Chatter appears to be implying that China's Xi is in isolation lockdown. Some have said military coup and other saying it is "different" though still somewhat acknowledging isolation.

This could get very interesting.

Maybe he's in isolation due to having COVID, which means it's most likely nothing.

Maybe. China has always been tight lipped so we will know for sure soon enough. Either he is back in the public eye or he is dead and someone new is in charge. Only one extreme or the other really.

True that is really could be nothing. I just found it odd that so many are pinging on military coup there. I mean, Iran, Pakistan, Malaysia.... sure. China? That seems less likely though we go back to they are pretty tight lipped.

A military takeover in China would have meant taking out the entire central comity, it would be more than just Xi.

Apparently Xi surfaced publicly. I didn't bother reading anything about it, just that he is clearly still running things in one form or fashion.

I didn’t look too hard, but I never saw anything about this, beside your posts here.

The original source was the Epoch Times, so I'm not surprised this turned out to be nothing.

I saw it on blogs that pass through my RSS feeds. So clearly not a "reliable source" and why I didn't link to it originally.

I looked today and an India news outfit published it as fact fueling the fire more. Now Yahoo is saying it was all a hoax originating from Twitter. Seems fitting.

In other news though, the Toebbe couple pleads guilty, again, with a plea deal they hope will be acceptable since the judge rejected their original deal.

I hope they fry. Certainly at least stay locked up the rest of their life. With no, and I mean no, outside communication beyond their prison wall.

An Alphabet-owned Wing drone "incinerated itself" after it became entangled in power lines in Brisbane, Australia. On the bright side, the food stayed hot.
Funny story here. As a drone owner I was aware of power lines. Kinda funny that this one managed to play the part of a squirrel and transformer.

Whoops!

Well, Alphabet is gonna be on the hook for some repairs. If you live there, make sure all your electroniky things are working and prepare your claims if they went kaput!

I watched the back end of the AI Day broadcast centered around "Teslabot".

Boston Dynamics doesn't have anything to worry about just yet.

The Onion filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in defense of parody. It's a searing defense of free speech and also the funniest legal document ever drafted:

Loretta Lynn has passed, at 90.

What an amazing talent and life. One of the few artists that were in constant rotation (with Cash, Holly, Presley and Manilow) at my house when I was growing up. Bittersweet memories.

So it goes.

I just watched this guy on the matter, and greatly respect his opinion.

What The Onion is doing is both funny and serious in the same breath, and I hope the SCOTUS has the balls to take this one up. Failure to do so will leave the 6th Circuit's ruling in place, permitting police to arrest people who criticize them. That cannot be allowed to stand!

Rust filming to continue after Alec Baldwin reaches settlement over civil suit. I am a bit surprised that this movie will be completed, although I suppose due to the notoriety due to the prop gun death, it will attract some viewers. The production company wants to make it a "tribute" to the slain cinematographer, but I wonder how they will have the budget to continue if all the questionable practices on set are to be brought up to standard. The article notes that the criminal investigation is still ongoing. So much for Alec Baldwin considering that his acting career may be over.

I suspect Baldwin will get by somehow, even if he never gets another acting gig.

On a more serious note, the families reaction tells the real story, IMO. Usually the family of the victim(s) are the most adamant if something is even slightly fishy. That isn’t the case here.
