What did you learn from the internet today?

Dry ice sublimates at −78.5 C (−109.3 F)

Its enthalpy of sublimation is 571 kJ/kg (25.2 kJ/mol).

Actually that's two.

And you?

2. It's such an important issue what with the election approaching.

I'm disappointed that no candidate, that I know of, has let us know where they stand.

the DU Lounge.



I also learned that taterguy is not a dumbass.

5. Well, you can't say pu**y or d*ck on DU, and a whole bunch about porn.

porn frightens people and they think that nobody should have porns.

porns are like guns, I guess.

10. Well I knew about "the 'p' word" before today.

So somebody alerted on a post of mine where I opined that at least have of the teabaggers in a group picture were dicks and it was hidden.

The porn discussion comes up every so often, lately it's hugh.

You must soldier on, inserting rude language into the discourse.

It's just one of the details in this windowguard.




Just south of downtown Tucson.

Actually it was about the alleged pornification of librarians.

100 lb balls would have been a real problem at the US Open last weekend.

22. Ptah posted a reply to an OP I made in the Lounge today!

Mostly, I have been ignored at DU for years and have made maybe 40 OPs ever (and a handful in the Lounge) and never popular.

I am a teeth gritting and often disappointed Democratic Party member of 40 years (since became of age to register and vote).

Today my impact on human consciousness via the internet is miniscule as usual but my spirit is a less than 3X per year (of 60 years and 25 years since usenet and email) inflamed about the insanity -- may we live in interesting times -- of the USA and World now. I'd go for happy and safe and in kin with Nature's God over interesting every day in my age.

I learned I was happy that Ptah responded to my post. Thank you.

26. It's nearly impossible to find a video on YouTube of the "single" version of Cat People

that was a hit for Bowie in the 80s. There are lots of videos of the song, but nearly all of them are some slow version, that was apparently in the film Inglorious Basterds (never seen it), not the huge wall of sound version I remember from high school. Makes me sad. I wanna put out a fire with gasoline, the way Bowie used to implore us to do. The new version of the song is just depressing. Makes you want to take prozac or something.

33. Windows 7 needs Vista software to operate the stuff that worked fine with XP

New PC has Win 7, old has XP. I like windows 7 but trying to reinstall all the utilities I had on my old PC ( and getting them to work ) has been quite aggravating.

as it turns out, all the civilian targets were in China, so no one bothered to prosecute him as a war criminal.

They're little fighter jets, but an actual measurement of their speed is not an easy thing to locate.
