The Rules:

1) Be excellent to each other. No one likes a jerk. Don't be a jerk in this thread. No fighting, no put downs, no name calling - or else Reta will beat you with a stick. >:(

2a) The title of the next thread is to be decided by general acceptance before this one caps; try not to overlap with previous ones. Whomever caps the thread should make the new one.

2b) Keep the ToS in mind when deciding on a thread title. This will make it far less likely to be deleted. Also, the title of the thread should always involve food! This is the healer forum and we're weird.

3) Copy and paste these rules and the below list into the first post of the new thread. Add the title of the new thread to the bottom of the list.

It's that simple. I figure our self preservation is greater than our greed. Only time will tell.


Honestly, it may not be, on a global scale. There are lots of populations that don't even have the tools (education, etc) to understand that their well-being is at risk, much less do something about it. But there *have* to be limits on population growth and consumption. If we don't impose them, the environment eventually will.

^ I was saving that from last thread. Lol.

And yes, Up really is that good.

I know I promised not to say anything that was this deep lest people get heated etc

but

Has a factor to model self destruction. I think there's a fairly good chance that we might cause our own extinction.

At the very least, I think there will be major population loss due to multi-drug resistant organisms, or something of that nature. The good news is we'll probably be dead from old age by then? >.>

Yes and no?

It really depends. I wonder if our issues with antibiotics will hit us before we're dead. Torchwood did a good job of addressing this at one point.

Antibiotics will just stop working when the bacteria have adapted to survive them. What then? Making a new and better Antibiotic may take years. Years we just won't have.

I didn't mean to irritate you Mist ... come baccccccccccccccccck. I like your brain and I would like to see what you think more.

(and this i s why I have no friends)

I think it's a safe assumption that we will be the cause of our own extinction, really. I think that when considering the idea of changing something like human behavior, changing things like hatred that has existed for centuries, you have to acknowledge that it's not a simple task.

It's much easier to fix things (IE: your water example) but to fix people, it requires something that we haven't figured out. We haven't gotten to the point where we can do that effectively and I don't know if we'll see it in my lifetime.

It's not happy shiny optimism, but it's being realistic. By all means, do everything in your power to try and change things for the better. It can only serve to make things better in one way or another, but acknowledge that it's not a simple task. It's not something that can be done in a safe or easy way, and that's an extremely unfortunate truth.

WALL-E makes me cry everytime. I haven't seen UP! yet, is it that good?


UP is just.. I don't feel like crying today.

mmhmm.

But it will get progressively worse, with time. And we can see what those already do to people.

Well. I wager we need people more intune with humans (Mist.... etc) and people who are more intune with quality of life.

I wouldn't have the faintest idea how to change humans. I just know that we're juts as evil as we are loving. Carl Sagan hit it on the head in that regard. Our defining moment as a society will be when we have to either overcome ourselves, or perish.

It's a bit too far out to grasp. But I do know that we should do everything we can to provide people the bare bones minimum of what tehy need. Food, water, shelter, medical care, literacy. Freedom from oppression, violence, [sexual assault]

I am slowly but surely gearing up. God, this process is so hard for me.


Justice to Honor to buy the PvP gear. It is base 476 ilevel and helps get you into ToT faster than upgrading your heroic stuff to 471. (nothing wrong with pvp gear for pve in this expac)

Save your valor for the 522 shadow pan assault gear. You can buy the neck without any rep.

You get a pair of 502 boots by doing the helping the man up the mountain quest as part of opening up barrens. Don't upgrade your current boots.

Good luck.

This. But there are some days that I just can't deal with pondering every single thing that's wrong with this world. So I think it's ok to focus on smaller things sometimes, because the alternative can be so overwhelming as to disincentivize people from doing *anything*.

The only way to change people is to force them to change.
This doesn't mean hold a gun to their head, but shape the environment to change them for the better.

Present them with challenges that force them to evaluate themselves as human beings and find what is truly important to them.

What are the valor changes with the upcoming patch? Are they wiping valor?

Also, yes. It's both a problem that can be tackled at the individual level but it's a GLOBAL problem. To neglect either end isn't worthwhile. But yes, it's quite the task. But the changes themselves will have to start with one person, and then another, and then another...
