Honestly Azaghal has some really high ideals that would be hard for anyone

I know about 10 years ago the Warner Theatre (live nation) already did this on all events(taking a cut of merch)

I don’t know much about this practice but it is hard for me to sympathize much with bands charging $30 for a shirt they pay $2 to make and losing a few bucks...however, it does suck for smaller acts...Dean Wareham said t shirt sales kept Luna afloat

But I don’t know how income generated by concerts is divided up...you have ticket sales, ticket charges, merch and bar/food...

Hey @TheSun. We got a request from one of your journalists asking if you could cover Bands F.C. for your ‘newspaper.’
It’s a no. In fact, it’s a ‘fuck off.’ Yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever, so please don’t ask again.
Thanks,

I have a couple El Jefe posters, but the only one currently up is the Frank Turner 9:30 Club poster (Rockets Are Red) from my wedding day with Josh standing arms crossed looking after a couple.  Even The Brand lets that one in the house.

Opossums have opposable thumbs on their hind feet which help them to grip branches and climb. They are the only non-primates with opposable thumbs. Opossums have the most teeth of any North American mammal.

hey...let's honor and not disrespect North America's only marsupial

we honor them, by eating them:

"Strachey's notes describe the opossum as a "beast in bigness of a pig and in taste alike,"
"The Virginia opossum was once widely hunted and consumed in the United States. Opossum farms have been operated in the United States in the past. Sweet potatoes were eaten together with the possum in America's southern area. South Carolina cuisine includes opossum, and President Jimmy Carter hunted opossums in addition to other small game. Raccoon, opossum, partridges, prairie hen, and frogs were among the fare Mark Twain recorded as part of American cuisine.

(weeeeeeki (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opossum))

and one of the few mammals that lived during the dinosaurs time and still around today


not quite:

The study, to be published in PLoS One on Dec. 16, shows that peradectids, a family of marsupials known from fossils mostly found in North America and Eurasia, are a sister group of all living opossums.
(...)
Opossum-like peradectids first appeared on the continent about 65 million years ago, at the time of the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event, which killed the dinosaurs.
(...)
The study also analyzes two 30-million-year-old skeletons of Herpetotheriidae, the sister group of all living marsupials.
Based on fossil evidence from the skull and two skeletons, the study's authors concluded the evolutionary split between the ancestor of opossums and the ancestor of all other living marsupials occurred at least 65 million years ago


(sciencedaily (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/12/091215202320.htm))

so it's the ancestor of the opposum, not the opposum itself, that emerged after the dinosaur's extinction.

KNOW YOUR HISTORY IF YOU'RE GOING TO CLAIM TO BE A FAN.

Pretty big news IMO

jack @jack
We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…
🧵
A political message earns reach when people decide to follow an account or retweet. Paying for reach removes that decision, forcing highly optimized and targeted political messages on people. We believe this decision should not be compromised by money.
.
While internet advertising is incredibly powerful and very effective for commercial advertisers, that power brings significant risks to politics, where it can be used to influence votes to affect the lives of millions.
·
Internet political ads present entirely new challenges to civic discourse: machine learning-based optimization of messaging and micro-targeting, unchecked misleading information, and deep fakes. All at increasing velocity, sophistication, and overwhelming scale.
·
These challenges will affect ALL internet communication, not just political ads. Best to focus our efforts on the root problems, without the additional burden and complexity taking money brings. Trying to fix both means fixing neither well, and harms our credibility.
·
For instance, it‘s not credible for us to say: “We’re working hard to stop people from gaming our systems to spread misleading info, buuut if someone pays us to target and force people to see their political ad…well...they can say whatever they want! 😉
·
We considered stopping only candidate ads, but issue ads present a way to circumvent. Additionally, it isn’t fair for everyone but candidates to buy ads for issues they want to push. So we're stopping these too.
·
We’re well aware we‘re a small part of a much larger political advertising ecosystem. Some might argue our actions today could favor incumbents. But we have witnessed many social movements reach massive scale without any political advertising. I trust this will only grow.
.
In addition, we need more forward-looking political ad regulation (very difficult to do). Ad transparency requirements are progress, but not enough. The internet provides entirely new capabilities, and regulators need to think past the present day to ensure a level playing field.
.
We’ll share the final policy by 11/15, including a few exceptions (ads in support of voter registration will still be allowed, for instance). We’ll start enforcing our new policy on 11/22 to provide current advertisers a notice period before this change goes into effect.
.
A final note. This isn’t about free expression. This is about paying for reach. And paying to increase the reach of political speech has significant ramifications that today’s democratic infrastructure may not be prepared to handle. It’s worth stepping back in order to address.

