Why Do Some People Oppose Gay Marriage?

June 21, 2011 18 comments

I have a question-

Why do some people oppose gay marriage?

Given the absolutely pathetic state of heterosexual marriage in developed countries, especially the USA, is it even possible to debase the “institution” of marriage any further? What part of this pathetic institution can you still desecrate?

Have you ever seen shows like Bridezilla? If you think that they are fiction, you have probably never overheard a group of women talking about their upcoming wedding. Here is the unpleasant truth-

‘Empowered’ women have debased heterosexual marriage beyond repair.

Two guys marrying each other might actually raise the state of marriage. In any case, the married life of two guys is likely to be less fucked up than its heterosexual equivalent.

This Is What A Dysfunctional Society Looks Like: Jun 21, 2011

Ever wonder how dysfunctional the USA has become? Here is an example-

US man stages $1 bank robbery to get state healthcare

He told the paper he had lost his job after 17 years as a Coca-Cola delivery man, and with it his health insurance. He was in increasing pain from slipped discs, arthritic joints, a gammy foot and a growth on his chest. Since being in the jail he has attained his goal: he has been seen by nurses and an appointment with a doctor is booked.

Women Can No Longer Burn, Ban or Destroy Porn

June 20, 2011 39 comments

Paid sex and pornography have always been major obstacles to the feminine agenda of getting men to slave away for them in return for mediocre and rationed sex. Unfortunately for them, technology is changing ground realities in both areas rather quickly.

In the pre-antibiotic, pre-testing era using the services of a prostitute was often a dangerous gamble. Thankfully antibiotics, antiviral drugs, STD-testing combined with better condoms, pills and the advent of the internet (escort ads/ bulletin boards etc) have made that route much safer and quite acceptable in many countries.

However the biggest changes to the sexual marketplace, as far as most people are concerned, is ubiquitous and high-quality porn. There was once an era when most porn was sold as print, film, video-tape and DVDs. You had to actually find and pay for semi-decent porn.

The physical nature of porn also meant that it could be burned, banned and destroyed with ease- often by fat and aging married women.

Today anybody with decent internet connectivity and a laptop, smartphone or tablet can access porn- whenever they choose, wherever they choose and with an ease which would baffle people from a couple of decades ago. I first realized the nature of this change, in the very early 2000s, after I bought my first decent laptops and PDAs. It quickly became obvious to me that technology had fundamentally changed the way I accessed and used porn.

Prior to that, porn was either linked to large non-portable devices (desktop computers, VCRs) or low-content density print media (magazines). Having thousands of photos and hundreds of movies on my laptop and a smaller collection on my PDA allowed me to access it on demand and in a variety of situations, which were previously unthinkable. It was now possible to watch a QSVGA size movie of a girl giving an awesome blowjob or taking a good spanking on a cross-country flight. I could sit in a coffee shop and thumb through a database with thousands of nudie pics. Looking through multimedia containing scores of naked chicks on the way to meet escorts or while waiting for them became second nature.

While I was an early adopter of many such technologies, today even an average person of average means can get a decent laptop (400-600$), tablet (500-700$) or smartphone (200-600$) and enjoy the fruits of that revolution. Mobile internet access (WiFi and 3G) is now almost universal and fairly inexpensive in developed countries.

Given that we use these devices and intertubes for many other purposes, the cost of high quality porn is now essentially zero. Attention-whores with cheap digital cameras are doing their best to increase the diversity of the subject pool.

For a long time women, especially wives and girlfriends, could control their men’s access to porn because it was costly, low density and physical in nature. Today they have lost that power because porn is free, high density, non-physical, ambient and easy to access. As I have said before, good porn can replace boring and mediocre relationship sex.

The true extent of this change will not be publicly obvious for a few more years, however the trends are clear.

No woman in the relationship sex mode can compete with the hundreds and thousands of attention-whores who will always look better, younger and be less bitchier than a ‘real’ woman.

