    [–] Damn, i never thought about that lll_lll_lll 3 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    The indigenous Taino people intermarried with Africans arriving as slaves in the Caribbean? What would prevent the same thing happening in America?

    [–] Another way of threading a needle lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in lifehacks

    I’m 37? Really don’t think I will see the difference in a few years but thanks.

    [–] Another way of threading a needle lll_lll_lll 0 points ago in lifehacks

    But like... sewing requires putting the needle in a specific place. The same way threading a needle does. I just don’t see how someone could do one and not the other. At least for a giant needle eye like this.

    [–] Another way of threading a needle lll_lll_lll 0 points ago in lifehacks

    Then how do you see up close to proceed to sew once the needle is threaded?

    Also, don’t you have to see up close to get the needle over the thread on the toothbrush?

    I thought the “hack” was supposed to be more for people who can see but don’t have finger dexterity.

    Seems like a catch 22. How can you have the dexterity to sew by hand if you don’t have the dexterity to thread a needle with a giant eye?

    [–] "We find no relationship between immigration and terrorism, whether measured by the number of attacks or victims, in destination countries... These results hold for immigrants from both Muslim majority and conflict-torn countries of origin." lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in science

    Let me guess... you are the type of person to refer to Mexicans who enter the US and overstay visas as “undocumented immigrants.” Or do you insist on calling them illegal aliens, since they haven’t been through any formal immigration proceedings?

    You haven’t demonstrated that the meaning of immigrant is as specific as you would it to be. You just feel that it is.

    They were here over a year. If you want to limit the scope of immigration to only include “people who are here for nice reasons” then I suppose you will probably have low levels of terrorism among them.

    But it is a pretty meaningless exercise to limit the definition to people who don’t mean you any harm when you have other people coming over who do mean you harm.

    [–] Police use-of-force is the 6th leading cause of death among men age 25-29 in the US. Researchers used data compiled by the National Vital Statistic System’s mortality files and Fatal Encounters to create one of the few comprehensive baseline estimates for how often Americans are killed by police. lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in science

    To say black that men and First Nation people are disproportionately targeted begs the question: Do they commit violent crime disproportionately? If so, then they are naturally going to have more police interactions.

    In the US, a black man is 4 times more likely than a white man to be killed by police, but 7 times more likely to commit violent crime themselves. I’m not sure if there are similar numbers in Canada.

    [–] Painting Restoration done right lll_lll_lll -3 points ago in oddlysatisfying

    They still look bad. Saying that it creates the “best viewing experience” is subjective. I would feel that the clashing styles look worse than if they were simply gold.

    [–] How did such creative torture methods develop? lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in history

    Torture is wasting money? Interesting take.

    [–] A $5,000,000 oops lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in WTF

    If a mobile MRI including tech only costs a couple thousand a day, why does it cost $1200 or so for a single MRI? Couldn’t they do at least 10 per day, netting at least 10k per day? What is stopping people from doing this?

    [–] What are the pros and cons of taxing capital gains as ordinary income? lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in NeutralPolitics

    I totally get what you are saying that capital gains tax ought to be equal to income tax, but this begs the question:

    Why should capital gains be raised rather than income tax lowered?

    Do you not feel that our government is incompetent and corrupt, and that the less money we give them to waste the better?
