:cry: For one thing, all creatures inhabit the same environment, pretty much, yet each are vastly different. You have ants and humans living on the same land. If we evolved from bacteria, then those fish type creatures etc. what made us evolve this much, and yet a lot of bacteria, animals and creatu...

If they can mashup songs why not mashup movies? I would like to see a mashup of 1) "the DaVinci Code",staring Tom Hanks with (2) "The Sons of the Desert" starring Laurel and Hardy. The former is a drama thriller that portrays the Free Masons as an all powerful cabal that has inf...

the first half will intermittently run backward and be deliberately confusing, and you will get really bored waiting for the second half in which, you know, you will be given an explanation, so you stop caring, but by the time you get the explanation you realize you completely stopped paying attenti...

@shlaifu The Sapolsky book ‘Behave’ look like one I will have to check out! My reading list is growing. Thanks for the recommendation. With all due respect, I’m not sure I get your point about existentialism being ‘American’… And yes, existentialism focuses on rejecting dogma for sure.. which precl...

personally, I always thought the whole self authorship etc. in existentialism is very.... "American". I mean, you're born into a society, your biology, your genes adapt to your environment as you grow up and at some point, this product of biology and circumstance, decides "I will make...

it's made up of molecules which really, really badly want to get rid of a proton. That makes them highly reactive in a specific way which is called "acidic". Acid, in chemistry, means a specific way of reacting with other molecules, (there's different definitions of acids). And fluoroantim...

an anime feature based on Tayiou Matsumoto's "Number 5" Manga. Vladimir Sorokin's "Blue Salo" and of course, Jodorowsky's "Dune". I've seen the Dune film staring Patrick Stewart. I don't know anything about the other two. Patrick Stewart Dune - better known as David Ly...

A reasonably attractive Latina shows off her figure in a tight dress, and all some guys can see is "Tax the Rich"... :scratch: What is up with that? to be fair, the letters are pretty big, and red, and it's ironic. But AOC and "the squad" couldn't do anything against the neolibe...

reminds me of tge anecdote in Richard Feynman's memoirs, in which hets asked whether electriciry is fire, so the Rabbi's can determine whether it's acceptable to use on Shabbath. The episode ends with one of the most brilliant humans of the 20th century just shaking his head over the anachronisms in...

I would have greatly appreciated it if the school psychiatrist had given my parents a manual on how to manage an autistic child, and particularly explained to my father how smacking a child will not stop him having a meltdown over some minor things. Things eased up a bit when I learned to self medic...

But... a lot of us have mad skills in narrow areas, often paired with an intense interest and particular memory - while having blank spots and an odd lack of skills in other areas.
the confused-but-brilliant professor trope, basically. Not quite the idiot-savant, but halfway there.

Every thread quickly devolve into a Trump hatefest. Sadly, that buffoon has done a great deal of damage to the status quo in US and world politics. That and the fact that individuals with certain leanings tend to think he's the second coming of Christ make it really difficult to have a political di...
