Episode #199: Peanuts and the Singularity
Adrian is training an army of squirrels to defeat AI, Alex yells epithets at kindergartners for his own amusement, the Russian Civil War has begun, D*ckSantis debuts in tech disaster, Adrian and the Washington Post bite on fake congressman’s bait, Canada promotes suicide as solution to homelessness, the Epstein/Bill Gates/Red Sparrow affair, and do you sit or stand to drain the lizard?
Why I’m feeding squirrels to prepare for the Singularity.
The Russian Civil War has begun
Reports coming in from both sides that Russian rebel forces with the FoRL and RVC (Freedom of Russia Legion and Russian Volunteer Corps) have captured four small villages in Belgorod region near the Ukrainian border.

FoRL says they’re coming for Putin: Freedom Russia Legion ⬜🟦⬜: "Residents of Russia! We are Russians just like you. We are distinguished only by the fact that we no longer wanted to justify the actions of criminals in power and took up arms to defend our and your freedom." : r/FreedomofRussia
Evacuations have begun in Grayvoron and Belgorod in anticipation of rebel advance.
Initial unconfirmed reports of insurgent groups forming in the Urals and Siberia.
Unconfirmed reports that Russian freedom fighters have taken towns in Kursk and Bryansk Oblasts, apparently opening up at least 3 fronts in the civil war
We all knew this was coming
A United States Congressman actually said this unironically. These people rule over you.
“Nearly 25% of American students are in the bottom quartile in reading and the numbers are just as bad in math on standardized tests. What is the Biden administration doing about this crisis?”
(NOTE: This was satire and we fell for it. Fact checking fail.)
