@Ticket For EpicAsked why don't they teach philosophy anymore?

 

The simplest answer is probably no one wanted to study it. There does seem to be a movement away from the art and science of critical thinking towards the 'correct way to think'. I studied to be a lawyer before I came out as an engineer. As such I was exposed to a fair of philosophy and the rat of reasoning. I have always found that my legal training was by far the important to my career in wireless engineering. Yes one needed to understand the math and science. However, identifying and resolving problems is the essence of a legal education. There is substantial value in the traditional liberal arts education.

 

I will admit that philosophy was difficult and a struggle to understands there is not the right answer only better or worse answers

Well today was a wonderful day. Finished work 2 hrs early and only minimal bs to deal with lol. Finishing early also means I get to start my four day weekend early! 
 

The best news of all, the first day of Pride month also marks 365 glorious days of being ME! I’ll have to post a comparison picture a little later.

"Correct thinking" reminds me of the novel 1984. Miranda, I completely agree with everything you said. Learning how to think critically is indeed the most important of education.

 

I also think it's interesting to note that virtually all totalitarian regimes--from despotism to fascism to communism all adopt "correct thinking," "group thinking," or something similar as a central part of their core ideologies. Just sayin'...

Good morning!

 

I joke that I used to emote like Spock and on HRT I emote like Shatner. 

I am not sure I emote like either Spock or Shatner/Kirk, but I am liking the new Star Trek with Christopher Pike. It is like the original pilot, only better!

Good morning 

 

I became very frustrated with our lender last night.  They insist that information they need must be in a specific format .  It’s from the IRS website.  I follow their link to the letter, all it does is take me to what I already sent them.  
 

@Jandi there wasn’t anything wrong with the word I used when taken in context.  Changing it to the P word changes the meaning completely.  I suppose I should have used Helm-o-meter.  But sometimes my brain doesn’t come up with the right word.   In any event, to the censorship team, I was using cockpit as in where it Captain and first officer control a plane or sailboat.  Not as a vulgar term for a body part.

 

anyway. Please change it to Helm-o-meter.  Thank you!

Been enjoying the heck out of the new show. The characters are fun, it's not just focusing on part of the crew and Nurse Chapel... If I'm being honest, the way that character is written absolutely turns me on. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but she probably thought that before.

 

Hugs!

Americans don't seem concerned with using mythology to heal themselves anymore—hatred is such a weak crutch.

I do like the new Star Trek. I cannot wait till the next Episode is available. Oh, wait. It is Thursday and new ones come out Thursdays. 😁  Nurse Chapel is very nice on the eyes.

 

As for you being nuts. We have known that for years. Love ya sweetie.

 

@Willow While your -CENSORED- is paperwork. Mine is just finding a house in our approval range. The two we saw we were out bid on. the couple that are. are two small and/or dumps. I'm sure VA wouldn't go for.

On the eyes? I guess, I'm demi though. What got me going is her character's slightly off-kilter mad science personality. She can experiment on me ANYTIME.

I've been curious to see that new Star Trek, but I still haven't gotten around to the third season of Discovery yet. I've assumed Discovery leads into Strange New Worlds, or is there not really any need to catch up with Discovery before starting the new one?

@DavieIn my opinion, we no longer hold our self accountable for what we believe and why we believe it. One can only have an open mind, if one is willing and capable of changing their beliefs. Political ideology is moving closer to a religious belief such that no amount of evidence will change one's belief. It is also becoming more extreme on both the right and the left. The most extreme voices are the most vocal and demonize ANY dissent as disinformation or antiscience or morally evil. They speak only for their benefit and not for others. It has become increasingly difficult to take a position that does not fit with extremist position. Why can't we argue our positions on the merit anymore?

 

@Marcie JensenExtreme politics whether from the left or the right end up in the same totalitarian space.

cycling back to the nails thread, dipped is the way to go.  I just get them trimmed pretty short and a french nail finish.  they hold up to just about anything. Of course, you have to get them filled in about every 3-4 weeks. 

 

I'm all in on the new star trek!

 

Happy Pride everyone.

