I try to contribute to things getting better, sometimes through polite rational skepticism.
Disagreeing with your comment ≠ supporting the opposite side, I support rationality.

That’s a much smoother way to become a criminal than by committing an actual crime, kinda convenient.

Richard P Feynman on “Why are we here?” (www.youtube.com)

I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers, and possible beliefs, and different degrees of uncertainty about different things, but I am not absolutely sure of anything. There are many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means...

In this case, it was probably the teacher not being knowledgeable enough to explain a more advance theory that goes beyond the simple model he was teaching. What’s sad is that the teacher didn’t take the opportunity to dig deeper with the student, it could have been very motivating for the student to feel like he found something that went beyond the normal curriculum.

You could try reading Feynman’s lectures, he was a very passionate teacher, and he used intuition a lot, so you don’t need to grind on equations to follow. en.wikipedia.org/…/The_Feynman_Lectures_on_Physic…

3.76€. In general food is much cheaper than in France, except for imported PDO (AOP) food and some common French fruits that are sold as luxury here. For example Comté is 5€30 for 100g, melon can be 30€ for one.

The french flag is a bit surprising given it’s not made in France

It’s because the origin is French, it’s like having an Italian flag on pasta.

it’s flattering since that means Japanese like french stuff

That’s the least you could say, French references are everywhere in Tokyo, food, fashion, building names; it is associated with fanciness.

European made batteries could be 60% less carbon intensive than Chinese, researchers urging Europe to support investments (www.transportenvironment.org)

Onshoring the EV supply chain to Europe would cut the emissions of producing a battery by 37% compared to a China-controlled supply chain, according to new analysis by Transport & Environment (T&E). This carbon saving rises to over 60% when renewable electricity is used. Producing Europe’s demand for battery cells and...

t’s smart to have everyone interdependent, to make conflicts less appealing,

Do you still believe that after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia? It seems the less appealing part only influenced the EU who refused to see the threat until the invasion actually started. But it looks like it didn’t affect Putin’s imperialist fantasies, it mostly funded his ambitions, and still does with the oil we keep buying from them because we’re unable to reduce our dependency. politico.eu/…/vladimir-putin-russia-banked-1-bill…

Promontory reminds me that as a French, when speaking English, I sometimes use literary French terms with an English accent as an elite facade for amusement because I sense that it probably exists in literary English (afaik literary words are more likely to be similar than common ones, dating from when they learned what cuisine is). It works better when nobody’s a native Anglophone in the chamber so people just think they don’t know this chic word when I’m just mistaken. Although, there is a risqué risk of false friend that may turn it into a ridicule faux-pas by ricochet.

Most women choose to wear hijab and are defending the right to do so.

In democracies (and absence of family pressure) maybe, but in most of the world, I doubt it.

Because I spoke with some of them, lived in different countries and my readings are not limited to information about my place of origin. What about you, do you come from a place that lets you know better about the world than mine, or your argument about having knowledge limited to your origin doesn’t apply to you?

1000+ Firefox for Android extensions now available – Mozilla Add-ons Community Blog (blog.mozilla.org)

Lemmygrad and Hexbear are the most obvious ones, sadly lemmy.ml is also part of them in my experience despite not being obvious about it (you have to check the admins and mods profile to see the link) and having some good content when it’s not about politics such as tech. There may also be some defederated by my home instance admins that I may not be aware of.

Uncomfortable, mayby, for having to read information you oppose?

dog pilling, personal attacks and finally threats of violence […] I am not on Lemmy to consume my mental health

Not all violence is physical.

I think many people need to grow a little thicker skin in that regard.

Are you blaming me for not having a tick enough skin instead of blaming the behavior of attackers? Please reconsider that thought.
