Do The Math – The Story Of The Atari Jaguar…


Date: September 30, 2017

01) Do The Math – The Story Of The Atari Jaguar

“The Atari Jaguar was marketed as the world’s first 64 bit console. Released at a time when the media and many consumers were obsessed with bits, The Jaguar it seemed, was destined for success and Atari had big plans for it – even a VR headset. But instead of bringing Atari roaring back to the mountain top, the Jaguar was a commercial failure and some critics doubted if it was even really a 64 bit system. Today we’re going to look at how a console Atari thought would make it king again ended up being its last released console (as of Sept 2017). This is the story of The Atari Jaguar.”

01) Jordan Peterson shows you an old German Propaganda Film

“In this lecture, he provides details about trait conscientiousness, the best predictor of life success after intelligence (particularly among managers, administrators and students).
Sounds good? But conscientiousness is partly composed of aspect orderliness, along with industriousness, and orderliness is associated both with disgust and with authoritarianism (particularly among those low in openness to experience).
Hitler and the Jews? The Holocaust? Orderliness and disgust sensitivity gone mad.”
