>Don't make fun of my hobbies.
When your hobbies are innately hilarious to everyone around you, its very hard to not laugh in your face.

You know those people who you catch looking at you in public places? They're only looking at you too long because they caught themselves about to break out in laughter. Its taking all their concentration to stifle that impulse.

Do you think there is some correlation between beauty and intelligence?

Anecdotally speaking, based on my experience and social interactions, a lot of ugly people i've met were objectively smart and a lot of beautiful people were objectively dumb.

What do you think /b/?

Everything has political significance if you don't have a life and try really, really, really hard to make something politically significant.

You don't even have to try that hard anymore when you can connect with networks of keyboard warriors who will gladly share the burden of reading politics into everything. I heard that there are evidently numerous people that'll refuse to buy a product because the company that made it bought an ad on a TV show they don't like, so it's possible for large groups to experience lots of outrage.

poe 17/04/19(Wed)01:00 No. 764392

There's even legions of people who won't buy products made by a company who employs a person who endorsed a candidate they read some weird conspiracy theories about. Sure, the theories started out as works of fiction written on some random blogs but then they got picked up by keyboard warriors with axes to grind and suddenly fiction became non-fiction in the minds of some.

Dreads as a Symbol of Black Culture
When non black people in the modern west wear dreadlocks, they are appropriating an aspect of black culture. This is a microaggression. Dreads and other natural hairstyles are undeniably deeply connected to black culture, and are therefore seen as a negative trait because of institutional racism. Black people lose jobs over this. They lose credibility in some cases. Non black people do not face the same consequences for having dreadlocks, and do not have the same cultural context to dreads. It is appropriation and harms the black community.
Black people straightening their hair is assimilation. Because of the aforementioned institutional racism and eurocentric western ideals, natural hair is not widely accepted. Therefore, black people often straighten their hair to assimilate (fit into, be accepted as part of, etc) into western culture. Straight hair is not deeply connected to nonblack culture, and does not have the same cultural context as dreads. It is not symbolic in any way to non black people, and if anything has been used to distinguish us from black people and further categorize society. Therefore it is not a microaggression or appropriation. It is assimilation and is not damaging to non black communities. Negative repercussions or discrimination for naturally straight hair is nearly unheard of.
Dreads and other black natural hairstyles are not a cultural norm. They are seen as untidy or dirty. This dates back to slavery and continues today. Dreads are and have been connected to black people in America because they form naturally with textured black hair, which is a unique trait not found in other hair types. Also, hair has been used as a way to "other" people. This happened with red hair and continues to happen with black natural hair. As a species, humans like to categorize and generalize people and things, and that is the heart of institutional racism. That is why dreads in many places are not allowed, or why French Muslim girls may not wear hijabs to school. When a non black individual dons dreads in America, they do so despite this context. They are not judged as harshly for their hair. They do not face the same stereotypes that black people face.
One might argue that nonblack individuals who have dreads are also judged negatively by mainstream society. While this is true, these stereotypes exist because of the connection with black hairstyles to exoticism (like afros, "voodoo magic"/witch doctor stereotype) and also to negative racial traits. Before the 1960s, dreads and afros were worn exclusively by black people. It wasn't "in vogue" so to speak for non black Americans to wear them. Now that there's a certain disconnect between dreads and black people, the negative connotations with dreads would extend to other races as well. The backlash against dreads has racist undertones, and would definitely affect non b Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Well, if you commit a crime, you are forced to serve time in prison, where they force you to do all kinds of things.

If you sign up with the military, they force you to do all kinds of things too.

Though acceptance is certainly hard to force. Even though the military has had women serving for decades they're still collecting and trading nude pictures of fellow soldiers.

>a secure location to store files
You mean a non-secure location, or a secure shared location yes?

>how one Linux user can share data with another Linux user
Save the files outside of the user's home directory and set appropriate permissions.

Usually /tmp/ (destroyed on reboot) and /var/tmp/ (persistent) are available for this purpose.

Here’s what I think…these ideas about how words have deep and sometimes hidden impacts on people…they developed in isolation at academic institutions. They sat around in the collective consciousness of liberal-arts educated folks like myself for a long time before finally leaking out as the internet brought over-educated people together with people who had never been exposed to these ideas.

