    I have narrowed the list of murder suspects down considerably already!

    So, you figured out there were some riddles, went back and solved a whole bunch, many of you have points, and we're back to page 95. How cool.

    Now that everyone knows the score, it's time to start playing with those points a little. When attempting to answer a question, you can gamble your points; however many of them you wish. You must have some points to do this, of course. End your answer with "I put [x] points on it" or some slight variation thereof, and you're on. If you are correct, you get double those points back +1. So if you had 2 points, gambled them on a correct answer, you would have 5 points. The thread would also go up by 2 pages instead of 1. If your answer is incorrect you lose your points, and the thread also loses 2 pages. There can only be one active bid per unique answer. There can be multiple active bids, as long as they have different answers. If the first answer to the question has no bid that answer will be taken, and any subsequent bid ignored. Good luck!

    I want to cuddle with someone

    You okay with it being like a three person thing

    Except the other person probably will have zero interest in touching you because they are very shy

    We can still make that arrangement work though

    So it seems banks are willing to lend me a very large amount for a mortgage. But I don't see why as the repayments at the upper end would cripple me.

    There were also no consequences then. Now that there are, we just gotta confer like we're on Double Dare or somethin.

    Large scale, high quality automation replacing more and more jobs seems inevitable, meaning more money for owners of capital and fewer jobs (or wages plummeting to make inferior human workers a viable alternative to drones and AIs).

    The obvious answer as we gain more and more from automation is a guaranteed minimum income, and other essentially socialist programs that rise in quality as more tax revenue comes in from automated labour (e.g. free education for all, making it easier to get those jobs still beyond automation).

    But it also seems inevitable that owners of capital will be reluctant to relinquish their horde of wealth, at least in nations like America, and are infinitely capable of rationalizing their wealth share, the suffering of others, etc

    It seems impossible for there to be a switch to automation without some discontent and disruption.

    Will there be an ideological shift toward wealth redistribution? Will there be an enormous class conflict that leads to political change? Will there be enough dissatisfaction with stagnation that violence will ensue, and if so, will the centralization of wealth and technology also mean a centralization of power significant enough to create a dystopian cyberpunk plutocracy? Would other nations achieve a technosocialist utopia and intervene? Would America's automated military might render it immune to intervention? Are we going to be able to get robot hands? I'd love some robot hands.

    the obvious answer is not to violently overthrow the rich or become owners of the automatons themselves but

    but

    to become but humble wage slaves maintaining the automatons

    maybe we learn a little programming at night

    specifically, how to make them eat the rich

    then we find all the robots guilty

    and when they come to eat us, we reprogram them
