Steem Basic Income Giveaway (Assumed Knowledge)

in steempress •  5 months ago

All of us are experts in something, it could be esoteric (some obscure science field or sociological knowledge), artistic (painters and musicians), practical (gardening and cooking) or plain weird (being able to recite pi to a million digits). If we think about this, this should be obvious, as we all devote our time and energy towards our specific interests via work or play or study.

As we have completely different life experiences and learning, it is too easy to forget that what we know, not everyone else might know! Things that are stupidly obvious to us, are completely opaque to others. And this is a good thing, as long as we are tolerant of the difference and use it as a chance to learn or teach, rather than as a way of highlighting a potential superiority or difference.

So for this week's SBI giveaway, I am asking about what is that you know that you mistakenly think everyone knows... and what is it that you think everyone else knows, but you seem to be the only person that can't grasp the concept! They can be either serious or trivial or funny... anything that comes to mind!

My assumed knowledge

Weirdly enough although I'm a musician, I don't assume too much of other people in this area. However, I had studied also Theoretical Physics (with a good dose of Mathematics), and here it is that I keep tripping myself up. I always seem to assume that people understand or know more about Physics and Mathematics in general. For instance, I always think that people understand basic Mechanics (Forces/Energy), basic differentiation and integration (the basis of Calculus), in addition to be at least familiar with the basic concepts of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. I don't expect them to understand the mathematics of the Physics topics, but I always think that the predictions and basic concepts are more widely known than they apparently appear to be...

For the the thing that I just can't get my head (and hands around) that I think everyone else on Earth has figured out, is the folding of women's clothes. Men's clothes are easy, flat and simply shaped everywhere. Women's clothes just don't fold flat or easily... and yet everyone else seems to manage and not make a weird shaped pile of the laundry! What is the secret? What am I missing?

Rules

  1. Upvote if you want, it increases the payout and then I can hopefully sponsor more people.
  2. Resteem is NOT neccessary, but the more people see this, the more the people will be likely to be sponsored.
  3. In the comments, tell me what is that you know that you thought everyone knew! And what is it that everyone seems to know that you just can't do or wrap your head around?
  4. I have added a small Steem-Bounty to the post, so that everyone who replies with a valid entry will get something back. If I give your post a small upvote, it is valid (also, subscribe to @dustsweeper for maximum benefit!).
  5. I will be sponsoring as many people as this post pays out in liquid SBD/STEEM. Also I will kick in at least the required amount to round up to the full number. Winner is by random generator after a shortlisting of quality comments!

Steem Basic Income

One of the first communities that I came in contact with at the beginning of my time at Steemit was @steembasicincome. As a beginning author, Steemit can be a daunting place. It feels like you are posting into an abyss with no ability to grow. Steem Basic Income gives you a guaranteed vote on one post a day, thus giving you a small but cumulative over time support to your account.

With this post, I want to help sponsor people who might not even have the spare 1 STEEM that is required for registration. So, when this post pays out, I will sponsor people depending on the payout of this post. Basically, I will round up the SBD payout from this post and then that will be the number of people I will sponsor. (So, if the payout is 2.3 SBD, I will sponsor 3 people).

Last week's winners

Last week paid out 1.182 SBD and 0.736 STEEM, so I will make it 3 shares.

Congratulations to:

I think the thing that I know that I can't understand how so few other people seem to get is how, living in LA, why people get so friggin' worked up about traffic when it's not a big deal at all. They're choosing to be mad for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Like, seriously, you chose to live here, traffic exists, and it's fine. Chill out and enjoy your music or podcast or whatever. It's not worth making everyone else miserable by cutting people off and being a rude asshole. I have friends who religiously do yoga and meditate and think they're Buddhist or whatever, and they completely flip out in traffic and start screaming at everyone. Why?!

What I don't get is what is so interesting about the Kardashians.

·

good one!!!

·

Wow, LA sounds like a crazy place! I only had an experience with the airport whilst transiting through to Canada... lets just say, I will avoid doing that again!

Kardashians... you and me....no idea!

After 15 years working in the telecommunications industry, I have developed an intricate knowledge of how a lot of the back end stuff works and with close to half of that time dealing with the transfer of numbers between networks, I almost instinctively know which number ranges are native to which mobile carrier. I have a tendency to assume other people in the organisation have the same level of knowledge....

I also seem to be one of very few drivers in Hobart, Tasmania that knows to correctly use an indicator whilst driving!!!

·

Haha, I'm sure they know who to ask though! I've made it a valid entry with the upvote, but I'm not sure if you answered the second part (what you don't know, that others appear to).

·
·

Whoops. I completely missed that part. I guess I'd have to say I have no clue about iPhones. For someone who has worked in the industry so long, I have successfully avoided using these devices so know very little about them.

·
·
·

Ha ha me too! I'm a complete tech nerd, but give me a Mac or an iPhone and I'm completely useless! Everything seems completely opposite to what I expect... But other people swear by them...

(1) I assume people feel as deeply as I do and are just as emotional, which doesn't help me explain to them what I am feeling because they haven't experienced the feeling I am experiencing. I think the best example I can thing of comes down to food. Some many people eat crap food - just read the label (it's filled with man-made chemicals). Their level of care about what they put in their body is very strange to me.

(2) Women. I haven't found one to date or marry that doesn't already have a boyfriend or husband. Almost all the women I approach have boyfriends. My approach is usually really bad too. How people get dates with others is way over my head.

·

Weird! I could have sworn I replied to you!

Anyway, I never managed to date. I would be too scared to ask anyone out! I always had friends that gradually morphed into something more...

·
·

I have had trouble even making friends with women because I haven't dealt with my past. So much to do!

Thanks for having the contest @bengy! I'm a big fan of Steem Basic Income.

Things I don't seem able to get, yet everyone else does? Simple mechanics and assembly of stuff. The entire world seems able to remove something from a "some assembly required" box and figure it out in minutes with just casual (or no) reference to the instructions. For me? I have to read everything six times, lay everything out in order... and no matter how many times I've put together IKEA furniture, it STILL is a major ordeal every time!

Now here's the contradiction: I seem able to "problem solve" far better than most. I see a bunch of variables and inputs and I can intuit the correct outcome in seconds. People ask "How do you DO That???" and I am baffled because it feels like common sense. Evidently... it's not.

·

Ha ha, it all seems to stemfrom being a cat. Assembly would be much easier with opposable thumbs! And intuitive ideas are completely a cat's domain!

For the first part," Tell me what is that you know that you thought everyone knew!" I would say that there is a distinct difference between "legal" and "lawful".

For the second part, "And what is it that everyone seems to know that you just can't do or wrap your head around?" I would say that seems to be there is no difference between "legal" and "lawful" in everyone' s minds.

·

Ummmmm... What is the difference between legal and lawful? I thought they were the same!

·
·

I will give you an example to explain. In the USA according to law the only "lawful" money is gold and silver coins, that is the law. However the USA no longer has "money" in circulation , all the gold money was confiscated by the government in 1933 and silver has also been phased out over time.
But in 1933 the people still needed a way to pay for goods and services and having no lawful money made it impossible to do so the government created what is known today as "Federal Reserve Notes" that are issued by the central bank to replace the money. It is a form of currency, which is a medium of exchange and again, it is not lawful money.
So the government then said the federal reserve notes are "legal tender" and that they are good for all debts public and private so they must be accepted as payment for all debts.
So lawful means exactly that, in accordance to the law. Legal on the other hand means what is generally accept as good or okay with the society but does not comply with written law.
Some people might consider that to be "splitting hairs" but the facts are the facts. There are plenty of things that are considered "legal" but do not meet the standard as set by the law. The more people accept these types of things the more lawless our society becomes, government is really good at circumventing the law and replacing things with "legal" in their place. It is how they end up in total control of the people because people don't pay enough attention to the meanings of words.
Personally, I would much rather have gold and silver in my pockets than pieces of paper that have nothing backing the value of them.

·
·
·

Huh, thanks for the explanation! I'm not sure I would prefer precious metals in my pocket, there is a certain convenience with cash... But I do appreciate the difference.

·
·
·
·

With the price of gold you wouldn't have to carry around but probably one coin since gold is over $1,000 an ounce and $20 gold coin back then was right at a ounce of gold I think, it might have weighed even more, but you surely would need many in your pocket for normal day to day living.

·
·
·
·
·

I get that, but how would you do fractions of the gold? I guess with less precious metals. Then my other question, which is how to deal with the limited supply of gold and the greater demand for it (as an increasing number of people will want to use it, just by normal population growth)? The price of gold will appreciate, leading to possibly uncontrollable inflation, or continuing subdivision of the 'gold coin unit'?

