GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 31st July at noon SLT: The Future of War!

What will we kill ourselves and our enemies about in the future?  If we don’t fight over oil what will we fight over?  Land on other planets, water, sunlight, air?  New religions?

And how will we fight?  We won’t send millions of soldiers to the trenches anymore.  Maybe we will send robotic poisonous mosquitoes.  Or swarms of drones.  Maybe all fighting will be done by robots on other planets.  Or maybe our minds will be attacked by nanobots.  Or will we be destroyed by bioweapons? 

Will war ever stop?  Will aliens in a few million years find 2 tribes of drones still killing each other on an Earth where all organic life has died?

Bring your kids!  Fun for the whole family!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak – how close are we to a nuclear war? Join the discussion on Saturday July 27th at 12pm SLT

Nowadays most of us are less worried about nuclear weapons than we were in the last century.  But is that reasonable?  The danger is still there.  Any conventional war could become a nuclear war.  As nuclear weapons spread, more and more countries could start a nuclear war.  

Would it be possible for terrorists to start one, either by making nuclear weapons or by hacking into command codes?  Could a nuclear war start by sheer accident?

Where will this happen?  What are the danger areas?  And what will happen in the aftermath?  Will we completely destroy the planet, or will the nuking stop after the first 10 or so?

Would we be safer if all countries had nukes, or if none did?  Are there ways to stop this madness?  Come and discuss total annihilation.  Bring your lead radiation suit.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak – Will there always be war? Saturday October 15th 12pm SLT

Why are we always at war somewhere on Earth?  Is it something in human nature that cannot be changed?  Will we always see wars, however much our world changes?  If we colonize other planets will those planets go to war?  Are there powers on Earth that profit from war and will always make sure that there is perpetual war?

Or do you think that global peace is in our future?  Could peace develop gradually until no one can imagine a world where there are wars?  What would a world without any war look like?

Everyone thinks that war is madness.  But how can we stop war?  Is there anything we can do?  Or do you think the drawbacks of global peace would be greater than the costs of war?

Bring your peace pipes to the discussion at GeekSpeak.  IM Kathen Ohtobide if you need a teleport.

Take Part in Combat; Show Your Brutal Side- Piers Diesel Reporting...

Real life is rarely on the verge of mortal combat. Even when war takes place, most just watch it on television. No one joins the army. This leaves a void in many. The desire for all-out fights never gets fulfilled. The monotony of life takes over us and the pent-up aggression begins to show up as defects in our personalities. This may explain some weird behavior in real life.
But thanks to Second Life, we have a few places where we can release our pent-up emotions. These places let you indulge in your brutal fantasies at no cost to real life.

Here is a list:
