Just for...black men? submitted by JohnGoodman to funny

Even Artificial Intelligence knows niggers are thieves.

I've heard it referred to as Tay's Law. Any AI, given sufficient time and information to develop, becomes racist.

Sometimes I dream of a world where biologists are given free reign and no fear and we can actually begin to understand the differences within our species. It's a question that niggles at my thoughts every now and then, even though I know I will probably never be able to answer it... How many different subspecies are there within the human race?

When you consider how many individual bloodlines there are, it seems like the number could be extremely high. Even 4000 individual subspecies sounds a bit too low to me. Most of my stock is Irish, how different am I from someone of primarily English stock? Polish?

These are mostly rhetorical questions, but I am interested in opinions too.

It also historically has been the symbol for the "endless cycle", i.e. creation -> destruction -> rebirth -> creation (or "rebirth -> death"). Essentially conveying the same many meanings as the yin/yang, or alternatively Shiva's dance.

Every culture says similar things slightly differently. The Truth doesn't change, just how people convey it to one another.

This really happened! It's still kinda funny though. submitted by KennyBrassen to funny

One day, pool noodle. Another day, mechanical death tentacle.

Then stop playing a child's toy. I'm not saying "never", but honestly over 2 hours in a week should make you question how you spend your spare time. Even just "micromeditations" of 2-10 minutes here and there are a far better use of that time, and that's not to mention reading (fiction stresses your "creative thinking" muscles more and is still healthier, ignoring the option to learn a skill from reading) or writing/drawing or exercise.

I think I've made my point: Literally anything is a better use of your free time than video games, and ultimately more rewarding. We all have the same amount of time in a week, so unless you're on an Uberman schedule and awake for 22 hours a day you probably are neglecting some aspects of your life in favor of a video game-flavored balm.

Daydreaming is even better than video games, because then your brain is the hardware the game is running on.

All things considered, a game better be fucking amazing to be worth the time investment.

And by your logic, should I start woodworking and hunting because it's manly?

No, you should learn them because they're useful skills. They're not even inherently masculine, I know plenty of good female hunters and a few good woodworkers. I cannot think of a single craft/trade that is not useful to have.

There are so many options to learn that it's a shame not to. You can make art by bending metal wire, you can cheaply/easily build a backyard forge, you can grow your own food, you can fish, you can practice photography. Hell, if you have the property or resources to travel, there's land you can mine for semi-precious gems on or pan for gold.

The real world has enough options for entertainment, I simply fail to see the need for a fake one where it's a bit easier but you can't keep any of the rewards.

Underrated post, but I'm sure you expected downvoats when you attacked so many people's feelings/identity. It's been a hard admission for me to make because I played games so heavily as a child, but after around a year of taking time away from them, I can really say that they're something that only serves a purpose for children (and even then, it's not great at it, I frown at parents that allow children to play video games often).

I still will occasionally play a couple of games, but basically just two types: Puzzle games (I prefer physical puzzles but in terms of content-to-money, you can get more puzzle for your dollar digitally) and strategy, mostly because I haven't found another way to scratch that itch. Mostly I just read with all of that time now.

Really, since abandoning a bunch of bad hobbies/vices and critically looking at my own life, it's striking to me how many people are permanent children. On the one hand I feel guilty for taking so long to get my shit together (I'm 24) but when I look around I see many people in their 40s and 50s who still act like overgrown toddlers. Almost nobody my own age is worth having a conversation with, I cherish the few close friends I have.
