The economy of Kent County is much larger than Ottawa County. Like when someone says the US is much wealthier than Denmark, it's not a "gotcha moment" to point out that Denmark has a higher median household income. That may be true, but the US is still significantly more wealthy than Denmark.

I've met many radical gun rights enthusiasts that unironically believe you should be able to shoot anyone who you feel has threatened you. So if the shooter can convince even one juror that they lit up that guy because he had threatened him, there is your hung jury. I'm not sure why that's such a wild concept to consider, especially knowing that we don't know exactly what was said between the two parties right before the shooting occured.

Once your eyes are open to what's going on, the next thing is to decide what to do with that information. Spending your time dooming on reddit is perhaps one of the worst ways to answer that question. My advice- try to live a good life and enjoy things while you still can. Be the guys playing music and drinking and smoking as the titanic went down, not the pearl-clutfhing hysterical person screaming in vain.

Exactly. People are way over thinking this and trying to apply some logic or coherence.

Why should "white" even be considered a "race"? I mean, I don't consider myself "white," because my ancestors weren't considered white and I already have an ethnicity. But a lot of people would call me white just based on my skin color. I know the lady in OPs video isn't making this nuanced an argument, but the entire concept of "whiteness" is itself a racist concept that was literally just invented a couple hundred years ago as a way to discriminate. A lot of people who are called white wouldn't even count as white just a hundred years ago. Idk I'm just kinda rambling now but maybe we should all of us just ditch the entire concept of calling any vaguely light skinned people "white "

My favorite fun fact about MKULTRA is that if you actually read the declassified documents, you'd see that the entire program was an absolute fucking joke with zero scientific merit. They never accomplished anything useful and all their "experiments" were laughably bad science. They were literally doing things like... Just watching guys have sex with prostitutes after they dosed them with LSD. Like, that's not even science. No useful data could be collected from that. There were no controls, no consistency in dosing, no data collection beyond just some guy literally watching the John's through a secret peephole.

Even for logged in users, r/all is the same EXCEPT for any subs that a user has specifically blocked. Most people.block zero subs because it's a redundant feature.

All the issues you mentioned with PC are pretty much exclusive to the experience of being a hobbyist that is interested in doing your own builds and/or optimizing your system to its fullest.

Also I should say this- I'm sorry that you took my words to mean the most literal interpretation possible. I did not mean to claim that Cincinnati chili is literally not available for purchase in any location outside Cincinnati. I meant it's not widely available or common. As evidenced by the fact that I've eaten at hundreds of restaurants without ever seeing it on a menu. It would only be experience bias if I was claiming that literally no cinc chilli is available outside Ohio BASED UPON my personal experience. What YOU are experiencing is called the "fallacy fallacy," where because you perceived a fallacy in my "argument," you assume that my premise is wrong. The issue being that you misunderstood me because I spoke casually and wasn't being directly literal with my words.

No one except authoritarians thinks that "publicly owned" applies to authoritarian governments. When people say "publicly owned" and it's owned by the government, that is generally in a functioning democracy. I'm really not sure why that's such a tough concept for some people to understand, it's rather straight forward. The government owning things only counts as "the public" owning something when the government is actually comprised of the people through democratic means. The National Parks are public land because the people control the US government (in theory). To argue the same thing for assets controlled by the CCP is utterly ridiculous.

The game market is having two things happen- It's being balkanized. Instead of a couple huge games that everyone plays, now there are 30 different games from 8 genres that are less popular by percentage. Also- the monetization models have changed. Micro transactions, season passes, cosmetics. This is how games make money now. And if a company has a successful game that continuously generates revenue, it's cheaper and more profitable to just maintain and update a game than try to launch a while new one. The reason GTA6 doesn't exist yet is actually rather simple- because GTAV was still making them a ton of money with very little overhead (comparatively).

Statistically speaking it's not that dangerous, in general. That's because most violent crime is bunched up together in specific geographic areas. The majority of police will likely never have to discharge their weapon at a suspect, let alone get shot at. But yeah, if you're a cop in a crime infested area and have to deal with heavily armed gangs and cartels and shit, it's pretty scary.

