Existential Angst

leave a comment »

In the face of the daily news from all sources, the Twitter-sphere, and the rest of the internet, it seems that we all are facing numerous existential issues. In the news cycle alone lately we have more and more proofs with data that anthropogenic climate change (ok ok destruction) leaves us with an expiration date for life on the planet of 2050. Meanwhile, the Trump administration (if one calls it that and not shit show) is busily destroying Democracy and seemingly trying to move that 2050 deadline to, oh, next year. No wonder why generally the populace, and in particular the youth today (Millennials and Z’s) seem to be losing their collective minds and more often infantilizing themselves into a stupor.

Yes yes, of course the parents of those millennials also sculpted, wait, bulldozed, their psyche’s into this mess but after that, I cannot blame them looking at the world and just wanting to check the fuck out. I mean, look at all this shit today? How the fuck did we get here? No, it wasn’t just Russia either! No, we did this to ourselves and it’s only gonna get worse I fear. It will be a combination of fucked up elders and dysfunctional governments (mostly the US in this post) just spinning the cylinder on the .38 snub and hold it to our collective heads like that famous Vietnam war photo…. At least it can feel that way at times. We just have no control do we?

All of this and likely future fuckery that is to come makes me just postulate that we are in for a worse time down the line and that many of you out there will just go all YOLO and give up. I for one often think about this on a grander scale and since I am in my later years, I often just have to settle with; “well, at least I did not have any kids” because fuuuuuuck are they going to have to deal with all this shit when the bill comes due!

Which brings me to my next topic, as we move through all this and still do not do anything to really address the more existential issues that we all must deal with or die, I suspect more and more people will just resign themselves to it all and let apathy take them away. Some will be cognizant of it all and steadily lose their minds, showing many manifestations of mental maladies and perhaps take up behaviors like drugs, or other hobbies to just not deal with reality. It’s easy to get lost in the cyber now right?

Game away your pains and dull your senses with some drug or whatnot right?

Lately I have wondered and pondered at the people in this hacking/infosec community as well and why they seem so fixated on all this or that shit, lacking any broader ability to converse about things or experience things. Perhaps they already feel this, perhaps they are all spectrum…

Who knows.

Ugh, whatever… Just deal with your mortality kids.

No More LinkedIN

leave a comment »

It seems that after posting about an alleged sale of Iranian spy data on the darknet, I find myself no longer able to log into LinedIN. I believe someone reported me for that post and perhaps some of the other oddities posts I have found in the darknet and shared on my LI page. Upon trying to log in since then I get the following demand for my personal data, either my passport, my drivers license or some other identity card scanned or photographed to prove I am who I am to their site so I can log in again.

I have a couple words for you LinkedIN; Fuck you.

That’s right, fuck you. I remember when you got hacked and all your passwords were not encrypted. I sincerely doubt that you will handle even more sensitive data of mine like an image of my national ID, Passport, or my drivers license with any more delicacy. This also feels like just another means to gather even more data about me that you could potentially sell to others or provide to any law enforcement agency that asks in future. In fact, how do I know that this is not an attempt to harvest more personal data to do that now?

No, I have nothing to hide, but fuck this kind of shit to allegedly authenticate me after finding “strange activity” on my account. This smells like a corpse flower in the dead heat of the Amazon basin.

So yeah, I know LinkedIN was seeing all my traffic, and they kept trying to get me to sign up to a full account but this is no way to go about it, nor is it a security check that is valid either. I am not giving you my ID’s

Buh bye.
