    It almost seems like a compliment to be assassinated considering this cast of greatness. John F. Kennedy John Lennon Martin Luther King Mahatma Gandhi* Robert Kennedy Abraham Lincoln I almost wouldn't mind being shot in the United States. In the US it seems to be a positive thing to be...

    Kill Yourself

    Most days I am disturbed when I see that on YouTube. I wonder about the ethical implications of such an invitation. If person A tells person B to kill himself (perhaps only via YouTube comment), and the latter actually does it that night, how (if at all) culpable is person A for person B's...

    The Bar is Called Heaven

    Are you happy? How often? To what extent? I would say that I generally sport a wry smile but, when I get depressed, I can become suicidally despondent. The latter happens less frequently nowadays. Anyway, I'm curious about the rest of you. What gets you off? Are pleasure and pain commensurate...

    The Welfare State

    Should aid to the lower classes be extinguished or severely lessened such that socio-economic inequalities would be sooner felt? Welfare doesn't even seem like a good solution to an imbalanced economic landscape. Presupposing entitlements aren't actually supported each year by taxes, aren't...

    Silicon-Based Alien Life

    Is silicon the second most probable predicate for alien life based on its chemical composition? Why might silicon be nearly or more probable than carbon? :confused: The bolded part in the second quote might be a few strikes against silicon. The Hollywood depiction of aliens, though, seems far...

    What's in a Word?

    Do you use the word "retarded" or the euphemism "special needs"? I guess the question presupposes you employ one or the other, but come on. :D Honestly, retarded is much more specific than special needs. To wit, special needs could mean autism, down syndrome, dyslexia, blindness, cystic...

    Enneagram theory?

    I'm not sure why the fuck this thread is arising right now but what MBTI type flavor do I give off. Yeah, that's right. Take a big whiff and aver an opinion. Some kinda NT? ESTP? I can take it. Maybe forgo some intellectualizing and just spit out what you feel. :phear:

    Is that really Si?

    Since reading Psychological Types, INTJ type descriptions, and Si overviews, I have been consistently flummoxed at MBTI's inability to explain how an INTJ (Ni-Te-Fi) could have an excellent memory. It's said by many experts offhandedly without really weighing the applicable cognitive functions...

    The Fallen Adymus

    The bullshit at the beginning basically sounded like MBTI fused with MOTIV but all right. After that it appeared as though some retarded sign language reader was stroking out. At one point Adymus says "forensic, irrefutable evidence" whatever the fuck that means. I'm mentally checked out of...

    This list is intended to be totally personal. That's my caveat, anyway, against any infighting or bitter debates.

    Spearman's hypothesis, g and explication of black/white IQ differences

    Perhaps, before we get started, I should elucidate three subtly disparate yet related definitions. Here we go: Spearman's g (general mental ability) is one's ability to understand and manipulate complexity; g is obliquely gauged by IQ tests, which are fallible predominately because they are...

    Anathem and Intellectuals