PS : apologies for the questions but it is a new idea for me!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Here in the USA four metals were used, gold , silver , nickel, and copper. The nickle and copper took care of the 5 cents and 1 cent transactions or in making change. The 10, 25, 50 cent coins were all made of silver and so were the $1 coins. Gold was the higher denomination $'s coins.
Paper "money" led to inflation and devaluation of the dollar, the US dollar has lost 97% of it's purchasing power since 1933 according to reports I have read from this year. So it would seem that without substance behind the "money" is a bigger problem than scarcity would be. You could still have electronic transactions or credit cards but settlement of the accounts would have to take place by the physical transfer of the coin money, so one trip to the bank a month would be required if you had any financial transactions.
There is a lot more that would be required in explaining the history and it would be very lengthy but I believe we would have far less financial problems in the world today had gold and silver been kept as the standard for the dollar. It was the banks that caused the initial problems when it came right down to it, and then they were ultimately the ones who ended up profiting the most from the problem they created.
It would be like a town that had only one auto body repair shop, and the owner of the shop would go out in a old beat up car at night crashing into parked cars and causing damage to them, he knows he will have plenty of business the next weeks to come.
The banks were and are no different than the body shop owner.

Thanks for the replies. I will go and read more about it. Although, it would appear (at first glance) difficult to attribute a root cause easily (due to so many complicating factors) to the adverse affects of inflation on purchasing power. Anyway, thanks for sparking my interest!

I thought I would give this a go... I don't feel I'm a master at anything, but working in customer service for most of my life on various ends there have been a few things that come to mind.

Since this is a 'technology' based system, we'll go with internet services and slow computers. I spent 8 years working from what was considered a 'mom&pop' type company being sold 2 in 6 years to end up with one of the 'top' cable companies in the country.

What I still cannot get my head around is how people think that their computer runs slow due to the internet. When I actuality it is usually because the user does not maintain their computer. The never seem to realized there are these things called cookies that download on your computer and that each time you access an internet page your computer has to go through all of those cookies to find the right ones needed.

The other thought I have with that is 'Your internet put viruses on my computer!!' We'll just let that thought sit there LOL

·

Ha, Yes I struggle alot with people blaming computers and the internet before user error! Ram bloat (need to reboot occasionally!) and leakage is another common one...

I guess there is a level of abstraction with dealing with computers and the Internet that people find difficult to grasp... I can't believe how many times I have to explain how cloud infrastructure works...

·
·

I used to describe everything like a pipeline and frequency levels. The idea that so many people think a computer is plug 'n play and you never have to do anything to it.

·
·
·

I guess I have that attitude with our car... Just drive it and only do forced maintenance!

  1. What do you know that you think other people know, but they generally don't?

how to drive. I see more accidents that should never happen. You add in snow and it's a free for all

2 What do you do badly, that everyone else seems to find easy?

Posting, formatting etc. it takes me so lone and some people put such nice formatted post together

thanks maybe we can get a little more exposure to this contest :)

·

So many accidents happen from people just wanting to get somewhere in a hurry. Leave earlier and just go easy! Going fast and driving crazy doesn't gain much time and just lows everyone else down!

I also see some really nicely formatted posts from other people, I have to learn how to make the pictures smaller and to the side of the text...

·
·

In the information-library there is "the ultimate mark down steemit guide" I have been using the information from it. It has the pull right or left command for putting the picture on one side and text on the other plus other commands

Everyone in a rush to get where they need to go as if it will not be there when they get there

·
·
·

Perfect, thanks! I will have to read it!

Tell me what is that you know that you thought everyone knew!

When playing Black Jack the A can be used as 1 or 11. While most know this there are some that don`t.

And what is it that everyone seems to know that you just can't do or wrap your head around?

Swim ..... I just can't see to stay afloat for very long.

·

I thought everyone knew that about blackjack! As for the swimming, maybe you need to find saltier water? 10.jpg

So did I but not everyone does.

Well I know a lot about sports in general whether it be football, cricket or any other competitive sports because I have played sports throughout my school life, I'm obsessed. Here I have met many people who aren't into sports amd don't know a lot about them. I still haven't figured out dtube as yet just madr an account and uploaded a few videos but have to go in depth to understand it fully and many steemians here use dtube so most of them have an idea about it.

·

I'm afraid I'm one of those that don't know much about sports! I don't really see the appeal of watching, instead of playing?!

You could also look at dLive, it is also a video site on the STEEM chain.

·
·

Thanks and will do but I doubt I can do a good video while it will just be haphazard.

Dont worry about the laundry thing
looks in closet and sees disaster style pile of womans clothing

So I work in sugery, and that often makes people think I know everything about ANY kind of illness in the human body. The truth is, I just know surgery, and diseases that comes with that. Average facts about flu or vaccines are not my topic, JUST because i am in healthcare.

