guestimating

In the crock pot: black beans, onion, bay leaf and fire roasted jalapeños - I’m living dangerously and using 4. I add already boiling water to these at about 3:1 ration with the beans and leave them on high until they smell really good - maybe 4-5 hours. #vegan #guestimating (I also added two cloves of garlic) (at My Little Pink House )

How do we know the behavior of dinosaurs? Like how do we know that T-rexs really were (I don't know the correct way to describe them so let's go with) giant eating death machines? Is there DNA evidence left on the fossils that give scientists an idea of the dinosaurs behavior? Or do scientists guesstimate their behavior from our reptiles and birds? Or is a mixture of both?

I think it’s generally a mixture of using marks on fossils to deduce behavior and using the behavior of similar animals to guestimate tendencies and patterns, although blogs like @paleoillustration would likely know more. 

For instance, we’ve deduced some cool stuff about T-rex feeding behavior from looking at tooth marks on the skulls of Triceratops. Some of the big, common marks on multiple animals don’t correlate with feeding bites, and they put it together to figure out that they T-rex were literally beheading their food so they could get to the best meat. (Check out the link, it’s cool and has diagrams of how it worked - they’re not graphic).

There we go, the best loop I could come up with!

The person above you is the one you’ll be receiving the book from (and giving your address to), and the person below you is the person you’ll be sending the book to.

I’ll be both editing this original post and reblogging it whenever the book’s location updates. :)

And this time, I figured out a way to provide a guestimate of the dates your week for the book will fall on, so watch for that in the updates after the traveling officially starts!

anonymous asked:

what is this rp like? I've had some bad experiences with appless rps where players just want to ship or bubble rp etc. are the players here into writing more, making connections, and pushing plots?? thank you!

I know how you feel, anon. I’ve been through the exact same things when it comes to this type of roleplay, but I can honestly say (without as much bias as I can) that this place has done incredibly well to avoid bubble roleplaying and becoming a ship based roleplay. We’ve been open for a month now (OH MY GOD, GUYS!) and there’s forty-seven characters in play right now, and out of that there’s like only five or so active ships (haven’t actually counted them, I’m just guestimating). Everyone seems to be really good at doing all their replies and, from the looks of things, plotting happens all the times and I swear to God there’s so many more intricate connections between characters that I can’t keep up with.

I know a lot of roleplays spout the same thing, that they’re a welcoming place that loves new members to join, but it makes me so happy to know that when we say this its the actual truth. Our members can back this up. They are the reason this place has been successful so far.

As a side note, I love all you members long time. Thanks for giving me so much work to do on the main and on my characters! <333

anonymous asked:

how long is this chapter gonna be :0

UHMM I’m actually not sure because I have the chapter written but it’s not completely thumbnailed yet (I’ve been away on vacation)… their friend adventures go until page 10 and then after that things start to shift, if that’s what you were wondering about. :D My guestimate would be like somewhere around 30 pgs…

a month ago I hurt my finger at a show and went to the doc to get it checked out and she told me to just take some pain meds and I knew that was bogus but I didnt feel like arguin and my finger is still sore and now probably passed the window of help and would need to be rebroken to set right again (I’m guestimating) and I can’t stand my doc tbh

Is no one going to talk about how hitting someone, really hard on the head reverses any brain manipulation in the Marvel Universe?

Avengers: Black Widow hits Hawkeye really hard on the head to undo the scepter’s magic.
Age of Ultron: Tony drops an entire building on the Hulk head first and then punches him for good measure.
Civil War: Bucky hits his head REALLY hard on the window of a helicopter from a, guestimating, forty foot or so drop off a building.

With a name like irnbruandchill, I'm guestimating that you're both Scottish. Lol

As Scottish as it gets
We pretty much live off irn bru, should probably be sponsored by them because it’s almost all we drink

Today i was talking my elder sister and i was excited to hear she was voting for Bernie sander (she just turned 18) so i decided lets have a political talk with my sister. So i asked her how she felt about Bernie’s plans to make colleges free, she said that she love the idea. I asked her if she knew what the cause of that was, and she didnt so i informed her that to make colleges free would require higher taxation. And by a guestimate (guess/estimate) i said roughly to 15 cents on the dollar. She told me it was completely worth it. So i asked her “can you even afford food now with the taxes we pay?” she says “i guess im gonna have to find a way.” then she proceeds to say that shes not voting at all if Bernie doesnt become the democrates nominee, because her “opinion wouldnt really be heard” to not know the taxation of Bernie sanders is one thing but to say that she WONT vote if hes not nominated is horrible. Not voting takes that opinion that she wants to be heard so badly, and throws it away completely. To not vote means you dont care about your future for the next 4-8 years, or the wars that could be fought as a result that could scar this planet for an eternity. Now this may be taking it to an extreme but your vote counts, and though these scenarios are farfetched, they are very really.

Lion Cub and Supermoon Eclipse Captured in a Single Frame

External image

The photo above is a perfect example of when preparation and luck meet, shake hands, and press down your shutter in unison. Captured by wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas, the photo shows a lion cub in the foreground with last September’s supermoon eclipse in the background.

In case you’re wondering how Burrard-Lucas got so close to a lion cub, you should know he didn’t. The photo was shot using his trusty BeetleCam: an armored, remote-controlled rig that he built with his brother Matt.

But just because this was captured using a robotic cam, doesn’t mean it was an easy shot. It took a month of planning, and still he was going to need “a spot of luck.” As he explained on his blog:

This was going to be a challenging shot to achieve for so many reasons! Balancing the foreground brightness with the dim red moon was an exercise in guestimation, as was trying to compose the shot in the pitch darkness. And of course, I had to do this while trying to avoid the pride of lions running off with my BeetleCam!

In the end, he managed to capture the photo you see up top, a lion cub with the supermoon eclipse rising behind him, shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III and 17-40mm f/4 sitting atop his BeetleCam and fired at f/13, 8 seconds, and ISO 3200 while the remote-controlled cam’s flash lit up the foreground.

Electric kettle with temperature control

I’m new to aeropress, and liking it a lot so far. The only variable I find myself unable to have consistent control over is water temp. Anyone have a recommendation for an electric kettle, preferably with temp control? Would be awesome if I could get something that would heat the water right to 185F or so rather than guestimating cooling boiling water. Thanks!
