Re: A hand in the till always causes problems … leading to bodies
The difference between these amateurs and pros is that the pros know when to stop for the most part, balancing maximum compensation against the need to keep the party going.
A good, if somewhat old, read is the book “The Best Way To Rob a Bank Is To Own One”. …. martinusher
SBF/FTX appear to have read and believed that good old read, “The Best Way To Rob a Bank Is To Own One” ……. https://forums.theregister.com/forum/all/2022/11/24/amazon_ftx_mini_series/#c_4574719 ….. and owned/bought into one, the Farmington State Bank.
And, martinusher, it may also be the sort of play which the UKGBNI Conservatives are desperate to prevent being outed as a means they have used to stealthily transfer and lose ten/hundreds of millions of pounds sterling to special friends, who may even also be family, with their own version of the laundering service via the newly created British Business Bank ….. which they, Conservative and Unionist Party members of Government are apparently refusing to answer legitimate questions from Parliament about regarding loans expedited recently during the long and lingering Covid scamdemic? ‽
Who’d have a thought it …… a nest of vipers and right dodgy money exchangers hiding in plain sight and playing leading stately politician from right in the centre of the City and at the heart of Palace of Westminster? Revolutionary public uprisings and military coups d’état have resulted from the likes of less for can you imagine the leverage that can be brought to bear and/or the leverage that can bought not to bear on systems so compromised and catastrophically weakened and vulnerable to multiple novel vector private and pirate sector attacks/almighty skirmishes.

Demented is as demented does.
However, from elsewhere, another completely different view …….
Yet another boondoggle to deliver debt and destruction to all foolish and crazy enough to desire its wares and fare. Is Uncle Sam retarded/content and intent to be permanently afflicted and effected by learning difficulties for such produce identifies one more as the warmonger to deny and vanquish rather than herald one as the peacemaker to support and laud? Are Uncle Sams totally blind to that see?
Or is certifiably mad and psychotically dangerous the more accurate diagnosis, with terminally long secure confinement in the lunatic asylum the only answer to deal with such tendencies/activities?

Re: Wake up world!
To understand your current situation and existence, in order to be able to arm and free yourself from their confines and tribulations whilst also being able to “stick it to the man” if you so desire, understanding and accepting as gospel what you can read of global command and unilateral control here ….. https://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/12/02/we-are-trapped-in-a-truman-show-directed-by-psychopaths/ …… will be time very well spent if you really want to know how everything is marshalled around you.
You will certainly never ever be able to do anything about everything if you choose to remain ignorant of such arrogant things so take heed and follow what is free sound advice which will definitely not hinder you and most likely will always assist you for the rest of your life.
And you don’t get much of that sort of help for free nowadays, do you.

Just Brilliant …. Morons’R’Us on the Road to Nowhere Good and Great
From the article
At an estimated acquisition cost of somewhere between $692 million and $752 million ($550 million in FY 2010) per plane …. Chillihead666
So, Chillihead666, based upon the well known history of military contract estimates, at least a trillion dollars [$1000,000,000] per plane is much more likely to be the boondoggle cost? And for something which all hope will never actually need to fly* and deliver a MAD payload guaranteeing amongst other things also its paymasters’ own annihilation.
What a fantastic masterplan. Absolute genius. Talk of all of those bridges to nowhere for sale pale into insignificance with the advent and introduction of that simple latest military industrial complex move, which one has to admit, y’all were presidentially advised to beware of and look out for quite some time ago, in a speech of less than 10 minutes, on January 17, 1961 ……… https://www.archives.gov/milestone-documents/president-dwight-d-eisenhowers-farewell-address …… with this short extract giving you the full flavour of the whole speech …
A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be might, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction. . . . American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. . . . This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. . . .Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. . . . In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. ……The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
* Okay, I know it is supposed to next generation stealthy, but has anyone captured it actually flying yet? A video would be nice. One surely doesn’t want anyone realising …..Oh no, not another Spruce Goose/BAC TSR-2 type fiasco?

Re: The great mistake
“ChatGPT is, unfortunately, plagued by the same fundamental issues affecting all current language models: It doesn’t know what it’s talking about.”
This is probably the insuperable problem that will plague machine language systems for ever. It takes lots of time, exposure, and (most importantly) real world context for humans to develop understanding of speech. It’s this real world context that results in speech (and even ideas) making sense. In its absence, there’s no real meaning, just like the “brain in a jar” of the movies couldn’t really operate. Speech evolved primarily as a tool for bodily survival. Trawling word associations from texts is not even a close replica of that. ….. Mike 137
To think that humans have overcome their own similar problems with language talking about things of which they know nothing of value and precious little else, whenever their worlds are full to overflowing with such nonsense, is that which has them constantly in conflict with themselves and others, both at home and away foreign, in alien lands/other time zones.
