So if I invented cold fusion tomorrow (yeah I know), and tried to patent it, they could simply take it, then tell me that I am not allowed to divulge how it is done to anybody else.

But you'd tell other people anyway?
You better...

The real problem is when the people in power actually think that this is what the public wants. That's why we should have a system where you are promoted into a position of power not elected. That way the people who become leaders are the smart, savvy people and they can make contreversial decisions because they don't need a vote.

That would be a regression back into monarchy, a system which we've only just managed to escape from in recent times. I fail to see how that would help our current situation in any way at all.

But it wouldn't be hereditary and it would be a constitutional monarchy.

Corruption, stupidity and apathy go hand-in-hand-in-hand. When you have an uneducated, apathetic population its very easy for the government to begin a downward spiral ending in oppression, corruption and maybe (hopefully) revoloution.

The idiots should be allowed to speak, but their opinions should not be given any weight.  Of course, the news media caters to the people and the people like controversy.  Thus, those with loud, radical opinions on something they don't understand (the louder you scream, the less you understand) the more it's showed in the news.  The more it's showed in the news, the more it's assumed to be the majority and thus correct opinion.

And I didn't speak up, because I don't want my children seeing that.

Then they came for the television news
And I didn't speak up, because I don't watch television news.

Then they came for the newspapers
And I didn't speak up, because nobody told me.

Then they came for my rights
And by that time, there was no way left for me to speak up.



I'm against censorship of everything other than the big 2, Child Porn and How To Make A Bomb.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: U.S. Military - Terror

The only thing that the course of action outlined in the OP could do is ruin Americas international relations (because those are so good etc.) and screw over the army even harder.
In a war against terror you need to convince the terrorist's recruitment base (i.e. civillians in the conflict areas) to hate the terrorist more than they hate you. Making them scared of you only makes that harder, and once you start using flamethrowers on Bob Wallace from down the street, who they used to go to school with and occasionaly go around to his house for scrabble and some coffee (and isn't it a shame about his wife and did you hear they might be moving over to Fig Tree Pocket) its a good way to ensure they don't think favourably of you.
No army using a "fear campaign" has ever caused anything other than resentment in their occupational zone.


Also, why so 4chan?

The universe doesn't know anything if it's anything like what we see it as. inanimate objects do not think.

Proof?
Have you ever met a chair that could think?

Anything a flamethrower can do either a gas grenade/incendiary grenade or a shotgun can do better. And neither require you to lug around 10 litres of jet fuel.

Should the US Military just go ahead and call themselves the Wehrmacht, start up a special branch named the Schutzstaffel (abbreviated to SS) and build a brand new "training camp" named Auschwitz?
Fixed.
For the record,flamethrowers are fucking useless.

So once they are infesting the woods we should let them stay there maintaining their threat to our existence? Humans have never left a threat at our door when we had the power to force it into extinction.

No. When there are few left we should go out with intent to capture, not exterminate. Obviously, people in "zombie zones" should get government aid to ensure their safety. And if it turns out we can't help them then we go out with intent o extermnate.

I'd become a woman ASAP and get pregnant as many times as possible. I would abort every pregnancy as late as possible and keep the half-formed babies in jars. EVentually, when I had enough, I'd make a secret room with walls made of these. When my child was bad I'd send her into the room.

Okay. I have realised that my choice of the word "net" suffering was a poor one, as it applies to everything and that wasn't my intent. I am now editing the OP and title to reflect this.

50
People have been looking at abortion the wrong way,

This applies only to abortion, so you can take your "by your logic KILL FUCKING EVERYTHING" and leave.

In New Zealand you can legally own anything up to and including a Vulcan minigun. Yet New Zealand has the lowestnumber of gun crimes in relation to population. Clearly, guns and gun laws aren't the problem. The solution isn't more or less guns, it's a mor awesome country.

Reminds me of an episode of Boston Legal.

"Now, we all know that John was tragically murdered in the store robbery by thugs with assault rifles, BUT,
this wouldn't have happened if john had an assault rifeofhis own!"

