Anyone mind if I set this to early 80's punk?

1. Feel free to make this a general "I'm learning stuff" thread.

2. Nailed Bifurcations of the Logistic Equation.  The tests are way dumbed down, but I'll take it.

Apropos of nothing, tomorrow begins the Annual Prairie Shark Safari.

Yippie-Kai-Ai, motherfuckers.

There's also a biological component, I think, Nigel may need to correct me.

In countries where biological priorities are met, populations decrease in general, and in countries where they don't, they increase. I think.

This is because infant mortality has been a big thing for millions of years, and isn't gonna get shut off by short term consequences like "drowning in one's own shit." As far as I know. 

This also isn't anyone's fault. Humans have sped up environmental change, and evolution doesn't care about keeping up.

So, I get off of work and find that my doctor's practice (he is on vacation) has managed to fuck my prescription up again, for the ninth day straight.  So no sleep, lots of fun withdrawal symptoms1, and the urge to take a chainsaw to his staff and then proceed to the rest of the species.  And there is a minimum of 24 hours before it will be fixed.

If my crew were this incompetent, I wouldn't have to fire them, because they'd have killed themselves by now. 

Everything is broken and everything sucks.

1  Imagine the first day of stopping smoking.  with a toothache, only right behind your eyes.  The some bastard pushes you down the stairs and the IRS audits you.  That's the last ten minutes.  Of the last 24 hours.  It seriously took every rational bit that's left of my brain to not park my car in the side of a bridge abutment on I-10.

I'm constantly amazed at how some people/companies/firms will obsess heavily over something that doesn't even matter, and let really important things go straight to hell.  That must suck.

Can we adjust for technology?  Not sure how, but I was under the impression the Malthusian catastrophe was countered with the debunking of static assumptions about the amount of resources in a given unit of material available.

Sometimes, it's not the content, it's the distillation.

:thanks: I am flattered

I'd even submit that to QG for Big Words.  I'd even buy a T shirt.

Sadly, it's been known to work.

Personally and without empiric evidence, I would opine that a self-sustainable community is not inherently scalable: The human race did well with between (total guess) 50 and 100 people, having enough diversity for some to partially specialize (hunter, thatcher, miller, various other ancient surnames), but being flexible enough to cover or support others in times of crisis; and also the communal ability to establish tribal codes of conduct ("social contract") so that being a dick to someone was being a dick to everyone.

Announcing a (relatively) new, massive community without nods or counterarguments to anthropology seems... reckless.

Look at the world emptily, and it will gladly return the favor.

If not previous newsfeed, NEWSFEED.

After 10 years in this business I am finally saying goodbye to table humpers, arm fondlers, leg patters, and other assorted gross and creepy dudes.

I'm one month in my new lease at a chiro and going to very carefully run my 3rd Groupon and no more questions as to whether I offer "service to other areas". If this doesn't work, weed shops are aplenty in these parts and I have tons more sales/smoking experience than these hippies.

I'd buy from you.
