The Bad Astronomer on the SHELLS of stars within elliptical galaxies:

Image


What has most likely happened is that ellipticals like the above got a more-or-less direct hit by a sizeable colliding galaxy and that we are still seeing the ripples caused by that collision even though there are no nearby candidates for the collision. On the other hand, these shells with elliptical galaxies have been known only since 1980 so we are still trying to figure these things out.

At 500 meters across it will be have about 2.7 times the surface area of the Arecibo Observatory (which is 1000 feet ≈ 305 meters across).

Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center paid the demanded ransom of 40 bitcoins — currently worth $16,664 dollars — after the network infiltration that began Feb. 5, CEO Allen Stefanek said in a statement.
"The quickest and most efficient way to restore our systems and administrative functions was to pay the ransom and obtain the decryption key," Stefanek said. "In the best interest of restoring normal operations, we did this."

Actually, yes. Most of these scum actually do give you the keys. If they didn't, word would get out fairly fast that you are screwed either way, and they wouldn't get paid.

believe it or not there's a guy like that where i live ... he parks in the handicapped spot with his absurd small-dicked tricked-out accesorized-out-the-yin-yang pickup, so big it takes up both spots and half the sidewalk, at my kid's elementary school

he's actually something of a neighbourhood bully, driving super-aggressively to the point where multiple people have filed police reports and the school is thinking of banning him (at least his idiot truck) from school grounds

He does not qualify for "That Guy" unless he has a Rebel Flag flying from, or displayed upon, his truck.

Wonderful example of a Christie suspension prototype in trials. Christie offered the suspension design to the US army first. They declined. So he sold it to the Soviets. That is the suspension used on the Soviet T-34 tank.
