    Car Hacking

    Come now, we're all aware how the tech giants have been playing nice with the NSA. You think the car manufacturers are any different? The only "technoterrorists" who'll be hacking the cars of politicians will be those funded by the taxpayers. Incidentally there's a pretty decent case to be made that's exactly what happened to Michael Hastings.
  2. Use it when a cop follows you. I'm sure it'll hold up in court.
  3. "Heck we tried to save the older one's life after the younger one ran him over." Photos and video contradict that porkie as well. Incidentally, the official line has backed off from the "shot in the neck" lie. Remember, this line was used to justify the moves my the DOJ and courts because "he couldn't speak due to being shot in the neck". Now, I will admit that I have not been shot before so I am not speaking from experience. But I would imagine that climbing out of a boat with a bullet hole in my neck severe enough to make me unable to talk three days later I would be holding my neck, not calmly exiting the boat with both hands visible and no evidence of shock or trauma. Incidentally, this is the official line that is contradicted by the photos: “It is thought the teenager placed a gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger in a desperate bid to avoid capture and a possible death penalty,” claimed the British version of the National Enquirer, The Mirror. “Reports say the bullet passed through his throat, just missing his spinal cord, and came out the back of his neck.” Incidentally, earlier this week, a man we are told was Dzhokar appeared in court to plead not guilty to terrorism charges. However, according to a former wrestling teammate interviewed by the Boston Globe, the man in court “didn’t look like” Tsarnaev. Moreover, the man brought into court had a thick accent and Tsarnaev does not, as a cell phone video of him interacting with a child reveals. Now, it's not particularly nice to think that a government may be culpable or perhaps even responsible for wide-spread terror against its own citizens. But this would not be the first time someone who does not actually look, sound or act like the person from initial footage has been hauled before a court as a scapegoat. Remeber James Holmes and the Colorado shooting?
  4. Well with the unsanctioned release of the arrest photos, the idea that he was shot in the throat prior to the arrest has been completely debunked.
  5. I wonder if the police are doing such a poor job of it specifically to get the military involved. http://www.cato.org/raidmap
  6. So, the DHS planned a training drill terrorist attack for the Boston Marathon using backpack bombs. It's just that a "real terrorist" somehow had independently planned exactly the same thing and carried it out first. http://www.storyleak.com/dhs-boston-traini...ack-explosives/
  7. An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself. –Thomas Paine, A Dissertation on the First Principles of Government (1795) If you ask the government to hang a US citizen who the government claims (through a confession most certainly gained by torture) helped another US citizen kill three people because said citizen is not willing or unable to incriminate other US citizens then the government can apply that to all US citizens who they claim are involved with killing three (or perhaps less? One? Conspiracy to kill one?) people. That means, you trust the government to never confuse you or someone you love with someone they might actually be looking for. Because if they do and they have this precedent then you can hang just as easily.
  8. Oh, I just assume the cops beat the shit out of him after he was arrested.
  9. If there is government involvement it seems to me more likely that the brothers did it with agency help, without the knowledge of local PD. But maybe not, after all, it's not like the FBI has a history of doing this is there? http://www.naturalnews.com/035849_domestic..._plots_FBI.html
  10. For the series of photos - note the final one where both hands are on the boat, not grasping at his "life threatening throat wound". http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-23...ting-mouth.html "In response to the request, the FBI scoured Tamerlan Tsarnaev's telephone records, online history, associations with other people, movements and educational history, and agents interviewed him and his relatives. But the bureau found no evidence of terrorism activity either at home or abroad." http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/apr/2...gs-fbi-tsarnaev His mother claims to have been in constant contact with the FBI, which at this point in time is not being denied, but that's just her say-so. Time stamped tweets from the Boston Globe: https://twitter.com/BostonGlobe/status/323886829596205056 Note that the tweet is ~2hrs prior to the first bomb going off. Witness statement: http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=43635
  11. I'm a little intrigued as to how someone who is photographed climbing out of a boat with no blood in sight suddenly ends up in hospital with a life threatening neck wound he supposedly received prior to climbing out of the boat. But hey, call me a conspiracy nut. I'd also like to know how two people, with no apparent accomplices, who were under almost constant supervisions by the FBI managed to gather materials, plot and carry out a bombing on a public event - an event with an unprecedented police presence and a pre-event public briefing that there would be a "bombing simulation" taking place. But hey, this publicly verifiable knowledge is just crazy.
