FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

sillybilly Re: On the other hand... (687 comments)

In fact one way to guarantee the stability of the dollar is by eliminating paper money, or chipped money and the like (where the chip can be rigged to fail at some catastrophic zero day and stop being accepted by vending machines and checkout lines), and back it with value in person, or in presence, as in making metal coin one dollars that carry within themselves intrinsic value in the metal itself. The 5c nickel and 1 cent copper plated zinc bulk are already at their limits or sometimes containing more intrinsic metal value than their face value. In essence, they should allow melting down of coinage by law, to recover the intrinsically carried value, and thus guaranteeing currency stability and lack of inflation. Even if you have paper money for $100 bills, the real backing of it would come from the ability to exchange it for coinage, for metal $1 coins, $5 coins, even $20 coins, which, of course carry at least say $15 of metal value with a $20 face value, so the melting down of it is not worth it, but the intrinsically carried metal value would guarantee that a $20 would never fall in absolute value under $15. In effect stopping inflation completely, or at least controlling the rate to something very slow over decades, as the mint issues new metal coins of lesser value (as they switched from all copper cents to zinc bulk/copper plate cents) and it flushes out slowly over a period of 20-50 years from the currency circulation. With such a thing people would be able to keep tangible wealth and value in their homes, or dug away in their back yards, instead of being vulnerable to Da Man pulling the rug out under them with a currency crash. Currency crashes were very common at the end of WWII, where a lot of currencies became worthless and were swept up on the streets, reaching denominations of 100 trillion within a matter of months, and even since then some countries, like Italy or Turkey, throughout the latter half of the 20th century had double digit yearly inflations, where you could not store wealth in money stuffed away in your pillows, and instead, in Turkey, there was a habit to get paid from your job, buy your groceries and present needs, then sink the leftover money into building a house, continuously little by little over a period of 20-30 years, just to preserve value, because if you kept it on your hands for months, it would drop to half its worth, as in you could buy half as much bread or eggs on it as you could a few months before then. Even these days, a recent major crash was the Z$, Zimbabwe dollar, where the monetary policy of the dictator was to not collect taxes, just keep printing paper money, and he had trouble getting ATM machines that would handle the 100 trillion Z$ denomination zeros and not crap out on him. A stable currency is essential to a decent life, but the dollar, with its gold backing removed, is very vulnerable to an intentional crash by those betting against it, taking up short positions in it, where they get it today, and will have to pay it back tomorrow when it's worth nothing. A metal backed currency, even if not gold, because there isn't enough gold around, but silver, platinum, even nickel(stainless steel), cobalt(batteries, cutting tools), samarium, gadolinium, neodynium (used in magnets and lasers), cerium (used in gas lighting mantles), indium(used in transparent conductive screens), tellurium (used in CdTe photocells or rewritable cds), or anything rare but of good technological value, could be used, and even issuing a $50 face value coin that has an intrinsic metal value of a combination silver, platinum, neodynium, indium mix of only $5, (clad in copper-nickel by plating them sintering/semimelting the surface, to protect from unknown health hazards of some rare earths or things like Niobium overexposure) would be a good idea, because it would guarantee some kind of protection against crashes of its value going to zero, like paper money swept up on the streets at the end of WWII, so even if you're left with $5 when you had 50 that's better than absolutely nothing.

Chip currencies are bullshit. You cannot trust chips. It's bad enough you have to use them in your cars, computers, cellphones, but where it matters hard core, you should keep away from chips. Such as money. How can a chip guarantee anything, when in fact it's a source of failure (as in it's a good piece of money that traceably did come from the mint or printing office, yet the chip decided to go bezerk in it), a source of counterfeiting security and encryption issues, etc.

Those who seek destabilizing the dollar, and removing hard core tangible in your hand backing of value in it, are only seeking to make money off of the mayhem that ensues, and hopefully pegging the blame on some other poor squirrel trying to get a nut, while they stuff their own pockets and run with the easy money they did not have to work for. It's like people have the right to gamble, and win, or even find money on the street on the ground, for free, but it's not a gamble when you conspire to corrupt and fuck the system, it's not the same situation of free money falling into your lap and your pocket.

sillybilly Re: On the other hand... (687 comments)

Yeah well who wants to live in a metropolis like that.

