But then i remember that humans are basically chimps, and so I see this resulting in hierarchy and a game of oneupsmanship and social status seeking within the group which leads to resentment and table-flipping as people get frustrated with the rules of who can speak about what and when. What do you guys think? Am i missing something here?

That's my take. Whilst the reason may seem logical on the surface, it's actually bullshit masquerading as an excuse to crowbar in some monkey status.

Or it's both logical and necessary and inevitably leads to idiot monkey status things.

Eliminating a mind from a discussion is neither logical or necessary. It's retarded primate posturing all the way down.

So nothing scientific makes us different, that's fair enough. Something I can get behind. But there's an implication in there that we're not different which is patently not the case.

The properties that emerged from the tiny tweak our particular strand of ribonucleic ticker tape received made us very different. According to biology we are 97(ish) percent identical to mice. So why didn't mice develop the atom bomb?

You're a snowflake. Get over it  :lulz:

I desperately hope against all hope that those reviews were the result of an amazon employee and some hacked musical xmas card chips  :lulz:

What makes us different from all the other animals is the fact that we ask shit like "What makes us different from all the other animals?"

Can't help thinking we're ahead of the game in that respect.

Giraffes still have the longest necks, tho. Maybe long term that'll turn out to be the more important thing.

So hows the herb out in Scotland?

It's a piss poor, undercured, 90% cabbage and stalk substitute for dried oregano - dipped in diesel and broken glass so it at least does something to you - atrocity of a thing. Id be lost without it, man.
:hippie:

Yeah I get the whole subgenres thing. Happened to metal back in the 80's when it split up into speed and death and thrash and fuck knows all what. Thing is, that shit made at least a bit of sense. You listen to x-metal and there's a family resemblance. Like, yeah, that's metal but goth? What the fuck does the new goth have in common with the old stuff? Like put yourself back in the 80's and show someone marylin manson, britney spears and the london philharmonic orchestra and ask "which one is 21st century goth" I'll be fucked if I could call it.

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Fish: the once and future fast food

I'm rooting for science. There's no fucking way in hell humanity is going to wise up and change a few simple habits. Humanity is way too fucking dumb to do that and by many accounts it's too fkin late anyhow. So either we figure out some funky new technological solution to bring this dying planet back to life or the problem corrects itself.

I'm good either way. We all live happily ever after or I get to take the piss out of a few billion dumbstruck and dying primates who emphatically poo poo'd any plans that prioritised a breathable atmosphere over cheap flights to Tenerife

It was pretty much this, from 8 until 2, five nights a week.


The other three nights were for gay clubs and early 80s music.

The exact echo pedal I was talking about.


Though a couple of nights a month it was this.


See this is the part I could never resolve. How could white zombie and marylin manson be "goth"? That's kinda like if they called basketball "golf"  :eek:
