Re: COVID-19 News and Discussions

@Caltrek Aww you're welcome thankyou. For that matter I don't think everything you were saying is wrong. I'm a very fervent debater as you know. I genuinely liked your post referencing the Board of Atomic Scientists and think that there is value in criticizing China should it conclusively be found t...

My primary nitpick is with the ecology questions, there were ...

Re: Climate Change News & Discussions

That thread being locked is really just the icing on the cake. I think there is a concerted cultural phenomena to suppress and otherwise censor substantive discussion of climate change and ecology in this society. I call it a cultural phenomena because though I do believe that there is active inform...

Re: Past Timeline

The red has grown on me. It's a really good contrast colour to the blue on FT. I really like the transparency on the year banners, slick but not so minimalist that it loses form.

Re: COVID-19 News and Discussions

Due to waning flu immunity caused by more aggressive social distancing last year we might expect the flu to come back with a very strong season whenever it does. At first I had hopes that covid had killed off the flu entirely which was a speculation going around at one point. Now i’m hoping for the ...

Re: Climate Change News & Discussions

That would require the Biden Administration to both actually desire to bring down carbon emissions even if it threatens a given industry that acts as a lobbying force and it would require a spine. Two things the administration does not have.

Re: Personal chat thread

/\ So that’s where that image came from! Fitting for a futurist forum though I much prefer avatars that aren’t people for aesthetic reasons online. They feel more old internet to me. Anywho. Completely unrelated, having covid anxiety again. I really hate this. The uncertainty, not knowing if my mom ...

Re: Prediction China will lose the "cold war"

Regardless of who is correct, calling someone brainwashed just because they disagree with you is a little excessive don't you think? Not that I'm the one that said it, and generally I use more "polite" language. However, reading Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord and then reexamining ...

Re: COVID-19 News and Discussions

The only two reasons this is a “debate” are to attempt to paint China as incompetent for the purpose of imperial conflict and to deflect from human impact on the ecosystem. I don't think we should come to conclusions based on the possible political motivations of those making the argument. We could...

Re: General gaming news and discussion

How many of you guys have played Mass Effect? I'm downloading the Legendary Edition right now (120GB). Should take another 6 hours or so... Everything's great until the ending of 3. I've heard that the devs fixed this but I don't know because I haven't played since then. If the ending disappoints y...
