No. MSE is almost but not quite useless at actual protection. I feel ashamed for relying on it for my personal computer to be honest. I would never entrust it to protect a business.
a natural home remedy I like to use is the McRib Cleanse
flush the toxins from ur body by flooding it with McRibs and Diet Dr Pepper
I'm on the list for a Tesla SUV and am building a house that is going to incorporate the powerwall.
I'm a huge fan of what he's doing.
I remember reading something from Greg Palast as well:
There is a legend told among the Inupiat Alaskans who live above the Arctic Circle, “Etok Tames the Green People.” It goes like this:
In the Old Days, as today, the peoples on the edge of the Arctic Sea killed whales. It’s just what they do. It’s what they eat. But the Green People didn’t like that, and so the Green People set out one day in their fancy-ass black powerboat to stop the people of the Arctic Sea from doing their whale killing thing.
It was a long, long time ago in 1979. The elders tell us how the Green People showed up outside the Inupiat Native village of Kaktovik in their black powerboat and set out their stores of vegetables on the beach. The Green People only ate green food. The Green People then set off in their black powerboat on their blubber-saving mission, with a plan to block the Eskimo’s bidarka whaling ship. Quick as a Raven’s wink, they got lost in a fog bank and stuck in the ice sheet. Prepared, committed, and resourceful, the Green People set out their pup tents on the ice floe and slept, hoping for the fog to lift in the morning.
But they were not lost. The Inupiat of the Arctic Sea knew exactly where the Green People were. Etok, the great whale hunter, told his villagers to accept the gift of the Green People and take all their vegetables. Etok then told his people to be patient, and, elders say, they lit up some excellent weed, put on Bob Dylan tapes, and waited.
During the summer the sun never sets in the Inupiat land. It just rolls around the sky in a Circle. And under the gyrating sun, the Greens’ expensive boat, being black, absorbed the radiant heat, melted the ice holding it and drifted out into the endless Sea.
By three a.m., the wait was over, and the patient Eskimo leader told his people to go and retrieve the lost black boat, call the Coast Guard, and claim it as abandoned property.
In the morning, the Green People awoke, still in fog, and did not see their boat, their boat with their emergency radio and food. The Green People drifted on their block of ice, lost and doomed. Etok told his people not to move, that the Green People must “cry themselves out” and obtain the wisdom that comes with accepting your certain death by starvation, hypothermia, or polar bear.
The Inupiat of the Arctic Sea waited an entire day. Then another day and another day.
On the fourth day, Etok figured the Green People were now wise enough, hungry enough, and thirsty enough. He ordered his people to rescue them. “They are vegetarians,” the wise Etok explained to his people and ordered them to bring many buckets of mikiaq, fermented whale meat in congealed blood. The hungry Green People ate the whale, no longer giving a shit that it was some goddamned endangered species. The Inupiat told them it was not wise to enter the Native boats. The rescue party had brought along a filthy crude-oil barge for the frozen Green People to ride.
The Natives dumped the Green People at Dead Horse, where White People take petroleum from Prudhoe Bay. The Green People, whose lesson had been taught to them without their knowing, thanked the Inupiat for saving their lives. And from that day forward, Greenpeace protected the Natives’ right to kill whales as in the Old Days, and joined the Inupiat people in fighting their competitors, the commercial whalers or, as the Natives call them, “the fucking Japanese.”
Etok is one bad-ass Eskimo.
and the rest of you fogeys are in bed by 8PM PST anyway
Started messaging some of my old work colleagues at Charter about this yesterday. There was a TON of work done by my old group as far as positioning the network for this deal and the areas that would be swapped with Comcast, all of which would become worthless, and a lot of work needing to be done to reverse some of the things already done. I'm laughing at them, and they are not too happy right now, lol.
that's like saying 'oh this basketball rim we're letting you throw in for prizes has a randomized chance of just closing the second you release the ball' and people being ok with it. People know the balls are a little wonky (over or underinflated), the rim is bent a lil, and it's a bad angle, but they'd be losing their minds if you just said 'fuck you, random dice-roll says you physically cannot win on this throw'.
Big Liz should get on this shit
I wouldn't be surprised at all if carnies could manipulate outcomes on at least some of the games in real time. Manipulate angles/distances so you pay out when there's a crowd.
