Obviously I'd prefer experiencing life to not-experiencing it. Life is great! Existing is great. I wouldn't want to lose like a third of my life.
That should be and I think it is the default position of most of humanity. I get how especially people suffering from clinical or even merely situational depression can feel differently and no one would describe me as being constantly cheerful, but conscious existence is miraculous and wonderful. I enjoy sleeping, but I'd be great with sleeping no more than an hour a day fully refreshed. The loss of consciousness comes all too quickly as is. No need to hasten it any sooner.

Would my p-zombie self be distractable by random bullshit? Because while by default I want to experience life, being able to check out and put my work on autopilot so it gets my full functional attention while the part of my brain that goes SQUIRREL! and peruses Grylliade takes a break... I could probably about quintuple my current free time.

Cynical answer; because most of them are above that cutoff and want the free stuff. It's why they group student debt on the grad and undergrad levels together. Otherwise it's a wildly different picture.

The reason it's derided as a right-wing talking point is that it is *not* universal benefits. It's like Christianity; it's a totalitarian worldview where anything not explicitly pro-christianity is, by definition, satanic. I see this as basic infighting on the left between Triangulating Clintonians and the traditional anti-capitalist left (for whom the mere existence of people who need means-tested assistance is evidence of needing Complete System Revolution).

I mean I've also seen UBI criticized as some sort of stalking horse WrongThink because it's shoveling money at a problem while preserving neoliberal power structures (or something something).

Some people are just never happy.

I got put into Twitter jail again. I told a certain head of state "If this is a witch hunt then when do we get to burn you at the stake?" It was obviously metaphorical speech, but they deemed it harassment.

I just got in trouble on Twitter yet again because I asked Trump if Biden's latest ad would give him a stroke.

I'm just trying to wrap my head around someone in 2019 having trouble with the image of a man or a woman owning any of those. They cook, and they like Star Wars stuff. Neither of these are particularly rare interests.

[wild-ass guess] Maybe it has something to do with, Le Creuset tends to be very expensive anyway, and I'm sure the Star Wars branding makes those models extra-expensive even by LC standards, and that's where the trouble comes in? Not, "I can't imagine why anyone would want these" but "... why anyone would want to pay so much for these."[/wild-ass guess]
