Happy Valentine’s Day, I Hate You

With all the hand-wringing over anonymous commenters and social-media trolls, you’d think the Internet is to blame for all the woes of humanity. After all, what could people do with their ugly, mean thoughts before they had Yelp, Reddit, or Tumblr to help broadcast them? But as far back as the 1840s until the 1940s, they could send them in a Vinegar Valentine. Yes, that’s right. For almost as long as Valentine’s Day has been an insufferably sappy day celebrating romantic love, it’s also been a day for telling everyone else exactly how much you don’t love them—with an anonymous poem sent via post.

Texas DMV Sells Personal Information To Hundreds Of Companies; Drivers Not Allowed To Opt-Out
Fun, dubious, privacy-violating stuff happening out in Texas where the Dept. of Motor Vehicles has made a tidy sum selling the information it collects (including names, addresses and makes/models owned) to a variety of private companies. The Texas DMV claims its “top priority” is protecting drivers’ information, but that hardly seems to be the case when it’s pulling in $2.1 million a year selling it off. There are protections in place, but they are flimsy at best.

Heart Attack Grill Delivers on Its Promise

On the Heart Attack Grill’s menu and merchandise, Alleman is known as “Patient John.”As the Grill promises, “We prescribe great tasting high-calorie meals including the Double Bypass Burger, Flatliner Fries, Full Sugar Coke, Butterfat Shake, and no-filter cigarettes!” Last year, the restaurant got into the Guinness Book of World Records for building the “most calorific burger” — a 9,982 calorie tower of meat and cheese that could make Takeru Kobayashi consider vegetarianism. And this, people, is why Mike Bloomberg is not the mayor of Las Vegas.

How Prisoners Make Moonshine

The first thing about making prison moonshine—or “white thunder”—is, as the prisoner puts it, “You have to have the wine to make the shine.” The Fix has previously reported on how prisoners brew hooch. “It’s just a different process,” our man continues. “Basically, take five gallons of wine and strain it off.” That means getting all the fruit or vegetable pulp out of there: “The potatoes, tomatoes or fruit, whatever you used to make the wine, you want all the heavy chunks of stuff that will burn from the stinger removed so you only have the liquid.” A “stinger” is vital; it’s just a basic heating element with a cord used by inmates to boil water—or any other liquid. With that—plus a five-gallon bucket, some rubber bands, plastic bags, ice, a rubber hose and some pieces from a ripped-up sheet—you’re all set to make your own still.

The Meat Industry Now Consumes Four-Fifths of All Antibiotics

Last year, the Food and Drug Administration proposed a set of voluntary “guidelines” designed to nudge the meat industry to curb its antibiotics habit. Ever since, the agency has been mulling whether and how to implement the new program. Meanwhile, the meat industry has been merrily gorging away on antibiotics—and churning out meat rife with antibiotic-resistant pathogens—if the latest data from the FDA itself is any indication. The Pew Charitable Trusts crunched the agency’s numbers on antibiotic use on livestock farms and compared them to data on human use of antibiotics to treat illness, and mashed it all into an infographic, which I’ve excerpted below. Note that that while human antibiotic use has leveled off at below 8 billion pounds annually, livestock farms have been sucking in more and more of the drugs each year—and consumption reached a record nearly 29.9 billion pounds in 2011. To put it another way, the livestock industry is now consuming nearly four-fifths of the antib…

Anti-Piracy Group Rips Off Pirate Bay Website, Faces Lawsuit

A Finnish anti-piracy group has copied the design of The Pirate Bay website for their latest anti-piracy campaign. The Pirate Bay is outraged by this move and says it will sue the group for breaking their site policy, which clearly states that organizations are not permitted to steal the site design for nefarious purposes. “People must understand what is right and wrong,” The Pirate Bay says. Finnish anti-piracy group CIAPC, known worldwide for tracking down a 9 year-old “pirate girl” and having her Winnie The Pooh laptop confiscated, launched a controversial campaign yesterday. The group copied The Pirate Bay’s design for their campaign site, including the CSS stylesheet, and replaced the logo with one of a sinking ship.

The Sexxxtons, Mother-Daughter Porn Duo, Provoke Controversy

Research shows sexual acts between any parent and child leads most people to report feeling high levels of disgust, especially women, so the strong reaction to their films is unlikely to be seen as more acceptable over time,” she said. “Some researchers have suggested that erotic images online are so sexually compelling because of the novelty they provide. Since these type of interactions are so rare, and even rarely portrayed, I would expect many people who use erotic images on the internet to find them sexually arousing.”

