Is It Time To Throw Out the College Application System?

Cardoor needs a step back (389 comments)

before one gets to embroiled in the minutia of trying to angle for the best spot, or 'fix' the system by devising a better sorting algorithm, it makes sense to step back and think clearly what one's intentions and expectations of the whole college experience are.

with the ratio of average-college-cost/anticipated-post-graduation-employment-opportunities skyrocketing, it's understandable that the first reaction people have is to panic and fret about ways to maximize their placement within the college apparatus... attempting to position themselves as close to the front of the queue as possible. but for many people, when they do an honest cost/benefit analysis, it's very likely that many of the schools that are being fretted over vis-a-vis their application processes are the same ones that are dangling the most ephemeral carrot in front of all prospective attendees.

California Governor Vetoes Bill Requiring Warrants For Drone Surveillance

Cardoor Re:Thanks for the threat (115 comments)

i have no idea what you're talking about. there was no threat, implied or explicit (threat? really? where did that come from??) you seriously misunderstood the experiment i referenced.

the point of referencing the experiment was that it's a good demonstration of what can happen when a system is fundamentally flawed in such a way that flaws are re-indoctrinated on new entrants. simply changing new entrants will do little or nothing on the course of the system, unless ALL the participants are replaced simultaneously. Your 'boot party' only works if you booted EVERY member of congress at the same time and put new ones in. otherwise, they just learn the rules of the existing structure once in.

this has zero to do with donations, polls, canvassing, or anonymity.

Cardoor Re:Churn the pot (115 comments)

nice gesture, but the reason this is inadequate may be summed up with the monkey-water-spray experiment.

Forest Service Wants To Require Permits For Photography

Cardoor Re:Yeah sorry, no (299 comments)

i hate to break it to you, but freedom of the press has long since waned here - especially when it comes in conflict with any sort of moneyed or politically connected interests. whether its hacking/monitoring/raiding/harassing the few remaining independent sources, or outright banning coverage of certain things (ie, ag-gag laws) with threats of fines or imprisonment.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

Cardoor Re:Points of interest. (478 comments)

you are hysterical.. now that i've realized what a joke you are, im quite enjoying this. i wonder how long we can keep it going?

yet again, you don't answer the question. you also have managed to paraphrase something that wasn't said. and making reference to a building being on fire somehow magically removing dozens of floors of stuff to slow a freefall? beautiful! only a truly insane, delusional, or comedic person could come up with these rationalization. priceless. what gem will you come up with next??

btw.. lest you think i've forgotten, feel free to answer the question you still haven't answered. (which of course you cannot without deny the basic laws of of physics).

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

Cardoor Re:Points of interest. (478 comments)

here is the argument from previous post which you ignored sans any insults.care to respond?

the beauty of the freefall/wtc-7 argument is that it is absolutely obvious and irrefutable. they messed up there big time. The fall is on video in real-time. the physics is easy and doesn't lie. where exactly in the link you attach does it address the free-fall issue? i found it nowhere. by my reading then, the question i gave you, which you answered with an affirmative, was done by referencing an article that makes no mention of the issue itself. do you still hold to your position, despite the fact that it contradicts the basic laws of physics? if so, on what do you base your position?


there.. i put the argument and logic up top before you read the insult. care to actually respond? no? aah.. thats right. what now?

oh, and which insult? you might ask? this one: you're an imbecile and a coward, hiding behind being 'offended' rather than admitting you're position is flat out wrong.

Cardoor Re:yet more proof (356 comments)

i was overcompensating for the assumed gender offense in my joke re: the male. as far as specifying homosapiens.. well, i specify b/c a) some non-human animals are pretty darn smart and b)there are possibly life forms far more intelligent than humans that im not aware of. we are only aware of different levels of consciousness on our own level or below.. how would we know if there was one above? does a goldfish know you are a person when you tap on the glass? or does it just see a flash of light and feel the vibrations?
