How to Check Real USB Capacity in Linux Terminal. Bought a couple new dashcams recently (that use Super Capacitors instead of batteries, better for the temps we get) and I wanted to verify the long-life Sandisk SD cards were legit. This worked great.

One thing to notice - you will need to go delete all of the written data after running the check, it does not remove any of the files it writes.     #>

The 'right' color of raw beef. Interesting, even if an advert for the packaging company I enjoyed the dig into the science.     #>

The World’s Deadliest Thing

It has been estimated that in its pure crystalline form, six grams of botulism toxin, about one teaspoon full, would be enough to kill 200 million people. The lethal dose when consumed orally is around 30 billionths of a gram, which if you want a relatable comparison, is about the same as if you cut a single poppy seed into ten thousand equal pieces and ate one of them. It is an amount so tiny, it really doesn’t make sense.

Shake Hands With Danger (1980). This is pretty amazing.     #>
