Forum: Do you trust Alexa or Echo?
No, not at all. I'm very skeptical of any of the services attached to the big data companies. These companies operate with very little oversight or accountability and there's no clear regulatory framework for making sure that people's private information is kept secure. Like, an entire industry, worth many billions of dollars, all of that money being made by companies trading information about how best to manipulate you. None for me, thanks.

Though I try to keep my criticisms reasonable and grounded in reality. For that special subset of the population that's got the spider eggs hatching in the brain, this is not a concern. To that end, enjoy this video of Alex Jones interrogating his Amazon Alexa for its alleged CIA connections. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5kNP7tyhk8

It matters if you want to run for Senate XD

Subject: Re: Do you want kids?

Forum: Do you want kids?
For a long time, I "wanted" them in the sense that I thought that was just what you did when you grew up: you get married, you buy a house, you have 2.4 kids, etc. But the idea never brought my any happiness, and after I really began to think about what I wanted out of my life, I came to the conclusion that I just didn't want to.

The first reason is that I value my individuality and autonomy. The "marry house kids retire die" script (by the way I'm not too sold on the idea of marriage, either) that we're all expected to follow just seems to suck out so much freedom and impose on everyone such a highly specific set of norms and goals in life. I need to know that, no matter what I'm doing, I'm not tied down and that I can quit and go do something else if I want to. You can't do that if you have people depending on you.

The second reason is practical. I want to focus myself entirely on my scientific career. Statistically, a scientist's productivity plummets after having children.

Then there is a philosophical component as well. The world is overpopulated, what gives me the unique right to add to the population? Also, do I really have the right to force a person into existence just for the sake of my own "fulfillment"?

Forum: Circumcision
Who's going to be making fun of your kid about his penis?

Seriously, if your son ends up in a situation where all of his peers have gotten together and decided to judge him and bully because he has an intact prepuce then something has gone horribly, horribly wrong and it has nothing to do with circumcision.

Forum: Favorite source of energy?
Hello!

Personally, I am one of those people that need a little bit of caffeine to start their day. While this is definitely a habit, I am a sucker for coffee! Personally, I love it iced. Also, I have always enjoyed an English muffin with peanut butter for breakfast. Another favorite breakfast choice would be vanilla yogurt with strawberries and granola.

I really wish I could have the time in the morning to workout for a bit, I feel like that would be a healthier way to get some energy... but I am too tired to do that. ;(
