Edit : My first post to blow up. Crazy.
Bottom Line Up Front: Space Marines have a organ called the Omophagea which lets them get memories by consuming DNA/RNA or proteins associated with memory^1. The Imperium issues certain rations made out of material that includes human corpses^2. In the modern era even after meat is processed and cooked you can usually get enough recognizable DNA out of it to tell what the meat is from^3.
So if the Space Marines had to eat Corpse Starch Rations they might actually get the memories of the person who was ground up into the food.
So at some point this conversation could have taken place.
Brother Numenis: Hey guys you should try this ration bar. This guy managed to beat a Necron in a fist fight then died when he tripped in the shower.

Anyone still at the processing phase for their PUA payment this week? I applied Sunday morning and I'm still processing 5 days later.
me: I can't hear what you're saying when the radio is on. Could you turn it down for a second?
person: Fine, I won't tell you then.
me: oh no I want to listen, I just have difficulty hearing when there's background noise.
person: [continues to refuse to repeat themselves]
I am not choosing to ignore you! I just need to reduce other inputs so I can listen. Why is that so hard to understand!?
I got this when booting up monster hunter after deleting my cache and letting steam download them again.
At my job, I am juggling keeping our development pace going for the project I'm assigned to while making improvements to our workflow.
I figured out that you can dump a .csv file of a waveform from an oscilloscope, and it is over a million rows. Python is too slow, because I only have access to a dual core 4 GB machine (I am thinking about writing a persuasive letter about getting a cheap 16 GB ram machine with secure, local-only remote access for the entire engineering team, probably either a quad core Intel or Ryzen 3600) so I was wondering what would be best:
*Learn some R lang basics? C++ was the first thing that came to mind because I figured I could just declare 300-400 MB of memory, placing the whole .csv file in 200 and the rest of the program in 100-200? This is the second link that comes up for me when I google "C++ .csv".... keep reading on reddit ➡
Saw this thread earlier had the idea of a food processing DLC to make consumables more important and add a good bit of content to the game.
Food processing DLC
Few quests to unlock new work benches.
Canning station and drying rack
Hang meats/fruits on rack to dry them, turned them into dried version for longer storage
Spend tin/aluminum at canning station to can all sorts of consumables.
And it wouldn't even take that much resource IMO. Could retrofit foundation or even raider NPCs for the questing. And how hard would it be to make a new assets for those two new work benches?
Idk, i suppose it's a pipe dream like all things i want for f76 lol
Is anyones weekly claim still Processing in MA? I usually get it deposited Wednesday morning. Wondering if this has anything to do with the holiday Monday. Thank you
I've been working with streaming log processing systems for the last 5 months. There are ~50 services that all use JSON. JSON has made the pipeline very difficult to work with and scale. I have found all its issues stem from JSON being schema on read. JSON lacks:
I've found that protobuf (or equivalent) addresses all these issues, and makes logging sane, which I write about here:https://medium.com/dm03514-tech-blog/scaling-logging-jsons-not-enough-f6920cc2788e

Now, I'm no math whiz, so please correct me if I'm wrong, but I just did a back-of-the-napkin calculation this morning when I was drinking my coffee and the results are so disturbing I nearly spat out my coffee.

