The Dominant Life Form In the Cosmos Is Probably Superintelligent Robots

Oligonicella Re:Life form? (314 comments)

The phrase "life form" is not a synonym for "being alive".

From Merriam-Webster: life-form - the body form that characterizes a kind of organism (as a species) at maturity; also : a kind of organism.

Note "characterizes", "as a species" and "maturity".

Reaction To the Sony Hack Is 'Beyond the Realm of Stupid'

Oligonicella Re:Land of the free (564 comments)

You voided your own argument by 1) typing it on a computer and 2) admitting you were watching a movie. Both appliances get stolen all the time. Your last argument is garbage. They'll break into a house to rummage and *see* if you have things, even personal things. Short of it - I don't believe you AC.

Reaction To the Sony Hack Is 'Beyond the Realm of Stupid'

Oligonicella Re:Land of the free (564 comments)

I'm sure you understand yet avoid, that the *simplest* solution to all of this is **not to steal**. In other words, the onus of the situation is squarely on the perpetrator.

Instead, you advocate a laid-back attitude of being a willing victim. Right up until that thief breaking in decides that causing you or yours bodily harm is a fun thing to do, which they have certainly been known to do. Then, you'll scream about lack of state protection, assuming you are left capable.

Anyone thinking they have the right to decide that the time I've spent building my life is up for grabs had better expect the exact same disdain for theirs.

If you truly believe this, then you must conclude that blacks are quite racist because they get bent out of shape over this issue.

Oligonicella Re: "Could", (390 comments)

*Every* generation has altered the living conditions passed to the next. Now that your main point is collapsed, mind swallowing your own ad hominem?

Whitehead's theory of gravitation is still about gravity. So, everything from "Clearly" on is straw.

No this. Thankfully Florida told him to cram it. On the other hand, his messes *can* be cleaned up. This can't.
