Richard Price on The Moth: Bicycle Safety on Essex


Essex is the next stoplight downstream from me. Price describes the cops waiting at the end of the bridge, watching cars come from Brooklyn, looking for a pretext to pull someone-over & scrutinize them. That's outside my window, most mornings, starting at 8 a.m, the copcar loudspeaker: "Blutoyo Tapullova Todaleft!!! DaLeft! Blue Toyota Pull Ova To Da Left!" No respect for anyone still sleeping upstairs.

It's a super-important, necessary, public safety duty. Unless there's a chance of rain. Then fuck it, they don't bother.

And just how much footage of cops doing an ordinary good job is shown? Nearly 1 million LEOs in the US, hundreds of millions of LEO-civilian interactions per year, yet you've determined the entire fucking institution "is in desperate need of reform" based on some attention-grabbing clips shared on twitter.

For some perspective, there's a cable TV show of raw, live police activity, Live PD. The restraint and patience shown by most LEOs is more than most folks could muster.

As for the 'itchy trigger finger', there are about 500 officer involved shootings in the entire goddamn United States. The overwhelming majority were incidents where a crime was in progress, the perp was armed, and innocent bystanders were in peril. In contrast, about 150 officers are killed by perps in the line of duty per year.

I don't know about your experiences, but it seems the folks who are always whining about how the cops shoot too quickly (or didn't shoot the perp in the hand or the leg) have: 1) never fired a gun; 2) never been in a situation where a split-instant decision meant life or death.

I'm curious - for all the times I've heard unwashed hippies railing against the police, I've yet to hear a proposed solution (realistic, achievable, not susceptible to the same problems found within current police systems etc) or anything beyond the generic "we need to reform it" mantra.

Police are human, fall foul of the issues we're all prone to and unless you're suggesting a real-life Robocop, you're pissing in the wind and/or virtue signalling.

Also of note - for every corruption example raked across the media coals, there are uncountable events wherein the cops do a sterling job. It's like we always said - you're only as good as your latest fuck-up. By all means, hate the bad apples but be careful with the broadbrush.

Just my 2 cents.

Hippies.

12 minutes into Sargon with Silverman...

I'm fascinated by Silverman's little malapropisms. He garbles ideas in ways that 'you know what he meant', but are eyebrow-raising if taken literally.

In defense of feminism, Silverman reverses the usual "Equal pay for equal work". His version-- "Equal work for equal pay"-- sounds like an MRA!

I picture female co-workers being paid on Friday, then required to come in on Saturday to catch-up with the men-- on lifting heavy stuff & solving technical problems.

I could carry-on this schtick about how cops are violent organized terrorists-- but the thought of doing-so seems tiresome at the moment.
FWIW, I'm awake because of a noisy 3a.m. beatdown on the street. I was so tired from working in the sun all day, the noise went on quite-a-while before it roused me. It just the usual nightly background noise on this block.
The cops didn't come this time. I hoped they would-- not for justice or safety-- but just to pile more noisy violent shitheads on the noisy violent shitheads.
Yesterday (or the day before?) there was similar fight-- that one was a pack of black or latina women screeching and really going at it. Ended with red cop lights flashing on my ceiling.

All the defenses of some cops being professional, well-trained, better-than-nothing, underpaid, etc. ...could also be applied to certain gang members or terrorists or random lone thugs.

Well, it's a corruption by power. You don't start out with grade A raw material. Nobody becomes a cop because they were too smart to become a neurosurgeon or too compassionate to become a social worker. It's like most professions, the people who become cops are exactly the people who shouldn't be cops. I think Murray Rothbard said people tend to do the thing their least suited for.

So the community college tyros completes, what?, four months of training and suddenly, fuck, people respect me! People are afraid of me! Their hands shake when I talk to them! I'm a fucking rock star! I can gloss over most of the law and just do what I want. 99% of the time I get away with it, no questions asked!

It's all too much for the average schmuck.

What do y'all think about this Brooke Skylar Richardson case, where a cute blond cheerleader killed and then burned and buried her newborn baby? She's been found not guilty of murder, but it sounds like a really cutesy little inbred Ohio town, where some good old boys just beat the shit out of a network cameraman trying to take video of her.

This is the most retarded thread you could say that in. On Balance, the people whose lives are destroyed by the cop in that video are not better off thanks to police.

Also, if you mean me specifically, that ~I~ am better off with police than without them... sure, technically that's true. But that doesn't reflect-well on the police. It's true because I'm an opportunist who is individually able to thrive in the corrupt police-infested environment. Police cause problems which people pay me to avoid or fix. It's an artificial economy created by corruption. But most people aren't able to walk-between the blue raindrops, like I do, maaaaaaan.

The following quote is from Silverman's website. In the Atheist Republic interview, Silverman paraphrased it, but omitted the name 'Richard', instead saying the quote referred to a previous boyfriend of "R" (aka the former Mrs. Dillahunty/Beth Pressman). I'm curious whether it refers to Richard Carrier. Ideally, Carrier will deny it's true-- and call her a whore-- and then sue Silverman for libel!

