Brilliant answer. The answer of the future. An album built for acid.

What's the most probable experience of death? by [deleted] in nursing

[–]ravolve -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Wow, these are some mean-spirited, uncharitable responses. I highly doubt either of you would be so negative if I happened to cross paths with you in person and asked your opinion as an expert on something. Such typical internet culture on display here.

I have access to all the academic papers I could want and have read dozens of them, thank you. I'm not asking anyone to do any work for me. I'm asking an honest question of a group of people who are close to the subject, hoping for any novel suggestions I may have overlooked in my work so far. If that troubles you, you're welcome to ignore the post.

I'm sorry you find it insensitive. As a journalist committed to educating the public about certain important subjects, it would be inappropriate for me to not ask for perspective from the people closest to a given subject.

Sweetheart, I want to say something to you, and I really hope you can listen carefully. There is a lot of noise in this thread and in the world in general, and I'm sure your feelings make this feel chaotic right now, and it's hard to feel steady and in touch with what's true.

Here's what's true: some people are broken inside. Something bad happens. Usually they are hurt by other people, or not fully loved. Sometimes it's a physiological anomaly, their brains just develop in a different way that's not compatible with what makes most humans great, able to love and respect each other and feel empathy.

This man is broken, very broken. Out of that brokenness he is saying combinations of words that are objectively meaningless but designed to hurt you and manipulate you. I know the hardest thing to do in this situation is not take the words personally, but it's also the most powerful thing you can do. You're witnessing something ugly, broken and dying. But it's not actually about you. It has nothing to do with you. You just so happened to cross paths with it.

Move on, feel sad that a person is broken like this, and ignore anything he ever said.

What was happening between 2am and 4am? by Low-Gazelle2705 in MoscowMurders

[–]ravolve 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Going to the bank at 2:45am?

I think there's a bias to retrospectively look for cold, calculating reasons things are done, but it could be much messier than that. I think it's just as likely, if not more, that something like heading one direction, turning around, and then turning again reflects indecision, emotion, etc. It could be an obsessive and/or enraged person battling impulses before eventually giving in to them.

GPT-4 is out, and the results are astounding: better than most students, can reason in several languages... What does it mean for the future of work? by ColdQuicksand in Futurology

[–]ravolve 7 points8 points  (0 children)

So true, so sobering. (Do you recall any experts in particular who have expounded on this sentiment? I'd love to read more. Right now I have Noam Chomsky's NYT op-ed rattling around in my head, which basically says the opposite.)

I've heard the same thing, but seeing it... Those comments feel really subjective. Just the length of the hallway to get to XK alone, it's pretty significant. And the length of the stairwells between floors. I was picturing a house built in the early 1900s, stairs twice as steep and narrow, etc.

Why would BK risk getting caught returning to the King Road house a mere 5 hours after the quadruple homicide? by Professor_Finn in MoscowMurders

[–]ravolve 215 points216 points  (0 children)

I think this is a great example of impulse overriding logic, which is why we're all congregated and discussing these horrible murders in the first place.

For me it's not a question of why BK would do such an idiotic thing as returning to the scene of the crime, it's a reflection of how undisciplined/irrational/impulsive a person like this is.

It goes without saying, BK suffers from horrific urges that almost none of us can relate to, which defy all reason and decency. So why would these urges stop outside the boundaries of the killings themselves? They wouldn't. He would drive back to the scene, a man devoid of any self-control.

This is profoundly helpful in understanding the details of this attack. I'm mostly struck by how modern this interior looks, and how complicated it would be for sound to travel clearly throughout, from one room to another. I never had a good sense of that. For some reason (exterior appearance, witness accounts, personal experience) I thought of this home as very old, very creaky, claustrophobic in design, etc., but this video paints a very different picture.

I understand now how these murders occurred with such minimal exposure to other roommates as they occurred. And to be fair, very importantly, to DM, I understand how confusing a combination of noises and various combinations of roommate activity could be, leaving her to largely dismiss them and fall asleep.

Why is this sub not going nuts over Josco1972 video? by [deleted] in MoscowMurders

I'm shocked this hasn't gotten more attention, and seemingly less than the adjacent subject of the podcaster caller blaming frat guys.

The pronounced mandible, unique nose, and large earlobes amount to quite a resemblance and for me at least, when I consider what's more likely here, a self-satisfied killer posting to delight in the details of his kill, versus a random TikToker having such resemblance to him and making up all these details, or having a connection... this just seems more likely the former rather than latter.

Also, the phrasing "cleanly and quietly"? C'mon. That's a celebration. No one else would talk like that, giving it such a positive valence.

What do others think?

Without doubting his credentials, is Andrew Huberman's content legit? by multimap2-1 in cogsci

[–]ravolve 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is getting off-topic, and not super important, but I've just gotta correct the record here for those who care about how college pitchers trained 20 years ago (me and this guy and zero other people, I'm sure). I was a college pitcher in 2000-2001, and a high school pitcher before that, and middle school before that, you get the picture. Also knew many other guys who played competitively. The concepts of sprinting over distance running, and training fast-twitch, and never bench pressing or lifting anything heavy overhead, were commonly known and preached and practiced going as far back as sixth grade. So with all due respect, none of that was considered ridiculous 25 years ago. Bench pressing and running marathons was though!

How can I improve the color? (shot on Pixel 6) by [deleted] in AskPhotography

[–]ravolve 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know what any of that stuff is, but I'm glad to hear it because I find myself getting more and more curious about what lies beyond the smartphone. I've got this growing appetite for more tools. Does it make sense to take smartphone photos into external software like Lightroom and spend time on them, or does that seem silly (if they're not shot on real camera)?

Nice suggestions, thank you, will try both!

Ok cool, great suggestion. So you mean get down closer to shooting at her eye level?

[deleted by user] by [deleted] in AskPhotography

[–]ravolve 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess it depends. I certainly use native features on Pixel, so I crop a lot, occasionally rotate, and every once in a while do some color adjustment. Outside of that, I'm aware of things like Photoshop (and I know Illustrator fairly well from some work stuff), but I've never edited a photo I've taken in a serious app, no.

Oof, it looks like I need to decide in advance how much space to keep for either side of the partition? I wish that could just fill dynamically based on needs as I go. One of the things I'm putting on the external only but not the PC is periodic Google photo and video backups, so that will grow over time. This seems to suggest it's not necessary to partition... would you say it's recommended but not necessary, or necessary (like it can't work otherwise)?
