Re: What is Wrong with me (my malfunction)????

per full metal jacket, why list that one only, of the list i provided its is lesser work that 3/4 of the rest. Your thread title was a reference to that specific movie, so I specified the same. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD4q3leE5Uw I never claimed to be "Special" ( or "better" per your labeli...

Re: The Existential Crisis

There are various meanings of what is an existential crisis. Here is an argument to justify the substance of the existential crisis pulsating from an algorithm with the brain/mind of a person; 1. All humans are "programmed" [no God involved] to survive at all costs. 2. To ensure survival, any aware...

Re: The Existential Crisis

FFS, let's just get it out of the way quickly. 1. Trying to railroad me with silly shit like that has never worked before, and it won't be working this time either. 2. Aquafresh presented his attempt at a philosophical argument in the normal form - it was just malformed. 3. I assessed it in the stan...

Re: The Existential Crisis

intellectual masturbation. Those are the only two wordcs you really needed there. There's a concept of scope that you lack. If you have a grand idea about how all of logic is bullshit, then make that case to anyone who is still interested in discussing that stuff with you. Hijacking small conversat...

Re: Is Affirmative Action The Only Viable Answer?

Of course there are laws against discrimination which people who suspect themselves victims of discrimination can appeal to. I suppose that may be a sufficient answer instead of quotas. I don't think it's sufficient to just make everyone promise not be racists and hope that works out, I just prefer...

Re: Will saving for a rainy day come back in fashion?

Wow! There's billions to be made here. South Africa's interest rate is at 7.25% All you people with surplus cash suffering negative interest rates, come buy all of our debt and undercut our reserve bank. That's a normal activity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot_money Although obviously 7.25% puts...

Re: Will saving for a rainy day come back in fashion?

I see the brilliant amod removed my response to your mealy-mouthed and predictably PCturdish insult, along with my explanation of the Govt. here, which you seem to be entirely ignorant of. Oh well. You might have learnt something from it, instead of resorting to silly 'hero-worship'. I saw it, I do...

Re: Will saving for a rainy day come back in fashion?

And there you have it. Saving up is about to become a punishable crime, with fines levied by negative interest rate. Canada is posting a negative rate of inflation (-0.2 so let's not get carried away) https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/inflation-rate-april-covid-1.5576581 The UK has just issued its fi...

Re: Is Affirmative Action The Only Viable Answer?

It seems to me like quotas really are the only thing that can make things "equal". Of course, that means authority stepping in and regulating various social processes to ensure that quotas are met. I know a lot of people wouldn't approve of that but what else can be done to mend these apparent dysf...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

Some allopaths, laymen and most Naturopaths agree with me. From my experience, it's the terrain. Time after time I've proven to myself it's malnutrition, toxicity and stress that makes me sick, not germs. My health is not affected by whether I come into contact with lots of filth or not, whether I ...

Re: perspective, based only in the numbers

Challenge the numbers or challenge the perspective. You refuse to discuss the perspective though. When challenged you replied... Man, if you don't or can't see it ain't nuthin' I can post is gonna move you. You got your perspective; I got mine. Why ask to be challenged on a subject that you just ex...
