My gf was walking by and just said "pedo eyes" when I had his picture up.

I guess that's that then.

Finland's result on its UBI experiment: people don't shirk work. And it increases trust, health & wellbeing by Orangutan in BasicIncome

Exactly - it can be "utopian" or a trap - if implemented today by the people in charge, it'll be a damn trap.

Besides, before even considering UBI, (good people) would have to figure out what a dollar is worth anymore, a country needs to accurately get its M0, M1, M2, M3 sorted the fuck out and figure out a replacement for GDP - then it can start implementing policy.

Until then, obligatory

Truthfully, I like the idea - I really do - people deserve some help after everything they've been through last 19 years - but it just won't work long-term within the frame work of Darwinian Capitalism.

Lots of articles also talking about how it isn't as great as it seems. There hasn't been enough time to analyze the results, plus the test wasn't long-term enough. Plus the test's publicity and attention may have staved off some of the ill effects - in hopes it happening, let me explain:

In the end the UBI level off at 1$ more than poverty and all the prices will increase, because of a "market flush with cash".

5$ buys you 5, 1$ items.

Suddenly everyone has 6 dollars, an increase of 20%. What are the odds business will hike prices 25% minimum? Quite good I would say - especially for items that people MUST have: food, medicine, etc.

5$, 5, 1$ items 6$, 4, 1.25$ items

As such your 5$ that bought you 5 items, turns into 6$ buying you 4 items.

Now keep in mind this kind of "leap stage" from 5 items to 4, may not occur EVERY "minimum wealth increase" (be it UBI or min. wage increase, etc), but it WILL happen inevitably. Anyone who has seen min-wage increase in their area can attest to this.

Until inflation and unregulated mark up are addressed, this will only lead to more severe exploitation of the population for the profit of "business", just like everything else in this world.

To make it appear good, you probably won't see any of the price increase scam in this experiment (on purpose) - let it become "law" and see how fast that changes, when business is free to fuck you, 21st century style.

I'll eat my own beard if I'm wrong.

Iraq vets with Semi-automatic rifles in schools. What could possibly go wrong? by Robin in news

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

Of course there is a strict hiring process - and no, not all have problems from the war - but truth be told, a high percentage do - and they are the one's having problems finding jobs it would seem.

At least one of them is going to slip through the hiring process - seeing as how there aren't that many solid opportunities for these people.

Don't get me wrong, I'm on the soldier's side in this - kids can be dicks.

It's just a mathematical probability/inevitability of putting an armed person in a school.

Oh you know, kids being kids, teasing, taunting - probably trying to touch the gun... until one of them is having a bad day and is taking their anti-psychotics, snaps and beats the kid to a pulp or just shoots them out of reflex.

Soda bad as smoking & alcoholism changes your DNA (yeah, I'd believe that) by Vigte in Health

Surprise, surprise.

Now of course this has some anti-american sentiment inherent to RT (they're not as bad as the normies would think I'd say) - and of course New York has a bit of a sugar-war going on - so - lots to consider - but... I haven't taken chances with pop/soda for a long time and I don't regret it... so maybe there is some truth here.

Can the "funny" button function like a downvote? by StalwartJames in SaidIt

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

I just thought like, a coloured tab in the corner of a post if it has a higher score than the one above it.

Like this I guess

Like a free algorithmic gold, I just like sorting data lol.

I don't think it would be as problematic here as it would be on Reddit - like you pointed out, it's a "slippery slope" (which I really don't see as a fallacy, at least not how it's used by concerned people around here). People around here aren't as disgusting and NPC level as Reddit and I don't think it would be as abused and evolved as it would be there.

The only thing that could defeat post highlighting is vote manipulation - which is against the rules and being monitored - so I don't see how it would be THAT bad.

Edit Here I took your idea and ran with it - you should feel honoured to be the first recipient of the Straight White Male post flair (read; shame!!!)
