All my cats are vegan
Have they died yet
That isnt good
They gonna die
There was that lady who said her dog was vegan
And when they tested it it went straight for the meat
I'm not dumb
Are you sure
I know cats are carnivores
Then why not give them meat
They don't ethically think it's okay
Give them meat soup
God I want KFC gravy
I just want some KFC chicken
I don't like bones
This is how angular resolution works physically in the eye.
Cameras work the same way.
The cones of the retina is a zoom in of the eye. If the angular size of the target is not enough to activate more than a single cones/sensor the object is unresolvable.
There are 3 ways to decrease angular separation.
1. Move the two separate targets further or closer together.
2.Increase the distance.
3. Change the angle of view.
First here is a demonstration of how angle of view changes the angular separation of 2 targets. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/379214321907007488/459806914331541504/unknown.png
For example in this image, as the stop sign's angular size shrinks from distance or angle, the image that prjected onto the retina also shrinks. Eventually it will reach such as small size the eye can not physically detect the light. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/379214321907007488/459808085436006410/refraction_cornea.png
A geometric analogy would be closing a pair of scissors. When the scissor tips are closer together than the spacing between the rods and cones of the eye then you get to see the target. The point where the tips cross from too close to normal vision is the angular resolution.
When the angle of view becomes to much it pretty much goes parallel, but you lose sight of the ground before that. It's the same on the globe too but even worse because the angle of view is increasing quicker because of the curving away of the ball surface.
These next images show someone how the angle stays the same but the area that you are actually observing increases. You can see the 5th image how the bottom of a building would disappear.
They are using this stuff for self-driving cars. To automate the driving they have to turn the perspective view into an orthographic top down view.
The soure of that image.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/0/20937803
Even though the title is BS. No one sees further. You ONLY capture more light.
This is how they build telescopes, to capture light.
Large telescope are reflectors. The larger convex lens gets the more distortion. So they made this. It all works the same generally speaking. A telescope will only help so much. It depends on the light collecting ability that is determined by the diameter of the lens. Some of these aren't built yet...
They are making the lens bigger not building 15 mile long telescopes.
Here is a demonstration of angular resultion effects with an eye charts 1D is distance from chart 2D is 2 time the distance etc...
Optical and Geographical Slant.

"As he looks downward toward his feet the slant approaches zero, as he looks upward the slant increases, as the center of ckesr vision approaches the horizon the slant becomes maximal, and at the horizon itself the land ceases to be a surface and becomes an edge."
Next we have what is called Spatial Disorientation & Visual Illusions which includes our visible horizon. Sometimes called the offing, this apparent line is where the sky meets the ground and is being perceived as an edge because of perspective due geographical slant and other optical phenomena.

