    Thanks say_doyster, and I agree with you. I am concerned at a culture level of where the inevitable trajectory heads. There's been a shift in education away from teaching people how to think, towards...

    Exponential growth sucks. Hopefully awareness, vaccines, changing weather, and natural herd immunity will curb this.

    A lot of data is done per calendar year, such as leading causes of death in...

    I feel the same way. I think it's a bit paradoxical which is why it makes all of our heads spin. More like Yin/Yang iconography where each bleeds into the other, and there is a bit of the other in...

    Agreed, and this is also what makes it so tricky. It absolutely has a place. I remember being in China for a project and was staying with a family. We were out on the town for 1 hour, and despite the...

    Ahh I am jealous of your life in the UK! The ideology will probably cross the pond, I haven't really noticed it until the last couple years but it's sort of an Anthem at least in Portland, OR. My...

    Would love to hear people's observations, thoughts, opinions on this. Also particularly curious to hear from old timers with more life experience. What are your thoughts on, and have you noticed, a...

    This sort of stuff is a conspiracy that’s not a theory, it just is. The perpetual move to keep consumers from owning anything is problematic and in some ways more than a little concerning.

    There’s...

    The Asian countries didn't really need mandatory lockdowns in the way we did, because they have a culture amicable to the notion of voluntarily wearing masks, distancing, etc.

    For magsafe - maybe the rumors are onto something, but perhaps its actually just a stock apple bundled magnetic plug as pictured there where you have the option.

    I hope there’s an option to power it either way. At a coffee shop or public space I definitely want MagSafe; on a cramped plane where I’m sitting with no foot traffic MagSafe just constantly unplugs...

    Rumors say new macbook pros may ditch the touchbar. For all the hate it's gotten, I'm a bit bummed. I think it's a cool tool. Rumors also safe magsafe is coming back, and more ports. Looking forward...

    It seems satire could be at its best when it strives to tell the truth (by not deducing the target of the satire to a strawman) more so than it aims to make a point (avoiding simply trying to win a...

    The art of satire vs sarcasm?

    Satire v Sarcasm seems to be a fine line... On one hand, I think the shortest distance between two people can be laughter, and sarcasm has a way of pointing out inconsistent, contradictory logic and...

    Yeah I hear you. And while it always rubs me a little wrong, it is what it is, I think it crosses the line for me when it stops being an over inflated personal resume. It's one thing to say "I worked...

    On a more media-centric note, I am actually hopeful to see a change in the way big budget films/stories are constructed. The ~2 hour time block is arbitrary and I think everyone's waking up to the...

    The big budget movies we need probably aren't the movies we'll get... but I'm hoping more meaningful themes can be worked into what we will get.
