Most important tip if you are using AWS for this course and intending to only use the free tier services: 1. Understand exactly what is part of the (free tier)[*all&awsf.Free%20Tier%20Categories=*all&all-free-tier.q=Ebs&all-free-tier.q_operator=AND]. Common mistakes include using an elastic IP and provisioning a larger root volume for your instance than free tier allows (30GB) 2. Set up a billing alarm to (monitor estimated charges)[] 3. For the love of God enable MFA on your root account and any IAM user you create.

This is so dumb. You can't ban individuals from trading it between each other, but you don't fucking buy anything meaningful from individuals these days. You buy groceries, pay rent/mortgage, fill your gas tank, etc. From businesses. Banning businesses from interacting with crypto is how you ban crypto. It's trivial. But you libertarian smooth brains are incapable of rational thought so it's no surprise you don't recognize this.

I don't think we entirely disagree, but I interpreted your earlier comments as excessively charitable to AMD as an entity, and kind of fanboyish. I agree that they do some good things that are worth supporting, but not to the extent that I will hold grudges against Intel or Nvidia, or buy unrelated, unfit or noncompetitive products as a token of loyalty. I'm not going to buy a shitty GPU just because I like that they're developing Mesa/Freesync/etc.

Buying a product that does something you want is a transaction. If you buy an AMD GPU because of their FOSS capabilities and associated efforts, that shows AMD that people like FOSS and that contributing to it (and making hardware that it's designed on/for) earns them money. Buying an AMD CPU because of GPUopen would be unhinged magical thinking nonsense. Voting with your dollar only makes sense if it communicates something about your preferences.

First of all, to be clear, we're talking about social democracies, which you could say are reformed liberal democracies that enacted welfare states in response to the great depression and world war 2. From that perspective, social democratic institutions do look quite a bit like attempts to create a mutually beneficial outcome for capitalists and labor. You don't have to give up your party membership if you accept the premise that this was the intention of some social democratic institutions.

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/SneerClub on January 31, 2023 05:02:24

That's a non sequitur. Obviously social democracies weren't designed by communists, they were designed by people who had different notions of democracy and how to achieve collective action. But the NHS or social security or the FDA were definitely efforts of this kind.

cities need to be densified in order to facilitate efficient use of public transit. A lot of the reason cities aren't as dense as they should be result from car dependence. Some of these problems can be fixed without tearing down existing infrastructure, or with minimal disruption, such as turning parking lots into infrastructure. However, certain policies, like setback minimums and small parking lots/parking requirements will mandate redevelopment.

on top of that, even a good study of this kind is going to output garbage data because what's being studied is literally people's _subjective fucking experiences_. Nobody actually has a full understanding of what's going on inside their own heads, or how it compares to other people's, and the question prompts are bound to be interpreted through the lens of those experiences. There are confounding variables that some people can't even conceptualize because they lack the mental frame of reference of what it's like to experience reality as a different person. Sure, you can enter different mental states that give you the perception of what it might be like to experience even more radically different qualia, but there's no way to know for sure. For an example, some people have extremely powerful religious experiences, or are able to be hypnotized by stage performers and end up experiencing a subjectively dreamlike state where it feels like their body is under the control of another. I've never experienced either (despite opportunities) but i've taken hallucinogens which made me feel similarly to both. but I only _think_ i feel similarly because i have some feeling, and my mind makes connections with descriptions of other people's subjective experiences, but i don't actually know how similar they are at all. It's subjectivity all the way down. People say they do/don't have an inner monologue/dialogue, but i think a large number of them are lying or are just interpreting the same thought processes in radically different ways.

When compared to CEX-issued cryptocurrencies, reward points lack: - a "market based" valuation - the ability to trade, transfer or sell - redemption/exchange at other vendors - the ability to "remove" them from the ecosystem by putting them in cold storage Relatively, credit card reward points are completely honest about what they are. Tiny discounts for marketing purposes.

We need to solve our problems here. If we burned all the fossil fuels on earth and set off every nuclear weapon, it would still be more habitable than Mars.

Wealthy Muslim countries are where they are because of resource extraction. As such, they do not rely on highly developed human capital to produce wealth. Their source of wealth is (primarily) locked to their geographic territory, rather than in the value produced by the knowledge and skills of their population. It seems very clear that Muslim countries which oppress their women could not compete as knowledge economies, their labor force has too much dead weight as a result of keeping women as dependents without economic prospects.

that's true, but a marginal increase in the housing supply would reduce costs over the medium term, as the demand is relatively static in relation to the value of the properties on the market. To put it another way, if all of these retrofitted apartments are luxury apartments, other apartments are now mid-tier by comparison due to worse aesthetics/features/functionality. So assuming a market with no collusion (unfortunately this is probably not the case), we would expect rents to fall on average even if the added supply is luxury housing. Now, the fact that large rental and property management companies are almost certainly engaging in price fixing is a separate problem with a separate solution, but it doesn't mean that building more luxury housing is a bad idea. Of course, there's probably a price floor below which these companies will choose to leave their apartments empty, which is another problem that needs a legislative solution.

DRS is literally a thing that exists, yes good job, you did a pedantry. In practical terms, DRS doesn't mean anything with respect to GME in current year because: 1. hedge funds are not massively sold short so there's no mechanism to force them to cover at outrageous prices when (never, but let's pretend) your moon fantasies come true. They will have plenty of time to offload the moderate short interest that currently exists because DRS numbers are being reported quarterly and this gives them plenty of warning, because they are not stupid 2. The float will not be DRSed under any circumstance, because gamestop will dilute sooner rather than later. 3. Gamestop is a failed company and the inherent value of the stock is much lower than its trading price, since it's propped up by idiots. the only suppression of price discovery here is because of a retail cult that refuses to accurately value the stock.

And if this does happen, what the fuck then? while hedge funds are making money on the way up (because DRS numbers are public and they know what is going on because they're not trapped in short positions and they're definitely not stupid), apes can't sell because it takes a long time to sell DRSed shares. They lose. the end. Even if this incredibly crazy theory is correct, you can't beat them at their own game, and DRSing the float will never, ever happen.

Twitter suppressed that story when it seemed to be hacked/misinfo, as spreading hacked materials violates their TOS. many of those 10 tweets were taibbi breathlessly posting cropped snippets of what appears to be a completely normal conversation between twitter's executive team responsible for moderating this content. Once the story gained some legs, they stopped suppressing it. All of this is normal behavior. What's the problem, other than your lack of critical reading skills?