Biological Life Has No Intrinsic Value

June 19, 2011 13 comments

What I am going to say might not make me popular, but here it is-

Biological life has no intrinsic value.

While it may be hard for most people to accept the idea, ask yourself- would the lack of biological life on earth or anywhere in the universe make any worthwhile difference? Would thermonuclear reactions in stars slow down or speed up? Would the nature of gravity change? Would the pattern of interactions between atoms and molecules change?

A universe without biological life would be practically identical to one with it.

The innate worthlessness of biological life is due to one peculiar feature of biological systems. The hardware cannot (yet) be separated from the software or its products. This restricts its ability to persist and spread.

Things would however change if rational intelligence could exist in a variety of non-biological systems and be implemented in new ones. There would be, then, little impediment to its spread and it could exist in a number of manifestations which we cannot even imagine.

I have a strong suspicion that advanced extra-terrestrial intelligence would be similar to software which can run on multiple systems rather than have any fixed form.

Some of you might counter by saying that life without purpose would not want to exist. But does biological life have any purpose to begin with? But is exists nonetheless, doesn’t it? Look around you- does the futility or lack of purpose stop humans from existing?

Why should anything have a purpose? A purpose makes sense only if you are constrained by resources and have to justify your choice. A sufficiently advanced trans-human intelligence has no resource constraints, nothing to defend, justify or care about. It can just hang around for the show.

Such intelligence might not be either a singular entity or a group of individuals, but something with features of both and without an analogue in the biological world.

Ok, here is an example of what google image search can do.. remember to turn all filtering OFF.

Take this picture from a previous post..

With google image search, I can locate many other pictures from that original series.

Example- http://www.nudistaalavista.com/2011/04/noche-playera.html

Here are some of the pictures from that series-

Google Image Search and Nekkid Girls

June 18, 2011 4 comments

Google now allows you to search the web by images on the desktop- on Chrome and Firefox (with the appropriate addon).

Here is an explanation..

So, I started wondering..

Is it possible to use a nekkid picture, or self-shot, of a girl and find similar pictures (of her) or a list of the websites it was posted on?

Well, at this moment finding another picture of any girl is somewhat hard unless she is a true attention-whore. However it is easy to find out about every non-password protected website it was ever posted on along with the chronological order of posting (and in various image resolutions).

If you do a little extra work, it is possible to find out who posted it and use that info to trace it back to the subject of that picture. Between this development, Facebook face recognition and EXIF tags, my dream is slowly coming true.

I might post a few examples of my research, on this subject, in an upcoming post.

My Prediction About This Guy

June 17, 2011 10 comments

You may have recently seen the following picture in many online forums. Let me make a prediction..

This guy (Jason Li?) is going to get some serious amount of pussy in the next year. Think about it- an asian guy who is willing to act violent, break glass and pose like a badass. How many other asian guys have the public proof of their notoriety circulated on the interwebs?

Why Are People Incapable of Doing The “Right Thing”?

June 16, 2011 12 comments

Unless you are hopelessly optimistic or retarded, you might have noticed something peculiar about human behavior-

Most people are incapable of doing the “right thing” even if they know it.

Religions, philosophers and scamademics (scam + academics) try to explain this bizarre behavior in terms of greed, inertia, evolutionary psychology or just plain stupidity. However there is one peculiar feature of this behavior which nixes conventional explanations.

The inability of people to do the “right thing” is plainly detrimental to them.

To put it another way, they knowingly act against their best interests. Let me explain that with two examples.

1. Almost every terminal cancer patient in N. america dies in great agony and pain because of the unwillingness of doctors to prescribe high doses of opiods and drugs like cocaine/ methamphetamine towards the end. It is justified as an unavoidable side effect of the ‘war on drugs’.. but ask yourself- What sort of society and people let terminally ill people suffer and die just because of ‘legal’ issues about certain drugs? what about the pathetic, and predominantly white, subhumans who support the ‘war on drugs’? Have they not seen their near and dear ones die like that? But why do they still support the very system that keep this status quo going, even if it would eventually hurt them in the same manner.

