StumbleUpon is not what it used to be (it changed again recently, look at the date). Once, it was a search engine with an option to make comments for other users. That was nice, even though SU has always been badly designed, but it worked years ago.
People used the option to post comments in various ways, mostly in pictures, unfortunately. It was a nice environment for some social networking, depending on so many uncountable things.
Now (look at the date above), it's nothing nice any more, and the page design went from bad to worse. Now, whatever you say is open to anybody on the Net, and so called "your page" is full of crap you haven't put there. It's so confusing, and so rudely "commercialized" by the new owner: eBay (not longer any more).
SU, as it is now, is not a place where I want to be any more. I did meet some nice people here, and I even invited some to join SU. My sincere apologies to them all.
I'll stay here a bit longer just to give enough time so that people can contact me before I clear "my" page. I believe we can do better without what we can find here.
What about the SU search? No idea. At the moment StumbleUpon looks worse than Facebook, even though "you" still have no wall people can piss on. Coming up soon, it seems.
(It seems things changed since SU was bought back by the people who created it, so I hear. Let's see what happens here.)
This s a historical document. I guess we should know where we are, and how it happened...
--> "Social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace are unlikely to help users build close new friendships, a British researcher said Tuesday."
--> "Welcome Gotname... Likes 679 pages, 12 videos, 38 photos, 14 fans, Received 2 reviews "
--> "Considerable evidence has amassed showing that humans don't like to think."
--> "This error is not confined solely to waiters; you may say "you too" when an usher tells you to enjoy the film, when an airline employee tells you to enjoy your trip, or even when a friend says "happy birthday." The "you too" is one of the most common errors in human discourse."
I love cats. These little ultimate predators are so much more than most people think, way beyond their elegance and beauty. They definitely know how to play the evolutionary game, too. They are wonderful companions, but only if you can earn their respect. You can't train them, but they can be told, and they can learn things. They are often funny, and entertaining...
--> "Ultimately, of course, it is absolutely impossible to understand and appreciate our natural universe unless you know when to stop investigating."
--> that is right... free the world - suction style ... a joke, you would think ... and calling themselves reporters without the borders ... ... wow, must be the age of no borders ... and check out the term they invented "internet black holes" ... how catchy ...
go RWB, liberators of humanity ... free those poor b....rds ... teach them the languge of us, free thinking people ...
how the hell are we going to deal with our own problems once we run out of those black hole, evil-x etc. countries...
ps. please help
--> The best approach for any 9/11 researcher with honest intentions is to, if possible, wipe from their minds the official version of events and take the attitude of someone who has just returned from a 5 year trip to the outer reaches of the solar system, during which time they had no communication with planet earth.
--> "The list of confirmed extrasolar planets keeps growing, and has now passed two hundred members--almost all of which are gas giants like Jupiter and Saturn. But the hunt is on for Earth-like worlds! "
A new drug that can actually cure various types of cancer? It challenged some prevalent assumptions about cancer, it seems. This could really work.
Here is a more technical explanation of cancer, and why/how DCA could be a real cure. It definitely looks like a good start.
People in Europe definitely don't have this much fun with their ignorance and mental deficiency as Americans do. However, there are too many morons all over the world.. 'Vacuous people' is a nice way to call them, or just some of them. Unfortunately, psychology lacks proper classification. If they don't drool, they are just fine. Kidding, but they can vote too.
I've noticed that Americans don't like to be called stupid, but they do seem to love participating in shows made for just that purpose. Identifying yourself with a larger physical community, or identifying others with in the same way is not a smart thing to do. Being unwillingly identified is usually a sign of stupidity on the verge of abusiveness.
Stupidity could be the single most important problem in this world. Add greed to it, put it in a democratic environment, and you'll have immoral politicians, businessmen and religious leaders terrorizing absolutely everybody, manipulating moronic masses to their own destruction. It's scary. We are lucky to be alive. The question is how long. It shouldn't be funny.

--> As a matter of fact, scientists have begun to study why some people believe and other don't, from a biological perspective.They have identified certain naturally occurring chemicals in our bodies that can give us religious experiences.