Bari Weiss and taibbi are professional IdPol scolds, with their supposed nemesis "cancel culture". Meanwhile, their careers are dependent on convincing rubes like you that they have been cancelled by an authoritarian, left media climate. In reality they have amplified their careers by embracing the right-wing narrative about the state of the media. They are the alt-media face of modern right-wing 'respectable journalism', but they are anything but respectable. Claiming no bias is laughable. Glenn greenwald is so reflexively contrarian that he pitched softballs to Alex Jones to promote Jones' fraudulent new documentary. Not a single ounce of pushback to be found. He has a long history of [sucking Putin's nuts] ( and regularly appears on Fox news. Taibbi made his name lambasting the architects of the 2008 crash calling them parasitic thieves stealing from the American people. He made his pivot after 2016, opposing journalists who treated trump the same way he treated the individuals and organizations that facilitated Lehman brothers and Goldman Sachs. Today, his brand exists in opposition to a supposed censorious and biased media. He holds the privilege to speak the truth as he sees it, but refuses the "mainstream media's" right to do the same. Bari Weiss is a Zionist who canceled herself over the firing of the NYT opinion editor, who was himself firing for republishing hard right authoritarian Texas senator Tom Cotton's editorial which promoted violating the civil rights of BLM protesters. Like greenwald and taibbi, her brand depends on threatening readers with the specter of an all powerful left media that can cancel anyone, as if screaming about just that hasn't made her extremely wealthy.

So basically the result of a community built around mocking that is a subreddit that exists to shit on poor and miserable people. Who cares if a large percentage of them could succeed if they worked hard? Someone will need to be flipping burgers either way and those people will be bitching about it, and cunts will tell them to pull themselves up by their bootstraps anyways, not seeing the forest for the trees.

They do. They have representation at the local, county and state levels. Rural people are not a special class of citizen whose lifestyle entitles them to more than 1 vote worth of representation. Rural people are already overrepresented in most states and federally. I agree with you in the sense that our system isn't as representative as it should be, but my solution to that is a legitimate multi-party system with alternative (star/RCV) voting and proportional representation at both the state and federal level. I would like to ally with anyone who wants a more representative democracy, but right-wing extremists have taken over the republican party and they do not want fair elections or equitable representation, they just want power and don't seem to care much about democracy.

It's not like getting high or drunk where you can ride it out and stay buzzed for hours. Personally, the most addictive part of coke for me was the actual act of insufflation.

i (mostly) successfully redirected my dog by teaching her to lick on command. Any time she would get mouthy i would flip my hand over palm up which made her want to lick it, and give my command, she started to pick it up pretty quickly, you could probably put a bit of peanut butter on your hand if it doesn't work initially. The problem is, now she's a licker. but it's a huge improvement.

How is it better than paying in USD over traditional financial applications such as PayPal, credit card, venmo etc. I prefer having a trusted authority to adjudicate transactions and reduce the impact of fraud.

I'm saying we don't know enough to say "how are we any different from input/output systems" in any more than literal terms, which is not a good point at all, it's trivial. So is newton's third law.

> The main line where you rolled off the train tracks is when you said that math is “literally invented”. Not to be too combative, but this is just mathematics pedantry. You are correct that mathematical formulas are discovered rather than invented. when algorithms such as those that underlie neural networks are described, they are often said to have been invented. That's what i was referring to when i said we invented the math for "AI." What you got into a debate about was some other guy snarkily questioning how our brains are different from a very sophisticated linear algebra calculator. The obvious answer is we can describe current AI systems in terms of math. We cannot do so for our brains because we don't understand, and what we do understand makes it clear that we haven't been able to make ML/Neural Networks 'think' very much like us at all. That's a separate discussion from whether we will one day be able to do so, which we agree is theoretically possible but very difficult. This brings us back around to the original claim, which is that people describing ML/Neural Networks/Deep Learning as "AI" are overstating the sophistication of their technology by associating it with higher-level cognition despite scant evidence. That was the reason I replied in the first place, to support this stance.

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/technology on September 27, 2022 01:04:45

Right. I'm not trying to take a stance against the theory that probably everything in existence is reducible to math. But surely you see the difference between math that we not only have the formula for, but literally invented, and cognition, the research on which you could reasonably describe as so incomplete that we don't even know the parameters of the equations from which to build the grand unified equation of human thought. It's a lot like saying that because we have the mathematical formula for the Strong Force, the hypothetical unified field theory equation is just more complicated math. Saying that is probably true but also holds no explanatory power for how close we are to understanding it in terms of math.

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/technology on September 27, 2022 00:25:21

Assuming other people are just faking higher level thought strikes me as a very self-centered and arrogant perspective. More logical to assume that since you are yourself and not them, there is something about their inner lives that you don't fully understand since all you will ever have is a N=1 sample size of the qualia of being human

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/technology on September 27, 2022 00:09:37

What are you talking about? Lol We don't understand human cognition. Hardly at all. On the other hand, we understand ML comparatively very well. So without a solid understanding of how people think, we are unable to explain human thought in terms of math or statistics because we literally don't understand it well enough to describe. However, the obvious deficiencies of ML models mean that we can be very confident that they don't 'think' like we do and cannot ever do so without basically being something else. That's why people say AI is a hype term.

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/technology on September 27, 2022 00:04:46

No, it's not. If it were that simple, we would be able to simulate a human brain at fractional speeds. We don't understand enough about neurology and cognition to simulate a human brain, so saying it's just a really fast calculator is reductive to the point of nonsense. Might as well say "the brain is just really good at thinking and computers aren't."

Most cats are adopted from shelters because they are very successful animals in the wild, while -- at least in north america where most redditors live -- being an invasive species. I think it's possible that my cats have some sort of mental problem, although i doubt it, but the alternative to me adopting them would be that they are euthanized.

The J curve for all cause mortality is important in showing that being underweight is a very bad thing for your health, and that being slightly overweight isn't bad for your health. But it also shows that being obese is a statistically significant predictor of all-cause mortality. And colloquially, most of the people we think of as 'fat' in America are obese due to the prevalence of obesity skewing perception.

