  • Why do we hate commercials and advertisements?
  • That's awesome. I've heard of some cities doing that, nice to see an example.

  • Why do we hate commercials and advertisements?
  • I had a shower thought the other day; what would the world be like if advertising didn't exist?

    No billboards or giant signs everywhere blocking our views. Content would be better because it wouldn't be interrupted by commercials. But think of how much money is spent on advertising? Companies would have to invest that into other areas to be successful instead, such as cheaper and/or better quality products, or higher wages for their workers. Companies would have to work really hard to get a good reputation so their products could spread through word of mouth instead of using advertising to invade everyone's space.

    I'm sure there's some downsides, but it sounds kind of amazing.

  • Student loan debt may prevent retirement security for millions of older workers, research finds

  • Innovation makes useful things smaller - overconsumption makes them bigger and more meaningless
  • Vehicles have only gotten comically oversized in the US. Are you saying european and asian families do not care about their children?

  • baked tilapia and potatoes
  • I've never prepared tilapia, but it's an interesting choice to leave the head on

  • Innovation makes useful things smaller - overconsumption makes them bigger and more meaningless

  • Thanks, dad
  • Probably an anti-masker

  • What 16th century Ottomans thought Europe looked like on top of an actual map of Europe
  • Pretty close except scandinavia. It's a mess up there.

  • What if the great filter of humanity is to overcome it's own nature that made it the dominant species of the planet and what if that is the universal great filter that makes the cosmos silent
  • I think the evolution of multicellular life is most likely to be the great filter, since it took the longest to develop on earth.

  • I could see benefits and drawbacks
  • Actually you'll just be alone and some chad will have 2-3 girlfriends.

  • Alternative to Google maps?
