Okay, so that's one then. i know a bunch of other people on twitter/tumblr who use it/its pronouns (i guess it's only natural that we'd gravitate towards each other) but the only person i've met irl has been an ex whom i initially met on twitter I've noticed a decent number of people on twitter wit...

Thanica Vari The AI spoke up. "I have no objections. You may proceed." There wasn't much for her to reflect on or add to. Hopefully, her Trojan Horse program would be returned after the mission succeeded, and she could examine its experiences to improve her own program. Meanwhile, it was ...

Please no, the lack of qualified people on this site to talk about mental illness is frightening. Bad advice as it is abounds. Not to mention potential liability to the site for it. In the USA there may be some protection in section 230, other nations, not so much. As much as I understand the desir...

Since nobody has brought this up, I will throw it in. It is still not there yet. What do you think of plasma converters? What, like direct energy converters ? Plasma arc technology. This is not quite the same as incinerators. They run a lot hotter. You mean plasma gasification. I have a few concern...

Regardless, simply because she's a bad apple, doesn't give justification for opening Pandora's Box and allowing misgendering. It's not misgendering, it's dehumanising. In this specific instance, its both. And neither is acceptable. That's also bad. I know, but imo it's justifiable. No, it isn't. Ag...

I don't necessarily see why you can't make that thread as long as you're clear that's the intention behind it. I've recommended to the Team that we allow this. Please be patient. Thanks, Farn.

I mean, I get your point. I even agree with it on some level. But as far as I can tell, the primary function of TDT, at least from Moderation's official POV, is debate and discussion, not support (it just so happens to do that in a secondary and unofficial capacity). In order for there to be suppor...

I wouldn't say that all that happens in the TDT is support. There is a lot of debate, often from transphobic people. We try our best to put out the fires, but unless there's actual rulebreaking going on, there's nothing we can do to get it to stop. There could be in a mental illness support thread ...

Ah, okay. A reactor with a positive void coefficient produces more energy the hotter it gets (all else being equal), and the more energy it produces the hotter it gets. This can rarely produce a runaway feed back loop, (it keeps getting hotter and hotter) or a melt down. However many reactors have ...

I rather like the idea of improved turbines. There are room temperature superconductors Last I checked (pretty recently), no, there fucking aren't. Certainly nothing at TRL 4 or higher. and better superconductor cables. If you can improve turbines across the board as a base source of power, you can...

I'd like to think it wouldn't happen here because we'd literally riot over delayed healthcare, but we can't even seem to get off our asses to demand public healthcare.

It's not. Nuclear is actually the safest. What happens if meltdowns occur? Use reactors that can't meltdown. Funny you should mention that. Wind, thanks to the very nature of convection, tends to bring warm air to colder regions and cold air to warmer regions. If you reduce wind, you keep the polar...

Saiwania, really now. A 2 year degree is not worthless, but how you managed the mental gymnastics to decide that it was the same as a four year bachelors shows an incredible lack of basic common sense. Most people buy used books if they can to save money. They also sell their new books back to the ...

I mean, most business and management degrees sound like a waste of time and money to me.

Most of it is applied common sense... for example, the sunk cos...

An MBA *is* a business degree. And as far as I'm concerned, its not immune to being as useless as any other business degree. It's the basic foundation for entering a top-notch company, I believe. And? That doesn't tell me anything other than "top-notch companies" want their new hires to k...