Really, I don't know of a single space outside the tankieverse where this is a common sentiment at all. Most reddit progressives recognize that there's a spectrum of people to the right of them, including mainstream Democrats, neoliberals, and never-trumpers. However, it's true that the republican party has recently coalesced around trump, an authoritarian leader. Calling people who've fallen victim to an authoritarian, xenophobic cult of personality which tried to subvert democracy 'fascist' perhaps isn't completely accurate in the academic sense, but there's not much daylight between trump worship -- or Christian Nationalism for that matter -- and fascism.

What are some of these unbiased sources, and what do you see as the primary tenets of longtermism after having read them? Because longtermism grew from Effective Altruism, which has driven some very significant positive outcomes, and some of the initial/foundational conclusions of longtermism, namely that we currently insufficiently prioritize the well-being of future generations, are commendable. But when the ideology verges into the science-fictional (trillions of future individuals, simulated humans, "x-risk" of rogue AI), the probability of which we -- despite the warnings of the longtermists such as bostrom who profit from increased funding -- have no real way of measuring quantitatively, it goes off the rails in spectacular fashion. For example, there is currently no way to assess how likely it is that we will ever be able to simulate one human to the degree that it can be said to have consciousness and therefore rights. We entirely lack the input values necessary to do so. And we also lack the knowledge necessary to assess the probability of being able to scale this system to the order of millions or trillions of beings. At some point, we also need to assess physical limits, which involves the need to assess the probability of interstellar space travel, which we also probably cannot credibly calculate the odds of doing. Ultimately, when we attempt to assess the value of these future people from a utilitarian perspective, it seems clear to me that to do so now would be to engage in technofuturistic speculation a la kurzweil. This is not a solid foundation for making policy, there is no way to balance this hypothetical and perhaps impossible future against the actual long term outcomes of humanity on planet earth. Any policy suggestion that dismisses the latter (ie. Don't worry about climate change, a popular one among longtermists) strikes me as dangerous and self-serving

> As others have pointed out, "overpopulation" is a Malthusian fallacy that has repeatedly been invoked only to be swiftly surpassed. There is no ideal or intended population; it will grow as large as it can be supplied and supported. First, I am not an antinatalist, and overall I agree with your perspective on the mean-spirited and self-defeating nature of the philosophy. I am also not a malthusian, unless you believe it's malthusian to say that there is a theoretical population limit which permits what I would consider an ideal relationship with the ecosystem and the long term viability of our planet, for not only human life but also the wondrous biodiversity of the planet, which I view as our responsibility to steward and not to pollute overmuch in pursuit of reducing human suffering. Overpopulation in the strict sense of "worldwide starvation is imminent, we need fewer people 5 billion people ago" or for that matter even now, or soon, given overall trends in population growth, is malthusian. More, there are obvious logical and humanitarian problems with asserting an end to population growth or forced degrowth. But the earth does have a carrying capacity, there are inherent problems with maximal rejection of physical limits, which you try to sidestep by saying "it will grow as large as can be supplied and supported". Well, yes, in the absence of a contradictory scientific or philosophical perspective that informs policy, of course. that is a truism, and one that does absolutely nothing to contradict Malthus. But your argument suggests a moral calculus that disregards most factors except population, and makes you seem narrow minded even in relation to antinatalist philosophy which has an ecological component in addition to humanitarian. Your argument as written is anthropocentric in the extreme and I view that sort of chauvinism as morally myopic in an inverse sense to antinatalist perspectives. Knowing what we know about the society that exists today, we can say that humans have an inclination to overproduce, engage in mindless consumerism, and think in the period/scope of the human life to the detriment of future generations and beings outside of our built environment. It's easy to say that "well, if we all just went vegan and stopped buying fast fashion and never boarded a plane, earth could easily carry 20 billion people." But that is clearly not what would happen even in whatever post-scarcity fusion-powered eco-punk utopia which facilitates this dream. The human drive to accumulate, pollute, and possess, and in ways that cause damage to precious natural environment, will be with us forever, and climate change is the tip of the iceberg in terms of moral harm done by human activity upon the world. The temperature has risen about 1° C in the past century, a small amount, yet [ Between 1970 and 2012, vertebrate abundance declined by 29 % and, collectively, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals have declined by 58%. The domesticated poultry of humans (primarily chickens) account for two-and-a-half-times the biomass of all wild birds. Reptiles and amphibians have been so thoroughly reduced that they are considered “negligible” as biomass in this current census]( And you could correctly argue that ending factory farming of livestock and reducing fishing to sustainable levels would help some in this regard, but this loss of biodiversity is being driven by habitat loss and human activity. There is a limited amount of arable land to feed people with, and the more you take, the more our natural world is destroyed. That's a moral affront of its own and the solution is simple. Have fewer children. Tldr: just because talk of population policy is squicky and some past racists used it as cover for racism, does not negate the moral imperative to consider the implications of unchecked growth on the non-human world

This is me letting you know that if you think AI will solve material scarcity, you have severe computerbrain and need to touch grass. Physical limits are important and govern the material reality you're able to access. A computer which creates a coherent output in response to "Garfield fucking SpongeBob in the style of the impressionist movement" can't fix the fact that we are unable to feed 7 billion people (with the western diet they all seem to want) without slowly boiling the planet.

Think of it as a password protected bookmark bar in your browser where you keep all the links to the awful monkey jpegs you paid cryptocurrency for. Note, the art itself isn't stored in the wallet. The links aren't really either, if I go to the same link, I can see "your" monkey jpeg in my browser, and download it. You just own the link so technically it's yours according to some blockchain. but if I want to use your monkey picture, you have no recourse. If i try to monetize it the courts may do something, but the party being infringed on is most likely the people who created the art. So what do you own? What did you pay for?

This is both reductive and misleading. Insulin resistance among obese people is not universal, although it's highly correlated.

