    Let's talk about what aliens can teach us about tech companies

    Very interesting take by Beau this week on the responsibility of tech companies, with some indirect mentions of Elon:

    Blog Tesla Moving Headquarters to Austin, Texas

    Same here. I have 3 Teslas - none of them (or my current Truck) will be replaced with a Tesla. I supported the company since 2012 at a time when it was most financially vulnerable. I feel ... defeated.

    Does the E in your icon stand for the "Epsilon" variant you're trying to create by "letting it rip"?

    Coronavirus

    1) It's unlikely the unvaccinated would have been more careful than the vaccinated. 2) We do know the symptomatic rate of vaccinated was 79%. Unvaccinated could be at worst 21% more. 3) Is there a reason to assume it will be significantly different? Also 80% of the hospitalized were vaccinated...

    Coronavirus

    I need help interpreting/reconciling this: "vaccination coverage among eligible Massachusetts residents was 69%. Approximately three quarters (346; 74%) of cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons" Doesn't this imply that vaccinated and unvaccinated people had about an equal chance of...

    Or ampere-hours. Why does that exist so commonly? Why don't we just use kC (kilo coulombs)? And why on earth does the following conversion calculator exist?? Amperes to Coulombs Per Second Conversion

    Actually, yes and no. Currently east-coast to west-coast you're already dealing with 50ms of roundtrip latency with ideal fiber, and in practice it's closer to 85ms. Initially StarLink will introduce a 15ms to 25ms latency overhead up and down to their nearest fiber backbone. But they plan in...

    So be it. I'd rather lose one county to white supremacy than have it be interweave all over. Economics will prevent radicalism from being widespread. You got to REALLY want it more than anything else. Some people do. If the west coast go completely nuts and implement crazy radical leftist...

    I lived and worked in Saudi Arabia for a few years and had a Palestinian friend there. He was always saying how much more free living in Palestine was compared to Saudi. So I eventually asked him why he moved, fully expecting it would be money, security or something like that. Nope. His wife...

    How about if instead of the blue states supporting the red states with taxes, we just pay to assist individual red state people who enjoy Civil Rights to move to blue states? California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts fund about a $100b to other states. That's easily enough to...

    That's actually exactly how it works in South Africa. Every parking lot have multiple "parking attendants". They're not paid for by the lot owner, they work on tips and each person guards a couple of rows of cars from breakins and thefts. Nobody is armed, it's just big intimidating guys walking...

    The Effect of Ultraviolet C Radiation Against SARS-CoV-2 Inoculated N95 Respirators But they did 1500 mj/cm2 per side. Wow, ok. That's dramatic. That would take about 30 minutes in my UV box. However, at least it's a study on actual SARS-CoV-2. Not sure 1500 is needed outside of respirators...

    Fewer than 1% of Seattle protesters test positive for coronavirus Also, Seattle didn't have the biggest protests by a long shot. We just had the most well known one because of Fox News' fascination with CHAZ/CHOP.

    It doesn't really matter. Either: a) Biden will win and immediately join again. -or- b) Trump will win and we'll still be dealing with Coronavirus until 2025, and the rest of the world will hard block travel to the US. That would render other worldwide pathogens moot.

    Coronavirus

    You would just need to do it once inside of a 6 week period in a given zone with closed borders. The virus would die out quickly after that. So countries can do a rolling vaccine where they do a 6 week vaccine pass, then open borders with other countries that have done the same.

    It takes just a few hours to study the difference between a PCR and a serology test to the point of at least sounding intelligent about it.

    Well there’s a thing, sudden unintended acceleration just happened to me

    It is useful to tell whether it's actual acceleration or perceived acceleration. i.e. In a scenario where you expect the car to decelerate, but it maintains speed it will feel like acceleration, even though it isn't.

    I have family who lives in Dallas in a household that had 3 positives this month. Initially one person in the household tested positive due to symptoms. Then two more a couple of weeks later.

    I never understood the virtue of that. The same goes for Clorox - killing "99%" of virusses. A single sneeze contains about 200 million viral particles. If you kill 99% of them there are still 2 million left. It takes just a few thousand to make you sick. So...

    Wait... Let me get this straight. You are asking people to trust you, and to prove that you are trustworthy you proffer the fact that you've taken confidential information that you've been entrusted with in the past and disseminated it widely on the internet. Am I getting that right?
