HACK n. 1. Originally a quick job that produces what is needed, but not well. 2. The result of that job. 3. NEAT HACK: A clever technique. Also, a brilliant practical joke, where neatness is correlated with cleverness, harmlessness, and surprise value. Example: the Caltech Rose Bowl card display switch circa 1961. 4. REAL HACK: A crock (occasionally affectionate). v. 5. With "together", to throw something together so it will work. 6. To bear emotionally or physically. "I can't hack this heat!" 7. To work on something (typically a program). In specific sense: "What are you doing?" "I'm hacking TECO." In general sense: "What do you do around here?" "I hack TECO." (The former is time-immediate, the latter time-extended.) More generally, "I hack x" is roughly equivalent to "x is my bag". "I hack solid-state physics." 8. To pull a prank on. See definition 3 and HACKER (def #6). 9. v.i. To waste time (as opposed to TOOL). "Watcha up to?" "Oh, just hacking." 10. HACK UP (ON): To hack, but generally implies that the result is meanings 1-2. 11. HACK VALUE: Term used as the reason or motivation for expending effort toward a seemingly useless goal, the point being that the accomplished goal is a hack. For example, MacLISP has code to read and print roman numerals, which was installed purely for hack value. HAPPY HACKING: A farewell. HOW'S HACKING?: A friendly greeting among hackers. HACK HACK: A somewhat pointless but friendly comment, often used as a temporary farewell. [The word HACK doesn't really have 69 different meanings. In fact, HACK has only one meaning, an extremely subtle and profound one which defies articulation. Which connotation a given HACK-token has depends in similarly profound ways on the context. Similar comments apply to a couple other hacker jargon items, most notably RANDOM. - Agre]

HACKER [originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe] n. 1. A person who enjoys learning the details of programming systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary. 2. One who programs enthusiastically, or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming. 3. A person capable of appreciating hack value (q.v.). 4. A person who is good at programming quickly. Not everything a hacker produces is a hack. 5. An expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it; example: "A SAIL hacker". (Definitions 1 to 5 are correlated, and people who fit them congregate.) 6. A malicious or inquisitive meddler who tries to discover information by poking around. Hence "password hacker", "network hacker". - The Original Hacker's Dictionary
 

There will be no fixes to the environmental problem.

22 02 13 - 15:31

Our environmental problem is not caused by laws. It is caused by individuals. As long as you can buy whatever you want, and do whatever you want with it, the ecocide will continue.


I am posting this (and it is long) because I think our society needs a huge wake-up call.

As a shelter manager, I am going to share a little insight with you all - a view from the inside, if you will.
Maybe if you saw the life drain from a few sad, lost, confused eyes, you would change your mind about breeding and selling to people you don't even know - that puppy you just sold will most likely end up in my shelter when it's not a cute little puppy anymore.

How would you feel if you knew that there's about a 90% chance that dog will never walk out of the shelter it is going to be dumped at - purebred or not! About 50% of all of the dogs that are "owner surrenders" or "strays" that come into my shelter are purebred dogs.

No shortage of excuses
The most common excuses I hear are:

We are moving and we can't take our dog (or cat).
Really? Where are you moving to that doesn't allow pets?

The dog got bigger than we thought it would.
How big did you think a German Shepherd would get?

We don't have time for her.
Really? I work a 10-12 hour day and still have time for my 6 dogs!

She's tearing up our yard.
How about bringing her inside, making her a part of your family?

They always tell me:
We just don't want to have to stress about finding a place for her. We know she'll get adopted - she's a good dog. Odds are your pet won't get adopted, and how stressful do you think being in a shelter is?

Well, let me tell you. Dead pet walking!

Your pet has 72 hours to find a new family from the moment you drop it off, sometimes a little longer if the shelter isn't full and your dog manages to stay completely healthy.
If it sniffles, it dies.

