Re: Trump plans to use his Death Star in a democratic election
Doesn't really matter how it plays out - the rest of the world will continue to laugh at America. Well, I will.

Apologies if I've missed something obvious, but I just can't see what it is...
Umm... how can Microsoft buy TikTok if ByteDance does not want to sell? Will the almighty US just take it away from ByteDance and give it to MS?
Pompeo claims TikTok is feeding all user data to the Chinese Communist Party. So fucking what? Which US tech companies give the US government user data? MS? Cisco? Google? Facebook? IBM? AT&T? Verizon? Amazon? Apple? (might've missed a few hundred)
I'm not into social media type things too much (as in no FB, Insta, etc), but I'm going to download and install TikTok today, coz, I just feel like chucking a tanty!!
You didn't post anonymously.
You didn't use the helicopter icon.
You're a brave person!
You know, they'll find a way of getting to you for releasing that information?
Good luck, and don't forget to pack some cheddar cheese slices!
My fave news sites always have something on their front page every day from twi77er about something so seriously stupid that it makes my day (The Orange One, included).
Let The Orange One use twi77er, please, and all the other famous knobs, too... coz, like, news sites wouldn't exist without it and them.
I know that sucks... just... just laugh at it.
The Orange One is banning tiktok!! Hahaha!!! It's going to be interesting to see how this pans out. Force the Chinese to sell it to Microsoft? LOL!!!!!
I haven't seen an old friend for about 25 years. We recently started chatting on the phone. Then, just last night, he sent me, via SMS, his work address so we could meet up.
About 15 minutes after I got that SMS from my friend, I went to Google Maps on my desktop computer (Linux Mint), and started to enter the address. I punched in the street number, but before I could type any more, Google offered up suggestions - the first one was a postcode in another state, the second suggestion was the actual address my friend had sent me.
// WHAT THE FUCK? \\
I'm close to re launching an old website of mine.
The site will need advertising, but it will not be from the usual places. Instead, I'm spending considerable time finding advertisers that'll make a nice fit for the content presented.
I've always used that method. Worked in the past. No reason it shouldn't work now.
A friend and I got bashed by the police pretty badly one night. The friend lost a couple of toes.
I put in an official complaint to the NSW Police Ombudsman. Then I moved to Melbourne, Victoria.
A couple of police officers flew down to Melbourne to interview me on behalf of the Ombudsman.
The two police officers informed me that I was making up the whole story, there's no evidence, and I'm just straight up a liar.
And that was the end of that.
I once worked for a small Co. that sometimes barely had enough money to pay staff, but they paid a small fortune to add one word to their Co. name.
The name change process was done by a relative to one of the bosses.
I only learned of this after the other boss had a whinge session with me about his business partner.
(Too often, these two bosses would whinge to me about the other, so it comes as no surprise that after a falling out between the two, one bought the other out. I tried to stay loyal to the boss that gave me the job, but, he like, started kicking the cat, me being the cat - so one day I went in to resign, "you can't resign, you're fired." So I joined the other boss in his new venture) ;D
To be honest, I find this all very entertaining.
I don't have a twitter account, and I don't need to visit their site to know what's going on. Practically every news site the world over has something on their front page from there.
All very amusing.
(i'm not mentioning anything about medication in this post, not, no... damnit!)
About this time last year I checked the availability of a domain - it was available. A few weeks later when I had the spare cash, I went back to find the domain had been registered. It was a .com domain that I once "owned" for about 8 years.
Considering the content of the site I have in mind (similar to the one I had before) is country specific, I have decided to go with a country specific domain. A few weeks ago I went to register and purchase that domain name, and found that that registrar was having a coronavirus promotion - by using the promo code FUCKCOVID19, I got my country specific domain name for free :D
So. The CovidSafe app stores some data in the USA...
The US cops are hunting an Aussie who apparently stole a bar of chocolate from the NASA coffee shop.
For some reason, the US cops suspect this Aussie installed the CovidSafe app.
The US cops get a warrant to rifle through the CovidSafe app data stored by Amazon.
Then, as a gesture of good will, the US cops give all that data to AU cops, coz, reasons (and they have done that before (can't find a link right now)) - and, that's LEGAL!
No. I will not be installing that app.
In Australia, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (the ABC - where a lot of news is reported)(wholly Australian Government funded) offices were raided by the Australian Federal Police (AFP).
The AFP also raided a (commercial) newspaper journalist's home at around the same time.
The information gathered by the AFP from the ABC includes information about informants, secure sources, whistle-blowers! F*ck, man! We're screwed if we let this continue.
Crikey! Look at Assange. He's f*cked! Agree with him or not - he is NOT getting a fair hearing. FFS!
You. World! I'm coming after you!
OK you smart-ass journalists...
Politicians the world over are making life really hard for journalists. I think it's about time journalists turn the table.
How about journalists just put a complete blanket ban on reporting/interviewing politicians?
Just stop it completely.
Politicians rely on teevee and print media to get their message across - screw them!
Ban them! Ban politics from journalism altogether! Flick 'em! They deserve nothing!
