What They Said: 2008 Election vs. 2016 Election

2008 Barack Obama:
Hillary Clinton will say anything and do nothing. I don’t want Bush-Cheney lite. I want a fundamental change.

2008 Hillary Clinton:
Obama doesn’t love guns like I do. I’m a pro-gun churchgoer. I still am, even after I had to run from invisible sniper fire. Obama just doesn’t know how to win over hard-working Americans—you know, white people.

2008 Donald Trump:
Obama can’t be worse than Bush.

2008 Bernie Sanders:
The middle class has really been under assault. The top 0.1 percent now earn more money than the bottom 50 percent of Americans, and the top 1 percent own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent.

2016 Barack Obama:
I’m with her.

2008 Hillary Clinton:
I am here to tell you I will use every single minute of every day, if I’m fortunate to be your president, looking for ways to save lives so we can change the gun culture. I’m just telling you the truth. I’ve always tried to tell the truth.

2016 Donald Trump:
Obama is the worst president in U.S. history! Oh, well! Let’s just see how many people want to burn it all to the ground. We have the best fire. We love our gasoline, don’t we?

2016 Bernie Sanders:
There is no justice when the top 1/10th of 1 percent—not 1 percent—the top 1/10th of 1 percent today in America owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent.

The Last Thing (Google Knows) I Searched for on YouTube

Well, I finally figured out where to go in Google’s account settings to delete old YouTube search history. Some time ago, I’d already “paused” the recording of my searches. I just hadn’t figured out how to erase the old junk.

Turns out this was the last thing Google logged for me on YouTube:

Glad to see I stick to the educational stuff.

Oh, and did you know there are Gremlins 3 rumors? Because we really need a sequel to Gremlins 2, I guess.

Watch Boston Dynamics Bully a Robot

Some thoughts:

  • I am on the robot’s side.
  • This kind of thing is gonna come back to bite us when robots want rights—and know our legal systems better than we do.
  • Your job is on a hit list, lol. Probably several.
  • QR codes seem strangely symbolic after playing The Talos Principle​.
  • Robots. Such cool. Wow.
