Hey thermal mechanics and material science nerds.

I have a question for you.

I've got a sphere of beeswax, 3mm radius.

I want to heat it up in my hands.

What is the most efficient technique?

Let's not blow up my mentions, considering what pressure and stretching and stuff do, then let me know.


There's the Christian notion of "born into sin."

I think this has been reworked into the secular humanist notion of "born into ignorance." The universe - and humanities interactions with it and itself - are too complex to be innately comprehensible.


The issue is that one can leave the sin one's born into through action, and so it is presumed one can leave the ignorance through action to.

However I think we are born into ignorance and can never leave it in a meaningful way. 1/n

6) If we didn't, it doesn't matter any more
7) If it does, we need to move on
8) If we can't, we are you

like: free buses, but they're free because the university pays for them, and the university pays for them because they let researchers access the campus more easily.

The fight is necessary, but don't become the fight, don't limit your horizon to winning or losing.

if you only listen to convenient marginalised voices, and not the ones that destabilise and upset the comfortable world you have orbiting around yourself, than you're not really listening at all.