Your pet will be confined to a small run / kennel in a room with about 25 other barking or crying animals. It will have to relieve itself where it eats and sleeps. It will be depressed and it will cry constantly for the family that abandoned it.
If your pet is lucky, I will have enough volunteers that day to take him / her for a walk. If I don't, your pet won't get any attention besides having a bowl of food slid under the kennel door and the waste sprayed out of its pen with a high-powered hose.
If your dog is big, black or any of the "bully" breeds (pit bull, rottweiler, mastiff, etc) it was pretty much dead when you walked it through the front door. Those dogs just don't get adopted.
If your dog doesn't get adopted within its 72 hours and the shelter is full, it will be destroyed.

If the shelter isn't full and your dog is good enough, and of a desirable enough breed, it may get a stay of execution, though not for long. Most pets get very kennel protective after about a week and are destroyed for showing aggression. Even the sweetest dogs will turn in this environment.
If your pet makes it over all of those hurdles, chances are it will get kennel cough or an upper respiratory infection and will be destroyed because shelters just don't have the funds to pay for even a $100 treatment.

The grim reaper
Here's a little euthanasia 101 for those of you that have never witnessed a perfectly healthy, scared animal being "put-down".
First, your pet will be taken from its kennel on a leash. They always look like they think they are going for a walk - happy, wagging their tails. That is, until they get to "The Room".

Every one of them freaks out and puts on the breaks when we get to the door. It must smell like death, or they can feel the sad souls that are left in there. It's strange, but it happens with every one of them. Your dog or cat will be restrained, held down by 1 or 2 vet techs (depending on their size and how freaked out they are). A euthanasia tech or a vet will start the process. They find a vein in the front leg and inject a lethal dose of the "pink stuff". Hopefully your pet doesn't panic from being restrained and jerk it's leg. I've seen the needles tear out of a leg and been covered with the resulting blood, and been deafened by the yelps and screams.

They all don't just "go to sleep" - sometimes they spasm for a while, gasp for air and defecate on themselves.
When it all ends, your pet's corpse will be stacked like firewood in a large freezer in the back, with all of the other animals that were killed, waiting to be picked up like garbage.

What happens next? Cremated? Taken to the dump? Rendered into pet food? You'll never know, and it probably won't even cross your mind. It was just an animal, and you can always buy another one, right?

Liberty, freedom and justice for all
I hope that those of you that have read this are bawling your eyes out and can't get the pictures out of your head. I do everyday on the way home from work. I hate my job, I hate that it exists and I hate that it will always be there unless people make some changes and realize that the lives you are affecting go much farther than the pets you dump at a shelter.

Between 9 and 11 MILLION animals die every year in shelters and only you can stop it. I do my best to save every life I can but rescues are always full, and there are more animals coming in everyday than there are homes.
My point to all of this is DON'T BREED OR BUY WHILE SHELTER PETS DIE!

Hate me if you want to - the truth hurts and reality is what it is.
I just hope I maybe changed one person's mind about breeding their dog, taking their loving pet to a shelter, or buying a dog. I hope that someone will walk into my shelter and say "I saw this thing on craigslist and it made me want to adopt".
That would make it all worth it."
**PERSON posting this did not write this letter. I am posting this letter under as many cities and states I can in craigslist to encourage people to adopt from a shelter. I volunteer at the Bainbridge/Decatur Humane Shelter. The lady that runs that shelter is amazing. She has very few resources and has given her life's blood to run this shelter the best she can. If this letter touches you, please consider donating just a dollar or two to this shelter directly. MORE IMPORTANT: if you want to adopt please consider adopting from her shelter. They often have specials on dogs that have been there a long time, some are even free! Here is the address and phone number to this shelter: 1250 Cox Avenue, Bainbridge, GA 39819
P. 0. Box 429, Bainbridge, GA 39818
Phone (229) 246-0101 - Found on Craigsfail



Even though this retelling is somewhat dramatic, the truth is the same: buy dog, dump dog. Dog goes to die alone. Buy SUV, drive SUV. Buy junk food, throw trash on the road. Buy giant house, live off debt, use tons of power and trash the place when it's foreclosed. They tear it down. Mountains of waste from the voids of human souls.

