Quite startling, how the water levels change. But read the article to see why this is happening, and where it's going. It seems it doesn't take a "totalitarian government" to do stupid, short-sighted things. But hey, enjoy your golf at Vegas, hear? And the water shows.
But sad, almost disgusting to see how lousy the government and its agencies can be. Maybe I want to throw up now.
I certainly have no good feelings about the Fed or our major banks, even if this report DID come from the Fed. Too bad the media didn't do ITS job to highlight things like this. Thanks, Slashdot and "This American Life".
Curiously I can't seem to find the site. And there are very few "Dead Man Zero" hits on Google. The link in the main article doesn't get you there either. (I was going to ask them for a free account, just to foil the NSA or whoever if in fact this _was_ a honeypot.
I wouldn't go to that link if I were you. My office system warned me of a malicious exploit there: "A known bad file was blocked from opening." Program: winners.htm(Exploit)
Might be a false alarm
And Nicuaragua has a wonderful geologic history
Correction: I misunderstood: the bogus "factoid" was an invented paragraph that is no longer on the Wiki page. Explained here: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/...
The picture of the character at the Wikipedia site appears to be real, and was uploaded by someone else entirely.
The reference to the author, Peggy Parrish, appears to be real, a real person, a real author.
Numerous other links to Amelia Bedelia books, stage plays, movies, etc. appear to be valid and real, and date FAR earlier than this purported hoax.
I submit that EJ Dickson, the self-proclaimed hoaxer, is hoaxing us all with a hoax about a non-existing hoax!
""Out of over 9,000 staffers in the House, should we really be banning this whole IP range based on the actions of two or three? "
Yes. It may get the attention of the guilty parties. I, for one, want to see the exact identification of that House representative, the office guilty of this ongoing abuse. Name names, cowards!
- that it'll affect the noise-sensitive mammals (and maybe fish).
- that these endangered and most interesting creatures are important.
- that they don't care
America! F*ck yeah! I guess this is my chance to go down to the Carolina coast and find me a nice Orca skeleton. There should be lots lying around pretty soon. All encased in tons of rotting flesh and blubber, of course, but no worries: I'll just leave that mess for the edification and amusement of the tourists.
All permafrost pretty much looks like that. Tons of images online from Alaska and Canada, none of which have anything to do with natural gas or gas eruptions. The other holes up there don't have huge caverns beneath them (well, so far as we can tell). And the water is relatively shallow.
"There is no enforcement mechanism in the event of a dispute with another country, however.""
A strong navy? Hey, it worked fine for the XYZ Affair
I can see the drone somehow being hit by a fireworks missile, deflecting that missile, and the missile going who knows where? Back down into the crowd (or worse, the launch site)? If it stayed above the explosions, fine; within them, maybe. But fireworks on that scale are risky at best. Throwing a solid object like some of the larger drones into the middle of them just adds to the danger.
But I must say, even if never done again, that's a wonderful video, perhaps the first ever?
What century are we in again?
And there's no putting it back. I'm waiting for the first homemade (well, hobbyist or toy) drone attack. Won't be long. And I'm betting it'll be homegrown, no foreign terrorists required. FAA can regulate all it wants, but those drones are not going away.
