This forum, has been tamed.

He's not entirely wrong, although its more a case that we are dormant.

That's not dead which can eternal lie.

In terms of group projects being completed, maybe, but individually it seems like people have been pretty active doing their own shit, and there are a number of group projects that are still in the incubation stage. So, I can't agree that the board is dormant.

And then invariably, they try to defend their laziness and ignorance as being "nonconformist" or "counterculture", while doing a childish let's-play-pretend that anybody who actually puts the heavy time and effort into understanding the nitty-gritty mechanics of psychology, politics, communication, and science are establimentarian shills, which is when they start throwing out the accusations "grayface!" and "scientism!"

Nasty little wanna-be fascist bootlickers.

However, I am seeing a rise in “Madness due to non-conformity”. A rise in people who are deemed “mad” because they simply do not accept the ever narrowing definition of what society deems as “acceptable”.

This kind of intellectual wankery make sit hard to take you seriously. You sound like you're trapped in the 19th Century and re-creating psychology from scratch. It's not clever, it just sounds like it's supposed to be.

"Madness due to non-conformity" is just about the stupidest thing I have read in a while, and Ron Paul's alt won't STFU, so that's saying something.

Nailed it. These lazy little tittyfucks are the kind who think that just spouting rAnDoM ideas and thinking real hard about stuff can take the place of discipline, research, and work.

If you say it out loud, it's shorthand for "please punch me in the face".

A spell of evocation really.

Which is the weakest spell school. Tisk Tisk.

I don't quite understand the fixation on the concept of memes. I've read people talking like spreading a meme is equivalent to casting a spell. Is it just dreams of relevance?

Yeah, pretty much, by people who are either too stupid or too hung  up on occultism to realize that the spread of information is a well-studied field and that the word "meme" was coined by Richard Dawkins in 1976 as an analog of the "gene" concept of spreadable unit of information. There are a lot of books on the topic, but it's my guess that next to none of the pinheaded adolescents squeaking about memes have ever cracked one.

My voice is killing me after all that streaming yesterday.  I don't know how these "pro-streamers" do 10 hour stints or whatever.
Hydration and warming up, also whole throat is muscle, make it buff, inject steroids, swallow nails.

Chew broken glass for breakfast just to be mean. And starbursts. I use lots of starburst fruit chews. You know why they are so juicy? The chemicals citric acid (you fucking moron) in the candy are a natural irritant and your mouth makes massive amounts of saliva in an attempt to dilute the irritant. I suggest cutting a fruit chew into fourths and eating only a little when you pause from time to time. Helps to flatten it out ahead of time.

Yes. Really.

It's a rip-off of vagina cheese, and honestly, from a microbiological viewpoint, it's just a stupid and pointless gimmick.

"You need to actually DO something" says the random 4chan do-nothing turd to a bunch of people who are pursuing graduate degrees while actively engaged in activism in their communities and churning out creative projects.


Show me the book your kekistanis wrote.

As a kind of dialogue piece it may work both ways, I'd push disdain against your optimism kind of thing.

If I could request a split from a mod that can be bothered I'll see what I can do, if that's OK with you?

That sounds great to me!

On the plus side, I suspect with a bit of mangling and expansion between our comments there, there's a decent big words to be had.

I could definitely see this being massaged into something readable... but I'm not sure whether it would be particularly inspiring. It would be nice if we could create something that inspires people to put their trust in people who are smarter to them and have dedicated their careers to making life better for everyone.

And sincere condolonces Nigel, Alzheimer's  is fucking horrible.

I console myself by thinking that in a few hundred years whats left of humanity will mock this era mercilessly for spending so much time, money and effort on say, sports, compared to dealing with, for one thing, diseases. 21C - Advanced enough to know better, still too dumb to bother.

No shit! We are fucking IDIOTS. One of the most infuriating  things is that there is some evidence that Alzheimers may have a root that is strongly influenced by human behavior, but we don't know what it is. Because humans are pretty much barely above dog-level intelligence, it is hard to get funding to study anthropogenic roots of disease.

I've said for a while that if 10% (FFS, even 1%) of football transfer fees or Hollywood film budgets was mandatory to be put to medical research/care, the average life expectancy would probably be past 100 by now. And that's just looking at the past 30 odd years. Instead we let this shit continue because big explosions and paying morons millions to kick a ball is apparently a better use of resources.

Dog level seems generous. A lot of people I encounter wouldn't rate above a fucking goldfish. Hells, more than a couple of posters here would lose a battle of wits against your average carp. You know who you are. Actually due to dunning Kruger you probably don't, you fucking idiots.

Goldfish do at least have rudimentary problem-solving skills.

But seriously, dog problem-solving and reasoning can be estimated to range from about 60-85 on an IQ scale, taking into consideration that dogs have almost none of the cortex that predicts future outcomes and so can't plan ahead at all. IQ is based on a normal distribution with a human average of 100, the distribution mean. Below 85 is considered cognitively impaired, above 115 is considered intellectually gifted. That's one standard deviation in each direction. Most of the people here are one to two standard deviations above the mean, as far as I can tell, with maybe a couple people who are more than two.

Roughly 78% of people are within one standard deviation from the mean. That's what we're dealing with. Not to sound like an elitist prick, which is an easy hole to fall into when discussing reasoning skills, but the general lack of intellectual reasoning ability in the majority of the population means that we will probably never, ever get even the small fraction of funding for science that could significantly improve the lives and health of everyone, because sportsball is fun.

I'd argue it's not just privilege in action, if Meunster is to be believed about his Jewish heritage. I'm sure there's a word for it, but its the thing where women say they're "not like other girls" and ally themselves with sexist men. "Uncle Tom" behavior in black people. There is always an appetite among the oppressors or would-be oppressors for allies among the groups they want to "keep in their place," and the promise of being counted among the "good" blacks/jews/women/whatever is enough for some to fall for it.

So, a little internalized antisemitism to go with the privilege of being treated like a human being because he passes for white.
