Upaya Hey MeyhamπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘‹
flag
Adite I like it when kids ask me seemingly simple questions.
flag
meyham39 Up good afternoon ✌️
flag
Adite I think the general answer is: 1. When they flap wings down, the apparent weight of the van would either be the same or greater than before. 2. When they flap up, there is no downwards force, so the van is lighter.
flag
Adite Now what about drones?
flag
cuddlyable3 Upaya is your bird equipped with a space suit to survive in a vacuum?
flag
meyham39 πŸ‘€
flag
Upaya Wait... I think I get that, but wouldn't the van weight less when the bird is in free fall going down?πŸ€”
flag
Hermeneut but then the bird would lose altitude if they keep the altitude in flight, they have to be supported by the air they are flying in
flag
Upaya yes cuddly, the van lol
flag
Hermeneut and generate downward force in that air - just to keep flying
flag
Adite Another nice problem - don't cheat.... If you were stuck in the middle of a huge frozen lake, how could use escape?
flag
cuddlyable3 Outside the van it makes no difference what holds up the bird inside the van.
flag
Adite The lake is completely frictionless.
flag
Upaya Hey Miss
flag
Hermeneut inhale in one direction, then turn and exhale to another direction lol
flag
Adite *how could you escape? - note use
flag
Adite Yes, that would work (slowly)!
flag
Adite There is a slightly better answer.
flag
Upaya Throwing stuff in the opposite direction?
flag
Adite Yep, that would give you more momentum.
flag
cuddlyable3 Assuming "stuck" doesn't imply adhesion.. Hermeneut how would you turn?
flag
Adite I suspect you could turn.
flag
Upaya spin your head
flag
cuddlyable3 Am I allowed to piss?
flag
Hermeneut I can turn only my head, I guess ... that should work enough
flag
Adite That is my favourite answer, cuddly.
flag
Upaya the inertia of your body should still allow your head to turn as it weighs less?
flag
Upaya Hello ArmπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘‹
flag
cuddlyable3 Male micturation is dirigible, female not so much.
flag
armaniarma greetings
flag
armaniarma how do you think
flag
armaniarma did we fail mother earth
flag
Upaya ... we could treat her better at least lol
flag
cuddlyable3 Male micturition is dirigible (spelling corrected)
flag
armaniarma as in what couse
flag
armaniarma whats the problem
flag
armaniarma what is the couse of the problem
flag
Upaya Infrastructure
flag
armaniarma they say its a man made world out there for a reason
flag
armaniarma ofcourse we are not talking about natures selection, but how we as beings perceived to evolve in culture
flag
armaniarma and still stai in a similar way of natural selection
flag
cuddlyable3 "There ain't no more, you've taken everything From my belief in Mother Earth Can you ignore my faith in everything ? 'Cause I know what faith is and what it's worth." - Steve Harley - Make Me Smile
flag
Upaya (got a call πŸ˜…)
flag
Hermeneut I kinda like the idea of "second replicator" emerging beside genes, the memes of however they might be called. The assumed basis of cultural evolution
flag
cuddlyable3 This is a man's World - Etta James Etta James - It's a Man's Man's World
flag
Hermeneut but cultural evolution seems a hazy term, not that well defined. Same goes to memes
flag
armaniarma yes it is
flag
Upaya I watched a good debate with Dawkins on Evolution where he discussed that (it was actually a forward thinking evolution conversation, he wasn't just bantering with fundamentalist lol)
flag
Hermeneut though memes are somewhat defined ... they are still confusing to me though
flag
cuddlyable3 Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.
flag
armaniarma just a nother corner for our lack of words to describe of what we think
flag
Upaya This Video Will Make You Angry << I'm not sure if he actually defines Meme's in this video, but even so, still a great description of what they are, and how they function.
flag
Hermeneut indeed, hence the idea of "second replicator"
flag
flag
Hermeneut Ideas that reproduce themselves
flag
cuddlyable3 1 minute of a crude 7-minute cartoon video made me angry already
flag
Upaya Your loss πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
flag
cuddlyable3 A field of study called memetics arose in the 1990s to explore the concepts and transmission of memes in terms of an evolutionary model. Memetics - Wikipedia
flag
Upaya https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1528077 <<< this is the peer reviewed article that AMAZING crude video was based on if it helps
flag
Upaya (brb )
flag
Hermeneut that is an interesting thought though, ideas that are locked in a battle against each other can be viewed as symbiotic
flag
drbrian_palevac spatial perceptions are arguably deeper than linguistic
flag
Hermeneut that was mentioned in the video, if I was confusing
flag
cuddlyable3 Thank you Upaya, 17 pages that don't treat the reader as illiterate.
flag
cuddlyable3 I think I'll go and read that. Bye bye.
flag

Upaya Back
flag
Upaya Yes, EXACTLY Herm πŸ‘πŸ‘

drbrian_palevac Up, "Thought Germs" is one of the healthiest videos possible, thank you!
