FMRI is about as useful as reading tea leaves, without getting a cup
of tea.

In my direct experience, lefties are a lot more neurotic and afraid
and unhappy with the world-as-it-is than libertarian types. That makes
sense.

Engineers need guts. We need to take risks, explore possibilities,
risk ridicule, ignore conventions and rules and peer pressures, misuse
parts, and test things to destruction, preferably with sparks and
smoke and loud noises.

Oh, yeah, folk who congratulate themselves a lot, are sure happy about it.
Grinning idiots are happier yet, one supposes.

Not that John Larkin understand engineering well enough to have a useful opinion on the subject.

In John Larkin\'s exert opinion. The professionals aren\'t that much more cheerful - it\'s takes a big and expensive machine, and the researchers with the political clout to get time on such a machine don\'t tend to spend enough time of thinking about what they are doing with it, but the psychologists who do it are learning a bit about what happens where in the brain (and when). It\'s finer-grained than waiting for somebody to have a stroke and seeing how their thinking falls to pieces on consequence, but not all that fine-grained.

In my direct experience, lefties are a lot more neurotic and afraid
and unhappy with the world-as-it-is than libertarian types. That makes
sense.

Sure, Libertarian types are perfectly happy with the world exactly the way it is, and don\'t spend any time thinking about how it might be changed to work better.
Dumb as a rock and happy as a clam.

Engineers need guts. We need to take risks, explore possibilities,
risk ridicule, ignore conventions and rules and peer pressures, misuse
parts, and test things to destruction, preferably with sparks and
smoke and loud noises.

So do social engineers. The less risk-averse amongst them go in for revolutions, which do tend to test society to destruction, and generate lots of smoke and loud noises.

John Larkin lacks the wit to see society as a mechanism which can be tinkered with. The US Founding Fathers were more willing to think about changing it, but their successors were slow to embrace changes like universal education (when it became economically practical), still haven\'t embraced universal health care and still can\'t see the point of proportional representation, though most of Europe embraced it about a hundred years ago.

Phil seems to think that I\'m a left-wing engineer, and I wrote very little code once I\'d completed my Ph.D.

He\'s probably going to claim that I\'m not an engineer, but

Sloman, A.W. and Swords, M.D. \"A fast and economical gated discriminator\", Journal of Physics E: Scientific Instruments, 11, 521-524 (1978).

Ghiggino, K.P., Phillips, D., and Sloman, A.W. \"Nanosecond pulse stretcher\",Journal of Physics E: Scientific Instruments, 12, 686-687 (1979).

Sloman A.W., Buggs P., Molloy J., and Stewart D. “A microcontroller-based driver to stabilise the temperature of an optical stage to 1mK in the range 4C to 38C, using a Peltier heat pump and a thermistor sensor” Measurement Science and Technology, 7 1653-64 (1996)

all report hardware designed from scratch. He\'ll find some way to be rude about it, but that\'s just Phil.

Finding one willing to flatter John Larkin must be difficult. Finding one willing to flatter John Larkin\'s hardware design skills would be even more difficult.

John Larkin can clearly evolve useful hardware designs by small incremental (and largely random) changes, but design seems to be beyond him. It is a useful skill, but I\'ve had to clean up after people who worked that way and the products were never pretty.

Wrong on all counts, but that\'s our Phil. His own psychopathic defects lead him to snip the evidence I presented that might have suggested to a more objective observer that I did have some engineering skills, but they\'d probably have to know more than Phil does to get that impression. And he didn\'t bother to mark the snip.

This could be seen as immoral, but it\'s more likely to just reflect poor impulse control - he posted his reaction to what he\'d managed to read and ignored the rest.

That\'s absurd. Discounting climate change, being optimistic about the
future, is the opposite of being scared.

Kids today are literally afraid of the world being destroyed by
climate change. \"How dare you!\" build what we have.

Some people don\'t want to bring children into a doomed world.
Excellent; we\'ll have some beneficial selective breeding.

Good engineering rule of thumb: don\'t be scared.
