  • We are decaying. Nurgle would be proud.

  • I was about to pick yes, but reading the description, no, so far as morality goes life is going backwards. We are advancing in many fields, but aside from a few companies like Nintendo, very few are actually giving you your money's worth- nowadays most companies are ripping off the general population. The only improvement that exists is in rights for gays and women, but aside from that most people are becoming more and more self centered. Not saying we should switch from capitalism to socialism, but we need to knock a bunch of the big companies down a notch. The more people in a company, the worse the products.

  • Yep, social and moral decay, intellectual decay. You name it.

  • I feel we recently passed the peak of the enlightenment mountain. I believe it's going to start it's downhill trek soon enough. It was a good run guys. We managed to create complex religions, shun them with complex theories, shun those, and so on. We've caused a mass extinction. We littered the world with our trash. We defaced mountains. We polluted forests. We polluted oceans. Hell, we even polluted space. Humanity, the quickest reset button ever. At least our legacy will be carried on in the very-hard-to-deteriorate plastic bags that're gonna be drifting in the wind for eons to come. At least we made Facebook, the wheel, and oatmeal. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • It is rotating as it always was.

  • We are wasteful and destructive in our habits.

@Donderpants Google Apple and MS are big companies with lots of workers ... Their products must be really lousy.

You know I wouldnt say its moving backwards, so much as its just flattening out.

Of course the world is moving forward. Its moving at 18.5 miles per second in an elliptical pattern. ;)

Yep. They are. Pretty much the same products for higher prices. Google is just another search engine, Apple isn't the only one to make touch screens, they just got lucky that all the app developers chose them. Microsoft? I guess they made Microsoft word and Xbox, but aside from that, yep, they make rubbish products for how much it costs. All of those companies had the good luck to be the one which got noticed. Right place, right time, not better products.

@58539672 Turn around. Is that clockwise or counter clockwise? Are you looking at it from above or below its center? Which way is up?
