How are computers so exhausting I just spent 12 hours struggling to get this shitty laptop working, which included the last few hours doing a factory reset and putting Chrome on. I shouldn't be this tired, it's just basically waiting around for shit to happen.

It's the boredom that gets you. Sitting for hours on end watching a busy pointer, knowing the whole time that the second you walk out the room the motherfucker is going to ask you something and halt the install until it gets an answer. It's very draining.

I can't mine is defective. Grain just pisses out through the holes  :sad:

Canada would be an appealing option if not for the fact that the US is right next door. Pretty sure Canada is going to cop more than a bit of fallout when that shit implodes. All my exit strategies involve remote places. Far enough away from population centers to hole up and avoid the flak but close enough to pay the odd scavenging visit.

Best case scenario - the dust settles and some progressive liberal fucks have pwnt the global economy and are handing out UBI to all comers.

Worst case - who fucking cares, it's all over at that point

Oh it's much funnier than that.

Taking Unemployment as an example, how do you get this down to record lows? Well to start with, you close all the job centres you can. People still need to turn up in person to a job centre that is now 20+ miles away in order to claim benefits. Can't afford to travel there? Well that's a sanction (read - Penalty charge) for you and removal of any/all remaining benefits. You're not entitled to any support and you no longer factor into unemployed statistics as you've been kicked off it and are just a lazy parasite, not someone who's in a terminally fucked situation. Catch 22 had nothing on the kinds of statistical manipulation you'll be seeing over the next couple of years.

The end result here is going to be social unrest on a national scale. Food riots are a very strong possibility at the moment. The main question is where and when. I wouldn't rule out seeing a few affluent people killed and cannibalised at this rate. Hell, this should probably happen anyway just to send the appropriate message to the rest of the job creators.

Optimist. Hey, I'd like to see the underdogs bite back as much as the next guy but there are way to many false divisions being driven through the group. If there's food riots, it'll be those benefit scrounging unemployed fucks to blame. Expect public sympathy to back the good old boys in black and blue, defending public order against the subhuman scumbags and immigrants. People actually sympathised with the miners and they got away with billyclubbing them to a pulp. Everybody hates the unemployed already. The teevee is pumping out scrounging bastard propaganda 24/7. I expect in a few years time Ant and Dec will be holding phone-in competitions for a member of the public to press the dronestrike button.

When unemployment is up to 30% it'll still be that 30% that's to blame  for all societies woes and joe public will be screaming for deathcamps. That's how unemployment gets down to zero - we kill them. Eventually the population will level off at a couple of hundred rich wankers.

If it's any consolation, probably less than you may think.

Why be sneaky when you can just wait 8 weeks and get applauded for the exact same shit?

Anyone making predictions for the coming of Austerity 3.0? I'm guessing the NHS sold wholesale to US firms to begin with. They're already talking about selling the RBS stake "at a loss". I assume that will get sold to the usual suspects. Crapita and G4S are probably in line for some very tasty contracts in the near future too, as usual.

I expect Austerity 3.0 will be fairly - final solution. The rest depends what they're planning on doing with this island. Could be a manufacturing base, could be a tax haven, maybe a weapons platform. Here's the thing, unless they plump for a longpig hunting reserve, none of the options require anything like 64million-odd well fed primates. They used to need the working class, now they're just a drain on resources. Pretty soon they'll be an eyesore and that's when the cleanup crews arrive.

Dumb fucks will be begging for it, even as they're being shovelled into gas chambers. I'll be too busy laughing at them to have any sympathy. Or, hey, maybe I'm wrong and the future isn't going to happen here, in which case it'll be even funnier to watch everything revert to the stone age while everybody starves to death.

Remember back when that stinking dead cunt thatcher had to deal with millions of unemployed back in the 80's? Police state? Ghettos? These new tories will soon have a lot more than a paltry couple of million on their plate. This does not end well for the masses. At this point, as far as I'm concerned, they deserve it.

And I thought 2017 couldn't get any more fun  :sad:

If the debates go ahead and May isn't there that wouldn't be a good look either though right? I guess she's gotta weigh up how much of a savaging she's gonna get vs. not putting her point across at all.

Pretty sure the Tories don't give a damn about scandal any more.