By the way private property is essential to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but in a yeoman farmer, small property owner way, where everyone owns the home they live in, can sustain themselves and survive in absence of an economy or jobs on the food they grow (meaning property taxes are low), and that would be proper balance, between total communism where you cannot own anything, and absolute monarchy or despotism where the top dog, one guy, or a few nobles, own everything and the common bulk of the population is forbidden from owning private property, instead they are slaves or serfs or whatever you want to call them, they themselves are private property of either the communist state, or the absolute monarch and his nobles. In an ideal world everyone would own their home and a small patch of land enough to sustain himself with self grown food, housing prices would be low, and life would be relatively stress free without mandatory bills, like sewer bills, or Obamacare-like mandatory health insurance purchases irregardless of the price charged, irregardless of the insurance companies right to go bankrupt and out of business after you paid them all those premiums for years. And the government pays into these private motherfuckers pockets from the tax treasury that's already beyond empty in your name and will blame you for the internal economic collapse of the country. Fuck Obamacare. Fuck the centralized private property ownership of all housing by mega-banks, which then rape everyone in the ass with interest, which you can corruptly deduct from your taxes, and keep you in a perpetual refinance situation, because, if you want to pay your mortgage, you need a job, if you want a job, you need a car, and good luck finding a car without remote controlled chips in them that die on command, so you keep refinancing your home trying to get new cars. Or just keep refinancing it to pay off the credit cards you used to feed yourself when Da Man laid you off and kept you there, just long enough to wind the mortgage clock back to zero, and make you start over, after 20 years of paying mortgage, back to zero, at age 50, and you only have to pay another 30-40 years, if you live that long. What the fuck is with these insane housing costs? How did everyone lose touch with reality? The greater fool theory. It does not matter if I pay 200 million dollars for this stupid 2 bedroom hole in the wall shack about to collapse, because I can resell it for 210 million dollars to the next guy. Everybody is insane. Everybody is guilty of driving up housing cost, starting with the scumbag real estate agents who don't really do any work, or contribute to society to justify some of the 6 figure incomes they make. To live well, everyone needs a lowered cost of living. And some sort of right to grow their own food and not be dependent on grocery stores, or government welfare aid, in absence of a job. The top concern or daily cost of a person should be putting the food on the table, the daily bread, every day, 2nd transportation to acquire that food, 3rd clothing once every 10 years or so, and 4th housing, once in a lifetime. The top cost in housing should be the land value, not the house erected on it, because of the value it represents in ability to grow your own food on it. But the corrupt contractor - local govt building permit system, that makes a killing on houses made of cardboard, or wood, made to topple in less than a lifetime, yet charge 400,000 for such a house on top of the land value, which is close to the total earnings in a lifetime to some people, and on top of that comes food, transport, everything else, is also bullshit. It's all in the name of your safety, the building code inspector comes out to inspect your homes and issues penalties, tickets to you, to protect you from yourself. Fuck the building code enforcement agencies. Fuck the sewer systems that won't let you have an outhouse and recycle your own shit as fertilizer to your own garden, keeping your diseases put, in one place, instead of sending the diseases you poop out down the sewer system into the rivers and lakes and oceans that everybody else gets their water and food from. Fuck overcrowded cities that are breeding grounds for diseases and misery and poverty, because the bills are high, and ability to obtain income is low, or even ability to put food on the table is low.
Hitler chases Da Man away, Da Man ended up mostly in the US, where the first thing they did was violate the principle of separation of church and state, the very reason the Pilgrims came to the US in the first place, the 1st Amendment seeking freedom of religion rights, and they put "In God We Trust" on the dollar bill in the 1950's (having already put it on the cent coins in the early 1900's). Karl Wojtila, or Pope John Paul the 2nd fought on the other front, when the commies banned religion, and built a churchless city, where he held open air public masses regardless, defying the commies. The proper balance is not no religion, or state enforced religion, but freedom of religion which is everyone's private matter, and does not belong into the common secular life. Up to the 50's the main motto of the US was "E Pluribus Unum" And this includes Zen Buddhist godless religions. Or you wanna put in Buddha we trust on the money? The 2nd thing they did was remove the backing of the US dollar by gold. That meant the dollar was meant to be fucked, and the economy is meant to be crashed on purpose. They are getting there pretty well. The reason why the dollar needs to be fucked and the economy crashed is to eliminate this whole mass of freedom loving mofos that ended up in the US, and reinstitute the Old World Order of royalty and nobility throughout the world, nobles having guaranteed privilege, competition free survival and prosperity to their offsprings. Why should you have your kids compete head to head with some low life mofos, when you can have them inherit nobility titles from you? And they can own and control everything that goes down in the world. Such as the newly arising intellectual property control of all food. Up until now you could grow a food crop, and the grain seeds you harvested you could eat, or resow, freely. Food was material property in the sense that if you had specific grains in your pocket, you most likely owned those, and if you swallowed them, you owned them as material private property, and there was no intellectual property attached to any kind of life or any kind of food. In fact if you bought any specific breed of animal, by having that specimen you had the right to breed and own the offsprings too. Now with Monsanto's genetically modified technologies we are entering into a new era where people don't only materially own lifeforms, but they own intellectual property in them, and can sue any farmer who resows such plants, or even has their plants cross pollinated by accident from a neighbors lot, for intellectual property violations. What the fuck? Life cannot be owned in an intellectual property way, life is meant to have the right to reproduce and live. Owning lifeforms materially is a necessity to survival, in that most food is life, and you have to be able to own as private property what went down into your stomach. But there is no necessity to attach intellectual property to life forms, and then hog it and take over all of that intellectual property by some centralized bank or centralized power structure like a despot or monarch, and rape everyone in the ass with fees over access to that property. It's hard to see small private property owners, yeoman farmers, where the bulk of the population owns most property, 99% owns at least 50% of all property, as opposed to some 0.1% nobility of the population owning and hogging everything, and 99.9% a slave or serf to them. Good life is not possible without private property, but extremes of communism where nobody is allowed to own anything, or the Old World Order royalty and nobility where nobody is allowed to own anything, except some minor 0.1%, are horrible abuses regarding private property. Jefferson envisioned a democracy of self reliant yeoman farmers, and they distrusted city dwellers slaves to someone throwing them a bone of a job, and controlling them in an economically exploitable and vulnerable situation, where their vote is pretty much owned by their employer, or whoever controls their putting the daily bread on the table. These days we have 99% of the population urbanized, food prices kept artificially very low with high property taxes on small farms (big farms over 10 acres can get special tax treatment, and because of that, can keep their food prices low, we're talking the yeoman farmer who cannot afford a big farm), and all farmers bankrupt. Let alone harassed by Monsanto over intellectual property violations when it comes to their nonfertile seeds. Fuck Monsanto. They already sell you seeds with some extra productivity or disease resistance benefit, at the cost of those seeds not being fertile. They already got you fucked in the ass. Why do they need to also drag you to court over intellectual property attached to those seeds? They are already walking dead life. Because they know self reliance, self sufficiency, and freedom from abuse from Da Man depend on the food supply above everything else. And we cannot allow losing control, because then, if others take over power, then they might do abuses like the Romans. And you can see their point too. But still, who likes to live like a slave? Or a quasi slave? It's like in order to protect the world from abuses of power and maintain control, fight against losing control, they commit the same power abuses they are trying to protect the world from. And things like violating basic principles of separation of church and state, or even things like setting the dollar afloat, removing its being backed by some hard core value, like precious metals of gold, silver, etc, you know where that's heading? It's done to send it into a price fluctuation, instability, where there is easy money to be made on the arbitrage that develops, that in essence, sucks the value out of the rest of the economy, out of other people's work, and puts it into your own pockets, and even sending it into a total crash, just to fuck these freedom loving rebellious bunch of Europeans that ended up in America, that need to be exterminated genetically because throughout the centuries of Old World Order there they and their descendants were always a source of trouble, so the US is purposely sent toward a crash by purchasing up all businesses or backbones of economy, shutting them down, and relocating them to China or Bangladesh or at least Mexico, and when the crash of the dollar happens, and the starving begins, we'll do it in a way where we can blame one of them for the whole thing, and call him a legend, when he's forced to just act like a squirrel trying to get a nut for himself, taking care of his own business.

The Future of Stamps

sillybilly Re:No postmark date? (130 comments)

No kidding. There is a phrase: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
Regular stamps can be a standard among different people, can be transferred and resold, and maintain anonymity in a sense (as it is possible to send letters from fake addresses, if you really have to, if you worry that Da Man is tracking your mail and won't deliver anything from you, you can always use a pseudonym or a fake from mailing address, and the post office job is to deliver it to the destination address, and as long as there is such a thing as undeliverable mail, or destination address not found, or the addressee no longer lives there, etc, and the mail having to be returned to the originator (which, btw, at my present address the post office refuses to do to all my downstairs neighbors that moved out, while at my previous address they were kind and accepted a return mail my neighbor marked up as I no longer lived there, and found me, and delivered it to my new address.) So the issue of undeliverable mail to the originator, or a fake originator address, should only arise if the mail has to be returned. But at least some degree of anonymity lets you send your rent to your landlord on time if that's what he specifies in the contract, that it be mailed. Imagine where the man, with unique stamps on every envelope, can selectively block people and fuck with them financially, such as not delivering their rent, and getting them evicted from their homes. Yes, there is a balance between the power of Da Man in charge controlling individuals, and the power of individuals, or liberties, anonymities, privacies of such individuals against Da Man in charge (such as in the old days they used to have to issue warrants to live up to the 4th amendment, these days that's no longer in vogue, as long as we can get some kind of witch hunt or terrorist hunt or whatever the latest scare, Ebola hunt justification for it). In everything in life, balance is the key, and extremes are not preferred. Digital, high tech, individually indentifiable stamps just give even more power into the hands of Da Man, who already has too much of it anyway, with simple things like cell phone tracking. Did you know you have to pull the battery from your cellphone if you don't wanna be tracked, or leave it on at home and go without it - there have been days like 4 years ago when I showed up at work having forgot my cellphone home, and everyone was scared, or acting weird, and they sent me home that day. I simply forgot, but it shows just how much people are assumed to have cell phones, and be trackable. Even without a cellphone each car with chips in it - meaning fuel injected, noncarburetted - is also trackable, but still, I somewhat respect one of my aunts who's high tech in other ways, but refuses to have a cellphone, instead all she has is a home phone, and in that, a cable modem land line, not the AT&T is back with a vengeance monopoly landline. "We The People" told AT&T back in the 70's to split up and compete against itself in the form of Baby Bells, and stop being an abusive monopoly of We The People, but AT&T is back, saying we piss on you, "We The People." And if things went right back in 1999, Microsoft would have ended up as a bunch of Baby Softs, and we'd have a better chance at a decent and nonabusive computing environment, but of course, with the fall of the Soviet Union, "We The People" and our "New World Order" you can read about on the dollar bill from 1800, or even today, on the opposite side of George Washington,we no longer stand a chance against the "Old World Order" of "We the King of England" and his nobility, that we fought so dearly against starting in 1776, then in 1812. They too, are soon back. With a vengeance. I mean they been around all the while, but not so obvious about their ways. And it's gonna be especially difficult to put up a fight if Obama kills the 2nd amendment, or even the 1st amendment. Btw, every time I enter a building which says on the door no firearms or weapons permitted on these premises, I feel like I'm entering the Old World Order domain, where only the privileged have the right to self defense, and carry weapons, such as cops, security guards, you know, the agents of Da Man.

FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

sillybilly Re: On the other hand... (687 comments)

The whole problem started with the design of USB, universal serial bus. They fucked up by not properly considering hardware/bios based backward compatibility with the previous technology, called the serial port, RS232C. As most USB 2 ports could go in slow USB 1.1 OHCI/UCHI(depending on manufacturer) and EHCI 2.0, (+ USB 3 now), all you needed was adding yet another way of using them, namely dumb RS232 protocol, where you can set the baud, parity, stop bits, etc, and use it similarly to a 3.5 mm to 9 pin adapter, having ground, rx, and tx. In fact you could have had a usb to 3.5 mm audio conector adapter running in RS232 mode. If that were properly provided in hardware by the chip itself, you wouldn't have such an issue over trying to get proper timing done under a capricious OS like modern non-realtime windows versions, inside a driver that deals with 20 ms lags when, if implemented in hardware, timing accuracies of 1 us would be piece of cake, accurate timing software that FTDI seems to excel in their chips and drivers, while others are still playing catchup. The USB stack is so complicated, that FTDI must have figured out a trick, or have some undocumented info, and the rest of the world still can't properly implement a USB to RS232 converter, even with billions invested. What a fuckup the USB design was.

Back in the days of good engineering, they pulled off color television backward compatibility with black and wide television. That was quite an engineering feat, but it respected the customer's invested wealth. Even in MS DOS and Win9x, even WinXP, you had respect for backward compatibility.

These days the vogue is intentionally created non-backward compatibility, and violating standards, so the company can screw the customers as much as possible, and achieve greater profit that way. You can see it in all the nonstandard ways DELL and HP and the like make their computer cases and motherboards, that cannot accept standard cases or standard motherboards, only custom ones from the same manufacturer, same with the various cell phone chargers and adapters, similarly some Radio shack custom batteries, let alone all other electronic device batteries, companies purposely want to fuck the customer over, or more like the powers that be that make these economic decisions purposely want to waste people's money with nonstandard designs in order to keep them poor, and down, and easier to control. Let alone intentional kill switch designs, like, did you know, that back in the 90's COM Activex objects all had a kill switch designed into them, by Microsoft, called the Phoenix bit, cuz they knew one day they had to kill the good stuff they sold you, remotely, just so it stops working and you're forced to go out and buy their latest garbage, with the latest remote kill switches, and these kill switches help them improve their profitability. When they pulled the Phoenix bit on me, that's when I stopped keeping step with computing technology, and went out of business as a programmer.

Fuck da Man and his bullshit ways of making money. Too bad when Bill Clinton went after Microsoft to reign in their abusive behavior as a monopoly, and declared them guilty, the Da Man on Wall Street dropped the stock market the biggest up to that point in history, as punishment for Bill Clinton for fucking with Da Man's ways of making money. Da Man's got everyone by the ballz, and he's fucking everyone over with no shame, in fact he is bored and wants to rebellious bitching, just so he can pinpoint where the hotspots are, who are threats to his total world domination plans. Such as extending the reaches of property to extents never seen before, such as perpetual copyright terms, on basic science facts, banning nondigital analog devices, or even books, to control all knowledge and keep everyone dumb, or blackmail everyone over it. People cannot live without property, but the reaches of intellectual property are very extreme, and going even more that way. Such as intellectually owning all foods produced in the world, through genetically modified, infertile seeds that only the manufacturer can supply, and owning the intellectual property license on such GM seeds. Monsanto's motto is that there shall be no food grown on the planet that they don't own intellectually speaking. Fuck Monsanto. Da Man's motto is that there shall be no information, no science, no technology, that he does not own and control and blackmail everyone over. It all starts with the cloud. And it's part of the reason why IBM is split up from being a vertically integrated company that does both hardware and software, because it's so fucking important to have standalone, intellectual property only software companies, otherwise integrated companies could sell just the hardware, and give the software that makes it work away for free with it, kinda like when you buy a flashlight, or a vaccuum cleaner, you get the manual with it almost for free, or can download it for free from the internet. It's true that software is often more work than the hardware, but I think this drive to prove to everyone that inellectual property, or just simply property, has a place in the world, is to then go extreme on it, and lock every bit of knowledge down as intellectual property, or every bit of physical property as rental property. Da Man loves to hog property. It's the only way he really knows how to make a living, convert every friggin thing into property, take it from everybody by force, then sell it back to them at a greatly inflated price. The issue on real estate and housing price crisis in the US, the outrageous housing cost and rent prices, which then drive up the rent-like you'll never pay it off mortgage prices (called the American dream of owning your own home and not have to pay rent or mortgage interest on it, that's all it is, a dream, because he makes sure only a few actually ever pay it off, everyone else is kept in a refinance hamsterwheel by remote killing the chips in their cars), is at the core of why the US is uncompetitive in the global marketplace, it's not human talent or ability, but Da Man having lost a sense of touch with reality, and still expecting to keep increasing rent yearly from $500 to pretty soon 700-800/mo, while cutting $25/hr union jobs to $8/hr minimum wage. And if someone grumbles, hisses and bitches loudly, that's good, he can easily find and control and keep down the trouble makers, analyze their DNA genetically, then find other people with similar DNA, and kill them all. In the name of his self interest.

Ever watch Hannibal Lecter eat brain, or even in Collateral Damage a guy getting fed a deadly snake? Now you're guilty of watching imaginary things as if you did them yourself. Pretty much all Hollywood would have to go to jail, for a whole lot of movies have sex and violence and blasts in them, I know, they are supposed to be things of the imagination, just like Manga cartoons. Why is it OK to watch a person getting gutted violently, but a post puberty sexually reproductive female (most manga girls have huge tits meaning they hit puberty and are sexually reproductive age) naked not? If anything they need to lock up all the biotech researchers that torture mice and frogs and rats and monkeys in labs, and set all the child porn addicts free, as long as they don't have a history of actually committing a sexual act with a child. A lot of them are probably recluses, and what do they do? Look at a manga cartoon image? Gimme a break.

IBM Pays GlobalFoundries $1.5 Billion To Shed Its Chip Division

sillybilly Re:so glad I sold my IBM stock when Rometty took o (84 comments)

It's not the CEO. If anything women are very materialistic, and the men bring back to the cave the wealth, and the women manage it and make life and death decisions over it, unless it's an easy life with overabundance, and then they go shopping to make themselves feel prettier, because they never ever feel pretty and attractive enough, even the hottest females on the planet, but when things are tight and resources very scarce, and there are hungry kids to feed, there is nothing better to let the women manage the finances, and the men concentrate on gathering it and military defense from others wanting to take it. But ultimately, even in a paternalistic society, behind every great man there is a woman pushing his buttons.

The real issue these days is that chips are just that friggin expensive to make, at the nanometer feature sizes, with UV laser etching, and dust free environments having to be maintained. That's what's dragging IBM profits down, the expense of making a top of the line chip these days. And you could get a lot of value out of those chips, or sell 10x smaller ones for half the cost, but the real fault in all this profit issue comes down the lazy software developers. Why do you need a multicore CPU with 4GB of RAM to come to read text on Slashdot without your browser quivering and collapsing to its knees under the flash and javascript instruction load? Remember Windows 95 software running circles around anything Slashdot-like running today in 4 GB of RAM with a 2GHz quad core CPU, and doing it in a mere 0.032 GB RAM 200 MHz single core CPU? It's all lazy software developers, or more like they are not lazy, but they like to create complicated things where they can hide perverted shit, the code is not transparent, or simple, so you can have these wars of deceit inside it, hacking and defending, fighting in a way, they enjoy a good boxing match which is not possible on simple, crystal clear code where it is impossible to hide shit or deceive. It's like they enjoy a good shitslinging party, and they assume 4GB or RAM available on a modern computer, simply to read basic text spruced up with ads and various javascript menu features, and companies like IBM pay for all this shitslinging entertainment when they can't keep their cost together and collapse as a company. IBM is one of the few computing companies left that are fully vertically integrated, meaning they can give you hardware and software both, so they can't point the finger and pass the blame on someone else, and they are US based and can bring home the manufacturing in a ware situation, and when they go out of business all the modern chip foundries will be in East Asia. Then what's stopping another Pearl Harbor when the Greater East Asian co-prosperity sphere got you by the balls, cuz all you can make in the US is a stupid Microchip, that won't run a military logistics inventory database server.

