Things That You Hate v3.0

Scientific illiteracy, psuedoscience, science fetishization, and perceptions of conflict between science and religious faith.

I think everyone should know and understand the basics of most common fields of science and mathematics. Too many people seem to not understand rudimentary chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics.

Examples like dihydrogen monoxide being water, genetics, physiological conditions and how to avoid them, and measuring the area and volume of everyday objects. I'm often surprised at how a person doesn't know something which seems incredibly basic and obvious to me.

However it's also important people understand the philosophy of science and the scientific method.

And don't even get me started on science fetishization. Queue the "science bitch" memes after learning a random fun fact and acting like that's exactly what science is.

How can people live in a world they don't understand?

Yeah, 16 years ago when I was in high school. I had lessons for 1 year and it didn't help.

I guess I should elaborate. I seem to have no sense of rhythm. I'm trying to learn "Apache" by "The Shadows", which is a very easy song from a technique perspective. I can get the intro and first two sections done, but when he gets to a part that sounds like galloping, I can't grasp my head around it at all - I saw tutorials on how to play it and I still can't replicate that rhythm.

The backing guitar which only strums two chords for the most part is another thing I tried but again - no sense of rhythm to be had, and I botch it.

On theory, I know how to improvise and how to play in a key, and so I have also tried improvising over a backing track. I sound robotic, can barely play in "time" and there's no phrasing and no rhythm again.

I've been practicing the guitar again since 2020. I bought an electric one last year - for those two years of practice, I can play two very simple songs on the acoustic guitar, and a very simple version of the Narcos intro theme song on the electric guitar.

Last time I played the guitar before that was in 2006 - 2007 when I was in high school and taking guitar lessons. And I was shit at it then too. It hurts because I love the instrument, I love holding it and learning about it, soaking in the theory and history of it and watching other people play - but I myself cannot do it. And I hate that I can't.

I hated this one time when I was 16 and at an inpatient mental facility, where this kid kept telling me how to use a Wii, which was pissing me off. I mean, he was doing this as if I had never heard of a video game prior to that moment.

One: I had a Wii at home.
Two: I have played this game before.
Three: JUST LET ME PLAY THE GAME!

They told him to stop, so he did. I did better on it after he was told to stop. Lol

I cannot claim to have musical talent myself, so I cannot really offer any advice about rhythm. Perhaps somebody in the music section of the forum could though? Is there a thread for people learning guitar?

Cramps.
If you could remove the beartrap from my insides, that'd be great.
Oof. :( I feel for you. Mine used to be so bad that whenever I had them during my cycle, I'd spend 40% of the school week in the nurse's office bed. This was in highschool.

I also had cysts in my ovaries, and I was told that those were the cause of my cramps.
