If it is real- I see this as the beginning of the prequel.. the first of the many initially unsuccessful attempts to change things.

Tasteless Question: Mar 12, 2011

March 12, 2011 2 comments

Many western countries and their media seem to be rooting for high casualties in the Japanese Megaquake of 2011. So here is my question-

What will be the final casualty number when, not if, a similar event occurs in San Fransisco Bay Area?

My guess is between 100,000 and 500,000- earthquake resistant structures notwithstanding. Current civil engineering approaches to mitigating earthquakes damage work until a “direct hit” of Richter 8.1-8.2.

You should understand that all well-documented Richter 8-something earthquakes were epicentered in remote areas, or under the sea. Casualties from the recent magnitude 9-something Chile earthquake would have been much higher if it had been epicentered under a populated area.

The SF bay area is built above a network of faults. The infamous San Andreas fault is merely the best known of a number of inter-coupled faults. Did I mention the Juan de Fuca Plate?

Why I Detest STEMers More Than Garden Variety Sociopaths

March 12, 2011 17 comments

Have you ever wondered why STEMers-type people are often detested in the popular culture of many eras, countries and ethnicities? Some of you might think that such dislike and hostility is irrational and based on envy about ‘IQ’ and ‘earning power’. But that is simply not true.. Note that many STEM-related fields (doctors, lawyers, managers) also attract similar personalities that are functionally identical to classical STEMers.

STEMers do not typically make much more than the median middle-class wage of the countries they live in. They might be overrepresented in countries with a small middle-class, but such countries are not exactly pleasant places to live in- how many people want to move to Brazil rather than just visit it for parting and fucking?

So what is behind the poor image of STEMers in popular culture?

In my opinion, it comes down to-

1. Attitude of STEMers towards others.

They measure the worth of people on the basis of how much useless crap they can regurgitate. Do the opinions of ‘famous’ dead men matter other than as an opinion by a human being?

Opinions are just interpretations of objectively measurable phenomena. The authority of the opinion creators has NO correlation with their validity.Beliefs that are today held as evidence of human stupidity were promoted by the respectable and ‘educated’ members of those societies. Belief in witchcraft, bleeding sick people, eugenics etc were once considered to be the mark of respectable breeding.

2. Belief in their own bullshit.

For a group that asks of understanding and open-mindedness from others, STEMers are remarkably dogmatic, closed-minded and cliquish. In many ‘progressive’ circles- people who question man-made global warming, the supposed role of dietary fats in obesity or any other indicator of SWPL status are shunned and mocked as “stupid”. Remember that such judgments are passed on the basis of ‘respectable belief’ and trust in authority, as opposed to objective and reproducible measurements.

3. Expecting deference from others.

Why would anybody else care about the hobby horses, rituals and stupid games of STEMers? Why should the rest of the world care about people who believe that they deserve special treatment? What do they offer in return? Do they even have the likability of non-STEMer sociopaths?

4. STEMers are far less likable than non-STEMer sociopaths.

Your median sociopath is far more likable, generous and reliable than a median STEMer. In my experience, assholes and garden variety sociopaths are much better and safer company than STEMers. Why hang around self-righteous, back-stabbing, humorless, incestuous scum if you don’t have to?

5. The world-view, attitudes and actions of STEMers are feminine.

Most men rightly look down upon men who act like prima donnas, cunts and bitches. While women can get away with such behaviors because they have a pussy, STEMers offer no compelling reason for the rest of humanity to give a shit about them.

6. Most STEMers do not contribute to humanity.

Inspite of their rants about how they are necessary for the progress of humanity, the vast majority of STEMers are either useless or a net negative as far as human progress is concerned. Most are just clever parasites who enjoy dressing up as secular priests (doctors, lawyers, managers, scientists, engineers and other assorted scum) and abusing whatever little authority they have.

It really comes to combining the most detestable features of sociopaths, women, politicians, priests and bureaucrats.
