Total Data Loss

By | March 18, 2019

People are always surprised and shocked when data is lost from some cloud service, either by negligence or intent. And I’m like, motherfucker what did you think was going to happen? They’re also thinking too small. VHS was how we’d preserve memories forever. Floppy disks were the gold standard. Blockbuster was ubiquitous. Sears invented shopping… Read More »

as a retrocomputerist, I'd like to applaud Microsoft for bringing back the core feeling of Windows 95, specifically that of having to reboot all the time, randomly. — foone (@Foone) March 18, 2019 Well, Win10 doesn’t crash all the time at least, but it’s about as reliable as a 1977 Ford Pinto in that it’s… Read More »

Censorship in Western societies winds up hitting left wingers harder than right wingers. Just understand the side-effects of what you're asking for. — Ian Welsh (@iwelsh) March 16, 2019 Shows just how clueless most of the left is. Foot-shooting is what they do best, though, isn’t it?

Calling

By | March 18, 2019

We have all these dystopian stories where people compete in contests of wits/skill to continue living and we don’t connect that to people performing their pain online to avert a death sentence via GoFundMe. The dystopia is calling from inside the house. https://t.co/H6hQANvH6q — Bree (& 🐕🐕) (@mostlybree) March 15, 2019 Indeed. Someone averred that… Read More »

Death of the calorie. The article is not that bad, as such articles go, but the diet advice that most people get truly is. But to clear one thing up, factually speaking, if you eat less than you burn you will lose weight. I know because I did it so don’t tell me anything else.… Read More »

Following this literal 🙈🙉🙊 advice is great for helping Rush Limbaugh get away with promoting the lie that this white supremecist was actually a leftwing eco-fascist https://t.co/2AaDQWHa5l — Nils Gilman (@nils_gilman) March 16, 2019 I’ve been completely astounded lately by the liberal “censor everything, report on nothing” approach to the Christchurch massacre.

Containment Policy

By | March 17, 2019

In terms of a generational divide, while Obama/Hoyer/Pelosi were fucking up foreclosure policy, @aoc was LIVING THROUGH A FORECLOSURE. You think they have different views of banks? Thank God for millennials, who see markets and commerce are always 100% politically constructed. — Matt Stoller (@matthewstoller) March 14, 2019 Exactly.

Like the chemical process of osmosis, migration is unstoppable. Wrong. It’s stoppable, it just depends on how monstrous you want to be do so.

Infectious

we’d have an amazing gdp if some enterprising startup invented infectious diabetes. https://t.co/Axk37OqEZq — Steve Randy Waldman (@interfluidity) March 16, 2019 Been done. It’s a mind virus and it’s called the Fat Acceptance movement.
