Ahh, didn't know..could have sworn they only test for lead, arsenic and ...(doh, a third I'm drawing a blank atm). Any idea where I can get the measurements for Texas in regards to fertilizer, pharmaceuticals, and household chemicals?


Now off the top of my head. But I suspect that if you contact the Texas Department of State Health Services or Texas Health Assessment and Toxicology Program they might help you.

Not, I know from experience that Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia all do this. So I am just inferring from the fact that of those states are the only states I have been involved in their "State Health Lab", and they all performed these analysis. I could be totally wrong, but there is so much government extra funding to these programs to check for those things in the water supply system; and it is literally only software and data analysis changes and throwing in a few more internal standards.

Edit: Me personally, I blame the toxic water (water standards in the US don't test for house hold chemicals or pharmaceuticals), toxic air and food supply (most meats, cheeses and milks are full of steroid and antibiotics).

Pretty much every state checks for those "house hold chemicals" and pharmaceuticals, etc, in the water supply; before processing (in the lakes and water reserves, etc).

If a person believes the earth is flat

Science if full of approximations and limitations. I am a scientists. I do not believe the earth is flat. But, over a small enough range, for piratical purposes the earth can be treated as flat. We make simplifications all the time in science.

I have no real point here, I am just saying; I can say the earth is flat and depending on my perspective and application I am correct within acceptable tolerance.

I love how people will use a paper towel to open the bathroom door, then sit back at their desk that has never been cleaned or dusted, and happily type away on their 3 year old keyboard that very likely has five different kinds of staph bacteria on it.

Creston

Yes. But unless other people are using my keyboard or running their penis over my keyboard; it is different.

When your hand touches your penis then the door handle and I touch the door handle, there is transfer of your penis germs to by hand!


Germs, and penis germs are different things. Come on!

It only makes sense to use a paper towel. Everybody does not wash their hands. And even if they did, it will still be germy there.

News Comments > Microsoft Dropping MS Points?
7. Re: Microsoft Dropping MS Points? Jan 24, 2012, 11:16 Enahs
 
I am not sure they should change it. It was a smart financial decision for them to do that, ignoring anybody that might avoid the system because of the points. And it is now an even better financial decision with the changes and fees in the banking system.

Lets explain why.

Every transaction that is made via a CC or debit card, the bank(s) charage a fee. Lets pretend it is just 10 cents. So, if Microsoft were to charge $1 for a song, they lose 10% of the revenue from that purchase. Do that millions of times a day/week/etc, it adds up quickly.

Now, lets say you buy $10 worth of 'points', the banking fee is per transaction. Microsoft has now only lost 1% of revenue on that same transaction.

As you can imagine, this can QUICKLY add up to millions of dollars lost if you are doing a lot of business.

With the recent dramatic increases in fees for CC/Debit card transactions; this points system is even a bigger savings boom. Why throw it away now?

So I sent this video to Blue as a Media link and he did not post it.

It is the reason why I now am considering taking dance lessons! And I think you will all agree it is one of the best things about the internet (videos like these! heh)!

Might me NSFW, but it is not porn, but it is sensual.

Enjoy.

I know this is going to be a big story and people are going to make a big deal out of it. And I am not saying that id is doing great.

But, they are not ~12 people, nor have they been for a long time. If you look at their employment history, they routinely change out dozens or so people after projects.

Do not get a new mouse Blue! Let me come over, drill some holes in your head and hook up some wires! I got this awesome idea on how to control a computer with mental power only! I tried it with a rabbit already, but he died. I think it was just from lack of brain power though! I suspect you should have marginally more brain power then a rabbit and will be just fine!

Thank to everyone that participated in Play It Forward! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/playitforward2012xmas

Special thanks to Prez on behalf of everyone, for his generosity which gave me the idea to start the group. Group only saw 43 members, but I'm sure there were many others that either didn't get an invite or just didnt accept the group invite.

Invites privs are now locked to only Prez and myself. I'll open them up again next time or make a new group.


Hmm, I did not get the invite, or did not notice it. I would have participated, I even benefited from it without knowing about it!

I'll certainly go out of my way in a game but not far. If I've found 19 widgets, I'll keep a keen eye out for another one. However, that's the extent of it. I welcome achievements when they are quirky things like Portal 2 which gave achievements for mucking around, rather than for repetitive things (find 100 horse shoes) or worse, doing what you're supposed to do (well done on completing a mission).


I think those achievements for completing missions are more of a way for developers to monitor how much of the game the average user players, etc.
If 100% finish first mission, but only 10% finish last, well, you know you lost em somewhere! etc

I got 3 free games, my brother got 5 during the steam achievements!

Got a lot of lame coupons to; but, this really is a "first world problem", people complaining about ways to get free stuff that they do not have to participate in!


And we did not buy any of the games either. We either had them, or did the free things.

I'd agree with that. In usage it's a bit weird until you get the hang of it, but it's quite useful. Not enough to pry me away from Android or iOS (I use both - a Samsung Galaxy S II and a 4th-gen iPod Touch), but it is a lot better than people give it credit for.

Biggest problem, IMO, is the languid, stagnating closed hardware set Microsoft insists for WP7. Without particularly ground-breaking industrial design, impressive hardware specs, or low prices to bring customers in, it currently seems to be a solution in search of a problem.

The thing is, there is NOTHING stopping Samsung or HTC, etc, putting in killer hardware. The Focus S is just the Galaxy S II, but with stripped down hardware. Same design, internal structure, just a slower processor. And the thing is, because WP7 is so optimized, it does not need the dual core CPU to run 1000X smother then Android.

People in Android are used to focusing on high end specs for a good experience, and that is just NOT required for a WP7/7.5 system.

So not having a dual cores is NOT a disadvantage, it is an advantage, as the battery life can be better. The manufactures, are however, doing other things. No where near enough storage space is my largest complaint of these 2nd gen WP7 devices. I still use a first gen with 40gb of space, and 2nd gens are no more then 16gb! But even though my phone is quite old, it runs smoother then ANY andorid phone you can find me, included custom roms. There are legit technical reasons, and ample post by Google engineers explaining why this is the case.

As for the other end, Microsoft has modified the hardware requirements to include other form factors, as well as allow for lower priced hardware, etc. In the "western world" it is about high specs, because that is what people are trained for from Android, despite the fact that it is fairly irrelevant because the system is so well coded. They are going for low cost in the rest of the world.

I will be the first to admit, in static pictures and even in videos, the Windows Phone (Metro interface) looks horrible. But really, I highly recommend you not judge it solely on that. It is absolutely wonderful and fantastic to use in reality, on a phone. I do not think it would be great for a PC, maybe tablet, but not a PC, but I am not judging there until I try.

But really, before completely ruling out the interface on the phone you have to try it. It is, by far, the most fantastic interface and user experience from any system I have ever used; and it is pretty hard to find a system I have not used. They shot themselves in the foot, because it is such a wonderful interface but impossible to make look good through pictures.


Feel free to have whatever opinion you want, that is the great thing about choices. But being prejudice because it is Microsoft, or being negative because you do not think it looks pretty in pictures, only shows your ignorance towards how you interact with the world and perceive it.

Try it, on the phone, and then hate it if you really do.
