why do humans behave in ways that decrease their survival probability?

for example.. pic related. her body risks shutting down

or a drug user risks heart attack..

or a lard ass.. risks diabetes.

why do humans continue behaviors which hurt them?

How can the expansion of the universe be ACCELERATING? That seems impossible to me. Nothing can accelerate indefinitely. Let's say an object is accelerating at 1G in space. On the cosmic scale, it wouldn't take long at all to reach the speed of light. This is true for any object that is accelerating. The speed of light should easily be reached for any acceleration on the timescales of the universe?
Objects at the edge of the observable universe, about 46 bn ly from us, are receding from us at about 3x c
That doesn't even need accelerating expansion, the steady 2cm/s per ly is enough
it's not
space itself is expanding

as an example:
if the space between you and the door that's 2m away expands 1m/s, it becomes 3m

at the same time, the space between the door and the window at the other side of the room (let's say it's 2m as well) expands at the same speed, 1m/s. it becomes a 3m room.

Suddenly, the distance between you and the other room's window is 6 meters.

But it was 4 before! And space expands at 1m/s!! It stacks up. The further something is, the further it seems to expand.

If there are three 2m rooms that become 3m rooms in 1s, they go from being a length of 6m to 9m, and so on.

If there are 100 rooms of 2m each, they all expand 1m/s, in 1s the entire length of all those room will increase to 300, and so on

Oh dang, thanks lawful good science bro. You helped me to think in a slightly new way.
Good shit
Where does the energy to accomplish accelerating expansion come from? How can the universe be considered a closed system if it expands?

Is it possible for consciousness to overcome genetic imperatives through reason, or is that overcoming simply an overcoming of genetically instilled mental obstacles to overcome?

St John’s Wort is an example of an enzyme inducer, a substance that speeds up the breakdown of another substance. By encouraging the breakdown of the other drug at a faster rate than normal, this means that the other drug becomes less effective.

Does Sj Wort help to detox the liver acting in this way? Or is it the opposite?

Scientifically speaking,

What are the physiological limitations on any person's current flexibility?

Is it the nervous system (protective inhibitory function)?
Is it the length of the muscle itself?
Is it the length of tendons?
The looseness or tightness of fascia?

or something else?

stop shitting this board with screenshots of reddit posts. if you are so interested in what reddit has to say then stay there and don't come back
1. higher velocity of low-income earners -> higher demand -> job creation
2. lower social costs -> social assistance, crime, policing, judicial
3. redistribution (better to be in wages than taxes)
1. it's the right thing to do - says who?
2. minimum wage doesn't keep pace with inflation - who says it should? should costs keep pace with the rate of inflation - should companies be obligated by law not to raise costs by more than the rate of inflation?

the point i'm making is that it's nearly impossible to lay off workers or lower wages. this only really happens after busts, you cannot genuinely say that minimum wage really affects it to any significant degree.
I'll quote few people to illustrate the dissonance between the common populace and people interested in economics, as that is a far better tool for combating ignorance than scarce knowledge that i can teach you. Enjoy

"It it's ... possible to start a war in a computer room or a stock exchange that will send an enemy country to its doom, then is there non-battlespace anywhere? ... If a [young] lad setting out with his orders should ask today, "Where is the battlefield?" the answer would be, "Everywhere."

"The man of system ... seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board. He does not consider that in the great chess-board of human society, every single piece has a principle of motion of its own."
Adam Smith

Layoffs happen all the time man. Wage reduction doesn't though.
there is a difference between laying someone off because they're underperforming, and laying someone off because you'd rather hire Jamal instead of him
There's a big difference between laying off/furloughing employees and firing them. They usually happen because the company is changing its structure.
You must not be very familiar with how this type of thing works. This entire argument is hypothetical on the basis of abolishing minimum wage anyway.
I believe what employers would most likely do is hire new employees at reduced wages while keeping old employees at the same rate they were paid before.
Although I wouldn't put it past them to give the employees at lower wages significantly more hours than their counterparts.

Can we scientifically quantify the harm to mental health and self-esteem using the internet and sites like 4chan have?

Depends if you ask a psychiatrist or a psychologist, a psychiatrist will be more right but still in a wrong way, neurotransmitter reductionism is retarded

Brainlets: Haha funny Fortune picture. Fortune best.
Midwits: 4chan is worse than heroin. 4chan ruined my life.
Highwits: 4chan has improved my skills in many ways and made me laugh. Thank you 4chan.
it's possible to quantify anything with a large enough sample size and good data
the hard part is having anonymous posters want to give up personal data

people are retarded even your lecturers most of them will do and say what is accepted during that time. i think only thing that changed during that time probably was public opinion/who recommendation.
