    1. t"'~,

      Mentioned here about embracing the rhetoric of half-truths and propaganda, interesting to think about the rhetoric of bullshiting--psyching yourself up is a form of self-construction, and I do think that there's a productive use of bullshitting around an issue to open up new avenues of approach. I also think of how Ralph Cintron in Angelstown talks about albures, a kind of bilingual pun-game that turns ordinary phrases dirty, as a form of honing and demonstrating intellectual skill and shrewdness in casual, workday chat.

    1. Why bullshit is no laughing matter

      Agreed.

      Let's highlight 99% of available text on the web to warn us when we encounter bullshit.

      I ain't laughing either, I think combining hypothes.is/ and an ad hoc browser addon may do the job.

      Have a look at https://github.com/hypothesis/vision/issues/216 if that warns a bell.

    1. Some players may even assume that they are Chell - akin to Heidegger’s notion of a tool being ready to hand rather than present at hand

      I call bullshit here. Totally superfluous Heidegger reference.

    1. But rather than allowing a massive reduction of working hours to free the world’s population to pursue their own projects, pleasures, visions, and ideas, we have seen the ballooning not even so much of the “service” sector as of the administrative sector, up to and including the creation of whole new industries like financial services or telemarketing, or the unprecedented expansion of sectors like corporate law, academic and health administration, human resources, and public relations. And these numbers do not even reflect on all those people whose job is to provide administrative, technical, or security support for these industries, or for that matter the whole host of ancillary industries (dog-washers, all-night pizza deliverymen) that only exist because everyone else is spending so much of their time working in all the other ones. These are what I propose to call “bullshit jobs.”

    1. de nouvelles recherches suggèrent que la psilocybine pourrait favoriser la croissance de nouvelles cellules du cerveau.

      "de nouvelles recherches suggèrent..." Citer les sources serait bien ? Sinon cette formulation sonne vraiment pas sérieux.
