Comment Defeat U.S. imperialism!!!! (Score -1, Offtopic) 48

Hillary Clinton and her Democratic party are the preferred administrators of Wall Street's bloody rule over the world. That is the source of all the Russia-bashing demagogy against the all-purpose racist clown Trump. But all bourgeois parties will shed oceans of blood to save the investments of their class. Green, Libertarian, Demopcratic, Republican: vote for them and you will get their system of endless war and horiffic racism, and grinding exploitation of the workers.

The only way to prevent a nuclear holocaust set off by U.S. imperialism is for the workers to take power! For a soviet America!

I'll admit I'm fairly ignorant of how Freenet actually works so, thank you for the brief education. What, then, is stopping them from maintaining the data in a central location and pushing it to Freenet periodically? I would suppose that it doesn't matter quite as much if the data can be knocked off of Freenet if you can just puch it back into the caches. It's not like the web servers of a CloudFlare customer aren't already serving up the HTML for every single request already (they are; CloudFlare only caches supplemental content like images, stylesheets, and scripts), so periodically pushing data to Freenet would likely still offer a net bandwidth savings.

There still exist an almost limitless number of options for continued distribution, though, including .onion (which I already mentioned) and providers in countries which don't care about copyright (which I alluded to earlier).

The point is, they'll find a CDN if they want one, or switch delivery platforms if, for some reason, they can't.

Swine flu was not "real". The flu was no more deadly than any other. The initial statisics were all wrong. It was caught by pig farmers in Mexico. Take a sick day, lose your job. Lose your job, starve and die. So taking a sick day was death. So workers literally worked themselves to death, with the flu, then the complications like pneumonia. They'd drop dead at work, drown in their own mucus while standing up. The stats were pretty bad in Mexico, but when spread in the US, the death rate was no worse than the regular flu. I took a trip to LA, and managed to contract N1H1. A flu, but not the worst I'd had.

Comment Re:Who cares if they actually help (Score 1) 147 The chest straps like that one have never gotten in my way. That's not the brand I use. Though they don't get in the way, I've gotten some skin irritation under them, as they fit tight and don't breathe well, so I put them on for the time needed, then remove, you wouldn't want to put one on in the morning and take it off at night on any regular basis.

If you are wearing a gi, it will be completely unobtrusive.

Though, thinking about wearing a gi, there are some wrist sensors you can wear up by your shoulder, and under a gi, they'll be out of the way, though if you are topless (or in a sleeveless wrestling outfit), it could get in the way. With the chest sensor, you could do a number of contact sports and not have them too much in the way. They are so tight fitting, it would be hard for anyone to grab them (deliberately or inadvertently).

While I know your comment was meant to be sarcastic (and I hope you get a funny mod or two for it), I really do wonder what would happen if every white person (regardless of gender or orientation) in the world stopped working for a week. Every male (regardless of race or orientation) for an additional week, then every cisgender (regardless of race, physical gender, or orientation) for another week, and every heterosexual (regardless of the other factors, as well) for yet another week.

That is, for each of those labels (white, cisgender, hetero, male) that applies to you, you take a week off. I wonder how we'd be valued then.
