What real world work can be done in Photoshop but not GIMP? I'm not trolling, this is a serious question
For me, the major shortcoming is adjustment layers. In Photoshop, you can apply a non-destructive layer/filter over your image to modify parameters such as brightness, contrast, colour levels, etc. You can then directly edit your image "below" this filter, e.g. cropping it. You can then modify the adjustment layer later.
In GIMP, once you modify brightness or contrast, that's it. You can't come back and remove/change these setting later. This has been a requested feature for at least 14 years.
Mitosomes in Giardia, Entamoeba, and Microsporidia represent the most extreme cases of mitochondrial reduction known to date, and yet they still contain recognizable mitochondrial protein translocases and usually an ISC system. The specific absence of all these mitochondrial proteins in the genome of Monocercomonoides sp. indicates that this eukaryote has dispensed with the mitochondrial compartment completely.
I'd replace that with the second wheel.
The part you are missing is that the left in the US is often further to the right than the right in most other countries
Absolutely! This site has a good overview of political leanings, showing the current trend towards the right/authoritarian.
BTW, you call chemistry "basic"? Why is chemistry of any practical use to anyone but anyone but a chemist? I can't recall a single instance in my life when I had to apply any sort of chemistry-based knowledge.
Among other things, knowledge of chemistry allows you to reject homeopathy and accept vaccinations.
