To be fair, this is the Open Bar.

Which is, also to be fair, not usually home to the degree of dick-waving I expect to see everywhere else on Peedee.

The dick-waving quotient increases by about 748% any time Thwack decides to grace us with his presence. He's still PeeDee-ing like it's 2006.

What can I say, sometimes elements of times past should return. There is a lot to be said for not taking yourself too seriously, and there are some here that really need to remember that.

No argument there, it's just that experience shows us that the people who tend to self-appoint themselves for that task are usually in that category themselves.
:lulz:
I mean, otherwise the whole shtick would be, just, inconceivable, and tedious.  Mainly tedious. :)

Beyond the wall / Re: Do impossible thoughts exist?
« on: January 14, 2017, 07:24:05 pm »
If I had the ability to think impossible thoughts, would a brain that is limited by possibility have the ability to process the discussion of my impossible thought to the point where it could even recognize the impossibility of the thought being discussed?

Please define the bolded.

By defining impossible, would I not be limiting impossibility to that which is merely possible to those without the ability to process impossible thoughts?

We also just have fun by defining impossible as Nothingness.

It's a bit rich for Italians to complain about immigration. 

That said, the Native American motif is a strangely recurrant one in fascist and far-right groups.  Hitler pointed to the fate of the Native Americans as one (of many) justifications for his drive to expansion.

Very rich for the North.  Ironic misappropriation even for Lega Nord's attempt at secession.  Something about right-wing nationalist movements that confuses what actually belongs to them.

Presumably there is also a downside to the medication?

Potential lactose acidosis.  That's when your pH drops by .4 and you vomit on everything and die.

Not sure that's a downside, though.
Calling Dr. Atkins, seems like ketosis not all that.

Do impossible thoughts exist or are they only imagined to exist such that we imagine the existence of an impossible thought and think we are thinking about it when we are in point of fact not thinking about it at all?
This also reminds me of what is past.

She was meeting with a Lega Nord representative there.  Lega Nord basically want to take North Italy and go home, because the south is full of poor people with dark skin.

Lega Nord are also big admirers of Putin.

Perceptual error indicates objective reality.

This conversation is a waste of time.
Yeah, I get that everyone thinks the first one was a masterpiece but people are allowed to be wrong. It was good, but nothing special. It really took the second film to fully explore the horrors of not only the xenomorphs but of the inevitability of humanity's demise at the hands of its own greed.

If Star Trek is space socialism, the Alien quadrillogy is space libertarianism and that, I'm afraid, is the vastly more likely real-life future. And if that doesn't scare you, well, we're motivated by very different things I guess.


No, I think the issue is that Alien is actually a horror film, while Aliens is an action film.
Because Predator is obviously the most terrifying Sci fi movie of all time due to the implication that this planet is a mere playground for far more intelligent and technologically advanced species.

Which reminds me how terrifying Aliens is as a propaganda piece for the military industrial complex.

Well, here's some dirt.  This dossier alleges full cooperation between Trump and the Russian regime, golden showers and other fun stuff.

Weird.  On drive home Monday, I noticed three licence plates referencing water-sports.  Suppose that makes sense now...  Watersports and licence plates...

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Direct Experience
« on: January 10, 2017, 11:34:29 pm »
What is in the way of OP's "direct" experience is the notion of a "world" that can be directly experienced without the interference of consciousness.  The world is not something that exists "on the other side" of consciousness.  Objective/external dichotomies are insufficient and misleading.  The only way to obtain any vestige of a "direct" experience is, wait for it............... Now! :)

Beyond the wall / Re: Our dreams have failed us
« on: January 09, 2017, 04:08:35 am »
To fight against the death of dreams, today I did exactly what they last intimated.  This morning, I had a vivid dream about a being that lived in the swell above a waterfall.  Upon waking, I drove to a park and trekked up the mountain to a place that sometimes has one.  Not enough rain yet for that, however, the best Sunday I had in a while.  Not sure if that translates, hope it does, somehow.
