WTF are we even talking about here.

Global warming in one word: Greenland

It was confusing and unclear. But your other words helped.

LOL. When I typed it, I was thinking it was redundant and could be much simpler.

  • simply = self evident
  • it should or must be done = redundant same diff
  • it is the right thing to do = same but different
  • is indeed without a doubt = redundant same diff again
  • real = authentically redundant again

Simplified : " Who ever helps others, as it's the right thing to do, is a superhero. "

They were in Switzerland but I think the DDoS forced them to move on.

Today I learned that Heather O'Rourke, the little girl from Steven Spielberg's "Poltergeist", officially died of "infection caused by a ruptured bowel" after filming Poltergeist III. Again, she died of rectal trauma at the ripe old age of 12. Spielberg flew on Epstein's jet. by Chipit in conspiracy

Agreed, except the last part.

Chronic constipation, possibly medically induced, or worse things - we can't ever know what happened, but I wouldn't count him in or out without more evidence. There's more to the story.

Spielberg is certainly no stranger to stretching and twisting the truth for his propaganda.

The Fountainhead was by Ayn Rand in 1943 (with a movie I haven't seen yet), who is also notable for 1957's Atlas Shrugged, both fiction among others in non-fiction.

You didn't get very specific.

It really depends what kind of philosophy you like with your novel - how deep, and what for, or what freedoms you seek. All these have very deep and quirky ideas about all sorts of stuff - and there are so many in between. Depends how much story you want and how much philosophy - or how much you like drugs and innerspace or on the road shamanism or sci-fi and outerspace or something formal.

Yep. My brothers have 2 girls and one of each and none of them went into scouts/guides. No one to pass down my valuable junk. I don't know what changed in scouts or culture since the 80s to make it less of an option that anything else, like say piano lessons, swimming, or other sports. There's no shortage of scouts in the movies. I was out by 13 or 14 as it wasn't really cool enough for me in highschool, I'd got to the top, and I wasn't interested in Venturers or military after that.

Boobs and weed were not really an option for me until the last couple years of highschool, though there was no shortage of effort on my part. Then I moved out at 16 and again at 17 and had other things to worry about and went to college early.

Sailing was great. Get your son into that! No rush (unless you like racing), unlike stink (motor) boats - pitting you against nature, or you with nature. A handy skill that also teaches physics and other skills.

My scouting had little to nothing to do with the sea, sadly - in either place. I started as a Sea Scout in London, moved to Windsor to a new land scout troop and kept my uniform. By shirt was navy blue instead of forest green, and the US had beige shirts. In those days the borders were much more open and we all crossed over often for jamborees etc.

I mean, I don't think that's where it got its name.

" In the 10th century it was settled by Vikings (or at least a small part of it was), and to this day it is part of the Kingdom of Denmark. "

" According to the Icelandic Sagas, Erik the Red chose the name "Greenland" to entice settlers from Iceland. In fact, Greenland has far more ice cover (about 84% of its surface area) than Iceland does, but the southern coasts the Vikings settled are green in summer, and were likely more so during the Medieval Warm Period.

Women for Trump vs. women for Sanders by Chipit in PoliticalHumor

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I guess, but I hardly think Trump is really in favour of freedom - other than freedom for the ruling class.

Trump doesn't dislike Islam. He shared that glowing ball with Saudi's who host the worst kind, Wahhabism, the real bad apples of all the Muslims.

America's enemies are just largely propagandists ideas.

And Sanders is an old fashioned centrist, with the spine of a jellyfish. He can talk a lot of good stuff, but gets none done - and he was a coward when it counted in 2016.

What Were the Australian Bushfires Really About? (23:44) ~ Corbett Report Extras, 2020-02-11 by JasonCarswell in Australia

Believe?

I've driven through the Cali fires in 2006, between SF and LA on the way to Joshua Tree.

I've seen the eucalyptus trees, especially on the way to Muir Woods, etc. They imported eucalyptus to SF to grow great forests for lumber - but they brought the wrong kind, so now Cali is infested with twisted eucalyptus that is NOT good lumber - AND it all smells terrible like cat piss.

I've burned hundreds of Xmas trees on the beach in San Fran (an annual event), and HOLY FUCKING SHIT they go up FAST!

I don't know. My grandfather worked with wood - but never with eucalyptus. Hard wood is more intense, takes longer to grow, and is more powerpacked than light pine. Without research my best guess - maybe.

But you've given me something to think on, maybe look up, and certainly something keep an ear open for.

I'm not sure that's true. Or that being green automatically means it used to be much warmer. Though it's common knowledge that they could switch Greenland and Iceland names to be more accurate. Also that would be Climate Change, not just Global Warming.

Good skills. Lazarus was a neat trick too. He should resurrect himself and save us now. I'd prefer water turned to ketamine. Less needed, might be easier.

Similarly, the Bodhisattva is my super hero. Wish I were so zen. To leave the world, shamanically (not as a priest under "leadership", and not as an astronaut), and to return - transformed as a Buddha.

