“Nothing inherently wrong with using other peoples code (thats ultimately no different from what libraries and/or frameworks are depending on the language) but what I view as being totally destructive to the world of programming is that everyone has been incolcated that abstraction is all-important which leads to people not caring about 1) not caring to understand what those libraries and structures do internally and 2) people forcing things into object-oriented schemes where a few lines of procedural code could do just as well.”

“So my last post on Nassim Taleb’s mental retardation has triggered quite a lot of laughs and chuckles, and also some criticism. Some people say I was not rigorous enough when writing about Nassim Taleb’s books.
To those people I say: hold my beer. Seriously, people, this is a blog. A free blog, which I write under a pseudonym. I seek nothing from my writing, besides it being an avenue to make interesting friends. Which I have, dozens of them, and God bless them. But surely in this little place of mine which I offer free of charge, I’m entitled to shit on people for fun once in a while, especially if they’ve given good reason, as Taleb did by saying the most retarded thing that anyone can say: that black overpopulation is not a problem because they’ll turn out just as smart as the Germanic tribes did in post-Roman Europe.
That’ s not just retarded, that’s the most harmful and dangerous thing that you can say, period. The most dire danger to Western Civilization, to our lands, to our families, to our friends, to everything we hold dear, is the demographic replacement of Western populations by immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. Taleb is saying that’s not a problem! Well, fuck Taleb, fuck his books, his goatee, his accent. Fuck his deadlift, his insecurity about his racial background, and everything about him. And fuck you.
And besides, this kind of pedantic arguments about “oh you didn’t spend weeks reading his book to understand the math”, or concern trolling about the effects on group morale of criticizing a man who (to his credit, which I had always given before this week) at least makes a point of looking and sounding like a real man and not a soy-infused mangina, reveal you are the kind of person that Taleb hates. Taleb is a middle-eastern man who, by sheer biology, just can’t stand North-Western European nerds. And to be honest I can relate to that. So at any rate, don’t be a nerd and defend Taleb with nerdy, over-rigorous arguments. I don’t care, and he hates your guts.”
“The real problem in our world is that high-IQ people, not just nerds, but just basically everybody half-functional, is failing to produce children, leaving a huge demographic vacuum which greedy business-owners and evil politicians are using to import dumb and hostile foreigners into our lands. *That* is the problem. And in our modern world, where the rights of ethnic peoples to their own homelands on purely ethnic and historical grounds is not accepted (because Nazis), in our modern scientistic modern world where the only acceptable public arguments must be written in the form of formal science, the only effective, true, empirically provable, and most importantly, legal argument to oppose the influx of millions of dumb and hostile immigrants into our lands, is the biological basis of IQ, and the different distribution of IQ between racial groups.
[…] All we have is IQ, which individually tells you indeed very little about how useful a man is going to be for a particular task, but when averaged over populations tells you if a place is a shithole full of dumb people, or it’s a civilized and mildly pleasant place. IQ does an *exceptional* job at predicting that. Japan is nice. Denmark is nice. Morocco is not nice. Black Africa is awful. You may not like China, but it’s orders of magnitude more pleasant to live in than India.”

“What’s remarkable is how the rest of us responded to it. We didn’t question why Sandberg was saying this. We didn’t laugh in her face at the pure absurdity of it. Our corporate media celebrated Sandberg as the leader of a liberation movement. Her book became a bestseller: “Lean In.” As if putting a corporation first is empowerment. It is not. It is bondage. Republicans should say so.
They should also speak out against the ugliest parts of our financial system. Not all commerce is good. Why is it defensible to loan people money they can’t possibly repay? Or charge them interest that impoverishes them? Payday loan outlets in poor neighborhoods collect 400 percent annual interest.
We’re OK with that? We shouldn’t be. Libertarians tell us that’s how markets work — consenting adults making voluntary decisions about how to live their lives. OK. But it’s also disgusting. If you care about America, you ought to oppose the exploitation of Americans, whether it’s happening in the inner city or on Wall Street.”
“Our leaders rarely mention any of this. They tell us our multi-tiered tax code is based on the principles of the free market. Please.

