Typical

There are alternatives to calling the cops.  For example you can file an notarized affidavit with any court that does the exact same thing as filing a police report.  Well it does everything except get the cops to investigate.  I might file a police report and an affidavit if a firearm or my truck was stolen.  These things usually have ways to prove they are mine built right into them.   But if someone stole my goddamn crescent wrench it’s almost impossible to prove which wrench is mine .  The cops wont put the effort into finding a $100 wrench that they would a registered firearm or automobile.  

No matter what is stolen the affidavit is probably more powerful in the event of a problem than the police report.  The police report doesn’t get filed into the public record until charges are laid with the court.  Police have been known to “forget” to do their job and it’s not a stretch to say the report never got transferred from the cop’s notebook to their recording system.  But when you file an affidavit it becomes public record.  For the courts or police to lose or improperly file an affidavit is a very serious problem as compared to losing or improperly handling a police report.  The police lose or refuse to file reports all the time.

The affidavit is more powerful for many reasons.  The most important is that the police rarely have the time to follow up on these things.  They need to fill their ticket and arrest quota.  Chasing down a wrench that can’t be effectively proven to be the one in question isn’t a priority.

Another benefit is that an affidavit keeps the injury private.  When you have a cop file a police report the injury is transferred to the government.  It’s now their injury and you willingly surrendered all of your rights to it.  For example did you ever notice that all charges laid in court have a monetary value attached to them?  The charges might be “petty theft of a wrench valued at $100” and the value of the charges could be set to $500. What’s that $500 about?  If the thief is convicted do you ever see the money?  Not if you called the cops. You surrendered that right when you brought the cops about it.  The crime went from a private injuryto a public one.  So not only will the thief be sentenced to way too much time in prison for theft but you don’t get your rightful compensation for the injury.  Now the judge gets your compensation added to his retirement fund or something.  Is it any wonder why Judges are so rich and that they get considerably richer as they move up the judicial ladder?

Another thing a police report does is subjects a petty thief to inhumane punishment.  Why should they go to prison over your stolen wrench when they could just pay you the $500 and return the wrench?  What benefit is there to society to subject another human being to those monsters in the “justice” system?  Don’t you really just want your wrench back and compensation for the time and money the theft caused you?  Is a wrench really worth all that inhumane treatment?  Geez man if I get my wrench back and compensation for having to go buy a new wrench in the mean time what more can I really ask for?  Is it worth risking the thief being brutalized in prison over?

The police, judges and lawyers all conspire to keep this from you.  Either they aren’t allowed to tell you or they hide it because they all aspire to move up in this scam.  So by safeguarding the scam for those higher on the ladder they are safeguarding their future as well.  If this information was more widely known the whole balance of power could shift.  These guys won’t give you the information that could render them obsolete.

thank you.

"Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know."

Under the Dog anime project directed by Masahiro Ando (Sword of the StrangerBlast of TempestCANAAN)

"Under the Dog takes place in 2025 in Neo Tokyo, five years after a devastating terrorist attack at the Tokyo Olympics. In the wake of the tragedy, the U.N. formed a covert ops unit dedicating to seeking out, then eliminating those responsible for the attack. Anthea Kallenberg, a girl of Swedish descent is a member of this elite group who has honed her combat abilities and has become a deadly assassin, but must come to terms as to who she really is."

Support it on Kickstarter!

You guys like Fire Emblem? I’m supporting to nab another art book by Yuusuke Kozaki, who does the character designs for Fire Emblem Awakening, No More Heroes, Speed Grapher, etc. And also cuz this show looks neat! Let’s support the creators we love!

DAILY REMINDER TO SUPPORT UNDER THE DOG ON KICKSTARTER COME ON DO IT

This looks awesome

Damn it makes me sad that this is struggling to make its quota. AAarrggh i want good anime in my life.. come on guys!  Pimp this thing hard!

edit: Also they made an update to the kickstarter and the character designer updated the main girls power-suit and i really dig it.  More slick and intimidating but also great looking with the addition of a hoodie and more black.

yaaaassss check out the other updates as well, like: All backers of the $20 tier and higher to have digital access to any future Under the Dog animations.

This means if we only meet the base goal of this KS campaign but go on to create our trilogy of films at some later time then you, the backers, will have access to download those for your original $20 or more contribution to this campaign!

