Notes From an Apocalypse

Mine also shows up indistinguished (I've noticed this a few other places on the site. And sometimes it is distinguished, but the line spacing is cramped). Firefox 54.0, Linux Mint 18.2

Lesswrong 2016 Survey

Oh right, I forgot this part. I have taken the survey (like two weeks ago)

Namecoin is an attempt to use a blockchain to implement a decentralized DNS. (It also has an associated cryptocurrency, but that's not the important part.)

I actually have a list of about ten of these, which I will happily make available on request (i.e. I’ll write another discussion post about them if people are interested) but I don’t want the whole discussion of this post to be about this one single issue, which it was when I tried the content of the post out on my friend. This is about the cryonics strategy-space only, not the living-forever strategy space, which is much bigger

I would like that, I am far more interested in the general live forever space.

Huh, same here, it was much easier than I expected. Elsewhere in the comments, buybuydandavis noted a distinction between 'hearing' and 'saying', and I think that's what's going on here, for me it least. I say what I'm counting, but mostly hear what I'm reading.

I can't read while listening to someone, so at least somewhat different things are going on between us.

Mental Subvocalization --"Saying" Words In Your Mind As You Read

My single datapoint says no. I almost always subvocalize, but get quite vivid pictures while reading.