Jesus fucking Christ
Dump of dumps
Remember to give citations at least
So much text
So much scrolling
Jesus wept is a good quote
Citations are there
I can post that on people's cringe compilations
@[Ex-Mitch] 21.2.19 It’s really great to see you. Are you on a time limit?
Don't feel like speaking right now.
I'm having connection issues
I'm in the chat
It's too late for me to contribute properly
I have my own work to do
The 24/7 FE Discord folks are a bunch of assholes.
Nothing new there
Take care everyone
Got a call
gave you the undecided (on the fence role), you can assign yourself roles in <#484538051415113748>
Ok thanks 😀
Morning all =)
Do they know how to do that already and are just looking for a cost cutting thing?
Or do they really think that a couple teams will make the breakthrough? $1 mill is nothing compared to the budgets of some experiments
Probably a bit of both
Often offering up a bit of money can help kick start the development of what they need
NASA’s budget is fairly limited so if they can avoid footing the bill for what seems to be a brand new chemical process, I can’t say I blame them
Its a scam
K man whatever you say
U believe and defend all government propaganda
Even if it doesn’t get used to go to mars, a vast number of technologies nasa helped develop end up being used in places on earth that we would never expect
Not my fault u r gullible
If you do a bit of googling around you’ll find a gigantic list of technologies that they helped develop
And who makes the money
The industries that use their new technology to make new products make the money
Doesnt mean they r using it in space
They cant goto space members
They lost that tech member
What about the reflector on the moon?
Surely that proves that we've been up there? You can bounce a laser off of it
Nobody says we lost the tech to go to space
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASA_spinoff_technologies even if they didn’t go to space, there’s a ton of things there that directly impact everyday life
The clue is that it's the first four words of the title
Don’t have data to watch it, what does it say?
They say it all the time
Watch the article i linked
They cant goto the moon or deep spaces
Well they’re not wrong at the moment
I don’t see any flight worthy Saturn Vs
Its a scam
The biggest scam ever
A scam that produces a vast list of useful technologies for everyone? 🤔
Who cares about their motive
Nasa is Mostly an advertising company
Everyone does their job for money
They care about money. That's why they use space to promote
Well you’re technically not wrong
Get a bunch of money to build a bunch of shit because people want to go to space and they build something that only we can use here and sell here and they sell it and make money and patent it all
Crowd sourcing it all. Theives
Ok man you clearly don’t want to listen to me so carry on believing what you want
Just curious as to why nasa are so evil but all the other space agencies never get mentioned
Its not a belief
Nasa is a propagandizing advertisement company
...that produces huge amounts of valuable technology?
The feel good agency
I think the tech benefits are good even if space isn't real
That’s exactly my point
Good for them especially
Even if it turned out all the space stuff is bs you’d still get huge amounts of life changing technology from them
I mean you sent that picture of the tinfoil blanket thing right?
Memory foam is legit and that's NASA
NASA steals others ppls ideas
It would be invented regardless
When did they do that?
Not without the funding NASA has
Can you give specifics?
U think NASA creates these things? Its just other ppls ideas
I mean. NASA hires people to make things.
Having an idea and developing it into a viable technology are very different things
>under contract from nasa
Hired by NASA
Paid by NASA
Under the guise of fake space
Irrelevant, it was still invented as a result of nasa
Therefore it’s considered a technology developed by nasa
Bruh I can still use a cool pillow idc if it's under a guise
Why would they make it anyway
Like if space wasn't real
It was invented for high G while going into space right? A niche use
They initially developed LIDAR for automated docking of fake spacecraft in fake space, but now that same technology is used for LASIK surgeries
Who cares why they developed it, it’s fantastically useful in unforeseen places
I don't know I just can't link in my head why they would spend money developing these niche things and only sending a few to market in unrelated fields
Like if NASA was commercial tech company surely they'd be like Apple or Amazon trying to sell everything they make for a profit
If they are so obsessed with money why license tech for other companies to sell
Instead theyre constantly making their patents public domain so anyone can use them for free
Doesn’t seem good for business to me
I mean Tesla gets similar finding from the US government and yet they still sell everything they can
No one accuses them of being money hungry
JAXA gets 2 billion dollars a year from the Japanese government, I don’t see anyone accusing them of being a scam
(I mean I will hate Tesla and Musk but only because I'm a disgusting socialist)
I don't mind Tesla but I find musk has ego problems
ESA gets almost €6 billion a year, no one calls them a scam
Musk seems to be going off the rails a tad recently
Tesla is funding battery technology so that's a green light from me
Tesla themselves are great
I’ve driven one, it is absolutely sublime
I think musk needs to see a psychologist
He needs some venting
Nah Musk smoked the big weed he's cool again now
I think he needs to hire someone to take care of Tesla for him like he did with SpaceX and just take a break
The BIG weed
Yeah musk needs to hire a series of groups for management and then go and play space man elsewhere
I admire how dedicated he is but it’s not sustainable
I think he would be better funding things that need it badly like biomedical tech
He needs to treat his workers way better
He abuses his cult of personality to overwork them
60 hour intense work weeks
I think it boils down to the fact that he expects them to be as single minded to Tesla as he is
Which is not a great idea
Iirc he literally slept in the factory during the model 3 production hell
That's not any way to live
We’re basically watching the fallout from living like that right now
I reckon he uses a lot of stimulants to stay productive that long
Might explain his behaviour too
I feel really bad for the guy
He’s had some really rough marriages
Apparently he lost a kid and didn’t take it very well
I wouldn't say I feel bad for him, (apart from the kid thing of course) but I do hope he gets out of this weird place.
After going through all that, doubling down on your work doesn’t really seem unreasonable idk
He’s done all the heavy lifting with Tesla and SpaceX, he just needs to take a step back from it all
He needs to treat his workers better
And maybe apologise for calling the person who saved the kids a pedo
Instead of doubling down on it 😂
Apparently the guy has lawyered up though so that’s good to hear
Should be an open and shut case

Oh dang I guess abortion is destroyed now
Too bad it's legal in most of the civilised world
I’m low on data can I get a tldr?
No Gold, it's destroyed, gone, kaput.
No more boar shins
I'd also like a tldr
Cause I'm watching Dave Chappelle clips and don't really want to watch anything with a trigger warning
Take one for the team nat
Story from a Gyno, describing the process of a 22 week abortion. Uses the word baby instead of fetus.
Tells another story about how his 6 year old daughter died, he then performed an abortion and found he couldn't it anymore. He saw someone's son or daughter instead of the fetus.
Overall, not really presenting any facts for my big logical brain to eat up, but the story was interesting and kinda moving. Still heavily baised. Not really presenting an argument beyond the emotive.
I thought, well that sucks and I'm sorry. But you've just said a non medical personal opinion wrapped in a sad story.
Also not as good as Dave Chappelle
Yeah it’s a perfectly valid reason for him not to perform them
Nothing about outright banning it though
I mean if that was intergrated with some hard facts it'd work for me and might be convincing, but the lack of that is obvious
It's like 60% of the way to being a good argument
But that's mainly because I prefer stories to hard facts alone
At this stage, it should be because the mothers life is at risk.
Isn’t it already banned in the late stages pretty much anywhere anyway?
