Come to think of it, why did you even bring up a lifestyle where one has no expectations when we're arguing about a lifestyle that revolves around negative expectations? Also, I know I'm going to regret bringing this up, because it will inevitably lead to us arguing about semantics again, but nihilism isn't really about one's expectations. It's the belief that nothing in life really matters. It's not on the optimism/pessimism scale.

To quote you again, "A person who doesn't have the capacity to imagine good things happening to them won't recognize good things for what they are."

"A person who doesn't have the capacity to imagine good things"

"doesn't have the capacity to imagine good things"
I'm not saying you're opposed to the idea of pessimists being able to form mental images. I'm saying you're opposed to the idea of pessimists having mental images they enjoy. But can we not talk about their capacity to imagine anymore? Now we're actually just talking about semantics.

I'll concede that you never said anything about success, but even though you never actually said the word pessimism, you were clearly describing pessimism on a comment about pessimism on a content about pessimism.

Nope, like you said yourself, pessimists aren't unable to imagine (actually expect but who cares right?) positive scenarios happening to them.

Having no expectations more closely fits the definition of nihilism, not pessimism. Nihilism is a philosophical doctrine that suggests the lack of belief in one or more reputedly meaningful aspects of life.

You do realize calling me a twelve year old doesn't make me wrong, right? And besides, even if it did, you have no real proof that I'm a twelve year old. Also, I told you the difference between imagining and expecting things because you said that they were the same thing. To quote you, "Your first comment:

[...]If you expect only bad things to happen to you..

Your second comment:

Pessimists are perfectly capable of imagining good things, who told you they weren't?

To answer your question, you did." I dislike people in debates arguing over semantics too, but you were treating two different things as one and the same.

You're making it seem like I'm opposing the idea that pessimists can form mental images.

I would say that it was an unintentional honest mistake, but since you're the semantics expert the only conclusion i can draw is that it was completely intentional.

There's a difference between expecting something and imagining something. I imagine girls wanting to have sex with me every day, but I don't expect it.

Really? You're going to dive into hairsplitting semantics? And explain with examples? Bravo!

If you feel that having no expectations is a sound life philosophy, go ahead and live that way. I know you won't, and if you think you already are, you really are not.

I checked your profile to see if you had written your age. You hadn't, but my expectations (ooh this is a word you know, you big boy you) aren't very high. 14 at the most? Nah probably 12.

You go on with your life now. But don't discuss a question with an adult IRL like you "discussed" this question with me. You'll just embarrass yourself.

Pessimists are perfectly capable of imagining good things, who told you they weren't? Pessimists are just people more inclined to expect bad things than good things.

To answer your question, you did. Also if you'd bother to read my previous comment (I know you didn't) you wouldn't try to shoot me down for replying to YOUR hypothetical question.

And no. Only expecting bad things to happen =/= More inclined to expect bad things

Transportation is another problem. You can't transfer energy around the world without huge losses. It is a bigger problem than night time because you have to convert a grid that has 1 high power source (nuclear) to a grid that supports many low power sources. However night time is not such a big problem since there is also less consumption during the night so other power sources can handle that (wind still works at night for example). In fact the idea of building massive powerstorages is not only inefficient, it is getting increasingly inefficient due to renewable energy. Might seem like a paradox since they are reliant on storage systems to counter their high fluctuations but now storing energy at night and selling it at day is less efficient since you have less energy overproduction that reduces the costs of electricity at night. Germanys approach to storing energy is to include biomass energy (burning wood pellets and the likes) in the EEG (renewable energy law) and paying people for simply having a capacity ready to be used in cases of low solar/wind output.