“Wet” and Wild: PCP’s Horror Show

The uninitiated may assume that 34-year-old Chevonne Thomas and 31-year-old Osvaldo Rivera were high on so-called bath salts when they took these childrens’ lives. The synthetic meth analog got major bad press last year as the new monster-making killer drug epidemic. But in the big East Coast cities from Boston to Washington, DC, bath salts have barely registered as a blip on the street drug scene. Users here that want a wild drug ride turn to the old standby PCP, despite its reputation for triggering schizophrenia-like states that lead to bizarre episodes of violence. Phencyclidine (scientific name) is a dissociative anesthetic that shuts off certain brain chemicals producing a detachment from reality and states of mind as extreme as mania, delirium and psychosis. It is the most dangerous hallucinogen, never approved for medical use in humans because of its extraordinary side effects. On the street PCP is sold as an oily, liquid base called “wet,” in which either tea or mint leaves…

“To Get the Gold, They Will Have to Kill Every One of Us First” Tribal Leaders Fight Gold-Hungry Investors

The most famous case of Shuar “insolence” occurred in 1599, when the Spanish governor of Maca demanded a gold tax from local Indians to fund a celebration of the coronation of Philip III. The night before the tax was due, Shuar armies slaughtered every adult male in the Spanish hamlets and surrounded the governor’s home. They tied the governor to his bed and used a bone to push freshly melted gold down his throat, laughing and demanding to know if he had finally sated his thirst. According to the Jesuit priest and historian Juan de Velasco, the “the horrendous catastrophe” at Maca caused “insolences and destructions” by the “barbaric nations” up and down the Andean spine of New Spain. For the next 250 years, the Spanish mostly stayed away. Occasional attempts by Jesuit missionaries to reestablish contact were met with a welcome basket of skulls pulled from the shrunken heads of gold-hungry Spaniards.

TV station hacker warns of zombies in Montana

A Montana television station’s regular programming was interrupted by news of a zombie apocalypse. The Montana Television Network says hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station Monday. KRTV says on its website the hackers broadcast that “dead bodies are rising from their graves” in several Montana counties. The alert claimed the bodies were “attacking the living” and warned people not to “approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous.” The network says there is no emergency and its engineers are investigating.

Children barred from Florida church where sex offender preaches

A Florida church has caused outrage by turning away children from its popular Sunday services to cater to a pastor who is a registered sex offender. The decision to allow convicted child molester Darrell Gilyard into the pulpit has angered neighbouring pastors and members of the congregation of the Christ Tabernacle Missionary Baptist church in Jacksonville. Gilyard, 49, is allowed no contact with minors under the terms of his release from a three-year jail sentence for abusing a 15-year-old girl at another church in 2009. As a result church leaders have made his services “adults only”. Parishioners claim security guards hired by the church have begun refusing admission to families with children, including a woman who tried to attend on Sunday with a two-year-old boy. Instead, they say, children are directed to remain “off site” while Gilyard is preaching, and they accuse the church of dismantling its playground to keep them away.

Nukes ‘n Nazis

  • A devastating earthquake strikes Japan. A massive tsunami kills thousands. Fears of a nuclear meltdown run rampant. Bloodshed and violence escalate in Libya.
    And U.S. companies selling doomsday bunkers are seeing sales skyrocket anywhere from 20% to 1,000%.
    Northwest Shelter Systems, which offers shelters ranging in price from $200,000 to $20 million, has seen sales surge 70% since the uprisings in the Middle East, with the Japanese earthquake only spurring further interest. In hard numbers, that’s 12 shelters already booked when the company normally sells four shelters per year.“Sales have gone through the roof, to the point where we are having trouble keeping up,” said Northwest Shelter Systems owner Kevin Thompson.

  • Himmler, who ran the modern industrial-scale murder programme of the Jews, was also spellbound by myths and legends all his life. He financed expeditions to far-flung corners of the earth by Indiana Jones-type S.S. men seeking proof of the supremacy of Ayran man – ie, the Germans.

    The skull, which weighs nearly 20lbs, is of the same design as the death’s head which adorned the uniforms of his killers. It was found in a wooden and leather box in the home of an old lady and it is now in the hands of Swiss journalist Luc Burgin.

    With it, it is claimed, was a list of 35 treasures which the S.S. was seeking to bring back to Germany from Sudetenland on the border with Czechoslovakia as the Reich crumbled in 1945. Part of it reads;”Nr. 14; the crystal skull – 263-2 RFSS Collection Rahn, No 25592, leather case, crystal death‘s head, South America.”

  • In the wake of the continuing nuclear tragedy in Japan, the United States government is still moving quickly to increase the amounts of radiation the population can “safely” absorb by raising the safe zone for exposure to levels designed to protect the government and nuclear industry more than human life. It’s all about cutting costs now as the infinite-growth paradigm sputters and moves towards extinction. As has been demonstrated by government conduct in the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of Deepwater Horizon and in Japan, life has taken a back seat to cost-cutting and public relations posturing.

    The game plan now appears to be to protect government and the nuclear industry from “excessive costs”… at any cost.

  • The world’s fourth-largest economy stands alone among leading industrialized nations in its decision to stop using nuclear energy because of its inherent risks. It is betting billions on expanding the use of renewable energy to meet power demands instead.

    The transition was supposed to happen slowly over the next 25 years, but is now being accelerated in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant disaster, which Chancellor Angela Merkel has called a “catastrophe of apocalyptic dimensions.”

  • Researchers at a Canadian university are using nanotechnology and a tiny remote-controlled magnetic sphere to deliver cancer-fighting drugs directly to where they need to go.

