Notelling

By | July 11, 2019

Do people not realize when you see a PR photo or movie with some actor looking really buff, those shots are generally taken under these conditions (even assuming they’re not photoshopped): They are generally very dehydrated. An easy way to improve muscle definition is to not drink enough water the day or two before and… Read More »

Assortative

By | July 11, 2019

When I say that modern liberals believe people should only meet by inhuman algorithmic match, I know a lot of you think that’s absurd. But they really do believe that: BUT HOW are you supposed to meet girls? Sign on to a website where women have consented to contact with people who want to ask… Read More »

Can’t Spell Prude Without Rude

American Airlines Forces Doctor to Wrap Herself in Blanket Because They Thought Her Romper Was Inappropriate. What’s weird is that all these outfits that airlines seem intent on being offended over seem really tame to me. I mean, I know we’re as prudish as we’ve been since the tail end of the 1950s, but it… Read More »

Transhuman

By | July 9, 2019

I don’t think the transhumanists and singularitians are wrong, exactly. Mainly their timescale is. They believe their envisioned post-human reverie will arrive in a generation or two while I think it’ll be 5,000 to possibly even a million years hence. Assuming humans survive that long at all, which right now I’d put at about 10%.… Read More »

Pellet

By | July 9, 2019

Was reading this article about alerting domestic abuse survivors if their abuser attempts to buy a gun. The gun in the article pictured is a CO2 pellet gun, not a firearm as such. Definitionally, firearms are weapons that produce their propulsive force chemically, not mechanically, thus this would be a type of air gun. Air… Read More »

Dead On

By | July 8, 2019

Found this article about Lake City, Florida (my hometown, incidentally) that paid after a ransomware attack. They are now going to shell out $60,000 a year for proper backup. I also wrote this post where I estimated the cost of said proper backup for a different but similar small town. This was my estimate. Cost… Read More »

Powerful

By | July 8, 2019

Really fucking annoyed with how horny leftist Twitter is for this “fact” that is completely misunderstood. 71% of emissions come from energy *produced by* 100 companies. There is NO UNIVERSE where those emissions don’t happen while consumer behavior stays the same. None. https://t.co/mspYIjcze6 — Miranda Ⓥ (@bunnysnack) July 5, 2019 Wow, this is powerful stupid.… Read More »

Working In

By | July 7, 2019

I’ve worked at huge companies, merely big companies, medium-size companies and small ones (where I work now). There is in the popular mind more prestige in working for large companies with recognizable names. It’s particularly true in the tech industry — my industry — but somewhat the case in any field. Having worked, though, at… Read More »

AB

By | July 6, 2019

Because I enjoyed Annalise Basso so much in the “Safe and Sound” episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, today I peeked at her IMDB page to see what else she’d appeared in. I found Cold, a show I’d never heard of. Turns out it was only on a short-lived network called Go90 that Verizon… Read More »
