I admit I sometimes react to just the title, mostly because I want to read what other people have to say about it and chat about it, and honestly I feel bad about it. But then I read things like this and I don't feel so bad anymore.

It's sad that comment sections often are way better than articles. If you think about it the article is just one comment on the page that gets extra prominence because it had more CSS go into it and it's on another site. It's not like these journalists are more credible than you or I. There are times that I've put solid time researching before finishing a comment that had to be 10x more than any news outlet that published the Nick Sandman story. I do more work to vet my comments than CNN does for a national story. And I don't think I'm particularly awesome. I think we're all better than CNN because that's pretty easy.

Like if CNN articles were embedded into the site so that it looked like a normal comment most of us would react to the CNN user like, damn, this idiot's talking again.

Fuck democracy. That's a horrible standard for good verses bad. And no, I'm not a nazi. Ancap. You don't have a right to vote on how other people will live their life. You are not oppressed if you are excluded from democracy. You are simply not imagining yourself to have a right to boss other people around.

Oh no, someone won't get their democracy. Of all the things for someone to be without that's the worst one. Take their rights, take their things, take their dignity, throw them in prison for doing drugs, and kill them for selling cigarettes,. but don't take their democracy because that will be the worst thing an ideology will have ever taken from someone. Whist democracy itself has taken things of real value, as many ideologies have. Democracy is the least valuable thing any ideology has taken.

All I'm saying is that democracy can't be the pan-ultimate of human values if it's literally on the bottom of the barrel of things that matter more. It can't be used to determine if an ideology is good or bad. Whether or not you have control over your temporal circumstances. Whether or not you have enough to eat. Whether or not you are free from violence. Some of these some might argue are mutually exclusive but each of them is more easily argued to be a pan-ultimate of measuring good vs bad in a society's structure (and thus the ideologies the controls society's structure) than whether or not someone got some petty dole of essentially zero say in how their society works.

Aren't those the same thing? Every firearm is legal at some point, at least most. An illegal firearm is one possessed by someone other than its owner. That's essentially its only meaning. Or in the case of states with mandatory registration, one transferred without registration (and thereby in the eyes of the state owned by someone besides the one possessing it).

Epstein had a female jewish handler. The NIXIM cult (also involved in human trafficking) had a female jewish handler with ties to the formation of Israel.

You know being the main guy running a human trafficking operation is not a fun job to do. There's a lot of risk. Usually in humint you get some "asset" to do the high risk jobs who similarly is under control by blackmail.

There are a lot more of these than we've even mentioned the name of. And now it's believable that a pizza shop in DC might have been doing something similar to at least three other groups with very similar circumstances (Epstein, finders, NIXIM), that all have political connection, and intelligence connections, and do sexual human trafficking. I guess comet ping pong is the fourth.

I have doubts on the illegal handguns part but almost all of them are going to be handguns legal or illegal. Rifles just aren't used in crime except for the statistically insignificant and diminishing mass shootings. I guess it would be more accurate to say in televised mass shootings. The majority of mass shootings are gang related and also done by handguns.

Now whether or not the people who made these deplatforming suggestions on your forum are actually members of your community or not is another question. Maybe we should look at their account age because you claim they are alt from this arch enemy character. If the response to these suggestions was overwhelmingly positive and these people are well know regular in your group and no one said.. that's a really stupid idea.. deplatforming isn't cool.

I did an analysis a while back where I looked to see how far back one would have to go before two currencies exchange rate deviated by more than 15% from the current exchange rate. For US, China's currency is the furthest back, which indicates that our currencies are practically pegged, at least compared to us and the Pound and us and the Euro.

Yes, they inflate a lot.. but because of our own quantitative easing it's relatively similar. This was about 3 years ago that I did this.

It turns out that teaching people that all other people owe you something for your particular and specific identity not only makes people who are useless for capitalism but also makes them useless for communism.. because it just makes useless people.

'See? Not Radical': New Poll Shows Nearly Two-Thirds of Americans Support a Wealth Tax to Fund Universal Programs by tyrdhead in politics

Nope. Easy. I myself plan to leave. Automatically it will be very easy for me to have no wealth in the US. While there is no wealth tax the IRS isn't going to be tracking payment to foreign accounts from personal banking like they would from a corporation whose purpose (as is all corporations) is to convert funds into personal income for share holders.

The IRS currently only cares about hiding income, not wealth.

You can even walk with cash into foreign countries. They love it. Their customs will not complain. Some countries actually require that you do it if you plan to stay a long time. They see that as money going into their country.

The other way to "get rid of wealth" is to "spend it." Wealth is income minus spending. If you spend it it's no longer wealth. This is where cash is an issue. If I go to the ATM and take out cash, who's to say I didn't spend it? Well instead I can just sit on it.. or spend it on something that retains value but the government doesn't know I spent money on. I can lend it to someone as an off the books loan, or put it into a black market business. That's the real problem with this tax.. it is going to result in so much finance for organized crime. Bookies will be handing out loans like candy because there will be a lot that fill have floated them money.

That would never work though. It would depend on how you define wealth. People will change the nature of their wealth to fit what isn't taxed. That and your wealthy will just move seeing as almost no other countries have a wealth tax. Going to some obscure place like the Cayman Islands won't be necessary. For the most part we are talking about old people. People who have already earned their money. They are just going to retire out of country.

And what I'm saying is not contrary to the idea that the super wealthy have most of the wealth. Warren Buffet, the Rothchildes, Bill Gates, are all retirement age. They can live anywhere, and will. And so will Grandma and Grandpa if you try to tax that bracket of wealth.

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.

Vegetables aren't vegan. That's right, if they were grown with manure or other animal products, they aren't good enough. Because obviously artificial chemical fertilizers are the way to go. Even though manure is the best way to convert dirt to soil that we know of. by Chipit in news

Artificial fertilizers.. where do they think the nitrates for that come from? Probably animal products, unless you want to take nitrogen electrically out of the air, which is a near pointless process.

You could try duel booting or virtualboxing linux and see if you like its shell more. About 50% of linux users live in the shell so you know it's going to be good. I personally use Manjaro because it's easy setup and it has a straight forward desktop unlike Ubuntu. That and the AUR means you never have to set up a compile for almost anything because someone has compiled it before and turned it into a script. It means Arch based linuxes like Manjaro have the largest software library of any OS that can run after a one command line install.

This is going to sound crazy but there is some actual evidence of the environmental impact of this and honestly it isn't bad. Just put it in the greatest depths of the ocean. Oceanic disposal of nuclear waste used to be allowed but they ended it fearing that it would have an irreversible impact on the environment. Well, we've had a chance to study these sites today. There has been leaking but there is no indication of any harm to any ocean life. We can further mitigate against impact by putting it in the Marianas trench, where there is already very little life, the weight of the atoms will keep them from coming up from such a tall column of water, and it's so remote.

One of the problems with current disposal is that no matter what you make the container out of it will leak eventually. If you stick it under a mountain in New Mexico within 1 million years it will leak. That material then will be destined for the ocean like all liquids do, but it will contaminate a lot of drinking water along the way and forever change the environment of that area long after humans are gone. So you can't depend on leak prevention. You have to put it where it will have the least impact when it does leak, and studies of current leaking sites in the ocean indicate it doesn't seem to have a problem there.

http://large.stanford.edu/courses/2017/ph241/jones-a2/

The only example of nuclear waste disposal with negative consequences is semolina where it's being dumped with no containers to slow the release and directly near the coast.

If you put it in the marianas trench it will stay there.

I wouldn't call that invasive. All it's doing is automating attendance in a class. He could just take actual attendance or have you sign in at the front of the class when you come in. He probably should just do that but he likely needs an excuse to use technology and or doesn't want to do data-entry every week (but doesn't mind coding likely an equal amount of time).

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.

If we wanted to claim that an object causes something to happen we would compare the ratio to how many exist. I know there are fewer doctors than guns. Doctors cause malpractice.

As for hitting and kicking. We have 1.2 guns per person in the US. We have 4 hands/feet per person in the US (though there may be errors in that estimate). A gun has a 2x higher chance of killing someone than a hand or foot. Even so I think it's time we literally disarm people.

Of course that doesn't mean people should have an irrational fear of guns. If you see someone with a gun you should be no more afraid than if you saw someone with four arms. Or a room with two people in it. When someone claims distress about seeing a gun in a grocery store they should realize that all the hands and feet in the store combined should have together sent them into a panic attack. Technically a single person with both hands and feet should be scarier than a gun, 2x so.

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.

In July 2015 Google invested $100 million into Crowdstrike -- which is why they defend Russiagate and hate Trump by fizzyj in notasking

Amazon hates Trump because their business model is optimizing the path from China to consumer until there is no area of efficiency a competitor could discover.

Amazon is guaranteed to remain one of the top retailers so long as trade from China is never interrupted.

Bezos literally bought a newspaper to smear anyone who interrupts his business.

Whether Trump should be doing that or not doesn't matter. What matters is that that's the reason they hate him.

They don't care what outsiders think anymore because they think those on their side will be 50%+. And then it doesn't matter if from the outside you look deranged. The problem is that's going to make a lot of people leave them and they will be less than 50%. Of course then they will claim they were victimized and that democracy somehow wasn't democratic.

Or someone who sees conflict as an opportunity to play the victim card. That one mosque is going to get so much zakat from all over the country thinking that they are giving money to the front line of a war. Those Imam's will be rich. But Muslims should recognize that they would be giving money to something now operating as a criminal organization violating RICO by instructing people to illegally carry weapons in NYC.

If law enforcement wasn't cucked we could get so many arrests out of this.

I honestly don't know, that's why I'm asking. I know there was that trans dude that got shot but they at least fired the person who did it and apologized.
