The eight "Super Draco" engines near the bottom of the capsule are intended to pull it safely away from a problem with the rocket it is riding on to orbit. Their fuels are di-Nitrogen Tetroxide and monomethyl- Hydrazine. These are nasty chemicals, but they have the advantages of being liquid at room temperature and "hypergolic", meaning they burn on contact with each other. This eliminates the need for an igniter, like a spark plug. That's one less part to go wrong in an emergency.But what is the anomaly it shows? I just see it sitting there and then boom.
In space talk, "anomaly" means, "JFC. The damn thing done blowed all the hell up."I suspect it was taken from at least a mile away, at a high zoom level.

like "drinking a milkshake through an empty toilet roll tube"McDonald's is being called on to stop its roll out of paper straws in the UK and Ireland, amid claims that they "dissolve" in drinks.
The fast food giant is switching from plastic to paper straws at their 1,361 restaurants after customer pressure.
An online petition calling for a return to plastic straws has so far garnered more than 35,000 signatures.
I've been using the same plastic drink straw for a couple of years now at home. So long as you rinse it out, and you are the only user, there aren't any health hazards. This is one of the Wendy's shake straws, which are fat and sturdy to withstand the suction from a thick shake. So just bring your own.McDonald's plastic straw petition: Call to ditch paper straws

That works because you plan ahead. A lot of people won't (or can't) do that. They are the sort who continue getting new bags for grocery shopping instead of reusing.I've been using the same plastic drink straw for a couple of years now at home.

Will it survive? I'm not sure who'd be eager to pick it up - even it were all Pence-safe, you're looking at a fair few staff plus huge traffic costs without any means of sustaining it other than ads and user data being sold to some 300 vendors. (Literally. When GDPR first became a thing, Yahoo offered a control panel, with one option being disabling each vendor in turn. Just for fun, I did so, and copied & pasted each pageful as I went)
From your mouth to the CEO's ears..Pornhub could buy it.
Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said in an email to BuzzFeed News that the porn-streaming giant is extremely interested in buying Tumblr, the once uniquely horny hub for young women and queer people that banned adult content last December to the disappointment of many of its users.
Price said that restoring Tumblr's NSFW edge would be central to their acquisition of it, were it to actually happen.

I certainly hope so.OK folks, I see (in IRC) that a Product Manager is aware of the wide impact… it's being handled quickly
To avoid the draconian locks that John Deere puts on the tractors they buy, farmers throughout America's heartland have started hacking their equipment with firmware that's cracked in Eastern Europe and traded on invite-only, paid online forums.
Tractor hacking is growing increasingly popular because John Deere and other manufacturers have made it impossible to perform "unauthorized" repair on farm equipment, which farmers see as an attack on their sovereignty and quite possibly an existential threat to their livelihood if their tractor breaks at an inopportune time
