You should totally sign up to Reddit.

https://np.reddit.com/r/SandersForPresident/ is hilarious right now.

The entire point of running against Clinton was to fight corruption on the part of the DNC and the government. If you're so quick to get back behind that corruption, good luck.

While I wish Bernie had endorsed Trump instead, I feel the wiser option would have just been to publicly state after the convention that he was endorsing nobody.

Looks like I'm voting trump. And don't give me any of this a true Bernie supporter would never vote for trump. It's time to accept this nations fate. Yes, I would love Jill Stein but it's not happening. Anyone but Hilary has my vote and the most likely to defeat her is trump.

bernie sanders has been a man working in the system his entire life. he was never outside of it, he has never fought it. he was controlled opposition and today he revealed his true colors. He cultivated you like little voter plants and now he is giving you to his master to harvest.

Endorsing her shows that he isn't the man of principles and conviction he ran his entire campaign based off of. All I'm saying is he has proven he is just another politician that will default to toting the party line just like EVERYONE else. He is not the courageous man who will put himself on the line for what he believes in, and will cower to political pressure. He is no different from other politicians.

He doesn't have to say "I will do anything I can to make sure Hilary is the next president" in order to prevent Trump from driving a wedge. There is a massive middle ground there.

wtf are you talking about. This man that was so anti establishment... so anti everything hililary ciltron, bites the dust and endorses cilnton. Sorry but thats the sign of a weak man. A man that would never have made a difference. This true colors are flying now, hes a sellout.

Quote
Yeah he lit a spark, and just now he helped to snuff it out. It just adds to the apathy my friends who already thought everything was corrupt feel.

Bernie did what Clinton never could, drive a steak in the heart of his movement by showing it was all a ploy all along.

And so old what else did he have left to lose? The spectre of the boogyman Trump made Sanders go scared to corruption?

Of course, this is the subreddit which spawned this legendary copypasta after the New York primary:

Holy shit. My mom came into my room to bring me a plate of chicken nuggets and I literally screamed at her and hit the plate of chicken nuggets out of her hand. She started yelling and swearing at me and I slammed the door on her. I'm so distressed right now I don't know what to do. I didn't mean to do that to my mom but I'm literally in shock from the results tonight. I feel like I'm going to explode. Why the fucking fuck is he losing? This can't be happening. I'm having a fucking breakdown. I don't want to believe the world is so corrupt. I want a future to believe in. I want Trump to be president and fix this broken country. I cannot fucking deal with this right now. It wasn't supposed to be like this, I thought he was polling well in New York???? This is so fucked.

WOW. Such delicious manbaby tears.  :lulz: :lulz: :lulz:

Dinosaurs are extinct, the flood is a convenient reason why.  Why wold someone insist that dinosaurs were on the ark?

Because the Bible says ALL of the living creatures.

I mean, it's not a cyborg fish exactly, but it's a goddamn light-controlled swimming meat-robot-fish, which is pretty damn cool.

If this shit isn't exactly what it sounds like I will kill a mofo  :argh!:

Cos it sounds like we can now build cyborg fish. You ever hear something that's so fucking cool, you plain don't have the heart to fact check it?

We covered a teeny bit of biomimetic engineering in the muscle and movement section of neurophysiology, and artificial swimming meat fish are totally a real thing.

Found the paper, it's 100% legit: http://scholar.google.com/scholar_url?url=http://dspace.mit.edu/openaccess-disseminate/1721.1/79685&hl=en&sa=X&scisig=AAGBfm3AhsgQSFlgCphGBJBghvurTo4M3A&nossl=1&oi=scholarr

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: I wanna be a student, too!
« on: July 12, 2016, 12:35:43 am »
So far, it's really fun. I miss being a student.

Being a student is really awesome and fun in a lot of ways.

I am also really damn sick of it, but I think I am pretty addicted to having THINGS TO LEARN. I want a break, but I don't necessarily think I would tolerate a break very well. Which is good because unless something unexpected comes up (typing that made my stomach turn because I don't feel very secure about life right now) I will be starting again in two months.

My diploma came in!

 :sotw: :banana: :whack: :milk: :zombie: :hosrie: :regret: :jihaad:

Hilariously, it's smaller than my bachelor's diploma, because schools do what they want, so now I just need to put it in an epic frame.  :lulz:

I suppose now that I've have two framed diplomas, my stupid for-profit AS degree should also get a frame and be taken out of the cover.

FRAME ALL THE DEGREES!

When mine come in, I plan to frame them all, including my GED, because dammit I am proud of that fucker.

Glad to hear this was useful for you!

So, after much hemming and hawing, I've registered over at www.complexityexplorer.org and signed up to take a course in Dynamical Systems.  Supposedly, it only requires high school algebra.  We'll see.

Looking to get the feel of this under my belt, then taking more advanced courses.  Not sure what it will lead to, but it'll look pretty bitchin' on my resume/CV.

OMG, this sounds like so much fun!

Aneristic Illusions / Re: UNLIMITED ZEROHEDGE APPRECIATION THREAD!
« on: July 10, 2016, 12:48:08 am »
I think that what I appreciate the most is that its owner is trying to astroturf forums and improve their search positioning by pretending that posting links to it over and over again is somehow relevant to any conversation on PD.

Yeah. If someone were to happen upon this thread when googling anything in the zerohedge links, it would just be full of people going "LOL SHIT SOURCE STOP SPAM NEWB." And that's terrible advertising.

I think we should edit every ZeroHedge link he posted to appear to be a ZeroHedge link, but actually be a hyperlink to goatse and/or midget porn. Eventually, the specific minority of people who will continue to google zerohedge after arriving in this thread will be of a particular sexual aberrance, essentially flooding their site with High Weirdness™.

This sounds like a winning strategy. Or, edit them to link to the RationalWiki page on Zerohedge. At least it's actually informational, unlike Zerohedge.

That had to have been before I joined, because I don't remember you ever having a bird, but it's gorgeous.

I saw the most adorable cold-blooded bird picture:



Awwww that is probably the cutest cold-blooded bird ever!

One of those cross discipline,  same terminology deals? Intelligence in the ai vernacular is like a black box version of software but much more powerful. We understand why it works but the actual state,  in old money the program logic, is something that just happens. It learns. It learns to perform intelligent operations on input data. It does stuff that would take millions of coders millions of years to hand code. If it could even be hand coded at all.

Considering the impact the olde fashioned, hand coded shit just had on the planet, I'm fast approaching certainty that no one aint seen nothing yet.

Yeah, I know dude. I don't talk about it much but I have a CIS background, and we covered AI and naive intelligence ad nauseum in upper-division neuroscience classes.
