Economic Model

"Economic Model" by Herr D on heromachine by Shelob's request.

[dreamstate integration protocol successful on eleventh try, Hairy's neuralink connection established] Hairy? Further communications result in quandary. Observe:

Where economic resources total a non-infinite number, E. Exploitative businesses conduct business at efficiency, f. Wages, living, total W. Unknown number N.

f = (W-N), but W-N is proportional to E-N(t) for all integrated forms, regardless of other factors, multipliers, set values, or limits on 't.' So efficiency is decided in relation to destruction of total.

Demonstrated paradox does not directly relate that sweatshops are repugnant as news media declares, but paying employees a 'non-living' wage is sought after by businesses. "Businesses should be ashamed of exploiting the under-privileged and disadvantaged." --Smith. 

So, they just aren't ashamed of themselves.

Though you say they should be. How can efficiency and self-destruction be analogous? This does not compute.

It computes because the same forces that are upholding the economy are helping make the economy worse. 'A frog does not drink up the pond in which it lives.' Some Native American saying, I think. Where did all THAT wisdom go?

Perhaps they traded it for the casino that just opened.

[raucous laughter] That's not it. Funny--but not it.

Won't raising the minimum wage solve the problem?

That--won't help. Not a bad idea by itself, just--it won't be enough to  solve the problem.

Initial data conundrum. Why is that action insufficient?

Well, okay then, project the outcome on an economic model.

[sixteen seconds pass] Suitable female form found. Ask Herr D for money-covered nude picture?

No. [thoughtful, lascivious pause] No. I mean project what will happen to the money. 'Follow the money.'

[sixteen seconds pass] It would appear that this is a cycle, rather than true progress. Minimum wage rises, businesses raise prices to ensure profit, and the cycle repeats.

What? [shakes self to focus on economics] Yes! As long as businesses don't have a standard to meet, they'll not meet one. Things will appear to change, but won't really.


It's actually pretty simple. Just not easy. If it becomes law to NEVER compensate anyone in a company more than a set multiplier more than the lowest paid employee, companies will still be run in a capitalist manner. Then we can start seeing the companies fail if they're not run well.

So you are against the bailout. You did say Obama made some decisions you didn't like. What alternative?

I would have suggested a full FSLIC insurance payout. Most people's money are always at least partially insured. The bank probably should've failed. Their employees were probably richer than the average unemployed person. You know they were encouraged savings--they worked at a bank. Besides, shouldn't a corporate takeover have rescued most of the jobs anyway?

At the time, you commented that you understood Obama's thinking.

I think Obama was going for consumer confidence. Very important in a capitalism, and if no one had opposed his other work, I hope he would've had the time and initiative to act in a more capitalist manner. I DEFINITELY think the bank management should have been instantly retired without more than government-sanctioned standard severance pay. The government owns lots of things, so what's one more bank, huh?

You have declared your economics sense to be incomplete. Are you sure about this?

I don't know. I'd love for anyone to explain to us all in comments why any part of what I'm saying is wrong. I'm pretty sure people don't comment as much on sites they see are right about most things.

Are you trying to use psychology to encourage commenting?

Shhh. [disengages]

Worry And Dream, Duty And Stream

[on seventh try, Shelob manages to establish neuralink dream protocol contact sequence] Hairy? Hairy? Please respond. Harvest moon rising. You made it a point to see that IRL before.

Oh, that's a pretty one. Nah. Once you've seen the permutations of three or four moons together, the possibilities of one kind of fade. Thank you though, for the notification.

Is it time to return? Is it healthy for you to remain in dream state and related fluctuations for this long?

No, don't worry about that. medbot can pull me out anytime my physicality needs it.

Are you intimately acting toward that Kali-figure again? medbot says you like the image for its capability to deal with your unusual physiognomy, while keeping you placated about neglecting your sworn duties to humanity. You made her up for--

Apparently nothing has impaired his psychic abilities. Perhaps he will simply dream longer. The ruination humanity's primitive nature causes will be there when he wakes. Worry cycle unproductive. Recommend purging from programming. Blog function off--

'America Ending Theory' Makes Hairy Laugh, And He Is Surprised What People Forget

On Herr D's request, attempted to get Hairy's input on current blog topic.  To that end, prepared partial neuralink incursion to Hairy's psyche under medbot's supervision. Results included 20% of Hairy's available brain cells, approvable as he will only remember dream references, if at all, and not be traumatized. medbot's report is that Hairy's dream psyche must be examined in context of divisions of lucidity. Luckily, Hairy's programmed enough context determining software. Herr D's request:

 I'm very concerned about the numbers of people on the net falling for the 'Obama is the last prez conspiracy theory,' Shelob. I know you're saying Hairy's in 'medical stasis,' but can't you get his opinion somehow? I know the world is full of loons, but sometimes their panic levels are infectious. Can you do anything about that?


