    This album has very calming music even (or perhaps especially?) if you don't know the backstories, summarized from the link below:

    Our latest record ‘Departure Songs’ is inspired by failed, yet epic and honorable journeys or events throughout history where people have done extraordinary things for the greater good of those around them, and the progress of the human race itself. Each song has its own story and is a soundtrack to that story. The songs are a celebration of lives lived and lost.
    Album Artwork Commentary

    The first track, A Gallant Gentleman, is about Lawrence Oates, an antarctic explorer who (ineffectively) sacrificed himself to buy his companions more time; the second one, Bogatyri, is dedicated to three vitally important clean-up workers in the wake of the Chernobyl disaster who died from extreme radiation exposure. The third, The Last Dive of David Shaw, deals with the eponymous dive, in which Shaw attempted to rescue a prior diver's body from a particularly tricky cave, only to succumb to the same fate in the end. The final, two-split, song is about the Challenger explosion and has a long sequence about dreams underscored with sampled speeches.

    That's a neat (and simple at that, good) approach for when you have an existing instance and account, https://shadowfacts.net/2019/reincarnation/ kinda expands on this and builds a minimal AP server right into the blog. Might be an interesting read!

    I copied over your expression and looked into the build, scrolling up in the output a bit I found why make failed:

    /build/source/matc/src/str.c: In function 'str_sprintf':
    /build/source/matc/src/str.c:85:5: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security]
       85 |     sprintf(str_pstr, fmt);
          |     ^~~~~~~
    cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
    

    Nix by default enables some hardening options, you can disable the specific one causing this error by adding hardeningDisable = [ "format" ]; to your mkDerivation arguments.
    Obviously there's always one more problem. This time, it was

    In file included from /build/source/build/ElmerGUI/Application/ElmerGUI_autogen/UVLADIE3JM/moc_convergenceview.cpp:9,
                     from /build/source/build/ElmerGUI/Application/ElmerGUI_autogen/mocs_compilation.cpp:5:
    /build/source/ElmerGUI/Application/src/convergenceview.h:55:10: fatal error: qwt_compat.h: No such file or directory

          |          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    compilation terminated.
    

    You already had correctly specified qwt as a dependency, but for some reason the qwt package doesn't include that particular header. So I used nix-locate qwt_compat.h to find out that it's present in the qwt6_qt4 package. Replace it and your project should build correctly!

    A histogram's a plot that just shows how often a single value (often binned into groups like 0..10, 10..50, 50..200 etc) appears in a data set. So for a single user you'd have a bar chart, with bars that are "amount of comments posted X time after the one before it", with Xs of for example 10m, 1h, 3h, 6h, 1d, 1w, …
    Getting the intervals should be fairly easy using the user comment pages.

    You got the ands right :p The idea for #2 is: Given a top level comment with x votes, how many replies does its thread have?

    Average time between comments and a reply to them being written and thread size vs top comment vote count would be nice.

    Brief reply because I'm busy right now (and thus haven't read your linked articles yet), but the methodology of the original "rapid onset gender dysphoria" study is deeply flawed. It was an online survey among parents — not the actual teens involved or their physicians or psychiatrists, conducted on three websites with rather telling names like 4thwavenow, transgender trend, and youthtranscriticalprofessionals [link to study]. Because of this, the journal asked the author republish her findings, with an extended discussion on possible biases, which the original didn't include. There are some more insightful comments on this ~lgbt post talking about another study evaluating the original study in a similar vein, especially @mftrhu's.

    It's basically the final official layer of the social security net, which by design provides for survival ("existence minimum") and no more, which makes cutting it, as we've seen, arguably inhumane.
    To receive it, you need to regularly divulge all sorts of personal and financial data and participate in what amounts to job hunt LARPing. So, not quite "universal", I guess.

    I could ask Kat, who made that demographics thingy originally, if she still has the results lying around (I vaguely remember a spreadsheet), but Deimos can query the database and give us potentially more accurate information since the userbase has grown quite a bit since the first one. I still have the link to the typeform results of the second one, but it 500's currently.
