Fun as gently caress in War Thunder, especially in Arcade Mode where it gets more zoomies.

160 miles road range for 160 gallons, so yeah 1 mpg, or about 0.45 offroad at a whole 75 miles range.

They have a whole happy page about the cave complete with pictures of the whole family crammed into it. Apparently it was "the most popular Boy Scout cave in Utah." They went twice just months before it closed.

I got three different messages over the four hours, one saying that the maintenance break in 4th of April should end soon. One was "unavailable", other one was "Go away" and the final one said that "we are doing some quick maintenance".

So you have the breaker locks or you don't, hotswapping live poo poo and making changes on the "production" version is OSHA as poo poo, as far as software engineering discipline is considered.

Yes, and while I know that I am being a pedantic rear end in a top hat about this, their redirects and "Go aways" did not work or gave wrong ideas so that was done improperly from the viewpoint of software engineering OSHA.

So loving probate me on this if I am incorrect.

The problem with doing business in reality is that you need to find the happy medium between spuriously lax and spuriously careful. Medical devices programmed like web forums will kill people. Web forums programmed like medical device software doesn't really help anyone to any appreciable degree. Not especially a two way street.

quote:

The modified HF used in the Torrance and Wilmington refineries has around six to 10% of sulfolane added to reduce the chemical’s volatility, which should prevent the HF from forming a vapor cloud when released. Essentially the sulfolane is intended to ground the HF, keeping it in liquid form, and therefore not a danger to the public. However this amount of sulfolane, Hayati said, is too little a percentage to prevent MHF from exhibiting the same vapor cloud behavior as HF exhibits on release. And there’s another wrinkle: Sulfolane can prevent alkylation units, which are integral in the conversion process from crude oil to high quality gasoline, from properly functioning. According to Hayati, in 1997 the additive caused the MHF unit to malfunction, and the Torrance refinery reverted back to using HF.

“The public was told the MHF unit was successful,” Hayati says. “That was a lie. Quietly, behind the scenes Mobil cut the safety additive and to cover themselves threw in some useless proprietary ‘safety measures’.” [In 2016, the refinery was purchased by PBF Energy.]

That information was revealed in the Consent Decree Safety Advisor’s 1999 report, made after the city of Torrance sued Mobil following an explosion in 1987 that released around 100 pounds of hydrofluoric acid.

quote:

In April 2019, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health concluded that MHF should be phased out of the two refineries, as the current healthcare structure is inadequately equipped to respond to the atrocities that would result in the event of a chemical release. However later that year, the South Coast Air Quality Management District killed the push for stronger regulation, instead opting for safeguards that were suggested by the oil refineries themselves, saying “now is not the time” to phase out the deadly acid.

Phasing out the people liquefying acid cloud would be unfair to those already dissolved by it.

Jesus christ, I'm always amazed by how petrochemical plants are slap bang in the middle of residential neighborhoods in major US cities like LA.
Looking on google maps I see housing less than 50 meters from the plant itself and all the reviews are from residents saying it's effecting their health and they can't breath.

Also see Cancer valley along the Mississippi river and Baton Rouge.

e: USCSB has a video on the Torrence explosion.

If you're doing industrial control analogy, is there any industrial control systems with versions other than production? (I hope there is, because its interesting)

We had good times doing a bachelor thesis on PLC programming, and trying to program a welder for fusing plastic bags. We managed to turn it on, but forgot we also had to turn it off. Suddenly remembered when we saw the plastic burning. Luckily it was after normal work hours so nobody saw us loving up!

Did you miss that they were talking not about hydrocarbons (those are what the plant processes) but about hydrofluoric acid (which it uses).
I.e., bone hurting juice.

I just presumed HF/MHF was a hydrocarbon. I don't know anything about chemical terminology.

Now with less breakage.

In this case, it's refreshingly simple: hydrocarbons are made of hydrogen and carbon (only). They are the major components of oil and natural gas. As an example, methane is the simplest possible hydrocarbon: one carbon, four hydrogen around it.

HF, hydrogen fluoride, is even smaller: one hydrogen bonded (loosely) to one fluor.

Doesn't the fluorine love calcium, and basically ignore gloves/other PPE such that even a drop is enough to severely gently caress you up and possibly cause death due to your bones calcium being replaced by fluorine and breaking? Most acids are nightmare fuel, but fluorine was particularly loving awful.
