On Coronation Street, "Devendra" is a man's name. Is that true here as well? Sounds like it.

Corrie's Devendra is not a Spanish speaker, though. And everyone calls him "Dev".

Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 3:20pm Ike:

Caryn, for some reason, the word "bitch" does not run afoul of the authorities, at least not in the last 20-25 years or so. You have to head into "shit" or "fuck" or the nuclear-level C-word (the one that Brits throw around recklessly to our ears) to get their attention.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 3:20pm rrg:

"Homoeroticism" means "self-love", right? I mean, looking at the Greek roots and all that.

Considering that Akhenaten had at least 4 wives, I think Nefertiti was used to him hanging out with other women from time to time. As long as she was number 1 wife, she didn't really mind.

Same old story. It's only an outrage when the other guy (not "my guy") is doing it.
Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 4:57pm Caryn:

@Droll: incompetence in many authorities wouldn't reassure me (except in the sense that they make vast conspiracies way less likely to occur - at least successfully), but when the point of a company in many ways is to delve into your data to try and sell you stuff and they fail at it miserably? Then it's a delight.

Well worth checking out talks by William Binney & Thomas Drake on youtube - dubya era whistleblowers, the move towards mass collection of telecom/net data was happening even before 9/11,

The kicker is, the public can't be roused to do anything about it, game over.

Caryn, The only "analysis" you see at FB is on behalf of deodorant, insurance and car companies, which is hardly representative of the information FB collects, mines, re-mines, re-re-mines, and sells to others to mine. Even if they suck today, they'll get better and they'll have more information by then, too. You do not have any say in the control of the records they keep on you, what they're used for, or how long they're kept.

Mark my words: In the very near future all commercial telecommunications will be operated and paid for by advertising companies. Google is already in the phone business, and they already transcribe phone messages. In the future, they will offer free phone service and pay for it by listening in on your conversation and sending you ads about your conversation topics later.

I think I see what Droll is saying. The government collecting data is there ostensbily to protect us, but it might be abused. Corporatism is there to specifically exploit us, it has no benefit to us, it's a vampire.

Avatar Wed. 6/12/13 5:14pm Caryn:

@Droll: true, but I guess speaking a relatively obscure language and being poor as dirt, I'm less concerned about those matters than you might be. "Yeah, sure, spend your time and money trying to sell me stuff! Doesn't matter, since I can't afford it anyway."

@Laura L: yeah, I think if the kitten really has only one functioning head, and the other is more just for appearances, it stands a better chance at survival. With two functioning faces, feeding, brain function and such become problematic. Although the famous adult one has two functioning faces.

A co-worker today told me about his days as a telemarketer, and how they would get so bored with the job, they'd start making comedic calls with fake names. (Using their mobile phones, not the headsets, to avoid having the calls recorded.) And how they'd especially look forward to Friday afternoons, when the bosses would go home early, and they could goof off on the phone very freely.
