I keep asking people this - why do you believe for a second that the people who make these accusations are being even slightly sincere?

These people like mudslinging - they don't want to help anyone. The goal is to spread misery with never-ending propaganda campaigns.
Do you mean accusations and stories about being called slurs or the accusations against China committing genocide?

I'd call the latter credible since both sides in America (very divided otherwise) seem to agree that it is or was happening.

Even CNN (I'm really surprised) seems to agree on this point: Exclusive: New report claims evidence of Beijing's 'intent to destroy' Uyghur people

Do you mean accusations and stories about being called racial slurs or the accusations against China committing genocide?

Basically, 99% of the time, people making noise about racial issues in America aren't interested in making things better. i won't say that racial problems don't exist (they obviously do), but it's mostly divide and conquer propaganda campaigns - 'keep the lower classes fighting with each other so that the rich can keep going to the bank' as George Carlin used to say.

China's doings are out of my wheelhouse, so i won't comment there.

Really sad to see what is happening between Israel and Palestine. It seems this conflict will never have an end and it just takes a spark to go from conflict to all out war and back.

I'm sure that some poor bastard in this thread is desperately trying to make sense of something absurd thing that they recently saw / heard someone do.

Let me help you out - there's nothing to understand. Human nature is the simply most absurd tragic comedy imaginable. The gods certainly have a (dark) sense of humor.

Just seen them going off on scumbag Tate lol

The tates are awful people. I'm glad that they did, simply because it will stop people from taking advice from awful people.

Have you Upworkers added your diversity badge yet?! I couldn't find the "White Male Privilege" badge so I guess the right option for me is U.S. Veteran-Owned.

Also, where is the badge for "High-Performance Freelancer"? I didn't see that anywhere.

Seriously though, does anybody else not give a shit what a freelancer's background, preferences, or skin color is as long as they can get the job done right? Being a disabled black LBGTQ does NOT tell me you can code my app.

All this tells us is that math dictates the universe.

Every one of these patterns can be modeled as an equation.

And the same equations are found all over nature - that's pretty much what science is...discovering those equations.

We can take science down to various levels of abstraction:

- Sociology, Philosophy etc. would be the highest level, very abstract. Honestly, this is more "art" than science
- Psychology would be the next level
- Biology next
- Chemistry
- Physics
- Mathematics - the lowest level - the foundation

Each higher level is made up of the lower levels. Biology can be broken down into chemical components, and the chemical components can be broken down in physical rules about atoms and whatnot, and all of that is determined by numerical relationships.

Basically, it all goes down to basic counting and math. But it can expand to be uuuuuuber complex.
Are you saying math is God?

As far as I'm aware math isn't a science?

My uncle got vaccinated then two weeks later got COVID and passed away. Same thing happened to my cousin’s grandma. She got vaccinated then passed away from Covid three weeks later. The media would never report stories like that.

A man made vaccine for a man made virus. So it’s anybody’s guess.

My friend got vaccinated then was sick for three days.

Loss leader - Wikipedia

Was thinking about this today. Sell something at a loss or break even to get people to come in and sell something else at a profit. You could do it with brick and mortar and online. It’s a powerful marketing strategy.

It's forbidden in Belgium to sell at a loss (except in certain cases which I forgot).

(Somewhere in the world, a mom reading journal while laying on a sofa):
"Kids! Remember to EAT the dishes after dinner!"
"Ok mom!"

Actually, in Middle-Age Europe, bread served as a plate. You'd put your food on it, then eat the food on the bread, then eat the bread.

I start seeing a lot of people waking up to the insanity of these policies and fighting back by speaking their minds. I used not to do it because I was afraid to be canceled, but not anymore.

I’m just saying math is the language that describes the universe.

You could say math is the key to understanding what God created..?

The vaccine doesn't even work, so don't get it.

Perspective....

I figured since it’s the weekend I can burn an hour watching something.

ended up watching Love it or List it, Canada version.( not sure there’s others)

I’m from East Europe but I grew up in London.
I always knew Canadians and Americans liked massive houses, cars and food portions, but hell.


My box - so called house - in London is 60 sq mt / 645 sq feet. And that is being generous.
It’s not enough for a big family and of course I’d like 5 more rooms. But my point is, is liveable, you can make it work.




So I’m watching this show on youtube and here they are, a couple from Canada.

3500 square feet/ 325 sq meters house.

THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SPACE!!!!

@woken And here I am with my 650 square feet shoebox hahaha.

But to be fair, my furniture at first was an air mattress and a bar stool xD.

As far as good watches" I've love that Food That Built America show on the History channel. Covers candy, soda, fast food chains, etc. Those entrepreneurs were such innovators, it's insane.

Ex. Guy that started chocolate-coated ice cream came up with ice cream trucks for storage and transport.

Another ex. Swanson tv dinner guy got the idea for frozen turkey tv dinners because he overbought turkey to corner the market and was backed against the corner if it spoiled.

It's very inspiring and just awe-inducing to see their persistence AND innovative talents.

“It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. But when it is wasted in heedless luxury and spent on no good activity, we are forced at last by death’s final constraint to realize that it has passed away before we knew it was passing. So it is: we are not given a short life but we make it short, and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it… Life is long if you know how to use it.”