    A scientific team at the Polytechnique Montral, one of Canada’s leading engineering schools, reported this week that they were able guide microcarriers through a live animal’s blood stream and deposit anti-cancer medicine directly on a targeted area on the animal’s liver.

    The carriers, made out of magnetic nanoparticles and biodegradable polymer, can be basically driven through arteries using a remote controlled device.

  • It’s possible that the family tree of all life on Earth has its roots on Mars — and a new device could put that theory to the test in a few years, researchers say.

    Researchers are developing an instrument that would search through samples of Martian dirt, isolating any genetic material from microbes that might be present — bugs that are living or that died relatively recently, within the last million years or so. Scientists could then use standard biochemical techniques to analyze any resulting genetic sequences, comparing them to what we find on Earth.

    “It’s a long shot,” said MIT researcher Chris Carr, who’s working on the life-detecting device, in a statement. “But if we go to Mars and find life that’s related to us, we could have originated on Mars. Or if it started here, it could have been transferred to Mars.”

  • A drug-resistant bacterium that has surfaced in Southern California has mostly spread in nursing homes, not hospitals, but more needs to be done to track it, health officials said Thursday.

    More than 350 cases of Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae, or CRKP, have been reported at healthcare facilities in Los Angeles County, mostly among elderly patients at skilled-nursing and long-term care facilities, according to a study by Dr. Dawn Terashita, an epidemiologist with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

  • For years, so many twins have been born in the small southern Brazilian town of Cândido Godói that residents wonder whether something mysterious lurks in the water, or even if Josef Mengele, the Nazi physician known as the Angel of Death, conducted experiments on the women there.
  • How two American kids became big-time weapons traders — until the Pentagon turned on them
  • Authorities in Pennsylvania arrested a 27-year-old woman who they say hid more than 100 items — including 54 bags of heroin and loose change — in her vagina.
  • The owner of the Hitler’s Den pool hall in central India is refusing to change the name despite objections from the Israeli Embassy and a Jewish group.

    “There is no way we will change the name,” owner Baljeet Ghosal told the Times of India. “We have been operating under this name since 2006 and now opened another one in Laxmi Nagar under the same banner. It is our identity.”

    Ghosal told the newspaper that he was looking for a “different-sounding name.” He also told the newspaper that people in Nagpur are not aware of Hitler’s atrocities against the Jews.

    “No one has raised any objection yet,” he told the Times of India.

  • An American who drugged her investment banker-husband with a milkshake and bludgeoned him to death more than seven years ago was convicted of murder Friday at her second trial in a case that grabbed world attention with lurid details on the breakdown of a wealthy expatriate marriage in Hong Kong.

    The unanimous verdict and automatic life sentence match the outcome of the first trial against Nancy Kissel, whose lawyers argued she was a battered, clinically depressed wife who acted under diminished responsibility when her husband provoked her attack.

  • A man with ties to the white supremacist movement was arrested and charged Wednesday in the foiled bombing of a Martin Luther King Day parade in this city last January.
  • Members filled their Gwalia Housing Association homes with ancient Egyptian idolatry, held ceremonies in robes and hoods and forced a number of children and vulnerable adults into depraved sex acts.
  • “A Long Island cop was shot in the face and killed by an MTA officer after a knife-wielding, self-proclaimed Satanist lunged at police and was gunned down in his home Saturday, sources said.”

    Brian Mullins, a 12-year-old eyewitness, recounted to police that DiGeronimo stared at him, “murderous-looking eyes” that were “staring into his soul” as he freakishly paraded down the streets of his neighborhood, knife in hand.

    Police, including an MTA office that lived nearby, corned DiGeronimo in a rear bedroom of his home after neighbors called police. Instead of dropping his weapon, Anthony lunged at police, resulting in officers executing the disturbed Satanist in the bedroom.

    That’s when the real tragedy began.

    “After the shooting, a Nassau County special operations cop stepped into the home. An MTA officer, standing near the door, saw the gun and shot the cop in the face.”

  • Medical records of Dr. Bruce Ivins, blamed by the FBI for the deadly 2001 anthrax mail attacks, “support the Justice Department’s determination that he was responsible,” a panel of behavioral experts and psychiatrists contended in a newly released report.

    “Dr. Ivins was psychologically disposed to undertake the mailings, his behavioral history demonstrated his potential for carrying them out, and he had the motivation and the means,” they said in a report made public Wednesday.

    Letters containing powdered anthrax were sent to news organizations and two US senators in late 2001, infecting 22 people who received or handled them, five of whom died. Ivins, a civilian researcher at the US Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in Maryland, committed suicide in July 2008 as the FBI was preparing to accuse him of preparing and mailing the letters. He was never charged.

  • As a Portland-based rock band with a growing fan base and national ambitions, the Slants figured it wouldn’t hurt to take care of some business interests. On the advice of their attorney, they decided to register their name through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Protect the brand. It seemed simple enough.

