where as under capitalism advances in automation have no benefits for workers

socialism would allow workers to take advantage of the tech we already have to significantly reduce the workload

simultaneously a massive amount of labor is done to carry a small group of grotesquely wealthy individuals, socialism eliminates this

another large chunk of work exists for the bulk of consumer goods that could be reduced

when all of this is factored I think it could offset the inefficiency of moving away from specialization and allowing individuals to not operate like beaten down cogs

it comes down to a value judgement though, I value freedom more than I value a new car

'Tommy Robinson' banned from Facebook and Instagram

And in the brief time he had before his accounts disappeared, he posted an Insta video scrounging and begging for peoples money

I am thankful for my two further 'Tommy'-free channels, where I am not reminded of this ****ing cretinous scumbags existence.

Feb 26 - Every Extra Pint of Beer Takes 15 Minutes Off Your Life

Quote:
Strap in for this pintful of bad news.

The maximum number of drinks you can have a week to be a healthy person is five. Total. That's about 100g of alcohol, or five standard size glasses of wine or pints of beer. Drink more than that in a week, and you run a higher risk for heart failure, stroke, fatal aneurysm, or death.

This sobering guideline comes courtesy of a new paper studying the drinking habits and health of almost 600,000 people. It found that when 40-year-old participants had more than five drinks in a week, their risk of early death rose steadily.

Here's an even more exact breakdown, as a leading scientist in the field of understanding public risk, David Spiegelhalter of the University of Cambridge, told the Guardian: For a 40-year-old, every glass of alcohol above the suggested weekly limit shortens their life by 15 minutes. If a 40-year-old drinks three glasses of wine a night, for example, he loses two years of his life.

The risk is "about the same as a cigarette," Spiegelhalter said.

On the other hand, a recent study found that if you're over the age of 90, drinking two glasses of beer or wine a day gives you a better shot at living longer. Get yourself into your nineties on a healthy, five-beer-a-week diet, and then you can go crazy (relatively speaking).

Or, you can go to the bar this weekend, order what you want, and worry about this another day. Because what's the point of living a long life if you're not enjoying it?

That India/Pakistan sh*t is scary as hell. It's getting overshadowed by the Cohen testimony. Huge news day.

I'm more interested in what Cohen did with the millions he was paid from all his "consulting" clients (like AT&T and the Saudis) who wanted to know "Trump's mind" and then got absolutely nothing in return. All without telling his boss of course.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie pop? I guess we'll never know....

You're honestly more interested in that than our president potentially committing multiple crimes?
