I don’t really remember how it is that I stumbled upon the Yarchive, (http://www.yarchive.net), but I’m sooo glad that it happened.
It’s just a collection of usenet posts that have been saved by some dude named Norman Yarvin. I’ve learned all manner of crazy things including:
Alternative refrigerants to R-134a
Shop practices for determining feed rates when milling
The dangers of feeding alfalfa to children
How to instantly tell if the media is bullshitting you about nuclear power
…and so much more. Short post, I know, but any time I find myself with 5 minutes to spare and I have my mobile phone with me, I’ll be on this website. It deserves awards. Bookmark it and enjoy!
