I- I didn't think I could ever consider a joke "too meta" and this isn't it, but it made me reconsider my position for sure,

This assumes I read graphs linearly left-to-right, instead of going towards the more interesting bits (like an annotation at a local minimum) first

Here was a guy who, it seemed to me, really felt like he had gotten most of the things out of life he was going to. Also, damn right button image.

281 Alleged Email Scammers Arrested In Massive Global Sweep

1 Comment
The Department of Justice today announced the arrest of 281 suspects in connection with email scams and wire transfer fraud. The action is the biggest of its kind yet against this type of digital scammer, and is a strong symbol of law enforcement's sense of urgency in trying to contain a rapidly growing threat. Wired reports: You're familiar with crimes like this, even if you don't know them by their proper name of "business email compromise" schemes. It involves the coordinated crafting of compelling scam emails that trick employees or vulnerable individuals into sending money, then using strategic mules to wire the funds back to the perpetrators. Such scams have ballooned in recent years, costing victims tens of billions of dollars over time. The DOJ said the new round of arrests took four months to carry out across 10 countries, and resulted in the seizure of almost $3.7 million. Tuesday's law enforcement initiative, dubbed Operation reWired, involved extensive international coordination to make 167 arrests in Nigeria, 74 in the United States, 18 in Turkey, and 15 in Ghana. The remainder took place in France, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom. Research and law enforcement investigations have shown that a large proportion of all email scamming originates in West Africa, specifically Nigeria, but the scams have spread, partly because some West African actors have moved around the world. The new arrest of 281 suspects involved global coordination among law enforcement agencies. In the U.S. alone, Operation reWired involved the DOJ, the Department of Homeland Security, the Treasury, the State Department, and the Postal Inspection Service.

Honestly, I like to think of most (read: NOT ALL) of these scams as wealth redistribution.

I know language changes, so I shouldn't be surprised, but I wonder how long people have been using subconscious and unconscious interchangeably...

[img title] i will say this about being online: so many people have truly committed to their bits

[mailto subject] the earth isn't flat, but it IS a white featureless void

People keep trying to come up with reasons that we should worry about the magnetic field collapsing or reversing, but honestly I think it's fine. Whatever minor problems it causes will be made up for by the mid-latitude auroras.
