Under the name TheTrueHOOHA, Snowden appears to have posted to ArsTechnica, a tech, IT, and geek culture site, hundreds of times over the last ten years.
He writes about owning a gun. 2006.
I have a Walther P22. It’s my only gun, but I love it to death. It’s super cheap to shoot (to the tune of $15/500rds), and I don’t intend to be in combat anytime soon.
I could still use it put ten tiny holes in important parts of a home invader if necessary, though.
He expresses disdain for “spooky types” and “pervasive government secrecy.”
It really concerns me how little this sort of corporate behavior bothers those outside of technology circles. Society really seems to have developed an unquestioning obedience towards spooky types.
I wonder, how well would envelopes that became transparent under magical federal candlelight have sold in 1750? 1800? 1850? 1900? 1950? Did we get to where we are today via a slippery slope that was entirely within our control to stop, or was it an relatively instantaneous sea change that sneaked in undetected because of pervasive government secrecy?
He seems to use the word “gay” as pejorative. 2006.
Dude, did he mention a suit at -all- in the OP? Unless you’re on a bike, messenger bags are gay. Gay, gay, gay. Super gay. RS gay. And the poor guy is in Europe. That’s the last thing he needs.
If you’ve got to wear a suit everyday, you carry a briefcase or a laptop bag. Something professional, not something fashionable.
Professional is optional since I’m here for about a year and manliness isn’t considered important by anyone here Big Green
He also mentions countries he wouldn’t mind moving to. 2006.
My list, in order (just like in the poll!) would be:
China, Korea, and australia might be swapped, though. They’re sort of nebulous.
