“”Here I was, a man, owned this business, been coming to work every day like a good old guy for 23 years, and I show up at work that morning – I was in here doing my books from the day before – and the police just f***ed my life,” he said.
Nothing ever came of the case. The single charge levied against Renelli of receiving stolen goods was dismissed after he demonstrated that he had followed proper protocol in purchasing the sole laptop computer he was accused of receiving illegally. That said, despite no official charges and no jury trial, Ranelli has been trying, to no avail, for nearly 7 years now to recover the items the officers took from his business.”
“I was writing out stuff on an axiomatic level trusting readers to understand the implications. I’ve since learned I had it backward. I have to catch someone’s interest with something relevant and maybe then they’ll be interested in the principles I’m reasoning from.”
“[T]he fact is most people just aren’t open to persuasion. Because there’s no reason they should be. Ideas aren’t about logic. Ideas are badges of group membership. They are Schelling points. Ideas aren’t things we hold in our “minds”; ideas are things we say. To others. For a reason. A social reason. A Dunbar reason. If saying the same things that NrX says isn’t going to make you more friends, well you aren’t going to say it. If saying what the Alt-right says isn’t going to make you more friends, well you aren’t going to say it.
[…] Any change is welcome, as long as it doesn’t make people lose status. No change is welcome, no matter how good, if people feel the process involves them losing status, even a little, even just a tiny little slight embarrassment in the short term. These of course means there’s a limit to what one can sell; you can only deviate so much from the status quo if you want people to buy in. But the power of compound interest is vast, if the will is there to keep on pushing.”
“I can easily answer all of your questions. But what would you differently if you knew what would happen if you lose? If that’s what you want to know, I’ll tell you everything. But there’s no way for any of you to confirm if I told you the truth.

“Anything that comes from nature cannot be patented. [So] they’re not interested in that. So you translate that into the real world of FDA approval – these drug companies aren’t going to spend twenty million dollars or more testing any substance from nature because they can’t be patented. That, and the FDA says it’s illegal to use unless it’s been tested for efficacy and safety.
You see the Catch-22? Nothing from nature, regardless of how effective it might be, will ever be proven safe or effective, according to the FDA.
Therefore everything from nature will always be condemned by the FDA as “unproven”.”

“Two stories literally right next to each other:
* Hillary Clinton and DNC paid someone to fabricate a dossier, paid news agencies to cover the fake story with no vetting, and paid internet firms to spread the false rumor, all with the explicit goal of swaying voters.
* RT and Sputnik kicked off Twitter for using legal, up-front channels to promote true stories with vetted sources and multiple agencies reporting because it “may” have swayed voters, although no intent to do so, or evidence it did so, has been established.
In other words, Twitter is banning RT for “maybe” doing what Hillary DEFINITELY did- as if anyone needed any more proof that these guys are running a dog and pony show.”

Let’s say you have the white people and the brown people. The white people work hard and farm before winter and store the food, and the brown people just do enough to get by, and then they all starve during the winter.
Now if someone asks, “Why did all the brown people die?”, Coach could say, “It’s because they didn’t store food to survive the winter”.
And this would be a true explanation, but also a stupid explanation. Yes, we know they didn’t store. WHY didn’t they store food? Yes, we know the Arabs and Africans developed totally different institutions. WHY? WHY are they STILL this way? Then you can say “oh they didn’t develop the same institutions as Europeans because of their culture” well golly, where did that culture come from?

“Stack ranking is mostly about scaring the performance middle classes– people who won’t get promoted and therefore have no incentive to push themselves, but who are skillful and productive enough that the company still needs their work– and has little to do with the people affected. The people let go in “low performer initiatives”– and, again, only a third will be actual low-performers– aren’t hated; they’re just collateral damage in management’s effort to squeeze the middling workers, and to transfer wealth from the workers (lower salary expenses) to themselves (executive bonuses). Second, stack ranking enables the people in power to stay there by pitting those below them against each other. It creates a culture where no one feels safe and people will destroy each other to get to the top.“

