  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    BTW, did anyone else here get mysteriously subscribed to Narendra Modi's official government Hindu nationalism newsletter today? (2019/11/11) [0] Not a fan[1], more of a Lord Shiva type myself. Did have some amusement today looking at lists of divine weapons,...

    There was that observatory in New Mexico the FBI closed… That solar observatory shutdown[0] was necessary to prevent panic!!! They were concerned that it had captured the transit of a large alien spacecraft[2] and had to be ready to scrub...

    It's possible that it takes two nutters. There has been flux and uncertainty related to outsider knowledge of nuclear command and control in Pakistan since they developed weapons. This piece is about tactical nuclear weapons but I one hopes that...

    What sleepingroutine is trying to do to you is called "false moral equivalence". Don't fall for it, force him to stay on point. I'm quite aware of the techniques; been watching the details of their deployment here with interest. My...

    This caught my eye: Not to talk about Russian-language media projects, generously funded by runaway Russian oligarchs, Ukrainian oligarchs and other actors of "free will" like terrorists, minorities and mentally unstable. Bold mine. A holdover attitude from the Soviet Union...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I actually am offended by Paula White's appointment, and by the broader Evangelical support for DJT justified by ugly scriptural contortions. [1] This piece is OK; they managed to find some discomfort in the White House about her appointment: 'You're...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    All seem improbable, as the House will simply refuse to follow & do everything to stop him. One possible play is attempting to cancel the results of the 2020 election (on a state-by-state basis; some states are controlled by party-before-country...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Well this made me smile. Alysssa Milano was my favorite witch on the (campy) US TV series "Charmed"; she has 3.7M followers and this tweet is seeing a lot of action. I shit you not. This is Trump’s “faith advisor.”...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Readable piece on the global economic virtues of open human migration, with some references (e.g. [1]). Open Borders Are a Trillion-Dollar Idea - Tearing down all barriers to migration isn’t crazy—it’s an opportunity for a global boom. (Foreign Policy, Bryan...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I was not seriously proposing that Texas should or would secede from the USA. I've been considering the amusing (hypothetica! :-) conspiracy possibility that D.J. Trump is moving from New York to Florida not just because he wants to...

    Like clockwork, DJT continues to offend. Paula White, Trump’s Personal Pastor, Joins the White House (Jeremy W. Peters and Maggie Haberman, Oct. 31, 2019) Ms. White will work in the Office of Public Liaison, the official said, which is the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    That makes more sense than the Underpants Gnomes story. The Underpants Gnomes' theft of underpants would have supplied DNA to match against the sample(s) taken when he was a prisoner, to confirm his identity before the large-scale assassination operation proceeded,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The script writers aren’t even trying anymore. I assume that you mean the ref to the Underpants Gnomes Well, yeah, but they made you laugh, right? --- (more seriously) Not clear from reports how they know that it was Al-Baghdadi,...

    FWIW firefox does have a sort of task manager, in about:performance Chrome's task manager is in the vertical "..." menu upper right, More tools Both can be helpful. (My current script blocking loadout on firefox includes NoScript, UBlock Origin, Privacy...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    That video, well any comment from me would be similar to yours. However, it's talking about new variants of classic American grift/con. (Americans elected a con-man as President! Those same Americans, many of them, are highly valued as gullible targets...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Called the RESPONSE act. Also at The Guardian, a day earlier, and mentioned in that piece: Under digital surveillance: how American schools spy on millions of kids - Fueled by fears of school shootings, the market has grown rapidly for...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    But I'm not familiar with any literature about the idea that *massed* human brain activity affects anything. Yeah, that's the bit that makes me want to read the paper that EC noticed. (e.g. worship is one such activity.) I'd...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    ...but did not dare express publicly while I was working in academia, is that a lot of otherwise explained or highly implausible phenomena fall into place if you postulate that massed human belief can affect the laws of physics, or...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    If it is a scheme, it's a clever scheme. I don't think Trump is personally involved because this is not the kind of scheme someone dumber than a box of broken hammers would come up with. Yeah. The really interesting...

    This a more believable part of the script, derivative (cough) but still. "Trump Chaos Trades" “There Is Definite Hanky-Panky Going On”: The Fantastically Profitable Mystery of the Trump Chaos Trades - The president’s talk can move markets—and it’s made some...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    We're talking past each other and (I think) actually agreeing, though I confess to being too shallow in reading your comment, sorry about that. I was saying that we (the non-politicians) have levers/skills that can be used to affect (effectorize?)...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    General interest (especially Greg and other skeptics), not too long, New Yorker piece: How Derren Brown Remade Mind Reading for Skeptics - The mentalist’s manipulation techniques give people too sophisticated to believe in the paranormal something quasi-scientific to hang on...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    People like me that have a "you're an idiot" reaction then say "you can observe this reality by looking out the window right now"... we have no place in the policy negotiation process. In a democracy or even a partial...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Still annoyed at Erwin's rather wordy and unconvincing argument for the bountiful goodness of homogeneity of mind types. [0] There's open plan, and there's open plan where noise is the enforced social norm. The actual experimental studies have falsified the...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    never have understood this tendency for mildly broken people to assert that their particular brokenness is a valuable mark of difference. The level of comorbidity tends to argue for the malfunction hypotheses... Anyways, I hope that didn't offend. Probably it...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    It was rarely a problem, because of that, and that I had learnt how to handle you aliens by the time it ceased to be true! Thank you for being forceful about this. Very much appreciated. The "Psychology Today" piece...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Those little twitches & inclinations, that the perpetrator almost certainly does not know or realise they are "displaying" speak volumes IF/WHEN one starts to notice them.... Try working on seeing rapid facial microexpressions; ping people with ideas/language/etc, and look for...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    American Citizen with American passport here. I was once (a few decades ago) on entry taken to a room and interrogated by 2-3 men for what seemed like 10 minutes at the time (as currently remembered). Just why are you...
