I was walking down the streets today and i saw 3 guys meeting up 1 more guy and they all took turns in hugging the 4th guy  Huh Why do they do this?

When did someone decide that a firm handshake is not enough?

I bet if you hug your male friends theres just a matter of time before you start kissing on the mouth just to say hello.

thank you for sharing with us your fears about your weak sexuality identity

So this morning at the gym I accidentally gabbed this guys towel and wiped my face, I said sorry bro my mistake he said thats ok if you dont have a towel we can share it, now I am wondering if its an act of kindness for two sweaty dudes to share a towel or is it weird, what do you guys think.
if he offered you a shared  joint / toke would you be as sensitive?

 If it proves to be mere hearsay, then any mention of this shit is pure hatred towards vagina. As much as I am gay, I can't fathom why any grown man would hate pussy so much.

Look I understand that mentality I was soo fucking hooked on leg training and squats like it was a buzz, but you reach a point where you got to ask yourself the question "what the fuck for"? "Why am I doing this"?

What does it actually achieve?

this dainty dancer should probably ask the same question

Romans 1:24-27 ESV / 13 helpful votes
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Had you thought about forgiveness being central to the teachings of Christ or is that titillating not enough for you?

I have 2 degrees and a Master's degree and got a scholarship to uni, pretty hard to be a downer. I take 250mg per week test now, face still looks like a gopher  Undecided

Hormones are really important to ones health. Speaking of not getting sick.... You are preserved in alcohol and you have bitch tits so obviously have too much estrogen.

are you always this charming or did you make an extra effort on this occasion?

Thanks captain obvious.

We should in that case give the most kudos to the knuckledragger that invented fire, since this inadvertently led to every subsequent invention.  Roll Eyes

I didn't know you discovered how to make fire

If technology is just devices and ideas — ideas which are easy to copy and devices which are easy to ship — why do differences in technology persist between countries, asks Ricardo Hausmann.

There is nothing better than fuzzy language to wreak havoc — or facilitate consensus.

Ludwig Wittgenstein argued that philosophical puzzles are really just a consequence of the misuse of language. By contrast, the art of diplomacy is to find language that can hide disagreement.

One idea about which economists agree almost unanimously is that, beyond mineral wealth, the bulk of the huge income difference between rich and poor countries is attributable neither to capital nor education, but rather to “technology”. So what is technology?

The answer explains the unusual consensus among economists, for “technology” is measured as a kind of “none of the above” category, a residual — Nobel laureate Robert Solow called it “total factor productivity” — that remains unexplained after accounting for other production inputs, such as physical and human capital. As Moses Abramovitz aptly noted in 1956, this residual is not much more than “a measure of our ignorance”.

So, while agreeing that technology underpins the wealth of nations sounds more meaningful than confessing our ignorance, it really is not. And it is our ignorance that we need to address.

In an important book, W Brian Arthur defines technology as a collection of devices and engineering practices available to a culture. But devices can be put in a container and shipped around the world, while recipes, blueprints, and how-to manuals can be posted online, putting them just a few clicks away. So the internet and free trade should make the ideas and devices that we call “technology” available everywhere.

In fact, much of modern growth theory, starting with Paul Romer’s research in the late 1980s, sprang from the idea that output was driven higher by ideas that are hard to come by but easy to copy. That is why inventors have to be protected by patents and copyrights, or subsidised by governments.

So, if ideas are easy to copy and devices are easy to ship, why do differences in “technology” persist between countries? When something upsets a beneficent natural order, humans crave for stories featuring some malign force. For example, the argument in Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson’s book Why Nations Fail is essentially that technology does not diffuse because the ruling elite does not want it to.

They impose extractive (bad) institutions, instead of adopting inclusive (good) institutions; and, because technology may upset their control over society, they choose to do without it. If technology is just devices and ideas, what is holding them back? The problem is that a key component of technology is knowhow — is an ability to perform a task. And knowhow, unlike devices and ideas, neither involves nor can be acquired through comprehension.

The tennis champion Rafael Nadal does not really know what it is that he does when he successfully returns a serve. He just knows how to do it; putting it in words is impossible. As the scientist and philosopher Michael Polanyi would say of such tacit knowledge, we know more than we can tell. So we do not need extractive elites or other evil forces to explain why technology does not diffuse.

Technology has trouble diffusing because much of it requires knowhow, which is an ability to recognise patterns and respond with effective actions. It is a wiring in the brain that may require years of practice to achieve. This makes its diffusion very slow. Knowhow moves to new areas when the brains that hold it move there. Once there, they can train others. Moreover, now that knowhow is becoming increasingly collective, not individual, diffusion is becoming even slower. Collective knowhow refers to the ability to perform tasks that cannot be done by an individual, such as playing a symphony or delivering the mail: Neither a violinist nor a postman can do it alone.

Likewise, a society cannot simply imitate the idea of Amazon or eBay unless many of its citizens already have access to the internet, credit cards, and delivery services. In other words, new technologies require the previous diffusion of other technologies.

That is why cities, regions, and countries can absorb technology only gradually, generating growth through some recombination of the knowhow that is already in place, maybe with the addition of some component — a bassist to complete a string quartet. But they cannot move from a quartet to a philharmonic orchestra in one fell swoop, because it would require too many missing instruments — and, more important, too many musicians who know how to play them.

Progress happens by moving into what the theoretical biologist Stuart Kauffman calls the “adjacent possible”, which implies that the best way to find out what is likely to be feasible in a country is to consider what is already there. Politics may indeed impede technological diffusion; but, to a large extent, technology does not diffuse because of the nature of technology itself.

A combustion engine and a nuclear reactor are light years more impressive than a repeating crossbow or a really big fucking wall built a thousand years ago

but gunpowder came before machine guns etc.

Technology began with apes.

then plot technological development from that time though without a Eurocentric bias

He doesn't have any argument.

All of the famous innovators - the real creators of revolutionary technology have been white.

His excuse is Mao, well who is responsible for that? Asians

when did technology begin?
