That picture is awesome! Was it just created?

You must be new here. Welcome to allegro.cc. This is the end of the tracks, but as you may have noticed, we're not stopping. Please hold on while we attempt to figure this out.

No, it is several years old, I think. I have it linked in my signature. I think I made it years ago in response to some derailed thread, but I can't remember.

I must have missed that thread for some reason.

But you have too many links in your signature anyway.

I must have missed that thread for some reason.

It was years ago I think. Probably 5+. I think it was right around the time that things started dying down around here. I bet you were in it, and saw it, but it probably wasn't significant enough to remember long term.

Actually, last night I watched a new documentary series on Netflix called The Mind, Explained. The first episode explains how memory works at a high-level. What I got from it was that effectively all of the different parts of our brain that are responsible for interpreting sensory input store their information locally, and the hypo-campus is responsible for gluing all the pieces together to make sense of them. We interpret the live event as something based on what our hypo-campus can put together with all of the information at hand, but we don't store that completed thought. The memories are still fragmented by the different regions of our brain.

When we try to remember later on the hypo-campus needs to piece all of that data back together, but the more time passes the less context I guess it has and perhaps the less pieces it can figure out to include in the process. And when there's missing information your brain just "imagines" it to give you a best guess rather than just signalling an error. In other words, we're always so confident in what we remember about the past, but in reality there's always some degree of live imagination thrown in to fill in the blanks, and we fool ourselves into believing that's what actually happened.

This is also why witness testimony is so unreliable in practice. Whatever information we don't have at the time we imagine, and that is obviously often wrong since it isn't based on facts. We're literally inventing the rest of our testimony based on past events we do remember. Similarly, we're open to accepting new ideas in place of missing information in our memories. So when the detective suggests suspect #3 your brain is open to accepting that as a new piece of the old memory because it doesn't have enough information to rule it out. Later on when you get up on the witness stand you'll have forgotten all about not being able to remember what the perpetrator looked like, and you'll tell the court you're 100% certain it was the defendant.

Our brains are amazing, but there's also very fragile and fallible. I'll let you stew about what ideas you're so sure of and how you came to that conclusion on your own. 8-)

Considering how poor my memory is anyway, I believe it. I don't always trust things from my memory.

I... I... I can't breathe.... laughing too hard.

I mean, I thought it was funny at two and hypocritical how they judge conservatives for doing the same thing. But THREE TIMES? The LEADER of CANADA has not one, not two, but THREE (that we know of so far!) different instances of wearing blackface?!

You can't write fiction this good.

Coming from the guy who smugly grandstanded saying "it's personkind, not mankind", how am I not surprised he's actually a complete racist (by 2019 standards at least). People who talk the loudest tend to be the ones trying hardest to escape the shame of their past (or even the shame of their current evil, like those soyboy male feminists who loudly decry the 'plight of women' but then go on to rape women at womens shelters--yes that happened).

Remember the conservative governor they tried to lynch for wearing blackface? I absolutely expect liberals to treat the PM ("prejudice + power") with at least as much vitriol as they did the conservative guy who only had ONE black face picture. Just kidding, we all know they're hypocrites--even if we don't want to admit it.

I don't care what either sides politics are. What I'm so disgusted by is the complete lack of fair, objective standards for what is right and wrong. It either IS, or ISN'T a fire-able offense to wear blackface. If you have to hear "who it is first" before you decide whether a crime is a crime (or moral failing), you're just being tribal and have no moral highground to stand on.

[edit]

Edgar Reynaldo: I've tried many times to get into tool. Like, I like the songs but it feels like they never build into anything. It's like, the greatest intro ever... that plays for 7 minutes straight.

It's pretty much a base requirement that anybody who's very politically involved is a hypocrite. Nobody is completely pure.

There's a huge difference between being a normal human with idiosyncrasies, and being a raging, lying, hypocrite that talks about "rights and wrongs" but is actually using them as a tool to assist their tribe. Hypocrites who talk about how we should act, but are only really using it as a means to control others. They're liars at their heart.

You can be for or against abortion. What you cannot do is say you're say, "against abortion" to gain political support and power while at the same time your wife aborts babies every week. Likewise, you can't be a California gun control senator who tries to take away legal guns then sells guns to actual Islamic terrorists. That's not a political position, that's an a$$hole.

Certainly, the hypocrisy is worse with totalitarians who demand that people not be allowed to do something and not lead by example.

I've been on too many reddit clones and youtube and I've been lurking for 10 minutes and still looking for the upvote/downvote arrows...

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”
