Are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? To visit a surreal world, where black is white and white is carrots?

A friend, Metacognician in Shanghai, describes the situation as follows: “Life is more absurd than movies. I've gone down the rabbit hole too, when it just becomes more and more strange and you wonder how that all is supposed to make sense.” I asked him if I should just embrace it. He answered, “Why should you ... change the universe?”

It started with a psychotic named Jim Kiraly who resides, we think, at 6329 Twinberry Circle, Avila Beach, California.

Jim Kiraly is a respected citizen. A churchgoer. A Vice President of Transamerica Corporation. And a violent abuser who tried to use an emergency anti-violence measure, one intended to protect battered women, to stop his victim in a wheelchair from writing a book.

Concise enough? :)

For attorneys: Jim Kiraly filed for CLETS against his son and victim, who lived 200 miles away, did not own a car, and was in a wheelchair. His son and victim was not asked to end communications. Jim had no (zero) specific and relevant allegations that were not perjury. But he turned down repeated offers of no-contact and a signed stipulation that gave him everything but CLETS. He insisted on CLETS if his victim ever once “discussed” him with third parties.

In the end, Jim Kiraly signed an agreement far weaker than the ones he'd been offered.

A review of Court paperwork and other materials will tend to confirm that Jim and other parties, including attorneys on all sides, committed multiple felonies, crimes, and faux pas. :P

The word “abuser” is stated here publicly and without equivocation. A formal offer is hereby made to reaffirm the word in writing and under oath. Attorneys will understand the significance of the point. In short, there is little terror of a threatened defamation suit on this side. Actually, we feel that such a suit will fit nicely up Jim Kiraly's abuser ass.

Jim has one son, Ken Kiraly, who invented the Amazon Kindle and is one of the leads at Amazon's secret Lab126. Another son, Tom Kiraly is one of the leads, a Vice President-CFO type, at medical insurance firms, including one of the largest, Humana Corporation.

These people and some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley legal circles have committed or are involved in multiple crimes.

For the next decade or two, we're going to explore the crimes that these people committed, the motivations and the denial involved, the background and histories that led each person to make the choices that they did, and ways to build upon what happened and move towards positive societal goals.

There's plenty to go over. These people committed or were involved in: Spousal abuse, child abuse, DDOS (a highly prosecutable violation of CFAA), extortion, perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury (a possible felony), false police reports, conspiracy to file false police reports (a possible felony), unlawful threats, barratry, defamation, malpractice, civil harassment, criminal harassment, abuse of process, and violations of SCCBA Professional Standards.

The point was to force Jim's oldest son and victim, me, to sign a gag order. I was in a wheelchair. I'd never made a single inappropriate threat against my abuser. I wasn't even asked to not to call anybody. But Jim threatened to put me in a violence database unless I agreed never to write about him.

I won the right to write, but I lost my home of 25 years, most of my possessions, my chances for retirement, everything. Everything but a realization.

I can make a difference. I can conduct research for legitimate and reasonable purposes, document what happened, and analyze the choices of the people involved:

Maggie told me that she didn't know what she could say to me about what happened. However, we have decades to work it out. It will be productive. I'd like to direct the attention of attorneys and other parties to the:

<WardPlunet> Child maltreatment linked to mental and physical health disorders in later life

<BoldCoder> Not too surprising. It stays with you in more ways than one.

<zaibatsu> “One person with a belief is equal to a force of ninety-nine who have only interests.” —Peter Marshall

<BoldCoder> Agreed. I've got the ninety nine; see my site. But I'm going to be the one. This quote gets saved.

<sweetfoodie> Most kids don't tell they're bullied — top reasons: humiliation, fear retaliation, say tips don't work.

<BoldCoder> Autistic kids sometimes don't understand what they're supposed to do. Even if they're physically injured.

<wilw> Because there will never be a time in your life when you say, “I wish I'd spent less time with people I love, and more time shopping.”

<BoldCoder> Love? or loved? Sometimes things change. There are people I'd trade for one good trip to Fry's Electronics. Or Kepler's Books.

<conscioususer> One of the advantages of coding a project alone is suddenly changing coding standards without worrying that someone will want to kill me.

<BoldCoder> One is consensus. You can be Cathedral and Bazaar at the same time.

