The US government is now in a gridlock in the TRUEST sense. The gridlockiest it's ever been!

Some people on Twitter tweet way too much. Makes it hard to find stuff, and the search feature isn't very good (perhaps intentionally, to reduce flame wars). In fact, some Tweet so much they must spend basically all day on Twitter.

    Yeah, I make a point of checking somebody's account/profile page when deciding whether to follow, and if they have 20,000+ tweets in a short period, it's obvious they're going to clutter-up my feed, so I don't follow. I prefer quality over quantity.

    What they write is lost in a blizzard of Tweets, completely diluting their message, whatever it is. I wonder sometimes if they are on amphetamines.

    Cyborgs are weird, I don't know how people stay connected like that for 24/7 without passing out. I often leave my phone when I go out, and sometimes don't look at it for days.

If the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump all gave $80 they'd have the 5 billion for the wall with no problems right? Considering how strongly they feel about it $80 doesn't seem like much?

    @eacao Yes, I was having a conversation with a liberal friend the the other night where I was criticizing electoral politics by saying they take energy away from direct action and movement building. Playing devil's advocate he said but what if people build movements you don't like, pointing to republicans here (not alt-right.) And I said having people politically engaged in real democracy is better than them not and I'm not so hostile to conservatives that I think it's the end...

    end of the world when they movement build. Point is, yes, the same applies to obamacare. Although, the majority of the population consistently polls in favor of single payer healthcare so it's kind of a bad example.

    But again, I don't care what the house or senate or what and find then illegitimate regardless of party. I care about what the people want, which is a very different thing.

Watching movies from the 70s, I sometimes think, "Were we really that stupid?" Old styles, old patterns of thought, once seemed so new and pertinent, now seem laughable.

    An article about the UFO craze of the 60s and 70s: https://groovyhistory.com/the-ufo-craze-of-the-60s-and-70s People were obsessed with UFOs. There were lots of colorful books about them, too. It all kind of died down in 80s. The X-Files revived it a little. The X-Files was just a hodgepodge of 60s, 70s, and 80s fads about UFOs, psychic powers, Native Americans, etc.

    I want to add one more thing: you know that story about Elizabeth Warren claiming Native American ancestry? Know where it comes from? In the 60s, 70s, and even the 80s, everything Native American was in fashion. People fantasized about being part Native American. People under about 30 years of age probably don't know that.

    People didn't know their ancestry, and relied on stories. This was before the Internet (in its modern incarnation), remember. Some would claim "I'm 1/16 Native American"; actual NAs would roll their eyes. And when they found out they were plain white-bread through and through, it was such a letdown.

Yep, lets wipe out the sex that does 90% of the innovation and exporation of our species. How is that advancing futurism? Lets make our species unable to survival a super volcano or an asteroid impact...Believe me, it could happen. The family really is the one thing we should never give up.

    But yes, the Western-style nuclear family is an absolutely wonderful arrangement and hopefully it will persist for centuries and millennia to come.

    Well, this thread is an improvement over the last ones (but still whimpering). Imagine how complicated gender politics would be if we had multiple types of males and females... like the sandpiper: https://www.theguardian.com/world/shortcuts/2015/nov/17/ruff-sandpiper-gender-fluid-bird (One rare type of male looks like a large female -- but with large testes.)

Interesting piece on a former 9/11 Truther: http://www.cracked.com/personal-experiences-2278-i-was-professional-911-truther-and-i-gave-it-up.html "I''m very extroverted, very loudmouthed ... anything to do with narcissism, attention-seeking, that was my bag."

    It sounds like to him it was partly a big joke / ego trip, and partly something he actually believed. The line between the two was blurry. Then, he talked to the mother of one of the victims:...

    "I cracked and broke down in tears. It was the true human emotion of a mother who lost her kid that changed me. The others believed it was a fake recording and that she was in on it. It was the monstrous ugliness of the other theorists which set me on edge."
