    Money does have intrinsic value.

    It represents labor you've performed to the benefit of someone else in society.

    My understanding is that we aren't creating money right now (although we have...

    In spirit I don't disagree, but I don't think the US is in a position to double the budget.

    I appreciate that Yang costed it out instead of just promising it. He was willing to have an honest...

    I would have voted Yang out of all the democrats even though I think his UBI plan was totally unworkable.

    Seemed smart, reasonable, and didn't demonize people that didn't disagree with him. Also...

    I'd vote for Chapelle in a heart beat over the current options (provided I could vote here). Let's put Jocko Willink as VP on our fantasy ticket instead of another comedian (if you want to stick with...

    I appreciate that Flippy tries to Steelman positions that he doesn't necessarily agree with.

    I think this is a hallmark of intellectual honesty and is sorely lacking in society (especially from...

    +1

    It would be great to have some great leadership.

    I wish there was the potential of that happening.

    Felt, I don't want to spend too much time arguing here because I think we're ultimately on the same side here (masks offer at least some protection when you have to be close to people).

    But...

    I think that masks help if you are inside or in large crowds. But I get why people might be skeptical of scientists (not science) on this issue.

    I think part of this was that the lead scientists...

    My understanding of studying "happiness" is limited, I think helping others and consistently writing out 3 things we're grateful for are two things that are often cited as improving happiness.

    Happiness is a weird metric because it's not possible to quantify and everyone basically has a different definition.

    But at the same time, it's clearly important.

    They seem to be making a low risk high reward move here. Looks like a good call.

    And I don't get why their punishments don't escalate for continually breaking the same set of rules.

    I think the US system is basically an accident that came out of a government trying to cap wages.

    I grew up in Canada and left when I was mid 30s.

    I agree that Canada has good care if you live in a big city. But access kind of sucks for people outside the big three cities. And care is rationed...

    I wouldn't say it's not the commercials, but I agree that having kids makes it really hard to take 3 - 4 hours to watch a game.

    This.

    On D, I think that Alualu and big Dan will depend on the opposition. Maybe Dan plays more against run oriented AFCN teams, and Alualu more against more pass happy teams?

    Who knows if he's telling the truth.

    Save some foil for me Flippy. I've got some camping experience too.

    I was already gone when that got announced. I know people that were really psyched about it, but I would have been terrified.
