An action plan based on my personal experience
What do you think?
If you trade, you’ve probably heard about trading journals. A trading journal can really be anything that documents your trading and helps you find your edge.
Your trades reflect mostly two things: the way you look at markets and how you respond to them emotionally. That’s why journaling brings clarity to your trading system — it enables you to find patterns within the market and within yourself.
It also helps you come up with strategies and evaluate how well they perform in each market. …
Rumor has it that toilets flush backwards in Australia.
Which sounds dumb.
So I decided to investigate.
We’ve all heard the myth about how toilets flush differently in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.
Sadly, once you research it, you quickly discover that the toilet swirl depends mostly on the shape and design of the toilet itself, rather than your position on earth.
But there is indeed a correlation between location and water swirls and that is due to no other than the earth’s own rotation. Smart people called it the Coriolis Effect.
Let’s take a hypothetical case: draining still water…
Golf actually retraces back to the times of Julius Caesar. History makes it sound like they knew how to have fun back then.
Traditional golf as known today started being played in the 15th century by fancy Scots in their country houses. Mary Queen of Scots, among many others, was one of the early devotees to this recreation, which started out as simple wood balls aimed at holes and kicked with branches.
Early on, sharp golfers started noticing how golf balls which were beaten up with bumps and slices seemed to fly further than regular, new ones. …
Is there anyone who has never wondered how an airplane actually flies?
The problem about looking stuff up online is the absence of an algorithm that quantifies the amount of bullshit exposed in websites. Therefore, when someone tries to understand what really goes into making aircraft fly, usually one out of two things happen:
a) you get incredibly overwhelmed with controversial information, or
b) you simply accept that there is thrust, drag, lift and weight and that that’s everything you know for sure.
Let’s be honest; everyone, even if not a STEM fellow, has heard about aerodynamics and also about acoustics. Probably most people even have a intuitive understanding of the governing laws of both fields; but when you type ‘Aeroacoustic’ in your Microsoft Word you get accused of committing a typo. What?
Well, first things first. Either to satisfy your curiosity or to shine my way through your alt+f4 keys, I feel obligated to let you know that I’m a mechanical engineering student currently working on my master thesis in the thermotechnology industry.
And this isn’t just me trying to buy…