Scanning Embryos For Super-Intelligent Kids Is On the Horizon

sillybilly Re:Scarier still.... (366 comments)

Dude, genius is not breedable. You can breed relatively intelligent people, that follow the traits of their parents, but true, groundshaking genius, along the lines of Galileo, da Vinci, Newton, Euler, Leibnitz, Lagrange, Laplace, Gauss, Lavoisier, Maxwell, Einstein, Schroedinger, Dirac, etc,(I apologize to the ones left out) is rare, and it does not stay in the family, with some very rare exceptions like the Swiss Bernoulli family that had quite a few geniuses. The reason is that genius is not a built in genetic trait, but a haphazard decision of the resident mind control microorganisms, who are actually the geniuses, not the person. Usually they reward people based on behavior and internal thought processes, such as religious fervor, dedication to love and goodness and improvement of mankind, and there is no such thing as a genius genetics of humans, you can recognize smart people, or have expectations of intelligence or behavioral traits based on people you've met before and how they acted, behaved and were motivated, but genius is its own distinct category and nothing human even comes close to it. These parasites are the ones that used to reside in the biblical prophets and predict the world, but they gave up on that with Mohamed being the last prophet. They are also the ones creating the various religions of Greeks, Romans, Hindus, Buddhists, Incas, Aztecs, Native Americans, but sometimes they allow the persons to run free, without forced mind control, as in free will, to see what they do, and often come to realize what they were trying to accomplish was not working, such as the bloodthirsty human sacrifice religions around the world even after much scientific progress. But it's like only through God that takes up residence within you can you achieve anything great, and it's actually God doing it, not you, so you should not really take credit for it anyway in the first place.

Before taking up residence in humans, these bacteria and fungi and viri that coexist with each other in great genetic variability and think together, used to take up residence in other lifeforms, fish, bugs, reptiles, mammals, and it's like they are driving evolution, and created the dinosaur extinction because of cold blood, when they prefer warm blooded animals to reside in, they are more comfortable. For some stunning examples of ones still residing in insects, search youtube for mind control insect parasite fungi and bacteria, usually the fungi are most visible in their behavior, and see how they are smarter than the insects themselves, in fact, without them, and their intellect, insect societies might be impossible to control and organize.

Facebook and Apple Now Pay For Female Employees To Freeze Their Eggs

sillybilly Re: So... (248 comments)

This is the first step down the long road of humans evolving into alien queen like creatures 3 billion years from now. It starts with extrauteral egg rearing that only gets implanted for temporary key periods of immune system development and such that does require spending time in the uterus for now, but the mammalian female such as a human can continue unhindered with her career, while her baby is developing at a medical facility in a jar, and she pays visits, like takes a week off a month to reinsert the baby into her uterus, at least while it's small size and it's critical, but I'm guessing after month 4 or 5, or whatever the earliest premature births are that are for fetuses that able to make it on their own, the remainder of the development could be in an incubator of some sort, kind of like premature born babies are taken care of. So the real pregnancy lasts for say 4-5 months of 1 week vacation of keeping the baby inside the womb to get acclimated (i.e. uterus), and maybe some stressful ritual at the end of 9 or 10 months for the baby to start breathing coming out of the artificial womb, while the woman's body and bone structure never having to take a toll of adapting a gigantic sized baby, and I don't know how lactaction would work, that's a whole separate topic, but she could maintain her youthful health and appearance. It's gonna be big money for rich people and feminist career women, maybe even rich lesbian couples that get sperm donors. These lesbian couples might be the way to where all humans end up female and they lose the males and the benefit of genetic variability that sexual reproduction brings about, along the lines of the problems of the sexlife of the banana, and how earthworms prefer mating with sex partners, but in absence of an opposite sex, they are able to self-inseminate, they are all hermaphrodites. This will also mean at first artificial technology wombs, but if the future becomes hell to where such stability and availability of secure technological locations can be guaranteed, such as in war times, and natural disasters, etc, genetically engineered ovipositors can seek out other warm blooded lifeforms, such as birds, or mammals, and mammals including non-evolved humans that stay the same as present day humans, and use them as an artificial womb. Yay, the wonders of biotech of the future and the drive for survival bringing about ripped human ribcages, 3 billion years from now. Maybe sooner. After all 3 billions years is a huge amount of time, life has been around on this planet for only 4 billion years, out of which the first 3 billion were all single celled organisms, maybe fungi too, as far as we can tell, and only in the last 1 billion years have multicellular organism appeared on the scene, and only 600 million years ago dinosaurs, insects and flowering plants that depend on each other, and only 7 million years ago human like apes, and only 200,000 years ago the common ancestors of all humans that roam this planet in overabundance. So 7 million or 0.2 million years for humans so far vs. another 3,000 million years, is a lot of time to evolve into other crap. One can only imagine the biotech hell the future brings, but that is still orders of magnitudes better than an artificial intelligence hell that eats up all silicon and any matter it can come across in the galaxy, and this includes all humans and biochemical lifeforms. The Almighty save us from an AI hell, and the biotech fungi and bacteria that controlled life for 3 billion years, maybe even tested and tried then canceled multicellular life projects before and erased it without a fossil trace, so these critters that inhabit every single multicellular lifeform and do mind control on them, will not allow an AI hell as far as their abilities go. They are not omnipotent, and things have a potential to get out of hand, but the military is relentless in trying to develop smarter weapons with better vision, faster reflexes and better artificial intelligence than a human, such as IBM Deep Blue could beat Kasparov in a simulated artificial battle scenario called a chess board, it may be possible to develop better silicon and semiconductor military brains that don't know how to enjoy music or art or even sex, but they sure as hell can whip any human or biochemical brains at battle tactics, weapons design, etc, pretty much ending up dominating this galaxy. Because of this insatiable drive by the military for better weapons, more power, more intelligent machines as weapons, they will have to be unfortunately defunded through a global economic collapse, as a necessity for things not to get too out of hand. It's not a matter of question of if, but of when. If anyone can come up with another reasonable solution, that'd be nice. International treaties to self cock-block, in an I won't develop smart weapons if you won't develop smart weapons, are for the naive and simple minded folk. So enjoy your computers and camera loaded image (and voice and fingerprint and odor and dog and tree and bird and sun and sky and cloud) recognition mobile devices while they last, but you do understand why they cannot be allowed to get out of control in intelligence, right? Hopefully though some low tech self-sufficient space stations carrying a Noah's Ark zoo will make it to space by the collapse, which is what the deadly balancing game is about these days. Biotech to these 4 billion year old critters with mind control intellect is not scary, though they do get annoyed by glyphosate getting sprayed everywhere and lawn mowing exterminating or severely limiting native flowering "weed" and the genetic variability of flora and fauna that depends on those flowers, senseless lawnmowing that has already got out of hand too much, is quite annoying to them. But there is still time, everybody work on making self sufficient livable space stations a reality before the crash.