The thing about crime statistics is that they are very easy to look up. Across the Us, there has been a slight uptick in crime in the last two years, but besides that we have seen a steady decrease in crime rates across the nation going back about 30 years.

Who says we weren't making full use of it? Do you have any idea the intellect required to be basically a level 100 Ranger in real life? Which is what every primitive HG was if they made it to adulthood. We're talking about "primitive savages" that could identify hundreds of plant and animal species, knew detailed information about all their migration and reproductive habits, could read the night sky like a calendar and a map at the same time, could make beautiful tools out of rocks and sticks lying around, could make plant medicine, clothes, weapons, and hunt and fish and throw a spear with enough force to one shot a deer. These were *incredible* individuals. So I'm not sure why you think they weren't using their full mental capacity.

I just think you are taking the things people say about psychedelics WAY too literally and it's very obvious you've never experienced them yourself. Open new doors to the cosmos? Couldn't you say that telescopes do that, or advanced understanding of astro physics, or philosophy? Because generally people don't mean that stuff literally. And the ones that do are the people who are usually clinically insane and experiencing some kind of psychosis. For the average user, those types of phrases and language are metaphors to try to explain an ineffable experience. You should try reading the book "How to change your mind" by Michael Pollan. He is a well renowned science writer who made this book from a purely rational skeptic, empirical scientific perspective, I think you may really enjoy it and you'd probably learn a thing or two

Wait, why is it not a thing that is happening? Isn't taking a drug a real experience? You also seem to not understand psychedelics, no offense intended. Like for instance, are you aware that full blown visual hallucinations are not a common experience? I agree that people who take mushrooms for the first time and then think they've become an enlightened shaman are pretty annoying, but I also think you should be careful not to scoff at something that is a profound and positive experience for many people.

Everyone thinks they have a great memory. But they don't. To have incredibly high recall accuracy of memories is very rare. Maybe you are one of those people that has a near photographic memory, idk, but if you do, it means you are the exception. Most people's memories, and by most I mean like 99% of people, is quite unreliable. And what makes it especially unreliable is how random it tends to be. You might perfectly remember a question from math test you took 20 years ago, but not be able to remember the color of jacket a guy was wearing that you met yesterday for coffee.

Your theory, while interesting, has been proven false many times by virtue of how incredibly unreliable human memory actually is.

Occam's razor only works well when you have further data that adds context. Without the proper context you wouldn't even understand what the "simplest" explanation would be. Here's a classic example- Imagine you're in Montana camping and you hear hoof beats running in the distance. Occam's razor says it's probably horses. Sure, it COULD be zebras or donkeys but it probably isn't. And it's definitely not unicorns. The only way to correctly apply Occam's razor in that situation is to understand that zebras don't live in Montana but horses are common there, and to also know that there is no physical evidence for the existence of unicorns.

> If we are to truly apply Ockham’s razor to life on Earth, then surely the nonscientific theory of creationism is far simpler than Darwinian evolution. How is that an accurate statement? Creationism just creates more questions and makes things more complex. How did a creator do it? By what mechanism? What created the creator? Why didn't the creator put life on Mars? Why did the creator create life in such a way that all physical evidence would point towards abiotic Genesis? If you had zero prior knowledge, zero evidence, and zero experience studying the origin of life's Occam's razor would say creationism. That's why creationism was assumed to be true until **further evidence and knowledge was discovered**, and now with that new context, Occam's Razor now would indicate that creationism is not accurate.

So I'll reply to this larent comment since the person I was talking to decided to just insult me and then block me like a coward. The idea that HGs were "just primitive cave men" and then one day someone decided to grow wheat and then was like "oh shit we should invent villages" is a simplistic and childish understanding that you'd see taught to 7th graders. I went to university for history and anthropology and that is not what we were taught. My textbooks talked about how the transition from nomadic HG to agrarian society was a gradual shift over likely thousands of years, with ebs and flows and not in a linear fashion, and that the first evidence of human settlements were not farms or villages by religious gathering spaces and monuments. So I guess if you were never taught any of that stuff, Gobleki Tepe would seem like some paradigm shattering piece of evidence.

