They both got blowjobs from chicks not their wives while they were famous.
And their compliant whore/wives went on to ride their coattails.
And JFK. And his daughter had an adulterous affair, too.
Ain't power fun?
Why has no one commented that "african americans" (which BO is not) have been bred for compliance? I mean, you have something like 6 generations and quite a bit of highly measurable personality difference.
BO is smart, but he is also a commie, and has never worked for real. Will be an interesting decade.
But hey. Irvine had that egyptian couple that kept a slave in their garage. And an arabic guy who shot up the LAX El-Al booth soon after 911.
This year, its only February, two murders so far.
out who is on jury duty. Then you can case and rob their house.

As the Obama administration pushes through Congress its $800 billion deficit-spending economic stimulus plan, the American public is largely unaware that the true deficit of the federal government already is measured in trillions of dollars, and in fact its $65.5 trillion in total obligations exceeds the gross domestic product of the world.
The total U.S. obligations, including Social Security and Medicare benefits to be paid in the future, effectively have placed the U.S. government in bankruptcy, even before new continuing social welfare obligation embedded in the massive spending plan are taken into account.
The real 2008 federal budget deficit was $5.1 trillion, not the $455 billion previously reported by the Congressional Budget Office, according to the "2008 Financial Report of the United States Government" as released by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
The difference between the $455 billion "official" budget deficit numbers and the $5.1 trillion budget deficit cited by "2008 Financial Report of the United States Government" is that the official budget deficit is calculated on a cash basis, where all tax receipts, including Social Security tax receipts, are used to pay government liabilities as they occur.

Drones based in Pakistan
The Predator planes that launch missile strikes against militants are based in Pakistan, the senator says. That suggests a much deeper relationship with the U.S. than Islamabad would like to admit.
By Greg Miller
A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an air base inside that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counter-terrorism collaboration with the United States.
The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, marked the first time a U.S. official had publicly commented on where the Predator aircraft patrolling Pakistan take off and land.
At a hearing, Feinstein expressed surprise at Pakistani opposition to the ongoing campaign of Predator-launched CIA missile strikes against Islamic extremist targets along Pakistan’s northwestern border.
“As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base,” she said.
The basing of the pilotless aircraft in Pakistan suggests a much deeper relationship with the United States on counter-terrorism matters than has been publicly acknowledged. Such an arrangement would be at odds with protests lodged by officials in Islamabad and could inflame anti-American sentiment in the country.
The CIA declined to comment, but former U.S. intelligence officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information, confirmed that Feinstein’s account was accurate.
Philip J. LaVelle, a spokesman for Feinstein, said her comment was based solely on previous news reports that Predators were operated from bases near Islamabad.
Probably not news reports, but classified intelligence she was privvy to
“We strongly object to Sen. Feinstein’s remarks being characterized as anything other than a reference” to an article that appeared last March in the Washington Post, LaVelle said. Feinstein did not refer to newspaper accounts during the hearing.
LaVelle is some douche mouthpiece for the senator, what do you expect him to say?
Many counter-terrorism experts have assumed that the aircraft take off from U.S. military installations in Afghanistan and are remotely piloted from locations in the United States.
By pimply faced cowards in air-conditioned rooms
Experts said the disclosure could create political problems for the government in Islamabad, which is considered relatively weak.
The attacks are extremely unpopular in Pakistan, in part because of the high number of civilian casualties inflicted in dozens of strikes.
Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert at Georgetown University, said Feinstein’s comments put Pakistan’s government on the spot.
“If accurate, what this says is that Pakistani involvement, or at least acquiescence, has been much more extensive than has previously been known,” he said. “It puts the Pakistani government in a far more difficult position [in terms of] its credibility with its own people. Unfortunately it also has the potential to threaten Pakistani-American relations.”
As chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Feinstein is privy to classified details of U.S. counter-terrorism efforts. The CIA does not publicly acknowledge a campaign against Pakistan-based extremists using remotely piloted planes, making Feinstein’s comment all the more unusual.
Feinstein’s disclosure came during testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee by U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair on the nation’s security threats. Blair did not respond directly to Feinstein’s remark, except to say that Pakistan was “sorting out” its cooperation with the United States.
Pakistani officials have long denied that they have even granted the U.S. permission to fly the Predator planes over Pakistani territory, let alone to operate the aircraft from within the country.
We don't need you're stinkin' permission, we pwn you
The civilian leadership that took over from an unpopular former general, Pervez Musharraf, last year, has gone to significant lengths to distance itself from the Predator strikes.
Ie, they are lying to their own people, and working for the US government
The Pakistani government regularly lodges diplomatic protests [yawn] against the strikes as a violation of its sovereignty [what sovereignty do these little brown people think they have?], and officials said the subject was raised with Richard C. Holbrooke, a newly appointed U.S. envoy to the region, who completed his first visit to the country on Thursday. [Surrounded by huge numbers of troops to keep him alive]
But one former CIA official familiar with the Predator operations said Pakistan’s government secretly approves of the flights because of the growing militant threat inside the country.
Feinstein prefaced her comment about the Predator basing Thursday by noting that Holbrooke “ran into considerable concern about the use of the Predator strikes in the FATA areas,” a reference to what Pakistan calls its Federally Administered Tribal Area along the border with Afghanistan.
Despite public anger, many Pakistanis believe the civilian leadership has continued Musharraf’s policy of giving the United States tacit permission to carry out the strikes.
Think they'll notice?
Its not getting much press response here, except in blogs, considering how important this is in destabilizing that lil ole corner of the world.
CIA planes flown from bases in Pak, says US lawmaker
Washington, Feb 13 (PTI) A senior US lawmaker has said that unmanned CIA drones operating in Pakistan are flown from an air base inside that country, a revelation likely to embarrass Islamabad.Such a revelation by Senator, Dianne Feinstein, is the first instance that a US official has publicly come out with a comment on where the Predator aircraft patrolling Pakistan take off and land, Chicago Times reported. Feinstein, who is the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, expressed surprise at Pakistani opposition to Predator-launched CIA missile strikes against Al Qaeda targets along Pak-Afghan border."As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base,"she was quoted as saying by the paper. The CIA declined to comment on the revelation. However, former US intelligence officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, claimed that the Senators'observation was correct.