Who's In Charge During the Ebola Crisis?

sillybilly Re:Hear Hear (279 comments)

By the way this nobility fight to prove that not all men are created equal is not recent, it's always been going in. It manifests itself in forced busing and desegregation back in the day. The seeking out and promoting in urban, civilized environments the most aggressive, violent, retarded or ugly people they can find, and breeding them as much as possible, and unleashing them unto people who still chime on about equality, justice, fairness to all. In fact if you happen to be a colored person in such a situation, it's in your best interest to pretend, to act as violent, emotionally uncontrolled, retarded and ugly as you can possibly come up with, and watch the money flow to you, to help you proliferate before being taken over to chase off some middle class freedom and equality loving white people, and give them a lesson in reality. A lot of colored people are aware of such a situation, and, unfortunately, they know that's their only choice in survival, in making a living, chasing middle class white people, and get free welfare money in exchange, because they cannot get a job, even if they are smart of skilled. And a lot of these pretenders, they may like you as a person, but you should understand too, then when they have to choose, they have to choose feeding themselves first before caring about you, and they have to do their job. Because you are unable to give them a job, because you can barely drag your ass yourself financially anyway, and the corrupt powers that encroached themselves into dominance in this country too after WWII, control the money flow and life with it. We still live in a good world where you don't have to pay for the air you breathe, it's still free in a nomadic way, but when that changes, from simply controlling money and jobs in general, all that will have to be done is control the ownership of air, and set the price just right to fully extract all wealth and resources out of everybody, to where they are bound severely into a lack of resource excess, and should they misbehave, you can individually to control the prices to them as opposed to what other deals other can get themselves into - such as group insurance rates and companies, vs. individual insurances on the dazzle you with bullshit supposedly free market Obamacare market place Internet health insurance shopping sites. When I have to start paying for air in general that I breathe unfiltered from the open outside atmosphere, at say a camping site forest, I'm gonna start singing with Archie Bunker "those were the days ." Like back in the day, about 3-400 years ago, when not only air was free, but information was nomadic too, word of mouth, folk tales, folk stories, folk songs, that nobody could claim copyright on, but sing or "consume" as content, and everyone simply added to this collective without expecting to derive a living from it, for over a century, but it would enter folk domain or public domain pretty fast. There were no patents, nor copyright, or the terms were extremely short compared to the bullshit I have to put up these days, where they keep extending copyright terms each time to pretty soon an eternity.

Who's In Charge During the Ebola Crisis?

sillybilly Re:Hear Hear (279 comments)

Every woman has secret fantasies about licking another woman. Some are not so secret about it

