I guess Zuckerberg didn't see the movies.   The Matrix was a bad thing.

#Idiot  
We’ve spent the past decade handing Mark Zuckerberg our cherished memories, beloved photographs and intimate details of our day to day lives. But that’s not enough for the social media …

How Hillary's shills in the media do the dirty work:

[Sanders] pointed to one member of the press in the audience, but Alcindor appears to have jumped in with a question. Sanders attempted to cut her off, saying “excuse me” several times.

But Alcindor continued.

“What do you say to women that say you staying in the race is sexist because it could get in the way of what could be the first female president?"

I wish he would have said, " I say they are a bunch of fucking morons. Next question."
A New York Times reporter asked Bernie Sanders on Monday if it is sexist for him to continue running for president against what could be the nation's first female president in Hillary Clinton. [dcq

And everyone was so concerned about Trump welching on debt.
But there will be opposition from bondholders, who want to protect their investments.

There is no right to not be offended

This is getting out of fucking control. Nothing but a straight up attack on free speech and enactment of thought crime. It will not end well if allowed to continue. I am in favor of persecuting any politician or bureaucrat who would try to enforce (or even propose) this thought control tyranny. I'm thinking public hangings would be too good.  Tar and feathers, maybe. Then hanging.

Any business which complies with this madness are morons and deserve to lose their livelihood as a result . Mass civil disobedience is the correct response. The government can only enforce this bullshit on a willing population. 

As with any law, no matter how minor, if you resist the government can and will kill you. Just ask the guy selling single cigarettes in NYC.

It goes like this:

First, the government fines me for not calling some social miscreant "ze" (Note that I am not opposed to folks choosing to be social miscreants if they want, only the government forcing me to use certain words and provide special rules and special exceptions for the miscreants comfort and pleasure.)

Then, I refuse to pay the fine because I firmly believe it is  totally bullshit. I most likely believe it is bullshit more than a TG man believes he is a women.

Next, the government sends the police to take me to jail for refusing to pay the fine. I resist because it is a violation of my civil rights as a US citizen and as a human being.

Finally, because I am resisting. the police  pull their weapons and shoot me, or gang tackle me and choke me to death, or wrestle me into a police van without seatbelts and toss me around in the back until I am broken and bloody with a crushed skull.

If you think any of this is far-fetched, you don't watch the news.

The Appearance of Impropriety

80,000 Secret files?  No matter what, something is being hidden  whether it's Saudi treachery or FBI incompetence or something far worse. Also, how many other documents relating to the 9/11 investigation are secret and kept hidden away? No wonder there are so  many conspiracy theories.
The secret ‘28 pages’ are just the start. The FBI has another 80,000 classified documents, many of which deal with Saudi connections to the 9/11 terror plot.

Pretty bold words, but I'm sure Obama would have no problem with that.
Hossein Salami also says in speech aired on state TV that ‘Americans cannot make safe any part of the world’

Are flying cars closer than we think?

As I predicted some time ago, the much vaunted yet elusive flying car will come in the form of a drone. My reasoning was that if a drone can pick up a package and take it to a precise set of coordinates, why couldn't that "package" be a person. Clearly with FedEx, UPS, Ebay, Amazon, et al all working on drone delivery systems, this is where all the R&D is at.  It doesn't take much imagination to see this same technology being used to deliver people.
The nation’s first passenger-carrying drone manufacturing company is coming to Las Vegas. The Chinese company, EHang Inc. is developing a drone that is capable of carrying passengers.

Republicans Need Not Apply

One employee at a software firm declined to speak on the record, saying it would be a bad career move for a Google search of his name to turn up any Republican connection, let alone one with Mr. Trump.
There may be no love lost between Donald Trump and the tech world, but he is likely to need tech backers as his campaign turns to the general election.

Is the Pope stupid, or what?

This is rich, coming from someone whose entire life and the primary "mission" of his entire organization is devoted to exporting his brand of Christianity and righteousness to everywhere in the world. This very statement is an effort to export his "culture", if you will, to the West, of which I suppose the Vatican has conveniently excluded themselves.

What an embarrassment he must be Catholics everywhere. Morons like this do not help the cause  or viability of Christianity or the church. The synod ought to muzzle this guy.

#Pope   #Moron  
Pope Francis criticised Western powers for trying to export their own brand of democracy to countries such as Iraq and Libya without respecting indigenous political cultures, according to an interview published on Monday. Speaking to France's Roman Catholic newspaper, La Croix, Francis also said

This is very interesting.  The extent to which one's brain can accurately compute these "statistics" along with one's ability to suppress emotional bias would largely determine life success.

But more important I think than this sub conscious ability to compute statistics is our intrinsic ability for pattern recognition.  Failure to recognize basic patterns in our surroundings, especially anomalies,  will render even the best statistics engine moot.

For example, if while computing the best place to have lunch I walk in front of truck that's deviating from normal traffic patterns, my lunch decision is not so important.

What has always baffled me though, is why is it so hard to actuate all these wonderful brain capabilities into our consciousness.

Adam Kepecs, professor of neuroscience at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, said the subjective feeling of confidence is actually based on secret objective calculations performed by the brain.

Boundless Ego and sense of entitlement

And Trump is the one branded as the megalomaniac. Go figure.
Talk about raising the stakes: Hillary Clinton says the “whole world” is pulling for her to defeat Donald Trump in November’s election.

I love to surf in a kayak and I take a lot of photographs.

Other than that I have worked in the technology field for over 30 years, including sales, tech support, programmer, analyst, and engineer. Over the past 15 years I've specialized in building multi-tiered, distributed database systems and have consulted for some of the worlds largest corporations including, ahem, Enron, AIG, Sysco Foods, Shell Oil, Honeywell, McKinsey & Co, Aim Mgmt (now Invesco), Veritas Geophysical, Dynegy, Houston Industries, and a couple more I can't remember.

Every now and then I drop an F-Bomb. Sorry.
