    I grew up on a small farm and I'm kind of surprised at how little other people know about agriculture. Maybe learn about your food sometime, it could be useful or enlightening.

    On Pneumonia, which is basically fluid in your lungs, its the disease that thrives in the mucus that really gets you.

    The worst possible combination is necrotic pneumonia. My mom had that and miraculously survived due to lung bypass and now she's back in the classroom teaching 5th graders and a community hero. It has a 2% survival chance. Thanks Florida Hospital!

    horsepower is basically just torque. its proportional to torque. its torque x rpm / 5252. thats why cars always have torque equal to horsepower at 5252rpm. some other countries use watts to measure cars power and newton-meters to measure torque.


    holy crap is NOBODY sending you guys credit music? this is like the 4th in a row with the generic theme.

    Gotta side with Gav and Brandon. Adjusting for inflation is absolutely important if you're comparing movies over time. Opening weekend box office is basically a measure of hype, so if you're not adjusting for inflation, that you're not doing any justice to the older movies you're comparing to. It still doesn't really do justice because there are just way more theaters that people can see these movies at, but it helps. Perhaps they were all arguing the same thing though. Opening weekend is really only a good measure for very recent movies.

      a movie might open in more theaters but it actually has competition now. also the #1 movie gone with the wind was released theatrically in 1939 a time before television and it was in theaters for 4 fucking years and was then rereleased 4 or 5 times, people think titanic broke the system a bit because it was in theaters for only 10 months

      Seriously, Brandon is the least relate-able person in existence. "Someone looked at me and it was sooooo awkward" "I order artisan grass from California" *nonsense that literally no one does* "WHAT ARE GUYS TALKING ABOUT EVERYONE DOES THIS ALL THE TIME" *screams over everyone because he can't admit he's wrong*. It's like a character on a show you don't like, except that's really just him.

    For the record, I have a fancy gold wedding/engagement ring with a real diamond and all that, but I never wear it. The ring I wear daily is made of silicone so it doesn't break while I'm laying under a truck and such. My silicone ring cost $15 and honestly, I love it more than my fancy one.

    Horsepower is the power it takes to move 550 pounds 1 foot in 1 second. In the automotive world, this is measured on a Dynamometer. Brandon was slightly correct, as horsepower (and torque) numbers change depending on which gear the car is in. Typically, most cars will have a 1:1 ratio gear (usually 3rd gear in a 5 speed transmission, and 4th gear in a 6 speed transmission) which is used when measuring horsepower and torque. To make things simple, when a car is tested, you get a horsepower and torque number. Torque is the ability to do work, horsepower is how quickly the work will get done. Diesel trucks will often have much more Torque than horsepower, because "speed" is less important, and being able to move/tow heavy loads is more important. A supercar (like a Lamborghini) often has higher horsepower than torque because speed and acceleration is important.

    I used to work at a big jewellery chain, its the 4 c's cut color clarity carat. It is very rare that a diamond will not have incisions (we legit called it looking like frozen spit) but the less inclusions the more expensive. Natural colored diamonds are rare, but regular diamonds a dime a dozen. I say get a gemstone, cheaper and easier to replace if you need to, but gems have different levels of harness so they can crack faster depending on the persons life.  So diamonds are nice because they are hard and probably will not crack. and cubic zircon will go cloudy over time. Diamonds should not.

    Going off what Burnie was saying about WWZ, I was personally really disappointed in the movie because I loved the book and the other book Max Brooks wrote (The Zombie Survival Guide) and I was really looking forward to seeing it bought to the big screen. Fun fact, De Beers was named after the two brothers that first discovered diamonds in South Africa.

    Torque gets a car away from a stop, horsepower gets it to top speed. Torque typically tops out lower in the power band than horsepower.

    @burnie You were wondering what they do with the leftovers from wine making. It depends greatly on the vineyard but for many it is strictly waste. Some will just use is as compost and some will sell it to other people for other uses but I big use is actually in the production of Grappa. The pomace (skins, pulp, seeds, and stems) are distilled to made this brandy-like hard spirit.