Eating a healthy diet mitigates insulin resistance but requires impulse control. So yes, it's an impulse control issue.

nobody said books for teen girls are bad because they're for teen girls. Everyone has different reading capabilities, but insecurely seeking approval for not expanding your horizons beyond young adult fiction is embarrassing, and exactly the sort of thing that circlejerk subs mock. > I say this as an English major: YA books can have some literary merit. They can be well-written, there can be things to analyze ok, you can analyze any work of media, so that's not a very convincing argument. I know some are well written, but by and large the genre is formulaic and trope-y. > people mock YA, but not “schlock” genres written for men: action, detective, western, etc. people on /r/books don't constantly extol the virtues of clive cussler or Louis L'amour lmfao > More importantly, YA can introduce people to reading, which is great! More people should read great! i'm on board with that. but if you just use reading for cheap escapism, which is ultimately what confining yourself to one genre (for children) is, it's not actually any better than watching television or movies. This is one of the central conceits of /r/books, that reading _anything_ makes one better than those who choose to consume other forms of media. It's simplistic to measure yourself that way, but I think beyond that, it's true that if you want to engage your brain thinking about what you consume, different media consumption habits can be better or worse. Reading isn't simply better, you have to actually engage with the medium in a way that provokes thought. Beyond a certain point, YA is no longer a source for that. You're meant to outgrow it.

Apart from the climate change issue is the fact that car culture is a driving force in obesity, inequality, atomization of society, a general breakdown in community, high housing costs, disadvantaging small businesses in the market, and time wasted in traffic, to name a few societal ills. We should not force people to live in unwalkable suburbs and drive cars, car suburbs simply do not deserve to be the only housing option available for a huge number of Americans. I wouldn't live in one of I had other viable options, but I don't. You also say that it would be easier to convert to a nuclear-baseload green energy system than to get rid of car ownership, but I see that as equally non-viable.

But more than likely, the creator still owns the image, and a license is being granted via the NFT. After all, the image isn't contained in the NFT itself, because NFTs are just sub-kilobyte size JSON objects written onto the Blockchain that refer back to a webserver URL or IPFS address. That doesn't confer ownership unless the creator explicitly says so, and it's still untested in court.

To them, it's a shared experience just like the concept of a soul. You have no more positive evidence for the existence of a soul than a homeopathy believer has for their nonsense. moreover, anything that is socially constructed has a common language within which to discuss the concept, that doesn't prove something is real any more than western people discussing Elves or Bigfoot, it just means that the concepts are derived from similar cultural understanding.

He's Obama, except a sexual minority rather than a racial minority, which apparently makes him more palatable to racists. And he's taken less seriously so they haven't gone heavy on the homophobia.

I appreciate your optimism, unfortunately I'm a bit more cynical. I don't think that a bad solution's emergence will be the catalyst for people to look for good solutions after the bad solution fails to deliver the desired result. And I don't think that even if it did happen, the positives would outweigh the negatives in the form of Blockchain's implicit legitimization of some extremely silly libertarian economic principles, like that deflation is good for currency, or that central banking is unnecessary for proper functioning of a currency

Ok, great. But if your overall point is that these types of attacks invalidate the use of any database at all, that doesn't follow, because the inability to roll back is a feature of append only databases, which makes Blockchains uniquely vulnerable to this sort of attack. If the point is to be trustless, failure modes that are fixed by a trusted authority form the core weakness of the system

Your last paragraph defines the better solution you should be arguing for in place of NFTs. Like a lot of problems supposedly solved by Blockchain, it's not actually a technological problem at all, it's a cultural/societal problem. you can't solve one with the other

It's not 'that easy' but it doesn't have to be in order to ruin trust in a trustless system which inherently lacks a central authority which can adjudicate. There are also other ways to get hacked or lose your property which are solved by existing institutions for which crypto has no solution. Like phishing, or compromise of a 3rd party wallet company. Somehow I don't think "not your keys, not your coins" will satisfy someone who lost their house because metamask or whoever used Admin/Password. And in the end, property rights are guaranteed by the government, not a Blockchain. The Blockchain can't put someone in jail for squatting in my house while I'm on vacation. Trust is necessary for physical systems, you can't just replace all that infrastructure with a computer program. Once again, Blockchain is a non-solution for a solved problem.

That's not the case at all, you should look up real world examples of smart contract exploits. Nothing about a scenario where malicious code makes a transaction to steal your assets violates atomicity.

what about either scenario implies a lack of atomicity?

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/gme_meltdown on July 20, 2022 10:30:35

so what happens if someone drops a smart contract in your wallet that steals your home title? do they then own your home? I would think the "legal framework" would say no. So there would need to be some way for the blockchain to rollback the transaction or otherwise prove you still own your home. But then you're basically just removing the point of the blockchain. This is just the first problem that comes to mind, but i'm sure there are more. What about if you lose access to your wallet? is your home no longer yours if you can't prove ownership? Obviously it would make more sense to have a 3rd party to confirm the record of ownership is in fact valid. but wait... they'd need to charge fees for this service? hm sounds like a title company. this is all so very stupid. Oh well, i'm sure a use case will appear someday!

You don't understand the stock market, but let's entertain your stupid notion for a second. If hedge funds are using dark pools to do what you say now, they were also doing so in January 2021, when the reported short interest was over 5x what it is now. So did they get over 5x better at it in a year in change? But wait. If the squeeze only went to $375, and your floor is 120,000,000, they'd have to be shorting over 1.5 million times more super special secret shares. And why would they do that, after the squeeze already played a role in the bankruptcy of one hedge fund? They'd have to be simultaneously the most powerful organization on earth, while also being absolutely the dumbest. Occam's razor is a concept you should familiarize yourself with. But I know you won't. Have fun with your copium, baggie

🤡🤡 you absolute idiot. The total dollar value sold short is 1.8b. the short interest is below 25%. If this-- and I can't stress how absolutely off the wall insane this theory is -- _absolute lunacy_ didn't happen during the squeeze, when short interest was over 100% and dollar value sold short was twice as high as it is now against a relatively tiny market cap, it won't happen. The _floor_ is $120 million per share? That would make the market cap of GameStop 8.8 QUADRILLION DOLLARS. That's over 100 times the gdp of the entire planet. For one company: a chain of used video game stores. You are too stupid to use the internet. Log off for good, for your own sake. i mean it.

and the producers have a shit ton of data that informs them about when they should reduce the price of their games, which they still keep the majority or all of the profit from. Every company, with the exception of nintendo -- who have their own strategy that works for them and also doesn't include NFTs -- does this. So again, why would they allow people to resell used games, and take a 10% (or whatever) cut when they can just drop the price of their game to the same price the used game would be resold for, and keep a far larger percentage? you people have overdosed on hopium.

