So this gives us roughly 8 trillion, 212 million, 500 thousand interactions between women and men in the US yearly,

We're really looking for interactions in which the man and women are alone, and help is a long way away.

That's a 0.000000028% chance that any interaction with a man will result in harm. Not bad!

The immense majority of those will be in the city with other people around, and the vast majority of the remainder would be a situation in which yelling loudly has a chance of bringing help or at least witnesses. A lot of the remainder would be situations in which the woman takes precautions because of the risk posed by men.

It was just so jarring for you to quote numbers at me, never ask me for numbers, then claim you're asking again as though I've refused to offer them.

Perhaps I should have been clearer. When I asked "Okay, How inaccurate do you think it is?", I wasn't really asking you to guess. I was hoping you'd quantify it with data.

My follow up questions to your internal speculation: "What proportion of Bear sightings result in attacks, do you think?" was supposed to be a clarification that I don't trust your speculation and would be interested in the numbers.

So when I said "Okay, again, link me to these figures", it was the third time I'd asked you for numbers, after you'd just responded to questions about the numbers with internal speculation twice already.

"Woman in Germany" are the only correct words in the headline.

Not really "publishing". She linked to an article. And not really "Statistics", more "out of context data".

Hunter Biden's Laptop Is SO REAL It Will Be Used as Evidence in His Gun Trial by Questionable in news

[–]ActuallyNot 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

First, Hunter left three laptops with a Delaware Mac repair shop and forgot to pick up one of them.

Nope. No evidence hunter dropped anything off at a delaware mac repair shop.

What we have is a blind repairman claiming that a person dropping off one laptop said he was hunter biden.

Then the FBI got a copy of the laptop in 2019 and pretended it didn't exist.

Rudy Giuliani forwarded a copy of the laptop to the FBI and the post in an effort to damage Biden.

The FBI found that there wasn't any evidence of wrongdoing, nor was there evidence that it was Hunter Biden's

Then the intelligence community, knowing it could be a storyline in the 2020 election, "pre-bunked" the content of the laptop at an Aspen gathering, telling journalists invited to the yearly confab that if they heard anything about the laptop they should know it was "hacked" and should disregard it as disinformation.

They're correct. But the motivation is the other way around.

Then it was dismissed as Russian disinformation and anyone reporting the story was a Putin poodle.

And still is.

Then they got social media companies to censor the story and any outlet that reported it.

No. They blocked social median outlets posting revenge porn. Revenge porn is illegal.

Then before the 2020 election, the worst secretary of State of all time got 51 lying politicians who used to work at the CIA and other spook agencies to say it sure looked like Russian disinformation.

It does look like Russian disinformation.

Then Hunter's legal team confirmed its veracity in court papers.

Some of the files on it had been hacked from Biden's phone.

Then the Biden poodle who had been "investigating" Hunter for years was caught doing nothing.

Biden went out of his way to let the Trump appointee keep his job so that the investigation of his son would not only be not interfered with, but would not be seen to be interfered with.

Then the 53-year-old Biden said that his computer was hacked.

Yes. That is what everyone has been saying.

Joe Biden makes surprise nighttime visit to Hunter’s ex Hallie Biden days before she testifies in first son’s gun trial by P-38lightning in news

[–]ActuallyNot 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Good ole Rupert Murdoch, appearing again for all the world that his client is Putin.

Although many commentators noted the awkward optics due to the looming trial, the visit came four days before the anniversary of Beau’s death.

Yeah, like the fucking headline you chose.

White House spokesman Andrew Bates told The Post that the president didn’t discuss the trial with Hallie Biden during the visit.

“No,” he replied. “He visited her because of the approaching 9th anniversary of Beau’s passing.”

Fair enough.

The White House did not disclose the reason for the president’s brief visit around 8 p.m.

You just quoted the white house spokesman disclosing the reason for the president’s brief visit around 8 p.m.

Hunter’s alleged illegal firearm was thrown a trash bin by Hallie Biden, the first son said in text messages obtained from his abandoned laptop.

It's very unlikely that there was a laptop that Hunter Biden abandoned.

