except Americans have more personal freedom than any other citizen in the known universe
but instead just have the thought in your mind and then express it with the tools you have in the language you need to speak even if they're very limited
well said...this is excellent advice...and phrased succinctly
we can 'force' ourselves to think in language, but our thoughts are deeper than language...it's taking the step to see that all language is a tool for communication, not inherent to our brain
except it was total trolling...as other's on this thread have pointed out, it is completely accurate to describe her as Chinese
you and OP are just trolling to deflect the accurate criticism of both facebook and China
those questions are to point out the absurdity of OP's (and your) defense of China
obviously China is older than the US...you know that's not the point
the point is, you and OP are irrational in your defense of China
really..."look like a fool"
i said safety equipment can be bulky and annoying, and cheating in some areas is understandable, but there is a line you do not cross that everyone in the site understands
what about that makes me "look like a fool"
be specific...it will help if you cite my original comment
you've got nothing but personal attacks and unfalsifiable claims to support your contentions
none of your counterpoints attack my logic or offer a falsifiable counterpoint
everything you've typed here is just random rhetoric to support your ego
if you has a logical counter to my argument you would have used it by now...
except it's not "just" one of anything....not one rude experience, not one asshat Burner (you), not just one example
given what was described, your behavior here, and the Burners I've known, comparing to other festivals I've been to (Rainbow Gathering, Bonaroo, several others), AND other articles about Burning Man on slashdot there is no other conclusion to make
Burning Man encourages people to act with a "superiority complex"
It's baked-in to the event...ask anyone "What is Burning Man" and you can usually see the artificial scarcity of knowledge used as a way to demonstrate your superiority over others on full display....you mystify it to make you "cool" and have artificial superiority to "noobs"...it's all a game for your ego
you understand you're confirming my theory with every post you type, right?
what about my post makes you think i'm advocating using hard hats to fight Ebola?
do you know what an analogy is?
my comments about using hard hats were an analogy, to make about point about lines you simply do not sensibly cross
well that's real talk...i can understand "circumstances" i suppose...it is still a dumb mistake IMHO
as i was saying above in another comment, I've worked with hazardous construction materials...nothing like Ebola obv...but we had to wear protective gear and it got annoying
ex: Hard Hat...some jobs require hard hats everywhere, even outdoors in the open air...it's not crazy to cheat a bit in that area...however, only an idiot would go into an area with heavy work being done above them w/o the hard hat...in fact, other workers would stop you as soon as they saw you b/c an injury on site wastes a ton of time
there's strict rules and then common sense and the the line you don't cross...what I'm saying is, given that he was a *doctor* and *knew he was handling Ebola* it seems weird that he'd do something that would put him near that line
i'm all for an abundance of caution...let them wear the HAZMAT stuff....
what kills me is that I've worked with hazardous materials in a construction setting, and there's always a trade-off between being bulky safety equipment and time
but...there is sort of a line you don't cross...like hard hats...some job sites are "Hard Hat Only" as soon as you enter the property...which is a bit silly...but you're an idiot if you are guiding a crane placing I-beams and don't have your Hard Hat on
see what I mean?
i just don't see why competent people can't get this right
i guess you can say i was going for "doing an idiotic thing" not "inherently an idiot"
maybe "being an idiot" or "made an idiotic mistake"
idk...but this isn't a cup of hot green tea here...the whole idea is they're supposed to cover all the angles!
thanks for the response...
my point is, that if YOU know this then the people who make the procedures must also...and therefore there already be adaptations/improvements to procedures OR if that can't happen then quarrantine
if we know the threat exists, that's enough information to mitigate it in SOME way
that's the problem here IMHO...
IMHO, either Ebola is easier to transmit than we are being told _OR_ these Ebola doctors who get the disease are FSKING IDIOTS
if it is so damn hard to get, how the hell do Doctors who should be the best at following procedure can get?
i think people are just morons, no matter what degrees they have
you can chase rhetorical circles all you want but you cannot address this fact:
the people should WANT suggestions for improvement, and the response TFA author got indicates a "superiority complex" mentality
this is correct, and no matter what your experience you cannot contradict it, given what you have indicated
they should welcome suggestions, TFA author was not welcomed and was instead give a line of BS
the fact that you think that b/c you were in the ice line once makes any of the above not correct **shows that Burners and Burning Man is about demonstrating abstract superiority**
they should welcome suggestions, TFA author instead was treated insultingly and rudely....ACCEPT THIS FACT
