    Numberphile

    I haven't watched all the video yet, but I'm not a fan presenting this topic like this. It's almost dangerously misleading from what I can see, unless they are explaining the context. The sum of all natural numbers is a diverging series. Infinite, to me, in any practical sense. From what I can see, you can get any answer by manipulating an infinite, diverging series.

    Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!

    I'm not exactly sure what to think about all this Q stuff, but I'm very pleased this thread exists. Thanks!

    The big 'wheels coming off GE' thread

    GE/ GE Capital ..... not very different from Enron really, other than the longer timescales. I got caught up in the Jack Welch cult around 2000, his autobiography (2001) cured me. And the GE bailout.... embarrassing.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear: I was looking at: Cannondale Trail 4 2018 Mountain Bike Large. The cannondale Caad8 looks good at that price, but I think it is old stock: 2016 model I think. Has been available for 450 in some shops, vs 395. Anyway, this is good. It's probably all genuine old stock.

    Actually, 2018 is last year's model. You could get in the shops for £549, vs his £525 recently. I think that's part of the explanation.

    Doesn't look like it. i.e. The Cannondale Looks as it should down to the tyres.

    Not sure how he's doing that. They are good prices. Basically look like shop stock.

    Strava's great for keeping track of your own fitness, progress, or training. Interest in (deliberately) going for KOMs has mostly died a death by now. Most Strava users I know use a Garmin or Wahoo bike computer, not the phone app.

    South Yorkshire Police get a few home truths

    Fair play. She was very good. Amazing to have confirmed how these lunatics think.

    Electric Mountain Bikes

    Me neither. But pedal-bike-wise, it would be more difficult than taking someone else's. I hope .

    Electric Mountain Bikes

    I don't have an E-bike but still do road racing, and have a pretty expensive bike. I have an anchor point bolted into my garage floor, which is pretty much the best I can do.

    Electric Mountain Bikes

    It will be a good bike. My main issue would be that it will be set up in UK spec where the motor will not power you beyond 25 km/h (15.5 mph). You can probably get around this, but -- I guess not really legal. On a bike, 15.5 mph feels a lot slower than 18+ mph. Still, it would be a big help uphill +250 W. Try one would be best.

    The Tizard Mission: where the UK handed over the cavity magnetron and the rest, and still couldn't get access to the Norden Bombsight. Thanks.

    Made in Israel?

    Do you use Intel processors? They have major design centre and manufacturing fabs in Israel. I believe most of the processor design is done there.

    Stupid design of modern cycling shorts

    You might have to bend forward at the waist too. That's the other trick. Careful though.
