For this weeks #WTFWednesdays, let's jump into #hysteria

1/ The concept of "hysteria" has a long and troubled history in psychiatry. It dates back to ancient Greece and was initially used to describe a wide range of physical and mental symptoms in women.
2/ "Hysteria" comes from the Greek word "hystera," meaning uterus, reflecting the historical belief that women's mental & physical symptoms were related to the uterus and its movements. This belief led to the notion that women's symptoms could be "cured" by removing the uterus.
3/ Over the centuries, the diagnosis of hysteria was used to blame women for their own suffering and pathologize normal emotions and behaviors. This led to a widespread belief that women were inherently unstable and prone to mental illness.

Let's talk cybersecurity #jokes while we still can.

You probably don't take on a company like @McAfee or a person like @CybersecuritySF like *I* do. But most of you DO enjoy a joke that uses #sarcasm, #burlesque, #irony, and/or #satire to make its point……

From #PepeEscobar, @telegram, 3 June 2022.

One of the ongoing debates in OilWorld: How much spare capacity remains in the system to produce oil at additional levels, globally, in case of emergency?

Answer: it’s running out & there ain’t no more!

#PeakOil is back! ⛽️ ✈️ 🚗
Let us not forget the words of the late, great Matthew Simmons (paraphrasing): “Once Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 has peaked, then the world has effectively peaked.”

Ergo, there’s no spare capacity to offset banned / boycotted Ru oil. Ergo, global oil mkt = sellers mkt now.

The above piece via Pepe Escobar states that there is now declining spare capacity in #KSA 🇸🇦 due to declining investment in #oil extraction tech.

It’s actually the other way around: there’s now declining investment b/c there’s no new profitable 🇸🇦 oil to be had. #PeakOil

Let's talk cybersecurity.

I seldom jump on the "Luddites vs. Tech" bandwagon because I wish to remain focused on alleviating #hysteria. This is why I only railed for things e.g. #heuristics: it slashed the fearmongering.

Here, though, we see a...…
...human conflict dating back to when Paul wrote (dictated?) Romans 8:18-21.

Look, I get it: you want to save lives on the battlefield.

But that's from *your* perspective.

Military leaders on ALL sides suffer an ages-old problem.

They once preferred bows & arrows over guns; then they preferred horse-drawn artillery over tanks; and now they prefer manned aircraft over drones.

"Cyber" to them is a soldier with a laser pointer guiding a JDAM...

Most #cryptocurrency exchange owners and #newschannels in #India seem to be pretty much clueless about what the exact definition of a private cryptocurrency is.

Thread continued👇
This confusion and chaos has been driven by the recent #hysteria about the government apparently confused whether to do a #cryptoban or #regulatecrypto.
All those news articles that sprung up about the #fakeban, initially were based upon this generic understanding that all #cryptocurrencies are private in nature.

I will now fully defend @jonathanreiber's assertion.

Notice his key phrase: "a measurable economic impact on the American population."

This measurement derives from the fact #ColonialPipeline itself chose to shut down its operations "out of an abundance of caution"...
2/11 we can rightly say "computer security #hysteria led to a measurable economic impact on the American population."

But ... have there been UN-measured impacts?


I can cite my hilarious audio column from exactly 20 years ago today:
I consider it a first -- a true first! -- that we can measure a real economic impact from computer security #hysteria.

Now we have a cyber attack on the world's largest meat supplier. And it won't surprise me if @JBSCareers shuts down all operations "as a precaution."

Dear @RobManess,

Some of your followers will remember me from the 1990s "Computer Virus Myths homepage" and 2000s "Vmyths" site.

In this short thread I'll reveal why the #ColonialPipeline "cyberwar attack" is in fact COMPLETE HYSTERIA…
Both Clinton in 1998 and Obama in 2009 hyped up cyber attacks similar to what we saw with #ColonialPipeline. "[Criminals] extort money by threats to unleash computer viruses…"

Clinton & Obama used their hype to issue flawed executive orders—

—just like Biden.
And now #ColonialPipeline has openly admitted THEY pinched our nation's feeding tube. No cyber terrorist did it!

They shut down the flow of oil as a #precaution when a cyber-mugger told their Billing dept. to "gimme all your bitcoins":

Let's talk cybersecurity #hysteria.

Four days ago, Chris Krebs confirmed cyber terrorists had remotely shut down the east coast's lifeblood.

His tweet is why I fueled my pickup that very day with $140 of diesel at $2.67/gal at Dodge's gas station on Rt 49 in Gulfport MS.
Cybersecurity #hysteria has done amazing things over the last three decades.

And I do mean "amazing"!

It led us the knee-jerk idea for a "precautionary disconnect," which is when we shut down our operations to prevent a computer attack from shutting down our operations.
Of course we now know it was #ColonialPipeline who shut down their own operations, not the cyber terrorists--

--because they don't trust their own cyber security team.

And why should they?

I've railed for two decades on the *true* purpose a CISO serves to a company:

1/ A very compelling story about how #Women's #Pain & especially #Black women's pain is dismissed and disregarded by the healthcare system.…
2/ The story begins with a woman with sickle cell & her horrifying experience in the hospital. It also discusses pain from syndrome's unique to women, like endometriosis or fibroids.
3/ Pain is a feminist issue. #PainToo must be believed. First, there is the dismissal of women's accounts of their own bodies, tracing to a history of dismissal of symptoms due to absurd misconceived views of #Hysteria in women. Trans folks get the same treatment, or worse.

Thread. Medical Hysteria and #InternationalWomensDay

In 1882, Anna O is considered 'patient zero' for the diagnosis of "Hysteria"

#Hysteria was originally a diagnosis only given to women

Anna O fell ill in 1880 after her father died, possibly of Tuberculosis
2. Her symptoms: severe 'nervous' #cough, paralysis, numbness, vision/hearing/speech disturbances, hallucinations, #cognitive difficulties

She was diagnosed with "Hysteria" by Breuer and Freud in ~1882

3. Breuer claimed that he cured Anna O of #Hysteria using 'talking out' therapy (a very early forerunner to #psychotherapy)

His claim was false
