  2. Ahahahaha this is great. So, basically, what this is talking about can be summed up as "human robots" and stuff. I'm not going to go through the whole thing, but I'll go through the specific images that Positron has.

    Image 1:
    Posthuman is a word people use when referring to humans who have been "enhanced" in some way, such as brain or body enhancements.

    People with robotic limbs can perform better labour. People with chips in their brains can understand social things better (???). People with eye robotic implants can have better sight. It could come to a point where using such devices are even out of their control, sometimes even to the point of being against their will.

    [The "artisan meta-smoothie" is I'm guessing a fancy term for artificial hormones, like having an implant that automatically releases a hormone in your body without your consent. Think of insulin pumps that do so automatically and not manually.]

    Image 2:
    Chelsea Manning is an example of a posthuman because she was a trans woman who was also surrounded by a bunch of data that she had to manage and immerse herself in.

    [I suspect this part is bs and the author just wanted to either put a big name in there or wanted to tie transness with posthuman and manning is the best example for some reason]

    Image 3:
    [This one's a bit harder, because I understand each word individually but don't really understand how it works as a whole.]

    There is an interesting hypocrisy or interesting-ness where bastions of pop culture proclaiming various things directly contradict events occurring. This adds another layer to such pop culture. {think of post modern art beliefs where the reason the person is making the art is also part of the art piece and influences it.} [One could almost call this irony.] In Guantanamo Bay, music that spoke of freedom and human rights played while people were being tortured in cages. While Manning was copying database entries to upload to Wikileaks, she was singing along to Lady Gaga. [and somehow this means something??]

    ---------

    It's an interesting piece about posthumanism, but using Manning's role as a data worker isn't what I think a good argument.

  3. As pointed out, the music was the torture in many cases.

    Some music played in Gitmo to torture detainees (warning clickbait link):

    1. "The Real Slim Shady" by Eminem
    2. “Take Your Best Shot” by Dope
    3. "Dirrty" by Christina Aguilera
    4. "Zikrayati (My Memories)" by Mohamed el-Qasabgi
    5. "Babylon" by David Gray
    6. "I Love You" by The Barney Theme (now this really is a war crime)
    7. "Saturday Night Fever" by the Bee Gees
    8. The Meow Mix theme (as is this)
    9. “The Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson
    10. "Fuck Your God" by Deicide
    11. “We Are the Champions” by Queen

  4. When I read a bit of this it reminded me of some studies that have been 'published' in supposedly peer-reviewed journals that consisted of complete nonsense made up by word generators. The point was that the "authors" would submit complete gibberish to point out that the journals in question are bogus ('predatory publishing') and only existed to charge fees for what amounted to vanity publishing under the guise of scientific inquiry (and thereafter would sometimes get cited unknowingly as if they were 'real' articles because they were cited in publications with impressive names).

    But looking into it a bit more and the author's history I think he just aches for Manning's girldick.

  5. Yeah, I did some research about the whole thing with post-humanism and that sort of thing one semester and Manning doesn't really factor into it. You could maybe talk about transitioning as a whole, but post-humanism is more interested in the biological-technological spectrum than the hormonal aspects that transitioning involves.

  6. The whole "cyborg", "posthumanism" malarkey was just a feminist fever dream of the drug-fueled 1960s. Normal people just call that "tool use".

  7. It's gained some traction with the use of prosthetics and mainstream attention of superheroes, but yeah. Silly.

  8. They also used Yoko Ono music.

    Wanna see how fucking hard you are? Put on headphones and a blindfold, crank that shit to the max, and see how long you can withstand Yoko Ono before being ready to tell anyone who can make it stop where Gramma hides the silverware. That shit gave a friend of mine a nosebleed at the nine minute mark.

    On the transhumanism thing, I find it funny how many people seem to think that it refers to transgenderism instead of human enhancement through bioware or cyberware

  9. They do these things because it sounds silly and funny, but it’s not funny at the 12 hour mark. They also blast it at ear-splitting volume when you’re trying to sleep, and randomize when it turns on and off, so even when it’s off, you still can’t sleep because you’re afraid it’s going to start any moment and jar you out of sleep again. It can actually be more effective than a beating over the long run.

    Also, the Barney theme song can drive you crazy. Look what it did to this guy.

  12. Oh, I'm not kidding. That "audio stress" is fucking brutal. They run it at like 100db and sporadically.

    And using Yoko Ono's a fucking war crime.

  13. I don't know who handles the filing, but if it's Manning it could be that he's required to not use a computer, especially connected to the internet. OR they could just be used to doing it the old way.

  15. Manning spent most of it on salaries for employees, plus $8K on web stuff, $10K on a lawyer, and $5K on PR. Compared to Wu For Elective Monarch the expenditures are downright reasonable.
