Harold heralds inhumation. Gouda gaudily grieves. Peachy prepares powerpoint

Well, the other day Haroldus had announced that MB is dead and Gouda reported it to the folks here, in the following terms:

I thought that this could use some numerical confirmation so have had the user interaction numbers that MB achieved in the last 6 weeks or so (measured by number of daily comments) charted.

Youse don’t need to be a charting geniuses to see what’s happening here. It’s a mighty channel heading down, with some seasonal variation (driven by day of week) around the trend line.

At this rate, I’d expect that by the end of January 2024, MB will struggle to generate 100 comments on their busiest day.

For folks so keen on always looking for signs of deflation and collapse everywhere (iron ore prices, Bitcoin, houses, dam levels), they sure seem to have missed the ones closest to home.

Can you superimpose house prices on that chart

the big collapse would have been when covid didnt kill the golden goose

To be fair there was a period of time when I couldn’t post anything. Because of site problems but they don’t tell you what’s going on. Which is fucken annoying.

But I also haven’t been posting because of denis, yokel and fn sweeper and another dickhead called DSS.

Funnily enough I haven’t heard from those knobgoblins for a a while now, but it may be all too late.

Coming

Get woke go broke

Stewie

I have a suspicion they’ve implemented a new bespoke censoring mechanism.

My comments seem to go straight through when I occasionally post to DLS articles, but go via some approval check/review on Leith’s articles… I probably posted one to many snide remarks, or he may be still sulking over me calling Kiev Kiev instead of Kyiv (honestly only cucks change the English language to accommodate invaders preferred pronouns).

Anyhow, occasionally Leith lets a more innocuous remark through, and I get notifications that someone has replied to my comment, but when I eventually get around to checking the notification whatever the comment that was posted in reply has been censored.

Perhaps the quiteness on the Western front might be MB listening to those complains and those hobgoblins being more actively censored when they attack other people’s opinions.

harry

Being forced to say Kyiv and Türkiye is like pronouns for countries.

Stewie

Exactly – it is also a means of signalling which supplicant nation or society Western Elites are prepared to allow to ingratiate themselves with. China, they ran around and changed Peking to Bejing – what a cuck. Then even worse they sucked up to India, Bombay to Mumblefart or whatever the constipated sounding name is meant to be.

But for some reason Germany will never be referred to as DeutschLAND and they’re never going to refer to Moscow as Moskavo.

It is a signalling mechanism by the media to jump on the bandwangon.

JimsCentralBanking

Christmas is the ideal opportunity to annoy the whole family by asking someone to pass the Turkiye.

If you understood the language then you’d get it. Stop being a fucking moron. It is Київ not Киев.

Thing is I am quite mild in my comments and believe I am centrist. I certainly don’t love the party of the rodent any more than I love the party of albeau or greens. If anything I am what labor should be – supporter of the strayan worker. ie strayan/worker. Neither of which albeau and his karens are.

I suspect it is my posting stories and comments about the ROP that is the problem for those cockwombles.

Gouda

The terminal sign for embee was their social media mentions which rarely went beyond single digits. One just has to look at the level of engagement with EZFKA twitter (@auseconomicunit) compared to @macrobusiness.

You would think that any economically conservative, anti-immigration publisher would find a following and do well since the Elon Musk takeover. But even with a decade long head start they haven’t been able to build up a substantial following.

Then there’s their decision over the comments section – arguably the most interesting part of the site, yet now a shadow of its former self from being locked behind a paid subscription service. Why would anyone bother where there’s so many freely accessible sites like Reddit, Twitter, Whirlpool, Ozbargain etc?

Stewie

While Arthur makes some valid points the guy is basically a full time paid troll of Blockstream and Barry Silbert’s DCG whose sole job and occupation for the past 10 years has been to attack any iteration of Bitcoin other than BTC from his mother’s basement. So I would take his opinion with a grain of salt, as he takes whatever grains of truth that support his view and mixes it in with the flour of his own opinion and speculation.