@miz mirandaI could not agree more. Thought that was clear in my post. Sorry for the lack of clarity. I'm almost certain I included both Nazis and fascists as well as communists. If I did not, my apologies.

I'm in St. Petersburg FL for the week.  They really know how to do Pride here.  Flags and banners everywhere and events publicized all over.  Here's a nighttime look of the Museum of Fine Art building all lit up from our balcony.

No need to catch up on Discovery. Star Trek, Brave New Worlds. Is set before Star Trek, TOS. Capt. Christopher Pick is in Command.

Good morning 

 

I hope everyone has plans for their weekend.  Yes Kymmie I know that excludes you, your weekend comes early.

 

well, I guess I finally managed to meet the bank’s requirements.  They haven’t said anything more and they did have me review a new closing statement.  Of course it was wrong.  They failed to include a thousand dollar deposit I paid to the builder and they are charging me for the first year home owners insurance when I already paid for it, another $1100.  They were supplied proof of both of those payments.  Hey bank, money doesn’t grow on trees you know!

 

@KymmieL sorry you are having so much trouble matching your requirements and not getting out bid.  It’s a tough market out there.  Not enough supply to meet the demand.  Any chance of buying a piece of land and putting your own place on it?  Like a manufactured home?  Our building a small home designed to be expanded over time?


I'm not going to group tonight.  It’s predicted to be stormy and I’ve got other things to take care of in preparation to moving off the boat and into our home.  It’s going to be a busy week.

 

my wife is having a bad reaction to some medication.  She stopped taking it as soon as we realized it but our Dr is away and we don’t want to go to the ER and sit there for 8 hours all for naught.

 

we went to the beach yesterday.  When we were leaving a young man asked if we would like him to pull our beach cart through the sand.  Admittedly it can be tough.  I politely declined.  Then a second slightly older person asked to help us.  This time I thought why not? After all he is just being polite to two woman so I replied very gratefully. And thanked him several times.  After we got to the car my wife asked, aren’t you embarrassed to accept help from a man?  My response was that that was why I had politely declined the first young man, and had done so the previous times it was offered.  But had realized that if they had seen a 73 year old man pulling it they may have offered the help so why not accept the offer.  And I was grateful as it’s hard getting through the soft dry sand.

 

they just don’t make beach cards with wheels wide enough to ride on top of the sand.  You have to get a fishing cart that doesn’t fold up if you want that.  The wheels on them are a foot in diameter and 6 inches wide.  Made out of welded aluminum and cost around $600 verses $150.

 

we bought a new beach umbrella this one is really well made and should last a long time.

 

guess I’m done for today. Times a wasting.  
 

let me know your thoughts on accepting help.

 

Willow

Wow, @JustineM ! It's not so much the change in your appearance, but your demeanor - you look so much happier & natural.

Love love love Strange New Worlds! When the talk of Spock started, my thought was how much I like the Spock of Discovery & SNW. He seems so sweet and disarming - in a Vulcan way, of course. 

 

I also really like Erica Ortegas, the helmsperson. Lol, probably because her personality and look seem rather nonbinary to me. Gender envy? 😏

If you've seen Discovery seasons 1 & 2, then you have all the context you need to segue to Strange New Worlds. It's soo good!

Just got back from Speech Therapy. Got the snot beat out of me by Mother Nature. I I figured a nice day so why not ride. The ride over to Cheyenne was beautiful and Halfway home was too. Then the defecation hit the rotary oscillator. I've ridden in the ran which is no big deal. But hail is another story. Even though it was small it still stung when I got hit. I rode though it.

 

Hugs,

      This is irrelevant. There is a lot of diversity amongst Christians, as every Cristian is quick to point out whenever someone accuses Christianity of being homophobic, but the not allowing Christians to talk about Christ in public would immediately cause every Christian in the country to start screaming that the Chrisian religion is being eradicated. A Jew who saw himself as primarily a German citizen would have still been killed in the holocaust. Primary identity does not matter, only whether or not you are part of the group.   It also makes life difficult, and makes you feel alone, as any community interaction will break concealment. A community is important because being trans comes with difficulties unique to trans people, you can't ask a cis person about stuff like binders, and having to deal with problems only you have that you can't discuss with anyone else is dangerous.   Do you live in Florida? Ron DeSantis is the current favorite amongst republicans for president. He is isolating Floridian trans people to the point that many are just leaving.   By weak state, do you mean stopping States from enacting laws that are harmful? Taking away power from the State? In that case, I agree! Let's make a broad law, one that applies to all the States, stopping all legislature from excluding on basis of gender, sexuality, and gender identity on all levels of government. Something on a national level. What would you call that? Maybe... Federal law. That sounds catchy, right?   For anyone who didn't catch on, the italics were a joke.

