Fiction is great at presenting a narrative.

Not sure how woke the Chinese are though.

Great points. When done well, science fiction asks all those questions. Every robot revolt/tyrannical computer story ever was about rushing for convenience and luxury while ignoring unintended consequences. I recall a short story called "The Iron Chancellor" about a home security/housekeeper robot that kept its rich, suburban family forever imprisoned after it went haywire and conflated them leaving the house with an intruder crossing in. It also fed them nothing but dry toast.

No wonder that wokists would produce science fiction where tech advances only have upsides, and where tweaking on parameter does not perturb the entire system.

And now I read that Facebook thinks adding facial recognition to glasses is a grand idea. What could go wrong?

Interesting essay. One thing that comes to mind as objectionable, is what I call the Jurassic Park problem. Ian Malcolm's claim "Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should." I think this is a real problem with the way the world works, and a particularly strong argument against the moral framework that is presented in the original Star Trek as outlined in that essay.

The best example I like is that we know the USSR tried to cross Ebola and smallpox. While this undoubtedly requires a significant amount of intellectual prowess, it also clearly lacks wisdom. I've come to fear that all technology suffers from this problem. No one would have predicted, for example, that automobiles were such a fantastic means of producing carbon dioxide. This is not to say that discarding all technology and living in Michael Piller's utopia is appealing - I hated the fawning over the insipid Ba’ku too - but, it isn't obvious to me that we can actually achieve good outcomes through reason alone. This seems to be particularly true when new technologies are based on flaws on our evolutionary heritage. Take Brive's insufferable diet posts: He has a real point that food technology has had unintended consequences. Our taste for sugar is almost certainly an evolutionary hack for the nutrients we actually had difficulty finding in antiquity, and is pretty disastrous in the modern world. Social media is another example, hacking into our social requirements in a similar way that seems to have similarly disastrous effects.

I'm not saying that I want to ban Facebook and Coca-Cola, I'm just saying that Huxley's Soma fueled slavery is just as big a problem as a Orwell's tyrannical Big Brother. What's really required are Men with Chests and a consistent means of producing them.

We do have serious technological questions coming up in our future that will have far more profound effects than the development of nuclear weapons. Generalised Artificial Intelligence and human genetic engineering. I have no doubt the Chinese will be producing genetically engineered super humans within my life time. I really don't know how we respond to this in a sensible way. It seems to me a net good if we are able to eliminate genetic diseases prior to birth, but the Gattaca world is definitely not one I'd want to live on or bequeath my descendants.

Joe B is not "dumb". Neither was G H W Bush. Neither was Trump. I wouldn't call any of them dumb.

They all have a talent for telling the story that people want to hear. I do this kind of thing on my job all the time. I work as a program manager, quality manager, and other roles. I don't lie.... well not exactly... and I don't know all the facts I am talking about... but I frame things in a way where my listeners agree with what actions are needed. Joe and Donald and George are better at this skill than I am. They also have a lot of cronies who push others to follow along... following the party line.

Trumpsters... and Biden fans... etc. are all fairly stupid. They want to be led and they don't want to understand the "facts". They want the story. It makes them feel good. They are watching a TV show.

Joe Biden is genuinely dumb, tho.

A couple days ago he went to Texas in response to 'the emergency' and spoke for 20 minutes about Covid/ not about the recent freeze or it's causes or effects. He just talked about 'the emergency' he wanted to talk-about, not the one he didn't.

I was struck by a moment in the speech-- where Biden declared he was going-to defeat Covid/ as if saying-so makes it true. Then he proudly declared his greatest achievement was going to be to defeat Cancer. It's not an 'achievement' until you do it. But he's already taking a bow. Then he interrupted himself with a stray thought: maybe his amazing defeat of Cancer isn't even his greatest achievement: he's even greater than he thought! After all, he just landed a rover on Mars!

video:


Of course, that Mars rover was on its way to Mars before Biden took office. And so was fighting-covid and fighting-cancer. But this retarded story is like all the other times Biden improvised a grandiose brag-- Mandela thanking him for getting arrested in South Africa. Biden's 'top of the class' success in college. Biden's imaginary participation in civil rights sit-ins and marches. Dunning-Kruger.