I'm still not quite understanding what your point actually is? No one was out there pounding their fists saying "it is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE that pre-ag HGs could make any stone monoliths!"

I think we are having a miscommunication over semantics and definitions and stuff. First off, the brain can stay alive for hours after the heart stops, according to a study done by Sam Parma who you mentioned above. Second, I'm using the term "dream" pretty flippantly, but what I mean is, these things people experience when they think they "died for a few minutes" are things being experienced by a brain that is still objectively alive. So whether you call it a NDE or a vision or a dream or a spiritual experience or whatever, it's not happening to a dead mind. It's a thing that a living brain does. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20181125/Human-brain-may-stay-active-for-hours-after-death.aspx

The only evidence of mortar is a single guy who just said it in the series, no other evidence of mortar. It's a very dubious claim because there is no way mortar would survive that long. The claim of complex chambers is also quite hard to swallow, with the only evidence being some low res grainy ultra sounds that appear to show voids. The graphics shown in the Netflix show are fabricated for the show and not at all based on actual survey data. And carrying the stones isn't that interesting.

He lost the benefit of the doubt by making a career out of books that make false and misleading claims and ignore any evidence that runs contrary to his ideas. The gunung site is a good example. It is not really a pyramid, but terraced steps built into a hill top (specifically an extinct volcano). It is absolutely a very interesting find, and may be very very old and may shed new light on the history of human habitation in Indonesia. But is it evidence of a super secret advanced global civilization that existed 10,000 years prior to any known evidence of civilization existing? No, it's not. It's just an ancient stone megalith. A thing that early humans did, in lots of places, that is actually not that mysterious. They even admit in the show that the construction technique was literally just stacking naturally formed volcanic blocks. No advanced tech of any kind is needed for that.

Well despite you being a condescending asshole about it, I'll still clarify why you are confused here. The only way that a gas pedal can "stick" or get caught on the mat is if you push the gas pedal all the way down to the floor. The point being, it's still driver error. No Toyota ever just "took off" by itself, it was always a case of drivers just jamming the gas pedal all the way down in a panic because they thought they were hitting the brake pedal. Hopefully that clears up your confusion on the topic.

That's not a mechanical failure, just a weird design quirk with the floor mats. But more importantly is the fact that even if the accelerator pedal was stuck in the floor mat, ALL THE DRIVER HAD TO DO WAS PUSH THE BRAKE PEDAL DOWN. But they didn't. Because they were pushing the wrong pedal in the first place, which is why they depressed the accelerator completely flat to the point that it caught the edge of the floor mat.

No one here will argue that we can't support 8 billion people. What you are suggesting is a total and complete destruction of the biosphere, which is not supported by data. But whatever man, idk what to say since you are just here quoting sources saying "we can't feed 8 billion people in 100 years" which is extraordinarily obvious to everyone and doesn't support your hypothesis....

You are deeply misinformed if you think global warming will be like a nuclear winter. The Earth's biome will survive just fine with another mass extinction event. I'm not saying things won't be grim, but it's just not accurate to imagine a scenario where climate changes means there is literally no way for humans to feed themselves.

There are already micro organisms that eat plastic. And humans are very adaptable, clever, hardy creatures. And there are a lot of us. Even if 99.9% of humans die, that means there will still be MILLIONS of humans. We almost certainly will not go extinct due to climate change or economic collapse. Global nuclear war might do it tho.

Idk maybe, the CIA was doing a lot of "throw shit at the wall and see what sticks" and had unlimited money back then, so they got into all sorts of stuff. But they weren't nearly as competent as people assume. Almost everything they did was a failure, almost every "project" yielded nothing.

It's kind of hard to explain, but Pollock is a good example of how someone can be an artistic genius who legitimately upends the world of art and changes how people imagine a painting can be, but it doesn't translate well on a painting by painting basis. But because he is so famous and accomplished, any work at all by him is valuable regardless of if that specific piece is really that good. Put another way, a doodle on a napkin would be worth enormous amounts of money if it was a done by Picasso. Doesn't matter that it's just a dumb doodle on a napkin.