    “It didn’t occur to us at the time that there would be an issue with the name,” says Simon Tam, the band’s manager and bass player, who performs under the name Simon Young. As a band of Asian Americans who play to a fan base with a high percentage of Asian Americans why would they anticipate a problem?

    One year, two rejections and a case file closing in on 200 pages later, it’s clear there is an issue with the name. That issue is Section 2(a) of the 1946 Trademark Act. It says, in part, that a trademark can be rejected if it “consists of or comprises immoral, deceptive, or scandalous matter; or matter which may disparage …”

  • Malte Spitz, recently learned, we are already continually being tracked whether we volunteer to be or not. Cellphone companies do not typically divulge how much information they collect, so Mr. Spitz went to court to find out exactly what his cellphone company, Deutsche Telekom, knew about his whereabouts.

    The results were astounding. In a six-month period — from Aug 31, 2009, to Feb. 28, 2010, Deutsche Telekom had recorded and saved his longitude and latitude coordinates more than 35,000 times. It traced him from a train on the way to Erlangen at the start through to that last night, when he was home in Berlin.

    Mr. Spitz has provided a rare glimpse — an unprecedented one, privacy experts say — of what is being collected as we walk around with our phones. Unlike many online services and Web sites that must send “cookies” to a user’s computer to try to link its traffic to a specific person, cellphone companies simply have to sit back and hit “record.”

  • One sign of possible deterioration in the plant itself came at Reactor No. 3. Workers who were trying to connect an electrical cable to a pump in a turbine building next to the reactor were injured when they stepped into water that was found to be significantly more radioactive than normal. On Friday, officials and experts offered conflicting explanations of what had gone wrong — but all pointed to greater damage to the reactor’s systems and more contamination there than officials had indicated earlier.

    Two workers were exposed to radiation and burned when water poured over their boots and down around their feet and ankles, officials said. A third worker was wearing higher boots and did not suffer the same exposure.

    Like the injured workers, many of those risking their lives are subcontractors of Tokyo Electric Power, who are paid a small daily wage for hours of work in dangerous conditions. In some cases they are poorly equipped and trained for their task.

  • Fukushima is like a cancer eating away at the habitat of the east coast of Japan. Whilst the situation appears to be stable, a number of slow burning processes must inevitably be eating away at the heart of these reactors. The solution to a number of these problems is to restore fresh water circulation to each of the cores and the spent fuel ponds. Whether or not the pumping systems work remains to be seen. Disposing of the salty radioactive sludge from inside the reactor vessels presents another major challenge.

    It seems possible that the current meta stable condition may persist for many more weeks, and all the while the release and accumulation of radioactive isotopes in the environment will continue. And there is still risk of a catastrophic failure due to heat or corrosion that would result in the status degrading rapidly. It is too early to call this crisis over.

  • A high-level radiation leak detected Thursday at one of six troubled reactors at the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant indicates possible damage to the reactor’s vessel, pipes or valves, the government’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said Friday.

    Three workers at the No. 3 reactor’s turbine building, connected to the reactor building, were exposed Thursday to water containing radioactive materials 10,000 times the normal level, with two of them taken to hospital due to possible radiation burns to their feet, the plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.

    Hidehiko Nishiyama, spokesman for the governmental nuclear regulatory body, told a press conference, ”At present, our monitoring data suggest the (No. 3) reactor retains certain containment functions, but there is a good chance that the reactor has been damaged.”

  • “We think rolling out these kind of invasive measures is really another step toward mass surveillance of the population,” Calabrese told Raw Story. “I mean, now if you’re just walking around on the street, do you think that automatically police should be able to check your fingerprint? Seems very invasive to us.”

    But it’s more than just invasive, he suggested: it’s a fundamental revolution in American values.

    “Facial recognition is one of the most invasive biometrics because it allows surreptitious tracking at a distance,” Calabrese continued. “They can secretly track you from camera to camera, location to location. That has enormous implications, not just for security but also for American society. I mean, we are now at a point where we can automatically track people. Computers could do that. That’s what, we think, is a grave danger to our privacy.”

  • As workers race to stave off further melting at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors in Japan, several robots there are waiting on the sidelines for an opportunity to help. Questions remain, however, regarding how these units might assist in an ongoing emergency at a site contaminated with radiation and deluged with tons of corrosive seawater.
  • Although charged with the possession of six plus ounces of weed, Nelson will please guilty to possessing just over three thanks to Hudspeth County Attorney C.R. “Kit” Bramblett, who openly calls Nelson his “favorite artist.”

    Speaking to reporter Sterry Butcher at The Big Bend Sentinel newspaper, Bramblett, now 78, confessed that he’d admired Nelson all his life. He even joked that they’d maybe helped Willie out a bit.

    “Between me and the sheriff, we threw out enough of it or smoked enough so that there’s only three ounces, which is within my jurisdiction,” he quipped, before explaining that the extra weight was actually due to excessive packaging.

    If that’s indeed the case, Willie isn’t actually getting special treatment. In fact, most misdemeanor possession cases that draw a guilty plea are handled by mail.

    With the official charge now reduced to a misdemeanor, he’ll be ordered to pay a $100 fine and $278 in court fees.

