wildcat2030:

Here is the current set of commandments through the eyes of science, in the form of objective, natural theories that should be believed:

1. Conservation theory: Energy and mass may be neither created nor destroyed but may be interconverted. Thus, creation and final destruction are not relevant.

Conversion: E = MC2

Annihilation: e- + e+ → E

2. Entropy theory: Entropy increases spontaneously. Nature is being dissipated. Improvements, syntheses, organization, and growth require energy at the expense of the environment.

3. Quantum theory: Activity is the product of energy and time.

h = Et

4. Radiation theory: Disintegration of mass is a first-order reaction. Fission applies mostly to large atoms, while fusion applies mostly to small atoms.

5. Particle theory: Particles with mass (such as electrons, protons, and neutrons) give rise to atoms (such as hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon), which give rise to molecules (such as water, quartz, and DNA), which give rise to chemical systems (such as minerals, plants, and animals), which give rise to the universe of objects (such as planets, stars, and galaxies).

6. Evolution theory: Combinations of the kinetic molecular theory, the chirality principle, and the laws of genetics lead to life and the development of species with both inheritance and variation, due to heredity and mutation.

7. Relativity theory: The notion of space-time (simultaneous, consecutive, and complementary events) is defined from the perspective of the observer.

8. Psychological theory: Respect for nature, especially for life, is mandated.

9. Behavior theory: There is satisfaction to be had in helping others toward happiness, which is usually reciprocal in bringing happiness in return. Personal immortality is achieved by the views of others.

10. Ethical theory: For a worthwhile existence, we must strive to maximize freedom with responsibility and find fulfillment with peace and love.

Yep.

A little update

ayraethazeigen:

You deserve a little update since I haven’t posted on Tumblr in a long time.

I’m now a Windows 8.1 user, after reluctantly moving away from Windows 7, which I was previously a long-time user of. I have to say, I’m impressed with what they’ve done, although it does look a little bit silly on my computer. It’s much better suited on touchscreen laptops and tablets.

I’ve been learning German on Duolingo for over a year. Duolingo is the best online language service in my opinion and you should use it right away.

I’ve begun reading Lord of the Rings after being ranted at for not already having done so. The first chapter kinda saved my bacon at uni as well - funny story, maybe later.

The driveway is being done so we can park more cars. I can hear the builders from here - what a racket they’re making.

I’ve begun a series of Downfall parodies entitled “Hitler’s Hit Markers” in which a pro-gamer Hitler obsesses over the in-game hit markers in Half-Reich 2, which manifest themselves in the material world. Watch it on YouTube.

And finally, I gotten around to reorganising my blogs:
main one, Ayraethazide, is for science posts
this one, Ayraethazeigen, is my personal diary
a new one, Ayraethazone, is for gaming posts
Ayréthazide is still my French blog
Ayräthaßeid is my new German blog.

Enjoy!

thenewenlightenmentage

dimethylsulfoxide:

Acetaldehyde C2H4O

  • Appearance: Colorless liquid
  • Molar Mass: 44.05 g/mol
  • Density: 0.784 g/cm(at 20°C)
  • Melting Point: -123.37°C
  • Boiling Point: 20.2°C 
  • pKa: 13.57

Acetaldehyde is one of the most important aldehydes, occuring in coffee and bread. It’s more well known as being the metabolite of ethanol by alcohol dehydrogenase, thought to be the main cause of hangovers. It undergoes keto-enol tautomerism, but only a small fraction of acetaldehyde is in the enol tautomer. Acetaldehyde used to be a precursor to acetic acid, however now it’s more important as a precursor to pyridine derivatives like pentaerthritol. It’s toxic when applied for extended periods, is an irritant on the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes, and is a possible carcinogen. It’s found smoke from cannabis and tobacco.

Done.
Today, I finish this year’s examinations with an overall optimistic feeling at a first approximation. I find this somewhat difficult to type because I don’t want to think about the exams anymore, and also because my wrist is tired from five half-hour essays.
Now that exams are over, it’s time to return to other things like maintaining this blog. It seems to me that my “personal” blog (that is, this one) has become swamped with science sheets from over the past year - this year I made 80 of these. Some organisation is in order, here, I think.
Secondly, although all examinations are done for the year, not all tests are. In a few days’ time, I have my first crack at the driving test. So here goes. :)
I’ll probably spend my last bit of time in Cambridge beginning to revive some of the old stuff I’ve dabbled in - this blog, the Chlorophynagogue, the novel, and so on. That’ll carry on properly once I’m home.
Keeping a plastic mind receptive to new learning is a year-round thing. Just because there’s no learning to do doesn’t mean there’s no learning to be done. Duolingo has been my bringer of such “mental plasticity” where I get tired of thermodynamics, cell assays, or revision, and will continue to over summer. Yeah - when you get tired of learning, why not take break and learn more? Somehow that makes sense.
All this year, I’ve violated my own pledge to devote at least a little bit of ‘me’ time. Actually, across a whole year, about half of that year belongs to me. It’s all in a single block called the long vacation.
A long vacation. Something to look forward to, but it’s so easy to get bored with so much time! Those projects above, and perhaps some other I’ll dare to try, will occupy me once I get back home.
But for now, while I’m still in Cambridge, I’ll prepare for the next thing, and take it easy all the while.
And a visit to Forbidden Planet and some sushi is in order.

Done.
