It happens for me at work (Firefox on Windows), but not at home (Firefox in Linux). I haven't tried other browsers at work, so I dunno, but it's probably specific to that combination.

And yes, by "it", I mean small penises.

You would think someone even moderately competent would send equipment with oh, say the power cable actually wired into the device, when they know we have to power it up.

No less an authority than Robert Schadewald wrote -- in the SKEPTICAL INQUIRER NO LESS! -- that "...flat-earthism is as well supported scripturally and scientifically as creationism."

Now let's do the math. 55% of all American voters believe in creationism. If flat-earthism is as valid scripturally AND SCIENTIFICALLY as creationism, then OVER HALF OF ALL AMERICANS should, based on Christian beliefs, find that flat-earthism is valid.

157,118,453.25 American Christians believe that God's Word is better than scientific snot-hole-ism about evolution. Why should Christian scripture indicating a flat earth be any less believable?

I'll bet you doubters just think scripture is a pile of stupid superstition that should be eliminated from the human mental gene pool. God hates people like you.


Never knew there were other sites aside from 4chan that were based on trolling new users.

The penny dropped for me when I came across the thread about beating your wife according to Biblical scripture.

I don't laugh that much, though. It just makes me sad, because I know Landover is satire, but plenty of respectable citizens in America actually believe that shite.

I've thought about getting a motorcycle, but two things are stopping me. 1) Lack of confidence in my driving skills, and 2) knowing I would want to drive 120 mph down the interstate. Not a good combination, unless I have a death wish.

Wishes driving in real life was like Mario Kart. Sustains no damage from head-on collisions. Fishes you out if you fall off of a cliff or nearly drown. Could distract yourself from the drive by hurling turtle shells at nearby drivers. Does not matter if you travel at the speed of molasses or of a bullet (bill).

Hopes to be able to one day say, "Sorry for arriving late. Was struck by two red shells and a bomb near the highway on-ramp." Would prefer to avoid potential legal repercussions, though, as this video suggests.

On the topic of bikes, what does the average 750cc bike with a full tank weigh? Something like 200 kgs? I was quite surprised on how heavy they are when you've got to pull them of a person... :P

and it doesn't matter if you go loads slower than the other traffic, since the rubber band effect comes into play

Rubber banding is cheats in racing games. Though, to defend Nintendo's choice... Mario Kart isn't fun if you are way ahead of everyone and you have nothing to fear except random track traps and blue shells.

You know, I think I may have lost my mind, but I have to say this before it consumes me.

Because when I saw on these forums a thread that implicitly and explicitly stated that you simply ceased to exist after death, I think it was the genisis of an exstistential crisis. Because the two methods I have for checking a problem can't work here. There is no way for me to find out what happens after death, and neither can I avoid it...

In fact, what is the point of doing anything if your just going to become nothing and civilization is going to end and the sun will explode and the universe will die and anything you do now will be erased in the future? I'm always angry about never doing anything except dicking around on electronics and shit all day, but why should I do anything more than that if none of it will matter in the end? Why do we even exist if we're just going to end someday?

Clearly, the only way to give anything meaning is to ensure it exists forever and ever and ever and ever and ever; life, the universe and everything must exist forever, must be made to exist forever. Because otherwise...

Fuck, what should we do. What should I do? This is all clearly insane and a waste of forum space and I deserve an infraction, but I'm scared and confused and just numb with terror because these thoughts and fears of my own mortality have taken up an unwanted spot in my life and I need to figure out what I can do about it all...

Achilles (according to the movie Troy) wanted his name to live forever - assuming the universe and life goes on forever and ever and it never dies a fiery (well...) death, would you then not ask, "what matters now, what matters me, in light of eternity. When memory fades and legends turn to myth, and then die, who was I to the cosmos"? I don't have an answer to that question, or to the question you asked in your post. Both questions are the same, though one assumes much of memory and the other assumes much of the universe.

But I think much the same thoughts as you, and the only way I lay my mind to rest on this particular matter is to focus on what I mean to me, and those around me that I have elevated to the esteemed position in which I hold myself*. I care not so much what matter I am to the cosmos, and pay much more attention to what matter I am to the philosophies and people I care for. Which may not help you at all.

Hrm...

There is no "point". We exist because there's strong selective pressure for wanting to exist. If you don't want to exist, nature will gladly erase you, taking any possible genetic cause for not wanting to exist along with you. It's brutal and frankly rather shitty, but (per Occam's Razor) it's probably the truth.

As for things to do, try one of these:
  • Decide life isn't really that shitty and you might as well make the best of it until the sweet touch of death takes it away.
  • Decide that life is that shitty, and dedicate yourself to making it less so.
  • Decide that regardless of whether life means anything, you do care about others, make the best of it for their sake, and hope they do the same for you.
  • Desperately cling to religion to get a sense of purpose.

Admitably, I feel a bit calmed down now, mainly because I was having one of my 'what happens after you die' freakouts and then the extistensialist questions spiraled out as a result of that, which just resulted in these anxieties that wouldn't leave until I addressed them.

Still, I'm getting the impression that the point of living is to make the best of it and not just spiral into dispair because the ending might not be so hot?

And to try and live in the here and now?

Did I get any of that right?
