Passengers

Saw it tonight... it's what SF is supposed to be... a mirror on humanity with thoughtful questions.

Low BP

Most of my life my blood pressure has been rather low even though I'm a very big guy. These last two years it's been running high, but today it stayed very low. It can get very scary when I'm too weak to do very basic things.

Never read it myself

Point 9 from art of the deal.... Deliver the goods
"You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on."
Rand appears to have misconstrued the hyperbole?

Murder by thought

Wrong ideas kill people. That makes them evil.

It's obvious that resources are finite... obviously wrong!
However, there was 1 billion people at the time of Malthus and they had the equivalent in today's dollars of GDP $180 per person. Malthus made the case that there was finite resources and we had to stop population growth. But now there are 7 billion people with the equivalent of $9000 GDP per person. 7 times the population, 50 times the wealth (7 squared) and 350 times the total wealth (7 cubed)
Where did this wealth come from? Bill Whittle explains.

"Space age hasn't begun yet"

If we ever get serious about it...

I planned to live 41 more years

I was 10 years old, sitting in a barber chair in Tacoma, discussing my future. I was the oldest of 6 and said I would be the last of my siblings to get married. The barber disagreed but I was right when I finally got married in Feb. 2002 (and divorced a bit over 3 years later.) I also told him I planned to live to 98 which seemed reasonable at the time.

So much for plans. That's why god doesn't plan. He purposes. His name actually means he causes to be. His promises can not fail. Unlike plans which fail all the time.

Last year my kidney specialist told me they were functioning at 30% which is fine since they have over capacity. But my latest blood test puts them at 15% which is near dialysis territory... and I will not do dialysis which means my mars retirement plans are out the window!

I was really looking forward to all the heads exploding during the next 8 years of Trump. But who knows? I now plan on a long slow painful agonizing death while I go blind, but hey, my erratic blood pressure could shorten that plan as well.

It's time for extinction

The left are evil deluded children. The left believes they can destroy America, but they will be spared. They have no clue, but they know how to project.

These articles (here and here) are examples of their mental illness.

We have a republic if we can keep it. The evil party is more so now than ever. The stupid party isn't going to wise up. It is up to the deplorables to save this country. We must destroy the evil party threat once and for all. We may never get the chance again.

We are at a historic inflection point that could go either way. The losers will do anything and are mad... as in psychotic and lawless. We will not get a second chance to get this right.
