i went to a substantial amount of effort this morning to fight my way past a severe psychological episode so that i could go vote, because i knew i would feel even worse later if i didn't

gently caress these people

It's the most pungent kind of libertarian intellectual masturbation. Disguising their lazyness and unwillingness to actually fight for the change in the status quo (because for all their bitching they always have cushy lives and fygm, poors and minorities) as their 'moral objection' to a 'corrupt system', and all the worthless delusions of grand conspiracies and the coming revolution etc. etc.

It's really just like a whole bunch of college communists, except usually a little shittier because of the naked contempt for the less fortunate. Same bullshit utopianism and nebulous revolution crap though.

The Iron Ring is a ring worn by many Canadian-trained engineers, as a symbol and reminder of the obligations and ethics associated with their profession.

Specifically, once upon a time an engineer didn't take his responsibilities seriously, okayed a shitastic bridge and got a bunch of people killed. According to the tradition, the professional engineers of the time decided it was a sign that a more formal oath of practice was needed and took some of the iron nuts from the wreckage as rings to mark the responsibility engineering has to make sure things are safe.

they need a ring to remind them of their "one job" I guess

it's mostly that Canada used to be and still is full of really shady people, as the British had yet to develop scammer tags.

(I also think it ties into when legislation officially made it the engineer's fault if people died because of his/her negligence)

why would you host anything illegal in countries where interpol or the fbi hold sway, or anywhere willing to work with them

How many of those are there anyway? Like I know some places are a bit chilly vis a vis US relations but short of embargoed regimes like NK or Iran are there a lot of countries out there who would actively oppose FBI investigation just for the sake of it (in particular for poo poo like illicit child porn sites being run by Americans)?

ostensibly that is why money was developed but it came more organically out of people realizing that if you bartered for things the rich and powerful liked, ypu could trade that to almost anyone

then people realized the value of counterfeiting, then the value of providing a guarantee against counterfeiting, ans etc. etc.

I hate how they assume the only reason gold was chosen as money was because it was rare. It's that rich people loved it to make poo poo out of it, that's why it becomes a reliable barter unit

Mr. Nice! posted:

gold wasn't even the first currency. clay tablets stamped with poo poo were the first.

That's true; abstractions of value like that do go back crazy far, which makes their anger against fiat currency even funnier. Just in the European context, gold wasn't picked through some rational study or something, it ties directly to the value those in power accorded to it. That's what always defines money, something you don't use yourself but you know for a fact a rich/powerful person will trade you for.

Decentralization value simply can't work the way they think it does. that's why tgey end up saying stupid poo poo like 'water has no value'

self driving cars are the dumbest loving theing and much like bitcoin introduce way more problems than the non issue it tries to solve

Actually, if you could get all the vehicles on the road to be self operating and coordinate with each other we could have much higher speeds on highways and more efficient flow during high traffic volumes. This does require a centrally managed system with set standards and monitoring though, so the opposite of what is happening with Google
