    Whether or not JD’s UFC regarding bat meat for profit is true, it illustrates the underlying inescapable fact that something like that WILL happen, especially when the economy is crunching. Or when people are going on fanatic shooting/bombing sprees. The world contains many not so bright people, some of them Ph.D. research types, and a significant number of evil shits, some of them not-so-bright.

    All you have to do is line them in a row (I’m seeing a slot machine) just right. Evil or stupid on the left, evil or stupid on the right. Evil or stupid in the middle. Any combination will do, although I think the classic pattern is evil in the middle with stupid on each side and evil bracketing the ends, although a reversal of polarity is probably almost as bad.

    But a straight string of stupid can happen, or a straight string of evil, and then you Hit the Jackpot!

    Speculations On What/How We Win

    However, I think Gibson is doing what most everyone does: tries to gradulaize something that has the potential to happen very very quickly. In the novel in which the Jackpot takes place, The Peripheral, the jackpot is supposed to happen slowly although quite devastatingly over all.

    I don’t see it. The amount of deficit in all criticval aspects is so off the chart, and so intricvately and wantonly inter-networked that it’s liable to be like dropping a bowling ball through an enormous mega-stadium sized balloon of spider web.

    “But spider webs are ridiculously strong!”

    Yes, but hot air is not, bowling balls are very small but very heavy, the speed of an object falling freely will increase by about 9.81 metres per second every second, and the very strength of those boomzillion spider strands will pull the entire thing down with minimal shredding for maximum collapse.

    As Dr. D points out, the essentially good idea that is socialism, fueled by the essentially good idea of capitalism, has been used as a cover to disguise the fact that virtually all our governments/leaders today are ratshit asshats smoking batshit who have no clue how to run this thing much less how to make it stop collapsing once it stops. Not.A.Clue. They are, after all, filled with Top People. Expert dipshits.

    Some of them are too cranially vapor-locked to realize that what they know they’re doing is, indeed, exactly what they’re doing and will inevitably produce the results that their intelligent but locked-down mindsets know must happen but insist must not so cannot even though they absolutely must continue doing the same or they will face genuine consequences which, as a result of just described mindsets, are to them just mythical creatures in some Harry Potter movie.

    Some of them just plain stupid and too numb by fear to be terrified by the fact that they’re terrified at how everything Captain Sparky says will/must happened doesn’t.

    Some of them are evil, yea, professing evil, unable to care what happens outside the domain of their glorious megalomaniacal psychopathic malignant narcissism (and a heap of other bad psych words too), so much so that even when a trusted dumb minion tells them not to do exactly what their evil genius boss had literally hard-wired into the minion’s mind not to do, they make the minion do what they told them not to do anyway:

    P.S.People fear Trump will go apeshit and go nuclear. Narcissitic solipsism, blah blah blah. As if he invented the arms race and the insane policies that have brought them to this brink. As if voices from both parties don’t collectively recoil and hiss when they hear the words Putin or Russia, as if both parties don’t STILL want to keep poking sticks at Vlad the Bad Bear despite him demonstrating that he has sticks long enough to poke them back more or less all at once.

    I daresay that I am much more terrified opf the likes of, say, Nicole Foss (who is a brilliant kind thoughtful caring and maybe even brave human being) who, despite all these glorious attributes, think that removing the the one boss so crazy he knows that winning nuclear war is something you talk about but don’t actually DO, just like you talk about fixing the countless problems pushing us to said nuclear brink but don’t actually DO anything even remotely effective, cuz that would cut in on your after hours sleaze time at a cost of 317 dollars a second (probably more; I probably calculated wrong) if you’re gonna keep on blowing a billion dollars a year for more stuff than all the sultans who ever lived could figure out how to enjoy but you, you just have to have more cuz you, you are hopelessly depraved in a way that even Stalin and Mao’s love children by Typhoid Mary and Maggie Thatcher in a secret lab where Hillary Clinton likes to watch, knows to stay far away from.

    I’m not being hyperbolic, am I?

    Sound the Alarm

    Like a million soldiers
    You know you can’t break me
    Can you feel the rumble
    Up under your feet?
    I can walk on water
    Get down on your knees
    I keep on marching, keep on marching
    I can make it rain, I can call on thunder
    Make a strong man weak
    Oh, I make you wonder
    I can feel the fire burnin’ down in me
    I keep on marching, I keep on marching

    [Chorus:]
    Sound the alarm
    Oh I’m coming
    Sound the alarm
    Oh I’m coming
    Sound the alarm
    Oh I’m coming
    Sound the alarm
    Oh I’m coming

    [Verse 2:]
    Like a dead man walking
    And I’mma keep on stomping
    Say you mine for gold?
    Oh, well I mine for souls
    I can feel the fire burnin’ down in me
    I keep on marching, I keep on marching

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge:]
    I’m like a million soldiers
    Can you feel the rumble?
    I can walk on water
    I can walk on water
    I can feel the fire burnin’ down in me
    I keep on marching
    I keep on marching
    I keep on marching

    I have often wondered. Say, you’re a smart fella’, so how’s a smart fella’ like you not realize that when you make guns, the guns get used, when you make bombs, the bombs get used, and when you make bioweapons?

    And you’re a smart fella’, you don’t need this job. Why not go work somewheres else?

    Nope! Tech’ing the science tech since 1818! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankenstein Same results every time. But you know Science™: when every experiment ever run fails, this time it’ll be different!

    Wish they were less smart and more wise. Or at least less hyperactive.