Without a doubt there are many ‘forged’ documents – mainly final versions of the Bitcoin white paper whose meta data indicates that they were printed out or formated well after the supposed dates they were created. What Arthur doesn’t mention is that there is also a large amount of evidence, like earlier iterations or drafts of the white paper, that do support his claim. In the end it will be for the courts to decide and as I’ve said before predicting the outcome there is no better than a coin toss.

I’ve long maintained CSW is a very flawed individual, however I still think on the balance of probabilities that he is Satoshi, as he is practically the only person in the space whose vision of what Bitcoin should be remains aligned with the original Bitcoin whitepaper. However as to whether he will be able to prove that in court remains another matter.

If you want a more objective criticism of Craig and of his likely chances of success then I suggest you have a read of an email addressed to CSW by Calvin Ayre, who happens to be his main financial backer in these court cases, which was recently leaked to the public (the link is now dead but have a copy of the transcript of it:

“My last direct communication on this issue. Please read carefully.” Dated 23 September. Judge by yourself please:

As I sit here I am on a beach in Southern Spain. I have a good life. I have every intention of keeping it this way.  Right now the only negative in my life is your litigation disaster (and getting old but that one I cannot fix). I will accept your explanation that you did not actually threaten me so the following is the situation we find ourselves in.

I have been operating under the assumption that you and Ramona have the keys and that you were simply pretending not to have them as part of some strategy that you have trapped yourself in. But now that we are looking at a situation where continuing to deny you have them ruins your life and damages your supporters, I am forced to make a tough decision. It no longer matters if you have the keys or not as it is my opinion based on advice from Zafar and others that you cannot win the COPA trial if you do not sign at Harvard so I have no choice in what I have to do.

This of course will also mean that you lose all the other cases (other than maybe the token theft case…but to me losing COPA even puts this at risk) as COPA will set precedent that you are not Satoshi in law.  All IP other than nChain patents will disappear. This means that you are not going to be able to get a court to declare that you own any tokens either. We have also verified that there is no complete paper trail evidencing the trust owning any tokens. This after nearly a year of Zurich reviewing all the evidence you have. This means you cannot repay me the money you owe me for all the litigation to date. This means every cent spent on your cases is me pissing away my kids inheritance.  If you have the keys, your best play is to now use them. Going to jail for perjury but having the entire world accept you are a flawed Satoshi is infinitely better than losing this case and only being considered likely to be a flawed Satoshi after your death by historians as no other realistic person is ever found. However, its my opinion that once the world accepts you are a flawed Satoshi, everything changes and all of this just goes away. I can make it all go away in fact. There is zero reason to continue to pretend you do not have the keys if you really have them. Side bonus is that using the keys in this way, combined with verdict in Florida will likely be a accepted replacement for proper paper work for financial institutions.

So either you are a moron for intentionally losing this case, or you are a moron for actually not having the keys…either way, I am not following you over the cliff…and I actually have concerns with Stefan even being a witness as I know what they will do to him for this. My opinion in having watched this play out over the years is that its clear you are hopelessly bad at litigation. The ONLY reason you won in Florida is the other side got greedy and tried to both steal your shit and ruin your reputation and this was conflicting agendas and so confused the jury. The other side will not be making this mistake in London.

To me I am doing you and your supporters a favor…. I will cover this in CG as us still being sure you are Satoshi even as its clear that you were run over by the combined forces of Silicon Valley, US payments companies and the entire Crypto world. We will say that we believe you did forge some documents to replace ones you destroyed earlier to try to pretend you were not Satoshi. We will say this is because your Asperger’s makes you not think and act like an adult.  You are like a super smart Teenager.  This is not how this would play out in the media if we spend toe to toe with COPA and they still win which is what is most likely…in addition to the massive waste of my kids wealth…

Its clear that once you lose you will need me more than ever. I will be the only one standing between your family and the soup kitchen. At least at the moment, depending on how self-destructive you get, I am not stopping my funding of the Association, the ecosystem or nChain and you, in fact this decision makes funding them a lot easier for me. From my perspective this decision improves everything now. Your continuing to accept this funding is your acceptance that our existing deal is still valid and that you agree with me that my stopping funding a lost cause is not a violation on my side. You are further agreeing that you personally will pay me back for all the money I have spent on your project even if the trust never gets any tokens.

