how does the zeitgeist choose who gets famous

i mean i just watched that music video and god, how does it choose

i do exactly this and am never hungry, so i don't know if it counts as "fasting"

beware second-option bias. guzey's article is indeed rigorous, as usual, and walker's book seems pretty wishy-washy in places, although i only read reviews. but... sleep is extremely good for you. as the best rebuttal on r/ssc points out, the overall message of the book is correct and shouldn't be overly compromised by lower-level criticisms, however valid

flagamuffin  ·  25 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: "Why We Sleep" Is Riddled with Scientific and Factual Errors

as far as it being a gotcha, it's more just orthogonal to the question of whether sleep is good for you. an electric shock may get your heart moving again in an emergency, but i would not characterize it as good for you.

indeed walker's language is imprecise

the number of depressed adults is one thing, the number successfully using sleep deprivation therapy is another

googling "wake therapy" yields a lot of pop articles with the classic numerous studies say, but the studies all -- including the one guzey links in his response -- point out that the effect reverses after a while/a night's sleep. so i mean, if you get depressed once a month, then maybe pulling an all-nighter is fine and this is a godsend. but for chronic depression, which is what i assume "major depression" is... if this is the therapy you choose, say goodbye to your job.

entertainingly, the relevant pdf from guzey's essay is hosted by gwern and has "illegal to host publicly" stamps all over it

yeah perhaps i'm guilty of only bringing up the single part i disagreed with, didn't have much to say about the rest

flagamuffin  ·  25 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: "Why We Sleep" Is Riddled with Scientific and Factual Errors

    No, a good night’s sleep is not always beneficial: sleep deprivation therapy in depression

i'd almost go as far as to call this dumb, likeable though guzey is. isolated demand for rigor, maybe

the rest of it was appreciated

alternatively, did you consider automatically deleting any post which contains a tweet

interesting. is the visa thing a scam/tourism kickback? google is inconclusive.

did you get vaccines?

i am also missing the connection between the distribution of notes (?) and the fractal pattern. isn't it constant?
