    • Coldest you've ever been for an extended time ? I went all winter with no heat in the NW.
      I was staying in a storage shed. The temp got down to 10F. My jugs of water froze solid, so no morning coffee. the first morning I was able to chip away at the ice and get tot he small amount of unfrozen water and make coffee, but by the next day that wasn't possible. I went to bed with numb feet wondering if I was going to freeze to death during the night and woke up the next morning happy that my feet had thawed . I was worn out during the day form the cold, I'd be in the warm library and feel completely depleted. this lasted for about a week then it gradually warmed up and 40F felt like a perfect summer day. I now think 50F is great and open the windows of my place I am at now to air it out.

    • Is 37 too old to join the French Foreign Legion?
      You "could". But even if possible, it's unlikely.

      For most people beyond the ridiculous outlier in your example, BMI is a fair approximation of whether a person is overweight.

      In fact, it's good enough for the French Foreign Legion. And they specifically don't want people with a BMI less than 20 - they don't want stick insects in skinny jeans.

      I guess your BMI is stratospheric and you are trying to convince yourself you're not fat but big-boned, or muscled, or healthy.

    • This Chrome extension brings the 'view image' button back to Google Image Search
      https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/view-image/jpcmhcelnjdmblfmjabdeclccemkghjk

      In case you missed it, Google recently made a change as result of a lawsuit that removed the convenient "view image" button from search results. Now, just a day later, there's already a Chrome extension that brings it back.

      Google and Getty Images recently reached a deal, allowing Google to place Getty Images into its search results. However, a contingency of that deal was that Google would need to make some big changes to image search results.

      Now, the "view image" button which previously appeared alongside images in search has been removed. Previously, that button would open the source image without the surrounding webpages to give users easy access to downloading that image, which often led to piracy.

    • Yale University teaches students 'counternarratives around whiteness'
      Yale University is offering a course this semester which aims to help students understand and counteract "whiteness," exploring such topics as "white imagination," "white property" and "white speech."

      According to the syllabus for "Constructions of Whiteness" obtained by The College Fix, the English course is an "interdisciplinary approach to examining our understanding of whiteness."

      The class, which is apparently being offered for the first time this semester, discusses "whiteness as a culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity, which touches upon and assigns value to nearly every aspect of American life and culture."

      The goal of the class is to "create a lab for the construction of counternarratives around whiteness in any creative form: play, poem, memoir, etc.," states the syllabus.
