Comment yawn. (Score 2, Insightful) 739

Who'd'a thought the DNC would favor a centrist party insider over a left-leaning outsider? (The Bernie camp has been complaining about this since day one.)

Who'd'a thought the internet is full of hax0rs that break into any and every system they can and proclaim that they've done something earthshaking?

Who'd'a thought Assuange would try to spin it as something to do with the Hillary server scandal?

Who'd'a thought a campaign manager would have made an outrageous claim?

Who'd'a thought the opposing campaign manager would make a vacuous counter-claim?

Who'd'a thought Slashdot would run with such a nothing-burger story when there are actually interesting things going on in the world?

I take my subject back - a yawn overrates the whole thing.

If I were Trump, I'd find campaign issues other than "crooked" and "bad judgement" to run against:

"crooked" - Under investigation for fraud, probably soon to be under investigation for bribery to get earlier fraud investigations squashed.

"bad judgement" - Three wives, four bankruptcies.

They've zoomed in on the mechanism for decision making. That says nothing about free will.

If they find a mechanism for decision making in bullfrogs, will they conclude that they have free will?

If the relevant structures in a human are damaged, will they conclude that the person does *not* have free will? Not hold them accountable for crimes?

And of course it's well known that alcohol, other chemicals, even magnetic fields affect our decision making. Are those also part of the mechanism of free will?
