    • Urban sprawl, pollution, over-consumption, deforestation…like it or not, U.S. taxpayers are still paying for all of these things to occur in America and beyond. Despite recent investments in green jobs and technology, an array of government subsidies pay big dirty industries like oil, coal and factory farms to destroy the environment in every way possible while greener, healthier industries like solar power and vegetable farms get a pittance.
    • Low Clearance can be a real challenge for a truck driver. Especially inexperienced drivers of rental boxtrucks seem to be quite oblivious to the warning signs and flashing “overheight” warning lights at this railroad trestle in Durham, NC. So frequently do trucks crash into the 11-foot-8 clearance trestle, that the railroad company installed a crash beam in front of it. This massive steel I-beam bears the brunt of the impact, protecting the structure that supports this fairly busy railroad track. Believe it or not – they already had to replace the beam once! The videos of these crashes document the severity of the impact, and they show how frequently these crashes produce a real hazard for pedestrians and other vehicles.
    • THERE IS perhaps no other political-military elite in the world whose aspirations for great-power regional status, whose desire to overextend and outmatch itself with meager resources, so outstrips reality as that of Pakistan. If it did not have such dire consequences for 170 million Pakistanis and nearly 2 billion people living in South Asia, this magical thinking would be amusing. This is a country that sadly appears on every failing-state list and still wants to increase its arsenal from around 60 atomic weapons to well over 100 by buying two new nuclear reactors from China. This is a country isolated and friendless in its own region, facing unprecedented homegrown terrorism from extremists its army once trained, yet it pursues a “forward policy” in Afghanistan to ensure a pro-Pakistan government in Kabul as soon as the Americans leave.
    • The humans-as-food determination negates other possibilities, such as cannibalism for ritual’s sake, or cannibalism due to starvation. In this oldest known case of humans eating humans, other food was available to the diners, but human flesh was just part of their meat mix.

    • The implications of accidental disclosure of a person’s location are significant. This is especially true for those in physically threatening situations, including domestic abuse victims and those with sensitive occupations.

    • In the days after the levees broke, corporate media outlets were abuzz with stories of looting, rampant murder, snipers shooting at doctors and rescue helicopters, even the raping of babies at the Superdome stories backed by the local police chief and mayor . But a month later, the New Orleans Times-Picayune revealed 8/26/05 that most of the worst crimes reported at the time never happened -no babies raped, no snipers, and only four CONFIRMed murders in the entire week following the hurricane, a pretty typical week for New Orleans. The New York Times four days later 8/29/05 reported six or seven CONFIRMed homicides. And while looting did occur, much of it was for survival in a city where no help-no food, no water-arrived for days.

    • U-Boats Sank Dozens of Ships in U.S. Waters. On Jan. 14, 1942, an oil tanker bound for Great Britain was sunk by U-123 within sight of Long Island. Four days later, two more tankers sank in the same area. The next day, a pair of steamships went down. On Jan. 22, a freighter was sunk off Cape Hatteras, N.C. By the end of the month, German subs had sent 14 ships to the ocean floor along the eastern seaboard of the U.S.
    • “Gulf Coast fishermen do not want to sell tainted seafood but are being forced, by the premature opening of inland and gulf waters to commercial fishing, to choose between a clean gulf or their livelihood,” according to a press release announcing the event. “Fishermen would rather work cleaning the severely damaged gulf than selling tainted seafood.”
    • In 1700, the French Academy of Sciences reviewed the “facts” behind a reported case of male pregnancy. After a young man held himself back during sex, he felt that familiar soreness. But he didn’t expect that, a few days later, one of his testicles started to swell. Flash forward six months, his testicle had grown to the size a “turkey’s egg” — which, if you’re curious, is pretty darn big.
