Looking back on it, there never was a time where OT wasn’t full of spam and trolling. That’s just how this forum is. If you can’t see it, it’s because you’re part of it. There’s nothing wrong with it either, it’s just that people grow up eventually. The only thing that people do that annoys me is complain about it, they weren’t any better when they were in the limelight.

Topic: Off-topic / You get one song.

Okay, so say for instance some random person locks you in a room. You don’t know why, but they do this. They give you the option to listen to one song on loop until they let you out; you don’t know how long you’ll be in there, but all you can do is listen to this song on repeat.

What song do you pick, and why?

I agree with the OP, and I have to say, children need to learn to respect authority and be willing to understand who holds power in an agreement.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Could the conspiracy theory of a second US Civil War be true?

Yes people always do bitch about who is leaving the country however the current government has staggeringly low approval ratings not seen and an extremely long time.

Yeah the Obama administration is the worst administration ever since George W Bush…

People always bitch about who’s in power and expect that those who lead the country should take away the need of any effort on the part of those who don’t. There’s just more people who are able to broadcast their griping more readily on the internet now days.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

You do know we take it very offensively when people call us drill sergeant’s, we are drill instructors

Maybe that’s true for the Marines, but I didn’t know that.

The term “drill sergeant” is for the less trained Army solders.

Well, that’s just like, not very nice, man. Also, we’re not melted bits of lead, we’re soldiers.

Marines are not soldiers, we are Marines.

Did I ever say you were?

It is a well known fact that most people who enter the Army cannot handle the Marine training. That’s why they choose the Army. ;)

Nah we join the Army because we believe in working smarter, not harder for the work that needs to be done for the country, but hey, you guys can keep doing what you’re doing.

I am retired, I earned the right to say what I want now.

Fair enough, but I’m surprised you lost the respect for what the military is about just by retiring, especially with the whole “Marine for life” thing.

It might even start as another civil war and then outside interests will get involved and all hell will break loose.

I’m sorry, but I just don’t see any domestic radical groups that have the backing to spawn a conflict of that nature any time soon.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

Perhaps the reason being is that I am retired after a long career that included active combat. If you want to get along with me, do not call me a drill sergeant and DO NOT call me a soldier. I was – and am – a Marine. For life.

Did I ever? Only a select few are qualified for the term “drill sergeant” and only the Army are soldiers.

What branch are you in? Never feel shitty about being enlisted. It is an honor to serve. I have no issues with you.

Army. But I always feel like the military as a whole is being disrespected when I see people try and use it in a political context. It’s usually a rewarding job for me, despite the demands, and despite when I see people misuse their service.

Also, Canadians pay less for their healthcare than Americans.

American hospitals are also on the forefront of medical research and experimentation. With that comes a large amount of FDA testing and R&D procedures. While Canadians have access to many of the same procedures, most of those undergo pilot programs with extensive testing that have to meet rigorous guidelines.

Also, doctors and healthcare administrators make very good wages here in the US.

I am not impersonating anyone, I am a combat veteran. And no, I will not show you my DD214. I do not have to prove anything to you.

If you’re not some half-assed impersonator/troll, then maybe you should try and remember that you’re not supposed to use the uniform to make political statements? Of course, if you’re a veteran I suppose nobody can tell you otherwise, but you sure do take a big old shit on 259 years of tradition.

There is nothing funny in regards to the war that is coming in the USA.

What war? I don’t see any war brewing.

Funny, I’m in the military and none of the people I serve with brag that shit up. The only ones who usually are the first to talk about their distinguished careers in service to their country are either Marines or people who never deployed. I’m not sure which you are, but either way you sure do make me feel shitty about being enlisted.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

Lol, you need to read more about history and training:

The usage of the “double tap” technique is for when assaulting through on downed/prone enemy troops when you’re assaulting through, not for an aimed attack on your opponent. Again, your trolling leaves something to be desired.

Everyone does have a great debt to combat veterans. Anyone who denies that is a fool.

I’m not going to disagree with you, but it’s shameful that you’re touting around this statement. This is why a lot of people have a bad impression about service members.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Forum needs a lesson on firearms. Here it is, Michael Brown related.

As a combat veteran, I am amused when liberal’s complain that Darren Wilson made the bad decision of where he decided to shoot the thug, Michael Brown after he was viciously attacked by him.

I, for one, find it offensive that you’re either trying to impersonate a former member of the armed forces, or at least use the military to promote your own political agenda…

I shoot 50 cal at my cabin. I train for the coming homeland war every 2 weeks for 1 day, with my family. So I think this forum needs a lesson from someone who is intimate with firearms.

Never mind, this is going to be funny.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

It’s clear you have never fired a firearm of any kind, and special forces are trained to double tap the enemy’s head.

Lol, you’ve been playing too many video games.

In theory that is the case however in practice the police force in question here is in contrast to the racial percentage of its community.

