    Good article about some of Trump's pardons

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/21/us/politics/trump-pardons.html Stuff like this should be used to disabuse the Trumpista base of thinking that Trump is an honest businessman.

    Celebration Parallax - a factual statement is good or bad depending on who says it

    segment starts at 7:05 Maybe it is a form of gamesmanship, letting your side know you are doing well/poorly in its goal but not wanting the other side to notice it and do something about it. Freezing the competition. Group 1 --- "Hey guys we are doing great in reaching for goals A and B!"...

    Learning about the Lagrangian and path of least action

    This is some cool stuff that spans classical and quantum mechanics. I watched a couple excellent derivations of the Euler-Lagrange equation and how it applies to action then I played around with a simple example. Take a projectile shot up in the air with initial velocity, v0 and follow it...

    I think this political cartoon is worth discussing as it is all side that do this

    (shup up? oof!) For example, the fairly successful attempts to ban abortion in many states by anaconda constriction of zoning and bullshit regulations not related to medical needs. Rightist may be more guilty of this on the whole, but that does not mean leftists are not doing this. Why...

    Why Don't We Murder More White People? Interesting video...

    The statement at 10:19 is the most intense in my opinion. Not sure what to say about this, it needs to be seen to be understood. It was shown in 2019 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. https://ybca.org/art-critical-conversations/ It was uploaded by a guy on my political team which is...

    Anyone know much about the glycocalyx in blood vessels?

    Just learned about it a few days ago, pretty wild. Having an intact glycocalyx is important to health for reasons that I won't pretend to fully grasp, but starting with good nitric oxide production and smooth blood flow and protecting the endothelial cells. But I am seeing a claim that just...

    Can Obesity Be Contagious? Video about the science and the scientist

    Here is a 2015 paper about it https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4517116/ Lot of stuff here in the episode about human psychology and the virus involving guilt, shame, blame and so on. One thing is that it seems to make more fat cells that means more safety factor of having fat...

    A logic puzzle that use a dummy variable to probe and whose value is never discovered

    This is a specific version of the "knight and knave" logic puzzle. It uses "ja" and "da" which mean yes and no, but you never find out which is which and don't need to. Also, for now ignore the Random character. here is a good statement of the puzzle and a solution...

    Is the Chinese government literally cucking Uighur men who are held in camps?

    This seems too crazy to even be real, but it is China, so who knows. https://www.businessinsider.com/china-uighur-monitor-home-shared-bed-report-2019-11

    Can covid-19 like viruses be beaten without antibodies produced?

    What non antibody immune system responses would kill it? How often would this happen? Also since antibodies are all tailor made by definition, how can a test be sure that a negative antibody test just did not test for the one YOU produced? There has to be a somewhat narrow design tolerance of...
