xor Has Stallman started referring to “open source” as “fake GNUs”? How long can we keep that from him

@protectedstatic @War_Kittens @NuclearAnthro @munin Now what was the Phil Collins song with the video of the Spitting Image puppets?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to protectedstatic

@twiddlekins @NuclearAnthro @munin As we know but Martin doesn’t, lead singer Peter Garrett later became an Australian member of parliament.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to twiddlekins

@twiddlekins @NuclearAnthro @munin Hah! That’s another one! But yeah, Midnight Oil’s “US Forces” is the classic.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to twiddlekins

@War_Kittens @clpolk @NuclearAnthro @munin I suppose, as an Australian, I should mention Midnight Oil, who clearly influenced Mr Assange.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to War_Kittens

@War_Kittens @NuclearAnthro @munin Maybe. I detect a gap in Martin’s knowledge. He’s early Cold War. We’re late Cold War.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to War_Kittens

@NuclearAnthro @northkoreafront Sure. And yet, well, you know the argument that it kept us alive. Now, though… Well, I know you know.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @munin Do you Googling on Bing for “Clause 28”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@northkoreafront @NuclearAnthro Hah! Man, we are all on the same page here. But for some of us, it’s not just theory to studied.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to northkoreafront

@NuclearAnthro @munin Oh man! Early 1980s? Popular culture SERIOUSLY reflected the fact that we were closest to nuclear warfare since Cuba.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @munin I am astounded that I have to introduce you to one of most important gay activist bands of the early 1980s.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @munin Also, as a fellow faggot, you must also know this important hit song. youtu.be/aLGbXHc-Ce0

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @munin Mind you, without Able Archer etc, we probably wouldn’t have had Frankie Goes to Hollywood, so there you go.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@munin @NuclearAnthro Yeah, and technically he should have been court marshalled. But he’s so relaxed about it now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to munin

@NuclearAnthro Also, though, God bless Stanislav Petrov. I mean, seriously.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro So, as a 1yo you were following Able Archer, even though most of us only found out later? Respect!

@NuclearAnthro Actually, it just occurred to me. This is the closest we’ve been to nuclear warfare in your lifetime. Welcome, Son.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Sure sure, but then we’d get to eat the yummy yummy rations!

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Man, you keep saying stuff about nuclear weapons like they’re a bad thing.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@munin @snare @daviottenheimer Cool. If the Nike battery is rained out then I might be able to convince him to go to the USS Pampanito.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to munin

Man, leave me alone with a few nuclear-tipped missiles and like you can do anything with me. Anything. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@snare @munin @daviottenheimer This is good hear. I mean, all the geeksigns were there, but you can never be 100% sure. ;)

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to snare

@munin @snare Mind you, I have no idea whether @daviottenheimer is an axe murderer or not, so I’m taking my chances.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to munin

@munin @snare Oh not at all! I’m looking forward to it. In theory, we’re going to the old Nike missile battery over wherever the fuck it is.

@reubenacciano @SnarkyPlatypus Indeed. And I’m sure the Brits wrote a dystopian novel about this exact thing. And here we are.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to reubenacciano

@munin All good. But yeah, I’m really feeling the uncertainty here in the PDRSF.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to munin

@smidgey That’s actually easy, because there’s a standard international process for that.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to smidgey

@munin Thanks, but I suspect it’s a case of better out than in. I hope. This is all very strange.

@SnarkyPlatypus @gattaca I’m handing out greenbacks to a few people, but it’s a different kind of desperation this year.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @gattaca And it’s raining today and tomorrow. I’ll head down to talk to them for @crikey_news, but God I feel like a cunt.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @gattaca And OK, homelessness in SFO, we know that. But not Hispanic women with their 2yo and 3yo kids on 5th Street.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @gattaca We are so fucked. By which I mean the US is so fucked. People are genuinely afraid here. You can feel it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jenny_sinclair It’s exactly like that is SFO right now. Everyone on the left-hand coast is disavowing Washington.

@gattaca This is what I mean, @SnarkyPlatypus. Dave and I know this town. This is scary.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to gattaca

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Seriously, it’s all gone “I know where we are and I know people might here us but I don’t care.” Like, WTF?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Well, yes, but this is the first time in my life that they’ve been so open about it, and that scares me.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, I haven’t mentioned what it’s like to talk to the spooks atm, but yeah. Everyone is kinda freaked out.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @gattaca Maybe it takes Australians and Canadians to notice what’s happening in The America.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@SnarkyPlatypus Also, as @gattaca like will attest, this is the worst we’ve ever seen of homeless and crazies living in the streets.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t think they got the concept of what a strike is.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Indeed. I had a brief from @crikey_news to cover the “general strike” here, but people were asking how to ask their boss…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Seriously, we might look at it from AU and think WTF? But here in the US they’re thinking the same and, well, it’s here.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, yes, and everyone here I’ve spoken to knows that. But the next question is “What do we do?”, and they don’t know.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Sure, but like it’s San Francisco, so there’s an element of “if you can be bothered”. It’s really weird here atm.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Pretty much. As you know, I know this town, but everyone here is kinda freaked right now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And it’s OK, kids, it’s not like we take it personally. But yeah, it’s really weird right now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Can I just say, everyone here in the People’s Democratic Republic of San Francisco keeps apologising for what’s happening in The America.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus No I’ve been here since last Sunday., but it’s hilarious all round.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Anyway, I am in The America, sorry. The people who are meeting me tomorrow know who I am, and I’m moderately sure we won’t be arrested.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Obviously I have not been drinking and God bless America.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

But I’m gone. If you want to make a thing of it, then email my lawyers and we’ll have the best kind of fun.
