I'm just not too sure about a 3 c world not without natural feedbacks im not as convinced that there is enough accessible fossil fuels to get to that level

NICK16_06 2 points

At 490 PPM in CO2 equivalents, we are on course of surpasing 2°C..

To quote:

As a result, emissions stayed near or just below worst-case pathway ranges (RCP 8.5). As of this year, the window for achieving the RCP 2.6 scenario — or the mildest and most optimistic warming scenario — appears to have closed.

We are realistically heading to a 3-4°C warmer world without natural feedbacks. If we add them we may very well be looking at 5-6°C warming, but we will be too busy being extinct to feel the impact of it, as even just 4°C can be enough to trigger our exitnction.

3 out of the top 5 have over 105 in TV, the other two have 103. Furthermore, 6 out of the top 10 have over 105 TV and none have under 102.8. If anything there is a relation between a high score and a high squad value.

The world will burn up in flames before the elites give out true forms of UBI and start socializing states.

So does it take literally herding them into bunkers and showing CGI footage of the Earth "literally on fire" to get them to do it without it? ;)

they may give out some form of basic income in the form of rations but in exchange of total submission to the authoritarian state

That contradicts both the U parts of UBI (Universal and Unconditional) and no, you don't get to do like someone else on this sub did and say that because we "legalized torture and wasted millions of dollars" over the word terrorist that those words wouldn't stop us

If you are so naive as to think that there is a future good enough to guarantee the elites will give us free money so we can keep the wheels of production and growth spinning, then you are beyond insane and any argument I can make will not change your mystical beliefs, because they are. UBI is basically a dream, just like colonizing Mars and pulling the CO2 out of the atmosphere.

As I said, and my belief still stands, societies that are wealthy enough will place some form of rations in exchange for work and copmpliance and dress it up as an UBI, as said countries descend into authoritharianism to keep anarchy at bay. Third world countries will just look a lot more like Venezuela and that is fact and I can tell you that because I live in one. Fun thing about futurists is that they are so caught up in their bubble of well being that they don't realize that 80% of the world is basically a big slum where people can't even get clean water, let alone fantasize about AI and graphene underpants that massage your testicles.

A. Should I be locked up for being beyond insane or am I a New-Ager with mystical beliefs? Make up your mind. ;)

B. I think the problem here is we both seem to be assuming the extreme of the other's beliefs (and, see I'm wiling to admit I am); you think my optimism looks like the elite just casually tossing handfuls of hundreds at the homeless out of pure altruism, perhaps out of a motorcar to a triumphant song like the end of an old-fashioned movie, and I'm willing to admit that at least to my literalist autistic brain, your pessimism looks to me like you think UBI would require so much submission to the State that they might as well not need it because when your citizenry consists of human-like robots programmed with "rightthink" and built after the State murders the rebellious masses to look like the exact image of them, they don't need income

Where's your evidence?

And should we all get everyone up to our level before anyone can advance? What are you doing, then? Or does your pessimism make you exempt?

Also, I wouldn't want graphene underpants that massage my testicles even if I had them, great job making the future sound frivolous

No, I am just saying that the elites have proven time and time again that they have no intention of sharing their wealth with the plebs. If anyhting they are hoarding it at an intensifying rate, so my belief of the future is that once things get rough enough all of them will vanish to their safehouses and leave us all to rot in a climate change-ridden and resource-depleted planet. My evidence is that wealth inequality has getting higher and has reached a 200 year record, that the rich are actually buying land in isolated places like New Zealand, but sadly it is just a prediction and I cannot offer concrete proof as I am not an elite.

And should we all get everyone up to our level before anyone can advance? What are you doing, then? Or does your pessimism make you exempt?

If you think there is enough energy to give the rest of the planet a western standard of living, and that the impact of such endeavor wouldn't push the earth's resource boundaries and CO2 emissions to ridiculous levels, then you are naively optimistic, again, or you simply haven't read enough. I am a third world citizen so I see the misery each day and I see nothing remotely resembling the future you all delusional people keep pretending is an universal truth.

great job making the future sound frivolous

And isn't it? Technology promises to connect people and yet it alienates them. Social media makes people aspire to be like celebrities that don't give a shit about them. The internet is a cold, impersonal space that is ruining people's social abilitities and leaving them starved for interaction. Technology is great at hiding the true cost of the progress of society as well. Agriculutre is frivolous thanks to modern industrial techniques, animal farming the same. Even war is now an impersonal matter, with all the drones and missiles exploding brown people from a computer screen in the Pentagon. Do you think that when everyone is hooked on a VR headset on a chair like the fat blobs from Wall-E, if we avoid utter destruction that is, that the future will somehow become a warm place where everyone suddenly finds meaning?

Then why are presidents required by the masses to be christian in the USA, for example?

Please tell me you're claiming the fact that we've never had a non-Christian one as some kind of victory/de facto rule because there is no actual rule and there can never be unless more damage is done to the constitution than already has been

NICK16_06 1 point

Do you not know how to read? First of all I am not claiming it as a victory, and I specifically said "by the masses" so I never implied there was a rule for it. Second of all, why the hell are you responding to my days old comments when the discussion has long died? Are you stalking me? Are you in love with me? Please fuck off.

