If that were the case monitors in say Maine would be different than in Key West. Even uselesss knowledge shouldn't be BS.

actually there be SOME truth to it. Monitors are adjustable for color correction and magnetic fields DO play a part in that. How much the earths field affects it may be debatable. The "degree" of color shift may not be perceptible to most users but i have found serious users such as photo editors and such do frequently ask for color correction and verification on their equipment. I used to spend hours calibrating monitors at a marketing company years ago.

Wouldnt turning the monitor 90 or 180 degrees have the same effect?

Gilligan of Gilligan's Island had a first name that was only used once, on the never-aired pilot show. His first name was Willy.

The skipper's real name on Gilligan's Island is Jonas Grumby. It was mentioned once in the first episode on their radio's newscast about the wreck.

The Professor's real name was Roy Hinkley, Mary Ann's last name was Summers and Mrs. Howell's maiden name was Wentworth.

Try it, it actually does. If you take a CRT and rotate it, the colors go all wonky. (The effect is most noticable on larger CRT's and on very precise CRT's like computer monitors with fine dot-pitch where very little deflection will screw up the color gamut.) The original Radius rotating monitors for the Macintosh had to degauss themselves every time you rotated them between portrait and landscape orientation.

Certian high quality larger CRT Televisions and computer monitors were indeed sold in northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere. (although it was just a factory adjustment on the same monitor, baring local AC plug issues 110v vs. 220v 50/60Hz etc... Or had a setup/degauss procedure so they'd run properly.

Didn't have the camera handy. The camel spider came into the tent, where it gained the mouse's attention. The mouse "pounced" (the closest word to describe the awsomeness of jumping a foot or so to land perfectly on top of the spider), and commenced to eat it alive.

Wasps are quite possibly the most evil fucking animal alive.

Several species of wasps paralyze their victims with their sting (but leaving it alive), and lay their eggs on it.

When the wasp larva hatch, they have a large supply of fresh food to eat. They larva doesn't bother killing the prey before they start to eat, either.

The drug named Amitiza which is used for constipation, means "from the behind" in roughly translated Lebanese.

So your saying my PC monitor won't work in Australia?

Something to do with the earths magnetic field?


Gotta hoist the BS flag on this one.

The earths magnetic field is not strong enough to cause disturbances
like that routinely. Only during massive solar activity would that even
be possible and even then unlikely.

Durring WW2, it was a common practice on fighter planes to load every 5th found with a tracer round to aid in aiming. That was a mistake. The tracers had different ballistics so (at long range) if your tracers were hitting the target, 80% of your rounds were missing. Worse yet, the tracers instantly told your enemy he was under fire and from which direction. Worst of all was the practice of loading a string of tracers at the end of the belt to tell you that you were out of ammo. That was definitely not something you wanted to tell the enemy. Units that stopped using tracers saw their success rate nearly double and their loss rate go down.

Ehhh, I don't know how that is calculated, but I have a hard time believing it.


ETA: Humus (organic soil colloid) has an absolutely astounding CEC (cat-ion exchange capacity) compared to layer-silicate soil colloids. If there isn't too much of it in the soil clay is actually a good thing-it is able to hold more of the nutrients plants need, clay soils in fact can be very fertile.

The soil order that dominates the great plains are the Mollisols.

I have a CRT computer monitor that I purchased in Ohio in 1999. It has seen use in Ohio, South Korea, North Carolina, and currently is in use in Florida (Key West actually, your mention of it made me remember). I have seen no distortion in color or any other abnormal display in any of those places. They are all in the northern hemisphere though. I should have taken it to Africa and tried to use it while I was in Kenya. If I'd known this I may have tried it.