Some of Biden's supporters genuinely believe his b.s. And some pretend to believe, to support The Cause.

Holy Tip-of-the-Iceberg. I can't name a better site for anti-Biden news... than TYT curating official Biden Admin statements.

Check out Kamala's weird shit about "Covid's toll on WOMEN". ...which is actually a description of how Lockdowns and School Closings screwed women.

And Biden's solution? Those "$1400" checks and tax credits for families-with-children. Neither of which is specific to women.

(Unless only women can bear children. Oh, the transphobia! The bigotry!)

Why did they produce this video at all? Better to stay silent than call attention to to their failed lockdown policies, pandering to the teacher's unions, and their broken $2000 promise.

YouTube offered me clips, posted by The Young Turks, with saucy titles, suggesting these would be slam dunk moments for Jen Psaki and the Biden Admin.

I'm not seeing it. I see evasion, condescension, failure to own responsibility. Blame-Trump-or-Covid for everything.




What does this mean? Has TYT sunk to the level of pure clickbait? Not caring whether their content matches the title, as long as you click?

Or maybe far-left TYT knows these aren't really 'psmackdowns' and they're being passive-aggressive against Republican-lite Biden?

My concern is-- that TYT & their audience really-do think these are highlights. If so, I think they just like her hair or her know-it-all tone. The superficial package looks ok to them & they don't notice the lack of substance. If Biden's empty hand bluffing succeeds, that suggests a major voting bloc of blue-pill addicts. So eager to be told what they want to hear, that they'll accept that instead of demanding real results. Politicians will gladly exploit this-- all talk/ no solutions, while the nation crashes.

Same could be said on the Trump side: I know many MAGA fanboys loved Kaleigh McEnany because she looked like a porn star. And Trump's speeches were piles of purple adjectives, often with a void where substance should have been. Plenty of MAGA hat wearers enjoyed cheering-on-cue, without scrutinizing the message. Taking outlandish swings, indifferent to whether the punch even landed-- was Trump's brand.

But-- I see a difference. Trump actually represented a declassé populist base, which he-himself assembled. Whereas Biden seems like a carpetbagger-- eager to half-ass shapeshift into whatever populist faction he can pander-to. Obama's coattails, Tough-on-crime and/or ACAB abolish the police and/or gun grabbing, Wokeness, Boomer centrism, Green New Deal, teachers unions, tranny hitlers.

Joseph Robinette Biden The Third (known as "Beau Biden")-- forever trying to live-up to Joe Biden's bragging about Joe Biden-- married one of those daughters. And, after Beau died, Hunter Biden moved-in with one daughter, rented a house with the other, and did sexytime with both.

And, according to Beau's widow, Hunter was also sexually inappropriate with the under-age granddaughters. Texts show that Jim Biden & Joe Biden told Hunter they would "shove it down her fucking throat" in response to the concerned mother's 2018 claim.

Texts also show Hunter discussing 'folding clothes' in a Whole Foods Bathroom with the 14-year old grand-daughter. 'Folding clothes' is slang from a 2017 J. Cole rap song about sneaking-away to have sex.
A reaction that accords with the defensive and very aggressive responses he is prone to giving when put on the spot. Never did buy the kindly uncle PR, it's a bad fit. His general demeanour leads me to give some credence to stories like this one https://www.theunionjournal.com/investi ... vestigate/ while keeping in mind how easy it is to get taken in by smears. Joe's public stance on his son is really inadequate. After the laptop went public with all of it's revelations of debauchery all he could say was that he was proud of Hunter? He saw no problem with the Burisma gig? He either snaps back angrily or just brushes off questions on the subject, never giving any real explanation. Questioning him is probably going to become punishable by complete cancellation so he has no worries, at least until Harris wants him disappeared.

The child's mother had forbid Hunter from seeing the girl, accusing him of face-time-ing the child nude and smoking crack in front of the child.