What we have is a bunch of data that Rudy Giuliani clams is a copy of a laptop that he claims hunter Biden dropped off to a repairman who was conveniently blind, so that he couldn't identify who dropped the laptop off. Dozens of intelligence officials have pointed out that in their expert opinion, the data “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

Hunter agreed to a probation-only plea deal to the gun and tax crimes last June, but walked away from the “sweetheart” bargain

What the fuck? No one is ever charged with lying on that gun form, unless there is some other crime involving the gun. And the form is probably unconstitutional under the current SCOTUS' rulings. When you've paid your back-tax, again, it is very rare to be charged.

This was nothing like a sweetheart deal. This is a political hack job, with the GOP playing Putin's gimp.

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

The figures show it's Very unusual behaviour for a man.

Okay, again, link me to these figures.

You have agency against a man that you don't against a bear. Can a woman outrun a man? Often no... Can she outrun a bear? Far less likely.

How does "agency" kick in between unlikely and less likely? Surely they're qualitatively the same.

For example, I know a Polar Bear will stop and investigate literally anything you drop.

Sure. I don't think the though experiment would work on polar bears. They're aggressive, they're obligate carnivores and you're prey even if they don't mistake what you are. They're not afraid if you look big, letting them know you're there will draw them, and playing dead doesn't work because they attack to eat.

Cute when they're on the TV though.

Maybe it's just the ignorance of the average person as to how powerful and wild a bear can be?

They don't generally attack. I mean the thought experiment doesn't involve going up to hug one. Just encountering in the woods.

In A Relationship: The Man or the Bear? by TonyDiGerolamo in Comics

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

Do I think bear attacks in the woods are as common as being attacked by men in the woods? It's a bit hard to measure those against each other.

Yeah, that's the thought experiment posed to women.

It's a bit hard to measure those against each other.

Sure.

"Okay, but only bears that came within 15 meters of you during mating season when they can smell other male bears around."

The advice is still announce yourself by yelling or with a whistle. So if they know you're there, even in mating season their most common behaviour is to leave you be.

That being said, that's already a foregone conclusion with the bear. If the bear is going to attack you, they run faster than you, they are stronger than you, they have claws and teeth - It's really all up to the bear how that goes.

Sure. The thing is that's unusual behaviour for a bear, and less usual for a man.

With a fellow human you have agency: Maybe you can run faster,

Unlikely as a woman.

maybe you can fight him off,

Unlikely as a woman

maybe you can ask him to leave,

This would be equivalent to yelling or whistling at the bear wouldn't it? You've put "If the bear is going to attack you," in the premise, but you're avoiding the premise "If the man is going to attack you," which isn't a fair comparison

maybe you can bribe him,

yeah. Feeding bears is illegal, because it creates a situation where a bear will approach people when its hungry which creates a bear that is unnaturally dangerous. But in a pinch you'd at least not pack up your lunch if you think your life is on the line.

I imagine that a bribe would at least slow them down.

maybe you can act so crazy he just wants to go away...

Analogous strategies can discourage a bear too. Hold your hands above your head to look big. Hold a big stick.

Are you safer with a bear or a man, I think, as it requires that the man already be a danger that you need to negotiate.

I think it's just which would you feel more in danger from if you encountered a lone one in the woods, before you know anything about them.

"Bear because men are more dangerous", I think it's: "Very".

What proportion of Bear sightings result in attacks, do you think?

What proportion of single man encounters with single women in the wilderness result in attacks to you think?

Most interactions on the street don't allow for a rape or murder, but being in the wood provides opportunity, therefore motive?

Being in the woods means that there's no help for the woman's if the man (or bear) is dangerous.

Well the invasion of Ukraine is Putin being butthurt about the break up of the Soviet Union, and deciding to start a vicious program of expansionism and ethnic cleansing.

And the Gaza war is about Bibi worried about his image as a good tactician, and deciding to start a vicious program of extermination.

But the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were banker-driven, as were the cold war actions of Vietnam and Korea, and the destabilisation of South American Nations.

The man or bear thing is about the perception of risk.

The bottom line is, a woman has a chance against a man. She has no chance against a bear.

She's got a good chance against either if they don't attack her.

There was an investigation of that. Lost in part because, in the interests of transparency he let the Trump-era Hur run the investigation. In the report Hur dwells on Biden's photographic memory. at one point Hur tells Biden "you appear to have a photographic understanding and, and recall of the house.", but turns it into a political hack job, where he claims biden is old and senile. The report makes if very clear he was sharp and the charges weren't brought because he didn't try to keep the documents.

The case history is that if you notify the authorities and cooperate promptly you don't get charged.

