[SERIÖS] Varför anses Samer vara Sveriges ursprungsbefolkning? by GermanFritz in sweden

Japp. Ena anledning att Columbus gav sig ut överhuvudtaget var för att hitta västvägen till Kina. Poängen var inte att hitta något nytt.

På goda grunder. Götar togs inte från sina familjer för att, säg, lära sig danska.

Why psychopaths make such bad first impressions - New research shows why psychopaths fail the first impression test. The results paint a negative picture of interpersonal interactions with individuals scoring highly on any Dark Tetrad traits (psychopathy, Machiavellianism, narcissism, and sadism). by mvea in science

I can't imagine normal people being able to effectively utilize the social skills of a high functioning psychopath

So you want to compare the average joe vs a rockstar? What's the point of that?

There are lots of miserable people out there who score highly in these "dark traits" and don't manage to convince all that many people they're good persons.

Eh, the country also sees billions of good acts every day. There are more people there than in North and South America together. A lot of things are getting better.

Doctors tried to lower $148K cancer drug cost; makers triple price of pill by CaptainTomato21 in EverythingScience

I think cures need to be rewarded by all nations through some kind of international body. Today, cures can be much less profitable than temporary fixes. A drug that only needs to be used once can’t compete, because it kills its own market.

This is an example of how capitalism and health care sometimes are completely at odds with each other.

Nästan alla blindtarmsoperationer är akuta, och medför inga men.

Då brukar det framgå, tydligt. Det händer att unga dör tidigt och hastigt, men oftast är de då redan diagnostiserade med den sjukdom som alla vet kunde leda till döden. Läste just om en Fishmans, där en medlem dog av ett känt hjärtfel.

Svenskarna har svängt: 4 av 10 vill ha betydligt färre flyktingar by donaldo3 in sweden

Det är stor skillnad på hur världen uppfattas. För 11-12 år sedan var jag på en föreläsning om nationalismens död i Krakow. Jag tyckte dödförklaringen lät förtida, bland annat tänkte jag på hur många skottar kämpade för självständighet och en omröstning om urträde ur Storbritannien. Jag fick inget större gehör, förstås.

Australien hade också en vapenamnesti och fick in en del vapen.

Man får nog inget från aktiva kriminella, men kanske från periferin.

+25% from fog alone seems off. +25% is what I experience on shorter trips at 0F.

This doesn’t stop me from me from averaging 40 mpg (6l/100km) with my Avensis. I drive 70 on the highway, and in and out of town centers.

Well, Europe is sometimes so diverse it's annoying. And the economic disparity ...

Swedish NPR had to explain the word "exoplanet" when talking about the new satellite launch for (exo)planet search. I got pissed.

?? Try not throwing them in nature in the first place. Also, a reasonable country does not dump your trash in a landfill.

Then they comment that "official mpg stats are all lies", and you go

"mmh sure, but have you consid ... nevermind"

A bit more here, now it's time to change them. I have a short commute and we have winters. I still hit the stated mpg of my Toyota. On the car computer my average is even better, but then it doesn't record starts, I think.
