At first glance it is a great idea, but how many steps removed is a credit-card-cell-phone only society from an imbedded-microchip-tracking-device society. Money is already a prime means of population control. How much more so if we go cashless and beyond. Anyhow, time to ratchet down the crazy a few notches and go start my day, pursued by a bear, gods willing.

Vikings spread the humble house mouse during conquests.

And now the House of the Mouse has too spread all over the globe. But it's anything but humble ;)

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

"After hearing his brother had died at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Kennedy phoned CIA headquarters, just down the road in Langley, where he often began his day, stopping there to work on Cuba-related business. Bobby's phone call to Langley on the afternoon of Nov. 22 was a stunning outburst. Getting a ranking official on the phone -- whose identity is still unknown -- Kennedy confronted him in a voice vibrating with fury and pain. "Did your outfit have anything to do with this horror?" Kennedy erupted."

"Kennedy had another revealing phone conversation on the afternoon of Nov. 22. Speaking with Enrique "Harry" Ruiz-Williams, a Bay of Pigs veteran who was his most trusted ally among exiled political leaders, Bobby shocked his friend by telling him point-blank, "One of your guys did it." "

The way the weird sounds story is being fed in dribs and dabbles to hide the world wide continuity of it suggests that the mainstream has been counseled to leave this alone or to lighten the load with humor.
