technology literally killing us
More like Natural Selection literally killing unworthy maggots. The sole virtue of the Human species is its extraordinary adaptability to environments and circumstances. If a person doesn't possess characteristic adaptability which is a result of strenuous mental and physical effort + pondering new routes to resolve a problem, that means they are too lazy or unwilling or stupid to find a way beyond suicide, meaning they have themselves pulled an off-switch to the right to live and influence the world. No sympathy for those shedding the right to it, for nature itself won't give it to them.

go to Las Vegas to attend an expo
apparently no ubers allowed in the taxi area of the airport so decide to take a cab to the hotel (might have just been lied to looking back on it)
cost me 42 fucking bucks for a 15 minute drive
have a good time at the conference for 3 days
take uber back to the airport
cost me 16 dollars
I feel no sympathy

have to tell him twice to pop the boot so I can put my luggage in
hands me a fare book and his phone
wants me to work out my own fare and input the destination
somehow manages to delete the destination and wants me to enter it again
at the end of the trip has the fucking nerve to ask for a tip

I attempted suicide and I honestly hope you die in your sleep. You think almost anyone has the balls to put a loaded gun to their head and pull the trigger? I did and by a massive lucky coincidence the bullet squibbed. Nobody knows about this too, the next day I just went on as normal and nobody has ever asked me if I'm okay.

Everyone will die in their sleep if not out of other causes, we are not immortals.
I can see why you attempted suicide with such a low IQ. It doesn't take balls to take away your own life because in that situation true courage comes from facing the very thing that overpowered your will to live and going on living. Suicide is always going to be a coward's way precisely because the causation becomes the sole object of courage. Even your mental gymnastics for trying to pass off suicide as something virtuous are a low IQ paradox.

Taxi driver...

Go!

Well everybody's sayin' that they're not so bad
Everybody's sayin' that we need 'em bad
Well everybody's got their fuckin' heads up their ass

Everybody tells me they perform a service
But the same fuckin' people say they drive 'em nervous
Well make your fuckin' mind up, you stupid twat

If you want to see them cry
Poke 'em in the eye
Put their fingers in the socket and watch them fry

Taxi drivers must die

Everybody's sayin' that they drive 'em nuts
But when it comes to revenge they ain't got the guts
Well crawl back into your little 'ole, you little rat

United and strong we can fight them back
Teach them all a fucking lesson that they'll never forget
And watch the little bastards come crawling back

"I'm sorry"

If you want to see them cry
Poke 'em in the eye
Put their fingers in the socket and watch them fry

Taxi drivers must die

If you want to see them cry
Poke 'em in the eye
Put their fingers in the socket and watch them fry

Taxi drivers must...

If you want to see them cry
Poke 'em in the eye
Put their fingers in the socket and watch them fry

its those damn medallions that cost a fortune.

The easy solution that would keep everyone happy is scrap the medalions, come up with a cheaper $100/year taxi operating license (eg proof of insurance, clean driving record, no serious past crimes) instead and then for the lost revenue have each taxi add a surcharge per mile

The market will then figure out how much is 'enough' taxis.
if NYC is concerned about traffic it should implement a fee like london has for entering certain congested zones.

Personally I think uber is a shit deal for drivers.

my uncle is the literal stereotype nyc cab driver, and he refuses to acknowledge that the job is fucking dead.
I keep telling him to GTFO and go home where he owns property and can live a comfy life, even work a desk job with his COLLEGE DEGREE (it's foreign though but still), but he refuses with my "murrica still has money" bullshit.
It's annoying the fuck out of me that he's basically wasting his life and after expenses isn't making any money. The stupid fuck is wasting his life being a kike puppet when he could live a comfy, albeit more basic life.
I'm getting the fuck out of here as soon as I finish grad school, so it's not like I'm giving hypocrite advice or anything.

I know most other Sup Forumstards are experiencing this too, with the outsourcing and job market saturation in IT and programming jobs.

