@cerebrate regarding eldraeverse.com/2019/04/04/hea , which I happened to be re-reading today:

Got to have something to store your cannon on, after all.

people complain a lot on here about discord as a replacement for a good project wiki

but may i also pitch to you

facebook groups as a replacement for a good website

holy shit. seriously, i'm not going to make an account on that trash fire just so i can look at your informational videos, can you host your informational videos on a site that doesn't require an account please

This is what a mathematician sees when you number your list with lower-case Roman numerals. Sadly 4 and 6 clash, owing to commutativity.

Question for Henry Georgists. If someone creates their own land (reclamation, seasteading, whatever) is that exempt from the tax? Since its "unimproved value" is nil (or at least de minimis).

And is this retroactive? The Fens? The Netherlands?

(x-post from the birb site. Yeah, I'm still not set up to do that automagically. Sue me.)

New article on my website: jttlov.no-ip.org/writings/mone The Structure of Moneys — why

Intuitive way to understand the intermediate axis theorem: angular momentum is Iω but K.E. is ½Iω²; momentum is conserved but K.E. can dissipate; thus only max & min I are in equilibrium, and only max I (i.e. min K.E.) is long-term stable.

(This is not really rigorous, as it doesn't prove there aren't other stationary points of Iω̂, but it's close enough & helps to remember which axis is the stable one.)
