Oh, it's pretty common. In fact it's what most of the world thinks. They want us to go home.

Well, we're going to, and it's going to result in wars breaking out all over the place, and a reversion to poverty as global supply chains break down. We're already getting a taste of the future with the Wuhan virus situation.

It's going to be glorious. The very people who screamed at us to get out are going to be begging for us to come back. And we'll look down and whisper, "No."

The USA provided the platform of peace and free ocean transportation through the world that enabled this amazing economic revolution to occur. Without it, no global supply lines, no way to get products from cheap labor countries, no way to get raw materials in and finished products out.

I know, you hate America and don't want to admit that it ever did anything good. Baby-killers, etc. But the data show otherwise.

Don't worry, the American-led global order is coming to an end soon. It will be back to the old ways of war for conquest and markets. No more World Police. You'll love it!

I have no idea what your argument here is. Your original post implied that the rise in life expectancy in the last 70 years is solely due to USA. I pointed out that it's an inaccurate worldview. Also, something I forgot previously, correlation does not equal causation.

Life expectancy started rising in the western world in the late 19th century back when Britain was the world superpower and the European powers still dominated the world. Ascribing it all to USA is grossly innacurate.

The "rich" pay the overwhelming majority of the taxes which keep the country running.

They also make the overwhelming majority of the money, so that's perfectly fair. What they have left after taxes could buy the remaining 49% many times over. They still pay a lower tax rate than the middle class, which shouldn't be happening.

Agreed, we used to have an actual progressive tax (meaning the rich are taxed more than the poor) in the 1950s and then it became a flat tax, and now it's a regressive tax after the billionaires and corporations have spent 4 decades massaging and re-working the tax code to their benefit.

http://represent.us has some information on the weirdness of the US laws (and taxes).

In the US the tax has all kinds of rules, designed by rich people, that allow certain tax-deductions for rich people. Especially the ultra-rich. This means that most tax is paid by the lower income people. And often this money is guided to the rich people again.

Often laws are introduced as something that most people agree with, but they are badly worded. These laws are then altered with just a few words to get a complete different meaning. This can be done without much effort and resistance. This makes it possible to introduce weird tax cuts for big companies, or ultra rich people. Or to start wars without any consent.

Good points. I think an interesting measure too would be how homogeneous Earth's field is. There can be lots of conflicting magnetic domains pointing in opposing directions that cancel each other out. But if they all align facing the same way, the field becomes stronger. I imagine this happens sometimes too

[–]x0x7 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Interesting. One effect that could happen comes from the fact that Iron has a property called historisis. Basically the Earth maintaining its magnetism is not a zero energy process. Many scientists also suspect that chemical reactions and phase changes inside the Earth are related and I myself suspect the moon's tidal interactions with magma. Either way some amount of energy is coming from somewhere just to give it a little maintenance. It's relevant to what you said because to flip to domains back takes energy when the material has historisis.

Though the flaw with that idea is that the Earth's magnetic field is probably not enough to flip it back so it probably just stays aligned with our magnets until it wears off.

It would be interesting to set up an experiment to see if you can draw energy from a magnetic field from the natural degradation of a piece of iron polarized in opposition to it. The idea is that if you try to push a book shelf and fail at moving it then you don't consume energy. But if I help you move the the bookshelf and it starts to move then you can consume energy. So if the Earth's magnetic field can't realign domains in that iron it does have a direction of will, and if that will is satisfied even if other processes are involved (degradation) it can consume energy.

On average though the magnetic field is getting more aligned with the axis of rotation.

If I had to guess, it would make intuitive sense that this is the reason they are moving at in non-opposite directions and at different speeds. It’s somewhat add that we don’t have a straight forward axis in the first place. But if the poles are going to shift, it would make sense that the axis is related.

Interesting points. It's not AC lines I'm worried about though, it's stuff like MRI machines with 6+ Tesla magnetic fields and superconducting research magnets that are even more powerful.

To make a bar magnet, you put a magnetizing material under an even stronger magnet, and that causes everything to polarize in the same direction and thus have a large-scale magnetism.

I wonder if the very strong magnets we use on the surface of the earth, creates small magnetic domains in the earth in the local area where it's happening. Enough of these magnetic domains will eventually affect the Earth's field as a whole, and the easiest way for Earth's magnetic field to change is to change orientation (as opposed to changing in strength).

So it's possible we're causing the poles to move. I wonder if anyone is investigating this. Seems as least as plausible as anthropogenic climate change...

There's realistically only 3 (maybe 4) possible outcomes:

They reach the the "latitude of no return" (I think it's 40th?) and:

1) Speed up and completely flip,

2) "bounce" off the latitude and start going back, staying in their respective regions,

3) Stop at the latitude and slowly rotate around the latitude axis

Since we have NO clue what caused Earth's angular setting, it's entirely possible these changes are not normal and are residual effects of something that happened long ago (ie: a comet impact, solar flare destabilizing the core, etc). For instance - the Chinese myth of Nuwa and Gong Gong tells of a battle between gods, where one was thrown into a mountain, which caused the earth to tilt, created a huge flood and manifested the seasons. How is it ancient myth lines up with established understanding?

Arthur Koestler once said "myths, like crystals, grow according to their own recursive design - but both require a real basis".

The "mythical" fourth outcome would be something akin to them "dying"... not a good thing, but that would involve the solidification of the core and that just seems a bit... too far fetched, but it's still a logical possibility. (Some have even speculated the sun is far older than we are told - and that it itself could also be, dying.)

