Deuterated water requires more energy for phase changes to occur.

The result they obtain could simply be a result of losing regular H2O to space at a slightly higher rate for billions of years.

Keep in mind that "critical perspectives" is possibly a cryptoreference to Critical Theory, not an endorsement that these perspectives are relevant or useful in any way.

The problem is not working too many hours. The problem is working too many days.

I do not like the 8hr/day 40-hr 5:2 work week. I prefer a 12hr/day 48-hr 4:4 work week. Even though I am technically working more hours, I have have 50% of my days off and can enjoy the "time to live sustainably, to care for each other, and simply to enjoy life."

What my schedule does not do, however, is allow slashes in full-time payroll to be redirected into executive bonuses and shareholder dividends.

Would Kant have asked these questions if he knew of theoretic physics in which time can carry a positive or negative without affecting the answer or in which time had been removed from the equations entirely?

That is, do these question even apply to reality or are they merely borne of incorrect assumptions?

It would be interesting if you could ignore/mute based on user AND tag.

Thus if you had followed User because you noticed they posted a bunch of really great stuff to #foo and then found out they posted a lot of really not great stuff to #bar, you could ignore User&#bar. Or whitelist User&#foo if that's all you wanted to see from them.

Presumably tags also work on an OR basis, so if you're subscribed to #foo you would see a post tagged #bar AND #foo, even though you never, never, wanted to see anything tagged #bar. Which may be non-ideal for some use cases (e.g. #nsfw).

The sharing model seems ripe for abuse as a content ranking method. The hashtag subskis seems like they'd be polluted with whatever the eventual powerusers reshare with each other.

So in other words... powerusers will rule the content algorithm once they've put in the effort to earn the badges?