It's sad that your worldview is so twisted and misanthropic that you think encouraging humans to just lay down and go extinct is a "kindness." If no one existed, there would be no suffering. But neither would there be hope or love or art or beauty or friendship or dreams or joy or satisfaction. And the fact that you can't see that is, at the very least, quite tragic.

Because we are part of something bigger than just the individual. I am a human. If humans decided to stop reproducing, there would be no more humans. To say we shouldn't reproduce is to say that humans shouldn't exist. So now you are deciding for all future generations that they don't get to exist because you think it's not worth living when times get tough. That seems monstrously selfish and myopic to me.

Divorcing the act of reproduction from the state of "being alive" is very intellectual dishonest. And the argument that new life cannot be created ethically is, frankly, absurd. It's trying to apply the logic of human behavior to something that is a natural process, which is silly. Creating new life is note more inherently unethical than a hurricane or a supernova.

Different physiological conditions can affect how your body uptakes nutrients and calories, and how it uses them. But it's still calories in versus calories out.

Pretty much everyone on the planet knows that high fashion stuff you see on the runway is not meant to go to market. That's why I clearly stated that it's about clout and making contracts with companies. Those contracts are not "selling the ridiculous bullshit I put on the runway," but all the other types of deals. Like they see someone who made something they find interesting so they then want that designer to work on something, for instance.

When someone creates a product with their primary goal being profit, it's hard for me to accept that as art because I see art as something meaningful that comes from a place of creativity and emotion and spirit, when a person pours their self into creation with the idea being that they can share something meaningful with the world. Typically speaking, fashion week is about clout and securing contracts for fashion companies. And I mentioned MCU because those movies are literally just engineered products intended to make the most money possible, which is why they are largely soulless predictable shallow movies.

The measure of how good a king is should be simole- is the kingdom more or less stable, safe, prosperous when they die versus when they took the crown. By that measure, he was an absolute shit king.

Another uncomfortable truth- it's not the drugs fault. Millions of people use alcohol and weed without developing addiction.

Tax them, and use that tax money to fund health services for addiction. The solution is tragically simple.

There is something like "media intelligence ", a person's ability to interpret information from media.

People with high media intelligence understand that news media is a complex ecosystem of biased people with varying degrees of competency, and are able to get a very accurate understanding of situations and current events through consuming a diverse array of media and knowing how to parse that media in a wise manner.

The timing just seems too coincidental, the WEF is very much pro-NATO and bedded in NATO countries and holds a lot of political power in Europe... And they just suddenly became the big bad evil guys right as Russia ramped up their anti-NATO propaganda and policy.

How many good ol boys will take see the writing on the wall and go kill 20+ deer to preserve somehow so they have meat for the next year for their whole family. Now imagine that thousands of people have that same idea adn think about how long the deer populations (in those areas) will last.

I'm guessing that contextually that word is closer to the English word "teat", not "tit". Teats is the word a farmer would use to describe, perhaps, the udders of a cow or goat and it would be insulting and offensive to use it to describe a woman's boobs. "Tits" on the other hand is used to describe human boobs but has a lude, sexual connotation. It's used in porn and dirty talking for instance.

That life expectancy number is based off total deaths versus births, and so the average number was dragged down by a high child and infant mortality. If you made it to puberty/young adulthood however, neolithic humans had an average life span of about 54. Again this was an average, so for every human that died in a hunting accident or from an infection at 20, there was someone who lived to be 70.

Police brutality covers a far wider range of actions than just shootings. Beatings, arbitrary arrest, abuse of authority, unnecessary use of force, etc. Also, our per Capita rate of police shootings is still way higher than other developed western countries.

We'll just have to wait and find out what a jury says but I do know a few things about the case. First off, the cop fired his taser twice which means it was "out of ammo" but could still do a shock if jammed into someone. This is an important detail, because it means the taser was no longer capable of incapacitating someone. So Patrick Lyoya did actually get the taser and then he and the police officer wrestled around a bit while the cop yelled at him to drop it. After a brief scuffle, the cop ended up on top of Patrick, who was face down on the ground. Then the cop fired a single round into the back of his head. So, that's what led to him being charged with murder, as it *appears* that he killed him execution style after getting him pinned on the ground.

