Internet as linked human consciousness


Sound like something out of a science fiction movie, where if one alien finds out something, then they all know.

Could it be the same for us, not in the form of consciousness, but in the form of knowledge.

If we want to know anything about the world we live in or a description of advanced mathematics then we “Google it” sites like www.wikipedia.comprovide a wealth of information for us.

Personally I use the linked consciousness to gain insight on almost anything, I like to think that I am similar to the pretender.

Quoted from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115320/

“A specially gifted man, with the ability to instantly master any skill, escapes from a secret agency and travels the country taking on a different jobs and helping strangers.”

Why not use this to our ability, so far I have learned so many skills they are to vast to mention. With just a high school diploma I have learned to program, create websites, Photoshop, know my way around a car engine, install satellite TV, Bed room cupboards how a LCD TV works, how to turn a normal TV into a smart TV, connect almost anything to a Wi-Fi network.

If i wanted to know how to lets say fix a track pad on a Blackberry I could learn that too

Ok lets not fail to mention there is a lot of bullshit on the web, where you can completely make an asshole of your self finding a site that some crack pot has created,feeding the wrong info. but a bit of common sense has to be used.

Have you had to settle an argument using Google ?

We have become publishers, info addicts, we post our private info on sites like Facebook. we watch all funny videos on YouTube or post parts of our lives on the net, does that not mean that if everybody online wanted to know

Tired Of Classic Covers


I must be honest I am getting a little agitated by the amount of songs that have been covered. If the song is left in its original form then that’s ok, such as one direction doing Blondie’s song “one way or another”

Kept in its original format it could be as good if not better that the classic version

What I do have a problem is when you take a good song and add in some bull shit rap. add in rapping about HO’S and bitches. and to add in a few swear words, is supposed to add some “flavour to it”

 

In all fairness the writer of the lyrics does deserve to make royalties on the song, but there should be an agreement that the song does not change. for example I am a Depeche Mode Fan, so I’ll have no problem with a band such as fun doing covers on that. Boyzone, and westlife did do justice to the songs they covered.

Is this way of saying that there is no other form of music than Rap, Hipop?

I don’t really want to hear songs that insult woman calling them HO’S, Bitches and how they are going to screw them. What worse that the woman who sing this rubbish are scantily clad and mostly going on about being shagged.

Given that this all this rubbish has on all the main stream radio stations, I have now switched over to a radio station where they play classics.

In Johannesburg the radio station 947 Highveld stereo, was in the past a nice classic radio station, how ever was bought over by a large media corporation. Initially they kept to the format of the previous station, however have gone main stream. Which in essences was a good thing as the breakfast show was brilliantly handled by a very experiences and funny host. How ever the have managed to get rid of most of the good DJ’s so we now have a squeaky voiced DJ on the breakfast show, who thinks that pranking people and really getting them angry is good fun. Thus causing me to move over to another station. where they still think that artists such as Billy Joel, Blondie, Michael Jackson and quite a few the catch phrase the use is the hits from the 80’s, 90’s and now. so we have quite an array of good music. the playlist does not include people singing about shagging or being shagged.

Well Said


This is a post Bill Cosby posted on Facebook….

“Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”
I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for when I was doing my National Service, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; Muslims burning schools for girls; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and Madrasa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I’m really tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20′s be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in. There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.

“I’m 83 and I’m tired. If you don’t agree you are part of the problem!”                                  

                                         

 

I think this is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time

This story has gripped me both emotively and physically, I have been against this kind of bullshit for a while now. So I have decide to be a man for a change and stand up.

I have a 15 year old daughter and believe me I would use all my internet skills and knowledge to find these kind of people. this ignorant fucks who think that terrorising a child almost half their age shows a lot of issues, what scares me this guy had a girlfriend and perhaps kids too (probably does, and has left piles of single mom’s in his wake.

I hope you see this and load this full of comments, and I don’t give a shit if you want to try your hand at doing this kind of thing to me. I have been bullied and just come out of a marriage of 16 years of being emotionally abused as well a verbally. Don’t you dare say that Amanda bought this on her self, it seems her parents are divorced and that on its own does bring in a certain type of depression, and believe me you will do almost anything to get rid of the anxiety. the only problem is that your actions in that state causes you to get more anxious because of the consequence of the action.

Cyber bulling is an absolute scourge on our society and I can class it along the lines of a disease. When I was at school and yes I was bullied, but it was done face to face and once you got the courage and support you could face them and react how you should.

However cyber bulling is a silent killer if I may because your bully could be of any age any gender and any where in the world.

my email address is mysociallife@webmail.co.za, please parents if you think you child is being bullied online I would like to investigate it. also if you can let expose these idiot and use this blog to name and shame those who do this all I need is their nick names and we can create a list of the arseholes.

But there is some good that came of this

Anonymous outs bully they claim drove Amanda Todd to suicide, mum says leave her family alone

UPDATE: The mother of the man accused online of bullying Amanda Todd before her suicide has told the public to leave her son alone.

Lets harass this bastard to suicide

Hacker group Anonymous released personal details of the man it claims posted topless pictures of a 15-year-old girl online and harassed her so mercilessly she committed suicide.

The leak prompted a vigilante internet campaign to bring the accused harasser to justice, which his mother claims is causing the family extreme grief.

