Actually, it's not if she's referring to Bugsy Siegel. He died in '47. She would've been 25 in 1940, so I'm guessing it's closer to the 40s.

So crazy. She lived through the entirety of prohibition which must be high school memories for her.

They've been considering putting someone on Mars for a long while.


NASA is developing the capabilities needed to send humans to an asteroid by 2025 and Mars in the 2030s – goals outlined in the bipartisan NASA Authorization Act of 2010 and in the U.S. National Space Policy, also issued in 2010.

Ha, alright here you go

I started spray painting the bottom black as you can see, but friends said it'd be a lot cooler if I left the natural lego colors so I stopped. I kind of winged it. I ordered a mini-ATX motherboard (6"x6" I think) and just measured about that with space and built it as I put pieces in.

It's not a bad server. It's quad-core AMD with no graphics card (headless server), 8GB of RAM, and a 64 GB SSD. It was running Debian linux.

I used super-glue on each block to really hold it together, which I sort of regret. I'm a bit paranoid it's a fire hazard. I left it on for a few days and everything seemed fine, but I didn't want to risk leaving it on while I was gone.

It's pretty sweet. Definitely a fun little project and cool art piece. I pulled out the SSD and dropped in another server but I can always revive this guy if I want by adding a hard drive. I have another home server running so no need to risk fires though.

Edit: Temperature ran about 80C on the CPU. I had a massive heatsink and you can see that huge fan, and there was only an SSD besides mobo, ram, and CPU. I think it would've been fine running 24x7 considering ABS plastic melts at 100C, but I was too paranoid to leave it running constantly.

Seriously, just tell me the next fucking turn. Don't say "it's not coming yet". Don't say "just go straight". Tell me what street it is, and the direction I'm turning.

I swear to god, I'll be in the left lane and about 10 feet from the turn she'll say "TAKE THAT RIGHT oh what the fuck you have no sense of direction"