A pastry chef doesnt neccesarily know how to make the perfect steak you know ;))

My brother is an OBG, and he has everyone asking about everything from runny noses to broken stuff! Not really in the same field....

Good that I'm not the only one that can't figure out how to fold those clothes!

Once people hear medical, you are like the encyclopedia all of a sudden hahahahha

Ps try this one ;)

JIHAAAA..thanks there !!

Im seeing the next post already there, lets get some inspiration for there!

Another good topic this week. Because I work in IT, I often assume people know how to use certain software because I use them everyday.

So software like RDP (Windows Remote Desktop) I would assume that people know how to use it (at least within the company), but I'm always surprised when people ask me what RDP is.

On the other hand, I'm not good with HR stuff so every time when it comes to doing the end of year performance review I have a hard time coming up with things to write. Where as my other colleges know exactly what to write and how to present themselves in a good way.

·

Haha, you have to write your own performance review? I would be writing.. did job well, didn't burn the place down...

I'm assuming you use RDP, so that you don't have to explain how to do anything else over the phone!

·
·

lol yep, we write our own review and then sit down with the manager to go through it together and come up with a rating.

Yea, RDP makes things so much easier, normally people don't use this function, but in IT we use this alot.

Good question! I know a lot about laser printers/copiers, but others do not. Many times people will call toner ink, though toner is dry and ink is wet. One thing I don't do well is small talk. I like talking about weighty matters, but really don't care about the weather report.

·

I, on the other hand, also don't do small talk too well (odd for a woman, perhaps), but I can tell you that we have a 20% chance of thunderstorms tonight. I love the weather!

·
·

Thanks for the comment, stay dry! :-)

·

I was thinking all the time that your knowledge was about sheeps. :D

A big hug my friend!

·
·

Nope. :-)

·

Heh... I didn't know about toner/ink! Now I do! I also have trouble with small talk, often just blundering straight into the topic that I had in mind before saying hello....

Thank you so much!!! Every share is so much appreciated. Sometimes, it feels like we are climbing this really high mountain here and it goes 1 step forward and 2 steps back LOL

What I can do and assume everyone can. Hmm. Actually many things having to do with growing up where everything was made from scratch and we all learned all kinds of skills like cooking, sewing, preserving, knitting, crocheting and so on. So, I am astounded when people have no clue whatsoever about such basic things.
But one thing I can do and many people can't is make change without a cash register telling me how much it should be.

What I haven't wrapped my head around (yet) and I am thinking everyone on this platform knows by heart is the whole crypto thing. Like creating all kinds of wallets and keeping them safe and trading at the exchanges. 😳

·

Ha, I'm always surprised about the inability for simple mental arithmetic as well!

The crypto, you are already waaaaayy ahead of the curve just by being on Steemit! Anyway, hardware wallets (Ledger for instance) are the easiest way to keep your crypto safe. However, it does restrict a little bit which currencies you can hold.

·
·

Working on that - hardware wallet...
I certainly have learned a lot about crypto since I am on Steemit. Just another mental block to overcome :)

·
·
·

I'm sure you have been told, but it good to repeat. Only buy from the 1st party, and it will never never never be pre-initialised.

The weakness shifts off the computer into the 24 seed words (which are also the weak point for software wallets). However, ledger has this nifty 24 + 1 extra secret word. This means you can easily keep 24 in a different location to the 1, allowing for greater security.

I use a mix of everything.

Thank you!!!

Thank you very much,and congratz to the other winners.

Great new topic again.

The thing I can't graps is easy, and I know it is weird, you'll understand in a minute.
Cooking, getting everything ready at the same time when you eat potatoes, vegetables and meat, a traditional Dutch dinner. Nowadays everyone is in pasta and rice, that is easy, put it all together and you are done. One pan dish. But before all that happened, I had no clue. My mom was great at it, people who invited me over for dinner seemed to be doing fine, I always messed it up. When things finally landed on a plate, some of it was cold already.

What I can do, and assume others can too, but often find out they can't. Solving puzzles, and I don't mean jigsaw, but puzzles like, programming errors, how to connect multiple routers in our homenetwork, how to restore functionality to our two way switch (after someone else took it apart), how things should be wired to work together correctly, figure out how a to me new program works and so on. Everything that includes analyzing some logic, is fun for me.

Do you see the contradiction? Planning a meal sounds like solving a time puzzle. I feel so dumb.

