Safe and Sound

By | February 28, 2018

Wow. Some thought went into this episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. There is actual real UX design here as it could work in the real world for augmented reality, not just the thoughtless nods that most TV shows make. There’s also strong commentary on the privatization of schools and how that will allow… Read More »

Mozilla Removes Individual Cookie Management in Firefox 60. What a joke of a browser. As a Slashdot commenter said: Mozilla just keeps thinking of new ways to make Firefox worse. As another noted: When is Mozilla going to realize that Firefox got popular because of developers and power users and the fact that they keep… Read More »

Gravitron

By | February 27, 2018

Does no one check stuff like this? This curvature of spacetime by objects in motion is felt as gravity. Nope. This has nothing to do with motion. Motionless (from whose perspective, anyway?) objects still curve space-time. Perhaps he is conflating Einstein’s Equivalence Principle with gravity? One of the phenomena predicted by the general theory is… Read More »

The Modern Consensus is Moronic

By | February 26, 2018

Very much against the modern liberal prudish grain, I think on net is to most people’s benefit to date older people when they are 18-25. I’m not talking about someone 18 dating someone 50. I mean, someone 20 dating someone 30 or 35. And yep, I mean for men and women. I’m very glad I… Read More »

Fields Forever

Remember: The past was not some elysian experience. It was fairly terrible, with some exceptions, for most people most of the time.

Obama Blame

By | February 24, 2018

I wish someone had gone after the criminals who caused the financial crisis with the ferocity and ruthlessness that Mueller is pursuing the Trump lackeys and hangers-on. Yeah, I am sure many if not most of those guys were doing illegal things. But we let and are letting far worse criminals get away scot free… Read More »

French Wrench

By | February 24, 2018

Yes, America is a pretty racist place. At the same time, many Americans hold some nebulous idea that all of Europe is some mystical unracist nirvana. I know the most about the culture of France, and I can tell you that a black man named Barack Hussein Obama (or anything similar) would never be elected… Read More »

Early I

By | February 24, 2018

I don’t get nostalgic for much, but I do miss the early public internet (1994-2000ish or so). It was superior in almost every way. Not yet completely dominated by commercial interests, with a sense of wild freedom and with no barriers, it was a haven rather than the prison of attention and surveillance it has… Read More »

Throwback

By | February 23, 2018

This is the first version of the “Dreams” video that was on MTV. I know because I watched it the first time it was ever aired. On YouTube, the third video is erroneously labeled the original, but the one below was it. You can tell because it’s obvious they literally spent tens of dollars on… Read More »
