  1. it isn't too late to apply pressure either, you can still phone or write lawmakers if that's your thing.


    an interesting development recently was the RBA announcing that they were investigating some of the more radical monetary/fiscal measures used in other advanced economies.  what this could mean, um, NIRP or QE or both.  it could also mean further attacks on cash.  cash impedes NIRPs effectiveness.


    we have the trade war going on, which i've begun to realise truly is necessary to curb china's unfair behaviour and sinister aspirations (world hegemony by 2049), and australia seems to be on board....  china is losing too, and an election upset in usa probably won't end the trade war anymore.  it's a lot of stress though in such shaky times.


    it may have seemed like i was crying wolf in the past, but nay.  australia is routinely identified as one of the most fragile and indebted countries globally.  we continue to benefit from chinese capital outflow (well in terms of GDP, i don't know if perennial renters can say the same, or anyone that blew too much on a crumbling sydney unit or any dwelling of shrinking value), and china is really a focus of mine at the moment.  it's a case of who will collapse first, but it will be a domino effect regardless.


    we already have bail-in legislation (and it's worth connecting the dots here; being shoe-horned into the banking system while grabbling your savings is their government-approved emergency lifeline).  what you need to understand in layman's terms is that the IMF, through bodies such as APRA, has governments put measures in place so that your wealth can be used to prop up a doomed system, whether it's saving the banks through a direct grabble-attack (extreme but happened in cyprus already) or via the usual shennanigans inflating away debt and fueling deficits and frankly turning what is natural and sensible onto its head to the detriment of purchasing power and confidence.  banning cash transactions is a part of this.  the aussie cash rate will likely hit zero in a year or whatever.  what comes AFTER zero will be bizarro world, which isn't new across the seas but australia hasn't gone bizarro yet. 


    edit:  found this political cartoon, can't upload it (26mb) has to be downloaded.  it's high res intended for postering.




    and i see @Sallubrious was already posting videos from walk the world.  good stuff!!!!!



  2. ahh no worries, i thought you had them switched since andy wasn't on the list.  @PD. posted about a year ago.


    i didn't know ed but i do have fond memories of a certain online fiasco following a camping trip many moons past.

  3. ^ stoopid


    there has been significant pushback to the cash transaction ban despite the sleazy way in which it was tabled. 


    this short and sober video raises all the main points and is a good primer.


    hey @Sallubrious return of the angry old men B)

  4. i think piracetam was an early nootropic of its type and has been displaced (maybe not entirely) by stronger versions like oxiracetam pramiracetam aniracetam


    various nootropics have been variously available from various aussie vendors but this no longer seems to be the case for any of the *racetam


    order from USA


    but heed waterboys warning

  5. skeletons in the closet was the one i saw as well.


    it's not surprising what you say.  comparative mythology seems fruitful anywhere on the globe. 


    such a neat time to be riding this wave of discovery.  as robert foerster said, it doesn't matter anymore that alternative archeologists can't publish their papers or get grants.  using the internet to self-promote they can get crowd funding, run tours, do their own field work and make their findings public, getting hundreds of thousands of views on facebook on youtube.

  6. ahhh yes, the visitor accelerated unexpectedly leading to speculation that it is a lightsail or a vessel with a lightsail or such (we dont actually know that it's a cigar shaped rock) or that it received a push from outgassing (unlikely)


    i remember bagashov commenting on reasons for cylindrical shape, ways in which it challenges electric universe model (no cometary characteristics) and ways in which it corroborates electric universe model.


    arthur c clarkes well known fiction 'rendezvous with rama' features a cylindrical rock flying by the solar system and slingshotting around the sun, which is a fascinating coincidence.  in the story a manned space mission is diverted to investigate (and finds the hollowed rock contains/is an enormous spaceship)

  7. Indeed it should be viewed with a grain of salt.


    Now, congress has ended one of the russia probes.  Sessions has appointed somebody to look into the alleged fisa abuse.  The fbi is investigating Australia's payments to the clintons.  i continue to feel optimistic.

  8. I shall hate whatever i goddamn want to sagi.  I wasnt even talking about the jews, i was talking about the evil megarich; there is a strong correlation i know. You brought them up just now when you said they'll inherit the earth on account of siphoning up all the wealth.  


    If you're gonna try to go off at me please state your disagreement clearly, and go beyond just stating that im right wing.

  9. Cheddar man?  i dont know what nazis have to say about it but i can tell you what a white person (who is :o proud of his white ancestors) thinks


    But first, there is an obvious large-scale attempt underway to "blackwash" european history and this story is probably part of it.  


    Cheddar man is the oldest complete skeleton, other remains are dated many thousands of years older.


    Now its almost as though journalists dont publish scientific findings properly.  i can at least find a paywalled site previewing the following "that’s what dozens of news stories published this month – including our own – stated as fact. But one of the geneticists who performed the research says the conclusion is less certain, and according to others we are not even close to knowing the skin colour of any ancient human"


    my this devolved quickly ;)  no hard feelings.

  10. Here.   I wouldn't normally post a pragerU vid.  I dont trust them even though superficially they are often on the same page as me.  Thought it might aid the discussion above though.




    I didn't let it embed before i posted, but it is five minutes on fascism, right or left?

  11. Personally agree with your entire post, and just because i am a capitalist doesnt mean i think anybody needs to be worth 50 billion dollars.  that kind of money corrupts your humanity, and some people will say "oh but bill gates is such a philanthropist" so was rockefeller.  They can jam their philanthropy as it has a filthy rotten agenda EVERY FUCKING TIME.  I hate these people crop, from the bottom of my soul they are the enemy and need to be destroyed before they destroy us.

  12. Yeah i dont trust the ipcc or their modified data.  Thats a personal assessment, no need for anyone to chuck a fit.


    Just posting to ask whether the loss of atmosphere is tied to human activity at all?  Titan and mars are two rocks losing some serious gas.  Earth has a vast atmosphere and comparatively tiny losses.  a polar flip (decades long process) could occur in the next century, and this is preceded by accelerating loss of strength of earths magnetic field (which is happening).  Such an event is going to leave us relatively unprotected from external radiation, it wont be particularly nice and will almost certainly mean an increased rate of atmospheric losses.  Im not aware of any connection that has been drawn between human activity and earths magnetic field, or earths atmospheric losses.

  13. There were some islands that were expected to go under were recently photographed again and found to have grown.  Dunno.  Seabeds can change elevation.


    Sea level, i dunno.  Its not a direct measure of global warming.  Volcanos have been discovered under the ice that werent thought to exist in the past.


    Complex stuff.  Black and white doesnt help.
