    There's a fundamental problem with cars.
    It isn't the cars.Β  It is the driving.Β  If you want to improve the CO2 problem, you stop people using the things, not owning the things.
    [I'd say everyone should be able to have a car -- personal mobility is great, from moving stuff to the tip to visiting relatives.Β  The problem is people keep on using them too much.Β  To blame the cars and not the usage is a real wood / trees issue]
    [the other problem is too many people using their cars too much -- but the 'too many people' is a deeper problem]

    Tiny house/flat to live in (or share), commute by bus to job that you'll be working in until your 75, in a country where it rains alot.
    Well it's good news for antidepressant manufacturers anyway

    We all know many people who can't afford to buy a house and I've noted that I know a small number of lower paid people who can't afford to run a car.
    I have said that anyone who thinks that we will switch all cars to EVs whilst retaining existing levels of car ownership is highly deluded.
    Well this is the first time that I have seen the government explicitly come out and confirm that this is the aim.Β  They will now price people out of cars.
    This isn't by the way a random "think tank"; this is the Science and Technology Select Committee which consists of MPs:
    Member Party Norman Lamb (Chair) Liberal Democrat Vicky Ford Conservative Bill Grant Conservative Mr Sam Gyimah Conservative Darren Jones Labour Liz Kendall Labour Stephen Metcalfe Conservative Carol Monaghan Scottish National Party Damien Moore Conservative Graham Stringer Labour Martin Whitfield Labour Β 
    And they have now stated very clearly:
    β€œIn the long-term, widespread personal vehicle ownership does not appear to be compatible with significant decarbonisation.”

    So there you have it.
    Your children will not be able to buy a house.
    Your grandchildren will not be able to buy a car.
    Rich people only.

    The USA has bought pieces of land in the past e.g. Alaska. Trump mentioned it, got batted away by the Danish PM, and that should have been the end of it. Instead, his cancelling his trip makes him look childish and petulant. He's going to have trouble explaining his behaviour IMO.

    I remember watching a TV program in the early 90's where they went online and I thought it looked cool. I phoned up directory enquires to ask for the number for 'the internet'. They told me they'd heard of it but couldn't find a number heheh.

    I haven't got time for that shit. I grew tired of the whole thing not long after the Kavanaugh testimony.Β 
    It's like some religious crap. "Trust the plan", "drink some more Kool-Aid", "these people are stupid", "chaos in Washington", "oh, he wasn't supposed to die. Errrm", "we're going to build a wall (at some point. Maybe next decade?)"
    The world is just divided and fucking mental on both sides.Β

    The Generation Game πŸ™Œ reacted to Austin Allegro in Deluded Old Scrapper Birds On Dating Sites   
    True but I think many women delude themselves that they have entered into a relationship by having sex with a man, when he is just there for a one night stand/pump and dump.
    I estimate that about 25-50% of womens' profiles on Tinder lead with phrases like 'I am not here for ONS' 'Not here for casual sex', 'looking for a relationship not FWB' etc.
    Now, this could just be because men bombard them with d*ck pics and offers of sex. But it could also be because they have had too many experiences of jumping into bed with Chad thinking it's the beginning of a beautiful relationship, only to have him disappear the next day.
    The no sex before marriage rule, which most of western civilization practiced for hundreds of years, was good for men because it ensured his children were his and that his wife was disease-free but it was also good for women in that it required a man to maintain and support a woman in a life-long relationship in order to have exclusive sexual contact with her. Feminism with technology threw all that out of the window and now they're complaining about the logical result.

    The Generation Game πŸ™Œ reacted to Gloommonger in DOSBODS Startup thread   
    I have been dreaming up website and app ideas for many years. Most I abandon simply because they are crap ideas or cost too much to set up. I launched a website about 12Β years ago that was a google map for local events. You could sign up and post a pin of your event on the map or filter and search for local events that might be of interest. I soon realised that getting new users is labour intensive and costly and there was always the threat of Google doing the same. There are now sites like Evensi that will scrape for new events, much more efficient.Β 
    I am soon launching a mobile app that I have great faith in, is a world first and is revolutionary. I won't post details for anonymity reasons. If I have a killer idea and believe I can create it for a reasonable cost I have to go for it. If it doesn't make money, I at least can be happy I tried.

    The Generation Game πŸ™Œ reacted to Wight Flight in Degree or Not degree? That is the question   
    Au contraire.
    Out of 677 members, we know that 50 have a degree. Those that haven't voted either a) didn't understand the question or b) Were ashamed to admit their failings or c) Didn't look at the thread as they thought it was some Shakespeare bollocks that they wouldn't understand.
    Therefore I am going to claim the non voters for team ungraduated.Β  We are massively in the lead.

    Categories are useful if the allow you to model the world with some degree of accuracy. The better the categories, the better the model. Man and woman are extremely useful categories, not least of which for the core function of reproduction. Equally you could categorise people by the ratio of their arm length to their leg length, but it wouldn’t (I assume) give you much insight into their group behaviour, let alone give statistically significantΒ insight into an individuals future behaviour.
    Categories are best if easily defined and they help toΒ captureΒ some useful information about some intrinsic quality.
