That 49.3% were probably the 'obvious' bot accounts, found via parsing scripts and pattern recognition. That's not counting people's secondary and tertiary accounts, sock puppets, etc. That would take more human work and programming to sift through, comparing writing styles and IP addresses and the like. Our IT wizard at my night job suspects it's closer to 75-80% bot and duplicate accounts.

I hope you're wrong, but fear you may be right.

I just try to remember that 1776 was a chainsaw... But now we don't need a chainsaw, we need a scalpel and gamma-knife radiation treatment to cut out the pieces of cancer in our society.

We are now in this age of information, disinformation, and mass surveillance. I think perhaps we ARE the scalpel and the chemotherapy. Maybe, just maybe, we're EXACTLY what is needed for this time, place, and circumstance.

I'd wager there are more fake Twitter accounts than there are fake numbers of <?> who were supposedly <?> in the <?> during the height of <?>.

It's a <fill-in-the-blank> game!

See how they run like pigs from a gun? See how they fly? I'm crying. Liberal tears. The reeee of the left sounds like pigs squealing.

I misread that as "waxing dicks" and I was like wow, you can get a certificate for anything nowadays!

A normal size blade about the sharpness of a sledge hammer and the weight of a school bus should do nicely.

I'm curious... What was the tipping point for you?

Just FYI it's a short road from 'they don't deserve prison' to 'they don't deserve trials'. And then it's extrajudicial killings, star chambers, recruiting, planning, training, analysis, surveillance, reconnaissance, equipment, and it's nothing but work work work all the time... And before you know it you're handling assets for an organization that started out as an 'idea' and has morphed into a private paramilitary operation!

So uh... Recommend DON'T quit your day job!

Ours are acting uncharacteristically weird today. Spouse confirms. Shaking, whining, pacing from room to room (dogs) and being agitated, omnipresent and not their typical lazy selves (cats). The lizard seems fine.

It's all photons (from the lowly radio wave to the high intensity gamma ray), and they are all shining to us through (the darkness of) empty space. Which is only empty if we ignore fields, and only 'dark' we consider visible light. Each photon on that EM spectrum provides 'light' in the darkness - its just we can't see most of it without special equipment. Space is just the scaffolding. The lights are always on.

Were they 'always' on?

The Bible and the big bang agree on this point. Let there be light, indeed. God divided the light (potential) from the darkness (vacuum energy).

It's the ultimate free lunch!

Some work within the darkness to provide a place for the light to shine. The void cannot create, but it is integral to existence.

Can't have one without the other.

That's fair. I only ask because I know a couple of individuals who are any 90° into doing a complete 180 from where they were 7 years ago. Some people wake up really slowly. I guess you could say they aren't "morning persons". I guess that makes us "early birds". Early frogs?

"...then Rover swayed, whined pathetically, and sat at John's feet. John realized he shouldn't have dosed Rover with LSD, but John always enjoyed his ego-death trips, and as a dues-paying member of PETA he hoped to share the experience with man's best friend..."

How would you categorize liars/followers who have a change of heart? Rare, but can and does happen.

I'd put them in subcategory 2a: those who will awaken to their own lies and try to make amends.

Definitely going to decompress and check out this weekend. Have to come back strong and ready for what lies ahead for all of us. Don't know what it is but it's supposed to be 'biblical' ...

...and you can feel it in your bones. This change. Scary times, but exciting also.