not my rep... I couldn't love Danica Roem with their awesome work in the VA state congress mixed in with talking about their favorite death metal acts

Danica Roem@pwcdanica
Today, I donated a bunch of stuff to the @GoodwillIntl  along Liberia Ave here in the HD13 part of Manassas. I dropped off clothes last week too. You can’t shop there right now but the donation center’s open. When it does reopen, please give the double-neck guitar a good home. \m/



@BillLenoir
Replying to  @pwcdanica
I’m hoping this is because you got yourself a new double neck guitar

Danica Roem @pwcdanica
Ha! Nah, it’s because I played it live 2005-2007 before I got my Dean Warbird in 2008, so it hasn’t gotten much love in a long time. But it was super fun to break out live when I did.



now that's my kind of rep!

It's totally easy as some tech wiz created essentially a DVR for the listening parties where you can play see the key tweets in real time as they occurred, just start listening to the album and  hit start on the replay page of your choice.   I usually see the tweeting as they occur, just don't always have the albums on.  Obviously to get the full effect one needs to follow the hashtag while it's live, but the replay feature is a good way to see the artist insights after the fact.

And it will be a great double header as they being doing Michael Kiwanuka’s latest as well...

 While the presidential election ballot counting goes on, Bloomberg notes that President Trump's special treatment on Twitter would end if he loses the election. As a world leader, Trump's tweets are not deleted and he cannot be banned for rule violations. Former leaders don't get the same exemptions, Twitter told the news service.

People keep attributing the GOP's fealty to Trump's absurd fraud claims to cowardice and sensitivity to Trump's bruised ego. That's wrong. It is a specific political calculation that Trumpism is the best path forward for the party in Georgia and beyond
Trumpism is a billionaire-funded, racial grievance and misinformation fueled plan to implement minority rule in America. And it is here to stay because it is the only way to keep the GOP's corporate donor class and the nativist voting base together

No. Getting people to tell you stuff and letting you publish it is real important


Bob Novak was the same...a loathsome person (not saying Maggie is) but he had all the scoops...

I do think that unlike Novak Maggie’s time is done... although if Trump is running for 2024 maybe not

jonathan pie is amazing.  if you haven't heard of him, do look him up.  he is the epitome of refined english sarcasm, satire and observational humour.

his schtick, in case you haven't guessed it, is that he's a serious news anchor that goes off on rants between stories, while the camera is supposedly off: "... and now over to Bob with sports." <insert profane yet eloquent rant> "Thank you Bob.  Our next story is about the rise of Labour in the Midlands thanks to their etc..."

The irony is rich. Dems are destroying many of their core constituencies: Hollywood, Broadway, pro sports, and Rock & Roll.

Bravo to Clapton and Van Morrison for having the courage to stand up to virtue-signaling Lefties & defend the thousands who work in the arts.

3/3 Why do Dems hate Rock & Roll?


although he is probably right, there are about 1001 republicans in the Arts (I think the majority actually work in the accounting dept)
I do think he is off on pro-sports tho...

Now if Mark Warner, Tim Kaine or my rep Don Byer did what Cruz did, I'd be up in arms
but that Cruz did this doesn't surprise me at all
I think it's great that he's getting shamed, but don't think it's going to change anyone who actually voted for him opinion



Also sound sounds like we are going to have to work on some campaign slogans for Hutch 2024 run for VA senator!

exactly.  his base more or less supports the insurrection - the concept behind it, if not the actual riot. 

but they're currently suffering from the weather so their leader heading to the beach while they tear down fences for firewood and line up for water from a public fountain is something that hits home.

The contortions the right go to cover for their corrupt leaders is astounding

Dinesh D'Souza@DineshDSouza
What could @tedcruz  do if he were here in Texas? I’m hard-pressed to say. If he’s in Cancun, that means he’s not using up valuable resources of energy, food and water that can now be used by someone else. This is probably the best thing he could do for the state right now


although that first sentence sounds like my argument, although I didn't back it up with something insane

I guess leaving the country is probably the best thing he could do for his state and the country right now

There is so much a Senator can do for his/her constituents in a crisis.
- communication on shelter & aid to constituents & with 1st responders
- helping state officials  communicate & coordinate with Federal
- reaching out to local & national business leaders who can provide goods & services

The list goes on and on.

But you have to not only know what to do, you have to care.

If Ted really wanted to take over Trump's base, he should have stayed in Mexico and blamed the media.

yes, but like martian dirt returning...we are not sure yet..but very exciting

The team behind Ingenuity are not yet sure whether it is even possible for a helicopter to hover above the Martian surface. Mars' atmosphere is less than one percent the density of Earth’s, so it may be too thin for the helicopter to successfully fly. If it succeeds, then space agencies can add aerial exploration of Mars to future missions.



in addition to Percy...there should have been a whole fleet of mini rovers that could travel hundreds of miles in different directions and beam back info to the obiter

at the very end of the video, you clearly see the word "curiosity" so this is older footage, not new content from the Perseverance.  also, given the very thin atmosphere, i don't think that sound can travel on mars... other than maybe wind on the microphone, if they even bothered including a microphone.

before launch the 'copter was tested in 1% air and it flew, so i'd certainly bet on it being able to fly on the red planet.  blades have to spin between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm.

Thanks to Vaders Little Princess (https://www.amazon.com/Vaders-Little-Princess-Jeffrey-Brown/dp/1452118698/) my daughter absolutely loves Darth Vader.  Stuffed doll, action figure, plastic plates all of it.

What a lemming..I do not miss him here


When people have nostalgia for blockbuster that doesn’t include a wide ranging critique of the evils of unfettered capitalism

They just remember as kids going to a blockbuster and being able to rent a movie and watching the movie at home.. it was something new to do and became a thing..it’s nostalgia for a time and place


The nostalgia has nothing to do with blockbusters anti-competitive policies or late fees debt collection

That first baseman is a complete moron. 

So long as Baez doesn't get to first, it doesn't matter when/if the runner crosses home plate.  AT ALL.  As soon as Baez started running backwards, turn around and touch first base.  End of inning, no run scored. 

If you decide to chase him down the line, fine.  Just walk up and tag him.   Sit on the fucking baseline if you want and wait for him to come to you an hour after the runner crosses home plate.  ANYTHING besides trying to get the runner at home.  End of inning, no run scored so long as Baez doesn't get safely to first base.
Title: Re: Twitter thread
Post by: sweetcell on May 28, 2021, 05:31:45 pm
also, the first baseman and catcher didn't need to squeeze the runner.  first baseman just needed to force him back to home plate, at which point he'd have nowhere else to go, and get tagged.  trying to pickle him was idiotic.

GGG = "good, giving, and game."

a term popularized by sex columnist Dan Savage.  means that you're willing to go out of your comfort zone for the sake of your partner's sexual satisfaction.  "i'm not really into that, but my partner is so i do it to make them happy".  ideally they'll do the same for you, and everyone is happy, so being GGG = happy wife and happy life.

Whenever I take political typology quizzes I always get libertarian. In some I get liberal (meaning D) libertarian which can seem odd if not contradictory.

People always distort libertarianism so it becomes a caricature.

People ought to be as free as possible to take drugs, fuck what they want (for money if they want),believe what they want and end their lives when they want.

Government ideally should be as small and nonintrusive as possible but provide a safety net until we no longer need one.

And just because exceptions sometimes have to be made doesn’t mean we throw out libertarianism. Few of life’s complicated questions have cut and dried answers

I would say my biggest gripe with libertarianism, is it's a utopia, a fantasy...it doesn't exist

So when arguing with a libertarian and they make an argument for X, but there is no basis in reality that it could happen or that a lot of people would suffer due to the change
it's a great idea, but it's not a fact that if gov't stepped away things would be soo much better
I think in general its a very selfish attitude and typically only supported by people don't want to pay taxes at all

Now with that said, I like a lot of libertarian ideals and think we should work towards that...
Title: Re: Twitter thread

Wow I don’t see that at all…


Most of the money government confiscates from people is wasted. Take the money flushed down the toilet in the war on terror. 

A person is selfish for wanting to keep his money instead of giving it to government to waste and kill?

When government takes people’s money it largely uses it - like any organization- on itself…creating jobs for itself…creating power for itself

The idea it does it to make your own life better is the fantasy.

I think a person who wants to cut a few hundred/thousand dollars off their tax bill, when they are taking home 250k a year is selfish, yes

also, lets not bring the military spending into this, I was more talking about social programs and infrastructure things the gov't does

Military spending is insane, with a lot of it going to line the pockets of our neighbors in the DMV

One thing I find out of whack is there is a streak of libertarians in the GOP, how they can sleep in the same bed as the religious right and now the QANON to me is showing their stripes.   They don't really care about anything other than lowering their tax bill, no matter what the cost

and with all its faults, I do think the US gov't makes lives better for a lot of people
There still is some personal responsibility that people need to take to fill that gap

Social programs aren’t wasteful? Infrastructure isn’t wasteful?

In the hands of government most everything is wasteful.

Please don’t be so naive.

And how can you just ignore military spending? I mean it’s convenient but how can you?

A person is selfish for wanting to keep the money they themselves earn and not give it to the government that ends up wasting 90% of it….


Ok…


$250,000 sadly isn’t even that much in the DC area…. And the way things are going it’s going to be worth less and less… or do you not do any grocery shopping?

I could see calling millionaires selfish but a household earning $250,000?

You know what’s selfish? Government just borrowing money when it doesn’t feel it’s getting enough from taxes and causing the value of your money…your earnings..to go down….making you and your family poorer…. The inflation tax

wasting 90% of it….
that's an interesting stat, I think it's inefficient to a large degree, but those dollars are usually creating jobs somewhere and those people are spending that money into the economy, creating more jobs  (I agree, the military is a different animal and different arguments need to be made there)

You save a wealthy person $25k on their tax bill, do you think they go out and create new jobs
not likely, they do it based on what the market wants not paying less in taxes

and yes, I do think a lot of wealthy people are selfish and 'mine mine mine...I earned it'  when the reality is they won the birth lottery or were lucky

also The national median family income for the United States for FY 2021 is $79,900,

so I'd say the VAST majority of Americans' think $250k is loaded
the DMV has 7 of the richest 10 counties in all of the country
Title: Re: Twitter thread
Post by: Starsky on November 29, 2021, 09:47:00 am
And why is the DMV loaded? As you yourself said because of wasteful government spending


But wasteful government spending is good?


Dude… how about government spend that money on the rest of the country?


So many defense industry “consultants” in Arlington… kind of grosses me out lately

But yeah government spending is great

cross posting to Musicological banter thread as it was T-Pains tweet that got Napster trending..

i was reminded of the time when Napster partnered with power popsters The Rosenbergs to distribute a second copy of their album that you could share with your friend, needless to say that ended really backfiring on them..  a real Behind The Music here in this long read

and i had forgotten about the whole run they had over the Farmcamp.com contract they were offered.

My take is Elon is not buying Twitter to bring TFG back...It's to defeat the spam bots!
why would he spend $43 Billion to do that, seems insane. I think he sees the value and will likely double his investment
If he brings back cheto, 1/3 to 1/2 will just leave the platform

How many times can your fav pundit say "PR shift" without acknowledging that Tesla does not have a PR team any longer.  Musk does not believe in “manipulating public opinion” which is apparently what he thinks a PR team does.

Let's talk about the $2-3b more Musk agreed to pay for a childish joke.  That's the real story.  At $44.20 twitter's like "nah" but for $54.20 (38% over value) they're like "sure man, no problem.  It would be a disservice to shareholders to NOT accept that offer."

Musk could care less...all about the Benjamin's

did you read this from this morning...these are his intentions and he can get more people interested by talking about trump, he will
https://www.axios.com/2022/05/09/elon-musks-goals-twitter-beyond-ambitious

Why it matters: The documents show that Musk imagines himself as able to produce financial growth unlike any the company has seen in its history.

By the numbers: Here are Musk's targets, per the Times:

Boost annual revenue to $26.4 billion by 2028, compared to $5 billion last year.
Get to nearly 1 billion users. Musk's goal is 600 million users by 2025, up from 217 million last year, and 931 million by 2028.
Cut the percentage of revenue from ads to 50%. (Ads were about 90% of revenue in 2020, the Times notes.)
Boost paid subscriptions, including growing Twitter Blue (currently $3 per month) to 69 million paying users by 2025 and 159 million by 2028.

this last one is absurd, he is not going to get 69mil users to pay $3 a month
never going to happen

There is always an attempt to ascribe a rationale to his actions because he must be a genius but often he does crazy things for which there is little possible rationale.