"information that results in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for illegally launching the Conflicker malicious code on the Internet"
Ok, #1 there is no "internet"
#2 "Illegally launching" since when?
There are insecure OSes running on machines with IP connections. That is all.
I read "there are two main versions of Conflicker, "Flavor A" and "Flavor B," which appear to have propagated an additional 450,000 and 1.7 million copies of themselves respectively in the last four days alone". That is pretty good reproduction, a lot of bandwidth available.
In the late 1980s, the constituent republics of the Soviet Union started legal moves towards or even declaration of sovereignty over their territories, citing Article 72 of the USSR Constitution, which stated that any constituent republic was free to secede. On April 7, 1990 a law was passed, that a republic could secede, if more than two thirds of that republic's residents vote for it on a referendum. Many held their first free elections in the Soviet era for their own national legislatures in 1990. Many of these legislatures proceeded to produce legislation contradicting the Union laws in what was known as "The war of laws." In 1989, the Russian SFSR, which was then the largest constituent republic (with about half of the population) convened a newly elected Congress of People's Deputies. Boris Yeltsin was elected the chairman of the Congress. On June 12, 1990, the Congress declared Russia's sovereignty over its territory and proceeded to pass laws that attempted to supersede some of the USSR's laws. The period of legal uncertainty continued throughout 1991 as constituent republics slowly became de facto independent.
So, visualize secession. We don't need and don't want D.C., its bogus wars, bogus laws, bogus taxes, and scummy politicians.
Although according to this http://www.slate.com/id/2109317/ the Constitution doesn't provide for an exit, although it describes adding. The Constitution could be amended, it has certainly been thrashed back and forth in the past, with less important things (eg, prohibition).

Ok, you sell us kasmir, we don't bomb Islamabad. Good deal, if you know what's good for you.
You didn't think those military jets we sold you have remote kill buttons, did you?
What is the deal with the OC sheriff Sandra Hutchens and Israeli politician Tzipi Litvi ?
They both have the same frowny mouth, straight hair, and lust for power. Is this some kind of prenatal testosterone exposure symptom?
Sure, don't drink lots of soda, or get much of your calories
from simple sugar solutions.
But you're going to die. If you're lucky, it will be before your kids,
and not due to human violence. If you're lucky enough not to die of disease,
or childbirth, or famine,
historical favorites, you're living after the 20th century, and you
are going to die of plumbing failure or library failure. The former
is heart blockage, fibrillation, or stroke. The latter is cancer,
and if you're not at absolute zero (pretty boring) you will eventually
accumulate enough copying errors to fail that way. You can prove it.
Twain has a story about a 'one horse shay', maintained by a cheap
preacher, that falls apart in every
way on the same day, eventually. To me that seems optimal.
Rats never ever die of heart disease. They always die in 2-3 years.
Cancer, usually, but in nature, eaten or sick.
The fact is, there's a trade off between fertility / activity and
longetivity. (Eg, see caloric restriction studies)
And there's decreasing evolutionary pressure to
deter decay as you get older.
All things, ---from electronics to fruit flies--- follow a bathtub shaped
mortality curve. A lot die early on, then its flat, then mortality picks
up slowly at the far end.
You can be distressed about it or not. Your choice. Avoid pain and stay
busy to the end.
Entropy *will* win and at some point fighting it is desparate. You can
certainly play games with diet, behavior, etc, but being happy is
the most important thing. When it fails, keep means available to exit
cleanly. There is some dignity in persisting esp if you have the choice,
otherwise you are at the mercy of biology/nature/"god(tm)", which is often
cruel in unusual ways.
Heard on the radio today: "what a drag it is, getting old". But life is
much more exciting that the Stones describe, for now.
BTW, we don't buy fruit juice any more, just 0% milk. :-P
It balances the bacon.
PPS: I'm also sick of the 'follow the health news' culture, esp. since you
should never believe results until replicated a few times. Meanwhile,
I'm favoring the coffee / wine / olive oil etc is good for you studies

dank lab playing with radioactive chemicals? A horse drawn carriage.

>>LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California's octuplets mum, already jobless and receiving food stamps, has gone into hiding with her six older children because of death threats, her spokesman said on Wednesday.
Nadya Suleman, 33, has come under mounting public ridicule for expanding her already large family via fertility treatments that led to the January 26 birth of six boys and two girls at a Los Angeles-area hospital.
That criticism has mushroomed as it was reported that she was divorced, living with her parents, unemployed for several years, receiving disability checks for three of her children -- one of whom is autistic -- and collecting nearly $500 (347.75 pounds) a month in food stamps.<<
Ya think? Too bad Palin and her dysfunctional litter aren't also recognized this way.
"I don't think it's a positive signal, this is the message that I transmitted to the authorities of Pakistan during the week. I think that ... in the moments we are living, with the problems of proliferation, it's not a good signal," Solana told Reuters in an interview in Moscow.<<
And the US is bugged too.
Guess what? He's a national hero.
Nuclear weapons are Sam Colt's equalizer of the 21st century. Get over it.
At least they didn't fry him like Oppenheimer.
But really, I'd like to kick Harvey Levin. Or, force him to live in the amerika he supplies.
Then I went to MIT in Boston. Dress code FAIL.
Well, duh. They are all expendable, look up "collateral damage". We paid zillions of dollars to pwn them. Now they gripe?
Imagine how Aafia Siddiqui feels.

I had a crush on his sister Magda once, she was older, and smart.
I think that was my first untimely death.
I still have a crucible our mutual friend gave me. Thirty years later.
Their logo is a pair of hearts: one wrapped in barbed wire, the other stuck through with a sword, both on fire. Then consider that they took young women and made them behaviorally celibate. How does that compute? Very obvious. The stuck is the girl, the barbed is the boy, and shazam you've got a nun. Add some mythology and dysfunction, who knows, some priestly abuse, and you're in business.
Of course, they accumulated a lot of old nuns, and with the fines from pedophilia, the catholics had to sell the building in Albany, and ship the nuns off elsewhere. The school moved.
There was an quiet girl there, braces and ordinary, Dawn C, who disappeared along with her more attractive sister. (This is about age 14-17) Their family was a contributor to the school, PTA, etc. Turned out their father was abusing Dawn and she blew him away with a shotgun one day. I found out about it, though generally I don't think it was explained. She died 2 years later of cancer in jail, I found out later.

San Juan councilman asks residents to shoot crows
Big black birds have become too numerous and too aggressive, Tom Hribar says.
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – Councilman and well-documented enemy of crows Tom Hribar has a new plan to get rid of the "rats with wings," as he has called them.
His answer? Shoot 'em.
Songbirds have left the valley, he says. So have San Juan Capistrano's beloved swallows. The landfill on La Pata Avenue has brought more crows.
There's more food available for the scavenging crows and not enough predators to keep their numbers down, Hribar says.
"We don't have enough people shooting them," he said. "We all know what they've done to our community."
And like a pack of surly thugs who ran the police out of town, the crows are getting meaner.
"These crows are becoming extremely aggressive," Hribar said. "They are actually causing property damage. People are at a loss as to what they can do."
The councilman said state law permits hunters to shoot 24 crows per day before April.
Mayor Mark Nielsen said he has seen the big black birds "methodically ramming their heads on a neighbor's glass."
But he insists he would not shoot them.
"I would never discharge a weapon in city limits," Nielsen said.
Yep. You put up your nazi war-porn, we'll put up what we like.
BTW, Asher Milgrom and his wife Alice Pien live at
My family constructed a simple memorial for the US soldiers fallen in Iraq. To date we
have erected plaques ("Sentinels"), recognizing by name each fallen service man or woman. The memorial is located at a local park a few blocks from our home. (Northwood park, Irvine Ca.) "The Gratitude & Honor Memorial"
What is funny is that it started out as a crucifix per corpse, but eventually there were too many corpses to set up sticks for all of them. And of course it continues. Will a "permanant" memorial have ellipses for the continuing dead? Will the corpses from the Afghan adventure get their own, or have to share?
The temporary memorial also gets commented upon ---I've seen "Empire" pasted over it, sometimes its torn down, and "FAIL" would certainly be appropos. A muslim symbol would also be pretty good, and a wiccan and atheist headstone too.
Pretty sure we don't need to be reminded of failed empire with more death memorials.
Especially near the children playground --no war porn in Irvine, thank you very much.
But the senile, impotent old men who push this kind of thing ---Andy Zelinko (retired cop, catholic) and the braindamaged, pseudo-doctor, and zionist filth Asher Milgrom, and others--- have nothing better to do with their time. (Check out Milgrom's bio at
http://www.amacorp.com/blog/?page_id=49 and you'll see what a freak he is/was. Holistic acne lasers, right. He also gave over two grand to the McCain/MILF campaign)
Just some of the freaks in Irvine. I've mentioned onetime mayor Christina Shea who's live in daughter was a methamphetamine freak, while the elder Shea was mayor?

Now octuplet mom Nadya Suleman’s publicist has confirmed that she is getting food stamps, as well as federal disability payments for three of her older children, the Los Angeles Times is reporting. The Fullerton State graduate (she got her degree in child care development) told Ann Curry in an interview on the Today show this morning she did not get welfare.
Click here to see the video.
She said all 14 of her children were conceived with sperm donated by the same father, a man she talks to once or twice a year. He has yet to see his kids. “He was shocked,” Suleman said of the man’s reaction to the number of children he has fathered.
Now it turns out that three of the 14 children have disabilities. She also gets nearly $500 a month in food stamps. She told Curry she saved up for the fertility treatments she had. Click here to see pix and read more.

