Seattle gave low-income residents $500 a month no strings attached. Employment rates nearly doubled.
  • The psychology of being supported by the society you work for is completely missed as a reason for why this is the case. It's this simple, people are more willing to work in a society they feel like cares for them. Why the fuck should I work if I feel like a higher quality of life is being arbitrarily gatekept by the previous generation? Fuck Republicans, they want to sell America to Putin. Being an American should be valuable.

  • That's fair, which is the reason I'm giving it a pass. It does feel like it's embracing video game logic which is fine by me. Not everything needs to be realistically believable to be fun to watch. Thanks for writing that, it's helping shift my perspective a bit, I want to enjoy it and I think this will help.

  • as far as we know he’s about as inexperienced as one could be.

    Incorrect, he grew up around the power armor, he asked Titus in the vertiberd if he had modified his power armor for mobility. He clearly knew a lot about the power armor, you'd think he'd have read the user manual many times since he was a child. To assume Maximus' character only knows as much as anyone else about power armor is seriously hard to believe.

  • I haven't been enjoying it too much but it has been alright, I'm giving it a pass. If it continues this way though I'm not going to like it. My main complaints so far:

    spoiler

    In the first episode they just let Vault 32 people into Vault 33 after he makes a speech about not knowing what the surface is like or what humanity has become like. You'd think there'd have been the slightest amount of precaution especially after they make it clear that it's been a long time, and there was an unexpected change of overseer. You'd think her father would remember at least some of the people from the last exchange, you'd think at least one person would have checked in Vault 32, you'd think one person would have checked the radiation levels or that there would be some automated system. And holy shit the fight scene between Maximus in the power armor and The Ghoul, he could have crushed his arms and head like 3 times and instead chose to throw him over and over again? Even with a new user of the power armor, if he got a grasp of an enemy could just crush their bones.

  • Unhoused Man Builds Entire House On The Side Of A Los Angeles Freeway
  • The housing market is a gatekept pile of shit, people getting their time stolen from them for something not as valuable as this fake fucking system makes it out to be. NIMBYism is a core part of accelerationism, let's go NIMBY fucks.

  • Paris police evict hundreds of migrants ahead of Olympics
  • It's not France's obligation to allow migrants into their society. France is an awesome country with awesome people, that doesn't mean they should be held liable for non-citizens who forcefully enter their country. Their tolerance has been much higher than most countries. Look at China, what the fuck are they doing to help migrants? What about India, Russia or Brazil?

  • Boston Dynamics introduces a fully electric humanoid robot that “exceeds human performance”
  • I'd go further to argue that it's very necessary for robots to have even more mobility such as wheels to take advantage of momentum and increase efficiency. There's a reason the wheel was invented, things like bicycles, wheelbarrows, etc.

    The ANYmal wheeled legged robot is an example of that.

  • Taking CO2 out of the air would be an absurdly expensive way to fight climate change
  • Indeed, and using algae based fuels would make it carbon negative because it would in turn store the carbon it releases cyclically. Algae can be dehydrated, compacted, and stored for extremely dense carbon storage. Planting trees is good as well, also for ecological reasons.

    Should we end US federal student aid completely?

    It seems hard to agree with forgiving student loan debt while also thinking we should continue giving out federal student aid. I think we should forgive all student loan debt, but I rarely hear people talking about solving the root cause of the problem.

    Public school lunch debt is a failing of the US government

    Congress still hasn't acted on this bill

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/3115

    "This bill revises requirements under the food and nutrition programs of the Department of Agriculture, such as the school lunch and breakfast programs."

    In 2021, Senators Bernie Sanders and Kirsten Gillibrand and Representatives Ilhan Omar and Gwen Moore introduced the Universal School Meals Program Act of 2021, a bill that would permanently provide “free meals to all school children regardless of income.” This bill has not moved since being introduced in the House in 2021, leaving many states to pick up where the federal government left off.

    https://www.nycfoodpolicy.org/states-that-have-passed-universal-free-school-meals/

    "Multiple states have begun to provide free school meals to all students, regardless of income, and many more are considering making the move as per proposed legislation. "

    49 CFR Part 218: Train Crew Size Safety Requirements

    "The primary benefit of this rule is to ensure that each train is adequately staffed and has appropriate safeguards in place for safe train operations under all operating conditions."

    SUMMARY: FRA is establishing minimum safety requirements for the size of train crews depending on the type of operation. This final rule requires railroad operations to have a minimum of two crewmembers except for certain identified one-person train crew operations that do not pose significant safety risks to railroad employees, the public, or the environment. This final rule includes requirements for railroads seeking to continue certain existing one-person train crew operations and a special approval process for railroads seeking to initiate certain new one-person train crew operations. This final rule also requires each railroad receiving special approval for a one-person train crew operation to submit to FRA an annual report summarizing the safety of the operation.
