Make More Mistakes!

The easiest mistakes to fix are the ones you've seen before. So, that means start making more mistakes or start learning about more mistakes in order to be able to fix more things faster.

Cheez-Its and PB&J

Random Question Time, Topic: Alcohol, Acids, Bases

Is alcohol an acid or base?

Is 0% alcohol mouthwash an acid or base?

Most toothpaste seems like a base.

Saliva is a base.

The stomach has acids.

So, at what point does the intestinal tube turn from base to acid?

Are bodily wastes neutral?

If not a paper litmus test, then what test do you use to test solids in order to determine if they are bases or acids.

Are there solid acids?

You just determine acids and bases mainly from electron ratios, right?

So, I guess that means you can manufacture any phase of bases and acids.

How about a structure that is both a base and acid?

Maybe attribute can change depending on how light shines on it, or the environmental temperature, near a magnetic field, or turned upside down?

Maybe it would be like the Plum pudding model that used to describe the electron/atoms/molecules?

Maybe you could make quantum effects at a larger, naked-eye level?

Imagine quantum alcohol, you might simultaneously be drinking it and not drinking it. Maybe the visible/tasteful quantum particles that you drink are tied to more "invisible" particles in the bottle. And, it is theoretically possible to have a bottle that would never finish. Though, the chances are close to infinitesimally small, there is still a chance. ;)

I think that was a full circle.

Topic: Making Food And Cleaning Dishes

I like to be done cleaning dishes before my last bite is finished.

How's that possible?

Well, after cooking the food, I wash any pots/pans/dishes that I'm not using to eat. So, that way all I have left to wash is a plate and utensil. When I'm just about done eating, I take a large last bite and wash the plate and utensil(s).

I believe this is a good level of efficiency; My time is used efficiently, multitasking whenever I can. An added benefit of doing the dishes before eating is that the food will cool down so I don't have to waste my time cooling it off myself, or burn my mouth when eating.

Some may say it is more efficient to use disposable dishware, and I'll agree that it is ever so slightly faster in time. But, it costs more, less eco-friendly, and fills the garbage can quicker which would require more trips/time to empty it.

Question: Urine Test (Urinalysis)

In order to help liquid waste flow from the bladder, is it better to drink cold water to contract the bladder to make it smaller? Or drink warm water to possibly loosen things up?

Oxygenated Water

Would oxygenated water benefit you any more than regular water?

I know there is already oxygen in there, but there could be more. Then again, I guess that would just bring us  to something like carbonated water. But, maybe without the carbon?

What about extra-hydrated water?

Topic: IQ Tests

Is there a [good] reason to take one?

If I score low, then I may feel bad.
If I score high, then I may be in a false sense of security/entitlement and possibly have a more profound ego.
If I score average, then okay... Do I need to know I'm average?

How does one's life improve after taking an IQ test. But, then again, maybe I just want to know for the sake of knowing. And not ever share it with anybody?

ps - If one scores low, then hopefully it would be used more as a motivating factor. Maybe.

It wasn't that the cat was too curious. It was that the cat was curious about the wrong thing.

Question: Space Shuttles

When space shuttles launch, the seem to be making a large arc (not going up straight). So, my first question was, why don't the space shuttles go straight up? Then, I thought, maybe it is going straight up... Maybe it is just us on Earth that is rotating away...

Do people actually use paper weights? Isn't gravity enough to keep papers down?

Question: Kitchen Counters

Is there a typical height of a kitchen counter? Is there an optimal height?

Just looked it up and apparently, yes, three feet is the standard height of kitchen counter. This is supposed to be a compromise between tall people and short people.

Topic: Shower

How to take a shower:
1. Wet.
2. Soap.
3. Rinse.

Each step should take, at most, about one minute. Thus, three minutes total.

Caveat: If you have long hair, then you can take longer.

I only eat a certain amount of food everyday... Everything that I can get my hands on.

Why don't recruiters say which company the open positions are for?

(Third-party) headhunters, aka recruiters, aka talent sourcers don't say which company they are recruiting for because that would allow the perspective employee to go around them and talk to the company directly. Then, the headhunter wouldn't get their (possible) bonus.

Pop-Tarts In Milk

Question: Music

If you don't listen to the radio or check social medias, then how do you know how popular artists and songs are?

Your Reach Is More Than You Think

A person an inch taller than another can reach up one and a half inches higher.

A person two inches taller than another can reach up three inches higher.

On average.

For purposes of this post, people's arm-spans are exactly the same as their height (I know it can vary a few inches).

So, when a person is 2 inches taller, they also have 2 inches to give to the length of their arms, approximately 1 inch would go to each arm (assuming that each person's torso is the same width).

Pyramid Scheme Of Helping

I want to start a pyramid scheme to help others. People I randomly help must help others and tell them to help others, recursively.

But, then again, you can't force anybody to do something they don't want to do. Though, they may just need to be reminded every now and then to think about others.

We Breathe Through Our Skin

It's an idea that I had a long time ago.

Many years ago I tested holding my breath in water and out of the water. And, I'm pretty sure that it was easier to hold my breathe out of the water.

Though, one possible reason could be that staying under the water requires more energy.


About 5-10 months ago I was talking about scuba and reminded that once you are in water, there is a lot more pressure all around you. Thus, it is harder to breath in a full breath. It may be harder to breath in, but it doesn't effect lung capacity.

Positive Negativity

In order to be positive all the time, one must also be negative all the time in order to compare things as not neutral. (Afternote: Just an idea, not the way I always think.)

