    I just wanna be flea from nonsense. Ah, the holiday weekend is almost here and gonna be screen free and out of cell range, so looks like I'll get my wish at least temporarily.
  2. Barbers are open again here. Just got back, but...

    Barbers are open again here. Just got back, but unfortunately I got exposed to a TV for the first time in about 3 months. Could not believe how bombastic the propaganda has become. You guys are...
  3. If they can't demonstrate cause and effect, until...

    If they can't demonstrate cause and effect, until they do, all we have is correlation and the possibility that something else is driving this. Colds cause cold symptoms, flus cause flu symptoms,...

    To paraphrase a friend who started a tech company that now has about 75 employees: We hire for spark and for personality because all the qualifications are commodities.

    Interesting animation of the data. If it's true and things are growing, then I guess it won't be long before we all will see it first-hand.

    What's obvious to me is there is a revolution...

    After well over 100 days of waiting to know someone who actually got sick from this most profoundly important disease of the last hundred years and still sitting here empty-handed, I wonder if this...

    Rolt was a wonderful writer. Trained as an engineer through hands-on apprenticeships in engine-building shops in England, he had the perfect background to write authoritatively on industrial...

    ***Few things could be more predictable than the responses of a "moderate" boomer, but Pete, being a boomer's boomer, is in a class all his own. I can only surmise those circuits are cooled with...

    When Western civilization has a 2000+ year history of using phonetic written languages and empirical knowledge of how to pass literacy down through the generations, it it not curious that suddenly...
  10. The idea that moderates fall somewhere between...

    The idea that moderates fall somewhere between conservatives and liberals, rather than being the foot-soldiers of the liberals is the result of liberal mind pollution. The goal of liberalism is to...

    College may have been a useful institution when perhaps 5% attended. At this point it's a contrary indicator. The colleges are actively engaging their destruction through SJW policy. At some...

    Patton was pretty interesting, but I don't think we'll get new statues after they've dug up quotes like these. Ah, to think we once had generals who wrote diary entries that sound like Mencken...

    Pete, that's a very dishonest response.

    1. There is a key distinction between individuals and groups. Here's your sleight of hand: you took my argument about groups, shifted it into into one...

    (a) Nope
    (b) mixed. Seems to correlate strongly with how much people are down with BLM.
  15. Oh wow, a black guy raised chickens that laid...

    Oh wow, a black guy raised chickens that laid great eggs and you ate them. That is an amazing and totally not condescending anecdote. Especially the part about him being black. Because if he...
  16. Because doing more of the same thing that hasn't...

    Because doing more of the same thing that hasn't worked so far is going to work so much better this time. I guess that's the burden you have to bear for being one of those serious responsible people.
  17. There's nothing to argue with inside a truism. ...

    There's nothing to argue with inside a truism. We're being told the problem is widespread inequality, but since human ability is unevenly distributed, then when you average over different groups,...
  18. If you take the lower end of that range and still...

    If you take the lower end of that range and still have a 15-point standard deviation, then this would mean that the average person today is smarter than 91% of people in 1950. Does that even seem...
  19. If you believe the studies, Ashkenazi Jews have...

    If you believe the studies, Ashkenazi Jews have average IQ in the ballpark of 110, which is about 2/3 std deviation above the western-european white average. That + culture leads to a shitload of...
  20. I've never figured it out, but it seems to work...

    I've never figured it out, but it seems to work like this:

    1. Jews are hugely overrepresented in positions of power because they're smart and work hard. Whites are somewhat overrepresented in...

    The US would be far better off if it had policies like Israel's to protect the borders and integrity of the nation. Funny how Israel is allowed to do whatever the hell they want, but if any western...

    It's not clear what IQ measures, but whatever it is, it's highly correlated with ability to do tasks that involve abstract thought. Idea stuff. Blacks aren't upset that they can't get shitty...

    Let's think about that for a minute. There are lots of IQ tests and noise in the data, but you can look up for yourself the average IQs for various professions and see the trends. Here are a few...

    We're living in a civilization where IQ matters. Technology is built with abstract thinking. Whatever IQ is, and I know it's controversial, it's massively statistically significant. Estimates on...
