Music + News = Bogative

Curry's Law

Proof:

Music can only convey emotion to listeners, not useful information in a journalistic sense.

Therefore music can only add emotion to a news story; it cannot add any facts or understanding.

Therefore music is only included in a news story when its producer wants the news consumer to FEEL A CERTAIN WAY ABOUT THE SUBJECT!

Therefore it is a maxim not just a heuristic.

If BBC news story has background music, it's propaganda.

@adam is in 2014 form in this episode!

I think it's a good heuristic for all mass media in general, not just a hereditary monarch's state media.

"Instagram has been fine-tuned for the Adderal mind"

Now that's what I'm fucking talking about @adam!!! Fuck yes, classic No Agenda mindblower!

So obviously true, but never realized it.

I've been in the water at the location of SD shark attack for literally tens of thousands of hours. First 30yrs of my life that was my default place to surf.

I never saw a GWS and I still believe it is not a sharky area because no deep water nearby, no seal/sea lion rookery.

It was definitely a GWS even though no confirmation. Bite exposed ball/socket of shoulder, then it chased them in.

Here's video. The attack occurs within 5 seconds of start. You can only see them react.

I am searching for shower stalls and somehow the algo gives me a video of the Ford woman. Go fuck yourself Google.

Protip:

Watch the live webcam for Wedge in Newport Beach on Surfline.com on Sunday.

It will look something like this thanks to my girl Rosa.

About 2 months ago @adam was "skeptical" of a hurricane hitting Southern California. Remnants of Cat 4 Hurricane Rosa will likely hit San Diego. Up to a month ago, the same storm would not have weakened at all before hitting SD because the water was no cooler than 78 degrees anywhere between SoCal and the tropics. Now it's back to just slightly warmer than normal, which is too cold to sustain a hurricane. 1-2 months ago this map was orange/red in SoCal - plenty warm for a hurricane.

The ONLY bullshit part of SoCal hurricane story was blaming climate change. It is impossible to say what the cause of the warm Eastern North Pacific this year, but it is HOT.

Normally 72 is the warmest the ocean gets in SD in summer, maybe for a week max. Some years it never hits 70.

It's been 72+ for months, hitting fucking 80(!!!) last week. Back down to 75

80 is warm enough to STRENGTHEN a hurricane. Plenty to sustain one.

PS a hurricane creamed SoCal in 1939, centered on Long Beach.

The benefits of "open" software are limited when restricted to closed hardware.

Any manufacturer can make their hearing aids use the Apple protocol. So yes, it's "open" if you own an iPhone. But most people on earth don't own iPhones.

Google published their protocol and future Android versions natively support it. Therefore any hearing aid manufacturer can make hearing aids that connect to any manufacturer's Android phone (running the new Android version).

What would @adam suggest as an alternative to 'client' when a supervisor makes an informal but public statement directly addressing underling social workers who "work with" the homeless?

In a jurisdiction that has banned capital punishment except for serious grammar crimes?

More concise + accurate (if not precise) than "client?"

How does "godforsaken pieces of feces who are currently experiencing homelessness, a mental disorder and/or acute macncheese toxicity" sound? It's not racist anyway.

is this boat the listener in San Jose del Cabo? If so, the trip North will not be THAT miserable 🤔

Dear @adam

Donald Fucking Trump called the policy in question "The Muslim Ban"

Cognitive dissonance over criticism of Daddy is really not a good look

Dear @adam

Remember how one of your reasons for not accepting value in the form of bitcoin was "it's too hard to deal with because it's not taxed as income"?

First, that's not true. But even if it were true, then why were you happy to receive gold bullion?

Bullion is taxed differently, so you should scotch tape it to a postcard and send it back.

PS 50% of bitcoin is never lost in transit, and it always arrives at printed address before you would get home from mailing gold at post office.

Shout out to the listener in the beautiful Caribbean port of San Jose del Cabo. Been here a month surfing my arms off. Waves literally never under head high since I got here June 3, crazy. And counting.

I doubt he will see this, but if anyone knows him post an email for him.

The northbound trip up west Baja is notoriously miserable. Other than Panama Canal it's the defining feature of the trip. Guaranteed strong headwinds most of the way. Choppy, wet, cold miserable for a week+.

Need crew?

@adam that woman ranting about generic drugs and the evils of manufacturing drugs overseas is a shill for the pharmaceutical industry. gee why would Big Pharma want an embargo on imports of drugs?

you're delusional if you think the FDA does anything to keep you safe. Seriously, try and find one instance of the FDA saving one single life ever. I dare you. They portray themseles as experts. They know nothing. They approve dangerous drugs and stall effective ones.

You sound like Lou Dobbs

Well I made it back on board for four or five shows, but it's no different than watching Fox News anymore.

Mainstream media like No Agenda won't hardly touch the fact that Bibi went on TV with a preposterous story, and Trump used this because he wants to make Obama look weak.

Trump is Bibi's Bottom Bitch and he doesn't even know it. Just tell him he's a big man with giant penis and Trump will do anything.

The observation that bullshit service animal exceptions to urban cultural norms are at an all time high is true enough.

It is does not represent a sinister plot to make America die off and squander its wealth on long term medical care for senior citizen rottweilers.

It is the natural expected result when two long term trends cross. American dog ownership rate in rural cultures is, I assume, fairly steady, but far more Americans than ever live in cities where dogs are not welcome. Do the math.
