Thanks to Maggi, I used say I know cooking. It looks like I'll have to remove "cooking" from my skill-set.

Another brilliant episode about an important topic. If you don't have 15 minutes watch the "updated" AOL commercial at the end starting about 13:50. (The original one appears earlier in the segment.)

"I am an atheist because I am super-skeptical about anything supernatural."
Does it make any sense?

I am so skeptical I take human made constructs like language ( communications) with definitions of words/labels in it and question even that of culture to culture. Gestures to sound at that.
It doesn't always take extraordinary evidence when it comes to science ( like mixing vinegar with baking soda to understand the reaction), but besides this the human brain is easily tricked by illusions, psychology, and possible false memory. At least it seems to me in experiment.

Still even with bias, prejudice, bigotry, stereotypes, superstitious thinking, and generalization all humans have to struggle ( more or less) to figure out what fits them from birth one way or another it seems. Emotions of sorts are always there and can not be avoided with experiences. It is opinions to guess or assume what is cynical or skeptical. Each person is different with different needs, and this even psychological health wise besides physical otherwise.
One if skeptical should effort media literacy, scientific literacy, and other literacy while also understanding psychology as much as possible I think while all the time looking at oneself skeptically.


There are times I wonder if humans can go to the extreme with skeptical and critical thought in obsessed likeness. I wonder if some could effort a religion out of such ideas what skeptical thought is. Though only a bit once and a while I wonder such things. I do not expect humans or nature to be perfect ( what ever that means philosophically besides definition).

Skeptics can be skeptical of things besides the supernatural claims and arguments full of fallacies of course.

Eating chocolate while studying math or anything in general helps!
Is it better for your brain in the long run too?

Prolonged usage of boosters(may they be mild) can hurt you someway or other.
Try to go natural. Calm your mind, avoid distractions, realise why you are
studying... everyone can naturally be focused & energetic always.
No need of chokolatess.
