Various quotes. I don't claim originality here, as nothing is new under the sun. But, poignant.
- Most of mankind's problems would be solved by a drastic reduction in the population
- Putting dishes in the dishwasher is not a math problem
- A good day is a long jog, a meal of fresh steak, garlic, and a lot of work getting done
- It is easier to destroy than it is to create. Don't destroy.
Self Driving Cars
- Autonomous vehicles will never be reliable. Humans can't even get "traffic lights" right, let alone self driving cars.
This one is a bit of a madlib, but it shows the ludicrous nature of our entrepreneurs. Underestimating how difficult a problem can be. The phrase "traffic lights", could be replaced with a number of other of similar items that are much simpler than self driving cars, yet have completely been messed up in society.
- "Keeping humans from over populating the planet"
- "School systems"
- "Corruption out of our elected officials"
- "Keeping from Poisoning the environment"
The idea that humans will be able to figure out self driving cars, or speech to text: computer tasks that have eluded people's efforts since computers became popular... It's as viable as traveling to another planet. No amount of processing power can replace a human being. Apples and oranges. Computers are tools for humans, but they are not always replacements for humans.
What if learning was more important than grades?
Strange Things Humans Eat
Be skeptical of everything on earth. Why? Because people eat cereal. Cereal is a horrible food, for the following reasons:
- it is a grain, yet humans are anatomically carnivores
- it's loaded with sugar
- it has a number of vitamins (which is an arbitrary name for various compounds - there's no such thing as a vitamin. lies. all the nutrients you need are from animal meat.) added to it.
All that withstanding, there is a dedicated aisle at the grocery store to this poison food. Be skeptical of everything.
"But wait, Vitamins are real, it's backed by medical science, and everything they say is truthful...", you might say. My response is: Real to who. Wikipedia defines vitamins as "A vitamin is an organic molecule ... that is an essential micronutrient which an organism needs in small quantities for the proper functioning of its metabolism." According to who? What organisms are we talking about? Are these human organisms? Plant organisms? What about the bacteria living at the bottom of the ocean that subsist off of methane? Do these get enough vitamin D? Must not, since the sun doesn't shine through. Vitamins are bullshit. Yes, there are certain substances you need to survive, but they can not be conveniently labeled vitamins. The label (vitamins) is the lie. Eat meat, and you will be healthy. Take vitamin supplements, and you might poison yourself.
They call it Windows, because it gives a company in Seattle, a Window into your computer, through the internet.
They call it intel, because it gives the us gub intel on users (via management engine).
I mean - it's in the name...! It couldn't be more obvious.
Microsoft is a lot like Nazi Germany. But instead of "gas all the jews", it's "gas all the free software folks"
Engineers since antiquity: The more complex and intertwined you make a machine, the more points of failure, and eventually it will collapse like a house of cards. Simple is better. Systemd: More lines of code, more features. More complex is better.
