[GalFisk] Safety First

Postby GalFisk » Sat Oct 28, 2017 4:04 pm

Because I like the unsafe type, I dislike the safe type.
But the reason for this has nothing to do with it being safe.

It = a tangible object? An intangible one? An object that is meant to be used? Unsafe = which can cause the death of the user? That can injure? That can provoke damages to something else? That is financially risky?

Are there many types of "it"? Just two types?
Is the safety of one type mainly determined by its shape? Something more in the safer type? Something less with respet to the unsafe type?

If you like one type it is not possible that you like also the other type? That is the fact that you like one type automatically excludes the possibility that you like the other type? Are they in contrapposition?

It = a tangible object? This. An intangible one? An object that is meant to be used? Yes. Unsafe = which can cause the death of the user? That can injure? That can provoke damages to something else? All of the above. That is financially risky? No.

Are there many types of "it"? Noish. Just two types? They can all be divided into two types.
Is the safety of one type mainly determined by its shape? No. Something more in the safer type? Something less with respet to the unsafe type? No to both, just different.

If you like one type it is not possible that you like also the other type? No, it's entirely possible to like both. That is the fact that you like one type automatically excludes the possibility that you like the other type? So no. Are they in contrapposition? No.

Does the U (unsafe) type appeal more to you just from an esthetic point of view? From the experience it provoke? For the specific use you do with it? Do you use it in the way it is meant to be used?

Does the object concern an hobby? Entertainment? Is it sold on Amazon? If so under which category: sport? Technology? Books? House? Kitchen? Cds? May I invoke a new type of list like "the Amazon categories" list?

since it's a galfisk puzzle I guess I have a reputation...
Is skydiving relevant? Are fireworks relevant? No to both.

Does the U (unsafe) type appeal more to you just from an esthetic point of view? Correct. From the experience it provoke? No. For the specific use you do with it? Yes. Do you use it in the way it is meant to be used? Yes.

Does the object concern an hobby? Yesish. Entertainment? No. Is it sold on Amazon? Yes. If so under which category: sport? Technology? Books? House? Probably here.
Kitchen? Cds? May I invoke a new type of list like "the Amazon categories" list? Don't know how to see the categories on the mobile website.

well it doesn't matter don't worry :)

So is it meant to be used (mainly) in kitchen? Garden? Bedroom? Bathroom?
Can it be considered a tool like a kitchen knife? I was thinking of S = a dull knife and U = sharp knife?

Is it something electronical?
If not the latter...safe = safe in general or something that is "made" safer for children mostly? (E.g. laminated socket...)

well it doesn't matter don't worry :) No worries.

So is it meant to be used (mainly) in kitchen? Possibly. Garden? Less likely but not impossible. Bedroom? Bathroom? Possibly both.
Can it be considered a tool like a kitchen knife? No. I was thinking of S = a dull knife and U = sharp knife? No.

Is it something electronical? S is, U is not.
If not the latter...safe = safe in general or something that is "made" safer for children mostly? (E.g. laminated socket...) Safe in general.

Is it something that can be moved from a room to another? Or is it something that should remain fixed in one room without being moved? Can it be considered an appliance? Sonething for house cleaning? Connected to the hygiene of the house? Heating of the house(e.g. fireplace)? Cooling of the house (air conditioner vs fan?)? Lightning? Safety of the house (a dog vs an alarm xD)?

Can S stop automatically in case of something happening? Is the fact that S is electronical the thing that mainly determines S's safety? Have S sensors? If so are S's sensors capable of knowing weather sonething is wrong? If so because they are capable of capturing smells? The rising temperature? The rising pressure?

Is its safety determined mostly by its capacity to avoid fires? Gas leaks? Smoke leaks? Injures like cuts? Injures like burnings? Poisoning?
By its precision in measuring temperature (e.g. thermometer)/pressure/others?

S is electronjcal = it displays a number/numbers? It authomatically do something periodically (e.g. a perfume for the house which authomatically is spread periodically)? It has lights?

A lamp? A mirror? Has U fire? Or it simply does not have a system to avoid fires?

Those candles who enlight for instance an image which they have on the "body" of the candle vs an electronic version of it? E.g. in halloween a pumpking with a light in inside vs a pumpkin with a candle in inside.. somwthing like that?

Relevant the smell of the candle? The shape of the candle? Has the candles holes? Is the candle put somewhere? Is the main intent of the candle and of its electronical correspondent the same? A decorative one?

Those candles who enlight for instance an image which they have on the "body" of the candle vs an electronic version of it? This type of candle is often used like this. E.g. in halloween a pumpking with a light in inside vs a pumpkin with a candle in inside.. somwthing like that? Could be, but doesn't have to.

Relevant the smell of the candle? No. The shape of the candle? No. Has the candles holes? No. Is the candle put somewhere? It might be. Is the main intent of the candle and of its electronical correspondent the same? Yes. A decorative one? Yes.

Yope - the electric type that I dislike imitates some specific types of wax candle.

Does it imitate a specific aspect of a wax candle? Its texture? Flickering flame? Dripping wax? The amount of light it gives off? The amount of heat it gives off?

Do you dislike the fake candles because the flickering is not convincing? or, because they fail to imitate some other aspect of wax candles that you like? such as the smell?

SPOILER
I know very well how and why real candles flicker. I've yet to see an electronic version that looks anything close to natural. And it wouldn't be that hard to do either, it's just that they don't care.

Good work!
