Incidentally, speaking of AI, if you don't want your child's RI (real intelligence) and intellectual growth stunted, here are some vid exposees on sources of mercury and how it is toxic to brain cells;
smoking teeth poison gas
Mercury-silver amalgam dental fillings should be replaced with white resin or tooth caps.

What's In A Flu Shot
I'm not against vaccines, just the toxic and totally unnecessary mercury (thimerosol) additive and a few other toxins, which could easily be replaced with safer preservatives for a slight cost increase.

All science that leads to conclusions that would negatively affect the bottom lines of pharmaceutical companies is complete and total BS. A hoax. It's necessarily fake. If it were real science, it would support the profit motive of the "health" industry... /s

Don't ever expect to have any kind of a rational discussion on this topic. It won't happen. I illustrated that in the "Peer review" thread with some help. ;)

Here's a collection of fascinating animated 3-D animations by Eugene Khutoryansky,  explaining natural laws, for instance; Eletromagnetism - Maxwell's Laws vid.
It's great stuff!

But as for quantum mechanics, I also found this web site supposedly debunking the wave-particle duality paradox;

quote: "The wave-particle duality paradox of quantum mechanics is resolved here."

My daughter got back from school one day a short while back, and proceeded to make and play with some oobleck.
I was fascinated, never having heard of it before.
It vaguely reminded me of what was called "silly putty", but it wasn't the same thing by any means.

^ hah, it's a variety of dulse.
That used be commonly sold at the seaside in Ireland. I'm not sure how it was prepared - I think boiled and half-dried, but not sure. Chewy, tasted of the sea, but strong tasting too, often enough with the odd baby mussel attached :-)
I liked it.
Tried some packaged dried stuff lately, it wasn't the same (I didnt like it).

(see attachment in previous post)
How to bid farewell to Flash

I didn't understand the following parts from the article:

Quote
If you don’t want to give up Flash-required sites on your desktop or laptop, good news: You probably can’t uninstall Flash completely anyway. Google’s Chrome and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer both include their own versions of Flash that update automatically.

Quote
In IE, you have to go deeper. Click the gear-shaped Settings icon and select “Manage add-ons,” right-click “Shockwave Flash Object” in that dialog, select “More information” and then click the “Remove all sites” button.

I didn't succeed in locating "Shockwave Flash Object" in IE's "Manage add-ons" dialog.

What am I missing?

Did you tell it to show All add-ons?

Yes...all I saw there was XML DOM Document.  Just verified it's IE11.

Hmm...

Looks like it's part of the MS Flash offering:
