The John Paul Jones Flag Is neat looking.
Cool story behind it.
Not a fan of any animal abuse.
Poor little dog. Awful pit owner.
The Firth Element. It's called a multi-pass. What's cringe is his covid card is in it. And the cat shit obviously.
Please don't early life The Firth Element for me. Unironically like that movie. Wouldn't doubt it though.

At the time of checking this one had more votes.
You will get that topic eventuality, I promise.
I just voted for genealogy myself for next week.
One of the anti's that make sense.

I'm not a chemistry major I'm sure I'm using the wrong terms. Please educate me.
Yeah I understand the point Fletcher was making and get it's a misnomer.
I don't often think about oil or petroleum. So when I started looking into I found it interesting that we generally call petroleum "fossil fuel" when in reality it seems that not all petroleum comes from organic material. E.g., methane on Mars and Titan. In my opinion calling petroleum "fossil fuel" is fair despite the branding implications. To edit a photo we say Photoshop™. But calling it fossil fuel if it does not derive form organic material does not make sense in my opinion.
My question that I could not find a answer to is simply how much of the oil on Earth comes from a organic material origin vs inorganic material origin. Regardless of political implications it's a interesting question for many reasons.
Suppose you knew the average natural amount of petroleum/oil/natural gas a Earth sized planet would have (with no life on it). Then if you found a object that has more say methane on it then expected for it's size maybe you could say this is a sign of life.
I want to make it clear I don't know if any of that is possible or any math behind this to do this. I'm just making up a example here.
Damnit. It's all about branding. Trust the Science ™.
So petroleum forms naturally from either or both organic (fossil fuel) and inorganic compounds.
But as Fletcher points out in his video we mostly drill for oil deeper then most of these "fossil fuel" deposits would be expected to exit.
So on Earth when we find oil or gas like methane it's a fossil fuel 100%. But when we detect say methane on Mars or elsewhere NO WAY IT WAS FORMED BY LIFE.
It seems this branding of fossil fuel has taken hold as the norm for all the science when it comes to petroleum.
The question that I can't figure out is how much of oil on Earth is a fossil fuel and how much of it is made from inorganic compounds? I'm having a hard time even searching these things since every site and source just says oil = fossil fuel.
Don’t spam. And Rule 5 handshake. Post one of those three again. Your fine.
Bro that's sick.
Someone once told me that a lot of images / memes shared on the internet basically have invisible graffiti on them. And I'm not talking about the meta info.
Tools? Find anything yet?
Christ can't even read this
Should add numpy and itertools
yeah it's been weird we haven been working on it