Let me ease your fears.
I went to a mountain college that was small enough to not have a need for uber but big enough that walking to your friend's new year's eve bender would be more trouble than it's worth.
To combat these we developed a system called "beeping" which is, in practice the exact same as uber but cost only 3 dollars a person. It wasn't great money but if you needed quick cash and you had a car then that's just what you did.
I did this several times and drove much farther than 15 minutes to most of my stops for that measly 3 dollars, sometimes people would be nice and give you more but you couldn't expect it.
Every night I needed to make more than 35 dollars to turn a profit because I needed to fill up my tank and often I would finish each night with anywhere from 60-120 dollars based on people's generosity, nowhere near what an uber would make including the cut the company takes.
My point is, as much as people say the drivers are being screwed it's still very lucrative for a job that pays quite a bit more than minimum wage and doesn't require any kind of degree. People are doing fine, I've talked to many uber drivers when I've traveled and most of them say they prefer it to a desk job.
Take my ramblings for what you will.

I saw his taxes, none of these idiots that drive cabs have been making money since uber got big.
And to make matters worse, you can't make money off uber either, since there's just too fucking many in the city and the ratio of customers to uber drivers is too driver saturated.
Also uber takes a ton of fees out of each ride.
It's over. And a lot of these people have spend the last 10-20 years of their lives doing nothing but driving all day. They don't have any marketable skills and if they did no employer will take a person with an employment gap that big.

Brayden Clark

Something you guys and many other keep forgetting is that there is a lot more to the cost of being an Uber driver or cab driver.
Everytime that car is used it introduces more wear especially on tires, breaks, engine, the whole cooling system,etc.
Those things don't come cheap and is what makes being an Uber driver and the like not profitable in the long run which is why it's recommended as a temp or side job because the wear will eventually out way your profits.

Dominic Bennett
Dominic Bennett

Or started deregulating taxis decades ago instead of instating a crony capitalist mafia enforced by the government

Xavier Lewis
Xavier Lewis

it's because city governments cap the amount of taxi medallions at an arbitrary and very low number. They say its to control congestion, but it really has more to do with letting taxi companies charge much higher prices by restricting the amount of competition. If that wasnt the case and anyone who wanted one could go to City Hall's website and print out a taxi medallion for ten bucks, we wouldn't be having this problem.

Dylan Rogers
Dylan Rogers

It's either Uber et. al. or pawning your kidneys to get a medallion for the government
Uber does require a recent car so I guess pajeet buys one on credit, and unlike medallions the cars depreciate heavily

The sole virtue of the Human species is its extraordinary adaptability to environments and circumstances.

The thing is, what do you actually compare human adaptability to? There's no sentient species that we know of to compare. I know, I know, you're really basing this around your space elf rpgs, and that's fine, but if space elves are real, they probably have an RPG themselves where they're the adaptable ones. It's a retarded statement: Humans are the adaptable sentient species, our strength is our adaptability! The opposite statement has just as much support.

By any other metric of adaptability (environments lived in, variations per time period, etc, etc) there are non-sentient species that beat us.

Cameron Thompson

Biological adaptions yes, but we are not talking about this slow retarded process. We are talking about adaptability unconstrained by biology whereby Humans have taken a far wider specter of processes to engage, depending on creativity and tools and conscious strategizing, none of which are functions that viruses or bacteria have nor can they compete with.
You mentioned parasites in terms of adaptability, there are at least a dozen ways for Humans to rid themselves of those parasites, the only thing stopping us being our choice to do so, therefore it's not that the parasites you masturbate to are living on their own but are rather being allowed to live by us.

medallions

These things are insanely expensive. They used to be worth over $1million.

This is the end result of interfering with free market. Sure gypsy cabs existed, that and guys in limos that hang out in front of hotels and hot spots were usually a better option, but you couldn't just wave one of them down - they would come to you and offer services. It was inefficient as a business model. Along comes technology, and all of a sudden you can get the same service on demand. Meanwhile the crooked protection racket is cut off at the knees. And never mind the fact that yellow cabs have a reputation for being dirty, gross, hot, smelly, etc.

