I am pretty excited because I just got to use science to tell someone to go lick an asshole.

Man, I bet Pratchett could have written one hell of a Discworld book about all this.

Dimo, you seem unwell.

I know shit's not been great for you for a while. Your posts in this thread, or on facebook where it started, do not come across as somebody in their right frame of mind.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sesame_Credit

Sesame Credit is a social credit scoring system being constructed by Ant Financial Services Group, an affiliate of the Chinese Alibaba Group. It uses data from Alibaba's services to compile its score. The highly controversial score is used to rank citizen in China based on a variety of factors. This is a system that is soon to be mandatory in China beginning in the year 2020. [1][2]

Baihe.com, a Chinese matchmaking company, uses Sesame Credit data as part of its service.[2]

Sesame Credit has denied rumors that their rating includes data gathered from social media activity.

That's the very short version, it's considerably more fucked up than that implies. This is essentially using social peer pressure to try and control a population. The compliant ostracise the dissidents and you get a handy up to the second accurate list of who are/are not enemies of the state.

Expand the implications to families and groups of people and you've got something really fucking special. Dad going out drinking on a thursday means Mum is banned for the hairdresser for a week. A daughter skips school one afternoon so the Son is assigned detention to be completed before leaving. You can go anywhere with this and use it to condition the living fuck out of people.

At least England is dull enough that it will just use it to issue fines to fucking everyone.

Holy shit.

It's creepy, and then there's the porn spam, and it is there that this becomes a p3nt piece.

I feel you. The happiest years of my life have been the "don't give a shit about y'all" ones.

Yeah, I am convinced that the best way to be miserable is to try to be something you aren't.

Wait but I'm miserable just trying to be happ- *explodes*

Yeah he lit a spark, and just now he helped to snuff it out. It just adds to the apathy my friends who already thought everything was corrupt feel.

Bernie did what Clinton never could, drive a steak in the heart of his movement by showing it was all a ploy all along.

And so old what else did he have left to lose? The spectre of the boogyman Trump made Sanders go scared to corruption?

 :lulz: Somehow this is my favorite part.

What kind of fuckery is this?

Academia.

which I do not recommend.

On the other hand, on Thursday there will be a gigantic radioactive pile of fuckery, and I shall be squatting on top of it.
Shit Roger. Sorry man.

Johnson has stated if he becomes leader of the Tory party he won't be calling for a general election.

Whichever senior Tory party member who said Gove and Johnson had "engineered a right-wing coup" on Friday, give yourself a cookie.  You called that shit with clarity.

Oh shit, I am definitely drunk.  Please disregard anything posted in, lets say, the last hour from this post and the next 3 hours, unless it seems like it actually makes sense.
Can't say I blame you.

On a personal note, I apologize for making dumb jokes on your facebook Brexit threads. That shit is terrifying and sad.

This caused a sense of physical wrongness to bloom somewhere behind my lungs. A very specific type of fear. It is excellent work.

A Muslim man attacking a gay club on Latino night is the most twisted take on the American dream you can think of. It's what we are now, a 21st century melting pot of hate and tragedy. There's something terribly wrong with us and we all seem to agree on that alone and will eat each other to prove it.

Our house got burgled, so that's kind of shit.
It looks like they ransacked the bedroom/hall areas, piled everything on a blanket ready to carry it out, then walked into the lounge and realised the house is full of cameras and door sensors (turned off due to a cleaner visiting today). They seem to have freaked out, broken a camera off the wall and stolen it, stolen one MacBook (among a pile of other MacBooks and more expensive electronics) and bolted.

No images captured due to disabled system, but we do have a timeline of their movements through doors for all the good it does us. I don't imagine we'll ever see the MacBook or the security camera again.

Fantastically, our cleaner then turned up, presumed we were slobs and unransacked the house, polishing all flat surfaces and likely destroying all forensic evidence.

 :lulz:

I'm sorry, that's a really shitty thing to have happened, but your cleaner sounds like an earnest and adorable hard worker.

Please clap. The loudspeaker blares. Please clap. One of the weary in the bread lines manages to abide. Please clap. He drops dead right after. Please clap.