“I once worked for a large company that acquired another large company. Why? Patents. The goal was to reach a “mutually assured destruction” state with other software companies that held patents and were fixing to sue. What was in the patents? No one had, or took, time to read them. How would they play out in court? It didn’t matter; most were unenforceable, because most software patents are ludicrous and over-broad, but that was known. The number was what mattered. If all the major software companies hold patents (most of which are unenforceable bullshit patents) in approximately equal number, then they are in a stalemate and no one gets sued.
[…] Kristine Kathryn Rusch does an excellent job of summarizing these changes in trade publishing. It’s no longer about improving, marketing, and distributing books. It’s about financialization: the acquisition of intellectual property for less than it’s worth. From an expected value perspective, a debut novel written by anyone persistent enough to suffer literary agents’ bullshit (the long waits, the finicky submission guidelines, the aggressive negging that agents deploy in order to get authors to accept bad deals) and land one is probably worth $5,000.”
“Qin, the first emperor of China, created the first highly centralized state, with a centralized bureaucracy instead of a distributed aristocracy. And of course, wound up with a far too powerful prime minister – the classic evil vizier.
The prime minister wanted to kill the next emperor, but was not sure he could get away with it. So, to test whether he can get away with it:
brings a deer into the palace, calls the emperor to come out, and says “look your majesty, a brought you a fine horse”. The Emperor, not amused, says “Surely you are mistaken, calling a deer a horse. Right?”. Then the emperor looks around at all the ministers. Some didn’t say a word, just sweating nervously. Some others loudly proclaimed what a fine horse this was. Great horse. Look at this tail! These fine legs. Great horse, naturally prime minister Zhao Gao has the best of tastes.
And next thing you know, anyone who doubted it was a horse was executed, and shortly thereafter the emperor.”

“How is PUBG different? Is the company and its devs are saints? Far from it. They sell lootboxes which are totally cosmetic (I’m sure that if you spend a bigger sum, the circle centers on you for a few games), and they openly declare streamers above the law.
But the PUBG game design is inherently unfair, which is refreshing compared to the “we are totally fair game” schemes. It’s 1v99. Everyone on the map is your enemy. Everything tries to kill you. Losing 1v99 is much less frustrating than losing a totally fair game. Winning 1v99 is much more rewarding than winning a fair 1v1. Also, the autoaim cheaters, dev’s friends and crate buyers are not necessarily killing you. They are also killing each other, giving you a chance to climb high.
A game of open chance, where circle placement heavily influences the outcome, where random loot can decide if you are fully decked after a house or have nothing but a pump-action shotgun after 10 is better than one where you expect fairness but there is none. PUBG success is the symptom of the frustration with lack of game fairness. The abandonment of the hope of fair 1v1 and embracing 1v99 instead.”
“Why are Japanese mechs in video games so ridiculous and unrealistic?”
“Westfags just don’t get it, they see all of their inventions and machines of war as nothing but tools. Giant robots are the most powerful personification of a single warrior on the battlefield fighting larger than life circumstances. They have a personality and style that can’t be matched by simple tanks and jets, and often become characters in and of themselves, perhaps because of the human form, and people often even find themselves caring when they get damaged or destroyed, just as much as the pilots inside.
They are symbols of man’s determination and spirit, being a mechanical tribute to himself. They are more like warhorses than tanks, companions in battle instead of tools. The mecha is man’s projection of his desires and willpower on to a body with the power to achieve them, the human serving as part of the machine’s soul. They are the “men” that surpass man’s limits, and they look damn cool.”

“I’d wager that the makeup industry is more destructive to our natural resources than coal production. Every type of foundation is made with kaolin, a natural clay whose mining is quite destructive. Lipstick is derived from palm oil, which is farmed in massive monoculture plantations. Talcum powder is derived from talc, a member of the asbestos family of minerals. Mascara is typically laden with nylon or rayon fibers to increase the length of the eyelashes, not to mention a litany of dyes and additives to attain the desired aesthetic result.The worst part is, at the end of the day, most of this makeup just goes down the drain, only to be applied again tomorrow.Most women’s skin looks pallid and diseased when their makeup is removed because their skin is never exposed to sunlight underneath their porcelain masks, only getting a chance to breathe at night – provided that the woman doesn’t sleep in her makeup. There’s a reason why it’s called makeup, they’re either making something up or making up for something.”
“The biggest issue is that it’s not just roasties wearing fucktons of makeup. I used to work at a high end beauty products store and around Christmas they’d fill the store with bins of the cheapest garbage lotions, lip glosses, eye shadows etc. Like a 5 for $20 deal. These young girls would be waiting outside with their moms before we even opened the doors. These little girls are literally covering themselves with chemicals from head to toe starting before puberty. The lotions are the most insidious, because they smell delicious, like cookies or honeydew melon, but they are loaded with alcohols that dry skin as well parabens which have been linked to breast cancer. Use organic, cold pressed coconut oil for dry skin, rashes and healing skin, for both men and women.As far as the high end products go, it’s exactly like fashion. You are paying for a brand name. $80 for foundation, $40 for one lipstick, $30 for one shade of eye shadow. And perfume? Put a celebrity on a bottle and we couldn’t even keep it in stock. Women are extremely proud of how much their makeup costs. Quality is rarely factored into it. One thing I learned from the experience was that very few women care whether something is worth what the price tag is asking. They simply buy to be able to signal to others that they can afford it, all the better if it costs more than what another woman has. Advertisers and the companies that make the products know this all too well. That’s why often the same exact product will cost more if it says “Womens” or “for Her” on it than the one marketed towards men.”