Even then, different jobs always get created. No person should be 100% focused on a very specific sector/field. Just learn to also do something else while working (something that I guarantee 99.9% of taxi drivers never bothered doing)

Yeah, getting fucked on mileage over your pre-set agreed amount.
wash cars at a Subaru stealership and many of the advertised leases are "ultra-low mileage" ie, 10k-12k per annum

yeah you're right, but the socialism is unions and government action trying to keep the taxi business afloat.

what do you think saddle makers did when the car came out? everybody who doubled down on making saddles is gone. those who pivoted and started making leather car seats and dashboards are still around.

hurr humans are good at adapting into situations where humans are good at adapting into
Humans are honestly trash at adaptation, both as a society and as an individual.
All your evidence of "human adaptability" are always to environments or situations humans themselves created. Put literally any external pressure on the human and 90% of the population dies, with risk of extinction and mass genocide (e.g. Smallpox in the new world).
Hell even in human created environments, we are trash at adaptation. War remains one of our biggest threats and could cause human extinction, and yet we can't adapt to avoid it. War is literally human nature and we clearly can't adapt ourselves to remove it from our nature.

Put literally any external pressure on the human and 90% of the population dies
Yet 10% will always survive, as your dumbfuck examples showcase survival despite all odds.
A showcase of adaptability above even cockroaches. Even in the New World plenty of natives still survived via adaption. Same with the Black Plague, if not people like Chinese eradicating it via conventional ways, Europe amassed resistant people and created cordons.
Those are all adaptability tactics no other creature has. You can stop being stupid now, you don't know shit and every argument you make is against yourself in all irony.

You are a faggot. War, even genocide is animalistic.

War for esoteric reasons unrelated to base survival is also animalistic.

This is what you have. This is why you think humans are "adaptable"
Stop being so short sighted, we are absolutely not adaptable.
hurr 10% always survive!
Well obviously, we are all survivors. The second it is 0% we won't be around to talk about it. This is a cookie cutter case of survivorship bias.

I never said war was exclusive to humans. Nice strawman. Seems you have to resort to that to continue your argument.
When I said "war is human nature" I obviously meant it is a natural trait of humans, not that it is natural only to humans. Either you're illiterate or you are manipulatively trying to twist my words.

Your article is ironically a fallacy in itself.
Humans differ from animals in the reactionary variability term, which is what your article doesn't tackle at all. Humanity survives by the factoid that any event it faces produces an exponentially expanding quantity of independent groups and cells with varied approaches and tactics to the event and often so separated from each other that the death of one doesn't lead to the death of another taking a different approach and also having further adaptability by observing the dying independent cells and what they did wrong, then proceeding to disperse into new independent cells with newfound knowledge creating even more approaches. The two greatest world wars are a perfect example where a big enough part of the world was completely intact in infrastructure and manpower despite the war, even in the middle of it (Switzerland and Scandinavia). In case of nuclear fallout as the worst case scenario we still have enough independent cells spread out with different approaches to the fallout, which would exponentially rise even more after it as a reaction to learning from it and moving/tackling.
It's not me making a survivability bias, it's you being too stupid and uneducated and lacking in self-awareness to recognize what differs humans from animals - infinitely variable reaction/response to events.
Go get a new brain or kill yourself, both are valid options for someone so dumb.

Your survivorship bias claim doesn't invalidate the fact that biological adaptability is inferior to practical/creative adaptability, and that humans lead in this area, because no other living entity has this ability on this planet at least.
I hope you understand that you are now shifting goalposts out of stupidity and that your article is a strawman.

Your article itself argues that survivability bias is based on making preconceived independent examples of success, which is the opposite of arguing a system of segregated variability which tackles all areas and has exponential growth and reaction.
You haven't even read the very article you posted as an argument you dumb fuck. I love it when dumb people post shit they don't even read.

Another fallacy, survivorship bias is a theory and not a law, it has a 50-50 effect in real world application and has seen as many humans break it as have fumbled to it.
This is not a debate on whether i will survive or not, this is a debate of whole humanity and exponentially increasing chances of survival through segregation, dispersion, and variability.