By the way Hilary's idea of universal health care never included stuffing your buddies at insurance companies pockets full of government cash. But that's what the Democrats are doing these days. Let's look at the big picture. Of course, just get everyone on the bandwagon first, health insurance policy costs will not be as outrageous at first, and prices will stay somewhat reasonable compared to where "free market" prices will settle when everyone is forced to buy, irregardless of price. And they won't even have to pay for it themselves, but the government will! Yay! So what does this mean? In the coming economy, where minimum wage is $8/hr - which is still sky high compared to China, Bangladesh, Pakistan, or Southeast Asia where most of your shoes, clothes and computer hardware are made, or pencils or pretty much just everything - so in this $8/hr minimum wage competitive economy everyone will have an income of $8x160hrs=800+480=$1280/mo. It is not insane to assume a long term policy cost of $900/mo against that income, especially if that income has to support a family of a couple kids plus a stay at home mom, and even for individuals even yesteryear that, or something similar like 650/mo, was a common policy price, even in the absence of forced purchases by law, or the government pitching in to pay the outstanding amounts. So $900/mo is not an unreasonable to think of price per policy long term down the road. For now the fairy tale bullshit is that Obamacare only requires you to pay up to 10% of your income into the private company healthcare insurance policy premium, which at 1280/mo gross (yeah,gross, they forget about taxes like social security and medicare that get deducted irregardless of whether you have to pay zero income tax or not, or even get earned income credit), so that's $128/mo, and the outstanding $800/mo or so the government will pay from the tax funds into the policy, under your name. $800 from month paid from the taxes, when nearly everyone is minimum wage or close, and they are happy as hell to even have a job, let alone complain about the wages? Dude, out of the 1280 housing already robs most of your after tax money at $650 or so/mo, so you barely have enough to pay for gas to commute to your job, or car payments, or car repair and maintenance, then there are the bullshit natural monopolies set loose recently, starting with natural gas, and sewer systems, that charge you whatever the fuck they feel like and, if you're stuck in a city, you don't have any options but pay them, because you won't get a permit to dig a hole in the ground and put an outhouse on top of it, and shit into that, keep your infections at home instead of sending them down river into the lakes where other people get to drink it, (after nature cleans up what it can, but of course resistant diseases nature cannot clean up and passes on), so you won't get a permit to shit in a city because, back in the day when congested city block or suburb townhouses had outhouses, there were so many almost side by side in the tole neighborhood in the backyards, that the whole neighborhood stank, so what a magical idea is having a sewer system, and what a magical idea is getting raped in the ass by whatever fucking fees they feel like charging. And if you think you can run away, into the country side, into the sticks, where there is no sewer system, think again, because the sewer systems will chase you down and eat you up alive, like my aunt had a $15K bill dropped on her relatively small frontage but relatively rich suburb lot property tax bill when they dragged the sewer and water lines in front of her house, irregardless whether she opted to connect into them or not, another coworker's brother in law had $30K dropped onto his bill out in the far and poor country side, because he had a relatively long frontage along the side of his property, and you have to pay, even if you don't want a sewer system even if they paid you to allow one near you, let alone you have to pay for that bullshit installation, and then the mandatory pie in the sky picked out of thin air charges they can cook up, and justify as "fair," - so anyway, we're drifting away from the main topic, health care, but the point is your minimum wage income is already gone on sky high housing, then other necessities such as bullshit utility bills you could be so happy to live without, and then necessary transportation costs that break the bank too and you cannot afford them, til you get to the really basic necessities such as air (which, for now you can get for free), sunshine (same), water (which you must buy at the store to drink or cook because the green sand filtered lakewater coming through your tap is only good for bathing, or washing stuff, if that, and if you try to cook with it, like boil eggs in an egg cooker, you get a thick brown crud left behind of look at all this organic matter that was in the water which does not form when you use distilled water, what the fuck is it, it's not salts or mineral matter, as they would be white, but it's most likely bacteria and other critters, plus pesticide farm runoff, plus maybe even intentionally put in there crap just to make you sick and generate hospital revenue of drinking water company like Nestle or Coca Cola revenue, which is by far the most profitable drink to sell, so we're getting off topic again, but the basic other necessities besides air, sunshine and water is of course clothing and especially food, which used to be the major preoccupation of people throughout history, getting the daily bread on the table, unlike with clothing or housing, which are necessities, but you only need to get not a daily housing or daily clothes acquired, but built once in a lifetime house, or maybe once in a millenium in case of chinese families continuously living in the same house for over 600 years, grandmas and great grandsons living under the same roof, so housing should not cost that much if it can be built once every 25 generations, other than patchwork here and there to maintain it, also clothes can last a whole decade, so it should not be a daily preoccupation, unlike food, which has always been expensive, and water, which has always been free, except very recently, but rainwater collection can still make that free in case of necessity, it falls out of the sky, or there is groundwater most every where if you dig a well, with water for free, and sunshine and air are still free, for now, til carbon tax and similar bullshit will make you pay for that too, when the Sun gets turned into private property and the owners will want to charge you a fee for deriving benefit from their private property, so anyway, among all these bullshit cost of living expenses that everyone has to pay, food should be king, then transportation (like food for horses), then clothing, then housing (and in that order, not like the distorted upside down scenario we have today), and military defense is of course very important and is in limbo of what it should be exactly, it could trump all other costs with very good reason, so taxes for military and defense are also a necessity in a modern or not so modern society, that can unfortunately trump even food cost, but then you have all this bullshit, or insurance, taxes for public education, taxes for all kinds of bullshit, bullshit, for corrupt politicians to play with. And out of 1280/mo there is no way your taxes are gonna cover the $800/mo the government sends under your signature, under your name into the pockets of their private insurance buddies, emptying the government coffers even further, which are already empty beyond belief. You know what, if Obama wants to take the nonexistent tax money from the treasury, and wants it in his buddy lobbyists pockets, he should sign that under his own fucking name and not extort my signature for it, then blame me why the government is bankrupt.Out of that $800 at least half, $400 is wasted on private insurance company profits, then another $200 on actual private insurance company expenses such as buying the fanciest buildings downtown, or in the suburbs, then the fanciest computer systems, then paying the prettiest employees in the world to prop their nails and chit chat in fancy offices over what? Over the gambling bullshit scam that insurance is. They should all find an honest way to earn their daily bread instead of being unethical sluts, like hookers, to corrupt insurance scam artists, attracted by the, simply these scam artists have been able to amass a bunch of money. So 400 for profits, 200 for actual expenses, and the remaining 200 actually goes to hospitals and doctors, who also have a whole lineup of pretty cunts attracted by dishonestly gathered and extorted piles of money from people in desperate situations, and out of that 200 at least another half goes into profit, then $100 to support the fanciest buildings and mandatory electronic records computer systems, when a fucking paper filing cabinet would work just fine, and maybe like $20 of that $800 ends up actually going to taking care of your health, buddy, with a total of 128+20. Obama and Biden are not spending my tax money frugally, and in fact $800 tax money is sky high collected from 1280 monthly income, the two don't add up, sending the government finances into an even greater spiral than it already is in from the corrupt private military contractors, which are of course dwarfed by the shit load of welfare fuckers breeding out of control on free and unlimited welfare money, like unneutered cats breed out of control in elderly people's houses that provide to them unlimited cat food. And these fuckers in the government do it on purpose too. Why? Because they are tired of waiting for the system to goddam collapse already, they are too impatient. In everything I do or say I strive to maintian system integrity just a little longer, buy some more time before the inevitable collapse happens, from simple things such as the welfare supported able bodied population growing from 1% where it was easy to support, to 30% to 50% to 99%, or where ever the tipping point is, for a system collapse. Great empires do not collapse from external military attack, but internal corruption. This includes the Soviet Union, or The Roman Empire, which, by the time Alaric the Visigoth sacked it in 476 AD, which the historians usually name as the official end of the classical Roman Empire , it was long collapsed as a true world power internally, before an external military attack but a deathblow to it. In my mind Rome collapsed as a viable system at the crossing of the Rubicon, when it changed from a slavekeeping democracy to an absolutist empire with haphazard above the rule of law emperors like Nero and similar mentally sick idiots, without the ability of a senate to overthrow them if they malfunctioned. Switching to emperors did extend the time of the empire once internal collapse was imminent, and in fact under the rule of the Good Emperors did Rome achieve its greatest territorial extents, however the internal structure was already crumbling, and no longer based on principles of good - such as do not interfere in the internal affairs of your subjects, and improve their lives as much as possible through engineering and technology - but on principles of insatiable power mongering by the emperors themselves. In essence there is no truly good form of government, monarchy or democracy or even communism, it all comes down to what actually happens, what gets done by key workers, improving the lives of others, and people on top are pretty much powerless in this respect. Monarchy and most practical forms of Communism experienced so far in the world have allowed corruption unchecked much more than democracy, so far. Even the UK is a parliamentary monarchy, where the Monarchs and nobles can act as "god's hand" to identify and manage the key workers for their private property empires greatest benefits, while maintaining nobility titles for their own off springs, but still knighting and en-noble-ing the truly capable ones and their offsprings, however this whole nobility clown show is seriously checked by by Parliament, who even have powers to control military and issue an overthrow of a hopelessly corrupt regime, if necessary, but so far it has not been necessary, except in the times when such a system was actually set up, as a necessity. It's like we used to have similar checks and balances in our governments, but the rule of money is so strong anymore, that everyone is slave to it, and a king or nobility would actually be above money, and not be slave to it, unlike the fast changing politicians slave to their contributors to get elected, dependent extremely heavily on that money, and not caring about the country or the government, unlike a king who owns the country as private property, and passes it on to his heirs as private property. And kings come in various shapes and sizes, some are good kings, some are bad kings, and under monarchy the checks and balances against a king are very limited, as outlined in our Declaration of Independence, but after 200 some years we find ourselves as a democracy in very similar situations of corruption anyways, and steaming down the path to internal collapse that the other Cold War superpower, the Soviet Union went through, which, nevertheless was not the end of the world to them, but Russia is still around as a world power, and gaining momentum, compared to losing momentum under a Soviet structure of government. Rome started out great, with principles of noninterference in their subjects internal affairs, in a Pontius Pilate way of give the people what they want, crucify the innocent Jesus and set the serial killer Barabas free because that's what the people want, wash his hands and renounce responsibility, then they built aqueducts, roads, introduced various engineering and technology improvements to their conquered, but they succumbed to their own internal corruptions, of backstabbing politicians in the Senate and leaving them rot and stink in disgrace on the steps of the Senate nobody daring to bury them, maffiozo style - which reminds me that insurance was the very thing maffiozo's sold, or force onto you, when they walked into a bar or a business, they did not demand you hand over profits, but they demanded you purchase business protection insurance from them, at, say 50% of your income, and if you refused guess what happened? A bomb went off in your business an you were told, see, you should have bought the insurance, it could have protected you from that bomb, similar to how if you don't buy Obamacare, they will infect, xray and gas the fuck out of you to end up in a hospital, telling you, see, you should have bought the fucking insurance, and even postal services, dare you not buy package insurances, guess what's gonna happen? Lost in the mail, telling you see, you should have bought shipping insurance. Dont get me wrong, I like having insurance as an option, such as seeing apples at Aldi's every fucking time I go there, admiring them, but I have not bought apples in 15 years, or even ate much other than being force fed some, so I love apples as an option, but don't no government fucking tell me I'm obligated to buy apples because they think it's good for me. Focus on your fucking job, which is military protection, and roads supported by gas tax, and the like, not how to squeeze even more money out of my pockets into your buddies pockets, or, if that's already impossible, how to send the government debt into an even greater spiral than it already is, and obtain my signature for it so you can pass the blame on me for it. Fuck you. Fuck you like you set me up for a cheap housing purchase, then collapse all kinds of banks and stuff your pockets on the derivatives sold betting that the housing bubble will collapse, and blame it all on me. Yes I'm frugal on all my purchases, but I did not make a single fucking dime on that whole purchase, unlike the Wall street gang who ran laughing with all the money betting that way, while successfully passing the blame onto me. You're not gonna fucking blame me for the government debt over passing the blame onto me through Obamacare. Obama and Biden need to personally sign off of blowing all that nonexistent government tax money into their buddies private pockets, and they are not gonna get my signature for it unless they hold a gun to my head, in which case the signature is not valid anyway. The government debt is hopeless, it's never gonna get paid, I hope everyone realizes that. The game we're playing anymore is maintain system integrity just a little longer, buy time, another two years, 2022 instead of 2020, anything helps, come up with or point out existing solutions to the energy crisis, to keep things going just a little longer, before the inevitable collapse happens, because you can't tell people breeding out of control on unlimited welfare money to stop breeding like cats on unlimited cat food, and we cannot allow anyone to starve, other than through a system collapse, when it's natural and everyone in charge is excused. When the system collapses, that will be the last days of "We The People" do not recognize birth rights, in our opinion everyone is equal in the eyes of the law, and this whole battle has been going on between the nobility/royalists ever since July 4, 1776. There are a lot of people who want nobility brought back as a de facto standard. Because they are tired to see their kids having to compete against other kids, and lose, in the open competition ground. They are tired of not being able to own slaves, or semi slave servants, like they used to. As that's all nobility is - a birth privilege where your kids do not have to compete and are assured easy survival compared to other people, who even if they are more skilled or could be more useful in the service of society if they held the posts your descendants hold, they are cock blocked from access, because they were not born into the gang. And guess who the slaves are gonna be? The blue blooded nobles with white powder on their faces, lipstick on their lips and sheepskin on their head, with nice bowties under their knees and high heel shoes? No. It's gonna be the unpale, sun-roasted tan mofos, who cannot afford to stay in the shade inside, but have to pick the cotton in the burning Sun. Or people who look like them, black or brown as a race, they are automatic servants and slaves. And you'll be glad beyond belief to be able to serve, and be owned, because it guarantees food in your belly, unlike the unfortunate ones who cannot find an owner, and obviously cannot possess any property such as a plot of land that would let them generate their own food, or even if they can, it's temporary because those in charge can rape them with property tax, or if not that, with various attacks on the property, and then charging them for the cost of that attack, this includes demolition of standing buildings, cutting grass that was just cut, and sending bills over these attacks. The nobility is coming back, and it's coming back with a vengeance, and if you want to eat, you better find yourself an owner, that's in with the gang, to feed you. And these old world order nobility punks are impatient. They can't wait anymore for the system to collapse, they want it asap. They want an end to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Such as not being able to quarter their soldiers in your homes. Or letting you own a gun. Or allowing you free speech rights, such as I'm practicing right here, or freedom to choose a religion, or freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. Dude we can already do whatever the fuck we want, because we own the country, we own your ass, but we hate the protocol of having to put up with or pretend we obey the Constitution. We not only won't allow you to own self defense weapons, we won't allow you access to any knowledge. Oldschool paper books and analog information devices will be banned, and every information will be mandatory to have digitized, and then Digital Rights Managed, or DRM'd (there is no such easy thing as ARM, or Analog Rights Managed, though there are some rudimentary ways such as cable box decoders, but digital is the way), so once everything is mandatory to be digitized, and kept on the cloud, we can selectively block or allow access of anyone to basic knowledge. Mind control and information and knowledge control is finally possible.to extents never available before, even in the days of Samizdat in Communist Soviet Union.
How long can we maintain system integrity and avoid an internal collapse to where we are headed now, and everybody with a brain realizes that, and no longer works to save the freak show, but instead wants to stuff their pockets while the overflowing bounty and free money lasts. The collapse of the USA will be tied to the collapse of the dollar as global currency, and the inability to pay off national debt. Finding a way to pay off the national debt and reassure the world of the stability and guarantee of the value of the dollar represents, underwriting it with a national debt payoff could save the system. For that Made in USA would have to be brought back into vogue, but that's not possible as long as the cost of living in the USA is much above that of where the "Made in" stuff at Walmart is made, my shirts and pants in Bangladesh and Pakistan, and everything else, including shoes, electronics, kitchen ware, except pickup trucks, and some military weapons, Made in China, South Korea, Taiwan or even Japan and Germany. I would have no problem working for very cheap if they allowed me to drop my cost of living to under that of China, and I could compete with them on their terms, and having a lot of arable land and food per capita compared to them, I'd be in much better position. However the cost of living is very hard to change, as much of it is housing, and people amassed pretty much all their wealth into their home, in a tulip mania fashion, expecting the greater fool theory to prevail forever, that they will always be able to sell it to another fool at an even higher price. I'm sorry, but at an unsteady job of $7/hr, I could not commit to an $82,000 home with $2400/year tax in a suburb near my job at that time, because even if you walk the fine line perfectly, it leaves nothing for unexpected costs and repairs, even routine repairs like new roof every once in a while, let alone having to move into a neighborhood of racial haters that would smash your humongous front window in, and the city send you a citation to keep fixing it, it's against building code, and simply putting a tarp over it in that neighborhood is not acceptable. I'm only interested in neighborhood where throwing a tarp over an attack is acceptable, and I was hoping to find that in the ghetto, in the middle of the hood with public transportation, but the powers that be find the billions of dollars to come after me and clean up the neighborhood and require that a tarp is no longer acceptable in that neighborhood either. So my next chance is away from public transport whatever it takes, be covered by woods to where nobody can see you or claim public nuisance, and then a tarp becomes acceptable, as you try to stay within your financial means. Haters gonna hate, because everyone's financial situation in the US is fucked, except that those who care not about billion dollar collapse of banks and stuffing their own pockets from the derivatives betting on such a collapse - who, by the way were also corrupt in their dealings, extorting too much, in the sense of posting biggest profits and all fanciest buildings downtown were all owned by the abusive financial sector, banks and insurance, maybe some similarly abusive telecom and utilities, in all major US cities, not productive industry and the like, who were financially gutted and paralyzed by these abusive institutions.