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Suicide Clinics
« on: April 05, 2010, 05:24:08 AM »
This post applies only to emotinal faggotry suicide

Suicide is the cowards way out. Now, I think, if you want to have fun fine, go do it. What isn't fine is everybody sying O SO TRAGIK BAAAAWW! They killed themselves because they couldn't cope with life. Failure to cope with life is a failure. Failure is only tragic because it is an example of weakness. The only tragedy is that they were weak, not that they are dead.

53
Iím gonna say this really short.

People have been looking at abortion the wrong way, whether something is alive or not etc. etc.

What matters is immediate, predictable suffering i.e. the amount of suffering that the MOTHER and the CHILD will experience.

My comparison chart (all examples assume averages)


MOTHER:
CHOICE:
If mother CHOOSES to abort child: Suffering = obligatory levels
If mother CHOOSES to have child: Suffering = obligatory levels

FORCED:
If mother IS FORCED to abort child AGAINST HER WILL: Suffering = unnecessary levels
If mother IS FORCED to have child AGAINST HER WILL: Suffering = unnecessary levels
If mother IS FORCED to abort child but wanted to anyway: Suffering = obligatory levels
If mother IS FORCED to have child but wanted to anyway: Suffering = obligatory levels

CHILD/FETUS/WHATEVER:
DOES NOT HAVE BRAIN -> CANNOT SUFFER -> NO INSTANCES OF SUFFERING

SUMMARY:
CHOICE = No instances of unnecessary suffering 0/2
FORCED = Two instances of unnecessary suffering 2/4

Therefore, choice > force.

Edit: Changed "Net" to "immediate, predictable". Changed wording from MOTHER & CHILD to MOTHER and CHLD will experience.

There are many images of high-altitude planes. Probably more than there are of satellites.

How many dummy planes would there have to be??? All of those pilots are in on the conspiracy. Keep expanding it. Keep expanding it.
Good point. The cost of this conspiracy would be ridiculous so the chances of making a profit are poor. Think about it; bridge-builders, most of NASA, pilots etc.
Sorry I think I've derailed the debate.

Forget the NORAD point, go back to providing concrete evidence that the conspiracy exists.
No problem. It helped bring up a valid point, the cost.

'Gravity' is lower in the vortex. But apparently, it's only lower for mountains. People and helicopters still fall. Typical globularist fantasy.

Wrong. The mountains are magnetic and so is the ground. They repel each other and so the mountians get to hover. They are tethered in place by the vines. I think the magnetic rock is supposed to be really powerful but really short-range which is why the helicopters don't smack into the rock.

56
This all reminds me of a case in Australia where they found a baby's corpse. They took a guy to trial for it, lost, and he walked free. Two days later they matched the bite marks from the baby to the guy's teeth, proving he had done it without a shadow of a doubt, but he wasn't retried because of double jeopardy.

I think he was murdered though.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Illegal Immigrants
« on: January 11, 2010, 09:15:11 PM »
There is a perfect solution, just round up the illegal immigrants and criminals, send them in big boats so some far off land and turn it into a prison colony...

Oh wait, hang on...
You misunderstand. We aren't rounding them up and sending them away on boats, we're just turning their boats around and saying don't come back. Criminals get to go to jail as usual.

« on: January 11, 2010, 02:18:32 PM »
So you've managed to cite a rather weak analogy of what the Earth's curvature would be like, if the Earth were in fact round. How does that prove anything?

It proves (again) that 'look out your window' is not and argument or evidence.
It will look flat no matter what.

Also to Tom Bishop:

my father works for NORAD.  You are claiming that NORAD is a lie because they use satellite surveillance.

Prove to me that my father is a liar.

Let's not do that okay.
They could prove your father is a liar (if your father actually is) but then they'd need to stalk him and do things like that, which we all know isn't happening so they just gets another thing to comlain about (unreasonable/unfulfillable demands). But good point about NORAD.
