ROSE BECOMES THE DOCTOR
  ↳  Turn Left Parallels (1/2)

This is why I love Rose. She was trapped in another universe, no hope of ever coming back, going to her home. The Doctor even told her that there was no way he could come through. But did she give up? Hell no, she got a job in Torchwood and worked for years to find a way, a way to go back to the Doctor. She did not sit around and wait to be rescued either, she did it herself, she persevered and took control.

Every parking lot ought to look like this! Shades the cars while producing free energy. Germany has created over 500,000 new jobs by pushing hard into solar and wind energy - providing incentives for everyone to install and as a result, they will be able to move forward with their plans to shut down all their nuclear power plants in the next decade.

“ Why do long words take longer to think? Shouldn’t it all be instantaneous? ”

Because we think semantically, with a narrative voice in our head. We think of words in regards to how they sound, not just what they mean.

The idea that certain cultures are better at math is similar to this, a study found that languages with shorter words/less syllables for their numbers could remember more numbers. The average English speaker can remember 7 digits. Some languages can allow people to remember 9 digits and others can only recall an average of 5.

“ How do stores constantly get away with false advertising? ”

There’s a legal concept called “mere puffery.” Basically, claims that are unreasonable or clearly just brags are not taken as statements of fact. One of the more famous cases of puffery is Leonard v. Pepsico, in which someone tried to redeem 7 million Pepsi Points (purchased for $700,000) for a Harrier jet, as depicted in this ad. It was clear that there was no offer to give you a $23 million jet for $700,000, so the claimed offer/advertisement was ruled mere puffery.

Here, it’s clear that they’re not selling at the lowest price allowed by law, as that price would be sales tax + cigarette tax, no cost of the cigarettes, no overhead, no profit. It’s a brag about having good prices, not an absolute statement. Actual price guarantees, like those given by Wal-Mart or Target, have conditions that need to be met to claim the guarantee’s benefits. You often have to show them the lower advertised price, within so many days of purchase, ensure that both prices are offered at the same time, etc.