Some people make successful, formulaic, low effort music. It's ok to point that out. I just thought it was interesting that your comment seemed to imply that you found it offensive that someone called trap trash but not with the way they compared it to another genre that's commonly criticized for being trash. For the record I think there's a lot of low effort/commercial music of every genre and pointing that out isn't offensive, it's just realistic. Im not in tune with trap enough to say whether it's the specific artists being referenced here or other ones, but there's no reason to pretend that every artist is an artiste. I don't like country either but I know enough to respect artists like Chris Stapleton and disrespect Florida Georgia line.

The only schools with tuition policies such as OP describes are in the top 25 or so as far as I'm aware. Your ivies, Stanfords and other colleges with huge endowments. Being able to pay for your child to go to one of those colleges, choosing not to, and telling them to go to a much worse in state school, or take out loans, makes you a dogshit parent. The value of an ivy league education is absolutely insane compared to a regular college, you'd have to be a real asshole to not want that for your child. Or bad with money, which again is asshole behavior

That doesn't demonstrate value, and even if it did, it's incorrect. Because of bitcoin's technological deficiencies, it has been centralized on the mining end _and_ the transactional end by large conglomerates which act as de facto regulators. But since they don't actually have regulatory controls and standards requiring them to act ethically and within some sort of legal structure (other than KYC in the case of some exchanges), "regulation" in Bitcoin is just market manipulation. That's not an asset and it doesn't improve bitcoin’s utility as a currency. Speaking of currency, it can never be one because of many reasons, chief among them transaction rate. If Bitcoin was a good currency, why would stablecoins need to exist? Few butters understand

> The heads of Goldman Sachs, Google, Blackrock, Bridgewater, Microsoft, Disney, etc... are all people advocating for these policies. This is hilarious. None of these groups want their industries to be regulated, unless they can get preferential treatment via regulatory capture, most famously Disney which has extended copyright protections more times than I care to remember. Want to know who did that, each time? _congress_, most recently via the Copyright act of 1976 These organizations are in the business of buying influence, they don't need the administrative state to do so, they already buy congresspeople. Oil and gas, mining, and heavy industry are the legacy industries which most want to abolish the regulatory state because their businesses have the most negative externalities which regulations seek to curb, at those industries' expense, and rightly so. Subjecting air and water cleanliness regulation to Congress sounds like a right wing dream. Because it is, those industries have bought congresspeople and supreme court justices trying to make it happen Everything else you wrote is conspiratorial dissembling to deflect the causes of populism onto your boogieman, when the blatantly obvious answer: MONEY IN POLITICS.

Every democracy hands regulatory power to bureaucrats. Nothing about American democracy is exceptional in that regard, and you couldn't be more wrong about the rise of populism. The rise of populism is a reaction to the media environment and the fact that people perceive that our _elected leaders_ don't represent us. Because the way we elect them is broken and the supreme court has institutionalized corruption by allowing citizens united and striking down the voting rights act. Our elected officials are owned by the wealthy and special interests. That's the really undemocratic aspect of our society. It has almost nothing to do with unelected bureaucrats, nobody knows or cares what the FAA or USPTO does, and pretending that they're why we got trump is frankly beneath you, since apparently you can write in whole, coherent sentences.

>At worst, the president just has to take the regulations, proposed by the EPA, and then submit them to Congress as a bill. Are you saying that wouldn't be a catastrophe? Because it absolutely would be. The executive has too much power precisely because Congress is completely incapable of doing this. Congress is paralyzed by bicameralism and the filibuster, and held hostage by a party that doesn't believe in government. giving them more responsibility all but guarantees nothing will be done. Which is of course what the conservative supreme court justices want.

because the fundamentals of an economy vulnerable to hyperinflation have almost nothing in common with the US economy. In order for hyperinflation to occur, your economy needs to suddenly experience a severe drop in productivity and/or your currency needs to be devalued _relative to other currencies_. Unless something's changed in the last 30 seconds, the US Dollar is still the world's dominant reserve currency (aka valuable compared to other currencies because lots of countries hold it in reserve thus there's a high demand) and the US is still the largest economy in the world.

The real problem is that we haven't solved the basic issue of human wants and needs exceeding the available resources. Our economic system requires the complete destruction of the natural world because externalities are systematically unaccounted for, and institutions which can ensure they are priced in are disincentivized from doing so by money. It's not just the challenge of quantifying the loss of the Amazon rainforest or the ogallala aquifer, it's the complete abdication of the notion that we not only should, but _must_ do so or be complicit in untold levels of future suffering.

if a company goes out of business, shareholders and debtors will be paid from the liquidation of the company's assets. Unless you are aware of a company whose assets were worth less than .00001% of its ATH stock price, i'm right. Maybe Enron fits the bill, but i don't think anyone would reasonably believe that tesla is engaged in outright fraud like enron.

Pedantry incoming. This shows you don't understand cryptocurrencies, or the stock market, or both. UST crashed 99x... Three consecutive times. It's not possible for a real company to crash that hard even if it literally goes out of business, because even with a complete failure, stocks are based on some fundamental productive capacity of a business, such as tesla's IPs and battery contracts and factories. Crypto's value, on the other hand, is based on how much you can sell it to a Greater Fool for, ie. Absolutely nothing fundamental That being said, I'd love for Tesla to be brought back to earth.

It's eventually going to happen regardless, because the asahi Linux team has some incredibly talented developers working on reverse engineering the GPU code. This legislation won't affect that process but it will hasten similar efforts in the future and that's what excites me because apple has become such a compelling hardware company

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/technology on May 20, 2022 10:03:57

> But in my view Apple is more of a hardware company that provides access to write programs for their iOS. But in very tight parameters. I agree this is valuable. And hopefully if this legislation comes to pass, there can still be some guardrails to preserve the original Mac development experience. I'm biased as well because in all likelihood I am buying a MacBook pro as soon as asahi Linux is stable, after not using an apple product since the iPhone 3, because the idea of ARM Mac hardware combined with the Linux developer experience is so attractive to me

In your opinion, why is breaking the walled garden bad? This would give people like the asahi Linux crew direct access to the M1 GPU driver so that they can have an easier time creating their own open source version . It seems great to me.

Hi, freeway expansion does induce demand, and worse, is inefficient, wasteful, environmentally destructive, historically economically discriminatory, promotes the usage of cars for intra-city transportation, results in more usage of land for parking, and diverts funds from more efficient mass transit programs. Quite simply, it is unsustainable and we need to move towards a future where cars are not necessary for urban living and working. The future of cities is not Houston, it's NYC/London/Tokyo/Amsterdam/Barcelona/Paris On the other hand, I don't think we can build our way out of the homeless crisis, although building more and eliminating single family zoning is part of the solution to housing affordability which has at least a small impact on the homelessness crisis.

