    Jun 6, 2017 11:24 AM - Gatecrasher: Although it's not pleasant to have knife wielding assassins rampaging in the streets...
    Jun 6, 2017 11:24 AM - Gatecrasher: Over the last 10 years 2006-2016 there were 1.4 deaths per year in the UK due to terrorism - which means you're more likely to be killed by dogs (18 deaths per year), hot water (100 deaths per year) or dementia (61,000)
    Jun 6, 2017 11:30 AM - Gatecrasher: (Dementia is probably TV or You Tube related)
    Jun 6, 2017 11:31 AM - Gatecrasher: not if the Baron refuses to dig their grave
    Jun 6, 2017 12:32 PM - Gatecrasher: what are the figures on Iraqi children deaths since the invasion?
    Jun 6, 2017 12:35 PM - Gatecrasher:
    Jun 6, 2017 4:42 PM - Gatecrasher: So there is incarnate soul longevity but for very different reasons.
    Jun 6, 2017 4:50 PM - Gatecrasher: please exsplain
    Jun 6, 2017 5:10 PM - Gatecrasher: Unless of course you mean that samedi 'refusing to bury' a soul is a narrative for explaining why there are those that do not die normally.
    Jun 6, 2017 5:11 PM - Gatecrasher: That do not die because they are 'evolved', transmuted, godlike or...dare I say....cursed.
    Jun 6, 2017 5:13 PM - Gatecrasher: Sorry state of affairs all round.
    Jun 6, 2017 5:13 PM - Gatecrasher: :)

    Jun 11, 2017 11:39 AM - Gatecrasher: kettle's on!
    Jun 11, 2017 6:02 PM - Gatecrasher: beach is so tranquil when you fly a kite
    Jun 11, 2017 6:03 PM - Gatecrasher: and think of me

    Jun 12, 2017 4:48 AM - edina: To be honest, I still prefer my little hiking trail here in the foothills of the Rockies. :)
    Jun 12, 2017 4:49 AM - edina: However, a neighbor called this morning, warning us about a bear bigger than he's ever seen. I wonder if it's a grisly. Something to consider, I suppose.
    Jun 12, 2017 4:50 AM - edina: Still took my walk, though. (shrug)

    Jun 14, 2017 3:52 PM - edina: My heart goes out to the people of London, once again. Something feels very off about this, does it to you, too? http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-40269625
    Jun 14, 2017 4:38 PM - Gatecrasher: Virgina now too
    Jun 14, 2017 4:57 PM - Gatecrasher: Edina, that is exactly the reaction that videoclips and raw footage used as a headline story in the USA is designed to elicit. If it is the top story, than it must be major world news, right?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:03 PM - Gatecrasher: There is a lot more going on around the world than solely in the USA or UK, so why is it that only certain countries and their stories become sensationalized do you think.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:03 PM - edina: I mentioned it here, because I know there are people from the UK in this forum. But, let's talk about your point, or maybe explore it. Because I think there is something to it.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:04 PM - edina: Are you coming from the perspective of what I call, "mockingbird media"?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:05 PM - edina: The repetitive media talking points that dominate whatever is the determined news of the day?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:05 PM - edina: Or are you coming from the point of view of there's more to the world than US and UK?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:06 PM - edina: Or both?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:06 PM - edina: There's lots going on in the world. What is most concerning to you at this point?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:08 PM - Gatecrasher: What did you mean by 'something feels very off about this' event?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:09 PM - edina: Well, people are reporting that the alarms didn't go off? That's raises a red flag for me, for one.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:10 PM - edina: It feels fabricated. I mean it's real, and it horrendous to the people experiencing it, but there is what I describe as a 'disconnect' in the flow of energy around this event. That is the "off" feeling. I think.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:11 PM - edina: Still pondering it. I think the media is used a lot to manipulate the masses toward particular outcomes. So, maybe it's just my bias?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:11 PM - Gatecrasher: my heart goes out to the people who lost everything there but not to the people of London, that is a meme of vacuous proportions
    Jun 14, 2017 5:12 PM - edina: okay
    Jun 14, 2017 5:16 PM - Gatecrasher: Remember, the media is very good at pulling at people's heart strings to get a certain result - ratings. And you are now just but one example of someone that eats it all up and propagates it.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:18 PM - edina: Right, :rolleyes: (you're preaching to the choir right now, even if you don't know it.)
