Just think, that nighttime is the natural state of the universe and
daytime is only caused by a nearby radiating ball of flame.


I could argue that day is the natural state and night is only caused by the occlusion by the other side of our own planet.

Yeah but the ball of flame is there. If you were in transit from Earth to Mars, it would be day all of the time.

I get that you're trying to say in the absense of all things it would be dark, but then is there a universe at all? Can a universe exist and stars or other light sources not naturally form?

I have yet to encounter an AI that will, even when directly commanded
to do so, take the skeptic position on anthropogenic climate change.

And in the spirit of Douglas Adams, the universe changed because I asked it to.

https://gab.ai/ will argue from either side of a controversial issue (including that one) if you ask it to. It doesn't get in your face editorializing and shutting down the conversation if you ask it to work with you on something the Silicon Valley culture doesn't agree with.

However you might feel about their social network, their LLM is useful.

Thanos was right, just for the wrong reason.   Really wish the infinity stones were real, and i had them. And yes, id be willing to make the sacrifice that a mere mortal human would face if they used them.

Fuck that, I want a programmable infinity gauntlet. I could easily select which half of the people in the universe to dispose of.

In theory, its implied that the owner of the stones can do whatever the hell they want, within their power. Just look at the things Dr Strange would do, bounce around at will, within the limits of his stone. And Loki zapping people with the mind stone and traveling around at will with the space stone. And later Thanos when he had the space stone.  ( and others within cannon ). Putting them together just gave infinite power.. But not restrict free will of the wielder. 

So, i fully believe wiping the universe of a random 1/2 was just his personal goal that he achieved. it was mentioned more than once as his goal. so i dont see it as a restriction placed on him: "well all i can do i 1/2 but its better than nothing" .  And, look at how him and his 'team' were removed later by Tony.  That was clearly targeted and was not just a general 'restore' event.  Tho there is debate if he dusted them or sent them back, but i lean towards a true dusting, as do most fans. But even if Tony was that stupid as Thanos would just try again, it was clearly not 'just' restoration of the people Thanos removed from existence.

It seems Reagan was right.

In less than one generation, we went from what we had then, to a banana republic, and will be a full blown 3rd world socialist nation.  ( just reading the news that Trump is being ordered to pay out at least one 350 million bill NOW even tho hes filing for appeal, which normally means its on hold. )

Humanity is perfectly capable of self-termination.

I would just use my awesome powers to escape to a heavenly planet faraway from Earth, taking my horses and dogs and chickens et al with me. And also as many ohter horses/donkeys/zebras etc. I could take with me.

I don't know about that. We are particularly good at fixing slow-moving disasters.

According to Biden, even when the second amendment was drafted, you couldn't buy a Marvel Cannon. Of course he's wrong, but that's nothong new.
