Jupiter got smacked… again. We didn’t see it coming this time, as we (well, a couple of us, anyway: Shoemaker and Levy) did in 1994. That one was spectacular, as a chain of glowing bodies rat-a-tat-tatted against Jupiter over quite a bit of time. This one was unseen: the impactor (whatever it was) wasn’t glowing […]
The language we speak - ‘we’ meaning me and those who are reading this - is called “English”.
I’m writing this because of a recent incident, caused by my inability to have complete control over my anger. In essence, and without naming any names (to protect the stupid) here’s what happened: I had tried several […]
Why do you carry a combination bug and tracking device around with you wherever you go?
Unwarranted Intrusion: GPS and the Fourth Amendment | American Constitution Society is an article about a form of surveillance that most people seem to be unaware of.
Let me start by saying this as clearly and concisely as I can: YOUR […]
I’m a little peeved about… no, wait - let me be completely honest about this: I’m not a little peeved, I’m seriously pissed off about - the “gotcha’s” that computer companies try to cram down our throats.
I’ve seen these twice today, and the second one has been thrown in my face three or four […]
… “computer-mediated telepathy”??? Hmmmm… this doesn’t involve having a “chip” injected into your ass (oh, sorry… was that your head?), by any chance? What was it ol’ Tim McVeigh said about the butt-chip the Army gave him?
Pentagon Preps Soldier Telepathy Push
“Forget the battlefield radios, the combat PDAs or even infantry hand signals.
When the soldiers of […]
One of the most interesting web sites about the so-called Income Tax that I’ve come across is that of a lawyer in Shreveport.
To see what he’s got, start here.
As near as I can tell, he was charged with criminal activities for not filing/paying (both? or which one?) his duly-owed income taxes. It’s been a […]
WHIGO? That’s the question. One place you can look for answers is http://www.prouty.org/ - a website dedicated to Fletcher Prouty, a man who came into a certain amount of prominence following the JFK murder, when he did some whistle-blowing… well, if not actual whistle-blowing, then at least the kind of nervous whistling you might […]
I am not one of those people (see? “those”, not “these”… is the unconscious truthful, or what???) who “visualize” easily, clearly, or even very well at all.
I know (okay, I don’t “know”, but I “hear”, or “read”) that there are people who can summon up images at will of faces, places, things… but I am […]
Somewhere, I’ve written the story - more than once - about that phrase, “What’cha Gonna DO?”, and my response to it. It is the single most memorable thing I ever heard Richard Pryor say. He was quoting his friend Jim Brown talking to him about his cocaine addiction… over and over, regardless of what excuse […]
One of my friends sent me email with a link to this:
Red Alert: Possible Geopolitical Consequences of the Mumbai Attacks
Ignore that blather.
Let me tell you what the real immediate consequences are.
India will be blessed with its very own Bureau of Fatherland Sekkkurity, which will immediately constitute a new, improved Federal Police as well as a […]
