This sort of sounds like an anti-Pinealist rant, but directed at us

except I have a hard time actually connecting it with anything that we actually do.

Your name brings to mind how I can (and will, given half a chance) rebuilt civilization out of the back deck of my ancient Volvo.
Now that sounds like an article for Intermittens.

Actually, that sounds like part of an entire Intermittens theme.

Now, being that I'm an environmental studies major and all, I probably ought to have an opinion on this.

I got nothing. There's so many howling monkeys on both sides that I'm starting to think that global climate trends are not all that different from economic climate (take a shot!) trends: nobody actually knows wtf is going on in its entirety, but a whole lot of people sure get off on making sweeping generalizations.

Which, really, is understandable behavior for monkeys. In general, there's three possible outcomes:
1) The doomsayers were right, and we're totally fucked.
2) Change is happening, but we can take steps to mitigate its impact. Shit will still happen, but it won't ruin civilization.
3) All of this was a big fat load of bullshit and nothing significant is really going to happen, at least not in our lifetimes.

Regardless of what specific arguments the talking heads and self-appointed experts make, they still have odds of one in three of being able to claim they were "right." Not bad, really.

If there's money and notoriety to be gained in the meantime by hyping the shit out of your position on the issue, why not? Fame, money, and one in three chance of being in the category of "People Who Were Right All Along" in the history books sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Also, I really agre with being wary of the "Survival" marketing tag.  It can mean anything from a bush pilot's kit with water / food / snubnose .50 cal to a "Rambo"  knife so packed with features it's virtually useless for anything knife - like.

I used to shit a fair amount of hate when I used MySpace regularly. Something about it triggers my hate gland.

Lovely hate ya got there, Suu.

Principia Discussion / Re: Typo in the PD?
« on: January 24, 2009, 01:56:36 am »
I've been thinking about making another version of the pd (another one?!? yes, stfu) that has lots of fluff taken out and i will keep an eye out for typo's too.

What kinda fluff? All the additional forewords and afterwords?

Is it wrong that I didn't particularly care for the GIANT freaking foreword at the beginning of Syn's version?

TED is pretty awesome. I usually feel intellectually enriched after most of them (but not all).

It's okay LMNO. I still think our collaborative "Conformity: Small Minds Think Alike Too" poster is funny.
