  • Ah wait, I should’ve read the article lol:

    The law allows local authorities to name “designated providers” of a certain scale – currently only achieved by Apple and Google – and require those providers to do three things:

    • Allow third-party app stores on their devices;
    • Allow application developers to use third-party billing services;
    • Enable users to change default settings with simple procedures, and offer choice screens for tools like browsers;

    And it forbids them doing three more:

    • Engage in any form of preferential treatment of their services over those of competitors in the display of search results without justifiable reason;
    • Use acquired data about competing applications for their own applications;
    • Prevent application developers from using features controlled by the OS with the same level of performance as the one used by Designated Providers.

    So Google already allows 3rd party app stores and lots of settings (although these are always hit and miss, even in the custom ROM scene - I can’t get pocket detection right now and my phone keeps doing things in my pocket), but the 3rd party billing and choice screens applies to them.

    Thank you for the correction on my terminology. Oil doesn’t dissolve in soap and soap doesn’t dissolve in water, emulsions are not solutions.

    However, I think the general point about oil attaching to the soap and the soap attaching to the water still stands. I would still say that “the soap attaches the oil to water” isn’t quite right. Per your statement, the soap attaches to both oil and water on opposite sides of the molecule, so the oil isn’t really attached to the water - at least not directly. That was the thing I was trying to articulate.

    But you also remind me of something a chemistry professor once told me: it’s not the soap that cleans, it’s not the heat that cleans, it’s the physical scrubbing action that cleans. Soap and heat make it much easier, but if you add soap and hot water to a burnt dish and leave it to soak, everything will stay exactly where it is (separated) until you add physical energy to move things.

    Depends how much soap you use.

    The soap doesn’t work by attaching oil to water, the soap attaches to the water and then the soap is carried away by the water. Oil doesn’t dissolve in water, but oil dissolves in soap and soap dissolves in water. So long as you use enough of an excess of soap and mix it together enough, you’ll be fine.

    Definitely agree with rinsing the drain before, during, and after, though. Especially as most mammal oils become less viscous (slightly runny) at higher temperatures.
