Got in a ridiculous argument on Reddit about the energy usage of NFTs.
Them: "what if there was an elevator going up and down perpetually even if nobody was using it, you wouldn't calculate a per-user cost for that"
Me: "Uhhh, I absolutely would"
Them: "Yeah, well, you wouldn't be *mean* about it"
@hyperlinkyourheart Honestly, I'd ask "why the heck are you doing that??"
(I mean, paternosters went out of fashion for reasons...)
@anke That would be my first question as well! I couldn't believe the analogy they chose was even more absurd than the reality they were arguing for. Yeah, "what if" that was happening? You'd suggest maybe doing elevators a better way, right??