Hunter and the child evaded the mother's wishes and exchanged emotional texts about how much they missed each other. Hunter asked the child her location. The child said she was at the mall near her home. Hunter suggested folding clothes with the child in bathroom at Whole Foods.



Hunter Biden still walks free. He still owns his stake in a billion-dollar sweetheart deal with China's Communist Party. The media suppressed the story of statutory rape, as well as Doctor Jill Biden's second husband's role in the cover-up.

Lovely family.
Hunter is the apple of Joe's eye and it brings a tear to said eye that he's gone into the family sleaze business. The family is so obviously corrupt. It takes a special set of tinted glasses not to see that when you look at the decades long history of money paid to family members by influence peddlers at opportune times. It beggars belief that he can claim not to know what Hunter is up to with such a long history of graft. He would have to be stupid or blind.
Beau was Joe's favorite, and was tapped to continue the Biden crime family's legacy. Hunter was always coddled, cuz he got more fucked up in the car crash, and Joe always felt a little remorse for being away that night getting a blow job from Jill.

Back when Biden was merely an obstacle to Lizzie Warren, the media published exposés like this:

Biden Inc.: Over his decades in office, ‘Middle-Class Joe’s’ family fortunes have closely tracked his political career.

Is he now admitting that China are not friends of the US? Has there ever been an administration so intent on erasing the previous one and trash talking it to a ridiculous degree while taking credit for it's achievements?

I don't see much reference to Cho Bi-Ding's Munich "ni**er" slip. TBF I think he fumbled an attempt to say "eager" rather than uttering a touretty N-word.

My wife got her first shot of the Moderna vaccine yesterday. I don't know why they gave her a shot except that she has all her medical records in an automated system at the local hospital. She has heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, and is obese. Maybe they looked at her records and said... "Fucking hell... this bitch needs a shot". I don't know.

But all went well. She didn't have a reaction, but she did sleep all day today.... which is kind of normal. Anyway.... that is good news. When she texted me that she had the shot I cried. Next dose in late March.

Today, GF heard a commotion under our window. She looked out & saw 2 men fighting. They kept fighting, even as a copcar approached.

Soon, her 'Citizen' app reported the men had fled, one was caught-- one got away. According to snippets of police radio, the one who was caught was a suspect in the shooting, a few days ago. I wonder if the fight was due to the other guy trying to capture him?

The police radio chatter was a mess. Someone-- either the dispatcher or the cops on the street-- described the fighters as Possibly Armed. So, afterward, when the street cops said the guy they caught was suspected of being 'involved in the shooting', the Central dispatcher got confused & didn't know if shots were fired today/ or if the cop was referring to the prior shooting.

The cop kept replying to Central, using the word 'shooting', but not clarifying if shots were fired today. Central kept asking the cop for clarification--whether shots were fired to day. Which led to Traffic 7 thinking that Central was affirmatively stating that shots were fired today.

An hour or so later-- I went downstairs to help GF haul-up bags of groceries. And two shaggy white guys were hanging out in front of the nail salon...

in FULL BLACKFACE. Ears, hands... their coats & sneakers looked like they were all coated with brown -stuff-. Like chimney sweeps. They looked like derelicts, but if you were fully dusted in weird brown grime, you'd probably look homeless/ now matter how respectable you looked beforehand.

They looked like Dan Ackroyd in Trading Places.

Speaking of 'disinformation', I was just watching PBS News Hour report on Congress's hearing-- regarding the security fail on 1/6 at the Capitol.

At this point, I shouldn't be surprised at anything emitted by Yamiche Alcindor. And yet... I was still startled by her claim of 'disinfo' from Sen. Josh Hawley.

Apparently Hawley asked questions about leftwing infiltration & incitement on 1/6. That's factually true. BLM activist John Sullivan's involvement is well-documented, for example.

(By the way-- 7 days ago, the post reported that Sullivan sold video footage of 1/6 to CNN and NBC for $35,000

Yet PBS firmly accuses Hawley of spreading misinformation:

This is the real motivation behind the racial division media complex IMHO. Nice chart of racism references in the media over time and it shows a big uptick immediately after the Occupy demos.