I do not believe this case is fundable in any other way, I do not believe you will even be able to get a competent law firm to work with you on this as I expect all the lawyers to bail once they know I am out. The analysis above will be done by everyone and they are coming to the same conclusion. However, I will support any new funding options you can find if this is your wish just send the plan to Alain and I.  I do not expect this to happen however as you have made yourself just to toxic for this and your enemies have piled on in branding you as such…they are ever so gleeful with every round you pinch off into your own feet. As I said above…I believe what I am doing is actually tough love, its definitely not meant to hurt you and it will actually help you looking at this from where I am sitting. The lawyers all dropping you because you ran out of funding is the best case scenario that I can see if you cannot do a Harvard signing.

By the way…you lost both contempt of court cases. Christen was the one that saved you and you are acting like you are too selfish and ignorant to even understand this. I don’t believe you have even thanked anyone. Both of these contempt’s would have been used against you in all other cases.

Calvin clearly believes CSW is Satoshi, but he also believes he is likely to lose the court case unless he can actually sign in court.

There have apparently been a number of mock trials or prep sessions with CSW being cross examined in practice all of which were complete disasters.

Anyhow, as to whether he is or isn’t Satoshi is a question I’ve always found less interesting than the underlying technology – the main fact that had always interested me with BSV was that it actually works. I’ve used a lot of crypto at different times and none have compared to the seamless experience of BSV, and it achieves what the paper originally described – peer to peer trustless micro payments.

Shame that its been euthanised by US Fintech and payment processors, but that is the way the world works sometimes.

Given he’s already essentially won one trial around issues that deal with much the same topic with much the same evidence related issues I would suggest that the odds are higher than 1%.

That said I’m with Calvin – unless he signs he’s most likely going to lose.

Stewie

It was against Ira Kleinman who received significant funding from DCG. Ira lost the 50bn claim and the 100m found against CSW in the same trial is owed to himself and his wife, there is another ongoing case as to how much of an interest if any Dav Klienman actually had in the entity CSW was found to have engaged in ‘conversion’ over.

Stewie

One for the court Peachy, like Britt’s trial there are too many vested interests with their own agendas commenting on this case.

I dont agree that he’s got a 1% chance of winning, but I would agree that the odds aren’t in his favour, as outlined in Calvin’s email.

I’m no fan of the personal qualities of the man, to be honest I take some pleasure in whatever personal suffering and angst these trials might be causing him because I believe he’s a fuckwit and significantly harmed the adoption of a technology that he played some indisputable roll in developing, whether that was as Satoshi or in collaboration with as a part of a gestalt Satoshi entity.

https://www.theage.com.au/politics/victoria/bills-to-soar-as-victoria-moves-away-from-gas-20231214-p5erjv.html

Victoria’s gas demand is the strongest in the nation, but during summer, when consumption drops off, enough gas is produced from the Bass Strait to offset usage at home. The Bass Strait production is due to drop off from 2027, cutting the domestic supply.

“There have been moratoriums on onshore and offshore gas production in Victoria … it does leave us with future supply capacity constraints, particularly in cold winters. That will push up costs, no doubt.”

Hey, has anyone heard of a place in Australia where you can get gas? In Victoria, there are rumours of an El Dorado to the north where gas flows like water.

$2 a cigarette. No doubt bought the can of coke for $3 when she stopped at the deli to buy her cancer sticks.

Probably spends $200 per week on smokes.

stagmal

they don’t recycle the cans either, 10c each, there are homeless rough sleepers in the main street of dubbo who just sit there all day smoking or buying $1 bottle of supermarket brand cola, they throw the bottles on the ground after they drink them rather than cash them in for the 10c. the reality is a lot of these people are on the DSP and are just insane, that’s why they cant secure housing anywere bc no one will rent to them and they get kicked out of public housing for being a menace.

it still doesnt explain why we’re seeing more and more of them around lately though

Aussie Soy Boy

Even the cheap units in bad areas are being rented by normal people now because they take whatever they can get.