Hello everyone! I got a few encouraging replies about a food processing specific thread, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I more than welcome anyone outside of the meat processing realm to provide any updates they might have (since my career is within the meat processing world, some of my links will be more meat focused.) Bear with me, as this is my first mega post!
I'll try to include industry links and mainstream news links. If there's anything that has a paywall, leave me a comment and I can post a TL;DR version! A lot of what I'm finding will be US specific, but I'll try to include international news as I see it. Also, if there are repeats of things found throughout r/supplychain, I apologize.
If you are in the US and are looking for a local source for meat, please check out the AAMP website and find your state's affiliate site. Many of the state websites have "find a butcher" lists or are providing updates on their... keep reading on reddit ➡
I come from a very conservative family whose comments are very racially and politically inconsiderate and sometimes offensive. I'm thankful for an education that taught me to think on my own but respect my parents' right to their own opinion. But as a result, I've never had a political role model or even people around me that incite productive political conversations, just a lot of political agendas thrown at me without good rationalization.
But I'm watching the news and seeing countless videos, and I just have this deep, sickening feeling in my heart and stomach. I see officers being attacked and having things thrown at them, and conversely see protestors being violently handled; I see news reporters putting themselves in danger just to show the world what's happening in this chaotic mess.
I don't know how to process everything going on but all I can say is that my heart hurts: I understand how awful the racial injustice is but I'm getting a real sickening Purge-vibe from all of the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am a programmer and I am interested in machine learning and image processing (My hours were reduced, I have time to learn!). Some tutorial was about manipulating a picture of "Lenna". Googling gave me a wikipedia page explaining the origin of the image. She was a playboy model in 1973. There weren't enough subject. They had to choose a sexualized woman. She is not even the first woman to be used this way. It is even in scientific papers! As a woman in programming, it is really frustrating that a part of the community is so sexist, and the other part let it go. No wonder so few woman choose this field!
Before tearing it to shreds I’ve only been producing for 4-5 months, so don’t expect some nujabes in this shit.
From day 1 of beat making my main aim/goal is to release a project, something I can call mine, and this is the culmination of it, hence the name PROCESSING, as I learn the art of producing music.
Any constructive criticism will be nice, I’m trying to grow as much as possible at the moment so that will help a lot.
Finally, thank you to all of the kind people on here who have helped me the past couple of months with all my questions and shit. Yall have been the best :)
Edit: thank you for all the nice words, I really appreciate it :)
I've been hanging out with this guy who I like a lot. We have a ton of fun together and we vibe really well. We spent the whole weekend hanging out with each other basically all day every day and after a while I needed to be alone with myself just to have some healthy space. But for some reason I felt like I had to push that down and suffer through being grumpy and resentful for two days. I felt miserable the whole time and was noticing that I was feeling pity for that miserable feeling and ruminating on it. I was frustrated, confused, and lost but I didn't do what I needed to handle it.
Tonight I invited him to stay the night again because we had a little bit of fun and I had just enough in me to neglect my need for space a little longer and keep trying to have fun. It was like I was also trying to please him and put on a happy face and say "yes of course I want you here I love being with you!" when I was actually feeling "I need to take care of myself, my responsibilities, and... keep reading on reddit ➡
It has been nearly 7 months. She got an email back last week stating that they aren’t processing ANY permits due to COVID-19 and they don’t have an ETA for permits. It could be a week or months. Do you know of anything we could do? Contact state police? Thanks.
I just completed an application for additional permits and I thought I'd share my experience. This is an overview of the processing time for applying for an initial FID and Pistol Permits in the township of Nutley, NJ (07110) for anyone from my town who is thinking of applying. Our PD is 2A friendly. Det. Gus Formato is the point of contact for all firearms ID/Permit processing.

I've been following this case for the past 3-4 months now. Every morning I would visit this sub to see any updates on the kids, even if it's something small. Today, I'm just so sad to see ever thing happening to quickly and I'm sure none of ya'll were expecting this. I knew they weren't in this world but I was holding out hope that maybe there were in a bunker or something. I'm utterly disgusted at Chad. He probably has a grave digging fantasy or something. I was bawling my eyes when I heard the news that two remains were found. I think I'm going to take a break from true crime, at least for now because this is just devastating and the outcome is never good. When I heard the new that the FBI was investigating chad's property, I thought it was going to be some clues like electronic evidence or something. I didn't expect that they would find human remains.
I finally emailed the SBA this morning and explained my situation. Got am email back a couple of hours ago. It said they would forward it on to a Loan Officer. Just checked the website. Now reads "Approved"!!!
So, I’m getting into genealogy due to all this COVID-19 free time. I’m African-American, and interviewing older relatives. I’m not sure if this is correct, but I’m building what I call a “draft tree” in Ancestry and editing it. Some examples include grandparents and great-aunts/uncles being married multiple times, but family members have requested only including the spouses related to my biologically. No big deal. I’m trying to be as respectful as possible as such things can stir up bad memories.
Funny enough, my great-grandpa was always just “crazy” and ignored by everyone. His grandkids (my dad, aunts, and uncles) told me that no one knew he was sick, he died without anyone claiming his body, and he’s buried on Hart Island in NYC. Insofar, the records are showing my great-grandpa MAY have died in Buffalo, NY. Apparently, there is an asylum in Buffalo. As being as respectful as possible, I would love to figure out where he truly passed and where he’s truly buried.

New shortage? We have been raising hens for eggs for years. With the current unrest we decided it’s time to start also raising our own poultry, and processing some of our birds for meat. My wife and I have both done this the old fashioned way, but decided to splurge on a mechanical chicken plucker to make the process easier. It took us 2 hours of searching to find a company who had one for sale, and even then it’s on back order with a shipping delay of late June. I guess I should have known when all the reports of chicks being sold out this spring, that next would be the equipment for processing chicken. As much as I try, to be ahead of the curve, I missed this one. What do you think the next shortage will be?
