I have decided to replace the meaning of the word "hard" with "fun".

I expect dialogues to unfold like this.

Me - ...and so, that's the company I want to create.
Someone - But it's going to be extremely hard fun!
Me - I know right!! Can't wait to get started.

It sounds like a paradox. If your chances of success increase the harder it is, doesn’t that mean it’s easier to be successful if it’s harder?

Likewise the converse says it’s harder to become successful the easier it is.

A good example that would fit into the Russell-Zermelo paradox. Contradictory but consistent within the set.

The vaccine sounds bad. When Big Pharma bangs Big Gov, the resulting bastard is Big Evil squared. In fact, pressure for results over standard ethical procedures is how COVID-19 got released in the first place... I'm sure injecting everyone with the "cure" will go wonderfully.

Ironic that its efficacy is lower than COVID's survival rate. All that's necessary to protect oneself is to just take some vitamin D and sunshine! And treatments have gotten much better. But of course the land of TSA must have its security theater.

However, anti-maskers don't mean it. None of them will accept a duel at 5 paces, to receive a sneeze from an Ebola patient, patient masked for me, unmasked for thee. Variolation isn't just from vaccines; the winner of the immune system's wars depends strongly on the size of the initial dose. Masks would help if COVID-19 didn't exist; plenty of virii do.

Like debris accumulating in orbit, eventually man will tinker enough to unleash some seriously severe circulating virii. COVID's persistent recurrence suggests it has joined permanent circulation, although fortunately it's not severe. It's the first bio-Chernobyl, and everyone is scared silly by the novelty of fallout.

Vitamin D insufficiency may account for almost 90% of Covid-19 deaths (mdpi.com)

You missed this from late August. Rct, calcifediol administered to hospitalized patients. Absolutely massive effect on ICU admission.
There have been three RCT I know of. Another calcifediol study showed a big impact. An oral supplement study on hospitalized patients did not. Presumably because oral supplements take a while to change levels whereas calcifediol does not.

Haha, i like it, but no!

I didn't replace hard with easy!! I replaced it fun.

It is not a question of knowing whether chances of success increase or not. It is a way to estimate how much fun I am going to have doing it.

It actually isn't paradox - the increase of chances means that it everybody will try and many will succeed.

If something is hard a) not many people will try b) out of those who try not many will succeed.

So for example if You're into programming Operating System, you basically deal with Windows, macOs and Linux - 3 competitors.

If you're into fidget spinners (for lack of better example) you're competing with 1000's of others.

I think this dude had me look up more words in one day than the entirety of my 2020 reading and online interactions. Almost gave me a case of sesquipedalophobia.
Thats true :D

Moldbug is only the latest heretic to successfully use obfuscated diction to lose inquisitors and bypass resistance to persuasion. You won't catch this nick writing heretical tl;drs. Software developers are gentle folk, easily startled.

Any sufficiently advanced intelligence is indistinguishable from inanity. There's a price for speaking plainly.


An accessible summary of a theory that Pelosi aims for interim president to further the Great Reset, a once-in-a-lifetime fire sale on global assets over which multi-generational banker bandits must salivate. Not safe for Reddit.

Remember how MJ said something about planning to sell apples but ending up with an orange slice factory? Well, you know what I mean. Anyway. My situation has improved a lot.

- I found something I can do freelance and get paid for 60-150€ an hour. I'll probably discuss what it is at a later time. 700€ on a weekend has been my record, so far. But customer acquisition is not easy, I've gotten my customers through Facebook, for now. I'm thinking of ways to change that. This is where SEO comes into play. It's something I haven't done before (commercially) and I didn't know there was actually such a demand for it that I can command these prices.
- Through happenstance, I met someone on Twitter who would do all the stuff I'm not licensed for, yet, because the government still sleeps. Splitting profit, though. That goes against the command of control, big time. But still better than not moving forward.
- Seems like that dreadful job will allow me to switch to part-time at better pay. But since one of the most important lessons in business I learned is "only dry ink counts", I won't celebrate, yet.

