Is this black mold?

I just took this old range hood down in my apartment.

Would I be able to clean this shit out without getting sick?

Is a little bit of black mold okay if it's hidden behind something?

If I cleaned it out and sprayed the areas inside the wall that I am unable to clean with some antifungal spray would it work?

Wouldn't the water in the spray eventually make the mold grow back?

More pics incoming

Halp pls

So I've been working on this for the last few weeks. Those are decellularized fruit and veg (broccoli and strawberry). I used a weak surfactant solution to slowly wash all the cellular material away leaving only a mostly cellulose scaffold behind. The scaffolds can be used to grow almost any new tissue you want and one researcher is using a similair technique to grow human cells on apple-derived scaffolds. I was thinking about growing some cow muscle on the strawberry and make some meat berries. I made a video going through the whole process https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddGR7YKuN-I

Flat metal prongs are supererior from a manufacturing and implementation point of view, plus the ubiquitous ground prong is very important, plus devices that are phase-sensitive need to have the hot and cold prongs matched correctly.

All this other shit is just an identity crisis of countries who got electricity later and wanted to be unique.

It's too early for body hacking to have a good risk:benefit.

However, if people want to be pioneers, I say let them. Maybe we can learn something from their stupid risk taking.

The one body hack I've seen that comes close to being viable is inserting a small magnet (2mm) into the side of a fingertip in order to better sense magnetic and electrical fields.

If the surgery is conducted with proper technique and sterile procedure, and the magnet is properly prepared and coated then it's not significantly more dangerous than some body piercings and it gives a definite advantage.

The problem is that it generally has to be self surgery by an amateur without any anesthetic, which IMO pushes the risks into the unacceptable range.

Can someone explain live/neutral wires to me like I'm retarded? I've just realised I have absolutely no fucking idea how electrical systems work.

I went back to basics, and I understand what a volt is, what an amp is etc, but I don't understand the distinction between live and neutral wires, how a current flows to ground, or how current returns to the generators.

Help?

live kills you.
neutral doesnt. this is the only thing you need to know. so when wiring shit up, make sure the neutral is tied to the chassis and not the live wire. same for wiring light sockets. make sure the live is the pin contact and not the ring.
>>
>>972292
so live wire is an electrical charge from the generator/battery. a neutral wire is a wire that grounds back to the generator/battery, and if connected to the live wire there will be current flow.
if you connect a neutral wire to a ground (such as you), nothing happens, because there's not electrical imbalance. to use the water metaphor, it's like introducing a damp sponge to an empty cup.
a live wire connected to a ground, on the other hand, will transfer current until the electrical charge has reached...

Ok I feel stupid for needing to ask this, what the fuck is this called?

Its an outlet/socket/power I get that, but I'm looking up 2 things.

First, one that has a usb built into it.
Second, one with leds built in for a hall light.

But I cant for the life of me look for this myself without knowing what the damn thing is called.

Because this would be a useless thread after one post, lets also make this a general "my question is short, many people could answer it, but no idea where to put it" question thread.

thankyou

Sorry if this is the wrong board, dont really post here.

I recently inherited some old goblets that are silver but theyve become black and the inside of them has wine stains (from the acidity?).

I'm wondering not how to clean them, but whether I should or not? I don't plan to sell them but is it better to keep them in their original, faded condition?

It really depends on the items themselves. If these are a set that were purchased retail-like then its probably safe to restore them to silver shine to get the most value out of them.

If they are are made by a particularly desired manufacturer or artisan, and wanted by collectors for their provenance; then its best to leave them as-is until directed otherwise. (This is few and far between, we're talking about silverware used in the Lincoln household and stuff sold at places like Tiffany)

Coins you never ever clean.

>>973621
If you plan on keeping them to possibly use and hand down, then clean away.

There's commercially available silver polish available at stores. But you can make some at home.

Start easy by using an aluminum cooking pot or a steel pot lined with foil. Fill it with hot water and a tablespoon of powdered laundry detergent. Drop it in and wait for the tarnish to disappear as much as it will, about a minute or two. Rinse in cool water and dry off. A good portion of the heavy tarnish will be removed.

Next I find ketchup works best. Ketchup on a rag and buff away. Rinse, wash, and dry once polished.

Its possible that heavily tarnished silver will have lost its smooth polished sheen even once the tarnish is removed. In this case youll need a fine buffing compound and plenty of elbow grease.
>>
>>973628
Yeah, theyre hand made and have the makers mark on them. I actually couldnt find anything by the maker that wasnt cutlery though, so i guess that means theyre slightly rare?

>>973630
thanks, they've gone pretty dark and have not only wine stains but also corrossion on the exterior from oily fingers. Do you use the buffing compound aafter the pot method? Is that redox reaction with the foil?
