It's not that electronics are making you stupid. It's just that reading, for me at least, is far more mentally stimulating. I feel more emotion from reading books than watching tv, because I can shape the stories more to my liking with my interpretation. But, to each their own, I guess.

It's far more mentally stimulating for YOU. The only reason it's viewed at intelligent to read books is because it used to be the only way to get information. Don't pretend you actually believe that last statement.

Dogs sense energy all the time. If you ever lived in a haunted house with a dog or seen a dog around someone who might have abused people and animals you will see a radical change in attitude even if nothing was obvious the dog would sense it. Same way they can tell if someone is about to die.

User avatar #108 - onewithpokerface (05/04/2014) [-]
Yeah, the dog one is BS, but allow me to correct it since dogs DO have an ability humans don't.

They have a special organ that allows them to pick up pheremones in other dogs urine. It's the reason they smell an area before marking it, they're able to discern a lot of information from it and can subsequently leave their own information.
#327 - drizztrocks (05/05/2014) [-]
Not to mention I think this ability for them to "sense" someone before we can comes from their ability to hear muscles moving, unlike us, which can't hear shit compared to a lot of animals.

I don't think he is.
Could also be the magnetic field, as others have pointed out.
User avatar #227 - wiredguy (05/04/2014) [-]
do you have any fucking idea what a magnetic field is?

I'm seriously asking you the question
#235 - alexanderh (05/04/2014) [-]
Nevermind, I tried searching "human magnetic field" on google, and this is the second scientific article: www.sciencemag.org/content/199/4324/81.short

Basically, the human brain does produce a magnetic field near the scalp.
User avatar #241 - wiredguy (05/04/2014) [-]

of course they do

every single difference you can make to charge distribution, has an effect on the entire field of the universe. there is no limit at which magnetic or electrical forces stop working, they just become exponentially weaker

it's still not strong enough for detection by anything other than specialised technological equipment at more than a few millimeters.
#332 - alexanderh (05/05/2014) [-]
Look, I was just saying that humans do indeed produce a magnetic field, and, potentially, it could be used to gauge emotions if you could sense it. I have no idea whether or not dogs can sense it, or if it's strong enough to be sensed by a living being. I will keep looking for sources, and if I find anything that proves your very definite opinion wrong, I will get back to you.
Otherwise, I am convinced that you are right, and dogs can not sense magnetic fields.
#333 - alexanderh (05/05/2014) [-]
And, I have proof that you are right: www.doghealth.com/how-and-why/how-dogs-sense-emotions

So, now I personally have an opinion based in fact, with sources to go along with it. This is how I originally suspected it to be (small variations in smell, tone of voice, and our posture), but I was curious and wanted to know.
User avatar #342 - wiredguy (05/05/2014) [-]
the only reason I didn't cite sources was because I honestly hoped no-one wouldn't need them

this is all very basic physics and psychology.

but whatever, props to you for going out and finding one.
#232 - alexanderh (05/04/2014) [-]
Yes. I'm not retarded.
Look, I'm not saying I know what it is or anything of the sort. But look at the replies posted by other people.
Since we use electrical pulses to move our limbs, it's not much of a stretch to believe that we generate a very weak magnetic field around us.
Personally, I don't know what I believe. I haven't read up on any sources, and I'm about to head to bed anyway. If you remind me, I'll try looking something up.
User avatar #237 - wiredguy (05/04/2014) [-]
>claiming to know what a magnetic field is
>instantly proving that you in fact, do not

a field is mathematical.
it does not exist, it's just a model.
when you talk about a field, you're describing a 3 dimensional plane of vectors, where every point has a value for direction and magnitude. those properties being tied into the forces a charged particle would experience at that point in space

so you mean to suggest
if I'm not wrong

that dogs brains, which have no extra organs than ours do
are able to pick up, through the motion of their own charge carriers, exactly what pattern of electrical motion is occurring in the CNS of someone many meters away?

even though the Earth's magnetic field is many thousands of times stronger, enough to move a compass indeed. and we can't feel shit from that.
#331 - alexanderh (05/05/2014) [-]
Okay, first off, I'm not claiming I know shit about what dogs can sense. I'm just saying it's a possibility. And yes, I do know what a magnetic field is.
And yes, some people CAN in fact feel the magnetic field of the earth. My grandfather is one of them. It takes some time, and a compass is much quicker and more reliable, but he can always find the north/south vectors.

