usa may kick the bucket in the near future

Thread named "How to minimize one's damage in case the usa kicks the bucket?" is available on gmane and cpunks. The comments do not suggest bright future.
On twitlonger in July 2015 AnonyÓðinn predicts that the IMF meeting starting today likely will include the Chinese yuan in the basket of currencies and
- The US dollar would likely decline in value significantly, but with the system overleveraged as to credit as it is at present, there will be be an inability for people to withdraw (similar to what we see currently in Greece in terms of lines in front of the ATMs).

The usa government debt about $12.8T is just the top of the debt iceberg.

Cheers windows admins, did the "Weird garbled Windows 7 update" contains message TO microsoft?

According to comments on arstechnica m$ signed the weird update containing .gov/.mil/.edu URLs with, well, ``their'' real signing keys.
Looks like someone is making jokes with microsoft and according to a theory of mine, the ``garbage text'' might be some obfuscation/ASCII? friendly cypher. Certainly sufficiently long OTP will decrypt it to whatever, but short key/deobfuscation is against the odds.
The garbage text is on reddit
If you manage to find short decryption key/deobfuscation, please share with the unwashed masses.

Cheers windows admins, "Weird garbled Windows 7 update"?

Cheers windows admins...
Looks like microsoft got owned.
From theregister: Weird garbled Windows 7 update baffles world – now Microsoft reveals the truth
Windows 7 users were left scratching their heads on Wednesday when a
mysterious garbled patch appeared in Windows Update, origins unknown.
Its description mostly contained garbled text. Links for more
information, help, and support were filled in with gibberish URLs with
".gov," ".mil," and ".edu" domains.
The Register poked Microsoft about the issue, and a spokesman told us:
"We incorrectly published a test update and are in the process of
removing it."
So m$ "test updates" contain .gov/.mil/.edu URLs?, lol