If one were only positive all the time, then there wouldn't be a comparison of what was normal, thus being positive is now normal for that individual. In the end, they are just neutral all the time.

Is this why I consider myself neutral or realist? Because I don't always compare to other things I can't say that I'm always positive, but I can say that others say/think that I'm always positive.

Salt should only go on the outside of food items. That way, it can be tasted and still not too unhealthy.

Well, I guess, we (our society) does need preservatives in order to carry foods long distances, save money, produce more, and have less waste.

What is the most optimal food form?

Is the pill the most optimal food form? Something that is small and "easily" swallowed.

Or, is the most optimal food form something like mashed potatoes? They take up a lot of space, but they are easy to swallow also and more filling.

Or, should we be using our teeth more often? Quoting: "Use them or lose them"

Then, something like current-day fruits would be the most optimal form of food because they are filling, we are required to use teeth for the most part, and easy to swallow after chewing.

Another possible food form is something like cereal. It takes on the form of many pills lumped together. The cereal food form is just like the fruit food form except less easy to swallow after chewing. This would either cut up our digestive tract or make it stronger. I'm not sure yet.

Getting to the larger food forms would be the meat category of food. It is like the fruit form except that it requires more muscles to tear the meat into smaller pieces and a lot more chewing to consume it easily. This has the added benefit of making our heads a bit stronger.

But, completely different than all of the above is liquids. I guess, it is most related to the pill form in the way it is consumed (just swallowing). This benefit is that is quick for our quick/instant/now society, it is a little easier to consume than pills for everybody, and it is more filling so that we have better knowledge on when to stop consuming.

This everything liquid-form has already begun to take place. There is now vitamin water, vegetable juice, protein shakes, milkshakes, high-sugar carbonated drinks (soda/pop), injections, and in science you drink a substance that is absorbed in your body so that it helps doctors diagnose your symptoms.

ps - This post originally was just going to be the question, but it was fun creating and walking through these different scenarios made up on the spot.

Saturday, July 6, 2013


Overwhelm one of the senses to not think about another. Example, you can use visual stimuli to completely forget what you were thinking. Also, it is possible to think so hard that you forget what you were thinking about.


Why not?


Why are vegans against meat and products from animals? Plants are living things too, even though vegans may not see them living, the plants are still breathing, reproducing, and perhaps have feelings too.

Survival Of The Smartest Or Fittest?

Survival of the smartest or fittest?

1. Background
- The smartest may depend on fittest, or I guess smartest would be able to motivate themselves to get fit [enough]. Or, they would find a way that doesn't require to be fit.
- Fittest would be able to do things through brute force (maybe). They wouldn't be totally dumb. But, if there was a choice between doing something physically with their hands or another method, then hands would be their choice.

2. Getting Moving Food
- Smartest would have the know-how to create traps.
- Fittest would be able to chase down the pigs/food.

3. Safety
- Smartest would create borders or weapons
- Fittest would eventually just scare away other possible predators

Racist Jokes

"Many" people laugh at [some] racist jokes, but are they truly happier after hearing them? At least momentarily? But, eventually, I imagine any feelings would at least consciously go away. So, the best comedy should entertain as well as change people? For the better?

Beer Bottle Flutes

Drill some holes in the side of beer bottles and you have a more versatile musical instrument than just having a static amount of liquid in the bottle. It would be just like playing a flute or recorder.

Taking For Granted = Subliminal Assumptions

EVERYBODY assumes. It is how we function in life. 'Assuming' really shouldn't have a negative connotation (Re: "When you assume, you make an 'ass of u and me'"). Assumptions are just conclusions. Some are backed by more experience/knowledge than others. So, the solution to 'bad' assumptions is education and communication.

Quote: I'd Rather People Think I Think They're Dumb, Than Confirm It.

The title is just a shorter version for easy consumption. The following extended quote explains just a little more:

"I'd rather people think I think they're dumb, than to confirm I think they are."

This came up when I was trying to explain something. I either had to assume they didn't know something "basic", or ask them if they knew of the said something that was "common knowledge".

A way to combat this: http://xkcd.com/1053/

Question = Questions + Statements; Answer = 2 * Answer

Every time a question is asked, a statement is also being made. A lot of times, when a question is asked, it is actually another question that is really asked. And, another question (in addition) is always answered.

Think about it.

Quote: It's Not You, It's Your Brain

"You might pass 5,000 cars on your morning commute, and 4,999 of them might be perfect, polite drivers. But then you pass that one guy in the SUV who literally stuck his buttocks out of his side window and took a flying shit on your hood. When you get to work, are you going to talk about the 4,999 good drivers or the flying hood shitter? You're going to focus on the negative, because your brain is hardwired to devote more attention to the misery in life." - Cracked.com

Maybe we should start complementing the regular good every day, instead of taking it for granted.

Kumbaya roughly means "come by here"

Programming: Android: Java: Static in Classes

One can only access static variables and functions in another class without creating a new instance of the helper class; One can use ClassName.variable directly, if the variable is static.

Non-static variables and functions require an instantiation to access through; ClassName cn = new ClassName(); cn.variable;

Initial Commit

My other "random" blog was starting to get too standardized and too much traffic. So I'm starting over with some new goals in mind.

  • Mainly short posts, possibly many one-liners.
  • I want to write the many things I learn, that other people couldn't possibly find useful.
  • Things will not be explained on here. Thinking/searching may be required for readers and myself when I reread posts.
Things I post about may or may not be my main focus in my life at the moment. Though, many things should be relate to coding/programming because it is a big part of my life.
