Hey Nym, this is great. I've never even heard of "The Chasers War on Everything". I downloaded the 1st 10 episodes from season 1 and if it's as good as I think it will be, I'll get all 26 episodes plus season 2. It's really rare something like this comes along. I haven't seen anything this good since "Trigger Happy" and if you haven't seen Trigger happy, try a few minutes. You made my day.

General News/Discussion / Shaq: ‘The Earth Is Flat’
« on: March 21, 2017, 10:34:48 PM »
"It appears we now have proof positive the Earth is flat from none other than Shaquille O’Neal. Proof in the form of "I drive coast to coast and this shit is flat to me." And much more."

Shaquille O’Neal has become the latest celebrity to join the flat-earth society, declaring that our minds have been manipulated to accept “the lie that the earth is round.” The big man even offered “proof” of his claims – he “drives coast to coast” and “this sh*t is flat to me.”

Shaq, speaking on his podcast this week, was dismissive of any evidence that proves the earth is round.

When satellite imagery that shows the earth is round was brought up, Shaq immediately threw the evidence out of court, saying “Oh, satellite imagery — that could be drawn or made up.”

“It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America.

“So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this s*** is flat to me. I’m just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.”

Yahoo Sports reports: Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving was the first NBA player to reveal his flat-Earth beliefs, summarized as such: “Can you really think of us rotating around the sun, and all planets align, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these ‘planets’ and stuff like this?”

Soon afterwards, Denver Nuggets wing Wilson Chandler and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green endorsed Irving’s flat-Earth theory, with the latter explaining away NASA’s photos of the planet from space by suggesting everyone can manipulate doctored photos of the globe on their phones.

The NBA storyline became so outrageous commissioner Adam Silver had to address it in his annual state-of-the-league address at the All-Star Game, clarifying, “I believe the world is round,” and suggesting Irving was making some broader social commentary about fake news in this country.

Which, no he wasn’t. Irving doubled down on his flat-Earth theory this past week, before detailing his lucid dreaming skills and informing us how an ex-teammate came to him in a dream to say goodbye.

These are all very real things that NBA players have said.

This is one wild theme to the 2016-17 NBA season, and Shaq just made it wilder when asked about Irving’s flat-Earth theory on his podcast. This was his response, through a series of interruptions:

    Shaq is a flat-Earther, too


This man has a doctorate degree in education from Barry University in Miami, Fla. Seriously.

I’m not sure which detail I enjoyed better — Shaq thinking the world is flat because he drives coast to coast or Shaq thinking he’d be driving “up and down at a 360-degree angle” if the Earth was spherical.

Unfortunately, you can’t drive from here to Asia, but there are things called boats and airplanes, and if you head west from California, you’ll arrive in China. And if you head west from there, you’ll eventually end up in California again. Because we live on a globe. Shaq should know full well. He’s been to China.

    — Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) March 19, 2017

And, technically, a 360-degree angle is just a circle. I don’t know why Shaq thinks you would be driving up and down on a circle, but it is possible to drive comfortably on a spherical object when that object’s circumference is 24,901 miles. Think of an ant walking around a basketball, if you will. It might think it’s moving in a straight line, but eventually it will navigate the orb and arrive in the same place.

Also, there are things called mountains, and you drive over them on your way to California. At various angles. But never at a 360-degree angle, because your car would just be careening in circles into a ravine. But we shouldn’t have to explain mountains to you, just how we shouldn’t have to tell you the Earth is not flat. And that’s what’s so great about this new NBA narrative. It raises so many questions, from where players think the sun goes at night to why they believe they travel to different time zones.

General News/Discussion / Smart Dildos Caught Spying On Owners
« on: March 18, 2017, 01:20:36 PM »
"I guess if you're dumb enough to buy a BlueTooth dildo.........."

The manufacturer of a bluetooth-enabled “smart dildo” has been ordered to pay out $3.75 million to users after it was caught collecting “extremely intimate data” about the way individual owners used the sex toy.

The class action against sex toy company Standard Innovation Corporation was brought in the federal court by two anonymous women last year, in relation to the We-Vibe 4 Plus, a product advertised as the “No. 1 couples vibrator.”

The prime feature of the device allows users to adjust intensity and vibration patterns using a smartphone linked to the ‘We-Connect’ app, enabling couples to “play together even when [they’re] apart”.

Internet capabilities of the We-Vibe product line allow devices to be controlled long distance, for example between two people in different locations – even on opposite sides of the globe. Individual We-Vibe devices retail for between $170 and $300.


