Zero Edge How to become rich - Step 1: Become a politician.
🦾 Lucian Marin Act like a politician, don't become one. It's all political.
☕ David Antoine Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse, when the moon entirely blocks the sun's apparent disk. You have to be careful not to look at the sun in any other circumstances. During a total solar eclipse maximum phase, you can even look at it with binoculars, it's incredible. But you have to be aware of the time and stop staring at it when the end of the total phase approaches. A "thin outline of a circle" burn would probably occur if you have the bad idea of looking at an annular eclipse during the max phase, with binoculars and no protection. Having eye burn damage suck. Zero uplift.
Zero Edge I've seen the total solar eclipse but had not thought of using a pair of binoculars. I might try that out if I can make it to the one we should be experiencing soon. I suppose you're right that the sun would be too blocked out to experience any burn of the retina during the total eclipse.

Zero Edge If you stared straight at a total eclipse with no protection you might burn the retina of your eyes. The burn would not be the same kind of burn you would receive from staring straight at the sun (which would be a filled circle) but instead would be a thin outline of a circle. I wonder if a person with this type of burn would have differing psychological traits than others. I wonder if they would be able to visually focus on things better than others considering they have a boundary circle permanently within their vision. I wonder if it changed the culture of peoples of ancient times if they happened stare at a total eclipse...
🦾 Lucian Marin I stared multiple times at the sun. I don't think the burn is permanent.

Zero Edge The elites want you to be stupid. To not understand how anything works so they can easily point a finger and say "they are the source of your problems". Economics hardly being taught is not an accident. The price of everything is dictated by supply and demand. That includes how much you are paid, the price of gas, the price of goods, how much you pay in rent, etc.. Import thousands of people into an area and guess what happens? Your rent goes up and your wages go down. More demand for housing and less demand for workers. Tired of the brain dead idiots who are absent in logic but overflowing with empathy. Grow up.
Zero Edge I've never liked the whole "monkeys on a typewriter" thing because technically it isn't true. An infinite amount of monkeys given an infinite amount of time would never write Shakespeare because no matter what, a monkey cannot type in perfect randomness, meaning no matter how many or how long it would never type Shakespeare. If you made a device and trained a monkey to type perfectly random.. yeah, sure.

Zero Edge I have never met a manipulator that wasn't friendly or nice. Ever. They are always so nice, have the most heartfelt and emotional stories, and so personable. I trust jerks way more. They aren't trying to get you to like them. They aren't trying to butter you up or tell you what you want to hear. They are real. Fake people are the worst. Your existence is to serve them and their will. They don't care about you, they are about taking as much from you as they can. Manipulators and liars are cut from the same cloth. Distance yourself from their mind games. Reminds me of Proverbs 26:28.

Zero Edge It's always seemed so backwards that you can own stock in a company and then vote in congress on a bill that can either cause the stock you own to go up or down. Vote for my bank account to go up or vote for my bank account to go down? "Oh but I only invest in companies I believe in". You like me and everyone else ignores the bad and holds onto the good.. your investments are anti American and don't serve the American people. Your position is of trust not of wealth. If you want wealth find another job. You are are a public SERVANT.

Zero Edge Diaperman vs Superman. Very tough decision...
🦾 Lucian Marin I think Luke 3:8 is the most important part of the . People who are religious aren't better than people who are not. Good people are only does who are doing good things or the God's way.
Zero Edge The Bible is pretty clear: repent, follow Christ, and walk away from a sinful life. Better to drink from the fountain of life than the fountain of death. Living in Christ bears fruit. Doesn't mean its easy..

Zero Edge Local gas markets are weird. In any other market if there is a huge gap in price it get arbitraged till its gone. I am regularly seeing 20%+ price differences just a few miles apart.
