It's three files per table involved.

Sounds like there's room for optimization, then. Get it down to one.

Pre-WW2 Germany all over again. Hopefully with less Hitler this time.

Please, tag that shit as "Not Safe For People That Love Paper Money"!!!

Seriously, people that litter piss me off. People that litter with OUR currency ticks all the wrong boxes in me. But then I live in the land of primitive savages fighting for their own survival...

Whenever I find discarded bills on the street, I pick and carry them home (if they're still in one piece). My biggest "rescue" so far is roughly a brick and a half (~1500 notes) of VEF 1000 notes.

I spent the next THREE DAYS cleaning moldy notes (fungus is really nasty to whatever cotton-based fibers they use to make money), just because some moron that doesn't trust our banking system prefers to hoard cash in hyperinflation, just to figure out that this is an extremely dumb idea. Still, I managed to find a lone replacement note on the lot (mold-free, even!) :D

I have a separate chapter on my collection for such salvages, if only because I believe no banknote belongs to dumpsters, sewers, or shredders. Also, it's no fun to find rare bills in piss-poor collections, so I found myself lately giving numismatics lessons whenever I go to the bank - it's fun when I convince people to take a look at the serial numbers in their pockets.

So for various reasons, I wound up digging an old Lion King clip off of YouPotato.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVAN2o-5pYM

Scar's "Be Prepared" song, specifically.



This is probably news to nobody, but I haven't seen the movie since I was... twelve? I was aware World War 2 was a thing that happened, but not necessarily well-versed in the imagery. So it COMPLETELY escaped my notice until today that Scar and the hyenas are being illustrated with some pretty darn overt third reich imagery at one point.

You might be interested in a 20-minute video essay about the cinematic language of propaganda.

Our mental construct of the Nazis is deeply informed by a propaganda film produced by the Nazis, for the explicit purpose of creating that mental construct. This right here is exactly the image they wanted you to think of, when you thought of them.


The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

Japan pls.

Although this would be more interesting if the AI would add real-time mosaics, rather than going "I can't let you do that, Dave".

Also, I guess someone finally invented a camera that refuses to work at museums, where artistic nude exhibits are placed routinely.

Assuming the image recognition routines are reliable, which I'm sure they are because computer vision is a solved problem.

More likely, it lets the teens send nudes to each other just fine, but they can't take pictures in a park with a sandbox.

Facts are facts no matter who they come from.

Of course Venezuela is a fascist dictatorship pretending to be a socialist democracy, not an actual one, so there’s that.

All the countries that have tried “socialism” have failed because those with wealth and power from the previous government, or from rising up to replace it, refused to give it up, which totally undermines the concept of real socialism.

Ah, good ole' COVID-19.

Yeah, when that shit hits us here over Soviet Venezuela, we're fucking dead. We don't even have a health system anymore!

Today I saw a maintenance worker at a local bank branch scrubbing the doors. With gloves.
And I heard some places started offering free hand sanitizer for their visitors.

Of course our dear commie leaders will follow by example, by denying we're contaminated to hell and back until people start dying and they can't silence the doctors anymore, a-la-China.
No, I'm not using the jest tag this time. Every single government in the world (including the WHO) has seriously fucked it up with this nasty virus, and we're going to pay it dearly, in one form or another.

Brace yourselves, as the train has no brakes, and YOU are going get the corona... and no, not the fancy Mexican beer one!

...

In other news, sadly related with COVID-19, the E3 has been cancelled for this year. And SXSW. And other high-profile conventions around the world. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics? Consider them cancelled (or at least severely delayed) for now.

Even a scientific convention about coronavirus has been cancelled... due to coronavirus. Oh the irony~!

And now, officially Soviet Venezuela has lied to the people as much as they could confirmed its two first cases of COVID-19.

We're officially FUCKED.

School has been cancelled, same as public gatherings, etc. The commies are taking advantage of this golden chance to be bastards, rather than actually doing the right things to give us a chance of hope to survive this mess nearly unscratched. They're now trying to force people to wear facemasks (which we already know they're completely useless except for those already infected, and only to stop spreading the virus)

Yet... pharmacies have run out of alcohol, because Venezuelans are silly enough to believe that alcohol and soap (which the average Venezuelan can't afford anymore) are enough to counter the epidemic. Yes, they DO greatly help... on a country with a somewhat working health system and access to clean tap water. Not on this one, where you can easily go up to years without running water on your pipes (and when you get some, it's contaminated to hell and back, and you can't go to the nearest supermarket and buy water-purifying tablets or whatever).

Yes, I'm fucking scared. Maybe I'm not going to die, but certainly my family (mom, uncles, anyone in the previous generation) is on the high-risk population, and I don't want to be the one to deliver the kiss of death. And pretty much nobody can afford medical care of any kind (provided you can find some half-working clinic which will gladly demand all the $$$$/€€€€, because public hospitals are out of the equation) over here, so you should be able to figure out that it's not going to be pretty.

... OK, we MIGHT have a glimmer of hope: the virus really dislike hot climates, and we're entering into one particularly hot summer. This is what's saving South America so far from an even larger spread of the pandemic.

I guess the CANTV technicians will take this as a neat excuse to keep refusing to fix my phone line, that has been broken for 13 months and counting. Unless if I pay "rescue", naturally.

Jesus... can't even imagine what's the situation like in Venezuela. They're also closing the schools here (although our 4mo daughter is obviously a tad too young for school so at least no need to worry about that). We're avoiding any kind of hospitals; only small clinics with appointment so as to avoid having to wait with a bunch of potentially sick people for long periods (although infants are supposed to actually be at lower risk).

Tbh, I don't remember having seen anything like that. I just hope this whole thing turns out not as bad as some of the worse-case scenarios -certain countries like Germany could end up with a 70% infection rate according to some.