·

Practice! That's all it is. Your mom had plenty of practice before you even thought to follow!
My ex-father-in-law started scheduling the meal in reverse when he was widowed. So, you want to eat at 6pm. Figure it takes 5 minutes to serve... so everything should be done by 5:55. If your peas take 5 minutes, they should be boiling at 5:50... Your hamburgers take half an hour, so they get started at 5:30. There's nothing wrong with appealing to your obviously logical mind to solve this problem too. :-)
Honestly, I tend to forget about serving extra bits - the meat is easy. :-)

·
·

That would be a thing to try, working backwards.
Great thinking of him.
I am lucky enough someone else in the household loves to cook, so I don't have to cook that often.
Maybe I am just lazy when it comes to cooking. Ugh bad.

That said, that is what I say to people too when they don't understand how I got things back in working order. Practice! O man this is so weird.

·

There is a slight difference. With the cooking there is a real-time component that complicates matters. With the programming and puzzling, there is no timer ticking down that potentially spells a disastrous meal!

Although that would be funny to see someone network a house in minimal time, with random bugs and crashes happening the longer you took!

·
·

lol, that would be funny.

I actually thought about this a little longer because the working backwards trick seemed so easy I kind of wondered why I didn't think of that rotfl.

But I came to the conclusion, when solving a puzzle there is continuous 'brainactivity' trying different approaches, trying to find new logic.
When cooking I get distracted, because there is also waiting time, nothing to do. Then I think I can do something else in the meantime, but that never works out great for the meal :)

When I learn a new area, I find myself assuming that everyone else already knows the basics and it's just me who is catching up. Yet, because I learn so quickly, I can easily end up being an expert in my new field while friends who have been doing it for years have become so complacent that they have stopped growing and don't know half the things I've learned.

What can't I do that everyone else seems to do just fine? Market myself! I am better at doing, not at telling everyone that I'm doing! Steemit is awesome because I can just do - and people start to notice, but it's still better if I can share my posts places - and I'm sure I could do better with that too!

·

Ah yes, the ability to learn quickly and well is a really incredible skill to have. I'm finding that sharing posts can get to be a real time sink... I can do a little bit, but I get bored with it! But the return is worthwhile....

·
·

I share my post right after it's been posted, so it doesn't feel too bad. I share them on a few Facebook pages, and a few Discord groups as well as on my Google page.

·
·
·

Ha, you do more than I do. I only bother with Discord... Also, I like the fact that it is detached from people I know!

·
·
·
·

I like that too.
However, I already have pages on Facebook - especially for my fiction and photography, so those things get shared there automatically. The Facebook groups for Steemit have been of marginal use.

@bengy has set 1.000 SBD bounty on this post! logo_for-light-bg_1000.png
What is a bounty exactly?

A bounty is money sent to a post to be distributed to the users commenting on it. It provides a way to reward users directly and works in addition to the steem/sbd they receive from the blockchain. It works independently of SteemPower.

You create a bounty by sending any amount of sbd/steem to @steem-bounty together with a post-url in the memo.

How can I earn a bounty Users are then competing for the bounty by writing their answers to the post in comments that will achieve upvotes from the community and especially the bounty creator. The money of the bounty gets distributed to all top level comments of the post at the same time when the post is paid out (7 Days after it was written). How much everyone gets depends on the votes the comments received. The sender of the bounties votes are weighted higher so that she decideds where 80% of the bounty money goes and all other votes determine the rest.

@steem-bounty does all of this for you automatically. You can use this service to automatically pay out a challenge, ask a hard question or simply to reward the people that interact with you.

I always assumed that everyone knew basic Civics, such as how to treat a US flag, how the government works and the basic origin story of the USA. (Obviously I am a US citizen, but this might apply to any country)

I have never been able to grasp the “i before e...” thing. I take pride in my vocabulary and being to spell things correctly, but this is one of those things that for whatever reason completely escapes me! A little ironic to be sure!

Thanks for the post @bengy!

·

Hmmm I have a decent knowledge of Australian government workings and history... But I wouldn't know about a flag. On the other, we don't (in general) have such strong overt patriotic traditions as America.

Except after c! As I learn a new language (Dutch), I notice more and more how English is just a chaotic mess...

·
·

I was referring to rules such as the flag should never be flown in the rain; if flown at night it needs to be lit; when folded properly in a triangle pattern, the stars should be on the outside and the flag should always be flown with the field of stars to the left. These are the kind of things that people don’t know about the US flag anymore. Nowadays these rules seem arcane, but I like the tradition!

