Some of the male guppies in my tank are starting to develop orange spots on their bodies. Apparently females like more orange males, as the pigment, carotenoids, can only be acquired from the food they eat, and thus a more orange male implies better physical health. Tagging @RorzNZon this.
Also, some of the females look like the Pregnant Guppy. That's exciting, since I may have fry soon. I don't have a sponge filter for the tank, so I'll turn off the filter when I see fry.
I think the Rainforest Cafe takes the whole rainforest thing too far. This one time I was sitting there eating my chicken tenders and they bulldozed half the restaurant.

My middle school had a school news program where segments would be made by multiple groups of people, then edited together to make the broadcast. We used Canon T5i and T6i cameras to film (with SD card slots). So two of the most important rules to follow were to 1. eject the SD card from the computer before removing it and 2. never edit off the SD card There were multiple instances where people just completely ignored both of those rules, and yes, Jared (not real name), pulling out the SD card when Premiere Pro is exporting your completed project after you finished editing on the S

The Nurtec ads have finally subsided. Now I'm getting this ad:Spoiler

Tom's Hardware posted a teardown of the new M1-equipped Macbooks and posted this image as the M1:Spoiler
...that's a PMIC. Did they really miss the biggest, flashiest chip on the board?Spoiler
This video is pretty nice:
Continued from the previous two statuses:
This pair of forcepts look nice, until you realize that this this is basically just two pieces of steel wire bent and flattened at strategic areas and then riveted together. Like, it works, but it just looks cheap.
Some pH paper, coffee filters, and a few index cards, because that goes in a $239.95 lab kit...
And last but not least--here are the fancy chemicals. One of the bottles is distilled water. Yes, distilled water in a $239.95 set...
The textbook is also pretty nice, but it's not that interesting as to include a photo besides in the first image.
Is this kit nice? Yes. Is it worth $239.95? Probably not. I'll give it a 3.5/5-star rating.
Also, thanks to Quality Science Labs for making this kit. Customer support tells me that they've been working around the clock to build these kits for customers.
Continued from a previous status:
Aforementioned noninteresting bag:
And a multimeter, again of passable quality:
Distilled water squirt bottle. It has a design flaw where, if the nozzle is filled with water, it acts as a siphon and allows water to flow out even if the bottle is not squeezed:
Disintegrating steel wool that fortunately came in a resealable bag:
Here's a 24- and 96-well reaction plate. They stack loosely on top of each other, which is good for organization:
And here are some beakers, a scoopula, and an old-looking wet-erase marker:
Some laboratory glassware and plasticware:
They also included some disposable containers (ignore the glass one in the bottom row) and a foam block for some reason. I paid $240 for this...
Onto the next status, because I've yet again exceeded this forum's 20 MB limit.
meth labAP Chem kit arrived today!
Here's the first thing I saw when I opened it. Some bottles got knocked around in transit, but everything is in good condition.
And here's all the contents of the lab kit spread out on my desk, which is still full of glass shards:
Here's the stopwatch/timer that looks like it was made in 1995. The build quality is terrible, btw. The buttons are extremely wiggly.
The scale is pretty nice though. It has some bulk to it and it came with a nice phone credit card holder and cleaning cloth:
Here's some nickel, copper, and zinc and some sandpaper (not that I needed any more copper):
And here's a thermometer of acceptable quality:
Some plastic stir rods, a measuring spoon, some Q-tips, and chromatography paper. Nothing interesting here.