You have to remember that in most communities the police force only represent a fraction of the community, and furthermore now days many law enforcement agencies expect a college degree in criminal justice, something that is uncommon for most people who draw from the lower classes (i.e. racial/ethnic minorities). Some of my friends that are in that field who were expecting to get into some upper division of law enforcement (i.e. FBI or NSA or something) have told me that finding any job was difficult in their situation, this is beside the point however. I do have to wonder though, are you suggesting that we should make ethnic quotas a requirement for police forces to base their hiring on?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

Still, if an unarmed suspect is fleeing, why aim for the legs? (if all you’ve got on hand is one gun and no back-up) as opposed to the multiple head shots Michael Brown received?

I don’t know how law enforcement are trained on this issue, but in the military people are taught to aim center mass (i.e. make it a kill shot to the heart/lungs), taking a leg shot would be difficult, considering the range, speed, and frequency of how someone’s legs move. But again there’s always what-ifs and why-nots that can be addressed and are perfectly clear after the fact, but during a struggle or fight that’s not always so clairvoyant.

bq.Honestly, it would be pretty difficult to shoot somebody in the head multiple times ‘by mistake’, and that should have been taken into account during the legal proceedings.

Hence why I feel officer Wilson did indeed use excessive amounts of force, and I already said it really only takes one shot to win the argument. This being said, it’s not unplausible that “fight or flight” probably took over him as he saw Brown as a serious potential threat, and that got the adrenaline pumping hard enough that he wound up squeezing his trigger more than needed.

This brings up the question of not only race, but physical and mental health as a factor in the judgment of the legal system. That’s another discussion entirely, though.


I do have to say though, not all law enforcement officers are the same. Inside every uniform is a person and every person has different judgment; some are racist ass holes, some are too nice to give someone a speeding ticket. The one thing I’d like everyone to keep in mind though, is that police are a necessary facet in order to live in a safe and civil society.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

I think that Darren Wilson did use excessive force, however using his weapon was not unjustified. Maybe I’m an authoritarian ass hole, but the usage of firearms against a potential threat is within reason for a police officer. That being said, with our 20-20 hindsight, the Ferguson Police Department should’ve had more nonlethal modes of subduing threats available (i.e. TASERs and pepper spray). All things considered, he should have only shot once; I sincerely doubt that the conflict would’ve continued or escalated if Wilson would’ve only put one bullet in Michael Brown.

But, moral of the story is that you should never assault a police officer. I for one feel no pity for someone who does so having to feel the brunt of the law come down on them.

Topic: Serious Discussion / A Self-Modifiable Neuroprosthetic for Depression

The difference here is subtle but powerful; those antidepressants have to be in the system for 2-3 weeks before they produce a measurable difference. Then they stay at the same level, typically dampening emotional response.

Yes, there are potential side effects to any medical procedure or pharmaceutical substance. Are you saying that it’s better to go through a high-risk surgery than to simply take a pill? My point is that there’s no reason that any insurance company would pay many times as much to go to a neurologist to have an experimental procedure done that would only marginally make someone more functional than they would were they to use antidepressants or other mood-altering substances.

What I am proposing works differently; it’s not in effect 99% of the time. Only if the mood drops below at set point, ten seconds later the pump auto-activates and pumps the brain’s own neurotransmitters in, rather than an artificial neurostimulant, to accelerate recovery out of the low.

Out of curiosity, what advantages are there to signalling the release of your transmitters than to just release the stimulants? I mean, the only one I can think of is that you wouldn’t have to release as much from the pump, but again, I’m no neurologist.

But it means that the person isn’t taking antidepressants. Instead, the prosthetic intelligently takes note of when they are entering a fugue state and takes immediate action to bring them out of it; returning to dormancy until the next time their mood sours past whatever unacceptable point it has been set to.

I see the benefits, but in my opinion, I think it’d be safer to just keep with oral antidepressant medication. Unless the antidepressants in question are hindering an individual’s ability to function, or are having negative side effects with other medication they may be taking, I don’t see much problem with them being in an individual’s system.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Ebola

It should be possible to encode a strain of HIV to specifically target the protein chain of Ebola, that much of the concept is sound.

But does it have to be HIV? Why not any other virus?

Whatever it ends up looking like, it’ll be nothing like the original, and the act of inserting new code int othe genome has altered the way everything that was originally in there, now interacts.

Yeah, but I mean, ideally you’d be inserting code in between stop and start codons, so that you’re only really messing up non-coding DNA anyway, and you’re going to avoid causing frame-shift mutations as well, but I see your point.

You’ve changed all the internal coding in new, and pretty much random ways. You then fire it into a lab animal and see what it does.

It’s too bad that even selective splicing is random to all hell when it comes to even small sequences of DNA, like those in viruses. Ideally, you’ll have some idea of what proteins to make, but considering that protein folding is one of the biggest questions facing biochemistry at the moment, it’d be difficult to know how to properly code for these in a way that they’ll regularly be sequencing and folding the correct way.

You’ve created a new disease with if you’re lucky, HIV’s transmission methods. If you’re not lucky, horizontal gene transfer has occured, and either the HIV has some of Ebola’s characteristics, or Ebola has some of HIV’s…

That’s exactly why I don’t feel that HIV would be a good virus for these purposes. This new viral infection wouldn’t get rid of Ebola, but it would sure as hell create a public health risk.
