  1. Wait, where is this happening exactly? I suspect the voices in your head mostly. There’s lots of opportunity to address inequality, but this is not the path... nor is this the thread. While I applaud your vigorous brother of the Marseillaise shtick, it’s totally off topic.
  2. If I had to guess, his objective is to get himself banned so he can go tell others how bad of a forum this is / what a successful troll he is, etc. I also suspect I'll now receive his kind-hearted Jesus-guided loving words in response to this post here.
  3. That's too bad. I appreciate correction. It helps me become better.
  4. I don’t recall neg repping you, but responses like this really motivate me to more seriously consider doing so
  5. I will surely be shedding copious tears into my pillow tonight thanks to your disapproval. Have you no decency, sir? On another note, for someone who picked the username “I do not care,” you sure do seem to care quite a bit about some rather trite trivial sh-tuff...
  6. But not disgusting. Someone’s obviously just here to stir the pot and rake the muck
  7. You mean incite, not insight. If you dislike the topic area, just ignore it. No need to impose your personal preferences on every other single member here. Many of us enjoy discussing political topics with other reasonable intelligent members. If that’s not you, just move along. Practically speaking, these topics always come up anyway, so at least by having a dedicated subforum for it we can avoid them polluting the more pure science threads where people like you may prefer to focus.

  9. Can we please just agree that the risk from knives is not equivalent to the risk from firearms and move on from this silly tangent? Yes. Not perfect, but much better
  10. Yes. You’re so totally right. I’m finally busted. I’ve spent years and years setting up sock puppet accounts, one with nearly 5,000 posts and a positive rep of almost 1,600, then another with almost 22,000 posts and a positive rep of nearly 5,600... and I’ve setup these profiles ALL just so I could draw attention away from an idiot topic created by you... a user with nearly 3 whole posts... a user who joined this community like almost 2 hours ago. Damnit! Well done, Nancy Drew. Sherlock’s got nothing on you. I humbly submit to your clearly superior intellect. No offense, but go away moron. ✌️
  11. Oh, good. I was hoping you’d just copy paste an entire website into one post with no commentary of your own. That’s so much better than actual discussion on an actual discussion forum. Bravo. Thanks for not failing to disappoint 👌
  12. There are only two possible outcomes. Either he wins a 2nd term, or he claims it was rigged.
  13. You only have a few minutes after submitting while you still can edit it. Also, since you're a brand new member, you may have some additional restrictions on your profile until you have more posts submitted. If it's urgent, just click the Report Post button on the top right and request a mod edit it for you
  14. Yes, as a concept, of course it exists. The challenge is that it's roughly equivalent to the concept of awesomeness or attractiveness. There's no there there... as you agree, it differs from one person to the next. So, in a way, both you AND the OP are correct, but not as correct as me who's instead here saying... who cares?
  15. She apparently hasn’t met the same Canadians I have. They’re a pretty unruly lot.
  16. He launched yet another weapon of mass distraction
  17. Lol. Which one? Zeus? Apollo? FSM? It seems your god makes lots of snowflakes Old Testament then? You mean HER, right? God is little more than an ambiguously defined 3-letter word with exaggerated cultural significance
  18. Your higher critical functions can affect your more autonomous functions. Think of a fear or attractive loved one and your heart accelerates. Think of a gentle breeze or waves at the beach and your heart and related functions slow. I may not fully comprehend what you’re describing, but my first instinct is that this is not only common, but expected. Our thoughts and breathing have a tremendous impact on our physiology. It’s at the heart of meditation. Some of what happens within us occurs even absent executive control or higher critical intervention, but this does not mean these same processes cannot be influenced or affected or overridden by those higher processes. For example, you can consciously decide to hold your breath and stop breathing... but only to a point. Eventually, the more archaic reptilian parts of your brain will say, “hey idiot, stop that” and will take over so these processes persist even if you pass out. Honestly, this just sounds like you’re focusing on some things and noticing physiologist changes while you do that. Not really a big deal unless I’m totally missing what you’re trying to describe.
  19. You AND the OP What's extravagant to one will not be to another. Why should we give a damn what either of you do or don't think is extravagant?
  20. Speaking of wish lists, your threshold between what is extravagant versus what is not seems rather arbitrary and based on your own personal subjective preferences.
  21. Oh, what sweet delicious irony. Everyone else's imaginary friends are imaginary, but my imaginary friend is real. Lol

    Yes. Evolution requires time. As does essentially every other thing across the entirety of everything.

    And if your position made any sense whatsoever I’d further engage with it, but alas... this will be my final comment here.
