I don't understand how that's conducive to militancy. Do they want other people to forgo breeding as well?

My country has a growing birth rate and thus the population burden corresponding to economic problems, and these radicals thought that by stopping procreation it could address those problems at the cost of possible national and cultural extinction. As soon as I got downvoted, I knew that reasoning any further with these radicals was a futile exercise.

Radical anything is dumb because once you reach radicalism, you're throwing logic and reason to the wayside in favor of an ideology.

"Radical" just means "far outside the norm". Most ideas that are considered normal now were radical at one time. Democracy was once a fringe, radical ideology.

Well, if you're thinking with the logic the majority uses as a basis, that is certainly true.

Radicalism good? There's a big difference between a radical idea and a radical ideology.

What we think of radicalism right now is a future man's norm.

Most radicalism doesn't make it to the future; and we won't know which until we look back to it in the past.

I have just depressed myself for fairly stupid reason and would like someone to vent to off-line (because at current I have no Skype buddies online at the moment). Any volunteers willing to tolerate a PM session?

EDIT: Got a volunteer, so disregard this message (Thanks, robersora).

I've been running into some trouble with my Debian installation. I upgraded to Jessie and I can't get GNOME to start. It goes through it's standard wall of text and when it would normally start up X and present me with the GNOME login prompt, I just get a completely black screen (no textual prompt).

I can't drop to a TTY by using Ctrl-Alt-Fkey, nor is there a cursor.

After a bit of digging, I have discovered that the proprietary ATI drivers that I was using are incompatible with kernel versions > 3.13, and I was running 3.16.

I tried booting into a known good kernel version (3.2, thank you GRUB) and still no dice. Same problem.

The really strange part is that X is not spitting out any errors. /var/log/Xorg.0.log isn't reporting anything out of the ordinary.

I think X is working correctly, but the GPU is throwing a bitchfit.

Not really an FML, but couldn't think of a better place to post this. Have an appointment with the orthopedic tomorrow, hopefully it'll be good news because doing everything with my left hand is a gigantic pain in the ass.

I'm sick! :zer_sweatdrop: Throat sore, could barely get out of bed, need to take Advil to be able to stand to eat.

But I have to keep up with school or it'll moidalize me, so here I am sitting watching this week's lecture for my second class. There's no way I'll survive otherwise, because one of the classes is another class like the Angry Birds one where I have to make a complete game by the end of the quarter (this time Space Invaders).

Almost 48 hours without an FML from anyone? Wow!

In the meantime, things have gotten worse for me. In addition to the illness itself taking an even heavier toll (oh god when do I get to take another Advil aw fuck I just took one), the other night on my woozy way up to bed I stumbled over a mini-trampoline in our child-wrecked basement (my nephews are ages 4 and 7 and visit about once a week) and had a fall that I didn't think would be too bad as it was happening but now my right ring toe (all damage was to right leg) has the nastiest bruise I've ever seen on my body, some of my skin turned black. Also my knee kinda hurts.

It doesn't bother me around the house but I think with shoes on it's a problem, I was limping in the store yesterday (even sick people need to keep up their food stocks).

Excessive blood buildup under the skin is stupidly painful. Sorry to hear that you're not doing well, Monk. Hope you get better soon-- drink plenty of chicken soup!
