GG - correction! Pelase change who to "what to believe", like verifiable facts, tests that can reproduced. Example: tensile or tension testing has a load gauge, you can measure the extension of a piece of metal multiple ways, typically a strain gauge which measures a change in legnth by a change in electrical resistance. It produces a stress - strain curve which can be reproduce time after time and the modulus of elasticity does nto change for the alloy at that specific temperature. Twin Trade Towers fell because the temperature changed a column buckled ( Euler Buckling I think) and the impact load took out the next set of columns. THe whole thing went down with one pancake load increasing as each stage failed - as designed and repeatable. Stupid way to limit collateral damage. Back to the subject.... I choose to follow Physics for which I understand in the basic Newtonian world and some higher level stuff. The solar flares and polar Vortex are tough. Polar Vortex is not so tough anymore; computational fluid dynamics and gas dynamics modeling is getting better. (once created a perfectly unstable. unpredictable vortex shedding machine.) The one thing I am looking to understand is how energy is transferred from one atom or molecule to another by elastic collision - the kinetic pin ball machine model does not do it for me. I have to spend some time on it. Sublimation of oxalic for Varroa treatment is very repeatable but how did the all that latent heat get transferred across the metal boundary to the OA? How does water evaporate at different ambient temperatures? Peel the onion layers - that's what it takes. Love how the bees control the dew point inside the hive - most times - a hypothesis with some supporting data.
Cute answer - socialist / capitalist - a dream. So I propose a new concept Contrarians! A group of people who do not agree with socialist or capitalist in total. They are color blind who worry about the whole world. People who are self motivated, think, continue to learn, solve problems and seek rewards,......and share. There are some and some are even very rich in money equivalents.
