... which is why butter is desperately needed, I guess. Somehow the traditional version of "In case of doubt add bacon (optional: cheese)!"A bit oldie, used to be a common saying. I don't know how commonly people eat parsnips any more - as I remember nobody really liked them.
I hate parsnips, even with butter. Give me a nice boiled potato with butter, sour cream, grated cheese, and some mexican <whatever> any day.

With a little olive oil and roasted in the oven until sweet. Yum. Had my first parsnip a age fifty...not popular during my youthI'm quite partial to a roast (unbuttered) parsnip now and then.
I'm not so fond of brussels sprouts. My favourite vegetable is the leek. The most spectacular is the Romanesco broccoli:With a little olive oil and roasted in the oven until sweet. Yum. Had my first parsnip a age fifty...not popular during my youth
Apparently the "yum" part is quite subjective and seems hard-wired in our genes: https://www.sciencefocus.com/the-human-body/why-do-some-people-hate-brussels-sprouts/
Not a one-liner by any means but full of insight. I do remember as a younger student being frustrated at not having immediate overarching perspective/intuition. Things were so easy at the 2000 level that when it came to higher level classes I hit a wall because things were no longer intuitive.Partially because the future physics is truly unknown. Also because teaching how it fits would require you to understand the subjects you don't yet know and that is not efficient. But, where possible, we agree
Teaching the elementary methods to bright students is particularly difficult because often they use shortcuts to do the simple provblems: "Why do I need to draw a free body analysis when I can just write down answer from my head ?" The method of analysis is what is being taught, not how to play with Atwood Machines. Soon enough the problems will be non-intuitive. You need some faith that these folks understand what they are doing.
I was not complaining about your post specifically but all of the last several posts. I feel the thread got off track and no, I don't agree that this is the right thread to celebrate long posts. If you'd like to start a new thread to do that then do so. Let's keep this to one-liners.Yes most of the posts highlighted in the thread are witty one liners. But why not highlight good posts in general? Assuming they aren’t too technical/content heavy.
Then I applied an "inverse acid-trip transform" to see what clean circuit concepts might have been present in the ancestral circuit, and how they might interrelate.
There are well known ways of countering valid arguments. "The Big Lie", "Straw man", "Ad hominem", "Equivocation", "Post hoc ergo propter hoc", "Deflect and distract, never give in, never admit fault, lie and attack, lie and attack".... not that we wouldn't try!
