Here’s an idea I think is wrong but feels right: when an object is lowered to a below-frozen temperature, the more additional time it is kept at that temperature, the more it will acclimate to being at that temperature – therefore requiring more energy to heat it up again.
People who reject superstition: what is a superstition you adhere to?
The thing is, we don’t really mean it.
I can’t tell if we really meant it back then.
There were people who did seem to really mean it, and we are no longer friends with them.
I had a great time at my friend’s wedding. So glad for my friend and his wife. Good times reminiscing with old pals. We demonstrate our affection by taking shots at each other.
I am home. The cats are happy to see me. One gnaws on my hand approvingly.
I love this garden my mom put on the side of the house.
The only other time I got in a fight like that, it was after school and I clearly did not win. Somehow I got a lot of credit with people in school for it, and my friend told me it’s because after I went down I got up and enthusiastically said “Hi!” to the guy who attacked me.
Today I attend a good friend’s wedding, and get to hang out with another good friend with whom I once got suspended from school for getting in a fistfight. Time to suit up!
When they give you what you asked for, you can’t really complain about it..
I made the mistake in a dream of asking “Who else here is a real person?”
What’s the most unusual food you have tried and liked?
Which is the greater honor?
Greatest GOAT of all time
I respect my stove, but I don’t know why it heats things up more quickly than the recipe says.
The 1902 film A Trip to the Moon feels like directly confronting my own mortality.
Did you know that when you multiply a recipe to feed many more people, you can’t simply multiply the amount of salt. That’s because the flavor of salt is strong and will permeate the entire dish; a multiplied amount of salt will wind up being way too strong.
I am zooming with my cats right now. They are 👍🏼
Me, who takes cans from the back so they always look most presentable.
One fireworks display was the best ever.
Not enough people are talking about chicken finger subs.
The drawbacks of a landline are numerous. Are there any benefits?
Gotta be a good story here.
I’m in Boston. I love Boston! I miss Boston! Such character.
Do you prefer when alphabetical order places numbers before letters or after them?
One thing my cats seemed to like was when I would purchase a large variety of food, order the meals (e.g. meal type 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc.) but, crucially, then slightly shuffle that order so they could not always predict what is coming next.
Maybe the bad people are right about crime.
Not a fan of having entered the “filling out police reports” stage of my life.
At the gas station register when I asked how much the little pack of advil costs, the teenager behind me sighed so loudly it recalibrated my entire sense of decorum.
I don’t want sympathy. I want to know how to strike back at them.
Someone stole a pricey package of mine from my building’s mailroom. My building management found the video of the person taking it; their tone suggested it was another current resident. They won’t show me the video or tell me who it was.
Have you ever stolen a package? Why?
Would love to know the story behind Google Workspace allowing the migration of emails with timestamps from before computers were invented.
It would clarify things for us science-lovers if our science community were happier to directly assess popular-but-stigmatized theories.
I live in California. Generally, DMT is illegal here. This truth-seeking experiment – whether or not healthy & productive – is disallowed.
A friend's girlfriend claimed she talks to aliens "all the time" whenever she does DMT.
Sure, it could be too many drugs. Bias. Tricking oneself.
But it's enough of a lead to potentially be worth sending a skeptic with a clipboard and a rock-solid protocol to try to find out.
I have never plagiarized. Why? Because I couldn't live with the guilt. Which makes plagiarism the perfect sin for me to condemn without conditions or boundaries.
There must be some people who get exactly what they want and it fully satisfies them.
"Love Song" by Sara Bareilles led to an impressive number of copycat songs.
Have you ever recognized a song that seemed to be a copycat of another popular song?
Is this plagiarism?
Not quite the same if properly cited at the time.
A challenge for me has been accepting seemingly malicious behavior while being denied any information I could use to understand it.
Do I subscribe to the religion of "should" or do I deny it?
When you work with world-class talent, the quality is undeniable.
I subscribe to the YouTube channel Story Recapped for the video titles, not the videos (which I don't watch). Whoever writes the titles over there has a knack for describing content in the most lascivious way possible.
Enjoyed: the trend of giving names to products that allude to concepts one does not bring up in polite company
