    [–] Is my 3 year old son normal?? Karaselt 1 points ago in Parenting

    I was that kid. My parents just didn't let me eat many sugary foods as a result, but it didn't really help. I ended up being much the same well into the 8th grade, then grew out of it when I finally had things like after school sports to sap up that energy.

    My great grandpa would always just tell my mom "he's just all boy" where my dad's proper southern parents thought me the spawn of satan.

    Thing is, if you want him to get all that energy out, he likely won't wait to receive instructions on how to do so. If you find he has some issue, feel free to try to treat it. I'm pretty sure I could've been diagnosed with ADHD if my parents cared to have me evaluated, but I'm happy they didn't. One thing I would recommend is to not make him think you are embarrassed by him and stop the fun early. If his peers were making fun of him and you took him out early because of that, you are just telling him that you are bothered by that and he will start to get bothered too.

    [–] 3 year old with high fever. Karaselt 1 points ago in Parenting

    It should be clarified that fevers are not always good things. They are our body's response, but they can damage the body more than the infection itself actually does. That is why doctors usually prescribe fever-reducing medicine, because our bodies are still capable of fighting infections without a higher body temp.

    [–] We are experts working on The Twins Study to learn how NASA spaceflight affects the human body. Ask Us Anything! Karaselt 1 points ago in IAmA

    I read an article on the correlation between body temperature increase and time spent in space. There was something about proteins that affect imflammation, I suspect you've read (written?) it. Basically it stated that after spending several months in space body temps were around 100f at rest, 104 in exercise, and this persists for some time upon returning to Earth. My question: what implications does this research bring to potential journeys to Mars, and do we think cold-blooded animals would show similar issues for prolonged periods in space?

    [–] Republicans Freak Out As Data Shows That Their Party Is Dying Off: There is an entire generation who know Republicans as a party of endless war,lies, of tax cuts for the wealthy elite, that don’t give a damn about the middle class of devastating economic policies, that don’t know what they are doing Karaselt 1 points ago in TrueReddit

    I agree that currently Warren is looking my best bet. I'm not saying the AMA was my only source of info for Sanders either, just that I read it and was unimpressed. People change or yield new information about their views through their action/inaction as time progresses. As the AMA was fairly recent, I took it as an opportunity to refresh myself on what Bernie stands for and I was less impressed than I expected to be. I am not disillusioned about what a majority of the other people running represent, and depending on who stays/joins/drops out of the race, Bernie might still be my choice, but why be mad at me for wanting better?

    I supported Bernie 2016 but saw his AMA and am considering voting for others this coming election. I don't feel as strongly as the guy above, but Sanders dodged all the important questions and had weak answers for others in his AMA. I still like him, but I am also concerned with him being 78 or something come election time. I'm willing to wait on this decision till election time, but, who knows, maybe someone better will pop up.

    [–] Why are asteroids always going so fast? Karaselt 1 points ago in askscience

    That being the case, is there a way to measure an object's speed relative to space itself? I'm guessing that would require one to know various things like the movement of the observation location relative to what it orbits, relative to what that orbits, and so on?

    [–] What Have You Watched This Past Week That is NOT a Currently Airing Show? [April 7th, 2019] Karaselt 3 points ago in anime

    Terra e...

    Beelzebub

    Non non biyori

    Shirokuma cafe

    Of them, the first I finished and very much enjoyed. The second one I'm not sure how I feel about. Third is nice, fourth is funny.

    Kimi no na wa is good. Your lie in April has feels. Koe no katachi. Boku dake ga inai michi.

    [–] My friend is trying to get into anime what is the first one I should show him Karaselt 2 points ago in anime

    If you friend likes questioning existance then sure evangelion, I watched it early into my anime watching and it turned me off a bit because of the insanity at the end. Not saying it is bad, but maybe not the best for an intro to anime.

    [–] My friend is trying to get into anime what is the first one I should show him Karaselt 1 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago) in anime

    Kimi no na wa is pretty approachable to normal people. It's a movie.

    For series, I think Darling in the Franxx might actually be pretty good for a newcomer. It has action, drama, and some feels, plus cool mechalike stuff.

    NHK ni youkoso is also pretty good for a strange slice of life type of thing. Think this is(was?) on netflix.

    For scifi I just watched Terra-E... and it is actually quite good for modern scifi as it concerns a future where people have opted to be ruled by an AI so they don't mess stuff up. It has a good deal of power structures, emotions, psychic powers and space travel. Also isn't too long a series.

    If your friend likes feels and music, there are a few good ones like Sakamichi no Apollon and Your Lie in April.

    Then there are sports anime for practically every sport, even long distance running now. I would highly recommend Ping Pong the Animation. It is short, free on YouTube, and uses a cool animation style. So if your guy likes ping pong, maybe.

    For humor, I like Detroit Metal City, but I would have you watch it first to see if it wouldn't be too much for your friend. It is short and hilarious, but a little raunchy .

    Hope these gave you some ideas.

    [–] Gamers of Reddit. What’s your most memorable experience in games? Karaselt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    There was a time when I was playing Ace Online a whole bunch. It was a really good game. Anywho I was listening to crystal castles while I was fighting a hard boss and the two activities melded together very well. Now everytime I listen to the same music, I remember how hard and fun that boss was.

    [–] Google dissolves AI ethics board just one week after forming it Karaselt 2 points ago in Futurology

    There are plenty of people who believe that. I live a few blocks from an entire compound of them.

    [–] Google dissolves AI ethics board just one week after forming it Karaselt 2 points ago in Futurology

    The trick is avoiding bias. This is extremely hard to do, which is part of the purpose of designing these committees. If you bring in someone extremely biased, this is problematic. We wouldn't want the tree spiker because they have the bias that trees' lives are more valuable than human lives, don't want the heritage person because they have the bias that LGBT people have less value than straight people. Ultimately AI will be developed with some values instilled by its creators, so when people with obvious flaws in their values are suggested to shape this AI, it is seen as a largely subversive move to the people of the future. I don't think it would be bad to bring conservatives into such an ethics committee, because there is value in traditionalist thought, but not someone who is actively fighting to oppress ANY group of people.

    [–] Google dissolves AI ethics board just one week after forming it Karaselt -1 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago) in Futurology

    Just imagine an all powerful AI that deems any person who isn't straight to be less than human. Sure let's consistently dehumanize 2-15% of the human population because that's not how you get slavery or genocide...

    [–] Google dissolves AI ethics board just one week after forming it Karaselt 1 points ago in Futurology

    Um we would be pissed if a tree spiker was on the board as well. Don't assume that we support one thing to the far left just because we don't support the other to the far right.

    [–] Moving to Topeka - recommendations please Karaselt 4 points ago in topeka

    You can also rent houses in college hill area for 800-1k a month. It's about a 10min drive to the Capitol from college hill. For events, there is a nice biking community, swing dance on Tuesdays at the jayhawk theatre. There is a weekly table tennis meetup at some church. Gage park is a really nice park near college hill. The university also hosts some fun events from time to time. There is the Kansas historical museum, which is pretty nice and has some great hiking trails around it.

    For food, tuptim thai, monsoon indian, and the globe indian restaurants are good for asian food. No good Chinese food I've found yet. There are also a few breweries in NOTO area as mentioned by others.

    Be careful driving because winter just ended so there are many potholes.
