I mean yeah that sounds quite reasonable
What does that even mean?
I do like that he can only think of averages in terms of ‘protein shakes’ though.
I mean he (it’s probably fair to say he’s a ‘he’) didn’t say anything remotely like that...
There is, I think, a large enough subset of women who find hypermasculine guys who can be sometimes a bit mean sexy that the tactic is effective. The sort of woman who says she’s “very traditional” and is looking for someone who “won’t take her shit”. They’re out there.
are you saying that Chad is there for the wrong reasons?
also his name is “Chad” and, like, look at him
It’s still kind of funny imagining Jane Goodall saying “anyway, whatever”, though
It follows from the above description, as you may have noticed, that the fact computers in practice are implemented using electronic circuits is *not fundamental to their operation*. This just lets us make the circuits really small. You could just as well build a computer using pipes (water flows = 1, water off = 0),… Read more
This could conceivably be several different questions; I’m sorry if I’ve misunderstood.
1) How does the computer ‘know’ what the input and output signals mean?
> It does not. It just deterministically gives some output given an input. The point of software is to ensure that, given a particular input, the output is… Read more
2) breaks into two questions: why is there a speed limit, and why does light move at the speed limit?
Suppose there were no speed limit. Then it would be possible for arbitrarily distant points to affect one another arbitrarily quickly (by emitting a speedy enough influence). This would, in essence, mean that *all… Read more
You store the signal as light that you’ve set to oscillate in just such a way as to exactly mirror (this isn’t quite right in practice) the oscillations in the sound. Then, you shine that light out, possibly bouncing it off the atmosphere. It doesn’t come to your house specifically; the microwave towers just spam it… Read more
This depends. Would you say your goal is to fall in love with them, for them to fall in love with you, or to cry when criticized?

No. If they can walk through walls (they can’t) it has nothing to do with vibrating at the correct frequency.
The diseases mutually annihilate, releasing all their rest mass as gamma rays
This is actually surprisingly complicated (and sorry for the long post, which kind of ran away from me). There are several effects that hold you stable, but their relative importance is hard to predict and depends on the exact bicycle in question.
1. When you spin something about an axis, it “likes” to continue… Read more
If you jump out of a spaceship into outer space, you will die. What exactly kills you? How long does it take?
Some atoms act like tiny little bar magnets but normally they’re all pointing in different directions so they cancel out. But if you make them all line up by holding another magnet near them they can align and then you get a second magnet. If you then heat the second magnet enough they stop lining up and it isn’t a… Read more
