Does he have the power to pull out of NATO, or is it just a stunt?

Apple Talk / Re: Malaysian Airlines plane shot down over Ukraine

This is coming a day after seeing a barrage of rockets supposedly fired from the Russian border into the Ukraine, though I can't find any solid sources to back it up. After hearing about the plane it sounds like things are heating up over there.

Being able to admit to yourself what your own motives are. (But on its own I guess that doesn't really help sociopaths.)

Apple Talk / Law of 5s Minor Incident #43383 - Pontypool
« on: January 06, 2013, 03:12:46 am »
This might not be super interesting, but I came across a guy who noticed that “Sandy Hook” is mentioned in the movie Pontypool, and believes that it’s an illuminati in-joke referencing the incident that happened recently.  (I hope you have adblock.)

He could have taken the time to check that the real village of Pontypool has a real road called Sandy Hook, (and then he might have argued that the book - Pontypool Changes Everything - was purposefully set there when it was written 18 years ago as some kind of long running joke,) but what is ironic, is that the movie is about the law of fives, mind viruses, and making nonsensical links with language:

What does it mean? Well, Norman Mailer, he had an interesting theory that he used to explain the strange coincidences in the aftermath of the JFK assassination. In the wake of huge events, after them and before them, physical details they spasm for a moment; they sort of unlock and when they come back into focus they suddenly coincide in a weird way. Street names and birth dates and middle names, all kind of superfluous things appear related to each other. It's a ripple effect. So, what does it mean? Well... it means something's going to happen. Something big. But then, something's always about to happen.

The Nine Lives of Tomas Katz (full movie @ youtube). It's incredible dadaist bullshit.

Here's a review of an abomination called Birdemic. Money shot at 9:32.

If these are the same elephants that were getting wasted last winter then I'm putting money on that fire being deliberate.

A Scientific Perspective
I must give full credit to

No conflicts of interest here. Nope. None.  :lulz:

This stuff preys on the fact that most people don't have the first clue about toxicology, epidemiological studies, and won't read the papers anyway. And it still amuses me that in the US you actually REDUCE water fluoride in areas where it's naturally high.

Wait until they discover that oxygen is a highly volatile element with cancer causing properties that can also give you lung damage (in high doses for prolonged periods, but that's besides the point apparently.)

This is all still harmless noise compared to the anti-vaccination propaganda, though.

It's been like 6 years since I saw it, but CNN were once bemoaning the fact that militants were filling their religious schools with children.

OMFG, cowards! You made us bomb teh childrens too!

It would be patronising to post this as a tip of what not to do, as it's more a case study of sheer sickening horror (assuming that it's not actually a troll (please be a troll)):

2. Don't put your fingers in her ears.

This should be self-explanatory.

I have one exception. I was in the noisy part of a club and couldn't hear anything. The girl I was with pushed the flappy part over the canal and could shout in my ear without it hurting. Genius and also thoughtful.

(Wasn't exactly a date, though.)

... and FarmVille. My brain still goes into shock when I get a Farmville invite from Hamish Howl. :D

The first rule of Farmville is, you must talk about Farmville.

And even so, when large groups of people go looking for something they sometimes end up discovering normal patterns on a large scale and panic about why it is happening. Anyone remember the dead fish and birds from a few years back?

Techmology and Scientism / Re: News from the LHC
« on: July 13, 2012, 02:10:58 pm »
When I heard about the Higgs field I was thinking that what was going on was similar but now I realise that what's actually going on, the bit that they're talking about at least, is at the quantum scale which doesn't seem to translate to "real world" macro stuff at all.

I remember a thread around here about The Secret and someone came up with the idea that everyone's wishes would cock-block each other so that nothing would actually come true. From my (admittedly facile) understanding of the trajectory of particles, they fuck with each other from all the way across the universe so that boring shit like light reflecting at the same angle as incidence becomes normal on a large scale. This is the hippy equivalent of Jesus being sent to Earth to pioneer a regulatory mandate for safer water treatment procedures.

I have it down as part of the Rise of the Algorithms.
        (  <--- One of my favourite TED talks.)

The system flags something based on a heuristic (of which we're inventing more all the time.) The receiver finds bypassing their better judgement ever easier. Before you know it Stephen Fry is paying for your legal fees over something absurd.

All the PC cats seem to be obsessed with Day Z, an open world survival game, and once again it's proof that humans are bad people.
