But the money tho...
@minecraftnchill, ahh, money so I can pay back my college loans because God knows it'll take the rest of my life to pay them back, what doesn't go there will go to bills and food to basically stay alive and with the little that's left I can buy things that'll distract me from real life for the short time I have out of work so that I don't go fvcking insane from thinking about how shjtty my life really is. Isn't money just a great thing?
@Assassinator2399, yaaaay modern american economics.
@Assassinator2399, The moment you realize that money has no real world value and is only worth anything because we all ideologically agree that it does
@Assassinator2399, We're all slaves to the system. Blink182 warned us about this.
@Assassinator2399, The alternative to money would be to barter for everything you need. Do you know how much it would suck to have to find something of value for every person you want to exchange things with? Like, your internet provider only accepts coal, or your student loan company only accepts cattle, because that's what the universities take. You'd spend all of your free time exchanging things to get the right stuff, and would probably get taxed each time somehow.
@Jokanu, that's not exactly true. The alternative to money would be something tangible of actual value. Things like gold and silver would become the currency and since they are tangible and don't have to be backed by anything like our current paper currency (though most paper currency isn't backed by anything anymore) you won't have the problem of a depreciating currency
@Assassinator2399, not enough precious metals for that though :(
Better than protesting the election results in the middle of the state capitol.
Good thing my truck will clear most of them.
@ImNotRacistBut, what state is that and do those idiots not understand that they really have no say in who becomes president
@Assassinator2399, Austin Texas. All 150 liberals here went and protested down town while people were trying to make it to their jobs.
@ImNotRacistBut, people should look up what trump actually plans to do in office. A lot of what he wants to do is actually extremely beneficial to the country, this is if Congress allows him to do these things. Yeah a few things are crazy and he may be a piece of shjt person but I can see why he got elected. The problem here is the media really made him look terrible hell even the wall thing isn't that crazy, just think about it there's already a fence there and that fence has been there a long time and hasn't held up very well so why not upgrade it to a wall. The problem with that whole thing is the media made it seem like there wasn't already something there to try and prevent illegals coming into the country yet there's a 21 foot fence (28 if you add the underground part) already there.
@ImNotRacistBut, Oregon is worse.
@Assassinator2399, look at who he's appointing while in office. The outlook is bleak
@ImNotRacistBut, Austin Texas is overwhelmingly liberal though.
@Assassinator2399, the thing is, most illegal immigrants come to the country via plane, so building a wall won't stop that...
@Assassinator2399, immigration laws make it harder for people to leave than to stay. the people he's most likely to put in his office are all shït. Sarah pallin and his vice is the churchs' bitch boy. The future is bleak
Then join the army, fight climate change, DO SOMETHING THAT MATTERS....cause it's your life and no one says you have to do anything
@Tipathearrow, now I respect those that join the military because honestly I don't have the balls to do it myself however that's not very fulfilling if you think about the fact that you're constantly getting money ciphened from your job for other things and could face being laid off at any point, also when you do get out of the military the country you helped fight for fvcks you majorly by not supplying you with a stable income nor helping you to find a job yourself. As for climate change we all know you can't really fight it. We have sped it up to the point where we fvcked ourselves on that, also climate change is natural on our planet (we did speed it up though because we're careless fvcks) so fighting it really won't work since it'll happen regardless. And worst of all it won't matter at all since you'll be dead by the time you're remembered. You don't have to do anything but pay taxes, eat, drink and sleep but very few people are happy with the bare minimum. We're slaves to money
1) a lot of people join the service for different reasons. I just meant that some people join the service cause it's the only way they feel like they can make a difference (unlike this poor sap who will be at his job feeling useless). It can also teach you valuable skills and lessons that can't be learned under other circumstances
2) if you've never watched, Before the Flood, on YouTube it's pretty interesting (just give it a chance)
3) we are slaves to money ('nough said)
@Tipathearrow, I'll give the video a chance. I have watched white a few documentaries and videos on climate change and I don't deny that it's real, I mean there's more proof daily. However I just think that the human part of it is exaggerated immensely. Yes we have sped it up and changing our lifestyle is good to prevent it from moving even quicker but there's little we can do to slow or fight it. On your first point I know plenty of people join for different reasons and yes they may feel like they're making a difference and that's all that really matters but I was arguing that really they may not be making much of a difference. I've got plenty of friends in the military and considered it myself (couldn't go bcause of medical reasons) and yes you get a great job with great benefits and can obtain great skills. My point on that was more aimed at the people on the frontlines fighting. They almost always get screwed by the government because they weren't trained to get out.
