  • Given that the economy is based on froth and thrash, I wonder what % of yuppies are hauling $$ for doing half-assed work. 60%? 75% 90%? #
  • Breaking news: dumb-asses think PotUS failed because he didn't "call out the cavalry". Don't tell me there's rationality! #
  • Q: did you watch the oil earlier today? Live feed shows yellow/brown but earlier it was jet-black. #
  • Looks to me like stream has changed color. More mud / less oil? #TopKill #
  • 11 gallons / second *sigh* #
  • @mashable – You're on PBS … and you look just like your avatar! #
  • C'mon Pete, hoe in … say "Opt In"! Yesssss! @mashable #
  • @wptavern I still think there isn't a good consumer grade presentation out there. Gotta simply. heh like FB & privacy. @photomatt #GPL in reply to wptavern #
  • Watching the oil plume at the bottom is like watching some alien thing giving birth. or spewing poison #
  • I've watched #TopKill for over an hour. Sorry folks, no visible change in oil flow. #
  • Spent a few minutes on back porch w/Cat, looking at the prairie sky. I wonder: how often do we get a chance to be kind. #
  • "Prediction hell: How dumb do Bill Gates & Microsoft's iPad, Surface predictions look now?" > http://bit.ly/aLbhhW < (ZDNet) #
  • Q: how much has been spent on salaries for Firefox? I mean the Mozilla project. #
  • @davidcnswanson I've been anti-war since '73. "the work you are doing consists primarily of BLOWING other people's heads off." is bullshit. #
  • @joshmull If I was funding wooly-headed sophistry it wouldn't be TeaParty. It'd be @davidcnswanson and company. Inaccurate / simplistic. sad in reply to joshmull #
  • @davidcnswanson @joshmull – I really appreciate Obey (D-MI) … he's got the cojones to state the case w/o violence to reality. Balls. in reply to joshmull #
  • @davidcnswanson Yet.another.twist? I never said I appreciated what he said. I said I appreciated /him/. I DON"T appreciate you. Capice? in reply to davidcnswanson #
  • @davidcnswanson Take 2. I'd never say he was always right. But I'd say you're usually full of shit. On the right side? Sure. And full of it. in reply to davidcnswanson #
  • @dpn @AshleyAngell Git yuhr grooves on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hR6eWexxZA&lt; /me flashes back to Black Hawk Down soundtrack #
  • @davidcnswanson 100% pure unadulterated ass. _Sin berguensa_ (I was going to quote Trudeau's letter to me. But you're a waste of electrons.) in reply to davidcnswanson #
  • #record in dialog w/PMO as spokes for national anti-cruise Peace Camp, got a note from Trudeau: "a step in mad logic of nuclearism". Yepp . #
  • @davidcnswanson p.s. I guessed from your rapturous superiority you were some flavour of fundamentalist. Society of Jesus? Hard-core RC? in reply to davidcnswanson #
  • Nearly 3hrs monitoring realtime video of blow-out preventer. (via @PBS) No change in oil flow. bummer #
  • #hubris Citizen wants PotUS to say, "Ok, send in the cavalry". #Fundamentalist non-sense. Mind f*ck. #
  • @judell Lateral to "fertile ground" and paradigm shift? "Pull, Push and Stasis"> http://bit.ly/8X2GVJ <> http://bit.ly/5xqfES < cheers #
  • Dear Governor Jindal – Have an eye out: lotsa folk suicided after the Exxon spill. Just sayin' … stay well. #
  • @andersoncooper – Anderson, recall the town mayor who suicided in Alaska after fighting Exxon? Folk gotta be smart, yuh hear? #
  • Decades of careerism, folk. The system is plugged with opportunistic A-list ass-kjissers. #HighschoolPersonalityPolitics #yuppies #
  • I've talked integrated logistics support using maps for years. Zero interest. 0.00 interest. #yuppies #matrix #borg #OilKatrina #
  • #geek – Integrated logistics support? Think OO … now think inheritance. Common dog f*ck, when folk give a damn. /If/ folk give a damn. #
  • See, I know I bore you with "discourse" and "dialectic" and "praxis" and "techne". Think I'm gonna apologize? Wankers. #Yuppies #YuppiesKidz #
  • Dig this: while IT was shown to be fatuous (Agile?! What a joke.) what was the big story? FB privacy. Feckless narcissists. #
  • @joshmull You almost twist things worse than he does. Oh, I see … you're just demonstrating loyalty. #BrainDamage Don't lie. Can you? in reply to joshmull #
  • @joshmull " I like when pols "state the case," then do nothing" but you kiss up when someone BSs and does nothing. #BrainDamage in reply to joshmull #
  • @joshmull "Swansons a real jerk for wanting politicians to stand by their principles." I never said ANYTHING LIKE THAT … asshole. #borg in reply to joshmull #
