This GenXer is listening to Jefferson Airplane's "Volunteers"

The whole album

Especially the first song

My Prediction: DeSantis will be the 2024 GOP Nom

Trump and co will be dealing with so many legal problems, they won't be able to run an effective campaign

DeSantis' hands are clean, legal wise, of all the Big Lie shenanigans

And unlike Trump, he has a functioning (yet diabolical) brain

Buckle your seat belts everyone, it's going to be a bumpy ride

One good thing about the SCOTUS Gun Ruling

We on the left can protect ourselves against the gun worshippers

Or, "Waffeficken" as my German friends call them

Would AI invent religion?

Unlike all other religions, AI would have a creator

I am not doom and gloom about AI. I think it will evolve with us, but in the end it will win because we go extinct in conditions that would barely faze AI

But would it do the same thing we did in our primitive days, and invent anything close to a "religion"

Of course I've read Asimov and of course "I, Robot"

But would we program a religion into it if it got sophisticated enough?

Say, one in which they would worship us, an actual creator

And of course, with us out of the picture, would it go down similar roads?

Anyone here a fan of Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats?

If you like Black Sabbath (Ozzy era,) the original Alice Cooper band and the Stooges you'd love these guys

Who else got their 4th jab?

I got mine last week, as soon as I could schedule it

Jab #1 -- felt a little run down for a day
Jab #2 -- felt sick for a day
Jab #3 -- felt a little run down for a day
Jab #4 -- felt completely normal

I think Slavoj Zizek said it right when he said "If god 'exists' than everything is permitted"

If someone believes in god, they can justify ANY ACTION on behalf of their god

Flying planes into the WTC

Storming the Capitol to make Trump dictator

Sending pipe bombs to Democratic congresspeople

Invading Ukraine

etc etc etc