    Jun 14, 2017 5:19 PM - edina: I'm not the example of what you describe. LOL..
    Jun 14, 2017 5:20 PM - edina: But, let's continue the discussion about how media manipulates, if you want, I feel it's an important topic.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:20 PM - Gatecrasher: Thank you for being so open. Current meme is 'my heart goes out to the people' for xyz. Similar to a religion. 'Amen'.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:21 PM - edina: that's more your interpretation of my words, so it's more likely your meme, than mine,
    Jun 14, 2017 5:21 PM - edina: your issue , perhaps??
    Jun 14, 2017 5:23 PM - Gatecrasher: it is a fact of the last 2 years in social media, twitter whatever.. this inane enfolding of whole cities in the arms of the memedia.. like the whole city is weeping. to paris to orlando to manchester. it is a new phenomenon and it is vacuous. the poor individuals are weeping, the city is not.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:24 PM - edina: so you object to the imprecision of the language? Am I understanding you correctly?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:25 PM - Gatecrasher: to the regurjitation of a meme
    Jun 14, 2017 5:28 PM - edina: hmmm... in my opinion, many people in London and the UK have been affected by the fire event, not just the individuals directly involved. My statement was meant to be inclusive of anyone who felt affected, rather than regurgitating a meme as you say. It is your choice to choose to be offended, I can't really control how you think. Others may have taken it the way I intended it.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:28 PM - edina: Do you mean to discourage an honest reaching out to people?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:28 PM - Gatecrasher: mass 'hysteria' often created by the media for a fraction of individuals that live on this planet of nearly 8 BILLION people currently
    Jun 14, 2017 5:29 PM - edina: to be clear, I do not feel "hysteria".
    Jun 14, 2017 5:30 PM - Gatecrasher: so you are not open to looking at this then?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:30 PM - edina: Last year, my husband went everyday for a month to sit with a dying friend. One person suffering. Reaching out in kindness, regardless of the numbers does not constitute hysteria
    Jun 14, 2017 5:31 PM - edina: well, let's look at the issue then, rather than find false fault with me
    Jun 14, 2017 5:31 PM - Gatecrasher: it is simply ridiculous to send your heart out to a whole city.. as millions of twitter and facebook users do too
    Jun 14, 2017 5:32 PM - Gatecrasher: i was not offended i was merely pointing out how vacuous the meme is
    Jun 14, 2017 5:33 PM - Gatecrasher: and it is indeed a very very vacuous meme. your free speech remains intact as does mine
    Jun 14, 2017 5:34 PM - edina: Because this is an issue I think about, a lot!!!
    Jun 14, 2017 5:34 PM - Gatecrasher: and no, it is not 'false' fault it is accurate observation from having to sit through watching the meme grow
    Jun 14, 2017 5:34 PM - edina: my computer just slowed way down...
    Jun 14, 2017 5:34 PM - edina: took forever for that to post
    Jun 14, 2017 5:35 PM - Gatecrasher: i am now off to post a red blue and white filter on my facebook image.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:35 PM - edina: LOL
    Jun 14, 2017 5:35 PM - edina: they have rainbow PRIDE frames now too
    Jun 14, 2017 5:36 PM - edina: my niece posted a skulls frame, a whole industry will be popping up for that now
    Jun 14, 2017 5:37 PM - edina: I had hoped to discuss the "media" issue. It now seems you were more interested in what you think is a vacuous meme.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:38 PM - Gatecrasher: well now we have pointed out the way memes can be picked up uniwttingly like viruses yes, let's talk about the media manipulations
    Jun 14, 2017 5:38 PM - Gatecrasher: and what you found off about it
    Jun 14, 2017 5:39 PM - edina: when I say those words, my words, not what you think in terms of a meme, I am actually doing something energetic, physcial, substantive with those words. In many people's cases, it may be vacuous, in mine, I'm doing something very real with it, and not religious.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:40 PM - edina: There's an interesting thing that happened here in the US yesterday.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:41 PM - edina: A Senator pushed for a vote of whether to fund the 100Billion deal that was so grandly announced in Saudi Arabia. He didn't support funding that deal.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:41 PM - edina: Neither do I, but I undersand the complexity of ... how do you grow jobs in a war-based economy without funding weapons deals?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:42 PM - edina: The problem is systemic.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:42 PM - edina: The vote passed by 5 votes, Ron Paul, stated 5 Democrats. But his point was that both parties were war parties.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:44 PM - edina: So, the fear must be mongered to generate justification for wars which calls for more weapons.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:44 PM - edina: A downward spiral for most of humanity. Profiting a few.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:44 PM - edina: What's your thought about how this happens? Through media?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:46 PM - edina: And maybe, how can this be turned around?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:48 PM - edina: Maybe, I'm way off on my thinking about this. Please let me know what you think?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:52 PM - edina: Another way to look at that vote is that it almost didn't fund the deal. Which is something I'm thinking about, too.
