You keep switching back and forth between the word anonymity and privacy like they are the same thing, and they are not. "Can you make yodeling anonymous?" Yes. Wear camoflage and use evasive maneuvers to prevent detection. (Tor at coffee shops, move between coffee shops.) Can you make yodeling private? Yes, using code such as a book cypher, a yodel could be private. (Crypto) Can it be both? Yes, by yodeling in an isolated area, (private network) you can yodel with only authorized yodeling card holders. Can these protective measures be compromised? Of course they can. All security is flawed. What you are doing is trying to prove that the sky is green. You can philosophize and make witty arguments all day long, and be absolutely correct in everything you say from a phylosophical and theoretical standpoint. Yet at the end of the day, billions of people look up at the sky and see that it is, in fact, blue, and have years of practical application behind them backing up that fact.

tor /= privacy, privacy /= anonymity, anonymity /= privacy. tor = anonymity. vpn = privacy. -thegrugq

You need to watch OPSEC: Because Jail is for wuftpd.

The buff to Nazeebo's lvl 1 talent is to Blood ritual. The lvl 1 talent everyone gets is death ritual. Just for the record, death ritual is still the winner. They're trying to get people to use different builds, and it's just not working.

Great guide! Does this info carry over to armor and accessories? Or is it just weapons?

Another great video! Thanks for sharing. Please do an episode specifically about radiation. It's not something we have to deal with in America, yet.

I love how slowly your camera shifts focus. Quick focus shifts fuck with my equilibrium.

I understand your reservations about tor, for a lot of it, I agree. Yes, all of these attacks work, and there have been POCs demonstrated at just about every hackerCON. That being said, there are ways to mitigate the attacks as well. Yes, the NSA can control a large portion of nodes. This attack was actually used at one point. But, all node ip addresses are public, and data about the network is analyzed constantly. torProject is always monitoring for malicious nodes, and they are flagged and removed from the network if anything shady is noticed.

The browser hack shut down several kiddy porn sites as well as the silk road. More power to them. The vulnerability was patched. Not to say that there isn't another 0day out there, or that a user could change the settings and make themselves vulerable by enabling javascript or other insecure options. One thing about government grade malware that was little known until the hacking team hack a couple months ago: It detects if it is installed on a virtual machine, and if it is, deletes itself. This is to prevent it from being analyzed, and thus be detected by antivirus software. Just so happens, whonix is designed to be run in a virtual machine. Even if you do go somewhere and get spyware installed, it's likely going to delete itself. If it doesn't delete itself, the virtual machine is sandboxed, and prevents malware from accessing the harddrive or hardware IDs or host names, or local wifi networks, or any other anonymity breaking data from the physical device. Further, it mitigates the final attack you were worried about, where the gateway and exit nodes are compromised to deanonymize the user, because you run your gateway on your own machine.

Again, no system is 100% secure. Ultimately, the usual downfall of one's anonymity is your own actions, like checking personal social media accounts, analyzing typing style, ordering something from silk road, using the same user name on tor that you use in clearnet. Remember, anonymity does not equal privacy. While for the most part, your actions cannot be traced back to you unless you make a mistake, YOU MUST ASSUME THAT EVERYTHING YOU DO IS PUBLIC AND CAN BE MONITORED. Tor was designed to protect anonymity, not privacy, and using it at a coffee shop to encrypt your data is not what it was designed to do. That's the purpose of a VPN.

None of these are reasons why bernie sanders will become president. These are just ideas that you agree with. Doesn't change the fact that he's failing in the polls, and has less than half a chance at beating hillary in the primary.

There's a way to harden the Ni200 wire. Take a length of it, put one end in a drill, and grab the other end with pliers. Run the drill slowly for about 20 seconds. Not only will this harden the wire, it will also straighten it. I know, this is a bit late, but if you've still got some laying around, give it a shot.

So what, you put the camera on a helium baloon?

These guys are taking advantage of peoples ignorance. Reuleaux RX200, 199$. 58$ online. Sigelei Fuchai, 150$. 58$ online. I understand retail needs a markup, but a 400% mark up is just plain wrong. Stay the hell away from this place.
