meh, looks cool, but it's not what I want

I want a big high pressure stream of water. Something that last 5-6 seconds per shot, and 5-6 shots per tank would be acceptable. I'd use it for washing a car, watering plants from 10 meters away... and for summer fun maybe.

the most amazing thing is that they HAD to communicate.

-ok guys, we're gonna swim under it so the wave knocks him off. We all have to do it at the exact same time or it won't work.

Or that's what I want to believe happened, and you can't make me change my mind.

You aren't far off. Many scientists believe that whales are capable of that level of language, even going so far as to have "human-like" conversation in which they can not only refer to one another by name, but also discuss a 3rd party by name as well; i.e. "Hi Bill, seen Bob?" "Nope, sorry Frank... No clue where he is."

Those are orca and they hunt in packs. They absolutely communicate and cooperate and they are going to eat that seal.

glider sets mind-boggling altitude record of more than 76,000 feet

Image

they used a weather phenomenon in the andes mountains in which cold polar air hits the mountains and shoots up as high as 100,000 feet

they hope to top their record, hitting as high as 90,000 feet in the next few days

for reference, the record for the sr-71 was around 83,000 feet

That is really cool. At that altitude, practically the only air around them is the air lifting them.

It's interesting how people assume that medical issues are separate from psychological issues.

Harping on issues that people have but don't know how to change or don't feel empowered to change is just making them feel bad. It doesn't make them improve. It doesn't help them. It just means you're an uncouth individual. And that includes doctors.

If someone wants to try to provide solutions then that's different. It's a meaningful contribution. But pointing out that someone needs help when they don't feel they have the ability to help themself is kind of like yelling "Get a job, ya bum!" at a homeless person.

If the homeless person in question thinks they're better off being homeless and makes it a point to tell other people that they shouldn't get jobs...

Alternatively, "fat acceptance" is about as medically justifiable as being anti-vaxx.

The reason they started doing that is because of constant harassment.

If you constantly harass people rather than try to help them they become insular and resistant to help.

The problem is not fat acceptance. The problem is that people use bullying and claim that they expect it to help(which is a claim which doesn't even make sense, because harassment doesn't even work in theory, let alone practice-- No one who bullies another person about their weight actually believes it will help the person, and if they make that claim they're a liar and a wasteful person).

Present demonstrated ways to help people lose weight, and present yourself as their partner, not their bully, and you can provide them help. If you complain about other people's weight but you yourself lack the resources to help them, then you are just their bully, and you're not helping.

Feeling entitled to complain to people about the problems they face in their own lives, and when said problems don't affect you, really shows a sick sense of entitlement, and people feeling that they can dictate to others that others should just plain feel bad is a major part of why the world is falling apart right now.

And I say these things as someone who's been a fat person, as a person who's lot a very considerable amount of weight, and as a person who has been a victim of bullying.

But seriously, how did you get all that from that Twitter image? He's a medical doctor, so he's probably got resources to help people, and he's pointing out the medical issues that accompany obesity, not body-shaming. It literally seems like the polar opposite of what you're taking issue with.

Meanwhile, fat acceptance (like pro-anorexia) is the exact opposite of what anybody doing a google search for weight loss tips should find. It may be a reaction to bullying, but it's not a good one.
