You'll find a god in every golden cloister

But what the fuck do we do? Write our elected officials, send money to charities helping these families. Even hold a sign at a protest. I mean I don’t know. I’m doing it all but sometimes it feels so futile.

Trump supporters are people who feel they are owed something, but they can’t tell you what or why - whose greatest perceived enemy is people who they feel are getting something they’re not, but they can’t tell you what or why.

"When you are accustomed to privilege, equality can fell like oppression."

I do. My issue is that I don't really see how to be effective. Everyone talks politics in their daily life. But I think what you mean is donating time to actually advancing a cause. I've been looking for a way to do that but the only option to me appears to be to volunteer for the local liberal politician who is likely going to win in my liberal region so I can go door to door talking about how they've got great policies to solve the community's "kitchen table" problems.

The problem is that the problems we are facing are not kitchen table problems. These are national-level issues that don't easily tie in with anyone's paycheck. The right has been able to organize a cultural movement because they're more homogenous. The left doesn't have an appropriate response for it.

Nobody wants to hold Democrats accountable for their failings and look at why Hillary actually lost

There has probably been more deep analysis in the media and discussion of this amongst regular party voters than any candidate loss in history, and I mean that literally. Why anyone would think this hasn't been discussed to death at this point is beyond me.

I just wish they were accomplishing something with that computing besides making a coin. If the mining was doing some scientific research or something like that, I'd feel a lot better about it.

"The best chess player in the world today is not an AI. It’s not a human. It’s a human plus AI, which they call a centaur. The best medical diagnostician in the world is not Watson Health, the medical AI. It’s not a human doctor. It’s doctors plus AI. Centaurs work because they’re a complimentary team. We’re going to see more of that, where the AI does things that can be measured in productivity and we do things that are measured in exploration, interaction, and experience."

I have the XL with the 2017 Daydream -- works great!

I haven't met any new babies with that name, and I'm not sure I even know how to pronounce it. Any ideas?

I actually don't think it would be to hard to make really (core mechanics). Was thinking about putting off my space game to make one.

Can't wait for today's installment of What a Day.

What 13 people is he even referencing here? Is that just an ominous sounding abstract nothing that he made up?

"Do you seriously think I would explain my master stroke to you if there were even the slightest possibility you could affect the outcome? I brought her in for questioning 10 months ago."

I definitely agree that being able to scope the conversation more tightly allows for a more productive discussion. I just think if they're going to root the talking points in Pinker's book it would be good to have someone else as a counterpoint or at least some other commentary since Lovett's largely in interviewer mode.

Yes, maybe George Lakoff as a counterpoint? I was not convinced in the rise of rationality in politics.

Of all the reboots that are being churned out these days, Captain Planet really needs one. People have got such chubbies for superheroes, might as well have one with a message.
