Too bad too much of the show was devoted to Jack’s monologues. The program would have greatly benefited from more dialogue between Natasha and Malcolm.

Before you were born you didn’t exist for a literally infinite amount of time. Soooo soon, you return to that state for another eternity.

So enjoy Arby’s.

Hey Nihilist Arby’s — Not exactly true: the universe is only 13.8 billion years — so all that can be said is that you didn’t exist for 13.8 billion years, which is far shorter than a literally infinite amount of time!

Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to space.

Here’s another citizen detective analyzing the now failed QuadrigaCX cryptocurrency exchange. One guy has already analyzed some Bitcoin addresses and deduced that the exchange seemingly had no cold storage for customers’ assets. Instead, the now-deceased CEO was allegedly using customers’ deposits to cover customer withdrawals, while apparently also using customer funds to trade on other exchanges.

Now someone has analyzed some Ethereum addresses and has concluded that QuadrigaCX probably did have cold storage for ETH, but those wallets were empty. Instead, it appears funds were being moved from other exchanges and, using another service, exchanged for other cryptos like bitcoin and Litecoin. IOW, it looks like QuadrigaCX was running an elaborate shell game, robbing Peter to pay Paul in an effort to satisfy some customers’ withdrawals.

Here’s the more detailed and technical account. medium.com

Meanwhile, has Wells Fargo found the on switch yet?

Parts of White America have decided they don’t like a Japanese woman whose English is poor telling them they have way too much shit in their homes.

As the article notes, white people telling other people to downsize and be minimalists don’t receive nearly the same kind of animosity as Ms Kondo has. In fact, they are admired and adored, even if people eventually ignore their advice.

I wouldn’t argue time with nihilist Arby’s; you’ve already lost. Because we still don’t understand what time really is, NHs statement is true. Additionally, using the theory that all time is concurrent and our perception of time progressing is simply that, perception. We are already dead. Don’t argue logic with a nihilist, it kills you.

I’m sad to say this but if MLK were prominent now, a lot of white America would hate him still. I really think we have gotten better as a whole in many ways but this is where we are in 2019. We’ve got a good amount of people who and I don’t want to sound snobby here but are more enlightened about other people but we also got people who still don’t get it. The President and his party and even some lefties are in the latter.

A couple of years back, Lidl used a black model in one of their ads (he was modeling a sweater or something IIRC). Well, there was a vertiable explosion of racism on Czech social media as a result.

However, Lidl not only continued using black models in their Czech advertising, but Marks & Spencer joined in the fun, using black models to advertise their clothes here at their stores…..and a lot of my students bemoaned that as result of that outburst of derp from some folks here who apparently soil themselves at the sight of anyone who’s a shade darker than themselves, Czech Republic has now acquired a reputation as “one of the most racist countries in Europe”.

I mean prejudice unfortunately is everywhere. I’m not naive enough to think that only white Americans practice it. But with white Americans as the dominant representative culture and yes “ruling class”- politics, business, the media, etc, that’s why white prejudice is singled out and of course because it’s the most enduring on our country. The colorism that exists in some Hispanic and Asian people is deplorable. No mistake about it. But that hasn’t influenced our overall culture. In fact, I don’t think most white people know what colorism is.

Not exactly unassuming. She’s confident and firm in her expectations of her “clients” on the show. She’s about 5 feet tall and maybe 100 pounds soaking wet, but I wouldn’t want to make her angry. Her kids could probably tell stories. ;-)

Chinese, too. Here it is called feng shui, a kind of mystical alignment of physical objects for maximum effect (prosperity, happiness, etc.). Most of the homes I have visited in China are remarkably uncluttered, or at least everything has a place to be, out of sight. It’s rubbed off on me. When I visit cluttered homes in the States, I feel claustrophobic in a way, and I’m not prone to claustrophobia.

As I e said previously, the right-whingers could deconstruct murder to a “process” crime. It is irrelevant what you call it, it is still a crime; specifically, what they did was a treason “process” crime. It’s a meaningless adverb to make things sound less ominous.

Utah Republicans, continuing the GOP tradition of cheating to win:

Harkening back to the tactics of white-flight segregationists, a Utah state representative has proposed that a heavily white region within Navajo-majority San Juan County secede and form its own county after Navajo-backed candidates for county offices won historic majorities in 2018’s elections. That election outcome was the byproduct of a successful lawsuit that struck down the racially gerrymandered districts for county commission and school board that had enabled candidates backed by the white minority to maintain a stranglehold on local government for decades.​

The proponent of this plan, state Rep. Phil Lyman, isn’t just a Republican legislator. He was also a San Juan County commissioner who chose to run for the state legislature in 2018 after his illegally gerrymandered district was struck down. Lyman claims he’s not necessarily in favor of secession and merely thinks it should be debated, but he’s consistently (and baselessly) rejected the court’s ruling striking down the districts as illegitimate.

Normally, splitting an existing county would require supporters to gather signatures from one-quarter of residents in each portion of the proposed division. Voters in both sections of the proposed split would also have to approve the plan in a referendum. However, GOP state Rep. Kim Coleman has introduced a bill to drop the requirement that voters in both sections of the proposed division favor a plan to split the county. If these proposals become law, it could pave the way for white voters like those in San Juan to simply secede and take their tax base with them now that they’ve lost majority control in fair elections to candidates backed by a community of color.

I’m still not clear what a “process crime” is and why it’s not as serious as any other crime.

they probably appropriated it from ‘process story’
separating ‘real’ news (the policy) from stories about how the sausage (policy) was made

still meaningless in this context

This is a few weeks old, but I just ran across it this morning. Fuck these motherfuckers.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) today announced a settlement with Mark Corbett, a broker of contracts offering high-interest credit to veterans.

Under the terms of the consent order, Corbett is permanently banned from brokering, offering, or arranging agreements between veterans and third parties under which the veteran purports to sell a future right to an income stream from the veteran’s pension. Corbett must also pay a civil money penalty of $1, an amount that accounts for Corbett’s inability to pay more based on sworn financial statements that he provided to the Bureau and Corbett’s ongoing cooperation with the Bureau’s investigation.

After North Carolina’s largest counties cut ties with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency said it’s been forced to adopt a “new normal”: one that resulted in the arrest of hundreds of immigrants living here illegally this week.

“This is the direct conclusion of dangerous policies of not cooperating with ICE,” said Sean Gallagher, who oversees the agency’s operation in the Carolinas and Georgia. “This forces my officers to go out onto the street to conduct more enforcement.”

Since December, newly elected sheriffs in the state’s two most populous counties — Mecklenburg and Wake — have reversed a policy that notifies ICE about the legal status of inmates in county jails. The Durham County Sheriff’s Office also ended the practice of honoring ICE detainers.

These changes, Gallagher said, have given the agency “no choice” but to conduct targeted enforcement across the state this week. “This is politics over public safety at its worst.”

There are some really neat bike trailers out there, some of them custom home-builts that you could fit.

In first comments since press conf, @RalphNortham tells @SchneiderG he wants to use the rest of his term to pursue racial reconciliation and consider “white privilege

The GOP does not care much for that, and they will never cease reminding him of his racist past…because it has worked for them quite well so far.

Well, to be fair, the US has exported all sorts of things to Australia, including, probably, fire ants.

“The pathway of entry is unknown but the ant was probably accidentally introduced in a shipping container from southern USA, where the ant is well established.”

In democratic government, elected officials do not have power. They hold power — in trust for the people who elected them. If they misuse or abuse that public trust, it is quite properly revoked (the quicker the better).

There are only four remaining ancient Babylonian culinary tablets detailing the world’s oldest known recipes — and they might have remained, unused, forever in a display case in the Yale Babylonian Collection were it not for an invitation to a cooking event at New York University in early May in which teams prepared foods from around the globe and different time periods.

Agnete Lassen, associate curator of the Yale Babylonian Collection, and Chelsea Alene Graham, digital imaging specialist at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage, were part of the team that painstakingly recreated — step by step — three stews from one of the tablets as closely as possible to how they would have been prepared and eaten almost 4,000 years ago.

“Our idea was to revisit the old translations and see where we could improve our understanding of the terminology and approach a better understanding of these recipes,” says Lassen, explaining that the recipes come from the same period and probably from the same place. “They might not have been written by the same person but they relate to the same interest in culinary recipes,” she says.

The event, “An Appetite for the Past,” was hosted by NYU’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World and Department of Nutrition and Food Studies. Seven teams were invited to attend. Some chose to focus on the archaeological or textual aspects of the cuisine they represented, while others created modern interpretations of ancient dishes from ancient China, the Mediterranean, and Roman and medieval times. On the last day of the event, each of the teams presented the fruits of their collaborative research at a tasting symposium, where attendees were invited to sample the various foods that had been prepared.

Sounds like it was a fun event last year.

Wow. Looked again and saw that you were using it to haul dive gear. That’s space management.

not at the same time as the long cross countries.

i had an independent dive business down here in sofla. i’d teach up and down the east cost. sometimes i’d use my then pickup (convertible dodge dakota). sometimes i’d use this.

one trip to dutch springs, pennsylvania, we went in clear and came out of the water to an absolute drownpour. i dumped my gear into my student’s car trunk, got on the bike in the wetsuit and took off. got cheers and applause all through the park back to the main road and back to the motel.

I really wish people would read just a little bit about Kondo before deciding who she is and how she thinks. She doesn’t try to make everyone’s environment the same. She tries to figure out what brings you joy and get rid of what doesn’t. If things bring you joy you should be able to see them and not have them stored away.

I find her method to be delightful and fun - not stifling.

And no she never ever tells anyone how many books to have!

I used to have more than 4,000 books, now I’m down to less than fifty. But I have several thousand golf discs!