When that started happening, it mostly resulted in harmless frustration as people who were 10 steps deep into these issues expressed frustration at people who were busy living lives that did not include feminist critique (and vice versa).

But the internet doesn’t amplify harmless frustration, it amplifies the voices of the most outraged. And the outrage pulls useless, angry, poorly-reasoned arguments out of both sides. Then one side shares the worst of the responses from the other side. And the other side responds in kind.

The anti-SJW side never actually got exposed to the original arguments, they were either exposed to the worst reactions of angry feminists or to the imagined, inflamed, and even impersonated versions that have popped up over the last few years.

After having been been exposed to those judgements (or the imagined versions of them) people feel as if they’ve been told that they are evil or bad or whatever and MUST BEAHVE DIFFERENTLY. And the response of young people, especially young men, when they think someone is trying to control them with what sounds like adversarial and made-up bullshit tends to be frustration and anger. This isn’t just young people and it’s not just men, but it tends to be young men because there’s a tendency among both young people and men to chafe at people attempting to control them.

And, yes, it tends to be young white men, because white people are, on average, less used to people attempting to control them. And, yes, it gets worse if the person attempting to do the controlling is a woman because, well…maybe let’s not go there right now. And there’s nothing like a person who is unused to feeling persecuted, and is maybe also feeling insecure and searching for a way to identify with strength and masculinity (and, in the most severe cases, might even be feeling very lost and lonely and rejected for other reasons), for spending a lot of time getting really angry really publicly.

So that’s what I think it’s about. And I think both sides participated handily in airwolfing it up. Because this was all supposed to be about empathy, and yet so many people’s first exposure to these theories was being shouted at for being in the world incorrectly. And as much as young white men do not sound like the group of people that needs the most empathy in the world, I think there has been a lot of damage done to the world by belittling their frustrations and calling them unimportant. Even if those frustrations are comparatively unimpo Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's time I was honest with you about my intentions.

We've talked before about my desire to establish a cult, and my disdain for abrahamic nonsense.

My ultimate goal is to redefine the religious cannon of all semetic and otherwise deity-worshiping religions; to disrupt and undo millennia of dogma and open all the closed minds of the religious of every kind to the logical reality of the universe. Perhaps that sounds like a simple, yet futile, goal to you: that it makes absolute sense that religion is nonsense and the universe is vast; but I mean do to do this--in my own lifetime--for the purpose of literally saving the souls of all humanity, to make the majority understand that we are not alone, we are not the penultimate lifeforms, and that evolution is not through with us.

It is a great folly of humanity to presume that the sum of divine wisdom is discernible from either our physical forms or our experience in this existence. If indeed there is a metaphysical consciousness responsible for all that is, we are no closer to understanding it now with our Large Hadron Collider or CRISPR/Cas9 than we were in caves carving stones into axes. As the universe is vast beyond measure, so must be its theoretical progenitor.

The biblical account of the origin of the species is the best effort of humans living in the time, in the fertile crescent, to describe the experience they had of extra-terrestrial intervention in their evolution filtered through generations of oral tradition. A thorough reading of the semetic cannon and study of global archeological evidence for the period support that something drastic changed the course of human society in this time and not only in the middle east. That does not appear to be the advent of sentience; humans were already sentient when this occurred. It speaks volumes that we simultaneously developed agriculture and community around the globe, but it is apparent that we were left to our own devices to discover bronze and iron; that we came up with many of our base technologies ourselves, after someone helped us transition from highly-intelligent cave-dwelling hunter-gathers into "societies".

We should not be worshiping the Elohim. They were not deities. They intervened in our evolution; promoted us to social beings, but they were not our creators. We have no evidence that they were capable of any such thing. Life evolved on this planet as naturally as it evolved anywhere else. Throughout the cosmos, there are places where the conditions are right for the chemistry of life to take place. We live in a time when evidence is forthright that this is so, that even within our own solar system life has been exchanged between planets by asteroids containing microbes--and that microbes on our own world can live in the vacuum of space.

The deities of the ancient religions were not gods, but beings somewhat more evol Message too long. Click here to view the full text.
