  4. @oracle No, Saddam posted for a bit under his post-fake-death identity but hasn't been around in a bit, he's old now.

  5. Reminiscing today, everything seemed to fall right in place, causality aligning and smiling in both the interactions with old friends and new ones, for me to feel as I did when I was 19 and this site was at its peak. I am genuinely happy to see that some people have vastly improved but not changed, and though regret of the friendship driftage exists, the memory is radiant and positive.
    I love everypony here (nohomo), and if you'd like to rekindle broterhood, you all know how to find me. Doubly so for Scribus and Cerulean whom I once called friends, though we have barely talked in years.

  6. @mrmattimation What level of sharingan Biden are we talking about? is he pre or post timeskip? does he have access to malarkey senjutsu?

  7. @nerthos Oops, *mill OR hot extrusion

  8. @adiwan @scribus Not much of a point either, since we already have metal 3D printing in the shape of 4+ axis mills. You just put in a sufficiently big piece of metal and load the 3D model to the CNC software and let it work.
    Mill of hot extrusion, metal printing will stay too dangerous and expensive for domestic use for at least a few decades I think. Most homes don't even have the space to fit the machinery or the wiring to run it.

  9. @nerthos @scribus In short, don't lose your mind over it too much, there's nothing to do about it. Just make sure you're taking care of your personal health so if you get infected you have high chances of recovery.

  10. @scribus Majority infection will be the eventual outcome, slower or quicker.
    There are two ways to beat a virus: you either completely isolate every infected individual and anyone who is physically capable of contracting it for at least twice the lifespan of the virus, and I'm talking full lockdown, napalmed when opening the door; or you wait until almost the entire population has been infected and developed herd immunity, at which point new infections become very rare if the virus survives at all to mutate over following years.
    Full lockdown wasn't done in time and in any case it is impossible considering the social paradigms of any western country, so the option that remains is the latter. Containment can only be reasonably used to slow spread to a rate to which the health system can handle it, but won't stop the spread, no matter how much a government insists on it. And it also vastly increases the number of deaths from existing conditions untreated due to lockdown.

  11. @scribus Do this with a few wooden poles or metal tubes and some wire. You can also use it as a support to lay a nylon or wire mesh on top if you expect hail.

  12. @thismightbeauser @scribus That is indeed the case, a lot of rich people have middle class cars and discrete houses and do their best to keep people from knowing how rich they are, due to the general sentiment of "wealth equals evil"
    You can't blame them really, if the mob will hate you just for managing to make good decisions and earning your family big money. I'd probably do the same if I couldn't simply relocate to a fortified compound with a minefield around it. It makes no sense to feel empathy for a group that has none for you, for whom you'll always be the bad guy regardless of what you do or don't do, that openly talks about how good it'd be if you died.

    The ones that show off are the sociopaths, politicians and entertainment industry guys, who by default are crooks as that whole industry is built on crime and debauchery.

  17. @nerthos Also the dev team is releasing 2.0 stable next weekend so you might want to wait for that.

    Tell them I sent you and they'll help you with it, they're all either developers or admins of several instances.

  22. @thismightbeauser So you not only need to completely reshape the economy of most countries but also need to regulate the population of each to levels their own land can sustain (without further destroying the environment to grow more crops)
    Some countries have a food surplus of 10 times their internal consumption, so they can keep their current populations without issue. But what happens with a country that has a food deficit of say, 50% of consumption? the population has to be cut in half or starve. Either way, you have a disaster in your hands with no clean way to solve it. You can pick between genocide, mass starvation or civil war, neither acceptable by any humanitarian standard. And you can be sure it'll spill to neighbouring regions.

    In short, environmental damage is such a big issue because there's no clean way of solving it, nations and fortunes depend on the wheel spinning, and genociding the world to a sustainable population numbers is off the table.

  23. @thismightbeauser An actual solution to the issue is deglobalization of economies and achieving food and industry autonomy in every relevant country, but good luck cutting the flow of shekel just like that. There is a reason any sort of nationalism is treated as evil incarnate by mainstream political parties and economic groups, a global market that depends on countries not being self-sufficient is extremely profitable, no one can stop buying or selling or their internal situation crumbles within months.
    A secondary effect of this, while a positive from an environmental point of view, is that a lot of countries simply don't have the capacity to achieve food autonomy due to having bigger populations than their fertile land can sustain. Take Nigeria for example, <1 million km2 of surface with a rapidly growing population at 190 million right now. Without world trade the country would starve, and lead to open war in the region.

  24. @thismightbeauser At the scale that'd be required? yes. Chernobyl was just radiation leakage followed by human abandonment of the region. Blasting India and China with enough firepower to cease human activity would also glass every living creature, animal or vegetal, within the region and destroy the soil. Most of the upper soil layer is organic matter and full of bacteria, superheating it would make it barren. Maybe in a few thousand years new ecosystems would form, but for the first few decades it'd be an ashen desert. Also there'd be worldwide impact from the dust and debris causing a nuclear winter.
    You could aim exclusively for the urban and industrial centers to only eliminate polluting hotspots, but that'd mean retaliation, and climate damage is a much better option than a nuclear hot war.

  25. @nerthos The one nation that might be able to pull themselves off this mess is ironically Russia, as they have been consistently ensuring their economical stability and independence through hard backing of their currency for the last decade, and have enough of an arsenal to deter any military intervention.

    Monday, 02-Mar-20 06:17:11 UTC from web in context
  26. @thismightbeauser Consider: china has a debt leash in nearly all major economies, and any attempt at imposing environmental restrictions could be easily countered by them with a threat of crashing the challenging country's economy within a day.
    The countries that would actually listen to environmental concerns, which are mostly western nations, are already on a steady yearly drop of pollution and carbon emissions.

    There's no actual solution to the issue past unleashing nuclear fire on half of Asia, which would be an environmental disaster on itself.

  27. @scribus The trick about it is noticing everyone is lying out of their asses, and just picking the lies you like most out of what's on sale.

  28. @ceruleanspark It has been so long that I don't remember what I told you regarding the game. Glad you're enjoying it, though.
    AFAIK they've put some work in fixing the most glaring issues over the years, despite the crazy antics like the duping glitches and players chasing vips off the game.
