Right. The entire weekend free. What should I write about? (a) Nuclear weapons phasing out. (b) Human-like androids widespread in society, circa 2065-75. (c) Something else?

Just a reminder to everyone that the President of the United States is a racist piece of shit. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53774289

    Not at all surprising. If he weren't president, he'd be doing exactly this anyways.

    Unfortunately, the discussions this coming election election will be dominated squarely via race, identity, and the like, taking away from class concerns, economic redistribution, and climate change.

    However, the one immediate major issue that does need to be addressed is the pandemic, which a Biden/Harris administration would be light-years better on. No doubt on that, so hopeful...

    Democrats are fake progressives who still shamelessly exploit the proletariat but get painted as left and are thus far more perilous to the left then the right who are clear antagonists. That's the far-left hatred of the democrats paraphrased.

    ^Which never ceases to amaze me. It's about knowing when to pick your battles. You can't fight everybody, all the time. The far-left progressives need to realize this, and stop going after their own for a minute. Once Trump is out, then sure, go ahead and do your thing.

How many of you guys have played Detroit: Become Human? I finished it last night. Absolutely stunning game. So many beautiful, profound moments. https://twitter.com/future_timeline/status/1292083141197172737

    Well in the game, they're pretty much equal to humans in terms of overall intelligence. But have extra abilities like sensing their environment, planning routes, etc.

    Played but I believe only to over halfway, as I was still on one of the other character's stories. I liked it well enough but was doing other things when I put it on hold.

    I remember the game having a lot of attention to detail, the developers made it pretty realistic imo regarding world events, and technological progress leading up to the issues presented in the game.

    I wouldn't be shocked at all if people have a similar reaction to the likes and automation, we...

    The language model can be scaled up quickly to have more parameters than the human brain. It's just a matter of time before it becomes superhuman in some tasks.

Twitter thread from Seth Abramson outlines a rather nightmarish scenario about what Trump/Barr may be planning: https://twitter.com/SethAbramson/status/1288882406536228866

    Very good read. I think that if Biden wins, even with Trump saying the election was invalid, he should take the office. Under no circumstance should Biden agree to a rerun, or delay. If the military and the rest of the goverment has any integrity and respect for democracy, they will escort Trump out in January.

    My understanding is that Revolutionary Moderate is correct. Regarding 10 Year March's comment, while Trump may be a wannabe fascist, he simply does not have that power. What is dangerous is how this all may play into a later strategy of trying to set the results aside. "I warned you that there may be massive fraud..." etc.

    Shitty and incredibly stupid country I've given up on anyways, I'm just waiting for the border to Canada to reopen at this point.

    I'm not even that physically far from them, but I cannot go as a non-essential. Then I can get some much needed therapy, refocus on career, and generally put a break on the garbage politics. Can't wait for better horizons.

Out of morbid curiosity, I inputted the world case numbers for COVID-19 into Excel and then plotted a future trend line. There's no end in sight. The virus just keeps growing and growing, for decades.

    If you check the ratio of Cases to Deaths , there is a decline.

    decades ? Even with vaccine ?