One by one all the anti-social shit is being fed out onto the streets or living in tents. Once they are homeless 90% of them don’t really recover.

How does she even afford a $50 pack of smokes

Aussie Soy Boy

If she gave up the cancer sticks for 6 months she could have enough to buy an old van to live in. After another 12 months of not sucking on the fags she could upgrade herself to something much nicer.

Her smoking habit is probably the equivalent of a rented room somewhere. She’s literally chosen smoking and living in a tent over sleeping in a warm comfortable bed.

Apparently a lot of chain smoking schizophrenics are basically self medicating.

They often think this, but smoking increases the metabolism of a few antipsychotics, effectively lowering one’s blood levels. So those with a chronic psychotic condition who smoke end up being undertreated, relapse more often and require more medication to manage their symptoms.

Imperial Germany fought the allies to a near stalemate in WW1 which was a much better outcome than Nazi Germany achieved. Germany is just a strong country, or at least it was. Anyway if we judge economic systems solely by martial performance then we should go Stalinist.

Nazism wouldn’t be an improvement on globalism. Swapping one totalitarian dictatorship for another one. Even if we don’t get WW3 it would still be shit, living according to the whims of some new Austrian painter.

I would much prefer to live under a Nationalist totalitarian regime than the Globalist totalitarian regime we are headed towards.

Imperial Germany fought the allies to a near stalemate in WW1 which was a much better outcome than Nazi Germany achieved. 

They are the same outcome. Reparations from WWI destroyed Germany’s budget and eventually led to hyperinflation and the rise of Hitler. One of Hitler’s first policies was to cancel WW1 reparation payments.

What can I say except, MB RIP
 
But here’s the thing: they weren’t wrong; there was a possible (even probable) case where Aussie RE and the broader Aussie economy collapsed, just as MB predicted.
 
If you ask me, their biggest f’up was the assumption that Chinese growth would collapse around 2012 due to the so-called middle income trap. This was their key assumption. Look back, and you’ll get a good laugh from HnH’s predictions of iron oxide collapsing to under $20 per ton (with under 200 metric tons of imported IO). Instead, today we have $130/ton IO (with over 1000 metric tons of imported IO). DLS couldn’t see that he was wrong about China, and as a consequence, he couldn’t imagine any case where the Aussie RE game could continue to grow for another 12 years. All I’m saying is that there was a possible case where MB’s predictions all came true.
Unfortunately, as a small or fringe economics site, you need to make these bold predictions, or you have nothing differentiated to say.

OzCuck

What happens if the west allows itself to crash but China doesn’t? We should have nuked China in the 50s.

A fly in your ointment

It’s already happening

OzCuck

I don’t see how either are crashing. Sure life has probably got worse for plebs in both but it doesn’t really mean anything when you have an inexhaustable supply of vermin to replace those that want to give up.

A fly in your ointment

Its a super slomo. All large empires decline and crash slowly.

US debt already began to be not as desirable (ZH recently reported on that) and if the world gets lucky the US will at best cause only pure proxy wars. It’s not impossible for all of us here to actually see the stage where the US decline becomes rapid and even the breakup of US (except Coming, he’s multi-jabbed so no guarantees there)

OTOH, slopes have 1/4 of the world market in its own backyard and if US goes bust they can just turn towards self and try to fill the void left by US

MBrefugee

Not sure I’m with you.

If the west dies than Chinese mercantilism is doubly dead, but that doesn’t mean that China itself is dead.
China’s debt is much more like Japan’s debt circa 1990, it’s completely unmanageable (in any financial sense), but the debt is largely owed to itself and that which is owed foreigners is uncollectable.