·
·
·

Huh, these are not things we are taught in Australia! Interesting traditions!

I see with concern how most people follow the rules and do not stop for a moment to think about why or to question things. they all follow the same behavior, being like robots, or automatics, and in this life you have to learn, develop new skills. As an analyst, I stop to think about everything, to reflect, and I see how young people do things more by impulse than by reasoning every day. That makes me question a lot about what direction the world and our societies are taking in each of the countries that we live. and more questions arise about our future as a planet and as humanity. I would like this to improve.

·

Thanks for the reply! It is quite thoughtful, but I'm not totally sure that the two questions were answered?

·
·

I think yes, or maybe it was not clear enough, in any case could you explain me better than another question I should explain to express myself better?

·
·
·

Sure! The two questions :

  1. What do you know that you think other people know, but they generally don't?

  2. What do you do badly, that everyone else seems to find easy?

Hope that was clear!

·
·
·
·

I understand, responding to what I do wrong that it seems that others do easily, is to communicate, I always struggle with a problem that I have in that sense because I am asperger.

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks! Out of interest, do you find it easier to communicate on online channels? Like steemit?

·
·
·
·
·
·

Removing the problem that affects me, yes, I find it easy to communicate, but I also see that there is a lot of ignorance on the part of the people on how to do it, I think it is the job of all of us to inform the people, and of course the leaders and those who have more followers to make it known. from my side I always explain what I can, but what is your opinion? I would like to know it.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

My thoughts on communication?

It is an incredibly undervalued skill that perhaps needs to be taught better in general. The principles of clear and rhetorical argument could be more widespread.

On the other hand, communication with no substance is also a problem. Some of the best communicators have surprisingly little to listen to!

Assumption :
Everyone wants to be happy.
Even though this is generally true, some people find their comfort in being upset, angry, depressed. We create a habit of familiarity event though its not consciously what we desire. Also that happiness can mean many different things to different people, culture, religion and societies. I have seen it in some of my clients that FIGHT the process of being happy as they have become chemically addicted to the thoughts of an unhappy nature and FEAR losing that.

Difficult to comprehend
Political/Religious/Racial Bias at the expense of Humanity.
As I have travelled, lived and worked in many different countries around the world and all but 1 continent. I have seen different groups be anti/against/mean/cruel etc against someone or group that is different to them even though they expound words and thoughts that are hypocrisy to what they will allow for themselves, their friends or those in the same group mindset as they are. Even when these actions go against basic humanity. This is bewildering sadness, and I know it is a learned behavior from a conditioning of upbringing. But it constantly shocks me when I see it as its seems so primeval when we are such a modern world.

·

I think I would identify with both your answers here. Often people don't realise they have all the ingredients for happiness, especially in the first world! Yes, and the hypocrisy of 'tribal' groupings is bizarre beyond belief...

·
·

True, and the tribal beliefs are often unrealized that they are a belief, not actually a Fact. The ability to step out of the moment and observe from an external unemotional aspect is a characteristic we can all benefit from.

Something I know which seems to catch people out is that traditional Lemsip is just two paracetamol in a sachet which is lemon flavoured. It won't shorten the duration of your cold.

Something that I can not get my head around is crochet. I have tried a couple of times and it did not end well. Weirdly I do keep wanting to buy crochet needles when I see them in second hand stores.

I thought every one knew the basics of planting a garden.
What I can't seem to get my head around is how to make money on the net. It seems so many are doing so these days but I'm still trying to get a flow happening.

·

Ha, I'm slowly learning the basics! Learning where to put things, so they last longer than one year!

Just by being on Steemit you are earning money on the internet!

·
·

I see great possibility here at Steemit - being new I'm still trying to figure things out. I think a smart move for me right now would be to actually invest in some steem and convert it to steempower to get more for my efforts, agree?

·
·
·

No, hold off on that for the moment, unless you are going to invest a significant amount.

Your account has a 15 SP delegation (in brackets) to assist your bandwidth access to the chain. This initial helping delegation decreases so that the total is 15. So, it is best at the beginning to make use of this delegation by not investing immediately until after you are above 15. Use this time to learn and grow, and keep the earnings as liquid Steem/SBD. Make comments and gain a following, use Discord and join communities.

I suggest heavily looking at @dustsweeper and then @steembasicincome as your first investments for your first Steem/SBD. First dustsweeper then SBI.

Feel free to contact me again if you want more advice! I'm on Discord as well.

