i went to read about cochlear implants

quote:

The discovery that electrical stimulation in the auditory system can create a perception of sound occurred around 1790, when Alessandro Volta (the developer of the electric battery) placed metal rods in his own ears and connected them to a 50-volt circuit, experiencing a jolt and hearing a noise "like a thick boiling soup".

RIP badass scientists

i once almost got in a fight over a pub quiz when a pivotal question was something like "after english, which language is spoken in the most countries?" and the supposed answer was sign language even though it's not "spoken" nor is it the same language in all countries

that's a really terrible question anyway because i'll bet all 6 of the official united nations languages have native speakers in every country in the world, so even if sign language does have speakers users in every country, at best it is a tie

i mean come on, 1/5 of the world is chinese, every country in the world is virtually guaranteed to have at least one speaker of chinese

in german "u" is pronounced "oo" not "you"

hamburgers are definitely sandwiches, don't be stupid

however open-faced sandwich is an oxymoron. if you don't have the top piece it's just a pile of food on bread. not a sandwich

from a page about william gibson's books

quote:

Researcher Colin Laney, who has a mysterious ability to identify patterns in vast tracts of information, appears in All Tomorrow's Parties and is the main protagonist of Idoru. Another recurring character is Rei Toei, the "virtual idol" ("idoru" being a mistaken Japanese rendering of "idol" -- the correct Japanese is "aidoru"), an AI pop star.

it's not *ugh* "idoru", it's aidoru, uha aha aha aha *snort* obviously

ok so like i started to read that and it's all "trying to eliminate discrimination against fat women in offices and schools and stuff" which is fair enough i guess

then i got here

quote:

According to Monica Persson, over 56 percent of obese or overweight women have answered that they have been treated disrespectfully by their physicians, and 46 percent view their physicians as uncomfortable with the women's weight. Fat feminists argue that the likelihood of women to experience discrimination increases proportionally with body size; women who are naturally larger than the norm would be forced into a cycle of spending more money on health care just to compensate for being overweight.

holy poo poo, you mean if you're huge and unrepentant your doctors get mad at you and your healthcare costs more? goddamn

i didn't say it was ew yucky gross, just i don't really see why "faintly metallic" is specifically desirable. does it go with anything? i wouldn't call metallic a *good* flavor

and the first thing i asked was "is it just for color" so

can you use the salt block more than once? like at the same party to cook many fish, not like put it away in the cupboard for later. or does it break or melt or something the first time you use it


e
okay i guess i could just read the website, apparently they are reusable. do they melt when you wash them? how long do they last? do they taste like fish forever?

i had a friend in high school who was african american. she was white and her family was a long line of wealthy dutch landowners who immigrated to america after apartheid started to disintegrate

i also had a friend who was black. his father was an aboriginal from australia and his mother was a native canadian

oh and there was a nice old lady at our church who always referred to balthazar, the black one of the three wise men from the christ nativity story, as an "african american". that was sort of cute actually
