  1. I highly doubt that. Where did you pick up the idea that a humans should live to 147? As far as I know the oldest Massai are 50-60 and the oldest person alive is like 120, could be wrong though.
  2. Almost every bit of health we have is precisely a result of our "deviation from nature" (whatever this even means). 90% of us would already be dead if it wasn't for a delibate deviation from "nature" for the better. The naturality of a thing says nothing about whether that thing is good for you. In addition, consider that eating exclusively raw meat is not even all that "natural" after all.
  3. Keeping it simple, the most important areas to study to master life in my opinion are: (Personal) Psychology, sociology and philosophy Government, tax, law and economics Finance and markets Business and entrepreneurship Leadership, charisma and relationships Technology and its implications Science Religion History Art Fitness and Nutrition
  4. I find that regret minimization (Google it) is a more useful framework.
  5. No, regardless of what race you belong to. But I think it is possible to develop an awareness for one's biases and consciously reduce them to a minimum such that they become largely unproblematic. I think my racial bias is pretty low to be honest, close to zero. But there are other biases that are also important and shouldn't be neglected. For example, I noticed that I am sometimes biased towards younger people like juniors or interns at my company, and sometimes I prejudged their competencies, which is a lot more problematic than a minimal amount of racial bias, in my case.
  6. What context? The video doesn't really provide much more. Do you know what relationship she has with her black students or do you think you know? If we were honest, we would admit that we all probably know less than 1% of what really happened. So, let's not fabricate stories in our heads here.
  7. Guys, are we really debating this? For all we know, she once said "blacks" instead of using the slightly more politically correct "black people". We clearly lack context here, so pretty much everything else is interpretation, speculation and projection. Let's give that women the benefit of the doubt at least.
  8. I don't understand the issue to be honest. Is it that she used the term "blacks" instead of "black people"?
  9. I think it does, but not in the way the UFC is marketing it. Gambling on fighters, random hot girls that do nothing besides being there for show, all the staged pre-fight aggression bullshit and fake personal conflicts between fighters, gear that is designed to make fighters punch and bleed more (like the UFC gloves), all this stage orange shit would need to go in order to make it more conscious.
  10. I love my little ritual of making a great, simple and pure coffee in the morning. Is daily coffee consumption unhealthy? Maybe. But the enjoyment and relaxation I get from it are certainly very healthy.
  11. Basically stage orange
  12. I'm not surprised to be honest. Some industries are booming precisely because of the pandemic, e-commerce in particular. And the asset inflation we're seeing also makes it "easier" to become a billionaire on paper.
  13. @Boethius @Boethius Do what you think it is right, but it's obvious that not eating fish is one of the best things you can do at an individual level and that "sustainable fishing" is a myth made to make you feel better and keep you consuming these products. I'm not saying you have to go vegan, but maybe wonder why it is that you're resisting these ideas so vehemently.
  14. This is wishful thinking. The best long-term solution to overfishing is to drastically reduce the demand for fish. And the best way to do that on an individual level is to stop eating it. You can still do the partition in addition. I'd argue that it's also better for you given how contaminated fish is these days. Not to mention the benefit of avoidance of countless deaths of sentient beings.
  15. Having reached a point where 87% of fisheries in the world are fully exploited or overexploited, I don't think there's anything related to fishing that we can do in the ocean that you could remotely call "sustainable". At this point the sustainable thing to do is to just leave it alone. You don't need the heavy metals and toxins you get from fish in your body anyways. And let's not forget the that, as a consumer, in practice, you have no way to determining if the seafood you buy is "sustainable" as the documentary has shown.