They did increase their economic advantage. But for everyone else, it came at a big cost. Unfairness is profoundly divisive. When you favor one child over another, your kids don’t hate you.

A country where Lewiston, Maine seems almost as important as the west side of Los Angeles. A country where environmentalism means getting outside and picking up the trash. A clean, orderly, stable country that respects itself. And above all, a country where normal people with an average education who grew up in no place special can get married, and have happy kids, and repeat unto the generations. A country that actually cares about families, the building block of everything.”

“Whatever the intent, critics are going absolutely berserk over the movie because the Nazi boy is depicted as always brave, always caring and there’s even a scene where he reveals surreptitiously listens to Billie Holiday and says he “loves nigger music” which inexplicably causes a positive romantic reaction from the black girl, Leyna.
Also Leyna doesn’t approve of Nazism altogether but at various points in the movie she does say she’s proud to be German (she’s supposed to be a French Algerian soldier’s WWI rape baby) and she hates Jews.”

“My favorite part of “woke culture” is how every ethnicity, religion, or minority identity has this codified list of ways they’re supposed to act and things they’re supposed to believe, and they fucking SEETHE and rage and throw a shitfit at anyone who’s part of their tribe that doesn’t adhere to those stereotypes.
Black people fucking hate being stereotyped in any way, but they also will literally beat down and ruin other black people who don’t fall into that victim shit and just do whatever they want.
It’s fucking hilarious because it’s like watching a family that all hates eachother get together for the holidays.”
“Well that’s sort of the undercurrent, that blacks don’t get along with ANYONE, as evident by the fact that as soon as the social justice shit started revving up a while ago, the black people were real quick to split off with their “white feminism” shit. That’s the underlying condition, that SJWs in general can’t tolerate eachother because they all have to compete in the oppression olympics to prove they have more oppression points, and thus are more valid and correct.
But the more important part is that they don’t actually want to acknowledge this. It’s like, they do it behind closed doors, in meetings among themselves, but they can’t show the world (if possible) how fractured and non-functioning the SJW whole is. They have to pretend to get along and support eachother, and be outraged for eachother by the same things, while behind the scenes they talk shit and snap at one another over who is more woke and who is more oppressed.
So on this movie, you’ve got the gamut. Some people say it’s trash because it fictionalizes the Holocaust and the struggle of the Jews, others say it’s exploiting black people’s trauma, others that it uses black people to try and absolve the crimes of the Nazis. No one can agree WHY they should hate it, just that they should because…it’s about Nazis?”

“Liberalism emerged in northwest Europe. This was where conditions were most conducive to dissolving the bonds of kinship and creating communities of atomized individuals who produce and consume for a market. Northwest Europeans were most likely to embark on this evolutionary trajectory because of their tendency toward late marriage, their high proportion of adults who live alone, their weaker kinship ties and, conversely, their greater individualism. This is the Western European Marriage Pattern, and it seems to go far back in time. The market economy began to take shape at a later date, possibly with the expansion of North Sea trade during early medieval times and certainly with the take-off of the North Sea trading area in the mid-1300s.”
“The Flynn effect does not, in itself, seem to be a real increase in intelligence. Rather, it is simply a greater familiarity by people with the process of doing tests and, as such, has masked an underlying decline in real intelligence. Now that the Flynn effect has exhausted itself, we are seeing this underlying decline.”
“A century ago the market economy was important, but a lot of economic activity still took place within the family, especially in rural areas. In the late 1980s I interviewed elderly French Canadians in a small rural community, and I was struck by how little the market economy mattered in their youth. At that time none of them had bank accounts. Few even had wallets. Coins and bills were kept at home in a small wooden box for special occasions, like the yearly trip to Quebec City. The rest of the time these people grew their own food and made their own clothes and furniture. Farms did produce food for local markets, but this surplus was of secondary importance and could just as often be bartered with neighbors or donated to the priest. Farm families were also large and typically brought together many people from three or four generations.
By the 1980s things had changed considerably. Many of my interviewees were living in circumstances of extreme social isolation, with only occasional visits from family or friends. Even among middle-aged members of the community there were many who lived alone, either because of divorce or because of relationships that had never gone anywhere. This is a major cultural change, and it has occurred in the absence of any underlying changes to the way people think and feel.”