And I wasn't saying, with any certainty, that dogs can feel it. I was just repeating the theory of some people here, and providing at least a shred of credibility to their claims.
Personally, I don't really believe these claims. But, at least I look for potential sources, instead of just dismissing it entirely.

Science: White reflects sunlight while black absorbs it. The energy in the light being absorbed manifests as added heat compared to a white equivalent which doesn't absorb that energy and thus stays cooler.

American troops rarely fight for their own countries these days. Instead they tend to unite with the UN's troops to solve national problems such as hostility between nations, terrorism, and end wrongful dictatorship. That doesn't necessarily mean America gets anything back. However, we do tend to get allies and occasional enemies from these confrontations. For example: There are currently U.S. Embassies in place to prevent North Korean V.S. South Korean conflict.

"Instead they tend to unite with the UN's troops to solve national problems such as hostility between nations, terrorism, and end wrongful dictatorship."

Examples of successful executions of these 'Objectives' please - even one link:
> hostility between nations
> terrorism
> end wrongful dictatorship

...Totally aside from the fact that I don't pay tax money to fund a military that polices the world.
Our military is supposed to directly defend our Nation.
This 'Defense Through Offense' stuff is just a smokescreen for resource wars.

We need to stop being a bunch of sensitive vaginas... mistaking legitimate criticism of our perverted Officials as an attack on Us / America / Our Principles etc.

Our Officials Are Evil. Our Troops are well-intentioned, but not coordinated enough to disobey their illegitimate orders.

That's a simple truth: say that, and do you part in clarifying this discussion... don't spew that other rubbish.
#513 - thefates (04/03/2014) [-]
Like I wouldn't be able to find a link that supported either side of the spectrum... Granted the story of America's leaders are evil and in it for resources sounds good, we haven't gotten anything from our involvement in either Iraq or Afghanistan. But hey, America is evil stories sure do sell so why don't we just make a ton of them. That stuff's garbage and I hate people like you who try to spread it.
I'm not even very patriotic but I can't stand this kind of idiocy. It's like you're trying to sound official about it by only knowing about a few wars. You're not looking at the bigger picture here. The U.S. army is working Day and Night all year round doing things all over the world to try and keep peace. A few political agendas in all of that mess is going to happen but it's not like they don't have other things they do damn well like any other army EVER.

"...America is evil stories sure do sell..."

> Define 'America', then we can talk: Is 'America' its Founding Principles? Its normal, working citizenry? Its Government?
> Our 'Officials' (who are now completely detached from the original intent of their Offices) ARE evil.
> Did i say that Free Market economics, Individual Liberty, The Founders, The Gilded Age, Apple Pie, Baseball and Yankee Doodle are 'Evil'? No. Just 'Our Officials'... and partially us as citizens for continuing to fund their destructive actions.

You are falling for a sophisticated, multi-generational Psy-Op, to install a division in the U.S. by making one group of people (people like you) think that ANY criticism of ANY U.S. citizen / agency is an attack on 'The U.S.' itself. Thus, we waste time arguing while 'they' keep getting away with their plans.

"...A few political agendas in all of that mess is going to happen..."

So you support the Military, huh cap'n?

You ever heard of USMC Major General Smedley Butler? Highly decorated, Highly respected. Career Military Man. Look him up, and his book 'War is a Racket'.

It's not "a few bad apples in a good barrel" - The Whole Barrel is rotten, with a few good apples still resisting the infection... and it's been this way for over half a century.

