  • In a world where the bizarrely outlandish has become commonplace, that letter the other day from Trump's doctor about his annual physical stood out as unusually weird

  • "The Left is angry about something but I don't understand why so I will dunk on them by gushing about how attractive I think this rando 17 year old is because that's not creepy" by Steve Sailer

  • Pretty strange for them to put that on a magazine that came out during the middle of Black History Month, even if it is dated March on the cover. Does no one see how that may be a bit... insensitive at least? Or are we just completely buying into the 'empathy is for pussies' thing now?

    Also... what fenomas said.

  • I don't think it's the timing really, it's the utterly banal "check out how tough it is to be white and male these days" premise. It would come off stupidly any month of the year.

  • No, I think you guys are missing the sheer vitriol of the reactions, and I think Fenomas is buying into the anti-white male nonsense. There has been a great deal of hate aimed at white men my entire life.

    I don't have time to go into it this morning, but I'll try to write more later. I'm not just ignoring your comments.

  • OMFG! Look at the shear volume of hate that white males have to suffer! It's terrible! Someone should do something!!!

  • Great, another "bill explains why people actually disagree with him, to several people who disagree with him" conversation will be very helpful.

    On this white male hate thing, are we talking "constant harassment from cops" sorts of hate, or the really bad stuff like criticism from social scientists?

  • We are talking years of organized vitriol that doesn't go through the formality of being true.

    Black history month isn't some kind of sacred period. That people are treating it like it is is yet another sign of societal insanity.

    I'm not just ignoring your comments, he said, before repeating himself and ignoring their comments.

    Again, the meat in this soup is the "woes of the persecuted white male" narrative. The "during Black History Month!" bit is more viral, since it fits in a tweet and you can feel strongly about it without reading the article. But the article's narrative would (rightly) get blasted any month, and the same article minus the narrative wouldn't have caused much comment. Ergo the timing isn't material.

    I was going to respond more completely, but you clearly indicated that you weren't interested.

    I mean, if it was just going to be you imputing hidden motivations on people who disagree with you, then sure. If you think the esquire article is great, and clme and I think it's terrible, is it really useful for you to lecture us on why people think it's terrible?

    It's strange to consider how many of the conversations here involve you telling us - a bunch of lefties - what you think lefties believe and why you think they believe it. Does that strike you as odd?

  • I liked this:

  • This one is enjoyable, too:

  • I hate to say it but that dude's a loon. I watched a bunch of videos of him at some point but it was all a blend of the trivial ("young men should exercise! morality is good!") and gibberish ("the parable of Chaos in the garden of Eden shows that post-marxist feminist thought is actually just pre-utopian socialism!").

    If you don't believe me look up the pronoun stuff that first brought him to prominence. Google up the law he was angry about it, and what his arguments against it were, and what the law's proponents said. His position was utterly lunatic.

  • I think his position was correct. The law will be used to inhibit freedom of speech in Canada.

    I think the man is the opposite of a loon. He has taken a couple of things that I have had a lay interest in since early life -- mythology (about age eleven) and psychology (about age 13) -- and put them together professionally, along with a solid understanding of evolutionary theory. I've always had the intuitive idea that mythology is important, but I've never been able to prove it. Peterson proves it. When I listen to him he make perfect sense to me.

    In short, the rant I listed first strikes me as completely true. The discussion I listed second strikes me as fascinating. I could sit in a room for hours just listening to those two discuss whatever they wanted.

    The Canadian Bar Association disagrees. What point of Canadian law do you think they're misunderstanding?

    The law will be used to inhibit freedom of speech in Canada.

    It passed about two years ago, so you now have a rare chance to test your prediction.

  • Right. I don't see a whole lot of Canadian news. For what it's worth, I've read/heard that the Canadian press is engaging in more self-censorship.

  • You'd make a great pundit.

    "I predict that if X happens, Y will happen."
    "X happened two years ago."
    "And already we're seeing signs of Y, which proves the X-Y connection."

  • Since he's apparently about to be back in the news, this was a pretty interesting read:

  • I believe Milwaukee removed some highway exits and cancelled a new highway plan in order to improve traffic flow in a few neighborhoods. Of course, there are still a dozen others so its not like they put this into a mass test. But it was interesting..

    I will say though I still want the loop around the city though. I'd rather drive around the city at 70mph than stop at a traffic signal or stop sign every 3 blocks. :-)

    Of course, there are certain points of congestion that cannot be avoided... bridges, certain valleys or hills, etc.

    In the end that video seemed like a long way around to get to robocars though. :smile:

  • This one is pretty funny, too, and it has some surprises, at least it surprised me.
