Re: asymmetric brownian motion

Interesting! I wonder if different colloidal substance would show greater or lesser asymmetry.  Might a more or less polar solvent affect the results?  Might the particular elements or particular isotopes of the colloidal substance affect the results? I tried a handful off colloidal at my shelf whi...

Re: Your rants here

2nd day. Still no clue of an improvement from the model 6. What is an Isuck? Iphone, I thought you were an Apple fan?? I am a customer but less of a fan than I was before. At this point, they suck less than the alternatives. I have mostly liked my iPhones (I've owned the 3, 4S, and now have an X) b...

baseball-sized hail in June. Global cooling is all too real
Actually, more severe hail storms are driven by more severe convention currents which are driven by more severe heating.

I do, but you should try harder if you want to make an impression that you know something about science and scientific thinking.

1963... There are so many accompanying factors present in such studies that they are practically useless. We have better, non-invasive (which is important for the study conclusiveness) techniques these days.

There is much we don't know about how humans and animals learn to see.  But it is clear that they fail to learn to see if only exposed to disembodied snapshots the way current AI systems are.  Even streaming imagery is insufficient.  Interacting with the world, moving through it, reaching out and t...
