[11:47:16] * AzumaHazuki is a bit tired out, had an IV shift tonight and it got busy towards 3:30 AM
[11:47:52] <AzumaHazuki> i saw a bunch of things i'd never, ever seen before. Vecuronium for example. THAT was fun. 5 vials, all of which needed reconstitution, plus the base bag they get shot into needed to be half-drained first
[11:48:50] <FatPhil> why the peak in the middle of the night?
[11:50:06] <AzumaHazuki> hell if i know @_@

[11:51:08] <AzumaHazuki> oh no, each base bag only gets one medicine
[11:51:36] <FatPhil> but in parallel? or serially?
[11:51:50] <AzumaHazuki> i am honestly not sure but i think some of those were running in parallel
[11:52:37] <FatPhil> As long there was also a machine that goes 'ping', I'm sure all is good.

[12:01:51] <FatPhil> Gotta love Northern Ireland... "Irish nationalists and pro-British loyalists clashed at the peace wall"
[12:02:16] <FatPhil> At least there wasn't fighting in the War Room.
[12:02:40] <AzumaHazuki> the UK's kind of jumped the shark, did you notice?
[12:02:59] <AzumaHazuki> i mean it did when they gave Thatcher political power instead of feeding her feet-first into a wood chipper, but...yeah
[12:07:24] <FatPhil> Thanks America!
[12:08:03] <FatPhil> Alpha-testing on Chile was inconclusive, so you wanted to do a bigger study on the UK.
[12:08:16] <AzumaHazuki> i don't know if Thatcher can be blamed on the US
[12:08:26] <AzumaHazuki> it seems the entire Anglosphere went fucking stupid in the early 80s
[12:11:47] <FatPhil> I forget which of the Adam Curtis documentaries went into it, but Thatcher was given an IV drip of Milton Friedman's more-academic-than-thou economics-by-someone-who's-never-run-a-business.

[12:14:54] <AzumaHazuki> mweh, i don't wanna throw my lappy across the room so i won't watch. i'm just glad to know she's roasting in Hell and will be for a good long time, probably to the point there won't be a human race to reincarnate into when she's done paying for her crimes
[12:15:21] <AzumaHazuki> ...especially since, to a degree or two of separation, they're still ongoing
[12:22:14] <FatPhil> Curtis' documentaries are all worth a watch when you're bored and have time. Meticulously sourced history, tons of primary sources, interviews from the time, etc.. I'd recommend them all, to be honest. They won't increase your feelings of well-being, though!

[14:28:43] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Amazon Workers in Bessemer, Alabama Have Voted Not to Form a Union - https://sylnt.us - people-have-spoken
[14:35:30] <AzumaHazuki> c0lo, FatPhil, can i get your opinions about this sub-thread here? https://soylentnews.org Specifically, i'm not alone in thinking Hallow is acting really, really sus here, am I?
[14:35:32] <systemd> ^ 03SoylentNews Comments | Update on Dominion vs Sidney Powell ( https://soylentnews.org )
[14:54:46] <c0lo> Zumi, sincerely, there are too many possible explanations for anyone's behaviour. khallow's own explanation is non-contradictory, I have no reasons to sus him.
[14:58:36] <c0lo> And no, I don't think khallow is that stupid to have participated in Jan 6. There was no chance a putsch would have been successful. I looked for days in advance on Twitter and other places and it wasn't more coherence in what I saw than it was in Occupy movements.
[15:00:44] <c0lo> khallow is past the age he'd gamble his reality for "revolutionary ideals".
[15:05:38] <AzumaHazuki> i wonder about that. there's something about his posts that are the textual equivalent of "the crazy eyes," know what i mean?
[15:05:57] <AzumaHazuki> like, the kind of person whose eyes are open juuuust a smidge too wide and who doesn't quite connect with you when your gazes meet?
[15:06:49] <AzumaHazuki> and this paranoia over "secret police" is ill-placed in a supposed conservative, law and order type
[15:10:51] <c0lo> Not quite. I lived (and survived) for more than two decades of secret police. Entrapment was one of the dirty trick they used and, by the very nature of it, there can't be fundamental differences in how the technique is used by a communist secret police or fbi.
[15:13:15] <AzumaHazuki> indeed. but they're on his side. he's a tribal conservative and "secret police" types are always the same way save for in the throes of some anomalous communist takeover
[15:13:42] <AzumaHazuki> ...shit, i get it. he's afraid that the "secret police" will stop being on his side, isn't he? that explains the assumptions he makes about his opponents
[15:16:05] <c0lo> bi = a special kind of bureaucrats. bureaucrats are never on anyone side (and that's the best case scenario), except when they are on their own side (and that's the worst case scenario).

[15:16:20] <SedBot> <c0lo> fbi = a special kind of bureaucrats. bureaucrats are never on anyone side (and that's the best case scenario), except when they are on their own side (and that's the worst case scenario).
[15:17:31] <AzumaHazuki> they are by definition conservative, if only in the sense of inertia and maintaining the status quo
[15:18:02] <c0lo> So? What's the relevance?
[15:18:58] <c0lo> They don't have an overlapping interest with what the US call "political conservatives".
[15:20:21] <c0lo> If taken in the proper sense, the political conservatives will try to cut into fbi's budget.
