Why are there no browsers that are not based on Chromium or Firefox? by trident765 in technology

[–]trident765[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Here is what I think: It used to be that browsers conformed to standards. And so anyone could make his own browser and compete with the big browsers as long as he was willing to conform to the standards. But now Google controls so much of the internet that the real "standards" have become whatever are the whims of Google, even though they are not written down anywhere. I think Google keeps changing making pointless changes to the standards in order to break the other browsers, and at some point it just became too difficult for them to keep up. This is what I am guessing - I have no technical knowledge about browsers.

This was an excellent speech, but what interest does an Israeli Jew have in lecturing Americans on how to run their country?

His point about newcomers having the potential to be a source of political disunity is a valid one, and I have seen examples of it throughout my life, and it probably applied in Spain before the Reconquista, but I don't think it applies in the case of immigration to the US because American culture has always been poorly defined, and the immigrants also are culturally weak since they are mostly people who sought to abandon their home country for materialistic reasons. I think the source of political disunity in the US is just that lack of firmly held beliefs creates a vacuum for idols to fill the void, and the competing idols create disunity.

Idiots think AMZN has peaked. Now is the time to buy more by trident765 in investing

[–]trident765[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

As of right now AMZN is $3550. Their PE ratio is 67, which is lower than it was a few months ago (80s) even though the price of stock has increased. Amazon has lots of potential to increase profits by cutting costs, raising prices, spying on people, and lobbying for legislation that will suffocate competition from small businesses (e.g. minimum wage increases). Amazon is transitioning from being a good company to an evil company like Google. Their current profits are peanuts compared to what they will be making 10 years from now.

How does the average moron cope? by Cornfed in ConservativeExodus

I think life is only bad if you are a good, intelligent, and modest person. If you are an evil, stupid, and charismatic person, you will have a fulfilling life in modern western societies. You will get a high paying job, have numerous relationships with women, and be respected by your peers.

The thing is, how in God’s name does a normal person cope with this?

I think nowadays most men are evil, stupid, or charismatic so life is just fine for them. If your life is miserable, then you are the one who isn't normal.

What he did was bad but the way they got him in prison was really bullshit.

And then they used the confession against him anyway. This is why his conviction was overturned.

Is Gab the worst website ever created? by fschmidt in nonmorons

I have never tried to post on Gab, but for me, Interactive Brokers is by far the worst website I have ever had the misfortune of using. It is frustrating to use, nothing works, SMS verification required every time you edit settings or trade stocks, and everything about the website is designed to lock you out so that you can't access your money. I forgot my username because they have stupid username rules making it impossible to pick a username you can remember. And their page says that if you forgot your username they won't send it to your email and you need to call tech support which is never open and has a long waiting time. Luckily, after some more thinking I was able to remember my username and after I got in I immediately liquidated my account.

I am not familiar with c# but the android sdk, which is the worst sdk ever written, is also filled with this stuff. I also encountered this at work where the evil scum where I work also wrote their python software according to "Model-View-ViewModel" and they convinced the department head to intervene and shut down my software because my software isn't written according to this stupid format.

Bullshit. When I tried to do this at work they tried to manipulate me into stopping for a few months before finally convincing upper management to intervene and shut my software down. There was a team of people at work who had adopted my software and they were banned from using it. But they kept using it because the evil scum offered no useful alternative, and they would keep asking me questions until finally last week I was informed that upper management has now banned from even talking to the head of this team.

It's not just that they don't want to fix their software. It's also that they force everyone to use their junk. The head of the team I mentioned told me if it were just one or the other it wouldn't be so bad, but the problem is that it is both.

No it doesn't. There is a certain class of programmers who are evil in every way. They control every widely used open source software in the same way that evil dishonest moderators control almost every widely used subreddit. If a user of their software asks them a question they are often condescending or rude. If you report a bug they will tell you it's not a bug and you are using it wrong. And if it is something that is very obviously their problem like a memory leak, they will ask you questions about how you were using it until they can find something abnormal you did which they will use as an excuse to ridicule you and say that you are the problem and not their shitty software. And if you didn't do anything unusual, and you can reproduce the bug by running it in the canonical way, they will just lie and say to your face that you did something stupid and end the discussion. They have to do this because they program according to principles that result in bad software, so the only way they can avoid looking incompetent is by ridiculing those who report things that may make them look bad, ridiculing their competition, and forcing programmers who write better software than them to stop via dishonest political means.

Although almost all of them claim to care passionately about liberal causes, I don't think they truly care because everything is about image to them, so it would make sense for them to support causes that make them look like good, caring people. All of the evil programmers where I work have Twitter accounts, where they post about liberal causes daily. They are vocal in their support of Black Lives Matter, but I don't think they really care about blacks this passionately because they are all whites and I only ever see them associate with whites.

