Random Quote (otd)

I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere… Continue reading Random Quote (otd)

Plum Island

Lyme Disease on Plum Island: Fringe Conspiracy Theory or Government Cover-up? By Smaranda Dumitru As an animal disease center Plum Island has been the focus of many dark government conspiracies, from top secret biological weapon experimentation during the Cold War to the working ground for Nazi scientists recruited after World War II. Perhaps scientific experimentation mixed with government classification… Continue reading Plum Island

Today is:

Today is National Sibling Day and my brother posted this on Facebook; my wife sent it on to me (cause I’m on facebook vacation for a couple more months)… This of course is just a few, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephew, from my mama’s side of the family, taken several years ago in Midway.

Balancing the mind

Though study drugs like Adderall are well-documented to improve performance for academics and athletes in the short term, they actually deteriorate performance in the long term. “These drugs are amphetamines, they’re stimulant drugs. High doses of these drugs are psychotogenic, so they can actually create a psychotic state that’s indistinguishable from a schizophrenia-associated psychotic state,”… Continue reading Balancing the mind

Random Quote (otd)

FYI man, alright. You could sit at home, and do like absolutely nothing, and your name goes through like 17 computers a day. 1984? Yeah right, man. That’s a typo. Orwell is here now. He’s livin’ large. We have no names, man. No names. We are nameless! ~Cereal Killer (Hackers)

North Carolina has just passed HB2

As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s Sunday April 10th show is canceled. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

Acrylamide

I went to a coffee shop in LA the other day, and while I was waiting for my cup of Joe I spotted a fairly large sign about Prop 65, a “right to know” law that requires the State of California to maintain a list of chemicals that cause cancer or reproductive toxicity (such as… Continue reading Acrylamide

When Nature Calls –

I find it comical  that people are debating whether transgendered persons can use the gendered bathroom of their choice.  I live outside of Charlotte, NC and this is big news.  It is ludicrous.  Use whatever damn bathroom you want.  I wish I could use my own bathroom in peace, but that’s not going to happen… Continue reading When Nature Calls –

Animal Cruelty: Baby Elephant being tied up for being shipped out to Zoo

Also, we need BOYCOTT campaigns for SAFARI type expeditions that endanger wildlife for viewing pleasure. It’s time to leave nature… Continue reading Animal Cruelty: Baby Elephant being tied up for being shipped out to Zoo

Dr. Who Returns to Earth

While searching for signs of Dalek activity in the vast depths of outer space, the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico stumbled across a most interesting find. They were receiving modulated radio signals emanating from an invisible object about 25 light years away. The signals were all in the VHF band between 41 and 68 MHz.… Continue reading Dr. Who Returns to Earth
