Usually I am very aware that the concept of looking like breaks down when we talk about photons. If I need to visualise it, however, I usually just think about white little balls travelling through space or some sort of diffuse wave like space-time region.
What's your favorite controller? Me: the original gamecube controller
Should i give you 3 million € or double it and give it to someone else?
Give it to me. I will more than double it and have a life long donation commitment. It’s probably better for everyone.
I listened to a podcast which was about Britain during the reign of King Charles I and how terrible a king he was. What I don't quite get is why some people continue to commemorate him each year. In your country, is there any historical figure who is still commemorated
despite doing terrible things in their time?
In Germany we are rather cautious to not praise our past political leaders.
Of course it is. And any mathematician who tells you otherwise ist just a bad metaphysician
I’ve got the calves of a Greek god.
Should sex education in schools also include good sex and foreplay techniques?
I learned in sex ed where people commonly have erogenous zones. Gives you a rough map of where the fun is. I think any more details would require practical instruction and I would have some objections there.
Ethical assessment depends on the reasons you have for doing something. Comparing the reasons: The Kreml cut off the nation from state-independent media to deceive the people about what happens and spread misinformation that is uncontested. The west cut out Russian media channels because they are trying to spread misinformation and stir up chaos and confusion.
What the Kreml does is a blatant act of manipulation and lying to people. That’s morally highly objectionable. What the west does is trying to stop the spread of misinformation, which is generally a morally good thing.
So, yeah it’s morally correct under any standard you could apply unless it’s a very strange and fringe standard that nobody in their right minds agrees to.
What specific task do you especially dislike doing at work?
I’m responsible for the web presence of our department. We made a big transition two years ago, and that was somewhat fun. But now people just routinely want me to change stuff… current events, typos, staff lists… and I hate it.
You can achieve anything you want, if you don’t want anything.
What will happen when Putin realizes that his plan doesn't work?
I think the recent news have answered this question
Welfare Check! How are you feeling? Are things going as well as they can for you at the moment?
No. They haven’t for a while now
I’m fucking flabbergasted
The best way, if feasible, is to turn Russia against itself. Make it unstable, forcing change from within.
Otherwise, prepare NATO borders, and isolate Russia economically - wary of the risk that we might provoke a new axis of evil of Russia, China, Iran, etc
