China’s chilling plan for complete social control by useless_aether in privacy

The worst part would be getting them to concentrate on the typewriters. Sure they would wonder about what it was, why it was there, how it would improve their lives. I think a short-term, intermittent reward system. So they would get food and one electric jolt hitting the pleasure centers of their brains when they start writing and more randomly during the writing session. Yes, Shakespeare is too long by far. We could say any work between a short story and novel would do as a winner. It could take centuries but we must know if it can be done.

Our next project would be: if a man speaks in the wilderness but there is no woman there to hear him— is he still wrong? Easy experimental design, for one.

My hard drive is named DYSTOPIAN, really. Maybe it's just me but I don't want to look back, because something might be gaining on me. Strange thing is my own calmness about it. It's only a simulation. Not real. And is our simulation maker in someone else's simulation?

I will have to deal later with your assertion that a simulation would not be this high-res. Hmmm.

Raised my ambient paranoia level by ~1.5 on a ten-point scale. Paradigm shifts will do that.

You have a vague, free-floating feeling of paranoia, especially when you hear the word event? That is normal, and just the way they want you to feel. I figure the events are spaced about a month apart on average, and the perpetrator is always either dead afterward or is unavailable for any sort of interview at all—even in print. Seems like a regular pattern.

So, everybody already got the call then?

Many are just uninformed and not very bright in the first place (Carlin's Law). Last night we watched some random HookTube street interviews asking citizens what the letters C, I, A stood for. Not one of five or so, got it right. Does that sound like a good random sample? I'm asking seriously.

I, for one, wish the Kenyan candidate would shut up. His grandmother insists he was born in Kenya, and it has been reported that his birth certificate is a well done forgery. There still are many suggesting he has connections to both the Catholics In Action and the Deep State. Plus, his wife used to play tight end for Notre Dame. No, that last one, I made up.

Anyone who leaves or enters the US with US $10,000 or more on them, in whatever form—cash, precious metals, etc.—must report it to "the authorities." All international travelers know this, even many of those who are mentally challenged. He was way over the line and I'm sure he knew the law. Within the last few years, it has become much more difficult for ordinary US citizens to move money around the world, unless you are rich enough. Try flying to say, Bangkok, and opening a bank account without the correct visa that will take you months to get, if all goes well. Good luck with that, but if you take the 55-minute hop to Cambodia, no problem sir.

You know, it's not true that 500, or whatever number of monkeys given typewriters (in fact I hate this story.) would ever write all of Shakespeare, because the probability against this ever happening is a larger number that the number of molecules in the universe.

Donald Trump, a good part of his team and the current chairman of the federal reserve are apprentices of the jesuits. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

Jesuits and Jews are a lethal mix. Have you seen the black pope's brand new papal pulpit, or is it rectumry? The inside and outside views are unmistakably that of a serpent's head. We have the first Jesuit Pope, and his hobby is astronomy, with special interest in our Sun. Inside the snake's head. The narrative is nonsense, but that picture says a lot.

Set mood to rambunctious/edgy. Something about the Presidential Alert worries me.

Screw that tin foil apparatus; I've got a Faraday Cage over my entire head and it is grounded to the bottom of my shoes. So here's my laugh at the Catholics In Action: HA. Thanks DS.

You could see the quibs clearly. A textbook example of controlled demolition. Or the first [edit: second. Pull it.] time a steel-framed building collapsed into its own footprint without being hit by a drone, uh, plane.
