WTF? So this is a "grassroots" pro-censorship movement? I was a little ashamed it took me till 2018 to nuke my reddit account, but now I feel ahead of the curve.

Oh man, someone should develop a K.I.T.T Tesla upgrade. A red LED strip for the front bumper and a software patch with William Daniels voice for navigation and snarky quips. Aaaaaand nevermind, someone did it 10 years ago.

On to my next million dollar idea: an 80's style PSA to play on the dashboard infotainment center while you're auto-driven off to the precinct.

These are your Miranda Rights, followed by paid advertisements for local attorneys. Your arrest is being recorded & livestreamed in accordance with your automakers' TOS

"The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense..." Buckminster Fuller by EndlessSunflowers in WayOfTheBern

[–]DrStrangelove 5 insightful - 1 funny5 insightful - 0 funny6 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

"Fuller used a portmanteau of the words dynamic, maximum, and tension to arrive at the term Dymaxion."

The Dymaxion car and Dymaxion house.

The car had 3 wheels, a top speed of 128mph, and 36mpg fuel efficiency. Plus, it looked like an art-deco rocket ship. The house was a modular, pre-fab, energy efficient tensile structure designed for mass production based on war effort aircraft manufacturing.

Fuller was way ahead of his time and a hero of 20th century innovation in service of humanity. Buckminster is also a great middle name.

THC is by far my favorite podcast, and this episode is REALLY out-there in the best way possible. I've always considered the "Mandela effect" a pretty lazy theory exploiting the weakness of human memory in the face of the information age, but this one kinda made me rethink my assumptions. Were Terence Mckenna and the Mayan calendar on to something? Is CERN in on it? Are we all in a simulation or just me? Not saying any of this is real, but I can't recall ever hearing about the Maned Wolf, Moon Museum, or Rainbow Mountains of China until today.

You Cannot Trust Patreon - Sargon of Akkad (Purged) by DrStrangelove in censorship

Yikes, I had no idea Saidit utilized patreon until I saw your comment. To be honest my immediate, admittedly paranoid reaction was to delete the post out of concern for the site. Then, I didn't. That my first thought was to self-censor out of fear of reprisal precisely exemplifies the chilling effect that online censorship and deplatforming is having on public discourse. I love Saidit. What you and D3rr have created is awesome. It is, in my humble opinion, a bright shining beacon of hope for what the internet was supposed to be. Bitcoins are on the way.

Also FWIW, may I suggest looking into subscribestar? I know nothing about them other than a number of alt. media content creators have moved to them recently as an alternative fundraising platform.

I can totally see a near-future where traffic stops are made by police remotely commandeering self-driving cars. Light'em up, lock the doors, and pull them over or drive them straight to jail.

This is consistent with a new theory of consciousness being advocated by physicist Sir Roger Penrose and Dr. Stuart Hameroff. Penrose and Hameroff suggest that consciousness is something applied to the brain, not generated by it.

Came to the comments to mention Hammeroff. He's an anesthesiologist who thinks consciousness arises out of the quantum states of microtubules within the neuron. Basically, the brain is more a quantum antenna than a computer. Really fascinating stuff, and interesting that it comes from a guy who's an expert in turning consciousness off (and hopefully back on again).

Oregon Public Broadcasting did a short segment on the Polybius arcade story about a year ago. I'll link if I can find it. Their conclusion was it had been a total urban legend, but that's exactly what THEY would want you to think isn't it? Some claim there is still a ROM of the game floating around somewhere on the dark web.

Little late to the party, but I wanted to add my experience. I received the alert on my current android phone as expected, but it also came through on an old iphone 4 that was not connected to wifi, had no simcard, no icloud, and no service. Interesting?
