What's all this, then?

This is external storage space for a brain.

Brains aren't viewable to others, but this can be shared out of the love of archivism and openness. If you wish to view it, know that it was not created for you, and there are some things you ought to know..

a note on article dates

  • Ported articles are given a timestamp of 00:00.
  • The dates from the oldest articles are likely wrong, as they were ported from a still-older content management system.

    • Just as this "five things" process exists, I had an earlier series of notes tracking a still-earlier porting process. In due time, I'll go through that list and correct dates as best I can.

In Venezuela, when a democratically-elected socialist starts ruining the fourth largest oil industry in the world, using socialism, effort is made to initiate a regime change.

It begins as a pro-communist propaganda piece on how socialism didn't do nothin' wrong and real communism has never been tried. It gets good later on, as there are legitimate concerns actually being shown.

Feel free to look at this and compare it to current (2017-2018) reactions to United States president Donald Trump, because it will make your head explode.

You can thank events featured around this time, and the fucktardedness that followed, for plunging 90% of the population into poverty.. and I'm not exaggerating. This is the wealth-generation of socialism.

    After a disaster, a pleasure theme park re-opens with a new population of robots.

    Although this one has held up well, it does show its age. It's still spectacularly well-made, and especially well-written.