Centralization of Power and surrender of Individual Liberty and responsibility has ALWAYS ended ONE WAY throughout history..... ruin. It pains me greatly to say, but the U.S. is no exception.
#566 - thefates (04/04/2014) [-]
I don't think you understand that I don't support our military's actions. I just don't think that they're EVIL. Our officials are incapable of being completely EVIL. We VOTE for them in a free system. Are you claiming that Obama is an evil man simply because he is President and thus Commander in Chief of the armed forces? His job is literally just to protect the nation, it's not like he can obtain any power from making our country extremely successful and putting others down. There are rules in place to stop that kind of effort. Namely, the 4 year term, 2 terms, rule. It's un-bendable.
I have literally been unaffected by U.S. propaganda. I never felt a need to look into this sort of stuff until now and I tend to only look at world news and the like. There may be bad people in our armies but that's just how it works. Personally, I don't see why the world needs armies. I think we should all just shut up and make our one world government already.

Are you saying that the 4 year term, 2 terms, rule has ever been broken? Are you attempting to claim that the ENTIRE WORLD has chosen to lie about America? Are you trying to say that people who enjoy murder wouldn't join and army, where it's not just allowed but encouraged to kill the enemy?

Okay, here's the thing:

1. We obviously have many differences to reconcile.
2. My experience has taught me that A] People receive information MUCH better if you talk with them (especially in-person), and B] I think that if i do a BUNCH of research any type it all out to you, you will just ignore it like you did my other comments.
3. I have been staring at a computer screen ALL DAY for my boring-ass job.

So, the only other offer to discuss that I am willing to extend tonight is to Skype. I'll give you my Skype name, and we can talk for as long as you wish.

The US's wars aren't to gain any resources. Have you seen high supply in ANYTHING lately?

Their fights against different nations tend to be in order to keep our trade lanes open, and prevent nations from being taken over by people that will shut out the United States from those resources.

Sorry that the US is trying to ensure it's economic stability.

... And that's not why we funded(ing) Al-Qaeda to slaughter people in Syria (it was fun to watch that warmongering attempt fail in these past few months!)...
... And that's not why we're funding / supporting / coordinating 'opposition' in Ukraine.

FYI - the 'Taliban' were a Weapon indirectly forged by the U.S. back in the Afghan-Soviet War to stem the spread of the Soviets. We got a bunch of Thugs and Assholes on our payrolls, and then dropped them like a hot potato as soon as out ADHD military moved on to our next target, leaving these thugs in control of the country. U.S. officials are in part to blame for the mess in Afghanistan in the first place.

But this is all of the stuff I've been force fed by the media.

And we're leaving after about a decade, which is clearly what you do if you want to hold on to new resources. You "we did it for resources" people are beyond stupid: War is costly. We've spent more than we could ever hope to gain from either Iraq or Afghanistan.

Really what we wanted was a friendly, stable muslim country.

Okay, fine.

I post links, a coherent argument... and you reply with that nonsensical crap recycled right off the Mainstream News.

That kind of thinking.... that kind of Simpleton Bullshit... the kind that you just displayed in that reply... is the exact reason this world sucks when it does.
#575 - durkadurka (04/05/2014) [-]
>Coherent argument

Please. You're simply making nonexistent connections while ignoring information when convenient. The whole "war for profit" theory kinda falls apart when met with the twin realities of "the war was fucking expensive" and "we got nothing out of it".

Throwing insults and dismissing opposing points as "nonsensical crap" is not what makes a coherent argument. It just makes you a massive asshole.

NOTHING I've said is anything that's reported by the mainstream media: It's nothing to fucking report. It's simply a conclusion drawn from looking at the past ten years seeing that "hey, we didn't exactly come out ahead on this one now did we?"

And that "Simpleton Bullshit" is called Occam's razor you fucking dickbag. elaborate conspiracies and fantastical motivations are the stuff of movies. Welcome to fucking reality. Forget whatever perverse need you have to fill your world with tales of elaborate cover-ups and deception. It just doesn't fucking happen.

