A paradox doesn’t have to be unsolvable, just sufficiently complex so that an average person is unable to process the logic on their own.
If you had not pointed this out, I would have :-)
You know you’re getting old when you start to define evolution as “destruction.”
That silhouette looks more like Itchy from the Itchy and Scratchy Show, which did experience some legal trouble in the case of Lampwick v. Meyers.
It’s good to make a differential.
I have taught secondary Math at every level for 17 years. Every Fall I freely admit to my students how essentially every formula I’m about to teach them will be useless in everyday life. Then I point out that a parking lot full of shiny, waxed cars was “essentially useless” when Daniel Larusso won the All-Valley tournament. If you’re going into a STEAM career, the concepts might come in handy, but even then they play a minor role. However, all that calculation is the most efficient means by which one becomes an expert in critical thinking, quantitative evaluation, comparative analysis, identification of valid/invalid arguments, etc. My classes are soon at ease and more willing to run with it, and we have a pretty good time working through what too often gets a bad rap as the most boring subject in school.
Well said. Participation IS effort. Get them excited to try and they’ll be less afraid of failure. Sure there are those who will learn the wrong lesson and come away with a sense of entitlement, but that was happening to straight white middle-class men long before the abundance of trophies came around for them to complain about.
Management work – especially middle management – is going obsolete.
Even if you’re not ready for a full electric, there are plenty of hybrids or plug-in hybrids available and they rarely idle. Even in non-hybrids, a lot of automakers are implementing idle-stop systems (a.k.a. “mild hybrids”), in which the engine stops when it’s not accelerating and then restarts seamlessly. The cylinder configurations that allow this to happen are a thing of beauty.
Here’s a hint – the losers will complain that the winners succeeded by unfair preparation and unusual good fortune.
