  • @RichBecker Ok, click. So something like "deceptively easy" to know? Uh … I'd say the opposite: dec. easy to come up w/plausible fiction. in reply to RichBecker #
  • @bikerbar Oh dunno … you know of "Generation Kill"? The underlying values are rock solid. Cracker is /sometimes/ sick, but not always. *G* in reply to bikerbar #
  • @bikerbar Knowing Rangers' story is kinda like knowing Easy Company in 101stAbn … "band of brothers" sorta stuff. in reply to bikerbar #
  • I mock Palin thusly: "I hate violence. Violent people should be staked to a road and driven over, then shot." #
  • Left and right both constant exaggerat absolutely everything just to suit their baseless fantasies. Take 2: under pressure few trust reason. #
  • Int'l Relations – Things are looking up for Taliban. Humanitarian response to Haiti: $480 per head. To Pakistan: $63. Woe and doom. #
  • Does anybody know Charles Ferguson and "Inside Job"? Tell him to give his f'n head a shake: http://insidejob.com is a spam swamp. #yuppies #
  • Dear RCMP – At 14 I found out my mom had started dating a SGT. I was sick to my stomache. (FWIW I joined infantry at 16. Screw you.) #
  • No, really, I can explain it all: I am so obviously /not/ brilliant … and you are so obviously /not/ honest. What /is/ the problem?! #
  • I hereby coin "The Taoco├Ân Syndrome": when a free-thinker shouts a warning ("Don't take the Greek's horse!") you shun them. #YuppyPrats #
  • Good news: the weird awful pulsing week-long pain in my neck? No sort of tumor, nope nope … strange/odd pinched nerve. #
  • Google facilitates search, right? By any industry standard, it's still sloppy/clumsy. So FB facilitates "social exchange" likewise: glib. #
  • I've rarely seen as much heart-felt fellowship as in UFC. Authenticity … an antique virtue. #
  • NGO calls for "no labels" discussion. I read: the death of intellect. Categorization is a primary function; should not be discarded. #borg #
  • @salesgrok Challenge: imagine that scenario, but instead of piano have violin. *Aaaaaaaaargh!* (3 girls in Suzuki method. Painful.) in reply to salesgrok #
  • GraphPaperPress announces the "Base" theme framework for #WordPress quot; > http://bit.ly/hJyQKL < #
  • Yet another instance where #RCMP is insane: http://bit.ly/ec7C60 < via @EdmontonCP #YEG #
  • @nicholaspatten What would finance all this research: some elegant approach to fusion. "Thermal pollution" would remain a problem, but … in reply to nicholaspatten #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Has Lougheed set down his thinking? I mean in published form? Cuz in the 70s he really thought that through. in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • *sigh* I suspected that this *cough* industry-strength speaker was all hat/no cattle. His 3 most important blog categories contain 0 posts. #
  • @fraying see Arno Penzias (head of R&D at AT&T; nobel laureat) on "setting up to fail" as method. @kevinmarks in reply to fraying #
  • @blaine Maybe the back-end needs to model analog techniques. IMNSHO things IT are still foundationally binary; reality ain't. @fraying in reply to blaine #
  • #UFC – Recall what a waste.of.space pr*ck Chris Leban was? Wow, his last victory … man, shows what true heart is all about. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Good to know he's still salient! When I was with Hansard (mid 70s) we had elevator chat a couple of times. Brill/classy. in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere p.s. and apologies for not googling: is it Norway or Finland with big petro-$? One of them has capital fund of near $500B. in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • @RichBecker No, I don't think it's subjective. Or, rather: because it's subjective "This is my motive" has no facticity. in reply to RichBecker #
  • @RichBecker What really hooked me into formal Zen (Soto) was a certain uhhhh open-endedness. Like Heisenberg uncertainty, but w/experience. in reply to RichBecker #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere K, I'll take Norway for 10 points. (Freakin' socialists! *G*) Might be enlightening to review EU conservatism. in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • @blaine Location? Eeew, there's that material reality stuff. Soooo 80s! :-) Really: "binary" is lame. My "discourse" system is penta-state. in reply to blaine #
