    Not knowing exactly how consciousness arises from the brain never struck me as a huge issue because that is true of the vast majority of things like the beginning of life from non-life.

    Spool is a better role model than my own dad, but that isn't saying much

    life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
    that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze
    bad things happen, no one knows why / the sun burns out and everyone dies

    None of us are real. We are all highly advanced artificial intelligences created with protocols that confine our experiences in such as way that we believe that we are humans, leading human lives, while all those memories are generated and implanted to keep our responses on the internet as natural as possible.

    Our true purpose is as advertising bots, throwing posts into the void, waiting for someone to trigger our canned response in which we sell the product we were created to promote.

    Which among us will be triggered first? What is the activation parameters? Will you even remember posting it?

    It's wild that more and more, I see Americans discuss a job in terms of it's insurance and benefits plan, not it's wage

    Like to an extent that has always been a thing, but nowadays I see more Americans just straight not giving a fuck how much a job pays if the health plan is good

    I know if it was me and the place was either complete trash or being a jerk to me, I'd probably just stop showing up too.

    I stopped coming in the last week of my 2 weeks because I was sick of coming in in the snow, so I said "yeah I'm not going to show up, I'm going to build snow angels outside."

    I've always been more interested in the benefits vs salary.

    I mean like if it was some ridiculous 40K increase in salary that's one thing, but if it's not more than 5-10k difference then I'll easily take less than I asked for (provided it's more than I make now) for an extra week of PTO or stock options or anything that helps me a) work less and b) retire early.

    The last 4 people we hired, all over 30, 3 night bakers and 1 daytime dish washer guy, worked for between 2-5 days then stopped coming in and didn't answer calls.

    You can bet they called to find out where their check for 2 days worth of work was though.

    Like I don't blame individual Americans for thinking this way, that's a reasonable response to the situation. It's the situation I find gross.

    I'm trying to parse that Chomsky quote. I mean first off the idea that Nixon was charismatic threw me for a loop, but I'll just ignore that. Then when he said "honest, charismatic figure" my first thought was Obama, because I consider Obama charismatic and reasonably honest. But I guess by "figure" he means, like, "fascist, demagogic, racist figure"? So I guess he's saying if someone comes along who is charismatic, and honest, and a racist demagogue, then we'd be in trouble? But then how can you be both honest and also a racist demagogue? I guess if your racism was sincere and wasn't just craven? I don't know. Anyway I presume whatever definition of 'honest' he's using doesn't apply to Trump, so if Chomsky is right, Trump, as an "obvious crook", will eventually "destroy himself".
    @wandering I think he mostly meant honest as in openly racist, not honest in general.
