  1. I know I'm "doing it wrong" by posting this, but I actually like the Uber Eats commercials with Mark Hamill and Patrick Stewart.
  2. It's not a big thing, but the widget this site is using to list the Horn's football schedule has the date wrong for the Baylor game. Pretty sure the Horns aren't playing simultaneous games on Halloween.
  3. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-banks/global-banks-ramp-up-preparations-for-u-s-election-night-chaos-sources-say-idUSKBN26L2X8
  4. Not related to government, just another self inflicted wound society embraces without any real cost analysis... https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-09-30/license-plate-scanners-for-police-are-becoming-cheaper-more-available?srnd=premium Concerns about government using mass surveillance to track movements will be deflected the same way phone and internet surveillance was - by outsourcing to private companies.
  5. That's not a search result. That's Google's autocomplete algorithm trying to read your mind (or influence it depending upon your perspective).
  6. Is the line on Anastasis' "what is this fucking market" moving, because Trump pretty much guaranteed that he is going to contest mail in ballot results and the election is going to be argued in courts for some time.
  7. I remember from my time attending state wide political conventions that there were any number of groups/businesses there promoting voter data mining services. It's incredible to ponder how much information these groups are amassing on people to sell to nascent campaigns. The Facebook advertising machine that helps advertisers target specific demographics thanks to their own surveillance of their users was well covered in that Netflix documentary The Social Disease. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.
  8. If Alsup's "overreach" was to determine that declaration headers are command (functional) structures and inherently uncopyrightable, I'm perfectly fine with his ruling. It's OK to call an apple an apple.
  9. Just saw this this morning. Searched and didn't see any discussion of it: https://reason.com/2020/09/08/magazine-confiscation-splits-third-and-ninth-circuits/ California ban on high cap magazines struck down. New Jersey ban upheld. The issue could end up before SCOTUS.
  10. Syntax and structure are the functional purpose of a declaration header. Organization is superfluous/immaterial. Yeah. As I said, he got it right. The replicated elements were the declaration headers.
  11. I ran across the story this morning. If you know more about it, please share. I did an internet search and haven't found much more about the story. This report from the NY Post https://nypost.com/2020/09/27/project-veritas-uncovers-ballot-harvesting-fraud-in-minnesota/ claims the original video by Liban Mohamed was posted July 1. If Liban Mohamed really is the brother of Minneapolis City Council member Jamal Osman, I doubt it was part of any Project Veritas/O'Keefe scheme.
