    Was confused and thought you were arguing the origins of the song. Deleted once I saw you corrected. My bad.

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    Gotcha, yeah I was thinking OK being relatively close to say AZ that likely has a big amount of power not being used. But yeah I guess you cannot just open up everything in one or two states and cover a dozen states.

    For OK in this case what is stopping them from asking states out of the weather blast to ramp up production to counter their shortfalls? Bottlenecks in transmission lines?

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    Yeah, I guess I was thinking that if Durant needs power they cannot go to a plant 20 miles away in Sherman they have to go to AR or KS. Not sure I understand the intricacies enough but that seems like it limits there options some to back up against TX.

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    I think the crux of the issue is TX and OK built power grids to meet max demand mainly in summer. Iowa and other places have more versatile power(winterized) that is built to handle surges even in cold weather. It also helps Iowa and pretty much every other state can draw from neighboring...

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    I was looking around for fun. Guess which state has the highest % of wind power... Iowa at 37% Guess how many people experienced crazy outages over this last storm... almost none... I only saw a few thousand people have a temporary outage because of the storm which is likely typical from snow...

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    Yeah, the Mpemba effect is named after the person who discovered that behavior in ice cream in Africa. It does happen in some rare cases but I trust MIT to have a more logical answer. Not sure how evaporation would come into play in a pipe. The bigger issue is most hot water heaters are located...

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    Yeah for sure. Management picks the cheaper bid that is constructed for the 50 year storm cause the 100 year storm prep is too expensive.

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    NG wells have water vapor in them just like anything else. It is coming out of the ground where water exists. When it get's too cold you hit a cloud point like a humidifier. That then condenses on the wall and in valves and can freeze. I remember speccing equipment mostly in WV and PA. Then did...

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    https://engineering.mit.edu/engage/ask-an-engineer/does-hot-water-freeze-faster-than-cold-water/ That hot water freezes faster than cold water thing is mostly myth. It only happens in super random scenarios. Like if the water vaporizes from being so hot then freezes. Or in open containers in a...

    Bitter COLD in Oklahoma!

    I know brown outs caused at least 3 big gas plants to go down in Texas for the company I work for. So gas may be in shorter supply too. On the front range they were asking people to go easy on gas usage too since wind turbines were iced up and plant demand spiked.

    Hot off the presses! Me a commoner without a legal degree asks: "Hey need to pick your brain about a legal scenario. Would it be fair to say that an argument like this could be made in court and that it would hold water? "What about case XYZ with similar facts?" My friend whom is a lawyer...

    Wait, when I pointed out the incredibly pedantic behavior that I tried to ignore for a bit. Your reaction is to go on an unrelated lecture and tell me I should listen because I am in the presence of a licensed attorney? I feel like we are just in a troll response loop where I point out pedantic...

    I didn't dismiss it. I was making a joke at how far down in it we were. Your gut reaction was to tell me I didn't know what the word meant and that we weren't in it. You literally argued that we weren't actually talking semantics. That was my point. Oh and the reason I didn't point it out...

    One for the highlights for me was when I was literally posting definitions while discussing what a definition should be and I sarcastically said "No matter how far we dive into semantics". And your response was to give me the definition of semantics(as if I didn't know) to say that we in fact...

    When discussing legal terms on a message board. You can't use the terms in a way a Lawyer would when writing in a legal journal. No... you must go so deep into legalease that it cannot even be discussed unless you are a lawyer. Even then you don't expand on anything. You just point out to others...

    We'll have to alert Brian A. Jacobs that he was wrong with his below statement and that he doesn't understand precedent too. We kinda glossed over the specifics of what he was wrong about it but we did firmly establish CowboyJD is right according to CowboyJD. "In federal criminal cases...

    In certain contexts it can be that simple and in others I don't think so. Like I think in the court of public opinion of someone's character it leans more to being that simple. But when things lean towards violations of laws or border on something that could lead to someone being sued. It needs...
