They are still maximizing happiness based on their perceptions. You could think about that several ways. If it's necessary for them to live, it's not difficult to see that as a happiness maximizing decision. Beyond an actually physical threat, even if they simply don't think they will survive w...

re: Which movie would you rather see get a sequel? Ender's Game or John Carter? - funnystuff
No sequel for either of these movies. That said, I would like to see a TV spinoff of ender's game that focuses entirely on battle school. It would necessarily have an entirely different feel than the movie. But I would enjoy this type of spinoff with maybe a Friday Night Lights type of mentalit...

re: Peter Schiff Destroys Thomas Piketty - funnystuff
"if it works" can only be defined relative to other alternatives. Mercantilism "worked" for hundreds of years because it was the best method conceived; no one could imagine anything better. It wasn't until a better alternative was proposed that people realized this method to be sub-optimal. The...

re: European Obesity... take a guess - funnystuff
How are we defining fat? Is it simply weight in pounds/kilograms? Or do they use a BMI measure? If it's based simply on raw weight, I'm guessing the Scandinavian countries would rank highest (do to them being taller on average). If they are using some sort of body mass index, UK is probably my...

The difference is, the moments that you aren't proud of don't threaten the financial standing of 29 billionaires. Criticize the media all you want, but they are simply a reaction to the citizenry. By and large, the media's only goal is to make money, and they do so by covering "stories" which ga...
