Q: Why can things taste too sweet?

StormblessedMy teachers in school always said that sugar tastes good because in the days of cavemen, things like berries, with lots of sugar, were rare, and it would be good to want to get the energy from them and thus humans evolved to like sugar. This BBC article also says something similar (emphasis mine)...

(Why I was trying to make the article HTTPS)

@Mithrandir Based on my experience with Star Wars (I'm talking movies and books, even if they're officially Legends now, because they at least speak to the milieu) the outcome of such a fight depends way more on tactics and leadership than on the simple raw power numbers. Just as a start.
 
11:24 AM
@DavidW That is a fair point, but I'd think that it's fairly answerable. It's a bit borderline, I think, but IMO it falls on the non-POB side. We'll see how the voting plays out. (I wouldn't pull an Alex for this one if it stays closed.)

mhatrickI am training my pitbull to be my service dog and I want to train him his commands in Klingon. At this point I need words for sit, stay, heal, and a sound comparable to Cesar Milan's " ssttt'. Any suggestions?

This doesn't seem off-topic (it seems bad, but it's translating into a language from an SF work)
Is it useful to post an answer describing how a book is a match if the OP just has a comment "Oh, I found it it's this book"?
 
@Stormblessed yes, which is why one should be very careful about what they flag
@Stormblessed we've already had this discussion ;)
 
I forgot
Like it's not a dupe target
It makes it so hard to search for it if it is a dupe if the answer is just in a comment
 
Basically, yes. But, while you're free to do whatever you want, if you're just going to dump a Goodreads summary, consider making it a Community wiki. If you're going to do more work, like fetching quotes, clips, reviews etc, then have your work rewarded
Putting some extra effort into making an actual answer is better, as you already know for sure it's the right book
 
2:01 PM
@Stormblessed i want to reopen that, because it seems on-topic, but it's also not a good question?
@Mithrandir why is that question off-topic?
What's this about general reference?
 
The close reason? It's deprecated now
 
A lot of questions Movies doesn't like are on-topic here, some of them stupid (like "Who played Luke") but it also seems like they don't like stuff like "How many stormtroopers died in Star Wars Episode VI" or whatever
Is that second one also general reference that it'd close as?
 
I don't think it would but the close reason is deprecated anyway
 
@Stormblessed If you think it's on-topic then vote to reopen.
 
Oh, that's trivia
@Alex But I feel like I'm missing something?
 
2:10 PM
@Stormblessed So?

@Jenayah Not nice.
 
;p
 
3:20 PM
@Jenayah The sites where I have access to review queues have a "skip" button as one of the options.
 
Yup, same here
The thing is that if something goes to queue for being a dupe of question A and is left open, then gets accepted, I think you have to wait some 14 days before a close vote for duping to A is sent to queue
So... That's not optimal. Or one can mod-flag but that's also not how the thing's supposed to work
Ah - if anyone's looking for context here, see the comments here scifi.stackexchange.com/q/212771/98028
 
@Jenayah It didn't occur to me that "skip" might be treated the same as "leave open"...Wht have two different buttons then?
Wht -> Why
 
Skip and Leave Open are different, yes.
What makes you think I said they were the same? :/
 
Well then, if you "Skip", it should just roll around the queue until whether it's really a dupe becomes more settled. Until then, however, it's there to be considered.
 
@Jenayah Only the original voters.
 
3:29 PM
Because you brought up the consequences if it's "left open", which seems like a side issue.
I inferred that you were conflating the two.
 
@Alex one can re-flag even if it got left open? Pretty sure I tried that and didn't work, and I had to mod-flag for it to get duped
@Spencer well... No, not really. If the question is not a dupe, it's not a dupe and should be Left Open, not skipped
 
@Jenayah If you voted then you can't vote again until 14 days (plus the time it takes for the vote to age). But someone else can vote to close the very second after the question was "left open" in Review.
 
Do you mean you'd want reviewers to Skip until the thing is settled?
@Alex yes, but outside review. They can't shoot it into queue again, can they?
Not before someone 14 days.
 
@Jenayah Not sure. Let's scour Meta!
 
