Too bad this doesn't address her CFR membership or the funds which got her into office- an anti-gay cult with lots of power in Hawaii which she is still affiliated with.

I guess the question is is she a progressive or a neo-con playing progressive?

It's actually much less stupid than that. There are ways to cause cows to emit less methane, and ways to prevent some of the methane from escaping. For instance, seaweed in the diet (which was mentioned in the article).

I'm guessing more like 85%-95% is true

I don't think it's that much… but I haven't checked, so that's a heuristic based on the status-quo.

but even if only 10% were true we'd have a major crises of staggering proportions

This is the reason I'm still talking to you.

I would include more on these aspects of our human weaknesses and need for independent thinking if I could find good material on it with the right approach. It's most certainly a necessary aspect and thanks for pointing out that void in the curriculum.

See https://www.lesswrong.com (may be down, but is usually up; check web.archive.org if you need access quickly). Regardless of who's right, if more people learn to think for themselves it'll stop being nuts v.s. sheep and start being people talking to each other about important things. (Note that LessWrong has a pretty big anti-death bias.)

The Deep State is a problem, and one that won't go away until direct democracy replaces representative democracy. But even with direct democracy, we'll still be vulnerable to manipulation from the media – perhaps more so, since there won't be career politicians swaying the manipulation in lots of different directions.

The second panel of the comic is the important part. Insert the weakest theory you've heard in the first panel. The bottom bit is programmer humour, so ignore it.

Also, I wasn't calling you a nut; just saying that many people would call anyone with that set of beliefs one. (And I do know of people who think 9/11 being staged is equally likely as aliens crashing in Area 51 and don't even make coherent arguments; I wouldn't place you in that "nut" category.)


I'd like to see the evidence against the conventional narrative of 9/11 presented in an unbiased way. Especially the thing about Cipro. And why does Anthrax come into it? I don't understand that.

The $2.3 trillion is an incredibly surprising figure, if true; about 1% of all the money in the world! If it were $2.3 billion I'd just blame ordinary bureaucratic error, but… Source?

(I don't tend to watch documentaries, because I don't tend to notice arguments-that-don't-follow-on and other similar manipulation when listening to something. Do you have any articles?)

Type out your message… then verify the assertions. Then edit your message to correct the false ones. Then check if it supports the argument you were originally trying to make.

Try to attack your own arguments before the other person does, so the low-hanging fruit isn't there and only meaningful rebuttals are valid.

"Jews" didn't do this. Some jews did.

Saying "jews" did this is about as accurate as saying "men" did this. Or "whites" did this. It's a ridiculous over-generalization that is not helpful.

Go after specific people if you think crimes were done.

Confusing the actions of a few with the actions of "jews" is how the holocaust happened, and how the people who committed the crimes got away while millions of innocents were killed instead.

You're feeding this scapegoat narrative by saying "jews did this". It's not helpful towards prosecuting those who are actually doing us wrong. You're muddying the waters in a way that benefits those who did the crimes, and I'm not even sure you realize it.

Hey just a quick style note, I'd encourage you to do dates like (Jan 14, 2019) instead of numbers. Because the order of the values differs from country to country, so many dates can be ambiguous, like 3-4-2019... is that March 4th or April 3rd? That sort of thing

IQ Scores Are Falling in "Worrying" Reversal of 20th Century Intelligence Boom by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Counter hypothesis: the [extended mind hypothesis]() is true, which means that the IQ tests are simply not testing for what passes for intelligence nowadays. Since the baseline value for "IQ" is determined based on the population's average, a drop in overall IQ scores is odd to say the least – and despite the misleading title, that's not what's been detected.

/u/SundogsPlace's observations are therefore explained by the effect explained in this xkcd and this xkcd and this xkcd: namely that people pick up on societal decline when it doesn't exist, based on comparing idealised averages from the past with specific selection-biased examples from the present.

Flat Earthers Meet in Ireland - Chinese Chou Li in 1100 BC, Indian Aryabhata in 500 BC and Greek Eratosthenes in 250 BC all proved the Earth is round by MartinTimothy in conspiracy

For one, airplane flight times only makes sense if the world is round.

If it were flat, all planes going to the opposite side of the earth would go over the north pole. But they don't.

If the world were flat, the flight time from Argentina to Australia would be double the flight time from America to Russia. And they would both go over the North pole halfway. But instead they're the same flight time, because they both fly east-west, because the earth is round.

It's obvious.

Nice, looks good. I like the bottom-right one the most. It has the best bubble shape and the best letter shapes.

D3rr was saying some people were questioning him about the A looking like a pyramid... so I guess we'd like to move away from that. Your A is a good shape, but maybe you could add a partial horizontal bar in the middle of the A to make it resemble more closely a traditional A and look even less like a pyramid.

I like the "D" of the top-left one the most, could you incorporate that in to the bottom-right one?

Then the .net is a little fuzzy, needs higher res or more sharpness when it's in the logo.

Other than that, looks pretty good. If you want to come back with a revision of that bottom-right one, we'll experiment with mockups of it integrated in to the site and see how it looks. /u/d3rr do you agree?

Dr. Phil is daytime/GOGETAJOB television as far as I know, never been a prominent evening program in The Netherlands.

Edit: On the same channels during the day are Tarotcard-phone-in-readers, teleshopping etc.

Yeah that's basically the case in the US as well. Definitely daytime TV for idiots, mostly. Which is why I was surprised to see this topic air

Interesting info about the cancellation, thanks.

HILARIOUS moment CNN legal analyst accuses radio host David Webb of 'white privilege' before learning he's BLACK by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

This is why one should never assume anything based on race, except perhaps resistance against sunburn; regardless of the the group it is aimed at, racism is still racist. I hope that here, in the place of anti-extremes, more people will understand this sentiment; it often seems that only fairly right-wing people care about racism against those considered "white", and many on the left only care about it against everyone else. I truly care about the rights of everyone, and I mean everyone, including my enemies, but communities like #AllLivesMatter currently seem to disproportionately care for only the usually ignored racism, rather than all discrimination based on race. Perhaps if more people of all backgrounds used the hashtag it would become more equalised.

Being mixed, I think race is a pretty silly concept; there is such a genetic continuum even for people that aren't necessarily very mixed that, to me, hard lines just seem too hard. It's genetic variation originating from geography, not solid categories.
