Agorism

I personally am sick of the government bullshit, the lies, the money passed between politicians and corporations. I’m sick of hearing about stories months after they occur and not being able to do anything about it. Government has grown out of control (particularly in the US, not as much so in Canada) and needs to be held accountable. Continue reading

Second Realm and Bitcoin Summary

I have been digging into The Second Realm movement in the past few weeks compiling my notes on the various things I have found. Here are my impressions.

“The Second Realm” is a term used to describe a permanent autonomous zone that certain groups of Crypto-Anarchists, Anarcho-Capitalists, Agorists, hackers, etc. are trying to create. A place where full economic freedom can be achieved with no interaction with “The First Realm” (our current economy, government, corporations, etc.). They claim the reason is to circumvent the governments control over their everyday lives, to live and trade anonymously and build a better world free from the control of “The Man.”

Paranoid Android

I love Radiohead and I stumbled across this video on FB today:

It’s a compilation of different artists performing Paranoid Android which is one of my favourite songs. It inspired me to finally look up the lyrics (funny how you can listen to a song hundreds of times and love it but not know all the words exactly). As I was reading the lyrics I was a bit confused and searched for some meaning (searched on Google haha).

Inception You Got A Brother Dreamin’ Dreamin’

MV5BMjAxMzY3NjcxNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTI5OTM0Mw@@._V1._SY317_Oh damn Inception was a great movie. I think I had like ten people recommend it to me. I finally took their advice and checked it out. Blew my mind.

I don’t watch many movies and this one really kept my attention. Normal Hollywood suspended belief doesn’t interest me but this kept me right in the story despite being so crazy mind bending. I would recommend it for anyone, and I guess others would as well since it is now #8 on the IMDB top 250 (at the time of posting). I don’t always agree with IMDB, but it means something to be up there with Shawshank Redemption.

The GSP vs. Anderson Silva Fight Doesn’t Interest Me

UFC-129-PosterSeeing Fedor lose and lose bad twice made me realize that seeing your heroes get creamed is no fun.You want your legends to live on forever. When you put a much naturally larger Anderson Silva up against George St-Pierre any fight will be lop sided. Silva is naturally 185 – 205 where GSP is a clear 170.

Stylistically it might be a bit more interesting, but it still wouldn’t be fair. Silva is one of the best strikers in the game, a jedi as he has been called and calls himself, while GSP is the most complete overall fighter. You remember when you used to play video games and you had to choose between the guy with the even stats and the one with the single major advantage? Well Silva doesn’t have many disadvantages, but being prone to want to stand over work on the ground is probably his biggest weakness. GSP is so intelligent he would obviously see ground and pound as his ticket and shoot in early (see Chael). This all sounds well and good and we run it through our heads, but do we want either of them to lose?
