I rather try a 1000 times and prove to myself, that i'm wrong, then not to have tried to figure 'it' out at all. As finding a way 'it' doesn't work, at least gets rid of a wrong answer. If i try all the options, i'll eventually get the right one! it's the only one that's left 😉
The combination of Ohm's law and Joule's law gives us 12 formulas where 2 of the 4 variables are known. This wheel is a handy tool and memory jogger.

#GeorgeCarlin i miss you, your reflections on life and human history (in the American context) are refreshing whenever and every time i (re)hear your thoughts.
I soo hope @elonmusk will eventually buy @twitter , because i wanna #shitpost @elonmusk at least once, and in my perception him being the owner of #twitter at the time, would be the best test regarding if what he's claimed about what he want's to do with it is actually true. 1/..

I have one of the best #shitposts in mind, that will hopefully boggle anyone's mind. But do not worry 😊 i'm actually fairly civil... 🥳🥳
curate it under the terms of the user agreement. But simply adapt or modify... is the enemy of free speech @elonmusk ... it should be a log of exactly what i said, not what twitter is allowed to make of it !! @Twitter legal dipshites !! 😡🤬😡😡

adapt, modify, !!??!! Really ?!? you gonna wanna put words in my mouth ?!? perhaps change that to 'translate'. And i would add 'curate' under the terms of the user agreement. (again, link the user agreement).

Human tendency to conform, especially when in large groups, is terrifying. Propaganda machines leverage this throughout human history. The way out is to think freely, detached from the divisive narratives of the day that masquerade as universal truths. This often feels lonely.

Plants may lack brains, but they have a nervous system, of sorts. And now, plant biologists have discovered that when a leaf gets eaten, it warns other leaves by using some of the same signals as animals, using their own kind of nervous system [read more: buff.ly/2MuekgD]
