“AI experts” are crawling out of the woodwork, intent on driving us mad. But they know nothing about AI, or can’t, or won’t explain anything about it, at least not properly.
Cars changed: Instead of mediocre crapmobiles that rust and rot, wobbling, squeaking and rattling, down the road, they’ve become durable, quality pieces.
The change wasn’t that they became generally good machines, though. Or that their styling held up for longer without becoming so dated. It was the change in mindset, at the car companies, that was remarkable.
Bitcoin did a split and holders are twice as rich! Don’t you wish YOU were them?
Some people have wisely observed that Bitcoin is a pyramid scheme. It is, but the reason why is not at all clear.
And so suckers are still buying in to Bitcoin (BTC), while better ideas languish. It’s incredible.
We’re held in contempt by government, “higher-ups,” and corporations, as we’ve seen. But can you blame them?
Maybe we aren’t taught much in school, but, for the most part, we don’t even seem to be able to apply the few truths that we are taught.
Like those about gases, and density.
Why this current spate of crazy airline stories? I know from experience that airline travel is pretty crazy, but currently it’s been an avalanche of stories.
Is Trump a deliberate mockery of the populist, homespun character, the “everyman,” in a country where “any boy could grow up to be president?” Sort of like Bush was a parody of the privileged frat boy.
Note this: It doesn’t seem to matter what certain protected businesses do, they know they can count on a bailout. For example: General Motors (GM). Like Ford, it produced millions upon millions of trash cars. It was willful in its disdain for the consumer. But it skated clear, dumped a bunch of obligations, and poked its ugly head up again, thanks to government. It is legally a different company, but with mostly the same old idiots at the helm, so what’s changed?
In the U.S., the “Glass-Steagall act” prevented, at least to an extent, financial gamesters from pirating the economy, by limiting some of the ways that the economy could be robbed and exploited. Then they effectively repealed Glass-Steagall, and the financial system was rigged and played to the point of breakdown. Then they supposedly implemented some “controls,” but nothing stops them from just turning around and “repealing” again, then robbing, cheating, stealing and crashing the financial system again.
A post consisting of random oddball stuff found online: spelling and other language disasters, mostly from commenters on various websites.
How do we tell if we’re being fed a line, by experts or so-called experts, to do something against our interests, and what does this have to do with science?
And how is it, if we don’t know a little about science, we end up getting the shaft?
