So my electric board was working perfectly fine, and then I hit a little bump. Now the wheel locks and I can hear the motor running but it doesn’t turn. If the board is moving and I use the remote it stops in it’s tracks. How do I repair this myself??

I made an initial test deposit to my monero wallet and it went through fine. I made a second deposit to the wallet, and the transaction did not go through. The blockchain says "pending". This transaction was 2 years ago, and the transaction still says pending. Any idea why my transaction did not go through and is still pending? The transaction ID is :

2022.01.18 20:47 fsdafsthy5432 Do the types of videos I interact with have an effect on who sees my videos?
I have 28.9k followers and the videos I interact with are all mental health related. The videos I post are just silly comedy videos.
So basically I'm just wondering if the algorithm tries to push my videos to people who have a fyp like mine. My views are super low (I'm not even hitting 100 views per video) and I used to get hundreds of thousands of views.
Should I start interacting more with comedy type videos in order to get more views?

2022.01.18 20:47 McKenzieesh Photofeeler made me realise I'm bad at picking the good photos
Either that or it's not accurate. Here are some photos I put up https://imgur.com/a/7SKp8rf
I expected the ones where I have a suit on to do the best, but they did the worst. I thought the one of me outside, or the close up selfie, would be the worst ones but they came up above average. As for the first photo, I just can't figure out why that would get such a high score compared to the suit photos.
Granted the number of votes aren't super high but there's a clear pattern. Wonder what people think of this? Do you agree with the results? Have you found photofeeler useful?

2022.01.18 20:47 Dairidairi Does self studying a language / tutoring* the language count?
I've self studied Japanese for about 3 years and gained a few online friends through cultural exchange servers online who can't speak any English. Occasionally, we'll hang out for an hour or two and I'll help them practice their English and explain some grammar or expressions they might not understand all too well, does this count as "tutoring" or whatever? I also helped teach my English speaking friends Japanese because some of them wanted to learn it. I was planning about including it on my EC list and was wondering if I put it.

