How does an audio signal travel through a wire? What format is it in? How is it encoded? How are microphones different from pickups on an electric guitar?
Electricity. Electric. Electricity. Microphones use a diaphragm, pickups are just directly connected.

A microphone has a diaphragm which vibrates when sound waves hit it. The vibrations vibrate a permanent magnet which has wires wrapped around it. A magnet moving near wires induces a current. At the other end you have a speaker which has electrical wires wrapping around a permanent magnet. The current near the magnet induces vibrations. The magnet is connected to a diaphragm which vibrates the air creating sound waves.

Here's how sports teams do it:


NHL - Atlantic and Metropolitan are Eastern, Central and Pacific are Western. Illinois status - Midwest


NBA - Atlantic, Central, and Southeast are Eastern, Pacific, Northwest, Southwest are Western. Illinois status - Middle East


MLS - Eastern and Western, no subdivisions. Illinois status - Middle East


MLB - country-wide conferences rather than Eastern and Western. Illinois status - Pure Middle


NFL - country-wide conferences rather than Eastern and Western. Illinois status - Nexus of Chaos

Rename the Middle East to the Midwest and rename the Midwest to the Middle East.

The actual answer from the source on why the mountain states have so much suffocation is that health insurance uses absurdly broad categories with a lot of sub-categories to track trends and this is only looking at main categories. All of the mountain states there are Suffocation: Hypoxia. They are all low oxygen caused by altitude.

Who?: That's what I'm trying to figure out. Ideally 4 to 6 of you who can be on Skype at the same time.
Why Skype? We are using Discord for chat these days, and it has voice built in.

How is that a week in review? That only goes through the 2nd day. There are 5 days of horror missing.

I've not used Discord for anything before, I'm open to it though. Someone tell me how to do it and I will possibly do it, depending on how others feel.

Launched into space from a huge catapult, my corpse forever orbiting the earth

This would not put you into orbit. Every orbit must include the orbital position that last had force applied, so your corpse's orbit would have to include the height at which the huge catapult released you and the atmospheric drag would prevent even a complete orbit. You'd still die though, just your corpse would arrive as a fiery ball somewhere else on the planet.
