NASA has released some fascinating new images of Mars which reveal bizarre natural sand patterns that bare a striking resemblance to Morse code.In a post entitled Martian Morse Code , NASA explains that that they are in fact Martian sand dunes which have been influenced by local topography .While it might look like a Martian version of the Nazca Lines, there is sadly a perfectly reasonable explanation for these odd-looking geographical features.The shape and orientation of dunes can usually tell us about wind direction, but in this image, the dune-forms are very complex, so it s difficult to know the wind direction.The patterns themselves sit within a large circular depression, most likely an impact crater.According to NASA the circular depression is most likely a very old crater, which in turn has then protected the dunes from more severe winds.
Smartphone torture tests come in many flavors, from perfectly reasonable deepwater dunks to utterly absurd boiling-melted-crayon immersions.So while some stunts sensibly test the durability of various handsets in situations that stay within the realms of possibility, others merely show off their creator s outlandish imagination, usually leading to bizarre shenanigans for the watching masses.Take GizmoSlip, a YouTube channel that describes itself as offering creative and fun tech durability tests.For its latest effort, the team encased an iPhone SE in a slab of Flubber and dropped it off a building.Flubber, for those not in the know, is a kind of rubbery substance, a version of which can be made from glue, Borax, food coloring, and water.It looks like a cross between hard candy and the consequences of a heavy cold, and first showed up in the 1961 hit movie The Absent-Minded Professor.
An Australian man who'd rather we didn't know his surname has suffered a spider bite to the penis, with the extraordinary revelation that this isn't the first time it's happened.It's as if he's putting his penis near spiders on purpose, wanting it to happen.The perfectly reasonable explanation for the bite isn't that he's been putting his penis near spiders on purpose, but that he works on building sites as a tradesman, where portable outdoor toilets are used and are more likely to be infested with creepy crawlies.Underlining the fact that he definitely wasn't putting his penis near spiders on purpose for a sexual thrill, Jordan explained: "I was sitting on the toilet doing my business and just felt the sting that I felt the first time.I was like 'I can't believe it's happened again.'I looked down and I've seen a few little legs come from around the rim."

On Tuesday, the Twitter account for Sid Miller, Texas Republican Agricultural Commissioner, sent out a message seriously misspelling Hillary Clinton s name and shortening it by several letters, rendering it as a far more offensive word beginning with C. Fortunately, he has a perfectly reasonable explanation for it—several of them, in fact.PENNSYLVANIA: NEW AUTO ALLIANCE POLL wrote @MillerForTexas in the since-removed tweet.TRUMP: 43 Cunt: 42 Go Trump Go!Shortly after deleting the message, Miller s Twitter sent out a followup tweet claiming the account had been HACKED, writing, The disgusting re-tweet has been removed and we have changed all account passwords.That was the same story given by agency spokesperson Mark Loeffler, who told the Dallas News that the hack was likely intended to make both Miller and Donald Trump look bad.Soon, however, the followup tweet was also deleted and Loeffler had a new explanation.
I recently wrote a Mac 911 column titled, Yes, if you delete your photos from iCloud Photo Library, they re deleted everywhere.I thought that might close the door on the question.Instead, I continue to get perfectly reasonable variants on it.Do not delete images or videos from the Photos app in iOS for any device logged into the same iCloud account.Do not go into the Recently Deleted album and delete media.If you delete in any of the first three cases, your media will be put into the Recently Deleted album and deleted after about a month permanently.
p Nokia's iconic 3310 phone officially went on sale today, but critics are torn whether it is still relevant in today's smartphone-dominated market.Announced at the World Mobile Congress (WMC) in February, the Nokia 3310 is almost identical to the 17-year-old phone it's based on.Texting and dealing is done through the 12 physical buttons, although the three buttons and the navigation rocker switch below the screen are new.It also offers a standby battery life of up to a month while the old pin charger has been replaced with a modern micro USB connector.The Daily Telegraph says it "is considerably lighter and thinner" and so "very pocket friendly", although it might not "survive the same beatings that many originals took".Texting is "perfectly reasonable", says TechRadar, and the upgraded visuals means Snake is easier to play.
