Hey do you guys think that the new HBO series is anti-nuclear propaganda?
Unintentionally. It's complete garbage science.

Thunderf00t did a video on it, though I have not watched yet I trust he knows his stuff here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsdLDFtbdrA

Re: Artificial Intelligence

Putting an artificial intelligence in a box so that they can't get access to the internet or the outside world is not as easy as you think. I disagree, however I don't want to argue it here because on reflection a victory would be Pyrrhic. An irrational fear of AI escaping could actually help preve...

Re: Showering

Maybe you're right, but I'm not sure. I think if you are going to make a lot of eco investment you need to find someone that thinks like you. Someone else eco that will see the value. That's realestate for you. If you leave the house on the market long enough you'll find somebody who sees the value...

Re: Avoiding food obsession

Thanks Hannah, I'll quote my other post here just for those who haven't seen it: Food obsession tends to be linked with health-based orthorexia, so if you're doing it for the animals this time around that will help a lot in avoiding that. A couple other tips: 1. When checking ingredients, ONLY look ...

Re: 3 years vegan, constipation

If he has time maybe Red can make a thread on this fact/opinion thing, should statements, and burden of proof sometime to link from the rules so I don't have to explain this all the time. :lol: I skimmed what are we doing now? And why do we need a new thread? Read the few paragraphs above it if you...

Re: 3 years vegan, constipation

Really? Oh dear... The verb 'should' is not only used to indicate a duty or a command, but can be used to express an advice, which was most evidently the only possible use of such verb in a post answering to someone who was asking for advice.

It's called Vegan Forum.
Oh, our arch nemesis!

I thought they used to only allow vegans there, or am I thinking of somewhere else? Or have they liberalized?

Looks like they have fewer posts than we do but I think they've been around longer, did they reboot and lose everything or do they prune?

Re: Showering

Why do you rent rather than buying? There are many more green upgrades you can make to owned property. In fact, your house is now more valuable hopefully and you can sell it as a way out. Unfortunately, not by much. Buyers aren't willing to pay much more, if any more at all, for a greener house. Irr...
