As a bonus we will reduce population through the good Communist tradition of calorie restriction aka mass starvation. This will reduce Carbon emissions even further! Win win!

Thing was that I think doom was far from certain. They could dangle offer of switching sides against Germany and probably have gotten the oil issue resolved. They could make some sort of phony peace in China. There were so many things they could do, they chose the riskiest. Basically punch the biggest guy in the room then rely on one decisive naval battle to win it all.

Issue was that Army controlled everything or even more precisely Army officers who really were invested in war in China. Not only that they assassinated anyone who disagreed..

Japan in 1930 was the definition of dysfunctional political system. None of it was Yamamoto's fault, but that was the cards he was dealt.

He was an interesting figure. He knew Pearl was a BAD idea. War with US in general was a terrible idea.. but he had his orders and followed them with a lot of skill and determination. I think we was probably satisfied with his death, in battle quick etc. Not a bad way to go.

The Leadership at the time was to blame for that fuck up, yes US declared oil blockade.. yes they thought it was tantamount to war. But they really really did not need to turn that into shooting war, where their chances were literally zero in long term. Their navy even knew it..

Japan pre war was much more of an Army with a country then Prussia ever was.

The good news is that Corona really fucked SF. Rents are in free fall as tech employees are running away.

There are few people that actually like living there.. rest are there just because you get payed ALOT more then anywhere else(even with taxes and sky high rent factored in)

Just like Seattle it need to rot before it rises again. It has started :) Maybe in 40 years it will be a good city again

I do not know about school boards but if you can, put your kids into a private school. Of course research first what this school is etc but that is only real way to protect your kids from indoctrination, that or homeschool.

I am thinking about running for a school board but just the sheer level of bullshit on there.. I mean I do not want to hate my life. You also need to consider that you will probably get doxed and a local smear campaign will happen against you.

School boards and teacher’s unions are unsalvageable, charter schools, private school, home school is the only way out imo

Btw read recent Thomas Sowel book on Charter schools, brilliant work

His dad used to beat him. But other thing was that he had this unreasonable optimism about him into the old age, like everything will be fine no matter what.

This was in USSR btw, he ended up stoving on a train sneaked off to Central Asia somewhere in Kazakhstan I think.

Parent did find him eventually but by then he had work building the railroad there. He grew up early so he claimed he was 16 and by then(year and a half later) was in charge of a work gang

He is tough as nails. He reminds of my grand dad, man was steel, ran away from home at 13, became pilot, aircraft engineer, at 74 he would swim for an hour daily, was learning programming for fun, was still teaching flight engineers, could make any engine work.

Tough times make strong men, strong men make good times, good times make weak men. Not just America whole of the world is lucky he decided to take this responsibility, too many weak men after this long run of good times. What he did in ME is a miracle

Forget it just go on the podcast, it will be epic!

Rohan has huge reach not only that his listeners connect with him. If Trump talk about how helped UFC survive he is going to get quite a few more people to show up and vote. Not to mention all the jokes at expense of Biden..

It HAS to happen!

Yeah that is a key wait for it to open, sit there and spam click to register. You can also often take courses by correspondence that they will count, or take one credit in summer if you go work somewhere else for summer(I did Calculus that way). You can also ninja audit classes by just showing up and seeing what’s up

My school offered a viticulture course(wine grape growing) it included a lot of tasting.. I never managed to register for that. It would fill up in minutes

Idea is to give you chance to try different things. You can usually take most of those in stuff related to your major.

One of my good friends was majoring in Accounting, took an elective first year Comp Sci course. Graduated with accounting degree but went right back got Comp Sci. Loves what he does, great software engineer.

I was 2 credits away from having a minor in Economics, discovered Friedman’s book though it(one prof was a hardcore Chicago guy, knew some of the Chicago boys crew that created Chilean miracle).

College is what you put into it, it can be amazing or it can be brainwashing bullshit.

Good question. There is a lot of close to hardware related programming that you can do but if you want to get into chip design, for example working for Nvidia or something like that Comp Sci is not the way I think. However since lots of those jobs require Masters degree and Phd preferred anyway Comp Sci will work as undergrad for that, just take Physics and a lot of Math. As example I used to contract for a company that designed chips used in hardware encryption, what I was doing was not really running on those chips but they had lots of guys writing C that did work around the chip. They were all Russian or Israeli funny enough, one was hardcore Ukrainian nationalist used to raise money for fire proof suits for Ukrainian tank crews :o awesome guy, really knew his stuff.

What kind of hardware do you want to work on?

How did it happen that elective was only that trash?

I have a Comp Sci degree but for my electives I could take anything, there were Social Science electives(I took Economics for 2 years and econometrics. Had one prof who was hardcore Chicago school and another who was communist lol but she was fun to debate, had a thick skin old school tankie ) then humanities(Greek myth, I think now I would get ejected for the trolling I was doing in my seminar, still was fun) other electives I used on Physics 101 and more Comp Sci 4th year courses.

I advice any kids I talk to to take statistics in first and second year, basically any major benefits from being able to understand it and use it.

I hear you. I was born in Kiev. I passed by baby yar almost every week. My family had a lot of friends who were survivors and many that left to Israel. Some were corrupt as fuck commies, most just used party affiliation to be able to live.

Personally I always admired the Israeli survival instinct. American leftie Jews are idiots because Trump has done more for Jewish state security then anyone since 1973.

These fucks think that bloodbath that happened in Europe can not come for them in America. Silly kids.

For every sick fuck Soros there are tens of thousands of hardworking smart, honest Jews. Yes there were many commie assholes Jews but Stalin was Georgian and most politburo Russian. Mao and Khmer were definitely not Jewish :o

Anyway respect, fuck antisemite fucks.

Here is some downvote material. I will take an honest Muslim over any socialist/Marxist fuck any day of the week, be he white, American, European or whatever. Whatever sick pedo Mohammed did Stalin did 1000 times worse.

It is a tech limitation. But thing is.. is minimal collateral desirable?

USA firebombed Tokyo and killed something around 100k people in 1day. That hits.. that gets through the bullshit. If Bush or Obama or whoever used same approach in Afghanistan or Iraq maybe result would be different. There was no reason for Marines to have been clearing Falujah, place should have been turned into a parking lot with air power. I guess we learned with Mosul when ISIS came. Anyway going Genkhiz khan on people works. Everyone is brave till they get genocided and ground salted.

To make sure the damn thing is safe. Look COVID is not smallpox it does not kill 30% of people.. you need to make sure that the vaccine does not kill too many people or the trade off is not worth it.

I am not sure about years but November seems wildly optimistic, I would be glad to be proven wrong though.

They hate Everyone. They do hate west Europeans in particular. How it was always explained to me was that British and French back stabbed them during Crimean war. Russia could have taken Constantinople and made it Christian again if not war then allying with Turks. They always thought themselves to be third Rome, that particular insult never went away.

Russians are nobody’s friend. They hate Chinese that is true. But they hate Americans or anyone outside of Russia for that matter just as much.

Americans do not get just how fucked to the core culture after 70+ years of commie shit is. Whole country is one mental institution.

I was always amused by all the fools who went to invest into Russia then got fucked. That is what you get working with russians, you get fucked hard.
