    The coffee was hot enough to conduct electricity. Which is to say it was liquid.

    Water ice and water vapor both conduct electricity, so more data needed

    It would have to be liquid to be in enough quantity or be in contact with enough components. Either way neither here nor there. The point is that the temperature of the coffee was not the issue

    I am pretty sure nobody here actually thought that the temperature of the coffee was the reason the panel melted.

    Cockpit controls are not expected to be exposed to direct fluid contact so there's no need. They are about as waterproof as a laptop.

    The pessimist in me is going that they are obviously going to be in a few cases - drink spillage being an obvious one :) (and some models that have opening windows in the cockpit, could lead to water getting into the cockpit while in the ground in a storm - to then short circuit something later in flight.)

    What seems weird to me is that for this size of commercial passenger aircraft, some level of water proofness isn't already required in the cockpit instruments/controls - I'm pretty sure pilots have been eating/drinking coffee for a while while seated in the cockpit.

    It's cheaper to give the pilots cups with lids. Which wasn't done here. But will be done in the future.

    This shit is just unreal: Theives steal 18k gold toilet. It seems there was an art exhibit at the Blenheim Palace in England (Birthplace of Winston Churchill) where an Italian artist had put up, and fully installed, a fully functioning solid gold toilet... worth over 5 million dollars. Seems these thieves went in the night and just took it out of there, leaving a real mess behind. Odd thing is that no one was watching the toilet since it was setup for public use during the exhibition. They can't have cameras in there because of this and there is no guard either. They've caught an older gentleman that seems to be connected with the crime, but this heist seems to have been well coordinated.

    I just... no words. I can kinda get displaying it, but actually setting it up and allowing people to use it and people actually using it boggles my mind... let alone the theft.

    Man brings clown to redundancy meeting
    When copy writer Josh Thompson received an ominous email from his bosses asking to discuss his role at the company, he knew he was facing redundancy.

    The human resources department at FCB New Zealand encouraged him to bring a "support person" to help cushion the blow, an option that is legally required in New Zealand.

    But rather than bring a family member, a friend or even a pet, the part-time stand-up comedian decided to splash out NZ$200 (£100) on a clown called "Joe".

    "I was working - because I had a job back then - and I got an email and the email said: 'Hi Josh we'd like to meet with you to discuss some matters in regards to your role,'" he told the BBC from Australia, where he has been "making the most of not having a job".

    "Basically I sensed that this was going to be a redundancy ... so I thought I might as well try to make the best out of this situation," he added.

    "Joe" accompanied Josh for the redundancy meeting, where the clown made balloon animals, although he had to be told to stop a few times as it was difficult to hear above the screeching of plastic.

    "Boy, oh, boy, are they noisy," Josh said.
    Man, I wish I'd thought of doing that at my last job.

    I'm just really loving that there's a van leasing firm called Vanarama.
    I mean, the rest of the story is nice and all.
    But, "Vanarama"? Knowing that's a thing is making my Monday morning slightly more tolerable.

    Sure, for a value of up to, I don't know, maybe 1.5 million or so, the insult and insurance may be sufficient compensation. But once you're talking 5 million or more?
    I don't know, maybe it's just me.
    On the other hand, gaining the notoriety of having had his art stolen by Trump, and thus actually profiting by an association with Trump would be a novel situation for an artist, I'm sure.

    American Pharaoh - good horse, or best horse?
    He also enjoys visits from figures such as Vice President Mike Pence, who visited the horse on the farm in March 2018 while campaigning for Garland "Andy" Barr, (R-Kentucky). Except apparently Pharoah's interaction with the former governor of Indiana didn't go so well, at least in Pence's version of the events, per multiple reports.

    On Friday at a policy retreat for House Republicans in Baltimore, Pence claimed he was bitten so hard on the arm by American Pharoah that he nearly collapsed. The point of the story was to offer a metaphor for Republicans' hopes of retaking the House next year.

    Edit: As was pointed out elsewhere, we are talking about a highly trained animal under supervision. If he bit Pence, it's likely because Pence antagonized him.
