Honestly it's amazing how exhausting it can be to explore and look around a huge convention center. Especially when you've been sitting around for a year and a half and only recently started exercising, and also lug around several books and big boxes.

Still, for as tiring as it is, it's still a nice glow after checking out everything and achieving a few goals, now to recover until the next one.

So let's get together with a nice cup of whatever makes us happy, coffee in my case, and talk about anything and everything

Do you look back at what you learned in High School (or whatever you did that was equivalent to being in High School) as well as college (or whatever you did that was equivalent to being in college) and wonder how much knoweldge you use practically, day to day?

What do you wish that you'd learned?

What has getting older taught you recently, like in the past week or so?

Looking back at High School, I think the one thing I retained most and still find most useful in navigating the world was a series of lessons an English teacher gave the class on recognizing common propoganda techniques in things like political speeches and advertising. One of a number of teachers who taught us the primary reason you learn all this general knowledge stuff isn't just for career development or daily skills, but mostly so someone can't pull a fast one on you. I.e. you (ostensibly) learn general knowledge so that you can be a more effective participant in the free market and not accidentally reward fraud and con artist.

Too bad then that, especially in my homestate, politics was so corrupt that there was nothing taught anywhere about financial literacy and history courses were tailored in such a way as to not undermine the power of nationalistic rhetoric and propoganda.

I took a bunch of philosophy and psychology courses when I was getting my first undergraduate degree and I feel like thise courses ultimately helped me become more mindful and humble and logical.

In terms of skills though? I don't really use much of anything skill specific on a daily basis, I was never able to make a career out of my second undergraduate degree in CS. I still value it though, I'm not the type to see the value of education being solely in what job skills it confers, I'm not that much a slave to capitalist narratives about true happiness being found primarily in productivity.

Yeah, this is unfortunately one of the design choices of G5 that I'm not wild about. The lips.
I get from an animation standpoint it looks weird if your 3D animated character talks without using lips cuz like... that's how we talk. But I dunno, it just looks kinda weird to me whenever they get super pronounced.
I did get used to it fairly quickly though.

Professionally, I always have to cynically chuckle when people talk about super advanced AI.

I work day in and day out with software that's broken, development who can't program proper key features right and with the knowledge that I can just cause a big issue in the deployed structure by pushing the right buttons. Mostly because of the general IT stuff of development being on a tight budget/deadline so there's never time/money to actually fix and improve a mess of a software architecture. So you just steadily ducktape over all the holes in the software code and pray noone notices and create this messy thing that you keep clients on the line over to apply workarounds to handle the constant incidents of unforeseen issues.

And then geeks on the internet speculate over super advanced AI bypassing their human masters as it is working too well.

In the key that our souls were singing

There are the short term consequences that will probably have a considerable effect on liquidity in the Chinese retail loans market. In the longer term it may result in an inflationary pressure on the yuan, but then I haven't cared about this shit in years so I'm just pulling speculation out my ass.

The inherent risk associated in dealing with both a developing sector and with trading in financial services in an autocratic state means that risk of contagion to foreign investors is low. Nobody in New York or London was using Evergrande as a safe haven asset. You saw the market very briefly shit itself as investors shuffled their assets around in light of new information, but I don't think you'll see much more than that in the West. Granted if the entire Chinese economy implodes then that would be different, but I think in general the Communists can handle a little banking crisis, even if they come out of it with a bloody nose. The possibility has been a concern within the system for a while now and there is plenty of information available on how national banks have responded to similar crises in the modern era.

This isn't really like the Subprime Mortgage Crisis. The catalyst there was high risk instruments being miss-marketed as being low risk and bundling strategies that resulted in extraordinarily high rates of contagion.


Anyways. I didn't like the options given because it isn't a "nothingburger", but it isn't impactful on the lives of the people reading about this on an English Language My Little Pony fansite. It could easily have a drastic impact on the lives and prosperity of an enormous number of people, but very few of us will ever learn if it does or doesn't fuck things over because outside of a couple click-baits and frenetic bankers with nasty flashbacks it's so far away. In general it pisses me off when people intentionally ask badly structured questions.

I heard that many in China considered Evergrande bonds to be low-risk because it had been assumed that Evergrande would be bailed out by the government, which apparently isn't happening anymore.

Hmm, I would have thought that my third OP option ("something in between") would capture that?  Although I guess of the three options, only the last option really makes sense, so I guess I worded the OP kinda poorly.
