There's definitely some that are flimsier than is comforting, at least. Beyond that, even with sturdy ones there's not really a good reason to add more wear and tear than necessary, yeah? Be gentle with months worth of groceries in electronics.

The move to make them thinner and thinner, means there cannot be metal inside the hinge mechanism.

Caveat emptor.

I've definitely encountered laptops that were flimsy enough that moving their lids from the position they were used to was a risky move.   
Also yeah, I believe "manhandle" is used regardless of the sex/gender of the person accused of doing it.

Gonna need some help from the Aussies on this one...

I am currently spitting rage at the YouTube and Google search functions because they are being exceedingly unhelpful in turning up the "cooking show" skit where an Australian fellow shows how to make gỏi cuốn, Vietnamese spring rolls... And which more commonly-found items can be used as substitutes for the exotic Vietnamese ingredients such as "coriander" and "carrots". Eventually ending up with a vegemite sandwich and calling it a spring roll.

I clearly need to search for the thing by name if I don't want an endless list of either legit recipes or utterly unrelated comedy shows. Unfortunately, I have no idea what that name may be.

EDIT: Found it... That took entirely too long. Only came up when I made a guess and trimmed youtube's search results to only show videos under 4 minutes. First thing on the list was "What if meat eaters acted like vegans" which has absolutely nothing to do with Australia or spring rolls, but hey... Algorithm!

Does the idea of cable management exist in bikes? Is it as important to bike people as it is in computers to computer people, to the point that it's the first thing people roast your stuff for?

Some backstory: I got this bike basket that's supposed to clip on to the handlebars, and I tried it. It turns out that if anything pushes on the shifter cables, it will screw up the ability of the bike to shift gears, and it just gets "stuck" on some gears, especially when shifting up. I've removed it for the time being. Now I'm wondering if people actually do manage the cables on their bikes like people do for PCs. I know it's done to some extent (look at any working bike, and its cables are usually tied to the frame somehow), but is there, like, some community of bike enthusiasts that are really particular about cable management?

Why does drinking milk or water make me more thirsty instead of quenching my thirst? (I drink freshwater, obviously, not saltwater)

Either you're a silicon-based alien lifeform which doesn't drink water, or having something to drink reminds you that you're thirsty. If you're otherwise distracted, you might not notice, right?

Right, so I should just drink more throughout the day. Thank you.

If you drink water even when you're not thirsty, you will be less likely to become thirsty.
More water beyond merely quenching your thirst is better for you than only drinking the minimum for quenching.

There comes a point when youíll just pee out any water your body seems superfluous.

I personally find milk makes me feel thirsty because it coats my throat, so I need to drink something else to get rid of that feeling.

Certainly!  And peeing out that extra water helps flush your system of toxins.  You can tell by the color of your pee whether or not you're drinking enough. Look for very light purple color (j/k, very light yellow).

be careful, you can in fact drink too much water.

Granted, you need to be belting back the hydro pretty hard to do that, but people have in fact done it.

Generally a better bet to just do what your body is telling you to, rather than try to compensate.
