I'm watching the episode where Dr. Bashir is tricked into doing undercover work for Sector 31… They made a few comments that I thought were very relevant:

  • Can you commit unethical acts to protect your national interests, even if it means sending young men to die to protect the ethical codes you are breaking?
  • In regards to the above, they used the well known quote from Cicero — “inter arma silent leges” (in time of war, the law is silent).
  • They regularly address the issue of terrorist action as a legitimate form of war.
  • Does anyone else think that Romulan ale is the marijuana of Star Fleet?

…and for those that speak a little Latin, remember another quote from Cicero:


This is all over the news internationally, but I figured it couldn't hurt to mention again since I'm sure that today US news will be flooded with the official lies… There's been a lot of comparison with 9/11's “day of infamy” with Pearl Harbor in 1941. Problem is, thanks to recently unclassified US military documents, the public story of Pearl Harbor is pretty much a fabrication. Yes, of course the attack happened, but it was provoked and it was not a surprise attack. For those inclined to learn history and not propaganda, here are some starter links:

If you'd like more links after that brief overview, here are some others:

Ok, maybe all that's a bit too depressing, so let me tell you about some things that are a bit more fun. Telling you about Russian criminals selling nukes isn't going to do it for you? I could tell you about Panda bear porno, or maybe about chucking people (not pumpkins) with medieval seige equipment, or even about the end of skunky beers… But if you follow any of the fun links, learn how to flip people off anywhere in the world! (Please make sure to read the section on Canada before visiting). Honestly, that site is really neat — it's worth checking out.

PS. Who's gonna help do a Chinese translation?

Doctored photos

When BMEshop puts an item up for sale, we either draw a picture (like we do for shirts), or take photos of the actual items (like we do for jewelry). Strangely enough, not all companies do this. I was browsing through alphasylum's page (because there were just some complaints filed about their customer service on RAB), and clicked on their plugs.

I saw a picture of some sparkle plugs that didn't look quite right… almost like an optical illusion. I don't have a good explanation as to why — maybe it's crooked jewelry, maybe they doctored the photo, or maybe it's just in my head — but here's what I found:

Weird spam?

As far as I can tell this is spam… I have no idea what it means:

message: If you are a time traveler or alien disguised as human and or have the technology to travel physically through time I need your help!

My life has been severely tampered with and cursed!!
I have suffered tremendously and am now dying!

I need to be able to:

Travel back in time.

Rewind my life including my age.

Be able to remember what I know now so that I can prevent my life from being tampered with again after I go back.

I am in very great danger and need this immediately!

I am aware that there are many types of time travel and that humans do not do well through certain types.

I need as close to temporal reversion as possible, as safely as possible. To be able to rewind the hands of time in such a way that the universe of now will cease to exist.
I know that there are some very powerful people out there with alien or government equipment capable of doing just that.

If you can help me I will pay for your teleport or trip down here, Along with hotel stay, food and all expenses. I will pay top dollar for the equipment. Proof must be provided.

Only if you have this technology and can help me please send me a (SEPARATE) email to:
