I've been to a ton of plants all over the usa in the last 6 months. I haven't seen any where human labor was used for actual production. 

Here's a sweet robot pic I took: 

It's probably different in asia and south america, but in the usa, manufacturing hasn't declined @ all, it's just manufacturing by humans has declined.

That's a good way to check if you're a caricature, if your worldview is also full of caricatures - If when you think of 'factory' you think of an industrial revolution era factory & some kid getting his fingers chopped off by a drill press or something. 

Things happened since then, like a 100 years worth of things. Ur arguments may still be valid, but they'd valid for nu reasons. 

Don't fight a war 2 bring weekends & hardhats 2 the working man, that war has been won, fight a war 2 give him benefits & education compensation & advancement and sh*t.

Just because you don't see a relation with your eyes doesn't mean the relation isn't there.  See that guy looking at that machine back there.  Thats labor thats going towards actual production.  He probably pushed a button or two even.  Labor.  Going towards actual production.

Actually, that guy was just there to goof off and look at PLC sh*t, dumbass. 

Just cause you don't see invisible beings floating in the sky, doesn't mean the SILFs aren't real.

What a sh*t argument is that? "If [X] is a useful idea for supporting my worldview, doesn't mean it's not real".

Get over it. Labor intensive manufacturing is done, gone, and forgotten except for in non-civilized or emerging economies.

Also, controls operation doesn't imply 'labor'. Just like putting sh*t into excel isn't labor. It might be if you're a pedant, but it is not in the context of this discussion.

You have so many aspergers.

Putting shit into excel if it is compensated by an employer is labor.  IIf I put shit into excel for no compensation from an employer and not towards my own personal business activities then it is not work. It's not a worldview.  Labor is work.  I know as a dumb anti-intellectual redneck your tendency will be to view work or labor as only manual or physical labor.

My tendency to refer to human labor as physically intensive work in a discussion about factories has nothing to do with anti-intellectualism. It is the opposite. Putting sh*t into excel is work, pouring coal into a furnace is labor. 

I nailed it, you are a pedant. No wonder you will never get laid.

Proximate Flaws wasn't even talking about manual or physical labor in the first place.  But a dumbshit would think underlaborer means manual laborer in discussion on technostructure =)


So much for getting the context clues right.

Last night I went to a club and tried to mack on some girls but everyone gave me the cold shoulder. It was pretty demoralizing. Also I felt really old because all the girls looked normal but all the males were children. I mean, they were obviously the same age but they didn't look the same age.

I watched a few episodes of The Wire. The story isn't bad but the dialogue is so fake and cheesy with everyone giving these long speeches and over-acting with way too much emotion and intensity. It feels like local theater. Or kids auditioning for local theater. 

I'll probably keep watching it, though. What the hell else am I going to do, work? 


Nov 17, 2012 8:22pm

I watch cartoons when I'm bored and tired of reading. I watch a lot of cartoons.

I recently watched every episode of Adventure Time. that's what got me started on catching up on old TV shows


Nov 17, 2012 8:57pm

Ahhh, love that show. Too lazy to find it oti.

I don't know who that is, or what he was talking about. He was not a part of this discussion. You have discussion aspergers, obviously. Bad case of it too. 

How about you apologize for being an indignant little sh*t and learn some facts. You are a sphincter.

Q: What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and gains a third leg in the evening?
