If no reference to wombats earlier in this thread, I would say a nice lump of compressed/concentrated hashish.

Note that ambergris is highly processed until it’s an essential oil capable of parfumerie interests. It is both a fixative and an aroma. At that processed point it doesn’t smell much like it did in totally raw form. How people managed to figure out that such a transformation could happen… is a mystery.

Two words: durian fruit.

Whoever decided about something that stinks like Fetid Roadkill Death from a half-mile away, “Hey, I wonder what that would taste like if I cracked it open and et the goop inside?”.

Confused dog. Just look at it. What’s the smell? Sniff, sniff, gotta sniff some more. LOL

Did you ever wish you could unread something? Like…

These are the cakes of cow dung molded by bare hands with a curvature to be able to keep stuck to the walls.

Tired


I consider knowledge valuable but it would not be me molding it with my hands.

Yeah, I learned about Durian fruit from a co-worker who was from Asia. Now get this… we’d made a trip to the local Asian market and in the snacks isle they had these really great wafer cookies. All kinds of flavors. And one… was durian fruit. I’d never heard of it before. And that’s when he told me about that infamous fruit. Later, we looked at a video on You Tube. First thing that came to mind when I saw a durian fruit split open—the belly of a face hugger alien.

Yeah, I learned about Durian fruit from a co-worker who was from Asia. Now get this... we'd made a trip to the local Asian market and in the snacks isle they had these really great wafer cookies. All kinds of flavors. And one... was durian fruit. I'd never heard of it before. And that's when he told me about that infamous fruit. Later, we looked at a video on You Tube.

I have successfully avoided durian in its many forms while a few friends repeatedly try to get me to give it a chance.  It's supposedly much better and less odiferous after freezing (or as a frozen snack).  I can smell the vanilla but the fetid and garlicky overtones just kill it for me.  BUT....I did see and buy those durian wafer cookies!  I mean the strawberry and ginger ones are fantastic, so how could durian ruin it, right?  Yeah.  Don't. 

Lots of peoples still burn dung for fuel, a little or a lot.  If I'm not mistaken it's still a common thing at Everest base camp using yak dung for the near constant simmering pots of yak butter tea.  People that spend enough time there often develop a particulate cough...not the cleanest burning stuff no matter how dry it is.  I've not been around yak, but have been around cattle and elk dung burning.  It's actually not that bad of a smell but it's unique - not like what you'd expect I guess.  That said, I guess you use what you have to use, but I'd never ever try to burn any typical poo from predators or water critters - special kind of nasty.  Bovines, ungulates, vegetarian munchers...stick with that.

If you take the numbers zero, 1, 2, 3 and 4, then divide by two, and then place the numerators in a square root sign, that is, radical zero over 2, radical one over 2, radical 2 over 2, radical 3 over 2 and radical 4 over two, you end up with the values of the ratio of the opposite side to the hypotenuse of a right triangle at zero degrees, 30 degrees, 45, 60 and 90 degrees. That is, the sine of 0, 30, 45, 60 and 90 degrees.

 

The cosine is the ratio of the adjacent side to the hypotenuse, that is, the inverse of the sine. Now, if we graph the sine function, we see that the slope of the sine function at 60 degrees is 0.7071, that is, a little bit less than a slope of 1.0. 

We also see that the rate of change of the sine function is equal to the value of the cosine function, that is, the ratio of the adjacent side to the hypotenuse is equal to the rate of change of the ratio of the opposite side to the hypotenuse.

 

That is, the directive of the Sine is the Cosine.  Every time I think of all this, it blows my average size mathematical mind.

Not for me if it doesn’t have USB-C and run Anduril.


Its its own cooling fin Big Smile
It can certainly fit a USB-C connector (or any other connector). However its storage capacity is nil.
But i am afraid it cannot accept Anduril

So you went off on a tangent, no worries. It’s just a sine of the times.

Never cosine a tangential contract. Facepalm

It may be more efficient to assimilate Wombats, the squareness is already in place.
