  1. The idea that the duty should solely lie on the consumer for the environment is really a misdirection tactic by the small number of producers who are contributing the most to pollution. Food for thought.
  2. It's a race to see if the pandemic will end before I get a graphics card.
  3. That's because cStringIO isn't part of python anymore. That said, the email library is built-in in python 3. So you just need to use import statements as demonstrated here. You don't need to install it using pip.
  4. If it can play games at 4K it can probably play them at 1080p or handheld mode 720p effortlessly, meaning no more frame rate dips whoo.
  5. Probably not unless it asked you to fill in details and you did.
  6. They will run on a potato. A potato's worth, whatever is required to run the OS really. I guess 8GB is a standard these days. No, because the programs you'll be writing won't take up a lot of space. Some of the programs you will be using may, though. But it's nothing like a game machine. I was able to turn my 64 GB chromebook into a development machine with IDEs installed and such so I mean... I highly, highly recommend against this. Use Windows, or macOS if it falls into your lap. Worst case, install Linux. Don't use ChromeOS. If you
  7. I'm simply applying common sense that if you burn fuel at a power plant and convert it to electricity, transmit that over power cables, through transformers, and into your house to charge your electric car batteries, it's going to be less efficient than if that same energy was directly converted to mechanical energy in your car itself, and that these subjective factors should be considered before making blanket claims such as "They are objectively better than gas cars." since this very well may not be the case. I did a lot of hand-waving in my initial post to focus more on the actu
  8. I love me some sushi. Also I cook squid, octopus, and the other aquatics. Grilled salmon is
  9. In terms of environmental friendliness, in most cases electric cars are worse than a modern combustion engine. True, the car itself doesn't have any emissions, but its power generation is being outsourced to your neighborhood power plant. In all likelihood this is coal or natural gas, which then gets converted to electrical via steam turbines, then sent over power-lines to your house (which is also a decrease in efficiency). Burning the fuel at the source (the vehicle itself) is simply a more efficient process since it involves a single energy conversion. Driving a small, energy efficient car
  10. In general, the overall production quality is tends to be higher because it tends to be produced by actual famous groups such as Maximum the Hormone (in the case of Death Note's 2nd OP). A good comparison would be "Try Everything" by Shakira used in Zootopia. A large number of people go out and listen to these songs for its own enjoyment without being fans of the anime it may have aired in. You may be interested to know that Japan's music industry is the second only to the US's in terms of actual billions of dollars, and isn't second place by any unreasonable margin. That said, the
  11. The RTX 3000 series is fake??? Everything make sense now...
  12. I'm a cook not a baker. I've tried to make my own noodles before but I'm really bad at that.
  13. So they really did make more than five of them. Heh...
  14. I've been privy to the unofficial discussions of some candidate selection. I'll tell you, it happens all the time. 9 employers out of 10. Depending on the job of course, but if you're breaking into a job under represented by your demographic it's an uphill battle. This may or may not work out in your favor (for instance, you may be hired because you will fulfill an employer's diversity initiative). The color of your skin, your heritage, the way you talk, your gender, it all matters even though it shouldn't. And there will never be any official record of it anywhere, but