Well, I'm pretty sure they can't, 'cause I've got recollection of seeing stuff being Left Open, then close outside review, but lot going to review again. Not particular example though right now... Lemme take a look at the close history
 
3:35 PM
If it parallels Reopen Review than it should be reviewable as soon as the vote ages:
A reopen vote is cast when there are no other active reopen votes on the question. Note that this allows for a single question to be enqueued multiple times, provided all votes age away before another one is cast.
 
For instance scifi.stackexchange.com/posts/212383/timeline got left open, closed outside review, and did not go into review again for being POB.
 
@Jenayah Maybe the last two votes were too quick?
 
I don't think so.
I don't think they'd have sent it back to queue.
 
@Jenayah Well the FAQ doesn't discuss it:
175
A: What are the review queues, and how do they work?

ManishearthWhat is a "review queue"? Review queues contain posts that possibly need community attention, as determined by the system or other members of the community. You are shown these posts, one at a time, and you "review" them. To incentivize reviewing, there are badges awarded for making a high numbe...

 
Time for an edit...
 
3:51 PM
@Jenayah Until you can be certain it's either "a dupe" or "not a dupe"... no need to collapse the wavefunction prematurely
So, for dupe flags that don't have accepted answers "Skip" is the best option until more information comes in.
 
@Jenayah Third-to-last bullet in this answer makes it seem that it does initiate a new review:

A: How do Close Votes and Close Votes Review interact? Aren't Close Votes the same as Close Review votes?

@Alex funny. No recollection of ever seeing it behave that way.
 
@Jenayah It's possible that answer is incorrect...
 
So to answer your earlier question, "Yes"
It's a function of SF&F's special policy about dupes.
 
@Stormblessed It's reopened now.
 
3:57 PM
@Spencer hum... Not really. Sending something to queue in the hope that it doesn't reach a conclusion (leave open or close) is kind of against the goal of review queues.
Especially on SFF, where nothing gets skipped forever in review...
 
@Jenayah There would have to be a time limit...How does the policy cover questioners who don't bother to accept?
It's not as if you can close such a question as unclear.
 
I suck with words... But basically my point is don't flag before both are accepted (on story-id), leave a comment instead. If someone feels the same or differently feel free to chime in
 
@Jenayah Use French.
But I understand what you're saying.
It makes sense.
 
21
A: Closing Story-Ident questions as duplicates (where there's no acceptance)

Valorumstory-identification questions should only be closed as duplicates where both answers are accepted, regardless of the similarity between them. (If the OP posts a "yes this is it" comment, that's as good as an acceptance.) Simple, easy to administer.

 
(Assuming the duplicate policy makes sense in the first place.)
 
4:02 PM
Basically, if OP never comes back, the thing is to be left open forever.
Think of it this way... So far you're only flagging, which just pushes an auto-comment, but once you've reached 3k, flagging as dupe when the dupe-conditions aren't met, even if to "leave it in the queue until further info is given", you'd actually have casted a vote to close on it.
And basically, maybe it's a better phrasing if I say that sending a post to queue is a way to say "hey, in its current form, I think this should be closed. What do you think, fellow reviewers?"
The "current form" (meaning question's content and acceptance) is important, because if closed, it can be reopened afterwards. There's even a mechanism sending dupes to the reopen queue if they got edited.
 
The tag has a bad name
The series is "Wax and Wayne"
It should just be
 
It's fine if you're not completely sure the thing should be closed. That's why there's a review. But if you know the conditions aren't met and thus is a dead-away "leave open" situation... Then flagging isn't the way to go.
 
Basically, the point is that votes/flags for closure are for when the question should be closed, not when it could potentially be closed in the future.
 
Why is it that @Alex be the one with the simple, efficient, clear-cut wording? :P
 
Also is supposed to be used with ? The guidance seems to say not, but all questions have it
 
4:11 PM
But yeah, spot on. What Alex said.
 
@Jenayah Because that will force you to reconsider all your assumptions about me that you hold dear.
 
That plus the dupe policy makes it likely that a lot of dupes will never be identified. Oh well, at least you're not forcing me to like the situation.
 
@Stormblessed no idea. You're the one who read those :P
 
@Jenayah Well they're the same world
 
Also @Stormblessed why apply the books tag on scifi.stackexchange.com/q/95098/98028? Am I missing something...?
 
