vane9620310dTell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?
Wisecrack5875310d@vane thanks for the upvote. Your validation fulfills me. My life is now complete and I see no reason not to drink the poison koolaid to join our lord and master, zuckerberg, in heaven. may the upvotes flow like wine, and may you be reborn in his glory as a ritalin addled android/lizard person as he has.
rolexpo388310dDamn I love the last quote.
This is a story as old as time. Keep the masses preoccupied with junk and lies so they will not rise up to challenge you.
jeeper5499310dThis stance is problematic. Pastoral life is alluring for its freedom from the persecution driven assholes that surround us. Perhaps also the physical results of the work. But that is not at the root of what you are saying.
Hate, anger, use of force, all learned behaviors. Can they be unlearned? It’s not clear but if we can avoid wiping ourselves out I look forward with hope for the next 80,000 generations rather than backward with regret at the previous 80,000. It took that long to get here, it will take at least as long to get away.
The transistor is the greatest tool ever invented, as evidenced by its manufacturing numbers. However it is a tool. It is as much a force for good or evil as the person who wields it. Electronic escapism is not a problem if you don’t build a society you have to run from.
fzammetti831310dSo, what I think you're saying is... more cat videos?
"disease so deadly you have to be tested to know if you even have it"
You are getting tested to make sure you won't infect those who can recognize they can't suddenly breathe without tests.
Past half a year truly exposed how western people are unable to grasp the idea of "i'm doing something for benefit of others, not myself" while it's normal in Asia to use a face mask to prevent infecting others even if you have a common cold.
Root78039297dHave a favorite.
The world is a depressing place, and I don’t think there’s any saving it. Best to make my little corner as pleasant as I can, I suppose. Doing anything more just brings down ire and scorn from others.
