I checked in on some trans friends of mine and they said "gently caress Pick". They don't post on SA and I wasn't asking about Pick and honestly I'm a bit concerned.

Every loving time, every loving TIME someone makes a joke about quantum mechanics, they get the physics wrong. I am so sick of it.

The observer effect is not the uncertainty principle, and Schrodinger's Cat is not a real thing!

I dunno. It was all part of the bubble in exotics and specifically giant birds at the time. I guess people assumed if they could make that much money off ostriches and emus then why not cassowary as well since they are smaller and you can fit more in a pen? They quickly figured out they are dangerous assholes nobody should be around.

I mean the whole thing was stupid and a classic example of a bubble with no underlying good reason. Even if the American public had bought into the whole ostrich meat thing ultimately the type of money you could make would be about the same as cattle. The prices started out high because of the rarity and it kept going at that level until there were no more buyers. My parents knew this, but my dad got greedy and thought he could do it one more year before it popped.

Edit: did a google search for ostrich bubble and there is a lot of good articles about what happened. Looks like the same bubble happened in the UK and Australia too. Ostrich and Emu are red meat and require less resources to raise than a cow and the meat is extremely lean so it was marketed as a solution during the low fat health craze of the 90s to be able to still eat red meat but healthier than beef.
Are they lower greenhouse gas emissions per kilo of meat? Because if so, new bubble ahoy!

When I was five years old my family fostered and trained some lambs to walk on a lead, come when called and other small tricks, all as part of my small rural school's annual "calf club day". About a month before the competition, after several months of working with and bonding with a lamb, I went out to feed mine who I had named Wooly. I immediately noticed that something was wrong; she was lying on her side, head bent at an unnatural angle, blue in the face and with foam still fresh on her now-cold lips. It turned out she had eaten a poisonous plant and died, probably in a lot of pain. In this recipe for lamb ragout, I will draw on these memories to...

I once read a book on exactly that subject that argued, quite convincingly or at least it made sense to me, that video games were not inherently art, but that of course any individual game had the potential to be art, listed several games that were and weren't art (like, according to quite serious philosophical groundwork on the subject of art), and perhaps most importantly made the point that a game's quality as art was almost entirely independent of its quality as a game. Tetris - unarguably great game, captivating and influential, but not, philosophically speaking, art.
Tetris is a game where everything you create is destroyed by your own efforts and you only lose when you finally produce something of permanence. How isn't that art?
