No, it's just beginning! Besides the political roadblock of Bush and his cronies not wanting to admit that they were wrong and suffer the humiliation of having to back out, there are practical problems now that we've got a huge military force in the country. The inertia of an operation like this is considerable, you can't just cut and run even if you didn't care about leaving chaos behind. Even a

Below is an article that I somehow managed to miss until last night. This stem cell therapy is actually identical to the original stem cell therapy found a few years ago except one major difference. The patient's own stem cells are stimulated as opposed to fetal stem cells being reproduced. My thought is this: if we can stimulate our own stem cells to behave in the desired way, then how many oth

4593. Re: FUBAR
The problem is the completely disproportionate level of force they used. They're taking small arms fire from a building and they drop a bomb on it!? They know perfectly well how to counter-fire with snipers and only take out the attackers. They are either being lazy or are deliberately over-responding. I'm slightly suspicious that what Trygve Hogebol wrote in another thread is right : The unrest

I don't have PKU and I am male (females account for 3 of 4 'autoimmune' disorders -- it's a sex-linked chromosone) but I don't get along with aspartame either. I won't eat foods that contain it. It gives me a belly ache, not a headache. I suspect that this is from the trace amounts of methyl alcohol but I haven't done any 'testing' by taking any methyl alcohol on purpose to see if the symptoms ar

Yes, the draft is coming back. Draft boards are being re-staffed. It has been speculated that they were going to wait until after the election to actually announce it, but as badly as things are going their hand may be forced early.

This is a bit woolly even for the Global Village. I have to wonder if you engaging in self-parody? :) Why would the Pentagon want a 'chemical weapon' that takes years to have any effect? As the text cited by the Snopes article points out, aspartame is poisonous because it breaks down into methyl alcohol. The kind of alcohol that you can drink (in moderation) is ethyl alcohol. Methyl alcohol, al

I don't remember reading that Crowley lived with the Wilsons and shot up at their dinner table. But I'm not surprised to hear that he was a junkie... a lot of times, drugs appear to be the pathway into access to the spirit world, altered states of consciousness and thinking, and ultimately illumination. According to RA Wilson, for Joyce, it was alchohol. For Einstein, he gives no indication. Al

That's difficult to say. There are benefits to laying out someone's life in 'linear' fashion, of course. If you get to see his childhood in this 'fundamentalist' sect and the mistreatment he reportedly suffered then his adult hatred of Christianity would be much more understandable, for example. But he had interactions with so many famous people that it could also be worthwhile to skip the 'frami

Plus if he turns out to be made a liar by Rice or bushfraud, bushfraud would be almost assured of a victory and no more people would tackle this issue. THAT would seem to be the greatest danger. If he is a 'plant' who is deliberately attacking so he can be refuted and crushed this will make it nearly impossible to attack Bush on the 911 issue. They've had a couple of years to plan for this el

Yeah, like I said, it will be about the sensationalism. You certainly could make an interesting movie about him. He claimed to have accomplished some unbelievable things, but there are (or were -- this is 50+ years ago now) some witnesses that claimed to have seen him demonstrate some real powers. And he along with the other members of the Golden Dawn really did establish the 'matrix' of modern

Did you get these quotes from Reagan's Reign of Error by Mark Green? That's an excellent source of faux pas and general howlers. He not only constantly says stupid things, he contradicts even himself.

I'd say that The Life of Brian re-release is the counter-punch to The Passion. There's nothing 'religious' about Crowley. This is just an excuse to make a contemporary 'Caligula' with lots of on-screen debauchery. It might well be a counter-punch to the new sanctimony over 'decency' standards in media, though it's probably been in the works since well before the Janet Jackson 'slip' or even Bono

The astrologers have a better handle on this, actually. It's related to the US chart and the next transit likely to trigger it will be in 2005-2006 (it begins right after the next inauguration!) so we might actually see the 'elected in year zero' legend broken if Kerry wins and then dies in office.

