            Let's hear your solutions. Keep throwing young Ukrainians at it and money ? The ladybird books you read should offer up something. . Last time I looked the US killed off quite a few leaders who didnt fit the bill. Or maybe it was on Movies@Dundrum . Why not kill Putin? Sure get Levic Harvic Oswaldic to do it and sure the yanks can deny everything. If you think there is nobody that cant be got then you are not 'real world ' connected You blame Putin but reckon adding years to the war is the way to go. .
            I only hope whoever shot the Slovak premier today triggers some hero into impaling Vlad.

              Putin, like Hitler, has to be faced down and militarily defeated. That's the solution. There is no alternative that doesn't end with even worse long term outcomes.

              Don't take it from me, take it from Tim Snyder.

                  It's better than the book, McGregor plays it well and the whole air of tweeness and suspension of disbelief works much better on the small screen than it does on the page.

                    He's killed them all. Look what he did to Navalny.

                      Waiting until all the eps are done and then I'll be in a position to judge this preposterous statement.

                        Slightly surprised you didn't suggest that one.
                        Ukraine is literally trying to fix this right now, due to US pressure. Up until they passed a new law a short while ago, it was a minimum of 27 years old you could be conscripted at, but with loads of loopholes. They've now started clamping down on this and reducing the age to 25.

                        Like the thing you are angsting about is:

                        - something the Western allies are actively pressuring Ukraine to do
                        - something Ukraine is now getting around to fixing

                        Its also a fairly obvious current flaw, if you are having to drag people out of one war zone to emergency march them to another war zone, it indicates that lack of trained soldiers is a real issue. It could well be too late to fix, as surely the training time is not quick to safely send new soldiers to the frontline.

                          I suspect, from various 'sources' that tend to be littered through the likes of CNN articles, that the US is quite frustrated with Zelenskky - despite generally admiring him. He seems to be too keen on these 'symbolic stances' around insignificant villages that end up wiping out loads of experienced soldiers, then overpromising what advances will be made, and not making critical decisions on things like staffing that are known to win wars. We're seeing the impact now. Last year, despite low Russian weapon stocks, and endless Ukrainian weaponry, they couldn't advance. Now they are on the cusp of losing significant territory. He needs to start listening to the US strategists: they know how to win wars.

                            I do realise all of this is within an overall envelope of how deeply unfair and tragic the whole thing is. But listening to the adults in the room seems like the first step in being able to defend the country.

                              It sure does feel like we are slowly walking into WW3.
                              This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
                              All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

                                Lets not forget that there are also tens of thousands of russians walking into their death every day too. Also at a huge cost to their regime. Except their regime gives less off a shit than Ukraines’ do. And i guarantee you 90% of those russian ‘soldiers’ want nothing to do with it in reality either.

                                  If Trump gets back in, he's surely going to cause chaos on the geopolitical front which is no good with so many situations on the edge.

                                    A Netflix adaptation of Tom Wolfe's satirical novel is another one that beats the book. Cracking TV show, just six short episodes that are well paced and pay attention to detail lightly unlike the way the book is stuffed with tangential detail.
                                    From what I can remember this is a fairly loose adaptation and as well as bringing it to the 2020's there is clearly an effort to make Daniels character look Trumpian, but it's a lot more fun than that sounds.
                                    There is something interesting about how literate and stylised it feels compared to what Wolfe's 'new journalism' was claiming to be, I always found him a hard read and this kind of production IMO fillets away all the bullshit and allows the characters, ideas and humor room to shine. In this you always know you are watching a novel. Daniels is good but the OTT southern accent is more annoying than comical. Superb soundtrack as well.

                                      It would likely be a continuation of his first administration's 'policy' (inverted commas as it was a shitshow)?
                                      • Hostility to his Latin American neighbours over immigration
                                      • Sucking up to his boss, Putin - bad news for Ukraine, Europe and NATO
                                      • Continued trade war posturing with China (who kinda deserve it)
                                      • Extreme pro-Israeli stance
                                      That said, he was a pretty inconsequential president in foreign policy terms as he was very much focused inward - probably reflecting the fact that he has no real interest in the wider world personally and a level of understanding of geopolitics that your average 12 year old would probably easily surpass.

                                        There's an internal Russian socio-economic factor too; all those being pressganged into the army and sent to die in a muddy field or the Mad Tsar are overwhelmingly from the poorest regions of Russia and\or from ethnic minorities. Hence there is very little internal dissent about their deaths.

                                          Sinn Fein getting whacked again in the polls and now level with FG (from being almost double their support not so long ago).

                                          I wonder how much of this based on immigration, would imagine most of it.

                                                    I broke my collar bone near the start of the year. I got the all clear a few weeks back from the physio to say I could get back to exercising whenever I wanted, working up to my normal routine. I had been in a very good habit of working out 3/5 times a week last year. I also really enjoyed it but now that I have fallen out of the routine the push to get back and start again seems mammoth. It is such a hard thing to get back to doing once you fall out of the habit.

                                                            They couldn’t exactly say they wanted to close the boarder and put back up check points to appease the anti immigrant cohort.

                                                            They will still get most of the far right/anti immigration votes on transfers when it comes to election day.

                                                              And still the market will buy these fake diamonds @ >$2600

                                                              Reality is irrelevant when the world is mostly populated by dumb marks with more money than sense.
                                                              If the market is so dumb you must be shorting the crap out of it?

                                                              IMO the title is a bit misleading since the bug was in the mev-boost library which isn't part of the ethereum protocol nor is it needed to validate blocks. As I understand, the "victims" were arbitrage bots that one could argue simply had their risk realized. I wonder if the brothers could have gotten away with it by just paying taxes.

                                                              Here is an in-depth post-mortem on the incident: - Post mortem: April 3rd, 2023 mev-boost relay incident and related timing issue - The Flashbots Ship - The Flashbots Collective

I got the all clear a few weeks back from the physio to say I could get back to exercising whenever I wanted, working up to my normal routine.

As someone mentioned in that y-combinator thread, the DOJ charging the act of exploiting a software bug for profit as wire fraud is bananas especially when this looks like a case of the front runners kind of being beaten at their own game.

                                                                          The thing that really stands out through is that the attack is so sophisticated in the technical knowledge required to carry it out and clean the money it is almost beyond belief that this is were they fell down. All that and they can't obfuscate their search history.

                                                                          So clever and yet so dumb.​

                                                                          "The brothers' online search history showed that they studied up and "took numerous steps to hide their ill-gotten gains," the DOJ alleged. These steps included "setting up shell companies and using multiple private cryptocurrency addresses and foreign cryptocurrency exchanges" that specifically did not rely on detailed "know your customer" (KYC) procedures.

                                                                          They also researched the "very crimes charged in the indictment," the DOJ said. Among search terms found in the brothers' history during the planning phase of the alleged scheme were phrases like "how to wash crypto" and "exchanges with no KYC." Later, seemingly attempting to prepare for any legal consequences from the scheme, the brothers allegedly searched for things like "top crypto lawyers," and "money laundering statute of limitations," and "does the United States extradite to [foreign country]."


                                                                          What are we backing in the 6.30?

                                                                          Edit - I actually can't believe the DOJ have got involved here, this is a decent ELI5, fuck these guys.

                                                                          Oh for fuck sake. The reporting on this is so fucking bad.

                                                                          It's not a "Bug" in ethereum and doesn't call anything into question.

                                                                          You know how people use algorithms and bots to trade stock?

                                                                          Ok so just like that people use these bots to capitalize on very fast trades.

                                                                          These guys built bait that made the bots think they were capitalizing on a good trade. Then quickly changed the transaction to gain funds.

                                                                          It's like a bait and switch aimed at bots.

                                                                          Imagine I put up a sell order for Game Stop stock at $4 when it's currently at whatever $50+. Trading bots would try and snatch that up instantly. If I switched this stock quickly to something useless I could make a lot of money abusing the bots looking for these trades.

                                                                          Not a bug but imo fraud. Some would argue it's not even fraud because these bots that are trading are at risk and it's a risk that you may lose money on automated trades. Aka your fault for trying to bot trades.

Inevitably I get stuff done.

                                                                                  Then over time I get the dopamine.

The doms from a layoff leg day are fucking gnarly so getting them out of the way first is huge for me.

My wife takes the kids swimming there on Saturday. I’ll be going with them this time. I’m no Rambo but if one of those scumbags stops my car there will be a reckoning. I have zero tolerance for this shite. Pray for my soul as at my age it will probably be a fatal encounter . The murderer will be easily recognisable as his left ear will be in my pocket. You hear this , his left ear. Keep this info for the police . A cross eyed scumbag with missing teeth and a left ear gone. The LEFT ear ok. LEFT. If it’s the right ear, you have the wrong guy.

Inevitably I get stuff done.

                                                                                                                Then over time I get the dopamine.

                                                                                                                The the habit is back.

                                                                                                                I also find that focusing on the things I hate, like doing legs, first and foremost gets me over the inertia faster. The doms from a layoff leg day are fucking gnarly so getting them out of the way first is huge for me.
                                                                                                                I was making great progress probably since last October. Even with a bit of a stumble through a meniscus tear around Nov-ish (actually going for MRI soon).

                                                                                                                Then I changed job in April and went from 5 min to 50 min commute. My routine of gym at 6.30am fell apart and I also have some mystery dose (usual oh its viral be grand diagnosis) for 3 weeks that's thankfully easing off. Wrecked with fatigue, crappy digestion and low appetite. Did my first session this morning in weeks and it was really tough despite going 70%.

                                                                                                                The hardest part was actually scraping myself out of bed and into the car. That inertia is no joke! Hopefully this dose disappears and I can get back to the routine. Genuinely hadn't felt better physically and mentally in years when I was going regularly over the last few months.
