#2012472 what's a weird smell that you like?

If you want to read: lol

For reals, you think the only way to instil respect and manners is through inflicting pain?

Psychology is science. :| I have a bachelors of SCIENCE in psychology.


Woah, now, let's not get crazy. Psychology as a science is on shaky ground :p

Neocodex is what convinced me non-sexual spanking was wrong. Thank you @Sweeney and @Nymh


A classic thread. I remember it... if not well, then at least fondly.

You didn't turn out fine if you think hitting kids is okay. If science won't change your mind, then you're not a good scientist. Your major is irrelevant, especially if you're willing to ignore 50 years of meta-analysis in your particular major, proving you are wrong. *shrug*


No, silly. It's a great idea to teach kids to solve their problems with violence. That's how we create a better society!


#2012305 Enter the Anthropocene

Posted by Sweeney on 24 July 2017 - 09:09 AM

I believe that we are responsible about this one to some extent, but there has been 5 previous big extinctions and we didn't cause any of those. This is just mother nature taking care of herself/ her regular cycle. The strong survive the weak die. 

 

The fact that something is a natural occurrence, or part of a natural cycle, does not de facto imply that it is a "good" thing. Extinction-level events are something we should strive to avert, because we should be aiming to minimise the level of suffering that life has to undergo.

 

"The strong survive the weak die" is a deeply simplistic view of evolution. And again, just because it is natural doesn't make it "good"

Do y'all not spank in schools over there anymore?

 

It is a civilised country after all :p Not like the USA.

#2012182 What are you reading?

Posted by Sweeney on 23 July 2017 - 06:57 PM

Currently reading The Magician King by Lev Grossman and True Balance by Dr. Sonia Choquette.  Plus tarot, always reading tarot :p

 

I'm going to demonstrate how to make a thread more interesting than just a basic bitch list of books:

Wow, Nymh, I love the Magicians series! The way they describe the casting rituals with the finger tutting and whatnot adds a great layer of depth and realism to what could otherwise have just flopped into the "Gritty Potter" rut. Whoever bought those books for you must be such a great fella'.

 

What do you think about how Quentin's personality develops across the first two books? (Or doesn't, as some contend?)

Hey Kord :) Interesting new username you've got there.

 

Wow you're still alive!

 

Don't tell anyone.

Haven't seen you in some time, Sweeney. 

 

My name was spoken, thus I am here.




#1921695 Does TV change intellect?

Posted by Sweeney on 30 October 2015 - 03:48 PM

TV almost certainly has no effect on your actual core personality traits, but it most definitely affects attitudes.

The witch quests are all completeable for newbie characters - there's no stringent requirements for map acess.

And guys, please tell me you read the things and didn't all just click around... :crybaby:

@Sweeney does it depend on your level? Because almost no monster drops candy corn for me, and after I level up, only 2 (I think) drop it :/


It does, but not exclusively. You can get drops from any monster, but the chance is significantly higher for mobs closer to your level.

@Kord There is no limit on your daily number of candy corn ^_^

Why on earth would it being chemicals mean that it's not real? Everything you are is chemicals, and that's awesome!
