Can this end flat-Earth theory once and for all?
It’s crazy to me that “flat-earthers” is even a thing…but it’s fun to see these well-known scientists lay a logical smackdown.
We all know that air temperature isn’t the whole story. In the winter, heading out without considering the wind is a recipe for pain; in the summer, it’s the humidity that gets you. For a long time, I didn’t appreciate how much of a difference direct sunlight also makes.
I’ve been running outside just to be in the sun…good to know I could probably be running faster. 😂
– Neuroscientists don’t know the degree to which adult human brains generate new neurons.
– A new study found that adult-born neurons in lab rats continued to grow and mature long after infant-born ones stopped.
– Understanding the process of neuron birth and death can help scientists understand the causes of neurological disorders.
My theory is that once a new kind of stimulus is tasted it becomes a permanent feature of how downturns are handled.
People might give policymakers a pass if there’s a problem with no known solution. But if there’s a known solution and policymakers choose not to use it, they look like the problem. And they know it.
Hours after dropping a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima, Harry Truman told the world: “Having found the bomb we have used it.”
Historian David McCullough wrote:
Truman would have been impeached if it were found out later that he had sent any American soldiers to their deaths knowing he had a weapon that could have ended the war sooner.
That was it.
Maybe just knowing the safety net is there fundamentally changes the way the economy works. No one’s used a nuclear bomb on an enemy since 1945, but knowing they exist changed geopolitics ever since.
This article surprised me because it brings up a perspective I had never thought of. The only problem here though…is that with the Atomic bomb we could instantly see the horrendous consequences of using it.
With a couple trillion dollar stimulus package the negative consequences are not completely known and won’t come for many years…making people a bit blind to them.
