link Englishfedilink 11 days ago13·arrow-up I can accept that. There’s still no excuse for not having a ecology defense wing for nature lovers in the military who can be trusted to safely build fire lines, manage controlled burns, etc.

link Englishfedilink 6·arrow-up 1 month agoedit-2 Not quite. The wording “equivalence classes of … with respect to the relation R: aRb <==> lim( a_n - b_n) as n->inf” is key.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equivalence_class

loosely, an equivalence relation is a relation between things in a set that behaves the way we want an equal sign to

For an element in a set, a, the equivalence class of a is the set of all things in the larger set that are equivalent to a.

link Englishfedilink 1 month ago4·arrow-up No. 0.99 is 0.9+0.09. The proof I gave shows that 0.99999999999999999999999999999999999(…) is equal to 1.

link Englishfedilink 9·arrow-up 1 month agoedit-2 and wants to know why 0.999… = 1

\begin{align} 0.999… &= 9\cdot(0.1+0.01+0.001+… ) \ &= 9\cdot( 0.1^1 + 0.1^2 + 0.1^3 + … ) \ &= 9\cdot(\sum\limits_{k=1}^\infty ( \frac{1}{10^k} ) ) \ &= 9\cdot(\sum\limits_{k=0}^\infty ( \frac{1}{10^{(k+1)}}))\ &= 9\cdot(\sum\limits_{k=0}^\infty \frac{1}{10}*(\frac{1}{10^k})) \ &= \frac{9}{10}\cdot (\sum\limits_{k=0}^\infty (\frac{1}{10^k})) \ &= \frac{9}{10}\cdot \frac{1}{(1-(\frac{1}{10}))}\ &= \frac{9}{10}\cdot \frac{10}{9} = 1 \end{align}

The crux rests on a handy result on from calculus: the sum of an infinite geometric series looks likes s = 1/(1-r), when s = \sum\limits_k=0^inf r^k, and |r| < 1.

Sorry for the latex. When will hexbear render latex? This is a bit more readable:

link Englishfedilink 1 month ago2·arrow-up What are your top 2?

Idk. I make a different bean chili in the pressure cooker every week with whatever veggies I can get and whatever variety of beans we have on hand (which is usually a lot because I’m fortunate enough to live in a place with an absurd variety of plant agriculture). We vary the profile of the chili between a few indian-ish seasoning mixtures, this tasty african mixture with a ton of cumin and ras-al hanout, mexican-ish spices, and a few other blends. I use this to make a lot of burritos and tacos. Occasionally we’ll mix them into patties but that’s a huge chore. When my partner or I feel bored with these, we pick a place on a map and try to learn a recipe or two from there and then mix a chili with that dish’s flavors.

Aside from the chili, we’ve been making a lot of indian recipes:

this shit is amazing, but it’s a rare treat for me:

link Englishfedilink 4·arrow-up 1 month agoedit-2 Insects also have brains. Some arachnids have the capacity for fairly complex cognition (e.g., the portia spider’s hunting behaviors, jumping spiders communicate with eachother and in my opinion, engage in playful behavior).

The issue isn’t with your terminology, but rather with what it reveals about the imprecision/inconsistency of your reasoning on these matters.

If you’re going to draw a line at eating beings that can feel the harm done to them by eating, it might serve you to explore that boundary more thoroughly.

link Englishfedilink 6·arrow-up 1 month agoedit-2 yeah the common granulated sugar at the grocery store is usually bleached and mixed with bone char

the most fucked up thing about this in the USA is that they’re allowed to call the ingredient “natural carbon” when it’s used in a situation where it’s required to be listed

link Englishfedilink 1 month ago5·arrow-up So I see no substantial moral difference between eating plants or invertebrates, for example - neither can feel harm.

octopodes have capacity to feel pain and likely experience emotion

link Englishfedilink 7·arrow-up 1 month agoedit-2 it does get boring pretty quick when it’s just chickpeas and beans as the base of everything.

skill issue

There are so many fabaceae that can be prepared in such a variety of ways that this should appear constructively absurd.

Another way to see it: “it does get boring pretty quick when it’s just chicken and beef as the base of everything”