Anyway, the bills for the veterinarian stack up fast. Also, I'm still drained of energy. The winter lockdown isn't good for my mental health, and I currently have a hard time staying sober. Therefore I'm slowing down a bit, because should I relapse, _everything_ is at stake.

''The great reset'' This is real, and Trudeau has openly talked about it

There was some tinfoil hat conspiracy theory about further restricting travel and making vaccines mandatory here in Canada, one business owner was hauled off to jail for going against flu laws, also Mr Justin has praised China in the past of their dictatorships..

Scary times, just a few days ago some teen girl got her a$$ kicked by Vancouver police for not wearing a mask... 2 fully grown men abusing a small girl what a world we live in.

And Biden.....oh jeez 2021 might even be worse

Hey,

Would you help me? I would be happy to return the favor if you need something else in exchange, now, or in the future.

I have been working on a website where I sell a digital product related to online dating and Tinder.

I just need an opinion on the copy that I have written. That's it. I'm looking for someone who can tell me "it's good"; "it's bad"; "change this".

If you wanna help out, just like the post and I'll drop the URL in private.

Thx : )

PS: In my culture, we don't ask for help, so I'm really out of my comfort zone here, which is why the message may appear awkward.

I get that question a lot. The answer depends on who's asking.

If it's the PhDs critiquing my work, I tell them I'm the world's first cognitive cyborg. Treefactor's next demo will involve playing AI Dungeon, and feature exciting production values such as audio commentary.

If it's my tyke, the answer is, "NO I AM NOT A ROBOT, ARE YOU A ROBOT?" to ruthless tickling.

Speaking of intelligence, it's not intelligent to challenge military intelligence:


Everyone is talking about Caesar, but Sulla came first.

I understand that people are going through tough times right now, unemployment is sky high, and people are having trouble paying rent. There should be options to help people because we shouldn't just throw people onto the streets.

But where in the hell did the idea landlords are evil and that people owning homes should not expect others to pay for somebody else's mortgage come from? What is all this #CancelRent?

If people don't want to pay for somebody else's mortgage then those people should purchase their own homes. Can't afford to buy your own home? Is that a good reason to start hating landlords?

Hey @mon_fi , I see you're in Brussels, not sure which language you're using for your product but if you need a French speaker just let me know. I'll be glad to help.

exactly. The people they should hate are the policymakers. The landlords are the ones who actually take the risk and maintain homes so people don't have to live on the streets, under bridges, or in sewers.

The idea has been popular for 1000s of years... it takes a pretty juvenile mind to entertain the idea with any seriousness.

Maybe ask people that think its a good idea if they are willing to work for free :happy:

What is all this #CancelRent
It's a product of OSP (One Stupid President).
That president moved masses by showing that being dumb is something worthy and powerful.
So they used a sum of all their brains and figured out that 1+1=2 so if there is president who can do anything dumb so can they.

Now i have even greater idea:
#CancelEverything

I mean ,like, cancel the need to pay for anything.
Instead of those pesky landlords let's have pesky everyone.
Like:
"You pesky neighbor, how dare you have savings! I'm coming after you boi!"

Since there is #CancelEverything there also will be forced #WorkForFree
but 1+1=2 minds won't grasp it until it's them who will be doing the free work.


I wonder if there will be "To Be Continued".

Hatred for landlords is a perennial feature of the historical cycle. Non-primitive societies have two competing feedback systems: tribal-genetic and capitalist-oligarchic. The latter tends to oppress the former until the former kills the latter. Competence in warfare is just as much a valid thermodynamic metric as competence in business, so this cannot be regarded as entirely illegitimate.

Balancing the two forces is difficult. The Spartan system used iron for money and permanently enslaved the Helots. The Old Testament Law bound rural land to patrilineages, limited debt slavery, and held jubilees. The modern system alternates between right and left wing governments, constitutionally or otherwise.

Nominally-capitalist oligarchic forces drive atomized Millennials and Gen-Z to desperation. Negative affect pervades society like vapor permeating a oil tanker before a thermobaric blast.

The solution is obvious: We need more corporate motivational posters!