Resolving this will result in a system wide financial haircut but does this really matter?
I would say it doesn’t matter unless the Chinese themselves insist on making it matter.
Sure, they’ll have to reduce imports (such as IO and coal) because they’ll have no dollars to pay for these resources (but interestingly for Australia there is no country capable of even taking 1000Mt of IO per year. Logically we’ll find a way to work this out)
In the end, what you’re talking about is the simultaneous logic and illogic of globalism.
Globalism is a Gordian knot. We’re all supposed to exist in this forever state of mutual interdependence, all looking for solutions but finding the problems are impossible to solve. Someday someone’s going to simply cut the rope. That someone is probably China.

A fly in your ointment

An age old joke about a mouse banging an elephant (and the coconut falls off and hits her in head and the elephant scream, mouse then says Yeah baby, see how my fuck makes every woman scream) is what describes all the predictions Llewdo and bleatho made: a pure coincidence.
Llewdo is big on King dollar and China will collapse in 18 months which is an ideology, nit an economical prediction.

All I’m saying is that there was a possible case where MB’s predictions all came true.

Yes. That possibility is only if by some miracle alternative factors accidentally cause the same effect as what thr hot bros predicted, never by the reasons they thought,
Like the blind chicken and a grain, a scatter gun kill, a….

MBrefugee

I don’t thing that their follow-on conclusions were inconsistent with their base-cases of China going ex-growth (or even bellyup)
IMHO China was 100% responsible for Australia sailing through the GFC largely unaffected. If all Aussie growth (resulting from Chinese growth) was suddenly to evaporate, right at the moment that the FED was tightening, well lets just say things wouldn’t have been rosy in Australia.

Remember that the AUD was above $1.10 to the USD at the time. There would have been lots of follow-on effects if 30% of Aussie exports (and 100% of our growth) just disappeared over-night.

I knew some guys that worked for Qantas and gave a leg up to a leso and then her leso partner didn’t like her work hours so made her give up being a pilot.

So I am of the opinion that pretty much any idiot can be a pilot.

For 99.99% of the time being a pilot is no different to being a bus driver. It is the 0.01% of the time that they earn their money.

DIE and the elevation of diversity over merit is a cancer in society. Not saying this (apparently near full blooded) indigenous Australian did not meet the requirements to get through – but if she in any way allowed through some elements on diversity grounds then it is an imperilment of public safety.

When I fly in plane I always breath a sigh of relief when I see the pilot as being a white or east asian male, anything else leaves me uneasy.

i think being a bus driver is probably harder most of the time

Coming

100%

driving a heavy vehicle is absolutely terrifying

on top of that you’re dealing with absolute ferals since it’s mainly feral areas that are serviced by bus rather than train and bus drivers have to speak and interact with the riders

being a train “driver” is a joke since the only buttons are go and stop and you don’t interact with the riders who are higher quality anyway

it’s similar to firemen vs police
one job is a nightmare the other is a bludge and a joke

there should be a wage difference of at least 100% in my opinion but unions distort what should be fair market pricing

“driving a heavy vehicle is absolutely terrifying”

Blah ha ha hah! Dued you are so terrified of driving you get chauffeured around by Uber.

Driving a heavy vehicle is no different to driving any other vehicle – it becomes an extension of your body. It isn’t exactly complex either, a couple gears, brake and a steering wheel.

Flying a plane you need to know a whole lot more, a vast amount more – keeping a large plane aloft in thin air isn’t as easy as it seems.

While 99.99% of the time it is probably little different from driving a bus, it is just that 0.01% of the time when they earn their money. Read up on synopsis of near miss air disasters and it basically comes down to the skill and experience of the pilot making all the difference.

Not wishing to be rude mate, but have you ever driven a really wide car/truck/bus in Sydney peak hour traffic? Say 2.2 to 2.4m wide
Try driving something wide across the harbour bridge, it’s terrifing, there’s other roads where the lanes are really narrow like Pacific highway at Pymble, it’s scarry how close all the other cars are and they’re close on both sides. Just a few inches right or left and you demolish the side of someones $100K Merc.

Stewie

I’ve driven trucks, tractors and other heavy vehicles, maybe not through tight city streets of Sydney but enough to appreciate the technical skill and concentration it requires.

