Sweatshops help maximise the amount of children that can be granted life by making it more economical to have children, just saying.
3. ### The Lottery and Gambling Thread

IIRC then almost everyone I saw in that neighbourhood was of caucasian race. Too bad for me then , delivering those Nationale Postcode Loterij present packets constitutes hours of extra work, though it is only once per year. But it then may take a weak to deliver them all.

But if that farmer owns 10 privet jets and uses them to fly between continents every day then his foot print will still be bigger than the vegan's. So evidently being a farmer with his own livestock does not help to reduce foot print either. Also, your farmer would still have a smaller foot...

Yes it is, because you are basically claiming "veganism is not sufficient to minimise footprint, therefore it is not necessary to minimise footprint". That minimising footprint requires more than just going vegan has nothing to do with whether it does require going vegan. Some things require...

You said that eating avocados is bad because of the footprint and that thus vegans kill animals too, so I countered your argument by telling why veganism is actually necessary to minimise footprint. This was a good point that turns your original argument against you because it showed that eating...
7. ### The Lottery and Gambling Thread

Lottery is for suckers. Even if they are fair (which seemingly no participant ever checks), you still have a negative expected reward. Lottery is literally just hoping for dumb luck, you do something which is dumb because it has negative expected reward, and then you hope to get rewarded for...

In that case your dog would be wrong, because the answer is 0 and 0 is not nothing. In Peano numerals 0 is the base case. There 0=0, 1=S0, 2=SS0; where S is the successor function. If you have nothing instead of 0 then you cannot make a numeral as there will be nothing to apply the successor...

This is non-sequitur. Being a vegan has nothing to do with whether you use Bitcoin, planes, SUV's, windmills, etc. The total footprint is equal to the footprint of your food + the footprint of the other things you do. Thus to minimise your total footprint you need to minimise the footprint from...

Eating meat is a guarantee to eating unhealthy as meat itself is unhealthy. People with a B12 deficiency are probably much better off just taking a supplement. That can work but in order to produce cheap eggs or diary you need to kill and torture animals. The male chicks need to go into the...

In order to produce meat, you need to raise animals. In order to raise animals, you need to feed them. In order to feed them, you need to grow plants. And because meat eaters get only a small amount of the energy of the plants due to most of the energy being wasted by the animal, a meat eater...

The game looks good, are you still planning to port it to the Pyra?

It just occurred to me that if copying copyrighted work is theft then fair use is the legalisation of theft. It would be like saying that people may not steal a whole car to drive in but may steal just a tire if they want to use it exclusively for things other than driving. But fair use is not...

I am literally a second-class citisen in my own country right now. Besides, Orwellian regimes get going gradually. The covid-19 regime is just getting started and will get much worse. But when that time comes it will too late to prepare.

Hey, what do mRNA injections have to do with the 3 units of temperature?
17. ### The Caring Corner :)

I saw this regime coming years in advance. I was right about the duration of the regime, the severity, the injections being coerced, the scarcity of goods, the uninjected becoming a second-class citisens, and many more things. Very rarely have I been surprised during these last 2 years. That is...

Kelvin is the only one of those which makes sense. E.g. 5 Kelvin*2 = 10 Kelvin while 5° Celsius*2 = 283.15° Celsius. And Fahrenheit of course works no more sensible than Celsius.

You said that it had become poitical these days, but that cannot be because it was already political and thus unable to become political.

That he is using Wikipedia for something political.
