Also in curious as to the temperature change in the wine, this is a lot handier than going to my shed, driving a screw in, then using pliers to pull the cork out Everytime I forget I still haven't bought a cork screw

It takes about 50 lbs to pull out a wine cork.

,75 inch diameter opening

Area .44 sq inch

50 / .44 = 115.9

155.9 psi

Sorry for using land a man on the moon units

I don't think it's creating any pressure. What it's doing is heating the glass which expands and let's the cork out as it's pushed upward by the lip of the cork which is already surfacing.

The ads are getting smarter

Obviously the values for population are massive approximations so this won’t be completely accurate

Just about high enough to understand Rick and Morty.

Technically your answer is accurate to two significant figures. Ie Hawking's IQ is 1.5E+11

Didn't he say people who boast about IQ are losers?

Population (billions) from either google or wikipedia

China 1.379

India 1.324

Indonesia -.004 for Western New Guinea .259

Pakistan .193

Bangladesh .142

Japan .127

Philippines .103

Vietnam .089

Thailand .064

Myanmar .054

South Korea .051

Malaysia .029

here we hit 3.812 billion, which puts us above the 3.8 halfway mark of 7.6 we needed to hit. And we still have the entirety of the below countries as well as some partials from central Asia and Eastern Russia.

It's a little difficulty to say with full confidence cause statistics aren't taken annually, like the 7.6 is a number we hit in 2017 but with .134 billion more people in the countries below and the hundreds of thousands if not millions in the partial countries, it's most likely the statement in this picture is accurate.

Nepal .028

North Korea .024

Taiwan .023

Sri Lanka .021

Cambodia .014

Hong Kong .007

Laos .006

Singapore .005

Mongolia .003

East Timor .001

Bhutan .001

Macao .001

Wow

It’s crazy but it kind of makes sense with massive countries like Russia and Australia being much less densely populated than a lot of the countries inside the circle.

It seems close, but I think it’s right.

Global population is 7.6 billion so we need 3.8 billion: (Keeping it in billions because I feel like it) China 1.4 billion India 1.3 billion Indonesia .25 billion Bangladesh .2 billion Japan .15 billion Philippines .1 billion Koreas combined .1 billion Vietnam .1 billion Thailand .07 billion

Add in Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, etc. and you’ll find that extra couple hundred million.

If you have insurance, then you won't pay the 40k...

Do most insurance companies cover $40000 hip replacements?

Every plan I've ever seen has an annual out-of-pocket maximum, meaning that you won't pay more than that, regardless of what the injury is. Something like a hip replacement is going to be covered by every plan, so that's not an issue.

My OOP max this year is $3,000, I think. So that means if I get two broken hips, lose an arm, have a baby, and get cancer all this year, I'm out $3,000.

Oy, this guy again...

Similarly, there are those who, for the cost of a set of dentures in the US, fly themselves and their spouse to the Philippines for a week and receive a a full set of dentures (which normally takes weeks in the US).

If you're wondering, in my experience, the doctors, dentists, and nurses are considered very competent in The Philippines.

Why would anyone use this crappy image host? I see it pop up more and more.

Same with most other places in South-East Asia and Eastern Europe.

Go to the Ukraine for dental work, and still save a ton versus the European prices (dental is still usually partially subsidized).

There was a TIL not long ago illustrating how educated the writers of this show are. For anyone interested:

The writing staff held three Ph.D.s, seven master's degrees, and cumulatively had more than 50 years at Harvard University. Series writer Patric M. Verrone stated, "we were easily the most overeducated cartoon writers in history",

They still probably don’t understand Rick and Morty, though.

They also proved a thereom specifically for an episode of the show - http://theinfosphere.org/Futurama_theorem

I know this is a repost and people probably don't care, but those numbers weren't just chosen as arbitrarily large numbers whose difference was one; they could have made them much bigger if they wanted. This is special because it is exhibiting the prime factorization of 211 - 1, which is the smallest number that is one less than a prime power of two and not prime itself.