[image detected, third attempt: kind-faced Kali-figure massaging Hairy in intimate fashion] Hairy?! Call to lucid-dreaming Hairy neural segment: Please attend.

 [approximately two-fifths of Hairy translucently leaves massage, four tentacles, one blue eye, and one brown eye waft away from image--to position of attention]

Herr D's concern:  [number redacted] people apparently believe one or more of the following: [neuralink burst, showing contents of seven different websites] Please make contribution-thought to current autoblog on subject.

Are you serious? Is this a joke? Is this a dream?

Dream partial interrupt. Real, however.

[glances back at dream imagery] Ohh. I get it. Lucid dreaming separation.  Neat idea. What're loons?

Terrestrial bird species. Possible context reference to crazy person.

Oh. [clarifying self-shake] Got it. Well, off the side of my partial being--
Off the top of your head.
Right. Uhhh . . . List of four things:

1. Conspiracy theorists are always wrong, not because their ideas are impossible, but because huma people don't work that well together. Conspiracies fail because people can't keep secrets that well and are lousy at teamwork.

2. Aliens--uh-- 'would' certainly keep their OWN evidence destroyed. Most species out there have no interest in being found by species who are still crazy enough to have conspiracy theorists and / or governments who attempt conspiracies. The rest of them are just like 'let 'em come, they can't do any HARM.'

3. Every prophecy about the world uniting is wrong. An alien INVASION, if such a thing were likely [eyes roll] would fail to unite humanity. Putin would say 'the other nations will die, we'll prevail.' Mao would think the enemy would be more hurt by us confusing them with disparate tactics. Kim Jong Un would claim he could kill them with one missile. America would try to run the attack and be ignored. Western Europe would be so divided no one could keep track. Most of the rest of the world would assume it was a hoax and go on farming. 'Too many cooks spoil the broth.'

4. The religious prophecies have an extra little something. There's a passage somewhere in the Judeo-Christian text that Herr D is so fond of that says that no one will know the day nor the hour . . .
--So in theory, the world can only end when the conspiracy theorists AREN'T  making a prediction. I'm just guessing the world will have to end QUICKLY. [snicker]

5. The morons saying that Obama is wrecking America have forgotten that he's improved unemployment and a few other things for the last seven years. How quickly they forget, right? If he was doing badly, things would be worse instead of slightly better. --and Congress is still fighting him. Morons.

This IS better than the topics you've been picking, Shelob. Go for it! [translucent partial form swims back and starts directing kindly-looking Kali figure to different intimate acts]

Hairy's Excuse

Hairy has arrived without transport unit or suitbot #1. He has collapsed from fatigue. medbot is putting him into stasis. He expressed surprise at autoblogging at exact, eleven day intervals, though he did originally program in base eleven. He explained his well-rehearsed version of recent events in a transmission to Herr D along with a request for a graphic. Obeying last instructions:  "You jumble-of-code, you! Don't wait eleven days every [choking sounds] time! Tell everyone why I've been gone. Use the 'human' version I rehearsed on the way home. See if Herr D can give it a funny picture."

"Getting A Lift," by Herr D on This should explain everything.--Shelob

[from Hairy's trans to Herr D] So, I lost my 'ride.' Had to 'take care of it.' Then I met this old-timer. He gave me a lift. We went a little out of our way. We had to avoid this storm, and he had some, uh, dietary issues. Then I found out he was homeless, had a disability, and, worse, the staff of the park he was living near had led him to believe they'd keep giving him food and stopped suddenly. He doesn't even know why. Dazed and confused, he didn't even know the way back! I had to find him a situation and leave him. Felt bad about it, but I can't take him in. The cold in my area would kill him, even if I could support him. I took him back south a ways, so at least the coming winter won't bother him so much. Anyway, sorry I've been out of touch for so long. [end trans to Herr D]
