I've seen one photo of mondo (I assume it's him, he posted it). He is one of those dry thin fit-looking men who could be anywhere from 45 to 65. Or even older - one photo isn't much to go on.

This interests me. And this isn't the right thread for it... But, maybe we should make one to talk about the environment, population, etc.


What is the worst thing, in your opinion, that is making things go to shit here?
It's a combination of things: Extreme, extreme EXTREME wealth concentration that is getting worse and that enables corporations and governments in the developed world to plunder and virtually enslave the developing world.

Climate change looks like it's hit a tipping point. We're now in the mode of trying to mitigate the effects, not prevent them, and I'm skeptical even if the US govt were 100% in to combat climate change that it would be enough at this point.

We're still rebuilding in areas that now routinely see floods at high tide and in flood-prone areas. We're still rebuilding in areas that have become incredibly high risks for wildfires.

The impacts on agriculture and agricultural products are understandable, but hard to tease out and in a fragmented world are impossible to address effectively in a piecemeal fashion.

Here's an example of the efforts to adapt ONE crop: https://ensia.com/features/cotton-climate

I mean, it's comforting, but is it enough and is this kind of effort being put into enough other crops? Maybe?

And what are the ramifications of crops being modified wholesale to adapt to higher temperatures and all that entails and the vast majority of other lineages dying off? It's the complete opposite of genetic diversity, which is already almost a thing of the past in our food crops.

We're also already seeing the geopolitical impact of climate refugees and migrations.
but i guess.. how could it be any other way, when ppl, by nature, are power seeking, consuming creatures.

the only way is to mess up, and then stop in your tracks to realize that maybe you are doing harm.

and then try to put out the fire after you realize.

But then, even then - that's not necessarily enough, because ppl live in the now, and by nature focus on what's best for them right now.

The extreme wealth thing interests me.. but again, it's due to ppl wanting to have power and have wealth and growth. It's just our nature, sadly.

We will probably destroy everything in our tracks, including nature and wildlife eventually, in order to keep on growing.

Because that's what nature does - it will keep on growing until it can no longer sustain itself. Like a weed. And we happen to be on top.

Sometimes I wonder, when or if humans destroy themselves - if there would be any way for future species to access online records of things. Like, this forum, for instance.


How could future species do this? Anyway, it's an interesting thing to think about.

though, I am not saying that we shoudn't try to stop all this. I hope - that with new generations - it will be made a necessity to stop us from going down the path we are going.. and make changes. I mean, there is still that sense there, of wanting our species to not destroy themselves. I just hope there is also the same amount of concern taken when it comes to wildlife and marine species as well.

Much prefer using an Xbox Kinect only, now no longer manufactured.
Pie in the sky notion was to combine the suit with a Kinect, but

Dude, you should wear your suit around town with a fake VR headset that lets you see, then just wander around people and pretend to interact in the VR world

my power was pretty dumb. I could silence a player for the next day. Which effectively also took away their vote.
