They should open the airports to drone racing 1 day a week, there is clearly demand for it
We could become world leaders

"You cannot ban drones"
Yes but 'they' can act out scenarios such as this to give a pretext to ban drones
This Machiavellianism is as old as the hills
1. Create problem
2. Offer Solution
Most people will read this comment and say to themselves "that's absurd", and that is correct it is absurd. Doesnt make it untrue though. I think most people rationalise that because its not something they would do, that someone else wouldnt either, and that there is the problem.
Hearts & Minds is not what you think it means, think 1984 doublespeak, and you're halfway there
False flag PSYOPS
Dont ask me why, just a gut feeling
It's a great distraction though for the 24hours news cycle
"All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages"...
The mechanics of all this is really quite simple...
Build software, market software, sell software, repeat cycle & increment version
Build software, market software, rent software (SAAS)
A similar thing is happening with gaming
Old old model:
Build arcade games, insert coin for 1UP
Build PC/console games, market games, sell games, repeat cycle & increment version
Build PC/console games, market games, either give games away for free or at a cost, add microtransactions as standard
Before we know it, we'll be back to the old old model
slowly slowly catchy monkey
This is all connected and I would not be surprised if in the (distant?) future, everything will be in the cloud, where it can be controlled, and owning anything except a dumb terminal will be illegal. Of course this just my conjecture and I am not saying this will happen, just saying it is an extrapolation of current trends as I perceive it
Their justifications for such salaries do not wash either
They say it's because they need to attract the best CEO talent in the market
Well that's fine, just don't expect other people to pay for it
This is the first thing I look at when deciding whether or not to donate my hard earned money to a cause
Gone are the days of charity, all we have now are businesses posing as charities
Some of them use the money to go into manufacturing and product design to further create revenue, it's fucking disgusting
I remember listening to a podcast some years back of a couple of security researchers talking about what the new year holds, and one of them said "there would be more corporate breaches", but the other corrected him, "there will be more corporates 'finding out' they've been breached"
In other words, most organisations have no idea what is going on inside their networks.
If I were a hacker, once in, I would pivot around for persistence, carefully shimmy around between the walls, listening to conversations and get an understanding of organisational relationships.
With this knowledge, I would formulate a plan to monetise my efforts
Literally all it would take is access to a admin O365 account with no 2FA enabled, which is probably all O365 admin accounts, considering Microshits shenanigans
Phishing is so much easier this way
Why use a net when you can use a sniper rifle
"THEN IT GOT REAL"
While that may be a cause and is worth consideration, I suspect the, (how do I put this?) "Reasons given, the pretext for wars, is increasingly being questioned, and also the reasons I gave earlier, awful treatment.
Those SAS soldiers that died of heat exhaustion, nobody went to prison for that, it was a HSE jurisdiction
That is wrong
The soldier that died of colon cancer, part of his job was cleaning the tanks, tanks fire depleted uranium shells. That too was a HSE jurisdiction
That is wrong
I could go on and on about this single subject for eternity. THAT is how awful the MOD are
My my, only 2 down votes
Maybe those two, and any others who wish to downvote facts, should read more of history
"The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA /ˈnæsə/) is an independent agency of the United States Federal Government"
I know this is not publically admitted, but NASA are basically a military organisation.
If you're shocked by this revelation, then you've been living under a rock
Space is strategic, shocker! IKR?
Interpret this however you please
I think the tabloids have rotted your brain
It's very easy to accuse someone of rape, and for it to be complete lies
I'm sure the women involved were rewarded for their loyalty
But lets not lose perspective here, this is about war crimes, pure and simple
You can try to shift the focus as much as you like, you're about as convincing as "Jihadi John"
Now fuck off
Look, I understand, you buy newspapers, you read newspapers
I suspect you probably also frequent a pub too, and talk to people in the pub
I can easily imagine you have a social media account of some kind and get all of your facts from there
Echo chambers are a wonderful thing, until someone from outside your echo chamber challenges your world view.
As to digging a hole, I literally have no idea what exactly you're referring to.
Sorry, I dont do cliques, maybe you do...
Shit my mistake, I of course do not know what I meant, and only you know
Can I get your contact details so I can run my thoughts through you to get clearance?
Exactly, why are you bothering about a grammatical error thats exists only in your head?
I meant queue, I typed queue, if I had intended to type cue I would have typed cue, if I had intended to type que, I also would have typed que. Which part of this do you not understand?
Lets get some perspective here for the benefit of all of the mindless drones with short memories that seem to be on this site (I feel bad saying that, but it's become pretty apparent)
The President during Operation Overlord, as part of his exit speech to the American people as president, warned of the military industrial complex.
I see the confusion, you assumed I meant something like "cue stage right" like as in a pantomime
I actually did mean queue, as in a line of people waiting for something
I know the current situation is very much like a pantomime, but I am very much talking about reality, and I dont mean the reality presented to you by the establishments news desks
Anyway, thank you for the correction even if it was misguided. I am quite happy to be corrected where I am wrong, if it can be backed up with something credible
REF: "Bullshit. They offered him a deal"
Are you saying that the USA is a country to be trusted?