LOL! The Catholic Church are literally the original Christian institution, Protestants are just breakaway sects. And lots and lots of Protestants consider Catholics to be Christian anyway so you're extra wrong. And finally, at the end of the day, if someone says they are Christian, than they are, because the Bible contains countless contradictory statements so you can make it say pretty much whatever you want by picking and choosing what passages to follow. That's why some Christians are hateful authoritarians and some are loving hippy types.

Uh... Switzerland having lax gun laws but low crime doesn't really say anything about the efficacy of gun laws to lower gun deaths. There is more than one way to lower crime/gun deaths. An example is, having a small and homogeneous population that enjoys a very high standard of living and low rates of poverty (all of which is literally impossible in the United States).

I think that you are extremely confused and maybe need to work on your reading comprehension. Some person commented that US schools are "the laughing stock of the world." That is, to be honest, VERY OBVIOUSLY not true, and I made a glib comment in mockery of that statement. If you think that means I am trying to debate that US schools don't have any issues or problems, that means either 1) you basically can't read, or 2) you are engaging in a blatant "strawman argument" Either way, you seem foolish.

George Hw Bush was a monster. He helped the Nixon administration. He was director of the CIA during a time when the CIA was openly supporting brutal far right dictatorships and killing leftists all over the place. He was Reagan's VP and never criticized Reagan and supported his presidency through all the fucked things Reagan did, like the war on drugs (a dismal failure that has water billions and destroyed thousands of lives and accomplished absolutely nothing good), and had a role in Iran Contra and helped cover it up. If you know American history of the second half of the 20th century, Bush had his fingers in almost all the horrible things the US did during those times.

A non-joke answer; Imagine you've spent literal years having "debates" with people where your side if the argument is trying to convince other people that the existence of people you know and love personally is valid. You spend countless hours going point by point over why this group of people deserve to exist and have fair treatment and representation. Most of those arguments are literally about whether that group of people should even be allowed to live in our society. Then you find yourself talking to someone who is nitpicking details and going "well sure, that's BUT WHAT ABOUT...." And imagine how insanely irritating that would be. So, that's a window into what some of these folks are going through when you see them say "oh just fuck off" to someone on some video you watched.

There is significant, perhaps even overwhelming evidence that consciousness resides in the physical structures of your brain and nervous system.

I think your thoughts on this demonstrate a deep ignorance of why Trump was voted for. Perhaps a small minority of centrist leaning Republicans thought as you described, but most voted for him because of his rhetoric regarding Mexicans and hatred towards Hillary Clinton. And also some number were legitimately impressed with his speaking abilities and ideas, because they are low information idiots and racists

It's a problem everywhere. The problem with have a two party system split between "conservatives" and "liberals" is that the party that wants new things has new ideas, and it means they are always changing and shifting their ideology around, while the other party remains focused. Like, the GOP has generally the same platform for 40 years now. It's not identical, but more or the less the major talking points and the culture war stuff have been the same for them since Reagan. Now look at the Democrats, and how much they have changed since that time. So they are more fractured and diverse and have trouble reaching a focused consensus on many things.

You can repeat whatever you want, you are still objectively incorrect. The chief of police confirmed that the taser had only two shots and that both were deployed. And just drive mode does NOT "pose a significant threat" to an adult man in good health.

I say it because it is 100% accurate and easy to prove. Your video is NOT of just drive mode. One probe is attached to that man. Drive mode is when no probes are attached, and it does not incapacitate.

Yes, but you will still get the ticket when the cops look up your plate. In fact that is already the standard protocol for most police departments- if a motorist runs away, it's safer for everyone (cops, the public, the suspect) to just let people run away and then issue a warrant for them. Even in grand rapids that is what they do. Recently they did that with some bikers who driving super bikes around at like 100 mph. It was too dangerous to chase them so they just got them on video and then arrested them later at their houses.