I thought I knew what cute was, until I saw your goats. ;-}

I can not for the life of me wrap my head around the idea that a circle has 360 degrees of the same size, to me it just does not add up. There will always be a gap at the last degree. Either that or there really is an end to pii.

·

Haha! Thanks, for a valid entry, I would need the other part of the question!

PS: the goats are courtesy of @ryivhnn

Got it. Edited, and added.

·

Thanks! ... and that is why the degrees measurement is a silly one! Using radians is much more logical!

Everyone knows that steemit is a 7 day durations pay out
But i still don't get why peopke nver upvote the good stuff posted by new comer but upvote some but not all irrevalant post (even good morning )of the above 50 level steemian

·

Thanks for dropping by and commenting. I'm not sure you have answered the questions directly?

  1. What is that you know that you think everyone else knows (but tends not to)?

  2. What is it that other people seem to know that you don't? (or find difficult to understand)

I assumed that people knew that clean air, clean water and clean soil are essential for a healthy life.

I was wrong.

I have assumed that people would know that peace, love, unity and respect are prerequisites for a happy life.

I was wrong.

I assumed that humans know that erring is human.

I wasn't wrong.

I am a human... :-)

·

Thanks for dropping by, for a valid entry, you also need the second question.

What is it that you think everyone else knows but you don't (or struggle to understand)?

·
·

What I actually don't understand and maybe never will (and what I think everyone else knows) is:
Why do humans not change their behaviour immediately if they know that they are erring?

·
·
·

That baffles me too! Force of habit and the ability to deceive ourselves to justify whatever we do...

First of all, thank you very much for the SBI share, @bengy!


I am very grateful for these posts that help each of us to reflect and look inside.

Here my thoughts:

  • I thought everyone knew that 𝗅𝗂𝖿𝖾 𝗂𝗌n't 𝖺 𝗐𝖺𝗋 but 𝖺 𝖦𝖺𝗆𝖾, 𝗐𝗁𝖾𝗋𝖾 𝗐𝗁𝖺𝗍 𝗒𝗈𝗎 𝖦𝗂𝗏𝖾 𝗒𝗈𝗎 𝖱𝖾𝖼𝖾𝗂𝗏e.

  • What I can't seem to get my head around is why most of us are living completely distant from reality, from what it really is.


A friendly hug to all from @amico! ;)

·

No problem! Thanks for coming back!

That is really interesting, a war does imply that it is just a struggle to get ahead, whatever the cost. Whereas a game is about the fun of playing! That is an interesting way to look at it.

Hard to say about reality! We all perceive it differently, and yet we all think we have the real one!

Hard to think of something that everyone assumes to know of,

The best I can think of is an abstract idea like Love because it comes in all sorts of forms from self love to love to other people, animals, ideas, and even inanimate objects.

But there are some people who don;t understand the feeling of love and it can have so many factors on why from how they were raised, if they were a science or mental experience or they were just unlucky.

This contest has been placed in the Steemgigs Contest Channel which has over 5000 members and will be presented in a compilation post on the weekly Talk with Terry Show is every Sunday 12:00 AM Manila Time/ 16:00 GMT 0 Time Zone.
I will endeavor to join all contests left there or at least make a small upvote and add on the compilation post.

Thanks, I like to have a question that makes people think a bit! It makes it interesting to read the comments too!

But you make a good point, that there are people that don't understand the concept of love.

On assumed knowledge:

I never really had time to assume (random) people knew stuff, so most of the time I flat out ask if a person knows something before I even go and discuss a topic. Not because I know it all, but because I rather be on level with someone that knew what I was going to stutter out, then to feel like I am saying something alien to someone. Heck most of the time I simply ask "you understand?" to see if they're level with me and that I am level with them.

Of course this is where I draw the line with my acquaintances in the same field as me. If I had to depend my life on an acquaintance, I will be here praying and assuming that they know what they're doing. Of course, it's also because I don't want to annoy people and make them feel like I am being inquisitive and distrusting of their credentials. So I don't bother to ask - lest I know something that is going to be labor intensive and I have to ensure it's done correctly and pronto.

So you could say that I am assuming their knowledge here, and, in every right, that can be the case. But I feel like it's more socially awkward to ask a person, in your field, if they know what they're doing if they've been in the biz for a long time and/or it's a relatively minor task that no one can possibly screw up. But that's probably I assume that being veterans in the field for so long that they know every lingo and protocol there is to be known.

On knowledge I lack:

I simply cannot fathom how people like my voice, and, secondarily, how people know I am being too loud when I cannot hear myself being such.

