    [–] Reddit markdown codes psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in coolguides

    Let's be honest, you don't use the quote function to call attention to a fine quote, you use that shit when you need to destroy someone's argument and you're going to do it piece by piece.

    [–] Burgers that are so big you can't even bite them are stupid psuedophilosopher 2 points ago in unpopularopinion

    Yeah, the scary shit is the stuff that's actually likely to be your cause of death. There's around 45,000 suicides each year, which is a little bit less every single day than the total amount of people killed by serial killers each year. And suicide is 10th place in the top ten ways you'll probably die list.

    [–] Kick the main boss of the company out of your bar at a company drinks? Okay. psuedophilosopher 0 points ago in MaliciousCompliance

    My brain is having trouble with this. So is it that by cooling the drink more quickly, you are saying that the ice melts slower in the cooled drink? Wouldn't that only be because the same amount of ice has melted to cool the drink, just taken from a larger surface area of ice?

    I think that the room temperature drink has a certain amount of energy in it, and to lower the temperature to the desired point, it would have to put a specific amount of energy into the ice, thereby melting a specific amount of ice to reach desired temperature. By increasing the surface area of the ice, you would accomplish this more quickly, but wouldn't it still be the same amount of energy, and therefore melt the same amount of ice into water?

    Also, regarding the continued melting of ice, would it not melt at the same rate in both scenarios? Inside the glass, in both scenarios, the energy of the drink and the ice inside it are attempting to reach a state of equilibrium, and increasing the area of contact between the two would make this happen more rapidly, but once that state is achieved, there is still the glass itself trying to reach a state of equilibrium with the room around it. Regardless of there being more or less ice in the drink, the total surface area of the drink and the glass as being touched by the room around it stays equal. Therefore the averaged temperature of the drink will be rising to meet that of the room at the same rate regardless of how much ice is in the drink. Therefore the ice would be melting at a constant rate.

    Doesn't thermodynamics and physics disprove your statement that more ice is better for preventing water from diluting the drink?

    Some dude that used to be the boss of the serial crimes unit of the FBI estimates that the US has between 25 and 50 uncaught active serial killers at any given time, and that collectively they kill around 150 people per year.

    [–] Why does my school think this is an appropriate question to ask kids? psuedophilosopher 2 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in teenagers

    Yeah, the knee jerk reaction is that this question is fucked up for how people would assume the information would be used, but this question might be an important question to know the answer to. If it's used to measure the detrimental effects of the white guilt culture on today's youth, and is grounds for developing a better way forward, then it could be turning point for future generations.

    Questions for collecting scientific data aren't evil on their own, it's how that data is used going forward that will be good or evil.

    [–] I’m always here for you psuedophilosopher 0 points ago in wholesomememes

    I don't disagree with the concept, I just think the dichotomy is hilarious. The post is all about the feel good aspect of having a person say they won't give up on you, and it gets tons of up votes, but when a person says they are doing exactly that for someone, the responses are people telling them to be ready to give up on the person they say they won't.

    The juxtaposition of what reddit up votes is just so funny to me.

    [–] I’m always here for you psuedophilosopher -17 points ago in wholesomememes

    I love reddit sometimes. Here's a post that is on a wholesome subreddit showing how much it can matter to hear a person say they won't give up on you, and then a person says they are going through that very thing, and the top reply is basically "yeah, that's nice, but you should prepare yourself to give up on him."

    [–] Truck driver was surprised psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in gifs

    Yeah, unlike the democrats, who get elected relying completely and 100% on vote from college educated constituents. There's plenty of geniuses and morons on both sides of the political spectrum.

    [–] Truck driver was surprised psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in gifs

    Yeah, totally. Republicans are all uneducated, especially the ones that own all the corporations and buy congressmen and pass laws to benefit themselves. Ignorant fuckers that lot.

    [–] Truck driver was surprised psuedophilosopher -1 points ago in gifs

    No, see, those are buzzwords that democrats use without having any understanding of them. Totally different.

    [–] Truck driver was surprised psuedophilosopher 5 points ago in gifs

    I guess you missed it because you focused in on the one aspect you care about, but based on him calling the country unrecognizably communist, while at the same time saying to keep your commie hands off my social security, it's pretty clear he is mocking uneducated republicans that use buzzwords for things they don't have any understanding of.

    [–] Horse sweat evaporating after work psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in gifs

    I've done that while changing a tire in the cold. I'm a person that naturally sweats about three times as much as a normal person, and add to that the bitch and a half that is changing a tire using a scissor jack to lift the car, having to lower it after you get all the lugs off to pop the tire off, then lift it back up again...

    [–] TIL of the Son of Sam laws that state convicted criminals cannot profit in any way from their crimes whether it be from books, tv, film, etc. All proceeds from these deals go directly to the victims or their families. psuedophilosopher 5 points ago in todayilearned

    There's a lot of wrong information being posted here. The real lawsuit was based on collection of debt for a previous judgment against OJ. OJ lost a civil lawsuit for wrongful death filed by the family of Ron Goldman. The judgment against him was for 33.5 million dollars, and OJ was not able to pay the full amount. His house was seized, and all of his non essential properties were auctioned off and he still wasn't able to pay the full amount owed. In America, when a judgment is made against you, there's no bankrupting out of the debt. Bankruptcy can protect you from having all of your money taken, as you will still need a basic amount just to survive, but you will still owe the money until it's all paid.

    When OJ was paid an advance for the book he was writing, the Goldman family sued to collect the advance payment for the book against the money still owed on the judgment. When the book was published, they sued to own all rights to the book and collect all proceeds from it, again to pay money towards the still unfulfilled judgment.

    The court decision was in their favor, and now they own all rights to the book written by OJ.

    [–] Incomprehensible 7-Pointed Star psuedophilosopher 6 points ago in woahdude

    Making it impossible to fully comprehend as a single image. "literally"

    Lol, what the hell are you on right now? I bet someone could send you to another dimension is they posted a nine point star for you right now.

    [–] Maybe we're all playable characters in a cosmic video game, and the fridge is the save point, which is why we all sorta open it, look inside, and then wander off without eating anything. psuedophilosopher 0 points ago in Showerthoughts

    If that's the case, kill me and let me load up the first save I ever made.

    The concept has been explored in a few movies, but in my opinion the ability to reload to a previous save point is the most powerful superpower possible. Groundhogs Day, Edge of Tomorrow, Happy Deathday, and probably more.

    [–] Investigation reveals 700 victims of Southern Baptist sexual abuse over 20 years psuedophilosopher 60 points ago in news

    Forgiveness in this sense is just letting go of the hatred you would feel for someone that has wronged you. If you loaned someone a thousand bucks and they refused to pay you back, you could forgive them for their actions against you and choose to not hate them, but that doesn't mean you have to trust them again and be willing to loan them another grand.

    [–] There was attempt to put on a non scaring show psuedophilosopher 1 points ago in therewasanattempt

    My point being that because it is scripted, and as you challenged my reasoning based on nobody else turning around, the one duck turning around and behaving in the way that it did, it is clearly a part of the script.

    [–] That’s rough buddy psuedophilosopher 31 points ago in memes

    And yet, assuming you as a random person I have never met are at best slightly above average, I bet there's a lot of them in the world that could talk circles around you if you were in a room with them. Liberalism and conservatism are values, not markers of intelligence. I generally lean something both would consider foolish, libertarian, but I know that there are a great many people in the world smarter than me on any side of an argument.

    Either way I'll upvote you for commenting to me.
