Winning the War on the Taliban with Beyonce!

Just saw Beyonce on Half Time Show of Super Bowl. I know this sounds silly but I got to say it anyway :-)

I really think we could win wars by using drones to drop free iPads/iphones/androids/kindles (ok add solar powered batteries, still less expensive than a typical bomb) loaded with Beyonce singing and gyrating on the Taliban!  Sexuality, or should I say being a normal sexual human tends corrode from within all these God obsessed fanatics! Maybe a couple of Justin Bieber videos for the ladies too!

mediumaevum:

THE SKIAPODES (or Sciapods) were a tribe of one-legged Ethiopian or Indian men who had a single giant foot which they raised in the air to shade themselves against the hot southern sun.
The Skiapodes were also popular in Medieval bestiaries and map illustrations of the Terra Incognita.


Art History is cool!

Win/Win Utopian gun control idea for Left and Right

Just throwing this out there:

1) For the left: Return all troops and close down all foreign bases.  End all foreign wars and let the world take care or not take care of itself without American blood.

2) For the right: Use all these US Military Troops to protect our schools with their big shiny expensive full powered automatic guns.

3) For the middle: Kids protected plus our troops spend money locally on bars, strip joints, entertainment, families with local economies benefitting.

4) Don’t ask me what we will do when a depressed Marine opens up with his automatic on some school auditorium.  We utopians provide you cool ideas, you guys and gals work out the details of implementing ideas in your gun filled world…

5) While letting the world take of itself, we should allow Iran to have Nuclear Weapons.  Remember NRA logic, if everyone has guns nukes, then everyone is deterred from using guns nukes.

Scientist asks, "Is Earth Fucked?"

climateadaptation:

Short answer: Yes, so long as we continue extracting and polluting the earth’s resources.

factoidlabs:

brad werner aguBrad Werner, a complex-systems analyst at UC San Diego, spoke Wednesday in San Francisco at the American Geophysical Union conference, io9 reports. The talk’s title: “Is Earth F**ked? Dynamical Futility of Sustainability via Direct Action Activism:”

“What happens is not too surprising: the economy very fast chews up the environmental resources, depletes those reservoirs, resulting in a significant amount of environmental damage,” Werner said during his talk. He is still finishing up the model, so no details on the inputs and the final simulations are available. Still, I asked him afterward to clarify if his model had answered his baseline question. Is Earth fucked? “More or less,” he said.
The answer, he says, is activism.
Werner’s presentation (search for it here) is being covered by a lot of sci-news sites. But, the best coverage I’ve read is by science blogger Michael Ricciardi of Planet Save

“This is a Catholic country,” was what Irish doctors told Savita Halappanavar after she learned she was miscarrying her pregnancy and asked for an abortion to avoid further complications. She spent three days in agonising pain, eventually shaking, vomiting and passing out. She again asked for an abortion and was refused, because the foetus still had a heartbeat.
Then she died.
She died of septicaemia and E Coli. She died after three and a half days of excruciating pain. She died after repeatedly begging for an end to the pregnancy that was poisoning her. Her death would have been avoided if she had been given an abortion when she asked for it – when it was clear she was miscarrying, and that non-intervention would put her at risk. But the foetus, which had no chance of survival, still had a heartbeat. Its right to life quite literally trumped hers.

How Republicans will win the White House in 2016!

Dear Right Wing Republicans: Please don’t feel bad. Remember, for 2016, double down on your strategy of treating women like whores that should be raped & self deporting Latinos. This strategy will surely win next time around, especially with Rick Santorum… (snicker)

Santiago de Compostela Inspirational Story: Today, feeling better after taking a 2 day break in Bilbao (Guggenheim) and Burgos, I walked the longest distance yet— 27 km— while, a fellow pilgrim I befriended on the camino, Pedro walked 31 km. Pedro is carrying a backpack twice as heavy as mine and he’s 71 years old!

Santa Agueda 16th Century painting from Pamplona museum of art. Yes, those are her cut off breasts she holds while she smiles in her holy sainthood to come. Didn’t show part of painting showing her smiling as breast are being cut off— description says renaissance but I think some realism is lost with the whole smile thing.