The account owner uses colorful language and may be inappropriate to peruse at a workplace.I tested the list of things she noted, and I had slightly different results, but no less concerning.I hadn t recently noted where I parked my car, but apparently that s within the purview of results too.It s perfectly reasonable to want convenient access to a number of features without having to unlock your phone, even when that s relatively easy with Touch ID.Although Apple generally positions itself rightly as privacy conscious vis-a-vis the information about yourself that it allows itself and others to see, there s no one-stop-shop for dialing up or down what appears on the lock screen.You have to visit several places in Settings:
There's something relaxing about being in a hammock and the Inferno allows campers to bring it along for any kind of winter getawayIt’s time to dust off those camping hammocks — they are no longer considered a summer-specific piece of gear.Thanks to the Inferno from Sierra Madre Research, hammocks are now perfectly reasonable to enjoy no matter the time of year.The Inferno, which recently launched via the crowdfunding site Kickstarter, is a two-part insulated sleep system designed specifically for a hammock.Using an easy access top quilt and a canoe-shaped under quilt, Inferno retains heat like no other similar product.The innovative system turns hammocks into essential cold-weather gear.
We understand that it is difficult to specify how a business wants to be digitized.But that is why the support is and it is perfectly reasonable to require a description of how the tax revenue is to be used, writes Karin Rydén, Swedish.Robert Gabrielsson, ceo of Koinor Future AB, writes in an op-ed that The digitaliseringscheckar is highly anticipated by many business owners and a significant contribution to Sweden in order to increase its digitaliseringstakt.at the same time, he thinks that the way to distribute these cheques is cumbersome and slow.Digitaliseringscheckarna is a form of business development checks that have been in existence for several years and continuously developed in close cooperation with the regions.today, it is also the regions – the county administrative board or the regional council – who have the responsibility for the applications.
I think this is a perfectly reasonable question, and it’s something I’ve spent a good part of my career mulling over.In basically all animal species, males and females do tend to behave in distinct ways, and these distinctions are largely presumed to be biologically hardwired rather than resulting from acculturation — a presumption that is itself fairly safe because most animals don’t have complex cultures.Both tend to dismiss conflicting evidence from biology and anthropology as expressions of confirmation bias from the patriarchy.The neurological similarity of human males and females is a recently-evolved feature.Human males engage in much more substantial nurturing behavior toward the young than any of our near relatives [11].They are also overwhelmingly responsible for the dangerous, exhausting, and unpleasant physical work that confers little money and less status [13].
Perhaps there is a perfectly reasonable explanation why Microsoft doesn’t seem to be so invested in its Windows 10 Mobile platform or the devices that rely on it.It might, instead, be more interested in getting a full Windows 10 version running on ARM-based devices.At least that’s what Qualcomm reportedly said at its Q2 2017 earnings call.A “desktop-grade” Windows version and a Qualcomm Snapdragon device is going to be a curious thing to watch.And not because it hasn’t been done before, as evidenced by the Nokia Lumia 2520 above.In fact, it will be curious exactly because it has already happened and failed tragically.
p Corey Henson has a perfectly reasonable request for iCloud Photo Sharing:My family just returned from a vacation and we took over 1,800 photos between us.I want to pare this monstrous quantity down to something reasonable for a slideshow, and figured the way to do that is to compile all the photos into one place and share that with the other photographers, and have them all “like” the ones to use in the slideshow.However, Corey found that while people with access to the library can tap Like in iOS, there’s no way to sort the images or create a smart album in Photos for macOS.The likes don’t even show up!You’re missing nothing: Photos for iOS and macOS have slightly different features, and shared albums lack options that would let you reduce or sort the set.