“I had a coworker back around 2002 who after tax time sat down with his wife and figured out that after they paid day care, income taxes etc they made an additional $3,000 by both of them working instead of one person working. Therefore, effectively, either he or his wife worked for $3,000 that year. Of course this came with the satisfaction of being somebody else’s horse for a whole year, ahaving their children raised by strangers and wearing out one of their vehicles for no good reason. Since they both made about the same amount of money they only had one decision. She gave her notice the next week. Because she had time at home she started a home based business which he helped with on days off. They ended up making about $10,000 more money a year than when she was working.

“And in response to what I’m sure is coming next, you, yes you, the one writing the essay about how being a youtuber isn’t a real job, we shouldn’t have all this overhead, we should just do it out of passion like we used to,
One: A job is anything you can get paid to do. And we’re doing okay. Some of us even wear decent clothes.
Two: To jog your memory, I used to work at a computer store. In fact, every single person in this video had been paid to make Linus Tech Tips videos the moment they started making Linus Tech Tips videos.
Leading to number Three: Of course we’re passionate! Are you kidding? There are a lot of things that I would rather not stress about. Like, commercial propery leases. Insurance. Equipment breakage. Taxes. Scheduling. Dealing with staff vacation times. But I do all of this crap that I don’t enjoy, because I am passionate about making the best videos we can, and about running a real business that has allowed us to make 7gamers, or Ultimate Desk PC, Scrapyard Wars, projects that wouldn’t have been possible if I was still hand camming unboxings in a parking lot with Luke.
You can criticize me for plenty of stuff, but slam me for lacking passion? I mean, you’re probably the same people asking why I built my own server room instead of hiring someone to do it properly: because I love playing with this stuff! Why do you think I do it? If I wasn’t personally passionate about making tech videos, there would be no reason for me to make an embarrassing face in a thumbnail to try and grow this company. You think I want to explain to my kids why I’m always looking like this? Honestly, do I even seen like the kind of person who needs a lot of material things to be happy? Do you think this is about the money? I live in the same house, I drive the same car, and I wear the same abominable cheap footwear that I always did.

“On arrival in California on May 18, Omori was astonished to discover that while there were leading science and engineering universities around the San Francisco Bay, there were no earthquake researchers. California was an increasingly sophisticated society, and fast losing its frontier and gold rush mentality, but it retained a deeply held prejudice that engaging in earthquake research would imply that there was a tangible “earthquake problem.”
The late-nineteenth-centure Californian scientists whose work in some way touched earthquake science all observed the requirement to play down the threat. The astronomer Edward Holden wrote: “The earthquakes of a whole Century in California have been less destructive than the tornadoes or the floods of a single year in less favored regions.” This assessment was not much less rhetorical than the newspaper that proclaimed after the 1868 disaster: “Earthquakes are trifles as compared with runaway horses, apothecaries’ mistakes, accidents with firearms, and a hundred other little contingencies which we all face without fear.””

“The characters were written with the intent to ship them to Gearbox for inclusion into the mainstream Borderlands games.
THAT isn’t the reason they were good. That’s just the premise of their design and it could have gone south. The reason why they were good was because the writers decided the best fucking way to convince Gearbox pick up said characters was to write the best and most compelling characters they could.

