Since atmospheric water vapor accounts for nearly all of the greenhouse effect on Earth, that means the CO2 cannot possibly be an important or meaningful greenhouse gas

I don't trust the person who made this graph. Remember kiddos to verify through information through alternative/multiple sources especially is you agree with it. Also consider this meme/propaganda is somewhat compensating for that in the fact that the information on the opinions may be true but there may exist scientists with the opinion global warming is real.

Science is the best we've got, and it will likely be the best we'll have. It also, unfortunately, only can tell you what problems have gotten attention and funding, not all of the answers you desire. Every scientific paper will spawn 10 more questions than it can answer, in an infinite recursion.

For me, it's a domain in which you accept you are *not* entitled to your opinion. That is, in which you learn to adopt opinions according to information, are prepared to test them, and are prepared to change them. This approach generally means that you generally end up with better opinions.

>Switch to a 90% meat and fat diet

>Literally every physical or mental problem I have dissappears within a week
>Lose 10 pounds a month every month of fat
So, at this point, it's beyond any reasonable doubt that the best possible diet for anyone is obviously a high meat diet. Now, the question becomes WHY is anyone still holding a different position? It's recently been proven that the carnivore diet can literally cure bipolar.

I think Peat was right in that the ideal diet is going to maximize metabolic efficiency (and all diet protocols are just rough heuristics grasping for this ideal) , but he, and some of his followers underestimate how genetic idiosyncrasies influence this. They can be weirdly opposed to any genetic explanations for anything.

Can someone explain proposition A1.6 here? Apparently it's used to define arithmetic between real numbers as infinite decimals.

Point is to give a definition of the reals and their arithmetic. Here the approach is to define them as decimals (which is painful as can be seen, hence why sane people define them as equivalent classes of Cauchy sequences or Dedekind cuts).

How about:

The set of ([x_1]_l, ..., [x_n]_l) for l<=-k are k-close, i.e. |[x_i]_l - [x_i]_-k| <= 10^-k so they are a compact subset C (closed and bounded) of D^n.

Assume f is unbounded. Then for any integer N, no matter how large, there exists a point X_N (being an element of C) such that |f(X_N)| > N. By the theorem of the existence of a convergent subsequence in a compact subset, the sequence N->X_N must contain a convergent subsequence j->X_N(j) which converges to some point b (being an element of C). Since f is D-continuous at b, for any k, there exists l such that when |x_i - b_i| <= 10^-l, then |f(X) - f(b)| <= 10^-k; that is, |f(X)| <= |f(b)| + 10^-k.

Since j->X_N(j) converges to b, we have |X_N(j) - b| <= 10^-l for j sufficiently large. But as soon as N(j) > |f(b)| + 10^-k, we have |f(X_N(j))| > N(j) => |f(b)| + 10^-k. A contradiction. Therefore the set of values of f is bounded, which means f has a supremum.

>If there is an aether that is a perfect fluid, then light is a wave propagating in it, genius.
Aether was never regarded as a fluid, but rather a solid. This is because light was modelled as transverse waves, to allow for polarisation, not longitudinal acoustic-type waves.
>>
>>16132415
>Aether was never regarded as a fluid,
Also wrong, but the transverse waves did make some think it had solid-like properties. Euler believed the aether to be a fluid strongly enough that he invented his fluid equations just to describe its internal motion.
The "vortex sponge" model allowed for such elastic solid-like properties to emerge in such a perfect fluid: you don't see them arise in day-to-day fluids because they are imperfect, so vortices quickly dissipate.
The vortex sponge model obeys Maxwell's equations almost by definition: that's how he mechanically derived his laws, with the vortices corresponding to Faraday's tubes of force.

People take a couple mishaps between the 19-20th century (Kelvin's vortex knots theory of atoms missing the mark, Lorentz not quite knowing what to do with Lorentz contraction), and then project them centuries backwards, pretending that a very fruitful model wasn't so.

I was dating a girl with a confirmed IQ of 135, it made me extremely envious. But it feels like she'd get so much further if she wasn't so naive and virtuous (by today's standards if you will). But we are both young so maybe she'll become more cut throat, especially since she is in an academic/professional field where cut throat people are probably the most ubiquitous (other than high finance).

Trump: "huh? Well, uh, first of all! I think we need somebody absolutely that we can trust, who is totally responsible; who really knows what he or she is doing. That is so powerful and so important. And one of the things that I'm frankly most proud of is that in 2003, 2004, I was totally against going into Iraq because you're going to destabilize the Middle East. I called it! I called it very strongly! And it was very important! But we have to be extremely vigilant and extremely careful when it comes to nuclear... Nuclear changes the whole ball game! Frankly, I would have said get out of Syria; get out -- if we didn't have the power of weaponry today. The power is so massive that we can't just leave areas that 50 years ago or 75 years ago we wouldn't care. It was hand-to-hand combat. The biggest problem this world has today is not President Obama with global warming, which is inconceivable, this is what he's saying! The biggest problem we have is nuclear -- nuclear proliferation and having some maniac, having some madman go out and get a nuclear weapon! That's in my opinion, that is the single biggest problem that our country faces right now. I think -- I think, for me, nuclear is just the power, the devastation is very important to me!"
