I love how the one on the right actually manages to cross dinopr0n with midgetpr0n  :lulz:

Hairs on the back of my neck! Somehow reminded me of When the Wind Blows

The bit that got me was the - wavelength longer than the observable universe - part. It's like a loophole in the laws of physics  :eek: 8) :evil:

There are no loopholes in physics.  Just weirder phenomena than we specified when we placed the order.


Just a friendly reminder from the universe that our version of the rulebook is not yet comprehensive. 8)

Never underestimate the programmability of human beings. Most of them seem to actually prefer it to thinking. Homosapiens huge fucking brain has high energy requirements. Maybe natural selection is biased in favour of those who only use it for emergencies?  :lulz:

You could also quite reasonably question what credentials the man actually has to hold the office that he does.

Credentials? I'd figured the only credentials you need to hold any office is having fucked the right pig?

It really is a challenge to talk about "my personal path to being a less shitty me" without disparaging the shittier version of yourself, and by extension the shittier versions of people you see around you.

Excellent point. I am guilty of this although, hopefully, less so than in the past. I try to remove the value judgement from the equation and especially any anger this value judgement may cause. Hard to do sometimes but I have to remind myself that it isn't the other persons fault that they're trapped inside a pernicious reality tunnel, choking on dumb memes and sneezing bad signal. Personality can become infected just the same as biological machinery.

If you wouldn't blame someone because they were infected with aids, why is it okay to blame them because they're infected with Ayn Rand or Adolph Hitler? People are just dumb apes (me too) it's not really their fault.

Also - holding other people up to ANY standard is a hiding to nowhere. Best you can hope for is to live up to your own standards

Something about Cameron's dad mentioned on news at 6.

Sigh.

There is nothing so amazing as watching 80% of FB (it seems) arguing against getting a raise.


That communism memebomb the US dropped back in the 50's caused a lot of brain damage. We're still breathing in the fallout. It also left an unsecured port in the thinking mechanism. I've seen everyone from men in the pub to politicians using it to lead an audience by the nose.

I think you're right - needs a bit of work but you seem to have the bases well covered

There's irony in the fact that, whilst futurists and transhumanists are speculating on the viability of alternative cognitive substrates, it's already happened. Half of humanity have offloaded most of their thinking and reasoning to facebook and twitter  :lulz:

:mittens: That's so close to home I'm wondering now if you're my Tyler Durden. Can someone check the IP's ITT to see if they're the same  :tinfoilhat:
