    We had to put down our dog this afternoon.
  2. QAnon is not the only movement getting worked up over Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis. Conspiracy theorists on the extreme fringe also suspect that Trump—who they believe might be an immortal alien—might have contracted coronavirus in an attempt to shed his mortal flesh and shapeshift into something else. Steenberg started an online petition three years ago called “Disclose: Humanoid Extra Terrestrials Live Among Us.” His website highlights the bulk of his theories and with nearly 30,000 Twitter followers and over 10,000 signatures on his petition, Steenberg is confident he knows the truth.

  3. The sad thing is the media actually gives him a moment.
  4. Why is this small group of doctors and scientists to be believed over the countless thousands worldwide saying the complete opposite, especially given that the evidence would seem to contradict much of what they are saying ?

  8. Charlie Watts, the long-time drummer for legendary rock band The Rolling Stones, has died at age 80, his publicist said in a statement Tuesday. Watts, who played with The Rolling Stones for more than 50 years, “passed away peacefully in a London hospital surrounded by his family,” according to publicist Bernard Doherty. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jemimamcevoy/2021/08/24/rolling-stones-drummer-charlie-watts-dead-at-80/?sh=47555e0d63d1

  11. A school has won a court battle, allowing it to use electric shock devices on students. The Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Massachusetts, US, reportedly introduced the controversial practice to deal with aggressive or self-harming behaviour in adults and children. The US Food and Drug Administration had previously banned the use of such devices, however, a 2-1 ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit saw the ban overturned. According to the school's website, it caters for 'both emotionally disturbed students with conduct, behaviour, emotional, and/or psychiatric problems, as well as those with intellectual disabilities or on the autism spectrum'. Parents and guardians of pupils, as well as the school itself, are said to be pleased with the ruling. https://www.ladbible.com/news/news-school-wins-legal-battle-to-electric-shock-children-20210708 https://www.reuters.com/legal/litigation/dc-circuit-overturns-fda-ban-shock-device-disabled-students-2021-07-06/

    Well, it's been two years but I'm back. Missed a lot of people here, apparently kmt the most. Bummer.
  13. Even more problematic are the facts that Pontius Pilate, as a Roman Prefect, was under no obligation to mete out any punishment in support of Jewish law or custom and the name “Barabbas”, strictly speaking, means “son of the father” convoluting the story even further. Sounds like an ancient case of “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullscheise” IMO. cormac

    Singing in the shower is fun until you get soap in your mouth. Then it's a soap opera.
  17. The number of deaths by COVID19 in the USA will rise to the point that whole cities will be blocked: no one in, no one out; Because of this the already volatile situation in the US will give birth to massive outbreaks of violence. Just a bit short of a civil war; Some self promoted 'messiah' will stir the masses, but will be gunned down, as is tradition in the US; China takes advantage of the situation in the US, and will send warships to Taiwan. It will be Russia who shall prevent this to escalate, with the help of Australia; We will receive odd signals from the direction of Saturn, or better, from one of its moons; A woman's head will be severed from her diseased body, and kept alive. She will be on tv, speaking to the people while being kept alive via a hearth-lung machine. It will be the Oprah Winfrey show where she will show up; Oprah Winfrey will be killed by some religious idiot who thinks that the 'talking severed head' is a blasphemy; Other religious idiots in the USA will destroy the containers where people are stored in cryogenic suspension (or whatever it is called in Angry-Saxon); A major archeaological discovery in the centre of the Amazonian rainforest. Erdogan, the president of Turkey, will be caught by an angry mob, and hanged in a plaza in the centre of Izmir; A famous Turkish businessman will be the new president, and the religious fanatics who had supported Erdogan will flee to the mountains; In some country - I can't see which one - a dam will burst, and the resulting flood will kill many villages; A very heavy earthquake in the Carpatians. Thousands will die; A cure will be found for rheumatism. A real cure, that is. Old people crippled by this disease will dance in the streets; Betelgeuse, a giant red star, finally explodes. It will be visible even during the day. People will be scared, but at the end it will turn out to be nothing but a beautiful heavenly spectacle. Of course not after thousands, under the spiritual guidance of yet another messianic nutcase, have killed themselves; Finally: nuclear fusion will be achieved. A company, called Convectron, will be the one publicly announcing their success. Their fusion process is based on bol lightning. They will also announce that it will make travelling to the stars a realistic goal. Why? They will announce another discovery... Thanks for your attention, and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

    During a U2 concert in Belfast, Ireland, Bono asked to audience for total silence. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands. Once, every few seconds. Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the microphone "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies." From the front of the crowd, a broad Irish accent pierced the quiet: "Well stop bloody doin' it then, ya evil bar steward!"

  36. Norm Macdonald, whose laconic delivery of sharp and incisive observations made him one of Saturday Night Live‘s most influential and beloved cast members, died today after a nine-year private battle with cancer. He was 61. I always thought he was the funniest Weekend Update person. Hilarious when he was on Letterman. Wow! Sad when talent goes. https://www.msn.com/en-ca/entertainment/tv/news/norm-macdonald-dies-influential-comedian-and-former-snl-weekend-update-anchor-was-61/ar-AAOrnmK?ocid=hplocalnews&li=AAggFp5

    I just got called a "sheep" for wearing my mask in an elevator with a group of guys. I replied as I removed my mask "Finally! A group of guys that don't mind me taking off my mask while having Covid" It went really quiet.

    I went to the beach, was watching the geese with their gosling when a guy comes along with his puppy and laughing, let's it loose from it's leash to chase the animals. I said that was ignorant to do to the poor animals, he told me to mind my own....business. So, he does something something so callous and I am a jerk for saying something. It really saddens me that society has gotten to point that there are so many self-centered people who only consider their own enjoyment, no matter who or what they hurt.

    Supreme Court dismisses Texas AGs Lawsuit

    I told y'all the supreme court was going to punt this case. Hopefully now everyone will calm down. Trump is lieing to you guys. Let this sink it. A conservative majority supreme court (3 of which are not just GOP appointees but Trump appointees) There is no fraud.
  49. Research published in Science The science stuff shows that crows have sensory consciousness, explained in the abstract: That corvids, and other birds, are smart is not a new idea, think Hugin and Munin, and in modern times I'm sure many of us have seen video evidence on documentaries and Youtube about just how smart they can be. The most famous example is that of the Caledonian crow Betty who was able to bend copper wire into a hook in order to pull food out of a cylinder. Since then she has been surpassed by other corvids showing even greater skills. The authors of this paper have for the first time been able to monitor neuronal activity during experiments in real time. Previously to measure brain activity a bird had to be trussed up and placed in a scanner, and as it wasn't engaged in any activity the results did not give a good idea normal brain activity when the bird was active. These results now put birds, corvids at least, into the same range as us and "higher" mammals such as apes, and researchers have been calling corvids "feathered apes" for a while now. This research ties in with other work done over the years that has shown that corvids have the ability to think about the future and plan. This involves food caches, but it is not a simple matter of hiding food for later, many animals do that, but how they do it and the deceptions they engage in. This research will cause us to have a re-think over animal intelligence and consciousness, and puts our "exceptionalism" in serious doubt, in fact I think the only difference between us and all other animals in intelligence is one of degree and application of that intelligence via the opposing thumb. What the researchers have not addressed, and that is because it is another subject, though related, is the extreme miniaturization of the avian brain which allows them to have proportionaly far more neurons than us, and by us that means all mammals as our neuron density is the same, and a higher density allows information to be moved faster within the brain. Pigeons have six times the density of neurons than us and can process information nearly 50% faster. Corvids have about 84 times the density of pigeons, but I have yet to see any experiments that have measured how fast information travels in their brains, perhaps because it will make us look "stupid". The avian brain is a modified coelurosaur brain, therefore related to the brain of the "raptors", which birds are anyway, and the tyranosaurs. So when a paleontologist points to the "crocodile like" T.rex brain and says this was a "dumb" animal, he cannot know what it's internal structure was like, and if was miniaturized. The insult "bird brain" has outlived it's usefulness, and, I suggest, "beast of the fields". We have long suffered a blind spot caused by scientific ignorance on the one hand, and a desire to separate us from the "beasts", partly for religious reasons.
