About Me

I'm a very dangerous fellow when I don't know what I'm doing.

Journal Archives

Things we buy generally cost less to make than what we pay for them.

That's how capitalism works.

Photoshop is not worth $699 dollars to me so I don't use it.

I'm pretty sure Adobe spends more on marketing than they do on software development and I've no reason to support that nonsense.

Then again, look at me. I drive a car made in 1984 and generally acquire my computers by diverting them from the dumpsters.

Human technical progress would have a vastly different nature if most people were like me...

In my futuristic utopia you can grow anything you like in your garden. Clothing, hamburgers, bicycles, medicines, cell phones, supercomputers... who knows, maybe even space ships. All you have to do is ask around, someone will have the seeds.

Our weirdest religion is Monetization. Nothing beats it. Not snake handling, not wine into blood...

... Nothing.

Trusting God or the Emperor or the Party to turn debt, numbers, bits of paper, metal, stones, etc. into some magical substance called money? That is freaking bizarre, a cruel religion and a leap of faith beyond all reason.

Talk about making weird shit up... Banks are the weirdest churches and temples mankind has ever built.
