Once in awhile Cutter...you really surprise me. I guess that's on me. IMHO, your anarchy take is spot on. I don't claim to be a history buff or extremely well read on the subject but in my life experience there have been anarchists (very few) and then there are people who think that what they perceive as "anarchist behavior" can accomplish their goals (much much more frequent). The latter aren't anarchists of any kind really. They are just people desperate to find any means to their ends. They condemn and abandon the philosophy as soon as they get whatever it is they think they want.

What does that have to do with the documentary? Cutter sets up a ridiculously ignorant strawman of what he fantasizes anarchism to be and then disagrees with it, and that unironically impresses you?

Freedom without responsibility is anarchy. The US isn't an anarchist state. Absolute freedom does not exist there or in any other country for that matter.


You seem uninformed about what anarchism is. Luckily there's an excellent three part documentary free on youtube if you want to learn:

Part 1 https://youtu.be/JZ-utvfgK8Q
Part 2 https://youtu.be/77GKgbUGJK0
Part 3 https://youtu.be/M6pysEKlg0Q

Might open your eyes, unless you'd rather keep them closed.

Oh please, I've forgotten more about political dogma than you'll ever know. Anarchy comes from ancient Greek meaning 'self-rule' or 'without-rule'. All those anarchist movements of the past? They weren't anarchist movements. They were anarcho-syndicalist movements. Pro-tip: If you belong to a movement that espouses anarchy...you're not an actual anarchist. Stop listening to the idiots on Youtube and pick up an actual history book or two sometime.

Oh I bet you have. I know you're among the thickest numbnuts around here and expecting you to approach anything at all with an open mind is a fool's errand, which is why I really shared the link for the benefit of others in the crowd. Had you watched even ten minutes of the documentary you would've found that it comprises of interviews of professors, historians, philosophers and other experts who with 100% certainty know more about the topic than some canadian high-school dropout boomer, but there we go. Go on, look up the list of interviewees and count the PhDs and tell me again how much more you know than them.

I loved the first game, which was a pleasant surprise because I generally don't have the patience for adventure games these days. It's probably the only adventure game I've finished since the 90s. The individual stories are nice and contained so there's very little annoying wandering where you don't know know where to go let alone what to do. Looking forward to this.

I wonder what a jury of programmers would have thought of it?

If they've ever actually read any of the contracts they've signed instead of just assuming they can do whatever with no repercussions because their skills make them special, I imagine many would understand that whatever they worked on at a company isn't theirs.

I'm a biochemist. If I took off with some research I've worked on not only would I be in a world of legal trouble, but I would likely never work in research ever again nor would I expect to. And I certainly wouldn't be making snide tweets like some spoiled child.

He steals from and screws over his old employer for Facebook, destroys evidence in a hilariously clumsy way because apparently this "genius" can't shred files without googling it, and then tries to play the victim about how they're meanies who hold an unreasonable grudge against him, is my (no doubt unpopular) hot take on this.

That was certainly a compelling and fascinating read.

I'm sorry to see so many people here find pseudoscientific nonsense compelling, but not surprised. The bullshit asymmetry principle is just made for this crap: the Jennifer Margulises of this world can spew scientifically illiterate tosh at a rate that actual rational scientists can't hope to keep up with, and the scientifically illiterate public keep enabling them. I'm glad there are still some who keep trying, in this particular case right here, but really it's a losing fight. The writer here is a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, whereas Jennifer Margulis has no medical or biochemical training and is a long-time anti-glysphosate crusader who publishes in non-peer reviewed predatory journals ie. an ideologue and not any kind of an expert on the topic. She also claims glyphosate causes autism, and will 100% blame glyphosate for the next big health topic as well.

Developing a mindset that values critical thinking takes time, but some good places to start would be:

Yeah, this is John Carmack, not John von Neumann. He's talented for a regular person, but he's still a regular person, not a genius.

Step off the stage Mr Simpleton, that's simply bullshit, he's obviously a genius. He's pretty much the definition of one.

Like I said, John von Neumann is an example of a genius, John Carmack is an example of a smart guy who's good at a thing. Can you not see the massive difference between them?

I bought a random cheap gaming mouse to hold me over for a while when my Logitech MX518 broke, and it's been about a decade and it's only now starting to fail (the wheel is a bit hard to depress in some positions, although it still works). That Logitech broke in a year or two, but this one feels like it'd happily go another decade if I didn't mind the wheel. Never heard of the company before or since (Sharkoon). Probably should've gotten another one from them, but there was a nice deal on a Logitech so I guess I'll give them a go again.

If FO4 is any indication TESVI isn't going to look much like an RPG anymore. I guess they could take another turn in their design philosophy, but considering how much money FO4 made them I don't imagine they see any need to.

As for ESO it's actually pretty fun and the world feels genuinely Elder Scrollsy. I got it last summer and played through the thieves' guild storyline and promptly lost interest, but just recently started playing again and am fairly entertained. It's less immersive than a single player RPG, but the world is huge and it's nice to explore pre-TES Tamriel and you can play it perfectly fine as a single player game.

They're basically pulling a Sean Murray by pretending the game isn't a bit of a wreck. I guess most of the problems are too fundamental to fix at this point so might as well not acknowledge them.

Report finds chemicals in one-third of fast food packaging

I for one find this very worrisome. Two thirds of fast food packaging is apparently made of magic and no one's talking about this? Did Big Chemical silence Food Babe or what?
