Start your week off right with ten minutes of blurry, oddly moving shapes in the margins of photos and video shot by astronauts and cosmonauts. Side note: what’s with all conspiracy videos requiring a battering techno soundtrack? Can I blame The Matrix?
Am I the only one that thinks Muammar al-Qaddafi and Michael Jackson look like the same person? I mean, add 20 pounds and a limp and you’re basically there. Oh and a pulse. And a crack team of lady bodyguards. Really. MQ? Sleeps in a tent. MJ? Slept in a tent. Face like wood putty? Check. Rambling conspiracy theories, a love for costumes and radical decisions prompted by financial troubles? Check, check and check. Two men, two vast reservoirs of ego and paranoia swirling around in big piles of money, leaking weird gibberish across the land. Only natural that they’d have the same tailor, eh? But what if it was more than that? What if Michael Jackson, hounded by his debts and public reputation, entered in a secret pact with mysterious Libyan nationals to support a clandestine coup, a neat little switch that whisked the real Qaddafi off the pedestal […]
According to Faisal Shahzad’s resume he has a background in finance and has the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. The Daily News reports that he is 30 years old. Curiously a YouTube user going as fshahzad1 last signed on 6 months and says in his profile he’s 29. This YouTube user commented on the video “Peter Schiff vs the Federal Reserve – LIVE! – Part 1 of 5” the following: “oh we still have dollar? I thought we were done with it in 2001, who owns FED RES, 300 people. not US GOV” Maybe another user who also has the same username of “fshahzad1”– however given the users age, Google/GMail/YouTube Accounts are often the same username, and this video’s subject of finance it seems we are dealing with the same Faisal Shahzad. A man who interestingly enough shared values with Conservatives, Libertarians, Tea Partiers, and Ron Paul supporters that seemingly in American […]
In summary: the media is a vast jabbering mouth screaming all the ways you will die in terrible pain and loneliness. Why the hell would we let a wretched creature like that in the room? Well, because maybe, just maybe, it might finally cough up a scrap of truth. And we’re wired to hang onto that hope. I recommend you embrace doom, joyfully.
Two, count ’em two, UFO sightings occured in my very own backyard of North Brooklyn. One in Williamsburg and one in Bushwick. Obviously the out-of-towners from another world dig skinny jeans, art projects, and indie music.
“Give me half a tanker of iron and I will give you an ice age.” — Russ George Russ George in the volume 18 issue of Make magazine says he has a solution for global warming. His plan sounds like a deus ex machina solution for our global warming problems: get some iron (0.5 micron hematite), drop it in the ocean, spread at the right times and places, plankton eats iron, plankton grows, and global warming and dying fish go bye-bye. He has also written a Google Knol article (yes, someone uses Google Knol) on the subject as well. His company, Plantoks Science bills themselves as a “privately held ecorestoration and ocean biotechnology company” though this sounds like “MacGyver style fix to global warming.” Science to the rescue or psuedo-science fraud?
One of the often touted “the Moon landing was a hoax” statements is “how come the Hubble telescope can’t get a picture of the equipment?” When in reality that makes as much sense as using a microscope to take a photo of a friend. Hubble is designed to look deep into space, not on the moon or some chick’s apartment. Different lenses, different uses. Well, in honor of the 40th anniversary of when man was on the moon NASA released an image from LROC showing not only the hardware left behind from Apollo but experimental gear and even the footprints of astronauts. So there.
Supposedly this is video from a snakecam in a North Carolina sewer that shows a new (or undiscovered) lifeform. The video shows what appear to be blobs pulsating and moving. Though many questions remain. Holy crap. At least that’s what I hope it isn’t. I may not have received my Cryptozoology merit badge in Boy Scouts but I am skeptical. Who took this video? Why was the camera in the sewer? Where is this in North Carolina? Extraordinary calims require extraordinary evidence. But I do have one more question: what the hell is it? Update: Actually its a “bag of worms” or bryozoans according to the News & Observer newspaper. These animals live in colonies so what we see in the video is actually many of them finding food and going on with daily business. They develop an external shell known as a cystid to protect them which we see […]
From All News Web: Barack Obama is in almost daily contact with SETI and is communicating with the aliens directly. The aliens indirectly contributed to the development of internet search engines and they are in limited contact with Google through SETI. They are able to access the internet currently and their involvement in search engine research is for the purpose of allowing them to understand as much about earth as possible prior to their next arrival. Awesome. Not only is Barack Obama in constant contact with them but they both contribute and learn from the Internet. Just keep that in mind whenever you spread a meme: cultural emissaries from several light years away will be basing every picture of a cat as what it means to be human.
