The thought that some 3rd grade software wrote that is creepy as hell.
We don't need skynet, just botnets infected with viral spambots full of truly horrible advice.
Some people will follow any advice given to them on the internet.

Ugh, they think the moon may be a star?!

At least there is an argument for saying that the moon is a planet: The strongest attractive force that acts on the moon is the sun, not the earth.

Though the consensus is that the moon is a natural satellite because the common centre of gravity is inside the primary.

Got it.

It has nothing to do with you as an individual.  I just don't like your kind.
Pixels on a screen posing as Humans?

No.  Humans.  I have extremely good reasons for hating humans...But I don't consider them to be a collection of phosphor dots.  If you think that the people you are talking to are just pixels on a screen, then you are also a wretchedly defective human as well.

Or possibly merely mentally stunted. Children pass through a stage where they are unable to grasp the concept of acting from a distance, or really any sort of theory of mind, so it's possible that people who see other people online as "just pixels on a screen" are just developmentally delayed.
I thought my tongue was in my cheek, but it seems i have bitten it off.
Oh well, at least i cut myself on sharp wits. Just imagine being cut by mere humans. :shudder:

Your whole "too clever to be sincere" schtick isn't clever. FYI. It's tedious, juvenile, grating, and reeks of insecurity. t's also reminiscent of narcissism, wherein the narcissist feels too fragile to allow their true self to show so they create a persona of who they wish they were. It's a strategy that leads nowhere productive, and I hope you get over it because I used to like you.
That was painfully accurate.

It's Cosmo Logic, in which taking the single most destructive possible course of action in your relationship will keep you one step ahead of the enemy, who in  this case is your boyfriend.

DING.

For what it's worth, I have never seen Cosmo in a happy home.

DEATH MATCH: ROMANCE! TWO WILL ENTER, ONLY ONE WILL LEAVE!

I imagine this being a situation in which if she wins, she gets to harvest his gonads and store them under her mantle for future fertilizations, and will feast upon his corpse to feed her growing baby. If he wins, he tears the infant out of her abdomen and learns how to lactate.

 :eek: It occurs to me that nature has used these methods and probably much more that I am blissfully unaware of in the gentle dance of procreation. Humans are getting off light.. mostly.
Angler Fish.
Go on, google it.
Nevermind, got it here for you.

Ducks!

Also, Land snails!

Literate Chaotic / Re: ITT: Original Story Ideas
« on: January 10, 2015, 01:26:05 am »
Those shootings in France yesterday gave me an idea:

A scatological porno movie about mohammed.  I'm not sure of the details, but possibly it includes a scene with Mohammed and either Jesus or Abraham reenacting "Two Girls One Cup", occuring some time after mohammed's wives leave him and become lesbians because his penis is too small.
Hmm, I like the idea but it is not quite funny enough. Your anger is showing through, and getting angry at a provocative act is letting the terrorists win.

Maybe something more like this?

Quote
George RR Martin offers to screen The Interview at his own cinema

Game of Thrones author volunteers his Jean Cocteau cinema in Santa Fe for a screening, after ‘stunning display of corporate cowardice’ from Sony and cinema chains

George R.R. Martin steps up out of principle and - I presume - his earnest love of pissing as many people off as he possibly can.
This made me smile, GRR Martin is a good man.

Land snails are just like a tiny human.
Who looks like a disembodied tongue.
And is covered in mucus.
And has a shell.
The land snail breathes air just like the peoples do and eats with its mouthhole.
It's bottom pair of tentacles are for smelling while the top pair is for crude seeing.
It is however born without ears which makes hearing difficult, impossible really.
They are deaf.
But in all other ways they are exactly like a tiny human being.
Who happens to have a penis next to his face. And a vagina.
Most landsnails are hermaphrodites, meaning they have both mommy parts and daddy parts.
This however does not mean they can self... baby-make.
When they mate  land snails circle around each other. think full-body french kiss, but with more mucus.
As they do this they are looking for opportunities to impale each other with their love darts.
I wish this was a metaphore, but it's not. They actually have love darts, like actual darts. It is crazy. Land snails have a totally different level of kinky. These calcified darts are located in the snails dart sack.  located below the penis. when the dart impales the mate they inhibit spermicidal secretions. Which makes the next part more effective. After a spirited darting the snails insert their penises into eachother's vaginas. And they just hang out. And try not to laugh. Because that might hurt the other snail's feelings. Even if all the junk is right there in your face, it is not nice to laugh.
The snail holds on to the sperm from multiple partners, before fertilizing it's eggs. This makes paternity tests a bitch.
The eggs are then laid into top soil and soon baby snails emerge. Thus completing the spiral of life. See what i did there, spiral?! (Oh god, kill me)
Next time you meet someone attractive and get anxious, just remember: At least you don't have to worry about a dart being shot into your head.
This was blatantly stolen from ZeFrank. by the way.  (I Forgot to give him credit before)

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Dumb Environmental Science Questions

More details for Howl's answer to 2:

The energy we release by combustion is negligible compared to the energy delivered by sunlight.
The amount of sunlight captured by the earth is primarily determined by 2 factors: reflection/absorption ratio of sunlight by the surface, and capture of reflected solar energy by gasses in the atmposphere.
Dark stuff catches more light than light stuff, stuff gets darker if it gets wetter. Deserts (both the sand and the ice kind) reflect very well. This is a limiting factor for heating planets. Until the ice-deserts melt, that is.
Greenhouse gasses are aptly named: they capture reflected energy better than other gasses.
All this means: Heat melts ice-deserts, water in the presence of heat creates clouds, clouds create rain, rain makes the other deserts wetter and thus less reflective. Also, permafrost melts releasing more bad gasses, ocean water stops mixing well (I'm not entirely clear on why that happens) causing the underwater-water to lose access to oxygen. This will do bad things to our interplanetary biodiversity ratings. Alien tourism will come to a screeching halt and our cows, crops, and rednecks will have to go through life relatively unmolested. Area 51 memorabilia will become collectors items and all the Men In Black will undergo retraining to torture smudgy people instead of green people.

So you're agreeing with me?  I don't get it.
Yep, you stated the truth very succinctly. So I tried to give more details to further understanding but then I got distracted by my imagination.