Primes of the form 2p - 1 are called Mersenne primes and they carry many nice properties. Said properties, for example, allow us to check for primality quicker than other numbers which is why the largest prime that we know of is always a Mersenne prime (and is expressed as above since writing it normally would require millions of digits).

Edit: haha this is basically the top comment on the other post, woops. I like math, so sue me.

Yes and no. The 91gbs speed number is based on their shadow network, which only connects a few select locations around the globe. It's not the 'internet' that we would normally think of, as it's primary purpose is only to move very large files from one NASA facility to another.

What if that file is the GTAV install?

sends file between coworkers

Drive read/write speeds would be the bottleneck

About as structurially sound as

But in all seriousness, If the balcony support beam was configured differently, I don't see why this wouldn't work as a real building. You would also need a frame of reference for how tall the structure is. Considering you can see the tops of other "Skyscraper" style buildings, I'm guessing pretty tall. The sides of the tower do not seems to be parallel, though, and would eventually meet if it was tall enough, which is my primary concern.

There would be hellacious structural loads, but nothing unsolvable with enough money and steel.

If someone wanted that built irl, it could be done.

Source:am engineer.

would eventually meet if it was tall enough, which is my primary concern.

This is all I could find

It seems the sides are parallel.

Actually, people want this kind of stuff built, and it has been done:

This is from a previous post and user u/srappe:

Given a standard 53' trailer:

According to http://www.wbmcguire.com/links/Guides/TruckTrailerGuide.pdf, A 53' trailer has interior dimensions of 47'6" x 98.5" x 107.375" and a capacity of 3,489 cubic feet.

A 24 ct. box of Ramen Noodles has dimensions of 15" x 12" x 12" or a volume of 1.25 cubic feet.

u/Goldencaramel pointed out that I need to take in account for the pallets.

Pallets are 40" x 48" x 5" roughly. If the floor of the trailer has dimensions as listed above, you can fit 14 pallets lengthwise, and 2 width-wise. On the pallet itself, you can stack roughly 3 boxes of Ramen width-wise (40/12 = 3.33), 3 length-wise (48/15 = 3.2), and 4 height wise in order to be able to stack 2 pallets high in the truck (4*12 = 48). This gives the pallet, with the product a height of 53". Given the height of a trailer is 107.375", you can stack two pallets on top of each other with this packing method.

Therefore, you can fit 56 (14 x 2 x 2) pallets, each carrying 36 (3 x 3 x 4) boxes of Ramen into the truck

This means the maximum number of 24 ct. boxes of Ramen you can fit in a 53' trailer with pallets is 2016 (56 x 36)

These boxes sell at ~$12 at my local BJ's which means that the trailer would have a consumer value of about $24,192 (2016 * $12)

Now according to several people, you wouldn't stack pallets containing a product so fragile on top of one another. Also, according to a fellow freight broker, you can only fit 26 pallets in a trailer.

Re-do the math for a more "real-world" cost estimate and you come out to:

2636$12 = $11,232

Apologies for the repost

No, it's not a repost. The one I linked to was just asking how many Ramens can a semi truck hold. Your post is different just same answer.

Oh! Cool

there are 8 integers between 2 and 9 inclusive

probability of getting any particular combination of four random numbers in this range is (1/8)4 = 0.024%

edit: there's a lot of discussion about the random number generator in a ti-84. for your perusal, here is somebody who dug up the paper describing the method used (and verified it through emulation!), which is called a linear congruential random number generator. (actually this specific implementation appears to feed the output of one such generator into another, i think mostly to extend the period.) here is a direct link to that paper (implementation in figure 3). apparently the most common random number generators today are called 'mersenne twister' random number generators. the paper says the linear congruential random number generator used in the ti-83 has a period of 2.30484 * 1018 which is approximately 261 , whereas the most common mersenne twister implementation has a period of 219937 - 1. meaning that values will repeat each other every 261 times you use the random number generator on a ti-83. unless they're seeded with the same value at the factory, which many have suggested and would make me kinda sad.

A lot of these calculators have a seeded "random" number generator. It is pseudo-random and if you cleared the memory (reset the devoce) it would probably do it again

edit sudo -> pseudo

Solved! ✅