Amanda Todd, from Vancouver, Canada, was found hanged in her home on October 10, weeks after she uploaded a video to YouTube that describes – via a series of note cards – her treatment at the hands of a cyber bully.

Anonymous, the world’s largest hacking group, united by anti-censorship ideals, tracked and exposed the man who allegedly posted the photographs and harassed the teenager via Facebook.

In a video posted to YouTube , a figure in a mask and with his voice disguised claims Anonymous discovered a connection between a 30-year-old man from British Columbia and Amanda.

“We Are Anonymous. We Are Legion. We Do Not Forgive. We Do Not Forget,” they warn, signing off “Expect us”.

Why Anonymous is playing a whole different ballgame

The hacking group, voted one of Time Magazine‘s most influential people in 2012, back their claims by leaking personal information including his date of birth and address on a pastebin.com  page.

The leak also seems to link the exposed man’s digital footprint directly to Amanda Todd, including a Google map of his house address, posts on web forums associated with child pornography and chat requests.

Despite this, there is still no concrete evidence against the alleged offender and local police say innuendo and rumours are slowing down the investigation.

Sergeant Peter Thiessen from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement they are dealing with thousands of tips. He also warned people to not donate to sites purporting to raise funds in memory of Amanda.

“One of our big challenges right now, is false information that is being spread by people who appear to be trying to use Amanda’s story to do harm or make a profit,” he said in the statement.

He believed “the internet and social media were central to Amanda’s story and they are central to the investigation” but dismissed the Anonymous leak as an “unfounded allegation”.

An alleged court document shows child-sex charges of a man with the same surname as the exposed man

Using the leaked information, CTV News earlier tracked down a man attending court in relation to child-related sex offences, with reportedly the same surname as the man exposed by Anonymous.

The man told CTV News he was friends with Amanda Todd whom he had met online through her singing videos, but that the accusations against him were incorrect and he was not one of her tormentors.

He instead claims it is a case of mistaken identity and he had contacted her to help as he “was a known hacker”, The Vancouver Sun reports.

The man, who arrived at court in a black hoodie, says he passed on information to police about Amanda’s harasser. He told the Vancouver Sun the man responsible is actually a 26-year-old living in New York using the online alias of Viper.

His mother has thrown her support behind her son, who has been charged with the sexual assault of a minor.

“Yeah, he has issues, like we all do — but he’s not a creepy street hoodlum doing crime,” she told Postmedia News.

CTV News

She asked the public to leave them alone, as the “lynch mob” mentality was causing her family pain.

“It’s really dangerous to throw out names when you don’t know,” his mum said, sobbing.

“This is doing more harm than good.”

She backs the story about her son speaking to police in regards to a New York man. She claims when he was about 14 years old he sent authorities the names of individuals who visited a website containing photos of young children.

His mother is concerned the people behind the Anonymous leak may be people he had outed in his past seeking retribution.

“Half the stuff can be doctored,” she said.

The rapid spread of the man’s unconfirmed identity on the internet has also led to a number of hate pages being established online including Facebook pages calling for his death.

Information provided by Anonymous on the pastebin page outlined his association with Reddit and particularly a seedy subreddit called jailbait, which was moderated by Violentacrez, who was exposed this week byGawker as the “world’s worst internet troll”.

The message board is for users to post sexual photographs of teenage girls. Motley News reported the alleged offender scrubbed all the images he had uploaded to the jailbait website as soon as he was exposed.

Forums and websites are now seething with hatred directed at a pedophile they believe is responsible for Amanda’s suicide.

In another sick twist, the vile attacks which led to Todd’s death have continued with Facebook memorial pages being defaced with cruel jibes and a topless photo of her being circulated online.

The horrible images began to litter the RIP Amanda Todd page , which has received hundreds of thousands of ‘likes’, including a picture of a bottle of bleach and the caption “it’s to die for”, referencing an earlier suicide attempt.

A month before her death, the Canadian teen outlined her three-year bullying ordeal in a silent YouTube video titled “My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm” using handwritten notes.

She described the agony she felt after a troll posted a topless photo of her online and sent it to her family, friends and classmates.

Amanda Todd’s final video

A teenager’s final video blog before she committed suicide after cyber bullying.

Amanda wrote in the video how the unidentified man pressured her into flashing her breasts on a webcam.

“In 7th grade, I would go with a friend on webcam to meet and talk to new people. Then I got called stunning, beautiful, perfect etc…then he wanted me to flash, so I did.”

A year later she received a Facebook message with a screenshot of her naked breasts, demanding she expose herself further or he would release the picture.

The photo was then sent around her school, causing Amanda to sink into a deep depression, using alcohol and drugs to attempt to ease the pain. She documented her downward spiral, including her need to change schools twice, in the YouTube video in an effort to warn others of the risks of online bullying.

“I can never get that photo back,” she wrote in the heartbreaking nine-minute video. (warning: graphic content)

“I have nobody. I need someone. My name is Amanda Todd.”

Her calls for help went unanswered and on Wednesday she took her life at her home in British Columbia, just weeks before her 16th birthday. The topless photo had resurfaced at her new school and her bully had made it his Facebook profile picture.

Her mother told The Vancouver Sun  she hoped Amanda’s video could help others.

“I think the video should be shared and used as an anti-bullying tool. That is what my daughter would have wanted.”
