If dystopian reparations happen, I will very likely leave the country and renounce my US citizenship. Fortunately I have dual citizenship.

    All the free education for their kids that those kids wouldn't get otherwise, 20-30 years longer lives, cheap food that they can walk into a store to get and a lot more. But at the end of the day it is a fuck you to us for giving them the privilege.

    Very dark future ahead for Hong Kong. Wouldn't be surprised to see some kind of underground independence network resort to violence in the coming decades.

I think college sports should be abolished. Obviously there's nothing wrong with informal clubs competing for fun, but this multi-billion dollar industry is a complete ripoff.

    I'd prefer it if college sports as we know them died out, but Minor League sports got more popular. That way, jocks who go to college on athletic scholarships would still be able to play sports. They've even get paid for it in the minor leagues, whereas on college teams they can't.

    Athletics programs in colleges are probably largely a free market business decision -- Europe is more socialist, so probably funds their colleges more. In the U.S., athletic programs lead to *enormous* amounts of money in the form of endowments. If schools ended the programs, I daresay donor money would dry up. I'm afraid it's a necessary evil, unless people want higher taxes.

I'm giving a seminar on deep graphical models next Friday. But I struggle to make a decent sandwich.

    You have (hopefully!) spent much more time studying and practicing things relating to deep graphical models than you have spent practicing and studying sandwich making.

    Or perhaps you just have very high sandwich standards?

    In legal terms it would depend whether you meant 30 days or calendar month. But you're an intelligent guy, so I know that you know that ;-) Most landlords here in the UK use calendar month for rentals etc.

Who can tell if my views are complete trolling, humorous exaggeration, or my true and geniune beliefs? Perhaps I even started out in one of the first two categories, but became the mask as the years went by...

My capstone project group is a bunch of morons. They weren't even randomly assigned, I just fucked up and picked a bunch of idiots whom I thought were smart.

Idea for a dystopian future scenario: a Democratic president extends the government's eminent domain powers to cover copyright. Then whenever someone writes a dissenting book or article, they seize the copyright and ban anyone from distributing the dissenting content.

    It would be interesting, but what other implications of this would there be? If its just Govt control of all media and books you have books like 1984 and farenheit 451?

    so you'd need to be producing an "updated 1984" which would be a horrible tagline to try to live up to!

    Just an interesting thought experiment into how a government could legally censor things.

    Alternatively, this power could be used for good, say, if God-Emperor Trump uses eminent domain to buy the major Fake News Media (CNN especially!) to stop them from constantly faking!
