Comment Re: Blame the news websites. (Score 1) 624

This is what happens when both parties scrape the gunk off the bottom of the barrel, and then nominate it for president.

It forces people to choose who they hate less, instead of choosing who they support more. It put conservatives in the position of either abandoning their conservative beliefs, or supporting someone who is blatantly racist and sexist, and forced liberals to defend someone who was blatantly corrupt.

There is no way this wasn't going to get really ugly, really fast. (what's worse, both parties had to have seen this coming, and pushed ahead anyway, as if widening the political divide in the US was their goal all along)

It's called Collective Stupidity, the more people share ideas, the dumber they get.

This happens not only because some people are lazy and won't think for themselves if the answers are just handed to them, but also because of herd pressure (everyone else seems to think this way, so if I disagree I won't fit in)

Most of the wireless VR method use their own low-latency wireless system instead of existing wireless technologies like wifi or bluetooth

Hating cilantro is genetic.

Both soap and cilantro contain aldehydes, but only about 10% of humans have the receptor gene to detect them. For those people, cilantro tastes like soap. (I'm in that same group, cilantro tastes like soap to me, and I hate it when Mexican restaurants don't offer a non-cilantro salsa)