NICK16_06 2 points

Hazard to Son and upgrade RLC to Arnautovic.

I would also switch DCL to a cheaper forward like Quaner to free up additional funds, since he won't play very much anymore. and you really don't need a third striker considering how consistently Vardy and Kane play. Maybe dropping DCL will give you enough funds to upgrade Vardy to Firmino?

NICK16_06 1 point

De Bruyne, Lingard and Duffy OR Son, Arnautovic and Maguire for my short term trasnfers?

Honestly, don't listen to these fucking idiots who tell you that in 20 years etc etc. You're doing the right thing by living the best life you can while you still can.

It's a good idea to save money and invest, but you'll never retire. There's no such thing as retirement.

Just keep maximizing your experience here, and fuck retirement.

Save money though, but don't expect to retire. Money is good, planning for a future that doesn't exist = foolish.

Also, don't just put all your eggs in fiat currency. There's certainly the possibility that fiat currency will not prove to be the best place to park your cash - consider alternatives very very strongly. Stocks are much better than cash. Cash (i.e., money in the bank, cash itself is actually very smart to have) by itself is for fools.

I'm no expert on the topic but that is one of the leading claims. The increased padding and equipment leads players to do riskier shit, leading to traumatic head and body hits. When you outfit someone like a tank they tend to think they are a tank.

So yeah, there is the logic behind it. Increased protection leads to riskier behavior.

NICK16_06 8 points

In some sports maybe, but remember that a majority of the sports out there are non-contact, so the claim is ridiculous. Just because Usain Bolt wore engineered shirts doesn't mean he went to headbutt a wall in some kind of indumentary-fueled frenzy.

I'm beginning to think that the minimum wage at least needs to stay where it is and stop increasing. We may even need to decrease it if it means more jobs will be created.

We need to get rid of this idea that its the government's job to force businesses to pay a "living wage." Those busboys that got fired are no longer making any wages. "Living wage" is a very subjective term- its not the government's job to ensure the people get to practice a certain standard of living.

Many people would be willing to work a minimum wage job and accept a lowered standard of living- like sharing an apartment or house. Instead- these people are unable to find work at all and end up on the streets.

I thought that was actually the job of the government.

Elchup15 -1 points

The government's job is to make sure people are not using force against one another, and to provide recourse if one does harm to another. My wage should be between me and my employer.

NICK16_06 3 points

So you support market anarchy... I believe the European model has proven to work best actually. Leaving businesses to decide what is best for the people leaves you with predatory practices like Walmart's and subhuman wages. Your limited view of what the government should do is basically the doctrine that got the planet to be run by corporations in the first place.

Deniers have to be the dumbest fuckheads on the planet

Personally i think that accolade belongs to the people causing the problem. Emitters. That us, the vast majority who say emissions are a problem and yet keep emitting Those asshat's could be reducing their emissions significantly and leading the way but instead they just keep their emissions high and blame others. They're like slave owners saying we should give up slaves.. but waiting for the people who don't want to give up slaves to go first and blaming them for their own inaction. I say they are all assholes ;)

"Troops" are huge emitters by their very actions, so fuck them as well :) that are deliberately helping destroy civilisation by their actions.

You clearly have no understanding of how stocks work. It reads there that it has risen 1000% in the last year. Even if it proved to be the worst failure in history, I am absolutely sure that it will not go back to below $1000, let alone $220. The craze that has occured recently was caused to my understanding because the bubble got so big that even the most common citizens were trying to get in, and they distorted the value and this allowed people that knew what they were doing to sell, which caused another chain reaction and a crisis. Will it continue to go down? Debatable, but what is clear to anyone that know how this things work, is that Bitcoin will not go down in flames for the foreseeable future.

I disagree. "Breathe us in" means people assmilating the government, either through propaganda and repression or literally by inhaling some kind of intoxicating agent.

"Break through the surface and breathe" is just a figure of speech for the character of the song enjoying his freedom from the simulation that the EP Trilogy seems to be set in, and while it may even be the same world from YZ, it doesn't automatically mean every use of the word breathe is going to be related.

For the context of the song, I even heard some people suggesting that breaking through the surface was a needle injecting heroin on a vein and the protagonist being able to breathe again after feeling the rush. I don't believe this to be the best interpretation, but it just goes on to show how ambiguous the lyrics are and how far fetched it is to relate both songs just based on a single word.

Seems like PIGs are pipeline-cleaners, but they might use more modern ones for electronic gauging of a pipeline.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigging

It's just a shame that these companies are so careless with basic infrastructure that should rarely ever have a fault, because there are many other pipelines (for example, the ones that deliver water to and from your house) that work just fine and go many years without having a major problem/failure.

NICK16_06 2 points

Damn, for a second I thought they actually put live pigs covered in sponges or something to clean the pipelines.
