Indeed, @SnarkyPlatypus, China’s economy is only “statistically” bigger, with numbers and shit.

SnarkyPlatypus @stilgherrian Anyway, I think the TL;DR version is “America’s economy is better than China’s because of *feelings*”

If anyone would like me to do 750 words of disjointed shit for their global masthead every Sunday, I drink and I’m available.

Apparently China should stop cyber terrorism [whatever that is] because it damages consumer brands.

Also: “The biggest threat to the creativity of American retail may be that we may have run out of countercultures to co-opt.”

The last paragraph is particularly special.

This David Brooks op-ed is hilarious. nytimes.com/2013/05/31/opi… Apparently the largest economy isn’t “consequential” without brands.

What sort of arsehat confuses “the economy” with “brands”? Oh.

The “AusVeg National Awards for Excellence”, says the press release. There’s actually a thing called “AusVeg”?

@Hung_Mung @0x1C @snare @SnarkyPlatypus There are limits to what they let me do in this front bar, even as a regular.

That awkward moment when you hand the bar staff the wrong pub loyalty card and they know you’ve been… disloyal.

Mobile: Wait outside; taxi to Wentworth Falls; a little shopping, for my pleasure; lunch at The Grand View Hotel.

I was looking for a suitable drawing to use as my new avatar. Can I leave it at that? @0x1C @snare @SnarkyPlatypus

@eightiestragic @paulwallbank @franksting Yes, but they were still actual shops with goods for sale, if a quick cash-in, not just photos.

@Arash_Mohebbi @SpaceKidette It’s also their goddam job to understand the world around them, and that means putting in some effort to learn.

@SpaceKidette True enough. And to return to that point, I’d filed “Truss” under “ignorant fool” years ago. He’s not interested in learning.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SpaceKidette

@SpaceKidette I get that, but to me it just perpetuates tribalism rather than looking at policies’ strengths and weaknesses. I despair.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SpaceKidette

RT @gusworldau: We could reclaim “air gap” to define that disconnection between political perception and security reality [Good idea!]

via Janetter for Mac

@SpaceKidette No, I don’t watch pointless “political” TV. But reducing debate to hashtags like is equally moronic IMO.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SpaceKidette

Sudden scary thought: All most politicians know about “hacking” is what they read in mainstream news outlets. Blind leading the blind.

@franksting @seancarmody That article is somewhat confusing, deliberately, but I’ve learned quite a bit more in the years since.

I will acknowledge that I have seen the conversation between @snare @0x1C @jduck and attempt to move on. Or become a cyberbrony.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis fâché avec la pluie, et confondu par cette conversation. Et vous?

Well reading that conversation was a tactical error.
