Humans Need Not Apply If you can't be bothered to watch the whole video, it's basically about massive replacement of human labour in many jobs, causing massive unemployment. It's a good video though.

Thoughts on this?

Personally, I don't see it as a huge problem. The free market will most likely solve the problem by having a period of high unemployment and then in the next generation it wont be a problem, as we will focus our education on the things that machinery cannot do yet. The cost of living will fall as the cost of production for most things will drastically fall, and sustaining those that cannot get a job will become easier.

Overall, definitely a problem, but not the insurmountable problem this video and some people make it out to be.

I think it's interesting. This guy is obviously a materialist though and I to some extend believe in Christian metaphysics. Until we can finally really fully chart intuition, creativity, emotion, empathy and love I will not say that they will be as good as us in things.

I know I sound cooky, but that's my belief and I'm allowed to have it. Yo, can I call you whats? Yeah alright, whats, whats the whats whats uh... nevermind, I'll just say what-ley.


That brings me to the next point. Have you seen Wall-E? I think it's a good prediction for how we shouldn't let robots do everything for us, lest we become fat, uncreative slobs

I would ask: 'why me?', but it's 3AM in the US and we're obviously the only ones on the board at the moment.

I'm only awake now because I'm out of college, but not working yet so I've let my sleep schedule turn to absolute shit. Moving in with my parents temporarily at the end of the week, so that sleep schedule issue should re-stabilize.

ive been this way for a while and i dont even have a damn highschool ed im 18 btw i got banned from my countys school system because someone started some rumors about me since i never talked to anyone i only ever sat in class and did my work they were also probably pretty salty the i got the best test score out of that entire ghetto-ass school in every grade but 9th when i got banned
#2745 to #2744 - quatre ONLINE (08/13/2014) [-]
At 18, can you not take adult classes? No offense, but I am genuinely interested in knowing what country would stop offering education to a 15 year old. College isn't for everybody, but that high school stuff is pretty important.

How the fuck did that happen? Isn't education both a right and mandatory? Even a shitty correctional school or homeschooling material should have been made available.
User avatar #2748 to #2747 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (08/13/2014) [-]
the funniest thing about the banning is i was accused of trying to force a chick in my class into prostitution when im well known in my neighborhood to give pretty much anybody whos nice to me what money they absolutely need for nothing in exchange and this chick in my class and she needs money alright? so i give her the 20 dollars she needs for a phone card because her boyfriend needs to talk to her allot like all 15 year old lovestricken idiots do and she says thank and we go about our day and i goto school the next day to find out that this poor lazy fat slob with horrible averages had started a rumor about me and prostitution then later on he made everyone to believe i had told him i was going to kill him and he went so far as to slip a damn 5 dollar hobby store knife into my damn bag to make the principle believe what he said
longer story short i found him a week after my banning took place in walmart in the car stereo section and proceeded to beat him to a pulp with the tire iron i was about to buy broke 3 of his ribs and his jaw security didnt do shit because hurr durr small town everyone in store know inb4 small ass country walmart

I didn't really mean to ask about how you were kicked out of school; figured it was private and none of my business. What I meant by my question was: how the fuck were you not allowed to continue education in any capacity? There should have been some online/home school/detention school option.
User avatar #2750 to #2749 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (08/13/2014) [-]
there are options but i cant afford them haha so that me fucked right there xD
#2751 to #2750 - quatre ONLINE (08/13/2014) [-]
Goddamn it just ain't right. Speaking in a broader sense than just your case, kids that are kicked out of a conventional school setting are the ones that need more structure and support. Falling behind in education doesn't just hurt the individual, it hurts the whole damn community.

yea but see unlike they ghetto niggerass asshole out here im putting back into my community what i take out in the form of work :3 ill do any job for anyone

I hope I'm not overstepping myself here, I know it can really suck when other people start lecturing you on your problems, but West GA Tech has free GED classes for anyone over 16 at three location in troup county. Registration is over the next few weeks for fall classes. If you have the transportation to get to one of the locations, I think you should check it out.

I'm going to bed now, so I can get up at noon for breakfast and schedule to cancel my utilities by the end of the week.

Hey guys, anyone know any electronic resources for Forensic Chemistry? Got an essay due but although I don't want direct help, I am having trouble finding material as most of my univeristy "reading list" I can't get access to at home and I can't really travel to the university library as its too far.

The essay topic is "Discuss purification methods of forensic evidence and explain the roles of Ultra-Violet / Visible / Infra-Red and NMR spectroscopy and chromatography in the analysis of forensic evidence."

Any help is appreciated.

What about string theory, how do we know it's the one true idea? I think that in a few years, we will find something more true. What do you think?
#2726 to #2723 - thedeadpidgeon (08/11/2014) [-]
Science doesn't deal with finding "one true idea"

Currently string theory is one possible theory dealing with the nature of the universe. There are other theories possible, but many believe string theory to be the most plausible, others believe in alternative theories. Odds are, string theory in its entirety isn't fully true, but as we find more information, and do more experiments, we will alter the idea or completely discard it for the sake of following a theory that more accurately represents the patterns we see in the observable universe.
User avatar #2731 to #2726 - newvein ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
>one true idea

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't scientists working on/searching for a theory of everything (Grand Unified Theory)? Idk much about it, but kinda sounds like what cognosceteipsum was getting at.
#2732 to #2731 - thedeadpidgeon (08/11/2014) [-]
You could say that, but I don't think it's truth in the way cogno meant. Science doesn't really look for truth. That's philosophy's game. Science just tries to build a view of the universe that is consistent with what we observe, but because there is no way to scientifically prove what we observe is truth, all we can really get from science is limited by our perceptions. Although, you could say that because we only interact with what we perceive, scientific theory should simply be taken as truth, because it is true for the only world we'll probably ever know.

Imagine a boulder was falling from the sky. Science can tell you that if you get hit it will probably kill you, but philosophy is what tells you that waiting under it to find out would be a bad move.

Of course, the problem with philosophy is that it's pretty much subjective. The only thing that may be considered objectively true is math, and that's debatable.

Sorry for rambling and probably spouting nonsense. I'm pretty out of it today...

Explain this shit to me. I think I understand, but could someone break down for me exactly what is happening, why the water will stay in the bottle like this?    
   
 also, a 4K recording scaled down to 360p works out very nice. lol

I'm so fucking tired of feelings. I want something rigid to put over my feelings. MATH and (some branches of) SCIENCE.. or maybe math IS a science. Fucking hell.