  • A blurred portrait is visible in the controversial photos of Adolf Hitler’s “doppelganger suicide.” In the picture above on the left, the out of focus portrait was placed directly onto the corpse. In the Russian movie footage frame on the right, the blurred portrait appears as a prop in the background. This change of position invites serious speculation that the body may also have been moved, switched, or meddled with between photos.
  • During World War II the leaders of the Axis powers (Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito) were sometimes depicted by Allied “black” propagandists as monsters. Black propaganda purports to emanate from a source other than the true one. This type of propaganda is associated with covert psychological operations. The enemy leaders were caricatured as gorillas, skeletons, rats, or whatever the Allied “psywarriors” could dream up. This was all part of the process of wartime depersonalization, the destruction of an individual as a human being and the resultant new image of him as vermin good only for killing.
  • RABIDLY ANTI-NAZI
    PRE-WAR AMERICAN
    PHOTO BOOK 1939
    “HITLER DOOMED TO DIE” Nazi dagger, Nazi baby
    Nazi atrocities
    This is a very historic piece of American pre-war literature called HITLER DOOMED TO DIE and was published in 1939 without the name of either the author or the publisher! The perfect bound 8-1/2 x 11-1/8 inch, very heavily illustrated, 98 page softbound book claims to tell the story of the life and crimes of Adolf Hitler, Hermann Göring, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler and other top Nazis in text and photos.

    In chapters such as “Sexual Pervert”, “Hitler – Illegitimate? A Jew?”, “A German-Jew’s Story”, “Vienna’s Flophouse Fuehrer”, “Concentration Camp Horrors”, etc., the book explains that Hitler as a toddler was found “…pulling the wings off flies or spread-eagling the frogs that he caught in the garden…” and when he was four years old he was found “…chewing a field mouse he caught and dismembered.” It gets worse.

  • As we’ve been watching the conflict in Libya play out exactly like the war in Iraq, and being keen to their tricks and tactics, we began examining pictures, videos and other evidence to lead us to the conclusion that this entire ordeal is a CIA-backed coup. We believe there is actually very little conflict (if any) aside from the false flags perpetuated by the CIA/MI6/MOSSAD in a UN takeover of the region. Considering the internet blackout disabling the people’s ability to speak, Russia Today’s interviews with the people of Libya, and the great oracle John McCain’s prophecy that Gaddofi will bomb his own oil reserves, a clearer picture began to form.

Ultramagnetic MC’s

Here’s the first in a series of posts where I drop some musical artists who’ve inspired me. Too lazy to really write about ’em, so I’ll just cut ‘n paste some info.

“The Ultramagnetic MC’s released a new school classic in 1988, Critical Beatdown, introducing many new sampling techniques. Many believe that without the group’s primary producer, Ced Gee, the golden era of sampling may have looked very different. Ced, while uncredited, also produced the majority of Boogie Down Productions‘ seminal Criminal Minded. These albums are among the first to use “chopped” samples, rearranged and edited to change context. Both albums also feature many James Brown samples, which became very prominent in Hip Hop in ensuing years. KRS-One has been quoted as saying that he was very close to joining Ultramagnetic MC’s early on. Paul C. was also a major contributor to Critical Beatdown, producing “Give The Drummer Some,” and engineering most of the album. Paul C. also produced the Hip-House mix of “Traveling At The Speed Of Thought”, which was used as the group’s first music video, and was their sole release in 1989. The single’s b-side, “A Chorus Line”, became one of Ultramagnetic’s most popular songs and introduced new group affiliate Tim Dog. A variation of the “A Chorus Line” instrumental was used as the basis of Tim Dog’s debut single, the Ced Gee-produced “Fuck Compton“, which became a modest hit and is credited with helping to spark the East coast/West coast feud of the mid ’90s.” – Wikipedia

Check out this crazy video for Traveling At The Speed Of Thought. Never seen this wild shit before, I’m thinkin’ it’s because of the uncleared Kraftwerk sample. Hadda embed it from a Russian site, the Chinese site wouldn’t let me watch it!