Biden noticed the documents (in a locked cabinet), let NARA know that day, and they were retrieved the same day.

The prompted a consensual search of Biden's home, and the other documents were found and retrieved.

Trump has engaged in a huge campaign running for four years of lying, delaying, moving documents so that they would not be retrieved, and trying to cover up that deceit.

Hence the search warrant, and the charges.

Also the concern that he has been or is selling the secrets to Saudi Arabia, or others.

That's not really: "On the other hand", that's a bit of a misunderstanding of how those statistics would work.

The "Man or Bear" thing is about which a woman would feel safer with. It's not statistics. It's perception of risk.

As for bears being aggressive, I think that's as much case by case as the average man is.

Sure, the video is during the salmon run. But by the same token seeing a brown bear in the woods isn't a death sentence. Recommended behaviour involves the basic strategies of letting the bear know you're there, and relying on the fact that they don't generally attack if they know you're a human and don't perceive you as a threat.

And being eaten is relatively rare too. Playing dead is the recommended strategy if you're getting mauled, which only works if they're not eating you.

The pancake theory is just bunk. It reduces the fall speed. Does not work with steel buildings, and does not match the excessive energy.

Link please.

The damage was not by the building falling onto it.

You noticed the plane? Aviation fuel burns pretty hot.

The damage was from the excessive energy that expelled the structures outward.

You just said that they building collapsed on their own footprint, not damaging the buildings around.

Pick a lane.

They used 2x the amount of demolition explosives than was necessary.

Okaaay ... How much demolition explosives were necessary?

The dust is clearly from the site.

Nope. There's no chain of custody.

And it was corrosive to cars and buildings.

The buildings that weren't damaged?

The dust contained iron spheres, that are remains of vaporized steel.

Why not steel spheres then?

The Pentagon will never release any information about the lost trillions.

How do you know about it then?

But the budget shows 100% a $21 trillion loss. This gets more if we look deeper into loans and other stuff, then it grows to $65T

What were the loans, and how do they contribute to the loss? If borrowed money has gone missions, who is financing the $44T loan. Wouldn't that be a couple of trillion in interest per year at least?

Who's servicing that debt?

Allow me to clarify.

Go ahead.

First, I am a gay man, legally married to another man for over a decade.

Great. Is antidiscrimination legislation supporting gay men married to other gay men for over a decade not important to you?

However, there are many other issues that are more important to me, especially when the major lgbT issues on the table right now concern intrusive demands I don’t believe in.

You don't care about being sacked for being gay?

Why not?

I am more concerned about the widening economic gap between rich and poor

Another reason not to vote for Trump.

concentration of wealth and value in fewer hands

A third reason not to vote for Trump.

the centralization of control of almost everything that matters

A fourth reason not to vote for Trump.

unchecked immigration

immigration has been increasing since the 1970s. But certainly Trump has separated parents and children at the border to discourage illegals and asylees.

If you're devoid of empathy, perhaps that some comfort to you. But that doesn't speak very highly of your character.

and the right of the common man or woman to be left alone

Okay, you've lost me here. What are we talking about?

whether you’re gay or straight, or even a straight person who doesn’t want to be around gay people.

Strange view for a gay man. Why don't you say "even a gay person who doesn't want to be around straight people"?

Yeah, sure, Trump isn’t great.

Indeed. As far from it as the US has seen in my lifetime.

But Biden is a dumpster fire.

In what way? Supporting gay rights?

Either way our country is going to collapse, but it will collapse faster under Biden.

That's ridiculous. Trump tried to overthrow the democracy last time. You can't collapse it faster than that.

The sudden free-fall collapse of 3 WTC towers into their own footprint. Which is evidence for a controlled demolition.

Or of the collapse of the top floors onto each of the floors below, causing them to collapse.

So fine-controlled demolition, that there was no damage to other buildings.

Except the destroyed St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, Marriott World Trade Center (Marriott Hotel 3 WTC), South Plaza (4 WTC), and U.S. Customs (6 WTC), and the damaged World Financial Center buildings and 90 West Street, and 130 Cedar Street.

The WTC-dust also contained oxidizers that indicate demolition.

Although there's no evidence that that dust came from the WTC site.

The Pentagon's administration was damaged. And that destroyed the possibility to track down 21 trillion dollars.

