Happiness is a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman - or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle.

That I don’t disagree with. But such people will find something/anything to be ‘addicted’ to.  They may develope an addiction to cotton swabs.  This does not make Cotten swabs addictive.

The same with gaming, sex and gambling. Those activities are, themselves, not addictive.

daegog There is nothing inherently addicting about eithe sex or gambling.  Only a lack of self control. 

Claiming either of those as an addiction is right up there with the bullshit argument on the rich kid suffering from affluence.

punko Actually, you can measure things in many differently ways.

You can measure by mass, ignoring volume. Or you can’t measure volumetricly, .  You can measure by temperature, turbidity, density, shear, etc.

Beleive me, working in a research lab many times we would worry about one measurement and disregard others. There’s even these great devices called Volumetric Flasks who’s sole purpose is, despite the misleading name, is to measure by volume alone.

For the sake of this example, specifying volume and sticking with it is perfectly acceptable.

Sorry, Fortnite is not addictive. NO video game is addictive.

Idiots are just unable to control their emotions.

So I just installed a two-channel dashcam two weeks ago (front & rear). Nice to have. May make for a future posting.

monkwarrior While your explanation is spot on, I think you're assuming something not stated.

You take into account that coffee is mostly water. As such the above experiment does not work.  His mistake was using a common solution such as coffee. He's not treating it as a solution, rather as a stand alone substance. 

BUT, take two dissimilar liquids: Water and Oil (for the sake of this we assume the oil is soluble in water).

Two containers: 
Container A 100ml of water
Container B 100ml of oil

Take 5ml (~1tsp) of water out of container A and put in container B.  

Container A is now 95ml of water while container B is 105ml solution of oil/water with 5ml water:  5/105*100 = 4.7619% water.

Stir well.  Now, now matter how much you take out of B it will always be 4.7619% water.

Take 5ml (~1tsp) of water/oil out of container B and add to container A.  Both containers are now 100ml.  That 5ml is 4.7619% water and 95.2381% oil. 

So container A is 4.7619% water, or as it's 100ml is 4.7619ml water.

You added 5ml of Oil/Water that was 95.2381% oil into container A.  95.2381% of 5ml is 4.7619ml.

So container B is 4.7619ml of oil.

Ergo, there is exactly as much oil in the water as there is water in the oil. Which is what his claim was.
