1. Yep:

2. Haiku has:

JPL weak for Pi


And if Trump doesn’t win?

3. Nope – this man and/or the govt abetting him must be stopped at the ballot box:

4. We welcome our new robotic overlords:

5. Darren on Tim M on the 39bn:

6. Same bollox over and over:

7. Again, I’d suggest that if you pooh-pooh the idea of mind control, then that is to ignore GH Estabrooks, Svali and Colin Ross entirely, not to mention the MK Ultra convictions in ’73. Stuart S has thoughts on the matter:

A trained psychologist– who no longer practices– Slater has also had considerable experience as a patient taking psychiatric medication. If we want to be charitable we can say that she has had a mixed experience. She recounts it in her book Blue Dreams: The Science and Story of the Drugs That Changed Our Minds.

But, Slater is also a talented writer and researcher, and she serves as an excellent guide through the labyrinthine world of psychiatric medication. She understands full well that these medications have consistently been oversold. And she sees that the negative side effects must be evaluated in relation to the positive results. It’s not a simple picture at all.

    #1. As there is no democratic ‘election’ to speak of, the new leadership could be resolved by gladiatorial combat, infront of a TV audience. We might not be able to contribute to the victory of this candidate or that, but we could at least cheer.

    #2 It appears that Arstechnica isn’t quite a fake news outlet, it just doesn’t give all the details. Detail like the fact that coal fired power plants have been required to have particulate scrubbers in the smokestack for the last 20 odd years. They provide baseload power 24/7/360 with at least 75% efficiency (something renewables can’t do at around 25% efficiency). The method the EPA uses to count deaths does not follow agreed scientific practices and should be revised, the methodology is wrong and doesn’t fit in with real world conditions.

    The comments to that article shows just how brainwashed the followers of the UN Church of Climatology are and how far they have gone to the far left.

    But the voters don’t have any real power anyway. The EU is just a bit more honest – it doesn’t pretend to be democratic.

    You turn up dutifully at the polling station every five years to vote for the candidates of your choice. Except they’re not the candidates of your choice. They’re the candidates selected for you by the parties. You vote for what appear to be the least offensive candidates. And they then proceed to ignore your wishes and do whatever they want.

    In some ways undemocratic systems are better because people have fewer illusions.
