Think carefully about it - the sun is shining all the time - and most of the time energy from it goes someplace that is not Earth. Space based solar is the only sustainable energy solution - Blue Origin is working on it - so are the Chinese. "Green" technology is a strange term - Plants lo...

I once saw a English-as-a-second-language speaker as a question on a forum: When you go into a shop and someone asks "how are you?" do they mean it? Most answers were to the effect "no they do not mean it" - but I thought the answer had to do with degree instead of "mean it&...

Is there docs someplace describing what the different on screen indicators mean in "View Your Posts"? I see there are arrows for things I haven't read in a while - but sometime there is an arrow even if I have read everything in a thread and I am the last one to post. If I log out and log ...

How to discuss sports when you really know nothing about sports: Smile and nod a lot. If someone is wearing a team logo smile big and say "Go (name of team)". Wait for someone to say something then look thoughtful and say "well - you know what happened last year." (everyone will ...

A wireframe 3d graphics thing I wrote in Basic on an Apple IIe computer when I was in HS/College.
I sometimes think of rewriting it in a newer language on a newer computer.

In the movie "Rainman" the autistic character, played by Dustin Hoffman would get very upset if he missed his favorite tv show - which was broadcast at the same time every day. Some people on the spectrum do experience this I think. Sameness and rules are very important. My relationship wi...

Is getting answers to questions online a social skill?

I often find online forums trigger my social anxiety. Is this a cognitive distortion / catastrophizing?

I was just reading where Apollo 12 almost crashed when it was hit by lightning and the gyroscopes stopped working. Luckily it was the electrical bus which has failed and when they switched to "auxiliary" everything started working again. It later landed on the moon. Lots of "kids toys...

Tony Stark is a hacker and he doesn't seem to have any trouble getting the girl - he does have real problems with narcissism and using tech like a drug. I was very amused when I mentioned MIT in conversation and my daughter looked up and said "Did you say MIT? Tony Stark went MIT!" - it is...

Ask 10 people. In "What color is my parachute" it says "the best way to learn about anything is ask 10 people". Posting on a list might get 10 replies but you are likely to learn more if you have 10 one-on-one conversations with people you know. Do you know 10 people you could / ...

I once had a job where they gave me a desk and a computer and forgot about me for a week. I used the time to explore the computer system and learn as much as I could. I would listen to co-worker's conversations and ask questions, and walk around and look what people had hanging on their walls in the...

I get overwhelmed at meetings too sometimes. I attend some meetings like this where people come in with no camera on - this can reduce a feeling of vulnerability. Zoom also has a chat / text feature which allows you to make comments without having to wait for someone to finish talking and can give y...

Ok - I have always been confused if the word was pronounced "like-en" or "l-eye-chen" - so now I know. My son did a study of coral - they are symbiotic too. Some people think that the Mitochondria either are or once were symbiotic to humans and other animals - that was where Geor...
