    ^Exactly. It's twitter sensationalism, it's the same thing every time. Some expert fearmongers on every issue this world sees. Popular posts and videos jerking it to the panic.

    The WHO put out a public statement saying that the R0 is 1.4-2.5 btw https://www.who.int/news-room/detail/23-01-2020-statement-on-the-meeting-of-the-international-health-regulations-(2005)-emergency-committee-regarding-the-outbreak-of-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)

    And I didn't even kno...

    And I didn't even know what R0 was until I googled it.

I just saw the first episode of Star Trek: Picard. Really impressive and enjoyable.

    ^You're right, we should solve this by making disease the leading cause of death instead.

    I don't know if that was a tongue in cheek critique.

    I meant human nature. Aging is a natural phenomenon that we may overcome at some point. But even if we're biologically immortal; war, ignorance, greed, and indifference will be our undoing.

    Movie idea: A global killer pandemic in 2060, but the story is told from the perspectives of servant robots, military bots, and personal assistant AIs that watch humans die without risk to themselves.

    Don't fuck Dogs. They don't like it.
    (apparently? I haven't done any comprehensive surveys or anything? Pretty sure PETA is against it and they have probably asked dogs how they feel about it I guess)

    Patrick stewart has voiced all the station announcements apparently, with many of them changed to fit the star trek theme.

How about some good news, for a change? The American Cancer Society just reported a 2.2% drop in the U.S. cancer death rate between 2016 and 2017, the largest single-year decline in mortality ever recorded in the United States.

    I saw this earlier today and tbh thought it was more interesting than what was going on with the US today. I am furious over what is looking like a plane shoot down however. I know a lot of people in Canada are PISSED.

I'm finding it very difficult to be optimistic about the future. The Australian fires have really freaked me out. Perhaps I should rework the timeline into something darker, more dystopian.

    What I mean is that wjfox should change the timeline to what he thinks is accurate if conditions have changed for the worse it should be modified

    I'd say political affairs and climate change impacts are looking darker, but climate change has millions of £s of studies by vested interest which need to be filtered for, and political stuff is going to be impossible to predict with any accuracy I think.

    so it may be easier to focus it as more of a tech-timeline rather than a full global geopolitical forecast.

    No f*****g s***. I never thought *this* would actually happen. Where did 2008/9 go? The sweet days where all I did was play Fallout 3 and draw dicks with my friends. Now we’re living in the weird future. I mean, Donald Trump is the Lord Commander.
