Cowboy Bebop opening! Apparently people have opinions about this, but I think it looks cool and awesome all around.

Not my cup of tea, and I worry that glorifying violence desensitizes us to many forms of societal violence. Consider whether your entertainment diet might be influencing your ability to imagine non-violent solutions to societal and personal problems. Just a thought.
Having grown up in the midst of multiple moral panics from video games to D&D to MTV to sex-on-TV... and having not once applied some kind of hyper violence to personal financial, political, or relationship issues I'm going to say that this sort of concern is given FAR more weight than its worth.

Yes, yes. There are people who have a hard time differentiating fantasy from reality. Right now, we call those "MAGA." Or Goop customers. But something like Cowboy Beebop isn't the cause of that.

Coucou tout le mondeu... :)
De retour de trois jours de forêt, j'ai besoin de vous, pour identifier quelques plantes.
Il y a tellement de diversité ! À chaque fois j'en découvre de nouvelles, belles, sauvages, et... inconnues.



Ce champignon rose, sur une souche de châtaignier. Jamais vu. Le pied est orange, spongieux... Pas de lamelles, pas de collerette...






Un buisson de petites fleurs bleu-mauve. La fleur elle-même a la même forme qu'une cymbalaire, sauf que ça n'en est pas. Ce n'est pas de la menthe non plus (pas de parfum).




Celle-là, c'est une Morelle Noire, ça je sais.






Mais celle-là ?... Elle y ressemble, mais les baies sont rouges, pas noires, et elle n'a pas les mêmes feuilles...




Et enfin celle-ci, qui pousse un peu partout, qui a un fort parfum, heu... résineux (?), médicinal, un peu comme la tanaisie... Quand on la serre dans les mains, elle les laisse un peu pégueuses, avec ce parfum si prenant.




Merci à vous... :)

Oula, moi je cale là, surtout avec la cousine de la morelle... (peut-être morelle douce-amère qui a des baies rouges ?) as-tu essayé de les proposer à plantnet ? (appli sur smartphone et iphone). Ça me file des bons coups de main pour les plantes de la garrigue.

@Pierre Pujuguet, oui, c'est la douce-amère (voir les coms dans le post original). :)

Adventure Seed: Legacy of C.A.I.N.
We've had some really serious Adventure Seeds over the last few months. So let's lighten things up and run a one shot that touches on the consents of consciousness, the nature of intelligence and life, and exploitation, then asks you to decide if the villain has gone too far.

Do Chairs Exist?


A surprisingly good Vsauce video:

https://youtube.com/watch?v=fXW-QjBsruE

I'd suggest some related questions:
  • What is "chair"?
  • What is "existence"?
  • What is "is"?
How much of existence simply rests on a sufficiency of interest on our part?

There've been a few stabs at disucssing this, I'd like to see if we can't perhaps pull off a bit more here. Do please watch the video first so as to be on the same ground.

Miscellaneous observations not critical to discussion though of possible utility thereof in your correspondent's humble opinion at the present moment


Numerous interesting and useful concepts:
  • Ontology
  • Composition and Constitution. Simples
  • Properties
  • Relations
  • Sortals
  • Entailment
  • Ontological Reductionism
  • Ontological Realism
  • Ontological Antrialism
  • Ontological Innocence
  • Gunky vs. Junky universes
  • Application Condition
  • Pseudo-Questions
Also a quite impressive reading list. I've linked in Worldcat entries for books.

Ok, perhaps that was convoluted.

Look, good old CSP is a scientist (and philosopher and mathematician and logician) and he identifies a specific kind if tension in the modern, scientific pov that should be quite familiar to us all:

When you commit to following the evidence and the best science you can ,your conclusions inevitably change over time. It's a hallmark if science that it doesn't remain static. It is not dogma, or at least aims to avoid being dogma.

Example: the recommendations of the best of epidemiology changes over time as new evidence and understandings come to light. This is as it should be, I think we can all agree.

But then how should we conceive of today's epidemiological recommendations? To trust that today's recommendations won't change is irrational. In fact we should hope they change because of new and better science.

To expect that they won't change is to believe that today's epidemiology is as good as it can be, that there is no room for improvement or advancement. Which, I don't believe that and I don't think epidemiologists believe that.

But interestingly enough, a lot of science fanboys (for lack of a better term) do tend to think this way. "We know it all!" They seem to proclaim. But if we did science would be dead.

So, weirdly, to be a scientific sort of person means never fully trusting today's conclusions even though we act upon today's conclusions. It's a particular kind of faith, actually.

Welcome to #Checkin for Sunday, September 25, 2021!


