    Big Bang: Expansion Accelerating

    Re: Big Bang: Expansion Accellerating Now I'm no physicist but I think you're overlooking a very simple explanation... There is more space expanding between us and more distant bodies. THAT"S IT! If you're relatively close to a celestial body, the amount of space expanding between you and it...

    Caloric vs protein restriction

    I agree - the source of the meat makes a huge difference. Regarding red meat the best is definitely 100% grass fed and organic but I find that if it's at least raised humanely and with no hormones, antibiotics, etc... that alone makes a difference. I've slowly added dairy and just a little...

    Smart Watches!

    I tend to find your posts reliably thought-provoking and often informative architect. I keep thinking I need a new tablet but when it comes time to shop I always find the purchase hard to justify. But each time newer and better phones come out I find myself drooling over the most subtle...

    Smart Watches!

    For the past few weeks I've paid closer attention to Amazon's "Lightning Deals" and there have been a huge number of conventional watches showcased and sold out. They also have the original Sony "Smart Watch" at a steep discount lately. I think I saw it at sixty-something dollars once! I've...

    Smart Watches!

    This nicely illustrates your ignorance on the topic. These aren’t intended to replace your phone. The vision saturating the industry is more of an accessory to your phone. A future oriented thinker like myself recognizes that today’s smartphone is the PC of the future. It’s more than capable of...

    Obsessive Interests...List Yours!

    I get those too. I'll get ridiculously obsessed with something and spend a large majority of my free time on it for extended periods then suddenly something else grabs my interest for a while. Some are highly transient. For instance, I spent a lot of the past few days learning about the smart...

    Wish I had more access to those early technologies to experiment with. What's your take on Glass? Any other particularly notworthy wearable/cyborgian technology to think about?

    Smart Watches!

    I'm amazed by the strength of the opinions of the nay-sayers on this topic. As architect insinuates, I doubt you have much (if any) experience with smart watches or wearable computing in general. Not to assume you're all wrong, but how can you assume you're right about a technology in its...

    Right but isn't the iWatch all grapevine rumor right now? Did Apple even confirm they are entering the market? If course they'd be crazy not to. Especially considering they have a ready made market share dying to lap up whatever they roll out... Wrt odd school pre-smart-phone smart watches...

    Looking up Metawatch now. Hoping iWatch prediction is wrong because I have thus far resisted moving to the apple market simply because I like my variety of devices and don't want to get sucked into Apple. I don't want to buy an apple phone, computer, tablet, watch, tv, implant, etc... That...

    Just for the record I'm not asking about your opinion on the validity of smartwatches overall. If you're not interested though that's fine and you have the right to state your opinion. I'll even take the time to respond: I haven't used a standard watch since I started carrying around a small...

    I knew it was coming soon but got a little shocked when I walked into Best Buy the other day and realized we were already in the second, perhaps 3rd generation of full-blown smart watches! Samsung has my eye at the moment. Their Gear and Gear 2 have a camera, speaker, microphone, and...

    It's interesting because to me some of these cannot be mutually exclusive. What's the term for the opposite of mutually exclusive? inclusive? Anyway, to me, true unequivocal genius would play part in enabling me to do great things. Do away with the majority of suffering in the world. Save...

    Avoiding infatuation

    That's a bit wordy but I don't want to alter or delete it because it's totally heart felt and real. BUT, I realize now that my #1 suggestion should probably be to go on a dating website. If you, like most of us on INTPf, are more comfortable interacting on the computer than face to face with...

    It might have helped if you specified a condition/crime such as pedophilia.

    What is your easiest method of learning?

    I did attempt to answer it but n=1 isn't always optimal. His neurochemical imbalance may be slightly different from mine. For instance, the "antidepressant" known as Bupropion can be highly effective against ADD in some individuals. I had some success with it, especially where rote memorization...

    I'll chime in here... Those of you who deny the existence of ADD/ADHD are off your rocker. Do the research, don't just spout your opinions as though they're facts. If you want to claim it's all a big lie or nonexistent at the very least cite some sources. I was diagnosed with ADHD as a very...

    A good point about the value of play. I do think I have plenty of "play" in my life. I'd go so far as to call myself especially playful, even child-like in nature. So, one thing I'm learning from this thread is that perhaps my perceived "seriousness" is actually just combined difficulty with...
