Saidit, Is our earth flat? Why do you think it's flat? Why do you think it's round? explain. by [deleted] in conspiracy

It is not flat. If it were flat, it would be the grandest conspiracy imaginable, with the most moving parts, the most people in on the conspiracy, the least amount of scientific diligence among the scientific community imaginable, it would regularly conflict with science that is used every day by millions of scientists in a really meaningful way. It's so unlikely we may as well say it is impossible.

Despite Trump saying that the US should seek to get the troops out of Syria, the US is setting up a new military base over there. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

I went to a party with so-called "close friends", had an odd night where I felt exposed to dangerous ideals, and observed disturbing things, and now *my life* is upside down and *I'm* betrayed. by Goober_notorious2 in conspiracy

[–]sinedup4thiscomment 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I've encountered an actual psychopath and I can tell you with a great deal of certainty that these people are incredibly hard to detect, and they will do anything to serve themselves, betray anyone close to them etc. so long as it is the best calculated response to ensure self preservation. The thing is, that person I am referring to has probably not done anywhere near as many "immoral" things as some "normal" people that are merely misguided or impacted negatively by their upbringing. However, given the correct circumstances, that person would commit the most atrocious crimes imaginable to save themselves.

Goober probably just encountered, with a naive outlook, some mean spirited, but otherwise normal people. She should be glad she didn't come face to face with the primordial being slumbering inside us all-the primal directive if you will.

I can understand fining him, it's the excessive and unnecessary terms of his removal as chairman that I see as an attack.

Government 'deliberately underfunding NHS to privatise health service faster', senior doctors say by useless_aether in Europe

I think we can all agree that this is the worst possible scenario. Whether you have public healthcare, or private, the worst bastardization is a public system being undermined to be private or vise versa.

but I know working for Uber is actually extremely tough and doesn't pay well at all

It doesn't pay well, but there are incomparably more drivers than there ever were Taxicab drivers. It is supplemental income for most of drivers.

But all that aside, it's interesting that so many large companies now don't actually own the assets they have their employees use for profit-generating. They lease it.

More often they act as intermediaries to facilitate business, handling administration and adherence to the law within the parameters of the industries they are innovating. As far as leasing goes, that's not a widespread development in these industries, although that is the path Uber and Lyft specifically plan on going down.

The instability is probably the most worrying part of leasing everything rather than owning.

A lack of assets isn't stopping these companies from operating for years, losing billions every year. Their investors view these losses as investments in growing market share and innovating cost reducing implements.

If a large number of companies use this "leasing assets" strategy, then the whole economy could fall over the first quarter all these companies have a bad quarter and are forced to fold because they can't make the lease payments and are maxed out on debt.

This is unlikely to happen. Uber for example has raised something like $100BN+. They could continue losing money for another 20 years before burning through that. The investors in these corporations are playing the long game. They expect that Uber will one day be a trillion dollar corporation.

Spanish government rejects Catalan ultimatum on self-determination by magnora7 in WorldPolitics

Basically. The only constitutional way Catalan can leave Spain is if the rest of Spain agrees. It's bullshit.

Now they are leveraging political power to influence support for their independence instead of just stating they have it and expecting Spain to respect that statement.

Other than the fact that Bitcoin isn't a bank, Uber is likely to lease automated vehicles once legislation changes. Las Vegas already has experimental automated lyft vehicles you can opt into using. You must consider how these industries have created more jobs and brought more income to more people, more services, and more large scale business in these industries, than ever before seen.

Israeli-made weapons were found among the arms handed over by the terrorists in Damascus. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

[–]sinedup4thiscomment 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Yes and finding these weapons in the hands of Al Nusra (not called Al Nusra anymore anyway, but whatever) would be interesting. Well, actually it wouldn't because anyone paying attention would know that the same people we have supported in fighting against Assad have fought alongside the same people that have fought alongside ISIS and Al Qaeda.

US imposes new sanctions on Iranian banks and individuals. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

[–]sinedup4thiscomment 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Is there any reason why we can't discuss this in /s/politics? Is the intent to discuss the matter with a conspiracy tint? The only thing I can think to add is that the U.S. is sanctioning Iran for supporting terrorists, when the U.S. supports terrorists, but that isn't really a conspiracy, it's a documented fact that the government doesn't deny, they just don't call them terrorists for PR.

Coral Castle - Ed's magnetic flywheel by [deleted] in conspiracy

He was really good at moving things and getting them to perfectly balance. In a manner that is almost unreal and inexplicable.

From the wikipedia page on Coral Caste:

"The stones are fastened together without mortar. They are set on top of each other using their weight to keep them together. The craftsmanship detail is so skillful and the stones are connected with such precision that no light passes through the joints. The 8-foot (2.4 m) tall vertical stones that make up the perimeter wall have a uniform height. Even with the passage of decades and a direct hit on August 24, 1992, by the Category 5 Hurricane Andrew, the stones have not shifted."