And if he needs soon to be 76 year old Trump tweeting for Twitter to meet his targets he is crazier than even I thought.

I would argue for a sufficient number of people they have as evidenced by houses selling.

People are buying multiple houses. Less people own the same number of houses and more people are getting shifted to the renter class. Which has negative externalities, but house prices going down isn't one.

his reasoning is sound: the #1 thing you're acquiring when buying something like twitter is the user-base.  the code can be rewritten, the infrastructure can be replaced - but users can't (RE: "if you're not paying for the product, you ARE the product" - and twitter is free, so...)

so if you were promised only 5% bad apples, and there is more than 5%, you're not getting what you were promised.  also, getting bots and fake accounts off of twitter is one of elon's stated goals.  he needs to know how big the problem is.

was his original reasoning that bots were more like 20%

It turns out his insistence on ending his bid with 420 (and upping his bid to $54.20) may not be as palatable to his investors - he doesn't care about Bots, he cares about lowering the price.  At $44.20 a share he had some interest and the market cap was comparable.  At $54.20, he's over paying - but he holds all the cards.  So make a move, threaten to leave and force twitter to lower their price.  If the deal falls through, both sides owe $1 billion, which would cost Twitter much more than Elon Musk.  He'll make up the loss when Tesla stock rebounds as he'll no longer be "distracted" by running twitter.

The bots are just an excuse to not be accused of being a bully billionaire, which he clearly is and is acting like one.

His initial offer for Twitter was $44.20.  It was rejected.
His follow-up offer was $54.20.  It was accepted.
That moment when he claimed he had the funding secure to take Tesla private, he said he planned to do so for $420 a share.  That joke cost him ~$20m.

Don't know or care if he smokes or not (in the SEC investigation about Tesla, he told the SEC he chose the number because he thought his girlfriend would find it funny), but he definitely doesn't care how much the childish use of the number will cost him.

The structure is sometimes referred to as an "American Stonehenge"
their apparent advocacy of population control, eugenics, and internationalism have made them an object of controversy and conspiracy theories.

My take is this lady is against any thing that is written on stone that is not from the bible

I'm all for taxing the rich

But not sure how you can tax people on unrealized gains

value is only real when it's sold.
only a few months ago I could have a had 1 Million usd in value in Bitcoin
but now, only a few weeks later it's only worth $14.3435 in USD

Now if I sold the bitcoin when it was worth 1 million I would (and should) have paid taxes
but should this law say...well you had 1 Million in value on x date, you owe us taxes on that

I assume that then there would also be a 'credit' for unrealized losses too
couldn't I just say I lost 1 million in bitcoin to offset profits somewhere else



So part of his argument is in using it for Collateral to get other loans...and yes it is a little voodoo economics to do that

but say the lender cashed in on that collateral would he owe the taxes on that sale at the time

I don't think so, honestly the tax deduction for interest on these loans is kinda bullshit (same for home loans...why would any loan interest  be deductible?)

Although it is income per se.  So I think you could tax it, but then you'd take that sum to reduce your capital appreciation when you sell
so wouldn't really net anything revenue wise and would make little incentive to take that kind of loan


I'd like to have some sort of wealth tax, I just don't think this is the way to do it

Title: Re: Twitter thread
Post by: vansmack on May 24, 2022, 04:07:21 pm
I don't think so,

Same principle as Musk's Twitter funding, and I agree.  He's not realizing the gain, he's borrowing against assets and taking a huge risk.  That's not a taxable event.

honestly the tax deduction for interest on these loans is kinda bullshit (same for home loans...why would any loan interest  be deductible?)

And I also agree here, even more so for a home equity loan.   While the mortgage deduction was an incentive to get people to fulfill the American Dream and buy a home, deductions for Home Equity loans make no sense and are an incentive to get folks into more financial trouble.  The elimination of the SALT deductions cost me a fortune in taxes, but I think it's fair.


Although it is income per se. 

An asset is not income.

She actually literally made that Oliver comment yesterday. I pointed out that she seems to like Trevor Noah, who basically does the same thing, and he's not obnoxious about it. of So maybe its like you say, the messenger who is egregious, not the message itself.

