Worked in a small lab, found an old bottle of picric acid in the flammables cupboard. There were white crystals all around the cap of the bottle, so opening it would probably have blown up the lab.
Asked the lab tech in charge about it, he said he called the Fire Department once about it, they told him to call the Bomb Squad for disposal. So he ... put it back in the cabinet and left it there.
That was over 20 years ago. It probably is still there today.
The BoC is not that kind of "Bank". It is Canada's central bank, analogous to the Fed. Duties include formulating monetary policy and promotion of a safe, sound financial system in Canada.
Considering how stable our banking system has been here compared to our neighbours to the south, probably makes sense to pay attention to what the BoC has to say.
1. Preheat oven to 350 F / 180 C
2. Place non-stick cookie sheet in oven, preferably with some nice chocolate chip cookie batter on it
3. Bake for 14 min or until cookies lightly browned
4. Remove cookie sheet from oven without the aid of oven mitts
Will remove your finger prints for about two weeks, but that's okay because you'll need more cookies by then!

Probably not a good idea to have faith in Synology. They are still promoting said products on their website:
And the resellers the Synology website sends you to are still reselling:
The "car" was a stripped shell without even a proper seat. No transmission (straight chain drive off the engine to the rear axle), no radiator, 500 ml fuel capacity, hard rubber tires and no suspension. This thing was never driven far enough or hard enough to need a cooling system!
In real-world conditions I can go faster further and more comfortably more safely using my bicycle, and instead of requiring nasty petrol I can do it powered only by 500 ml of 5% ABV 100% eco-friendly barley-based fuel.
To get really pedantic, the term "red shift" is NOT interchangeable with "the Doppler Effect" as it INCLUDES shift from the Doppler effect AND other effects such as the shift due to the expansion of the universe (cosmological redshift).
In this specific case I believe "blueshift" or "negative redshift" would be the best term to use. One cannot exclude a contribution to the wavelength shift caused by the gravitational effects of falling into a black hole.

So sorry for the sentence spacing but El Reg comments set a paragraph break after every hard return. Anyone know how to do a soft return here?
There have been instances where a Lotto ticket was a good investment. Here in Canada we have a Lotto that costs $5 for 3 plays with a 1 in 28.6 million odds of winning a (sometimes) $50 M jackpot with overflow into a series of up to 50 $1 M prizes.
So, wait for a big pot paid for by others and then buy just over 9.5 M cards at a total cost of $48 M and you can cover ALL possible winning combinations as well as collecting all of the overflow prizes. Even if you have to split the jackpot and several overflow prizes you still come out ahead.
He's not blind due to ethanol being an antidote for methanol poisoning. Methanol is not particularly toxic in and of itself, but is converted by alcohol dehydrogenase into formaldehyde (not good) and then aldehyde dehydrogenase converts that into formic acid (really really bad). Flooding the system with ethanol blocks this and gives the kidneys time to excrete the methanol.
Don't try to use methanol ingestion to get a free slug of ethanol at your local hospital, though. There is a specific alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor available, so ethanol is no longer used as a medical treatment. The other treatment is dialysis, which in an emergency situation entails the placement of a temporary dialysis catheter. They are freaking huge and get shoved into blood vessels in the neck or groin with the aid of things like wires, stiffeners and dilators.
Expect creaks and moans from the suspension esp. when a storm is a comin', difficultly focusing the near-vision cameras, and generalized failure of both solid and liquid waste disposal systems. This will result in a steady stream of reports on said failures intermixed with retransmission of data collected in 2005-2006, and funny stories from a trip long ago when he and his brother left home for the last time.
Nope. Central to aerobic metabolism is the TCA or Kreb's Cycle. The enzymes involved are critical to cell function, such core functions tend to be very highly conserved. There is not much difference between us and fish here, and fish do not have multiple sets of TCA enzymes optimized for different temperature ranges. Swapping enzymes can't change the underlying physics: chemical reactions occur more slowly at lower temperatures. That's why even a small boost to core temp is such an advantage for a predatory fish, as it can then outrun both its competition and prey.
