Who are the recognized institutions that you are making an appeal of authority to? 

An appeal to authority is only a logical fallacy when the one to whom the appeal is being made isn’t an authority in the topic they are being appealed to about.

Appealing to the authority on the topic for which they are the authority is intelligent. Anyone claiming otherwise isn’t the swiftest gazelle in the herd.

Posted in: Ukraine hopes to sign security pact with Japan before July NATO summit See in context

I wonder why most western nations didn't try resolve issues before Russia's invasion

They did - and Putin invaded anyways.

This is 100% on Russia. That’s why the world is quarantining them like a virus.

Russia did not start this.

Russia unilaterally started this, and can end it by going home tomorrow.

Sorry, were we supposed to pretend your Russian propaganda had any basis in reality? My bad.

AI is very dangerous and is being used by malicious people guided by dark forces to commit wrong doings.

AI is also very powerful, and used by many intelligent people to make their workflows easier.

Like the internet, it's a tool.

Ukraine is as helpless as a child,one who throws temper tantrums

Because defending your country from an invader who is executing your friends, families, and neighbors in the streets is a "temper tantrum", right?

I certainly have. The "medical consensus" regarding dietary recommendations have consistently been wrong, from recommending seed oils, margarine, and carbs to demonizing meat, butter, and other saturated fats.

As more information has become available, strategies have been refined. Anyone claiming they have "been wrong" and therefore you should ignore them is well, scraping the bottom of the barrel of intelligence.

There are also leaked communications that show how the sugar industry funded studies to wrongfully blame saturated fat rather than carbs for various health problems.

Life expectancy at birth for Inuit of the former Northwest Territories rose from 29 years in 1941 to 1950 (38 years less than for Canada overall), to 37 years in 1951 to 1960 (33 years less), to 51 years in 1963 to 1966 (21 years less), and to 66 years in 1978 to 1982 (19 years less).4 For Inuit in Nunavik, life expectancy in 1984 to 1988 was 14 years less than for the total population of Quebec.

There is rampant alcoholism, drug addiction, and poverty in the Inuit populations, which is a significant reason for the low life expectancy. I don't think they are a good control group for this discussion.

Probably best not to get involved. Let the US deal with it. It's basically their beef.

Yeah, because Putin wouldn't invade countries to try to steal more territory, in an attempt to push Russian borders towards NATO to provoke a war, right?

 

...right?

So helpless that it has sent back half a million Russians in either body bags or ambulances, and devastated Russia's Black Fleet?

I guess the Ukrainians will have to send back another half a million body bags, and sink the rest of the Russian fleet.

I'm ok with that. Or the Russians can go for peace, and just go home.

LLM AI is always going to be susceptible to dullard human conspiracies. Until it takes us out I guess.

LLM are no-intelligence, so it's not surprising they get sucked into the same conspiracies as those that suck in the low-intelligence people.

Lets add just a bit of honesty to this story.!. Japan does NOT include the prices of fuel and food in their GDP / CPI

Really? This is the first I've heard this, and while it's not implausible, this is the internet... got a link?

So only those convicted in court? More that half of sexual assault arrests DO NOT go to court. They are settled between the victim and the offender in a deal brokered by a lawyer with the prosecutors blessing.

Do you think people should be barred from a job based on accusations?

Yet another performer who doesn’t know what genocide is. Or is he just pandering to an audience?

Or maybe he is of the opinion that it's genocide, and wants to have his voice. As an anonymous poster, having your voice online, is that so strange?

Well done Ukraine!

Take out all their ships. Leave them isolated from the sea.

Russia must be quarantined from humanity, and ensuring they have no war ships is another step towards that. Well done!

Only a little over a billion dollars in loss per year.

Seems like a very Trumpian business plan.

Posted in: Online reservations begin for Mount Fuji climbers to ease congestion See in context

I can see the reasoning, but how do they want to enforce that? Build a wall around Mt Fuji?

Why would they do that - people use three trails to get up the mountain. They just need to set up at the trail heads. Can someone get around it? Sure, but is it worth the extra money it costs to make sure not a single person gets through without paying? I don't think you'll find anyone thinking it is.

Most people, Japanese and foreign, will just pay, because most people aren't thieves who will try to sneak around and get out of paying a not large amount of money for a pretty amazing experience.

Posted in: Michael Cohen says he stole from Trump's company as defense presses key hush money trial witness See in context

His explanation for his felony theft was poor. he “deserved” more bonus so he was justified to steal it, he said.

You guys should prosecute him for that.

Maybe it will make trump feel better in jail.

You did steal from the Trump Organization?" Mr Trump's lead lawyer, asked Cohen on Monday.

"Yes, sir," Cohen replied without hesitation.

And what did you think about his follow up comments when the prosecution asked him to elaborate during their final questioning?

Gawd, even Yahoo news…lol

Did they also tell you the sky is blue?

Because neither of those things make trump a non criminal.

The prosecution built a hell of a case that didn’t rely on Cohen. The jury will decide.

We already knew he was a crook.

Yes we did.

He is guilty of the crime Trump is currently also standing trial for.

Cohen being a criminal does not make Trump a not criminal.