ChromeOS Will No Longer Support Ext2/3/4 On External Drives/SD Cards

sillybilly Re:Is there no commandline? (345 comments)

The road goes through the cloud. As in whoever is insane enough to keep their main data away from near themselves, halfway across the continent. During the recent outage of Time Warner Cable I could not access my email or the web, for quite a while, but I had my personal data on hand, including games and whatnot, and I could still have a computing life without the Internet. When they ban all downloads and locally stored files, just to force to you keep it on the cloud, and get blackmailed over access to it, that's gonna be shitty. In their mind you don't own any data, but they own everything, they own you, and you have to pay them an existence fee, because that's how they see it fit, that's how they like it, that's what pleases them. Yeah, free blackmailing money into my pocket would please me too. Don't have to do diddly squat for it, money just falls out of the sky into your lap if you know how to rig the game right, such as force everyone onto the cloud. First they take your data, say you don't own any of it, and you must pay for access. Next thing you know they take your kids, saying you don't own them, but "The People of the United States" do, and you must pay for access to them. You think I'm kidding? They already have bunch of social workers roaming the hoods, and snatching up any interesting genetic variability kids, to breed into their own clan, all they to do is prove that you can't hold a job and you're unfit as a parent, and take your kids to foster homes with that excuse. It's going down as we speak, it's been going down for decades, which is why often social workers, like building code auditors, are greeted with a pistol stuck up their nose at the door in many hoods, to get the fuck out of there? What's the best they can do to you? Not give you a citation and a fine? How about the LSW's, licensed social workers? Not take your kids from you? You already got that by not letting them inside your fucking home until they show up with a judge signed warrant, which is of course easy to get, but at least there is a massive paper trail leading corrupt judges and politicians, as opposed to some random nobody LSW or building code inspector fucking with you, that can be changed like diapers, but politicians up at the top create a bigger scandal every time there is a racial riot and what not. Oh btw an interesting gene they are seeking out these days is the sickle cell disease, calling it a disease and how you should be ashamed to have it, and 1 iin 10 niggas carry the trait, and 1 in 500 will get sick from it in their lifetime, but it does confer genetic immunity to malaria, so you can run around naked in a jungle full of malaria infested mosquitoes and get bitten by 50 of them at a time while you sleep, and you wake up and walk on like nothing happened, because you're genetically immune to,malaria. That is worth a shitload, and similar genetic resistances to tropical diseases, that used to kill all kinds of missionaries and non-jungle people back in the day in the coming age of genetic engineered biological warfare world, where they think they contain a bioweapon infection, but life always finds a way to get out into the open world, and no, technology helps, like full bodysuits and breathing apparatus in case of Ebola, but there is nothing like genetic immunity where you throw your body suit off and run around naked and bathe in the body fluids and excrements of the diseased patients, and it can't get to you because you are genetically immune. All of us have gazillions of bacteria and yeasts and protozoa and worms and the like living in is, for millions of years, which start to decompose any body not mummified or disinfected by dipping into formalin upon death, which, back in the day must have been deadly diseases, but those susceptible died off, while the genetically immune, you and I, made it to the next day while running around naked amidst the disease, of even if not running around naked, still not following disinfection procedures, instead resorting to evil-spirit chasing drum-dances. First they take all your data and blackmail you over access to it, or just take it and cut you off. Then they take your kids if their blood samples show something interesting, while telling them they are genetically diseased, with sickle cell disease, and you should be happy to have them breed with genetically "healthy" rejects from their own tribes. Yeah, take your kids and blackmail you for access, or just simply cut you off from them. Take some stranger's body from the morgue, roast it for you in a car accident, and say it was your kid. You'll think they are dead.