This is conventional wisdom among people who know what a micro 101 supply and demand chart looks like, and love to regurgitate conservative talking points without understanding what they're talking about. but there is insufficient evidence to support this claim, especially when the upside (paying people more) has huge benefits > And especially if mostly mom and pop companies struggle the most to pay the new higher wages leaving Amazon and Walmart to continue to gut them. It's actually profoundly stupid that you would make this argument after saying that people who can't compete in the labor market just need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Maybe those mom and pop shops should just develop more competitive business models? It's time to ask yourself why you feel that individuals who lack the skills to compete in the market deserve no sympathy, but individual business owners in the exact same situation deserve so much sympathy that they should be able to pay as little as they want. The answer, of course, is that they both deserve sympathy, and we can fix the regulatory environment for both without turning it into a zero sum game. But I get the impression you're just a boring conservative without much actual knowledge about this subject.

I went to UvA for a year. And yes, I agree that the American populace has intractable cultural problems that make our government more contentious and less functional. but when republicans can win the Senate, house of representatives, and presidency consistently without earning a majority of votes for any of the three, you get right wing minority rule. That can only happen because our democratic system is outdated and flawed Not being angry at politics is a luxury afforded to you by virtue of the fact that your government mostly works. And again, social media, American attitudes and other factors contribute to the anger and polarization here, but I don't think you appreciate that it's reasonable to be angry at a government that doesn't reflect the will of the people, and transfer the anger to the people who helped make it that way. And although Reagan didn't invent our system of representative apportionment or the electoral college, he and his ideology, such as it were, have been a disaster for this country.

Liking someone because they're a smooth talking actor -- and getting mad at others who see through that -- is the lowest level of political analysis. Especially when you have drastically less skin in the game due to being a citizen of a different first world country. And as someone more familiar with dutch politics than the average American, i think calling yourselves one of the most left wing countries in the world is quite a stretch, given that your governing coalition is largely neoliberal-centrist and your largest opposition faction are hard right with a nice dose of fascism. You're not more meaningfully left wing than France or Germany. I am quite jealous of the fact that your government seems to work. The US's government doesn't work, in fact one party runs on a platform of ensuring it stays that way. That party controls ~45% of the votes, earning them more than 50% of the legislature due to our failing mode of government. personal animosity towards politicians is a result of that, among many other factors that you don't fully appreciate as someone whose society has hundreds of years of cooperative government, so much so that they named your unique civic orientation the "polder model"

well, first off just try to have fun and don't worry about min-maxing. If you're not at 50, just level. feel free to skip side quests, you can always come back later. but you do have to complete the storyline so you might find yourself at level 50 and with parts of the campaign left if you've done too many other things. if you're at level 50, there are a couple general areas to focus on: 1. character progression: honing to increase gear score to access further story/continents/tier2&3 - within step 1, you should be doing your catch up islands. there's a good maxroll guide to get you started. TLDR: lots of islands give tier 1 honing mats. doing those will give you a nice boost. - aside from islands, do your una's tasks and chaos dungeons daily and abyssal dungeons weekly. Do the event guardian every day and spend the tokens to get more materials. To be optimal, you can do 2 normal guardian raids every day as well, but personally i don't do that every day because it's boring and takes a long time. - PVP if you find it fun for additional mats. - do the tower, plus any boss rush and/or cube tickets you get whenever you have spare time and want to do something else. 2. account progression: Skill points, runes, rapports, other horizontal progression - skill points and runes are probably the most impactful account wide progression systems. To get all your skill points and runes you have to engage with the collectible system which means adventure tome, island tokens, giant hearts, masterpieces, etc. there are guides that help you figure out where to get started. More skill points makes your gameplay more fun! - do your rapports every day. you can do it on your main (use bifrost points for this) or your alts. i would suggest prioritizing rapports that give virtue potions, giant hearts, and those in locations with easy adventure tomes (rethramis, yudia, west luterra, anikka, tortoyk) - other collection stuff such as makoko seeds, omnium stars, ignea tokens give nice

Impressive how you managed to twist an innocuous comment into an internet argument based on nothing but a desire to Be Mad On The Internet. That guy wasn't even disagreeing with you, he was just saying that it sucks how you have to change jobs to earn what you're worth in our society. Which it does. That's not a controversial statement. Changing jobs is stressful, and it would be nice if we didn't have to do that in order to get raises. That's what you're picking a fight with. Touch grass.

> You want money that appreciates, not depreciates. This is really simple. you don't want money to be an investment, you dingus. Money is used for exchanging goods and services, not as a store of value. If it were a store of value, velocity would decrease (nevermind that bitcoin's velocity _can't_ increase, that's a totally different fundamental problem) as people hold more money waiting for returns, which reduces the rate of economic growth. You want people to invest money in ventures that generate economic activity. Stuffing your piggy bank -- or hard drive with your wallet in this case -- under the mattress produces no economic value for society. Placing your money in $VOO to beat inflation produces value because it provides money to companies that use it to build products, provide services, and employ people. Placing your money into bitcoin upon the promise that it will be worth more later does the opposite, it takes value out of the real economy and locks it into a system that produces no net growth except when more people do the same. It disincentivizes real economic activity in favor of speculation with no inherent productivity aside from wasted energy. so net negative productivity. bitcoin is up 3000% over the past 5 years because it is a speculative investment vehicle whose value derives from greater fools piling into a nonsense scheme they don't understand. It has nothing to do with Bitcoin being a currency, because it's not a currency. If you want money to appreciate in value, you hate the poor. Poor people hold the most debt, and debt is prison in a deflationary system, because on top of usurious interest rates that lenders would charge to justify their loan, your debt would still be growing over time due to deflationary pressures increasing the nominal value of the money you owe. compound growth of debt replaces compound growth of investment, further impoverishing anyone who owes debt.