As far as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse goes, I finally watched it. I knew it was amazing and procrastinated until I was ready to study it. A decent strong story with a dynamic exploratory vision with an exceptional team to pull it off. Major milestones in groundbreaking animation were achieved on many many levels - from subtle characterizations to compositing design in motion to epic visual grandeur to completely original action and cinematography never seen before.

Fair enough. I suppose civil war will either happen after the breaking point in the wreckage - or happen before to expedite issues - all undoubtedly according to "their" plans.

I'm writing a story set around 2045-2050, because I can't imagine things past the singularity. And half the stuff I imagine becomes real too soon. (I've been working on it since 2001.) It starts in Canada, into the Atlantic, then to Venezuela, then space. I manage to avoid the USA yet have it be a terrible place to avoid at all costs. Maybe you can pitch in 2 cents when I have it more presentable.

SaidIt is not an exception to political correctness either. Apparently many folks on SaidIt get offended by sexual humour and make enough stink about it to get M7 burdened (and offended). (Meanwhile there's no shortage of racist, anti-gay, anti-Muslim, and anti-commie sentiment.) Comedy's gone totally tragic.

Fire is powerful stuff. So is weather. Living in the desert you see some interesting effects of thermals - and then add fire to it and it's even more interesting. Fly safe, only in the mornings. San Francisco is cold and foggy in the summer (and Oakland is always perfect) because of the inland thermals.

I thought the ash was blown from Australia to New Zealand. I don't buy that it'd still be burning.

She was skeptical of the official narrative. She may not be 100% correct. Corbett may not 100% agree.

It seems like a long leap to consider Corbett compromised for that.

My screenplay/graphic novel is far from ready to even be read much less be blocked. They might preemptively censor it, but I assure you nothing in it is gross or sexual. But I hope my ideas are offensive to the establishment and revolutionary, maybe only in spirit, or hopefully as a catalyst for a movement (unless there's already a movement I'm unaware of).

Fashion photographer would have been in my top 10 choices if animator wasn't an option for me.

Fashion photographer Sam was my housemate in San Francisco, ~2000-2002, back when we were all trying to survive the DotBomb - the first crash of internet funding. We lived in an old building in SoMa, at 6th and 985 Howard (now available), in the worst neighbourhood (no problems though, besides being downstream of a wailing fire station on a one-way street). I painted the 2rd floor floor, and later took the valences and book shelf back to Toronto : https://infogalactic.com/info/User:JasonCarswell/gallery#Furniture_design_2001-2003 Digital cameras weren't much of a thing back then.

It's nice to see his work after so long. I haven't been in touch with my SF and Burning Man folks for about a decade. To see Instagram images I was forced to finally sign up for the first time - so old Facebook friends are now rediscovering me.

It depends on the train - passenger or freight - and where - city vs rural - and when - rush hour, day, night, etc. And each region might have their own laws or bi-laws.

If you're gonna go, keep it simple, take everything west of the continental division line. (Ha! Imagine the USA "sharing" a mountain ridge without demanding supremacy.) And even still Nevada has so much entrenched military that it makes it silly to assume that the eastern border would be secure against the US if California were to actually Calexit.

It is depressing. It was once a good institution, IMO. My Dad was a Queen Scout, equivalent of a Eagle Scout. Then I and my 2 younger brothers all became Chief Scouts. (Same thing but after 1980 or 1981 Canada became a dominion no longer ruled by the Queen. LOL. Meanwhile the Governor General, aka, Chief of Canada answered directly to the Queen only.) I was also a Sea Scout, who sailed, and was the first Chief Sea Scout in SW Ontario, maybe further, and maybe the second last (my brother was one too).

Some of our leaders were better than others, obviously, like anything, ie. teachers, ministers, etc. But we never even considered sexual abuse or anything like that. The occasional dirty joke, trying to smoke, and in-fighting was the closest we'd get to doing anything "bad".

Now there's no time for the great out doors when there are video games where you can explore the great outdoors of virtually any planet, fictional or not.

But why would one question why they hated the Jews? They just did. No more need be said. They hate us for our freedoms.

It's okay. There are at least 50 museums in Europe all about the genocide of the First Nations Indians, the genocide of the Irish, and the African (and White) slave trades. But only since the 1970's.

He conspired with anyone with leaks. He's also a limited hangout. There's no shortage of evidence on 9/11 or on Israel influence and corruption - yet they release soooooo very little on that.

Now, unless I think about it, by default, they're all text without limit, easy control of the thumbnail generally, and I can keep my side comments off the post title lists for those who care to read (though opposite for some reason in this case), and other things. Also, M7 doesn't like me including the date in the post title if it's within a month.

I haven't been putting the time and effort into posting as I had in the past. Obviously it irked you enough to comment. Sorry about that. I'll try to be more aware if I can avoid the extra expando click.