4:14 PM
@Jenayah Oh, I saw the word "book" and guessed it was the medium, not part of the story i think?
 
@Alex please don't shatter the very base of one of my SE chat snark material :P
 
@Jenayah There should still be enough material left...
 
@Spencer well, yes and no. It's true that a good chunk of likely dupes don't get closed because of the policy, but often users link them together (this guy for instance does an amazing job at it). As for liking the policy, hey, I'm French. I defend the right to rant about policies :D
 
4:49 PM
@Stormblessed Not off topic, more unclear or too broad. "training commands" aren't clearly defined; without a list of words, we're left guessing what the OP wants. People train dogs in different ways; we don't know what exactly what the OP wants here without a list of words to translate.

5:21 PM
@Spencer for the sake of completeness, I can think of two cases where story-id should be close even if not accepted. That is, if the question is an exact re-post of an earlier question (this, for instance scifi.stackexchange.com/q/211166/98028), or if someone posts an updated version of their earlier question, instead of editing it.
In such a case, flag away, while making sure to edit the comment to clarify why you're flagging
 
In both of those cases, one of the questions should be deleted altogether.
 
Yep, but for that, it should be closed first. I mean, you can ask a mod to deal with it to bypass the closing condition, but there's not necessarily need to bother a mod for that
 
Doesn’t the question specify sit, stay, heel, and ssttt?

@Stormblessed capitals were too forceful
@Mithrandir oh, my phone didn’t tell me that
 
@Mithrandir Doesn’t the question specify sit, stay, heel, and ssttt?
 
@Alex yeah, I was confused about that reasoning, too
 
On an unrelated note, while funny, training a dog (especially a pitbull) in a fictional language nobody speaks sounds like a terrible idea.
 
@Alex if it did I missed it
 
5:37 PM
That's just my opinion, but you'd want the dog to be able to take orders from... Whomever might have to interact with it.
 
@Jenayah Nobody speaks Klingon?
@Stormblessed But you’re scared of Mithrandir?
 
Don't be too pedantic... The odds of encountering someone who knows Klingon well enough to handle a pitbull are kinda low ;)
Heck, you even have to know the dog only responds to Klingon first.
 
@Jenayah Isn’t that the point? I can tell my dog to attack you and you can’t tell it to stop.
It’s like being the only one at Hogwarts that speaks Parseltongue when there’s a Basilisk on the loose.
 
I was more thinking about, the owner isn't around (hospitalisation or something), and nobody can get the dog to sit.

5:44 PM
@Jenayah And the owner is supposed to care anout that?
 
Well I'd want to make sure my dog can be treated well and isn't a bother if I can't take care of it for some reason, but that's maybe just me
 
Yeah, just you.
 
It's unreasonable to want your dog to be treated well and not bother others?
 
@Stormblessed as always, if I'm acting silly, just tell me, especially if I'm missing something obvious
 
@Jenayah what if that’s the point?
 
5:58 PM
@Jenayah No, it’s unreasonable to want that more than the ability to make your dog attack without anyone being able to stop it.
 
Like they want to tell their dog to do things in a language nobody knows or they don’t want others to control it
 
(And I’m mostly messing with you.)
 
@Alex mmmmh.
Never get a dog, you.
 
@Jenayah Yes Madame.
 
@Stormblessed sure that sounds fun but the counter side is that nobody can take care of it other than you. If you do care for your dog, that sounds like something you'd want to avoid
 
6:01 PM
Or should that be Madamoiselle?
 
Mademoiselle, yep
I'm not married
 
Is the difference whether you’re married or not?
 
Technically it's supposed to be about marriage but at some point age also comes into play.
French administration is trying to rule out "Mademoiselle" stuff and have every woman called Madame... I don't really care, TBH
 
Well I wouldn’t want to address you in an incorrect manner.

Was Pokémon the first massive "summoning creatures" thing?
Like, summoning stuff is pretty common in fantasy. But to the point that it's summoning unique creatures (or instances of a set of creatures), with it being fairly known in-universe?
 
I honestly don't have enough references to discuss that question. But summoning in fantasy often does not imply an "ownership" relationship, whereas it does in Pokemon. There are other differences, I guess.
(I'm saying this because I wouldn't have said "summoning" for Pokemon, more "capturing".)
