Opinel!!?? Abajo los franchutes!! That's a Spanish sevillana, as what was used in the revolt against Napoleon's invasion.

It was a gift from the baby mama (the mother of the kid in the birth photo alongside). I'm trying not to read into it too much.

This whole thing has pissed me off so much, I'm resorting to my timeworn cultural antidote: chorizo y Rioja. Arriba España y el mundo Hispano, coño! Y abajo la jodedera yanqui del 'Latinx'. 🇪🇸🇪🇸🇪🇸🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺

That's an interesting idea. On the dictionary front, that sorta seems to be the OED.

Because the Americans are in thrall to an idiotic French cultural fascination, and consider it high culture. While Spanish, which has as much cultural backdrop as French, is still treated like a second-class culture, whatever the polite names they give to it.

Put simply: the people who use terms like 'Latinx' non-ironically, are precisely the people that if you parachuted them into Buenos Aires or Mexico City or Madrid, would be utterly incapable of navigating those cultures as locals do. They'd be the most ugly Americans ever.

I mean, think about it: Hispanic culture, in this worldview, is not a thing in itself but merely the canvas on which to project Anglo-American neuroses. Spanish (like most languages) has a gendered grammar? Well, that's got to go, sorry, we've got to destroy Spanish to save it.

What's ironic about the Latinx thing is that the same movement that pushes it is presumably in this self-abnegating, hyper-tolerant mode of diversity maximization, while subconsciously in an attitude of absolute imperial arrogance as to who defines the boxes.

The Romans didn't seem to understand much about the Gauls they conquered. Nor did the English, Spanish, and French imperialists more recently. That's the very definition of an imperial culture: your tribe seems to you the reference frame for the entire universe.

That such foolishness is entertained among the presumably elite echelons of society is due to what I call imperial privilege: the horizons of American culture and thought are so endless, an imperial inhabitant need never seriously reckon with a truly different worldview.

What happens when Anglophone ideologues create a new ethnic label that can't be pronounced in the language of the culture it purports to represent?

If a HK protestor posts an anti-CCP video, how do you prove it's them after you've kicked in the door and seized their device?

Huntington would have a hard time explaining Israel, as one example. Nominally mono-ethnic, but actually as disparate as the US in practice.

I wasn't even aware you could manage to run C++ code in Android.

The exploit apparently involves running C++ libraries on an Android device and setting up low-level network sockets that expose the MAC address, before hashing and sending back to the mother ship. Presented here in section 4.2 of a Usenix paper.

This is some legit tech journalism from and . TikTok exploited an Android security hole and sniffed unchangeable device identifiers as a way to track users and undermine all privacy controls. Sketch! No normal app does this.
