I think 3 things can be noted in Ferguson.

1. Social justice has gone off the deep end, Wilson did nothing wrong. (2 pt penalty for ambiguous language and assuming facts before you have them, even if the ref's probabilities are leaning in the direction of no indictment.)

2. I don't want the cops having bigger guns than me. Which is why I bought a Howitzer

3. Cold is the natural enemy to riots. They waited till winter to release the verdict. We have some smart people in our government.

 :lol: 8/10

Wilson is the great Hitler of our time.
Killing someone who deserves it and being ridiculed by Marxists.

Wilson did nothing wrong.
He din du nuthin.

Did this on Pixlr.com. Couldn't quite get the red to match.

Neat site. If you use the "editor" (left most app, similar to photoshop), there is a Filter > Hope option that spits out a nice 3 tone effect.

Yeah, like that and the predator drone one. I'd maybe even like it better if it were 'posterized'. Hmmmm.

The US justice department is reportedly using electronic equipment on aircraft to simulate cellphone towers so it can collect phone location and identifying information on a mass scale from users on the ground below.


The allegations, reported in the Wall Street Journal late on Thursday, suggest that the US Marshals Service has for seven years flown Cessna aircraft outfitted with “dirtbox” devices that mimic cellular towers, permitting the collection of thousands of unique IDs and location data from users.


According to the Journal the planes operate from at least five metropolitan airports, permitting a “flying range covering most of the US population”.


The reportedly indiscriminate collection would permit the marshals and potentially other justice department agencies to avoid having to seek records from the phone companies themselves, especially in criminal investigations where a court order may be required.

The legal basis for the previously undisclosed program is unclear. It is not reportedly a national security or counterterrorism program, but instead used to target crime. The justice department is said to have modified the equipment so as not to interfere with 911 emergency calls.

U.S. veterans sue banks, claim they should pay for Iraq attacks
BY ALISON FRANKEL

Reuters) - Wounded U.S. veterans and family members of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq sued five European banks on Monday, seeking to hold them responsible for shootings and roadside bombings because they allegedly processed Iranian money that paid for the attacks.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, New York, named Barclays Plc, Credit Suisse Group AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and Standard Chartered.

Barclays, Credit Suisse, RBS and Standard Chartered declined to comment. HSBC did not respond to requests for comment.

The lawsuit was brought under the U.S. Anti-Terrorism Act, a 1992 law that permits victims to bring private suits against alleged financiers of militant operations.

The lawsuit alleges the banks conspired with Iranian banks to mask wire transactions in order to evade U.S. sanctions. The Iranian banks then funneled more than $100 million to militant groups that operated in Iraq at Iran's direction, according to the suit.

The militant groups included a Shi'ite militia in Iraq, Kataib Hezbollah, as well as Quds Force, the overseas arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the suit says.

Since 2009, the five banks have agreed to pay about $3.2 billion to the U.S. government to resolve allegations that they handled money in violation of sanctions against nations such as Iran, Libya and Cuba. All the banks signed deferred prosecution agreements with the U.S. Justice Department in addition to settlements with U.S. banking regulators.

My girlfriend learned cranial "sacral" massage while in accredited massage school in Oregon. No woo attached. No "guessing" why it "worked".

Simply "here are the techniques to safely massage the skull muscles" and "oh, btw the skull bones aren't 'static' like the impression you got every skeleton model you've seen, they're all gently joined by cartilage, etc, and get out of position sometimes, so be careful of how you deal with that".

Very well said.

Think about how incredibly complex the simple screw driver is. It is a tool used to drive other tools into and out of surfaces. The other tools (screws) are two other tools (the inclined plane wrapped around the axle). You also have to be able to abstract it again, though time, and realize that giving each screw it's own handle is silly, so you need to be able to carry one handle around with you. You then have to conceptualize the materials and docking/locking mechanism used to make the handledriver/screw one unit while in action, but easily separable. This now allows you to develop multiple different screws that can all be driven using the same tool.


Man, hominids are smart fuckers (the screwdriver tool-set nearly rivals the rock-napping toolset in complexity). Wtf happened to our species.