You don't understand anything about what makes money useful... Scarcity? That's flat out the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life. With scarce currency, people are incentivized to hold it because its value can increase significantly, which discourages investment, as the early adopters of Bitcoin hoard their digital gold waiting for it to appreciate, instead of investing it into projects that offer a material return and thus generate value. Bitcoin, on the other hand, destroys value because it serves no actual purpose and consumes insane amounts of energy just existing. And don't even get me started on the frankly stunning thesis that removing monetary controls from a currency improves that currency. it's incredibly ahistorical libertarian hopium, not a single economist aside from a few Austrian School kooks would agree with you. You have severe cryptobrain, log off and learn some real economics before you embarrass yourself further.

The wealthy didn't like that, so they began a decades-long push to change the politics of america's clergy. then, in the 80s, the tail began to wag the dog, with the rise of the moral majority, leading to today.

I'm aware of what eco said and I agree with most of your response. What I don't agree with is the assertion that because everyone will say that they're pro democracy, we can't meaningfully identify the liars. Mitt Romney is an anticommunist who's not pro-lgbt, although he supports Israel. He says he's pro-democracy, and based on his actions I believe him, even if I disagree with most everything he says. By contrast, Josh Hawley, Cruz and his ilk will say the same, but they are demonstrably not. I find them to be fascistic in style despite the fact that neither are anti-Semitic to my knowledge. But regardless, Naziism and fascism aren't exactly the same either.

It's literally not, because being an antisemitic, anticommunist homophobe says nothing about your disposition towards democracy, which is at least as important as bigotry, if not more, in determining whether someone is a nazi.

While on one hand it's true in the sense that there's more available entertainment that requires neither, becoming a well rounded person, a good citizen, developing critical thinking skills, and deeply understanding almost any topic at all requires these skills as well as the patience and grit that develop as a result.

There are, however, people in grievous medical debt who will grasp for any chance at remuneration. And if the cops are beset by frivolous lawsuits, that becomes their problem to solve with community outreach, good behavior, and CYA documentation solutions such as partners, bodycams, external auditors/reviews, and non-discriminatory detention practices according to high standards of behavior. You know, those things they currently could do butwillfully disregard because it suits them to be authoritarian pricks who do whatever they want. Personally it feels like you actually made an argument in my favor, sounds like my solution would implement a virtuous cycle that would incentivize good behavior. Blaming ACAB people for a lack of appropriate consequences sounds a lot like victim blaming to me. "Well if you were nicer to them, they'd behave well!" Institutionally, they need to behave well first in order to earn our respect. They have the power, they need to show they can use it appropriately.

there are small bits of evidence that inuit were in the same areas as the norsemen around when the norsemen died/disappeared. inuit-carved walrus tusk were found in the remains of norse settlements IIRC. Moreover, given that they were both hunting walruses in the same place at the same time for hundreds of years, it's unlikely that they never interacted although it is pretty clear that minimal if any trade or cultural exchange occurred.

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/TrueReddit on March 18, 2022 16:19:02

ok, I don't think that NAMBLA (or current pedos such as gaetz) was/are nearly as influential as would be convenient for your argument, but that's ultimately irrelevant. Do you believe that the existence of pro-pedophile groups means that non-pedophiles must uncritically support politicians using loaded language such as "protect the children" to pass bills that have nothing to do with protecting children? because that's effectively what you're arguing for.

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/TrueReddit on March 18, 2022 16:15:07

Child porn supporting libertarians are a marginalized fringe ideology. That's not strong evidence in support of your position, I don't know why I have to even say this. Also, I made no such generalization, I responded to you specifically about the law criminalizing child porn. To be clear, I think that politicians who promote legislation in a way that implicitly impugns the morality of anyone who attempts to disagree should be subject to additional scrutiny, yes. given the nature of political economy in the us, legislators are heavily incentivized to add unrelated addendums to bills, often at the behest of special interests, which are then easier to pass if nobody can disagree lest they be smeared as "pro-child-porn".

Commented by /u/DAM1313 in /r/TrueReddit on March 18, 2022 15:06:11

Let's Put aside the weird framing where you try to imply that there's a substantial portion of the population in favor of child porn. I don't think you have meaningful evidence for that assertion. More importantly, you don't actually know that people were using the same argument in opposition, OR that the people trying to ban child porn were using the same rhetorical tactic. Do you understand how "we need to ban child porn to protect the children" is different from "passing my omnibus technology bill is necessary to protect the children"

I'm not an expert at the Linux kernel but from my understanding, most cheats AND modern anti-cheats are essentially kernel level applications. Because of kernel security guidelines, programs don't have visibility into other kernel-related processes, so developing an anti-cheat that inspects unrelated syscalls isn't supported by the architecture or (perhaps more importantly) philosophy of linux

I said I like many of these books. But there's not much fantasy in the western canon, and having read a decent number of classics as well as a lot of fantasy, i'm inclined to agree with the consensus here. The best fantasy books are not as good as the best non-genre-fiction books, unless all you're looking for is fun entertainment, in which case what do you care for debates on quality? just like what you like and don't worry about clinging to pretenses of sophistication. Nobody seriously argues that the marvel universe is the height of cinema. But Avengers: Endgame is over 3 hours long. Serious Film Alert! > Oathbringer has a character fall into a suicidal depression after he accidentally murders his wife by burning her alive but it's not serious because its fantasy? ok, cool. And _deadhouse gates_ is an objectively brutal novel that follows an army on a death march and features all kinds of murder, betrayal, sacrifice, and pathos. I still wouldn't call it a Serious Novel.

A book isn't a serious book just because it's long, thats child brain shit. I felt very grown up when I read a 1200 page Tom Clancy book in middle school, that didn't make it serious literature, it's schlock. I like many of these books, but saying they're Serious Reading because they're long is just silly. These are genre fiction books of varying quality, ranging from 'good for a fantasy novel' to 'pulpy YA'. That's it. Also, if you think an archetypal Serious Book Enjoyer likes _self help_ of all genres, you're very wrong. Self help books are almost exclusively worse than this stack. True bottom of the barrel garbage

It literally is military propaganda but ok. It builds an emotional attachment. The more people who soyface at the whiff of cool military technology, the more people who will defend the military. Flyovers at NFL games are propaganda too. Having veterans sing the national anthem is propaganda. Singing the national anthem before sporting events is also propaganda

Hyperfocus on social liberalism is a mental disorder. Twitter isn't leftist for being against racism, and any stance a company takes is profit driven. It's profitable to make social justice noises, so companies do it. Their executives don't believe that shit, zuck in particular is a right wing authoritarian. They just do that because their employees and also a majority of Americans with disposable income agree. But yes, very leftist of them lol

i wouldn't exactly call boeing and airbus an example of healthy competition. each company is propped up by multiple national governments and therefore aren't allowed to fail. Boeing basically got away with the 737 MAX scandal scot-free. I'm sure there will be financial penalties somewhere down the line but the USA will not allow boeing to go out of business. That's not competition, that's a duopoly of public-private partnerships.