The Federation Against Copyright Theft or FACT is trying to scare people who use Kodi to stream TV shows, and the national press is happy to play along with its little PR game.The Independent has a story claiming that now Kodi Fully Loaded sellers are being shut down, it will be possible to take their list of customers and go knocking on their doors.This is a really good way for FACT to get people to stop buying Kodi boxes online, and it might even help reduce the number of people who are streaming content illegally.And let's be honest, there's a perfectly reasonable expectation that people won't just infringe copyright, and FACT is the institution that's in charge of trying to talk us out of streaming illegally, instead of grabbing a Netflix account.For the most part, the music industry, film industry and all of the other industries affected by copyright infringement have gone after the groups who distribute.This is a model also used in the policing of illegal drugs.
A good Philips Hue bulb costs about $50 at full retail, and you can save a few bucks if you grab one on sale.Anyone who has Hue products knows that’s a perfectly reasonable price for such a terrific lighting solution.But there’s an Amazon sale happening right now on the Philips Hue Dimmer Kit that gets you a Hue bulb and an installation-free dimmer switch for $35.It’s not as good as Amazon’s price was in the last sale, but we’re honestly not sure it’ll ever be that cheap again and this is still a terrific value.Here’s what you need to know from the product page:Quickly dim or brighten up to 10 lights for games, parties, and movies from the comfort of your couch or bed.
If it’s good enough for your sweater, it’s good enough for your shoe.The chic shoes, which seem to be nearing ubiquity among tech- and forward-fashion crowds these days, are rather understated insofar as their design is concerned.But if you take a closer look, you will find they are made of a rather odd material.Sure, merino wool seems perfectly reasonable for socks, but for other footwear?A Kickstarter success story, founder Tim Brown initially put forth his notion of wool shoes in 2014.A native of New Zealand, Brown grew up surrounded by sheep and well-versed in the benefits of the material.
Smart watches were the thing two years ago and everyone would have their own.today, it almost feels like it's only Apple that's left in the deck, unfortunately, but they are selling pretty well it seems.Horace Dediu is an analyst with a really good eye on the Apple, and he draws not only figures out of the air.According to him, it is perfectly reasonable that Apple has sold some 15 million watches in the last 12 months at an average price of 330 dollars.Apple boasted on the latest keynoten you have passed on the Rolex in the sale and I was a little surprised, Rolex sells the really expensive watches and not too many.But the Apple meant then was how much money it sold for.
The Nebula Mars by well-known consumer electronics and accessories brand Anker might look like a portable projector, but we assure you it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.At 3,000 lumens, the lamp is twice as bright as most portable projectors.With its 19,500 mAh battery, the Nebula Mars lasts twice as long as most portable projectors.And thanks to its dual 10W JBL speakers, this awesome device is infinitely better than using your smartphone speakers for sound.The Nebular Mars connects wirelessly to any iPhone or Android device, and it projects video or photos in HD up to 150 inches diagonally.$599.99 is a perfectly reasonable price for such an impressive device, but it’s on sale for just $449.99 for today only.
While Uber and others are fighting to create autonomous flying taxi drones, a small company in California is looking to go one step further by completely replacing your car.Passenger Drone have now released the footage of their very first manned test flight.The drone is still in the testing stages of development, so don’t expect to to fly you across the country just yet.Instead it has a perfectly reasonable top speed of 45mph with what is around a 25 minute flight time.We’ll admit that’s not much, but it should be enough to get you to the shops and back.Alternatively the company see it as a commuter vehicle, allowing you to fly to work, re-charge its batteries during the day and then fly back home.
Virgin Trains have apologised "unreservedly" after facing online backlash over an exchange between one of their spokespersons and a woman on Twitter.Emily Lucinda Cole tweeted the company: "When virgin trains mess up and the older male train manager in the resulting conversation dismisses you with that hideously patronising word women shudder at in contexts such as these: "honey" @virgin_trainsEC."A Virgin Trains East Coast spokesperson on Twitter responded with, "Sorry for the mess up Emily, would you prefer "pet" or "love" next time?Cole was left angrier as a result:Social media users were quick to share their disbelief at the response.One said it was an "incredibly rude and snarky response to a perfectly reasonable complaint" whilst another tweeted, "So instead of giving good customer service, you thought it would be best to mimic the behaviour being complained about?
