High exam hall ceilings are correlated with a lower exam score
  • I had exams in the building pictured at the top of the article. On one occasion it was 6°C and I struggled to write for the whole exam. That building is fucking freezing and the heaters set up around the outer walls did nothing. After the exam it took me several hours huddled in front of a heater to stop shaking. A nice warm classroom would have helped everyone.

  • Shopping app Temu is “dangerous malware,” spying on your texts, lawsuit claims
  • I'm anticonsumption in general and temu just seems like the epitome of paying for disposable garbage.

    In general i don't understand why people are buying any nonessential items at all. Everyone is apparently too poor but random crap still sells. I splurged and bought a cheap tablet to use as an ereader this year but only because i can't justify the expense of buying books and my local library is awful.

    US Olympic and other teams will bring their own AC units to Paris, undercutting environmental plan
  • Economic imbalance is baked into the games.

    Taking your own air conditioner and rubbing it in the face of those who can't afford it, in the olympic village where you're all supposed to be treated the same, is such a glaring display of economic privilege that i find it bothersome.

    I'm always embarrassed by Australia spending a fortune on sport and then congratulating ourselves for winning more medals, especially at the commonwealth games where most of the countries are poor.

  • You can't remove individual differences but there ought to be a level playing field at least at the actual competition. Is it acceptable to provide better accommodation to rich countries? White countries? I think at the games everyone should be treated equally.

  • Is this thing related to Sonic?

    Saying Israel is committing genocide in its war with Hamas is like saying American and British forces committed it during their devastating campaign against the German city in 1945.
