Carl Sagan denied being an atheist. So what did he believe? [Part 1] - WaPo http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...
This is pretty close to my own thinking. I can't really explain why, but claiming 100% certainty when you have 99.95% +/- 0.05% certainty just seems problematic to me. - Victor Ganata
From a broader perspective, this seems to be discussing the fine line between denialism and scientific skepticism: "If you’re only skeptical, then no new ideas make it through to you. You never learn anything. You become a crotchety misanthrope convinced that nonsense is ruling the world. (There is, of course, much data to support you.)" - Victor Ganata
"Since major discoveries at the borderlines of science are rare, experiences will tend to confirm your grumpiness. But every now and then a new idea turns out to be on the mark, valid and wonderful. If you’re too resolutely and uncompromisingly skeptical, you’re going to miss (or resent) the transforming discoveries in science, and either way, you will be obstructing understanding and progress. Mere skepticism is not enough." - Victor Ganata
In science, you can't just say "No, that's not true" and expect people to take you seriously. You also have to explain what's actually happening. - Victor Ganata

NYC Approves Apartment Building With Separate Entrance for Poor People
"It would be difficult to come with a more on-the-nose metaphor for New York City's income inequality problem than the new high-rise apartment building coming to 40 Riverside Boulevard, which will feature separate doors for regular, wealthy humans and whatever you call the scum that rents affordable housing." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

If I end up with crappy wine, I figure I can always turn it into brandy. In fact part of me is hoping it fails, because I'd really like to build one of these :) http://homedistiller.org/forum... - Ken Morley
Some friends have said they're having an open house over Christmas this year but that everyone's got to bring something homemade. This is partly because they've bought a cider press and want to make some. We've just started some strawberry wine to take around. It's the first time we've done this in maybe five years and we've decided to play around with the sugars, mixing dark and light muscovado with some golden sugar. We think it should be approaching a sweet sherry by Christmas. - Mark H
I can see how a hobbyist can really get into wine making, as there seems to be an infinite number of parameters you can adjust to produce the perfect vintage. :) But the feedback loop can be a little on the long side. Most of my plum wine sources are recommending 6 months - 2 years before consuming! I may need to sample sooner. :) - Ken Morley
In the past we've always used the "can you see your hand through the other side of the demijohn?" method to tell when the wine was done. But because we're impatient it's not been unheard of for us to have a "glass of cloudy" every now and then too. - Mark H
That's a good method! I've put on enough for 50 bottles, so if I end up sampling frequently I should still have a few left to age for a year or two. :) - Ken Morley

The Good Country Index - http://www.goodcountry.org/
The Good Country Index
"The idea of the Good Country Index is pretty simple: to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. Using a wide range of data from the U.N. and other international organisations, we’ve given each country a balance-sheet to show at a glance whether it’s a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet, or something in between." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
" Q: Some of these indicators seem a bit arbitrary. How did you choose them? A: Although more and more reliable data about countries is collected every year, it’s still patchy. So we have to be pretty clever about using the good, robust, available data as ‘tokens’ for the qualities we’re looking for. Most of the indicators we use are very direct measurements of world-friendly or... more... - Ken Morley
" Q: Surely some of the behaviours you include have more impact than others. How do you allow for this? A: At the moment we don’t, because it’s largely a matter of opinion whether, for example, emitting CO2 does more harm to humanity than invading another country. For this reason, all the data is weighted equally when calculating the final results. Something we’re considering for later... more... - Ken Morley
" Q: This is surely a very incomplete picture of the world. You can’t possibly reduce a country’s entire contribution to humanity and the planet down to 35 indicators. A: We know, we know. But it’s a start, and we welcome constructive contributions. It will probably never be possible to give a complete answer on any of these issues, but it’s surely better to get the debate going than to keep silent. " - Ken Morley

Canadian Netflix Hell - http://gizmodo.com/my-life...
Canadian Netflix Hell
"I'm American, but I've spent a big chunk of the last eight years in Canada, first for affordable education, and then for love. Canada is a gentle foster motherland, suckling me on her polite, maple-flavored bosom. But Netflix here is some bootleg FUBAR bullshit." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"My long (non)-national nightmare with Canadian Netflix began two years ago, when I left the U.S. for Toronto. I'd lived in Montreal years before, but Netflix streaming wasn't a thing then. [Sidebar: I can't even imagine how shitty a Netflix: Quebec would be if the province ever fulfilled its separatist goals. It would literally just be the movie C.R.A.Z.Y. and old clips of Bon Cop Bad... more... - Ken Morley
"I tried to stave off my homesickness by introducing my Canadian friends to the liberal '90s screwball utopia of The West Wing, but apparently Canada hasn't forgiven Sorkin for Studio 60. Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and Louie all vanished north of the 49th parallel. Altogether, Canada has fewer than half the available titles that the U.S. version of Netflix offers, which is probably... more... - Ken Morley
"Most Canadians I know get sweaty palms about jaywalking but don't think twice about rerouting their Netflix to the south, because if there's anything worse than not having something you want, it's not having something you want and watching your neighbor enjoy it" - Ken Morley
"fewer than half" - where's the data supporting this percentage statement? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
"My friends were referring to the 10,000 titles that American Netflix users enjoy, in contrast to the options available on Netflix Canada, which currently amounts to about 4,000." - http://www.torontosun.com/2014... - Andrew C (✔)
I used to bemoan the (relative) lack of choice on Netflix. Then, I stopped watching it so much. Now, it's just right :) - Brent Schaus

Netflix. The stuff people in the sticks can only dream of. (Friends living in these things called cities are raving about it.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
It's good for old series, but the movies pretty much suck. Also, the interfaces on various boxes (e.g. Apple TV, TiVo, Roku) also kind of suck. Come to think of it, I should really cancel my subscription. The TV I spend the most time watching is SF Giants games. - Professor A.I.

