Paving the roads with solar panels is a TERRIBLE idea. See Thunderf00t's videos on all the ways it fails miserably. Ultimately all variants are scams.

Putting solar panels beside roadways is as good an idea as anywhere, accessible to maintenance, raised high or on the ground, for shade in hot climates, etc. Really there's nowhere so short of land that we need to reclaim roads.

After seeing that it made me think that my brain on acid and this computer's imagination were eerily similar.

This isn't even funny much less informative. How does it have so many votes?

FYI Detroit had riots in 1943 and 1967/8 and some before that too. The 43 riot is lesser known because there was the WWII distraction from the racial exploitation of the men at home.

Further, it would be VERY easy to do an inverse with tourist bureau images of Detroit and the dumps of EurAsia.

You should never centralize all your eggs or solar panels in one basket. You spread it out across several states. To do otherwise is folly.

Also, West Texas alone has enough wind to power 1/2 of North America - but "they" don't want to build the connecting infrastructure. We can't be allowed too much security nor efficiency.

This is not really true, but a common excuse. Storage is not necessary, routing is. The "smart grid" was never built, other than to spy on us. They don't want solutions. Period.

There are an abundance of authentic solutions that could be implemented everywhere. Ireland is leading the way with some great submersible turbines that are nothing new except that they are implementing the old idea and refining, finessing and optimizing it.

The ocean currents are perpetual.

Every great river is perpetual.

Niagra Falls is just one location of many but that same St. Lawrence Seaway flows a long fucking way. The Detroit River wraps around Windsor, "Motor City Canada" and we could have countless turbines in the water - one for each person, much like automobiles - but "they" want the centralized power paradigm limited and under their full spectrum dominance.

IMO, everyone should have a turbine. And, everyone should have a home server, like any of the other home appliances. And, everyone should have a hydroponic garden. Done right they don't take much space at all. But our system is for creating obedient worker/servants, not independent individuals in strong communities.

And then there's thorium... Wherever there's mining there should be thorium extraction.

"Art" is in the eye of the beholder. I took an artful dump today. Wanna photo?

Nonetheless, selling "art" is much harder than just calling it art. And you can do a lot of things artfully, like plumbing or laying bricks, you can make an art of coding, art is how you live. There are many fine arts to preparing food.

I didn't ask whether it was art or not.

I asked if it was "art", as in fine art actually belonging in gallery, or one of those culinary arts of preparing food? (In this case, banal banana food, held in place with duct tape - juxtaposed in the luxurious setting.)

The "vapid" was bonus.

I wouldn't call it a "total lack of competence" but the intentional weaponization of immigrants utilized by the ruling class to distract from their corrupt systemic unfairness status quo is most certainly troublesome. Female cops are also troublesome. Male cops are also troublesome. I can't decide who's side I'm on - the anti-authoritarian who's home country is likely bombed into oblivion and/or economically strangled by Western capitalism - or the anti-vandal enforcement.

As for that bikini cop - I changed my mind - I'm glad I never got into role playing or wrestling with any of my exes.

(With the exception of the one and only time, in 2001, Austin, Texas - I oil-wrestled 2 bald punk chicks in thongs at the same time. One was a part time fling, and the other soon after became a part time fling, and a third ex-fling said that my boner kept popping out of my boxers, though I'm not sure that's true or even if I had a woody at the time. I'm a peace loving man and I got coerced into doing it, with help of booze and/or drugs. They were more than a handful. It was the fight of my life. I should have let them win but they got very serious very quickly, so... Fucking good times. Except for the oil and grass and dirt that got on the tarp.)

CIA as Organized Crime by Douglas Valentine = A+++

The book outlines how the CIA has 2 criteria for all operations: 1) always collect more power/control by any means 2) always have plausible deniability. It also explains how The Phoenix Program (also another of his books) was perfected in Vietnam, then Iraq, and now Homeland Security will apply all these evil methods domestically.

I say, CIA are sick fucks.

I used to love The Daily Show, Colbert Report (never missed a show), Real Time, and Oliver's show.

By the time Oliver attacked Jill Stein, my last straw, I was done with all of them and haven't bothered since.

Disney Star Wars' Failures Blamed on Fans by Vigte in Movies

Hollywood is terribly spread thin with a million choices of channels, and series, and streams, and games, and all of them shit, and all of them distracting us from learning inconvenient truths and rising up against the ruling class. So we just bitch and keep changing the channels seeking the next fix for our well-trained addiction to mindless hypnosis and perpetual propaganda enforcing "authority" tropes. (Most shows are about cops, justice, investigations, etc - as if we have a fair system - and even if they are bumbling idiots they still have the power while everyone else is another class. Even Dowton Abbey pushes the love-your-caste trope.)

