Larry Niven is my all-time favorite.
Ringworld, and The Ringworld Engineers.
His short story anthologies rock, too, but later works fail somewhat, since they are always dual-written by him and some nondescript mudwasp or other.

I guess what he does really well is pit a very unusual human, and well-cast alien colleagues, against a pitiless cosmos, which manages to faze them not at all. Dire danger made commonplace, and a fact of life.
Which is the actual state of all of us, although we rarely recognize it.

What, are you an ex-junkie?
Glad to hear you're still breathing, if only walking-wounded style.
I am hardly a long-term user of opioids, nor will I be.
It is actually quite unpleasant, in the pharmaceutical form, anyway.
The strange thing is that it doesn't actually seem to minimize the agony, but rather renders one into a state of not-caring about it.
That's my current state: I don't give a fuckin' toss, and possibly my recent comments illustrate this :)

BTW: what is this horrible fascination with so-called 'ad-hominems' being so terribly bad?
As I understand the term, it seems to describe a completely natural human response to dickheaded behaviour. What I don't understand at all is the apparent horror of dickheaded internet users to its use.
But there's hypocrisy for you.
One must always appear to be civilized especially when one isn't.
It's the age of passive-aggression...

Well, we seem to be currently short on available scientists. Thank God.
Although I could hold forth on the effects of morphine on extreme tooth pain, if you're interested.
I am, at this moment, an expert on that very subject.

Mental illlness is spawned in the self-serving, egotistical, scummy overactive human brain.
And gender-identity was spawned by mentally ill axe-grinders.

Mental illness could well be described in this context, as holding the conviction that it is the individual's right to offend people publicly, and that any offense taken by the majority is offensive to the individual.
For some unfathomable reason, the leftist believes that only individuals should have their offense recognized, while if the majority registers offense, then it is suddenly not offense at all, but bigotry.

Is there anything wrong with a 'human invention'?
I guess only when it suits one to say so.

Sanity screams that this thread should die, because it is ugly, ugly, UGLY.
It highlights the scumminess of humanity perfectly.
But here we are, mouthing off, and it's useful to see where it goes.
Who is who? Who is able to control their twitching fingers, and who is automatically wired to explode on nuance?
You don't find justice by outlawing prejudice. You don't stumble across peace by non-discrimination.
You don't save the planet by leveling half of it.

This just seems like inflexible dogmatism, to me.
 
I'm sure it does, just as I'm sure your entire life-experience consists of only what you think.
I'm 60. I've lived. I know what works and what doesn't work.
I'd suggest you don't press me on this matter, because I'm doped up on morphine, I have two abscessed teeth, and I'm currently gunning for any sign of left-wing dogma.
If you want a discussion/debate on this, find someone else to have it with.

Sane people make better use of their time than Googling new and even-worse things to be outraged at.
So somebody, somewhere is inconvenienced. So what?
I am so very, very sick of left-wing activists, ruining everybody else's lives, as well as their own, because they 'care' so much.

And anyway, even if huge swathes of the population believe whatever they believe, who has the right to tell them they're wrong?
Oh, I forgot: left-wing-messiahs.

How many 'self-realized' people do you know?
Would you recognize one if you did meet one?
By what criteria would you know?

Would you still seek to confine these few masculine women in feminine social roles and these few feminine men in masculine social roles?


Indeed I would. Because to trump the reality of the majority with the self-serving desires of a tiny minority, leads directly to where it has, in fact, led us: to a place of utter chaos.

The only point I am personally interested in, is the idea that any discrimination is bad.
Even amoebas discriminate. I follow their lead. I discriminate.
Other than that, gender can go fly a kite.
I know what I am, and that's all I need to know.

Welcome, then. The rule is: "Thou shalt not lurk".
You realize, I hope, that all these swingin' dicks here, are super-brainy, and so you need to be, too.
If you're not, then you need to be able to fake it so they don't realize.
And if you can't do that, then at least be of the opinion that you are.

You're Canadian. That's all that needs to be said.
Pierre Trudeau emasculated nearly every man that was a man, years ago.
It's a tribute to his effectiveness that even today, guys like you thank him for it.
