Dude, air isn't transparent. What else would be the reason why the sky is blue and the sun seems yellow.

Bonus fun fact: liquid oxygen is magnetic.

You have to pre-heat the oven for a long time for it to soak up heat in the walls. Without ghat the crust doesn't properly form and you get some weak bread that dries out quickly. With the oven I have I have to preheat for at least an hour for the bread to come out right.

'Safe' is a relative term. Here, it's safe enough to stay on the moon for a few months.

"China’s Chang’e 4 lander has made the first detailed measurements of the intense radiation that blasts the lunar surface and found that it’s safe for human exploration. The results give researchers a better idea of how much protective shielding future crews will need."

@sohkamyung Cool! Thanks! I was just thinking about radiation in relation to space exploration yesterday!

Long ago, these four concepts worked together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation force pushed to the main branch. Only the Git Bender can master all four elements and bring balance to the repository.

Hint: if you want to use wood for heating make sure it had several months time to dry. Better even one or two years.
