Re: The Battle For The Centre.

Sophistry can have a positive dimension... Sorry, but again, I have to take issue with this. Crikey, I sound like a strict schoolteacher asshole. sophistry - def: subtly deceptive reasoning or argumentation Crying 'sophistry' at anything one disagrees with and doesn't want to have to deal with, int...

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

I'm sure ther's a better word that can be used, I'm just being lazy. Sophistry can have a positive dimension, but I'm using in the simplistic sense of 'he blinded me with science' (or in this case.. ' he blinded me with 'postmodernism').

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

I reckon, more importantly than being a 'seer' he's a great communicator of this, which is why lots on the regressive Left see him as a threat and not just another academic (it also strikes them where it hurts as they consider academia to be one of their powerbases). I've listened to a great deal of...

Re: The Doggy Position

Very good, I like how it speaks directly to the title too. The plumpness of the figures does lend a sheeplike quality to the 'customer' (or is that just me?)

The 'customer' is explained here:

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

He's had plenty of intimidation so far and he's ridden it out. The poster campaign in his neighbourhood (antifa types and hysterical trans-activists) was probably the one that hit home most of all and he still refused to be cowed even though he admitted to being quite disturbed by it.

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

A slightly creepy observation about the start of Peterson's Channel 4 interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK2-xYyNpYk This is probably not uncommon with professional interviewers, but Peterson's objective relating of it makes it look starker to me. If Peterson , as a clinical psychologist, f...

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

I suspect that mainstream tolerance for feminism as expressed by the interviewer here is waning, Agreed. If you mean 'mainstream' as 'normal people'. Channel 4 put her in that chair not only as their preferred interviewer to press the message home, but also as an exemplar of the movement . The cont...

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

This was a great interview and one of my favourite parts was at 25:10 where she asks him why the actions of Peterson's 'trans-activist' opponents are in any way comparable to Maoist China. He says "no problem" and then goes on to give a beautifully succinct and non-waffly response that almost anyone...

Re: Tracing the roots of the SJW

Interesting that the legacy media felt the need to step in this time and change the discourse It's looking increasingly like the split will be right down the middle, including some of the msm swinging slightly rightward, to balance things up - ensuring two, evenly-matched, diametricly-opposed facti...

Re: The Battle For The Centre.

I'm pleased that my rounding off of the Skeptics Saga here wasn't in vein, it's rather dull stuff when gone into in detail and I'm glad to draw a line under it. I agree with " Sargon for all his faults still provides a valuable service... ", and I've referred to him before as an 'information crunche...

Re: Tracing the roots of the SJW

We were talking of the old-guard of Socialism/Communism above, the ones who never really bought into the intersectionality interpretations of Marxism, perhaps they will re-emerge and do a "back to basics" thing when this clusterfuck is over. How does the clusterfuck end? Stalin stopped the leftward...

The Left-Wing Cannibal Holocaust by David Cole January 02, 2018 Her name was Nari and she was the tallest Korean girl I’d ever seen. Six foot, at least.

Re: Security? LOLOL

Windows user should probably use one of the checks available to see if these are actually active rather than just relying on vague updates that may or may not be doing what they claim. I haven't ...

I run an 8-core AMD chip - Windows 10 has updated today and I've noticed no drop in framerate on my most labour intensive games. That's not to say that something might be coming down the pipeline that fucks it all up - these fixes are rushed, under-pressure knee-jerk responses that will possibly - ...

For those of a conspiratorial bent, there is an interesting wrinkle occurring, but first a little history (again): Possibly through both having a hitherto independantly earned lion's share in the business market, Intel (hardware) and Microsoft (software) became intertwined for quite a long time and ...

Re: Security? LOLOL

At least we've established that 'security' is not a black and white thing. I would say that is a no-brainer, but some people might be tempted to go with it and then get pissy that they've been misled.. let the buyer beware is a good one to remember, especially as we had a stark scenario above starri...

Re: Security? LOLOL

Consider your doorway to the house. You may close door to stop people wandering casually in, a first level of security. People can still enter easily though so you put a lock on it which would be the next level of security. A lock can be picked however and even if the lock can't be picked, the door ...

There are three (related) bugs, one major one and two minor ones. The AMD processor negates the first two so I shouldn't incur the slowdown. However, I'm certainly not complacent which is why I'm taking steps and that is the way to approach things. I'm also documenting the process in the spirit of ...

We'll beg to differ on this one. I wouldn't get too used to having a secure AMD processor just yet - I feel there's more to come. :-) There are three (related) bugs, one major one and two minor ones.
