research building


Zeb pilot house

Plus House Larvik is a pilot project on a family house out of the ordinary. By optimizing architectural qualities and technological solutions, the house serves both the living and energy needs of a family house, in addition to generating enough energy surpluses to power an electric car year-round.

Like I’ve made it very clear I’m doing my research about PC building so yeah I’m finding shit out…so? This is why hobbyists get a bad rap, this fucking superiority complex is so ingrained in a vocal subset. “Ha you didn’t know you can only SLI bridge with cards based on the same architecture? Go back to consoles!” Like calm tf down you weren’t born an expert.

You should want more people to learn your hobby, that’s why I always try my best to answer comic and gaming stuff to people just getting into the hobby

I don’t know where people get this idea that Baekhyun is starving himself and surviving on water only. To bulk up and build muscles, he has to eat a lot and he will be on a high protein diet with no carbs. I have a younger brother who was body building and trust me, you cannot build up muscles with water only. He ate a lot of lean meat, egg whites, fish, steamed vegetables for months to bulk up. Protein, protein and protein. Baekhyun won’t bulk up to Chris Evans level but he is certainly not starving himself. He just can’t have carbs during that period. Rice, noodles and junk food are no go for him. What he did was chewed and tasted those high carbs food before spitting them out because he missed the taste of rice and noodles. He was eating but his diet food wasn’t tasty and he missed having rice and bread and all those junk food. I can tell you that unseasoned lean chicken tastes like cardboard. I wish people will read and do research first before going into hysterics about his diet.

How can a rape victim live past her desire to kill her rapist? How do you even live when you will never get your dignity back through murdering him? How do you ever have power again when you know it's false? Can any followers give ideas/advice?

You focus on your well being and find supports. There are many of us who have not and likely will never receive justice so you’re by no means alone. I still hate my rapist, but after years of soul searching, therapy, social support building, and research into rape and abuse, I hardly ever think about him on my own. We may not be able to receive justice, but we can thrive in spite of a world that tries to put us down at every turn. Check out our posts under abuse, self care, and resources

Do yourself a favour and go and read this fic now!
I think one of the comments really captures my thoughts on this fic beautifully, “*dying whale noises*”. Fairly accurate. Hands down one of my fav Rebelcaptain fics out there (along with the 20 or so open tabs on my iPad eagerly (desperately?) waiting for updates). I’m hanging for a sequel.

“Based on the information you were able to retrieve from Bastion, we have uncovered that the Empire has a research facility working on building a super-weapon. It is nearing completion, and we need to know everything we can about it as quickly as we can.”

The first major passively ventilated & cooled building in London, winner of the RIBA President’s Research Award 2007

“The building has a hybrid environmental strategy, naturally ventilated all year and passively cooled through the summer months but engaging downdraught cooling via a central lightwell through periods of summer peak temperatures. The London ‘heat island effect’ shows the city centre to be warming but the SSEES project demonstrates that it is possible to configure a low energy strategy in a city centre at these latitudes. This is the first known application of this low energy environmental strategy in a city centre in the world. The strategy has been exhaustively modelled and tested at the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development at De Montfort University, Leicester, and the BP Institute for Multiphase Flow at Cambridge University. Fresh air, tempered in winter or pre-cooled in mid summer, flows from the atrium across the floorplates to the exterior exhausts. We have devised acoustically treated narrow section transfer ducts within partitions to allow air to pass across enclosed spaces such as the first floor computer rooms without unwelcome sound transfer.”

How do you feel about small "diy" aviaries for birds? I was thinking about building one for my two budgies since the cage i have them in i feel is too small, do you think its a good idea?

It’s really a coincidence that you’d bring this up, because I’ve been researching building a DIY aviary for my birds, haha, so I know a little bit about it now! All in all I don’t think it’s a terrible idea, but I also think most of the people who’ve done DIY aviaries didn’t do it to a standard I find acceptable.

First of all, let me say that it’s great that you’re looking for ways to improve your birds’ quality of life, because that’s part of what makes owning birds so rewarding. You’re awesome! But you should do plenty of research on what works and what doesn’t, so you don’t invest a ton of money into a project that doesn’t end up working at all. 

Since you’re building one because the cage is too small, I’m guessing it’s an indoor aviary? I’m also guessing that you don’t want to spend a ton of money either. A lot of the DIY aviaries I see are made out of old bookshelves, tv stands, or whatever. Here’s an example of a bad DIY aviary - in my opinion:

The one strong opinion I have about DIY aviaries is that they should never have solid wood paneling like in the second picture because it (1) enables the budgies to be more prone to night frights (someone could walk up from one of the sides and the budgies could flip shit; they don’t have 360 vision like they would in a cage made of mostly wire/rungs like normal bird cages) and (2) have you ever tried scrubbing bird poop off of wood? It doesn’t work. And I know that budgie poop gets everywhere so you’d end up trying to clean that up. It just doesn’t seem like a good idea and it’s not practical.(And eventually all of that crusty poop would start to add up and you’d have to rebuild the aviary because it would smell so bad.)

This cage is awesome because it’s a larger wire mesh cage which allows for the birds to see their environment, airs out the cage, and doesn’t allow for the Crusty Poop Nightmare™. It’s obviously made from the frame of a bookshelf or entertainment center of some kind, which is an awesome place to start. I’d only advise that you make sure the wire mesh is installed correctly so the birds don’t hurt themselves or get out of the cage. 

Other than those two things, I think it’s a fantastic idea! Just make sure you use pet safe paint and when you paint the wood (if that’s what you’re choosing to do) that you do it in the farthest room of the house from where the birds are currently kept, and that the paint has at least 24 hours of air-out time before you move the birds into their new aviary. 

I hope you send me another anon or submit a picture when you finish, so I can see how it turned out!

P.S. I learned through another DIY project I did that zinc is toxic to birds, so remember that as well.

some more tidbits from Dom's twitter!
  • dom: All I'll say is that the ULA are worse than ever, ISIS like, Kieren and Simon are in grave danger. #InTheFlesh
  • q: question, what happens when a non PDS sufferer takes Neurotriptyline?
  • dom: Nothing good. Deadly. If one was to impersonate a PDS sufferer to gain access to H&W HQ, then be careful #InTheFlesh
  • dom re amy: She's at Halperin & Weston pharmaceuticals HQ in Norfolk. The Doctors aren't done with her yet... #InTheFlesh
  • dom: FUN FACT; Halperin & Weston Pharmaceuticals are one of the biggest companies in the world. Rumour has it Dr Weston went insane.#InTheFlesh
  • dom: FUN RUMOUR; Dr Weston tried to burn the whole Research & Development building down before disappearing completely. #InTheFlesh

Also adding to the Spark headcanon: since he’s basically the one with a pokemon shelter everytime Candela and Blanche find a pokemon abandoned somewhere they bring it to Spark and while it’s recovering they visit it often during the week and sometimes even bring some treat for it.
Some of this pokemons prefere to go with either Blanche or Candela and everyone is ok with this, so the three of them have basically a bunch of pokemon walking freely around their research building and every member of the team spoils them.
A random stranger (another scientist, a reporter, whatever) walks into the building and the last thing they were waiting was the pokemon, like, okay they had to have pokemon they’re studying pokemon for crying out loud just, why the fuck there are so many pokemon in there??? And why the fuck nobody says a thing?? Is this really normal???
Then random stranger finds the team leader and yes, even the teal leader acts like this is normal, so when their done random stranger gets out of there shaking because they basically have a freaking pokemon army in there and it looks like they don’t fucking know that
