Why isn’t Condoleezza Rice running for president? I can’t think of anyone more qualified except maybe, maybe, maybe, Hilarity Clinton. What a great presidential election farce…err…contest that would be in 2016.
Kids are playing a new game these days called “Clackers”. They deliberately jump in front of self-driven cars which slam on breaks. This causes a chain of following cars to do the same thing making a “clack clack clack” sound…
STEM confined thinking
Space is awesome! Isn’t it?
Ignore the starving
In case you are wondering where your flying car is, the money that could have developed that technology went into granite countertops and war instead.
Here is your chance to jump to the latest thing before it happens. Your smartphone sucks and, in desperation, phone manufacturers are pushing “wearables”. Bah I say! I don’t want to be encumbered by anything. As I travel about, I just need my computing (including continuous biomonitoring) there. Always there, always working in my favor.
Maybe we can hack the NSA network to implement it!
The simulations are indeed defective but will eventually achieve perfection. They exist because God Inc. is trying to create a big bang that results in a perfect universe.
In this case, the simulations exist simultaneously and can be considered as membranes.
The unfortunate consequence is we live in an imperfect universe because we don’t exist in the perfect universe which is perfectly homogenous. As the Buddha said, “Life is suffering.” Imperfection is why.
There is a heavy bronze plaque that says “This wilderness is dedicated to E.K. Le Blond”
Is this a patent by the same E.K.?
The simulation is defective. That’s why the simulations have many iterations. Real souls persist through the iterations. “Simulonic Souls”(tm) experience intermittent conscious relevant to the current simulation only.
Apparently elephants scream something that can be translated as “Humans” while running away from threatening homo sapiens.
African elephants make a specific alarm call in response to the danger of humans, according to a new study of wild elephants in Kenya.
Al Jazeera certain has interesting articles:
The human rights industry does a lot of noble work around the world. And yet many of the field’s most prominent figures and institutions have lately taken to vocally endorsing acts of war. Where does this impulse come from? On what grounds is it justified? And how’s the hawkish stance working out, given a decade of strategic and humanitarian debacles for Washington and its allies?
Nice report on income disparity:
This massive concentration of economic resources in the hands of fewer people presents a real threat to inclusive political and economic systems, and compounds other inequalities – such as those between women and men. Left unchecked, political institutions are undermined and governments overwhelmingly serve the interests of economic elites – to the detriment of ordinary people.
