Feathercrown,

Just print more money! That’s never caused massive inflation before!

Feathercrown,

What’s funny is that we DO have access to fairly clean energy already! Nuclear and renewables (not as much solar, until we solve the rare earth metals problem) are pretty darn clean. I mean… have you looked up Thoroum reactors? Those things are really neat, much safer and better for the environment, etc., but came just a bit too late combined with the nuclear scare.

Feathercrown,

The next major goal is still overall energy-positive output, right? We’ve only breached the threshold of output > input naively, without considering any external energy costs. I hope we get there though, it would be very neat!

Feathercrown,

We did?? I thought it was just net energy gain from the impulse itself!

Feathercrown,

Today is jury selection, so they’ll be asking a lot of potential jurors about all the ways they could be biased or have a conflict of interest

We should do this with judges.

Feathercrown,

I’d fail 33. Is it like a mega crime to lie on that questionnaire?

Feathercrown,

The defendant’s ironclad case when jury nullification walks in the room

Or in this case, whatever the opposite of that is

Feathercrown,

That was part of it, but it also showed people like me who the average person (mostly from a particular political inclination) really is.

Feathercrown,

It’s just common sense.

It’s common sense that if you look like a boy and feel like a girl, making yourself closer to looking like a girl won’t help? How is that common sense at all?

Your concerns are valid but your conclusions don’t follow imo.

Feathercrown,

“Common sense” is for things that are obvious. This is heavily contested in that it’s obvious in opposing ways to different people, and as such isn’t really covered by common sense in a way which can be assumed to be correct.

Feathercrown,

We don’t need to follow anyone. We could just investigate this ourselves.

Feathercrown,

There’s a reason medical practice is heavily regulated. Many established medical practices should NOT simply be left to a doctor and their patient. See eg. unannounced pelvic examinations for anesthetized women. That practice has only recently been started to be regulated in some states. If the doctor’s patient is underage, parental rights precedent has a lot to say on the matter. If you’re of the belief that parents should have no rights at all over their children’s medical decisions-- In the simple case, how will children get vaccinated before they can give consent? In the extreme case, is assisted suicide on the table? Obviously that last one is a stretch, but it proves that (to most people) it’s not always as simple as it being between doctor and patient.

Feathercrown,

Ok, fair, but it’s not like Switzerland is the only authority on this topic. We should collaborate with other countries, but relying on only one for any given question would be foolish and corruptible.

Feathercrown,

Oops. Yeah, sounds like they have it pretty figured out.

Feathercrown,

They would just be a unilateral decision by the doctor.

True.

Sure, why not?

Well, you’re consistent, but I think you’ll find allowing assisted suicide for minors to be an incredibly unpopular opinion, and as such your overall argument is still not likely to be accepted at large.

Feathercrown,

I am curious how you’d deal with the ambiguity of contractions vs. ending single quotes. I guess that character between letters can be assumed to be part of the word, but not if it’s between a letter and a space, for example. If you ignore contractions, hyphenated words, and accented characters, you could just match on /[a-zA-Z]+/.

Feathercrown,

My confidence in my job security and general programming abilities has skyrocketed after visiting this thread

Senate Republicans furious over Trump trying to derail FISA bill (thehill.com)

Senate Republicans vented their frustration after former President Trump helped derail a compromise House bill to extend Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authority, sending lawmakers scrambling to find a Plan B to keep the nation’s intelligence agencies from losing their ability to spy on adversaries and...

Feathercrown,

What the fuck? Just ignore him. “President Trump”?? Not anymore!

Feathercrown,

I’m ootl what’d warren do

Feathercrown,

His name is Don Beyer, since nobody’s mentioned it yet. Seems like an upstanding dude!