But honestly do you really think driving a truck through Syd is going to be as cognitively loaded as following instructions moving through a 3D airspace, dealing with cross winds, calculating fuel consumption, flight times, etc.

The point is flying a plane is an order of magnitude higher in terms of stuff that can go wrong, and the margin of error is far smaller.

Sure with auto pilots and pilot assist it might make it easier to the point where you can compare it to driving a bus (compare but not equal to), but I maintain it is the 0.01% of the time when you want someone with a high cognitive load to solve a problem.

You stall a bus and you can start it up again in moments – you stall a plane and you fall out of the sky.

That part is true – although it has gotten easier for Bus drivers too.

Once upon a time they had to sell the bus tickets and police who got on their bus – now that is the role of the ticket inspectors.

All Bus drivers have to do now is sit in their plastic bubble, listen to the radio and avoid hitting other drivers (which can be difficult on Sydney roads).

Wrt modernday cars what’s interesting about all of the so called advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS
technologies is that they do not result in reduced collision incident rates nor reduced death rates.
Some might go as far as to say they’re a massive failure (but don’t tell the car production industry and definitely don’t tell the car regulation industry)
ADAS technology is a requirements these for covereted ***** 5 star safety ratings. Even the very safest 2015 car that would have gotten 5 stars under the old star rating guidelines is today at best a 3 star car using today’s ratings.
But here’s the thing there’s absolutely no real world data supporting the theory that ADAS saves lives, or reduces accidents or is in any way beneficial. Some of the recent stats are actually pointing to this tech being dangerous, causing accidents and resulting in increased deaths. Oops!

So how do we decide if this tech is really beneficial?
Interestingly it’s not an engineering question and real world data is neither sought after nor appreciated when you dig it up.

A fly in your ointment

Whatever your feeleings about ADAS, unlike shitloads of other inventtions of modern times, adaptive cruise control makes long drive less suicidal. It should be mandatory same as blind spot alarm.
But otoh long life tyres and brakes should be banned (because they can halve the braking distance easily).

MBrefugee

While some of the ADAS the ideas are good, the implementations often leave a lot to be desired. And then there’s the human nature risk adjustment aspect whereby we all create greater risk if we feel that some magic technology has our back.
But I stand by what I said, in the early days of ABS and Airbags the advantage was astounding, just jumping off the page at you (as in we need to get this tech into every car)
The results are nowhere near as clear cut with the latest rounds of car tech yet we a awarding these safety stars (for technology) as if there is an obvious safety advantage.

In the US down-sizing pickup trucks would definitely save more lives than even the very best implementation of the very best ADAS tech. Unfortunately this trend towards over-sizing our cars / trucks has taken off in Australia, so get ready for more road deaths, especially pedestrian deaths.

MBrefugee

Categories of Vulnerable road users keep changing as new sectors open and old ons close (eg motor scooters replaced by Ebikes)
where do you put powered skate-boards?
It’s also not clear that every country classifies road deaths the same way. For instance is a killed person getting in.out of a car a pedestrian?
Bottom line is you need to be very careful making comparisions between statistics in one country where skate boards are unheard of vs another where they’re common. These local road use differences showup in the effectivness of their assisted drive tech solutions when used on your actual roads.

https://www.roadsafety.gov.au/nrss/fact-sheets/vulnerable-road-users

A fly in your ointment

There’s nothing more to be desired to adaptive cruise control and blind spot alarm, US is not the world and once again, as much as I agree lots of new inventions are for problems that are yet to be identified, road riding a bike (with an engine) feels much less stressful when a little light lights up in the drongo’s mirror telling him that he can kill someone (including himself) if s/he turns or changes lane.

MBrefugee

With many of the new technologies I believe it is more important to ask yourself the question: when does this tech fail to function?
Rather than simply asking, when does this tech function?

