I wonder how much Freedom, Privacy & Choice users are willing to sacrifice for Convenience.
I wonder about incremental constriction of Options a user may be presented in essentially every facet of life, by the Assistant Allowing/Denying certain Options.
Supermarket-
Assistant:"You need to buy milk. Do you want nonfat or low fat?"
You:"I want whole milk."
Assistant:"Sorry. Not an option based on your last week's non-compliance with your exercise & dietary goals."

Technology is what holds the real promise to be the ultimate jail of freedom. Google is just one player with a few pieces. I think we'll see those who embrace technology, experience freedoms undreamed of... and those who don't will be content in their sandpits like those who came before them.

This incredible software engineer, Margaret Hamilton, wrote this stack of computer code, by hand, for the Apollo program, which landed Americans on the Moon. Successfully. Repeatedly.
I salute her & her Herculean feat.

"Any fourth grade student of history knows that Socialism has never worked any time or any place it has been tried. Obama, with the Democratic Party, is either an Idiot, or is deliberately trying to destroy his nation's economy."
~ Vladimir Putin

Mr. Putin. Check out Bernie Sanders. He makes Obama seem like Adam Smith (author of "Wealth of Nations") by comparison.

The amazing thing about this "Wall of Sound" setup, is that this photo only shows ⅓ of the whole system. There's another 70 foot stack on the right side of the stage, and an enormous half-cylindrical cluster of speakers straddling the 2 stacks above the double drum set.
Sheer acoustic volume was not the primary purpose of this gargantuan set up.
Every string of each guitar & every drum had its own dedicated amplifier and bank of speakers, allowing different notes to come from different directions.
It was designed to project High Fidelity, distortion-free, 3D sound to ¼ mile, and even sound decent from ½ mile.
Weighing 75 tons, the stage set up was laborious, time consuming and cumbersome to assemble at a new venue every night.
After a year or 2, the Wall of Sound was retired

Breaking News, a bit late for International Women's Day. In Saudi Arabia, a panel of scientists concluded that women are, in fact, Mammals! However, they fall short of being actually Human.
Muslim "science".
 
Saudi Arabia: Panel of Scientists admits Women are Mammals, yet 'Not Human' - 
Riyadh | In an unprecedented ruling, a panel of Saudi scientists has concluded that women are actually mammals, granting them the same rights as other mammal species such as camels, dromedaries and even goats. The verdict, which fell just hours before the International Women's Day, is consider

I used to chase total solar Eclipses.
Totality is a spectacle that I lack the vocabulary to describe properly.
Why do I travel great lengths to see them?
"I come to bear witness to the Sun in it's hour of darkness"
 
Heads Up! Total solar eclipse coming next week to Asia and the Pacific!
A total eclipse of the sun will turn day into night over portions of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean next week.
Indonesia will get the best view Wednesday, especially in central portions of Borneo and Sumatra. Most of the solar eclipse will be over the open ocean of the Pacific.

A man walks into a local Greek tailor shop with a pair of torn trousers in his hands.
Upon greeting the tailor, the tailor asks:
"Euripides?"
The man says: "Yes! Eumenides?"
The tailor responds "Yes! Of course."
And they bid each other adieu.

I've posted & commented for over a year that the only Boots-on-Ground fighting alongside the Kurds were Dutch, Danish & German Bikers.
The only recent news here is that the government of the Netherlands ruled that they are not committing any crime by doing so.

In America a few years ago, Muslims planned a "Million Muslim March" in Washington DC.
2 Million Bikers from all over the US rallied & rode to DC, mostly just peacefully riding in circles around the Capitol, carrying American flags. There was no confrontation.
Only 58 Muslims showed up.
I'm proud of the Bikers for doing that. Their mere Presence was an intimidating display of strength in numbers & Patriotism.
Biker gangs have a code of honor, usually written in their Charter, that if you mess with One, you mess with All. That kind of coherence is needed for all Americans.

My ears hurt when I heard some of these.
A good, concise summary of what I couldn't bear to sit through in it's entirety.
Here are the top ten lies in President Barack Obama final State of the Union address, in chronological order.

My regular Sunday evening place for supper & drinks. Jose, the head bartender, knows me by name and automatically pours my choice of drinks as soon as I walk in. Very friendly & an opportunity to practice my Spanish. Despite my sensitivity to spicy foods after gall bladder surgery, there's plenty of choice on the menu that I can eat.
