Worth while and funny.
 
Have YOU subscribed to Charlie Hebdo yet?

The perfect way to both support Charlie Hebdo and say "fuck you" to violent extremists is to subscribe to the magazine. 

At the time of the attack, the publication was struggling financially and had only 30,000 subscribers. Can we make it a million? 

I found out that in the United States you can subscribe on Amazon.com, which is where I subscribed: 

http://www.amazon.com/Charlie-Hebdo/dp/B00007LMFU/ref=sr_1_1?s=magazines&ie=UTF8&qid=1420759018&sr=1-1&keywords=charlie+hebdo

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance... but for now, the price of freedom is $186.25 plus tax. 

From +The New Yorker: "The murders in Paris were so specific and so brazen as to make their meaning quite clear. The cartoonists died for an idea. The killers are soldiers in a war against freedom of thought and speech, against tolerance, pluralism, and the right to offend—against everything decent in a democratic society. So we must all try to be Charlie, not just today but every day."

"The breakthrough came after the scientists replaced the traditional graphite that makes up the anode (the negative pole of the battery) in lithium-ion batteries with a new gel material made from titanium dioxide nanotubes that they created themselves."
Reseachers have developed a groundbreaking new lithium ion battery that charges super quickly and lasts ten times longer than today’s batteries

Finally, some good news to report on the Ebola front: Nigeria and Senegal are now completely free of the disease. Here's how they contained the outbreak — and why the world needs to take notice.

Truth
 
“.. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the 'Momentary' masters of a 'Fraction' of a 'Dot' ”

Fyi -- all proceeds to the 12 families


Paris (AFP) - The "survivors' issue" of Charlie Hebdo will also be sold outside France next week because of the massive world attention for the satirical weekly following the massacre of its top staff -- a turnaround for a publication that just a week ago was on the brink of folding.

"If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?" ~ Frederic Bastiat

Why am I getting these damned Jesus posts in my stream? It doesn't say Hot nor am I part of that group. Probably 20-30 over the last few weeks.

Ok so it's Sunday Morning.  I've been invited to a church to watch a couple friends do a recital.  I found out yesterday and that's a full church service during which they'll do the recital.  The last time I went to a hymn singing with this group, it wasn't a service, just singing.   Sure it was JC singing, but singing is fun, so i can get behind that.  My question is, is it rude to bring a book, hang out in the back and stay seated until the recital?  You should note these are mainly friends, but I do work with them.
