A Recession Is Not the Problem, a Deep Inflationary Depression Should Be a Far Greater Concern

Persistently massive inflows of cash into a key Federal Reserve facility are in large part being driven by a bank liquidity regulation change from last year, a report from the New York Fed said Friday.

Bank of America Warns of Looming Unemployment Shock

Bank of America (BofA) analysts are warning of a collapsing U.S. labor market and a potential rise in unemployment next year.

They also recommended selling a stock market rally ahead of the likely surge in job losses.

“Bears (like us) worry unemployment in 2023 will be as shocking to Main Street consumer sentiment as inflation in 2022,” stated BofA strategists led by Michael Hartnett, who revealed that global equity funds were having their biggest weekly outflows in three months.

“We’re selling risk rallies from here,” he said, reiterating his preference for bonds over equities in the first half of 2023.

Bear Grylls Now ‘Survives’ in War-torn Ukraine

Bear Grylls Now ‘Survives’ in War-torn Ukraine

By RT News

The British TV survivalist has been spotted with a film crew in the country.

TV star and former SAS trooper Bear Grylls has been spotted in Ukraine, local media outlets reported on Wednesday, with footage of the presenter and his film crew circulating online.

Grylls, who is now sporting a mustache, was seen filming at a gas station, as well as socializing and taking selfies with its staff.

It was not immediately clear what exactly Grylls was doing in the country, which has been locked in a conflict with Russia since late February.

Given the circumstances, the presenter is likely either seeking to film the hardships locals are experiencing or, potentially, testing his own survival skills in the war-torn country.

So far, Grylls has made no official announcements about what he’s doing in Ukraine. Earlier this week, the TV star shared a rather cryptic message on his social media accounts, sharing a selfie aboard a plane and writing, “On the road again … what’s your hack to deal with nerves?”

Grylls is best known for the now-defunct ‘Man vs. Wild’ show, a survival television series that ran on the Discovery channel from 2006 – 2011. The TV star has also participated in multiple similar projects, demonstrating his survival skills in the wilderness while snacking on a questionable assortment of animals.

By Chris Black

Apparently, while Old Twitter was busy banning everyone for posting wrong-think, massive public pedophile networks were openly buying and selling child porn on their website.

Elon takes over and most of it gets cleared out within a week.

Really makes you think…why would ADL hate Musk so much?

This is not about “free speech”.

SICK: Facebook Oculus Founder Claims to Invent VR Device that Can Kill the User in Real Life When they Lose in a Game

SICK: Facebook Oculus Founder Claims to Invent VR Device that Can Kill the User in Real Life When they Lose in a Game

By Jim Hoft

Oculus’s founder, who was subsequently terminated from his position at Facebook, claimed to develop a virtual reality (VR) headset that has the capability of bringing gamers’ deaths into the real world.

In a blog post published November 6, Palmer Luckey, one of the original founders of the Oculus VR who sold his company to Facebook and now acts as the foundation for Mark Zuckerberg’s metaverse ambitions, claimed that he had modified a virtual reality headset so that it would explode if the wearer lost in a video game, killing them in real life as well.

According to Luckey’s blog post titled “If you die in the game, you die in real life,” the fictional virtual reality headset “NerveGear” from the Sword Art Online anime series served as inspiration for his deadly gaming gear.

Sword Art Online (SAO) is a Japanese light novel series written by Reki Kawahara. The anime has been released where players control their avatars with their bodies using a piece of technology called: Nerve Gear. One day, players discover they cannot log out, as the game creator is holding them captive unless they reach the 100th floor of the game’s tower and defeat the final boss. However, if they die in the game, they die in real life, according to Crunchyroll.

“You want NerveGear, the incredible device that perfectly recreates reality using a direct neural interface that is also capable of killing the user,” Luckey wrote.

“The idea of tying your real life to your virtual avatar has always fascinated me – you instantly raise the stakes to the maximum level and force people to fundamentally rethink how they interact with the virtual world and the players inside it.  Pumped up graphics might make a game look more real, but only the threat of serious consequences can make a game feel real to you and every other person in the game.  This is an area of videogame mechanics that has never been explored, despite the long history of real-world sports revolving around similar stakes,” he continued.

“The good news is that we are halfway to making a true NerveGear  The bad news is that so far, I have only figured out the half that kills you.  The perfect-VR half of the equation is still many years out.”

“This isn’t a perfect system, of course.  I have plans for an anti-tamper mechanism that, like the NerveGear, will make it impossible to remove or destroy the headset.  Even so, there are a huge variety of failures that could occur and kill the user at the wrong time.  This is why I have not worked up the balls to actually use it myself, and also why I am convinced that, like in SAO, the final triggering should really be tied to a high-intelligence agent that can readily determine if conditions for termination are actually correct.”

At this point, it is just a piece of office art, a thought-provoking reminder of unexplored avenues in game design.  It is also, as far as I know, the first non-fiction example of a VR device that can actually kill the user.  It won’t be the last. See you in the metaverse,” he said.

Forbes reported:

Murderous video games are a longtime pursuit for Luckey, who talked about this over a year ago:

It is also notable that Luckey claims to have built weaponized gaming tech like this, given his jump from VR to founding Anduril Industries, his company that makes AI-based surveillance and defense systems for the U.S. military. They recently landed a $1 billion contract to lead counter-unmanned systems to work for the United States Special Operations Command.

Given that VR tech is still trying to break past a niche to get people to play games that are actually fun, the idea that we are barreling toward some sort of Sword Art dystopia where users are signing up to play games that have the potential to kill you does…not seem plausible. Even Sword Art Online had to trick its players into being trapped with NerveGear, it’s not like they were going around selling VR headsets with murder potential written up as a feature.

As ever, Palmer Luckey is…something else. I look forward to him hosting his first Bloodsport tournament on a private island or whatever weird thing emerges next from his brain.