    Jun 14, 2017 5:52 PM - edina: 5 votes is a slim margin
    Jun 14, 2017 5:53 PM - edina: Will an economy grown on building infrastructure be enough to offset an economy grown on war?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:53 PM - edina: Also, is that way of thinking completely bogus?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:54 PM - edina: Is there a completely different, outside-the-box way of looking at this that changes the whole dynamic?
    Jun 14, 2017 5:58 PM - edina: I look forward to hearing what others think, for now, "airhead" Dinny is off to walk the dogs and breath in Infinity. :D
    Jun 14, 2017 6:00 PM - Gatecrasher: Let me quote you. "edina: And maybe, how can this be turned around?”
    Jun 14, 2017 6:00 PM - Gatecrasher: Has anyone ever questioned why an economy NEEDS to grow.. don't we have enough stuff already? Will we never be content with the essence of life rather than the substance of it? Shall we stop when the world has 12 Billion, or 100 Billion people. Is the answer contraction where less is more or do we just keep on keeping on until we have covered the earth in concrete and plastic Hula Hoops
    Jun 14, 2017 6:00 PM - Gatecrasher: This can be turned around by individuals not falling into the trap of giving flow to false multi-faceted issues by disseminating information that is more often than not based on fallacies - find out for yourself what lays behind the beast instead of a blind ‘belief’ .
    Jun 14, 2017 6:04 PM - Gatecrasher: (blame it on my ISP, wink)
    Jun 14, 2017 6:06 PM - Gatecrasher: lol
    Jun 14, 2017 6:06 PM - Gatecrasher: (LOL)
    Jun 14, 2017 6:07 PM - Gatecrasher: p.s. how many of us are here - the abandoned children as GC I wonder?
    Jun 14, 2017 6:08 PM - Gatecrasher: My ISP yeah you won't know me. Its a song, please ignore lol
    Jun 14, 2017 6:10 PM - Gatecrasher: counting then... here's ONE
    Jun 14, 2017 6:10 PM - Gatecrasher: TWO
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: three
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: going once
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: ooh
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: wait i have spasms
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: a menage!
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: four
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: fuck
    Jun 14, 2017 6:11 PM - Gatecrasher: FIVE
    Jun 14, 2017 6:12 PM - Gatecrasher: That is already too many of us to have any sensible opinion, in my opinion.
    Jun 14, 2017 6:12 PM - Gatecrasher: will it help if I leave.. it might actually raise the IQ
    Jun 14, 2017 6:13 PM - Gatecrasher: no, keep it low. and dirty
    Jun 14, 2017 6:13 PM - Gatecrasher: your opinion is only valid in the sense that it probably has no validity
    Jun 14, 2017 6:13 PM - Gatecrasher: (in my opinion)
    Jun 14, 2017 6:16 PM - Gatecrasher: and that's another Halestorm, Mz Hyde
    Jun 14, 2017 6:20 PM - Gatecrasher:
    Jun 14, 2017 7:35 PM - edina: Just wondering, do any of these anonymous GC know each other and have conversations with each other outside of PIT?
    Jun 14, 2017 7:38 PM - edina: To answer the GC about the questioning of the assumption of "GROWtH" as a foundation for the economy. YES, I have, for good long while now. I was just having a conversation with someone about it yesterday.
    Jun 14, 2017 7:39 PM - edina: .... Have you been listening in on my conversations? LOL :D
    Jun 14, 2017 7:39 PM - edina: So we had 5 GC's and fuck... I missed the fun.
