The working definition we used in several social science classes for fact was "a statement that is widely accepted as true."


A couple things with this:


1) Widely accepted as true does not mean true.  Thus the evolution of facts over time.


2) The perception of what is widely accepted as true depends on who you ask and who you talk to.  This, I think, is fundamental to why conflicting "facts" are brought up in debates, especially political debates.  For example, in the US, the far right talks to a very very small group of people with a very limited and similar worldview.  In that world, everything anyone believes is a fact because everything is widely accepted as true because everything believes the same thing. Wider polling relies on talking to enough people of varying race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and political persuasion to try and actually see what people believe.  Because facts held the extremes, whether conservative or liberal, rarely hold up as facts to the broader public.

Not all statistics are bullshit, but that pie chart probably is.  Hopefully some succinct gems... Random pauses are due to noise outside my apartment. Tried to keep things together so it wasn't an issue. I forgot to edit it out sorry!

And as I've thought about it, there have been many others that I've started and quit because my biggest thing is not fucking up the amazing things I'm remixing.

Who has been in a creative slump? I've been in a creative slump.


I write. I take pictures.  I edit video.  I do other things, but prefer not to do them on command, but may be able to compromise.


So. PLEASE challenge me.
