    I just used online tools. Kind of a pain tho, but its converted to text. There are some grammatical inconsistencies so may want to mention that OCR was used which is not always perfect.

    Perhaps try digging around in a Printer / Scanner Driver... The Drivers used by a lot of the Document Scanners actually should have some sort of OCR built in as an added "feature". Best part is that they are usually free, or at least "trial" versions which at least temporarily can suit your needs.

    Honestly, first, I would talk to them about it. Next, I'd try to come up with positive solutions. Help build a shelter, give a blanket, heater, whatever works that brings people together instead of pushing people apart. Anything beyond that only validates the reason for govt intrusion into all of our lives. Im really tempted to say "throw them to the wolves", but that would be much more reserved for those that actively torture their animals for amusement as opposed to neglect.

We must demand the other type of Nuclear Reactor must be used because its way more dangerous! We have to make the people believe the dangerous things we give them are perfectly safe despite a plethora of evidence to the contrary! Now lets denounce the Chinese findings by claiming their science is flawed due to top ramen causing hallucinations in laboratory animals, but only in the State of Kalifornia!

    Only thing to do now is to wait and see who benefits the most. Keep in mind the very term "Net Neutrality" is a Label that almost as always has nothing to do with what the Label implies. The Patriot Act had NOTHING to do with Patriotism. Affordable Care Act (health) has nothing to do with making healthcare either affordable or healthy. CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) has nothing to do with Protection. This is applied to damn near EVERY phrase both the MSM and govt throw at us, because it heavily impacts the Perception that the majority of people have of whatever is thrown their way.

    Exactly. All Im referring to is that there is a difference between Natural Scarcity and Artificial Scarcity. Cant print up more gold. But one can cause a shortage in gasoline by limiting the production of oil refineries, which creates an artificial scarcity which drives up prices.

    That is a big part of the problem of our education system itself. The way that children are taught causes a lot of them to become very disinterested in both furthering their education and interest in the world itself. That in and of itself is a whole can of worms, that if we are ever to actually solve any problems, definitely needs to be addressed. The problem isnt with kids, but what causes kids to have the reaction in the first place. Thing is that a lot of people, not just kids, including me, now see college as a huge financial risk, and they are not wrong. In general, people look at the world and what they see is that college prepares them for jobs that do not pay well enough to afford paying back student loans. They see college as something they have to pay for in order to meet arbitrary standards set by employers, that often even a degree can prepare them for. They assume the financial risk in order to become something that does not resonate with who and what they want to be. Would you take out $80k in student loans to become a Debt Collector? How about a Warehouse Worker? Maybe a Walmart employee? Why in the world would anyone look at that as a path to success when a Degree is supposed to qualify a person for a satisfying and stable job? And Im not just talking about getting a degree just for the sake of getting a degree; Im talking about legit skills such as engineer or programmer or scientist, not something like Underwater Basket Weaving. What we have really done is replaced True Learning with Workforce Training. And that is the key difference between Education and Learning. "If education is beaten by workforce training, civilization dies." - CS Lewis

    Microsoft is getting pissy about using any sort of secondary operating system or dual boot systems, so they've been actively removing those choices. Personally, I'd start with a clean hard drive, no windows on it, or even plugged in, period. Go into BIOS (Hit the DEL key as the computer boots) change the Boot Order or Boot Priority then boot it off of your DVD. Its just like installing windows, but for other OS's as well, you'll be given some options to select a hard drive to install Ubuntu to, and will most likely have to format the drive first. From there, it should just be a matter of following prompts to get the OS onto the hard drive and wait for files to copy. After that, the real fun begins as a lot of new hardware is Windows Specific so there may not even be compatible drivers for the hardware in your box. Dont bother trying to do Dual Boot until you know what youre doing. Not sure on UEFI for non windows based systems, Im not that familiar with newer hardware, so anyone care to help out in regards to that...

    Well, the Sugar Industry will come right out and say that High Cholesterol is caused by too much red meat but definitely NOT sugar! NEVER sugar! Sugar doesnt cause inflammation, break down the blood-brain barrier making the brain cells susceptible to insulin spikes, thats caused by not paying out the ass for a good edjumacashun! Sugar doesnt cause diabetes! Nope nope! Wasnt us! Now look at this pretty chart exploiting Simpsons Paradox so everyone genuinely starts to believe that sugar doesnt cause diabetes, or ANY other health problems evarr!

    You can love your govt. Youre also "allowed" to even hate it. You could even organize protests and meaningful resistance to govt policies. All that matters is you pay your fucking taxes.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ovW86L8K4U&list=PLpq-fVpS7yY-loBGnaUwsglihq5TH4844 (I havent seen this episode yet, but figured might as well start at the beginning) We've probably all seen video compilations of idiots doing stupid things on the road and see them constantly on the roads ourselves. One of the issues with those types of videos is the same thing we say every time we see an idiot driver: "What were they thinking"? So thats something I actually do like about this show so far in that we actually get to see the drivers in action instead of only being able to look at the results of their stupidity. Show is Canadian so Ive never heard of it before. If you havent seen it, enjoy, if youre interested... But, be forewarned, these people are true idiots. Next video is MUCH more interesting since it shows how much of a true idiot people can be. Its the first one of the series I watched...

    Many of the troubles you mention are valid, and exactly what will happen if either Govt or Federal Reserve Bank (or any Central Bank) becomes involved in cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is not necessarily the only cryptocurrency out there. There are several. Another one is Ethereum. If Central Banks ever claim authority over cryptocurrency, you can guarantee that we are all fucked as a result. Other thing is that many people that dont fully understand Bitcoin also dont know of the 21 million limit, so the explanation is more for everyone else.

    I think it is already here... Amazon's 75,000 New Robots Are Your Answer To No Wage Inflation http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-11/amazons-75000-new-robots-are-your-answer-no-wage-inflation Amazons main shipping facility is here in my home town, so I meet people that have worked for Amazon all the time. I also see a saturation of job postings for warehouse workers as well. Thing is, most of the warehouse jobs for Amazon are temp jobs that are handled by a Temp Agency so Amazons reputation is protected. These are Temporary Jobs, and not even directly employed by Amazon. Sadly, what this all confirms is that Amazon views the majority of its workforce to be disposable. When robots and drones replace the disposable human workforce, the true state of the economy will become visible. We dont produce anything here any more. A good portion of what we do produce is already handled by machines, and that has the potential to also be fully automated. The robots and drones will be manufactured overseas. Maintenance will be handled by very few people. Then we will truly see how far we have fallen.

    Exactly. Gold is physical so its scarcity is not artificial. Bitcoin is artificial, where the inventor claims that only 21 million bitcoins will ever be generated. That 21 million limit is an artificial limit. It may be mathematical in nature, but it is still artificial. When the time comes, people will flock to other digital currencies due to misconceptions. So yes, I actually do fully agree with you, but Gold is NATURALLY scarce.

Is a Future Revolution Possible Without Privacy?

by DamianTV on 03-11-2013 at 02:16 PM
(This was a post that I slightly edited to make sense by itself. The original post is here.)

Very few people are looking toward the Future when Privacy is Impossible. But if Privacy is completely gone, will a Revolution even be possible?

Google GlASS might be able to record what you do right now as a video, but this will only be the first in a long series of progressively privacy invading advancements. One of them inevitably will be Google Contact Lenses. However,
