In my experience most lawyers are amoral creatures that are concerned with making money and little else. I'm sure there are exceptions, but that would seem to be the norm I have encountered.

I just think it's a pity to have someone so devoted to teaching critical thinking just to have the recipiants of this education end up as lawyers anyway.

.... what a waste

Amoral in what way? I understand you subscribe to the idea that the world came about by only natural processes and the physical world is all there is, that we are nothing more than random accidents and particles in motion following the laws of physics.

What is morality, in that context? How can one be judged for being without good morals in a world where existence is accidental and we are nothing more than chance molecular concoctions of function and order and life?

:)


I'd rather not go into extended personal examples here, but amoral as in valuing their own profits and lifestyle over the welfare of my children. Being willing to actvely fabricate evidence, facillitate dis-information, collude, accept bribes, pevert the course of justice.... you know, that sort of thing. There is nothing random about it, and when your children are being seriously abused and they are covering it up and laughing about it, because that suits their agendas, then it becomes very clear in an instant that it is utterly evil. Nothing makes me wan't to belive in religion more than the thought that these people might one day burn in hell. Lets talk about something else eh?

WOW

AMAZING!@@!@!@


Yeah, as a fan of both numbers and pretty things it's nice when they overlap. They are very nice fractal images you have posted. I'm genuinely happy this is bringing you joy.

I don't suppose in any of the stuff you've been listening to they mentioned what the square root of -1 is?
      .....I'm planning to personally quiz GOD about that one day. :critter:

.... and yes everywhere I put "speach" I should have written "speech".... where's that edit button gone lol

this author is also rapidly homophobic and thinks gay marriage with be the doom of society or some stupid ****.

So, what are his points that you disagree with, and what are your counterarguments?

You got a 1 week ban from Moderated Section of W2 Forum for breaking the rules of the Moderated Section forbidding obscene language, but you are most welcome to continue the topic in General Discussion.

I take it the "****" has replaced another word?

I would like to note that I disagree with this ban. MWR was engaging with and trying to express a vaild opinion on the topic, he wasn't just spamming abuse etc. It may be technically against the rules but the moderator should get a little bit of leeway as far as enforcing them goes.... we don't need to be too precious. Just my opinion, however I will support the moderators final decision.

At this point is should also be noted this I myself used some colorful language in a pervious post:

we should be teaching young people to differentiate between information, advertising, campaigning and straight-out bull****. I worry that the next generation may lose the ability to tell these apart.  :(

I noticed that I had written this in the moderated section after I posted it - wasn't really paying attention at the time, I was just thinking about the point I was trying to make. So apologies if I have offended anyone and perhaps I should also face similar action. Although like I say, I support the moderator's discression over the exact wording of the rules.




Quote from: marx was right on Today at 21:05:03

    >I don't think this speach is trying to talk anyone out of supporting the validity of any particular "ism"

    that's literally what it's doing.

this author is also rapidly homophobic and thinks gay marriage with be the doom of society or some stupid ****.

Well.

For the record:

- Personally I am not at all homophobic or rasict.

- I think you mean "rabidly"

- and most importantly: I think in this instance you are being pwnd by the homophobe because you are failing with the very point that he is making. You are failing to asses this speach on its merits and are instead judging it on your opinion of the author.

If, as you say, he actually is, in fact a homophobe who is trying to excuse racism then I think he is a complete pratt, but that is not what the above speach says.

Perhaps this is a clevery constructed segue for other objectionable opinions he is planning to introduce later. If that is true then I don't like that either, but no such opinions exist in the speach..... actually he is a lawyer so this is not hard to believe, but you should say that and not ascribe things to the speach that aren't there, if you do you are just falling into his trap and being pwnt. Sorry, but you can do better.

who else is disturbed at the education level in america where professors write like prepubescent fans of sam harris? of course, it's not just america, canada has that raging cultist lunatic jordan peterson.

I don't know anything at all about this guy apart from the quoted speach. Which I like. I think it's clearly not a thesis, or "writing" per se, but a speach intended to appeal to the minds of young students, hence the style. He might have a bunch of other opinions that I hate IDK.

As I read it, the point of it is to try to wean them off the social media driven mass political correctness whereby opinion is driven primarily by what statements attract the most comments/retweets and lead them back to deciding on their own judgements and values, by using their own reasoning.

I don't think this speach is trying to talk anyone out of supporting the validity of any particular "ism", just trying to get people to use their own brains to come to that conclusion. Social media driven ethics are a very dangerous thing, because already people are becoming very effective at mass-manipulation via troll farms etc.

Public opinion that is driven by mass-hysteria never ends well, we should be teaching young people to differentiate between information, advertising, campaigning and straight-out bull****. I worry that the next generation may lose the ability to tell these apart.  :(

It's a real pity he's teaching in a law school - what a waste.

@Lambchops Thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)

Can you explain what you mean by the above statement?

In my experience most lawyers are amoral creatures that are concerned with making money and little else. I'm sure there are exceptions, but that would seem to be the norm I have encountered.

I just think it's a pity to have someone so devoted to teaching critical thinking just to have the recipiants of this education end up as lawyers anyway.

.... what a waste

This guy is awesome. He's facing an uphill battle though. So many people don't want to think anymore, they google their opinions. It's a real pity he's teaching in a law school - what a waste.

I have to echo mousey in that I had just ? ? ? ? ? ? when I read your post.

And what's meap?


Oh lol sorry about that "meap" is a typo - meant to say "heap".


Fractals! Wow.

My brain just exploded.

If they hadn't wasted all the time in university science class promoting the lies of evolution, they might have had time to teach me about fractals and other things actually found in science, nature, or mathematics!


hmmm...

So fascinating. Thanks @Lambchops  for sharing this!!

I wanted to watch some videos on it to hear it explained and I found this one that I was amazed by, presented by Dr. Jason Lisle.


You're welcome. I don't have the bandwidth to watch youtube vids right now, but do keep in mind:

Yeah :)  they're nice, and they literally go on forever...  our human brains try to ascribe all sorts of meaning to them - flowers... galaxies... even the bhudda, but actually they're just numbers (and not even real numbers!), they don't really mean anything at all.


But they are very pretty.



A few people got a bit excited because they thought the top level looked a bit like the Bhudda if you turn it on its side, then folks just kind of let their imaginations run wild. Actually its just based on  Z = ZxZ+C, and if that is the meaning of life then life is a lot simpler than I thought it was.

Insanity lmao

How do you keep a straight face when you're petitioning the state supreme court for the right to destroy voting records 2 days before the election has been held? They're electronic records - they take up no space. What possible reason is there for wanting to make sure they will be destroyed?

How does everyone not just start lol right there in the court room?

Bahahahahaha America is just crazy sometimes....

I tried this solution:

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/398115-possible-fix-for-a-lot-of-users-lag-updated-tcp-affects-udp-packet-loss/

but seems it doesnt help at all


This fix is based on an interesting article. It is basically suggesting that the automatic reizing of buffers used to transmit network packets by the TCP services may be making them too small for large UDP packets, causing loss.

Apparantly the World of Tanks game designers have increased the size of UDP packets with their latest update which has made some of the packets larger than whatever the TCP service has set for the lower threshold for buffer size.

So when the game tries to trasmit large UDP packets, if the buffer has been decreased to a smaller size than the packet, it can't be transmitted.

This kind of arbitrary messing with stuff is annoying. It would appear to have appeared in later versions of windows - my own system doesn't have the referenced registry keys.

At a guess, it's probably not going to affect WC2 as it would be unlikely that such large packets would be being used, however this kind of interference is worth consideration.

I have to go out right now, but I might investigate this further later.
