I always think about if our brains are just sophisticated jails to trap our minds in one universe. Are we explorers from another dimension who created human brains to give us a glimpse into this universe? Are other animals similar?

Probably not but it's fun to imagine.

there's lots of monarchists and lots of people who believe very strongly in restricting freedom of movement and who value a rigid hereditary hierarchy, i guess it depends on what part of feudalism you consider essential.

I long for the golden days of yesteryear when the mighty Pharos ruled their people wisely and justly. What will it take to bring us back to those halcyon times, i wonder?

If Uber and Lyft were to bring on drivers as employees with set hourly rates and benefits, their business model no longer makes sense, he added.

We can't go around paying people, what're you doing? That's not what we're about!

I think they kind of don't really care they will just do an invasion anyway and call it toppling a dictator.

I think the minimal level of effort taken to appear even somewhat legitimate is just kind of an I to dot and a T to cross.

Oh i thought i remembered them as being rational, and that irrational ones were invalid. But i was wrong.

Yes, a fraction is a rational number. The rational numbers are the set Q such that for all x in Q, x = a/b for some integer a and b (b != 0).

Decimal notation is just a different way to write a rational number.

Since Q is closed under division meaning that a rational divided by a rational is guaranteed to return a rational number (except for division by zero), then having a fraction with a decimal in it is valid.
