    I’m glad to have done my part. I wonder if wallstreetbets will get their wish of $100 per share.

    On another note, is what’s taking place here illegal? The subreddit is actively trying to manipulate the market. But I don’t see how you could actually convict someone given the size of the crowd.

    I was actually kind of shocked when I brought this up with a college math professor and he said he’d never thought about it.

    Sorry. The momentum is in the other direction. Cities will increasingly outweigh rural counties. Texas will flip to blue.

    I usually don't do this because I'm sure it's less healthy, but you can double fry tofu for extra crisp.

    Apply corn starch -> Deep fry -> Apply corn starch -> Deep fry

    And of course more sauce will reduce crispiness.

    It seems you're already doing this correctly, but I also recommend corn starch over potato starch for maximum crisp.

    I really like making crispy tofu stirfry with gochujang sauce. I add tons of mushrooms, peppers, and bok choy. Serve with brown jasmine and you’ll be full for the rest of the day.

    Drives can "fix" bad sectors by marking them unusable. This eats away at your drive's total usable capacity. It may come with a buffer of extra sectors for this use case, but if a lot are becoming unusable you can't trust the drive to reliably do its job.

    I am glad for it and would be glad for them to go further. But at the same time I welcome new regulations that could make communication platforms treated like utilities.

    Can you use a tool like WinMTR (or just normal old MTR) to see where the latency is coming from? You'll want to pick a destination that matches the servers you'll be playing games on. My guess is that you'll see the latency picks up far outside of the hops you control. Even so, there's a chance you can force an alternate route to get better latency.

    What do you guys think about this recent string of events? Trump and some of his cronies have been banned from Twitter. Reddit has banned a few far-right insane subreddits. Parler is getting nuked. We're seeing only the most fringe sites get silenced - or more realistically, pushed into the shadows. Should this have happened sooner? Now that it's happening, should the scope get expanded?

    I know personally I'd love to see everything from Parler to Fox News to Murdock-owned local news shut down. But even though I'm convinced those media outlets are a net negative for the world I feel uncomfortable with the elimination of even such extreme ideologies. The US is not in a stable state where we can be sure that this year's push against fascism will hold. Even if my dream of a propaganda free state were to come true, it's easy for the silenced to use that as an excuse to retaliate should things swing back in their favor.
