I remember dial-up internet. It sucked. Technology, thank you for advancing.

I remember cassette tapes.


i still wish we could still undo some stuff

like atomic weapons

guns

facebook , twitter , internet on phones

tinder

lol


What if there's a kid in Africa who can only access DXP on a smartphone? That would be incredibly unfair. Actually, 85% of the world will access the internet from a phone. A smart phone is literally their computer. This will be a boon to underdeveloped countries. I'm not trying to be an ass, just a nerd.

Atomic weapons are bad, mmmkay.



you'd also know that the technology industry is heavily dependent upon the exploitation of said African children to mine for precious minerals that our cellphones and other devices use



There is exploitation of children in Africa. They are being exploited in diamond and gold mining. They are also being exploited in mining for cheap cobalt, which happens to be a resource used in cell phone and laptop batteries. No argument there. I hope to see that change. I believe it will change.

The irony is that the standard of living will change through the advent of technology. Technology will offer under developed countries access to education that they don't currently have. People will have better access to to employment opportunities. All this will be easier and cheaper to implement through technology, which is here and will continue to proliferate anyway.




#1

The irony is that most of the stuff you said is actually a lie.

Africa is a continent first of all and what you see on tv and other media outlets is just a small representation.

Just take the economic diversity and living conditions in the U.S which is just a country...

now can you imagine the diversity within Africa?

There are doctors , lawyers , CEOS etc in numerous "countries" within Africa

people also live in houses

they have malls

people go to college and grad school etc


#2 Development = Neocolinialism

a lot of parts of Africa are already "developed" hence some places have shopping malls that our comparable to ours

other parts again didn't need to be.

we really should leave Africa alone.

we should have left Africa alone.

we've destroyed more within African nations through paternalistic intervention than we've helped

and again it was all for money and not because we really wanted to "help those backward savages".










I used the example of Africa because that's what I'm used to hearing in examples of underdeveloped nations The truth being, it could be any lesser developed nation in the world.

If you have free time I think you should take an African history class. That might clear things up a bit.

The main issue I had was that you were reiterating a political view that should be contested more.

People here in the U.S don't have access to technology , clean water, health care and other things , I wish people bring that up more instead of places abroad that actually have their own separate governments and cultural customs.

Also if some indigenous communities want to live without technology we shouldn't push that on them.

We have to respect the sovereignty of other nations and also understand that technological advancement does not always make things better.

All that being said

I don't like this guy for you.

Reincarnation is not helping either lol



I gave her advice, Fish. Read it again.

Overall I think she is too much of a hard ass. Probably all that Aqua. It might work because this Scorp is allegedly a feminist (LOL), but I personally can't deal with mouthy women like that.


"mouthy woman" ???

you are doing a great impersonation of a cancer male / typical earth sign.

what are you overcompensating for?

also if by "mouthy" you meant an opinionated woman who stands her ground

i have to whole heartedly disagree with you

those women are sexy as hell.

it's okay to have feelings and be in touch with them when you have a penis you know?

you don't have to be a male chauvinist to make up for the fact that you are sensitive.

I don't know I just feel like there's better options out there.

There are guys out there who don't make sexist jokes and don't have to apologize.

They aren't that common though so I get why you would opt to forgive and forget

- You guys are super stubborn?

D
never. gonna. happen.


Well i guess he'll learn something then from this.... Not to disrespect women.... I'm not super invested so it's good.


is this your first time dating a scorpio?


Dating yes..... As in maybe long term potential...?

every pisces woman has at least one learning experiencing with one scorpio man.

it's usually when she is a teenager or in her early twenties

however that you are both in your 30s is a promising sign

they say it tends to last if a pisces woman and scorpio man meet later on in life as

maturity and better communication skills greatly aid in keep things more level/rational

Hey y'all..... Just started dating this scorpion.. First time on THIS board woohooo! Anyway he pursued me.. On fb, via mutual friends. Good sign. We spent a couple weekends together. We live a couple hrs apart. Hit it off pretty well.. Lots in common.. Hes very nice passionate focused has the scorpio stare! Ahhhhh... He seems already a tad possessive but laughs it off.. Ive made it clear its waaaay too soon for that. He said something that pissed me off and i told him and he got defensive whilst drunk. He has since apologized and told me how incredible he thinks i am blah blah blah.. I told him that was no way acceptable ever. To be insulting or defensive. He seems sincere. You guys are super stubborn? I guess im just wondering... Is this the shape of things to come? Is he going to become a total marker and completely dismiss the things i say or can i keep him in check. I know he respects me... Ive just never dated a scorp long term before.. I just wanna know what to expect. Im a pisces.

Interesting. Hes not silent.. Nor brooding. He couldn't manipulate me if he tried. I dont have any feelings for him yet but he seems to have a lot for me.


Trust me! You can say whatever you are saying! You are already in a deep butter over him and that article strikes me as funny and 100% true!
Just buckle up or get out now!

Well...who am I kidding?

Or don’t sleep with him! Ever...you had...right? So read the article...and best of luck from the bottom of my heart.

No... Im really not. I have no feelings for him yet. But hes fun to hang out with.


Yes love. Keep saying it to yourself until he performed ‘famous Scorpio dissapearing act’ for weeks...
Then read the article again...lol

What did he say to piss you off?


He just said some stuff about women that i very much did not agree with.... Not super sexist but borderline... He has since apologized.


What kinda stuff? Sometimes dudes try to be cute and funny and fail.


True true.. I feel weird getting into details.. Just insensitive butter. He does consider himself a feminist so that's good.

Male feminist = kitty.
