It's interesting, Google's censorship AI has twice in a row deleted something I posted. It's a link on the "behavioral sink" experiment, which points to the conclusion of imminent civilizational collapse.

Yeah, how unexpected: if you give people free money, they feel good, but are not more likely to work in order to get more. I'll tell you what they are more likely to: ask the state to give them more money.

I'm getting confused here. Are women strong, independent, better than men, invulnerable and kick everyone's ass, or are they poor defenseless victims of men everywhere and need to be protected by all sorts of laws, and are too fragile to face normal inquiry so they need to be simply believed? Honestly, this feminist roller-coaster of power fantasies and whiny victimhood is giving me a whiplash. We need the 19th century back because it all went downhill since then.

I think I have a pretty good idea of what Apple's problem is. I bought a Xiaomi Mi8 for my younger son today and had the opportunity to test it a bit to see how it works. In fact it's awesome. The screen is great, the build quality is as good as Apple or Samsung, it has geekbench multicore of 9000, 4GB ram and 64GB storage, and looks like and iPhone XS and a Samsung S9 had a baby. It's awesome, nothing wrong with it, and it costs 500 EUR. iPhone XS costs 1350 EUR. Sure, it's better, but it's 10% better, not 250% better. Mi8 is so good, you really need to be invested in Apple's ecosystem for it to make sense buying an iPhone. And honestly, why would a smartphone cost more than 500 EUR? That's how much we used to pay for them, and for iPads, but Apple and Samsung kept taking the prices up to the point where it no longer makes any sense whatsoever. Also, we're way past the times when Chinese Android phones were second-rate items. The modern Huawei and Xiaomi models look very high end, the material quality is top notch, and probably only the camera lags behind Apple and Samsung.

This article is nonsense. First of all, IMF treaty is completely obsolete today: you don't need ground based intermediary-ranged rockets to threaten targets in Europe. The Russians demonstrated how they can easily do it from the Caspian lake ships, they can do it with the Baltic fleet as well as the flying platforms. So threat level doesn't necessarily increase with the same weapons mounted on stationary ground launchers.
Second, the weapons themselves don't define the threat level. The political situation does. So essentially the American program of demonizing, threatening and encircling Russia is what's increasing the threat level.
Third, this doesn't necessarily have anything to do with Europe, it might all be about arming Taiwan with rockets that can reach mainland China with nukes.
Fourth, if it comes to the point where Europe is threatened by the intermediary nuclear-tipped rockets, it means it's global nuclear war, and Europe is fucked however you look at it, so again this doesn't increase the threat level.
Fifth, the intermediary-ranged nukes were never about threatening Europe, they were about shortening the reaction times in a first-strike scenario against Russia. Europe was never a target, it was a missile silo pointed at Moscow. So if you want to kill Russia in such a way that it can't retaliate, you first surround it with anti-missile defenses, so that you can shoot down anything they retaliate with, and then you bring in the short reaction time weapons, such as the nuclear-tipped stealthy cruise missiles which aim at the Russian command posts and nuclear sites. That's what the Americans seem to be doing, which means they are confident they can take out Russian submarines as well.

Google is notifying me that "Your Google+ account is going away on April 2, 2019.", which means I will have to find some other platform for notifications, to replace this.
Another good question is whether this will mean that I will have to find another platform for hosting my photos, if the service formerly known as Picasa stops working.
