  1. You could also right click on the link and choose the first option.
  2. Just out of interest, is there anybody here who voted for Trump previously and will be voting in November, who will actually change their vote due due to this?
  3. LOL, I've heard that 50% of any population are below average no matter what you compare them on.
  4. Notice which day this was posted. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galactic_year
  5. As someone who seems to be unaware that the media is manipulative, you are.
  6. You tell me. In Australia the current federal government has replaced the head of the Australian Broadcasting Commission with an ex NEWSCORP boss to ensure that their journalists are impartial. Note that the channel bringing this news (below) is just as impartial as the ABC and no different from the partisanship of US media. ABC CEO
  7. Although biased polls might possibly influence the vote of some of those who aren't too bright. If the choice were between a guarantee of 'getting into heaven' or winning an election what do you think Trumps choice would be?
  8. That's funny, I always got the impression that those 'deplorables' who vote for Trump thought the media stole the election through its biased poll 'figures'. But then again I did read an article today that related their opinions to mass psychosis/conspiracy theories.
  9. Yes, the ancient Greek play "the Clouds" written by by Aristophanes around 2 thousand 4 hundred years ago is a good example of what's happening now. It was no wonder that the Athenian League lost the Peloponesian war to the Spartans shortly after and democracy came a cropper. The hard bit is how to prevent the sophism, that mainly benefits the wealthy, from causing the Academy to be burnt down. The neo far left may think it's smart but it is just being used as a weapon by the neo far right of the left to cow the traditional left wing rump and implement those draconian neo right wing policies. The neo's are the cause of the problem and they just drive their victims to Trump because they label all of them them as bigoted and racist.
  10. In Australia over the past 35 years the (right wing of the) left wing political party has implemented more draconian right wing policies than the right wing party themselves.
  11. Possibly but there are expected to be many clashes in the year of "Engineering a bigger and better Warsaw Ghetto 'legit'", courtesy of the NY Yacht Club lawyers fan club.
  12. Yes, he's probably having enough of a struggle working out his opening speech for the "Countries who prosecute their political opponents' convention.
  13. With an average of 20 Palestinian deaths per Israeli death, before October 7, I suppose the reduction of this ratio and the cessation of hostilities in Gaza both depend on how right wing the politicians in Israel and the US are.
  14. 100% + 25% = 125% = 125/100 200 * 125/100 = ? 250 * 100/125 = 200/1.25 = ?
  15. "Matilda" is his swag or backpack, i.e. a rolled blanket that contains his possessions, which rests on his back, and is tied in 2 places by a strap that goes over his right shoulder. His Tucker bag is at the front so that the food doesn't taint his swag and vs vs. If you are under 50, maybe, but for the wrong reasons. Back in these unenlightened 'colonial' times, first nations people were considered to be possessions of the UK monarch, while poor white itinerant bush workers were considered fair game. https://www.nla.gov.au/digital-classroom/year-6/documenting-federation/themes/national-identity#
  16. grayson, the following is just my opinion. Also don't forget about proper and improper integrals. Elementary Calculus an Infinitessimal Approach http://Reference link: https://www.math.wisc.edu/~keisler/keislercalc-03-07-17.pdf https://arxiv.org/abs/physics/9807044v2 At a conceptual structural level improper integrals in calculus are integrals, usually with limits from +infinity to -infinity, that converge at their limits. Refer H.J. Keisler, p367, Definition to P370, examples 7, 8, and 9. If they don't converge then they are indefinite integrals which are entirely different. Refer H.J. Keisler p370, example 10, diagram 6.7.10 That doesn't mean that indefinite integrals don't play a part in our calculus or physics as an indefinite integral that cycles between +infinity and -infinity, as a sub function of a higher level function, is a valid proper use of indefinite integrals. Refer H.J. Keisler p224-5, Definition and example 8, diagram 4.4.6 second equation with u and substitute infinite limits. A valid proper integral of any form is not equivalent to a valid improper integral because that is the underlying conceptual difference between classical and modern physics as discussed by Hilbert and Klein above. While Emmy Noether provided the conceptual symmetries of relativity Arthur Compton provided the final piece of the puzzle by experimentally and theoretically uniting the wave and particle natures of electromagnetic particles between 1922-23. He was awarded the Nobel prize in physics for his work in 1927.
  17. That reminds me of some childish nonsense, or is it? The boy stood on the burning deck, (boys tend to do high risk things like that) his feet were full of blisters, (they would be) the fire burnt his trousers off, (it would) he should have worn his sisters. (if he did his trousers wouldn't have burnt off) One fine day in the middle of the night, two dead men got up to fight, back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other.
  18. In comparison we're at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War stage before WWII, so there's still a lot of weapons to be tested by all sides.
  19. That's an interesting article. The heat generated would probably be a major problem for large pours unless you had many slaves handy.
  20. A stream of in transit photons? Modelling the locations of in transit photons emitted from rotating sources Above is a link to a thread in an Against The Mainstream (ATM) area on another forum. I was penalised twice for posting what was regarded as ATM by moderators so I posted there and the last post by the Administrator was as follows.
  21. I did the MBTI test and the D.I.S.C. assessment in the late 1980's and there was one notable difference between them that was removed from D.I.S.C. in the early 1990's. The D.I.S.C. assessment back them had two extra categories called Overperform and Underperform that identified when someone had selected all of the 'best' results or all of the 'worst' results. It's a real pity (for the world that is) that they removed the one binary method of detecting psychopaths/sociopaths in business/politics but then again, if they left them in, they would just rename the categories 'executive material' these days. Just for the record I was a MB ENTJ and D.I.S.C. had 3 categories for how you perceived yourself, how you perceived how others perceived you and the difference between the first 2 so I tested Achiever, Developer, Developer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DISC_assessment
  22. There is a gap in posts between 5 hours ago (4 hours on the image in your post) and last Monday at 7:25 am (it is Thursday now) so you should assume that something was wrong with the site for 3 days.
  23. In Herodotus "the Histories" he describes the meaning of 'happiness', as summarized in the following abstract, so it wouldn't surprise me if the meaning of 'success' is similar'.