  12. A few questions. Where did these kids get their explosives? When did they get their explosives? When and where were they trained in handling, building and deploying explosives? Seems to be something no-one is asking.
  13. Firstly, I hope everyone from the forum is safe. Secondly did anyone else notice that the gold price went into nose-dive only hours before the bombings? Thirdly I'm not really sure who is going to be the scapegoat here. One would think that if the US wanted to go after North Korea they have plenty of reason without needing this, so to my mind it will be blamed on "patriots" and "pro-gun" groups - after all the Feds have been running drills right across the country playing out bombing scenarios. In either case, whoever gets the blame for this it has without doubt been done by the DHS - especially as eye-witness statements come to light that DHS officers were seen prior to the bombs going off telling people that their presence was "just a drill".
  14. Readmore: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science...ared-light.html Cool huh?
  15. True. Like the guy in Alabama who supposedly kidnapped that kid? "CBS also reported that Dykes, 65, had kidnapped the boy in hopes of spreading his anti-federal government message" http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationn...0,5900434.story
  16. When the administration uses an executive order to ban "assault" weapons (read: rifles with a pistol grip) approximately 20Million American citizens become instant terrorists. Assuming they have a buy-back/amnesty period, even if 95% of those citizens who own an "assault" rifle comply you still have, at the end period, ~1Million people who have an "illegal weapon" and no justification for owning it. These people must, therefore, be plotting an attack on the state and are as a result to be deemed a "terrorist threat". Now that what has been one of the worst kept secrets is public, that the administration can deem anyone they like as a terrorist and kill them without trial, it sets up a very sad situation where the administration goes to war on its own people. In further news: Whether this is an entirely false flag attack or just a "lucky" (for the administration that is) coincidence, Christopher Dorner has become a perfect test subject for gauging the public response to the expansion of drone warfare onto US soil. http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/376732...illed-policeman "Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil."
  17. You made me get my DVD out to quote it at you. The movie is, under its own premise, not Transhumanist. "In the near future - corporate networks reach out to the stars, electrons and light flow throughout the universe. The advance of computerisation, however, has not yet wiped out nations and ethnic groups." GitS:Innocence is probably closer to the verge of tans-humanism (in that the Major is merged with the Puppet Master) but is still firmly entrenched in CP. Gits:SAC (both gigs) is even less ambiguous. Set in a parallel universe where the Major never met the Puppet Master there's much less trans-humanism about, except for the budding philosophical questions that ultimately must be answered as man merges with machine, to quote: "It is a time when, even if nets were to guide all consciousness that had been converted to photons and electrons toward coalescing, standalone individuals have not yet been converted into data to the extent that they can form unique components of a larger complex." Which, really, is what SAC is all about. It's about the question, "what makes a person an individual?" To avoid spoilers I wont answer it for you and let you enjoy the discovery yourself .
  18. http://www.smh.com.au/technology/sci-tech/...1218-2bkhn.html http://youtu.be/WWafKdonIww So cool!
  19. You can watch too much GitS:SAC? It's certainly prettier than the standard browser.

    "We need a new concept for a blockbuster movie!" "Gattaca?" *blank stares* "With guns and explosions!" "BRILLIANT!" *cheers and back-slaps all round*
  21. If bionics get much better I'm going to have to start losing limbs.

    LAN - meaning Local Area Network is colloquially used in Newcastle, Australia to mean a "computer party" or "gaming weekend" as it is called in other places. What this means is that Malek is spending the Easter long weekend with friends in a house playing various games and talking various levels of rubbish and silliness with no regard to the existence of anything else in the world.

    I get the stress, But I would have taken them with me - screwed over everyone.

    TASER would be fairly easy to incorporate into the package - but the body of it would have to be permanent if you wanted to be able to screw in different options. The threaded entry and all circuitry would also have to be heavily insulated from the rest of the arm (else you're going to get yourself where metal meets flesh every time you fire it) I can see that as being a fairly standard mod (to have the TASER), even with retractable electrodes (electrified wolverine claws?).

    So what I am learning is that the only NPC in the game is Sophia? Almost. Mahmud is also an NPC... or more like Malek's own PC.
