    [–] "Guess What's Part of Life, Dipshit" AllMightyGuy 17 points ago in LateStageCapitalism

    So I decided to look up the actual reason they voted No against this, and at first it seemed totally fair. They point out a lot of the bill has nothing to do with providing food as a basic human right, and instead focuses on pesticide use, trade relations, and forcing obligations on countries that may not be able to afford it. However, further down the ugly truth actually shows.

    "Domestically, the United States pursues policies that promote access to food, and it is our objective to achieve a world where everyone has adequate access to food, but we do not treat the right to food as an enforceable obligation."

    Basically, "We understand that everyone has the right to get food, but it really isn't our problem if they can."

    Fucking evil shits. They could have just focused on voting no for the wording and other legitimate issues, but they had to show their true faces.

    Are people dressed in popular costumes considered confusing perspective now?

    [–] Should Parents Genetically Engineer their Children? AllMightyGuy 9 points ago in transhumanism

    The only problem with not setting boundaries on experimentation is it leaves the door open to do all sorts of crazy things under the guise of scientific advancement. The experimentation is fine if the test subject consents, but when you're experimenting on non-sentient things it becomes significantly more tricky. Unless you just want to live under a scientific dictatorship where everyone lives in fear of being chosen for horrific experiments in the name of science. Sure, it may lead to an eventual paradise, but it's more likely the powers that be would exclude themselves and their loved ones from said scientific research and eventually dehumanize those they research upon.

    It's just a generally bad idea to give science the okay go to do whatever they want, whenever they want. Much of history can attest to this.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I listened to a few songs from both artists, and Anathema is close, but its focus on lyrics and love doesn't really interest me. Leprous is definitely on the right track, but as you said, is quite a bit heavier than what I'm looking for.

    And also by the fact it's CGI.

    I think this is further evidence that the T-Rex probably looked like a giant chick.

    [–] This is how AI bias really happens and why it’s so hard to fix AllMightyGuy 1 points ago in singularity

    That's absolutely a fair point. I didn't touch on the why, just the results. It's up to us to read the results and interpret them in a logical way that explains them. But in the end, the results cannot be racist or biased. A fact, by definition, cannot be racist or biased. How we interpret it and the ways we use it can definitely be altered by bias though.

    [–] Regarding Liam Neeson and other people that have overcome prejudice AllMightyGuy 2 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Unfortunately this is the way the world works, and until humans can pull their collective heads out of their collective asses, I doubt it'll change.

    A bad person who, after many years of evil, sees the light and changes for the better: A hero.

    A good person who has a single moment of evil, and confesses it and asks for forgiveness: A pariah.

    A bad person who spends his life lieing, cheating, and bsing: Totally fine, unless he gets caught.

    A good person who is honest and ethical but makes a mistake and asks for forgiveness: Unacceptable, get rid of them.

    I really don't understand why this is such a hard concept for people to grasp. As much as many of us like to pretend that everyone is exactly the same, it just plain and simply isn't true.

    We may all be equal morally and ethically, but saying it's "Racist" or "Prejudice" to identify trends that relate to ethnicity, sex, age etc. Is absolute fucking madness.

    If an algorithm did a global study and found that people from Kenya aged 30 - 50 were on average the smartest people alive, guess what, that's the fucking truth of it. And those people should be identified and given the best possible education for the benefit of humanity as whole. Is it unfair to everyone who doesn't fit that bill? Maybe. Are there going to be people who are intelligent but not a 37yr old Kenyan? Definitely. Are there going to be really stupid 32yr old Kenyans? Absolutely. But the whole point is identifying the bell curve.

    Being offended at facts doesn't help, and the sooner everyone tells people who try to push total BS like this to fuck off, the better we'll all be.

    [–] This is messing with my head. AllMightyGuy 2 points ago in memes

    That's a philosophical question, not a scientific one. And philosophical questions can't be proven, that's the whole point. If you doubt the fact that events happen when you're not around to experience them, that means you doubt reality as a whole and there is absolutely nothing I can say to persuade you otherwise. That's an argument you need to have in your own mind.

    The most well known example of this is René Descartes saying "Cogito, ergo sum." Or "I think, therefor I am." Boiled down, he basically believed that literally nothing could be proven to exist except for his own thoughts. From there he logically concluded that everything else existed too, but only if it was being experienced.

    He eventually settled on the absolute existence of God, because he genuinely believed that if something wasn't being perceived, it would literally pop out of existence. And surely there were things out there that existed but weren't currently being perceived by humans.

    So you're one of those "If a tree falls in the forest and no one's around to hear it, it doesn't make a sound." People eh?

    Whew... thanks, I'll check them out on my drive today.

    Edit: I checked out Failure, and while they share several similarities with the examples I provided, they're significantly more metal than what I'm looking for, in this case.
