Someone put a lot of work into making that website and it doesn't really say ANYTHING at all. Also I love the more or less meaningless, yet busy, "maps". They almost look like something that was created for a video game.

The premise is solid, though.  With some tweaking, it could be part of Original Story Ideas: a culture where the only way to keep one's bacterium levels stable in some otherworldly environment is constant analingus.

 :lulz:

That's promising.

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

This story deserves its own thread.

It's not really that good of a story... the guy was blanket opposed to GMOs, I asked him if he knew that most antibiotics and many medicines, including insulin, have been produced by GM bacteria for decades, and he said he was concerned about his microbiome. I told him to lick his partner, and that a little analingus wouldn't hurt.

It's on ECH's wall, if you want to see the whole boring thing unfold.

The whole website is AMAZING! It's like they took their cues from those business websites where you can never figure out exactly what it is that the business does. Clipart and everything.

I see many, many, many words, most of which are the equivalent of handwaving and platitudes. I only looked at the "food" and "economics" sections, but man...

WHAT IS HIGHEST GOOD ECONOMICS
The One Community definition of Highest Good economics is business that is specifically pursued with the intention and long-term focus to function for The Highest Good of All people and all life on this planet. These businesses are fair, proactive and forward-thinking, ecological, transparent in their function and operation, and they provide value while creating positive impacts individually, locally, and globally. As an organization we are focused on demonstrating and open source free-sharing duplicable RBE, for-profit, non-profit, and entrepreneurial economics models that specifically meet all of these criteria. In so doing, they will function as a foundation of demonstrating that living and creating for The Highest Good of All can function proactively in existing competitive markets, free people from debt, and provide developing teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities on-going capital for upkeep and further expansion.

If you can pin down any specific aspect of their proposed economic system from that, you're one ahead of me.

I'm inclined to believe they weren't edited, because quite frankly if they were the revelations would be a lot more damaging.  But Wikileaks does not give any fucks either way regarding the possibility, apparently, or else they would have noticed the same thing and asked for the raw files.

Wikileaks aside for the moment, is not the hack in and of its-self, regardless on contents revealed, an indication of general security arrangements? Clinton has had plenty of shit of late over email severs and possible security lapses so I'd suggest that part of the motive is just to feed that narrative more. "Oh look, now they've left X accessible, she can't possibly be trusted with national security". I think this may be one of those unusual hacks where it's not so much about any information, just pointing out that X is not as secure as X claims, indirectly boosting Y's credentials.

The fun will really start if there's some kind of Trump hack because you just know so much of his material is going to be quite libellous.

Clinton doesn't run the DNC, so that line of logic would be quite a stretch. Then again, people seem to have bought that some random staffer inadvertently inserted Michelle Obama's speech into Melania Trump's speech and somehow, nobody noticed until after it was delivered, sooo...

OpenMW + SSD = no crashing.  I have a hoptoad ring, but I need to work on my acrobatics skill some still.

Also just raised my intelligence to godlike levels last night to enchant a pair of trousers.  They give me a constant restore stamina effect.  I call them my "jogging pants".  This seems an appropriate use of raising my intelligence to unimaginable and superhuman levels.

Well, at least it's not just Roger he's freaking out on and sending creepy ranty FB messages to. Wow.

Oh duuuuude. Dimo, no.

Bernie's delegates are absolutely freaking out at his speech right now.

So I went to the Costume Designers Guild table yesterday before I left the con, and they saw my ribbon. One girl handed me a pack of patterns for free: McCalls "cosplay" patterns which are rehashes of their really terrible ren fair designs that I outgrew about 10 years ago.  :kingmeh: So, I handed them back with a "thanks, but no thanks," took a copy of their journal and some coupons for fabric, and left.

Then I saw John Barrowman pantsless, so things were fine, really.

Well, you can't blame the little people for not comprehending skills that are beyond their ken.

Apparently the gathering of the juggalos is coming to Denver in 2017.

Fuck you, Monday.

Duuuuuude I want to go to that so bad!


Someday.

You've a couch or air mattress in boulder if you want it. You might go alone into the breach.

Thanks!

So, more than Mario Batali or Alain Ducasse, but less than Gordon Ramsay, Rachael Ray, Wolfgang Puck, and Paula Deen.

Sorry, didn't know what else to compare him to except TV chefs, I am kind of out of the reality-tv loop.