I'm a professional animator, not a professional writer, but I'm (excruciatingly slowly) developing my own content and am realizing that good writing is most definitely not easy - but it's also not that difficult if you have proper strong fundamental guidelines in place. (Abiding them is the hard part.) And there are even some seemingly over-complicated (not cheap) screenwriting tools available that could be applied to bring all those crappy writers back in line. These tools require the extra time and effort of inputting all the extra data - but in the end you can track every character, its arcs, the intensity of scenes, etc etc etc and you can find the glaring gaps that need filling to be good content and/or fine-tune tweak the formulae for maximal quality. Further, all this extra data input and analysis could be handled by interns or whatever - so really it wouldn't be that much of an extra expense.

I've not missed a Nerdrotic episode since before Game Of Thrones season 8, though I can't do all the long Live Streams. I'd be happier if he kept them shorter and to the point and less repetitive and with less limited political criticism. On the plus side he usually shares the latest news and drama going on in the corporate media and media critic communities I'm generally interested in and I can follow up if I want more. Beyond Nerdrotic, RedLetterMedia, and a few others I have no need for more pop culture news.

Excellent fluffy pseudo-philosophy feel good book. Along with "The Tao Of Pooh".

I have the vinyl album of "Johathan Livingston Seagull" as read by Sir Richard Harris.

I just found out it's on YouTube too... https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Jonathan+Livingston+Seagull+Richard+Harris

I'm flattered.

Favourite books is a whole can of whupass worms, not unlike trying to pick your favourite movie, YouTuber, musician, song, album, etc. Or even your favourite genre.

Many, but not all of my favourite mass media propaganda and/or criticisms and analysis of politics are within these Truther Top 20 lists (often with more than just 20), so for a deep state, spy craft, history and nonfiction list: https://infogalactic.com/info/Truther_Top_20_Books_In_Nonfiction (My /s/TrutherTop20s efforts to engage and make these lists more interactive and participatory has stalled.)

I have too many singular favourite books and many favourite authors that range from excellent to execrable. So to narrow it down further, ultimately these are my 5 favourite authors consistently on-target (in alphabetical order):

Richard Brautigan, last of the beats. My fave book by him by far is "In Watermellon Sugar". It's very weird and an acquired taste. I've always wanted to animate it. I think John Malcovich owns the rights. I wrote a last chapter (twice) that wraps up the book nicely, if you want a nice Hollywood ending. The Wayback Machine says it archived it but it didn't. I can upload it to Reddit where there must be a Brautigan club. If anyone is interested.

Douglas Coupland, best selling Canadian author, designer, sculptor. I couldn't pick a favourite. I have all of his books but the last one or two, and I still need to finish a couple that I do have. On my wedding day, 2001-01-11 (nine months before...), I met him in NYC after he did a reading. He though I should be doing a honeymoon thing.

Alexandre Dumas, master craftsman of period drama and swashbuckling. Revenge should never be as delicious as it was in "The Count Of Monte Cristo". His other popular and lesser known works are terrific too.

Hermann Hesse, classic and deep. I took Zen Buddhism in University so I already knew "Siddhartha" when I read it, but I still consider it top notch above many other good ones, but my favourite is "Steppenwolf". I really should read it again and to see how much I may have evolved since.

Neal Stephenson, epic visionary, heavy and solid. "The Diamond Age: or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer" is the one that sticks in my head the most for some reason, followed closely by "Cryptonomicon". All of his work is top notch, from eco-activism to cyberpunk to encryption history. (If my /s/BittersweetSeeds story could be half as good as one of his, I'd be very accomplished indeed.)

Thinking outside the box... Decriminalize child porn? by JasonCarswell in pedogate

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I totally concur. Child porn has been weaponized.

By decriminalizing it, it would de-fang the authorities from excessive abuse (ie. prison) - but they would still have the option to frame you, smear you, investigate you and your finances, etc etc etc - which they can already do. And, if making or selling CP was still illegal they could charge you with that, rightly or wrongly, if they wanted you in prison.

So not much would changed, really in these regards - except it would focus punishment on the performer and media maker evil doers, not the media holders and investigators.

Bitchute Needs Our Help by JasonCarswell in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yes. For sure.

One and a half more thing/s occurred to me...

Another way BitChute could share the load, in addition to actually fixing their WebTorrent, would be embracing IPFS to confirm valid files that would not necessarily need to be shared via WebTorrent. The other half is that this is just simply more decentralization - and if BitChute were to embrace decentralization I'm quite sure it would lighten their load and get more support, both financially and with the code - if they were to lead the way. Honestly I don't understand any new platforms portending to be free that don't embrace decentralization to the max. (Open source is another important matter altogether entangled in "intellectual property".)

One other thing I'd like to see, and not exclusively on BitChute...

AdSense dominates online advertising. There are many smaller competitors. I'd like to see an ethical and freedom embracing alternative ad-service emerge with relevant well targeted ads.

Well targeted means not advertising feminine products to middle aged men, etc. Better still, advertising to niche audiences for maximum effect. For example, a Goth fashion brand would be wasting advertising to general audiences - yet YouTube insists on keeping it general (for maximum centralized power).

