Fair points.

EDIT: What if we just mirrored every leftist sub on reddit? And then try to get the leftists to come here. How do you feel about that? u/ziq

u/ziq - Any thoughts on this?

Excellent post.

Thanks! I'm actually interested in ultimately specializing in Pediatric Critical Care or Neonatalogy.

Yes. I'm actually curious if anyone knows an article or study that summarizes the ecological burden of smartphones.

Hey, good luck! Congratulations! Next is internship, right?

Yup! I chose Pediatrics. I've been on the Interview Trail for Residency since early October.

I finished my last medical school exam today.

Yeah, here's what happened http://archive.is/8tKwd

I think he's been wanting to have an excuse to ban me ever since I posted this. This guy just can't handle it rationally when someone attacks ECP. It's like his God or something.

This is exactly why politics is trash.

Same.

isn't the sum of infinite zeros still zero?

So that's the question at hand. The Arrow Paradox involves looking at instants of time, i.e. when the interval of time is 0 rather than some incredibly small number like Planck time. At a particular instant in time, the Arrow does not traverse any distance. So the problem that the paradox brings forth is that if at each instant in time the distance traversed is 0, then how can it be that when you add the distances traversed from all the instants together you get some non-zero answer? (This is basically your question.)

I've been told by another person that measure theory resolves this, because we can prove in math that a line segment is comprised of an infinite number of points and each point has 0 length and 0 width. If this is the case - that an infinite number of points each with 0 length can, when added together, create a non-zero length (the length of the line segment) - then the same kind of logic could apply to the Arrow Paradox thus resolving it.

I don't find this particularly intuitive, but that's why I'm asking about it here to see if others can take a crack at it.

This seems to avoid the fact that the Arrow Paradox involves looking at instants of time, i.e. when the interval of time is 0 rather than some incredibly small number like Planck time.

rioting is literally just selfish instant gratification and it helps nobody

Not true. Rioting is an example of "propaganda of the deed", and as such its target audience is other oppressed/marginalized people who are at or near the breaking-point.

I'm not disavowing rioting as a tactic when it makes sense

When does it "make sense"? What would be the right circumstance? Government will always use rioting as a scapegoat in the manner you worry about. So if that's your main reason to oppose rioting, it would seem that there would never be an appropriate circumstance in which to riot.
