You can get an app for your smartphone that will scan pretty much any bar code and get the correct result in some cases. If it's a generic item, it will get the correct one (a grill or electronics or something like that), but if it's an area specific item, it's rare for the scanner to find it.

In fact, I've got a good example:
The store brand cookies don't show up in any databases, but when I scanned the box for my headphones, they showed up instantly as marshall minor headphones. So, the barcode on generic items that can be found internationally in the same packaging will be found by pretty much anything, but something like store-brand is not likely to show up.

same barcode may scan as a different item in another system. so if the code is scannable then there is an item with the same code in the system.
still, they sell chips in libraries? wouldnt sticky fingers get books dirty?
#74 - wheresthefudge (06/17/2014) [-]
Ok, ok, yeah, Universal Product Code and all that
But at the same time, a store that doesn't sell a product isn't going to have that product in their system. When I used to work in retail people would bring stuff in from another, similar store that we don't sell and it wouldn't scan.

Franchised products use the same barcode in multiple stores
Universal Product Code

Eh, kinda. When a big place like Lays (the makers of Cheetos) make a product they give it a universal product code. This code is usually 12-18 digits long. First half of the code is the company number. Like 012345, would be Frito lay, and the second half would the product code, like 987654 to ID the product.
If you put it all together you get a UPC. When the UPC is scanned in, its entered into the inventory system as a specific name. Like Jalapeno Cheetos.
TL;DR? The guy that gave her the tattoo is an ass, and used a bag of chips for inspiration.

yeah, different bar codes are essentially numeric ids for a database. Depending on the DB being accessed, the same barcode (if it is a good format as the poster before said) can come up as different things. A group in my programming class made a mobile app that depended on scanning UPCs and used some free DB online. They could scan just about anything that you could buy in the supermarket and it would come up right.

There are many formats of barcodes-- The postal service, railroads, healthcare, and different countries all have their competing standards which use width and spaces of the bars to represent numbers differently.
UPC, I think, is the most common one and it would make the most sense for a tattoo artist to pick that standard. And, I would imagine, choose a number at random which could correspond to anything depending on the store.

Over character limit:
My favorite story though is from when I came out to my roommates. It was on my 21st birthday; we'd just finished barhopping and had gone home to continue drinking with our underage friends. Everyone was pretty well blasted by that point (the minors were drinking while we were at bars) and we played circle of death. If you're not familiar with the game, it involves a deck of cards face down in a circle. You draw one on your turn and do whatever rule is attached to that card. Now, I'd had this idea in my mind for a while of a really good rule to make if I drew a King, and this was a perfect time to use it. The rule involved two other cards in the game, 6 and 4. The original rules are that if you have a penis you drink on 6's and if you have a vagina you drink on 4's; my rule was that instead of drinking for what you've got, you drink for what you prefer. The very next card was a 6. My roommate nearly fell out of his chair when I clinked glasses with all the girls playing.
Congrats on coming out

Curved swords are generally better at cuts then straight swords. The reason being that you've got a smaller point of contact when the blade lands a cut, so more force is directed to a smaller area. This is also part of why an axe can land a stronger blow then a sword, even though the two weapon could weigh the same (the other reason being center of balance is closer to the axe blade, whereas a sword it's closer to the hilt, making it easier to move around and defend with).
I think the strongest contender for the best chopping sword is probably the Falcatta. It combines the properties of a sword with those of an axe, having a thick blade with the point of contact being a forward-curved blade. It chops into things very, very well, but at the cost of being less wieldly then other swords and thus more difficult to use defensively. It's also impractical to thrust with.
#42 - anonymous (06/06/2014) [-]
The curve also lets the connecting part of the blade do a sort of "slicing" motion, because most knives/swords/anything cuts better with mixed motion of pushing and sawing.

It was a genius way to make up for their terrible steel quality, the folding as well as the heat treating process. The form of the sword is still genius and when forged with modern steel quality leads to a beautiful weapon. But everything has it's place, which is why they had other weapons to use.
#44 - anonymous (06/06/2014) [-]
Maybe the steel is "terrible" in some aspects as durability, but the steel can be polished and ground out very fine, I read it is because they used this "iron sand".
#45 - citruslord (06/06/2014) [-]
Here's a good cross section of something on the left, which would meet modern standards, and the right, which wouldn't. That's why I'm such a fan of the Viking Ulfberht and Damascus, they had modern quality steels hundreds of years before Europe and Japan even had decent stuff.
