Heh, we get so caught up in one path we forget others sometimes don’t we? That’s a great idea. Thanks!
It seems to not be sending me the reset e-mail. I requested twice last night, separated by five minutes. I’ll PM Hab, just in case the system forgot my e-mail address, but still a problem if so that there is no message to that effect.
ETA: Multiple messages sent with no reply. Shall I assume this project is no longer going forward?
Metaphor makes sense; I’dn’t thought of that. Thanks!
Thanks! That accords with what people have said and with reason better than the former reigning champion.
Sorry for delay; was at a wedding. When I start typing comments on my phone the submit button disappears, so I can only comment from my computer, and I’m trying to avoid thumbs until they fix the asymmetry.
How do folks use the term “bullying” these days? (links to dictionaries will be ignored)
When I was a kid it was simple: child on child violence. Then people started using it for just word stuff without real physical harm, then for adults, then with an implication of warranting the enforcement of authorities to stop...
I get the impression it’s currently either used as “being mean in any sense one could perceive” broadly or “being mean in a way we should get people with some form of authority to force people to stop” but I don’t know which, or which is closer, and the ambiguity is enough to change real meaning.
It appears so. I sometimes sleep past sunrise since retiring, but I almost never did when I worked at the bank.
All in all, mission success, priors updated :)
To me, yes. I don’t personally know many adults who stay up into the double digits more than occasionally, but it was brought to my attention that does not exactly mirror the global situation.
Meant college, if one went to college, and whatever schooling one had if not.
College kids staying up into the double digits every night for parties and/or homework is not really what I was wondering about.
Of people who are more than two years out of school: What was your average bed time last week?
I’ve heard more grown adults stay up extremely late than I’d assumed. First time trying to do a poll; there may well be errors.
If only we could concurrently disable comments that detract from the reader ;) Any estimate how long until this is fixed?
I was not aware of the pod making process. I thought there was opportunity for something to be lost in the process, like how pepper is stronger freshly ground &c.
I’d still read a study, but that updates my baseline probabilities. Thanks!
I don’t know why there would or wouldn’t be; but if there is I’d brew more and pod less.
My intuition, which I do not find reliable for closing issues but sometimes opens good ones, is that brewed might be better. If there’s a study I could close the issue one way or the other. Do you have evidence one way or the other?
Has anybody seen a good study on the health benefits of brewed versus pod based coffee?
My GP and I agree intuitively it seems brewed should be better but neither of us knew of an actual study (though to be fair my Google fu is very weak and she hadn’t researched and came up wanting, just didn’t have one on the top of her head)
Just one point of data: I kept a spreadsheet when I lost 59 pounds in 96 days. I had values for my personal base burn as a function of current weight and per task (usually a rower and hiking), and a daily deficit of 2000 calories correlated fairly well with a daily loss of .55 pounds (in round numbers; I don’t want to sound like the proverbial economist with a sense of humor. I also went over some and under some, used nutritional labels and activity estimates that rounded to the nearest 10, &c.)
I was not scientifically rigorous so grain of salt, but over three months or so, I anecdotally found that 3500 calories of deficit correlated very well with a pound of loss. After that I stayed pretty constant while I was paying attention, 1-2 years. Bit North of there now, but I don’t do much counting anymore.
Out of baked beans?
Yeah, that’s a good tool if you have it. Of course, I would still have to convince the spokesman. Though I’m not trying to sell that the aliens and gods made the moon out of green cheese so it’s not too hard there.
That’s a good point; sorry for the ambiguity.
I believe my point to be correct and want myself and my interlocutor to agree on the correct answer. Therefore I want both: If we both reach a truth that is not my prior belief, that’s a win, and if I get my interlocutor to agree with a true point that’s a win. If I’m right and fail to get agreement that is a loss, and if I am wrong and get agreement, that is a greater loss.
So basically: I’m greedy. Answers to both questions please :)
This is exactly the kind of thing I meant. Thank you for the reply!