I really think what burns them more than anything else is that not only is Peterson wildly successful, he's mostly been borne upward by young men, who find his drivel? helpful, for whatever reason. What helps young men--evil evil young whitey white men--must somehow harm women; it's got to!
[/quote]

As usual, they are completely ignoring that he is vehemently opposed to any form of politics based on group ID, which would include misogyny and racist politics, but then their real beef is that he also opposes their identity politics.

No doubt Peterson sometimes says some silly things. Overall he is a strong positive influence IMO because he not only opposes bad ideas, he points to concrete ways for people to improve their own lives and the lives of others. He himself freely admits that he isn't saying anything new at all, just that nobody else seems to have the courage or inclination to be telling the young what they need to hear. He is Tony Robbins without the bullshit, Rhonda Byrne without the mystical wooey abdication of responsibility. He has a mass following and he is telling his followers that they have every reason to be bitter at life and that they can do something to avoid the bitterness. Most "inspirational" speakers soft soap the first part and/or provide magical thinking as a solution to the second.

I don't think Peterson denied that he is susceptible to the problems plagueing the human condition or that people sometimes need external help. His message is more that not taking responsibility for your life is always going to be worse than the alternative.

Good article from Andrew Sullivan:

https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/09 ... -kids.html
Like any religion, wokeness understands the need to convert children. The old Jesuit motto (sometimes attributed to Voltaire) was, after all, “Give me the child for the first seven years and I will give you the man.” And so I was moved but not particularly surprised by George Packer’s tale of a progressive school banishing separate restrooms for boys and girls because this reinforces the gender binary. The school did not inform parents of this, of course:
I think there is a trend of pushing back against some of this. I'm not sure if it is trend yet. I wonder is what the kids now in elementary school will think once they are adults? Will they be brainwashed, or will they feel like they were propagandized?

I'm neutral on Peterson as well. He makes some good-to-great points, has some nutty ideas I look askance at and is generally at worst harmless, as far as I can tell. I don't get the Peterson hate, from left or right. Misogyny to suggest makeup is a sexual signal at work? That the pay gap is an accounting artifact based mostly on preference? That women prefer successful and based men who have exited boyhood? That a social hierarchy exists and alters behavior? This is what makes Peterson a threat to women?

I think there is an idea that you either have to be an acolyte or a hater. you can't be someone who sees some good, some questionable, some bad, and some meh in someone.

For Peterson I don't see anything I would say is bad. There is much good. He made me think about myths/legends/symbolism and their possible evolutionary origins. I'm sure he's not the only person talking about it, but it was the first real exposure to it. Much of his other stuff is simply reciting the literature. It is only controversial in relationship to woke nonsense.

The questionable is his obtuseness on some subjects, like belief in god. I think part of it may be that he does not want to drive away people who are religious, but in my opinion he essentially is an atheist. He is certainly not a fundamentalist or a church-goer. But he seems to obfuscate that whenever asked.

[Anita] Davison says she was alarmed by the sight of the flyers and immediately ripped them down.

“Most people have been supportive of the decision to take them down,” she said. “Others have said that I’m not for free speech but I really am. I just feel like that was on the side of hate speech.”
Hate speech is free speech, you ignorant twat.

I am having a debate about posting this on Twatter. If I do I know I am going to get some phone calls.
I think this is another trolling campaign like "It's OK to be white". If you disagree with "Islam is right about women" then do you agree that "Islam is wrong about women"? I'm sure both propositions will be labeled Islamophobic.

The fairy story is that these kids just spontaneously organized a global protest on their own, cuz the gr'ups were failing them. But of course the protests were organized by adults.

Same with the March For Our Lives, which supposedly was founded and is run by survivors of the Parkland FL school shooting. Turns out MFOL is the creation of a few long-time (adult) anti-gun extremists and Hollywood lefties.

Pastafarians and Satanists just make atheists look petty, puerile, and condescending. Public parodies of religion will not help promote church-state separation, but will instead galvanize religious folks to circumvent it. Further, participating in religious invocations only helps establish their legitimacy.

Right, "poor" JP. PZ, you're a nasty little man. To be honest, I can see myself writing something similar about PZ, something mockingly banal and superficially sympathetic. Actually, I believe I've done that in the past, but not as a blog post and not with notoriety. Pz, you're a transparently horrid little man.

By the way, when I had troubles with depression and anxiety I read many a testament to the ideal therapist: those who struggled with and grappled successfully with the same difficulties were held at premium. That Peterson has dealt with demons himself makes him more valuable, not less.

Wait...so you can't tell the difference between a man and a woman by looking at their brains, but you can tell the difference between a man and a woman by measuring their colons (from the article):
According to the work of Dr. Robynne Chutkan, an integrative gastroenterologist and the author of “Gutbliss,” women’s poop anxiety might not simply be cultural or even psychological. It could be physical, as there are actually some profound differences between the female and male digestive tracts, beginning with the length of the colon, which is longer in women (Dr. Chutkan calls it the “voluptuous Venus”).

...

The Pastafarian invocation followed one in June from Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana that caused about a dozen people to leave the assembly chamber in Soldotna in protest when she invoked "Hail Satan" in her opening prayer.

...

The Flying Spaghetti Monster church, called FSM for short, was formed in 2005 as a response to the Kansas State Board of Education's hearings on evolution in schools. Its founder sent a letter about FSM as a way to argue against teaching creationism in biology classes, the Homer News has reported.

...


He then ended the prayer with: "Ramen."