@Assassinator2399, why do you think there's little we can do to slow and fight it? A lot of people have this idea that they can't do anything but it's not that crazy. More people need to talk about how they really feel on matters and influence other people on why they should be right, but not through anger and violence or by divide and conquering but by just talking. I think that's such a simple of an idea that gets so overlooked in today's world. With the Internet, so many people think they know it all that they forget to take a second and listen to what the other side has to say
@Tipathearrow, I think that because it's been proven that our planet goes through this and it's natural. There's no way to fight nature. As for slowing it I just feel that we've come to the point that we sped it up so much there's no way to undo what's been done. I may be wrong on that one since our efforts to go green haven't been around for as long as our careless messing up the environment. We are still playing catch up with our damages and so far the damages vastly outweigh the repairs. I am not saying we shouldn't try I'm just saying it could all be for nothing. Yes living a greener life can be better for you and your environment even if it only makes where you live look better. We've all become slightly more conscious of how we treat the planet and that's a good thing and if that's all we get out of trying to undo our mess then that's fine but I don't think we'll ever catch up to the damages in our lifetime or even our kid's lifetime (provided you're around my age)
@Assassinator2399, you kind of contradicted yourself by saying it's "natural" and "there's no way to fight nature", yet "we sped it up so much"...Since earth does have a natural climate change (which keep in mind is on a cycle of about 100,000 years) maybe there should be a different word or phrase for climate change. Also the samples taken showing that data of Earth's climate change has to be collected from ice cores in Antarctica, so it may not be the most accurate depiction of what the entire globe was like but it gives us good estimates. Good enough estimates to know we've been fvcking something up in the last hundred years. Also that documentary shows what we are doing and what we can do to help
@Assassinator2399, if you do end up watching that documentary I'd be interested to know what you think about it
@Assassinator2399, Just by cutting CFCs out of production and sale, the hole in the ozone has started to heal itself. We can go back, but not if Trump is allowed to try to "save the coal industry". Im sorry to all those poor bastards who only know the coal mine, but 1) no one should 'save the horse for transportation of goods' when we have cars and roads. Just meaning we have Vastly superior methods of doing anything coal has ever done and we should use them. 2) Coal is literally the dirtiest source of power and even Mao realized how bad it was for the Chinese people.
Yes the planet goes through cycles but we have already accelerated it by 10s of thousands of years. The planet will adapt anf save itself but it wont look like it does now. Right now almost everything that needs to be pollinated is done so by bees which are delicate, dont like our chemicals and dont like an average temp rise.
In summary, we need to fight like Hell just to have a chance of preserving our planet as it is.
@Tipathearrow, speeding it up and fighting are opposite things. We weren't fighting it we were "helping" it move faster it wasn't contradictory
@mas2de, we don't know exactly how much we've sped it up we just know that we did speed it up. And I'm not against taking down the coal industry because honestly we don't use coal very much anymore. The bee problem is honestly the thing that should be worried about the most since without them we would have to pollinate everything artificially. The problem with climate change though is it can't be fought. Like I said we'll be playing catch up for thousands of years and none of us or even our grandchildren will see the results of our attempts
@Assassinator2399, part of my point with the ozone hole, is that we may see positive effects sooner than we think, but you're right, it is more likely that unless we actually start to pull massive amounts if co2 out if the atmosphere, we wont see any reversal for a least a few hundred years. And its a shame, but we have to fight for the chance to stop fvçking it all up. If the bees go, most plants then animals go too.
