  • Even if you added "for it's meat" at the end there, I have killed and eaten fish.

    But the way you said it, who hasn't swatted a fly or mosquito? Not to mention the skin mites and fruit flies you consume daily.

  • I actually bought the DVDs the other day.

    Well, 2. While it seems like all 26 episodes were dubbed in German and aired in late 2004, only 2 DVDs with 6 episodes each are available. I can also find a French version with a number 3 printed on it, which seems to be episode 13-18, but only French and English Audio on that one. England instead got all episodes on 2 DVDs in 1 double case, which is somehow cheaper to buy than all other versions.

    At least I can now confirm that Peter Lustig not just that dubbed the Inventor; not just that he presented the show and sung the intro song (I could have checked Wikipedia for that), but also that he claims in his introduction that the show takes place on a little island somewhere in the pacific. I bet that's unique to our version.

  • What life hack is so simple yet so effective, you're shocked more people don't know about it?
  • If you want to open a padlock and don't have the key, you can almost certainly break it open with 2 big wrenches.

    I only had 1 opportunity to try that yet, when removing a 20 year old lock some stupid kid left on my stuff and then forgot where I put the key, but man did it feel empowering.

    You can practice this trick at any romantic bridge. Do you really think whoever etched their initials on the lock is still together and would notice? Please

  • I remember being kinda excited for the tv-series, since Peter Lustig would dub the inventor in the German version (I am sure that was part of the advertisements). Peter was already famous for his roles in educational science programs for children, so having those shows in animated form with cute mammoths couldn't possibly fail.

    I think I only ever watched the episode on water pressure. Usual problem of it only being on Tv while I was at school.

    ...well would you look at that, not only did I watch at least 2 episodes, but I also learn that the episodes about gravity and blimps is called "the far side".

  • What universally beloved videogame you just can't enjoy?
  • I know that, what made you think I forgot?

    It's just not fun to me, yet online people describe Mario 3 as "the best 2d Mario" and "one I could always come back to". This has nothing to do with the NES' limitations, it's a difference in taste.

  • How do we disincentize car ownership?
  • When a drivers license is taken or suspended, especially for speeding in cities, give an easy option to directly... lease(?)1 an e-bike. And then suspend licenses for a lot more of the dangerous behaviors we currently just accept.

    A relative got her license suspended for a month for speeding, and then simply did not go anywhere. Having an exciting new mode of transport might have just been what she needed, the supermarket is just 2km away.

    1: The state can hammer out the details, obviously we don't want to gift them it or it becomes a reward for speeding, and selling them it means they could just resell it afterwards when the goal is that they keep and use it. Maybe like a 5 year ban on reselling it, only one per household. Also, probably keep the model generic and discreet so no shame is cast when just trying to buy groceries.

  • What universally beloved videogame you just can't enjoy?
  • My first Mario Game was Super Mario World, as such I don't understand why Mario 1 and 3 are so beloved. Groundbreaking they might be, fun they are not.

    Any time I got the Mario All Stars Cartridge out and said to myself "I am completing Mario 3 today", after a while my mind went "or I could actually enjoy a round of Mario World" and did that instead.

  • "Suffering builds character". anarcho-primitivists, probably
  • To be fair, I don't know exactly what is meant.

    But my mind went to meat consumption, which is higher in the developed world, is considered indicative of a high standard of living, and, in my opinion, is best addressed not by lab-grown meat (or other technological solutions), but by reduced consumption (the reduced living standard).

  • Penguins ❤️
  • I never said that. What I meant is that a behaviour, which benefits a species as a whole but reduces one individual's fitness, is not evolutionary competitive. It's evolutionary game theory, like the prisoners dilemma from normal game theory.

    And to determine if some behaviour is such a dilemma, you have to consider costs and benefits of it, which is not at all clear in natural situations. That's why I said it needs to be studied.

    But I must concede, I sort of assumed what exactly you called an evolutionary advantage. Common homosexuality in penguins or not discriminating against homosexual individuals in penguins have very different analysis here.

  • Penguins ❤️
  • I'd be cautious with saying evolutionary advantage here.

    I don't believe the "Gay Uncle hypothesis" any more than the somewhat debunked "Grandmother Hypothesis", which aimed to explain menopause with biological altruism. Just because we could think of a way in that it might be advantageous for a species doesn't mean it's advantageous for an individuals fitness.

    Of course, it can be still an advantage, but we'd only know with more free, uncensored research.

  • Penguins ❤️
  • Contrary to popular belief, Emperor Penguins do not mate for life. They are serially monogamous, only having 1 mate per year, but between years fidelity is at around 15%.

    I think this means that they only choose last years partner 15% of the time. Still higher than random chance, but in no way dependant on their partner.

    Was looking up something else on Wikipedia and stumbled onto this fact. I know this is not exactly related to the point you wanted to make, but I might as well share it.

  • hmmm
  • This bike lane is on the left side, but the bike lanes in the rest of the city are on the right. Someone then thought the best way to connect them is to have them cross 2 streets to get to the bike path leading to the right, and from there take 2 left turns if they want to go left, which also has a separate lane for right turns - just for the cars, of course, so that is another lane bicycles need to cross.

    So, depending how the traffic lights work, bicycles have to wait up to 5 times to do a simple left turn. The traffic needs to flow after all, and traffic just means car traffic to some city planners.

  • Nuance? What Nuance?

    Thought about comparing different modes of transport, but realized it would be way too subjective. For example, if 5 km are in biking range is dependent on biking infrastructure, available public transport, how in shape you are...

    But then I realized I can just simplify all these things away to get the optimal transportation flowchart. Simple is always better, right?
