Re: Observations of the Random sort

BTW, in case it wasn't clear, the rest of the world regards you as being in terminal decline, and loathes you and your squandered advantages.

You'll never answer for this.

Reminder that you have created slave markets in the name of Samantha Power and HRC's "smart power at its best".

How did a nation of 350M contrive to run Hillary Clinton, the worst candidate in western history, in an election?

Re: Observations of the Random sort

Why doesn't your very stupid country have an effective movement against it's permanent war economy? You have been officially at war, and fucking up the world, for 16 years now. You employ millions of people just in redundant private intelligence companies that produce absolutely nothing of value. En...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

The biggest question of all is how did even moderate nationalism become completely taboo? Who decided that raising the incomes of billions of people worldwide was the moral imperative? Now that climate change is a reality, and mass immigration will result, who feels smug about that? Try to build a h...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

Sometimes I read about how enforcing immigration law in your country is a uniquely awful human rights offence, then I remember that you literally have an immigration lottery.

How did you become so very, very stupid?

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

In case I forgot to mention it, that's two and a half years of my life down the drain.

At least I got a decent patent out of it.

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

Anyway, I would really not like to have that kind of career set-back, and denial of my invention, because these assholes can't agree on sharing credit. The shitty thing is that the technology was invented by my boss, me, my two labmates, and my good friend who was formerly at the lab then the biotec...

I emailed my boss to be in China about it, and he replied "oh that is not unusual, people get very emotional over those big publications."

I was like "No, you don't understand, they are French!"

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

Rest of the second episode was good, but god damn that made me angry. I probably won't get my Nature Biotechnology paper because a feud has erupted between Insitut Pasteur and the biotech company, and that fuck was doing some fucking voodoo. What was he supposed to measure? What were the possible co...

Enjoying it but FFS, this guy was doing a Psychology PhD at Harvard in getting people to make photo collages. Come on! That's like a parody of pseudo-science.

Re: Inequality

It’s all houses. It’s people and their fucking houses. Yup. We're seeing the same thing play out in NZ. An entire economy massively distorted by pandering to home owners, and short-sighted approaches to urban growth. And BTW, our central bank issues a warning about this every six months, and I thin...

Re: Inequality

Why Has Regional Income Convergence in the U.S. Declined? The past thirty years have seen a dramatic decline in the rate of income convergence across states and in population flows to wealthy places. These changes coincide with (1) an increase in housing prices in productive areas, (2) a divergence...
