On preparation for the Real World™ via being unpleasant

When students enter the Real World, they will probably experience hail.

This means teachers should whip chunks of ice at their students. To prepare them.

Observations on the non-normal perspective on gendered interactions given by bisexuality (and probably other non-monosexualities)

The first observation: Jealousy is a common theme across relationships. There’s probably a TV Tropes page for it, but I’m not going down that rabbit hole tonight. But I imagine everyone is familiar with the stereotype of one (usually straight) partner forbidding the other from interacting with anyone of the same gender/sex as the forbidding partner. E.g. a girlfriend telling her boyfriend not to talk with any other women. I once saw someone suggest no men should ever spent significant time with any married women.

That sort of thing doesn’t really work for bisexuals. To forbid spending time with anyone else is just absurd. So the only option is to acknowledge that your partner may have friendships with people they may, if they’re not in a relationship already, date.

The second observation: At least according to what I’ve seen, monosexuals have an entire gender of people that are simply beyond the realm of romantic or sexual attraction. Thoughts of those varieties simply don’t come up seriously. (This probably has a lot to do with the possibility of the first observation.)  Bisexuals of course still have some people whom are not seriously considered those ways (because of age, familial relations, etc.), but the pool is much smaller. The assumed lines are much fewer, so more consideration is required.

In good news: Philadelphia’s top prosecutor is going against the trend of ruining as much life as possible

He’s suggesting “wild” ideas like offering very low sentences instead of caging people for extended periods of time. And recourse for people being wrongly punished.

 

Name five women from history

There’s something on social media going around about naming five women from history. I didn’t watch the video because I don’t like watching videos, but I thought of some women from history. The first five that came to mind were Mary Wollstonecraft, Princess Elisabeth, Hypatia, Mary Shelley, and Mary Magdalene.

I noticed three of the five are named Mary. The sixth that came to mind was Mary, mother of Christ, who is probably part of the reason for the popularity. SSA data indicates in the US Mary was the most popular woman’s name from 1880-1946, then wavered into the #2 position for a couple years, rose back to #1 for awhile, then started its decline in the 1960s. In 2009 it dropped out of the top 100.

(I had some trouble thinking of a fifth Mary. I came up with “whoever Maryland is named after”. I had to check Wikipedia to make sure that wasn’t a duplicate since I had two rather prominent religious figures on the list. But, Maryland is in fact named after a queen of France, who was named Maria, but the English liked to call her Mary, anyway.)

“Protestants complain, with justice, of the hardship put upon them by Roman Catholics, in requiring them to prove that bread and wine is not flesh and blood.” (Essays on the Active Powers of Man, Essay 1 Chapter 2)

Brian Reynolds
“That’s indeed a principle I regularly use (and espouse), but the original credit for it goes to none other than the illustrious Sid Meier. I often tell the story of how he took me aside as a young designer (when he caught me repeatedly changing something by 10%, I’m sure) back in the early 90s when we were working on Colonization, and it’s probably through the retelling of the story that it got associated with me. The point of the rule is to change something so that you can actually feel the difference right away. That gives you a much clearer idea of the workings of the variable you are changing, and saves you getting lost in the weeds wondering if you have even had an effect (or worse, seeing a change where none has really been accomplished, perhaps because of an unusual series of random numbers).”

“I try and leave ad block off for sites that I like and white list those that I visit, but sometimes they just go too far. I love Ars Technica and Rock Paper Shotgun for instances, but for fucks sake, their massive and distracting ads are just too god damn much. I am willing to help support sites that I like, but not to the point where the site becomes useless.
The only thing worse than obnoxious ads are site that autoplay video. The absolute worst is fucking CNN. Not only does it autoplay a video when you click on fucking text story, but the fucking video chases you! I am clearly trying to read the fucking words, do you know how hard it is to read the words when there is a video chasing you and making a bunch of god damn noise?
It is insane. I can’t use the Internet without an ad blocker and flash blocker. There are porn sites that are less obnoxious with their ads than some main stream sites. People say that if we all ad block all of those sites are going to die and you know what… fuck it. I don’t care. I would rather go back to an unprofessional web. I would rather the web be armature hour with only people putting up stuff because they want to an accepting a small loss, than have “professional” sites that are impossible to visit because they assault you with ads so bad you can’t read the fucking content.
Seriously, I am done. Ad block for everything. Sites that I visit regularly get white listed, but they go right the fuck back on the black list if they assault my face with obnoxious moving ads. If this breaks the Internet, fine. I don’t care. I would rather a “broken” amateur web like the old days than the abominations of moving and obnoxious websites that we have now. Burn the fucking village to save the people.”

