[19:10:53] <nick> doesn't seem like there's any reporting on that wikileaks 'insurance' story
[19:21:47] <cmn32480> I looked briefly at it
[19:21:53] <cmn32480> but was not able to find anythign
[19:23:13] <nick> the story is legit, you cannot discount twitter anymore, but it's really strange there's no articles on it
[19:23:49] <nick> no one used it as a hook for a 'wikileaks 2016 a review
[19:23:52] <nick> type story
[19:24:16] <nick> can be used to build or trash wikileaks, easy for the clicks
[19:26:14] <cmn32480> I've not got the want to be on the list of people who downloaded it and read the material
[19:27:21] <nick> you don't get to read it, it's an insurance file, unless you want to try and crack it
[19:28:02] * cmn32480 doens't have the time or want to do that
[19:28:10] <cmn32480> and likely not the knowledge either
[19:29:03] <nick> i don't either, and most people don't, but it's still 'news'
[19:31:16] <cmn32480> agreed.. but if the only thign I can find is on the Wikileaks twitter feed... it is pretty thin
[19:31:57] <nick> this is my point... the wikileaks twitter feed exists, and it's a legit source... i'm not saying we run the summary as a tweet
[19:32:08] <nick> but the point is someone somewhere should have written an article on it by now
[19:33:14] <nick> the president elect makes public statements on twitter, corporations do press releases and official statements on facebook... this is the world we live in, they are primary sources now.
[19:36:08] <cmn32480> I woudl agree

[21:35:52] <cmn32480> that's a plus

[21:42:38] <charon_> wait, you don't care about the late Ms. Fisher? or driving the forklift?
[21:42:46] <charon_> or both, i guess
[21:42:49] <cmn32480> the comment
[21:44:02] <cmn32480> it was in response to this

[21:44:06] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews Comments | Carrie Fisher Dies at 60
[21:45:28] <charon_> oh i see. i didn't follow the link because i didn't see it was directly to a comment
[21:46:12] <cmn32480> pay attention.. there is gonna be a quiz.
[21:46:31] <charon_> that was a very diplomatic way to say "i don't give a fuck." good show
[21:47:06] <cmn32480> i thought it was more "toss somethign in the queue or quit yer bitching"
[21:47:20] <charon_> edIII gave him a about the same response
[21:47:40] <nick> cmn32480, sorry but i had to write a reply to that AC saying i agreed with them.
[21:47:53] <cmn32480> ok
[21:48:02] <cmn32480> you are also entittled to an opinoin
[21:48:27] <cmn32480> this year we shoulda had a "Death" nexus
[21:48:38] <nick> it was to the AC about 'breaking news' not the comment you replied to
[21:48:43] <nick> just to clarify
[21:49:12] <cmn32480> I read it
[21:49:29] <cmn32480> I win some.. I lose most of them
[21:49:42] <nick> i'm on your side with the relevance thing though, same as edIII ... if Vera Rubin is newsworthy, where's the submission?
[21:50:00] <cmn32480> _I_ p[ut one in on it

[22:20:19] <charon_> ooooh, it's a spooooky ghost!
[22:20:34] <n1> as i was saying, snow is unavoidable here
[22:21:28] <n1> 'Calumet has had an average annual snowfall of 207.7 inches over the last 30 years, which is 827% more than the national average (22.4 inches).'
[22:21:48] <charon_> that's a fair bit of snow
[22:22:53] <n1> there's been about 60inches so far

[22:23:35] <charon_> looks like boston's average is around 50"
[22:53:07] <n1> how is charon_ today
[22:54:12] <charon_> tired. stayed up way too late last night and got only a few hours sleep.
[22:54:21] <charon_> and you?
[22:56:20] <n1> aside from having to shovel snow earlier, all is good here, been playing the game they call twitter and posting gifs.
[22:58:29] <charon_> twitter? ewww
[23:00:10] <n1> yeah i know... rather unique circumstances lead me to actually use it after having an account that i had never used for over a year

[23:02:05] <charon_> lot's of people doing mini-analysis right after?
[23:02:21] <charon_> ugh, that extra apostrophe. i am ashamed
[23:03:20] <n1> yeah, when you literally watch your purchasing power vanish in a few seconds, you want some answers or consolation before sleep is a possibility
[23:04:48] <n1> for a while, and it's still continuing, it felt like every morning i was waking up and just burning some money