Why would HBO pay him over $15 million a year then?  you are just looking silly on this topic

For his highly successful TV show on HBO, John Oliver earns an annual salary of $15 Million dollars. In addition to this fixed salary, John Oliver is also eligible for an additional $2 Million in bonus, if his TV Show achieves certain Cable TV ratings



pulled from your article
Last Week Tonight has averaged 4.7 million across all platforms and plays for episodes of the new season.
so your 99.7% number is incorrect too

9 out 10 people who see a segment from John Oliver do not have HBO, bro. This shit lives on Twitter and Facebook.

dunno about FB and TW, but he gets a ton of eyeballs on youtube (including mine).  his weekly vids typically get between 3 and 7 million views, eclipsing his HBO viewership.  a quick scroll of his video listing page (https://www.youtube.com/user/LastWeekTonight/videos) reveals that he has several stories that got over 30 million views.  his most popular piece (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnpO_RTSNmQ), posted as trump was about to secure the GOP nom in early 2016, has over 40 million views.

"Tons?"

Let's not get carried away. 1 million viewers in a country of 330 million people.

99.7% of Americans don't watch his show.
Why would HBO pay him over $15 million a year then?  you are just looking silly on this topic

For his highly successful TV show on HBO, John Oliver earns an annual salary of $15 Million dollars. In addition to this fixed salary, John Oliver is also eligible for an additional $2 Million in bonus, if his TV Show achieves certain Cable TV ratings



pulled from your article
Last Week Tonight has averaged 4.7 million across all platforms and plays for episodes of the new season.
so your 99.7% number is incorrect too

Obviously the network is willing to pay for Julian or Sidehatch's eyeballs much more than you or hutch's
But I already knew that

I stand corrected. 98.6% of Americans don't watch John Oliver.



By comparison, 50 million viewers (21.4% of the 1983 US populations) watched the MASH finale.

I bet Alan Alda, who made 300K per episode, feels robbed.

If you’re trying to point out that John Oliver segments lack the rewatchability of ear worms like Baby Shark, then yes, you’ve stumbled upon a point of agreement.

I don’t even like John Oliver, but this just constantly claiming that things are not part of the zeitgeist because they fail to accumulate the same quantity in some outdated metric like “Nielsen ratings” as some other thing in the zeitgeist is real dumb. It’s like going “Taylor Swift isn’t a famous musician, she hasn’t even sold as many records as ABBA.” Your fact is very tenuously at best correlated to your assertion and does not account for era and or how industries evolve.

Real news is on PBS or the BBC in particular

i can agree, for the most part, about bill maher... but the information content in john oliver is much higher.  the guy has done deep-dives on utilities, compounding pharmacies and mobile homes - as sidehatch pointed out, these are topics that no one else is touching but are surprisingly important.  i genuinely learn something from his show (along with some laughs, and snark).

I wouldn’t call it entertainment so much as I would “preaching to the choir.” John Oliver might educate someone on an issue but if they weren’t predisposed to agree with him on that issue, they aren’t going to “buy it” or probably even be a person who exists within the ecosystem that his clips have ubiquity. He is, as is a lot of content, “preaching the the choir.” He fires up people who agree with him, he doesn’t convince. It wasn’t designed to convince. It was designed to be blurbed and get interactions from a certain demographic of people.
Title: Re: Twitter thread
Post by: Julian, Adroit TASTEMAKER on May 31, 2022, 09:32:06 pm
I think the way that a John Oliver clip goes from a pay station (that few people pay for) to being regurgitated and quote tweeted and reposted intensely by a small ecosystem of social media until normal people not on “progressive Twitter” get it in their social media and its cross-shared/reviewed on AV Club and CNN because it (intentionally or not) triggers an algorithm (or algorithms, plural) is not dissimilar to why we all see anti-Amber Heard videos everywhere or how QAnon spreads. And I don’t think people understand this mechanism at play enough and how some people weaponize it and other people who exist within these feedback loops do not understand that what they’re seeing is neither as ubiquitous as they perceive it nor organic.

Did consider passing this one along, but seem very UK specific.. anyways the guy responsible for the "Yakely Sax" is a bit of gadfly in London at the moment who had his speakers taken away for violating some law regarding using them on the streets.. details a bit murky on this one as they keep confiscating this equipment..

anyways the view from the other side...

I love this story so much, I can't wait to see how it plays out.  I'm guessing somewhere well north of the $1b but not close to the $44b he agreed to pay.  $20b-25b with no control of the company, and that $25b might include the value of relinquishing his current shareholdings in Twitter seems about right.