2. What about Indians who try to screw everyone around them, even though they know that it will translate into more conflict, less cooperation and a shittier existence? There are people who steal money from public works funds to build opulent houses which are surrounded by people who lack toilets and drainage systems. What is the advantage of living in a manison if it smells like shit and you risk being attacked by stray dogs outside it? What is the use of living in a city if you have to frequently use backup generators to maintain a constant electric supply? What is the point of stealing money from others if that results in a generally unsafe existence for everyone- including yourself.

These are just two examples of people not doing the “right thing” even if it hurts them.

People have also tried to explain such behavior as a manifestation of ego (I am always right), group-think (we all believe that this is the best way) or control issues (I am the boss)- and they are partially right. In my opinion, there is a much darker explanation for this behavior.

Most humans are shallow scumbags who believe that they are somehow magically protected from their own shit.

A lot of irrational human behavior cannot be explained by any set of assumptions which does not include significant and willful cognitive dissonance. How else can you explain a stupid white man concerned about ‘black crime’ when he is being constantly sodomized and robbed by his employer, spouse and society? How else can you explain a whiteknighter/mangina who frequents ‘game’ blogs? What about a moron who supports paying the younger generation less even though his retirement is based on those very same people making more than him? What about women who complain about ending up with uncaring assholes?

Do you really think that all these people are that retarded? Seriously?

I am curious if any of the readers have an alternate rational explanation for this phenomenon.

So, Why Do First-World “Elite” Store Money Abroad?

June 15, 2011 18 comments

In a previous post, I talked about the tendency of third-world “elite” to store money abroad. A few readers thought I was implying that whites are somehow better.

Sadly, for them, that is not the case. White “elites” in the first-world are just as likely to steal, scam and store money in tax free havens as non-white “elites”. It is just that the system does not let them go as far as they otherwise would.

How many large US and other western corporations pay even a cent of income tax? Aren’t accounting rules and law great- for the rich?

The Government Accountability Office said 72 percent of all foreign corporations and about 57 percent of U.S. companies doing business in the United States paid no federal income taxes for at least one year between 1998 and 2005. More than half of foreign companies and about 42 percent of U.S. companies paid no U.S. income taxes for two or more years in that period, the report said. During that time corporate sales in the United States totaled $2.5 trillion, according to Democratic Sens. Carl Levin of Michigan and Byron Dorgan of North Dakota, who requested the GAO study

So who is benefiting from the money which would have gone to the government?

Shareholders.. Looked at the stock market in the last three years? Institutional investors.. Read your pension fund statements of late? Maybe the capitalists are putting it back in the economy by starting new businesses and creating new jobs.. Fat chance, unless you are talking about China.

So what are they doing with all that extra money?

Some of it is just sitting around- What Will It Take for Companies to Unlock Their Cash Hoards?

All told, the companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index are sitting on more than $960 billion in cash, a record.

Remember that the quoted figure of $960 billion is probably a fraction of the real amount hidden by all types of corporations through open obfuscation, made-to-order laws, creative classification and clever accounting. You bet that most of this money is being used for financial speculation and similar scams that hurt almost everybody else.

So, who benefits from hoarding a few trillion dollars- You? the average person? the economy of first-world countries?
There are only two groups that really benefit from hoarding such large amounts of money-

a. The senior management of companies (rulers and despots).

b. People who ‘manage’ that money (bankster-types)

So how is this situation fundamentally different from third-world rulers and despots stealing money to hoard it abroad?

Evaluating Risk: 1

June 15, 2011 5 comments

Many blogs spend an inordinate amount of time talking about risk, manliness, testosterone etc. I believe that most of such talk is worthless bullshit.

There is a fairly straightforward and objective way to assess risks for any given situation. So let me begin-

1. You simply cannot incorporate all low-frequency and high impact (black swan) events in any model of risk assessment.

Don’t waste you time worrying about such events- it is not worth it. The chance of being hit by lightning on a golf course is far less than being killed driving to, and from, a golf course.

