which is a perfectly reasonable thing to do, frankly. If somebody pulled that on me, I would stop at nothing to see that person dead.

A bridge is more difficult to arrange because of the length of the span. Each hung floor is relatively small. The support column and its subsidiaries only need to handle the flexion of a weather in a manner already common for other towers. It's not a special design in anyway, just sort of self aggrandizing and ugly.

It's not going to collapse, the floors are hung from a central column which is more or less centered through the floors. What it will have is the same maintenance schedule as a major bridge.

The tower floors are most likely hung rather than held--so each floor will be a cantilevered off of a super massive concrete and steel support column. Imagine that behind the facade (which tricks you into thinking the floors are solid and resting on each other) there is instead a little suspension bridge, and the floors are all hung.

It's not at all even slightly creative, and it's not even that difficult to accomplish, architects cantilever shit all the time. It's a practically a fetish for architects now.

Women as a group DO have lower representation in high IQ percentiles. They also have lower representation in low IQ percentiles--the standard deviation of IQ for men and women are not the same, just the average.

I may never recover. My worldview has been shattered, and my sense of reality weakened. I am now a lesser man.

the isreali's are not the same thing as the jewish diaspora, so make of that what you will. They're not even the same branch of judaism have the time, since the Isreali's are majority Sephardic rather than Ashkenazi. Different ethnicity, different denomination, different culture and different government.

Pretty sure the Blackfoot just call the Cree "Elitist Assholes" where I'm from haha. There is a Dene exclave by Calgary called the Tsuut'ina that the surrounding blackfoot called Sarcee for the longest time which is their own little racist moniker because the two groups have been at odds since basically the dawn of time.

very little turkic blood, either. Genetic testing in Anatolia shows that turks max out at about 20% turkic genetics. They're mostly native anatolian, and greek. Who knew.

That's the problem with accepting emotional rationale for your ethics--somebody can always claim a greater emotional cause. It generates a moral arms race that shifts the ideology further and further to the fringe. Most left thinkers don't have a concrete set of moral stances--just "Suffering is bad, and we should prevent suffering wherever we can". Well, suffering is unfortunately not objective and thus the goalposts move themselves.

Tell my hungry Toddlerthat breakfast can be skipped, then.

And the prep time is definitely not passive. I soak beans, yes, but also chop and clean vegetables, caramelize onions, make doughs, wash rice and barley etc.

I don't need to clean meat very much or remove the silverskin, because my wife is a vegetarian, but that is also part of prep and it's not passive.

Traditional meals, like this, or this, or this all require active prep and involvement.

You know why I do it? Because this type of food, eaten with my family, is part of inculturation and education as well as binding the family together.

Here's a really tasty cookie recipe, so you can have something nice for yourself. Merry Christmas.

I am a man, I work full time. I also feed the family because my wife's mother is a fucking harridan and she never learned to cook like I can--it makes me happy to feed my family, so she baby-wrangles and I cook.

Do you have any good recommendations for salmon and wine? I keep screwing that one up.

Cooking an hour a day? Clearly you've never cooked full meals before. I spend 4-5 hours a day in the kitchen to do these things:

Make breakfast (30 minutes)

Make bread (30 minutes)

Prep for Supper (30 minutes, 1 hour for more difficult meals)

Make lunch (30 minutes)

Make Supper (1 hour, for simpler meals. Traditional meals take more time, 2-3 hours)

Manage the ferments (20 minutes)

Clean (30 minutes)

That doesn't include time spent getting and organizing the groceries. Note that I don't have the time necessary to make proper traditional meals like I would like, just simple things. So Soups, Casseroles, Roasts and so on. Prep includes things like homemade broths and stocks for those soups. For the traditional meals, double all the times.

I lack context to make sense of this article.

Edit: further research; "Her decision is based on a constitutional practice that says a prime minister should resign if a party leaves the governing coalition."

The Greens threw a hissy fit, because dirty evil conservatives presented an alternative budget that they would have needed to work within and abandoned their coalition rather than cooperate like little bitches. This obligated the prime minister to resign.

I hate reading that shit in German. I make a specific point of only ever writing in the old way.
