There should be a law
  • Having read all of this a few times and thinking about each thing being talked about, there is one thing that comes to my mind: discounts

    I remember when I was little, there were certain places like the movie theater or certain venues that have a "partnership discount system". They would treat groups of people with under a certain number of people as a singular individual, more or less, or favorably in certain aspects. They'd make the whole experience this way. If you showed up with a friend, you'd get more out of the experience than if you showed up on your own. Probably how the occupation/client aspect mentioned would work. So there are small social engineering tricks I'm sure which can combine in a contrived way to make a system that entices the middle of Maslow's needs to be fulfilled.

    Something like that in of itself just requires privately enforced discretion.

  • Writers of Lemmy, what good character qualities/virtues do your main characters have that you don't?

    A fascinating question because I used to intentionally make my characters Mary Sues. As a former child who used to write, for a while I never understood why people would give character traits they disagree with to the character or characters who are supposed to represent what is right in your world, since they're the ones unfolding the story's solution. This had the side effect of my main character being nicer than me, and sometimes my parents would remark to me "why can't you be like your main character", which had the side effect of putting me on the fast track to self-improvement. Anyone else?

    What do you wear for work?
  • Unless I misunderstand, the last one seems pretty normal. So you just happen to only default on one normal thing? Also, sorry for confusing things earlier and leading to this weird convo path.

  • How would you define what constitutes TMI when it comes to leaking personal info?
  • Adding this because I consider it interesting, one interesting response I've been told by this person is to treat it like copyright, which she says is the view she holds. That is, something like a name or identifying code number thing or whatnot should not be shared because it's an extension of the individual and therefore would fall under copyright infringement.

  • What's the most eccentric use of Occam's Razor you've ever witnessed?
  • Eccentric meaning the example that would be considered the most foolish or far out. I didn't know a better synonym if the word eccentric doesn't work. Most skeptics would understand the use of the word eccentric, but to give an example, the other day I met a little kid who couldn't understand why the moon is invisible during its full moon stages and why it looks like a cloud, and the little kid said she thought the moon was just a cloud which has turned into rain during the new moon, only to evaporate again. But of course, this is a little kid, so in this case it's not unnatural.
