That makes sense. I guess I'm mostly reacting to the last sentence, which adds a moral aspect.
(I'm also not 100% sure how much the last sentence is a joke, or deliberate exaggeration?)
lest we see anyone waver in their moral resolution to internalize most externalities.
If I find out that internalizing externalities is harmful, I don't want to do it! It might be harmful to moralize this, in case it makes it harder to change our minds?
I'm planning to participate, if I can find some folks to work together in person!

What is this trick? The video seems to be gone.
I think this might conflate "science" with something like "statistics". It's possible to study things like personal experience, just harder at scale.
The Hollywood-scientist example illustrates this, I think. Dr. Physicist finds something that wildly conflicts with her current understanding of the world, and would be hard to put a number on, so she concludes that it can't and shouldn't be reasoned about using the scientific method.
I don't get the punchline. Do they plan to capture and use the AGI rather than killing it? Spread more zombie plague, for some reason? Did they start it in the first place? Does the briefcase have vaccines in it?
Good solution IMO, and I would recommend keeping the "Repost" in the title. It doesn't cost much.
