    regarding the search engines, i remember in google we could use the '-' for example '-disney' to remove ocurrences with 'disney'

    10:10 because the Internet is for lab rats.
    How do big corps make money? Feed the rats – feed them sugar, feed them fat, feed them THC and alcohol, fast food, salty and convenient high calorie snacks. What about tech companies? Shorten their attention spans and feed them brain-sugar, 6-second memes, Kylie's breasts… it all comes down to ONE simple concept: MORE DOPAMINE = MORE MONEY and therefore more dopamine for the executives, thus, MORE DOPAMINE,users = MORE MONEY,corps = MORE DOPAMINE,execs.
    As dopamine levels rise in the brain, the more dopamine is required to produce the desired effects (motivation, desire, rewards) due to our natural tolerance and equilibrium mechanisms.
    AI, search ranking algorithms, data engines, etc are being tuned to respond to how people use the Internet, and people are being tuned to pursue the release of more dopamine online, so both people and the money/dopamine-based algorithms are in a feedback loop that is leading to a big bucket of shit at an exponential rate.
    Lab rats who get their dopamine from other sources, like you and I, are out of the feedback loop just watching in amazement as the Internet and its users begin to go supernova and collapse under their own weight, powered by their hunger for each other, forming a black hole that will begin to suck dopamine out of anyone who gets too close.

    you shouldn't even answer to this kind of dummy comments… the problem with this type of guys is that they don't really know the heavy history that goes behind the word "hacking", hacking is not getting into your ex gf Facebook.. or even jail-breaking into something, hacking is "making something work the way you want even if it wasn't intended to work that way."… If you find a way to time travel for example, that's hacking!

    Online botnets have been hacking away at search algorithms for years. The Coronavirus subreddit is absolute horseshit, and I'm sure you understand, for a site like Reddit to spew such dog shit is worse than ignorant.

    It's malicious, right? Like social media is being malicious rn. It's botnets. They've been working so hard and so long to spread disinformation that the fucks are like plastic. They're everywhere. Since they own the means by which popularity spreads via social media, all they have to do is modify the message to modify the information pipeline between search and source.

    The first page of Google is horseshit. The shopping links are horseshit. The images are horseshit ( "Make this the first image to appear on the top when you type 'monkey' HAHHAQHAHAHA!" ) Media focused on SEO optimization to appear quickly, Google hosts media outlets started since the election on their first page. Same with /r/TheDonald. It's all been shit for years.

    You were looking for graphs extrapolating spread to the end. Most mathematical models estimating spread are based on SIR model of epidemiology . It takes into account susceptible, infectious and recovered persons. You can control the exponential curve by by changing spread variable adn recovery variable. This numberphile video explains it

    The following pieces of information are very related to geopolitics and the ancient scriptures and will be able to prove the genetic experiments carried out along a very long time on humans as well as on many other living creatures by the fallen angels and the nephilim. In tunnels and underground bases many genetic experiments have been secretly done. The geoglyphs of the Black Desert are dated approximately 8,500 years old. The comprehend a huge area, mainly in Jordan, as well as in the neighboring countries. They are made with stones of basalt in order that they can last for a very long time and the wind and the sand of the desert neither cover nor erase them. They can only be seen from outer space through satellites and high altitudes. Archaeologists don't exactly know nowadays what they represent. According to a researcher these ruins really represent embryos of several species in different stages of development and will be able to shed light on the origin of the human being and our planet. When it will be officially confirmed by biologists, this discovery will constitute an important reason for disclosure and make a big shift in the current system and geopolitical order. and the video's translation (10 minutes):

    Maybe you can look at the differences in clinical features and link them wirh changes in the RNA. For example i know 4 of the 7 coronaviruses can cause Anosmie. It looks like the new one also causes this but i haven‘t found anything, that shows this was a feature by SARS, MERS. It‘s also known, that other typical cold-viruses, like the Rhinovirus can cause this too.

I said last night “The death of Elisa Lam”… she died under mysterious circumstances and there is a creepy video of her before she died. Acting very strange.

People in the chat will be like little detectives finding evidence and sharing it.

    You do not want specifically at home corona virus test machine, you want a machine that is able to sequence DNA/RNA, combined with some service that looks for matches in a virus database.

    bio is probably very hackable once you make it affordable and easy for people to actually sequence stuff.

    Wow. As a student currently doing research in NLP this is very helpful seeing your strategy for research. I am realizing that there is some low hanging fruit that would make me a lot more effective. I think that goes back to your philosophy on hacking, and people’s misconceptions about what it is. Anyone can teach how to code. Coding is easy. In very simple terms, what your doing is showing people your strategy for taking information, and attempting to do useful things with it, irrespective of the domain. Very cool.