2. Understand the true nature and occurrence of any given risk.

You are far more likely to drown while surfing than be attacked by a shark. Heck you are more likely to be die from food-poisoning acquired at a beach barbecue than be attacked by a shark. More people died from the 1918-1919 influenza epidemic than in ww1. Hunger, cold, heat, infectious diseases and infected wounds killed more soldiers until ww2 than any man-made weapon.

3. The odds for so-called ‘risky behavior’ changes over time and conditions.

Flirting with women in a large westernized city with over a million people is much less risky than doing so in a small town with 5,000-odd people. Unwanted pregnancy and STDs are much less of a threat than they were even 50 years ago. Hiking in the 10th century was far riskier (way more wild animals and outlaws) than it is today.

4. Though every action can have an extreme outcome (either way)- it is the median outcomes which should concern you.

There are people who have survived falls of more than 50 feet and there are people who have died after slipping in their bathtub- however there is a pattern. A very small percentage of people who fell over 50 feet on hard ground have survived, but most people who have slipped in their bathtub have escaped with minor and non-life threatening injuries.

5. Understand the median worst-case scenario (median loss) and median best-case scenario (median gain).

Following from the previous point- it is the median scenarios that are most likely and it is therefore useful to evaluate your willingness to accept the median loss and median gain. Getting contact info from a girl has a low rate of success (fucking her), but hardly any downside (unless you start talking her). Therefore even a situation with otherwise poor odds of success is acceptable if the median loss is very small or almost nonexistent. On the other hand, a marriage has a very high chance of failure or unhappiness and carries a massive penalty for failure- if you are a guy and should be hence avoided.

6. Do not use old information, however accurate, to model the future without factoring system changes since that era.

Once engineering was a good career choice with good pay, excellent job stability and social respectability. Today.. it is only a pale shadow of its former self. The same can be said about law school, chemistry and even medicine. Once society did not look up to smooth-talking sociopaths as emulation worthy models. Today the vast majority of people look up to, imitate and worship such people.

I will try to write more about this issue in an upcoming post.

Why Do Third-World Rulers and Despots Store Money Abroad?

June 14, 2011 12 comments

Have you noticed a very odd and almost universal behavior of third-world rulers and despots from countries as diverse as India and Pakistan To Libya and Nigeria?

They store most of their stolen money and loot abroad, often in western countries and tax-free havens.

My question is- Why?

Superficially this question might seem stupid.. of course, it is their security clutch for living large after a coup or ‘forced retirement’ results in their exile. However the amount of money they steal and store along their subsequent behavior is what makes it truly bizarre.

It is easy to understand despots who stash away a few million, hundred million or even a billion dollars abroad. But what about those who stash tens of billions in foreign banks and tax havens?

Can you seriously consume stuff and services worth hundreds of millions in a human lifetime? The only way to burn through that sort of money is to give it away or have it stolen from you- one way or the other.

An even more bizarre aspect of this behavior is that these rulers and despots (or their progeny) rarely get to enjoy most of their ill-gotten gains. They are too busy scamming, plotting and bullshitting to actually enjoy even a fraction of the fruits of their labor. Indeed, the only people who truly enjoy that money are the bankers, investment managers and accountants who help “manage” it.

Another related question is- Why not spend your ill-gotten gains in the country you rule and thereby create jobs and increase your likability?

What use is tens of billions when you are a marked, stressed and busy man trying desperately to remain in power while living in a generally impoverished and unsafe country. The guys who manage their money live much better, safer, stress-free and fun-filled lives in countries where they can go almost anywhere without being kidnapped, killed or robbed.

So why do third-world rulers and despots prefer a much poorer quality of life, when they could easily make a few tens of millions and then disappear in some affluent western country? Why stay in power till the bitter end? Why not enjoy living life?
