comment C'est quoi le féminin de « sauveur » ?
À l'usage courant (au Québec), j'entends souvent «sauveuse» être utilisé, à peu près aussi souvent que «sauveur». Au parler le déterminant est parfois mis au féminin aussi, donnant «ma sauveur». Je ne l'ai jamais vu à l'écrit, par contre, alors je ne sais pas si un «e» est ajouté.

comment Thermometer reading
I don't think mercury is compressible, and therefore, that the expansion of air has any effect. The pressure of air will increase, but that shouldn't affect the mercury.

comment My BionX system won't work in assistance mode, and makes a weird noise
@ChrisH It is a pedal assist, and I do think it is a problem with one of the sensors; but the noise worries me a bit, and I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the wheel several time, making sure it was as level as possible, and solidly held. The only option I see is the freewheel, and I'm just hoping someone here's had a similar problem before.

comment My BionX system won't work in assistance mode, and makes a weird noise
@PeteH I'm in the middle of nowhere and can't afford to surrender my bike to a BionX dealer for more than a few hours, since it's my main (only) form of transportation. The bicycle works fine without the assist, I'm just frustrated that the assist doesn't work as the road is full of hills and mountains here.

comment Is there a way for an astronaut to rotate?
Chris Hadfield made a video about this, where he makes a complete turn without touching anything, by twisting his body.

comment Why does blowing on a candle put it out but sucking doesn't?
I read in a bio of Richard Feynman, about a fun question, that has a similar answer: what happens if you invert the flow in one of those rotating water sprayers? In what direction does it turn?

comment Quelle est la meilleure traduction de « vanilla » en programmation ?
Pour le yogourt en particulier, je crois que c'est ambigue: la vanille est souvent ajoutée au mélange nature; j'aurais tendence à penser que c'est de là que viens l'expression, mais je ne saurais pas comment trouver des références pour ça. Dans le traducteur de Google, nature est traduit comme plain, et vanille comme vanilla. Somme toute, je crois qu'en anglais vanilla yogourt veut dire yogourt à la vanille, même si dans d'autre contexte vanilla veut dire plain. C'est en français, où nature en est venu à vouloir dire à la vanille dans ce contexte.

comment What causes ballpoint pens to write intermittently?
I'm claiming it's a bug due to an earlier bu fix. As in, it's better to hav a pen that stops writing some of the time than a pen that leaks all of the time.
