Grab some popcorn and pull up a grassy knoll - the new season of 'America' is about to get exciting....

Quote of the Day:

Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.

Alan Moore

Meggadeath's Symphony of Destruction seems to be our current state of affairs. If it could only have been Queensryche Take Hold of the Flame instead.

Animal Psi: "Dogs do not have particularly good hearing, and even if they could distinguish the sound of a particular vehicle approaching from a distance, it would not explain their awareness of a particular individual returning by public transport."

I beg to differ. If I can learn to hear my mom's car when it was at the end of the street when she was coming home after work, then a dog can. What the fuck? A wolf can hear 5 miles away in a densely packed area. While a dog may not be as great surely it can here better than me, a human. I think dogs can sense when we are close by our aura. Cats can too, the only difference is they think "oh good, the servant is back."

Fatima: Except it is now believed the Church cohearsed the kids to say that. Kids are easy to manipulate especially when they live in a very religious community.

Rubber duck: I see.....spaghetti.

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

Well, Trump and TDG have one thing in common. They both make everybody very uncomfortable.

I watched the Dark Side of the Sun. It was surprisingly dark. If I understood correctly, a Carrington Event would fry all electronics whether it was plugged in or not (by inducing enormous currents). I'd like to hear some further analysis on that.

It's been postulated that the southern hemisphere would be far less impacted than the northern. However, I haven't heard whether these storms would be equally devastating to eastern and western hemispheres (due to the radiation profile over the entire event time)?