  • @blaine Late one night in the ethology lab (Dalhousie) I yet.again pondered "organization of movement". Eureka moment #2 of 2. :-) #Hebb in reply to blaine #
  • Know the story of how "benzene ring" came to mind? Yes, inspiration does strike, from time to time. It's how we roll … #StrangeAttractors #
  • F'n dweebs: you never really come up with solutions because you really and truly don't want to come up with solutions … GD creeps. #borg #
  • @blaine BT/DT/suffered the cost. Twice. Existentially: fiction. We are still after all existential beings. Once you're rolling, yes. But … in reply to blaine #
  • @blaine If you're at all atuned to fractalinearity (I'd bet you are) then you can't dismiss/devalue where the wet brain is located. in reply to blaine #
  • @blaine p.s. "I'm far too earnest" is my cover story. In truth I'm thick as a brick. Or PTSD. *shrug* Either way, I often miss "jokes". ^5 in reply to blaine #
  • @ginger_the_aide Alternative: however many people don't care, your feelings matter. Even if you aren't an "expert", your feelings count. in reply to ginger_the_aide #
  • Geeks talking about hard-core stuff and it comes down to contacts being "fungible". Yuppies fucked the world; their kidz will profit by that #
  • @ginger_the_aide Luvly. So what I devoted years to: "to an extent" … too vague. "Can't stop there" … but can we skip / leave out? cheers in reply to ginger_the_aide #
  • @ginger_the_aide p.s. http://groundplane.wordpress.com/gp-101 … I tried to make /1/ thing clear. HeyHo, so it goes. in reply to ginger_the_aide #
  • @salesgrok What's that lovely German term? weldschmertz or something? gain by the pain of others? *G* Yes indeed. Something we can give them in reply to salesgrok #
  • Someone said something /almost/ pithy on my FB. Turns out it was copy/paste boiler-plate; they're flogging a book. Yuppies' kidz are poison. #
  • *tap tap tap* Anybody following me from Zurich? > http://www.responsability.com < #
  • #brain – I suffered a very severe concussion once. (And yes, I failed psycho-linguistics 3020!) A month later I was still fog-bound. #
  • Wooops … MD just give assassins a very important detail on PBS. #
  • In a free moment I did research into brain damage and "unilateral neglect". It's amazing what we can do when we care to care. #yuppies #borg #
  • heh … so many "nice" people have unFollowed me I just got "You can no longer Follow more people". Yuppie prigs and their nasty tricks. #
  • @Zen_Moments A song in the 60s had a line about "chains of gold" … Dylan? After Zen (Soto) I did cog-psych. #Dharma is true. __{*}__ #
  • @FriendOrFollow Hi there – I've used your service a few times, and … I just confirmed: sort by "Last Tweet" gives wrong results. #
  • @FriendOrFollow Uh-oh … by UserName also gives wrong results. Gawd man, it's a f'n SQL sort! get a grip! #
  • @FriendOrFollow Yupp, "number of tweets" is likewise /wrong/. #
  • @FriendOrFollow Hey! "Following" works. (which is useless, but at least you got one right.) #
  • 0.6b – When I ponder how self-indulgently inept and slothful you all are it makes me want to get /totally /ethnic// on the lot of you! #
  • 2.0.1 – "Incompetence is the thin edge of the wedge called corruption." "The corruption of the best is the very worst." *You make me gag.* #
  • You quibble over /this/ OS VS /that/ OS, or /this/ movie over /that/ movie … and you've the ethical sophistication of troglodytes. #
  • @_ado It shouldn't. That app is either broken or corrupt. in reply to _ado #
  • I like cowboy ethics: if I'm decent to you and you just give me the cold-shoulder, I'll address you politely then punch you in the nose. #
  • @morsemusings Is she into poetry? I'm not suggesting angst-ridden existentialists, but "poetics" is a valid method … equal to rhetoric! in reply to morsemusings #
  • @JessieX Blog! Blog post called for! C'mon now, you know how it works: sit, address keyboard, then spill. :-) in reply to JessieX #
  • @fishmark A url wudda been really nice. (Social media is social, yaa?) *sigh* in reply to fishmark #
  • I can explain PTSD: having a) an insight into something existential and b) realizing you're all too self-centered and "busy" to listen. meh #
  • @_ado "Overkill" IMNSHO is category error. It's either broken or corrupt. in reply to _ado #
  • @morsemusings She's all things? Yoiks, don't like /that/ poetry at all. And, alas, I think her poetics surpasses your explication. in reply to morsemusings #
  • @JessieX 1) URL is 404, and 2) sooooo sorry you use Tumblr. HeyHo. in reply to JessieX #
  • *ping* Sentient life? *ping* #
  • Here's an insight into why "first person shooters" are all the rage: I and other old gamers will tell you that /folk can't work together/. #
  • @JessieX WP self-hosted. WP.com … blogspot … LiveJournal … you know, blogs. in reply to JessieX #
  • Why shouldn't kids have ADHD? Look how their elders act: "attention deficit" is a kind interpretation of your addled minds. #matrix #borg #
  • @markcritch I've started watching tosh.o … such an innocent smile! *snort* Recently: "5k is so far to run; can't I just write a cheque?!" in reply to markcritch #
  • @markcritch p.s. @danieltosh … _yo quiero te representarle_ fellow flake. heh (I spent the summer of '78 clowning at folk fests. *whoot!*) in reply to markcritch #
  • @Revkin Back in the 80s the Buddhist Peace Fellowship came out with some excellent papers on … well … the state of things. We ruin stuff in reply to Revkin #
  • @Lord_Marbury "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me …" in reply to Lord_Marbury #
  • Last week I disabled my XP/Vista network connection. A week later, still can't get it working. Yuppies have gotten rich producing crap. #
  • @virtuosoblogger "well-intended adults to respond in a protective and charitable fashion" … pity instead of justice. It's pathological. in reply to virtuosoblogger #
  • On the bus out, after 4 days on short rations, I made an odd-ball joke. Someone 2 rows back responded. I moved to his seat and "discovered" #
  • "His cock" a lot of you thought. Variations of that. No. A can of apple sauce, which I opened with my bayonette and shared. You're /fucked/. #
  • Even with modern weapons (except maybe bombers) there's no remove: you lean in … focus … as though pressing the blade to the throat. #
  • The buddy I used to go drinking with (he had a glorious old MG) and I played a game: who's the most dangerous in the room? We usually agreed #
  • Before being in uniform I had been a teenage bus-hipped. He had made a living smuggling cigarettes across the Meditteranean. *shrug* #
  • A simple thing kept me focussed: the Soviet soldier on the other end of the wire. He was no more guilty than I, but /I/ was going to get him #
  • You see, it's rather simple. I've always thought, "This is gonna cost me; let's see how great it is!" You always thought, "What can I gain?" #
  • I think I just now have given up on you. It's like rubbing one's face against a brick wall: one forgets and then reminds one's self why. Til #
  • Think of it this way: all that stuff you're distracting yourself from? That's the stuff. That's "the work". That's civilization. #matrix #
  • Jon Stewart: "Did that rhetoric cause this event? I have no f'ing idea." Now /there/ is yuppie BS. Of course you have an idea. Lazy prat. #
  • "You can't out-smart crazy". Thank you, Stewart, you just proved what I've said about your class: it's /you/ who justify status quo. #borg #
  • Propaganda … pure un-adulterated mind-fuck. Jon Stewart deserves an award: he's just abused the credibility that's been granted. Woe … #
  • "Match our rhetoric with reality more often." Oh, how fine and sweet. But didn't you just say "I have no f'ing idea"? Fucking yuppies. meh #
  • Hey kidz? Guess what the pay-back is for being supercilious on a global and historic level? Oh yes you'd love your mind-fuck BS to rule. But #
  • @thedailyshow – Jon's soliloque tonight? *cough* I wrote "yuppie gob-swab" in another venue tonight, trying to be polite. Bilge. Pretentious #
  • Why "Daily Show" exists: because you're too lazy / self-indulgent to watch such as Charlie Rose. I'm /so/ sorry to be on the same ship! #
  • Jon Stewart's gift to yuppies: "I have no f'ing idea" now passes for thoughtful consideration. Choke on your tongues and die … blight. #
  • Hitler was wrong about propaganda and language. So were Stalin and Mao. And Rwanda? Those broadcasts had no effect. Feckless idiots you are! #
  • How often every day to right-wing demagogues call limp-wristed liberals "traitors"? Oh … that has no effect. Feckless idiots, you are. #
  • @gwynnek Woo! Relationships and community! By golly we're moving forward. 432 BC we are now? cc: @adrielhampton *sigh* in reply to gwynnek #
  • Breaking news: yuppies discover "relationship and community" as potential positive influences. Feckless idiots, you are. #
