Even Socrates couldn't sort out what justice really is.

I'm saying, what's the deal? Why is my standing in the world as you see it more important, or more interesting to you than understanding why the world is as it is?

You are not interesting. You all come to waste time being cool, so do what your good at but don't confuse cool for real.

Everything is real. It's just not all actual. So you're against oil companies. If your best solution is to call me a fake, ignorant, self destructive, profiteering, selfish bore, then I don't think you'll make much progress in solving the problem. Good luck though.

I bought sun edison too back in the day. Glad I sold it. Solar panels are bankrupt.

Cool people are the problem. The Earth needs real, actual people who can pull the weight for two, not six who can't pull the weight for one.

Isn't there something about feeding fishy soup in some part of the Bible? Better to teach the hungry to fish than feed them fishy soup?

When I was in college, I helped a friend clean up a chain of restaurants he owned. 17 or them total. I staffed them with shitty people who had no marketable skills. Years later, a great number of them remain gainfully employed as a result of the training and experience that they were offered. I helped a couple that I know, just a few years ago, make a series of arrangements which afforded them the ability to visit a fertility clinic and so now they have a daughter. I've set up custodial accounts for a multitude of friends and acquaintances so that they can understand how compounding can work to ensure better financial futures for their children. I've given investment advice to countless people who were scared of the market and didn't understand that its where true freedom is to be found. I made a series of arrangements that allowed 2 friends of mine to be able to afford medical care where one has cancer and the other ms. I taught a 66 year old woman to drive at some point in the last 2 years. I helped almost a dozen friends who were in varying states of addiction and general shitty living and have seen them move to better places, find ways to be satisfied and live normal lives and overcome those problems by being a better friend that most people have and by utilizing my ability to network to increase utility for all involved. Right now there's over 100k in food being sold at those restaurants about every week, and they're mostly managed by kids who I hired when they were 15 and 16 years old. These kids get bonuses, have houses and apartments, savings, etc.

I'm 37, I've been around more than you can probably imagine. If you just want me to list ways in which I've helped people to help themselves, I could go on for days. But then you'd just say I was bragging, or taking credit where it's not due. If you could get over your prejudices about me, then you might feel silly making assumptions that I am shallow or selfish or whatever else it is that you're saying.

Curious about your answer Pilgrim ( :D ) since I feel there is a strong one that I will enjoy reading?


I don't have an answer ... though ... seems to me the list of social ills that cannot be traced back to the Industrial Revolution would be much much shorter. :-)

What were the ills before that? 35 year average life span? That must have sucked.

One person to one account or no one gets the credit for any of it. It sounded wonderful, but your credibility is in the red with me so it is not actually provable, nope. Just an arrangement of words chosen by who knows? If people were benefited, I'm happy for them though.

Life span 35 in Neandrathal times perhaps, not on average in the 1800's.

Okay, where was I in school when they taught about the 1st Industrial Revolution (Early 1700s)? #-o Never heard a word about it. In America, where I was schooled(lolz), we only acknowledged the 2nd Industrial Revolution (as the 1st no doubt). #-o No, I'm not kidding, but wish I was.

I heard many years ago that a Hungarian scientist claimed ... paraphrasing ... the human species is driving itself crazy and it doesn't know it. His theory is based on the simple yet factual premise that the human digestive system cannot evolve fast enough to absorb the rapidly changing food chain ... as a result of genetic engineering(GMO foods), chemical fertilizers and pesticides etc.

For example ... we eat a tomato today ... when our stomach examines the molecules of the digested tomato it asks ... is this a tomato or a fish? Apparently many years ago arctic char genes were woven into the tomato plant genes ... to expand the tomato plant's tolerance for cold weather ... an early frost.


They don't get the term genius till they can make me into a lesbian. I don't want genetically modified vegetables, I want to be a fruit, fruit of the looms.

Genius is someone who makes something useful to you. It's like Tesla made AC current, guy makes a physics engine for great games, guy makes a coffee machine or a nice car, we call him "genius" as way of saying thankyou. I program a hot fembot you could emotionally connect to im a genius, i program a bot that can work in factories so you don't have to, im genius, i program a bot that makes mediocre tasting foods, im just "smart". If I was a pimp that made a system that gave out fancy whores at a discount price, i might even get called genius by the johns passing by.

Send the idea to the engineers that are working on the DNA machine. I mean, you thought of it. Now we just have to build one right?

Not trying to be a dick or anything, but I do believe that efficiency is an attribute of the natural world, which we, and all our energy gathering methods are a part of. I think that if there were a more efficient way to generate power, that the dollars would go that way. Therefore I think that it's the case that things are the way they are because this is the best possible way.


Not always. For instance, I know how to make a free energy machine, just never made it, due to depression and hating the world.

That is why my pimp idea is such genius, because Health is needed for the knights to get busy. Tesla would have made so much better inventions, we could all have global wifi if tesla got laid. A body without food cannot run. We have all these sexual frustrated teens who don't apply themselves and become great scientists because of the fucked up society we live in. What is it, 60 bux for a back massage? How can you nerd out on the computer, think clearly, and really apply yourself if you have back problems at age 24? Fuck.

No because i dont support the gay lifestyle. Homosexuality was forced on me and i dont want any part of bringing that nightmare on others. Only homosexuality i endorse is hot lesbians.

Also, gays dont need whores because all of them get laid 24/7.
