The Metabolic Trap Shines During the Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS at Stanford - Health Rising
Davis once again noted that hypotheses often turn out to be are wrong. It’s possible that the trap could become another in a long stream of, as Robert Phair said, paraphrasing the great British biologist Thomas Huxley, “beautiful theories destroyed by ugly facts.” The only way to determine if the metabolic trap is causing ME/CFS is to forge ahead.

Bourdain on People
I quickly came to understand that there are two types of people in this world: There are the type of people who are going to live up to what they said they were going to do yesterday, and then there are people who are full of shit. And that’s all you really need to know.

Not Voting Doubles the Value of Someone Else’s Vote
In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.

El Goonish Shive - EGS:NP - assorted-18a-012
Having been the sober person at a few parties full of not very responsible drinking, however, I know that's not the reality. I've also read about alcohol, its effects, and how a lot of what people experience at parties is more placebo than chemical.

Design Thinking Is Fundamentally Conservative and Preserves the Status Quo
> "Moreover, because the designer herself generates the tacit understandings she uses by connecting empathetically with potential users — the “empathize” mode — whatever needs of product users and communities she perceives are refracted through her personal experience and priorities. As any ethnographer worth her salt will admit, this subjectivity is inevitable, and that is why disciplines that rely on empathetic engagement for data collection stress the importance of paying attention to the researcher’s identity and political positioning. The design thinking method does not stipulate rigorous attention to positionality, however. This omission signals that the designer, as creative visionary, is somehow suspended above the fray of bias, blind spots, and political pressure."
