    How do you argue with someone once they have attacked you personally vs. your ideas?

    When I know I'm right? Then generally... I'm less engaged tbh? Why does it matter so much that you convince them? I get super engaged in arguments if someone is pushing their beliefs on me, or if I'm not sure where I stand, but if I'm confident in my position I can let it go. Also, you've...

    How much smarter would you be if you went to library and read....

    The internet exists. Libraries are clumsy by comparison. Stuff like this does help, but there are diminishing returns. You're also not guaranteed to spend your time productively. School also doesn't really stop you if you're not invested in it. I used to read books under my desk during class...

    Prose debate (split from "The Single Flaw with Hard Determinism)

    I don't really want to get into an extensive quote war. I was trying to be honest and direct, it's obviously not working for me. I'll fuck off now.

    Prose debate (split from "The Single Flaw with Hard Determinism)

    I'm sure you know your drug situation better than I do. It is super weird how much you talk about drugs and your drug taking experiences if you don't do drugs often though. But whatever, I'm happy to be wrong. The mental health comment wasn't meant as an accusation. Most people here have poor...

    Prose debate (split from "The Single Flaw with Hard Determinism)

    I know I'm not the best person for you to hear this from, we tend not to get along, and historically we haven't treated each other with respect. I feel compelled to step in because I think Jansen has you mispegged, and is forcing you to defend against claims that, while not unfounded, are...

    Is self-discipline good or not

    I think it's important, and that (for me) aesthetic concerns tend to be more of a manifestation of imperfect self-discipline than a legitimate challenge. If you've chosen to be disciplined in working towards goals you have accepted, freedom is not an issue.

    Being Pedantic

    Pedantry is typically a losing social strat. It's self-defeating. It's usually seen as a weird dominance thing and people watching are more forgiving of the correctee than the corrector. If someone is incorrect about something and you want to bring their attention to it, phrase it as a...

    Why logical types have poor social skills although social stuff has a logical structure

    I don't disagree with anything stated in OP but also Explicit logic is a different cognitive system to the one we use for socialisation. To the extent people realise you're thinking in explicit terms about the subtle implicit complexity of socialisation, they'll tend to implicitly reject your...

    Why IQ does not matter as much as people think....

    I basically agree with OP, though it was a bit wordy. IQ is a good predictor of success (or is good for a psychological construct anyway). But for most of the conversations I see on the internet, it'd be better to ask "are you successful?" than ask someone their IQ. What you have done is...

    If you’re a colored guy with (a) non-colored girl(s) how many times have you heard the “negroes are 3/5ths of a man” comment?

    Last movie you watched

    What were your thoughts on the first two? I haven't seen the third, but I enjoyed the other two. Not because they were super deep or thought provoking, but because they knew what they were and concentrated on being exactly that. I can't remember either of them trying to be funny?

    Pokémon Yellow

    Nope. Pikachu is just the most popular point of reference in pokemon. I never played yellow (only the rich kids got that version, I was stuck with a second hand copy of blue during that period). Last one I played was emerald which I thought was a considerable improvement despite the lackluster...

    My low processing speeed index

    Is your eyes being blurry the same thing as processing speed? My vision isn't blurry, it just takes a little longer for me to register what's happening. It's not really noticeable until I'm forced to do complex reflexive actions. It'd be kinda funny if you've got a vision problem not a visual...

    Entry requirement for the job is lack of self-awareness. If an asshole thinks they're an asshole, they've just got edgy self-esteem issues in disguise. Change my mind.

    The degree to which one is selfish is an inherent characteristic that cannot be altered

    People do all the time. That doesn't mean you can. Childhood is almost necessarily a state of selfishness. Adulthood and the responsibility that comes with it usually means an adjustment. Also, a lot of the time when people are acting selfish it just means they've got other shit going on. If...

    But to call someone an ape is to place undue emphasis on their uncelebrated aspects, right?

    Are you responsible for infecting other people with a cold

    I work childcare, and almost never get sick. I'm no superhuman, I just use sanitiser whenever I move around, don't touch my face unless I've just used sanitiser, and don't do anything obviously stupid. I can't require other people to take responsibility for their sickness, because kids don't...

    Climate change and capitalism

    I basically agree. In theory government is supposed to be able to step in and adjust the capitalist system to prioritise certain things such as climate change (with a carbon credit system for instance). But government is corrupt and busy and subject to the whims of an uneducated population as...

    D&D 5e

    In the hard games I've played, usually there is a non-death cost to dying (unless the DM doesn't like you). Perma killing people requires some hoops jumping. You just have to go into debt to be resurrected which is then plot fodder for your next adventure. That character died three more times...

    I'm pretty excited. I know it's popular to hate on marvel movies for being repetitive etc., but I think there's a lot to be excited about too. They're frequently breaking new frontiers and setting standards for the genre - I'm amazed at how well they've done so far. Infinity War was a lot...

    D&D 5e

    "Hard" DMs are a different beast. I remember my first ever session rolling up a first level character, jumping into an eighth level campaign, and being nuked by an effectively global (and thus unavoidable) ice storm before my first encounter. No save against Six HP is not a survive good well...

    Determinism the end of morality and free will?

    This is already how I think about crime, and I believe it's the best way. We don't have access to the pure deterministic mechanisms, but we do have empirical data on what follows what and we should do our best to create the environment most conducive to reducing crime. Prison systems tend to...

    Ability to alter thoughts = Loss of Identity?

    Identity is only a useful concept. It doesn't hold up very well to theseusian deconstruction. The best I can come up with is that identity is one and the same if a later state is the direct result of former state, and believes itself to be the same state.

    Anything can be normalised, given time and saturation. I think it's fucked up, but not necessarily that wrong? So long as the created species doesn't experience the exploitation as suffering, I think you're mostly fine?

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Sci fi vs Fantasy

    I'm a fan of both, but they're both often limited. My favourite is where they sort of join in the middle? Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. I think I probably prefer fantasy over sci-fi, because it owns the fantastical element. With sci-fi (at least that...