It depends. If you seek basic and/or non-political information it's terrific. If you want information on tensegrity, Karlis Johansons, a list of hyperboloid structures, or open source. (Some things I contributed significantly to.)

Snopes claims to be truth buster so I never reference it except in spite and satire. They're not on the same level at all.

Not all people take them as gospel, and certainly not everyone on SaidIt. I suppose I could include a read-at-your-own-discretion - RAYOD warning and/or "Trust but verify."

I wonder how much people have donated to Assange and his campaign.

Does he need money, just good lawyers, and/or a fair chance?

A saidit formatting oddity, how can I fix it? by kazenmusic in AskSaidIt

Double space at the end of a line or paragraph = line break aka </br>

If you put a dash "-" in the line before a line or paragraph you'll get a nice space between, bigger than the default, as the space above this sentence is bigger than the default between the first two lines. If you put a dash with a space or more it becomes a bullet point.

 

If you use an "&" followed by "nbsp;" followed by two line ending spaces after it you get the biggest space (an empty line) above this line. That non-breaking-space (plus 2 spaces) can be used as much...

 

 

 

 

 

 

...as you like.

 

I haven't seen your formatting issue but I'm curious about it. The wiki page above is open to additions + improvements.

The Seed

Just like the seed
I don’t know where to go
Through dirt and shadow I grow
I’m reaching light through the struggle
Just like the sea, I’m chasing the wonder
I unravel myself, all in slow motion.

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money oh no
When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, You cannot eat money oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money oh no
When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, You cannot eat money oh no

Suffocate me, so my tears can be rain
I will water the ground where I stand
So that the flowers can grow back again

cause just like the sea, everything want to live
We are burning our fingers
But we learn and forgive

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money oh no
When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, You cannot eat money oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money oh no
When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, You cannot eat money oh no

Feed me sunlight, feed me air
Feed me truth and feed me prayers
Feed me sunlight, feed me air
Feed me truth and feed me prayers

I see images of Killer whales

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money oh no
When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, You cannot eat money oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money oh no
When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, You cannot eat money oh no

I always find interest in the inter-meshed histories across lifespans of artists and their contemporaries in their eras. Genesis is quite different than where Gabriel meandered to where he is now - yet a few things haven't changed. Same with the others. Nice link. Thanks.

Willem Dafoe is one of the good ones, so far as I know.

Why don't you like Wikipedia, besides all their censorship, unipolar propaganda, distorted history, etc? It's a fine starting point for the "official narrative", and enough for folks to start for a basic reference.

I used to travel a LOT. Only 8 years ago that all stopped. All of my rambling was only within North America - from Alaska to Florida, from Mexico to Newfoundland. So my list from those above is short.

Paris (Ontario)
Haight-Ashbury
Kingston (Ontario)
Sudbury
Lexington (Ontario)
San Jose
San Frandisco
New York
Toronto

My two uncles with very different paths are the most world-traveled people I've ever known in person. I suspect they've got quite the lists each.

Joseph Atwill's book and documentary "Caesar's Messiah" about his ideas on the origins of the messiah, Jesus Christ.

CAESAR'S MESSIAH: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus - OFFICIAL VERSION (1:23:10) ~ CAESAR'S MESSIAH, 2018-09-15

Show notes:

" Seven of today's most controversial Bible scholars reveal their shocking conclusions about the origins of Christianity. Based on the best-selling religious studies book by Joseph Atwill, this documentary shows that Jesus is not a historical figure, the events of Jesus' life were based on a Roman military campaign, his supposed second coming refers to a historical event that already occurred, the teachings of Christ came from the ancient pagan mystery schools, and the Gospels were written by a family of Caesars and their supporters, who left us documents to prove it. "

" Dissecting the history and literature of this time, the scholars show that the Gospels are a sophisticated pro-Roman multi-layered allegorical text that could not have been written by simple Jewish fishermen. Noting that the history officially provided by the Church does not hold up to rigorous scrutiny, the scholars agree that Christianity was used as a political tool to control the masses of the day, and is still being used this way today. "

" Much like the ancient era from which Christianity emerged, we are currently on the brink of an immense paradigm shift, and studying this history can help us understand modern-day politics, and give us the much-needed perspective for coming up with solutions to today's problems, in order to create the better world that we envision. "

" Featured scholars are Joseph Atwill, Robert Eisenman, John Hudson, Kenneth Humphreys, Rod Blackhirst, Acharya S / D.M. Murdock, and Timothy Freke. "

Socialism is how you have an Army, a Navy, the Marines, an Air Force, NASA, the Space Force, CIA, FBI, NSA, Homeland Security, Guantanamo Bay, endless perpetual wars, governments that deny you health care yet force a police state upon you with an excessive prison industrial complex, Big Pharma industrial complex, disaster capitalism, and now surveillance capitalism.

You can't have capitalism without the socialism safety net for the powers that be. They will let all of it crumble - except the government, their banks, and their military/police.

Too big to fail is socialism that means you're too small to succceed.
