Re: Retirees, what do you do all day long?

Re: Polyamory Support Group

Very interesting discussion. Jordan Petersen asserts that monogamy has reduced violence in western society as compared to other societies. He says this is an 'obvious fact' and whilst he cites some kind of study which purports to demonstrate this, it seems a highly speculative claim at best. I don't...

I didn't quite like the subject of the first one, mostly because i was affraid it could get me in trouble, even if i think a lot of people would have enjoyed reading it.
Well I'm really curious about it now :)

"feeling too Protestant," as DD says
I'm curious as to how it's feels ?

I may have mentioned upthread but Plotinus's Enneads are worth reading. It was very influential on both Christian and Islamic mysticism.

Re: White Trash Book Smart

On a list of 149 countries‘ Gini indices (link to CIA World Factbook), the female dating economy is the 75th most unequal (think European Union). The male dating economy is the 8th most unequal (think Subsaharan failed state). Another study on Tinder showed that “the bottom 80% of men in terms of a...

Local dialects are dying. It used to be possible to tell which city someone lived in with a resolution of 25km. However, everybody is converging on "standard Danish". Copenhagenish as spoken on TV.
That's a shame, that doesn't seem to have happened here.

My Danish accent is frozen in anno 1999 or so, which my sister finds hilarious. If I speak Danish for a while, it affects my progress towards the "Standard American"-accent I'm trying to achieve.
Has Danish changed a lot in 20 years ?

Or put into revitalizing ocean travel: https://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2008/06/ocean-liners.html Yes I could definitely see that happening, especially with remote working the journey time might be less of an issue for some. 19th century steam ships would have done more to connect the world than avi...

Re: Day of Eight Billion

A lot of local resort areas in my region have seen a dramatic decline since my parents' generation since traveling internationally has become so affordable. I dream of a world where vacations are by car and bus to local lakes/mountains rather than flying to Florida/Colorado.* * = I'm aware that thi...

Re: White Trash Book Smart

The males of many species woo with bright plumage and song. Also, within the context of small community, the guy fronting the band playing at the only bar in town may project relative status/fame. haha, when I was much younger I used to attend such a music venue, you are absolutely right. Though th...

it has been because they assumed drugs were on offer in addition to sex. Projecting "I have drugs and am willing to share" might be more important than the quality of musicianship.
Yes indeed, though the sex is best avoided as in my experience they tend to be riddled.

Re: White Trash Book Smart

I find people have a tendency to do this with hunter gathers too. Ie, hunter gatherers were more violent than modern man, they were more peaceful, they had more sex, they had less sex, they had more genders, they had less genders, they lived to be 120 years old, they died at 30, etc. Yes I've defin...

Thus my wife wants sex 24/7 but has never worked a traditional job so I have always paid for all of her expenses in life literally since the day she turned 18 and we moved in together. If I were asexual I also would not have four children to feed right now. Being hyper sexual can be very expensive ...

Re: White Trash Book Smart

Women are more selective with their sexual partners than men, as they get pregnant and men obviously don't. Even with reliable contraception and reproductive rights, the same mammalian impulses tend to remain.

Regions where population decline leads to economic decline will also look somewhat different from regions where economic decline leads to population decline, such as in the Rust Belt. So much human made stuff just falling into disrepair. I think 3000 houses are scheduled for demolition in the next ...

It's impossible. There are some 4 babies being added for every second around the clock. So for milestones, it's just some random baby being designated for PR purposes.
Yes that's what I mean, I think it's nice thing to do even if it's obviously a random baby.

Have they identified the actual baby yet ? S/he should be given a special award. The earth's population has increased almost exactly by 75% since I was born. Clever people could work out my age from that information. The problem is that economic development leads to rapid reduction in family size, a...
