Topic: Off-topic / Do you think Teleporters will be invented before you die?

Originally posted by TakeMeSeriousl:

I love Sci-fi but to be honest, I highly doubt teleportation would happen in my lifetime.

If you asked young people on the day the Wright brothers were born, “Do you think a flying machine will exist in your lifetime?” a lot would probably say no. Technology develops incredibly fast.

I’ve heard that being burned alive is painful.
Your skin can boil and melt whilst you are alive. Doesn’t sound good.

If you’re lucky, you’ll go unconscious from the smoke.

wouldnt it burn off your nerve endings?

Eventually yes. But not immediately.

Bronze Bull, ’nuff said.

That though, would not burn your nerve endings. That would be a lot worse than simply being on fire.

Often, violent criminals are identified as sociopaths. This does not mean that sociopaths always become criminals, but many criminals are sociopaths.

A lot of those don’t need to be there. The only real necessities are food and shelter.

Well who bought it then?

My fathers because they wanted me to have “Teenager boy” stuff in my room.

Yes I do not know either I never asked for a poster off some random anime girl in a bikini at least if it was from some series I know it would be sligthly better I mean it makes no sense anyway, not to mention it clashes horribly with the other 2 posters.

You never bothered to find out what the bikini girl was from? Eh who cares, as long as you enjoy fapping to it.

What the hell? O_o

Well that was unexpected…

But no lol why would I fap to that when I have the internet… Ok that was extremely weird to say. But yeah.

Again, at least if it was from some series I know, I would actually like the poster, but noooo….

Maybe find out the series and watch it?

No, a lot of people here are students. There’s nothing wrong with talking about our studies. Maybe you just don’t understand our desire to become educated and productive members of society.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Modern economic theory

Let me start with a story I found.


An American investment banker was taking a much-needed vacation in a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. The boat had several large, fresh fish in it.

The investment banker was impressed by the quality of the fish and asked the Mexican how long it took to catch them.

The Mexican replied, “Only a little while.”

The banker then asked why he didn’t stay out longer and catch more fish?

The Mexican fisherman replied he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs.

The American then asked “But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

The Mexican fisherman replied, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos: I have a full and busy life, señor.”

The investment banker scoffed, “I am an Ivy League MBA, and I could help you. You could spend more time fishing and with the proceeds buy a bigger boat, and with the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats until eventually you would have a whole fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to the middleman you could sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You could control the product, processing and distribution.”

Then he added, “Of course, you would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City where you would run your growing enterprise.”

The Mexican fisherman asked, “But señor, how long will this all take?”

To which the American replied, “15-20 years.”

“But what then?” asked the Mexican.

The American laughed and said, “That’s the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich. You could make millions.”

“Millions, señor? Then what?”

To which the investment banker replied, “Then you would retire. You could move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”


What do you think? What are your thoughts on how people think about money? Different societies have different economic values, but do you think there is a “best” way of thinking about the economy? Is a complex, industrialized economy “better” than an simple one that just gives people their day to day needs?

Topic: Off-topic / Are all men really created equal?

People are created equal in the sense that we are all humans and as humans, we all share certain defining characteristics that distinguish humans from other life forms. But we also all have subtle differences that make each person unique.

In all seriousness though, it’s probably better to train them to defend their own land than to invade with our own soldiers.

Your sarcasm is bad, let me show you some proper sarcasm:

You’ve got it all wrong! Why send American soldiers to die fighting ISIS when we can have the Arabs die doing it for us instead?

I think he’s saying that he believes Jesus existed, but that he wasn’t the son of God, or a prophet, or of any other holy significance, and that stories of him are exaggerated.

Topic: Off-topic / Would this be better?

In most capitalist economies, the majority of workers are paid based on the time they spend working. Do you think it would be better to pay people based on the amount of work completed, rather than the time spent working?

Discuss.

A measure to stop terrorism is definitely needed, but the Patriot Act was very inefficient.