I think YOU'RE looking for attention
I suspect in YOUR world, albeit it one you absorbed from the MSM without question, is that 9/11 was as it happened according to the MSM and the resulting aftermath was because of terrorists, and not corporate oil interests. The USA is a country who would happily turn a blind eye of a murdered journalist, because of money interests and carry on, business as usual. I mean why risk BILLION $ in weapons contracts
I think you're very naive to think that Julian Assange is anything other than a political prisoner in the United Kingdom
Queue the tabloid and Fauxnews muppets virtue signalling and regurgitating their echo chambers
In a world where deceit is universal, having an independent thought is revolutionary
I dare them to try thinking for themselves, even if only once in their lifetimes
I won't hold my breath though, some people are addicted to untruths covered in bile
I won't ask them to try critical thought, because their heads would implode and would make a right mess on the floor
I worked in a school once and this was a daily routine for me
Teacher: The computer doesnt work, can you come and take a look quickly as I am in lessons
Me: I turn up, check lights, yup PC on, monitor not on. Pushes button
Teacher: is that all it was?
Me: Yup, then walks away while the students giggling
I thought the teachers job was to enable students to learn, provide them with the skills needed to analyse and figure thinks out for themselves.
Clearly, I was mistaken. Because this teacher did not show any aptitude in this area
I just wish software houses stopped pushing out shit untested code
There needs to be a law and heavy fines, perhaps a fee to be paid for every patch issued.
Maybe, just maybe, they will invest in proper testing and QA, I suggest this cost comes straight from the shareholders dividend pot
Am I the only one who sees this for the very serious problem it is, I mean FFS we're likely to have automated cars soon, this clusterfuck in software development practice cannot continue in its current form
Where is the accountability?
This kid has clearly shown he has an ego problem
The fact he has admitted to having sociopathic traits is worrying, but hardly surprising in the modern world where numbers are increasing. Strange isn't it? if you reward lying and cheating, they go onto procreate and spawn more liars and cheaters. So I do think the 3% estimate needs to be re-evalued
I suspect that when he is released, he won't have learnt from the mistakes, will actually want revenge and will go onto repeat. I hope I am proven wrong, but let me tell you one really important thing about a loser sociopath, they fucking hate it, being a loser and will do anything, literally, the sky is not even the limit, "anything", to rectify the damage to their fragile ego
The hackers in the case of Yahoo, were balls deep for so long they were able to figure out how to forge their own cookies, so changing your password was pointless
If you're a BT customer, chances are you have a BT yahoo! mail account
I had to migrate every online account I had tied to that BT yahoo! address to Gmail
Isn't outsourcing and giving up all responsibility a wonderful thing?
I think the ICO fined Yahoo something like £0.50 per person affected in the UK
What a pathetic punishment
Why they didn't fine BT as well I do not know
Yes this is unethical
I suspect the middleman just wants to pay their bills/mortgage and keep a roof over their head and perhaps that of his/her family and you cant blame them, even if it is unethical
The real unethical thing here is the disingenuous nature of money
I remember a story about a guy who outsourced his own job to some guy in china and then sat in the office watching cat videos while the chinese guy did all the work for a lesser fee
He was commended for is ingenuity.
Can you see the point I am making here?
There is a connection if you look hard enough
Ethics is a woolly subject, just like the law
Example, the Iraq war was illegal
Then it wasnt
Attorney general changed their mind
Great, so you were fortunate enough to have been served by someone who gave a shit and thought to themselves, "your face fits"
You could very well of gone there another day and been served by a completely different personality and had a completely different experience. Companies dont make the people. People make the companies. Keep that in mind
The difference in opinions is really contrast when you compare BBC & TheReg Commentardery regarding this is exact subject, using the internetz for trivial none important things and then going into meltdown when it becomes unavailable
If I remember correctly, The exact comment "I was unable to post a picture of my breakfast on instagram/twitter/facebook/etc... this morning." on the BBC got heavily voted down
Is it safe to say that the great unwashed frequent the BBC more than here?
I would argue that a learned experience can be genetically encoded and be passed on from generation to generation. This would be a great explanation for a root cause of irrational fears, such as arachnophobia and claustrophobia
I can quite easily imagine one of our ancestors being trapped in an encosed space after an earth quake and for that experience to be genetically encoded and manifest itself in the form of an irrational fear in later generations
DNA is very adaptable, and it does this through feedback of the environment
To disagree with this, is to ignore your own nature
There are forms of life on this planet that have survived for billions of years
Humans have only been here for a short while, and some might argue not for much longer
It's also been posited that the reason we dont see 'advanced' intelligent life out in the universe is, that they are likely to have ended up destroying themselves.
Intelligence comes in many forms, and our inability to recognise this shows that we are unintelligent
Ai will be nothing like organic intelligence, it will be a super intelligence, able to make use of a scary array of sensors that our soft organic tissue cant begin to compete, super high frame rate sensors able to percieve in all kinds of wavelengths, infrared, even X-ray, processing speeds which makes moving objects look like they are going slowmo, can come in all shapes and sizes, be highly specialised, or general purpose.
You just cant compare Ai with organic intelligence, its not even the same thing
