Anyone know if this can be caused by overheating?

I've got one of those HCT 48" LCD HDTVs I've had for a couple years. Was on the Gaystation 3 earlier and noticed an intermittent horizontal green "static" like line that seemed to be teleporting all over the screen. It seemed to be a flickering band or series of bands 2 or 3 pixels high. It didnt really obscure the image, but it was pretty annoying. I shut the TV off and noticed the air coming out of the top vents was hot as hell, and that room doesn't have air conditioning right now so the ambient temp was high. After cooling off for 5 mins or so I turned it back on and the flicker was gone for a while. After ten minutes of play it came back, and when I dropped out to the dashboard it got REALLY bad, with genuine flickering and tearing in parts of the image.

I shut it off to cool again and checked it a few mins ago, it was fine again so I unplugged it to let it sit overnight.

Just overheating, or do I have a more serious issue you think?

I've actually been having monitor problems too.

My monitor works fine but occasionally goes black with some weird blinking and the power button blinking like its on standby.

Thankfully a good whack causes the monitor to I guess reset itself with the monitor start screen and all that popping up before returning to normal.

The fact that I'm apparently a techpriest is cool and all but I'm probably just going to be looking for some cheapo monitor or LCD tv next payday.

Problem with tvs is it doesn't seem like modern tvs are anything but widescreen and I hate widescreen. I actually have a fairly new widescreen monitor that I don't use because of that.

>Jeff Davis, a libertarian solar installer and AM radio talk show host running for Hawaii governor this November.Davis isn't what you'd call a frontrunner in the race. His campaign lacks funding, and his hardline libertarian views aren't likely to gain a huge amount of traction in Hawaii. (Five of the seven state governors in its history have been Democrats.) But one part of Davis's platform definitely resonates locally: His ardent support for solar power and a desire to cut Hawaii's reliance on imported fossil fuels.
...
>In Waikiki, his pickup truck pulled over to the curb, and Brody and I squeezed into a single passenger seat. “Brah,” Davis said, turning to me, “you are in the third world right now. This is the democratic socialist banana republic of Hawaii.” He swigged an orange-colored drink, and then threw the plastic container out the window.

>We drove north up Paoakalani Avenue with Brody practically sitting on my lap. “Can you wrap that seatbelt around your shoulder,” Davis asked, “because what we’re doing right now is illegal.” He swung the truck left on Ala Wai Boulevard and pulled into a parking lot where a large Hawaiian man was smoking.

>“That’s blind Mike,” Davis said. “He’s an old-school bass player.” Davis jumped out of the truck and handed Mike a CD of guitar songs he’d recently recorded. Mike walked up to the passenger window. “What do you see?” Davis said. “I can’t see shit,” Mike replied.

>“Explosive growth” in solar, HECO’s Jim Alberts recently explained to Greentech Media, “is creating unprecedented safety and reliability challenges.” He apologized for slowing down the industry. “We know how frustrating it is for everyone,” Alberts said.

>Davis wasn’t just frustrated, he was furious. “It’s conceivable these idiots could shut down the entire industry and send us all to the unemployment office,” he said.

Nuclear power... has a bad reputation. Even though it is the safest in terms of casualties per kilowatt generated, the waste it produces is the most dangerous. Uranium enrichment facilities and certain breeder nuclear reactors can produce fuel for nuclear bombs causing international crises when belligerent or enemy countries try to build nuclear power plants (Iran, North Korea, etc.). Infamous disasters like Fukushima, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, etc. really soured popular opinion to nuclear power. But a promising variant of nuclear power is within our grasp that uses a plentiful and cheap metal called thorium that heats a liquid uranium fluoride salt at high temperatures but low pressure in a very safe way and only producing a minuscule amount of low-grade waste (10 year half-life).

Kirk Sorensen discuss "Thorium" at TEDxYYC 2011.
http://youtu.be/N2vzotsvvkw
Kirk Sorensen is founder of Flibe Energy and is an advocate for nuclear energy based on thorium and liquid-fluoride fuels. For five years he has authored the blog "Energy from Thorium" and helped grow an online community of thousands who support a renewed effort to develop thorium as an energy source. He is a 1999 graduate of Georgia Tech in aerospace engineering and is also a graduate student in nuclear engineering at the University of Tennessee. He has spoken publicly on thorium at the Manchester International Forum in 2009, at NASA's Green Energy Forum in 2008, and in several TechTalks at Google. He has been featured in Wired magazine, Machine Design magazine, the Economist, the UK Guardian and Telegraph newspapers, and on Russia Today.

He also taught nuclear engineering at Tennessee Technological University as a guest lecturer. He is active in nonprofit advocacy organizations such as the Thorium Energy Alliance and the International Thorium Energy Organization. He is married and has four small children.

  China shows how nuclear energy can be accident proof
http://youtu.be/q5kxa94PE6Y
Published on Aug 23, 2013
With the global spotlight firmly back on the safety of nuclear power, following Japan's Tsunami and the problems at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, China is looking at spearheading efforts to make the industry safer, much safer.

The Chinese are investing millions in research into reactors powered by the element, Thorium - a metal, proponents say, as common as lead, and one, which, despite some concerns, would lead to power plants with fewer safety issues as well as other benefits...

SOUNDBITE: Wang Kan, Tsinghua University Thorium Research Team, (speaking Chinese):

"Thorium-based reactors certainly have advantages. The energy release from Thorium is greater than from Uranium, the by-products from using Thorium are less toxic than from Uranium, and it's much harder to make weapons from those by-products."

Public outcry, following the problems at the Fukushima plant, led to Beijing putting a freeze on approvals for all new nuclear power stations, and safety checks at all 25, currently under construction...

However, with Chinese electricity consumption growing at more than 5% a year, and its current reliance on fossil fuels to generate that, unsustainable, it's unlikely the crisis in Japan will dampen China's thirst for nuclear power...

HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio - A man who worked in a morgue admitted to having sex with female corpses while at work, federal officials said.

Kenneth Douglas, of Hamilton Co. , Ohio, admitted in court that he sexually abused three corpses while he was drunk or on drugs, but he had sex with up to 100 bodies, he said in a deposition.

"I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down," said Douglas, who worked the night shift at the morgue from 1976 to 1992.

A jury might conclude the former coroner and morgue director failed "recklessly and wantonly" to supervise Douglas, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday in allowing the suit to continue.

The panel cited evidence that Douglas' supervisors were aware he was drinking and also having sex with live women while on the job, WCPO reported .

Douglas' wife testified in a deposition that he reeked of sex when she picked him up from work. She said she called the coroner's office and reported him, but the morgue supervisor told her to stop calling.
The families of the three victims sued the county in 2012.

Douglas, now 60, was convicted of gross abuse of a corpse in the cases of Karen Range, Charlene Appling and April Hicks in 1991 and 1992.

The militarization of Mayberry and military police gear.
Reddit's Gun Community Takes Aim at 'Novice' Over-Militarized Police in Ferguson
This photo, which features a camouflaged police officer sitting atop a mine-resistant armored truck in Ferguson, Missouri, with a decked-out rifle, has been widely circulated as evidence of how militarized the American police force has become. To the trained eye, it's also suggestive of how poorly prepared those police are to be militarized.

Reddit's gun aficionados are pointing out that the rifle is so loaded with conflicting gadgets—a flashlight, "red dot" sight, bipod—that it demonstrates that the officer probably isn't very familiar with using it. One user, who owns two similar weapons, called it a "novice" setup. Others called it "goofy," "HORRIBLE," and a "waste of taxpayer dollars." It's also part of a trend—many of the rifles being used in Ferguson have the same setup, which baffles the gun owners and enthusiasts over at r/Guns.

"[I]t's a really goofy and impractical setup. If that is a standard configuration then they are wasting a lot of money for no other reason than to look like characters from Call of Duty," thereddaikon wrote. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/reddits-gun-community-take-aim-at-novice-over-militarized-police-in-ferguson-0814?trk_source=popular

As some of you might know I've been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I've been taking supplemental LevoThyroxin for 3 days now and I can't fucking believe what a difference it has made

-I though I was getting a decent nights sleep at 8 hours, fuck me I slept 7 hours and I was up like a rocket, and I don't get cotton candy for a brain and jello for muscles in the afternoon.
-When I eat my hunger goes away right after or at the end of the meal, this is a new experience for me, used to be if I ate a normal meal I'd be hungry for 30-45 after I ate.
-My flatulence went down like 50%.
-I don't lose concentration or interest in what I'm doing nearly as easily.
-I fall asleep much faster and I don't wake up during the night nearly as often as I used to
-Depression mostly gone.

My quality if life has went up so much it's amazing. Now excuse while I kick myself in the ass for not asking for a full set of bloodworks much earlier or I might have been done with this thing years ago.

Great news bro.

Unrelated, but other happy thoughts, my bro was just telling me about our cat "Big Friendly". The other day he was hanging out with the neighbor cat doing one of their cat adventures. We've got a double fence on one side and they were walking along the top of it. Apparently the neighbor cat wanted to overtake Big Friendly, but they're both too fat, so the neighbor cat fell off the damn fence.

Good times.

Hey a fellow Hypothyroid sufferer, specifically I have Hashimoto's disease.

Levothyroxine is just a synthesized T4, it's chemically identical, if someone tries to talk you into taking "natural" thyroxine, don't do it. "Natural" thyroxine is taken from animal thyroids and contains T3 as well and is much harder to control for consistency of dose.

Depending on the form of Hypothyroidism you have you may need to take T3 supplements as well, but that is more difficult to test for and must be done over repeated tests over a few months.

If you have any specific questions I'll try to answer them or point you toward resources for answering them. Congratulations on getting diagnosed and getting supplements, I know it changed my life considerably.

My mother-in-law found this in the property she bought... it's on old church. She is wondering what this is use for

"we aren't sure what these were for. found them in a cupboard in the second church in Windthorst..they fold in half, about 20 inches high."

My best guess is stand for food tray. Someone said they may have been trestles to support a coffin whilst in the church. But looking at it, it can't support much weight.

Anyone want to take a guess or maybe BG has full info on them...