They were originally charged with some weapons and immigration violations in the Zimbabwean courts. Since there is no specific law in Zimbabwe against attempting to overthrown a foreign government (this was a coup plot against Equatorial Guinea) the expectation was that they would be deported to South Africa (where most of them are from) and charged there since S.A. does in fact have laws about p

From the "News under the radar" department: There is a strangely high occurence of CJD in southern New Jersey over the last two years or so.

Interesting Slashdot story about RFID today. "RFID Coming 'Whether you like it or not'" But once again the Slashdot community comes through with all sorts of interesting observations, and even some funny stuff. Someone has taken the 'loyalty card' and turned it on its ear by scanning the barcode and printing out labels with his 'unique' barcode and distributing them! Now you too can

It's still there. A shorter story without a 'read more' is below it. Apparently this was what Ahatmose originally noticed. Go to www.memes.org and you can see that the original story "God Save the USA" is still there and intact. You must be having network problems. The site has lots of other interesting stories, too.

As I've posted before, there is a great 'proxy' for controlling your web browsing called Proxomitron. Learn about it at www.proxomitron.info Ouside the Internet, I've been wondering for years why someone hasn't started an 'exchange club' for those 'loyalty' cards. Do they bother to verify your identity when you swipe the card at the grocery store? So why not send your card to someone in another

What's flat-out amazing is that there is nothing about this on any of the mainstream news sites! I've been to ABC and CNN and Foxnews and none of them has any mention of civil unrest in Iran, just the usual stories about roadside bombs in Iraq and suicide bombers in Israel. Hmmm...

Maybe we don't actually own our property. The rumor I've been hearing amongst the 'conspiracy theorist' crowd is that normal 'deeds' to property are not actually iron-clad ownership, only Land Patents are fully bullet-proof. Not being a lawyer, I've tried to do a bit of Googling and found a few references to land patents that seem to indicate they are in fact somehow superior to standard deeds of

As it turns out, someone tried just that. Microwaving your money has an unpleasant, and obvious, side effect. A huge scorch mark when the RFID chip explodes! This obviously defaced money will be a dead giveaway. And btw, it's a federal crime to deface money. Looks like something more subtle than the microwave oven will have to be used to kill RFID chips in money.

As I recall, it was established that the red hair gene found in Neanderthal DNA was different from the modern gene. In fact, they aren't absolutely certain it produced red hair. It just seems that it would have from our current knowledge of genetic mechanics. On the other hand, it looks like the modern gene originates from a single mutation from about 3,000 years back.

These colors are very prominent in alchemy. White is also "silver" and red is also "gold" though most people think of gold as a "yellow" metal. As these colors and metals suggest, white/silver is the emotional nature, and gold/red is the spiritual nature of the adept. Black of course is the "negredo" -- the dark or death phase that the adept must pass throu

First, don't assume that all changes in organisms are because of "evolution" at the genetic level. Dogs are really still wolves. This is shown both in the DNA analysis which we are capable of doing now, and also by the ease with which they interbreed. Wolf-dog hybrids are quite common anywhere the two species come into contact. The main effects of domestication are pretty clearly at

How would we recognize it as "planned" or "designed" if we didn't find any sense or order in it? Would that necessarily prove that there wasn't any? Most would say no, there co

On the other hand, the Native Americans believe(d) that their ancestors were the first people, period.

Yes, I was wondering when someone would realize that boats must have come about just as gradually as any other tools. Because they have to be made of plant materials instead of stone, we don't have the surviving record that we have for many other tools. But primitive man must have realized it was possible to use a log to stay afloat many thousands of years before any sort of craft of boat buildin

Most likely this guy is a descendent of the UK local slave population who were freed by the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833. There were an estimated 200,000 African slaves in the UK itself when the act was passed. While some of them would have tried to return to Africa and find their homes, many just stayed and assimilated into the population.
