Mr. Larkin is scared of STDs though he\'s brought this up on a number of
occasions.

Meanwhile millions of conservative Evangelical blowhards have been
putting the fear of God into young adult about STDs for decades, and now
the same ones are all running around no vaccines no masks.

But definitely be scared of sex outside of marriage you\'re gonna die
from an STD that the average young adult who has sex outside of marriage
has about a ten thousand times less chance of dying from than Covid.

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.

Guess I can see why they\'re so pissed off if it seems like someone is

In large part afraid of right-wing engineers whose preferred system of
governance is some old white guy like themselves being supreme dictator
of America, and utilizing their absolute God-emperor power to order the
deaths of millions of conservative-defined genetic sub-humans unworthy
of life.

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.

Convention says building death camps is bad but conservatives who
regularly ignore convention tend to be unpredictable.

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.

As I understand it we owe Fairchild Semiconductor to that \"type\" of
engineer, his name was William Shockley and half his team eventually
left to found FS cuz they couldn\'t stand the blowhard.

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.

been happy to push the problems on to the future generations. You and
your like have been happy in the knowledge that you\'ll be dead before

people who starting to realise that /they/ are the ones that have to do
something about it, and /they/ are the ones who will be suffering the
consequences of their parents\' and grandparents\' greed. And they are
right to be afraid.

That, however, has nothing at all to do with being conservative or
socialist, or right-wing or left-wing. It has to do with education,
understanding, empathy, science, and paying attention to the world
around you.

Not so. Some people are afraid of most everything. I know people who
jump and gasp when another car crosses our path. I know people who are
terrified of this latest virus. I\'ve known EEs who wouldn\'t touch a
PCB when they know the supply rail is 5 volts; that makes probing
difficult. Some people rarely if ever feel fear.

We had some fun recently with home covid tests. They required a tiny
finger prick to get a drop of blood. One macho guy, a rock climber
among other things, broke into a sweat and untimately couldn\'t do it.
I offered to zap him and he refused that too.

I think propensity to fear is mostly inborn. Some kids have it, some
don\'t.

bird was in the lead and it sure didn\'t look like it. Just when the

At 2 mm per year, we\'ll probably have another ice age before we drown.
Being a mile deep in ice *would* be a lot worse than ankle-deep in

The big sea level problem in coastal cities is manmade subsidence from
pumping out groundwater. Bad for real estate values for the beach

Mr. Larkin is scared of STDs though he\'s brought this up on a number of

Not scared, just rationally prudent about a common hazard. Besides, I
don\'t like wake up with random strangers who might make bad coffee.

I do appreciate that having accidents and diseases and lawsuits are a
boring nuisance. If I am afraid of anything, it\'s boredom.

But group dynamics interests me, and I\'m not a group.

Old hens tend to group. They cluck and my-o-my together.

Meanwhile millions of conservative Evangelical blowhards have been

But definitely be scared of sex outside of marriage you\'re gonna die

STDs are rarely lethal any more. But they can be dangerous to a
partner. You might have fun and leave her infertile. The more people
you sleep with, the bigger germ pool you play in.

Things like herpes can be a nuisance too.

Anarchists Unite!

The only common goal of libertarians is to be left alone.

The problem with coercive group action, passing laws to tax and
control everything, is that very few people understand how societies
and economies really work. Control usually degrades to group power and
self-interest and gross inefficiency.

It\'s better in those situations to allow a zillion random experiments
and allow the successful ones to grow. That\'s the way most things have
been invented.

Actually, it\'s being unrealistic and ignorant. Ignoring a real problem isn\'t being optimistic or brave - it\'s just stupid.

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

The kids are correctly afraid of the consequences of run-away global warming. John Larkin seems to think that an energy intensive life-style depends of burning fossil carbon to get that energy. Since China went into high-volume production of cheap, high-yield solar cells, Australia\'s electricity generating firms have given up building new fossil-carbon-powered power-station - solar farms produce electricity more cheaply, even if you figure in the cost of the grid storage required to keep the lights on over-night. Tesla sold their first grid-scale batter to South Australia in 2020 and it was a stunning success.

https://reneweconomy.com.au/tesla-big-battery-in-south-australia-delivers-stunning-windfall-profits-77644/

> Some people don\'t want to bring children into a doomed world.

The world isn\'t doomed. We can cut down our carbon dioxide emissions without abandoning our energy intensive habits, but it is going to take work, and the fossil carbon extraction industry isn\'t happy about it and is spending a lot of money on unconvincing propaganda aimed at gullible twits like John Larkin.

> Excellent; we\'ll have some beneficial selective breeding.

Probably not.

A better one is don\'t be ignorant, but John Larkin isn\'t going to take that seriously. He claims that he can\'t be scared, which he thinks would give him an advantage as a engineer, but he is regrettably ignorant, to such an extent that he doesn\'t realise quite how ignorant he is.

If only John Doe were imaginary. Sadly, he\'s real enough to post his nonsense here all too often.
