No, it is based on the laws of thermodynamics. There is no cherry picking of data, because it is not based on data points. It's just a consequence of how the universe works. The sun is burning something. Once this resource is exhausted the sun will go dark. It will never go back to providing "green energy". Everything in the universe is like that. The only way to prevent the heat death of the universe is to reverse entropy. That is like traveling back in time. Impossible.

So going to other planets isn't a solution. We have to actually leave this universe. Whether this is even possible or not, I do not know. But if we do not, we will 100% perish in the future.

The Earth is not alive. It's a rock in space. Whether it has living organisms on it or not doesn't matter to the rock in space.

The problem with government is the blatant corruption. I think the things you perceive as bloat were things added to reduce the corruption, but it isn't working.

The core problem is that democracy is an awful system, where you essentially give power to the people that have a big influence. So essentially rule of the rich by proxy of exchangeable puppets.

To solve the core problem of government being "incompetent" you have to solve the corruption, which you cannot do in a democracy.

Compare this with a monarchy where at the end of the day you have someone actually responsible. In a monarchy you at least need to keep everyone from hating you so much that they would go out and kill you. Not in a democracy. If any puppet gets a bit of heat the puppet is exchanged and then it is business as usual.

If the puppet tries doing things itself you just assassinate it.

The core problem is democracy.

It is designed to divide a people who should stand united. To divide them on as many issues as possible.

Classes where the teacher can give grades based on what he feels like are pointless anyway.

But for male students, who continued to see higher grades with attractiveness even when student-teacher interaction was low, beauty seems to be a productivity-enhancing attribute.

Or maybe women were the only one enjoying an eye-candy premium in the first place? Could also be that there is no such premium and women simply stop trying as hard with no in-person attention received anymore.

What are you even smoking? The heat death of the universe is inevitable. It's not just Earth. It's the entire universe. Won't happen during my lifetime, but just the travel time (let's just pretend space travel was real) would take thousands of years.

We have to start somewhere, though.

The Earth is generally fine. It might get a few degrees warmer, but that will only make winter less cold. We are at the end of an ice age, so Earth warming up isn't strange. Micro plastic pollution is of much greater concern than climate change.

Maybe Earth will even warm up enough to make Antarctica a place people would want to live.

Oh, it's just another climate bullshit article. Haven't seen one of those before. Instead of trying to prevent what is according to them unpreventable anyway, why not focus instead on how to adapt to the predicted changes?

Gimping our own economy is totally retarded. The heat death of the universe will get this planet anyway. We should invest all our resources into leaving this planet and leaving this very universe, since it is doomed. And for that we need an economy that isn't gimped.

We need to concentrate more wealth in fewer capable hands working towards space exploration and leaving behind this death sentence planet.

Yes, I do not drink alcohol. The reason is that it tastes bad. Also, I do not smoke nor do I use any illegal drugs. Not drinking coffee, either. And I'm only very rarely eating sweets.

As a non-drinker it baffles me a bit that alcohol is socially acceptable, given all its negative consequences everyone seems to be aware of.

Just talk to the people who spend years going to Africa to build infrastructure and schools to teach them and see what they have to say about this. They are mostly incapable of being schooled and they tend to destroy the stuff you build for them.

If a country is a shithole, it's because of the people living in that country. Africa is pretty much the jackpot as far as continents go. No harsh winters and there's plenty of everything. When white Europeans used to live there it was ancient Egypt and a prosperous civilization. The places with white Europeans are still prosperous civilizations.

There is no magic earth. It's all the people. Hundreds of years a go a German dude (Johann August Sutter) went to California and made a prosperous settlement inside of a desert by redirecting mountain water.

That's pretty much what the mass media is doing, yeah. You're still doing the skin color deflection, too. The talking point isn't skin color but phenotype. Or race. People are not predisposed to certain behavior because of the color of their skin, but because of their race. And even then you are going to have outliers in either direction.

But we are talking genetics here, not social factors, so even if you have an outlier, their children and grandchildren are going to return to the mean.

So you get stuff like the following where the child of someone trying to make a living destroys their living space (he got his phone taken away as a disciplinary measure, I hear), because he's unable to deal with the higher level of aggression typical for his race: https://seed125.bitchute.com/uJ9IAmdRfCdL/P12Fjpsg2Z1X.mp4 (Mirror: https://files.catbox.moe/tp9r6f.mp4)

This then translates into higher likelihood for violent crime once he gets older. Of course, if there was a father in his live he could teach him and maybe avoid the worst case scenario. Maybe. Low IQ coupled with high aggression makes for an unfortunate starting point in life.

Especially when put in a normal school class that expects you to be something you are not. So it's unsurprising that low IQ children tune out of school and do something else with their life. They still want a place to belong where they can respect for the things they do. And if they are naturally prone to high level of aggression you get gangs that fight each other. If you are not naturally prone to this you might escape into video games.

The root problem is that school fails both high and low IQ children. If the place we force children to spend most of their day was actually a place they could feel they belong to, where they could get respect for the things they do, then things wouldn't be this bad.

But high IQ children get bored with school. You can't feel respected when you solve problems that are way below you. It feels suffocating. Like people take you for an idiot. And low IQ children get overwhelmed. You can't feel respected when you are unable to solve any of the problems given to you, either. No matter how hard you try.

No, the people over there kinda hate me and downvoat most of my posts. But they don't ban me, so it's fine. Voat was even more of a free-for-all, though. But that was because the admin was missing in action so no one was even around to ban someone. At most subverse owners could ban you from their subverses.

You don't need JavaScript to login to Ramble? Thought that was the standard way of doing it.

I'm pretty sure none of those scp restrictions are actually implemented. Probably just copy pasted from old voat.

It's just a free speech place. So everyone that gets banned everywhere else ends up there. If you don't mind people getting the boot, just use reddit. If you do mind, then there's a good chance you are going to meet a lot of other banned-on-reddit people.

There are exceptions

So we can't generalize, but let's generalize in the title for clickbait anyway.

Study after study indicates running rarely causes or exacerbates arthritis in most runners’ knees

Even if it is rare and thus only affects some runners, it's a bit disingenuous to essentially say "hey, only some people get cancer from smoking and smoking is actually strengthening your lungs".

recruited 82 middle-aged, first-time racers [..] most of their first scans showed signs of incipient joint injuries, including cartilage tears and bone-marrow lesions, any of which could be early steps toward arthritis.

The wisdom I know from health professionals is that running is fucking up your legs and that you should train by doing fast walks instead.

But this simmering damage had been partially reversed by training

Yeah, training is good, but running is doing damage. Do fast walks.
