There's nothing wrong with peace, wealth and education, but we don't need to force Christianity or all of western culture on anyone.
- We need to obliterate the sense of identity in the middle east, fill it with Christian missionaries, propaganda of the American dream, and build so many factories and so much infrastructure that ISIS couldn't hope to destroy it. We need to replace their way of life with our own
This really isn't the right reaction – fear of this happening is exactly why people join terrorist groups.
I fed it a quite technical report on simulating model rocket aerodynamics (13000 words), which I wrote for school. Probably not quite the best text to use, but the results are still fun:
- You are inner-directed, skeptical and strict.
You are imaginative: you have a wild imagination. You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. And you are independent: you have a strong desire to have time to yourself.
You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of prestige.
You are relatively unconcerned with both taking pleasure in life and helping others. You prefer activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment. And you think people can handle their own business without interference.
Have you read the Feynman Lectures on Physics? They roughly cover a three year university course, but are quite readable and are available for free online here. (I hear that the last one does quantum mechanics in a different way from how it's done now, so it might not be as good a bet as the first two.)
- autism isn't considered a mental illness
Adding to this, synesthesia is definitely not a mental illness. It would depend on exactly what sort it is, but as far as I am aware it is only very rarely even an inconvenience – Wikipedia describes it as a "neurological phenomenon", which seems about right.
There are proper EU standards for free-range; also the standard for organic chicken and eggs are even higher.
Can't you just buy free-range chicken and eggs? Free range chicken is easy to find in the UK.
From actually looking at the comment section, almost all the comments seem to be critical, and about equal refer to him as male or female, with no particularly obvious difference (most comments don't refer to his gender at all). I wouldn't say there is any particular evidence that the criticism is related to perceptions of his gender.
Good point – I was imagining something with directed beams, but looking it up the idea does seem to be just to spread light everywhere. I'm guessing anything commercial will either use light so dim you don't notice it, or either infrared or ultraviolet, though – I suppose if it was just integrated into light bulbs that would work, as long as you want the light on (although it might still be cheaper to use a red laser with green and blue LEDs to make the overall lighting white).