  • If every piece of art that offended some person or some group was removed from a museum, our museums might start looking empty – or would contain nothing more than pabulum. Goya’s great nudes? Gone. The Inquisition called them porn.
  • “[F]or eleven seconds of that meandering, stream-of-consciousness work—the full version is 30 minutes long—a crucifix appears onscreen with ants crawling on it,” explained Washington Post art critic Blake Gopnik. “It seems such an inconsequential part of the total video that neither I nor anyone I’ve spoken to who saw the work remembered it at all.”
  • Thanks to technology and Internet-enabled services, more music is being purchased, more music is being heard, and artists are getting paid. But the traditional music industry measures success using a bygone standard, leading to a lopsided perspective of how artists can achieve success in this day and age. And in our view, this leads to an undervaluing of the broad, actual advantages of the Internet — and innovative services using the Internet as a platform — in rewarding artists for their creativity.
  • “We knew mercury could depress their testosterone (male sex hormone) levels,” explained Dr Peter Frederick from the University of Florida, who led the study. “But we didn’t expect this.”
  • If you thought intrusive body scans and airport pat downs were just a fluke in the War on Terror bureaucracy, fear not: The Department of Homeland Security has plenty of other programs that will make your skin crawl. For instance, Big Brother is reading your tweets and Facebook status updates, searching for dangerous words and phrases such as militia, Iraq, and, ironically, body scanner.
  • “Most obvious and most significant of our findings is that the number of reported cases of child sex abuse immediately dropped markedly after [sexually explicit material] was legalized and became available,” the report, which was published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour, reads. “We consider instructive our findings for the Czech Republic that have echoed those found in Denmark and Japan that where so-called child-pornography was readily available without restriction the incidence of child sexual abuse was lower than when its availability was restricted.” The study suggests “artificially produced materials,” not children, be used in the creation of pornography, and that pornography can often act as a substitute for sexual assaults.
  • Officials believe the fetus has been in the building for more than 25 years.
  • “Baby Klaus,” as his parents and local media are calling him, was born with hydrocephalus, a build-up of excess fluid in the brain that has caused his head to swell to more than 130% larger than a typical newborn’s head.
  • Jones said the caller then said that a “midget” who was 4 feet 3 inches tall was barricaded in the room next to him and that he needed to help police get to him. With that, the report said, Jones took his wrench and began to break away the wallboard behind the room door. He broke through to the next room, but then stopped due to complaints from other guests about the loud noises.
  • “The decision wasn’t caving in,” said Martin E. Sullivan, the museum’s director. “We don’t want to shy away from anything that is controversial, but we want to focus on the museum’s and this show’s strengths.”

    Yeah, right.

  • Two women are arrested for shoplifting and police say they used their bodies to conceal the goods. Edmond police authorities say it was at the Edmond TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.
  • Thanks Patrick Nybakken
  • A new father in Pennsylvania is facing marijuana charges after he lit up a joint — instead of a cigar — to celebrate his child’s birth at Uniontown Hospital Tuesday morning.
  • When officers arrived, theater employees took them to a projection booth where “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” was being shown. From there, authorities were able to look into the back row and observe a man touching his exposed genitals, according to the news release. Officers then entered the theater and arrested him.
  • In a ritual that spans three days, her heart and other body parts are removed and eaten. In the course of those days the priest has a vision: he meets the devil who tells him he will become a great warrior. The devil says to increase his power he must continue the rituals of child sacrifice and cannibalism. The initiation is complete and the priest is now one of the most powerful leaders in West Africa. The priest is 11 years old. As prophesied, the boy priest grew up to become one of Liberia’s most notorious warlords: General Butt Naked. He and his boy soldiers would charge into battle naked apart from boots and machine guns.
  • It’s called ‘Graffiti’ not ‘Street Art’, get it right.
  • The dun language or dun lingo is a style of East Coast hip hop slang popularized in the mid-1990s by rappers such as Queensbridge’s Mobb Deep, Tragedy Khadafi, Capone-N-Noreaga, Nas and AZ, and to a lesser extent Raekwon and Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan. While much of the slang had already been introduced by this point, the term “dunn language” was first recorded in Mobb Deep’s 1999 single “Quiet Storm”, in which Prodigy raps: “you’s a dick blower, [you] tryin’ to speak the Dunn Language?/ “what’s the drilly” with that though? “It aint bangin”/ you hooked on Mobb phonics, Infamous ‘bonics.”
  • A veteran New Orleans police officer said he purposely torched a car containing a gunshot victim’s body in the days after Hurricane Katrina because he was stressed, exhausted and felt disorder had gripped the city. Share Tweet 38 Comments “I had seen enough bodies,” officer Greg McRae testified Monday. “I had seen enough rot.” For several hours Monday afternoon, McRae tried to explain his actions to a federal jury that will soon decide his fate and that of four other current or former New Orleans police officers charged with either fatally shooting Henry Glover, burning his body, or covering up his death.
  • Wellington police will decide later today whether to lay charges against legalise cannabis protesters who pushed a shopping trolley full of burning marijuana into the central police station foyer.
  • Scores of empty houses and rentals in Las Vegas — many of them in upscale neighborhoods — have become incubators, literally, for crime. The stucco walls and tightly drawn shades hide elaborate systems of special lights, fans, sprinklers and timers, all carefully arranged to cultivate millions of dollars worth of marijuana. Last year, Metro Police raided 108 homes, seizing 12,466 plants and about $70,000 in cash. This year police have confiscated 10,311 plants and more than $90,000 from 112 “grow houses” — more than double the number of homes raided in 2007.
  • It turned out the kids smoking weed containing lots of the chemical cannabidiol (CBD) could remember details of the story just as well stoned as sober. Meanwhile, those smoking the low-CBD marijuana fit the stereotype of the forgetful pothead. The findings fit into a growing library of data demonstrating the possible health benefits of CBD, which is naturally found in marijuana. CBD appears to fend off cancerous tumors, prevent diabetes and epileptic seizures, and protect nerve cells from degradation. It doesn’t combat the effects of THC, the ingredient in marijuana that causes a “high,” and can even prevent anxiety. On top of all that, Curran’s preliminary research suggests that CBD can help prevent marijuana users from becoming addicted to the substance.
  • Click through the slideshow below of people having the time of their 20 year old lives, and try to tell me Four Loko isn’t really really fucking cool.
  • Just as the controversy surrounding caffeinated alcoholic beverages like the infamous Four Loko was dying down, a new boozy fad is whipping up concern among public health officials. Whipped Lightning, which bills itself as “the world’s first alcohol-infused whipped cream,” and its competitor CREAM (slogan – “Get Whipped”) are rapidly gaining attention as the next big alcoholic trend.

