SCOTUS fails to bring CIA to justice for being torture ghouls πŸ”— 1647463068  

As expected. If the government says it, it must be true, right?

BAP knocks it out of the park πŸ”— 1647296520  

As always, know your enemy. No Russian ever robbed me like Mordor's minions have.

Controlled Flight into Terrain: The west's suicidal sanctions πŸ”— 1647287813  

Although the complexity of this situation makes it impossible to make any forecasts, consider: a worst case scenario is much much worse than stagflation. Just wrap your mind around the consequences the merely the two outcomes described above: a fair bit of famine and supply shortfalls, even potentially problems with maintaining some critical infrastructure due to chip scarcity. Some of that productive capacity loss could become permanent due to business failures.

And let us remind you….so far we are discussing only what the West has done to itself. What happens if Russia goes full Smoot-Hawley and retaliates, or engages in the passive aggressive version, as in no formal pronunciations, just supplies go to friendlies and the West gets chocked down, not 100% but enough to feel like that.

The Democratic Party is in the process of executing a controlled flight into terrain. Too bad that we are along for the ride.

Drone Powerline Perching πŸ”— 1647189469  

Hot dog. This extends effective range of most drones to near-infinite when controlled with GSM.

University of Seville's BirdBot πŸ”— 1647188653

John Henry Eden, coming soon to an electorate near you

Computerized neuron mapping making huge strides for the crippled πŸ”— 1647186032  

This tech should also allow fully articulated artificial limbs very soon. I imagine they'll even implement sensation at some point if they can do control.

FED Update: Too little too late, if not outright mendacity πŸ”— 1647185041  

I actually suspect the latter, but these are PHDs...

Qaeda guys shipped to Ukraine πŸ”— 1647184862  

Since the Kazakh thing failed, I suppose it's the only job left for these dogs of Uncle Sam.

LME "bails in" large Chinese nickel trader taking a bath πŸ”— 1647183559  

"But understand we have crossed a Rubicon in the last few months that financial institutions and Govts can take money because they do not like that person or their activities."
Breaking fundamental trust, much like how the Central banks have done so with Russia's Reserves of late. A currency crisis is now inevitable.

patio11 on the SWIFT stuff πŸ”— 1646413505

The replication crisis, and almost all of quantum "theory" being all wet, explained simply

Best said roundup of what lead to it all I've seen thus yet.

Yarvin goes on Infowars πŸ”— 1646164874  

He makes a good showing. It is still a topic of interest to me what to do about the ruinous impact of succession wars (which is what ultimately ended the great monarchies).

ding ding ding, we have a winner
