A normal adult will die after eating 480 bananas because of potassium overdose. submitted by davidman to science

Prisoner072385 0 points 33 points (+33|-0) ago

It makes me a little bit sad that this kind of click-bait bullshit competes for my attention in the Science subverse. But, by all means, lets continue to click through page after page of advertisements; while the data certainly isn't sourced, at least the stock placeholder images are. The fine people at Swag XP must need the ad revenue to continue conducting such fine research projects.

Still, number 22 is my favorite factoid about Bananas. There is a fun, and unofficial, unit of measurement called the Banana Equivalent Dose, that counts the rough Potassium 40; which is around 0.1 µSv. Potassium 40 is not bio-accumulative, though, so it is accepted that bananas pose no danger for adult human consumption. The same is true for potatoes, sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts and so on, that also have radioactive properties.

What's the hardest open-world game you know of? submitted by profanion to gaming

Prisoner072385 0 points 16 points (+16|-0) ago

How do you define open world? If you're willing to stretch the definition a little bit, I'd say Dwarf Fortress without a doubt. Dwarf Fortress is the most punishing game I have ever played; and it allows for some of the most creative moments I've ever experienced in gaming.

After Nine Years Of Censorship, Canada Finally Unmuzzles Its Scientists | Techdirt submitted by david_j to science

Their findings, opinions and so on. It was an Orwellian chapter in the intersection of Canadian politics and federal scientists and librarians. People could and did lose their jobs for publicly expressing viewpoints contrary to/critical of the then conservative government's policy on things like energy policy, climate change and more.

U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality. submitted by Prisoner072385 to Worldnews

Prisoner072385 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Look at all the happy people. I wonder how many awkward conversations are going to resume now that "we're not getting married until everyone else (in the US) can." Welcome, same-sex couples. Now you can be just as miser I mean, blissfully happy as the rest of us. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a long list of chores* to do.

Do you pick your nose? submitted by Rusti to askgoat

Prisoner072385 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Yes. It's an unappealing habit, but it's born of necessity. I have a really hard time concentrating if my nose is itchy or my breathing is impaired. I do what I need to to clear my nostrils and then immediately wash my hands. What I'd like to know is does anyone else block their nostrils with tissue paper occasionally? I find the warming sensation in my sinuses very comforting. Sometimes I shape the tissue paper into tusks and behave like a walrus in an attempt to get my wife to laugh - with mixed results. Life is a bizarre juxtaposition of the serious and the absurd.

Kurzgesagt: The European Refugee Crisis and Syria Explained. submitted by Prisoner072385 to videos

Prisoner072385 2 points -1 points (+1|-2) ago

I think those are fair points. I did mention vaguely that the video - and its subsequent parade of different points - are not necessarily completely representative of what I believe. In Canada, the media has been doing its best to assuage what's been identified as Islamophobia by comparing the Syrian refugees, including potential non-Syrian opportunists, to the Boat People of Vietnam who immigrated during the 1970s. Due to cultural and religious differences, I'm not certain that the comparison is appropriate. Moreover, wages - and consequently I assume funding for social programs - have stagnated since that point in the western world. It could be that I'm simply being fearful of remote possibilities; however, a lot of this situation feels like breaking new ground.
