Had to address issues that were on my chest so I’ve added this second blog for today on top of the VacationBlogging Installment #3 below.

~~~~~~~~~~~~****~~~~~~~~~~~~

First off is my Junk Science pet peeve, Globular Worming.  Never fear, oh fearful huddled ignorant masses!  Those who are far far more intelligent than me and thee are on top of things!

A dash of lime — a new twist that may cut CO2 levels back to pre-industrial levels

To put it succinctly, the process involves adding large amounts of carbon-negative (ultimately) lime to the oceans to create an alkaline environment, which will be MUCH better at soaking up CO2.  Seems that adding Coronas does bad things because of the carbonation.  Evil CO2!

Scientists say they have found a workable way of reducing CO2 levels in the atmosphere by adding lime to seawater. And they think it has the potential to dramatically reverse CO2 accumulation in the atmosphere, reports Cath O’Driscoll in SCI’s Chemistry & Industry magazine published today.  (physorg.com)

This process has the potential to reverse the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere. It would be possible to reduce CO2 to pre-industrial levels – Tim Kruger, a management consultant at London firm Corven (physorg.com)

Oh, bra-vo.  So we’ll “fix” a “problem” that may not be a problem by a process that we barely understand in the context of entire ecosystems and climate systems?

Are people born this stupid or do they have to practice and/or be educated to these levels?

Note:  YES, I know the lime they are referring to does not grow on trees and add nice flavor to gin and tonics.  Don’t bother me about that, ok?

Did anyone really think that Obama had the cojones to expose himself to uncanned events?  This is old news, but geez, really.  He couldn’t go fifteen rounds unscripted and everyone knows it.  Get used to hearing his representatives saying “We’re not saying that” a lot.

From Reuters, where science means never having to back it up…

New estimates show that least 56,000 people become infected with the AIDS virus every year in the United States — 40 percent more than previous calculations

quote courtesty of Reuters:  http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN0241418020080802?feedType=RSS&feedName=domesticNews&rpc=22&sp=true

“NEW ESTIMATES”.  Based on… what, exactly?  We have a bit of “news” based on “estimates” being compared to “previous calculations”  (presumably based on earlier ‘estimates’).  Wow, I’m all ears.

The CDC stressed that actual infection rates have not risen but said better methods of measuring newly diagnosed infections and extrapolating these to the general population led to the higher estimates.  (emphasis mine)

Ah, so this is a news article about nothing, then. Bravo.  Again, reporting estimates as if they were facts.

More news. This time from Fox.

Obesity Treatments That Don’t Require Invasive Surgery

… A handful of companies are aiming to fix that with treatments that aren’t invasive and don’t require an overhaul of one’s life. …  [entire article here]

Focus on that for a second.  Treatments that are (1) uninvasive, and (2) require absolutely no effort on the part of the individual.

My sister, whom I am incredibly proud of, lost a huge amount of weight on her own w/o any of that stuff.  Know what she says?  She says “It comes down the fact that the only one that controls what I put in my mouth is me.”   How is THAT for a person to be proud of?

But, why do that when you can be a Transpecies Assignment candidate, become a mouse (because you’ve always felt like you were one inside) and get this quick-fix?

I’m going to add more later tonight but the kids need to go to bed now before I stroke out…

Let’s examine Specimen #1, shall we, Constant Reader?

Group wants Wi-Fi banned from public buildings

A group in Santa Fe says the city is discriminating against them because they say that they’re allergic to the wireless Internet signal. And now they want Wi-Fi banned from public buildings.

Arthur Firstenberg says he is highly sensitive to certain types of electric fields, including wireless Internet and cell phones.

“I get chest pain and it doesn’t go away right away,” he said.

Firstenberg and dozens of other electro-sensitive people in Santa Fe claim… (more)

The only worse knuckle-dragging mouth-breather is one who listens to these ID10Ts.

Ok, Specimen #2… smart people who write highly intellectual papers about the stupidest things.

Temporal and Spatial Aspects of Microwave Excitation of Compact Disks

No, really, I kid you not. These guys wrote about the manner and mechanisms of disruptions to the metallic layers in compact discs that were microwaved. Oooh, perhaps I ought to write about the spatial frequency of burn patterns on observers’ faces immediately following the explosion of an egg that has been microwaved 10 minutes? Yes, we did nuke an egg for ten minutes. You wouldn’t believe how hot they get, how far scrambled egg fragments can fly, and just how much surface area can be peppered with detonated egg. Perhaps we were the ID10Ts…?

Specimen(s) #3 – But, there’s other instances which make me feel good about myself again.

Would YOU pose for a picture like this?

Again, we have to be open minded and accept that the level of stupidity, while not infinite, is pretty damned big… on to Specimen #4.

America, Israel, India Caused Tsunami

Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) – The earthquake that caused tidal waves to slam into the coast of Southeast Asia, killing at least 145,000 people, could have been the result of joint American, Israeli and Indian underwater weapons testing, an Egyptian weekly and other Arab media charged.

The earthquake struck along a known fault line deep beneath the surface of the Indian Ocean on December 26, generating 30-foot swells of water that engulfed resort areas and entire villages along the coasts of Thailand, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and India.

But in the Middle East, where some prominent figures still accuse the Israeli secret service of perpetrating the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the U.S., conspiracy theories about the tsunami disaster are taking root.

Specimen #5 – I saved the best for last. Brought to you by the same people that control our brains with microwaves and lace KFC chicken to make black men impotent. (Those were two more nutty conspiracy theory examples)

AIDS is man-made – Interview with Dr. Boyd Graves

(FinalCall.com) – After beginning his research on the AIDS pandemic in 1992, Dr. Boyd Graves discovered in February 1999 the greatest evidence, to date, of records and reports of the experiments that led to the development of what the world now knows as the AIDS virus. That document is the “1971 Flow Chart of the Special Virus Program of the United States.” Dr. Graves submitted this flowchart as evidence to the Sixth Circuit Federal Court in a case which named the President of the United States as a defendant to answer a petition acknowledging the authenticity of the Flow Chart. On January 12, 2001, the case was dismissed as “frivolous,” and then referred to the District’s Appellate Court, which ruled in favor of the lower court. Eventually, it went to the Supreme Court, which refused to hear it without giving comment as to why. Dr. Graves spoke with Final Call contributor Sultan Muhammad to explain the significance and consequences of his research.

Conspiracy theories? Coverups? Nah. They don’t exist. Neither does the shadow organization “The Lemurati”. It’s all in your head, go back to work.
