virus: Re: Stupidity

Greetings Virions,

I apologize for not posting recently. I've been hard at work producing some electronic tracks with some friends, getting my computer business up and running, going to school and working, among other things.

But I just _had_ to comment on the memeoid behavior demonstrated in Colorado.

It wasn't long ago that I carried a concealed .38 revolver to high school on almost a daily basis(I still do but thats a secret ;-)).
"Students" were robbing other "students" for cash, clothes, jewelry,
shoes, gang raping young (beautiful and promising I might add) women, engaging in fisticuffs with the faculty, shooting other students, gang wars, car theft, drug sales, name it. And all this happened at a school smack dab in the middle of good ole American suburbia, about 30% white, 30 Hispanic, 25 black, and 15 'other'(excuse lack of politcal correctness I fail to find interest in such trivialities)

Back then I barely knew the definition of meme but vaguely figured the events transpiring around me had something to do with the concept. I read on an earlier post the great tinkerer was 14. Not to single you out but I do hope you continue to tinker.

When I was 14 I carried a Sykes-Fairbairn Commando dagger with me to school. I've been shot at, robbed at gunpoint, stared down the barrel of a revolver, cut with razors in a melee...I can almost name 25 former classmates who ended up in the penitentiary, addicted, prostituting, murdered, and 1 who vanished suddenly under suspicious circumstances. Does it matter if 25 die in one incident as opposed to 25 over a five yr period?

Despite all the stupidity going on I make an effort to maintain an extropic attitude, untouched, unmoved, unstained by world pollution, Kosovo, UFO sightings, Billy Boy's sexual prowess(or lack of it)** transvestites jilting their lovers on talk shows, Iraqi bio weapons... Actually I can enjoy this sort of thing, and profit from it. I advise that you all do.

Would it be morally wrong to take advantage of the carrier of an auto-toxic meme? exo-toxic? If he/she/it refused to see their error(read stupidity) of their ways? Why not prey on those who CHOOSE to be stupid, paranoid, ignorant for the overall advancement of the species?

I think this Millenial Meme like many others can be symbiotic to very few opportunistic individuals/packs and parasitic to all the rest.

Think about the billions you could make if you created a computer virus that sovled th Y2K problem. Ever thought about owning a gun dealership, selling storable food, ammunition, biowar vaccines???

These idiot primates broke records of last years school shootings. Who, where, when will the next record breaking take place?

I'm not calloused or cold-hearted but it seems humanistic to allow the public to be bombarded and victimized by such events til they realize how futile and limited their belief spaces are and realize/overcome religious-ethnic-cultural-sociosexual memes which prevent them from attacking the roots of their problems and not just the branches, beating around the bush.

**He was harassed, but still he spoke with authority. He was, in fact, characteristic of the best type of dominant male in the world at this time. He was fifty-five years old, tough, shrewd, unburdened by the complicated ethical ambiguities which puzzle intellectuals, and had long ago decided that the world was a mean son-of-a-bitch in which only the most cunning and ruthless can survive. He was also as kind as was possible for one holding that ultra-Darwinian philosophy and he genuinely loved children and dogs, unless they were on the site of something that had to be bombed in the National Interest. He still retained some sense of humor, despite the burdens of his almost godly office, and, although he had been impotent with his wife for nearly ten years now, he generally achieved orgasm in the mouth of a skilled prostitute within 1.5 minutes. He took amphetamine pep pills to keep going on his greuling twenty-hour day, with the result that his vision of the world was somewhat skewed in a paranoid direction, and he took tranquilizers to keep from worrying too much, with the result that his detachment sometimes bordered on the schizophrenic; but most of the time his innate shrewdness gave him a fingernail grip on reality. In short, he was much like the rulers of Russia and China. ;-)