For instance, if we say that lane assist and blindspot detection work correctly 90% of the time you might say, wow implement it now, that would represent a huge reduction in car accidents with lots of lives saved etc

What’s missing from the 90% effective stat, is the 10% fails are almost exclusively for the most vulnerable catagory of road users like bicycles and scooters and the unexpected.
This is where learned behaviour becomes a problem because the driver now expects a warning from the system and feels that it is safe to change lanes anytime there’s no warning. So your drongo still runs over the bicyclists he just doesn’t feel as bad about it because the car failed to warn him/her.

wrt emergency braking (and automatic braking) which are an essential part of any Adaptive cruise control you have a whole host of failure cases that depend on the sensor technology. In the case of Lidar (snow flakes can be a huge issue), for monocular SLAM / DME heavy rain and fog tend to be problem cases.
For forward radar, fails are usually caused by some unexpected reflections / multipath and/or blinding from other powerful radar systems (such as driving near an airport) or other car radars.

At the moment there are a ton of emergency braking fail cases (for Mazda’s in particular) that have resulted in the car braking and being rear ended when there was no risk at all. (I believe there’s even a Class action underway)

Now if you do the job properly with multi-sensor data fusion, well lets just say the DoD is very uncomfortable with the main-streaming of this tech. Add any sort of Gaussian mixture filtering or rjmcmc or similar and someone will be knocking on your door.

A fly in your ointment

You never drove a car with ADAS, roight?

* 90% figure is rubbish, perhaps accurate for those bolt-on camera rear view mirrors from aliexpress. Try 99.99%.
* Adas is assistive much the same as SRS is supplementary – none is a replacement for primary. In fact most emergency braking assistance is engaged in the last moment long past the human reflex thus impossible to teach bad habits (learned behaviour).
* all safety systems have a fail watchdog and loudly announce inaccuracy and/or fault. So the snowflake reference is perhaps valid for Elon Musk’s coal powered cars.
* you still have to look in RV mirror to see the blind spot alarm. If you don’t, we’ll, you already killed that cyclist so luckily the adas will sound a loud warning telling you you’re a drongo driver. As a rider, you can see the alarm turning on in the rv mirror and proceed with a bit more certainty that a drongo will not knock you off. But if you think you’ll be safe because a little triangle lit up in drongo’s rv mirror and it will prevent the drongo from knocking you off, well, you’re a drongo rider too. Meet your destiny.
* if someone rearends another car it is 100% rear-ending driver’s failure to adjust and adapt driving style and distance based on the road conditions. Mention of that principle/rule is vague and too broad in Aus road book.

I agree that lane assistance can be iffy as I experienced it with my VW 11yrs ago. It often calculated road crack patches as lane boundaries, so it was permanently off. The one on my Merc is immaculate and it has not failed/miscalculated once in the last 7yr/3600000km. It is reasonable to expect improvement with every new generation of adas.
Your main point that contemporary adas is luling drivers into automation doing the job for them thus making them inherently less involved thus more ignorant – is inaccurate and in conflict with the real life experience (to put it mildly)

If others are interested then I’m happy to discuss ADAS technology, but fair warning it gets very technical very quickly.

I don’t think I can really discuss this topic without taking a deep dive into kinematics.
In the end you need a good framework for extracting realitive motion of all the cars and other objects on the road.

Understanding Machine vision and Visual SLAM concepts are also sort of manditory for any good implementation.

Here’s a thought:
With MB deep in cardiac arrest, can it still be revived?
From what I can see, DLS has already decided to simply milk MB’s remains, extract ever ounce of goodness from the site, then leave the remains out front for council cleanup.
But does it have to end this way?
Over the last year the intellectual level of MB’s comments section has drifted lower and lower and lower again. Seriously, what does it say about a Macroeconomics site when it becomes your go to spot for plumbing advice and bicycle repairs?
How do you fix this?
Anyone have any ideas.
In a curious way MB’s demise is Australia’s demise in microcosm, on the one hand we have the plan (it’s fantastic, it’s inspiring, it’s the future) but then there’s reality.

stagmal

Good point, I’m definitly over it.
If MB has any residual value, it is probably as sort of gathering space for young Aussies interested in tomorrow’s Australia (the economics, the business, the politics from their perspective).

I’d say they’re actually more a repeat of boomers. Ironically the potential of the internet has passed them by.

It doesn’t hurt to look at all the reasons they failed so others can learn from it.

I still find it hilarious that reusa produced their most reliable content.

It’s unfixable because the website is useless as an investment tool to check ideas. That was my entire reason for joining; to find a website that could better accurately assess and describe what is, in the Australian economy.

At some point you have to question why two blokes working from home writing a blog that makes maybe $100kp.a., are still writing said blog if they were correct about anything.

It’s the economics equivalent of the property investor selling you $200 seminar tickets that has been doing the rounds for a decade.

They’re failures and so is the website.

Agreed, I’m not at all interested in DLS’s investment advice and unfortunately there’s no way for other member generated ideas to survive. It’s a toxic environment, so why extend it’s life? good points.

Accidentally turned on the ABC wireless this morning to hear Warren Entsch giving the BOM a serve, rightly so, along with the MSM who flew up their to see a fallen tree. Unprecendented” he says, suing the buzzword of the year, describing the following rain event which followed failed cyclone Jasper. “A 100 year event” he espoused. Funny that. I was in Cairns in the late 90s when a Cat 5 hit. Incredible to watch and quite frightening. A few days later I took a trip to the Barron Falls and watched millions of gallons of water flow over every minute, truly astounding. Went back for several days and it seemed unending. Anyway Warren said there were people on the roof of a building in Wujal Wujal and rescue choppers had been unable to evacuate them. I’m gonna call BS on that one. Maybe just for the cameras. The weather would wash them off!

You are incorrect in this case. A cat 5 cyclone has never hit cairns in living memory, they usually end up going south. The only reason cairns exists is because the township of smithfield was washed away in the 1800’s. Wujal Wujal is beyond isolated, with about a dozen land slides either side. Even though they have evacuated the township, the adf are still flying supplies in and then boating them to ayton, even though there is an airstip at helensvale. I will be flying in there on Saturday in a private plane.

The fuck does it mean then

Yeah aussies like to be cryptic, withhold information then pass it off as some sort of intellectual feat. Fuck off cunt.

It;s another reason why you’re all going to die and be replaced.

Lol. You really don’t know what it means, do you?

I prefer to leave you in ignorance then, Habib.

I had a kebab yesterday, sold to me by a very nice lady in a hijab. You should go and have a kebab.

The IDF fucks up massively, again.

A couple of weeks ago an IDF soldier smoked a heroic civilian who had killed a terrorist who had been massacring people.
The dead hero was on his knees with his hands in the air shouting “don’t shoot I’m Jewish” in Hebrew when he was executed in cold blood.

Now, unbelievably, this…

Brutal.

The mother wears a short skirt showing off her great legs for an old woman, and here’s Britt wearing a dress down to the floor to cover up her cankles and big fat disgusting pasty thighs.

Fucking hell these clowns Britt and her bitch titted boyfriend going to France to live. Does she not realise the French absolutely hate fat fucks like herself?

It’s amazing how being totally into yourself can/could get a hotty. All it took was a Quicksilver shirt and enough beach time and some sort of tradie job. Look at that little manlet. Well either he is a manlet or they are tall.

fuck she’s so hot

As per usual with any video showing ethics behaving badly Reddit has already removed the video… the illusion that blacks make good citizens and aren’t the cause of societal entropy must be maintained.

Oaks Estate is the nearest thing Canberra has to a good old fashioned slum with lots of shitty accommodation full of derelicts, junkies and losers. No sane person would ever go near the place.

what about charnwood

LSWCHP

Charnwood is like Vaucluse compared to Oaks Estate.

A fly in your ointment

did he catch her stealing and things went the wrong way?

maybe she abused him in a defacto relationship and he eventually snapped?

or perhaps she constantly made herself available and open but always blueballed him?

can it be anything other than the simple case of unsolicited forced intercourse gone for worse?

just thinking…

He’s just moved up to the top of my celebrity dead pool list for 2024.

He sounds so bland but I guess he’s still got a lot of 50-60 year old women that still love him.
