The BellEnd Curve - some say its not racist....but its still a shitty book, verily.

2021.12.06 15:08 StephMujan The BellEnd Curve - some say its not racist....but its still a shitty book, verily.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBc7qBS1Ujo
Yes, its 2 and half hour long, dismantling every argument the book claimed.
I am not going to question the author's integrity or alleged "racism", because as with any rational intellectual Darkwebber, I prefer to address the actual claims, not what I think are the actual claims or what the authors may/may not do in their secret cabal meetings.
In conclusion:

  1. The book is based on terribly bad, outdated and very very biased reductionist studies. If you've actually read their sources, it would blow your mind how ridiculously bad the data are. (one hour into this video and you'll know why)
  2. A lot of the studies are very sussy, funded by sussy people (known eugenicists and supremacists) for sussy purposes, though this cannot be used as a factual argument against their claims (as a rapist can still say rape is wrong and it would be wrong), it would at least make one question why they didnt include non sussy studies (objective ones) to back their claims? This is not helping the author's conclusion.
  3. But most importantly, even if we ignore all the ridiculously bad data and sussy studies, the final policy proposal of this book is extremely unfounded and unjustified. Its as if they just make these proposals based on whatever preferences they may have WITHOUT using any of the so called "evidence" of racial genetic IQ mentioned in all previous chapters. Ex: our evidence for racial genetic IQ is bad and inconclusive but we think you should definitely adopt these policies as if its true anyway, heuheuheu. What? lol
  4. The incoherent "evidence" and self contradictory conclusion of this book is enough to make me regret wasting days of my life reading it. I dont even care if its racist or not, its just a BAD book.
I used to give this book a benefit of a doubt because Sam Harris, Coleman Hughes and many respected IDW-er interviewed the authors and gave it high praise.......until I've actually read the book, its criticism, its supporter's arguments and finally this video.
Do I believe that Genes and IQ are heritable? Of course, that's basic biology.
Do I believe that some races have higher IQ than others? Of course, that's basic biology. (wait, hear me out)
Do I believe that racial differences in IQ is due to unchangeable immutable written in stone genetic until the end of time? NO!
Why? Because there is no evidence for it, 100s of reputable geneticists and scientists agree and criticized this book because of its author's (two nonscientists that did not consult the experts) wild claims and policy proposal.
I dont know if the authors are racially motivated or good/bad people, but it doesnt matter, I dont really care, because this book is a SHITTY book based SHITTY data and SHITTY conclusion. That's all any of us should care about, the quality of the product.
Let the authors speak at university or whatever, I support free speech, let them argue for their claims, then defeat these claims with good evidence and counter arguments.
Last personal thoughts: Anthropologists and geneticists have pretty much concluded that all humans came from Africa, about 200k years ago, they spread out to other continents when they were still connected via land bridges. If for some reason we can prove that there are significant racial differences in IQ due to their genes (still not proven as of 2021), it would STILL be due to ENVIRONMENTAL factors, because we came from the same gene pool in Africa, the only differences is in which environmental factors and HOW LONG did it take to change our genetic IQ.
My personal policy proposal for the human race would be to develop technologies that could increase the IQ and health of ALL races, regardless of what evidence we may find about their genes. Because it would be Beyond STUPID to waste human resources by creating segregated IQ classism and letting nature decide our fate. Think Elon musk and his Neuralink project, how it may one day make all of us geniuses and what this will do for human civilization when BILLIONS of enhanced cyber humans contribute to progress. I dont give a fuck about your race, as long as you are smart enough and kind enough to help out, genetically or cybernetically enhanced.

2021.12.06 15:08 Husein-Kapetan Manager wastes paper and steals my idea

I worked at a bank as a universal banker. So I was a teller and a banker. We used “permission statements” to ask clients about their financial needs and would have to track how many clients we ask, how often does it start a conversation, how often it converts into a sale etc. My manager wanted a way to track our sales. So she literally took notebook paper, wrote out 1-30 on the top right for the days of the month, wrote down the key metrics on each page by hand. She then photocopied it 8 times. We had to add up everything at the end of the day and month. You know how ridiculous it was that I was carrying a booklet everyday at work. After 3 days I got so annoyed. I told my manager to give me 15 mins and I made an excel file that did all the math for you, it was saved to our personal drives so we didn’t have to carry it. You couldn’t lose it. My manager said most people would not like it and that her way was better but she’ll allow me to use it if I want. Everybody in my branch used my branch. I even overheard her once that I was undermining her authority.
The worst part of this was I went to a different branch to cover some missing employees. I saw some of the people there were using my excel file. I obviously was like oh cool I made that. Then one of my coworkers said “no I thought your manager made this”. I couldn’t believe it until I read the email she sent out to the whole district. She claimed she worked long and hard on this program. She was bragging so hard. The thing is there was a huge email chain and everyone was talking about how advanced it was and how crazy it is she made something so “complex”. The most complicated thing on there was the =sum( command.
TL;Dr: boss made loose leaf booklets to track sales. I made an excel program that did the same thing and manager stole the credit.

2021.12.06 15:08 Mcgoobz3 Heath Ledger's Joker wasn't Oscar worthy

I really enjoyed Heath Ledger as the Joker and The Dark Knight was really good, but I think he only got the Oscar because he was dead. It's of course heartbreaking that he passed away, but I really think he only got the award because he died and would not have been a recipient if he had not died. I don't really think awards should be given just because some one passed away and I think the claim that the character drove him to further mental decline is a bit of a stretch too.

2021.12.06 15:08 Skirt_Go_Spinny Issue using vertex weight to offset geometry with geometry nodes

I am trying to use vertex weight to offset objects with geometry nodes. I have some objects arranged in a grid and I want to use the weight map and lift them up accordingly. I did this in blender 2.9 but it seems to be more complicated in 3.0. I have a node setup that does exactly what I want when I use a musgrave texture as an input but when I try to use the vertex group as an input it doesn't work. I added a input in the group inputs, made it a float type like I saw recommended somewhere (which I found rather weird but whatever) and linked it to the vertex group.
However, when I do this it it doesn't work, it seems like the value is just equal to 0. I'm not sure what to do as it is clearly referencing the correct thing (the vertex group) but it seems to not recognize that it has any value).
In 2.9 I just had the vertex group as the factor to blend between two positions.
I've tried google-ing this but I've come up short

I purchased my Spark and am awaiting for it to arrive. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max and an older Samsung S3 tablet. I have read that the app can be hard to use in a phone and works better in a tablet but I don’t know if my S3 will work very well due to the app’s original issues with android. Is my phone fine, will the S3 work, do I need to buy a new iPad? What’s your advice?
