The notion of research and invention and reasoning being used as a way of religious worship is quite fascinating to me. I sort of figured something like the Da’at Yichud must be the twist in this game but the philosophy itself is quite uniquely beautiful to me.
Spoilers for the game in the video.
Case closed. [@neiltyson]
I SAID THE SAME THING WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE QUESTION. I WAS LIKE 7 OR 8
Europe Merde Oui!
Why don’t scientists go into law? Why don’t we have more pediatricians in plumbing? Let’s get some landscapers working on hybrid cars
People who study law working in professions that pass laws?!?!?! Shocking.
I swear to God this guy is an idiot. How can a person so smart be so dumb? Seriously.
Not to mention he is flat out wrong. There are a considerable number of doctors, academics, and other professions in congress but he chooses to ignore that as it invalidates his “point”. Yes most congressmen are lawyers and businessmen, but not all.
WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL IS THIS POST?
People… Neil Tyson is many things but an idiot is not one of them. I don’t know the context of the interview but I will wager he is referring to the chronic scientific illiteracy that is endemic in the US congress and political scene. You know, those guys who 10 years ago had a board of scientists and engineers tasket with giving objective input on matters of science to the policy bureaus… and who cut the funding from that board so that for the past 10 years there is little scientific authority in the US decision making process.
Because in the USA, being in line with your party’s position and with your constituents’ religious ideology is more important than having some actual peer-reviewed facts backing up your laws.
It’s the reason why everything is going so poorly. There are studies everywhere describing solutions to gun violence, the vaccine problem (and how they 100% do NOT cause autism ffs), climate change and a million other matters. And where other nations take these into consideration the US is like “nah, lobbyists are right”
I will end this by mentioning that the futurists of the early 20th century (Tesla, Wells, etc) saw the hopeful, utopic future as being under the leadership of scientifically literate specialists.
Does anyone here get the European equivalent of those “America fuck yeah” moments?
Because it occurs to me just how much I like the old world with its many languages and cultures and history
Do you take requests? If you do, and you have time, and you feel like it, I would love to see Mairon/Sauron doing smith work or being an inventor... I love your art so much!
Thanks for your message!!
He looks good in apron. XD
For a sec I thought he was wearing a cute lolita dress and I was thinking “Uwaa, kawaii smithing Mairon~” UwU

|| HARTEUS’ 4000 FOLLOWER PRINT GIVEAWAY
i’ve finally reached the beautiful number of 4000, 4000 of you amazing human beings! i never would have imagined i’d get this far, and to celebrate i’m holding yet another giveaway. though this time it’s a bit different. i will select three winners, generated randomly and send all of them the four prints featured above. the first winner will also recieve a full painting comission in the same style as featured in the prints.
- must be following me.
- likes and reblogs count, you may reblog multiple times but i’m not sure if multiple reblogs show in the notes?
- you gotta have your askbox open in case you win, and answer my message within three days.
- you have to be comfortable with giving me your adress since i’ll send physical copies to you. (i’ll ship worldwide!)
- ENDS THE 22nd of AUGUST
|| ABOUT THE PRINTS
i have not printed them out yet, but i will make sure to have them in the highest quality possible, all of them about the size of an A4. i’ll probably post more updates about this during the giveaway. i suspect they will be of a thicker, matted paper type and not a shiny one. i will secure the packages the best i can before sending them, but i won’t be responsible if they would somehow get damaged during the shipping.
i’ll send them out as soon as i’ve got everyone’s adress, which shouldn’t be long after the ending of the giveaway. the first winner will also recieve a full painting comission, but that picture will only be sent through e-mail.
if you got any questions don’t hesitate to send me an ask! GOOD LUCK!
three days away :——)))))