    • If you’re acting stupid because you’re a stoner, you might just be playing to type. That is, it may be your expectations about marijuana’s long-term cognitive effects — rather than any real effect of the drug itself — that is to blame, particularly if you’re male, according to new research. The study, which was published in the journal Addictive Behaviors, explored the effect of “stereotype threat” — the idea that performance is affected by conventional images of minorities — on marijuana smokers.
    • Schizophrenia has long been blamed on bad genes or even bad parents. Wrong, says a growing group of psychiatrists. The real culprit, they claim, is a virus that lives entwined in every person’s DNA.
    • Several Rastafarian and other inmates who have been held in isolation for refusing to cut their hair are being moved to a prison where they can live together. The Department of Corrections confirmed Wednesday that 31 inmates have been transferred to Keen Mountain State Prison in southwest Virginia.
    • Seattle seems to have a preponderance of self-styled Real Life Super Heroes. And it’s causing problems for the local police. Seattle PI reports that on one occasion “police say a caped crusader dressed in black was nearly shot when he came running out of a dark park.
    • Scientists have speculated that life could have come to Earth from space — a notion called panspermia — since the 1870s, when Lord Kelvin suggested microbes could have ridden here on a comet or meteor. Others have suggested tiny organisms could cross the galaxy embedded in dust grains, which could be nudged from one planetary system to another by the slight pressure of stars’ radiation.
    • For decades in art circles it was either a rumour or a joke, but now it is confirmed as a fact. The Central Intelligence Agency used American modern art – including the works of such artists as Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko – as a weapon in the Cold War. In the manner of a Renaissance prince – except that it acted secretly – the CIA fostered and promoted American Abstract Expressionist painting around the world for more than 20 years.
    • The tunnel is half a mile long and reaches to about 90 feet deep, contains two entrances on the U.S. side of the border and is outfitted with advanced rail, electrical and ventilation systems
    • But it may also just as easily be the case that the FBI — as they’ve done many times in the past — found some very young, impressionable, disaffected, hapless, aimless, inept loner; created a plot it then persuaded/manipulated/entrapped him to join, essentially turning him into a Terrorist; and then patted itself on the back once it arrested him for having thwarted a “Terrorist plot” which, from start to finish, was entirely the FBI’s own concoction. Having stopped a plot which it itself manufactured, the FBI then publicly touts — and an uncritical media amplifies — its “success” to the world, thus proving both that domestic Terrorism from Muslims is a serious threat and the Government’s vast surveillance powers — current and future new ones — are necessary.
    • “Barefoot bandit” suspect Colton Harris-Moore, the teen accused in a two-year spree of sometimes-shoeless burglaries and thefts, pleaded not guilty on Thursday to charges of interstate transportation of a stolen plane, boat and gun.
    • A British man has lost his license, after getting nabbed for drunk driving in an electric Barbie car.
    • A US researcher has said he plans to electronically record and interpret dreams.
    • On November 8th, West of Los Angeles and just North of Catalina Island off the Southern Coast of California, KCBS cameraman, Gil Leyvas, filmed what appeared to be a “mysterious missile launch.” Four days later the Dept. of Defense informed us that the case was closed. What everyone mistook for a missle, was “likely… most likely,” an aircraft. Specifically, they claimed it was a jet contrail–condensation from a commercial or military jet– from a US Airways flight from Honolulu to Phoenix. The next day on the East Coast, another chopper films a fireball streaking behind the NYC skyline. The object is dubbed “The Fire in Sky.” However, according to the local news team at CBS 2, a top (unnamed) astronomer is quoted as saying it is “likely” nothing more than a contrail. The CBS 2 coverage included the snide The aliens are apparently… not… coming.”
    • Merkin Panties
    • Of Genuine Contemporary Beast is a group of hyper-real sculptures depicting Mara Salvatruchas as flayed animal skins turned into rugs. The MS-13 and MS-18 gangs, originated in the 80’s in the Los Angeles area represent, among others, a minority which has been recently processed by the Caliban Factories.
    • Pistols, canes, bowie knives, and fireplace tongs: a brief history of congressional violence.
    • Nashville musician Matt Glassmeyer came up with this unique solution for shingling his porch roof. Glassmeyer, using nails and washers, attached 350 vinyl records to the roof, and after two years in the Nashville sun, apparently, they still haven’t warped.
    • italian designer daniele del nero has sent images of his latest project ‘after effects’ – consisting of of a series of architectural scale models constructed with black paper. the series portrays old detached houses. to create the effect of old abandoned buildings the paper structures were covered with flour and a layer of mould, photographed as still lifes.
    • Two-thirds of the men surveyed in that study said they raped because of a sense of sexual entitlement. Other popular motivating factors included a desire to punish women who rejected or angered them, and raping out of boredom, Jewkes said.
    • Meanwhile, TSA continues to defend the scanners: “This year alone, the use of advanced imaging technology has led to the detection of over 130 prohibited, illegal or dangerous items.” TSA would not disclose exactly what those items were, but it said they included weapons like ceramic knives and various drugs — including a syringe filled with heroin hidden in a passenger’s underwear. Leaving aside the obvious — that “various drugs” have nothing to do with weapon or bomb detection, and that “prohibited, illegal or dangerous items” (say, a Swiss Army knife) don’t equal a true terrorist threat — the public should be offended by TSA’s selective disclosure of information for PR gain.
    • Affliction is banned in several bars along Vancouver’s infamous Granville Mall, where debauchery and hooliganism are common in the early hours around closing time.

