potpourri pile-up

I just had too many windows open with stuff I was thinking about saying about each. I long to just reboot and get a pristine clean slate. Of computer. Of mind. If those are separate entities anymore.
An American CIA contractor who shot and killed two Pakistani men was released from prison Wednesday and left Pakistan after more than $2 million in "blood money" was paid to his victims' families....
It always comes down to this kind of math when the people are in abjection to crushing poverty.
"He is a perfect specimen," said Mr Lu, who runs the Tibetan Mastiff Garden in Laoshan, near the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao. "He has excellent genes and will be a good breeding dog.
I dare you not to do the math....
Candidates will only be referred for a compulsory work placement if a Jobcentre Plus adviser believes they are deliberately avoiding trying to get a job or would benefit from getting into the ‘habits and routines’ of getting up every morning.
Field day for bureaucrats....

Good map....

Look at this as wiring for the pushbuttons....

Preparedness....

Pernicious reportage under a deceptive banner equals mass hypnosis....

Guess who's drilling near a great spot for the next catastrophe....

Earthquakes and Extreme Weather....

All Reactors Are Nuclear Bombs....


I may be adding to this... or I may go off on a completely different set of tangents. Who can ever tell anymore?

    First report of this one I've seen, and it was from the 13th!

  4. Doncha just love it? Not. I have been wondering, pretty much nonstop, but, yep, first news of another plant I've run across, too.

  5. It seems the blood money was part of an offer they couldn't refuse.

    Tonight, Afzal, the uncle of Shumaila, the widow of one of the slain men who had committed suicide, went on Pakistani television. He told the audience, moments ago:

    Family members were told they were being taken to the police station to make statements. Instead, they were taken to a secret location and held in isolation and told that unless they signed a letter pardoning Davis, “you will never see daylight.”

  6. From your Pernicious reportage under a deceptive banner equals mass hypnosis....
    link:
    He added that the explosions at the reactors at Daiichi could complicate efforts to try to reach the cooling pools and keep them filled with water.

    “There’s no telling what’s up there,” he said.


    Another one we haven't heard of?

  7. GORDON DUFF IS THE WORST CONFABULATING DRUNK SENSATIONALIZING PIECE OF PIG DUNG ON THE INTERTUBES.

    I can't believe a WORD from him anymore, not after catching him in so many whoppers. He just sits there and dreams shit up and splats it out on a website with a name we all want automatically to respect.

    FUCK GORDON DUFF. PUT HIM IN A REST HOME AND TAKE AWAY HIS COMPUTER.

  8. BB2, No. Daiichi is the Fukushima plant we've been talking about.

  11. Heh. I was expecting someone to beg me to tell you how I really feel....

  12. It might have happened, mind you, but you'll want a different source for it. He MAKES SHIT UP, invokes relationships with people he may have seen go by, makes vague allusions sound as though they were declarations broadcast and written in the history books, all kinds of snaky tricks. THEN, when you respectfully mention he may have gotten a fact wrong, and even worse, show him the proof, he goes postal IMMEDIATELY and then will not let you post anything further. He's an asshole with strongly-held opinions he tries to turn into hard facts by sheer force of will. He just thinks shit up, and he gets so much attention because he's an Israel hater and a CIA hater... with a masthead like "Veterans Today". DESPICABLE. Worse enemy of truth than the liars in DC... BECAUSE he purports to be on our side. I'm being NICE to give him the excuse of alcoholism. Yes I am.

  13. I may begin referring to him as "Gordon Pig Dung" in the future if he causes any more shit to whip up, only to be proven false.

  14. Japan's reactors fading rapidly from the news...

    Of course!