Out of the options, only #2 doesn't lead to a whole hell of a lot of problems (mainly regarding EM technology, GPS, probably animals (as they use magnetic fields to navigate, etc) (likely humans too)).

I've been watching this situation for a while now - there's a channel called "Mavstar Observatory" who has been assembling field monitors and shipping them around the world, to get a picture of what's happening.

It's possible. I used to be a physics major. I dropped out and its been many years and so I don't claim to be an expert. What I do know because I was an E&M guy is that the magnetic field doesn't make sense. The conditions alone of rotating molten iron does not make a magnetic field. Science is very interested in explaining the exact reason it exists and it is generally thought one way to close the gap between our understanding and reality is to say it has something to do with response to external magnetic excitement, and then self excitement. Which means the very nature of the field could be impacted by external things like the solar magnetic field, shifts in geography that happen due to Earthquakes, human electrical activity. Even damming up some water like the 3 gorges damn could do something. It could be that the field is naturally an unstable self-interacting system that has found a rare point of stability and that changing the magnetic permeability of any large area on the surface could change the field shape and cause it to self interact in a less stable way, kicking it out of its stable state, until it finds a new stable state. But any natural geographic event could do the same.

We can see from the magnetic history it is a semi-stable system that can be kicked into instability. In such a system even the variances within the stable state can kick something into motion on their own either scholastically or periodically.

But yeah, we probably shouldn't do anything that changes the field shape if we know it's unstable and know historically that the field weakens after it starts moving a ton. But honestly I would think dams or the sun would have more effect than running AC lines.

They are also not moving in opposite directions as one would expect. Both are going north.

Ah true good observation.

They are also not moving in opposite directions as one would expect. Both are going north. If you had a north pole significantly further down and it went northward and the south pole stayed opposite to it you would expect it to go southward.

It's almost reasonable that the south pole is slowing down because it couldn't keep that behavior up forever. I wonder if there is any concept of a magnetic center, because if there is it has shifted northward.

On average though the magnetic field is getting more aligned with the axis of rotation.

Maybe if there were a fixed angle between them it could be reasonable for the whole thing to rotate northward, but maybe the effect that generally aligns it with rotation is making the south pole more hesitant.

Apparently many are split up.

I didn't see any Carswells, nor Cresswells, nor Carsweilans, or any related or derived names.

A LOT of those names are abundant in Canada too, like me.

maybe they had to be split up for growing too big and monopolistic? :-)

California is a one-party state. San Francisco is not just left but far left. We all see how they govern. Medieval diseases thought banished long ago have resurfaced due to filth on the streets. And still they would rather have that than admit they're wrong and change their failed policies.

This is so filthy and disgusting.

This is the future the Democrats have for America. Single party, no meaningful input by the people, and discredited social theories pursued to their logical ends.

Vote, people. It's the only defense we have against this destruction of everything we Americans hold dear.

there should be regular, controlled fires, to deplete the 'fuel'. when this is not done, uncontrolled fires start up

Just for perspective...

The Ash Wednesday bushfires were a series of fires that tore through south-eastern Australia on 16 February, 1983. On a hot, unrelenting dry day more than 180 fires caused widespread destruction across South Australia and Victoria in just twelve hours. In Victoria, 47 people died and in South Australia, 28 died.

The trees excrete highly flammable oils, the natural cycle of the bush is to burn. The trouble is that we get in the way.

Turkish IQ by Region by useless_aether in maps

Do you know what methodology they used?

It's not mentioned, and "coincidentally" the areas that differ the most happen to be Kurdistan where there's a language difference.... 🤔

I don't have the specifics, but some IQ tests test similarities and vocabulary, testing those things outside the same linguistic and cultural population for comparison purposes (which IQ is about) makes no sense.

When tested across a population (Turkish in this case) and the average doesn't come as 100% it's a red flag.

So, I went full detective mode, because there was something I suspected.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Kurdistan

The part where the IQ is "the lowest" corresponds to Kurdistan where:

There has been significant conflict in Turkey over the Kurdish populations' linguistic rights. At various points in its history Turkey has enacted laws prohibiting the use of Kurdish in schools.[19]

In 2014, several Kurdish NGOs and two Kurdish political parties supported a boycott of schools in Northern Kurdistan to promote the right to education in the Kurdish language in all subjects. While Kurdish identity has become more acceptable in Turkish society, the Turkish government has only allowed the Kurdish language to be offered as an elective in schools. The government has refused to honor other demands. In several southeastern cities, Kurds have established private schools to teach classes in Kurdish but the police have been closing down these private schools.[20]

So, that pic is comparing (top right) "Edirne is the capital of the province, notable for serving as the third capital of the Ottoman Empire from 1363 to 1453." to a place where Turkish is possibly a second language (bot right). I wouldn't expect coherent results...

Many countries have an average below 100, and many have an average above 100.

Do you know what methodology they used? Raven's progressive matrices are culture independent and just rate your ability to find and understand patterns.

Wait, no 100 or above? That doesn't seem right...

The average for IQ is supposed to be 100.

When current IQ tests were developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100 and scores each standard deviation (SD) up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less,[3] although this was not always so historically. By this definition, approximately two-thirds of the population scores are between IQ 85 and IQ 115. About 2.5 percent of the population scores above 130, and 2.5 percent below 70.[4][5]

That's a 1st and obvious red flag...

No movement. Gifs are sometimes used for static images that have a limited color palette, they're very good at compression for those types of images.
