EARTH DISCOVERS NEIGHBOUR, BUYS GUN FOR PROTECTION


    NATURE magazine’s big story that grabbed headlines around the world today – that an exoplanet near Alpha Centari, which orbits our nearest neighbouring sun, has the potential to harbour life similar to that on earth, is the stuff of science fiction. However, what I found most thrilling was the news that its ‘4.2 lightyears away’ was not an inconceivable…

BOMBS AWAY! GIVING SHIMP FINGERS KEYS TO THE ATOMIC ARSENAL


As the mainstream white-bread, podunk, hillbilly electorate in America prepares to ascend a racist, orange spray tanned human shit pile to the presumptive Republican nominee for President – it reminded me of the very real and very fearful prospect that the PT Barnum of the political podium of our times may, in fact, have access to Nuclear weapons one day…

THE WORM IN TIM COOK’S APPLE: CHINA HAS BACKDOOR FBI CAN’T ENTER


Apple has always been an iconic brand wrapped in hypocrisy. On the one hand – everyone loves its products, it’s held up as a champion of American innovation, progress and creativity. It is also a vicious exploiter of cheap labour in China, a blatant tax dodger and giant corporate entity that will stifle competition and shelter is vast wealth – tens…

AI WEIWEI POSES AS DROWNED SYRIAN CHILD FLEEING TO EUROPE


INCREDIBLY POWERFUL. Ai Weiwei, one of foremost artist-activits of the modern era, shames the west with a simple yet powerful recreated image. The death of this child, who was fleeing to Canada, should forever serve as a haunting albatross, chained to the necks of the feckless politicians who let this humanitarian disaster fester.

CNN BUSY JERKING OFF TO TRUMP WHILE 10000 SYRIAN KIDS VANISH


  I have little time and patients for 99% of mainstream media coverage. Not out of some misguided sense of right-wing fear mongering that the ‘leftist’ agenda is out to get us, but that real issues where lives are literally hanging in the balance are ignored for fluff and bullshit. 10,000 Syrian refugee children are missing. That’s according to the European…

So much can be said about the bronzed buffoon that is Donald Trump.., but really, why not leave it to those who have a far better sense of comedic timing than I do. I give you The Late Show incineration of this mighty ass-clown. (Oh, and when you’re finished – check…

DARTH VADER STILL ALIVE? IS SNOKE REALLY ANAKIN SKYWALKER?


I love a good conspiracy theory. Most are total garbage, but sometimes one comes along that you can’t help but give pause for thought… this might be one of them. Besides the fact it’s a terrible name for a main villain (Snoke?? Really??), there seems to be a compelling argument to be made that Snoke from, Star Wars: The Force Awakens,…

TWO GREAT LINKS TO UNDERSTAND ISIS/IL, PARIS AND THE ALLIES


Much is, can and will be said about the ghastly horrors committed in Paris, last Friday night. Rather than offer my own opinion, I would encourage all my readers to check out these links.   The first, from The Atlantic, helps put into perspective the ideological standpoint of ISIS/IL.       The other, written by the UK Telegraph’s Middle…

ITALY INVESTIGATING 6 BIG BRANDS FOR OLIVE OIL FRAUD


If you weren’t already aware – chances are the olive oil in your cupboard is neither extra-virgin and probably not 100% made from olives, either. Oh, and that bullshit ‘made in Italy’ stamp – well, that has about as much credibility as the Vatican on protecting children. If you haven’t seen it – the New York Times did a great animation…

LOOK INSIDE A DOOMSDAY BUNKER BUILT FOR A BILLIONAIRE


With the low, yet still credible, possibility that America will end up with the President it so richly deserves… either wack-a-doodle Ben Carson or the Angry Orange xenophobe … maybe it’s time to start thinking ahead to what kind of future that will mean. *shudders* With an endless array of possibilities for how these guys could tank our collective futures, maybe…

WHY VOLKSWAGEN, GERMANY & EUROPEAN UNION ARE CO-CONSPIRATORS


The revelation (that had been common knowledge within the industry) that Volkswagen had been using special software to falsify emissions tests was a sad and sobering reminder – giant corporations can screw people and our planet – at will. Don’t forget, when VW’s president stepped down soon after the scandal broke, the new millionaire German white guy they put in…