“I’m a trained social worker after thinking I could be useful after my own drink problems – turns out social workers are hopeless twats and made me want to pass the vodka to my clients inbetween bemoaning the world together.

“Trump voters fucked the goat, and so everything they say should be framed within the fact that they are goatfuckers. “Oh, you have an opinion on health care? Sorry, you fucked a goat. I don’t give a shit about your goat-fucking opinion,” we should think. ”
“This is the newest wrinkle in the genre: What do stupid people think about something they don’t understand at all?”

Bertrand Russell
“By the law of excluded middle, either “A is B” or “A is not B ” must be true. Hence either “the present King of France is bald” or “the present King of France is not bald” must be true. Yet if we enumerated the things that are bald, and then the things that are not bald, we should not find the present King of France in either list. Hegelians, who love a synthesis, will probably conclude that he wears a wig.” (On Denoting)
“In all affairs it’s a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.”
“”Every school, with hardly any exception, has as one of its objects the deception of children. They teach them patriotism, to salute the flag. But the flag is a murder symbol, and the state is a pirate ship, a gang of murderers who have come together. When they salute the flag, they salute the symbol of bloody murder.” (1963)

“All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don’t subscribe to any of that. It’s all just music.

Alvin Plantinga
“According to the inherited lore of the epistemological tribe, the JTB account enjoyed the status of epistemological orthodoxy until 1963, when it was shattered by Edmund Gettier… Of course there is an interesting historical irony here: it isn’t easy to find many really explicit statements of a JTB analysis of knowledge prior to Gettier. It is almost as if a distinguished critic created a tradition in the very act of destroying it.”

Terry Pratchett
“They were indeed what was known as ‘old money’, which meant that it had been made so long ago that the black deeds which had originally filled the coffers were now historically irrelevant. Funny, that: a brigand for a father was something you kept quiet about, but a slave-taking pirate for a great-great-great-grandfather was something to boast of over the port. Time turned the evil bastards into rogues, and rogue was a word with a twinkle in its eye and nothing to be ashamed of.” (Making Money)

“When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed.”
“A lot of people don’t want to make their own decisions. They’re too scared. It’s much easier to be told what to do. Americans talk so much about being individualistic, but they don’t want you to be an individual because if you think for yourself then you’re not going to be a part of any trend that they want you to be a part of. They don’t want you to think for yourself. They tell you they do so that you’re happy and you’re stupid and you’re sheep. Anybody intelligent enough to realize what America is, is not going to sit around and do nothing about it. They’re going to be the same way that I am. They’re going to be the same way our fans are. They’re going to be pissed. These people are artists. These people are musicians. They’re taking it out and trying to express it that way. The rest of the world, who are just willing to accept it, are gonna be doing their everyday jobs, and they’re going to be trapped in a rut, and they’re never gonna see it until the day they die, and they’re gonna be disappointed when they don’t go to heaven anyway ’cause they were too stupid to realize that it’s not going to happen.”
“We live in a society of victimization, where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves.”
“I never said to be like me, I say to be like you and make a difference.”
“I was not allowed to put the paintings on the cover of the record! Our anticipation was not to create album artwork. We wanted to create a collaboration, and from that came the idea to use it for the cover, because we did not consider the Golden Age of Grotesque to be limited to an album. An album is very limited with censorship, and with time constraints and space constraints. We did intend for the white and black images of me with the ears to be the front and back.
I feel the black one is very American, and the white one is very European. The black one is somewhat more evil, and the white one is kind of innocent. I actually think that the white one, visually, strikes me as more evil. It’s like a Pierrot. You know, American versus European. The entire time that I did it, I don’t think anyone mentioned the blackface and the relevance of it. The relevance of it is the exploitation of a performer, or an artist. The Mickey Mouse was invocative because of the hat, and a lot of people feared that it would be a lawsuit from Disney, but it does not even, in it’s fullest frame, show both ears. The hat that I ended up making is very similar, but it’s asymmetrical, because I have a real problem with symmetry. I like things to be different on both sides, like my brain. The white one, on the other side, is like the child.

