Easter 2016


Ray Kurzweil apparently has no idea that he suffers from mental illness. I am trying to communicate this to him from the future using gravity like I learned in the movie ‘Interstellar.’

Our brains are wired to predict the future — but it might be holding us back

This is just gibberish. VDH refuses to mention America leading the way in “interventions” and invasions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria being responsible for Europe’s immigration issues.

The Art of National Suicide
by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON March 28, 2016
America can still avoid sharing Europe’s fate. But only if we take action.

It most certainly cannot ask of immigrants upon arrival that they either follow the laws of a society that originally made Europe attractive to them, or return home to live under a system that they apparently rejected. I omit for obvious reasons that few present-day Europeans believe that Christianity is much different from Islam, and apparently thus assume that terrorists might just as well be Christians.

Even worse is the European notion of medieval penance: Because one in the concrete present apparently wants little to do with a Moroccan second-generation ghetto dweller, he fabricates abstract leftist bromides to square the circle of hypocrisy and assuage his guilt — sort of like Hillary Clinton or Mark Zuckerberg calling for perennial open borders to justify their Wall Street–funded luxury and tony apartheid existence.

  4. i think that the prostate acts as both a muscle and a gland. it that its’ only attachment point is at the vas deferens. i think.

  5. also, the tongue is not exactly a muscle, in the common use of the word. i guess. funny how weird little nothings can bug a guy out.

    also, it’s not “excess”, if it’s a requirement…picky, picky.

  6. kinda funny…but those gooks won’t think it’s so funny when the donald starts raining warheads down on their fucking slant-eyed asses…

  7. yeah, out here, there are so many homeless lying around, sleeping in the parks and on the streets that you wouldn’t know if they’re just sleeping or dead. and, you don’t want to find out, so you begin to not see them, or care for their plight. it’s a growth area of sorts, one of the few left.

  10. “you win the game of life by finding the way out of samsara (the cycle of birth and re birth). You achieve this by the right intention, detachment and meditation.

  11. pour moi, living in an ideal world, amy winehouse would still be alive and singing, and adelle would be dead. and russell brand would be in jail for something, maybe for just being russell brand. but that’s just moi.

  12. OK, subtract 1974 from 2012 = 38 years; this is sung about 10 years after, as opposed to 50. Now compare Miss Bassey’s singing talent here with the video of the same song above. It’s a campier performance, maybe a seventies effect, but note the ease of her performance delivery and the sheer power of her voice. I mean, the 2012 performance was extremely good, but oh wow. Peak Shirley?

  13. i though the adage was “always bet on black”:

    actually, once at the Hobart, Tasmania casino, after losing badly at blackjack, i also made up for the loss on the roulette table, always betting on red. then, i’d take the winnings and go back to blackjack and lose some moron.

  14. “The destruction of the natural world is not the result of global capitalism, industrialisation, “Western civilisation” or any flaw in human institutions.

Throughout all of history and prehistory, human advance has coincided with ecological devastation.” — John Gray, STRAW DOGS

  15. ah, a Stanford study. i’m so glad i didn’t accept their graduate school offer. yes, a fine study, reconfirming Catton (1982), Dymond’s “Collapse” and earlier work in this area.
