Visit my homepage. I am a polymath and a rōnin scholar with interests in many areas, including political science, economics, history, and philosophy. I've been writing about all of these topics, and others, for the past two decades.
"The Only Thing That NFTS Give Back Is a Hyperlink That Will Expire One Day"
As the subtitle suggests, this story is a rather personal one. I've left out some details, but I really wanted to give my own personal experience with NFTs. I decided to write this piece because of an interesting conversation I had with someone who was very much opposed to NFTs. At one point they made the remark that "the only thing that NFTs give back is a hyperlink that will expire one day."
Medium Thinks It’s Hateful to Point Out Bigotry Against White People
A little bit of background might be in order considering the title. Racism, and racial violence, are complex issues. And there's a lot of emotion involved. That emotion can sometimes take the form of articles, comments, and so on. Sometimes they can be quite extreme, and too extreme. Some people are indeed full of hate.
Tori Died by Chocolate
Tori was a gentle but adventurous soul, who very much liked chocolate. In most aspects of their life, Tori was quite frugal, but not when it came to chocolate. They tried every kind of chocolate they could, and it was never enough. They tried homemade chocolate. They tried imported chocolate from the "best" brands in the world. It still wasn't good enough for Tori.
Ethical Necromancy From an Expert
So you're interested in getting into necromancy. Maybe your friend mentioned it to you at the café. Or perhaps you just saw something about it online. You might think that necromancy is all about raising armies of undead to overthrow the world, but honestly that hobby is rather passé. Really, humans are annoying enough when they're alive. A bunch of undead ones are just dull. If you really want to have some fun with necromancy, and want to be a little more ethical about it, I have a few suggestions.
When Your Home is Alive
Hey everyone in the past. It’s been a long time. Shuu here. Your favorite rat-boi scientist and content creator. I know rats don’t normally live that long, but being a special lab rat, it turns out that I live for a super long time. Anyway, I wanted to say hi to all my past fans. Hope you’re doing well. I miss you.
A Colony Stranded
In a recent article, I wrote about the idea that aliens could indeed be visiting Earth. I don't believe it's actually happening, but I admit that it is a possibility, even if we don't accept that alien technology can allow for traveling faster than the speed of light. The scenario involved a colony ship, that was sent to Earth, only to find out that sentient life was already here. I want to expand on this idea a bit more.
A Fox Went Out And I Still Remember
An old folk song from England speaks of a weary fox, out collecting food for his family. The song, originally a poem, dates back at least 500 years and is quite adorable. I'm not sure how common the song is in America, but I remember it from my childhood. I do know that the poem and song are popular enough that they've been turned into picture books for children. The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night: an old song, illustrated by Peter Spier and Fox Went out on a Chilly Night, by Wendy Watson. Spier was a Dutch-American illustrator and writer who produced over two dozen children's books. He sadly passed away in 2017. Meanwhile, Watson is a third-generation author and artist, and member of the Authors Guild.
Getting Rich by Playing Games
Ever since Crypto Kitties created their blockchain based tokens on the Ethereum blockchain, people have been trying to come up with the next big thing in blockchain gaming. A lot of games have been fairly simple collectible games. Others, especially on the Tron blockchain, have really been casino games focused on gambling.
The World Will Be Saved by Polymaths
I can see what most other people cannot. I can truly see the big picture in the way that few can. I am not boasting here. It’s simply because I’m a polymath. I have a solid understanding of a lot of topics, which allows me to see a broad picture of how things are and how they should be, as well as how to get there. I see how all parts of the puzzle fit together, though my ability to actually move the pieces around is limited.
“You’re Just an Anthropologist”
I’m a generalist, when it comes to learning. But I do list my anthropology background in many cases, in part because anthropology is such a broad field of study. Unfortunately in many discussions, a background in anthropology is considered meaningless.
