Cafe untended starting here http://www.siliconinvestor.com/readmsg.aspx?msgid=31643225 2018 06 05
Overarching Purpose: this thread shall try best to create the easy ambiance of an internet cafe situated in a politically-practical and gentrified neighbourhood where folks hang out 24-7-365 to ponder the process of collapse, have a cup, share a meal, tap on computers, and generally have a good time while fully cognisant that none shall get out of the future alive.
Any threader behaviour detrimental to thread purpose shall be mercilessly stumped on, per simple rules promulgated here http://www.siliconinvestor.com/readmsg.aspx?msgid=31013952 by universal acclamation.

Bottom line, whatever needs doing to try to deliver on Overarching Purpose may be tried without warning.
Chaos is gift
Crisis a partner
Lonely path right way
Survive to survive another day
