Traffic to Amsterdam was unusually crowded yesterday. Amazingly, it kept flowing.

The title is really all you need. Powerful story.
Read this shocking account of how U.S. Iraq War veterans had their 9/11 patriotism crushed & replaced with something far more alarming… Someone asked: How do you Americans as a people walk...

Intense story. More proof that the current issues in the Middle East mostly started after the USA invaded Iraq. It got even worse after they left when their excuses for being there ran out, leaving a power vacuum which resulted in the rise of ISIS.

On the true origin of the moon and our planet.
 
The Moon, as Moraney telepathically told Collier, originated in a star system located 432 light years from Earth, in the constellation Ursa Minor. Called “CHOWTA” by the Andromedans, this binary star system is enormous, holding 21 planets and four dozen moons. The moon we now call our own once orbited the 17th planet in the Chowta system, called Maldek. The Andromedans revealed to Collier that the Moon is 6,2 billion years old. This means it is older than our Solar System and couldn’t have possibly begun its existence here: http://humansarefree.com/2015/07/the-moon-conspiracy-fully-exposed.html
In his book Letters from Andromeda , contactee Alex Collier details the conversations he had with te...

CHOWTA . . . because the Andromedans are from Maine!

Interesting that he presents them both in such a poetic way: a+b+a=b. I wonder if that's why.

Kids are weird.

Since everybody is sharing their gamer profile, here's mine.

It looks quite odd, but that's probably because I like very different games, and have very different agendas in each. I play turn-based strategy games at the highest difficulty while looking for a challenge, and CRPGs at low difficulty looking for immersion, story, interesting characters, etc.

The survey doesn't really seem to take into account that you might have different agendas in different games. Stuff that I enjoy in some games but not in others, ends up pretty low as a result. (It is true that I really do not care for action and twitchiness no matter what the game is.)

Also note that this is about computer games. In board games or RPGs, agendas are again totally different. I expect Social and Creativity to be way higher there. But my computer gaming is almost entirely single player.

Yep. That poem choked me up right here on the train.

I don't want to hear anyone complain about the longevity of CFL bulbs anymore.

The light in our indoor storage recently broke and needed replacement. Opening the fixture, out comes a really massive, heavy bulb. Philips SL*18, it says. So I google it. One of the first hits is someone on an antique lamp site looking for an SL 18, "preferably working", and also mentions a later addition to the range from the early 1990s. A bit more googling leads me to a reference from 1984. Then one from a museum listing it as one of the first CFLs, introduced in 1981.

It was still working a week ago. Not very reliably anymore (sometimes it was mysteriously not working, and a few hours later it'd work fine again, and sometimes it buzzed), but still, I had no idea lamps could even get that old.

Anyone interested in an antique?

Does GenCon have massive birds of prey? We do.

(I like how the tiny ones in the foreground try to look just as mean as the big ones in the back.)

Maybe I should post a close up of the big ones. They don't look nearly as impressive on this one.

Perhaps not the wisest challenge.

It's because of my stupid phone. It doesn't orientate photos correctly, and when I rotate them in the G+ app on the phone, I get the weird white space. Sometimes. The other photos I gave the exact same treatment, did turn out alright. But once I've got the weird white space, there seems to be no way to undo it.
