More Musk Magic


This tweet means something, but the tweet's existence suggests it means something other than what is tweeted.




"Oh please. This is Obviously a demonstration of the...(something-something)...capabilities of Starlink."

Begun These Cheesecake Wars Have

J. Greely decided to post a bunch of visually interesting not entirely canonical depictions of various characters from Girls Frontline a Chinese gacha game that is focused on anthropomorphizations of various modern and historical firearms.

Mr. Greely is to be commended on the quality of his cheesecake.

But quantity has a quality all its own.

Algorithms: They Take You To....Places

While trying to confirm a rumor that Sargon of Akkad had been arrested*, I blundered onto this.  59 minutes and six seconds later, I feel that I am now dumber than I have ever been.



It starts off innocently enough, with retarded claims about the precision of the geometry of the Giza Pyramids. Then our humble Gumby presenter starts name dropping Thoth. By 7:27 he's claiming that Jews are space aliens who were visiting Atlantis when things went pear shaped but that's not important or germane to THIS discussion because all our problems seem to stem from the Martian Patriarchy and the misconception that Satan is bad. Zecharia Sitchin, Edgar Casey, and Nostradamus have all been mentioned by 13:26.  It goes on at an AMAZING pace explaining how the 12 dimensional properties of spacetime and the electromagnetic properties of ley lines are demonstrated and proven by the "hundredth monkey" phenomenon. The video goes on, laying out in excruciating and utterly contradictory detail a grand unified field theory of derp that (naturally enough) includes tantric inter-dimensional sex meditations.

So: What is the takeaway from all this?

The world is stupid and getting stupider.

I suspect that my use of the word "Akkad" in a search is what brought me to this surfeit of Fortean numbnuttery.



*He appears to have been given a stern talking-to for a 3 year old tweet.

We'd apologize to John Carpenter and the Shaw Brothers too, but the blog is just embedding these videos and is not responsible for their creation.

Believe It or Not

It appears that after getting inadvertently "outed" on the air about a month ago, and not being seen or spoken of since,  the individual we shall refer to here as Trappy McTrap Cat was NOT kicked off the show, but has merely had a scheduling conflict and today responded to the polite and supportive expressions of concern left in the You Tube comments. 

What makes this story particularly hard to believe is the notion of polite and supportive You Tube comments.

In Which We Do Some Fact Checking

Remember. If you want to you can always just "Google it."
Oh.

Google search is hiding auto-completed text related to the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.


Well, we here at Brickmuppet Blog figured this would be not just prudent but easy to fact check, so as of 22:18 EST we found that while the autofill function produced almost the same results as claimed, the algorithms had, apparently been tweaked...slightly.



Oh dear.

Fortunately, after about three clicks of further digital gumshoeing, it appears that that first result is just a meme and not an actual product like these.

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.

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?

Mea Culpa

An earlier post here embedded a video that was described as "seasonal". However the only things seasonal were the winter quipaos and snow.


 
This is obviously problematic as it clearly exclusionary to our antipodean readers. 


To rectify this inexcusable lack of inclusivity, sensitivity, and geographical awareness, here is a video that is completely seasonal with regards to women's optional casual attire in the southern hemisphere around this time of year.


Note too, that while not strictly seasonal, the lyrics, plane crash and Arn Anderson(?) do not directly contradict near-current southern hemisphere weather patterns or holidays and thus the video should not offend anybody.

So please don't deplatform us.
