I don't totally buy into the occult interpretation, I just like this guy's political commentary. I'm a Christian and I'm supposed to disregard the occult. Supposed to.

I've read about the stuff you cite about the link of the Trumps to Nicola Tesla.

Today scientists use terms like quantum entanglement to explain coincidences and what is alleged occultic events, and supposedly Chinese scientists have recently figured out how to achieve instantaneous long range communication with quantum entanglement.

Touch the TV series is on Netflix. I always want to smack that little bastard kid who keeps running off and predicting numerical coincidences.

The Styxenhammer guy's basic view on this seems to be that reality is nowhere as mundane as most people think regardless of causes. I agree with that wholeheartedly.

About the Baron Trump fantasy novel:

I like this guy's commentaries. He is an occult commentator as well as a political pundit. He makes this novel's recent re-discovery sound magical. Like uncovering the Shadilay recording.

Second link - did you actually read this book? Or is there a literary review of it available? Kinda tl;dr for me.

^ REALLY REALLY good summary, Benali.

Thanks for the explanation. TIL (today I learned), seriously.

I made an extremely good choice for a comparison with a style trend. It was unconscious at my end. Cool!

Well, having actually developed commercial Windows software in a past life...

The developer really doesn't have much to play with when it comes to UI elements on a mobile phone.

You can't have, for instance, modal popup windows like in Windows and you hardly have any screen real estate.

Your pointing device is basically like a bar of soap. No resolution and an uncertainty of intended position of one index finger width.

And lastly, limited screen space to display warning messages and to show functional options. A check list on a smartphone is an absolute pain in the ass. You have to scroll a long list to see everything and in the process you might click an item you didn't intend.

Smartphones are UI hell and the less you expect out of them the better.

Don't blame transgender types or liberals for the UI designs out there today.   This is all the young punk idiots coming into IT in the last 10 years who want to make their mark on the world and have absolutely no common sense.   Worse yet are the high level managers and CEO's of these organizations who go along with this UI crap at everybody's expense.   They should know better.

I know, I just make everything into a culture wars deal because I like to.  :P

The reality is just what you said, and even more: It's the design fashion of our time. Just as Bauhaus was an architectural and design standard in the 20s and 30s.

It's how you make things look right now in order to be commercially and socially accepted. And software is mostly about social acceptance, since functionality is a long solved problem.

Am I wrong to cast today's self absorbed, self indulgent user interface deficiencies in terms of character, strength and deviant sexuality?

I think not. Weaklings and pussies whisper and mumble. Real men or real women SAY WHAT THEY MEAN.

The user interface of today does not say what it means. It's passive aggressive. It whispers.

Just like any cuck. Or beta who joins antifa so they can look like a ninja.

Yes, preach it.

Think of confused, mentally deranged transgender types obsessed with political correctness in UIs. The average user interface today is like an NPR host speaking in hushed tones about diversity topics.  >:D :P

I guess I can relate to the story of your wife's relative. Could have been me in that tale. I bet he also looked into the price of the vaccine.

Years ago (I think this was a family story from the 1930s-50s) something like rabies vaccines wasn't many times the individual earning power related cost like it is today - less medical deep state and cost extortion. The person probably just wasn't aware of the danger and didn't get the vaccine.

I read about some guy who was staying in a motel room in Texas and a rabid bat had gotten in the room and barely nicked him, and he thought nothing of it. He came down with rabies later from that point of contact.

Ew. Rabies is one of my primal fears.

My wife had a relative who died of rabies at home years ago (country people living in deep rural Tennessee.) Essentially the human victim becomes like a "Walking Dead" re-enactor.

That girl is damned lucky.

He said lots of companies have been hit but they are being very secretive about the amount of the damage. Crazy stuff.

Might affect share prices?

I am somewhat disappointed about the lack of apocalyptic wastelands and mass starvation. I was ready for the Road Warrior :)

A few effective attacks on the nation's computers with something like Petya could do just that. Stay tuned.