Drugs head apologises over ecstasy danger quip
By Tim Castle
LONDON (Reuters) - The head of the narcotics advisory board has apologised after saying the drug ecstasy was less dangerous than horse riding, the government said on Monday.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said David Nutt's remarks in a scientific journal sent the wrong message to young people about the dangers of drugs.
"I've told him that I was surprised and in fact profoundly disappointed by the article reported," she told MPs in the Commons.
"Professor Nutt apologised to me for his comments and I've asked him to, as well, apologise to the families of the victims of ecstasy."
Nutt, Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London, is the chair of the government's Advisory Committee on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD).
The committee is due to report on Wednesday on a possible downgrade of ecstasy from the top of the three-category classification.
Nutt wrote in the Journal of Psychopharmacology that 10 people in Britain died a year from horse riding -- or "equasy" as he called it -- and that it was associated with more than 100 road traffic accidents annually.
"Based on these harms, it seems likely that the ACMD would recommend control (for equasy) under the Misuse of Drugs Act perhaps as a Class A drug given it appears more harmful than ecstasy," he said.
Between 35 and 50 people die each year in England and Wales from ecstasy, currently ranked as one of the most dangerous Class A drugs, along with heroin and cocaine, according to government figures.
But Nutt said ecstasy was proportionately less dangerous, causing acute harm only in one in every 10,000 cases, compared to one in 350 cases for horse riding.
He said it was inconsistent to allow harmful sports while banning relatively less harmful drugs.

The africans (and arabs) still practice slavery. When the euros visited africa, they learned that they could buy slaves from their brothers. It still continues. In fact, an Irvine couple, egyptian, had a slave girl living in their garage. And today, africans still sell each other as slaves. Yet, the euros are blamed for it. FAIL.

In fact, the widely-promulgated idea that citizens are compelled to jury duty is a scam. The accused has a right to a jury, but this does not obligate innocent citizens to become property of the state. (Similarly, the same constitution allows for a military (although not the foreign intervention so common today) but does not permit conscription a.k.a. the military draft.)
You will read judges laud responsible citizens, that's fine, but you'll also read about judges having armed men pull people off the street. You will read about folks who are harmed by their jury experiences (from PTSD to physical discomfort to financial stress to child abandonment to the humiliation of a frisking) yet who never realize they are free. Free to ignore slavery notices. Free to decline the invitation mistakenly called a jury "summons".

BTW, carbon dioxide is not so bad. What is amazing is that humans have doubled the nitrogen and phosphorous inputs to the ocean. Nitrogen via the human nitrogen fixation process (for food) and phosphate, which is not normally very soluable, ergo, unavailable.

In fact, and I won't go into it here, some of the best Engineers I've ever met have not had formal degrees. I do, but everything I do is self-taught, like these others.

Unintentional Whitening of U. of California?
For several years now, the University of California has been debating plans to drop the SAT Subject Tests (formerly called the SAT II or achievement tests) and to find ways to consider more minority applicants. The debate has focused on the relative merits (or lack thereof) of the SAT and how to promote diversity while not violating the state’s ban on affirmative action.
In the past few days, however, a new issue has started to attract attention: concerns that the admissions policy changes that are expected to be approved by the Board of Regents today could lead to a significant drop in the numbers of Asian-American applicants who are admitted — with the major gains going to white applicants.
According to data prepared by the university and just starting to receive attention, 36 percent of those admitted to the university system in 2007-8 were Asian Americans. Applying the new admissions standards, that percentage would drop to 29-32 percent. In contrast, white applicants made up 34 percent of those admitted in 2007-8. Under the proposed reforms, they would have made up 41 to 44 percent of the entering class. The bottom line is that Asian Americans would shift from being the largest group gaining admission to the University of California to the second.
Some Asian American groups are calling on the Board of Regents to hold off on any vote today, raising questions about the fairness and wisdom of the changes being considered. (A board subcommittee approved the plan Wednesday, unanimously.)
“All of us share the goal of trying to preserve excellence as well as to promote diversity. But the gains for Latinos and African Americans in these projections are very small, while the decreases for Asian Americans and the gains for whites are quite large,” said Vincent Pan, president of Chinese for Affirmative Action, a national group based in California. “There’s almost a swapping out of Asian students for white students. Let’s not rush this thing.”
But university leaders are playing down the demographic projections and defending the admissions plan, which emerged from the Academic Senate, a system-wide faculty group. Mark G. Yudof, president of the university, said in a statement of the proposal: “It also sends a clear message to California high school students that if they work hard, take challenging courses and do well, they will get to make their case for admission to UC.” The university system has been praised by faculty and student groups for the planned shift.
Admission to the University of California is enormously competitive, and families in the state long to be able to send children to its prestigious campuses, where they can be educated at top research universities at a fraction of what they would pay for a private institution. In California, race and admissions have been tangled and divisive for years. The success of Asian American students in winning admission to UC campuses has meant that those institutions are in many ways more diverse than much of American higher education. But the state’s ban on affirmative action in public university admissions has depressed the admission of black and Latino students.
The proposal before the Board of Regents today would do the following:
- End the requirement that applicants submit two SAT Subject Test scores.
- Narrow from the top 12.5 to the top 9 percent of high school graduates the percentage who will be guaranteed admission to the university system (although not necessarily to the campus of their choice).
- Expand the definition of applicants eligible for a full admission review to include all who complete 11 of 15 required high school courses by the end of their junior year, and achieve a grade-point average of at least 3.0
The last shift is expected to greatly expand the pool of those entitled to a full admissions review, where personal qualities and other factors may help some win admission. Indeed those deemed eligible for a full review would go up in all racial and ethnic groups. But the gains in eligibility are not necessarily going to translate into gains in admissions for all groups — or into gains that reflect the gains in those eligible for a full review.