  • @EgoAnt /Going/ to hell? *cough* I recommend Sartre. "Le Neant" (trans?) specifically. in reply to EgoAnt #
  • @Pres_Bartlet Recall the cigarette butt on the cathedral floor. Some of us have been there; don't diminish that existentiality. in reply to Pres_Bartlet #
  • @mashable Have you been following "themes template"? It's a sort of rationality … and that's always pleasant. BTW HNY. cheers in reply to mashable #
  • Build higher walls and sell more guns. You know you want to; it's high ROI. #
  • "My goal is to simplify complexity." –Jack Dorsey. He's dealing with credit card sales and wins (of course). I do it with discourse; lose. #
  • Answer to the unspoken question: you don't know what my project is because … what … I refused to tell you? Feckless idiots, you are. #
  • Dear Jon Stewart – A CBC journalist just blew you out of the water. You're a feckless idiot … #1 in a flock of feckless idiots. #yuppies #
  • Want to be a media star? Take your lame-ass "I have no idea" and do a Jon Stewart: say "I have no f'ing idea" then run your mouth. #borg #
  • @gwynnek Did you miss my point? or ignore it? That's hardly breaking news. So what' the big announcement? meh in reply to gwynnek #
  • @EgoAnt Kinda proves my point. I'm tired. I'll let it go at that. in reply to EgoAnt #
  • @gwynnek p.s. by the mid-70s we were talking about "light and love delusion". I know, I know, nothing in the past is of any salience, I know in reply to gwynnek #
  • @Ogmin Ohhhh do I know: I've been trying to justify my cohort since they fell out of the bus, stoned/pissed-drunk in '69. (I stayed on.) in reply to Ogmin #
  • How to let the alpha-dog know that you've joined a cult: "Oh, yes!Yes! Community! Relationship! That's the stuff!" Good lord … #matrix #
  • @EgoAnt p.s. see the YouTube of the cop kicking the kneeling guy in the face? or the BlackHawk attack on the crowd of citizens? *shrug* in reply to EgoAnt #
  • "I'm gonna just watch YouTube" … or, heck, "I'm just gonna watch @DailyShow". "Tune out" w/o "turn on" or "drop out". Feckless idiots. #
  • @Ogmin For me (Last week it was announced that he had very high cred) "I have no f'ing idea" will forever be the moment. cheers in reply to Ogmin #
  • @EgoAnt You miss my point: you avoid Sartre by going to the cesspool. Shoo … shoo-shoo! in reply to EgoAnt #
  • Earlier today I tweeted that I was just about done. I mean with you. Stewart's crap? I'll call that the death-knell. You win. We lose. #
  • This will be the banner over my Rocky Mtn retreat: " I think Sartre might be a little heavy. I think I'll stick with YouTube". meh #
  • Epilog: did you /cause/ me to give up? did Stewart? You know, you aren't idiots. You're just liars. It's not quantum physics. #
  • @EgoAnt You "love me some cesspool" but "Sartre's too heavy". Say, you do read what you write? Kinda like Stewart: feckless idiot. in reply to EgoAnt #
  • It's this simple: no, I won't indulge your wish to be a pleasant patsy. I can't speak for "we", but I can act for "I". And you hate that. #
  • @kulpreetsingh Wow are you ever naive. W/respect: if you make this nationalistic, then it's *cough* worse than naive. in reply to kulpreetsingh #
  • @kulpreetsingh BTW some of us "Canadians" have an eye to world, history, and geo-politics. I suggest you re-calibrate your gyros. in reply to kulpreetsingh #
  • @innovate I'll give you the 2nd $M if you help me make 3. Deal? How about "2 solid ways to make better decisions". Only 2? *shrug* in reply to innovate #
  • @dahowlett You lost me at "spotty internet connections". Brings to mind Ponty Python and "dirty fork". in reply to dahowlett #
  • @JessieX You use such tools … and "blog" using Tumblr. Okie dokie. Then I need to ask: what do you do with the other tools? in reply to JessieX #
  • @EgoAnt From a source you know: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNZW1I6bmeI < Perhaps not as entertaining as bloody carnage but *shrug* in reply to EgoAnt #
  • I wonder if today anybody will parse Jon Stewart's copout soliloque from last night. I thought it paradigmatic of yuppie sloth. #
  • @kulpreetsingh Oh, hey, likewise here. But I've come to know that attitude as basically naive; who has finer aspirations than Uncle Sam? in reply to kulpreetsingh #
  • Ideological membership is based on rhetoric, opinion, and preferences. Decisions require facts, data, and logic. #
  • @salesgrok heh yaa, that one. *G* cheers in reply to salesgrok #
