Talk:1762: Moving Boxes
I think I've got some Dark Matter in a box left in my basement. Anyone knows how long you can keep this stuff until it expires? 220.127.116.11 13:36, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
- Mine is about 13.8 billion years old and still OK. But shouldn't about 3/4 of the boxes be filled with dark matter? --18.104.22.168 14:21, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
- Hah! Mine's 13.81 years old.
- It should be good for another 10^100 years or so. Give or take a few duotrigintillion years.
- Yeah - you've really gotta be careful about labelling that stuff - since it neither absorbs nor emits electromagnetic radiation, you're going to have to use gravitational lensing techniques to figure out which box it's in - and we all know how much of a pain THAT can be on moving day!

- When I last moved house, I methodically labelled every single box with it's exact contents. Several meticulously itemized boxes contained (amongst other things) stuff like "Acrylic art paint", "Rodent poison" and "Adhesives" - and the movers saw this and refused to move about a dozen boxes because they contained things that are liquids or hazardous materials. This was more than I could fit in my car - so this became a huge deal. So next time, I'm going with "Normal House Stuff". Seriously - just label them with the room you want them dumped in at your new home and a number...write the actual contents in a MySQL database...preferably with a photo of the box before you taped it up.

Protip: Label boxes you don't want the movers to know about with "Party Favors." 22.214.171.124 16:22, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
The explanation for Bison says they're "also known as buffalo". Not sure if that's technically accurate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bison Excerpt: "Although sometimes referred to historically as a "buffalo", it is only distantly related to the true buffalo."
- Yes, but colloquially, this is acceptable. For another example, see "Indian vs. Native American."126.96.36.199 18:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

I read the "shawls glucose kits" as "shawls, glucose [testing] kits", not as "shawls, glucose, kits"