Scientists are beginning to figure out why Conservatives are... conservative. Basically they're scared by everything. - http://www.motherjones.com/politic...
Scientists are beginning to figure out why Conservatives are... conservative. Basically they're scared by everything.
"There is by now evidence from a variety of laboratories around the world using a variety of methodological techniques leading to the virtually inescapable conclusion that the cognitive-motivational styles of leftists and rightists are quite different. This research consistently finds that conservatism is positively associated with heightened epistemic concerns for order, structure, closure, certainty, consistency, simplicity, and familiarity, as well as existential concerns such as perceptions of danger, sensitivity to threat, and death anxiety." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"One possibility," note the authors, "is that a strong negativity bias was extremely useful in the Pleistocene," when it would have been super-helpful in preventing you from getting killed. - Ken Morley

Ever notice how toilet seats get flipped from up to down and down to up between visits, even though you know nobody has been in the bathroom? After much research I've found that toiled seats are entangled. So when one seat even half way across the universe is flipped the entangled seat follows. Spooky. I plan to make a supercomputer from these.
I would posit that either a) You don't know that nobody has been in the bathroom or b) Your memories of visits to the bathroom are getting out of sync. Because otherwise, screw the supercomputer, you could make a teleporter out of these, and I don't think we're far enough into the future for that yet. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
Does SETI know about this? - Ken Morley
As usual ken they are keeping a lid on it. - Todd Hoff
Sloppy, the way to teleport would be through the toilet and that shit ain't gonna fly. - Todd Hoff

Mayonnaise jar..... of mercury.
On the news, a family had to have a hazmat team clean out their house after a "forgotten mayonnaise jar of mercury" contaminated the house. GUYS, CHECK YOUR MAYO JARS FOR MERCURY! - Heather
When I was in elementary school I knew a kid who collected the stuff. His dad had some sort of job where he'd come across it, and he'd save it for him. He had jars of the stuff! He was always a little wacky, I think now it was probably mercury poisoning: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Ken Morley
I remember a couple of times at school when some kid would bring in a little bit of mercury from a broken thermometer. We'd all play with it, rolling it around on our hands. Back then, a broken thermometer was no big deal. - Betsy

Faces of Vaccine Denialism
Faces of Vaccine Denialism.jpg
denialism ne demek - moreya
İnkarcılığa rahatsız gerçeği ile ilgili önlemek için bir yol olarak gerçeği inkar seçmektir. - Eivind
I'm not an anti-vaxer, but my moderate distrust of flu shots is influenced by the fact that of the couple of people I know who regularly get them, one developed Guillain-Barré syndrome within a week of receiving the shot. The CDC says the correlation is negligible, but my personal study indicates it's closer to 50%. :) - Ken Morley
I think you just highlighted an important problem. Lots of "personal studies," often based on news items and dodgy sites, end up with numbers like that, or worse :) - Eivind from Android
thanks :))) - moreya
Or maybe the CDC is lying to us. ;) - Ken Morley
Sure. More like Center for Mind Control, amirite? :) - Eivind from Android
You can definitely get Guillain-Barré from the flu shot, but it's like 1:1 million (EDIT: sorry, 1:100,000) , so I haven't seen any cases yet. - Victor Ganata
It took him about a year to mostly get back to normal. He never did regain his fine motor control completely. - Ken Morley
correlation does not imply causation. the flu shot isn't that likely to have caused it, no matter how awful his suffering. - Big Joe Silence
There was a statistically-significant increase in risk though, but that was the 1976 swine flu vaccine. http://www.cdc.gov/flu... We don't really know the mechanism. But, yeah, Guillain-Barré can certainly happen even if you aren't vaccinated. - Victor Ganata
I mean, you can get Guillain-Barré after getting the flu—it's probably the exact same mechanism—but who really knows? - Victor Ganata
It's possible my sample size was not large enough to be statistically significant (n=2). Your results may vary. :) - Ken Morley
I've gotten a flu shot twice, so I'm 100% sure it has no side effects. :) I also got the HPV vaccine with no side effects, so it's also 100% safe. - Heather
I'm pretty sure my n is somewhere between 1,000 to 10,000 by now, but it's definitely not powered enough to see Guillain-Barré. I'm just taking the CDC at its word. - Victor Ganata
at the risk of being classified as your friendly vaccine denialist... I suggest you read CDC http://www.cdc.gov/vaccine... and then search for official Finnish news on Pandemrix effect, ie. gooogle for _pandemrix finland site:yle.fi_ - непростые коротышки
first GSK simply denied effect goes above (their) statistic expectations, then they denied scale of effect, then they denied that most vulnerable between 4 and 19... then they denied those who "reported too late"... and then they used Finnish state as last-line "insurance" for damage over their 30 million EUR fund (in 2011 official number had been 92, but official confirmation of link had been in 2012 only). - непростые коротышки

10 Tricks to Appear Smart During Meetings — Comedy Corner — Medium
"1. Draw a Venn diagram Getting up and drawing a Venn diagram is a great way to appear smart. It doesn’t matter if your Venn diagram is wildly inaccurate, in fact, the more inaccurate the better. Even before you’ve put that marker down, your colleagues will begin fighting about what exactly the labels should be and how big the circles should be, etc. At this point, you can slink back to your chair and go back to playing Candy Crush on your phone." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"2. Translate percentage metrics into fractions If someone says “About 25% of all users click on this button,” quickly chime in with, “So about 1 in 4,” and make a note of it. Everyone will nod their head in agreement, secretly impressed and envious of your quick math skills." - Andrew C (✔)