But there are a LOT of games including tons of older AAA games which tank on iGPU but run well on less powerful dGPUs. the best iGPU on the market is worse than a gtx 1030. there's a lot of room for "bad" GPUs in this market, and a lot of games to play using them.

> I challenge you: name even one anti-science belief I have. . > We are regularly told that these people are Very Smart, if they are utterly helpless at this, then perhaps they aren't as smart as we've been led to believe. Here. Here it is. You are saying that if scientists can't solve a complex problem outside of their area of expertise, the results of their investigations in an area which they are expert in should also be questioned. You are also asserting that they are "utterly helpless" at this. Imposing unreasonable standards before conferring legitimacy is literally an oppositional belief. If the thing you are imposing this framework upon is "science," you have an anti-science belief. This is fundamentally anti-intellectual and expecting smart people to have all of the answers to many disparate problems is literally anti-scientific by nature because it dismisses the body of knowledge and rigorous inquiry by specialists that is required in order to produce scientific advancement. The most powerful conclusion you could reasonably draw from this assertion is that scholars of science communication have failed to triumph in the media landscape. But even that would be incomplete, because you are omitting the opposing contingent of vested interests (governments, businesses, lobbying firms, non-profits) with their associated cadre of Very Smart People who have vested interests in preventing the conclusions of the scientific establishment from reducing their power and/or profits. So to distill this to its essence, you are basically questioning the legitimacy of science because one sub-field of communications studies has failed to deliver information to a group of loosely affiliated independent journalists which will result in good science communication, or to triumph over a huge variety of opposing forces, some of which specialize in propaganda (and which employ many Very Smart People with far more money).

> I don't see why charity is necessary, why not "just" accept reality as it is? That's what we're doing. accepting reality requires accepting the axiom that humans can be dishonest to others and themselves, and are prone to presenting controversial or inflammatory opinions in a way that shields them from personal criticism. Weasel words such as "a bit of a stance" sound a lot like a way to present a claim with plausible deniability, especially given the context of the rest of your replies so far. So charity would be required because you are asking us to accept your internal version of your beliefs, which you have not communicated well, in place of the anti-science beliefs you have actually shared in practice. because if we're not inside your head, the difference is stridently argued pedantry, so a reasonable assumption for other people to make is that you're trying to shield an anti-science argument from criticism. And your argument for this is: > Because one objectivly exists would be one reason. Ok, sure. 2+2=4. But why would we expect you to be able to be objective about your beliefs or motivations, something that human beings are notoriously terrible at? All we have to judge you on are your words, which to this point have been pedantic and prevaricating. Assuming the best of yourself and the worst of others is a form of bias that needs to be interrupted in order to communicate clearly. You are having difficulty with this because you seem unable to consider the conversation from the perspective of an outside observer, which I did prior to sharing my opinion in the previous comment. As an outside observer, my perception was that you drew a distinction without a meaningful difference in order to communicate a fundamentally anti-intellectual position which withholds credibility from an institution based on unreasonable standards and the actions of external actors. > I could try to mimic you guys but it seems utterly beyond me. not in the way you meant, but yes clearly this is difficult for you.

> Perception: >>you stated you are anti-science > Reality: >>I've adopted a bit of an "anti-science" stance for people who aren't excessively charitable and allow for the possibility that you're here in bad faith, which to me seems to be the case thus far, we will not be inclined to make a distinction here. And why should we? would you extend an unreasonable amount of charity to someone who said "I'm not a moon-landing denier, i've just adopted a bit of an anti-moon-landing stance." and then proceeds to pedantically argue for impossible standards that would make them trust NASA again, involving novel solutions to unsolved problems which the people at NASA are not trained to solve? you're acting a bit dim right now. shape up

well yeah, but that's moving the goalposts. The point i was making is that it's reasonable for western leftists to attempt to reach christians in their own terms. And bad christian theological arguments have reached these people before, slavery apologetics and the prosperity gospel are two examples that immediately come to mind. is it a coincidence that those arguments also happen to promote the uglier, more self-serving interpretations of christianity? no. It's much easier to misinterpret scripture in order to steer people towards their own imagined self interest than otherwise.

they are providing value to the sellers and the performers by deflecting anger in response to price increases. The sellers and performers benefit as a result, and so we can expect any NFT-based solution to replicate the existing problems. Making the transaction trustless is nice in theory, but due to TPS restrictions, and the fact that web browsers/end user clients can't meaningfully participate in the blockchain, large-scale NFT based operations are filtered through a centralized 3rd party which provides a REST API ie. OpenSea. You're delusional if you don't think that the same thing will happen with any NFT-based ticket market. The blockchain is decentralized in name only. Exchanges, NFTs, and wallets are all centralized. Cryptobros literally reinventing the web2 wheel and calling it web3. except with a LOT of extra energy overhead.

At the same time, certain books are written to promote a viewpoint, and that can be done through the author's framing, narrative, prose etc. You wouldn't say it's "woke cancel culture" if someone observed that The Turner Diaries is advocating white nationalism. to be less hyperbolic and more direct, authorial intent can be inferred and critiqued on the basis of their words. So it's reasonable and expected to critique that. It should just be done in a rational and analytical manner. Analyze the work on its own merits and then determine what, if anything it says about the author's views. Observing that Dostoevsky is critical of nihilism and utopian socialism is valid literary analysis. so is observing that the author of the turner diaries is a racist hack.

> It can be a character flaw spurred by past trauma for example Sure, but a reasonable question to ask in response might be "why that character flaw, specifically?" Good authors are generally, though not always economical with their words, and they are almost always intentional as well. So when a stylistic or artistic choice is made, we are motivated to ask about the reasoning for it. There could be many valid reasons, of course, such as historical accuracy, narrative relevance, allegory, etc. and analysis of what that might be should be left to the reader. But it's worthwhile to ask oneself whether the choices made improve the story, and there's certainly ways to write about these topics which reflect negatively on the writer.
