Isn’t this just a GREAT idea? Imagine what a world we would have if a generation of kids grew up confident, competent, intelligent, compassionate and sane?
I don’t usually indulge in name calling, but I just found this interesting and satirical write up, I think my conservative friends will appreciate it….
A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. The chemical symbol of Pelosium is Pu. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.
When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates MSNBCobnoxium and CNNadnausium, both elements that radiate orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since they have half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.
Since it has no electrons, Pelosium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Pelosium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second. In the presense of anti-morons, Pelosium can be extremely corrosive. Botox seems to distort and smooth it’s surface, without impeding it’s ongoing decay.
Pelosium has a normal half-life of approximately two years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a transmutation, appearing in a new location but displaying the same properties. In this process, assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each transmutation.
Research at other laboratories indicates that Pelosium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, universities, and anywhere there is news coverage occurring. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.
Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.
Some really interesting data on flows and illusions.
I have had the occasional person ask me about handling cholesterol without statins. For obvious reasons. Statins are more dangerous than cholesterol! As a matter of fact, cholesterol is not even dangerous! There has never been a study that linked cholesterol to higher risk of heart attack or stoike and people over 60 with low cholesterol have a highr risk of dying from heart disease than those with high cholesterol! Nevertheless, arterial health is highly desirable so this is worth reading.
And if US$70 a month for another supplement is a tad more than you want to spend, check out your green grocer for some bergamot!
According to Merck scientists serving as whistleblowers on research fraud regarding the MMR vaccine from over a decade ago, the FDA’s approval of the vaccine was not only based on false information, but it also caused an outbreak of Measles in 2006. The vaccine was reportedly tested against phony laboratory strains of viruses instead of being tested against those that are floating around in the real world. Is this fraudulent behavior from Big Pharma?
A friend called Carl writes:
I’m going to have my say about DRUGS and testing them to make it “safer” for users at music events.
Un-friend me if you want; try and argue with me if your have to. But, I’ve seen the effects drugs have on people, throughly, from both sides of the fence.
Back in the day I took a LOT of drugs. Many of you would be surprised by this. When I quit I spent years helping many people get off them and detox on a full-time basis.
So, I consider myself very well experienced and knowledgeable in the area.
The pills some people are wanting to test are made of chemicals, fundamentally they are poisonous. Just because they are tested and passed by some “arbitrary” standard doesn’t mean they aren’t harmful.
Overdosing can happen to anyone at anytime. An overdose is caused by the bodies system (the kidneys) releasing too much of the chemical into the body’s system rather than detoxifying and expelling it from the body. This can happen to a long time user or a first time user.
It really has nothing to do with the “quality” of the drug; it has to do with how the individuals body copes with the poison. The affects a person feels, aka the “high” is caused by poisoning the body.
What’s really needed is EDUCATION.
Those calling for drug testing are uneducated and quite frankly irresponsible—not unlike the makers and dealers themselves.
Proper education is what’s needed. When that’s in place the DRUG USE WILL DROP to the point that only those interested in either killing themselves or killing others by supplying the poison will take them.
I understand and appreciate that some drugs are needed for medical reasons and I’m not opposed to them.
Tuesday’s interim report on the twice-evacuated Opal tower, by engineering professors Hoffman, Cart and Foster, tells us the building is structurally sound, in that it (probably) won’t fall down, but has major damage. Two causes are pinpointed: faulty design, using lower-than-required safety factors, and poor construction, deviating from both design and good practice. The building, as you know, is pretty ornery to look at. A green glass faceted triangle far taller than any neighbours, its look of soulless oppression is relieved only by a number of tall “slots” or “vertical gardens”, walled in six-storey pre-cast load-bearing concrete. It’s in these walls, and the beams supporting them, that the damage has principally occurred. But what’s fascinating about this appalling concatenation of errors and deceits is the degree to which it is systemic. We don’t know how widespread building disasters are because no-one is collecting data, but as the UNSW City Futures Research Institute recently wrote, our “system allowing defective apartment buildings” creates huge social and economic risks for the new compact city. https://www.smh.com.au/national/welcome-to-the-faulty-towers-state-where-any-mug-s-an-engineer-20190117-p50s14.html