I just want this to happen so bad ;;

There’s a distinctive sound your computer makes when an online friend is trying to get your attention. Sometimes its high pitched, other times its a low, warm tone, but regardless of your chat software, the onomatopoeia probably reads something like “bleep” which — by no coincidence, we’re sure — is what BitTorrent is calling its new messaging platform. Unlike Google Hangouts, AIM or Skype, however, Bleep is a decentralized communication platform, design specifically to protect user metadata and anonymity.

“Our big idea was to apply distributed technology to conversations,” BitTorrent’s Jaehee Lee write on the company’s blog. “That means no servers required.” Instead of sending your chat communications to a central company server to be redistributed to your peers, Bleep uses the same kind of peer-to-peer communication technology used for decentralized file sharing to carry and distribute encrypted messages and metadata. BitTorrent does not (and can’t) track who you’re talking to, what you’re saying or when your conversations happened.

The company says the chat program is being designed to enable a more open internet, and will empower users to communicate without fear of eavesdroppers. That said, it’s still quite early: the chat platform is only available in an invite-only pre-alpha for Windows 7 and 8 desktop users, and the installed client can only be used on one device and cannot be moved. Offline messaging isn’t supported either – though voice calls are available to online contacts and particularly guarded users can sign in with an unlisted, incognito mode. Ready for a discreet conversation? Check out the source link below to sign up for the pre-alpha.

The post BitTorrent’s Bleep messenger is a secure, decentralized chat platform appeared first on Daily Tech Whip.

Bleep is proprietary and closed-source. In addition, it’s owned by a company that habitually collaborates with the MPAA, a gigantic lobby group that is definitely not interested in your online freedom (recall SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, etc).

Tox is exactly what Bleep is claiming to be, except it’s actually free and open source. That means you can see the code before you run it, and millions of eyes can check to make sure it isn’t malevolent.

FOSS also provides clear practical benefits, examples being:

Tox runs on pretty much anything with a C compiler, not just Windows 7,

Tox can be themed to look just about however you want,

and Tox will never restrict features or show ads to try and get money out of you. If it did, someone would fork it and you could use the version without those antifeatures. It’s so easy that malicious developers know not to even bother trying.

Bleep is dangerous, because it lulls you into a false sense of security. The fact of the matter is that there’s no reason to trust any proprietary software, because especially in cases like this, there’s absolutely no good reason for it to be proprietary.

I don’t want to insinuate that Bleep are cooperating with the NSA, but I’m extremely skeptical of anyone who would use the Snowden leaks and privacy concerns as an opportunity to shill dangerous, closed-source software to honestly worried people who don’t know any better.

Coinbase uses such technology as well, reported by Kristov Atlas here. Even worse, he states that Coinbase may be tracking not just it’s users, but possibly merchants (that use Coinbase) customers.

AdBlock’s EasyPrivacy has been blocking this for five years. And more security-conscious/tinfoil people already have things like NoScript installed which will also block this by default.

OMG, women are SO oppressed gaise. Seriously, they’re so fucking oppressed just look at this.

Could someone please provide a source that sasy that men lose their voting rights and drivers license if they don’t sign up for SS? I whent to sss.gov and I couldn’t find anything.

"Federal law (50 U.S.C. App. 451 et seq.) requires virtually all male U.S. citizens, as well as immigrant men residing in the U.S., to register with the Selective Service System (SSS) when reaching age 18. In an effort to ensure compliance among young men, many states have enacted legislation which links SSS registration with the process of applying for a driver’s license or state identification card. As a result of such legislation, in May 2002, the state of Delaware, which enacted driver’s license legislation in 2000, became the first state to reach nearly 100 percent registration compliance since the Agency began compiling this data. In that same year, seven other states increased their compliance rates by 3 percent or more after enacting similar driver’s license legislation."
It’s on SSS.gov, but you had to do a little digging

Squishy Robots

"A new phase-changing material built from wax and foam developed by researchers at MIT is capable of switching between hard and soft states."

MIT researchers are trying to change the paradigm of your typical robot by mimicking organic substances. The idea is that the robot should be soft to conform to a particular environment, and interact with humans, though rigid enough to actually do a procedure. They can achieve this by applying heat at particular points to deform the object, then applying coolness to make the object rigid again. 

"Robots built from this material would be able to operate more like biological systems with applications ranging from difficult search and rescue operations, squeezing through rubble looking for survivors, to deformable surgical robots that could move through the body to reach a particular point without damaging any of the organs or vessels along the way."

The last gif is a example of bendable articulation. :D
