Elon Musk logic. Musk told Bloomberg back in February that he already has a boring machine. It’s a 2015 model nicknamed Nannie that is 400 feet long and weighs 1,200 tons. Musk says his people are going to take it apart, figure out how it works, and build a new machine that can dig up to 10 times faster. “To make it a little better should be easy,” he says. “To make it five times better is not crazy hard. To make it 10 times better is hard, but nobody will need to win a Nobel Prize. We don’t...

    I don't think that transgenderism is a mentall illness (after, homosexuality was believed to be a mental disease as well in the last century) and I didn't listen to the whole talk because I find shapiro to be rather boring, but there's an hell lot of a difference between what he was saying and harassment\persecution

    btw eacao, the problem I have with shapiro and the likes of him is that they often times seem to be a bit of attention whores, they always go after some hot topic that is under the spotlight at the moment so that they can get the spotlight they crave for

    2) And I never heard him talking about some more serious topic such as geopolitics etc. that requires some actual understanding of the world. it seems to me that all he's good for is debating silly college sophomores and fox news-tier topics

    Where are you seeing this? IMF estimating 2.3% U.S. annual growth for 2017. OECD predicting 2.26%. Feds predicting 2.1%

    Eacao is right. Further, .2% twould be a drop of about 1.8% (plus or minus). What is the basis for such a projected drop?

    One is about attaining knowledge while the other is about food products..markets are a terrible idea for schools (even Sweden ran into problems with it). Low income individuals have no choice either if they can't afford it. Vouchers would probably be the response here but then aren't we just paying as much in the end for schools? Keep them public. The idea of bankrupt schools just baffles me. Profit should not be a motive here. All it does is widen inequality.

    But private != for-profit. There can be charitable schools that sell their services for a low price or none at all (relying on donations, presumably). There is precedent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charity_school

    I get that but some of these privatized ones do need a profit, it's exactly what Sweden was trying to do a few years but schools literally went bankrupt. Don't get me wrong it's totally fine for those charity schools to do what they do but I'd like to know how exactly they would satisfy the educational needs of 50.4 million school children in the US. A lot of resources and structure that even private schools have trouble with when expanding.

    It could completely splinter the human race, those who alter their DNA to become better than their original selves (or in some people's views, better than everyone else) and those who oppose it or can't afford it, who would be pushed even further into poverty.

    indeed, it's one of the most fulfilling cognitive experiences. and speaking of great names, I agree with leonardo da vinci when he stated that "the noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding", and what's even better than that is when you reach that understanding while finding a feeling of intellectual comradeship and elective affinities with the bright minds of the past