Truly the mystery of some Divine being, I wonder how people can fathom to like my voice. Let me rephrase what I had said: I despise how my recorded voice to all Heck, I dislike my accent and how it doesn't match my voice coming out of my mouth. It makes me wonder how it's even possible, albeit I believe that one coming out of my mouth is making so many echos in my head that it sounds pleasant. Going with that, because the same conditions that generated the voice I like isn't there for the recorded voice, it sounds different and I despise it. Still I can't imagine how people like it regardless.

Unto the second tangent - people seem to think that I am too loud a lot of the time when it sounds room level. Like, how? I get it that I probably shouldn't blast my ears away to music before having a regular conversation, but ears should adjust overtime to hear people better and, more importantly, to make it possible to hear myself better. But I believe it be plagued with the same problem before: how I input my voice is not the same as its output. I can sound normal, to me myself, because of how my body echos my voice and make it sound normal. But to others, because the voice doesn't get noise isn't exactly reproduced in the same conditions and has to be reproduced in open air, that it sounds louder than it does to me. But who knows, I don't screw up with audio tech and I won't speak on their behalf here.

·

Thanks for the great answer! Great that you don't assume people know things (unless they are in their own field of expertise!)!

I also hate the sound of my own voice, and as a musician, I'm often not keen to hear my own performances... not necessarily because they might be bad or anything, but because they always sound different to what I expect!

·
·

Oh my lordy, I ain't alone! People to hate their voices! Haha, but yeah it kinda sucks having this feeling.

·
·

Same boat here, I usually cringe when I hear my own voice, and usually think is my accent really that bad....

I don't really think I'm an expert in many fields but I do enjoy Physics, math, and music. Just an observation I've made, people who are good at math tend to do well with music. I have a saying music is just math with emotion.

Ok for something most people don't know or realize, an Am7 chord is just a C chord with an A note added.

Something I struggle with, understanding that most people are social creatures and not always logical. People doing things that just don't make sense to me, most of it for social reasons. Like renting a house or apartment while driving a 35 to 60,000 dollar car. Most people just accept that that is OK, I just can't seem to get my mind to the point that social status is more important than being wise with what you have.

·

Ha ha, I'm going to quibble a little on the cord, just because it is my area! Most modern classical and other musicians would definitely agree with you. That in practice the chords are the same. However, I specialise in a field of music before the equalisation of all the semitones (and this harmony) and in that case I would say that the functions of the chords a minor 7 or c with a 6th are functionally different, and in an era of non equal times, sounds different as well..

However, I am around 200 years out of fashion!

I also have the same thoughts as you on your second answer! I see lots of people with crazy expensive cars in neighbourhoods where it shouldn't be possible. On the other hand, it is out of context, so maybe there is a reason why it happens that I don't know...

·
·

Ok. I completely agree that they are different, and have different applications. The addition of the A to a C adds a lot of dynamics, especially when substituteing for the G in the lower end.

·
·
·

Ha, it's just me being a music nerd!

Interesting questions. I whenever I encounter an issue I always try to go around the issue in many angles. Like for example, you get to a door that is suppoed to not be locked, you turn the knob clockwise and it won't open. What I'd do is try turn it on the opposite direction, if it sill won't work I'd try to pull or push on it. I thought everyone would do the same, but I realised a lot of people just keep doing the same way as they usually do and if that does not work they don't try a different way. It's probably because I'm a developer and in order to fix a bug we need to test things from different avenues.

On the other side, what I can't get to do is doing chit chat during social events. I like to attend and listen, but rarely discuss myself unless I'm with someone that knows a bit about the few topics I can discuss about: programming, photography, gardening, worm farming etc... I spend so much time concentrating on just few topics and ignore all the rest. So when discussions veer into things like politics... I'm off. I see a lot of people who can chat about just anything, I just can't do that.

·

Thanks for the answers but unfortunately this contest closed a few days ago at payout. The new question is here:
https://steemit.com/newbiegames/@bengy/steembasicincomegiveawayidlequestions-j8wqivyb1f

But I also understand your trying new solutions. I have a similar thing with locked doors and keys. Often they can be a bit sticky, and I like to jiggle and turn slowly to feel out what is happening before opening. Other people will just brute force the key....

I don't mind one on one chats, but as soon as there is a group, I feel like jumping out the windows!

Gute Frage! Ich weiß viel über Laserdrucker / Kopierer, aber nicht andere. Viele Male rufen die Leute die Tonertinte an, obwohl der Toner trocken ist und die Tinte nass ist.
