Fog and Mirrors has the potential to be a really good story, and I *know* I theoretically have enough free time to write it, but I spend all my free time on Reddit instead.

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.

    Well, at least you'll get leadership experience if none of them take the initiative.

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!

    Sounds like communist thought. #EachLifeMatters is more democratic and capitalist

I'm beginning to think I might be better off with a PhD than a master's.

    If you're enjoying learning, and its useful, a PHD is not going to be worse than a masters, Its just it might not be as good as a masters+a few years of experience in your target inustry

    So worst case your career ends up a year or two behind where It would've been. But you do get extra years of university.

    Also if the royals are not allowed to inherit wealth and privilege from their parents, how come other rich people can? I am in favour of 100% inheritance taxes.

    I'd propose that they get to keep any privately owned assets they may have, but they lose access to any Crown property, and of course be stripped of all political roles, ceremonial or otherwise. I'd even say a former royal could become head of state again, but they'd have to win an election for it.

    Income taxes should be 0% though, as the money was already taxed once.

The Demoncrats are the party of death, that's why so many dead people vote for them.
