Comment Too much money (Score 1) 130

They're using microdoses of LSD to act as a stimulative similar to caffeine.

Because coffee is too pedestrian for these overpaid douchebags who are too special to use a coffee maker. And if they did use a coffee maker, it would have to be a $5,000 espresso machine because the $15 Mr Coffee is beneath them.

And this story doesn't even scratch the surface of their self-deluded and self-absorbed transhumanist fantasies.

Snowed himself has called that idea a "suicide switch". It would be idiotic. It means that anyone who wants those documents merely has to kill him, and boom, instant access to the whole deal.

Which also gives the US incentive to make sure that nobody hurts a hair on his head.

Either way, I don't think Snowden's even been in control of those archives for years. There's a reason he turned them over to journalists and kept them somewhere that's even out of his own reach.

By the way, where are the leaks? Cryptome has been keeping track, and on any scale, he hasn't "leaked" more than 1% of what snowden gave him.

And that's probably why Glenn Greenwald hasn't suffered a "fatal accident". Because he, along with Snowden, Poitras and others, have probably created a "dead man's switch" that releases everything if any of them die in suspicious circumstances.

That's what I'd do, anyway.

California. As well as not banning direct sales by auto manufacturers, it provides more protections for employees (banning non-compete contract terms), limits on how short yellow lights can be at signals, and the state government is running a surplus.

That's what good, conservative governance will do for you.

Oh wait.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