Positivity by trident765 in nonmorons

The first order of business in life is to survive. This is in fact mostly a matter of identifying and avoiding or neutralizing the bad/noxious/dangerous. This "negativity" helps you not to be killed by rivals or die from eating poisonous mushrooms, etc. Once survival is assured you can move on to improving things and building culture, which depends both on avoiding the bad and recognizing the good.

The Sahara desert contains none of these bad things but if you were teleported there you would probably die after a few days. Maybe it is not worth paying attention to in wealthy societies like the modern West, but in normal animal life acquiring good things is essential for survival.

Does intelligence = "size of gun barrel," and wisdom = "knowing where to aim"? by covac in nonmorons

I have a coworker/friend who is extremely high IQ and is able to solve problems that confuse me. But he is a conformist moron who wastes his intelligence pointlessly doing the bidding of evil scum, even though he himself is well-intentioned. There is reflexive intelligence which is useful on the time scale of sports, IQ which is useful on the time scale of a math test, and wisdom which is useful on the time scale of a lifetime or several generations.

I am absolutely certain that if you looked at the IQs of vaccinated people vs unvaccinated people, the vaccinated people would have a significantly higher IQ. But for them to trust society on this level indicates a serious lack of wisdom.

Unless you religiously get lattes every day, and you make minimum wage, I don't think it is going to make that big of a dent in your income. I think most people are too lazy to go to Starbucks often enough that it becomes a financial problem.

My coworker makes the same income as me and he lives paycheck to paycheck whereas I have a couple of hundred thousand saved up. He rents expensive apartments, he keeps moving every few months, he took out a loan to buy a brand new car, he has student loan debt. I tried getting him to invest his money but he sold it all after it fell 1% because he was afraid he was going to lose all his money.

Speaking as a driver and a pedestrian, I would much rather risk walking into a bicycle every so often than deal with cyclists on the road. The consequences of a bike crashing into a pedestrian will probably be forgotten after a day. But if a car crashes into a bicycle, this will be the cause of grief for weeks. Yielding to cyclists who ring their bell might be annoying, but I think figuring out how to pass the cyclist in front of you who is biking at 20 mph below the speed limit is more annoying.

Why is it taking so long for robots to replace coffee shop workers? by trident765 in nonmorons

Another thing to keep in mind: Even if a robot is cheaper to run, this does not mean the robot is intrinsically more efficient. One thing that may be inflating the cost of human laborers is that there are laws protecting them from being enslaved, whereas there are no such laws protecting robots. The cost of feeding and housing a slave is the true cost of human labor.

https://www.calconic.com/calculator-widgets/cafex-calculator/5f4c7b2cd38e1a001e61c269

Based on this, it looks like even if you ignore what it costs to buy one of these, it costs around $2800/month to run this. Might as well hire a worker. I wonder if human labor is more efficient than society makes it out to be.

Was the West's collapse a result of idolatry? by trident765 in nonmorons

[–]trident765[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The enemies of the West are idolatry, satanism, and Judaism. But all of these have been around for a long time, so they can't have been the cause of the recent fall of the West.

It's true that idolatry has always existed, but maybe there were some conditions that were suppressing idolatry before, and then the conditions changed in such a way that permitted idolatry to flourish. For example, maybe if society is too wealthy, this allows idols to thrive. Most degenerate modern philosophies are descended from philosophies of people like Nietzsche, Feuerbach, Hegel - they flourished during or immediately after the industrial revolution.

I do not yet have a strong opinion about what I think caused the West to collapse.

Excerpt from a US Supreme Court unanimous opinion from a naturalization case in 1923:

What we now hold is that the words "free white persons" are words of common speech, to be interpreted in accordance with the understanding of the common man, synonymous with the word "Caucasian" only as that word is popularly understood. As so understood and used, whatever may be the speculations of the ethnologist, it does not include the body of people to whom the appellee belongs. It is a matter of familiar observation and knowledge that the physical group characteristics of the Hindus render them readily distinguishable from the various groups of persons in this country commonly recognized as white. The children of English, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian, and other European parentage, quickly merge into the mass of our population and lose the distinctive hallmarks of their European origin. On the other hand, it cannot be doubted that the children born in this country of Hindu parents would retain indefinitely the clear evidence of their ancestry. It is very far from our thought to suggest the slightest question of racial superiority or inferiority. What we suggest is merely racial difference, and it is of such character and extent that the great body of our people instinctively recognize it and reject the thought of assimilation.
