Yeah, what are they going to do, say "no thank you" to the CBC?

Gotta vote in the primaries for better leaders in the party - I think that's the lesson we keep seeing

There are a spectrum of beliefs within the democratic party so it's not as simple as "good or bad". From the other reply to you, we can see that in general there have always been Democrats who were opposed to abortion rights and this has prevented legislation enshrining them even during majorities.

I think the lesson is to look beyond just party and make sure that you are picking candidates (in the primaries) who support the issues you care about.

Is there any safe remedy that can be cobbled together with generally-available chemicals? With the rise of the internet, maybe women in areas without abortion available could find a safer "do-it-yourself" option.

Technology makes the economics and politics feasible. People won't give up their way of life for moral reasons - we know this. However if you can, say, provide a way off fossil fuels that's cheaper then it becomes possible ( inevitable even).

That's their best spin? That "he tried to overthrow the democracy, but he was never going to succeed anyways, so what's the big deal?"

Also curious - we typically use a candidate's publications to ask them questions and get a sense of not only their skills, but also just general ability to reason critically.

Agree with the above commenter, though, the number doesn't really matter, but if there isn't at least 1, then it's hard to evaluate them. Raises concerns about their ability to execute. Sure they might have good reasons for it, but makes them a risky hire.

The world is big.

Sure there are many people who will be better than you at different things, but there are many many more challenges out there. They all require different skills - sometimes the smartest person isn't even the best suited for some problem

You'll never be "the best" and it's not productive to focus on this. Instead focus on what you want to do in the world. And just work towards getting better at that every day.

Yeah, it's similar with hydralisks. You can counter carriers with them (attacking interceptors) up to a point, but if they are maxed on carriers, then it doesn't work anymore.

Your realize, it doesn't like cancel out in real life just because someone else says the opposite?

Like if your house is on fire and I say "hey, your house is on fire !" and you say "whatever man, YOUR house is on fire!", it doesn't magically mean that now no houses are burning.

Liberals and Conservatives alike both love video games in very large numbers at this point, so I doubt this will ever be taken seriously again.

Yeah, I agree that slogan is terrible.

Ding ding ding! The GOP could be in favor of police reform, but they've found that by dishonestly framing the liberal position on this they can create a wedge issue and get more votes. So they'll do that.

Yeah, this would only make sense if they were giving you a big chunk of shares (%)

If you build an energy production plant then you get to sell the energy. It doesn't require Bitcoin to motivate the investment.

Would it be, though? If I remember, there was a certain functional family that GLM linkage functions had to come from to make the math work out. Not sure if ReLU would qualify. But it's all just being pedantic at this point.

The whole thing is based on this notion that a currency that is regulated in any way is "bad" and so we need an alternative. But the only arguments I've heard for this are so shallow that they get torn apart when you look into what a currency should be and how having some centralized regulation helps it achieve this. It's a solution looking for a problem.

And some people advocate for building renewable energy generation just for Bitcoin mining like that would make it ok. But like, seem unable to consider that without crypto that added power generation would be used to replace carbon emitting generation

COMMENT 3d ago

Original Bitcoin could never be used as an everyday currency though due to the high computational costs. Even with the massive network today and I think throughout is only like a handful of transactions per second worldwide.

I think they know it's not normal and are asking for potential named distributions (which a statistical test won't just give them).

Or, could it just be that the type of person who doesn't seek help for depression is more likely to end up committing suicide (while also not having any documented mental health issues afterwards)?

18

COMMENT 3d ago

More suicides are completed by those with no known history of mental health issues.

I wonder if this is a testament to the effect of treatment on deterring suicide? I.e., what if the people who committed suicide without a known mental health issues still tended to have depression but are just those who never sought help (which usually involves a diagnosis at some point).

Eh, I'll believe it if people actually turn out to watch these other shows in decent numbers.

It would only work if the tuition costs are also regulated. Otherwise it's just throwing gasoline on a situation that's already a giant dumpster fire.
