I just can't get over the amazement at myself for feeling bored at hearing news about SpaceX rocket reuses.

    It's definitely a perspective change. I'm sure being inundated with news that appeals to futurists also contributes.

    The perspective change is in knowing what more is possible and expected.

    Also thinking about realistic scenarios of those techs tends to make them more mundane and not too advanced compared to what we have and so not too futuristic.

    So living of a space station in not to different then on a self sustaining bulding on earth , and uplaoding is more of a cross between a lucid dream and online VR teleoperation.

    I'm sure you can come up with descriptions of future techs that make them more mundane familiar and more of the same.

I'm actually crying right now ;-; My cat Serenity has renal failure. She's only got a few months to a year left to live and the thought of losing her is unbearable. She's been through everything with me. When my family dies, I lose my house, or lose friends, or am so depressed I can't move. She's always there cuddling up to me ;-;

    @ Yuli and Outlook. That's a big part of what's so hard about. She was lathargic and in pain a few weeks ago. We switched her diet to food that she could process and gave her an appetite stimulant and now she's back to running around and being herself. But I'm fully aware that it won't last forever :(

This whole series is amazing for understanding the right and alt-right in America(and maybe other countries) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJA_jUddXvY7v0VkYRbANnTnzkA_HMFtQ

    Yes, I love this series as well, and it offers a lot of great analysis on the topic. My only quip is that it's very theoretical. It's one guy's take on the situation, not research, which should be obvious when watching it, but there's always going to be people who watch School of Life and think that it's an actual philosophy education course, and not one dumbass reading wikipedia articles and posting his thoughts on Spinoza as a summary of Spinoza.

Today's the 100th anniversary of Poland's independence. After approximately 123 years of partitions (My country wasn't even on map but the people and our culture survived), two World Wars, and 50 years of Communism we are now (Hopefully) on a road to a bright future.

    You're good, apologies for coming off as combative. Fascism in Poland is absolutely something to be aware of too.

    Poland was on the way to a bright future between 1945 and 1989 (perhaps less so after 1956). But after that it wasn't, the baby got thrown out with the bathwater.

    Also, by identifying as a fascist fascist and pointing out that a fascist government would actively censor me, you just admitted to NOT SUPPORTING FREE SPEECH.

Watching the John Adams HBO miniseries. If this is true to fact, America during the revolution had some of the greatest men in the world short of Napolean during that time period

Cancer deaths in the U.S. will be largely eliminated by 2150 – according to my latest graph (hopefully being added to our timeline this weekend).

    I was surprised to see that Paul Allen died from cancer related complications. It goes to show that the reduction of cancer deaths will be multifactorial.

    50 year improvement from this blog huh? Not bad I guess for the 5 years that separate the prognostications.

    That seems way too conservative to me, but I guess I'm looking at a singularity scenario a hundred years before that date.

    What's it going to take for Democrats to realize they have to actually resist authoritarianism?
    This government has already show it's fine with lying and breaking the law in a way past U.S governments haven't.

I've been trying to find this perfect recording of Moazart's Requiem I once listened to, specifically for Introitus, and Kyrie, my two favourites, but instead I'm like travelling through a realm of different interpretations of the piece, and I've like been like listening to the same song ten different times but in ten different ways, with ten different emotions.

    But still, I miss that one recording. It was just so perfectly epic, and it caught the feeling of divinity in a way no other recording did.

    Found it, finally! It's Karajan's recording. I don't know him, but they say he's a genius composer, and god bless him, he captured divinity.

    I went to look up INTJ, and went through the site's examples, and they included Vladimir Putin, and now I can't stop smiling at their caricature of him.
