Sorry, I follow corporate lingo at all times. The word is fingers, occasionally accompanied by "lonely"

What history books? We'll all be dead in 100, 150 years tops

People with recent ancestors from other countries aren't allowed to be President of a country founded by people with recent ancestors from another continent!

No, we won't. AI is still in its infancy and that AI anime was atrocious. In as soon as five years we could see this, maybe even two or three if we put no brakes on the extinction of a shared reality, but not next week.

Global warming is the greatest threat to not just our national security, but the security and stability of the world as a whole. I know y'all are against globalism, but some sort of managed global equilibrium is a fucking necessity as long as we still have hundreds and hundreds of extinction orbs lying around. If you don't want a worldwide unigovernment to manage these existential threats, fine, makes sense, but we gotta have something.

And that something is precarious, and will be even more so when hundreds of millions of people are displaced. They gotta go somewhere, but with world population as it is, there really isn't the currently available room for a mass exodus of this size. Sure, there are a few ghost cities here and there but that's like trying to soak up a bucket of water by placing a few paper towels on top.

Y'all whine a lot about "chaos at the border" and "immigrant crime waves" and yet seem totally uninterested in protecting or even vaguely planning against true border chaos, the kind that destabilizes regions, and eventually countries. Countries with access to extinction orbs.

This is of course to say nothing of how huge energy independence will be as a tactical military advantage going forward, and I count independence from a non-renewable resource in there because I even vaguely care about long-term strategy and what happens after I am gone. Also, you know, food chains? We need a certain ecological stability to harvest and create the food sources we need to, what the word, exist? You can't just lose entire genus (like sea turtles) and not have serious repercussions. You might not be aware, not being the keen student of history that I am, but armies generally require food to function, and there is a strong link between food and morale, and between morale and desertion.

But the two situations shown are completely different? Only posture is similar? What a low-quality meme

This is like asking a toddler with a really good vocabulary to deliver a speech about the comparative ethics of the situation in Kashmir. AI can't properly detect and guard against manipulation of the public opinion used to create itself. Way too early for this to mean anything. Maybe in as soon as five years, but the tech just isn't there yet. And no, Elon does not have some magic tech no one else does, because what makes good AI of this sort is time and battle testing more than anything else.

The new fancy AIs can't agree on whether it's ethical to eat any kind of meat or whether scholarly journals actually exist. They are still extremely prone to hallucination. Any results will be immediately challenged and false positives WILL BE FOUND. This is just another manboy publicity stunt y'all keep falling for. Not all of y'all, but enough to be disheartening.

And this is why you don't withhold cricket from India.

And that exploited labor did not create a revenue engine without which we never could have gotten out from under the massive debts we accrued fighting the British? Slaves were involved in zero famous construction projects?

Free labor made America great, which is why we fought so hard to hang on to it. Losing free labor would mean losing the original American way of life. And it was lost, as the victims of Reconstruction well know.

It's not for kids. It's rated TV-MA. You know Disney+ has Rated R films on there, right? Like every other streaming service? You know Buena Vista Pictures IS Disney, right? Over the past three decades, they have amassed a massive warchest of IP for kids, adults, and everything in between. It's practically a monopoly at this point.

Except everything was wrong. Literally everything here is wrong.

The only thing that was guessed correctly was that there would be a deadly virus in the 2020s. Which is not a hard guess to make, given that the scientists people love to regularly dismiss here have long said the pattern of zoonotic viruses emerging as a result of deforestation and factory farming that we saw in the aughts and teens would continue. And it did. And it will keep continuing.

This timing is proof that the Bill Gates thing is a coincidence. He's a long-term strategist businessman. If he knew Covid was coming, he wouldn't have done something so obvious right before.
