America openly arms terrorist groups and nations against Russia, so it's okay for Russia to arm anti-US nations [COMPACTIDEA]

US covertly and overtly supplies heavy weaponry to countries and terrorist groups in dozens of countries around the world, either to topple governments or to fight/destabilize Russia, or both. So it's alright for Russia to arm those nations that are against America - Iran, China, North Korea, Syria, Latin American countries like Venezuela, etc. So if Russia has indeed supplied advanced missile engines to North Korea, enabling the latter to reach mainland US, then this is totally alright and justified considering past and continuing US actions.

When it's Hong Kong, Turkey, or Mexico, Outlook.com wants to confirm your identity, but not for Canada - racism and xenophobia are in the blood of Americans [COMPACTIDEA]

Turn on Kaspersky Secure Connection VPN, and the first time you try to auto-sync your Outlook.com accounts [configured in Mozilla Thunderbird] from IP addresses of Mexico, HK or Turkey, Microsoft stops the auto-sync and sends you error messages and asks for further authentication [click on "This was me."]. But when the VPN shows you as coming from Canada, no questions are asked. No further authentication needed. Canada is of course "good". Nothing wrong happening here. Mexico, Turkey, Hong Kong, etc., are alien worlds full of bad guys, hackers, tricksters, fraudsters, and so the login attempt is potentially unsafe. But Canada? The shining beacon of "free" Western world. No hacks. No fraud. Must be all good. So let it pass through smoothly. What a load of racist and xenophobic rubbish in the blood of folks at Microsoft and more broadly America.

To make Russia's future secure, Russian women must start producing more babies

Enough of bullshitting from Western sheep that Russia's economy is smaller than California's or Spain's, that Russia is only a "regional power" which likes to believe that it's a superpower, that Russia doesn't produce anything that anyone wants, and so on. Nonsense. Bullshit. Coming from idiots in the West who just want to remain inside their self-created fantasy that Russia doesn't matter on the global stage. Now, Russia has all the land and natural resources it could ask for. Its women now need to get to work to produce more children - many more actually. More Russians will mean more people who can work, and these extra Russians can set up factories and other businesses in the eastern parts of Russia, which are currently very sparsely populated. More Russians will also mean more scientists, researchers, soldiers, pilots, cosmonauts, engineers, doctors, and so on. More products, more services, more inventions/innovations, more patents, more breakthroughs, more security and more prosperity. Only this way will Russia survive and thrive well into the future, and continue to challenge barbaric regimes such as America, thus ensuring that the globe doesn't get conquered by a single empire.

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably... [COMPACTIDEA]

US is continuing to bullshit the world about the various missile "defence" systems, early warning radars, etc., that it's deploying across the world. These aren't meant to protect from "Iranian missiles" or "North Korean ICBMs", as the US puts it. These are clearly meant to castrate Russian ICBMs and other advanced Russian weaponry that's fully capable of annihilating Continental US. The Americans, in reality, are shit scared and they're putting up sites all over the world to neuter/neutralize that only real and practical existential threat to their global thuggery. If/when contained, the world will never be the same again. America will unleash even more cruel wrath on the rest of the world, and we all might become its slaves.

Why does Intel even create such shitty processors like the Intel Celeron J3060?

The Celeron J3060 is pure horse-shit. There's no adulteration here, except maybe some horse urine was mixed into it. Pure, unfiltered horse waste. You can't browser the Web on this piece of crap [I bought a HP machine with this processor and I repent so badly now]. I repeat, you cannot properly run Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome on this crappy piece of junk. The experience of surfing the Web is so slow and pathetic - scrolling on even Google News is jerky - that one wonders, why did Intel even bother to make this shitty thing? It has two useless cores, each normally clocked at 1.6 GHz, which is way too slow for today's bloated software. Why didn't Intel, instead, give just one core clocked at, say, 3.2 GHz for the same price? I am quite sure that in regular usage, that processor would've felt significantly faster. Pentium 4 641 with HT comes to my mind. This awesome Pentium was launched over 10 years ago, but I'm sure that it's faster than this piece of cow-shit from 2016. It should be a crime to make such utterly disgusting products that don't allow you to do even the most basic task properly - Web browsing.

Update [2-Jul-17]: Instead of making a tower system unit using the J3060 crap, HP should've instead used AMD's A4-4020, which easily beats the J3060. Why should one give a damn to power consumption when the dog-urine J3060 won't let you do even basic tasks, while the A4-4020 will let you do a hell lot more? And the A4-4020 currently sells on Amazon for INR ~2,400, which is quite cheap.

Narendra Modi is steering India ever closer to the poisonous snake that America is - this is a disastrous path for India [COMPACTIDEA]

  1. India is buying more and more weapons from the US. Might be because of massive bribes. But leaving our old, trusted friend Russia and pursuing closer military ties with America - the known global terrorist nation - is a disastrous path for India in the long run. Maybe Modi doesn't want to feel like a beggar when he meets Trump in Jun'17, so he is splashing around a few billion dollars in order to raise his self-esteem, but getting close to the most malicious and nefarious nation in the world is a sure recipe for disaster.

