01) Energy drinks: power or poison?


“There are dozens of so-called “energy drinks” on the market today. They promise to be magic elixirs that will keep you awake, give you superpowers, etc., but what are they really, and how (or do) they work? Here we delve into the chemistry behind what goes in to these mysterious glowing liquids, and what that chemistry does to the human body.”

01) Nintendo Cracks Down on ROM Sites – #CUPodcast

Nintendo Goes After Rom Sites/HUGE Lawsuit Threat:

I agree with this…

…Nintendo needs to recognize there is an existing, enthusiastic market for ROMs, and open up it’s own ROM website, to sell it’s old games…It’s not as if they couldn’t create their own console emulator.

…So, why don’t they get in on this?…It would remove the excuse, that the games aren’t available any other way.

Heck…there would be no physical product…so, they could offer their library of old games cheap.

If they sold their ROMs for $1 to $5 a piece…I’ll bet they’d make some pretty good money…Of course, they’d probably price games from the previous console or two higher…maybe, $10 to $15 a piece…if they were the huge titles, anyway…

…But, still…they should look into getting into this…There is a serious market there.

Viewing child abuse images as bad as direct abuse, says solicitor general…

01) Viewing child abuse images as bad as direct abuse, says solicitor general

Thanks to feinmann0!

“‘Paedophiles who download or share child abuse images should receive the same punishment as those who abuse children themselves, according to the solicitor general. Robert Buckland QC said downloading and sharing such images was just as “insidious” as direct sexual abuse, as he announced plans to extend the unduly lenient sentencing scheme to indecent images offences.’

Oh, so if you are not a paedo, then it is OK to download or share? A distinct feeling of deja vue … didn’t the FBI claim several years back that every time a ‘child pornography’ image is viewed, the child in the photographed is sexually abused?”

Boy…Robert’s really out for blood, isn’t he?

Robert clearly believes in voodoo molestation…The thought, is the crime…

This is probably one of the better pieces of photographic, BL/MAP art…every bit as much for the words, as for anything else.

The Political Deplatforming of Alternative Media…

01) The Political Deplatforming of Alternative Media


“They want you gone, forever, and they won’t stop.”

A public backlash may prove to be the best thing, that Alex Jones has ever been linked with…and to that extent, Alex might prove to be useful.

I would welcome such a backlash…

…Just because I’m not “Gung Ho!”, about people ignoring the nuances at play, or the re-spinning of Alex’s history, does not mean that I think these banishments should be happening…I do hope that point is understood…

I hate the dogmatic reactions I’m witnessing…and that’s what I’ve been responding to.

As to Alex “never swearing”…

…There is at least one video out there…a compilation of Alex swearing…including “fuck” and “shit”…

…I’m not sure if these were taken from his main broadcasts…but, he was in his studio and on set, during some clips…Those seem to be taken from his shows.

Let’s be clear:

The SJWs who are doing this, are internet cancer…They can take their dogmatic ideology, and underhanded tactics to silence people, and shove them up their noses…

…Those are the sorts of people, who should be banished from the internet…at least until they learn to respect what the internet is, what it is for…and what it is about.

…This is not a “black and white” issue, however…

…And the threat that a lot of established people are feeling, is a threat that’s been alive and well on these platforms, for years.

Most people just didn’t seem to care about it, until it started making them feel insecure about their own standing with the platform…

…And maybe I’m responding to that, every bit as much as I’m responding to the other things…

…I’ve been saying for many years…to the more typical people who pretend the strong armed silencing of MAPs “is justified”…you wont be at all pleased about it, when this exact same establishment, using these exact same tactics, starts targeting and hounding you

…Things should not have been allowed to get this bad.

…though, maybe it’s for the better they did…

…More people are waking up, to realize what’s been going on.

Monsanto Ordered To Pay $289 Million To Man With Cancer…

01) Monsanto Ordered To Pay $289 Million To Man With Cancer


“A California jury on Friday ordered Monsanto to award $289 million in damages to a former school groundskeeper who claims the company’s weed killer, Roundup, gave him terminal cancer. The decision, which Monsanto has said it will appeal, could open the floodgates for thousands of other pending lawsuits claiming the herbicide causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Here’s what happened: A jury in the San Francisco Superior Court sided with claims made by DeWayne “Lee” Johnson that years of working with Roundup and Ranger Pro, both made by Monsanto, gave him terminal cancer. They awarded him $289 million in damages — $39 million in compensatory damages, the rest in punitive damages…

This guy’s probably going to end up spending a lot of his remaining time, on court related matters. 328 million dollars is a lot of money…of course, they’re going to fight it…And in this day and age, even those of us who rarely handle products like that, wonder what it might do to us…Deciding to be in that line of work, may not be the wisest thing ever…

I wonder about the future of life on this planet…when large businesses are allowed to produce and put this sort of thing, into the environment.

Alex Jones Somehow Getting Crazier…

01) Alex Jones Somehow Getting Crazier


“Alex Jones learned nothing from having his entire YouTube channel deleted, but maybe a week suspension from Twitter will work?!?

After a week of backlash, Twitter has finally suspended the two accounts maintained by far-right conspiracy theorist and Infowars personality Alex Jones — but only for a week.

Twitter first suspended Jones’s personal account after he tweeted a video on Tuesday, August 14 in which he called for his followers to ready their “battle rifles” to act against a wide array of opponents, including the mainstream media — a clear violation of Twitter’s content policy against speech or groups that “use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.”

Notably, Jones made the video while using the Twitter-owned live-streaming service Periscope — essentially the only live-streaming platform he hasn’t been banned from since YouTube, Facebook, and other major social media sites moved to ban him and remove his content.
