So, the college I’m at had the Pro-life people pay a visit, and that apparently started a protest. So this made me think about the issue. Now, since I am neither female nor pregnant, I would like to make it clear that I am not telling anyone who is whether or not to have an…

Sorry for the long wait… I just <inserts usual excuses>. Actually I happen to be on vacation in Portland. I have been spending quite a bit of time recently trying to “learn CS5″ with limited success… I dislike e-books. I learned about flex because it came with CS5 (ouch). I have tried the learn flex…

Sustainable Economics

May 31, 2010 - 10:34 pm

Ha, how can can I talk about sustainability when I don’t have sustainable blogging practices. Sorry, I’ve been rather tied up with school recently. What ends up happening is I totally slack off on the weekends to balance all the work it seems I’ve done. I am concerned that I might well be repeating myself…

Voluntary Human Extinction Movement – right on. I’ve been browsing this website, and I watched the long, thought-provoking video at the bottom. One thing that caught my attention is when they say you’d have to be naive in order to take it seriously. I went, wait what? World’s problems are serious. The church of Euthanasia…

Where Science Breaks Down

April 27, 2010 - 3:33 am

I recently spotted a book titled “The Trouble with Physics” and it reminded me of some trouble with physics of my own. Our physics has come a long way since the days of Newtonian mechanics – we’re now working on “string theory” and the book (seems to) analyze string theory and poke holes in it.…

Race 2

April 13, 2010 - 5:34 pm

In the previous post, I talked about how racism and race distinction makes no sense. What I mean is that no “race” or whatever is genetically superior, as superiority is a floating term, one that can have whatever meaning you find convenient. But they are different. I recently came across the notion that the most…

Caring for the Environment

April 9, 2010 - 9:37 am

I haven’t encountered anyone with this opinion, but I am curious if anyone thinks that caring for the environment is retarded, as if it were a kind of charity to small woodland creatures. The woodland creatures can take care of themselves as long as we let them. Caring for the environment is not charity. It’s…

Talking about race is racist. There are no races, only stereotypes to be proven wrong. We should not be fighting for racial equality but for making the concept obsolete. If an organization hand-picks its members based purely on their qualifications, and the races are not distributed according to the population’s demographics, this signifies something about…

Society of Fail

October 24, 2009 - 7:49 pm

Today, I read an article in the news about Microsoft entering financial trouble. This got me thinking about our so-called recession. Businesses are a major part in Microsoft’s revenue, and they are apparently hesitating about upgrading their equipment, which is causing some grief. But, the recession is recursive in a way. People stop buying as…

Utopia 3

October 16, 2009 - 1:24 pm

In my last "Utopia" post I discuss the pitfalls of democracy and suggested a form of constitutional monarchy. I came up with another idea "Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried." -Winston Churchill Since it is so difficult to determine the best government, I thought of…
