    [–] "You are an uneducated loser with no future" Hoihe 1 points ago in TalesFromYourServer

    Still, if one works academia, then they directly benefit the progression of humanity - no matter how little, inconsequential or tangential their research is to the present needs. Be they humanities, physical sciences, life sciences - they lay a foundation that the common industries would never see the need for, so that people in the future may build upon it.

    Being a researcher at some private company isn't much to write about, all your produce is gobbled up by a private entity who hopefully patents it, but most likely just makes you sign an NDA and treat it as a "company secret", holding back humanity. Good money here, but you sell what belongs to the world at whole to a sole entity.

    Show me one private entity that would invest into astronomical studies beyond how to get satellites to LEO. There's a few snowflakes there, but the rest only care about getting a profit in the next ten years.

    One could also engage in fields without research or innovation or design or producing unique products (artist, artisan) but then one can rightly ask "What even is the point of all this?"

    [–] Asked my chemistry teacher (first year of highschool) this "Why do we use the mole (unit) instead of just using the mass (grams) isn't it easier to handle given the fact that we can weigh it easily? why the need to use the mole?" And he said he "doesn't answer to stupid questions" Hoihe 1 points ago in askscience

    While working in the lab,

    it's much easier to say

    "This solution contains 1 milimole of ammonia in every militer" than to say, "this solution contains six times ten to the power of twenty molecules of ammonia in every mililiter"

    I'll often convert my solutions' concentration to some nice number between 1-100 at the scale of prefix-mole/mililiter. It makes it much easier to keep track of things, especially when the sample I'm preparing needs a lot of reagents added.

    I've had enough people interaction from sitting in the till :P: Made me awfully stressed.

    Much prefer the lab, only people around are those I share interests in and we can chat about interesting stuff.

    [–] "You are an uneducated loser with no future" Hoihe 2 points ago in TalesFromYourServer

    Not exactly a fulfilling purpose, and I worked retail/fast-food. Felt like my brain melting from boredom.

    [–] "You are an uneducated loser with no future" Hoihe -5 points ago in TalesFromYourServer

    Eh, I find it hard to see one can have a fulfilling life if they're not challenged by difficult questions to answer. Only places one can find such tend to require either a MSc or a PhD even.

    [–] Who else enjoys manual pipetting? Hoihe 6 points ago in labrats

    I've had a classmate in classic anal who claimed manual pipettes are never used outside of school.

    I should send him this picture.

    (could also just send him pics from the synth lab I visited but bleh)

    I've had a friend who was like that. Turns out she was trans with a retarded father and internalized transphobia.

    [–] Capitalism is not "USA-ism" Hoihe 1 points ago in CapitalismVSocialism

    Consider for a moment -

    Most of the populace havn't got money to properly feed themselves.

    Do you think they can dictate anything? They'll buy whatever is the cheapest, and at worst move on to another cheap brand.

    Imposing penalties on people who add useless mass to washing powders, imposing penalties on people who cheap out on protein in meat products or replace useful proteins with useless amino acids from hydrolising keratin (feathers), a practice that's considered unhealthy even as feedstock, not just human consumption is the right thing to do.

    [–] Capitalism is not "USA-ism" Hoihe 1 points ago in CapitalismVSocialism

    People need to get a degree in chemistry and work a few years in consumer protection.

    Afterwards, they can say "there's no need for regulations."

    [–] Saw this meme template and made it so I can relate Hoihe 1 points ago in trans

    I kinda taught myself not to cry while wearing the mask - might be the same with you. Takes heavy coaxing/security to take that bloody thing off, prolly gonna be the hardest aspect of making transitioning work out - in private settings I'm swell, but public too deathly afraid.

    [–] “You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.” Hoihe 2 points ago in quotes

    One's expectations should always be higher than what reality currently provides, and then work to make them reality.

    Only issue comes is if you're an academic and you're advised not to get involved in politics while your retarded government splurges money on football stadiums rather than making it so your research assistants get paid, ensuring you get hands in your lab.

    [–] What separates a great PhD student from a good one? Hoihe 1 points ago in AskAcademia

    I wonder how many "technician-mustangs" there are in academia - where one spent some time as a technician before moving on.

    [–] What separates a great PhD student from a good one? Hoihe 5 points ago in AskAcademia

    For countries where PhD programmes have a maximum of 3 years, does the marathon-not-sprint approach still work?

    [–] Does anyone else have numerous realistic dreams that they confuse with reality? Hoihe 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    During particularly nasty periods, I'll often "live another life" in my dreams. It was tied to depression caused by dysphoria.

    [–] Does anyone else have numerous realistic dreams that they confuse with reality? Hoihe 2 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    As said, anxiety/depression.

    I usually have it when I have no means to alleviate gender dysphoria, or I have to attend functions that make it worse.

    Now that I'm on HRT/therapy it should hopefully stop.

    It was kind of like the protagonist of the Silver Key, how it felt.

    [–] [DAILY Q&A] Ask and answer any questions you have about the game here. (January 16, 2019) Hoihe 2 points ago in EliteDangerous

    Ended up doing a mission that took 3 separate trips, but only 1 jump. Gave me enough to get a 2C and I finally solved it!

    Noob here, first time playing

    I ended up accepting a contract to a system my FSD is unable to get to. It's 18 ly away and I can only jump 6.56 ly. Navigation can't find a way to reach it either.

    How do I avoid failing contracts like this again?
