So back in early 2020, when suddenly presented with a yawning vista of time at home stretching before me, I had a vague idea to get completely Swole while in lockdown. The tattoos would just have to wait ’til after.
That didn’t work out so well, despite months of confinement, although I did manage to avoid the COVID-19 “COVID 19 pounds".
It turns out “getting back into the best shape of your life” is harder than it sounds when you say it in your head.
Hence, here’s my heartfelt thanks to Boris and his “government of all the talentless”.
For so completely screwing up their pandemic response that I get indefinite extensions to lockdown. Note the adjective I used is “indefinite”, not “infinite”, but give it…
Previous Messaging to turkeys has been unclear . We acknowledge that, and hands up, it was not helpful. The owner — turkey relationship has suffered and opportunities for arrangements of mutual benefit have gone sour as a consequence.
We’re sorry, and we aim to address that.
In the old story this proposition could be summed up thus:
"We think turkeys should vote for our proposed unspecified winter festival (that may include sumptuous meat based feasts and later, sandwhiches)”
I know: too long, too vague — “what’s in it for me” etc. etc. gobble, turkeys may well say.
Nevertheless, many turkeys voted for this, placing their faith in us. We intend to double down on this endorsement by continuing with our current plan of works, but this time being much more explicit. …
TL;DR; position to a first approximation affects volume.
Nevertheless: one of the best reasons is simply to get the magnetic field from the pickup fully covering all six strings.
Oddly enough: the stock pickup for this guitar does not really have the best width for this bridge, so this arrangement should be an improvement.
We have to consider all cases in science — we’ll see there’s a reason I mention this.
This is produced through changes in tension on the string on either side of the finger, by oscillating it over the string along the string length. More fingers apply more tension and result in a wider frequency excursion.
It’s crystal clear how this works, but just for the record: we’re bending the string.
“When too much is never nough”
I have personally experimented with this a long while back: you can very slightly vary the tension of the strings by pressing hard enough to force the strings to take a sharper angle over the frets. …
Hive! Bring a sword!
So, I got hooked on Destiny. My excuse is myelination.
Until recently the only character who would really resonate with me was of course, Cayde6. Why? Well of course the jovial robot super-ninja was just very engaging, and his slightly contrarian take was a refreshing spice to add to the melange of the game lore.
And even then his character (to be fair like all of the others) was woefully under-used, until his brutal **SPOILER**.
I can’t see that happening to The Drifter: he is the ultimate survivalist libertarian. Although with a hidden “Heart of Gold”?
I had almost a massive shock, when I learnt The Drifter (gasp) “does not make it”. … in an alternate timeline … well, we -hope- an alternate. …
For some, it was by design, a misguided stance formulated by grown men who nevertheless seemed to understand little about the giant economic bloc a few tens of miles away over the Channel.
For others, it was irrelevant whether or not they knew what they were doing.
And it would appear the systems to enable the — as yet — unspecified new arrangements with the EU do not exist.
On a decades-long project these Ultras appear to be driven mainly by hunger for the spotlight and a fanatical reliance upon a set of simple beliefs that are held to have magical properties to overcome the realities of the physical world. …
