@danv2 well in outer space no one can hear you scream and every one can wear a mask. Why were the wimin usually the ones objectified and targeted? IOW: yeah what /is/ driving this behavior that NO body would do in church?
@johngordon Do you suppose his figures on reduction of labor's share distinguishes between globalization [labor demand flows to cheaper markets] and actual hours-of-work-in-a-product declines? Only the latter is an AI thing.
@johngordon This is certainly true to the extent that we live in an information economy /white collar and post industrial world. But I can buy CNC plasma cutter and 3D printers putting 10 machinists out of work for about 20K$ invested...not just AI.
@johngordon I will be trying some Karhu backwoods skis this weekend..on crusty untouched snow. These have metal edges which I hope will lend some much needed control. I found my Siberian did not mind pulling me on groomed and mostly level trails.
@johngordon John, do you use groomed trails or just go busting through the woods? When I was in 2ft deep powder last week I found my poor skills and standard skinny nordic skis disappeared under the snow...too much effort, not enough fun.
@danv2 now watching. beginning to doubt my models of how gender divide revolving around a disposition for visual stimulation vs a disposition for spoken/tactile social stimulation underpins sense of status/security to drive size of cliques of boy vs girls.
@yasmine I can't get my kids to use it either, even after I bought them accounts. I keep renewing the accounts because sooner or later, FB is going to twit in their hat. My S.O. is an utter technophobe so I expected a degree of discretion in posting here
@pilgrim good luck. Don't expect good work or any meaningful guarantee for the work. When that kind of crew shows up you are doing well if the foreman speaks English well enough to understand you want his boss's phone number. Been there, done that.
@la yeh, that kind of observation is in the back of my mind: Why now overthrow what 3 generations have endured? Has their oppression worsened gradually? Is there a live frog in the pot or one well boiled and ready to serve?
@ivancev are there any respected studies contrasting the prevalence of food allergies for the various fad diets: Paleo diet, Macrobiotic, organic, locavore, vegan etc. Or, contrasting prevalence across socio-economic groups?
@johngordon I guess I am betting on the cowardice and ridiculously low expectations of the ordinary N Korean. And I do NOT consider them particularly cowardly, just normal humanity is enough to enable even rotten tyrants.
