What are /qa/'s beliefs surrounding growing humans from artificial wombs, or potentially even tubes? As the population of the earth thins, many countries have come to a point where a large portion of population replacement comes from immigration. However, there seems to be a trend among developed and advance nations that birthrates fall below replacement level. Potentially this balances itself out in the future, but with all the current societal problems that come with birthrates falling below replacement it's clear that if all countries were developed and came to face the same issue there'd be major issues worldwide. With that said it seems like in an eventual fully developed earth scenario something's going to have to happen to solve this, and artificial wombs seem like a pretty good way to bump up societies to replacement levels.

Of course, one of the first things one must contend with if we have the power to artificially create babies is: Assuming we have the power to determine certain genetic characteristics of the babies, should we keep what genetic traits those babies have random or allow people to choose? Potentially, maybe even settle on an optimized "ideal", but that brings with it issues related to integrating the people in with a society full of non-grown babies, not to mention the massive issues with selecting said ideal, so I consider this one the least viable. In my opinion, when it comes to babies people should be able to choose the traits of their grown babies since leaving it up to random chance potentially allows the babies to be born with birth defects or disabilities. And, if there was the ability to avoid having a messed up baby brought into the world with extra hurdles because of failing a human-made genetic lottery, it puts the moral responsibility for that suffering onto the scientists that didn't allow for trait selection. So if the ability for one to avoid deformity/disability is there, it should theoretically be taken.

Aside from that, what other moral quandaries does /qa/ see with growing humans? The one other I can think of at the moment is with how many of the people that don't have kids now don't because they'd rather be doing other things than raising kids. So if the world were to be brought up to replacement levels through artificial wombs, who would take care of the babies? For me, I think the simplest solution to that would just be making a full-time parenting/raising job that people could do for the grPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Even if it does become necessary, a government that forces its citizens to have (or not have) children is a totalitarian one. It's an extreme level of interference in the lives of the people. What your vision would lead to is likely government-run boarding schools where all the orphans live. The school system is already the instrument by which the government exerts control over the child rearing process, so it would make sense that it gets expanded in this scenario to encompass the new realities. And if the government is getting that hands-on about ensuring productive future workers, I can see a gradual shift towards all parents placing their kids in these schools until the idea of parents raising children on their own becomes completely foreign. But that's just my fun little dystopia idea.

As for disabilities, I don't even think it's just a social justice thing, it's just a matter of subjective morality. There are disabled people living much more fulfilling lives than I'm living and there have been ones who contributed more to society than I do. Why then is it right to refuse them life on the sole basis of their disability? And even if we do, at what point is it acceptable to take action to prevent disabilities? Should we shoot handicapped people? Smother disabled infants? Abort disabled fetuses? Refuse implantation of fertilized eggs that will grow to have disabilities? Reject the use of DNA that leads to disabilities? Different people will have different answers. You and I might see it the same way, but that doesn't make our moral viewpoint objective. That's why you shouldn't make laws on moral basis.

I think somewhere along the line my idea was misinterpreted.
>a government that forces its citizens to have (or not have) children is a totalitarian one
My proposal wasn't the government forcing its citizens to have children or not have them, but rather having human growing facilities that have people employed by the government to take care of the kids grown to keep the population at replacement levels. I think that the current school system could still work under these conditions since making the facilities do everything would be a bit too much to ask of its caretakers. But yeah, the idea of parents taking care of their own kids might become foreign to people if they rely too much on the caretaking facilities and those that grew up in them probably would understand it to be the norm. Ideally, in a society where free expression is valued the government wouldn't interfere too much in their upbringing, but that may be a bit naive assuming we give them the control to do so.

When it comes to the disability issue, my point is more about if we have the ability to prevent disabilities by altering their genes in some way. At that point the question isn't about deny life to people based on disability, but rather denying a normal life to those we know without treatment would otherwise be disabled. Is there really moral justification for that?

Was actually reading about this just the other day.
One of my favorite modern writers argues that legislating a problem away even with force just doesn't work anyways, and that there's even historical precedent for it failing to do so.