    2. ‘US approves sale of 22 Guardian drones to India’ [link]
    3. Trump approves $2 bn sale of Guardian drones to India ahead of meeting [link]
  2. India, which has hitherto bought fighter planes primarily from USSR/Russia, seems poised to buy large number of fighter aircraft from US. This is a terrible development, not just for India but for the entire world. Not only will our money empower the US, further enabling it to carry out its destructive and destabilizing foreign policy, we might also one day yet another vassal of America.

Geographic isolation allows US to conduct invasions and wars with almost complete impunity

Looking at world map, it’s clear that US enjoys a “natural” advantage as far as its geographic location is concerned. US is “protected” from attacks/invasions by other nations by vast oceans surrounding it. Canada on the top is no threat at all [it’s probably an advantage, ironically], while Mexico to the bottom isn’t an adversary, and the kind of threats the latter poses are different. Not so for Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which are either joined at several places via land [allowing easier entry/exit], or have relatively small water bodies separating them, allowing movement using boats.

This advantage allows US to bomb and destroy other nations in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East with impunity. It’s the Asians, Europeans and Muslim nations which have to bear the consequences of America’s actions. And bear not just America’s relentless bombings. But also what comes after - unstable nations, extremism, uprisings, civil wars, terrorism [much of it also funded by the US] and more.

The only meaningful ways for those who want to take revenge from the US to enter it are via planes or ships. And US makes sure that it very carefully checks the credentials and history/profile of those who come in, thus safeguarding itself from the vengeance of those whose lives US destroyed/destroys. The rest of the world pays dearly though.

Lessons from what has recently happened to Qatar

  • America is nobody's ally. No one can or should trust America. It only thinks of itself and works for itself. America isn't coming to the rescue of its so-called "ally" Qatar in any way. America only needed/needs Qatar for the Al Udeid Air Base, for covert supply of "support" to select militant/terrorist groups, for its gas reserves, and to sell expensive fighters, weapons, etc., to Qatar. America is a poisonous snake and the Qataris better realize this now.
    • Actually, more than the Qataris, it is Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE, Kuwait, Jordan, Oman, etc., which need to realize - fast - that America is an opportunist, filthy snake. America can and will sting anyone as it sees fit.
  • Qatar should've made itself much more stronger than it currently is. Why such a staggeringly low number of fighter jets? This is so weird, that it almost creates a Saudi-US conspiracy theory in my mind! What's the use of such massive wealth if you won't buy the means to defend yourself! Ask Singapore. No neighbor can dare thinking of invading Singapore. Ask Taiwan. China is so much bigger than Taiwan but Taiwan still looks quite well-equipped, relatively.
    • And did Qatar forget that it's sitting just next to a giant dragon, Saudi?
  • It's important to cultivate relationships - especially military - with multiple powerful nations simultaneously. Qatar should've developed military relationships with China, Russia, Italy, and Sweden too. It should've had equipment from several nations.
  • You need your own industrial capability for manufacturing weapons. You can't trust so-called allies - least of all the United States - to be really there for you in your time of need. You need self-made weaponry, free from covert spying devices and other nonsense [see below]. This is the direction in which Turkey, Brazil and India are going, and it's the direction in which America's other so-called allies must go.
    • It's not merely possible or likely, but rather certain that there are secret kill switches embedded into the fancy military toys that US sells to Saudi, UAE, etc. These will be used to quietly and instantly disable these toys at the required time. The use of software means that the Arabs can never know if/where these are present.
  • Whatever anyone might say, a nuclear weapon remains the ultimate insurance against nefarious neighbors. Should be acquired, and shouldn't be given up.
  • Size matters. If you're tiny, like Qatar is, you need to spend disproportionately to defend yourself. Especially so when you have so much wealth, so much gas/oil, a sprawling news media network, so many well-developed companies.
  • You should have something/some things that make those who can control/misuse/manipulate you dependent on you [to discourage them from controlling you]. For example, Qatar Airways, via its significant orders for Airbus and Boeing planes holds meaningful control over Europe and US, and can use this card to push these nations to push Saudi to drop its blockade.

Reliance Jio's free unlimited voice calls feature has led to a flood of useless incoming calls [COMPACTIDEA]

All of us know and bear folks who make useless, spam-like phone calls for just about everything [particularly in business]. Reliance Jio is a boon for such folks. Now the friction of cost is gone. The floodgates are open. Now these people can call you endlessly and irritate you even more :)

The first highly stable Windows releases - Windows 2000 and Windows XP [COMPACTIDEA]

Some might say that this crown goes to Windows NT 4.0, but I've never used it. Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, and particularly since 2001/2002 when I got my first computer, I've installed and used various flavors of the Windows operating system, and that too numerous times - 95, 98/98 SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and so on. I personally feel that Windows 2000 and Windows XP were the first truly stable Windows OSes. Life before these stable OSes was hellish - Windows 98/ME could/would crash any damn moment, taking with it whatever you might have been doing. Installing drivers today is a non-issue, but back then finding the right drivers and installing these was "the" main issue. It's possible that NT 4.0 was relatively stable as well [I used to read about its enterprise-class stability, especially compared to 95 and 98, in computer magazines during my school days]. Back then they also used to praise the rock-solid stability of Linux. But 2000 and later XP and Vista changed all that. The Windows of today, for example 8.1, is so stable that it frequently stays on on my systems for months without any issues.
