The Universe is a Garbage Truck and no one is driving.

Comments, anyone...............?
Generalizations. A bit from a pessimistic viewpoint. Key word(s): Garbage Truck.

I see varying Garbage Trucks here and there, not necessarily dominating in the way a civilization, the world or the universe would.

I give value to the "civilization - all of us", "world - I" and "universe - no one" pairs of words though, kind of witty.

That contrast between Americans perhaps not relying on the Russians to go to space while the country was attempted to be burned to the ground. It was ironic.
Honestly I didn't think the divided states of America had it in them anymore. But They excelled the French and arguably the Greeks in a single weekend.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

"Burn" to the ground and hack to death Facebook and the tiny loser Zuckerwhore. Anything goes for them. First they destroy endless quality time for billions. They develop BS crap trends to suck the life out of endless time on so many on irrelevant things and big brother everyone and their grandma, an entire generation of people with wasted valuable time and priorities over gossip and noise. Now Trump too risky to not continue to rape America for them? Capitalism at its best. Too many billions to lose who cares about society. Down to hell it is.

I have a feeling I've seen this before

All the numbers look very familiar.

That’s the number of beers I plan on drinking in my lifetime. Chez has probably already surpassed that number.

That's actually the amount we in the ministry of propaganda have invested in research and development for our new campaign. I can now reveal it's key point:

I hate that feeling. I think of old phone numbers, bank accounts, dig thru paper file, check barcodes of random household products. Unlock codes to email accounts.I compare barcodes of house hold products to others. I ask what all the numbers mean. I ask why letters are mixed with numbers sometimes. And I chase a separate case. Happens once in a blue moon only. More often would be crazy.

Probably a subliminal go code, like with Sirhan Sirhan.

This is different depending how you use it. It certainly doesnt follow you all over the internet and record where you go when logged in or allow dictators to propagate bs lies to the masses.

Lets see 1 0,1 2, 1 3 , 1 4, 2 6, 2 7, 1 8, 1 9

10 digits. It can be rearranged 10!/2!/2!- 9!/2!/2! while remaining a true 10 digit number. Or 816480-1 opportunities to see it again!

World population today at this hour is at some instant within minutes from editing 7788540736 (or whatever projection they have to approximate the plausible truth) with 330000 births today (144000 deaths) so in principle if arranged as 7789... etc you will see that number again this week as world's population at some point.

Its also the amount of money needed for retirement in order to build scientific society and dominate the solar system if nobody did it before that.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

An exceptionally difficult number to define properly actually. That is because the birth is not an instant and we need therefore a definition of start of individual that of course is already true as fetus so define it as cutting the cord? Then we need proper synchronization of clocks due to planet being a great size system. Then we need to define death itself ie at what point someone is gone but this is a loose concept because after 1-2 min without heart beat one is not technically dead yet if proper help comes and those have to be defined not loosely enough because they happen within 1 second multiple times.

So from a teleological perspective the number backwards played can ne defined given what actually happened only if a global supercomputer was monitoring everybody and then registered exactly the moment something was defined as + 1 and -1 given what ultimately happened unless one came back and then died later requiring only the last time to count at -1 point as the point heart stops beating for last time with future look up to see if it was truly the last one.

Brings into the discussion what is something that can be known to exist at some-point even without a conscious observer just because the interactions with the universe registered it.

So only backwards known not as it happens actually which is intriguing.

What could go wrong?





When you have to sum over all paths to get to the truth then this picture is part of the truth...Quantum mechanics was there before.

This shows the value of discussion. I thought about the death definition thing. But not when you actually are born. You need to get in the definitions, let's say with an agreement and correctness of a millisecond. But whatever the definitions, you will in the end come to an exact number. I'd say it exists. I'd say existence can't depend on being a BS observer.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Let's say you are born when the last fragment of your umbilical cord is separated with the scissors. Think that can be defined within a millisecond if you really are in for it