Would have placed such claims about Wall Street influence in the wingnut category not so long ago but the Trump era has been a rude awakening. I'm always giving my 2 cents about political and social trends but beyond the obvious political moves by the usual suspects I don't think your average Joe has a clue about who is really pulling the strings and why. Social and political movements with their own motivations but the real power brokers can decide whether they thrive or die.

Apparently, due to the condition of his legs, Kathy Bates lives in the area and extracted Tiger Woods from his vehicle. I’m surmising.
Also, if you were following the news coverage and took a shot of tequila every time “there could have been a coyote in the road” was said, you’d be dead right now.

Happy to report to GySgt Brive results from my range experiment to compare speed of the Uberti Winchester 1873 with the Martini-Henry and Lee-Metford video test. My GF had me go first.

My shooting pasture only extends to about 75 yards, but we were firing .357 pistol rounds, not .303 or .402 Saturn V's, so I think the comparison is valid. Our target -- through buckhorn sights -- was an 18" Shoot'n'C roundel, again a fair equivalent to the torso-shaped, cardboard Tommy in the video. Lamentably, I eschewed cosplay for T-shirt and jeans.

The Winnie was preloaded with 12 rounds in the magazine, chamber empty. Timing started the instant I ran the lever to chamber a round. Timing stopped when I raised rifle to port arms, executed a sharp wheel to the left, and saluted. Yeah, right.

Results: 12 rounds in 40 sec and change, all shots on target, including three bullseyes. So 3.33 seconds per round, slower than the Lee-Metford in the video, though I was considerably delayed on two occasions when I had to dump the casings that had ejected into the palm of my trigger hand. The 1873 ejects upwards, and I've had casings hit me in the nose, bounce off the brim of my cap, and generally dance in front of my eyes. OTOH, for the Lee-Metford, 8 rounds were fired from the mag, then 2 by hand.

My GF fired 8 rounds at just under 3 sec per, but her group was shit.

Didn't test the Henry Golden Boy. It's highly accurate as fast as you can run it -- which is very fast -- but the .22, especially the short, do begin to drop beyond 30 yards. I saw no point in timing the Mini-14 semi-auto, although a comparison between running one 10 rd mag vs. two 5s might be interesting. Inserting mags is a bit of a pain.

My neighbor just snagged a CA-compliant AR-15 and will be bringing it over soon. I predict he'll get off 20 rounds in 2 seconds, every one a hit somewhere among my pine trees, and whoop in glee.

To be quite honest, I'm more of a "swords 'n' sandals" kinda guy (really setting myself up with that, huh?) although I'm a "high fantasy" nut as opposed to "shit ages" fiction. Got to be dragons, orcs, pointy-eared wussies (elves, obviously) and a vast, supporting cast of rogues, barbarians, buxom wenches and evil wizards.

I like sci-fi but I love swords & sorcery.

Balrog beats blaster, any day!

Very suspicious of any Canadian me too-ing no matter how many accusers come out of the woodwork. Would need some serious corroboration. If it is true then hope he gets what he deserves and it couldn't happen to a more deserving BLM groupie.

I think two episodes directly related to agriculture on Ganymede. Couple more episodes had scenes there but with no farming.

Over the last few days, I read Heinlein's 'Farmer in the Sky' to GF, while she cooked. In honor of Texas freezing. I smiled when I saw the words "An unseasonal freeze in Texas..." on the page, given as an example of disaster with unforseen consequences. And he used the term 'greenhouse effect' in 1950.

The good parts held up. But reading it aloud revealed how dry Heinlein's scientific exposition can be. Theoretically, it's wonderful & kooky that he made literature out of that stuff. But sometimes it's just work to get-thru. Also the book was originally serialized in Boy's Life magazine, and the pacing was probably tailored for that format. Some sections shoulda been 4 pages, but were probably 12 or 16 so they could stand alone in the magazine.

During the reading, I watched some YouTube vids about Ganymede... and some clips from The Expanse were recommended. How much of that show is Farming On Ganymede?