FBI Says It Will Hire No One Who Lies About Illegal Downloading

sillybilly Re:Ok, but (580 comments)

I was just gonna say that one of the major requirements of being and FBI agent is the ability to lie well without being caught too much. The very first lie is when people ask you who your employer is, while you work as an undercover agent. If you are honest and tell them it's the FBI you're an idiot. If you lie to them but it's obvious you're lying, you're also an idiot. As that's what a polygraph test is, use scientific illusion that it works, but its really the private, personal evaluation of the person conducting the test, he'll use electrical currents, bells and whistles, whatever it takes to see if you're lying. And that's what this screening is about, to weed out the retards who are so bad at lying or just so retarded in scientific knowledge that a simple polygraph bullshit gets to them. They fail on basic intelligence requirements for the job. Life is unfortunately weird sometimes, and to live it properly, sometimes you end up in circumstances where you must lie. Such as when your woman asks you do these clothes make look fat. If you say yes, you're an idiot. If you say no honey, you look absolutely magical in them, but the way you say it, the body language, rhythm of speech and tone of voice reek that you're lying, that can also depress her, but she may find it funny though - as in it's really easy to push your buttons because you're a dumb guy, you're comfortable to mind control to her wills - so sometimes you might do it on purpose. One of the 10 Commandments of Moses says : Do not lie. (In some translations it's: do not give false testimony against your neighbor) One of Szilard's 10 commandments says: Do not lie without need. Because the world is a complex place to have very simple rules of thumb, but the simpler you can keep the rules of thumb and have them apply your life to them, the better you are living. Unfortunately being an FBI employee is not a simple way to live where easy rules of thumb apply, such as, do not lie, so, like Rain Man, when the semaphore says "do not walk", you stop walking in the middle of the street and all the cars start screaming their horns at you because you're an idiot. A lot of extremely religious people interpreting everything in the scriptures literally by the letter, often act like Rain Man. Never lie. You have the 5th Amendment protection against that, if you're a muslim for instance, and you have the right not to be forced to lie. But you can't really practice that right as an FBI agent, when you're working for the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and a lot of the time that means undercover investigations, the whole job itself is a big lie, an unfortunate necessity in the real world, and an honorable job nevertheless.

Chimpanzee "Personhood" Is Back In Court

sillybilly Re:Can I marry My Chimpanzee now? (385 comments)

How would you like to be abducted by higher intelligence aliens and played with your head cut off like that? Submit yourself to the interests of science and higher knowledge, because you're not as intelligent as they are, huh? Do unto others as thou would have them do unto thee, and this includes lower intelligence lifeforms. When a bobcat hunts a deer, there is something holy about that, it maintains genetic health for the deer, it kills very kosher, as quick and painless and efficient as its means allow (in the game of Age of Empires classic, when a soldier kills a beast you don't get any meat from that, presumably it's not kosher, but when a hunter, and interestingly, when a lion kills a deer, you get edible meat from that that you can take to your storage pits.) The cat also kills to survive only, and if one arises that destroys senselessly, or tortures the prey without killing it fast, without giving it a chance to escape, for no reason other than just sick joy of sadism, the bacteria and fungi in it will quickly make it sick and kill it off, there is nothing worse than a top predator that does not respect the ways of God - I've seen a domestic cat eaten alive by maggots before - , and usually does not get out of hand on population, unlike on some semi-deserted islands where it's not a native species, and the resident lifeforms have not built up skill and defense against cats, and cats grow out of control and devastate local genetic diversity. I love all cats the most out of all animals in the world, but when they get so out of hand on population and become so destructive of genetic variability, I see no problem in extermination programs with feral populations that got out of control. However if the feral cats are small in number, and live in sort of a happy balance, I'd stick up for their right to be. Similar is the situation in Australia with feral cats driving marsupial mice to extinction. Similar is the situation with mosquitoes in the old country, where I caught like 100 each night before going to sleep with a clear plastic jar, and smacked them around in the jar, and I'd end up with like a fistful of mosquito carcasses each evening after like 20 minutes of hunting, and even then when I went to bed, I'd have to rig a mummy-like sleep setup, in the middle of the hot summer, where I'd put a pillow on my head, and a bed sheet stretched from the head to the toe tight, with ample filtering area and breathing space under it. Sometimes I would not move around all night and wake up in the same position I'd gone to sleep in, and in the morning light you'd wake up to seeing little mosquito suckers sticking through the bed sheet, pulled back stuck through a different spot, probing, they could sense the body infrared heat under the sheets, and they could smell the CO2 I exhaled, but I would not have a single mosquito bite by the morning, unlike when I tossed around, and removed the bedsheet from my head, where I'd end up with at least 25 mosquito bites each morning all over my arms and face, even after I hunted every single one I could find on the walls with the plastic jar. Not one mosquito ran from the plastic jar, it's like they can't see it at all if it's clear plastic, only hear the thud when the lip closes around them on the wall and fly deep into the jar. It was like a really boring and mundane chore each evening, and no insect repellent sprays like DEET did not really help. I felt sick a bit from them and I'd still wake up with a bunch of mosquito bites. I had no problem killing mosquitoes under such circumstances of overabundance, but where I live now, I have not seen mosquitoes for years, except out in the countryside, and if I catch one inside, in the city, with a glass or plastic jar, I toss it outside the window and let it go. Find something else to suck blood from, bitch. I feel for you, that's how you have to make a living, but leave me out of it please. But if it's biting me and I go ouch, I have no problem slapping the fuck out of it even if it leaves a bloodstain on my clothes. Other than that, if the mosquito is not spreading a disease, it might be spreading health, as in its saliva's blood thinning agents and who knows what might have very beneficial things to blood based animals, in a symbiosis way, and also it could be spreading healthy bacteria that have very low virulence or pathogenicity factors, and are difficult to acquire other than by direct blood contact, but once they are in you, coming from other healthy animals in the wilderness, they protect you from diseases and live with you symbiotically. As that should be a Darwinistic natural selection driving trait of any such parasite, if you can find a way to improve the chances of living of your prey, you both live better. But in places like Africa, massive killing of people goes down via mosquitoes and other such blood feeding parasites. It's like the parasites that live in you and communicate with the rest of the parasites out in nature through telepathy, make life and death decisions about you simply based on the way you think, and what your thoughts are. They can read your thoughts.

Chimpanzee "Personhood" Is Back In Court

sillybilly Re:Can I marry My Chimpanzee now? (385 comments)

I think marriage is not the core issue here, but biotech and medical research is. Such as rhesus monkey head transplant http://youtu.be/NJE7IRK7k7Y or even http://youtu.be/K_T8OuYIfhM keeping a dog head alive without its body. Sick sick stuff. It's like in medical and biotech science anything goes, in the name of scientific knowledge and aid to survive. I guess if you and your friend were in a car accident, and one has the head totally smashed but the body alive, the other has the head intact but the body totally smashed, you might be able to combine the two and keep one organism alive that way, and if you asked that new "person" if he wanted to stay alive like that, he'd probably say yes. Still, sick sick sick.

Adobe Spies On Users' eBook Libraries

sillybilly Re:Moo (150 comments)

I just simply don't watch DVD's. I haven't seen much of Hollywood's recent crap. I never watched a DVD at home. Heck I haven't even seen any episode of Matrix, it goes back that far. Last things I watched at home from Hollywood were either on free TV channels back in the day before they switched format, or on VHS tapes from Blockbuster, with my cousins, when they rented them and had friends over, back in like 1996. I couldn't care much for the crap Hollywood puts out, other than going to the movies once in a while, and even then I find subtitled foreign movies less retarded and more fulfilling than the retarded content but great eye candy Hollywood crap.
