I forget what number we're up to, so I'll arbitrarily re-start the count at 200,000, so this is #200,001.

Not content with spreading NYC's Covid to other reasons, those people are also full of shit: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/25/new-york-hamptons-long-island-sewage-water
I can't handle the arbitrary thread count.
What's next?
Burlap sheets?
No. You can go to the Hamptons, just don't shit there.

I'm fairly sure I could have started in the millions and not been wrong. Humans fuck me off.
Yeah, we don't seem to play well with others.
Yet, so many of us think our destiny is to conquer the galaxy, and beyond.

I wonder what causes that?

I'll take a bet that they're all atheists. There is no god, so put your faith in something that seems a bit scientific.

I think they're probably dumber than theists.
Those who wish to conquer the Galaxy and beyond do have a god. It is called Greed and Avarice.

Also translates as fear.
Poverty consciousness causes people to get greedy. Understandable.
This type of emotional baggage is heavily ingrained. It won't go away overnight...or even embrace a world of plenty...wherein these old issues have been rendered obsolete.

In the summer of love (1967, USA, stanky was there, etc.) all the dudes were pretty stoked about the whole free love groove. Hell, yeah!
Bring on the hippy chicks! Shit, I'm glad to endure listening to Carole King's Tapestry album, if I must.

But there was emotional backlash.
I'd suggest it was mostly from groovy males that didn't realize that 'free love' meant that the groovy hippy chick would also be fucking all your friends.

Is Di in the arena?
She'll like this bit:
It is the human male's tender ego that ruins everything.

I'm not suggesting that the scientific method had a neat way of excluding females.
The 'method' is far too sacred to discuss.
It is sacrosanct. 
The scrutiny of the method will deliver us to the stars! Help us live forever! Grow meat in a lab!

What a time to be alive, people!
The 'method' has brought us to our knees.
Touchy subject.
One that can barely be expressed...even here; in the hippest site there is.

Should I really be skating on thin ice here?
Afraid that sparky won't like me? maybe quit the forum?

I'm drenched in the 'method'. I'm quite qualified to express opinions of the short comings therein.
Science reminds me of the sacred constitution of the US of A.

We could use a few new amendments.
Shit has gone sideways.
Corruption isn't a tenant of the 'method'.
It just happens.
Same like politics, and the sanctity of our sacred constitution.

Sparky, I don't expect a debate from you.
I mostly hope you won't need to run off, in a hissy fit.
I have needs, too.

Kind of bummed that I was kicked out of the church of the sub-genius. I'm sorry, Bob.
I'm now sub-sub genius. There isn't even a church for this.

Yet.

(The team of philosophers at TBP, inc, are working around the clock for a solution. With broad market appeal.)

That applies to some - the likes of Bezos and Musk, definitely - but I think most of them are like the poor saps in the 1950s who hoped for aliens to come and show us how to live, The Day The Earth Stood Still being the pinnacle.

Life is scary, and when you don't have a sky-fairy to make it better, some people look to the stars for hope. Dumb fucks.
The scientific method has nothing to do with it stank. Why do you insist on stirring this particularly worn out pot?