All I can say about it is I’m glad that it makes it into the collection of images that represent me as best as it could. I think that it just scratches the surface of what Gottfried and I could do together. Also I think it was most appreciated and understood for it’s biggest quality and it’s biggest political impact.

Like I said, people can take it anyway they want. People took it as serious as it could be in Europe, particularly in France and Paris, and in Japan because they saw my commentary on America. They saw me as much as people see Mickey Mouse as an American symbol. You cover your mouth with blackface, which really represents a franchise, moneymaking, and slave creation of entertainment, that isn’t even human. That’s an animal, on top of a podium that is exaggerated – a comedy form of fascism. It sounds very American to me. It sounds like a Happy Meal. That’s not to say that’s the only way you need to look at it.”
“Capitalism has made it this way, old-fashioned fascism will take it away.”
“First of all, my theory that I’ve really been thinking about since I had so much interaction with Christianity after doing ‘Antichrist Svperstar’, is that Christ was the blue-print for celebrity. He was the first celebrity, or rock star if you want to look at it that way, and he became this image of sexuality and suffering. He’s literally marketed – a crucifix is no different than a concert shirt in some ways. I think for America, in my lifetime, John F. Kennedy kind of took the place of that in some ways. He became lifted up as this icon and this Christ figure. I started to, in my weird drugged version of Hollywood, dream up a world where these dead stars are really saints. Jackie O[nassis] is kind of like Mary Immaculate. That’s what I was thinking when I was writing the album, and I hinted that in a lot of song like ‘Posthuman’.”

“Today I received approximately the 11,504th email this year from a person telling me that they don’t know what to do with their life. And like all of the others, this person asked me if I had any ideas of what they could do, where they could start, where to “find their passion.”
And of course, I didn’t respond. Why? Because I have no fucking clue. If you don’t have any idea what to do with yourself, what makes you think some jackass with a website would? I’m a writer, not a fortune teller.”

Josh Martin
“There’s nothing wrong with condescending to someone if you really are better than them. How do you know if you’re better? Compare your cars. Money in the bank. Dick sizes. Do all that, and if you have the most or best of those things, then feel free to talk down to them. Treat them as an angry parent would a misbehaving child. It’s the only way to teach them not to be such a loser.”

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.

And even if he is not romantic personally he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

“Immanuel Kant was a very boring man.”
“These newer, more naive forms of Scientism, also have a strong tendency to call philosophy “a big waste of time”, “pointless arguing”, “nothing but semantics”, etc. Rhetorically, they tend to say that non-empirical ideas have no way to guarantee they are true, so are pointless to talk about. This is a rather ridiculous point to make, since their entire movement is based around spreading a certain set of non-empirical, philosophical norms, which they apparently don’t feel it necessary to open up to criticism. What they mostly seem to mean is, assuming everyone agrees with us on the important philosophic questions, such as atheism, utilitarianism, capitalism, eliminiative materialism, etc., then we don’t need anything but science. Well, this is a maybe true in a strange way, insofar that if everyone agreed on every philosophical position, i.e. if philosophy was solved, then we probably wouldn’t need philosophy. Philosophy, however, has not been solved. Furthermore, if it is going to be solved, it certainly won’t be solved by a bunch of people who don’t even read or engage in philosophy. The real goal is often just to draw a border around what we should or shouldn’t question, because they don’t want any of the fundamental aspects of society to change. And, well, people who don’t want society to change often also find themselves not wanting people to even think about changing society.”
“Actually, maybe that’s where Sartre got the idea, so maybe Dostoyevsky is Sartre’s muse. A lot of his books are kind of just French retellings of Dostoyevky’s very Russian novels. They drink wine instead of vodka. They have ennui instead of murder people. That kind of thing.”
