And on this seventh eve, I'm exhausted and have

a pretty good selection for you

Water can become a different state liquid at just the right temperature

There is all kinds of strange stuff out there.
This ‘phase transition’ in water was first proposed 30 years ago in a study by researchers from Boston University. Because the transition has been predicted to occur at supercooled conditions, however, confirming its existence has been a challenge. That’s because at these low temperatures, water really does not want to be a liquid, instead it wants to rapidly become ice. Because of its hidden status, much is still unknown about this liquid-liquid phase transition, unlike about everyday examples of phase transitions in water between a solid or vapour phase and a liquid phase.

Already it's the sixth eve,

but I still have put some time into data gathering

I knew there were arguments about whether the Big Bang Theory was correct,

I had not known that a lot of the data sent back by the Hubble and James Webb imagery was throwing a seriously big wrench into the works.

What the hell is wrong at this college?

There have been a number of cases of Jews being messed with by the Enlightened Ones and getting away with it, which indicates the clowns running the school either sympathize with the Jew haters, or are too cowardly to say or do anything about it.

From the people who insist anyone else is a hater.
Two Jewish students at the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz say they were booted from a support group for sexual assault victims and harassed by members of the group due to their Jewish identity, according to a complaint filed with the Education Department.

One of the victims, student Cassandra Blotner, says members of the support group threatened to spit on her in public for proudly being Jewish, while others called her a "dumb bitch" who supports "mass genocide" due to her support for Israel. The complaint alleges the university was "fully aware of the situation," yet did nothing to protect the students from the anti-Semitic hate campaign.

A lot of 'well-meaning' people are doing huge harm,

and I find myself wondering if they even care?

This is about the current 'How and why is monkeypox spreading?' bullshit that requires ignoring the factor of promiscuous homosexual men.  Because, just like when they pretended HIV/AIDS 'is a disease of EVERYONE!', they're avoiding dealing with a big factor because someone will have upset feelings if you bring it up.

This post got started by reading this post(warning, the picture at the start is horrible).  The poor bastard with part of his face being eaten has an idiot history:
Turns out that he was HIV-positive and didn't know, plus was infected with advanced syphilis -- also a surprise to him. He told doctors he had never been tested for a sexually transmitted infection. There he was, celebrating diversity like a champ, and now his nose is partially rotted off. Heaven knows who he passed along HIV, syphilis, and monkeypox to along the way.

Meanwhile, New Orleans is so far going ahead with its big Labor Day weekend Southern Decadence festival, an LGBT event that draws 275,000 to the French Quarter for six days of sex, dancing, and debauchery. Decadence was cancelled the past two years because of Covid, but not over monkeypox, though it is certain to be a superspreader event.

Much like various other festivals that were followed by a bunch of people testing positive.  But saying "For God's sake, people, be CAREFUL!" will get you called a homophobe and hater.  Because warning people that screwing with anyone who'll hold still long enough, especially when you're a member of a high-risk group, is dangerous means you hate people and want them to die.

Guy I used to work with was gay, in a committed thing with someone, and still, when the gay rodeo or whatever came around, there they went.  He knew it was dangerous, but he was diabetic, and had decided he'd probably die early anyway so...  I've wondered how many years that may have taken off his life.  Damn shame, he was good at what he did and cared more about getting some parts of the job done more than the upper levels did.

So the question- again- is 'How many lives are you willing to damage/sacrifice in the name of not upsetting someone?'  The answer is an awful lot.
