Quote:
The sudden drop in bank robberies in the years following 1992 was almost as dramatic as their spectacular rise the decade before. Prior to the arrival of the Baby Bandits, security was not a major consideration in the overall business plan of the big banks. Spread out among them, losses from robberies were an almost meaningless line item on the annual expense sheet. Even the occasional big heist like the Tarzana robbery was not all that important to the bottom line. “They lose more than that on a single bad loan,” says Rehder.

But after particularly harrowing encounters with Baby Bandits, the banks were starting to see the entire staff of terrorized branch employees quit en masse. The cost of hiring and retraining all new employees to take their place was becoming enormous. And then there were the workman’s compensation claims from the former employees and lawsuits from customers due to post-traumatic stress or actual physical injury. By the end of 1992, losses related to robberies exceeded those from fraud for the first time ever.

Sanwa sent me a little paper cut-out sushi with my mouse pad. I guess I could have cut all the black lines off better on the shrimp, but I think I got the contour pretty good.

makes me wonder if they aren't just biding their time until we're vulnerable. you occasionally hear some story of a cat lady dying and being eaten by her starving cats. guess i can't blame them.

Saving the world with a smug expensive off the grid home project?
https://www.ids.ac.uk/opinions/will-sol ... al-africa/

Well... Those batteries are an issue. A large shared grid can move energy across large distances and deliver it without the need for storage. Maybe we should work together on fixing that?

Neat little home project. :) Neat toxic waste, too. :) You aren't saving the world, tho. Makes me smile to wipe that smug smile off your face.

Your attitude is charming, as always.

It's not just the batteries; the panels themselves use a variety of rare and toxic heavy metals in their construction. They're very beneficial for their ability to produce electricity without producing carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse we need to avoid producing to avoid warming the Earth's climate, but they definitely pose a waste recycling problem and is why I'd like to see more focus on wind energy. Wind energy however is subject to a lot of "not in my backyard" attitudes because people love electricity but hate the idea of seeing a wind turbine. Very odd.

Wind energy's main disadvantages, other than the metals used to build them, are the risk of flying wildlife hitting them (which apparently can be drastically reduced by painting one of the blades black) and the potential climate changes resulting from drawing energy out of the wind (if it has a real impact it's still going to be far less significant than anthropogenic climate warming from greenhouse gases is).

Interesting - totally offhand, I guess that promotes some predator recognition circuitry in prey animal brains? Like newly-hatched chickens running for cover if you move your hand over them like a passing hawk.

Reminds me of something I heard from noted wildlife expert James Heftfield Esq. on beekeepers never wearing black, it makes the bees rank up hard. Seems legit.

There's a difference between trying to write for a show to be a success by itself, and writing a resume to get a job making $tar Wars films for Disney.

This night I had the strangest dream. I'm dead serious here, this is something I dreamt.

Due to some kind of earlier controversy, every single representation of Mark of the Wolves had been removed from YouTube. To the point where a search for "MOTW" resulted in only a single, unrelated, result.

It had me shortly pondering whether I recalled the title entirely wrong, and it immediately demonstrated how much power a platform like YouTube has nowadays, despite being literally just a video sharing service.
Eventually the consequences were that everyone from the internet generation who gets all of their information from YouTube somehow came to the conclusion that MOTW was this completely unknown hidden gem that no one knew about.

Weird.

My favorite one from years back read: "Hello Friend, Are you tired of Disappointing that Special Someone? Now the girls will call you Largissimo!"

Our aesthetic categories are still lagging behind the spammer-scammers' work, IMO. I was asked recently why these emails made me so happy, and I struggled to answer---the best I could do, "They make me feel at home in the world." Thinking a bit more, they're delightful partly for what they withhold; they invite you to imagine the speaker, crouching behind his flimsy curtain, but also to strain to picture the true target audience, deep in Chumpsville (oh and, the wonderful world in which the scammer's claims are really true). Maybe all this provocative absence is like the concept of the "acousmatic" in modernist music. There's also an interesting tension between the hyper-banality of concerns, and the almost-poetic tiptoe dance around the spam filter's watchful eye---with the occasional dash of creativity for its own sake.

Junk mail has been around since the birth of the written language.
If you go back to the introduction of the printing press, junk mail notices and adverts were the main stay of the business.

There is something comforting about it's constancy.

I had a Nigerian professor once, and a couple of Nigerian classmates, and the subject of infamous "419" came up (the Nigerian penal code's designation for spam/scam, etc - if the Prince of Nigeria has been kidnapped by ninjas, again, and only your renowned compassion and judgement can save the day, that's 419!). I'll always treasure my buddy's translation of the word "MUGU" for me in the unofficial 419 anthem "I Go Chop Your Dollar."

"It mean a bum, a chump..." *pause for emphasis* "A real big loser." I asked him about those old biddies who blow their life savings trying in vain to foil the ninjas and he got kinda sad and said they weren't MUGU, "just victims." :sad: :mrgreen:

(prof had a marvelous way of pronouncing "decades" as "dickheads." Building this doctrine, it took dickheads! Many, many dickheads!)

How'd I hear about this but not this? 2018 was a more innocent time I guess.

"You're treating me like A FUCKIN BLACK PERSON!" - Jeffrey Epstein Image

"Look at 'em! They're gonna beat me up! DONT BEAT ME UP YOU MOTHERFUCKERS" Image

Epstein says he created the disturbance on purpose to "prove a point" about police use of excessive force.

My first honest-to-goodness accusation of cheating. Brings me a little tear of joy to my eye.

Image

The person deleted it soon after posting it because it's not on the actual video comments, but it still showed up on my notification feed. I like that they picked a game I had been streaming regularly on Twitch showing the attempts, and a game that's a PC game. I have no absolutely no idea how to TAS or save state something that's not in an emulator, sorry buddy. :lol:

The deletion is a fascinating twist, I wonder if he realised it wasn't emulation or if he just got scurred. :mrgreen:
