Now they need to test it's effects on computer programming and kung-fu

I doubt if any dose of alcohol would improve my computer programming skills.

However, “a low dose of alcohol” may slightly improve ones martial arts skills. If it works for one, it does so by slightly lowering inhibitions, and by providing a small energy boost.

On the other hand, one of the master level guys in my school used to always smoke a doobie before coming into class. Over many, many years, I only saw one occasion where the weed had a negative effect on his abilities. (And, those few of us that knew his “training regime” all agreed that that had to have been some super primo stuff.)

Aneristic Illusions / Re: ITT we summon RWHN

Except, as the article notes:

Quote
Legal experts said forcing defendants to work for free might violate their constitutional rights. The 13th Amendment bans slavery and involuntary servitude in the United States, except as punishment for convicts. That’s why prison labor programs are legal. But many defendants sent to programs such as CAAIR have not yet been convicted of crimes, and some later have their cases dismissed.

Anyway, I mostly bring it up because RWHN always said he preferred addiction treatment to prison, when it sounds like the two aren't very different at all.

Well it certainly doesn't sound like Club Med.

let's just begin with the beginning and go from there. The roots of this whole Global Warming hoax:

http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/social/papers/paper_townsend.pdf

behold a document drafted by the UN itself in 2001 which explicitly warns that it not even be quoted without permission.

The document itself discusses options for financing the UN's global anti poverty initiatives which have been grossly underfunded because wealthy nations won't bother to contribute, despite public pledges. It basically reads like "what do we do?"


Scroll down to page 3.

The Zedillo Report.

The Zedillo Report was the product of a UN panel set up under Kofi Anon to identify options to the voluntary financing schemes that had thus far proven inadequate. And it's conclusions were that the UN's anti poverty programs could be financed either by effecting a Tobin Tax on global transactions or a carbon tax.

The Carbon Tax was the preferred option (page 4) because it was considered "politically more realistic" and because it could be justified as "making polluters pay".

NO MENTION OF GLOBAL WARMING. Efforts to commence the carbon tax are still underway in the form of the Kyoto, Doha, Paris agreements and amendments.

As the campaign to convince wealthy nations to contribute to the UN's war on poverty programs the UN ramped up the IPCC to build a scientific case for applying this tax (for poverty relief) to carbon consumers who were aggrevating alleged global warming.

The IPCC, as everybody knows is a UN body and is the primary driver of global warming study and hysteria.

6/10 Work in some refrences to chemtrails, the Freemasons, ancient aliens, and Hillary Clinton

Speaking seriously for a moment. That's hardly a smoking gun. At best it maybe establishes motive, which while admittedly better than most global warming denialist conspiracy theories is a far cry from proving or even seriously suggesting anything. In particular it offers no explanation for why the only scientists who disagree with the existence of global warming either have severe conflicts of interest or else specialize in completely unrelated fields and are thus unqualified to speak on the matter,

Some sort of story (or possibly a Borges-esque pseudo-academic-paper) based on the idea that there is only one soul that moves backward and forward in time between reincarnations like Feynman's single electron hypothesis. It gets sent back to primitive bible times after lives of wickedness and forward to future utopias after good lives.

A vampire horror movie or novel using only unconvemtional vampire traits and no standard ones. ie. They sparkle in sunlight (Twlight), they live in hives (Priest), they feed not on blood itself but on the color red (Adventure Time), there's a thunderclap whenever they finish counting something (Sesame Street), but no garlic vulnerability, no lack of reflection, etc.
They glow in the dark, have only one nostril, their feet are on backwards, and they can only prey upon blood relations?

Where are those from?

“Dutch Courage: Alcohol Improves Foreign Language Skills”

Quote
A new study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, conducted by researchers from the University of Liverpool, Maastricht University and King’s College London, shows that bilingual speakers’ ability to speak a second language is improved after they have consumed a low dose of alcohol.

Here’s the link: http://neurosciencenews.com/alcohol-foreign-language-skills-7759/

So, my belief that my ability to speak French improves after a glass of pinot noir may actually be true!