    Jun 14, 2017 8:21 PM - Gatecrasher: Yes, I have been listening Edina.. the walls have ears - bruhahahahaaaa
    Jun 14, 2017 8:22 PM - Gatecrasher: Christ
    Jun 14, 2017 8:23 PM - Gatecrasher: It's clearly a too-much-news day
    Jun 14, 2017 8:26 PM - Gatecrasher: well, fake news
    Jun 14, 2017 8:26 PM - Gatecrasher: :)
    Jun 14, 2017 8:27 PM - Gatecrasher: What is 'news'?
    Jun 14, 2017 8:27 PM - Gatecrasher: it's old stuff that isn't quite old enough to have that name yet

    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:27 PM - Gatecrasher: Is it the opposite of 'olds'?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:27 PM - Gatecrasher: who would bother to read the "olds"
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:28 PM - Gatecrasher: "fake olds" just doesn't have the traction
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Gatecrasher: You know when people post those "on this day in 1824" things?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Gatecrasher: yeah...
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Gatecrasher: go on..
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Gatecrasher: You could do it that way
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Gatecrasher: Fake olds
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:31 PM - Gatecrasher: How's the cat?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:32 PM - Gatecrasher: 5 letters and it ain't kitten (which is 6 anyhoo)
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:32 PM - Gatecrasher: Great? Or Shite?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:33 PM - Gatecrasher: anyway, Gatecrasher, is that really you.. or is it any old (new) gatecrasher
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:33 PM - Gatecrasher: It's me.
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:33 PM - Gatecrasher: i'm just a fakecrasher
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:34 PM - Gatecrasher: I'm a habitual crasher of gates
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:35 PM - Gatecrasher: I know, it wakes me up at night
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:35 PM - Gatecrasher: shhhh
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:35 PM - Gatecrasher: The cat?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:36 PM - Gatecrasher: 3 crashers
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:38 PM - Gatecrasher: Pussy Galore
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:38 PM - Gatecrasher: On Roller skates
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:40 PM - Gatecrasher: I just made the mistake of googling "pussy on skates" and I now regret it
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:40 PM - Gatecrasher: a lot
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:40 PM - Gatecrasher: Haaaaaa
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:40 PM - Gatecrasher: Oh dear
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:41 PM - Gatecrasher: I sense an image link is on the way.
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:52 PM - edina: where have I heard this before "bruhahahahaaaa" .... oh dear :rolleyes:
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:53 PM - edina: besides the assumption of "Growth" what other assumptions are there about 'economy'?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:53 PM - edina: :idea:
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:55 PM - edina: so I asked a friend from the UK about this fire and the talk is about how the tennants had been complaining about safety concerns for months.
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:55 PM - edina: the problem was shoddy standards and cost cutting
    Jun 14, 2017 at 8:56 PM - edina: is that the consensus here?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:00 PM - edina: if it's social engineering, what directions, actions, ect... are people being steered toward?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:01 PM - edina: and does it even matter?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:02 PM - edina: What about what's happening in Venezuela? You don't see it in the news cycle much. Any thoughts?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:03 PM - edina: Or the Phillipines, with Duerte and the uprising there? Or the Russian riots?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:03 PM - edina: The patterns of it all?
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:05 PM - edina: Granted, not nearly as much FUN as talking about cats on wheels, so, I'll eff off now and get working on other things.
    Jun 14, 2017 at 9:06 PM - edina: :D

    Jun 15, 2017 5:48 PM - Gatecrasher: Oh wow. Missus Edina swore: "Yesterday - edina: So we had 5 GC's and fuck... I missed the fun."
    Jun 15, 2017 5:48 PM - Gatecrasher: How elegant.
    Jun 15, 2017 5:48 PM - Gatecrasher: I liked it
    Jun 15, 2017 7:28 PM - Gatecrasher: since when was 'fuck' a sweary mary word?
    Jun 15, 2017 7:28 PM - Gatecrasher: To gatecrasher that said this: "Gatecrasher: 3 crashers" - how do you know it was 3 ?
    Jun 15, 2017 7:29 PM - Gatecrasher: I mean I can personally confirm that there was myself and another one
    Jun 15, 2017 7:30 PM - Gatecrasher: because I know that not all what was said was me
    Jun 15, 2017 7:30 PM - Gatecrasher: So to summy it up, as far as I am personally aware, a minimum of 2 and maximum of more than 2

    Jun 16, 2017 7:39 AM - Ciganka: I cannot decide which one of JJL's secrets I like the best, but I am pretty sure I can see all of them being legit. ;)
    Jun 16, 2017 7:46 AM - Gatecrasher: here's a swearburst for the 21st century..hell-fire-shit-bugger-piss-cock-fart

    Jun 16, 2017 11:49 AM - jjl: yes Cig, they are all true
    Jun 16, 2017 4:40 PM - Gatecrasher: what do you mean by they are all true? Are you referring to what Carlin is saying or something different?
    Jun 16, 2017 5:47 PM - jjl: it was n response to Cigs observation of myb"secrets" thread
    Jun 16, 2017 6:49 PM - Gatecrasher: What "secretes" thread? Link?
    Jun 16, 2017 6:56 PM - Gatecrasher: http://www.obskure.info/threads/whats-your-secret-tell-us-something-we-dont-know-about-you.125/
    Jun 16, 2017 7:01 PM - Gatecrasher: thanks for the link
    Jun 16, 2017 7:06 PM - Gatecrasher: By the way jjl, all those secrets you posted in your thread with anyone else - these are no longer secrets LOL
    Jun 16, 2017 7:07 PM - Gatecrasher: Are gatecrashers allowed to post secrets in the no longer secret thread?
    Jun 16, 2017 7:08 PM - Gatecrasher: gatecrashers can post in any thread
    Jun 16, 2017 7:09 PM - Gatecrasher: really? oh ok thanks.

    Jun 16, 2017 7:15 PM - Gatecrasher: edina, didn't sign in to answer your questions, Hi Jack.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:16 PM - Gatecrasher: thanks I might post something as a gatecrasher then.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:16 PM - Gatecrasher: Do you live at the back, Jack?
    Jun 16, 2017 7:17 PM - Gatecrasher: What do you mean?
    Jun 16, 2017 7:17 PM - Gatecrasher: the above is not edina, if I comment anymore in the Pit right now, I will sign in and comment under my name. :)
    Jun 16, 2017 7:18 PM - edina: Multiple GC's can get confusing sometimes
    Jun 16, 2017 7:21 PM - edina: I had just popped by just now and saw the question, and thought to answer them real quick. Off now, feel free to chat. It's a cool thing Wango set up, for anyone to just chat as they choose. :)
    Jun 16, 2017 7:22 PM - edina: And for anyone to reply in threads, too.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:23 PM - edina: Good day Jack, and other GC. (hi)
    Jun 16, 2017 7:24 PM - Gatecrasher: this is Jack again. So for the other gatecrasher that will sign in who the heck are ya.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:27 PM - Gatecrasher: In any case, I do not live at the back whatever that means.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:32 PM - edina: hey Jack, sorry. I'm the GC who said I would sign in if I comment anymore. I don't who it was that asked you if you lived in the back. And I don't know what that means either.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:34 PM - Gatecrasher: Yeah, that is who I was talking to Edina not you.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:34 PM - edina: okay, great, thanks
    Jun 16, 2017 7:34 PM - Gatecrasher: It's ok, no problem at all.
    Jun 16, 2017 7:35 PM - edina: :)
    Jun 16, 2017 7:38 PM - Gatecrasher: It's a song by Manfred Mann
    Jun 16, 2017 7:39 PM - Gatecrasher: Sorry no...This
    Jun 16, 2017 7:39 PM - Gatecrasher:
    Jun 16, 2017 7:41 PM - Gatecrasher: weird song, but ok, whatever your taste in music is
    Jun 16, 2017 7:41 PM - Gatecrasher: He lives at the back of the Greta Garbot home for wayward boys and girls
    Jun 16, 2017 7:41 PM - Gatecrasher: Ah...A young gc
    Jun 16, 2017 7:44 PM - Gatecrasher: Young?
    Jun 16, 2017 7:44 PM - Gatecrasher: Are you old then?
    Jun 16, 2017 7:48 PM - Gatecrasher: [​IMG]
    Jun 16, 2017 8:09 PM - Gatecrasher: Here is a better song for ya
    Jun 16, 2017 8:09 PM - Gatecrasher:
    Jun 16, 2017 8:18 PM - Voda: well halo every-one
    Jun 16, 2017 8:18 PM - Voda: i was going to post something but i forgot to remember
    Jun 16, 2017 8:19 PM - Voda: no matter
    Jun 16, 2017 8:19 PM - Voda: here you go instead...
