Well, THAT post is sidelined indefinitely.

That Venn Overlap Between TOS and POS

A screencap of a screencap from today's Dumping with Scrump...screencapping a random sentence buried in the new Discord terms of service.





Now this almost certainly won't stand up in a court of law. However, to regain control of one's IP one has to hire a lawyer. This, of course, is beyond the means of many who's IP will get looted like this. Which, is, of course the point.


While it's an interesting discussion, describing the disturbing decline and degeneration of Discord, I do not necessarily recommend listening to today's episode. It goes into dreadful places. For instance, I could have lived a full, happy, and productive life never having had explained to me what the actual hell cubbycon meant and now that path of pleasant innocence is forever closed to me.

Taking Electoral College Pieces Off the Board...In Innovative Ways

So. 

Speaking of that mysterious, exotic, place between Duluth and Dikson.

There is now a Change.org petition to sell Montana to Canada for a trillion dollars. This is being cleverly presented as a means to reduce the debt.

The proposal itself is fairly laconic.

 We have too much debt and Montana is useless. Just tell them it has beavers or something.

This particularly cunning because, while Montana is replete with uses, the statement is, in fact two thirds true (The debt is too big, and Montana does, in fact, have beavers) . 

As I typed this the proposal had 6,941supporters out of a goal of 7,500.

Signs & Portents: Unrest is Everywhere.

Civil uprising, Canadian Style.

3 years old, but still illustrative of...something.

Just a Link to a PDF.( For Historical Purposes)

When the "Green New Deal" first came out there was a FAQ sheet and I downloaded it got halfway through page 2 and reralized that the Cray-Cray was stronger in this document than I'd thought possible...and stopped reading. 


I commented on another blog that nuclear power was not just absent from the proposed solutions, it was specifically singled out for elimination. 

to wit:
A Green New Deal is a massive investment in renewable energy production and would not include creating new nuclear plants. It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.

The blogger asked for a citation saying he could not find that in the document. This struck me as odd because Lowther does his research and, as I said, it was on page two. 

Well lo and behold it appears that online versions of the FAQ page are being removed and/or edited; It's just that crazy a document. 

Well, I downloaded it and it's HERE (WARNING: May cause SAN loss)

It will remain here at least until Mee.nu gets blowed up. 

Neo has thoughts on the purpose of releasing the document as crazy and incomplete as it is. 

Pixy meanwhile, has run the numbers

They are not little numbers.

New Asteroid Discovered

Via Instapundit comes this story about the discovery of a new asteroid inside the orbit of Venus. One of the Brickmuppet's Crack Team of Science Babes explains why this is object is so potentially interes....



"Forget that! It's not important anymore. 
I've uncovered proof that our society is over"

Wha..?



Well. That's it.

UPDATE: I have a question. Would this be transhumanist furries or would the lack of fur preclude that and if so would these be shinies?