Re: COPPA / not recording children's data on YouTube... Might it be worth making child-friendly anti-establishment content to (allegedly) prevent YouTube from recording the audience's data?

So, are you saying that YouTube thinks children shouldn't be educated about Anarchy, Brainwashing, Corruption, Deception, Economics, Fairness, Geoengineering, History, Independence, Justice, Knowledge, Liberty, Manipulation, NGOs, Organics, Propaganda, Q-Anon, Revolution, Solutions, Truth, UBI, Vaccines, Whistleblowers, Xenophobia, Yiddish, or Zen Buddhism?

In grade 9 we studied the elections here in Windsor Ontario. I even went to my local ward's young Rick Limoges and interviewed him. A decade later I was a local cable channel cameraman, including live broadcasts City Hall meetings, including Rick. Now, 25 years after that, he's still politically active here. I wouldn't have remembered or cared except for that project when I was 13 - the YouTube cut-off age of "children".

Well, yes, of course they are all controlled by the same puppet masters. Yet there used be a much more clear difference between "capitalism" and "communism" in that the businesses were directed by executives or government. Now China and Russia are more capitalist than ever and USA has less freedoms than ever. Now all of them are totalitarian corporatocracies (government + business = fascism), competing and/or pretending to, on many many levels. If there's little distinction now, there will be less in the future and the puppet masters won't need the difference. Just as China doesn't need political parties now.

I agree 100%.

Before they were using the data to sell, share, etc. Now it will be in secret.

In 5 or 10 or 20 years they will finally admit what all the rumours and leaks have been alluding to - and by then the totalitarian corporatocracy of capitalist and communist extremists will be completely blurred and a lower priority than mere survival after the Second Civil War and Great Vaccine "Accident" or whatever.

Jordan Peterson's "free speech" Thinkspot is a subscription-based private club/cult platform (ignoring abundant alternatives like SaidIt, Mastodon, Minds, Steemit, etc.) cloistered away from criticisms and challenges. Cowardly raising his rates he escaped a socialism debate with prof Richard Wolff. by JasonCarswell in JordanPeterson

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yes and no. Cost effective - but at what costs?

A competitor may manufacture in China cheaply, then in the USA no one has jobs to afford the goods. Outsourcing is bad long term economics. Further, that competitor must ship the goods, polluting the Earth, etc. Those goods have no intellectual property protections either (though that's a scam on a whole other level) and could "feed" the competitor's competition who will only deal with Walmart or Amazon and can't ever be beat. If you're trying to make a buck at any expense, then sure, get while you can and fuck everyone else - like a game of Monopoly. Then your forests look like Haiti where no trees remain because everyone needed firewood and no one cared for the commons or community.

So if co-ops were such a great solution they would be more widely used regardless of "promotion" in movies and TV.

I'm not saying they are promoted, rather there is a disturbing Dynamic Silence on the matter. Intentional NON-promotion and suppression. There are an abundance of concepts that are intentionally suppressed by "mainstream" corporate media. You have to admit that a LOT of media and government and corporations lie to us a LOT. Once you admit that, then EVERYTHING is then open for skepticism, analysis, criticism, and triangulation on what you find to be true.

Thanks for the links. I'm skeptical of most economists and "business" experts. All the games are all rigged by the select few in their secret societies, private boardrooms, NGOs, and think tanks. Best selling books to the masses are more often than not selling us something they want us to buy into. You won't find many anarchist, Green, libertarian, or revolutionary books on best seller lists. Nonetheless, those sources are loaded with information, just as Wikipedia is utterly rigged but a good place to go for the "official" narrative on things.

The fundamental issue with Marxism is that everyone has to be on board for it to work which is not going to happen.

Not everyone needs to be on board with worker co-ops - just those in one.

Your statement can apply to many other things - and fall on its face in the same way:

The fundamental issue with Taxes / Obamacare / Endless Wars / Big Goverment is that everyone has to be on board for it to work which is not going to happen. Nonetheless, we have Big Gov and all these other scams.

People can die in capitalist systems but in socialism systems the deaths are by design.

LOL. You don't think it's by design? Seriously? Oops, we killed a few million folks here and a few million there... Accidents were made.

Yes, I actually liked Peterson Bibilical stuff, though dry. He broke it down far better than anyone I'd ever seen as a youth or adult. He's more like Joseph Campbell or a film critic making sense of it. Regardless, I'm still an atheist - but I can appreciate it all in far more depth.

IDW? I agree that Minds is good, but the more decentralized the better IMO. Minds can be shut down. Decentralization can't. When the totalitarian left or totalitarian right blur and merge there will be no difference and there will be no freedom for our minds or Minds.

Is your name inspired by Sprokets? (It was the 1990s Mike Myers' Saturday Night Live series of skits - by far my favourite series on SNL. But my singular favourite skit was called "Bulkan Dirt Diving" circa 1986 or so, which sadly remains absent from YouTube in its entirety.)
