Not So Fast

The secrets of the London Cage

The London Cage was used partly as a torture centre, inside which large numbers of German officers and soldiers were subjected to systematic ill-treatment. In total 3,573 men passed through the Cage, and more than 1,000 were persuaded to give statements about war crimes. The brutality did not end with the war, moreover: a number of German civilians joined the servicemen who were interrogated there up to 1948.

Note To Kudlow

Magna Carta is a Norman, not an Anglo document.

ie- The Anglo Saxons were conquered by the Norman French which is why I can call you a douche bag in three languages and still be using English.

Don’t Forget

Wash your hands with anti bacterial soap because that too has no effect on fucking virii.

Breaking News!

Phineas Freek advises that smoking weed on the street should be safer as people avoid those who are coughing and appear to be under pulmonary distress.

Update: Police authorities announced they have no fear.

Government Issues Travel Guidlines

The government recommends hiring undocumented workers to dig tunnels…

So

How many super bugs will be created by all the stupid fuckers taking antibiotics as a precautionary measure against a fucking virus?

That is, as opposed to the ones being created by feeding antibiotics to livestock.

Looking For Heaven When The World’s Going To Hell

Should we not rejoice in death, is it not so written? And failing in faith has the philosopher not learned to drink life to the lees, to celebrate that he once was too?

I’m So Afraid Of Swine Flu

I’m going Galt.

“Humanity Under Threat!” good lord.

There’s airplanes over New York and I ain’t too surprised

41,059 people died in traffic last year, better avoid the roads too.

And of course being born is still a capital crime, with death rates remaining at one per person for the foreseeable future, although one may die many times if one pays attention to the governments and tv.

THAT’S IT! NO MORE PORKY THE PIG FOR YOU!

Must resist evolution…

Biden: Would Avoid Planes, Trains, and Subways

Like I would avoid insurance bagmen and VPs named Biden?

In A Perfect World

There would be no surprises, no shocks, all would work as a clock, in perfect little circles of perfect circular thoughts. Logic would be inescapable.

With Interactive Television

I may have to get false teeth and start Vlogging.

That’s better.

Notes For Changes

We are a river too.

The More You Know

Worth the look.

According to her analyses, the Ohio pig isolates are the most closely related to the new Texas and California human isolates.

If true it may help explain why Americans are not as ill as Mexicans. More here,

The deadly H1N1 influenza virus that’s fueling fears of a global pandemic is a hybrid of two common pig flu strains, scientists who have studied the disease told Wired.com Tuesday. Earlier reports called it a combination of pig, human and avian influenza strains.

via FDL I was busy this PM so that’s the best I’ve got so far.

Update: This story highlights in a big way the problem the traditional media have, since they have to really lock down the facts before they go public. I understand that, and most people that read this blog do too, but I doubt that the majority of news consumers do. But there is a sense of urgency to traditional media reporting that comes through in the reporting of stories like this that may have more to do with deadlines and first out of the box considerations than the story being reported requires or deserves. In the case of television that urgency is visually and audibly apparent without the viewer being aware of what the urgency is about, the assumption being it applies to the story, and not to the competitive nature of the business.

It also highlights the amount of reporting time spent on the death of a child from disease, as opposed to those killed and maimed by politics on a continuing basis. I cannot fathom the distinction of innocence in the two groups, so pray tell what that might be?

Is it tomorrow yet?