      George Mora, who has been a bouncer at the Plaza nightclub for two years, says people who wear Affliction tend to cause trouble.

      “Over time, it’s become clear that people who wear Affliction cause problems,” he said. “There have been many incidents in the pass with people who wear Affliction so why take the chance?”

    • At one point, Bruce was ordered to visit a building with a chain link fence that housed test animals, including dogs, cats, guinea pigs and monkeys. After reporting, Bruce was strapped across his chest, his wrists, and his ankles to a gurney. Bruce occasionally would regain consciousness for brief moments. On one such instance, he remembers being covered with a great deal of blood, and assumed it was his own, but did not really know the source. Also portions of his arms and the backs of his hand were blue. His wrist and ankles were bruised and sore at the points where he had been strapped to the gurney. Bruce believes that this is the time period during which a septal implant was placed in his brain.
    • Facebook makes it pretty easy to deactivate your account which will temporarily hide your information. However, if you want to permanently remove your information, the “permanent delete” option is much harder to find. This article will cover two easy ways to erase your Facebook account so you can Quit Facebook forever.
    • “This guy,” Edwards County Sheriff Don Letsinger said, “is an evil man.”
    • A 30-year-old Spencer man has been charged with giving a 3-year-old an injection of heroin that he allegedly thought might make the sick child feel better.

    Rapper/Raper

    • The artwork reminds me of heroin/dust bag art
    • Still dazed after being anaesthetised for three hours, a pedigree pet is hauled upright to show off its new tattoo. The controversial “body enhancement” was carried out on Mickey – a rare Canadian Hairless breed also known as a Sphynx cat. His female owner was said to be delighted with the Tutankhamun design inked on to his chest at a tattoo parlour.
    • In 1973, ABC commissioned a pilot for a “Mad” series. Titled “The Mad Magazine TV Special,” this pilot was everything that “Mad TV” wasn’t: it was completely animated, it fairly accurately captured the essence of the comics, and it was often funny (the hospital sketch in particular is a hoot). Not to imply that it was truly great (and “The Oddfather” sketch drags on far too long), but it certainly had a lot of potential for greatness. Unfortunately the honchos at ABC didn’t feel the same way, they deemed the show too risqué for television.
    • “So you not trying to suck my dick?” “What!” I screamed. “What are you talking about!” Tupac raised his voice. “You know you want to suck my dick, bitch! Don’t fucking lie.” I burst into tears and grabbed my phone. “I have to get out of here.” Tupac kept going. He was making no sense, cursing and yelling. He said something about Big and the East Coast. “But … but … I thought y’all was friends,” I said. At this point, I could barely speak clearly because I was crying so hard. “Whatever. You know you wanna be my bitch,” he said, before going into the bedroom area and slamming the door.
    • Just as we began kissing, the door opened and I heard people entering. As I started to turn to see who it was, Tupac grabbed my head and told me, “Don’t move.” I looked down at him and he said, “Don’t worry, baby, these are my brothers and they ain’t going to hurt you. We do everything together.” I started to shake my head, “No, no, Pac, I came here to be with you. I came here to see you. I don’t want to do this.” I started to rise up off the bed but he brutally slammed my head down. My lips and face came crashing down hard onto his penis, he squeezed the back of my neck, and I started to gag. Tupac and Nigel held me down while Trevor forced his penis into my mouth. I felt hands tearing my shoes off, ripping my stockings and panties off. I couldn’t move; I felt paralyzed, trapped, and I started to black out. They leered at my body. “This bitch got a fat ass, she’s fine.” While they laughed and joked to one another
    • “Light and darkness cannot exist together,” Pastor Bill Dunfee told the Associated Press news agency, “so the Fox Hole has got to go.”
    • BP is warning Congress that if lawmakers pass legislation that bars the company from getting new offshore drilling permits, it may not have the money to pay for all the damages caused by its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

      Fuck outta here!
