because we have felt pain before, and the only reason we have pain is because we have experienced pleasure in comparison. Organisms are aware of their own existence and their own actions in the universe because of these two things. With only one of these two things, organisms do not have a free will and simply act as puppets. They cannot, and do not think, and do not seek the third variable I need to add in this discussion, knowledge. 
     
    The action of obtaining knowledge is through pleasurable and painful experiences. A scientist that seeks to cure cancer will consider a failed experiment a painful one, and a successful experiment a pleasurable one.  Thus, we can derive that pleasurable and painful actions are both in the pursuit of knowledge and without knowledge, pleasure and pain serve no purpose of existing. In essence, pleasure, pain and knowledge are all hand-in-hand. They are all required to give sentient beings and organisms the same goal, a goal of having a free will and able to choose its actions. If an organism could experience only pleasure or only pain, they will no longer have a free will, and thus will no longer have the ability to collect and obtain knowledge. Knowledge being the ultimate thing that gives all organisms a free will.
     
    Now let's circle back to the original question, what is the worst punishment?
     
    the worst punishment I believe is to be an entity who cannot experience pleasure nor pain. 
     
     But why?
     
    You see a being that cannot experience experience pleasure or pain cannot obtain knowledge. Thus they must live out their life (which could potentially be infinite) as simply matter. Matter that serves no purpose according to them, and will never have the privilege of experiencing knowledge. Knowledge being the entire point and a reason to have a free will.
     
    At the end of this, we can conclude that the worst torture method, is a lack of pleasure and pain to begin with. A torture method where An entity can experience neither pleasure nor pain cannot obtain knowledge and thus cannot have a free will, is the worst torture method possible. This is because said entity will never experience a purpose of existing. A need to seek out pleasure and pain the the first place, all in the pursuit of obtaining knowledge, the knowledge which serves to give entities free will and a need to exist.
     
    And as always, thinks for reading.

    What's the cheapest source you guys know of for solder? I normally use my solder for batteries so even the super crappy chinese stuff works fine for my needs. The cheapest I could find was this at 44 grams per dollar:

    The power is out, so we went to IHOP which happens to be packed. 
     
    I can can think of two ways for restaurants to solve this.
     
    1. Auction off the table that was just cleared to the highest bidder. Want to eat first? You pay to have a table available first.
     
    2. Provide discounts for customers who eat all their food within a time period. Obviously the customer is in no control of how long it takes to make the food, but they can control how long it takes to eat the food. Give say a 10% one time discount or a free meal for customers who eat all their food within 5 minutes or less.
     
    if a restaurant has thin profit margins, they they could choose to only deploy method one in order to exploit increased demand and increase profit margins. If a customer doesn't like it, they can go somewhere else.
