  1. If anyone, or anyone's kid(s), is planning on watching the second season of 13 Reasons Why, please note this warning for the last episode. There is a specific scene that concerns an important social problem in community, but is so graphical that lots of viewers were left shocked and aghast. Truth be told, I'm confident that we (members of this forum) ought to be intelligent and educated enough so that we need not be confronted with this scene for making us attent of this social problem in society. However, it was a really good series after all, and I enjoyed watching it. Except for that scene. It left me shocked, staring at a paused screen for about 15 minutes and I personally did not have any added value from that scene (38:24 until 39:49).

  2. Would a topic on chemical differences between the milk of herbivores vs. carnivores be biology or chemistry?

  3. Existential crisis for four continuous months. Set a record. Hope it's over by today. 

  4. Let's put all the Anti-vaccers, Flat Earthers, and Moon Hoaxers on several rockets and shoot them into the Sun... We'll inoculate everyone so they don't get sick and die on the way there, we'll make sure they orbit the Earth a few times so they can see that it's a sphere, and then we'll have the rockets fly by the Moon so they can see the lunar landing site but, after all of that, the rockets will take them to the Sun where they will never be able to infect others.

      I know a good nurse who believes dolphins are a space faring species. Really nice guy.

  5. Anyone here watched Grave of Fireflies? Just watched it for the second time: forgot just how brilliant and completely devastating that film is. Studio Ghibli is several orders of magnitude better than Disney.

      I guess it's the unsanitised that i like. I let kids watch far more violent things than princess mononoke, but maybe i'm just an irresponsible uncle.

      What Ghibli films would you deem too violent/adult? I can't think of any Ghibli film i wouldn't let a child of any age watch.

      I think both make family movies. Maybe they differ in the way they appeal to the adults though: disney go for humour (though i think pixar do that better), while Ghibli go for... well, just excellent storytelling and engaging characters.

      Yeah, it's a bit like watching Barcelona play football compared to Telford United. But then more people watch Telford play!

      It doesn't sound like the DUP will try to push an ultra conservative agenda. But it seriously undermines the peace process and makes a return to the Troubles more likely.

  11. Just noticed Beall's list disappeared. When, and why, did that happen?

  12. I just realized how to find percentages 100 times easier then before.

      Dude, you're well ahead of me: i didn't realise this until i was well into my 20s. But then i was stoned or drunk any time before then.

  13. I go to Norman Regional Healthplex at 7 am tomorrow for my hip replacement. Too bad I won't be awake to record the surgery. Wish me luck!!!

      Good luck.

       

      Wouldn't recommend watching orthopaedic surgery though unless you have a mighty strong constitution.

      Real fights are hard to gauge in the heat of the moment. But authorities have to act against vigilantism. It's possible you did the right thing and that they are doing the right thing.

  15. The more physics i learn the more i start to confuse the mathematical models for reality

  16. First exam out of 5 tomorrow. 23 days to go.

  17. Well, finished this semester with a 3.5. Hopefully I can keep it up

    1. Prometheus

      Prometheus

      So 3.5 is equivalent to 87.5% ? That sounds pretty impressive to me.

      Not been: seems bleak. If i head that way will probably go to the lake district.

  20. If my body font is Times New Roman, 10.5 pt, 1.15 spacing, then what should table/figure caption content size/spacing be like?

    1. Prometheus

      Prometheus

      If you know who is going to mark it you could cater for them: larger font for the visually impaired, colour scales for the colour blind etc... But i guess you would be considering these things anyway.

  21. The core decompression surgery I'm having on my left hip is just one week away...

  22. It's not worth starting a thread for this: am I the only one bothered by the notation 120/80 mm Hg? Why not 120/80 mm Hg/mm Hg? Or 120 mm Hg / 80 mm Hg?

      We should go SI with the Pascal, or kPa. Might kill a few patients while everyone gets used to it though...

  23. My PhD. supervisor passed away last night. I'd only known him for few months but i'm still quite shaken by it.

      Cheers. Still not clear on a new supervisor yet. Going to attend some undergrad quantum physics classes in the meantime so expect plenty of questions.