  • @joshmull What I wrote, dork: "I'd never say he was always right. But I'd say you're usually full of shit." And double for you. #borg in reply to joshmull #
  • @joshmull I have contempt for narcissistic yuppie twits. You have contempt for anyone who disagrees. Different tribes. in reply to joshmull #
  • @CNN – What @andersoncooper just did with the professor: that heavy artillery. That's forensics. That's propositional analysis. cheers! #
  • Got what it takes for forensics? Check @davidcnswanson's blog and find 1 paragraph that holds water. #matrix #borg #
  • @joshmull Oh, and last time I checked PPCLI in Afgh they were supporting installation of wells and gas generators. "BLOWING HEADS OFF"? Ass. in reply to joshmull #
  • Sebastian Junger on Charlie Rose last night > http://bit.ly/bRfcvV < anti-dote to @joshmull and @davidcnswanson … mere honesty. And guts. #
  • @joshmull @davidcnswanson – Just to close this off, having guys like you in the movement sucked the will to live outta me, year after year. in reply to joshmull #
  • "I'd far rather an intelligent idealist than a stupid materialist." Karl Marx. "Progressives" break that logic: they're stupid idealists. #
  • For the umpteenth time I think it through and can grok TeaBaggers. But "progressive" clap-trap? I think (again) it arises from cowardice. #
  • #geek – Integrated logistics support? Think OO … now think inheritance. A way to de-construct events/functions. You know, OO stuff. #
  • @joshmull Specifically (it's on his blog homepage) that BLOWING HEADS OFF is all that's being done if Afgh. I.e analysis, just spew. ^5 in reply to joshmull #
  • Better to go down dignified | With boughten friendship at your side | Than none at all. Provide, provide!" Better bought friends than none? #
  • PotUS on stage in 10 minutes #
  • @joshmull BTW had this passed to me y'day: "Journalism and 'the words of power'" by Robert Fisk > http://bit.ly/pwhb < in reply to joshmull #
  • "After the crash – a new direction for climate policy" > http://bit.ly/9KAZcx < (BBC.co.uk) #
  • @ahkonlhamo Tashi Delek Lhamo-lah! #
  • @joshmull Repeat: it's on his blog front page. in reply to joshmull #
  • Spectra – Visual NewsReader > http://bit.ly/Xm9r < (MSNBC) #visualization #
  • Going on ?what? 24hrs of mud&cement. You gotta figure TopKill ain't working. #
  • "Wired Mag App Sold 24,000 Downloads On First Day" > http://bit.ly/cw5G3s < by @davidaKaplan via @paidcontent #
  • I was wrong: they're continuing with TopKill because they're actually making progress. #
  • Picture of BOP now is same as 20hrs ago. So for past 20hrs there has been little / no oil released! #
  • @dpn @StephenKelly FYI: http://oilreporter.org < via @craignewmark on HuffPost > http://bit.ly/aXThQU < #
  • @Joelplane Not /yet/. Point is first force oil column down low enough below BOP so plug is fully secure. No "junk shot" indicates progress. in reply to Joelplane #
  • Over 5K comments over at HuffPo on Palin's speech … 167 pages. Don't tell me we're anywhere near Web2.0 #matrix #borg #
  • @ahkonlhamo #IdleCuriosity ;-) Did you attend Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's investiture? (I was back stage most of the time.) __{*}__ in reply to ahkonlhamo #
  • IMNSHO a small agile shop could OO copy/paste best practice to support Oil Spill. Why not happened? #HighSchoolPolitics #matrix #borg #
  • @SwiftRiver FYI: "After the Deadline – Language Checking Technology." > http://bit.ly/lF6lQ < #
  • #TopKill apparently hasn't succeeded. Not FAIL, but they're talking about doing JunkShot. Which is not a great sign. #
  • @ahkonlhamo "Why" simply: I let mind go and watch it perigrinate like crow from ship's bow. :-) For a mo' thought you had & I'd missed you. in reply to ahkonlhamo #
  • @ahkonlhamo Ah!! HHPR at Dorje Denma Ling? I was staffing. (Helped set up that big open-pit BBQ for lunch. *G*) '94 or so? in reply to ahkonlhamo #
  • @PhilBaumann My 1st thot was shudda had C4-wrapped hole to start. But now? WWI-style tunnel and siliconize the entire situation. *wh000mph!* in reply to PhilBaumann #
  • #TopKill – No, not "junk shot". Thicker stuff i.e. "bridging material". So they've been making some progress. Some. #
  • @Julian101 Congrats! have fun / plays safe ;-) in reply to Julian101 #
  • If the A-list cared about more than froth I'd have a forensic logistics platform running for #OilKatrina You don't see cuz they don't care. #
  • #TopKill – Video was showing mud stream. BP tells the truth: it was stopped for hours. Arse, totally arse. #
