The green stuff looks craze…glowin’.
I’m not going to act all that shocked about this because I do live in New York City, and I’m hardly oblivious to the deviant undertones across the country, and worldwide for that matter (yea, some of you need to tone it down actually). No city or town is immune to the bad guys. But how does it make you feel when you hear oxycodone is being peddled out of an ice cream truck? Okay, honestly, who hasn’t had a day where you wouldn’t mind sayin’ “A snow cone for the kid and, ahem, 30mg of oxy for me! Damnnnnn, I need to RELAX!”; we all laugh, and everyone goes home happy. Uh, not a good look.
How could we as a species on a spinning rock in the vastness of the universe ever possibly hope to prepare a defense if we all believe there is nothing to defend ourselves against? Such a tremendous undertaking would prove to be equally difficult if we were in a content state of war with each other, not to mention the relentless bombardment of needless information and the tasks of day to day life that have kept us distracted for generations.
So why has this issue never been seriously addressed by any of the so-called professionals investigating this matter? If this “Fifth Column” controls most of the media we are exposed to are all part of the same species with the same objective, the sad fact of the matter is you can trust only yourself and your intuition. Forget everything you ever believed to be true. Forget the constant message delivered by movies that humans always vanquish the evil alien forces.
Handout photo shows the damaged building housing the No. 4 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Fukushima Prefecture on March 16, 2011. An employee of Tokyo Electric Power Co. took the photo from a helicopter of the Self-Defense Forces and the power company released the photo the following the day.
Disasters have been the subject of film-goers’ fascination since the time of silent film epics, and this interest continues to exist up to the present time. Catastrophes can take so many different forms – but they are mostly man-made or natural. They can be either impending or ongoing, or they can exist locally or globally.
The most commonly portrayed disasters in films are:
* natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tropical storms, etc.)
* accidents (skyscraper fires, plane crashes, ocean liners capsized or struck by icebergs, viruses unleashed)
* planetary-related (asteroids or meteors off-course)
* criminally-instigated (bombs planted in planes, terrorist conspiracies)
* alien invasions and rampaging creatures (often mutant)
* nuclear-related crises
* millennial-related (the end of the world, or end of the century tales)
* about failed technology or technology-gone awry (computers running amok)
What makes this cover for XTC’s Go 2 interesting is that it was from Hipgnosis, the same UK design group that brought us some of the most original and memorable covers for bands like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Yes and Black Sabbath.
Hipgnosis’s trademark story like imagery is replaced by copy poking fun at the art form that’s made them famous. It’s unlike any of their work before or after. I’d also say there was nothing like it at record shops back in 1978, this is same year Saturday Night Fever was released.
Last night, I heard CNN reporters repeat the official line that the tsunami disabled the pumps needed to cool the reactors, implying that water unexpectedly got into the diesel generators that run the pumps.
These safety backup systems are the “EDGs” in nuke-speak: Emergency Diesel Generators. That they didn’t work in an emergency is like a fire department telling us they couldn’t save a building because “it was on fire.”
What dim bulbs designed this system? One of the reactors dancing with death at Fukushima Station 1 was built by Toshiba. Toshiba was also an architect of the emergency diesel system.
Now be afraid. Obama’s $4 billion bailout in the making is called the South Texas Project. It’s been sold as a red-white-and-blue way to make power domestically with a reactor from Westinghouse, a great American brand. However, the reactor will be made substantially in Japan by the company that bought the US brand name, Westinghouse – Toshiba.
As engineers race to avert a nuclear catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, the government has declared a 20km (12-mile) evacuation zone around it.
The BBC has obtained footage from a local Japanese television crew who wanted to tell the story of those trapped inside the exclusion zone.
“Now hear this, Earth! I am Mutant Man, Homo Superior! I have been created by radiation forces out of the loins of you, the human race, after your great and terrible Atom War. Yes, I am a step above and beyond you and I am now your master for better or for worse. You created me in your blind, savage, senseless war of atomic radiation. You have only yourselves to blame if I turn out to be your Frankenstein Monster!”
The discovery that the US military is developing false online personalities – known to users of social media as “sock puppets” – could encourage other governments, private companies and non-government organisations to do the same.
Critics are likely to complain that it will allow the US military to create a false consensus in online conversations, crowd out unwelcome opinions and smother commentaries or reports that do not correspond with its own objectives.
