Jeff Bezos in Space!
Jeff Bezos is going to space July 20th - CNN

I’m torn. On one hand, being blown up in his own rocket probably won’t fix dragon hoard greed but it might be a start, on the other I kind of want to see this brutal test on the one blue marble hypothesis. That seeing the entirety of the world with no borders or labels changes ones perspective on the human race.

Can seeing the entirety of human existence below him make this robot a real boy, or will he think, “Muahaha! I am God and you are my subjects!”

Oh, man, I'd thought of the first possibility, but not the second.

I'd be happy with either, although I suspect he might have lost the potential for humanity quite a while ago.

Definitely thought of the first possibility, and not in neutral way.

There is zero chance of him becoming more human upon seeing the globe. More likely he'll be uncomfortably reminded that there are still places with other businesses he hasn't destroyed and workers he hasn't exploited.

It looks like they built or infiltrated ANOM, and then shut down the biggest encryption app, catching anyone who scrambled to ANOM without verifying it.

AP The FBI collaborator effectively created a “blind copy” channel so that every single message sent by ANOM users ended up on a server run by the agency, court documents say.

Since October 2019, the FBI has has cataloged more than 20 million messages from a total of 11,800 devices — with about 9,000 currently active, according to the documents, which cited Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Australia and Serbia as the most active countries.

They say the number of active ANOM users was only 3,000 until Sky, one of the platforms previously used by criminal gangs, was dismantled in March.

Moral: if one of your crime contacts gets you a totally secure untraceable phone, do not believe him.

Happy trails, fare thee well, and gtfo to the Keystone XL Pipeline Project. The project has been unofficially dead since the Biden administration rescinded a border-crossing permit issued by the old incontinent fat guy who used to live in the White House, but the company has now made it official.