Are they all walking zombies?

20 02 13 - 18:00

Liberals, consumerists, hipsters, socialites: those who conform to the dying order. These are they who fear the task before us if we want a civilization back, and have instead decided to join the great weight of the decay. Their souls are weak and their will is compromised. They are zombies, forever demanding more new delights and more new purchases, yet never fulfilled. They have no purpose. Like rogue cells, they form tumors and drain life from the civilization organism.

All you hippies better start to face reality,
All your far fetched dreams of anarchy,
Better start to see things the way they are,
Cause the way things
Are going they won't be goin' far.

World peace can't be done.
It just can't exist.
World peace can't be done.
Anarchy's a mess.

Things are gettin hectic.
It's all gonna end.
You don't know what's waitin' up around the bend.
Open your eyes, perhaps you'll realize.
If aids don't get ya then the warheads will.

CAUS founder speaks!

The architects of the recent flier assaults on Crowdism have posted an interview here:

 

ANUS invades Canada, crushes Crowdist hopes

07 02 13 - 19:32

In opposition to global Crowdism and its manifestation in consumerism and a totalitarian society based on socialization, an offshoot of the American Nihilist Underground Society (ANUS) attacked a pacifistic Canadian university with propaganda against social control.

The group calling itself "Citizens Against Utilitarian Socialization" struck in the early hours of the morning by distributing flyers and in multiple locations on the slumbering campus. Despite the unspoken policy of Canadian universities that no reality-based organizations or opinions can stand, because they clash with the social control opinion that sensations and subjective feelings are more real than reality itself, the activist group corrupted the facade of universalism right under the noses of the authoritarians themselves.

Angry students gathered to protest the assault on their sacred illusions. "How dare they come in here and criticize us? We're fighting for freedom for the whole world, whether it wants it or not. We bring enlightenment and compassion because we are educated. What kind of an ignorant, primal, inbred, bigoted and socially backward person would ever oppose us?" said Christy Heddington, twirling her dreadlocks while fingering a crisp copy of Das Kapital.

The university is reported mobilizing a "crisis team" of grief couselors, diversity advisers, sexual therapists, Leninist economists, socialist theorists, emo kids, television connoisseurs, McDonald's and Coca-Cola executives, mystery shoppers and postmodern thinkers to counteract the "wave of hatred and ambiguity that has enveloped our community. Local news stations have stationed vans at the school entrance in case any disillusioned students upon suddenly realizing that their society has taken a wrong path to self-destruction, will then commit suicide in emotional agony.

"This is a glorious day for our revolution against the Revolution," said ANUS psychic commando Vijay Prozak. "Not only have our enemies seen that their facade of universal acceptance of permissiveness and lack of standards and values is false, but we have also forced them into logical contradiction as they object to our interpretation of freedom, truth, justice and compassion in more realistic ways than they have."

According to Prozak, modernity is a giant sidestep of reality and a path to doom for the human species. "Our ideas are based on the consequences of actions, and studying reality to pick optimal choices," he said. "Crowdists are based on the idea that every individual wants to escape reality and be responsible only to their own pleasures, so Crowdists form a political movement around the idea that everyone gets that choice. However, if even one person points out that their ideas are illogical and contradict reality, or even worse that they lead inevitably to misery, the Crowdists lose their image of being moral and universally accepted."

As a candlelight vigil began for the community split by disagreement with their definition of "hatred" and "love," a vast wail of existential despair rose from the campus. Soon the only motion was from ANUS flyers flapping in the breeze as the students, faculty and staff descended into a moral and emotional abyss from which no escape is possible.

 

World turned upside down

04 02 13 - 17:56

From an odd source:
Think back to when your consciousness was once asleep inside you. You didn't have the knowing to see the sanity behind what you once thought was insanity. I've found myself "being a nobody" in the eyes of my family, and they think I have lost the plot. Even the fact that I don't respond to their pointless drama these days means to them that I'm emotionally withdrawn and have "mental issues". But it's really the complete opposite, they just can't see the truth whilst they sleep