<daeken> I wonder how I can monetize my blog posts. They require considerable effort and give a lot of value, I believe. Ransom model?

<BoldCoder> You're supposed to sell T-shirts or some such nonsense. I still say leverage the toys. Be the one who takes them mainstream.

121120. Just some tweets from Monday and Tuesday. The poem has been extended.

<autismfather> Bacon & eggs on the grill this morning, teriyaki chicken in the crock pot for dinner... if I have to be alone, I'm going to enjoy it.

In the mood for food
Things old and new
Go in the stew
Eggs from hen
Hen herself too
Eat and enjoy
Then you won't be blue

<demingSoS> “I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places.” Henny Youngman #joke

<BoldCoder> I believe Rodney Dangerfield used similar lines. Does anybody know if this was a tribute to Youngman? Searches are inconclusive.

<demingSoS> It does sound like something Dangerfield would say. :)

<Swizec> I made $730 by selling an unfinished book for 3 days.

<BoldCoder> Seriously, I'm rethinking how to approach my current book. Will you discuss some of the mechanics? I'll trade you a closer review.


Sunday 2012-11-18 — Tweets are Neats

121118. Just some tweets from Saturday and Sunday. Minor edits to save space.

<autismfather> What to say and not say to a parent that has a child with #Autism...

<OldCoder> I'd add that it isn't the child's fault for not praying hard enough or not “taking responsibility” for being different.

<Swizec> Spurred on by @oldcoder's positive remarks, today is a good day for writing. Rewritten a whole chapter in just over an hour.

<BoldCoder> Actually I'm @boldcoder here and not @oldcoder. Congratulations on progress. I'll look at the draft further this week.

<Swizec> “This book has 99 readers!” \o/ this is going better than anticipated.

<BoldCoder> Are they reading it at night? Disclaimer: Inside joke

<Swizec> Holy crap, I made $408 in royalties in the first 14 hours of sales # of an unfinished book.

<BoldCoder> Good sign, When time permits, I'll post a Kiraly Cases book. Yours isn't controversial and it's moving. Mine has bizarre situations.

<demingSoS> “As a good rule, profound knowledge comes from the outside, and by invitation. A system can not understand itself”

<BoldCoder> Isn't this just one of several ways he's said this? Is there a justification for the assertion? Gödel Incompleteness?

<demingSoS> “Gödel Incompleteness” Could you please elaborate on this?

<BoldCoder> Crucial math theorem which may imply models of mind that are subject to limitations on self awareness. Debatable but interesting.

<WardPlunet> Flowers after the rain. Yes it even rains in Palo Alto sometimes.

<BoldCoder> You're located here? Not sure what you mean. There's rain here. Puddles outside now. I think I'll go for a walk and splash one.

<WardPlunet> Just moved down here for 3 months, and was so impressed by the weather and the 'rain shadow' so had to comment that it still...

<BoldCoder> Nice flower photo BTW

<WardPlunet> :) I am enjoying it down here in your area.

<BoldCoder> Eat at Armadillo Willys and Hometown Buffet. Browse at Keplers and Know Knew Books. Frys Electronics for fun stuff. Lots more.

<WardPlunet> Thanks for the local tips!

<BoldCoder> Sure. Feel free to drop me a line before you leave. If I'm still in the area we'll do lunch.

<WardPlunet> Will do. Thanks.

<CompSciFact> 'So much complexity in software comes from trying to make one thing do two things.' -- Ryan Singer

<BoldCoder> Is it wrong to ask // For multitask // Two can run // As cheaply as one

<Swizec> My book is taunting me to write moar

<BoldCoder> Then moar you shall roar

<randomdrake> Per aspera ad astra. Thanks @BoldCoder.

<BoldCoder> I learned the other wording about 40 years ago. But Ad Astra is the important part. Metaphorically. Someday perhaps literally.

<Swizec> Non-hiring practices. He recommends telling job applicants clearly whether they've been accepted or rejected.

<BoldCoder> I've mentioned in the channel I did some recruiting in 2011. I phoned every person to discuss the issue. Anything else seemed wrong.

<Swizec> @BoldCoder in my experience almost nobody does this.

<BoldCoder> O.K. Not sure of your point. The principal figure seemed dubious but the engineers were appreciative. It was common courtesy.