The defence claimed that Foster was pointing his gun (despite having the safety on and no round chambered). So I suspect that you can't just shoot someone because you found their walk threatening, or they would have presented a defence that wasn't contradicted by all the other eye witnesses.

My question is did he point a gun at him.

Opinion varies on that. Perry said he did. All the other witnesses, and common sense say that he didn't.

The jury found to the standard of beyond reasonable doubt that he didn't.

[–]ActuallyNot 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

He wasn't defending himself.

  1. Perry had made multiple posts and direct messages on social media expressing his desire to shoot Black Lives Matter protesters, writing in messages, "I might have to kill a few people on my way to work, they are rioting outside my apartment complex," and "I might go to Dallas to shoot looters."

  2. Perry had stated that someone could shoot protesters and get away with it by claiming self-defense.

  3. There was no evidence that Foster had pointed his weapon, and other eyewitnesses contradicted Perry's account that he had. AS did the fact that Foster's weapon was recovered with its safety on and no cartridge in the chamber, so it would not have made sense for him to point his weapon.

The jury were correct. And the sentencing was reasonable.

Did End Wokeness cherry pick the graphics at all?

I notice that they survey found that immigration was considered the seventh most important issue after (in order) Health, war, purchasing power, the environment, security and taxes.

That seems to be under-emphasised by "end Wokeness" as does the fact that a lot of the people who thought their country had too many migrants, didn't think that was a problem. (Although a little over half did rate immigration as a perform).

To be honest, if you just read that tweet, you'd be mislead into thinking immigration is considered a much bigger issue than it is.

That's like saying that the Black Lives Matter protestors would all, most likely, have ties to George Floyd or the black community.

That they're more likely to have ties to the black community than people who don't support BLM.

With protests, especially on university campuses, it's just as often students wanting to skip classes, students wanting attention, students who have no idea what's actually happening and just like the most popular or unpopular causes.

I see you've never been to university.

They wouldn't be skipping lectures, or other contact hours. Stanford University isn't cheap.

And they don't call them "classes".

These aren't plucked randomly. They're the ones hunger striking in support of the protesters who have been arrested.

They're the 13 most likely to have ties to palestine in the entire campus.

I haven't made up anything about them.

Yes you did. You don't know that they've never been to palestine, and you can't know that they're never going to go.

I've stated a simple, numerical fact: In any university, the odds that these kids have been to Palestine is so slim that I feel comfortable saying: "They haven't been to Palestine"

No. You said that they have been and are never going to go to palestine.

The pseudoscientific claims of satanic child abuse that destroyed the lives of some of the accused, and damaged the development of the children that were coerced into giving false testimony.

Covid and Vaccine denial also vilified rational people, and caused harm by allowing the disease to spread. But it is nowhere near as extensive. I've heard people advocate for the truly idiotic position that Fauci should be charged with various crimes, but this is fringe. Society in general is nowhere near far enough removed from reality that that could happen, and a court could find scientists guilty as people were during the satanic panic.

So while the hysteria is certainly present, without something like religion backing it, it's just some crackpots barking at shadows.

No, but these are pointless questions.

The point of the questions is question your assumption that they've never been to Palestine.

Does everyone visit Palestine before university?

No. We're talking about the 17 students who were on the hunger strike.

My point stands true for the majority.

How many of the 17 do you claim have never been to, and will never go to Palestine?

Did you have a greater point you wanted to make?

You're making up stuff you don't know about these students? Why?

The usual reason people make stuff up is because the argument they want to make is fallacious. That's probably the case here.

So why do you want to claim that they don't understand the cause? What is your understanding of the cause? Why do you find other understandings of it so objectionable you have to make up stuff about them?

Hell, I haven't seen any atheist bash Judaism yet.

Noah Lusions has done some pretty straightforward anti-Judaism rants, targeting more conservative interpretations. Watching one of those jewish fathers strike his very young son for asking his older sister about some religious writing he was trying to learn, because all that reading thing isn't for women was a formative event in his becoming a atheist activist.

The atheists on reddit are careful about it, but they don't avoid discussing it:

Christianity is bad

Certainly the current erosion of first amendment protections from them is bad, and it is Christians driving that.

but for some reason Islam is good.

Not many atheists would agree with that.

Although as with Christians, there are many individuals trying to do good in the world, and so long as they avoid the "well, I'll just pray instead of doing anything" and the "and while we're here, lets convert everyone to hating women and gays, and drop off some holy literature", some of them do.
