No-one talks about what happened in Africa.
under no circumstances should any Jewish state be allowed to defend itself
...Dragging pro-cleaning operations via mechanized armies by ultranationalist religious nutcases into a discussion about PKD
...Being that kind of an asshat
His brothers had been killed in ‘44, strangled with wire by British commandos, the Long Range Desert Group which had operated behind Axis lines and which had become especially fanatic during the last phases of the war when it was clear that the Allies could not win.
“How do you feel about the British now?” she asked haltingly.
Joe said, “I’d like to see them do to England what they did in Africa.” His tone was flat.
“But it’s been—eighteen years,” Juliana said. “I know the British especially did terrible things. But—”
“They talk about the things the Nazis did to the Jews,” Joe said. “The British have done worse. In the Battle of London.” He became silent. “Those fire weapons, phosphorus and oil; I saw a few of the German troops, afterward. Boat after boat burned to a cinder. Those pipes under the water—turned the sea to fire. And on civilian populations, by those mass fire-bombing raids that Churchill thought were going to save the war at the last moment. Those terror attacks on Hamburg and Essen and—”
“Let’s not talk about it,” Juliana said. In the kitchen, she started cooking bacon; she turned on the small white plastic Emerson radio which Frank had given her on her birthday. “I’ll fix you something to eat.” She dialed, trying to find some light, pleasant music.
Very difficult, as typically for PKD, this has less to do with Nazis as with the exploration of "inner space" and the frankly Jungian connections between what we perceive and how that perception seems to alter what is real. There is lots of internal monologue in that story (and the style of that monologue is important), something which can never be rendered on-screen. No, "hard boiled" voice-overs don't work.
Still, I wish success.
You forget about Tiananmen all over the world.
(Then you forget about Lybian Liberation all over the world. Then you forget about Iraq all over the world. Then you forget about the world. It's like Philip K. Dick's "Eye in the Sky".)

TFW. Choose one.
Well, we now know how TERRISTS are CLASSIFIED:
The Secret (but UNCLASSIFIED) Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist by Jeremy Scahill and Ryan Devereaux
There is even a download of the same... 166 pages. No, I won't read it. It's like something amanfrommars would write.
It is easily possible to find some ACTIONABLE INTELLIGENCE based on articulable and REASONABLE SUSPICION duly signalled by a NOMINATOR who provides PARTICULARIZED DEROGATORY INFORMATION on Mr. Dabbs.
So when will PostgreSQL Global Development Group actually move into the 21st century and manage to set up a bug tracking database?
I herewith declare the downvoters as retards and fools.
>The satelites would get fried
> Most electronic that isn't shielded would also fail as induction currents from the magnetic storm we'd get from the CME hitting fries all the delicate components
Someone is confusing CMEs with a Magnetar going off 10 light-years away and it ain't me.
No. It wouldn't even be affected if switched on.
That's pure Hollywood drama. I demand Bratt Pitt!
So basically, worldwide EMP.
Not at all. Collapse of large parts of the electrical grid due to induction in large conductor loops, sure. Cities will become a bit difficult to live in for a few months; it would actually bring home to the yanks what it means to be on the receiving end of a "shock and awe" and a "mission accomplished". On the other hand, what will be up pretty much immediately will be GPS and battery-powered computers. Until the batteries run out, that is.
Meanwhile, I hear the Ebola breakout in Sierra Leone is intensifying...
Exactly. It cost some pension funds and small investors $300 million (because hey guess who is gonna hold the bag in the end on "trader's" losses).
All the skilled people are working on the Obamacare databases ... oh, wait!
"The Bureau of Consular Affairs has been experiencing technical problems with our passport and visa system," Marie Harf, deputy spokesperson for the State Department, said in a press briefing on Thursday. "The issue is worldwide, not specific to any particular country."
If Marie opens her mouth, she is saying something between a half-truth and an outright lie with probability close to 1.
Though I cannot fathom what she is trying to retruthify here.
Whenever you check under the raised floor and find a body down there.
Those were better times.
W Bush wanted to return to the moon
which was a good idea. until elected a second time.
There was never any serious attempt to do anything along these lines. Or if there was, you can find it underneath an office carpet. The guy had a surge to implement, dontcha know.
Putn would not stoop to using that fact to his own advantage?
Welcome to Capitalism, yank!
Basically you fit a shaped charge ring around the top and bottom and cut both ends off.
Brilliant idea, but you have to hope that it's Bruce Willis or Putin (or both) flying the shuttle at that moment. You sure won't be able to trust structural integrity of the exterior LOX/LH tank. Or the Shuttle wings.
Just one lighting was one of the nightmare scenarios...
Probably called a "half-circular excursion arc"?
Meanwhile, take a wank at CNN:
NASA's Harold White has been working since 2010 to develop a warp drive that will allow spacecraft to travel at speeds faster than light -- 186,000 miles per second. White, who heads NASA's Advanced Propulsion Team, spoke about his conceptual starship at a conference last fall. But interest in his project reached a new level this week when he unveiled images of what the craft might look like.
This, this is what counts as progress today - CGI imagery, fantasy and make-believe.
But the savings will be immediately allocated for the War against the Caliphate, the War against the Emirate, the Pacific Pivot or The Other NATO Expansion. I despair.
As long as you land next to the chinese restaurant, all is ok.
Putin to Langley: "Who do you think we are, native americans?"
He's that old?
but there's no evidence that they were put there for any reason other than poor engineering
I find this hard to swallow. Especially as it is Apple.
"Earlier you said you were banging your mother?"
So basically Eliza in Camo?
YO! The 80s want their wordplays back.
You may notice that WWII was started to guarantee that the german town of Danzig remained in Poland, but ended with Poland ravaged and handed to Stalin on a platter while the lying liar FDR maintained to the end (which is to say, until the presidential elections were over and had obtained the polish vote) that Poland would be get a dose of freedom and that Stalin had jolly well agreed to this. This was then followed up with operation Keelhaul, about which the less said the better.
Any correlations with current events are totally unintended and no animals are being harmed.
“I want to be very clear that we are not introducing new powers or capabilities – that is not for this Parliament. This is about restoring two vital measures ensuring that our law enforcement and intelligence agencies maintain the right tools to keep us all safe.”
Like McDonalds, bland bullshit for undiscerning consumers can now be found worldwide.
When these guys are done with their Wall Street fellations, expect Asians to step into the breach.
Once the upcoming crash has been weathered of course.
But Gruyère has no holes.
I got a buffer overrun when I read that.
Clearly you have been coded before the advent of high-level languages and the wide dissemination of security-conscious coding techniques.
The doctor recommends that you better not frequent malword-ridden lowbrow sites like El Reg.
Indeed. They are changing the baddie-of-the-week too quickly nowadays; better visit often to keep oneself informed.
But then you suddenly feel the irrational need to transfer two thousand five hundred (2500) USD via Western Union money transfer to a lonely lady in the southern lands so that she may buy a plane ticket.
Soon on Stack Overflow?
there is a real life
If you step out of your front door somebody knows what you look like. Get online and someone knows what you've been looking at and browsing for.
Brain meets floor at first sentence.
Because Not looking into everyone's nether regions == Negligence
Yes, this is 2014.
I raise you a Trilateral Commission!
Sofort mit diesem Geplauder aufhören! LAUT AUFSCHREI!
Lucky the germans had only mastered Hollerith cards back then. The Blitzkrieg would have transformed into a Gammastrahlenausbruchkrieg. Dodged a bullet.