Why should they? The electorate are conditioned to accept pretty much any shit their rulers want to throw them. Same as it was in the dark ages only now the peasants are much more docile and accepting of the situation. Revolution is less likely and any glimmer of activism can be deflected with a keypress. What's changed in the last couple of hundred years? Only one thing - propaganda is now 110% effective. Human beings are programmable drones. They always were but it took a while to figure out how to hack them. The exceptions to this rule? Outnumbered millions to one. You want to stand up and do something to change the situation? Good luck. Government inc. will flick a switch and the ten thousand people nearest you will start attacking you with clubs.

Personally I'd question the calibre of any scientist who figured turning up at an ICP gig to lecture on magnetism was a good use of their time. Kinda like that old Groucho quote about refusing to join any club that would have him as a member.

You would be surprised. Maybe.

Scientists tend to have very odd senses of humor, and NSF grants have an outreach requirement.

Showing up at an ICP concert to teach Juggalos about magnets totally counts toward that requirement.

I retract my previous statement in light of new evidence that suggests these dudes may well have known exactly what they were doing  :lulz:

our response always amounts to "J'ai une vagoo, what about you?"

And then I don't like that progressives like to turn around and make the same blanket assumptions about them

See my stance is rarely ever "us and them", per se. I make every possible effort to avoid having an "us" if at all possible. I see most liberals and/or progressives as dumbfuck assholes the exact same way I see most conservatives or right wingers as dumbfuck assholes. The question of which brand of retarded bullshit going on in their heads doesn't really matter since, historically speaking, right or left anything will very quickly round up subset - B and exterminate them if given half a chance.

It's most pro or anti abortionists that give either side a bad name, same as it's most anybody who's pro or anti anything that paints that cause in a bad light. You wanna pick a side and argue for that? Fine, just remember that you have now just joined all the retards that the dude you're trying to get through to has had it up to here with. Oh and that dude? He's probably a retard too and will refute your every statement with with the most retarded crock of shit you can imagine.

If it's anyone you have a chance of getting through to, they'll either be reasonably smart and usually somewhere near the fence and you'll be arguing over smallprint like how many months or else they're a total dumbfuck and you're probably as well just gaslighting shit out of them and leaving them to try and figure it out a bit better.

Anyway, shitpocalypse delayed at the last minute because division vice president is here next week and she wants to see it.

I have nerd blueballs.

Have patience and keep the faith. It won't be for long.

VIP in attendance? I'd be pushing for at least half a dozen test fountains just to make sure it all goes perfectly for the bigwigs  :evil:

...And that's another election on the way.

The UK was upset at not being allowed to make stupid decisions on an annual basis, apparently.

Result is a foregone conclusion, once again the UK leads the way in proving that your vote is less useless due FPTP.

The ultimate irony is May positioning herself as the brexit champion when around this time last year the silly bint was campaigning against exactly that.

With people like May and the fat orange yank twat it's becoming increasingly obvious that the people doing these jobs are more into the idea of being the most important and powerful celebrity in the world, rather than actually taking on the duties and responsibilities of being the boss of a formerly significant industrialised nation.

May is the classic - Johnny Rotten hawking whichever brand of margarine stumps up the most cash whereas Trump comes across as someone who never really thought through the fact that president would be a job that involved actually doing something beyond just being the powerfullest and importantest wanker in the world and grabbing all the pussy but the fact remains. Politicians aren't really governing any more, they're just grifting a fuck off big paycheck.

Mainly US and UK, right enough, I'm not talking about proper countries here.

Fucking magnets. How do you simulate them?  :eek:

Material scientists have predicted and built two new magnetic materials, atom-by-atom, using high-throughput computational models. The success marks a new era for the large-scale design of new magnetic materials at unprecedented speed.

So the latest news is they dropped a point release for Medium and now we can haz a whole bunch of new toys. Reference images is a game changer as is the addition of a roughness slider for the default material - doesn't sound like much but without it, everything looked like plastic.

I did a speedsculpt of the resurrection of christ cos it's easter and I'm feeling all religious and shit

It turns out you can run the entire utility plant from a smartphone.

Which is the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard of.  A triumph of technology over brains.

So, wait, you have an app for 40 foot poop geysers? You must be in heaven  :lulz:
