Comment: Orwell was a modern prophet. (Score 1) 161 161

We are becoming "1984"

But mix in the "CtOS" from the game Watchdogs

and we have what the U.S. is turning into.

I predict there will be a boiling point and the next civil war even if it's soon to 50 years away will be the citizens vs law enforcement.

militarizing police and militarizing corporations is grossly against the law of posse comitatus act.

Magnasanti 6 million residents, life span is only 50 years. A harsh existence:

"The ironic thing about it is the sims in Magnasanti tolerate it. They don't rebel, or cause revolutions and social chaos. No one considers challenging the system by physical means since a hyper-efficient police state keeps them in line. They have all been successfully dumbed down, sickened with poor health, enslaved and mind-controlled just enough to keep this system going for thousands of years. 50,000 years to be exact. They are all imprisoned in space and time."

Comment: The web did better before ads (Score 1) 618 618

In late 90s the web was better, people tried to keep good content. Web pages were edited manually. Care web into pages. Yes we had young and noons with overused animated gifs and horrible free sites like GeoCities, Angelfire, Tripod.

But the web exited just fine before ads. I had my own domain name back in late 90s when it was $70 a year.

It wasn't a RSS feed AdSense scam site that imported headlines and click bait titles from random RSS feeds.

Folks cared about their web page and took care of it, learning HTML, making awesome designs, the good sites stood out.

Now every damn site is WordPress, Drupal, Loomla, Tumble, Squarespace themed site with RSS feeds to simulate updated content, and AdSense, amazon ads, and more all over it.

Ads killed the web, no more creativity, no more enjoyment of caring for your site, no more original content.

For that my router has adblock add-on. It auto downloads block list every 24 hours. Blocks all ads at the router, no ads on desktop, mobiles, etc.

How to beat polygraph


"The Lie Behind the Lie Detector

The dirty little secret behind the polygraph is that the "test" depends on trickery, not science. The person being "tested" is not supposed to know that while the polygraph operator declares that all questions must be answered truthfully, warning that the slightest hint of deception will be detected, he secretly assumes that denials in response to certain questions -- called "control" questions -- will be less than truthful. An example of a commonly used control question is, "Did you ever lie to get out of trouble?" The polygrapher steers the examinee into a denial by warning, for example, that anyone who would do so is the same kind of person who would commit the kind of behavior that is under investigation and then lie about it. But secretly, it is assumed that everyone has lied to get out of trouble."

Polygraph secrets


A collection of documents about polygraphs (lie detectors), including how to beat the polygraph:

- The Lie Behind the Lie Detector by George W. Maschke and Gino J. Scalabrini. A must read;

- The Polygraph and Lie Detection. A report by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences highly critical of poygraphs;

- Department of Defense Polygraph Institute Interview & Interrogation Handbook;

- Department of Defense Polygraph Institute Law Enforcement Pre-Employment Test examiner's handbook;

- Administration guidelines for the "Test for Espionage and Sabotage" counterintelligence-scope polygraph screening format;

- U.S. Army Criminal Investigative Command "Forensic Psychophysiological Detection of Deception (PDD) Policy and Procedure Manual."
