This is why the Apollo program used seperate engines to land and take off. The lander engine kicks up a fucktoy of dust (or could hit a rock) and end up non-functional as a result. So you use a different engine to take off again, with a couple of backup system to get the two disconnected (the final "system" being and axe).

I just say "one sixty five", and so do most people in the Netherlands (most use different numbers though)

When you drop them at the same time, it doesn't matter though.

Ah but the earth doesn't just attract the ball or feather. The bowling ball attracts the earth as well, and since it has more mass, it will pull the earth towards it faster than the feather.

But if you drop them at the same time, that's moot.

Wasn't Narsissus aromantic, right up the point of being punished? Although I have to admit I'm not super up to date on the myths finer details.

I would, but there are no Neanderthals from 30k years ago. Cro magnon was basically a modern human, with a modern human skull shape (at least, to me, who knows very little about skulls)

While we may have a currently highest number that doesn’t mean it IS the highest possible

I would argue you can only be gay if you're alive, so you only need to compare living people, the theoretical maximum doesn't matter, only the actual maximum of a finite number.

nor that there is exactly one of them.

Agreed. It might be a shared gold medal.

They're not even all the same technique...

How is a spectrum supposed to not have a total ordering?

I'm pretty sure a spectrum is always totally ordered. You can't say "this point on the spectrum holds no relation to that point", because then it's not a spectrum.

There are demonstrably not infinite humans alive at the same time though.

Hiding read posts? (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 7 months ago by [email protected] to c/boostforlemmy

There are a whole bunch of options to mark posts as read, but as of yet, I can't seem to find an option to actually hide to posts.

Am I missing something, or does marking a post just grey it out?
