china announces a mutual tariff de-escalation; the stock
market jumps. but will trump blow it apart with a tweet
tomorrow? at this point, china could have potentially
already made a profit via buying low before the surge, and
if they know trump (all two centimeters) they'll know
whether to put or get da fuk outa hir. trump and his
buddies, meanwhile, could make a mint short-selling before
he destroys the surge via twitter.

then, there's the long-game -- will trump willingly leave
office? given his attitude, you wouldn't blame me for
thinking that, should he actually be removed from office, he
may refuse to acknowledge it? america is rather unicorn
amongst the history of countries for a long, unbroken streak
of peaceful transitions of power.

say impeachment fails (sadly likely) but trump loses the
election. it's not quite impeachment, but i can already
picture the ELECTION FRAUD! FAKE NEWS! tweets

people laugh nervously at first, but as the transition point
nears, things get increasingly tense. trump becomes
increasingly unhinged. openly screaming at reporters. firing
everyone, even people that don't work for him. he begins to
frantically mash the buttons on his desk to create
distraction and get reality to acknowledge his existence
somehow. troops pulled out of here. tariffs there. no?
protests in the media? send out the army

at this point, russia and china say "lol" and collectively
detonate the 2/3 of american infrastructure that they've
quietly been infiltrating for years. chaos. i am holed up in
my apartment, debating the wisdom of going out to the
hardware store for another deadbolt or two, presuming
looters haven't gotten them already

i feel like i should go out and buy a palette of bottled
water and loads of tinned beans.

citing fear of WWIII, twitter decides to ban political ads.

There is too much information to process, its like constant
psychic shock

- some book by "anonymous" tearing up trump
- mulvaney subpoena
- michael bloomberg entering race
- china trade deal (or maybe not)
- 1 dead, 8 injured after chemical incident at buffalo wild
wings
- trump ordered to pay $2mil for not treating his charity
like a charity
- milo yappalottapus sitting in the courtroom during robert
stone's trial
- 2 million pounds of chicken recalled
- the story about the perv university doctor is back for
like the sixth time and roping in some senator

honestly, no problem processing. the real problem is it's
hard to retain it for more than a week or three because
there's so much flowing in

I forget half of it by the end of the day unfortunately, im
sure someone in MIT is using a super computer to collate
this data

train a neural network to predict trump's erratic tweets and
make a fortune on the market

yeah exactly if you combine the power of neural networks
with the processing power of quantum computing imagine the
first person to do this successfully, how rich they will get
by predicting market trends or something like that I dunno
im probably completely wrong, I know quantum computing is
only faster than classic computers in a certain subset of
tasks

randomness does not actually exist. it is a concept we made
up. if you could get live data from every car on the road,
traffic cameras, traffic light control, weather, holiday
calendar... you can train a neural network, feed in the live
data, and get pretty good predictions about traffic
patterns... but not perfect. how do you predict a
fender-bender? well, obviously, you need more data. if you
are somehow able to develop individual personality profiles
for everyone on the road, you can learn to infer that if
Impatient Jerk 2197 comes within 2 cars of Young Douchebag
450, when they are both within 100 feet of mile marker
128.2, on a hungover monday morning, with rain, well! 90%
change of an accident; summon the cops in advance

but, obviously, you can't get at all this data. a human can
learn to infer it over years of experience with humans and
driving, but neural networks cannot do this.

the point remains, though, that, if you could somehow scan
the state of the whole world and throw a quantum computer at
it, you would start to have a pretty good sense of the
future, and the opportunity to potentially direct the course
of reality itself.

even with quantum computers, we probably wouldn't have
enough horsepower to manage this without building a
dyson sphere or something. and even if we managed
that, how would we scan the whole planet in order to
run a simulation?

just interests me that reality is essentially based on a lot
of interacting information and if you have enough of a
handle on it you can control reality

even if u had all the data to calculate probability of an
event there is a decision factor that is more than all your
experiences summed imho

it would be good for reducing insurance for people who
aren't complete dickheads
