  2. acute

    Apparently, the world is a slightly safer place now that Korean tyrant Kim Jong-Moon has met up with Chinese President D. M. Xi.

  3. Bigfoot spotted in New Jersey?

    8.5 is bigfeet? ......
  4. Helicopters and onboard cranes.
  5. Russia probes kick into high gear

    Not a religious man, myself. I should have probably posted the El Caribe information first, I guess, for context: ... Cohen's uncle, Morton Levine, was a wealthy Brooklyn doctor who owned the El Caribe Country Club, a Brooklyn catering hall and event space that was a well-known hangout for Russian gangsters. Cohen and his siblings all had ownership stakes in the club, which rented for years to the first Mafiya boss of Brighton Beach, Evsei Agron, along with his successors, Marat Balagula and Boris Nayfeld.

  6. Russia probes kick into high gear

    I trust them on this. As per their indictment -- the Russian troll farms were spending more than a Million per month. There's the whole DNC email hack thing, too.
  7. "Guru?"Asaram Convicted

    I heard he used to be a magician.
  8. Russia probes kick into high gear

    . You mean possibly as much as $10,000 dollars worth of ads on Facebook, some of them critical of America's Donald Trump? And, sorry, I can't believe even you meant that last sentence to be taken seriously. You trust the U.S. intelligence Community?!
  9. Mind-Body- debate

    Hmm, I have wondered along lines that seem similar when contemplating what could drive a person to commit suicide. At some point my brain conjured a scenario where there is some weird thing some people realise that causes them to automatically perform the action... On one clear day, for no real reason, some thought strikes them and off they go... No particular sadness... Happiness.. Relief... Just... That realisation. Had me quite uneasy... What happens if that thought hits me? How do I offset such an occurrence? The aspect of unpredictability, perhaps lack of trust, lack of certainty is an upsetting one. A lot of existential crises I had throughout my teenage years dealt with similar "what if" thought experiments. I find that I'm able to work through them all, given enough time. It takes an enormous amount of courage, trust and honesty. Truthfulness within my being.
  10. Atheism and faith

    This leans on the "No true Scotsman fallacy". But I see where you are coming from. I'm not impressed by "I used to be an atheist". It's how one came to be this, or that is what's relevant to me.
  11. Russia probes kick into high gear

    I'm always interested in evidence. Especially when it involves something that I can't quickly verify with Google. Russian interference in the US 2016 election has been confirmed on multiple occasions by the US Intelligence Community. I trust them to tell the truth on that.
  12. Vlad the Mighty

    The reclusive leader of one of the world's most secretive nations, America's Donald Trump, has agreed to meet with the much-loved leader of North korea, I hear

    The earlier Broken Down Train has now been rectified. Services are still subject to delay and confusion 

  14. World Global economics predictions

    That is a good question - one which unfortunately has not been properly / successful addressed since my country became a country almost 100 years ago. We rely too heavily on other parts of the UK to subsidise us and on public sector jobs - many outsourced from other parts of the UK. Brexit is a concern to many of us both politically and economically, where either you believe it is a panacea for great things ahead or a fore-bearer of doom and gloom. But setting those things aside I will consider and revert - at least it will get the old grey matter working for a change.
  15. Today
  16. If the mind is not metaphysical where is it located, the brain? If that's the case the brain is mind and thus how can the brain supply energy to itself. Unless you know exactly where the mind is located in the brain? Them machines are not just moved using just thoughts the brain need a motor response for it to work. Therefore it's not just thoughts. If your interested, Dr Steve Novella discussed this on an episode of the skeptics guide to the universe, I think it's last year so around episode 605 or 604. The only study done using just thought with no motor responses, as in people with locked in syndrome, showed no better than approximately a fifty percent success rate. That is no better than chance so it's inconclusive at best. The study was done with patients with ASL who didn't learn to use technology prior to bring completely paralyzed. I will try and find a link.
  17. World Global economics predictions

    So on a stage of world economics, where does your country stand? Who is it dependant on, and how can it maintain a decent living environment for it's working class and it's entrepeneurs?
  18. If people were going to record something using a video recorder would you not think it prudent to be able to use a video recorder. The camera on my phone would do a better job than the people on the link you posted. I'll reiterate my point the links you provided hinted at people learning how to use robotics using specific brain patterns. My point was you can't teach people who are paralyzed or have locked in syndrome how to use the robotics because they don't receive motor responses. This has been proven in patient's with ALS who reach a certain point. It is not possible to only use the brain to control these robotics because they receive no motor responses. The links you posted all have people, or monkeys, learning how to use the machines who have not been completely paralyzed. Actually the links you posted sensationalise the actual work being done and do not state the actual state of people learning to use the robotics only that they have disabilities. So can you post some links refute my point? The links you posted regarding transfering consciousness are also really poor journalism did you even read them? All they are doing is recording brain patterns they never suggest transference of consciousness or thoughts they suggest a correlation between specific brain activity and thoughts they never state that specific brain patterns are a causation for thoughts, or dreams. Correlation is not causation. Three of the links are from the same study which is interesting but does not prove transference of thoughts or consciousness. They transferred two words using a tms system. The reseacher even said it themselves that transfering thoughts would probably be impossible without a massive leap in technology. But it's not impossible. So the links you posted prove you are incorrect regarding transference of thoughts and consciousness. The link regarding the dream recording is interesting, but if you understand scientific research you will surely admit it's nonsense. It has a grand total of three data points which successful results happened 60 percent of the time, this is slightly better than chance. If the amount of participants was greater and the successful results were greater it would be impressive. So it's really poor sensationalist journalism, and pretty speculative scientific research too. It proves nothing.

    Unionism in Britain probably has a different meaning. Example the full name of the Tory party is something like the Conservative and Unionist party where the unionist bit is a reference to maintaining the union of the 4 parts of the UK as far as I know. Unionist parties in Northern Ireland are all about ensuring that it remains within the UK as opposed to uniting with Ireland. As the economics things go in cycles - china gets a lot of outsourced work due to low wages - higher wage economies either need to specialise in jobs that china can't offer cheaply, or lower wages. As time progresses there will be little that china et al can't do - so low wage economies are on the horizon imo especially with automation.
  20. The BFRO and Gigantopithecus

    Loved it, I couldn't spell half the words on it, let alone question it..
  21. Feeling a need to expand my horizons

    Awesome.. do it.. The Journey awaits. Travel and expanding your horizons are the only things I know of where spending time and money and effort on it makes you a richer person for it. Once you've stepped into that wild unknown you become more than you were, you grow, you mature. You cant grow without stepping out of that comfort zone.. Just be sure to surround yourself with the right kind of people.
  22. Russia probes kick into high gear

    Everything Vlad - I have been a member for a short while now and know where most posters are coming from on most topics - with you I am often wrong footed. As I said its not a criticism - I think you play your hand well.
  23. Russia probes kick into high gear

    Hence my Russian Bot comment recently. But I do like that posters like Vlad exist. It is proof we are mostly independent thinkers capable of different un-trained ideas. Disclaimer. Do not be offended. This is a good thing. Some of us can not guess where you stand.
  24. Russia probes kick into high gear

    on what?
  25. Russia probes kick into high gear

    Vlad, to me your the kingpin of keeping us guessing where the hell you stand. Not a criticism by the way - just an observation on how you play the game.
