News Briefs 12-01-2017

Why no love for Stranger Things, Golden Globes? Is it because we officially entered the Age of the Upside-Down?

  • Mr. T (ya know, the orange one) just let go all the people in charge of maintaining the US nuclear arsenal --Up.Side.Down amigos.

  • Mythological animal confirmed to be real --Nope, not that one.
  • Week in Weird's Greg Newkirk offers a rather sacrilegous idea of why we'll never find a Bigfoot body.
  • In space, no one can hear you have a total mental breakdown
  • Congrats on your 600 days in orbit with your super-secret robotic space plane, US Air Force. Care to tell us what the hell is doing up there, or do we wait for the Russians to break the news? .
  • Science concludes: Yes, there have been aliens.
  • My last appearance in Radio Misterioso consisted on Greg and I geeking out over The Arrival, musing about UFOs, Language, Time perception and a whole lot more.
  • Why Chomsky's theories about language were challenged by an Amazonian tribe.

  • The mysterious vanishing of Ambrose Bierce.
  • Red Pill of the Day: Yes, there are actually people selling 'vintage milk' (read 'spoiled') online. Hey, if it worked with 'subprime mortgages' (read '$#itty') amiright? It's all in the labeling, baybeh!!

Nothing much to tell. Got fired (again) from a job which turned unbearable.

The plus: More time to think and blog.

The down: Inexorably approaching bankrupcy.

My 85-year old dad refuses to throw me another retirement party. Maybe that's because my main preoccupation these days is taking care of him!

been there, done that.
Doing it again right now.

So what we should do is go into business for ourselves. Multi-cultural wise,
we would have 3 governments that can subsidize our efforts. At least, parhaps
we can get the EU into is as well.

What do you say? I do have some ideas what could be useful, nay, even profitable, and for the greater good of society!

Greg knows who I am, lets talk.

What I have in mind is mainly a building management system, starting with power usage. Electricity and such. With batteries, and solar and wind ant stuff. And water, little hydro energy things.

Let Greg know, and we can get together on this, I believe Greg controls the identidy of people here. I can explain more of the technical stuff.

A small number of other people are welcome to be interested as well of course.
We just don't need a mass movement. And no, I don't have funding :)

But I do have firm ideas of how to do all this, not just dreaming.

I thought I had replied to this message yesternight. Oh well...

You can reach me through the 'Contact' option here at the site, though to be honest I don't know what I could contribute for in that kind of business model. My main expertise is interior design mostly --though I do know how to read an architectural plan ;)

Site database was corrupted yesterday, we had to reinstall from a back-up that was a few hours old. Anything posted in those few hours got lost, sorry.

Kind regards,

The OA is superior to Stranger Things, which coasted on clever nostalgia. Either way, be glad neither was recognized because rabid fandom can be a bad thing.

Welcome back to the mortal coil RPJ :P

Trump: Start learning Russian and Korean.

Horse deer: Looks similar to a large elk. Glad to see another legend proven true.

Milk: I imagine the FDA could slap Amazon with a lot of fines for this.

Bigfoot is a ghost: *bangs head on table repeatedly*

...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................
