Watching the sun explode

Putting up my old lawn chair on the rooftop, pouring some ethanol containing beverage of choice, recline and enjoy. Ball of fire getting bigger and bigger taking over the whole sky and turning it red. Water transforming into steam, flesh starts burning, bodies explode and turn to dust. The whole planet bursting into tiny little pieces. And then, finally, silence and peace.

"Nature" screws up

Bret and Heather discuss the "Nature News" article from 27 May 2021 "Divisive COVID 'lab leak' debate prompts dire warnings from researchers". They are pointing out the bad science arguments in this article, especially how politics or agendas shouldn't have any impact on how you consider a scientific problem and, as a result, create a "upside-down" world.

At one point even the moon was integrated in the megastructure.

What can be done should be done

The technological imperative can be expressed as "Whatever can be done technically, will be done and should be done." It serves at least three purposes, all of them dubious:

  • It is used as an excuse to avoid democratic deliberation as well as ethical considerations with respect to the development and acceptance of novel technologies.
  • The technological imperative makes new techonologies appear inevitable by hiding the fact that the course of technological development is directed by special-interest groups and powerful social classes.
  • As a result of this concealment, belief in the technological imperative discourages not only critical thinking but also promotes a culture-wide passive acceptance of any new technology, no matter how destructive.

The Dog Park Conundrum

There is a foul stench in my home lately. It's of the rotten kind with nuances of inhumanity and despise. The kind which produces an immediate response of repulsion. Once inside your nose it's hard to get rid of, and there is a fear creeping up the walls that it will stay forever.

It turned out that it was coming from dog poop stuck under my shoes. There is a nice dog park around the corner in my neighbourhood. It's very convenient to reach by foot and the landscaping there is quite nice and invites to take a walk or two.

Fact is, I refused to believe I got the dog poop from the park.

There is a big fancy sign at the gates to the park which points to the fact that dog owners have to clean up the mess of their dogs. There is even a dispenser for free plastic bags near the sign.

But it has to be from the dog park, you go there everyday., my friend said to me. Just because I walk in a park where dogs poop all day long is no direct proof I got it from there. Maybe it's not even dog poop but poop from humans or cats. I walk around different places, you know.

Suffice to say this discussion went on for a long time with me sticking to my opinion about Innocent until proven guilty., i.e. the dogs or the dogs' owners were innocent. He, talking about Odds, Statistical Significance, Common Sense.

I guess I will never find out how the shit got under my shoe, or how I got food poisoning after eating the strange smelling chowder in that sketchy fish restaurant.
