Is the hotel related to the restaurant chain? Around here they fill the same niche as Perkins.

Stumbled upon this earlier this year, but I was reminded of it again, today:
When I recall that night so many years ago, among the foul mists and brackish fens of the Great Southern Swamp, a great wave of shame and guilt rises within me, beneath which lies a vaster and darker force: madness, pure and unending, threatening to swallow me whole.

That morning, I had set out with Cedric (a fellow medical student at Miskatonka State) with the intention of putting to rest a ludicrously backwoods Southern legend. We had set off in a massive horse-carriage, a true leviathan capable of holding twenty souls, which bore the chrome mark of its maker: Chrysler Manufactory, Detroit.

I'm encouraged by the many accounts I received from people who were interested in using this technology in positive ways, and I'm cautiously optimistic that we will be able to use technologies like this for the better, while minimizing their potential harm.
Yeah, probably not though.

Interesting discussion at https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/blog-po ... -say-that/

I do think, though, that
a) you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube, so a knee-jerk OMIGOD WE CAN'T TRUST AUDIO OR VIDEO BAN IT RIGHT NOW reaction is unhelpful at best
b) I can think of completely legitimate uses for "deepfake" audio and video (for example, an actor is making a movie and dies before filming is complete, but has signed a contract allowing his likeness to be used to complete the movie so they don't have to go all Plan 9 on it)
c) people have been able to forge almost every single kind of verification ever invented - signatures, seals, holograms - and it doesn't mean that they were suddenly completely worthless, it just means we have to take them as part of the totality of evidence.

I kind think we are heading toward digital signatures with floating privacy features - basically a way to replicate the logic of multi factor authentication based on time, place, device, maybe other biometric features. So standards get adopted for posted content to have some kind of time date and the party in question can be like nope wasn't there - maybe some kind of encryption scheme in real time of posting? Dunno.

This Amy Wax interview is something else. I’m glad those kids shelling out big bucks to go to Penn Law get the academic rigor if someone who wonders, “Why are Jews so Jewy?” I mean why get it for free at VDare, when you can pay $50k a year for those insights.

Yes that was something else.

Man what kind of Europeans do these yutzes think we were getting from 1860-1920? (this is also a fun time to bring up the mainstream appeal of catholic conspiracy theories during that period.)

Also, there are a bunch of “shithole” countries in Latin America and Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, that are wealthier than European countries like Greece or Portugal.

Good stuff. I've long felt that most of the world is kind of amateurish and just muddles along, held together with chewing gum and bits of string, and I've never seen much reason to doubt that intelligence services were much the same.

In almost every respect intelligence organizations that are perceived as highly effective are almost always an illusion they create. The Gestapo was actually pretty awful at its job but because they had this feared reputation anyone who got picked up by them often confessed everything because they thought the Gestapo already knew everything, even when they usually didn't.

I’m not sure what’s worse, Hitler’s last living relative is a paedophile or that he has an awful head tattoo. Also, clearly bringing disrepute to the family name.

I just appreciate the part where his adoptive family didn't change his last name. I guess they had the foresight to realize that a member of the Hitler family could easily grow up to be a pedophile with a head tattoo, and there's no need to tarnish the adoptive family's good name by association.