There's a level of subjectivity to it but you've kinda got the idea. You subjectively determine the curves you want to lie on and then follow the curve to determine shows that lie on your quality curve. My thoughts on finding the most general applicable quality curve is that stories that draw too much from the super natural and existential drama, without fully commiting to it are "bad". You could call this the chuuni zone, it's where the delusions of grandeur and bad character writing intersect. And you can identify this in the stories themselves as plot points that jump too much between the realm of Mythology and the lower realm of Legend; they focus too much on gods and heros battling in the average persons life. An easy example is most isekai; You start in the realm of Legend, some salary man or neet gets killed in a freak accident, and then immediately jump to the realm of Mythology, the neet now has god-like powers in another world and begins to reshape said world. Most isekai is trashy because it jumps over intermediary realms; or in terms of the graph it lies in specific regions of the supernatural-exestensial drama space. This isn't to say good stories can't live in this region though, just that it's harder to write good stories in the region.

I wasn't thinking of the terms sorta flip-flopped, then. The mundane-supernatural divide refers more to the setting and the interpersonal-existensial referring more to the narrative. Maybe it needs to be a 3D space that accounts for characters, setting, and narrative. But in the discussion of realms I'm not sure the characters are that relevant. The realm of Myth is supernatural and deal with existential questions. The realm of Folklore is supernatural and deals with moral questions. The realm of Legend is supernatural and focuses characters. The realm of Reality deals with the mundane events and focuses on characters.

>How do we determine quality from this though?
I reckon it's orthogonal and I wouldn't even try. Reason is it's all in the execution.

File:[SubsPlease] Lv1 Maou to O….jpg (328.26 KB,1920x1080)

Lv1 Maou had an odd sort of mundane down-to-earth feeling, where Fred the cleric becomes a bureaucrat but even in his post-adventuring days is still able to effortlessly nuke Ganma's walls without needing to whip out any special moves or transformations. He just goes and does it, no speeches or anything. Leo stands parallel as the leader of a breakaway ~something~ and is also able to clear the forest in the same manner. They're in a league of their own, they're powerful in more than one way, but they're not kings or emperors. It's got just the right scale. The same goes for Max's and Maou's escalating sports matches, it's silly but it shows they're still damn strong.

I think that's important because it shows that these people are not a joke and don't stereotypically hold back either, they know what they're doing and so should Max. It provides a nice contrast, and it makes sense that if anything would've gotten him out of his slump it'd be going out and proving his worth in a fight once more. So, although I think the serious and action parts had their place and moments like Maou going out to fight just to get Max motivated I liked quite a bit, it REALLY didn't need to spend close to four episodes on the fight, and the flashbacks were indeed kinda pointless (especially the ones focusing on Yulia, since she wasn't present at all).

Probably the only one I'm going to vaguely remember.

>>>/jp/61377
>Basically just reset everything to the status quo
Hard disagree. The minister was ousted, Fred took his place, Leo became mayor of the now integrated Ganma province, and Max fixed his public image. It's not a reset, and it's much more of a resolution than your regular open ending.

That's a nice write-up. It's true that there was some good development, but I still feel that it failed to focus properly on its strengths. The unmotivated hero coached by a reincarnated former enemy and a relationship beginning to blossom was really nice. Well, I think I already said this stuff already. I just didn't feel invested in all the politics and fighting.

>>115006
I didn't watch much, but I think a lot of people overlooked the vending machine show and dismissed it as a shallow gimmick. It has good characters, although they are able to insinuate a bit too much from the isekai'd vending machine guy's preset vending machine stock phrases. It doesn't feel like he's overpowered, but simply knowledgeable and using the tools available to him.
His obsessive level of knowledge of real life vending machines allows him to morph into the right machine for the situation which is something I found far more interesting than the usual isekai stuff.
Also it's getting a season two!

I've never understood why so many independent creators, particularly Western ones, use the artistic freedom being an indie provides to create imitations of corporate commercial media they grew up with.

I love the way in which the world of magic is presented in this anime. There's not really much power scaling shounen stuff that typically accompanies the setting and neither Chise nor Elias are so powerful that they aren't beholden to the rules of the world. It allows the world feel so much more vast because of how much out there is on the same footing as the main cast instead of only a select few being even capable of harming them. It also makes the tension feel more real in that the threats of the neighbors are in no way empty, and a mistake could cause irreparable harm. Take Ashen Eyes for instance, his presence makes any scene more tense from the fact that his whims are all that protect Chise.

I only took a course on it, but the evolution of styles, techniques, and trends is way more interesting than most of the old music itself. Gregorian chant isn't particularly fun to listen to, but I can still appreciate the contributions it made to music.

You can probably just download a textbook for it. It's not going to be as good as a course, but it'll still give you the basic foundation before moving into the specific parts that interest you.

Come to think of it, the first website I made(before I was a programmer) was about music theory and trying to make big bucks off of it. Would tell you the site, but I've forgotten it.

Gregorian chant is basically science. All the rules of what you can and can't do to create a perfectly crafted chant.

When you don't go outside it's easy to forget the basic hygiene you practice since much of the motivation for taking care of yourself can be perceived as a social thing. However some things are important to do even if you're not going outside for the sake of your long term health! Like brushing your teeth and flossing to keep them clean of plaque leads to healthier gums and reduced risk of brain disease! If you haven't brushed yet go do it!

What other health tips does /qa/ know to keep their body in peak condition?

When someone says "awesome" to bad news, they obviously mean the opposite and are just being funny. A statement like "The Room is the greatest movie of all time" is a bit more ambiguous, but you can still infer that they're probably joking.

The problems come in when you start using the general shape of irony to make statements that aren't actually ironic. You're intentionally muddying your point to give yourself an easy out; you're joking, unless people start agreeing with you, at which point your 'ironic' statement starts revealing itself more and more as sincere, although it's still phrased kind of jokingly, because you want to maintain a level of plausible deniability in case you say something people don't like. It's an okay-ish way of making yourself look good in an argument, I suppose, at least in the short term, but it's anathema to any actual communication; to sharing ideas with others and seeing how they respond to them.

I was thinking about this because I myself use real irony all the time. When I hear bad news I'll say "wonderful"; when someone tells me an embarrassing story I'll say "that rocks". But I have, to my knowledge, never used pseudo-irony, and I couldn't quite articulate why it bothered me until now.

Notto disu shitto agen....
Okay, so verbal irony is one of those odd human things where they say one thing but actually mean the opposite. You infer that it means the opposite of what it's literally saying via context, as you said, and often intonation is a big contributor. In something like socratic irony, the speaker pretends to be ignorant, but is actually knowledgeable and just feigns retardation to draw the other person out and rebuke them.
Sarcasm is specifically a form of negative language that overwhelmingly employs irony, but it's much more narrow in scope.

I know people don't like this kind of terminology, but this
>using the general shape of irony to make statements that aren't actually ironic
we can call post-irony. Why is it -post? Because it intentionally uses the cues that would normally mark something as ironic, while at the same time NOT meaning the opposite of what they're saying.
Irony is already often ambiguous, because you have to figure out if it matches the context or not, and so people with weaker social skills like autists tend to miss the point. But post-irony is designed to be ambiguous, everyone finds it harder to figure out, and that's on purpose. That's the term you're looking for.

>When people say they're sick of irony, what they are referring to is how some communities get to the point where it seems they lose the ability to find anything fun in its own right, instead getting all their laughs via their disdain of how other people do. It's basically the evolution of cringe culture, in which people got entertainment from more directly mocking other people's forms of entertainment.
I think this is accurate, and I'd go a step further and say that a lot of the time, once it goes on long enough, communities end up getting mad at their own caricature of their "opponent" group rather than anything that group actually say or does.

I always think of the 'le' meme, which existed in [s4s] ironic form for significantly longer than it did reddit sincerity.

On topic sager...
Anyways yeah, [s4s] is weird when it comes to meme culture, like they'll hold onto a meme for so long.
Like "le jack ruselel"

It seems like CR decided to jump on the AI bandwagon by publishing a straight MTL that nobody bothered to look over. Probably their worst output since Gab Dropout, though in a completely different direction.

Obviously companies are itching to fire all their translators, but how good does the tech need to come before that becomes viable?

>Better than 0 translation at all
Not when it actually is making stuff up and passing it off as a translation or is so low-quality that it ruins the experience.

You could get away with "Mr. Yuzuki" since that's the equivalent title structure teachers get in English (though -sensei is familiar enough that leaving it is fine), but "Sir" is flat-out wrong. He's not a knight.

The extent to which accurate translation, especially between languages as different as Japanese and English, is reliant on context (eg. previously-established information, what is shown on screen, cultural references, etc.) makes me think it is effectively impossible, short of the development of something close to a Turing-test capable AI. There will certainly be improvements, likely to the extent that it will provide a tolerable-enough experience when there is no other choice (such as with untranslated VNs), but I highly doubt it will reach the level of quality expected of a paid product in the foreseeable future.

Maybe they're already using it on all shows and the one guy fixing the output only had time for more popular shows.

I was just thinking that if it were possible CR would definetly jump on top of AI dubbing
