Re: The You Game!

<'s house was built 30 years ago, and doesn't have a decent central heating system, and we usually don't run said system at night, so... That said, < probably got used to overusing the blanket lately, which is probably why it failed. :oops2: <'s electric blanket went up in flames recently... Well, ...

Re: Personality Disorder Quiz.

Screenshot_20201206-185208_Chrome~2.png I tried answering as honestly as I could but as I expected, I got very boring results. Maybe that in itself is telling of some psychological malfunction that blinds me to my own personality disorders :fou: I suppose I do agree with the results though, at leas...

Re: Your political compass (and other political quizzes)

Especially the top three axes which I don't have particularly strong opinions on. I might have to go through them again at some point with a little more thought put in and see...

Re: What are people's musical tastes here?

I've gone through a few phases of liking different genres which have all piled on top of each other over the years. I remember when I was younger I would listen to a mish mash of soundtracks from the videogames I played and whatever my family would listen to, which was usually stuff like The Beatles...

Re: Do you bother to complete a game at 100%?

That reminds me, I also 100%ed Jack & Daxter. Sometimes I find 100%ing a game satisfying in itself, but it would be nice if games gave you more rewards for putting in the extra effort. I guess some developers are afraid all their extra work will go unnoticed if it's locked behind a challenge tha...

Re: Vegetarianism and veganism, an urban trend?

Alright, I'll make a few closing statements. Sorry for misrepresenting your views, I think we just disagree on a few fundamentals so I was making some incorrect assumptions. Also I have a tendancy to go slightly off topic, so in the cases where you said "that wasn't my point", that's proba...

Re: Vegetarianism and veganism, an urban trend?

the part where you say why are they allowed not zs is shifting the topic completely. It's about OUR morals. that example you gave goes in direction of tu quo que fallacy or however to write it. I have to disagree with you there. The fact that other animals eat other animals is IMO the crux of the w...

Re: Politics - your views

Most of your criticism appear to be geared towards economic liberalism rather than capitalism, with a strong focus on inheritance, yet another practice that predates capitalism (and economic liberalism!) by millenia and can arguably be considered a wholly separate concept. Of course it's all intert...

Re: Vegetarianism and veganism, an urban trend?

Also, a central part of well being morals is the "being" part You can't *be" if you are dead so killing animals on a systematic farm level is just wrong regardless of them being happy before they get numb from medication and get slaughtered. These animals wouldn't "be" if f...

Re: Politics - your views

Just curious, can you elaborate on how this relates to capitalism (which is nothing but the private ownership of the means of production)? Of course the broad topic of capitalism isn't just the concept of ownership of private property/MoP, capitalism as a whole is the system we have today which nat...

Re: Vegetarianism and veganism, an urban trend?

Since quote is long I cut that part as you mentioned moral argument on the bases of "nature is good" However, this doesn't seem to be the most popular moral base. It's mostly "well being" that is aimed for. It only makes sense to aim for the well-being in the animals that we far...

Re: Vegetarianism and veganism, an urban trend?

When it comes to the moral side of meat-eating there are a huge number of angles at which you can view the topic and I think none them ultimately have any objectivity. I think appealing to nature has a number of problems, mainly because the popular definition of the word "natural" has beco...

Re: Politics - your views

I'm not very well versed in real-world politics, especially American politics, and I'm not so familiar with Biden. But I'm convinced that Trump is a mentalist. I'm sure he envies the power Putin has. Some people are attracted to the idea of having someone who's not a politician as a president but I ...
