Yeah, there is an element of scariness and discomfort to the whole thing, for sure.

can anyone tell me what book (a friend of mine is trying to find the correct citation for his own book) one of the roberts, RAW, I think, writes about having a conversation with his father about what the most important thing is in life: The author in question writes about how he thinks it is imagination, and his father qualifies by saying that it's the "organization of imagination"?

The 'war on drugs' evolves into a form of 'battleship' targetting all non-productive desires.
[edit]
Drugs officially prescribed are instead delivered symbiotically by kisses (saliva exchange) of a subject's pet in accordance to whatever animal part was given to said pet as a treat.

One of the weird things about the simulation hypothesis is that if it's true, then our lives have objective meaning

Also, a simulated universe is definitely the product of intelligent design.


checkmate, atheists and absurdists

ME: I am more then just a data point in a bell curve.
GOD: Don't make me tap the graph.

God hasn't warned anyone about anything since the bronze age.  Can you blame him?  Do monkeys listen?  The fuck they do.
First, Moses dropped half the "tablets". Then we did away with the comandments dictating how we should relate to "the one". Now, now we can hardly even deal with each-other. Go figure.

I know I said yoink a long time ago but here's a thing
Takeaway: everyone reading this should open an exit node, and, only boot virtual on non state-sponsored OSs. The latter condition currently precludes tor, so. :horrormirth:

Pre-scriptum:
By this insistence on the word "console" I predict that you operate in a windows environment.
Hardly.  The last Microsoft OS I have significant experience was Windows 98.  Then I spent a couple years with RedHat, until I developed a deathly hatred for RPM, after which I switched to Gentoo, which I have been using ever since.  They let me use it at work, too, although most of my co-workers use Ubuntu.

From what I gather, 14665 does not require physical access and has been executed via SSH:
"OpenBSD #0day Xorg LPE via [...] 665 can be triggered from remote SSH"
@HaXOrFantastique

My initial reading on the subject was focussed on Linux, where it appears to be a local-only exploit, but on further searching, it appears that it can be remotely triggered on OpenBSD.  I partially retract my initial glibness.
what would make BSD remove that line of code from BSD update!

Hey guys, new (2 yo., via xorg) Linux BSD bug gives you root with one simple command:
CVE-2018-14665

I don't worry too much about exploits that require console access.  Unless the admin is paranoid, physical access is enough to hack most linux boxes with no more than a reboot.  Just set init=/bin/bash in the bootloader, and you're in.
you could remotely ssh and escalate any user to root without physical access or reboot privs. or, is ssh considered physical access?
