Re: The Absolute Worst Video I Have Ever Seen On Youtube

At 4:20 did you mean coal and gas or oil?

Your speech has gotten much less sarcastic, have you been working on that?

Re: Beyond Burger Vs. Impossible Burger

I hope they start selling the impossible burger in stores. The FAQ says later "this year" but I don't know when it was written:

Re: Artificial Intelligence

In so far as they do, I'm pretty skeptical that those components are anything like aware or intelligent. It's possible, but SI can and is created without those, and where it is (while it's less efficient computationally) it's most similar to human cognition. As to the rest, that seems like a very fl...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

No. Some do, some do not. Now, again, where are you getting your information from? Almost any introductory computer-science textbook will say that the development of LISP is closely tied to the development of artificial intelligence, because artificial intelligence usually relies on self-modifying ...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

Why do you think that's the case? The vast majority of airplane crashes happen either when an airplane starts flying or during the landing. Having a 100 miles flight and an 10'000 miles flight should be about as safe. The same, of course, isn't true for cars. That's a good point, although most flig...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

Amarillyde I hate to always be on your case like this, but it's very frustrating that you seem to keep misunderstanding my arguments and you want to argue to death on these little things that you're obviously wrong on (like that cars are actually safer than planes). I don't understand why you can't...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

Of course there is more risk of dying by car crash: there are many more cars and people drive a car much more often than they take a plane Risk of death is assessed per mile traveled. If you're trying to decide on the mode of transportation to get from point A to point B, a plane or train is safer ...

Re: Hi there.

I had two emergency brain surgeries in the last 12 months, and my taste buds were effected so I just started really not liking the way it tastes or feels in my mouth. That's interesting. Physiology of taste probably has something to do with people going vegan (or the probability of). I wonder if it...

Re: New to the purity of life!

Growing sprouts and microgreens is a potentially very cost effective source of veggies. What are you sprouting? Usually you go want to cook most of them to absorb nutrients better, although fermentation might work too. The trick is making sure you have the right cultures and conditions to keep from ...