Here's another celebration I've discovered for the first time - September 25th is World Dream Day. It's apparently a day when we indulge in visualizing making dreams a reality. I bet there are many here who have made dreams come true. Here in #Checkin we also like being random so, feel free to discuss anything that comes to mind associated with dreams.




For those #newhere, if you want to know what the heck #checkin is about, click here. You’ll also get to meet the current and alumni mods here. Rod’s avatar will be there soon!

@Su Ann Lim The phrase may be mine but the idea is certainly not original. Dreams (not hopes or ambitions but sleeping dreams) happens when the mind is on "idle." It is a wonderful time when the mind can process whatever is of concern - happy/sad, challenges, puzzles, fears. The really nice part is that this process happens in a leisurely way.
Dream, the most terrible of the Eternals.

A discussion about being rich.

My story. When were we trying to have a family we agreed one child is go back to work, 2 kids I would stay home until kindergarten because I was the lower wage earner and daycare would have taken all my income. We started saving and paying off debt to move to one income…being able to make that decision puts us in the 'rich' category regardless of how we feel about it.
For many years I've describe our circumstance at middle-class or perhaps even upper-middle-class. But if my dad were alive and could see my circumstance and knew what my monthly income was he would say we were rich. Yet here is the odd thing. I really don't feel at ease to overspend on things like McDonalds or going out to a movie. For many years I have gotten an annual raise. But it is often offset, sometimes more, by cost increases, especially in regards to health insurance. We've never been tempted to send our daughters to a private school. But Madison did go to St. John's Great Books College. That was elite and expensive. It felt like a squeeze but we got though it. Cheers, -Randy
I think part of not feeling rich is the childhood expectation that rich people have no financial restrictions (aka squeeze) without understanding there are always restrictions, it's just how we feel about them. We have a very comfortable retired life BUT we live in s small city rather than where I would choose to live…a swede in not interested in accepting.

I think a lot of people offering financial advice to poor people are not poor themselves. They come up with these cost saving measures that rely on having extra to start with.

TL;DR: LAPD DGAF

‘I can’t let him get away with this’: Asian woman punched in LA chases attacker on video

Chen said she then saw the man drop his children — who were allegedly present during the attack — at the same learning center where her godson goes. She said teachers at the center took her in to help with her bleeding mouth, while her friend went after the man to confront him.

Chen said she obtained information about her attacker from the learning center. She identified him as 43-year-old Jason Raich.
I hope they told him to come get his kids and never come back there again!
The aftermath: The incident left Chen with multiple physical injuries and mental trauma. She filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) at West L.A., which promised to “contact her once a detective is assigned” to her case.
IOW the second Tuesday of next week
Chen said she was diagnosed with a concussion, lip laceration, dental pain and multiple tooth root fractures, with one already dead and needing a root canal treatment. “The other two front teeth might die tomorrow or years from now and will need root canals and veneers, or extraction and implant,” she added.

“He thought he wasn’t caught on surveillance camera and could get away with it because I’m this little Asian girl alone in my own car,” Chen said. “ [He]kept telling me to ‘Call 911!’ and that I am harassing him. Calling me a liar. Calling my friend ‘crazy white chick.’”

Chen told NextShark that she feels embarrassed by releasing a video of herself in such a vulnerable state, but she said she’s seeking justice for the entire Asian community in doing so. “Asians, especially women, need to speak up. People need to know what he did and not let him get away with it. He has not been arrested yet. Justice needs to be served, or else who knows who will be his next victim,” she said.

Chen is seeking an elevated hate crime charge for what the LAPD currently considers a misdemeanor battery

Ein ganz großartiger Film. Mein Favorit der Berlinale 2019. Petrunya hätte meiner Meinung nach ein Kinohit werden können, was aber vom Filmverleih und schläfrigen Programmkino-Macher_innen total versemmelt wurde. Nun gibt's ihn zum ersten Mal synchronisiert od. mit Untertiteln in der ARTE-Mediathek.

Gott existiert, ihr Name ist Petrunya

Es ist Dreikönigsfest in einer mazedonischen Kleinstadt, und traditionell tauchen die jungen Männer nach dem Kreuz, das der orthodoxe Priester in den Fluss wirft. Nach einer weiteren erfolglosen Bewerbung springt die frustrierte 32-jährige Petrunya dem Kreuz hinterher ... - Regisseurin Teona Strugar Mitevska wurde von einer wahren Begebenheit zu ihrem Film (2019) inspiriert.

Ein schöner Film! Hab ich mir gestern abgeschaut. Hab sofort an die Affäre mit dem Memminger Stadtbach denken müssen. Gesellschaftlich ist eben Deutschland nicht weiter als Nordmazedonien.
In bestimmten Gegenden auf jeden Fall. ;)
