  1. world's always been total shit dude. now tell me, what have you done to resist the megacorps? do you buy from Walmart, Amazon, Target, etc.? or do you always shop locally no matter what? People have never started out equally socially to begin with ever since the begin of society. In other words, a lot of your odds of success simply depend on factors you're born with. That is probably the most fucked up thing about this planet.
  2. Nature or god or whatever you believe it made it so the strong survive and thrive while the weak die. Or as Winston Churchill says "The victors write history." Imagine you were in a tournament with a prize of $10,000. You're in the finals and you have a massive advantage over your opponent. You can give him a fair chance, offer to split the prize (he'd accept), or use the advantage to win the $10,000. What do you do? In other words, to understand the motives for how big businesses make so much and little business don't do as well, you have to understand the mindsets. You have to place yourself in their shoes regardless of what you think.
  3. And that's where you are wrong. It didn't remove regulation; it just changed who gets to do the regulation.
  4. My opinion (please note I support net neutrality and oppose articles 11 and 13): The internet and social media has rapidly changed the way humanity communicates with each other; and while there are many pros (a lot more than there are cons),there are also many cons. Humanity has not fully adapted to this technology, and this has done a great deal of harm. The definition of a "friend" has changed over time; 15 years ago it meant someone you trust and would help during times of need. Even just hanging out. Now, it simply means someone who simply sees what you post on Facebook or other social media. A lot of people have over 500 Facebook friends - how many of them do they hang out with in real life? Probably 1% of that amount if that. I have a Facebook I never use and have 80 or so friends - and of those the only person I spend time with in person is my fiance. Because of the Internet and technology, it's much easier for me to communicate with someone whose physically a quarter or even a half million times farther than it is to communicate with my own neighbor (100 feet distance) whom I have seen once in the six months I've lived in my condo. All I need to do is post an entry on social media, a video on YouTube, or a comment on a discussion board (like this!) and I'm sure someone from India or Australia (both very far from me) will post, but the odds someone from my hometown (population 5000) is very rare. People tend to empathize more with those they literally know in person. Thus, as a result of technology; people's ability to empathize has drastically decreased. Instead of talking face-to-face about how to improve the situation; we literally go on discussion boards or comments sections and insult each other, provoke flame wars, and troll. Ever see the comments section of a YouTube video or an ABC News article? You'll find nothing but insults, and flaming. Twenty years ago, this was virtually unheard of; and when I was a child (in the 90s), I knew both my neighbors. In my opinion, more than anything, this is a wake-up-call to stop completely living in the virtual world; and start paying attention to the real-world. Pay attention by doing things and voting for what you believe in rather than just writing about the next fad on Facebook. While technology is a good thing and we absolutely need it in this day and age, we shouldn't be completely absorbed in it. And which group is most affected by this? Generation Z, followed closely by Millennials. TL;DR version: Because of technology, it's harder to communicate with people close by such as neighbors, and real life empathy has drastically decreased. Technology is good, but not when we are completely absorbed.
  5. we don't care (or even want) you to stay up all night thinking about it. it's not good for your sanity or mental health. but at the same token, you must care enough to vote. just find out how to get eligible wherever you are, register, and get off your rear end and vote. if you want to use doomworld, you must support legislation and candidates that will enable the survival of this site. regardless of where you are from, and regardless of what else you think. otherwise, you won't get it, and nobody will care what you think since you didn't care.
  6. couldn't agree with this more. a lot of millenials who are our age won't even vote. next thing you know, they lose things like healthcare, right to vote, and other stuff. Because they didn't vote.

    Rest in peace, ALMN

    This is very tragic news and I would like to offer my utmost condolences to his family and friends. It's always devastating to hear when we lose one of our own.

    Super Mario 64DooM (PROOF OF CONCEPT WAD)

    A really, really good idea. See how long it takes to make the first level. The level changes depending on what star is selected - you won't see Koopa the Quick unless you pick the second star! Some maps have multiple ways of entering - with certain effects! For instance, Tiny-Huge island the monsters are either really tiny or really big. Wet-Dry world has an effect on water level. You'll also need to account for switches (e.g: metal mario blocks) Cannons appear in every level - you will have to program those.

    UDMF is probably better at this point.

    oh. are you going to make a hub and everything? multiple stars per map?

    you realize there's a huge project called Golden Souls and Golden Souls 2 right?

    you're forgetting some form of entertainment besides alcohol and drugs.

    How are other people emotionally?

    When you are doing more advanced maths such as calculus, or if you are applying physics in a real world problem, you're in big trouble if you need to have a method shown for you. And physics is rudimentary to understanding mechanical engineering. In short, wolfram isn't a substitute for actual conceptual understanding. Just like you can't look up every other word in the dictionary when you read a novel by Stephen King.

    How are other people emotionally?

    People switch majors all the time. My sister was in a mathematics education program for 4 years before receiving her degree in Classics. Needless to say, she's a real estate agent now. In fact, I wouldn't hesitate to say MOST people are unsure of their career path before entering college. But if you have difficulty solving an equation such as solve for y: 6x- 5y = 0; the answer being 5y = 6x -> y = (6/5)x , then engineering will be a struggle. I'd say that's approximately ninth grade math? @Aquila Chrysaetos wolfram is a nice site, but it's much more important to understand the concepts than to simply say "i found out a way to solve it!".

    How are other people emotionally?

    I lack the death anxiety - but the panic over the collapse of Western society is an issue. Although quite frankly, it seems that there have always been problems. But as for me, I just enjoy being with my fiance and will do anything for her. I'm getting married in 3 months. Dooming, awaiting E3, and watching my fiance play the PS3/4 makes me happy.
