I was going to get minecraft for windows 10, but I couldn't find a way to do so without logging windows 10 into a microsoft live account.   I have one, but no way in hell I am entering that account information into windows itself.

There will be no Singularity.

Not only are the connections between neurons so astoundingly complex, we still don't understand what most of the neurotransmitters we know about actually do.

It isn't going to happen in the lifetime of anybody who is alive today.  And no, life extending technologies have not extended one single human life beyond the 120ish maximum that any human can seem to live to, and there is no evidence that they will.

I think that statements about things that are contraindicated are hubris.  Especially when you make decisions that affect other people  based on them.  For example, wanting a privilege-based health care system because you think it will let you live longer to make it to Singularity.

I haven't used google maps in a while, and so I discovered that I no longer know how to use it.   Nothing clickable makes sense.

Ah there I can help...you now have to click on the point where you want to see, and in a moment (it's laggy, at least for me), it'll show you a Street View thumbnail in that top left dialogue box.  Click the thumbnail.  It spins you into the Street View which is precisely as much fun as you can imagine it'd be for someone as sensitive to motion sickness as I am. :p

The controls within Street View have changed as well, but frankly those are improved.  It used to be there was a floaty box you could put over things and click to zoom, but it was hard to aim.  Now you can zoom at any point using a little plus-minus control, which I think is in the bottom right corner.

I am very glad to be home from the hospital.

For those who did not know already, 6 weeks ago I called 911 when I smelled gangrene from a badly infected foot wound.  I spent the next 5 weeks and change in the hospital/nursingcare getting IV antibiotics and mostly bedridden (i was kept off my foot).  Nothing had to be amputated, but I had a bone infection which made the antibiotics stronger and longer.

It was a frustrating, boring, depressing, agonizing experience, and to boot my dog Preston had to be put to sleep while I was in there.  I'm not going to detail the infuriating bits, except to say I am not surprised people have to fight for their healthcare in a system where the doctors are incentivized to spend as little time as possible caring for you.  I literally had a doctor cut me off mid-question and flee my room because I was asking too many.

On the other hand, thanks to Obamacare, I am better and my care was covered.  Without it, I would likely have something amputated, and because of that, be in a care facility unable to even get to the bathroom myself.

Now comes the hard task of exercising to get as much mobility as I can, self-discipline has never been a strong suit of mine.  And I am losing my roommate, who has really been helpful with the small things that make a huge difference, like picking up my prescriptions.

So I am facing many scarey challenges and changes.  Life can be that way.

Yeah they probably stabilized your blood sugar long enough for your preferences to change!

Republican ideology is toxic to civilization.   As an example of its consequences, you just have to look at Kansas.   But if you want to see what the rest of us are fighting for, what we could accomplish if they got out of the way, what Republicans keep trying to destroy, just look at:
No other place mixes affordability, opportunity, and wealth so well. What’s its secret?

So this is pretty awesome..

The Humanist Community At Harvard is hosting a little award ceremony to name Anita Sarkeesian their Humanist of the year for 2014.  I like Sarkessian, if only because she pisses off anti-feminists of all sorts to no end.  So yay her.

But it gets awesomer.

Greg Epstein is the Humanist Caplain at Harvard, and is getting the flack for this decision.  There is a tweet war going on as every misogynist is crawling out of their holes to express their outrage about it.   Like I said, every anti-feminist hates her.  But what is amazing are responses as he blocks them.   Like this one:

"@BlueBallSkeptic what we're thinking awarding Anita? Feminism=central to humanism; she=brave/important; & you=blocked if only f/your handle"

Go ahead, read them.  It will brighten your day.  He seems to be having fun.  :)

If you are one of the idiots who think that oil pipelines are safe and Keystone will be good for this country, please consider this.

By far, the environmental destruction caused by pipeline spills is far greater than that caused by rail and trucking accidents.

maybe if you didn't speak to people in a rude way and call them idiots, they'd listen a little more.

Today I am deleting my bookmark for slashdot.  They recently did a Q&A with Brianna Wu, and posted her answers today.  The comments made me realize that I no longer can belong to that community.  I'd rather play CS with some 10 year olds, at least the shit they say is excusable.

I went and had a glance.  Typical crap.  They're really mad that she said being neutral on GG isn't okay.  They're zealoty assholes and always have been.  These days they're also just MRA zealoty assholes.

There is a simple cobble generator design that uses one bucket of lava, and doesn't risk the source block.  Plus, you don't lose so much of your cobble to the lava and you don't need a hole for the water.  And you can have two people work it at once if you like.  The only down side is that it takes more space, but you can leave out the back corner blocks:

Take gamergaters and mra's, throw in new athiests and libertarians, simmer in a broth of self-entitlement and season with a lack of empathy, and you have the new cultural identity of Redpill.  Warning, taking the red pill will turn you into an asshole.
