Re: mathiverse's journal

Well things went down fast. In a sense I believe that working on our underlying issues is more important than getting freedom from work. And work is often not the actual issue, it just happen to be the activity in your life that better exposes your weakness. In my mind, escaping from it may be neces...

Re: mathiverse's journal

My experience with problems that are hard to solve like this is that usually they are the result of a combination of complex factors which are not central to the experienced symptoms and thus elude diagnosis by simple analysis. Usually they are blind spots very well hidden from our conscience and lo...

I like it! How does one praise the Trash Gods? By generating less and less trash maybe? That could actually be it! Since I’m working on that the past months. I just hope I didn’t make them mad by sounding entitled heheheh

Re: Something From Nothing Log

A work colleague came to me today to ask my opinion on a certain potato recipe. Then he asked me if I want his used electric oven, free of charge (he bought a new one). And just yesterday I was talking with a friend how it’s been a while that I don’t have roasted sweet potato hahaha Yeah I know I co...

I don’t have interest in the kind of content you are trying to produce, but if you are a coding novice, I can potentially save you a lot of time by giving you my highly opinionated take on how you could approach this. PM me if you are interested. No costs involved, just for the fun of helping someon...

I didn’t mean to imply anything regarding your responsibilities. It’s only that the way you first wrote, it seemed like you were taking that huge decision on an impulse after reading sad letters, which to me sounded pretty much like the emotional equivalent of going shopping while you’re hungry; not...

Re: mooretrees journal

I don’t think we’re saying the same thing nor do I believe the article you linked helps your point. My position is that a more comprehensive analysis should be done and that should take feelings into the equation, but I think it’s far from guaranteed that your feelings will point you in the right di...

Re: Brooks: "The Nuclear Family was a Mistake"

steveo73 and daylen: the nature of the field you are studying limits the methods you can use, but it’s science all the same. For example, the fact that you can’t easily get an actual sample of the atmosphere of a planet in another galaxy, constrains you to analyzing the spectrum of light reflected/f...

Re: mooretrees journal

That’s touching and all that, but remember that you don’t really want to do math using your heart. Be sure to analyze it in a more comprehensible way that includes the other important factors other than how it feels.

It’s such a sweet deal that DirectTV have if paying 115/month is actually the cheapest option NFL fans have! I’m impressed they have this kind of hold in the market.

tony: too lazy to dig it out now, but yes, the value has been proven to be positive in all levels of the introversion/extroversion scale. Which doesn’t mean they will all like the same kind of interactions.

Re: Something From Nothing Log

Kid’s are not born asking for Christmas, we teach them and we can teach them something else. There’s nothing intrinsically special about those traditions that can’t be substituted. I for one, never had that kind of ritual and never missed it. The vast majority of the world doesn’t even have this tra...
