Having A Form Of Godly Devotion

But proving false to its’ power,

16:49 “‘See here – this was the iniquity 4 of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters had majesty, abundance of food, and enjoyed carefree ease, but they did not help 5 the poor and needy. 16:50 They were haughty and practiced abominable deeds before me. Therefore when I saw it I removed them.

Holy Mackerel

Facebook’em Dano Everywhere you go…

A researcher from a Dutch university is warning that Facebook’s ‘Like This’ button is watching your every move.

Like Counter IntelPro?

I would be shocked. With 6% of the documents being labelled “Secret”?

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: It’s not a question of worry. It’s, rather, a question of whether WikiLeaks are being manipulated by interested parties that want to either complicate our relationship with other governments or want to undermine some governments, because some of these items that are being emphasized and have surfaced are very pointed.

And your role sir?

If I were a journalist I would get confirmation before I wrote something up as fact, and if I were a national security expert I would only believe half of what I read in the newspapers.

Since I’m a blogger, I just pass it on unfiltered to you.

Missing An "F" And The "L"

OFA edition. Why anyone would want to freeze pay increases based on the inflation rate at this point in time is beyond me, but to ask people to write letters to the editors in support of a policy that belies your ignorance of current events makes me think I should ask you to also send me chocolates covered with gold flakes.

“That’s some mighty rich offal there Mr. Smirkzz.”

Nuke’m Dano

Closer than Iran

The Russian nuke movement isn’t expressly forbidden by prior nuclear treaties; and the Journal notes that it “appeared to coincide” with the arrival of NATO missile defense systems near Russia’s European borders. At the NATO summit in Lisbon this month, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev endorsed building a joint NATO-Russia missile defense system over the next ten years — a big NATO priority — but warned that if “universal” missile defense couldn’t be fielded, a “new round of arms race will start.” So it’s tense, but it’s not necessarily time to dig out that old Sting song out of the record crates.

The WikiLeak You Won’t See On Faux

El-Masri

From the small mountain of diplomatic cables that WikiLeaks is now slowly putting up at their website, one significant historical document has so far gotten only scant mention. It’s dated February 6, 2007 and directed to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. It reflects a meeting between John M. Koenig, the senior career diplomat at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, and Rolf Nikel, the deputy national security advisor for Germany. The subject was the criminal investigation into the kidnapping and torture of Khaled El-Masri, a German greengrocer from the town of Neu-Ulm, seized in a case of mistaken identity.

Consumer Confidence Report

As a consumer of blogs, I’m pretty confident this one sucks.

The Banker In The Bathtub

The Pentangeli effect.

According to this interview with Assange in Forbes magazine, Wikileaks will soon be releasing a trove of documents relating to a major US bank:

My Fake War On Christmas

I have banned blue and green from this blog. This also comports with the defaults of the template, but that will be our dirty little secret.

Hmmm Oxytocin And Dear Old Mom

So, when did you start…

They found that men who were less anxious and more securely attached remembered their mothers as more caring and remembered being closer to their mothers in childhood when they received oxytocin, compared to when they received placebo. However, men who were more anxiously attached remembered their mothers as less caring and remembered being less close to their mothers in childhood when they received oxytocin, compared to when they received placebo. These results were not due to more general effects of oxytocin on mood or well-being.
