Turns out posting Discord screenshots is way easier than writing. We’re about to explore new depths in shitposting around here.

      I think you have the right idea when you say our salvation as a species is to be as boring as possible, so the sapes won’t want our food even if it’s free (as in Denmark). It’s like being Amish, except you boil off your party girls to other countries by having no parties to go to.

    police drawing blood is an endrun around drivers who refuse a breathalyzer at the scene of a suspected DUI. In times before police were allowed to draw blood, a driver who refused had to be taken to a hospital, by which time their BAC might have dropped below the limit, thus saving their hides from a DUI conviction. Yet another nail in the 4th Amendments ongoing crucifixion

    as recently as 2013 in Missouri v. McNeely, “the United States Supreme Court ruled that police must generally obtain a warrant before subjecting a drunken-driving suspect to a blood test, and that the natural metabolism of blood alcohol does not establish a per se exigency that would justify a blood draw without consent.” https://infogalactic.com/info/Missouri_v._McNeely

      Okay, that makes sense. So it’s still a privacy violation for convenience of law enforcement, because the spirit of taking someone to a hospital is the same, but impractical. So it’s enabling a freedom-violating policy already in practice which, if we’re being honest, is probably necessary because police are rarely wrong about drunk drivers and they need catching. So this is a good example of the Justice = Morality/Privacy tradeoff.
