Philosophy is gay and beta. Richard Feynman agrees. Just ask Leonard Susskind. He agrees. Then again, I wonder what the real polymaths in history would say.

What are you talking about?

>>16450148
Nothing specific. Simply being unable to overcome your autopilot responses to everything, which default to failure. Never trying for anything, never able to concentrate or apply willpower when needed. Unable to delay gratification. You break the problems you face into smaller steps, then find you can't even manage those. What is the rational response to being an absolute failure in every regard, including being able to implement a rational response to one's own failure?

A waiter I had the other day told us he was a philosophy major. He then said to us

>Every event starts with a genesis, and ends in a revolution. I hope that your revolution is an empowering one.

excuse me how do I get a new waiter

This is a very detailed and witty answer, demonstrating your understanding and command of philosophy.

What do you do when you do not have the equiment to live in this world? I have a lot of disabilities and I honestly do not see a future for myself. I can not do day classes for college or work a full time job. I feel I am constantly leeching off others I have a part time job just in retail and even then I am sick a lot and only really do work all week and that is it. I would love to be an engineer like my brothers and dads but I have mental disabilities that get in the way of that. If this is how life is going to be I do not want to be alive any longer.

What would you do in my situation? I feel trapped in my body and mind.
>>
>>16450507
>I can not do day classes

why. Every school offers a tremendous amount of support for the disabled.
>>
>>16450511
I have tried. I look completely normal and when I tell people my conditions they look suprised I look younger than what I am too so when teachers see me doing certian things they think I am being rude or doing it on purpose. I am also agorphobic so crowded places like schools do not go well for me. I have crohns and I need to use the washroom a lot.
>>
>>16450521

Okay. Just know that you are deciding not to deal with the problems, no one made that decision for you. If you registered with your schools disability program they would assist you in communication your needs to your teacher, on top of many services they offer.

What is virtue, and can it be taught?

>>16450545
I was signed through the disability department and reconized I had issues the pasts with teachers bullying me about my disabilities in college I reported them to the dean but nothing was done. I worked hard while in college but I could not really handle it I switched to online and got a gpa of 3.9 for graphic and web design but I feel like the standard was easier and I did not really learn much it was only a year certificate.

Is it ethical to hunt for meat?

>>16450709
Ah, this is Kant. Good one.

It depends. Kant talks about ethics and stuff.
>>
>>16450717
Where? In Jersey?
>>
>>16450721
What? No like the philosopher. There was a philosopher named Kant who talked about ethics. That's what I was saying to answer his question.
It's complicated and too much to explain if you don't already know.
>>
>>16450732
Ethics can be summed up in one sentence, but hey, whatever floats your boat. I say: rock out with your cock out.
>>
>>16450739
>Ethics can be summed up in one sentence
This is why I am a philosopher and you are just a pleb. It's not so simple.

For example, I'll try to enlighten you. If a train is going down track and it looks like it's gonna hit 5 people, would you pull a switch that would switch the tracks to make it so that the train only hits 1 person? Alternatively would you push a fat person off a cliff if it meant saving 5 skinny people?
See it's not so easy.

I hope my philosophy babble didn't confuse you.

Stupid captcha. It's no problem anyway though.
No. Arrogance is for the weak. I am above them.
The inner machinations of my mind are an enigma.

What is up with PoMos throwing rationality in the trash then trying to do something? Maybe I'm not understanding.

>>16450750
Negative utilitarianism justifies blowing up the train then nuking the planet. No more suffering bitches.