2022.01.18 20:47 Tristan_Penafiel Conspiracists Believe Their Fears, Not Their Theories
This is the text of a video essay I published here, which includes screenshots of sources used in the essay that might be interesting. It's a companion to my original essay about my experiences with my prominent conspiracy theorist dad.
Also, if you are a nurse, doctor, or other front-line healthcare worker who has experienced distrust and aggression in patients due to conspiracist beliefs, I would like to write a post/video essay talking about the phenomenon. Please send me a DM/chat request if you'd like to be anonymously included.
Lying for “Truth”
During the 2017 special Senate election in Alabama, Republican candidate Roy Moore was being accused of pretty awful sexual crimes. It was a powerful moment for the Me Too movement that led to his loss in the election.
But during the campaign an anonymous man created a robocall that left a voicemail message on the phone of at least one Alabaman, but probably more. In the call he claimed to be a reporter with the Washington Post, using a stereotypical East Coast Jewish name and accent, asking for women who would be willing to take money to make claims against Moore.
Of course there wasn’t any reporter doing this for the Washington Post. They covered the story as professional journalists, which they proved by discrediting a woman who lied to them, falsely claiming she was impregnated by Moore as a teenager. She seemed to be working with the right-wing organization Project Veritas to try, and fail, to prove what the robocall antisemite wanted to deceive Alambamans into believing.
The robocall was meant to be believable to people who were already suspicious of mainstream media, leading them to think that journalists were on the prowl in their state looking for any unproven accusation they could smear on Moore. In other words, it was a lie, and the antisemite who recorded it knew it was a lie. But the real question to answer here is whether he believed it was True.
We all have capital-T Truths that drive our lives. Truths about love, family, God, art, justice. These Truths aren’t necessarily subjective or relative, and they can be wrong, it’s just that they’re metaphysical. They’re outside the world of statistics and measurements and verifiable facts. But the best of them coexist with facts, allowing themselves to be informed by facts at the same time as they help us make sense of facts.
We get that we believe these Greater Truths in a different way than we believe in facts. Like, you might believe that it’s about to rain because you’ve gathered evidence, either from someone you trust using good science or by seeing and smelling and feeling the rain coming yourself. But you believe that you love your dog because you still do everything you can to make him happy despite the messes he makes. Or you believe that your relationship lasts because you and your partner have always been willing to forgive each other while working to earn that forgiveness. The fact of the rain is true in a way that confirms information to whatever degree of certainty we can have, which can never be perfect. The unconditional love for your dog and shared forgiveness with your partner aren’t factually true or empirically true. They’re Greater Truths that make sense of your world and reconcile its scattered, chaotic parts toward a better purpose.
For all of us, every day, the two kinds of belief will mingle. A fact of which we can’t be certain will challenge us in a way that makes us afraid, and we’ll have the option of asking Greater Truth to take it all away from us, to give us a false sense of certainty in the face of a troubling, complex reality. This is the beginning of Authoritarian Certainty.
Whether the robocall was real or fake didn’t really matter for the antisemite. If he was called out on it publicly, he would probably say it was meant as some kind of commentary or satire or a sarcastic “joke.” He could dissemble any way he wanted because what mattered to him was a Greater Truth to his mind, regardless of the facts, which was the same thing that I didn’t know at the time my dad was coming to believe: that the Jews secretly in power are conspiring to destroy white male ethnicity. The call was a fake, obviously, but to its maker it was just as True, with a capital T, as the international Jewish conspiracy he imagined he was fighting against, and it would do its part in contributing to that Truth.
As for my dad, I made a separate video essay telling our story, but I wanted to make another essay to emphasize this point. Because the more I think of Authoritarian Certainty, the more it helps at least me make sense of our era of anxious divisiveness. It gives me language I can use to internalize what’s going on in the hearts and minds of conspiracists and hopefully know better how to interact with them. It’s not like I’m an expert on social psychology or therapy, and there’s no part of the concept that’s new, really, but I think it can kind of do something to explain what’s going on with everything from paranoid conspiracy theorizing to religious hatred to Twitter dogpiling and TV show fandom drama.
Throughout 2020, my dad’s website would say that the raging COVID pandemic was at the same time a nonexistent hoax, a bug no more dangerous than the flu, and a deadly Chinese biowarfare attack only treatable with risky, unproven drugs. It didn’t matter that these things can’t be true at the same time. At the University of Kent in 2012, social psych researchers found that “the more participants believed that Princess Diana faked her own death, the more they believed that she was murdered.” The more they “believed that Osama bin Laden was already dead when US special forces raided his compound in Pakistan, the more they believed he is still alive.” Again, these things can’t be true at the same time, but these people aren’t crazy. They just don’t really “believe” in those statements in the way that we keep imagining they do. These aren’t literal, consistent, rational beliefs. They’re security blankets.
Even when they’re disproven on a point of fact, you’ll find that the conspiracist never really believed it as a point of fact. What they really believe, and what they always believed, is a Greater Truth, to their minds, that’s beyond any facts - that global elites are using Covid to control our lives. It’s impossible for Covid to be a nonexistent hoax and a real but a not at all dangerous flu and a Chinese bioweapon. But, if the Greater Truth of your Authoritarian Certainty is that global elites are controlling us with lies, then Covid being a hoax confirms that belief, Covid being a common flu confirms that belief, and Covid being a biowarfare attack confirms that belief. Thus all of them are true, in the same way, at the same time. Not factually true, but emotionally, intuitively, metaphysically True in a way that overrides facts.
That’s why it’s pointless to debate points of fact with conspiracists. If a conspiracist sees a headline in the morning saying a Covid variant is less dangerous, they’ll say, “See? Covid is just a flu, if it even exists at all.” Then if that same conspiracist sees a headline in the evening that says “So and so died of Covid today,” they’ll say, “See? This Chinese bioweapon is killing everyone.” The specific tenets are just rationalizations they’ve collected to use for any situation that challenges their sense of certainty. So even if you succeed in debating them, all they’ll do is move the goalposts back, further up the hill they plan to die on. Then once you’re gone, as soon as you’re out of the room or off the phone and they no longer need to justify their beliefs to you, they’ll snap right back into believing everything they might have just conceded because, to them, their Greater Truth is still true, and you can never disprove it with debate.
This is how Authoritarian Certainty is the mechanism of Orwell’s doublethink. Those who doublethink don’t actually believe in two opposite things at the same time. They believe in a single Greater Truth that’s more True to them than facts. So much so that a lie told to spread that Truth is more True than any fact can be alone, even a lie that contradicts other lies told for the same Truth. They can always be reconciled by baptism within that Greater Truth - a certainty so powerful that it can dispel all doubt and assert itself as a dictator over our terrifyingly uncertain knowledge of the factual world.
In other words, it’s a capital-letter Big Lie. Where a regular lie says what is false is fact to manipulate people who act on facts, a Big Lie strides out of the metaphysical, imposing Truth over facts, crushing them underfoot to manipulate those who fear uncertainty.
It’s powerful. It lets you easily fulfill pretty much any emotional need that makes you unhappy or afraid or insecure about yourself. And it’s insidious in the way that, the more you believe you’re immune to Authoritarian Certainty, the more likely you’re participating in it.
It’s also nothing new. You can’t be human without believing in some kind of Greater Truth, and you also can’t be human without having some anxiety about uncertainty. But Greater Truths that impose themselves over factual reality to make us feel comforted and righteous and powerful, the ones that empower Authoritarian Certainty, aren’t the only Greater Truths. There’s also the Truths of why you love your dog, or why your relationship lasts, or what hobbies bring your friends together, or what makes for a community of mutual support, or what makes all humans equal in moral worth.
These are Reconciling Truths. They’re Greater Truths that approach facts with humility, listening to them, being willing to be changed by them. But also offering a lens through which to understand facts and offering explanations when facts and rational inquiry are at a loss.
The funny thing is that Reconciling Truths, in the end, accomplish the same thing as Authoritarian Certainty. They give comfort and resolve in the face of uncertainty. But where Authoritarian Certainty falsely promises the destruction of your enemies and the righteous aggrandizing of your tribe, Reconciling Truths ask for humility and dialog. And where Reconciling Truths lead to compromise and coexistence and maybe understanding each other, Authoritarian Certainty leads to violence.
It may be nothing new, but we’re facing more danger in the rise of Authoritarian Certainty today than we have in generations. And the only thing that’s ever saved us from it is Reconciling Truth.
