  • Commented on The ends of education
    I’ve always thought the problem with higher education was basically impedance mismatch. There are at least three semi independent goals we try to solve with a single process 1: Making better humans. I am totally convinced that advanced education in...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    I think that the most likely outcome of a tactical nuclear strike on a polish airfield would be a equivalent strike by the US on a Russian airfield I doubt they’d even ask NATO for permission One if the hidden...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    It’s really dangerous to generalize anything about the effectiveness of weapons systems based on what is going on in the Ukraine. They all rely on a functional combat doctrine and a competently implemented combined arms strategy and the Russians simply...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    You sir, win the internet for today...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    How many calories you burn while walking is a function of how far you walk, how much you climb (elevation gain) and how much you weight (including pack) A good rule of thumb is for flat ground for a 180lb...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    Actually a reasonably healthy non obese person who tries that without properly training will make it about three days and then their feet will give out I actually just did a 100 mile section of the pct after training for...

    So why all this car hate? Cars do not have to be gasoline powered anymore, even the early gen electric cars are pretty good, give it another twenty years they will be amazing And they work when you break your...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    One reason diplomats write things down in treaties is to make sure there is no future misunderstandings about what is agreed to . Humans in no way can operate by memory of what was agreed to verbally, that’s pure insanity...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    It’s partly Putin ego (my country is much reduced from the Soviet Union, I want to change that and I am running out of time), partly distraction as his polarity declines, partly legitimate fear of being hemmed in by NATO...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    my biggest fear is what happens after the Ukraine falls. Setting up / supporting an insurgency based out of the south west seems to be a reasonable next step for the western powers. The terrain is conducive and supplies could...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    The “rent not own” model for cars is exactly the model that Uber and the other ride share platforms are betting on. They want to take it a step further then leasing, since garage and driveway space is a large...
  • Commented on Omicron
    I will ask but the university of Michigan ones on coursera look ok They will general want you to learn the basics of the language first and then move into the data science part but here is one as a...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Regarding python and data science There are fairly good (and free) online university classes for modern data science. I’d really consider taking one those, there is a ton of (well meaning ) disinformation in this thread (along with some fairly...
  • Commented on Omicron
    So todays Omicron headlines look less cheery The UK doesn’t see evidence (so far) that Omicron is any milder Hospital rates are starting to spike in London I think the best metric to track at this point is hospital occupancy...
  • Commented on Omicron
    “Intelligence” in the common parlance is not what the term is referring to There are absolutely things that we commonly refer to as “intelligence” that are outside the bounds of the “general intelligence” definition used in psychology. Everything social for...
  • Commented on Omicron
    IQ tests are generally bad tests that only vaguely manage to measure the thing they are trying to measure But they are attempting to measure a real thing That real thing is called “general intelligence” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/G_factor_(psychometrics) There is a “...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Over the next few years virtually everyone is going to catch some strain of Covid. This is a thing that is going to happen that no power or technology currently on earth will prevent. However, there is strong reason to...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    “ All of the IT developments that I can think of that would count as really revolutionary in the past half century have been older (and logically simple) ones where the hardware became cheap” Mostly agree, pretty much all computer...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    Yes especially once AR takes off Read a book awhile ago where a guy built a suit covered in led displays running advertising banners Since everyone walked around with augmented reality contact lenses on all the time, the ad blocking...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    “ As much I would wish otherwise, there is just no financial, scientific or defense justification for a large sustained human presence in space. ” The thing is a majority of what humans do isn’t rationale. So understanding there is...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Musk has always been pretty upfront with why he wants to go to Mars. He thinks the human race is a lot safer and has a lot higher chance of not going extinct if it becomes multi planetary . He...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    “ The condition of life of Mars will force everyone to become the equivalent of a professional SCUBA diver, with respect to life support equipment -- or risk dying because someone else got sloppy.” They talk about that in the...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Imagine you put the AR goggles on your head. The computer overlays your observed reality with an exactly perfect diagram of where to cut , where to sew. It process images and diagnoses on the fly . Or the automated...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    I think as others have said this is a big underestimation of the advances in medical technology. The idea that we could pull off a Mars colony and we are still stuck With glass vials and metal needles doesn’t fly...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Google has banned parlour from the play store Apple has given parlour 24 hours before they do the same Reddit has banned the Donald trump subreddit Tech has gotten the big sticks out (finally)...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Trump just gave a speech that sounded like it was written by Mitch McConnel and delivered with a gun to his head. I think the republicans are coming down hard hard on him , basically “do what we say or...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Greg It’s not at all gray. It’s not remotely gray. You should stfu and let people do their thing. You or your wife simply don’t have any kind of say in what restroom anyone uses ....
