This fascinating theory suggests modern depression was evolved in response to defeat, to prevent the defeated from trying again!

Excellent article, however I'm struggling to understand how this quote is correct:

"The Internet is currently estimated to be 5 million terabytes (TB) of which Google has indexed roughly 200 TB or just .004% of its total size."

Am I missing something, or has everyone else?

As I understand it the global volume of internet data next year will approach a zettabyte (and that's in a single year).

Either way, thanks for your attention and again for this excellent and important article.

Hey +Dennis Cagan , you look great!  
So in your proof that God exists, I wanted to comment on your question that asked “who in fact told the first person [that the earth was once covered in water]”.  

I guess I'd like to know why we need to assume anyone “told” the first person such a thing?  Instead, couldn't the story have been invented?  Maybe it came from some Mesopotamian version of Stephen King?  

I mean, maybe there was such a dude that lived in the then coastal city of Ur, and maybe this dude loved telling stories but hated manual labor.  He would do anything to get out of yanking dirty stuff to eat out of the ground duty, or pulling large rocks whilst being flogged duty, or even basic fanning the creepy ruling class who routinely denigrated and spat-on him duty, whatever; such a dude would have major incentive to tell killer stories.  I think we're in agreement there?

Well, in such a scenario the guy would want to invent a story that appealed to a prevailing fear at the time, a fear of water.  Back then Ur was a coastal city constantly flooded by an overflowing Tigris and Euphrates rivers, routinely being ruined and wrecked by what might have seemed an inevitable return to submersion.

A story which told of all land being covered in water might have garnered a huge draw. So he'd keep telling the story, evolving it, and despite his attempts to retain authorship rights, IP and copyright enforcement being what it was at the time, he'd have likely had a serious bootlegging problem.  

Of course, technology being what it was at the time, bootlegging would probably be in the form of a dude hearing the story from our dude, then wandering back home to his family and/or village and being like “so I thought of this killer story while I was wandering around in the desert” or whatever.  A Sumerian version of viral video perhaps?

So Christian my friend, do you actually believe that over 3,500 years ago, someone made up a story? And that in those times the story made its way - fairly unaltered - to several other locations around the world, and was written down - in other languages. And, that very story was scientifically proven to be true about 3,500 years later. I cannot imagine that.

While not a traditional nootropic, I think many of you not yet familiar with tDCS will find this fascinating:  http://www.christianhunter.com/2014/08/overclocking-your-brain-with-tdcs.html

Reading some of the ignorant and hurtful comments on this board brought me right back to the 90’s when, as a teen, I suffered through terrible acne. 

I remember waking up every morning for years where the very first thing I’d do, before even opening my eyes, was to bring my hands up to feel my face…what I felt would basically inform me whether that day was going to be okay, or hell.

For those of you who don’t have acne, you need to understand that those who do have it ALMOST CERTAINLY know more about their condition than you do, usually A LOT MORE!  So while you’re only trying to be helpful in offering your opinions, when you remark something like “Your goals shouldn't consist of hiding, but fixing. Appearance-wise, not everything can be fixed, but acne is one of those things that can.” You’re implying that if we only knew what you know we wouldn’t be plagued with the daily nightmare that acne is.

Those type comments imply (if not directly claim) that our acne wouldn’t be as bad (or would go away) if we just did X, or stopped doing Y.  The fact is, unbelievably, it’s 2014 and acne still isn’t curable  (the closest thing to a cure, Accutane, was banned by the FDA).  

I haven’t had a single blemish in years; thankfully for me, it did go away.  But my skin’s fate was, as it is for so many others, entirely written in my genes.  At 17, my breakouts stopped almost as fast as they started.

I learned many lessons but thought I'd mention how helpful Retin-A turned out to be for me.  It worked wonders AFTER the breakouts stopped (I don’t think it helped so much during).  Back then I could barely afford the cream so I’d just use it on my face (which now has zero scars or discoloring); my neck is proof Retin-A worked; as it's still pockmarked (like my father’s is) pretty bad.  Were it not for Retin-A I’d probably look like Edward James Olmos or something!

Barf.

This documentary has about as much to do with Transhumanism as contemporary Christmas does Christianity. 

Silliness.  Belief in the movement as they describe requires just about as much faith as any other religion.  They give nods to Hinduism, the soul, and pay respect to barbarism and legacy mythology throughout...apparently this is the kind of documentary you get when a bad take on H+ collides with really good weed.

I haven't gamed in about 8 years and have to say I would have thought the graphics and physics would look better than this.  This looks like BF2.  The difference in gameplay quality in 2007 vs 2015 is nothing compared to the difference in quality between 1999 and 2007!

These ads epitomize the broken mentality that caused the massive dot com bubble.  I remember shouting at the screen whenever these ads came on (which seemed to run with greater frequency than even McDonalds or Coke at the time); clowns like these were helping spoil it for an entirely new industry.  

I wonder if the execs of this abomination got away unscathed?

Perhaps I'm in the minority but I thought "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" was a fantastic and wildly entertaining movie, so I was delighted to learn Russell Brand would be doing this interview in Aldous Snow's character...hilarious!  

That was of course until I realized he wasn't pretending to be a delusional, pompous, media-Frankenstein...this guy was friggin serious.

"The idea of something glistening yet visceral" said Brand of something about absolutely nothing. And those gems kept coming...

Will someone please, console me, please tell me he's just doing an homage to Joaquin Phoenix..or perhaps something even more benign and respectable, like a heavy mescaline habit?

Anyone?

Bragging rights
Can wrap pinkie toe over fourth toe with relative ease (references available upon request). Became a "top reviewer" on Amazon.com to cover up a drunken fib about being "top ranked" before I was...I thought it'd be easy but it took three years and over 150 book reviews to finally become one! Only then did I confess to the lie. Oh, and I never had so much as a single drink of alcohol until I was 21 years old.
