• What's the deal with that mini timeline video on only some youtube videos?

    On some videos when you hover the cursor over the timeline, you see a preview so you can easily find the spot you're looking for, skip intros, etc. On others it's not there. is it an error in page loading when it's not there? Is there an official name for the feature? Is there a way to turn it on or off?

  • Isn't faith a rejection of uniquely human traits?

    Think about it. There are animals that can do literally everything better than us; sight, hearing, smell, even memory retention. The ONLY thing we do better than any other animal, is think; Only we can ask questions, second guess, and plan for the far future. When you have faith, you're taking something at face value and agreeing not to question... show more
    Think about it. There are animals that can do literally everything better than us; sight, hearing, smell, even memory retention. The ONLY thing we do better than any other animal, is think; Only we can ask questions, second guess, and plan for the far future. When you have faith, you're taking something at face value and agreeing not to question it. You don't need answers because you have faith. That is a rejection of what makes humans unique in the animal kingdom, a rejection of the special abilities god afforded us. It's very confusing, god giving us the superpower of questioning, and then telling us not to question him. God is the most important thing we should be questioning. Something so important as god should be verified a hundred billion percent. Faith has no place or function in determining the truth.

  • Why do they put fluoride in drinking water?

    Last time I checked, teeth are not in your stomach. Also, people don't usually swish water in their mouth unless they're already brushing their teeth. How does fluoridated water help your teeth, by passing them and resting in your stomach to be absorbed by your body?

  • Do "guns don't kill people" people realize they're not arguing the issue, but instead semantics?

    No one is saying guns get up by themselves and kill people. Lemme tell you MY saying- "Guns don't make you safe, they make you dangerous.". Following that logic, I think all gun owners should be forced to take regular psyche evaluations and added to a federal database. Gun owners SHOULD feel like criminals.

Following that logic, I think all gun owners should be forced to take regular psyche evaluations and added to a federal database. Gun owners SHOULD feel like criminals. Owning a gun is dangerous, and so should not be easy. Back ground checks and waiting periods don't do sh*t. just because someone has not done something before, or just because they have to wait to do it, doesn't mean they never will. You don't get to put everyone else's life at risk just to make yourself feel safe. "gun control" is a misnomer, too. It's not gun control vs gun rights, it's public safety vs gun rights.

  • Why are daytime and night time commercials different?

    Is it because the night ones are better to brainwash you with as you sleep? I never understood people who leave the TV on when they go to bed and let the ads drill into them all night. you wake up with a craving for chocolate or whatever you were brainwashed with as you slept.

  • What is the body, but a meat puppet for the brain?

    What is a soul? How is it defined? What is it made of? where is it located in the body? I don't care if my soul survives, as long as my consciousness does. And really, I accept that even consciousness probably won't survive my physical death. The mind is generated by the brain, science knows this for a fact these days.

    Interactive art has existed forever. "oh well they have art in them" you have obviously never heard of the unreal engine. It made games move flow much more beautifully, but it works in the background. even writing computer code can be artistic. Have you seen Portal? it's a game with a wormhole gun that shoots 2 connected portals and you go through mazes and problem solve. They had to develop the mechanics and the lighting and the gravity just to allow for smooth passage between portals. It's not exactly a science, so what would you call it? I would call it art, the way they find creative solutions to problems. the way the player interacts is also part of the art. I don't understand how there can be any doubt that video games are anything but high tech interactive art.

  • How can anyone say video games cause violence?

    They used to say the same things about comic books. and TV. and music. I could make a game that simulates shooting up a school, and if anything shootings would go down because potential shooters couold maybe get their fix without hurting anyone. If someone is gonna use it as "target practice", they should already be in therapy.

  • Gun owners- Do you have a detailed knowledge of human anatomy?

    It's easy to know where to shoot someone to kill them, but do you know where to shoot someone to keep them from bleeding out? If you're going to use a lethal weapon as your main defense, it might help your conscience to know how to use it non-lethally. Couldn't you buy alternative non-lethal bullets, too? Why is overkill necessary?

    Really, the election is always decided by the electoral college. Usually they agree with the people, that's why we never notice it unless they override us and silence our collective voice. When you pick a presidential candidate, you're not picking them. you're picking some random rich person in the shadows who was chosen by other rich people, and is expected and supposed to vote for the given candidate. Since you can't force someone to vote a certain way, they get a measly $1000 fine when they vote against their pledge. This is a serious problem in american politics, and it's a pressure point where you can pressure people with money to vote how you want. no one should be able to override the american people's votes. I never voted for an elector, why do they get to speak for me?