“Americans wonder why their houses lack charm. The word charm may seem fussy, trivial, vague. I use it to mean explicitly that which makes our physical surroundings worth caring about. It is not a trivial matter, for we are presently suffering on a massive scale the social consequences of living in places that are not worth caring about. Charm is dependent on connectedness, on continuities, on the relation of one thing to another, often expressed as tension, like the tension between private and public space, or the sacred and the workaday, or the interplay of a space that is easily comprehensible, such as a street, with the mystery of openings that beckon, such as a doorway set deeply in a building. Of course, if the public space is degraded by cars and their special needs – as it always is in America, whether you live in Beverly Hills or Levittown – the equation is spoiled. If nothing is sacred, then everything is profane.”
“This habit of resorting to signs and symbols to create the illusion of charm in our everyday surroundings is symptomatic of a growing American character disorder: the belief that it is possible to get something for nothing. The germ of this disorder probably has been with us for a very long time, because this was such a bountiful land. But our economic luck in the aftermath of World War II accelerated the syndrome. Life was so easy here for so many for such a long time that Americans somehow got the idea that you merely had to wish something was so in order to make it so. The culture of advertising – which bombarded Americans daily, hourly – eroded our capacity to distinguish between the truth and the lies. And not even in moral terms, but on the practical level. You could label a house “traditional” and someone would accept it, even if all the traditional relationships between the house and its surroundings were obliterated. You could name a housing development Forest Knoll Acres even if there was no forest and no knoll, and the customers would line up with their checkbooks open. Americans were as addicted to illusions as they were to cheap petroleum. They had more meaningful relationships with movie stars and characters on daytime television shows than they did with members of their own families. They didn’t care if things were real or not, if ideas were truthful. In fact, they preferred fantasy. They preferred lies. And the biggest lie of all was that place they lived was home.”

“Agan and Starr (2017) analyzed 15,000 job applications and found that asking applicants about their criminal history reduced racial bias in hiring. This was supported via two sorts of findings. First, among those firms which used applications with a criminal history box, the call back rate for criminals was 8.6% for Blacks and 8.3% for Whites, and the call back rate for non-criminals was 13.1% for Blacks and 14% for Whites. However, among those firms which did not include a criminal history box and therefore could not differentiate between criminals and non criminals, the call back rates were 9.4% for blacks and 12.5% for whites. More impressively, this study takes advantage of a legal ban on such boxes. Restricting the analysis to firms that had boxes before the ban, it is shown that when using boxes there was hardly any racial bias at all but once the ban went into effect the call back rate for whites was 14.8% compared to just 8.7% for blacks. (Figures 1 and 2 provide good bad charts for this). This is strong support for the notion that call back rate bias is due to employers rationally using race as a proxy for non-racial characteristics. Under this view, we would expect the use of such proxies to increase as direct access to those non-racial characteristics are removed.”
“When someone doing a loyalty test says to someone ‘if you value me then jump through these hoops’, and they jump through the hoops, he is pleased with them for demonstrating loyalty.
When someone doing a fitness test says to someone ‘if you value me then jump through these hoops’, and they jump through the hoops, she will be displeased with them for failing to demonstrate mastery (by putting her in her place).
Generally speaking, you will see men doing loyalty tests, and women doing fitness tests.
When a female perceives a man as failing fitness tests (sometimes known also colloquially as ‘shit tests’), she instinctively cringes away from them; to even think of men which they perceive as low fitness (according to their instinctual criteria [id est, ‘beta’]) feels disgusting, and in fact sociopathically murderous even; if they have troubles they will have no sympathy, and would love it if they were too instantly burst into flames and drop dead on the spot even.
A female is basically perceiving everything through this lens, whether it’s academic debates, or military affairs, or your local PTO meeting. For example, a chick CEO in charge of a company will start doing dumb shit that will ruin the business, because she will instinctively perceive men working under her loyally for the company as contemptible betas deserving of death and ruin, and by acting out to mess things up, will hope it ‘smokes out’ an alpha who will see her misbehavior and beat her with a stick for it before taking (her) over.”
