One of my favorite comments I've received was "you're really good at talking about the patriarchy without talking about the patriarchy," on a post about dividing tasks in marriage. I didn't use terms like "emotional labor", "sexism", or, as noted, "patriarchy". This typically involves slightly longer phrasing, but it's not too bad; that post has "not everyone wants to be or will be in a male-female couple" instead of bringing in "heteronormative". Similarly, a version of the post I wrote about tickling kids that used "consent" or "rape culture" would have been worse.
There are two main ways people bounce off terms:
Choux pastry is what makes eclairs, cream puffs, and profiteroles. It's traditionally made from flour, butter, water, salt, and eggs. Using vegan butter in place of butter is not a problem, but the eggs are fundamental to the recipe. They not only provide leavening by releasing their water as steam, but they bind the dough together.
Looking online, I found various recipes that attempts to make vegan Choux pastry, but reading through them many are essentially making an enriched bread. Some go a bit farther, trying to figure out the role of eggs in choux and substitute for them, but none work very well.
I was interested in potentially using aquafaba to substitute for the eggs, but while I could make things that went into the oven very puffy, they didn't set.
Technically, it's just under:
1 - (1 - 1/1,000,000)^2 = ~2/1,000,001This is quite close! Approximating
1 - (1-p)^2as
p*2was only off by 0.00005%.
On the other hand, say you roll a die twice looking for a 1:
1 - (1 - 1/6)^2 = ~31%The approximation would have given:
1/6 * 2 = ~33%Which is off by 8%. And if we flip a coin looking for a tails:
1/2 * 2 = 100%Which is clearly wrong since you could get heads twice in a row.
It seems like this shortcut is better for small probabilities; why?
I'm helping my dad migrate some code to a new server. It was at
220.127.116.11 for years, but ten days ago he changed
his DNS settings to point to
looks good to me:
$ dig notes.billingadvantage.com notes.billingadvantage.com. 1800 IN A 18.104.22.168The TTL is 1800s, or 30min, which agrees with dns.google. I expected everyone would be moved over within a couple hours, but a week later the old server is still receiving traffic nearly as much as the new:
This blind trust that proponents place in "K" is best illustrated by their slogan, "Where We Go One We Go All" (#WWG1WGA). Originating in the once-marginal "K=N" faction, it represents the idea that individuals, once united, cannot be divided. Despite the undeniable rhetorical appeal, however, its protection is illusory and such division remains possible by resourceful and determined attackers.
