So tired, but the show must go on...

Thanks Kat, RPJ, & Holly.

Quote of the Day:

When from our better selves we have too long been parted by the hurrying world, and droop. Sick of its business, of its pleasures tired, how gracious, how benign is solitude.

~ William Wordsworth

The country guaranteed to sell off your holy sites, homes, tigers, and anything else to make money. Communism is not the friend of common sense but is the life partner of the death of human history. I guess you can put a price on ancient wisdom, but just not use or gain anything from it :P

I feel sad for many of the people of China and other communist countries, they have to watch their history and homes be destroyed.

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

The stiff arming of NASA by the DHS is just part of their general social psyop these days. It has nothing to do with security and everything to do with intimidating and cowing people to accept such incursions into their lives for no good reason other than that the DHS say they can. It is just a reenactment of the STASI.

"Apocalyptic visions also help us make sense of an often seemingly senseless world. In the face of confusion and annihilation we need restitution and reassurance. We want to feel that no matter how chaotic, oppressive or evil the world is, all will be made right in the end. The apocalypse as history's end is made acceptable with the belief that there will be a new beginning."

Every time I see Schermer mentioned I think about that comeuppance he had tagging along with the Ghost Adventures crew at Loma Linda Hospital. Schermer actually learned something that night based on real live experience and not just armchair refereeing and academic high horsing.

I wonder if Shermer even likes to read books. He debunked Leslie Kean's UFOs book in New Scientist, by only reading the introduction. He debunked Eben Alexander's Proof Of Heaven, by reading tabloid articles. For science!

Well. my paranoid conspiracy theory about people like Schermer is that they represent forces intent on quashing and delimiting expanded human awareness. I want to know who is "behind" them.

Vertigo 13 issue run in 2002 and later collected in a graphic novel format; so, any good comic store should have them...or library?