So. let me understand this Nym. I can throw away all those charts and just see where Venus and Mars are? Wow, this is great news.

This is even worse than what I originally posted. Thanks. Glad I don't live there.

"So that was 3 maybe 4 seals? Sad but hardly a mass die-off.

The thing I find most disturbing about these reports is we don't usually see what is reported. It's one thing to say X amount of birds, seals etc, but we don't see photoes of that."

That’s because it’s coming from local MSM stations. Yep, you got it, FAKE NEWS.

And your last video on Fukushima, I was afraid most people wouldn’t watch it so I took some notes during the movie. This pretty much sums it up.

1. People are dumber than anyone can imagine.
2. Real Estate in Fukushima is bargain basement prices.
3. It doesn’t matter where you are, Governments lie.
4. That bowl of radioactive GMO soy sure looked yummy.
5. Quote from resident “In 20 years or so, nature will take its course, Namie will disappear.” (probably melt)
6. The good news is, if you’re going to live there, you don’t have to worry about smoking.

Damn, I wish I lived in your world NYM, mine sucks.


2 things Nym. First, the above video appears to have nothing to do with your post. Maybe you put up the wrong embed code.

2nd, your comment "we don't usually see what is reported" can only be true if you didn't read beyond the headlines. Virtually every report contains video from a local TV station. doesn't report news, it only links to MSM news. Maybe you should click on the ENENews headline and read the article as well as watch the video.

What won't they do for profit? The movie starts at 2:40. If you're really old, this is probably a good time to check out.

General News/Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Reaches Parity With Gold

"Egon von Greyerz put out an interesting article today, where he talks about Bitcoin, in similar respects to my post above. Don't get trapped by all the hype on Bitcoin, it's merely to drive up the price so other people can take your money."

"Bitcoin has performed very well lately as the world tries to avoid fiat currencies. We have just seen the Bitcoin price go higher than the gold price. This is a meaningless comparison. The total market value of Bitcoin is $20 billion whilst all the gold in the world is worth around $7 trillion. Bitcoin might continue to be an excellent speculative investment but is has nothing to do with wealth preservation. It can only be stored electronically and can therefore disappear when there is a breakdown of the internet, at least temporarily. Bitcoin is very similar to paper money and has no intrinsic value. It cannot be used for any major payments cross-border. If Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies ever become big, governments will regulate this market in the same way as paper money."

"I ran across this 4 min video about the heat blob in the Pacific. I don't know that I believe it, but what caught my attention was the news articles scrolling by for the last 2 minutes. Easily readable if you have the courage."

General News/Discussion / Bitcoin Reaches Parity With Gold
« on: March 02, 2017, 11:51:20 AM »

I wasn’t sure whether I should post this as a new thread under General News/Discussion or just make it a reply to Introducing..........The Idiot of All Idiots.

The “Who’s the biggest fool” theory at work. I can’t believe people are really this stupid so this must be a case of legalized gambling. Who in their right mind would think of this as “Money”. With Gold and Silver, “If you can’t touch it, you don’t own it”. With Bitcoin, it doesn’t even exist in the first place.

Gold and Silver (G&S) is valued by weight and maintains its value over time. Bitcoin has no weight and only has value compared to a fiat currency. What will its value be when there is no Fiat currency?

G&S could care less what happens to the Internet. Without the Internet, there is no Bitcoin. Possibilities include Solar Flares, EMP, Government interference or takedown of the Internet.

The Bitcoin fools had 850,000 Bitcoins stolen from them through Mt. Gox. Completely out of their control. Whatever happens to Bitcoin, will always be completely out of your control.

For a never ending list of Bitcoin problems, "bitcoin problems".

Seems like a lot of smart people get real stupid when it comes to Bitcoin. I can only guess that all the hype is to drive up the price so a few can make a quick buck. There is no investment here. The casino is open.

And the winner is....Gael Garcia Bernal.

“As a Mexican, as a Latin-American, as a migrant worker, as a human being, I’m against any form of wall that separates us.” All the while safely separated from the unwashed masses by a complex ‘maze’ of security walls and fences.

General News/Discussion / Youtube Pulls Sexually Explicit Post.
« on: February 23, 2017, 10:40:45 AM »

Millions of people have been watching and waiting with anticipation to witness the birth of a baby giraffe at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, NY.

The park set up a webcam in order to share the precious and educational moment with the world. Park officials in a little more than 12 hours they've seen between 20-30 million views.

April the giraffe is 15-years-old and is expecting a calf with her mate, Oliver. Park officials say April could give birth at any moment, but now the world might not get to see it.

Park officials say YouTube has pulled their live stream due to "pornographic content.

"For the millions of you that have been tuning in to take witness to this educational experience, a live giraffe birth, there are a handful of extremists and animal rights activists that may not agree with us, and that's okay, but have unfortunately reported our YouTube cam as sexually explicit or nude content, which has made for its removal," park officials said on Facebook Live.

According to YouTube's guidelines:

"Sexually explicit content like pornography is not allowed. Videos containing fetish content will be removed or age-restricted depending on the severity of the act in question. In most cases, violent, graphic, or humiliating fetishes are not allowed to be shown on YouTube."

The announcement seemed to have many viewers puzzled. One person commented, "Does this mean the animals in the zoo will soon be wearing cloths?"

"Good post Nym. Bix is right on with the question, "If they can steer storms to Oroville, why can't they steer storms away from Oroville?". And lets not forget, Trumps in charge. Is he going to be in charge of a false flag. Maybe California should have voted for him. He's also in charge of sending thousands of more troops to the Russian border and demanding Russia give back Crimea. Things may not be what they appear to be. as usual."

"These entities see themselves as a complete and separate structure of government. They also function as a complete and separate ideological structure of government: Their duty "challenge the edicts drawn up in the Oval Office. For years this group has considered themselves “the untouchables”. NOW....ALL FIRED."

The term “shadow government” is not a construct of critics; it’s actually the term the professional bureaucrats within the 7th floor of the Washington DC based Department of State gave to themselves.

The career political operatives who reign within the State Department openly view themselves as a distinctly separate state governing authority, with no attachment to the policies or objectives of the United States presidency or any mere elected official therein.

For years this group has considered themselves “the untouchables”.

They live a life of high financed indulgence including: massive expense accounts, chartered airline travel, swanky cocktail parties, expense chauffeurs to take their kids to private school, seasonally designed home decor – appointed by only the very best interior designers, personal security to keep the commoners away, tickets to the best venues and reserved seating at elite DC restaurants.

With first rights to the budget expenditures, the 7th floor group finds no indulgence too extravagant for their intellectual elitism.  They demand nothing but the finest because they are the most worthy of the DC professionally privileged – who are more equal than others; and after all, their jobs require them to host and visit like-minded diplomats, and celebrities with exclusive tastes from around the world.

Today, this elite crew collectively choked on their crust-less triangle sandwiches:

    WASHINGTON DC – […]  Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed.

    […]  Two sources also told CBS News that Ambassador Kristie Kenney, the Counselor of the State Department and one of the last remaining senior officials, was informed that she will be let go. She is a career foreign service officer who had served as an ambassador under Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton. Her staff was told that Secretary Tillerson does not intend to fill the counselor’s position anytime soon.

    […]  “It is irresponsible to let qualified, nonpartisan, experienced people go before you have any idea of their replacement. You can’t do foreign policy by sitting in the White House, just out of your back pocket,” explains Tom Countryman, Former Assistant Secretary for Non-Proliferation who was let go earlier this month.

    Countryman worries that the White House is displaying an intent not rely on the State Department for foreign policy in that no one will be in place to challenge the edicts drawn up in the Oval Office.  (read more)

Ah yes, who will remain to “challenge the edicts of the Oval Office“?   Yes, that’s what they see as ‘THEIR JOB’.    Those,.. those… White House vulgarians are merely peon elected officials who represent the far inferior riff-raff types with lesser intellect and class.

Oh, the horror of it all…

These entities see themselves as a complete and separate structure of government. They also function as a complete and separate ideological structure of government:

Deconstruction and realignment while simultaneously managing/controlling the amount of damage these internal agents will do toward the larger Trump administration objectives is a tenuous undertaking.

Secretary Rex Tillerson is tasked with taking the corrupt and rotting vehicle down to the frame and cutting out the cancerous rust.  This is yet another epic battle with ZERO Washington DC supporters as Trump and T-Rex endeavor through the restoration phase.

We shall now see if the UniParty (Democrat and Republican) will try to impede such an effort:

    “There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new order of things. … Whenever his enemies have occasion to attack the innovator they do so with the passion of partisans, while the others defend him sluggishly so that the innovator and his party alike are vulnerable.”
