Pleistocene Rewilding is one of the coolest ideas I've seen in a while. Imagine herds of elephants in North America.

    Yea, it's why I'm an advocate of de-extinction. I want to see what life was like before we came and absorbed them into our biomass.

Genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar needs to stop.

    Amen. There's a ridiculous campaign going on in support of the genocide in media as well trying to frame the Rohingya as deservant, spoiled and scum. Same with the Uyghurs in China-- like terrorist incidents committed by extremists warrants the cultural genocide and forced imprisonment of innocent men women and children.

Reading From Atomos to Atom by Andrew G. Van Melsen rn. It's really refreshing to read given how he's recognizing not only the science, but where the science had its roots in its connection to philosophy. Modern education doesn't put enough emphasis on this in my opinion. Leaving people at least in early undergrad classes without foundations.

Mengde's friends are running short. The scene at the end of episode 2 where they misunderstood the townsfolk hit me.

    Honestly, I love the judge's character though. He was so well thought out and representative of a man who acts political and corrupt on the surface, but underneath he'll sacrifice his whole family and self for the sake of the empire. In a way he's not different than Cao Cao who would willingly sacrifice his household and servants for the chance to kill Dong Zhuo, but unlike Cao Cao he does it for honor and loyalty, not prestige.

Deutsche Bank can't just raise capital to stave off insolvency forever can it?

    It can. ECB can always inject liquidity into it since it is a "too big to fail" bank.

    Oh right, I know that, I meant from private sources. Bailout are one thing, but the bank has been raising capital from private sources the past fee years too and I keep thinking that the people investing in them must be a bit crazy.

Major highways should really be walled off from wildlife while simultaneously providing that wildlife safe access routes over or under the highways. Hit a racoon on the interstate today. Not only did I feel horrible, but it can't be good for the ecosystem.

    Yea, in Canada they make wildlife crossing tunnels and bridges. Animals take a bit to get used to them though.

    Passenger drones, Boring Company tunnels, and onsite manufacturing by industrial 3D printers will likely reduce the amount of traffic, and thus the number of roads needed.

Question for you all. What other cozy forums do you guys browse? Things as big as FTN or slightly bigger only please. I've always loved the vibe here and would love to add to that vibe.

    Only this one and various subreddits. It has done a number on my mental health but I have yet to become a transhumanist incel eco-fascistic eugenicist. I'll give it a few more months.

Is it just me, or does the world feel more tense now than it did during the 2016 U.S election. Brexit, Yellow Vests, Shootings, it just doesn't end. Perhaps I need to take a real mental break from all of this inasmuch as possible. Will still be on the forum of course, just going to avoid politicing for a while.

    Ahh gotcha. Srry for being an asshole. Anarcho-transhumanism is cool though. If you want a link to some of what little literature exists I got you :)

I think it's fair to say bitcoin has corrected from being oversold now. ETH still has yet to correct up though, should be at least 300-400$ now.

My mom works for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. She just told me today that the internal research bulletin sent out a memo to employees predicting their lifespan. My mother is 53. She said they predicted she will live to be 90 and that modern research in healthspan will keep her without debilitating health conditions until the last 5 years of her life. Vis. She will be healthy and able bodied/minded until at least 85.

    That means she has an average chance of living until 2056 where she was born in 1965 according to mainstream medical research. Now, apply how young most of us here are, even Wjfox, and add to that what unexpected breakthroughs and unorthodox research like the SENS foundation might yield by 2056. I think most here do have a fair shot at making to LEV.

    I think I have a better than 50% chance of reaching LEV. I plan to begin regular health checks (blood tests, cholesterol monitoring, etc.) and get my genome sequenced in the next few years. I've made some excellent improvements to my diet, and I get regular exercise now.