      I'm not sure this thread had much do do with gun control in the beginning.   I don't know if there is much to be done anyway.  Let's face it, guns are already here.  Perhaps it would be better if that wasn't the case, but… I think  mass shootings are a separate issue.    The subject is more about using the powers of the government to persecute a minority.
    • MiraF
      From an article about mass school shootings: " While seemingly random, experts say these shootings typically have one thing in common: they mostly happen in small, rural towns.   Back in 2018, the Associated Press reported that of the 10 deadliest school shootings in the U.S., all but one happened in towns with fewer than 75,000 residents. Most of them were in cities with less than 50,000 people. Uvalde's population fits these criteria, sitting at 15,860. " The reason people don't see shootings in their rural neiborhoods is that you are in small towns. LA accounts for 10% of the California population, and rural towns account for 6% of the population. If there is a mass shooting in LA, 10% of Californians get to say, "there was a mass shooting in my city", and if there is a mass shooting in a rural town, 0% of Californians get to say, "there was a mass shooting in my town", so even though there are more mass shootings per capita in rural areas, less people realize this is happening in places like theirs. Just because it hasn't happened in your town doesn't mean mass shootings happen less in towns like yours, in fact they happen more often.   Source of the quote: https://bakersfieldnow.com/news/local/why-mass-school-shootings-continue-to-happen-in-small-towns

      Yeah.  I totally get it. I'm pretty sure this was what was really going on.   This happened a lot.   I mean, how could you not?
    • MiraF
      False. There are higher rates of mass shootings in US states with more relaxed gun control laws: https://www.bmj.com/company/newsroom/higher-rates-of-mass-shootings-in-us-states-with-more-relaxed-gun-control-laws/ If what you said is true, how come there are far fewer mass shootings in countries with robust gun control laws? Myth: Gun violence happens everywhere. The NRA often points to incidents of gun violence abroad to argue gun laws are ineffective and such widespread gun violence is not unique to America. However, the evidence tells a different story. Fact: While most countries experience occasional incidents of gun violence, the gun violence epidemic is a uniquely American experience. The United States has the highest level of gun violence across developed nations, with a gun homicide rate 26 times greater than that of peer nations.14 This number is even higher among young Americans, who experience a gun homicide rate 49 times greater than that of other developed nations. Source: https://www.americanprogress.org/article/debunking-myths-the-gun-lobby-perpetuates-following-mass-shootings/   PS: Myth: Mass shooters are likely to target gun-free zones. Gun lobbyists often deploy this myth to deter legislative efforts to limit gun carrying in certain locations that are considered particularly sensitive or unsuitable for guns, such as schools, houses of worship, or government buildings. However, the overwhelming majority of fatal mass shootings in the United States occur in locations where guns are allowed or not explicitly banned, such as in private homes or public locations. Fact: Most mass shootings occur in areas where guns are permitted. The gun lobby often claims that 98 percent of mass shootings occur in gun-free zones, but research has thoroughly debunked this. Of the 156 mass shootings that occurred from 2009 to 2016, only 10 percent occurred in gun-free zones. The majority of these shootings—63 percent—occurred in private homes.

      Always a Star Trek fan, and I grew up with TOS, TNG, and DS9.  Enterprise came along when I was a teenager, and I enjoy the recent series that are being produced.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      The young vote Democrat because their schools taught them to do so since the 90's, and higher education is controlled by leftists.  No surprise there.  When the typical Republican candidate mostly pleases the aging Boomers and has little to offer the young, they aren't going to do well.  "MAGA" doesn't mean anything to those who aren't old enough to remember when America was great....
