Why do you downvote based on opinion? by hi_ma_friendz in AskReddit
[–]baloo_the_bear 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Opinions are subjective. ‘I don’t like Hawaiian pizza’ is an opinion. However most people conflate opinions with ignorant world views. ‘The earth is flat’ is not an opinion, rather it is a demonstrably false assertion. I down vote when I see the latter, and all people who like Hawaiian pizza, because that shit is disgusting.

People who went to an Ivy League, where are you now? by Rosberg_For_Sure in AskReddit
No I went to Cornell, did a BS in mechanical engineering, an MS in tissue engineering, moved to Cali to work designing spinal implants, decided to go to medical school, became a doctor and now I’m a pulmonary and intensive care doc in NJ mainly because that’s where my wife is from (also all my family is in the northeast).
Reddit, what invention has the best story behind its creation? by ch405_5p34r in AskReddit
[–]baloo_the_bear 2 points3 points4 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Dynamite. Alfred Nobel was trying to find a way to stabilize nitroglycerin for everyday use. In one of his experiments he accidentally blew up his little brother. The town council made him move his lab to a barge out on a lake. Eventually he figured out a suitable formulation which resulted in much more efficient warfare. Seeing the consequences of his life’s work he create the Nobel Peace Prize to incentivize peace-related works.

Laura Ingraham returns following boycott, says liberals 'cutting off free speech' by [deleted] in politics
[–]baloo_the_bear 4 points5 points6 points 8 days ago (0 children)
Freedom of speech is not freedom from consequence. The only thing freedom of speech protects you from is governmental censorship. You’re fully free to espouse whatever you want, but don’t expect people to be forced to listen. We can let the ‘invisible hand of the free market’ do its work. If advertisers feel they don’t want to be associated with someone, they have every rights as private companies to pull their ad dollars.
How does the place right behind your visual field look like? by [deleted] in AskReddit

The eye socket? I think we're way past Funyuns at this point.
What was the point that made you turn your life around? by PhotoCropDuster in AskReddit
Not to go all motivational speaker on you, but you can if you want to. Outside influences can alter your behavior a bit, but true change comes from within. You just have to start making choices with the change you want in mind. Remove yourself from situations you know will lead you to making choices you'll regret. You have a choice, always remember that. All your choices have consequences either good or bad.
You mean your face? Or the back of your head? A mirror or two should square that away for you.

On a scale of one to Funyuns, how high are you right now?
What takes less than five minutes and should be done every day? by [deleted] in AskReddit
Cleaning your asshole
I woke up with a massive hangover on a random person's couch staring at an empty bottle of Jack after a house party. In the drive through to Carl's Jr I realized if I didn't do something, one day I'd wake up and be 60 with nothing to show for my life, if I even made it that far.

In India they’re pretty common because everyone eats with their hands. Maybe it’s changed I haven’t been back in a long time.

It’s ok, when I was a kid the first time I came across one I not only ate the lemon I drank the water too.

People with birthdays on a major holiday, how have your birthday experiences been? by SheZowRaisedByWolves in AskReddit
[–]baloo_the_bear 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I'm a July 4th birthday. It's pretty great. As a little kid I was convinced all the celebrations and fireworks were just for me, growing up all the kids and parents in the neighborhood had off and we'd do a big BBQ and bonfire, and as an adult it's pretty much guaranteed I won't have to work. Additionally, it's not a traditional 'gift' holiday so I don't feel like I'm forcing people to get me a gift for the holiday and my birthday. I did grow up to be a bit or a pyromaniac, but I'm ok with it.

What happens to visual processing when we blink? by SteelBeams4JetFuel in askscience
There’s no special visual processing for blinking.
Since you also were asking about saccades, the motion of the eye is so fast it causes blurring. This blurring is ignored by the brain and visual input is replaced by whatever image is seen at the end of the saccade. This is why a second hand on a clock can seem to linger for longer than a second if you saccade onto it at the right moment.
