A couple of sources have referred to him as a "green fuel marketer".

Here's an important question... is it "see-rup" or "sur-rup"?

Sur-rup of course. Only godless southerners use "see-rup".

In unrelated news about Italy.

A study of psychotropic drug levels in ambient air from eight Italian cities found background levels of cocaine, cannabinoids - the active ingredients in marijuana - nicotine and caffeine in every urban centre.

Turin had the highest concentrations of cocaine, says Angelo Cecinato at the Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research in Rome. Meanwhile, Bologna and Florence had some of the highest cannabinoid levels, which Cecinato attributes to the large student populations in the two cities.

Belgian police have imposed a news blackout after Nicholas Mockford, 60, was shot as he left an Italian restaurant in Neder-over-Heembeek, a suburb of the capital.

The executive was shot three times, once as he lay on the ground, after leaving the Da Marcello restaurant in Rue de Beyseghem at around 10pm on Oct 14.

His wife, Mary, was left beaten and covered in blood. Mr Mockford died on the way to hospital.

Witnesses said they saw the couple walk across the street to their car, a silver Lexus 4x4, before shots were fired.

The attack was said to have happened very quickly and Mrs Mockford was left cradling her husband in the street, shouting for help. According to reports, two men were seen running away carrying a motorcycle helmet.

What I dont get is how the assassins found the time to beat up his wife in such a short period of time. You think you would either shoot the witnesses or high tail it the fuck out of there.

Since his father's sudden death, reports have surfaced that Kim Jong-un has been purging the North Korean military of "unsound elements" in order to tighten his grip on power.

It's not a new policy; Kim Jong-il executed plenty of his father's advisors and dissenters after Kim Il-sung passed away in 1994.

What is new is that Kim Jong-un is using mortar rounds to execute individual officers instead of a firing squad, according to reports from South Korean media.

Kim Jong-un allegedly asked loyal officials to get rid of "anyone caught misbehaving during the mourning period for Kim Jong-il."

Kim Chol, the North Korean vice-defense minister, was reportedly caught "drinking and carousing" in January, a month after Kim Jong-il died.

Intelligence data submitted to the lawmaker Yoon Sang-hyun, a member of the National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs, Trade and Unification Committee, claimed that Chol was executed by firing squad.

But a source inside the South Korean government said that Kim Jong-un ordered those carrying out the sentence to leave  "no trace of him behind, down to his hair."

My hope is that this will lead to a legal precedent by which weathermen can be held responsible for water damage when they fail to predict rain.

that demands some explanation

Life's tough, wear a hat.

yeah.. a hat, and a fucking kevlar sweatsuit (w/ skimask)

Im too lazy right now to dig back into this thread and get any context on this shit. So all Im gonna say is I just left a thread where Hirley0 was talking about Russia and Electrons and that made FAR more sense than any of the shit you are spouting right now.

A Pink Philosophy Professor was teaching a class. "As I have clearly demonstrated the universe is entirely ORDERLY. Not a bit of chaos in it." At this moment, a brave HIMEOBS soldier stood up, holding a rock. "How old is this rock, professor?" The arrogant professor smirked smugly and replied "5.8 trizillion years you stupid Discordian" "Wrong. Its been 5,000 years since Eris fossilized this chicken. If you are right and everything really is orderly... then it should still be an animal now." The professor was visibly butthurt. he dropped his chalk and stormed out of the classroom. The students applauded and all joined the facebook discordian group. Roger, in eagle form, flew into the room and perched atop the American Flag and excreted a single turd on the chalk. The flag waves til this day, despite the fact that the building was demolished. 23 Skiddoo.

Ok, so how did the left get all the lazy cowards?

What I mean is, if it's a two-man con, why does one side get a larger share of ineffectual fuckups?

Part of it could be just having more money and support. People who are good at controlling the narrative like Frank Luntz and Lee Atawater are the types who dont really have any values other than making money. Im sure if left leaning groups had access to the kinds of media exposure and spin doctoring the right has the situation would be very different.

And if you want to get a little tinfoilish, Tragedy and Hope claims that:

More than fifty years ago, the Morgan firm decided to infiltrate the Left-wing political movements of the United States. This was relatively easy to do since these groups were starved for funds and eager for a voice to reach the people. Wall Street supplied both. The purpose was not to destroy, dominate or take over but was really three-fold:

1) to keep informed about the Left-wing or liberal groups;

2) to provide them with a mouthpiece so they could blow off steam;

3) to have a final "veto" on their actions if they ever went radical. There was nothing really new about this decision, since other financiers had talked about it and even attempted it earlier.

The best example of the alliance of Wall Street and Left-wing publication was "The New Republic" a magazine founded in 1914 by Willard Straight using Payne Whitney money. The original purpose for establishing the paper was to provide an outlet for the progressive Left and to guide it in an Anglophile direction. This latter task was entrusted to Walter Lippmann.

The hypertext in the article that was supposed to explain "liberalism trembling in the face of iliberalism" took me to this:

Um, Iran isn't a "semi-developed" country.  The literacy rate is 97% among young adults (aged between 15 and 24) without any gender discrepancy.  Their universities annually graguate about 750,000 people.  Women make up to almost 60% of the university population.  31% of its grads are in engineering, one of the highest in the world.

In short, your anti-Persian bias is showing.

Sorry, point taken. I wasnt assuming they were idiots, I was just kind of assuming that these weapons took huge well paid teams of computer nerds working in shifts to make. And  then assuming, wrongly, that Iran didnt have the money or manpower to pull that off.

You're making quite an assumption there, PGIII.

Yeah, just woke up and my brain is taking a little while to warm up.

If it was Iran, how did they develop them? Did someone give them the weapons?

If Iran managed to develop cyberweapons doesn't that say something about how easy it is to make them? Pretty much any semi-developed country could make them. And if I recall the "cyber war games" from two years ago, our current defense against cyberweapons is to unplug our computers, and I doubt other countries have much better weapons.

So everyone has/can easily get cyber-weapons, these weapons have no real countermeasure and its extremely hard to figure out who fired the shot when an attack is made. Well this should be fun.

And I still haven't watched a single episode of The Big Bang Theory.  I don't feel like I'm missing out, though.

I watched five minutes of it. I turned it off when they played a laugh track after a character said "Hello." No joke, just "Hello."

Just in case you need some crazy:

""Representative Paul Broun (Georgia Republican) said that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are 'lies straight from the pit of hell' meant to convince people that they do not need a savior. It would not be quite as shocking if Broun did not sit on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology"

Geez. If you don't like a tv show, you don't have to watch it.  :wink:
