Baby powder is just ground Talc (a type of rock), how the hell do you fuck it up so badly that you end up making it carcinogenic?

A quick lookup on Wikipedia says that talc is often found alongside asbestos rock. To quote Cave Johnson, presumably of Johnson&Johnson (the other Johnson also being Cave Johnson would in fact make sense in context): "If you feel a shortness of breath, a persistent dry cough, or your heart stopping, that's not part of the test, that's asbestos."

I'm trying to de-clutter.  In preparation for taking to a recycler, I'm factory resetting two old iPhones I had in my desk drawer*.  My old 4S, which is the immediate predecessor to the SE (original) I'm still using, and my wife's old 5C that doesn't even have a functional screen (good thing you don't need a screen to do a factory reset!).

Not really a WTF in the traditional sense, but more like "why do I still have this stuff in my drawer."

Incidentally in the reset it automatically "upgraded" the 4S to iOS 9.3 and the 5C got 10.3.

It's somewhat astonishing that we're already, what, 11 generations beyond the 4S? (My wife and I got "matching" 4Ss right after we got married, fall of 2010.)

Why recycle them if you could sell them at a pawn shop and get a few bucks instead of the nothing you'll get from recycling them.

Do they even take smartphones at pawnshops?  I certainly don't see them at thrift stores.  Probably because it's too much trouble (and not-inconsiderable technical know-how) to factory-reset some archaic piece of technology which is practically worthless due to planned obsolescence.

This isn't even anti-Apple, this is all smartphones.  They keep forcing updates that "improve" the UI, non-consensually, and coincidentally they make older phones run slower.  And literally yesterday I've got my mom telling me that her phone is "wearing out" because it's slow to respond.

That is why, at least for android, there is a moding scene and you can custom rom the shit of a lot of models, at least the main ones of each major brand.

I've seen smartphones at pawnshops and thrift stores and they're usually really cheap.

Very small WTF: I was making a pull request for CDDA (minor adjustment to fix an oversight regarding tilesets) and a line looked unusually offset in the editor so I added a few spaces to line it up with the rest of the indentation and apparently it was a graphical glitch on my end because it got edited to how it was before (the change itself wasn't rejected, woo).

The amazon page is hilarious because it looks like the image of the book spine is stretched...but that's just what it is.

WTF with payoneer?! I need to have some really simple questions answered and they simply do not reply. My payment this month depend on this.

They state they are not "verifying bank accounts from Venezuela" currently, but then stated that I could send any kind of bank document of other country to certify the bank account, which one? They wrote it in such way is impossible to tell. I immediately replayed "Does have to be under my name? Do I actually need to verify the bank account to use the account or I can use it without that?" Response over a week now, only silence.

Wrote several emails and post on the ticket, no response.

Just read a brief article about a pilot who decided to become a vegan to help the environment after they saw unsustainable farming practices from the air.

I'm WTFing it because apparently the CO2 impact of 2lbs (1kg) beef is the same as burning 1.5 gallons (6 liters) of gasoline, and they are a pilot.

Beef is by far the "most impactful" meat, so if you eat mostly eggs, fish, poultry, or pork it's even less of a benefit to give up.  Interestingly, a very CO2 equivalent per unit mass food is apparently... butter (I'm skeptical; the website I'm looking at says it's 25 times! more CO2 equivalent than the same mass of milk...)?

I wonder how one would calculate the CO2 footprint of 1kg of human meat.. At what age should one kill and butcher a human to have a net positive CO2 effect from the emissions prevented by killing it over the emissions used to grow it?
