  1. No thanks, I think you need practice on doing more in-depth research. You looked at a 25 second video that was cut from the full version (taken completely out of context) from a source that had under 100 subscribers and posted that as your evidence. Please be more careful in posting misinformation.
  2. You understand that he's talking about the $10 billion his foundation gave toward vaccination causes, and that the $200 billion is the estimated economic benefit to the world? He's donated over $50 billion since 1994. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/06/11/fact-check-bill-gates-has-given-over-50-billion-charitable-causes/3169864001/
  3. That seems like a good start. Many topics in the Political Subforum get cluttered by the original news source. If we can find some neutral news sources that are fair, we can eliminate a lot of the unnecessary opinions (Fox, CNN, etc.) of those outside of this forum.
  4. Can you name a few of those? That could be a great new topic to discuss; I doubt most know even where to look. I've been limiting my news exposure but would love to find more unbiased opinions. FoxNews is the worst but CNN is so predictable it makes me gag sometimes.
  5. I would look at this https://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=5137 -Poor urban blacks (51.3 per 1,000) had rates of violence similar to poor urban whites (56.4 per 1,000). I think violence is more aligned with poverty than race. It just so happens that on average white households have much higher income and wealth. So you have to ask, what is the reason for the wealth gap?
  6. You could look at each scale as 0-100. You may be in the 50ish range for a few traits that could lead to different test results. For example the most introverted person is 0 and extroverted is 100. If you are on the border, the examples for that personality type aren't going to be as accurate for you as other people that have more defined traits. You could look at the common traits that keep popping up and focus on those.
  7. Violence (riots, etc) brings about more violence. Some look at it as just more unneeded violence, "see what all this leads to!" Many others aren't encouraging this behavior, yet rather just accepting it as a consequence of built up frustration and injustice over many years. That injustice has caused a far greater amount of pain compared to what these protests have led to.
  8. INTP-T here Famous INTP's https://www.personalityclub.com/blog/famous-intp/ Do all INTPs have a little George McFly in them? lol
  9. Good video, it's amazing how low the effective US tax rate is for billionaires.
  10. You sound smarter than anyone else on this forum...yet so negative at the same time. I would try taking one good thing from him, and compliment that, rather than demonizing the rest... that's very easy to do. His content is superior to 90% of the other crap on Youtube.
  11. This group has so many great ideas. Leo is really helping to stimulate minds, but what are we doing about it? What are some real solutions? Can a forum like this take some real action besides just talking about it? I guess we can just keep arguing about it, meh....
  12. You aren't alone - applications for gun licences in the US are going through the roof. Yet, this seems to be an overreaction to me. There are about 15,000+ murders per year in the US, and not that many due to the recent riots. Just what we need, a lot more scared inexperienced gun owners.
  13. Not sure if he did this already, but I would think trying a 10 or 20 day fast first seems like a better plan, he's going to lose all that muscle.
  14. One police reform could be to use a shoot-to-wound policy in some cases like these. With an officer behind him, and knowing the suspect didn't have another weapon (they already frisked him), I think he could have shot him in the ass or leg. Cops in the US are always trained to shoot-to-stop the threat; usually multiple shots in the chest or back (which often results in death). This would of course require more marksmanship training. That being said, I agree the split-second decisions cops are faced with are extremely difficult. Also, if I start wrestling with two cops, I expect to be dead more often than not. Cases like these would never result with a criminal charge to the officer in the past, but this guy will probably be used as an example.