The kind of bullshit you displayed is the exact reason other morons go on believing their nutty conspiracy theories of aliens, thermite, and grassy knoll shooters. And THAT'S what truly makes the world suck.

If we're gonna keep talking, It'll have to be through Skype... I have been typing all day and I'm tired of it.

Otherwise, I'm done with this shit-posting thread.

That's because, basically, you done fucked up and thought the wars would cost a lot less than they did because your politicians and military didn't think "Hey, these people who have defended their borders from hostility for hundreds of years might be kinda tough to beat."

That's why Saudi Arabia is rolling in money from the oil America wanted to get and why America is flopping like a stabbed manatee.
User avatar #415 - durkadurka (04/03/2014) [-]
Wars are NEVER cheap. Never have been, never will be. We've fought plenty; there's no way we didn't expect the same costs. There's plenty of oil here in the US, and at the time we hadn't tapped as much of it. It was MUCH cheaper at the time too. It literally makes no goddamn sense why we'd spend trillions of dollars to get something we have at home.

Also, we didn't invade Saudi Arabia you fucking retard. That and oil production is shooting up thanks to new means and methods of drilling.

Hence why they aren't doing much to help:

Somali Civil War
Islamic war in Nigeria
Central African Republic conflict
South Sudanese conflict

There's nothing to gain from these as they lack any resources and they can't sell them weapons as they're mostly using AK's
#472 - xxxsonic fanxxx (04/03/2014) [-]
I know you aren't here to be anything but a jackass, but here's the rub: The US has been involved in Nigeria and Somalia. In Somalia, we act with Ethiopia and Kenya in their combat against the al-Shabbab militias, while giving material support to the African Union and the two autonomous enclaves (Somaliland and Puntland). In Nigeria, US troops are heavily involved in the training of anti-insurgency and anti-terror incidents. Why we aren't in those countries more? Two wars are costly enough, four full scale conflicts would really pound on the war weariness you know?

As for the CAR? France has that under control and since the CAR is in their sphere of influence, we're happy enough to allow them. The United States not being involved in South Sudan is not true, as we're heavily involved in the hunt against the Lord's REsistance Army, although thats periphial to the conflict.

all three thousand people in and surrounding the twin towers, their familys, and their friends, all had beef with the selfish bastards in the cockpit of those planes. sometimes a fight is the only solution to a problem that can't be reasoned with. the children of war would have grown up and most likely taken their parents infectious views, so why not kill them too? if my government wanted to go to war with the middle east for religious reasons and kill every muslim in my country, I'd enlist tomorrow.

Sadly the chance of that happening to him is kinda low right now. Maybe earlier in the war, but at this point it seems like there are too few deaths for an idiot like him to die if he enlists.

Well NATO hasn't really evolved from the league of nations anyway.
Sanctions don't get shit done, unless they are proper sanctions, you know the kind of sanctions that freeze assets for a whole country, not just US assets of a few russian dignitaries.
Banning travel for diplomats won't work, banning travel and trade from Russia will work.
Why don't they do that? Because a lot of the EU's gas and oil comes from the east.
They either impose heavy sanctions, or they let Russia do its shit.
And the way their going about it right now, Russia will not stop.
That's good, it's time for a shakeup anyway.

Umm, nerd moment, and sorry for the spoiler, but Eragon was, in actuality, Brom's son (the old human dragon rider who helped him). He was the son of Selena (Morzan's wife) and is half-brother of Murtagh.

hehehe yeah you're right, but i totally expected a "I am your father!" scene and the whole brom, murtagh, selena thingo was super suss.
#198 - UnoSkullmanx (03/19/2014) [-]
yeah, that whole sub plot never really panned out IMO

but comparing Eragon to Star wars kind of does the whole book series an injustice; they're really not that similar (besides it turned out that Eregon's father was actually Brom the whole time and him being the son of murtagh was a bunch of bullshit), but hey you can think what you want
