A guy who thinks. Or at least thinks he thinks. Maybe if I were smart I would know. I just don't know. Hopefully I can get some help with this issue here.
mriana: “…did I mention I hate Capitalism?”
No, but if I had to guess, I’d say you’re at least mildly unhappy with it.
Capitalism wouldn’t have the unearned position of being the only game in town if all the other alternatives weren’t demonized. Socialism is more vile a swear word than the “F”-word to most people. I don’t know anyone who…[Read more]
mriana: “You cannot have capitalism, without greed and oppression.”
In some crowds, uttering those words is enough to get you shunned at best and beat-up at worst.
The mindless love of capitalism is 100% religious thinking… zero facts and lots of emotion used to push it and continue believing it.
When the masses finally understand your…[Read more]
I’ve known about her for years. Didn’t know she is Canadian though. Yay us!!
I used to watch her a bit, but not as much as Mr. Deity, nonstampcollector, or a few other great parody series on Youtube.
It’s been a few years since I’ve seen one of her videos so it’s nice to see she’s still around.

I stand in awe of your ability to stay sane while trying to communicate with the unreachables. Even though I know they can’t/won’t learn, I still get frustrated when they don’t. It’s a flaw in my personality that prevents me from enjoying this like you do (or at least appear to enjoy.)
As at teeny tiny silver lining to your…[Read more]
manases: “What are aliens doing here?
Assuming they are here. So this is a question for the believers. (I am a believer too)
Because you are right – if you think about it, we cannot be of any interest to any advanced alien civilization.
But they are here! (They say). So… we are of interest to them?”
Hey manases. Your certainty without justi…[Read more]

“KKK is not a problem if there are no non-Whites around to attack.”
Silly me- until now I thought even internet trolls had a limit to their stupidity, but there appears to be no bottom to the barrel of ignorance this one draws from.
I don’t participate here much because just reading the moron’s side of the conversation bums me out and any attempt…[Read more]
Just my opinion here:
I don’t think that aliens with the ability to travel between stars to investigate us will hang out where we can see them. They’d be aware of our technology, so would either stay far enough away that we can’t see them or they would camouflage/cloak themselves.
Also, why would aliens even be here? Space is big. Evidence of…[Read more]
I’m going through them backwards from page 193 (I’m at 170). This post is just to save the page I’m on, there’s nothing special about this link.
I stumbled upon this forum that has a thread dedicated to political cartoons.
There are thousands of them in the thread (it goes back to 2015 and the Trump cartoons from then are eerily prescient), so you won’t be able to see them all unless you spend hours, but I know you…[Read more]
Don’t worry, I understand what you’re saying.
Some people think every rule is a burden and infringement. Only when those people understand that a society without rules is not a society at all, will we make meaningful progress. Until then we’ll improve in fits and starts while they whine try to drag us backwards.
If your personality…[Read more]
A million cameras randomly pointed at the sky will accumulate a ton of data but, without useful organization of that data, no information. Without knowing how you will identify anomalies and catalogue them, I can’t comment on how useful this might be.
Organizing your data will be a hard.
Convincing a large number of people to link their phones…[Read more]
CC: “CREATIONIST HAVE NEVER ACTED IN GOOD FAITH – THEY ARE DEPENDENT ON MISREPRESENTING EVIDENCE AND IGNORING TONS MORE.”
log: “This is a generalisation that isn’t necessarily true about everyone who teaches creation.”
Is it? Is it really?
With no examples to counter it, I think it’s a fairly accurate statement. (Citing yourself or some other…[Read more]
I’m assuming (hoping?) that you’ve looked at other larger, professional attempts at finding intelligence in the universe.
These folks did it at a very high level for many years: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_about.php.
If you can’t find some valuable information from them, you’re not going to find it anywhere else since your…[Read more]
CC: “That’s exactly why the right wing seems to be restricted to ad hominem distraction and dismissal by ridicule.”
The problem is that the mind where an ad hominem originates (Trump) is the same kind of mind that hears it and thinks, “Hey, that’s a great argument”, (Trump’s followers).
It’s a big, ugly circle of ignorance that supports it…[Read more]
“Not that I would covet my neighbor’s leader. Would I?”
By all means, covet away. If I’m free to be repulsed by your leader, you’re free to covet mine.
“NO. I must remain in a loveless abusive relationship with a “pretend” leader who cares ONLY for himself. And there’s no help line to call.”
You could come to Canada. But don’t expect the lead…[Read more]
TimB: “Btw, what’s it like to have such a Hunk as a Prime Minister? He seems to be quite the ladies man. I think that Ivanka just wants him for his power, but Kate Middleton clearly has some regular old lust for him. Too bad for the ladies that he seems to be quite in love with his own wife.”
He’s doing a good job. So naturally the Canadian ve…[Read more]
TimB: “Hey, 3point, you’re still Canadian, right? Has your country’s leader said anything of note about the T rump’s recent actions?”
Trudeau is insanely diplomatic and does not criticize openly. So the pause before answering in this video says more than his words.
I love the birds chirping while he struggles to find words.
