@LovecraftsNightmare The owns actual ranch wasn't a casual boast, it was a seed crystal purposefully dropped into the discussion to test whether a Simulacra and Simulation angle would develop among the Philos-ifters, or whether an insult-and-mic-drop pattern would prevail. The results of this thought experiment are now committed to print.
@GayLubeOil You might have tried ‘Only when something is work is it a real thing.’ but that would have nullified your following rebuttal.
If a job is considered work, then it is the most real thing a man can do. Work sacrifices the present for tomorrow so that we might be better than we were today. If we do not work, we will succumb to disease and inevitably death. To work is to find our true creativity and live in the moment, knowing that we (or our people) will benefit from our turmoil.
That is why we work out, so that our bodies are more able to deal with the future. That is why we work, so we are equipped to face the task of feeding ourselves in the future.
A man is more than a commodity because of his labour. He is the backbone, the shoulders, the fire in the eyes of the world and the only being in the universe willing to sacrifice himself for tomorrow.Read More
@CainPrice But let's not inflate the act of growing big muscles to something more than it is. It's an amazing hobby. But growing big muscles isn't your job. It's auxiliary to your job. It's something you do to make you stronger and more disciplined for real things. It is not, itself, a real thing."
Only when something is a job is it a real thing
So it's only real when your being pumped for your surplus values. It's only real when people are making money off of you.
This is a very big yikes from me dog
A city 1000km from Wuhan just declared a full lockdown. This is a lockdown on enter the city. r/China comments
Does anyone want to take a shot at explaining how this new virus will not give China a hard landing?
@VintageNaginta I have no idea how screwed up you were. After the last guy I've given up on trying to figure that out.
Its probably a good strategy to make money efficiently and then to fill in the gaps with lifting (like we do). In the end I see it as a simulation. Simulation doesn't have to mean virtual (and that isn't what I meant). In the modern world its possible to make such a stream lined money making process that there really isn't even a need to put on underwear all day while killing it. Then all of a sudden you have some motivation to do push ups but realize that your dick will be awkwardly and painfully hitting the ground, so you should probably suit up first. In such cases wearing underwear is just pure unrestrained ambition. There isn't much point for the laziest fucks.
Step it up some levels to fully clothed go-getter and even going around taking walks is just to simulate actually needing to go somewhere, because you need to do something that requires getting there. Maybe its just me but its super easy to have life dicked and its just incredibly easy. Its so easy that most of the people who have it as easy as me are in abominable condition. All your calories, information and even women belong to be me (click click click). It can be depressing or funny.Read More
@destraht You take a small pinch and savour it. You revel in having to taint not your lungs with the excessive smoke of poorly processed ditch weed and instead grace them with but a light dusting of combustion byproducts.
Having to use less product to acchieve the desired effects is a no brainer. Its easier on the wallet, it puts less smoke in the lungs (for those who still smoke such as myself) It means my stash lasts longer and my grow room space is not wasted. The flavour is phenonemal when proper care is taken. This is not merely ornamental as the effects of THC, the primary active constituent of cannabis, are modulated in part by the varying levels and presences of a wide range of chemicals called terpenes. Your "neglected ditch weed" has its overall value as a drug, recreational or medicinal, effectively stamped out by inferior processing. Terpenes are aromatic hydrocarbons. If cannabis is not properly dried at a temperature of 16-18 degrees celsius, dropping relative humidity from 70 to 50% over a 14 day period you are literally allowing the value of your product to evaporate.Read More
