Muy bien, Rodgrigo.  I've always liked the upside down question mark to start an interrogitive in Spanish.  It's uniquely kooky but eminently sensible.  Other languages should get off thier ass and use it.  But where do I find that key? 

iI ALSO ENJOY INVERTED EXCLAMATORY PUNCTUATION!

Good stuff in here.

Fodor thinks (or thought - I am not up on his latest thinking) that type physicalism is false and token physicalism (as you describe it) is true.  That leaves him with the problem of what to replace type physicalism with (he can't use dispositions, because he rejects the behaviorism of Skinner and Ryle), so he describes mental states as computational relationships involving inner representations.  That's his version of mentalism, a non-substance mentalism, so to speak. However, it is not clear how to give an account of these inner representations, which he regards as innate.  What are they, if not brain states?  He wants to say that they are not, and his Language of Thought is an attempt to give an account of them and the relationships between them. But there are many problems with the LOT approach, not the least of which is how to relate the LOT to neuroscience.  Neuroscientists are thoroughgoing materialists and do not have much patience for invoking nonmaterial "representations" motivated by (what they view as) outdated philosophical problems.

I haven't read any of these guys but doesn't anyone make the case that brain states are observable manifestations of the wellspring of the mind?  Equating inner representations, feelings, reasoning, and the language of self-chatter to the corresponding bright bit on the brain scan seems to me to miss the point.  If I accept that a posited non-physical mass and the physical mass mirror one another in static state, and that the inner can be measured by scans, then I still have to question where changes in state come from and reject materialism's claim of mind/brain equivalence.  Leibniz 'nisi intellectus ipsi,' if I've googled that right, still doesn't seem answered, either in terms of its creative abilities without any input other than its own, or in terms of the internally combustive force which drives it to bring forth the states that neurologists get to quantify.

guys are sat at their computers looking at porn

they get all excited then

openly hit on anything with a pulse

the internet has fucked up the balance of power

now any woman can fan her ego by posting a pic on the interwebz

even if she is hideous

No.  They know.  Sad

Driving today I saw a chubby girl all dressed up come around the corner on the sidewalk just as she lost her composure and went into tears.  Idk what happened but she was the picture of a young woman who just had her heart broken for the first time and will probably never love trustingly again.  I felt really sad for her.  For all of us, really.  Even though it would have been weird to turn around and ask if she was ok I almost did.  It just seemed like a kind word was all she needed and I would have been boning the hell out of her.

Experimentally it was shown that women were more willing to inflict pain upon others. Something like twice more likely than men...

Also most people will follow orders of an authority figure even if it undermines their morals. See Milgram experiment. (again women proven to be more obedient)

All this said would be nice to see some more analysis and discussion about institutional factors!  Cool

I always wanted to see a psych experiment that demonstrated bias on the part of those who build tests and interpret the results.  Fwiw.

Things like Milgram are slanted to shock.  They're not worthless but the fact that these types of experiments are presented and accepted as some great insight into human behavior says more about the endeavour of psychology than it does about people imo.

Maybe I just have a pathological need to be a contrary asshole but I get the sense with these sorts of things that they're measuring jelly in a container they constructed and then declaring triumphantly that the jelly's dimensions have been uncovered.  By 'science.'

A large portion of the worlds most successful people are psychopaths

Jokes on you.  I'm bonkers and I'm a complete failure.

Don't fuck ugly broads.  Unless she's rich & well connected.  But then don't fuck any other ugly broads.

Dude should have hired me.

Breathe In.  No dirty old man.  Well, maybe a little.

No one seems to remember how slow the first one really was.  That was not an action packed flick.  It barely managed suspense.  It's all cartoonish character charm and low budget panache.  I'm surprised it got picked up as a series at all.

I mean, just look at the statistics!

In this one the gang of badies have a tanker truck of gas and they maraud the wasteland in search of those little bottles of fuel stabilizer.

So how's the carpet installation game treating you?  Hope your clients didn't mind your gf posing at their house.

Ah, cool.  If you discover the secret compound let me know!  Seems like doing some minor shaping is the difference between $150 off the shelf boots and $2000+ bespoke boots.

I could chat with you for the next few hours. I find your interest in electricity to be an acceptable way to spend your time. I see your interest in electricity as a hobby, I also enjoy hobbies. I currently do leathercraft, woodworking and ceramics (though I moved recently and my kiln is not wired). I enjoy creating/building things, you enjoy learning, it's all good.

Are wetting/drying cycles the best way to shape leather boots?  I got some cowboy boots to tune up (Rocky boots, purchasd online) and was thinking of using shoe trees to get them pretty close instead of having to walk them dry several times.  Also seems like they change shape a bit sitting in the closet, so shoe trees would stop them reverting to being uncomfortable?

They were only $150 so I don't mind being mean to them.  Just want an effective way to get the leather to take and hold the shape I want.  Should I be using something other than just water?

a friend of mine spent three months in Malta filming Captain Phillips, they cut his part on the final recut.

For the best.  I spent the last 1/3 waiting for Wilson to come floating by.

In all seriosuness, I appreciate your advice many moons ago.  I think not taking drugs was the right course.  The people I know who are on them have really suffered.  It's a cart/horse thing of course but they're in a bad way all the time.  Hard to imagine a worse result without the pharma.

Idk how to feel now.  I'll see you guys later.

I've always wanted, in the heat of an argument, to whip out with "Silence, squaw!"  She'd probably reach for the tomahawk but it'd be worth it.