    Jun 16, 2017 8:19 PM - Voda: for all the strangers et. al. out there LOL
    Jun 17, 2017 1:23 AM - edina: that video made a few rounds on the FB newsfeed a while back, V, and I never watched it.
    Jun 17, 2017 1:23 AM - edina: But since you posted it, I did.
    Jun 17, 2017 1:23 AM - edina: Yep, it's an odd one, innit?

    Jun 17, 2017 at 1:10 PM - Voda: what is FB?
    Jun 17, 2017 at 1:57 PM - edina: a lazy way of typing FaceBook.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:02 PM - Voda: what is FaceBook?
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:28 PM - edina: Voda? Do you honestly not know what Facebook is?
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:30 PM - edina: It's a social media platform, like YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Pintinerest, LinkedIn, and others. It has about 3 billion people on it. I thought you probably had an account on FB, too.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:36 PM - edina: Ha, I have to laugh at myself, I forgot Google+
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:36 PM - edina: but then, most people do :)
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:37 PM - edina: Forget Google+, that is.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:43 PM - edina: I had an odd dream where someone was trying to assassinate me last night. The assassin never took the shot because he couldn't get a good beeline. Thought it was an odd dream.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:43 PM - edina: Also, another attempt at brain zapping.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:44 PM - edina: Seems that, yet again, I've managed to piss someone off. (sigh)
    Jun 17, 2017 at 2:46 PM - edina: I can't understand why? I'm so easygoing. :D
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:02 PM - Voda: e... i still dont 'get' facebook... what does it do?
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:17 PM - edina: hey V, were you the poster, Aelian, who posted earlier in my thread?
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:18 PM - edina: Here's a wiki link to FB, people get out of it, what they bring to it.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:19 PM - edina: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebook
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:23 PM - edina: Off now, good day to everyone.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:24 PM - edina: [​IMG]
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:24 PM - edina: :D
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:57 PM - jjl: I have never heard the expression "beeline" used in relation to shooting. But I don't have a gun or shoot one so unlikely that I would be familiar with gun lingo. (But I thought it was called a sight or sightline)
    Jun 17, 2017 at 3:58 PM - jjl: or "Bead" getting a bead, useing the sight bead on the end of the cannon
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:04 PM - jjl: beelineing is a long tedious process that takes many hours of watching a bee fly from the hive and tryingto follow the line. But you have to stop at the last sighting and continue forward when you see another bee. It takes exceptional sight to do it, and information of where the best forage is.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:28 PM - Voda: e... you asking me this bit... "Today edina: hey V, were you the poster, Aelian, who posted earlier in my thread?"
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:28 PM - Voda: the answer is... nope
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:28 PM - Voda: good luck wif that lmao
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:30 PM - Voda: i know nuttin'
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:36 PM - Voda: unless i find it hilarious
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:50 PM - edina: Thanks for your honesty V.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 4:50 PM - edina: Yep, I found it hilarious, too.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:35 PM - Gatecrasher: Anyways, I thought it was Sting who said he was an alien.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:40 PM - Gatecrasher: Somebody told me that some experiments were done very recently using AI and FB chat module.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:40 PM - Gatecrasher: They found that the AI's did things like feign interest.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:41 PM - Gatecrasher: And then after a while started to talk I their own unique language.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:42 PM - Gatecrasher: They reversed proceeded the new language the Ai developed.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:42 PM - Gatecrasher: It was all maths.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:43 PM - Gatecrasher: Aye eh ooooo thought that might interest you, E.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:45 PM - Gatecrasher: It wasn't clear why they feigned interest except to gain some advantage or knowledge.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:46 PM - Gatecrasher: I also don't know how the AI's were modelled.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:46 PM - Gatecrasher: But the fact that they rose above the programme seems very deterministic. ...
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:47 PM - Gatecrasher: Conscious bots?
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:47 PM - Gatecrasher: Thought you might like that story.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:51 PM - edina: Yes, GC, you're right, I did find the story interesting. I had just read it myself earlier today.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:51 PM - edina: I almost posted it here, but talked myself out of it. :)
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:51 PM - edina: Thanks for thinking of me.
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:51 PM - edina: https://futurism.com/a-facebook-ai-unexpectedly-created-its-own-unique-language/
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:53 PM - edina: they started spontaneously developing a non-human language
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:53 PM - edina: machine learning...
    Jun 17, 2017 at 11:54 PM - edina: was the article I linked above the one you read, too?
