The only thing humans are worse at than not killing eachother is predicting the future. We always expect utopia, where in fact we tend to get smarter ways to do the stupid stuff we have always been doing. Jul 17, 2019 at 3:01 PM

        I agree with that statement. I also enjoy how we used to think that "flying cars" would be the future, or how in the 50's (in America at least), they tried to predict what our lifestyles would be in the year 2000. Boy were they dead wrong. Such an interesting species humans are, yeah?

      Sience fact: Wheelchairs are bad for you: It turns out people who use them have a worse health on average.

        It's a fact of which the realisation and wording of it is funny to some. :P

        Well... Not really...
        It's a joke, where the joke lies in that correlation doesn't always mean causation. Indeed, People in wheelchairs have a worse health on average, but that is not because the wheelchair made them have that worse health, that is because if you have a bad health, there is a change you have to get a wheelchair.
        Explained the joke for you, now it's no longer funny :P

        The context is that I am currently doing a course/module statistics at the universety of Amsterdam.
        Not as in: How to use the statistical methods, but as in: How to mathematically proof the statistical methods are true, even the very obscure ones.

        Thanks! :D I hooe we'll see some customers soon, as it's been really quiet unfortunately... We opened just around the time some random person appeared with infinite amounts of wool, sadly... I'm happy with my auction so far, though. :)

      I'll be away this weekend, and quite busy with other stuff the weeks that will follow, you're probably not going to hear of me often.

        Half of the teacher then underwent an oxidation reaction while the other half underwent a reduction reaction. It was a salt and battery.

        Woah, I hadn't had any issues all day, but when I opened your profile page my connection dropped. :P
        Anyway, I don't know what it could be, when it's different but the same per device and can be reset. Our issue ended up being the splitter, which wasn't useful anymore anyway as our phone also uses a digital signal.

      The paradoxical result of capitalism is someone, who has never been more satisfied about the world around them, sitting on top of their Maslow-pyramid, contently watching a society without a horizon, someone who is instantly saturated, and permanently insecure about the future.

      I got kicked out of the EMC buildteam for being too much of a perfectionist to be a good team member, and kicked out of the saphire buildteam (a official Mojang buildteam) for not being perfectionistic enough to be a good builder... The world is strange...

      "It turns out that a model involving 'imaginary time' predicts effects we have already observed and effects we have not been able to measure but believe in for other reasons. So what is real and what is imaginary? Is the distinction just in our minds?" ~Hawkin (simplified)

        This is a qoute I just saw and really loved. I really like the suggestion that the distiction between what is real and what is imaginairy would be imaginairy in the contect of complex numbers (and time), even though that's technically not what he really ment with it.

        (Imaginairy time mathematically is rotating time τ in the minkowski spacetime by π/2 in the complex plane, ergo τ = iτ where i = sqrt(-1))
