Re: Time is Illusory

I'm not sure that illusory is the right term. Two cars race. One hits the finish line first. If the passage of time is illusory, how do we explain that one car went faster than the other. Because one was actually going faster. I'm not saying that time on Earth passes at different speeds, just that ...

Re: Time is Illusory

Thinking about this some more, perhaps the thread title should be "The Passage of Time is Illusory" or something to that effect. We can all agree on what time it is in any given time zone, but the speed at which we all perceive the passage of time is different.

Re: I Don't Believe You

Most people's objection to Trump had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with him being an incompetent pile of crap. Are you trying to tell me that a man who was born a millionaire, hires illegal immigrants to maintain landscaping and work within his properties, takes his craps in a go...

Re: Time is Illusory

I thought about this, but it occurred to me that time is only perceived by animals, or consciousness, and the observation of it seems different depending on the state of your mind in that moment. Plus, I can't get past the concept of time being different depending on the strength of the gravity you...

Frankly I don't know why Psaki even tolerates these dumb questions about fake narratives that were invented from whole cloth by FOX News. All this does is enable them to keep doing it.
Agreed. I thought she was way too patient.

Re: Jen Psaki Owns FOX

yeah that was funny. another unhinged right-winger who can't stick with the point. Right-winger: let's talk about Covid-19 and Law enforcement. normal, unmoronic person: okay, great; Covid-19 was the #1 cause of death amongst law enforcement last year. Right-winger: there are other issues besides C...

Re: Trump to start American Pravda

Truth Social... just like "Honest Frank's Used Car Lot" (except I bet Honest Frank, lying F that he is, is still more honest than Trump).

Re: I Don't Believe You

Another weird phenomenon is how certain people interpret resistance to their bad behavior as partisan. This has been amplified by Trump. Apparently, being a right winger involves being an asshole, and if you call them out for being an asshole, they interpret it as, "Well, this person just disagrees ...

The difference between Psaki and Sarah Huckabee is like the difference between infinity and 1.

Re: NFL denies leak amid John Gruden scandal

Seems to me this is a blessing in disguise for the Raiders. They rallied after what happened to Gruden last week and completely owned the Broncos Sunday. Their interim coach seems well-respected and their new play caller appeared clairvoyant. It's too early to know how this will affect the team long...
