I couldn't stand being at work today so I took off and walked all morning photgraphing trees and graffiti along the way.

My tucking gaff arrived this week. I knew it'd be nice to not have a bulge in my pants; but I've gotta say, I underestimated just how nice it'd be - It's really, really nice, folks.

I wasn't really expecting it to boost my confidence as much as it has, either. I kinda wish I could wear it all the time, now, but I definitely can't.

It's been fun hearing weekly updates about this.

I mean, I gotta have something going on besides being angry all the time. I'm barely functional as it is. But it's been really nice to have supportive people cheering me on with it!

I wish you were in my neck of the woods still, I'd help dig a ditch. I could use the exercise.

how do you keep going; how does anyone keep going with the constant firehose of shit that the world has to offer?

I'm pretty broken right now. The only thing that's keeping me going is friends and this tiny bit of hope for a long-denied dream.

I'm anticiv and you're transhuman so I'm not sure how much help I can be but I totally feel for you.

Sometimes, I ignore it. Sometimes, just sometimes, I let myself play a game and pretend the world isn't on fire.

sticking around long enough to watch it burn is good motivation

I like the idea of fire and a big barbeque and eating the rich.

I'm vegan, so of course I want my share to go to the puppy dogs and kitty cats, but I still want my share of richburgers at the bbq.

See you there. :D

I'm pretty sure we've established that the rich are indeed a vegan protein source.

We are resilient, and death is final. The fact of time's passing provides a glimmer of the sense that it might pass towards something less shit.

And when there isn't even that working for us, for me there's the fact that I care about some of the people in this world, and that I might be able to help them to suffer less through this.

Yesterday, I got bitterly angry at some liberal friends who were posting snarky comments about the hurricane and the fires in the US, who seemed to want to give themselves credit for just believing in climate change. I had to force myself not to shitpost "Where's your fucking praxis? You don't get a cookie for believing in objectively true things. Fucking do something."

Tonight, I saw two giant, beautiful trash pandas climbing a tree together outside my apartment complex. I backed out of their way and thought how lovely they were. It didn't make me feel better but it was a nice sight to see. Also, saw some acorns under an oak tree on my evening walk which are probably from squirrels trying to eat them before they're mature. It made me happy to think soon I will be able to forage some acorns.

I went out behind my place for a smoke the other night. I always leave the lights off to not disturb anyone. I heard a noise after a minutes and turned on my phone's flashlight, and there was a trash panda just sitting right beside me at my feet. Scared the shit outta me.

When they're scared, they will mess you up. A bit of healthy fear is quite alright. :)

Today I discovered just how incredibly stupid shit the public transport from Barcelona to my hometown is. 1 hour and close to no problems if you're kind of rich and own a car to take the road. 3 hours it took me to get home after losing the first train because for some reason there wasn't another train or bus for an hour and a half and they wouldn't give me my 6€ back. Fuck politicians and the public transport businesses.

Electronics Engineer: Who's Maxwell?

TheLegendaryBirdMonster wrote (edited )

I'm not sure if you're joking or not so I'll reply seriously

He's a dude from the 18XX that summed up the 19 equations that they had in electromagnetism into 4 (stealing all the credit).

With those 4 equations you can explain how magnetic fields and electric fields interact. they can also explain how light moves.

right now I'm in physics undergrad and it's nuts how all the different subjects of physics and maths I studied up till now are all becoming coherent with each other.

I was joking about the fact that in electronics engeering Maxwell's field differences must always sum to zero or the circuits wont work. So electronics engineers take this for granted but many don't know what for.

I finished an ICU rotation this week, which I loved. Definitely want to go into this specialty.

Despite what many claim, there's not divide between individualism and communism. I became interested in all this by personal desire, and greed; mutual well being came second.

Depends on the communism. Egoist communism, sure. But most communists are staunch collectivists, and the practice of communism has a lot more weight than the theory (and there can be so many different interpretations of theory, too). It's safe to say most people have interpreted communism as authoritarian and collectivist, rightly or wrongly. Politics and language don't remain stagnant, and there's no way to really throw out 100 years of missteps; the history of communism can't be erased. It's all part of communism now, and whatever it was intended to be while Marx was alive; before the theory was put into practice, isn't what it is in 2018, or what it will be in 2118.

Egoist communism is a thing, here is a reading list with some stuff on it. When Engels recommended The Unique and his property to Marx he actually intended to accept egoism as a basis for communism. Marx of course didn't think so and proceeded to write The German Ideology.

The interesting thing about Marx and his contemporaries was his most common complain. He thought Feuerback, Max Stirner, Proudhon and others did not always went far enough on their conclusions and on many occasions remained limited in the very same framework they were trying to critique.