2. There is nothing wrong with recreational or medical cannabis use;
ask Lyon Lott how often he's gotten drunk, or how stupid he's become because
of it, or bang/raped his spouse (or dog, or daughter) when he or she was drunk.
3. Will MP endorse that bhong now?
MP's apologies are expected, and we won't hold them against you, sir. #include
Sheriff Lott's verbal turds will be held against him, no question. Retard.
Porn charges for 'sexting' stir debate
Should teens who send racy photos face serious felony charges?
Generally, the judges and attorneys who prosecute these cases are pedophiles,
internet pedoporn collectors, and suppressed homosexuals. Do some research.
Kids are kids. Kids with cameras and networks are still kids.

Ethnic remarks after killing upset Va. Tech leader
By SUE LINDSEY – 2 hours ago
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — An internationally diverse student body is vital to Virginia Tech, the school's president said Wednesday in response to e-mails and blogs disparaging Asians that surfaced after a Chinese student was accused of decapitating a classmate.
Vital because VT can't fund itself without foreigners paying out of state tuition.
At least he was black so no one will get upset. Its an "accident" after all.

(fairly eccentric). Some NPR (national propoganda radio) wonk said that it didn't matter,
that if you want to deter, you need 100% reliability. What bullshit. Even nukes have a
certain probability of predetonation. What matters is that others think there's a reasonable
Of course, a rocket that can do that can also reach some interesting places, carrying interesting cargoes. So expect the amerizionists to go "ballistic" (get it?)
at the ARI (here in Irvine) support open borders and zionism.
Guess what? Open borders only work if you don't have free
services. Yes, the free services are wrong, but given them,
advocating open borders makes them worse.
And the ARI is zionist, because they prefer Israeli culture to others.
But Israel was stolen from its occupants by the British colonialists
who obviously initiated force to do so.

He invented the income tax. To fund a war.
He jailed folks who didn't want to fight his war.
He waged the bloodiest war ever in American history.
He was a manic depressive lunatic who nearly destroyed the country.
And Obama thinks he's the greatest.
Previously wars were fought by volunteers, or in europe, mercenaries.
Previously, there was no notion of income tax.
Yes, I know this sounds looney. The Obama parallel is, as yet, imaginary. But the facts about Lincoln are known. Its not good that a supposed constitutional scholar would admire Lincoln.
Yes, its definately away from the mean to disparage Lincoln. But look it up.
While you still can. Google needs electricity you know :-)
a crime. Guess what? Free speech wins, there is no such thing as hate speech.
Some illegal immigrant got into UCLA --despite being way below their standards, because she's a mexican, which is illegal (unconstitutional in California).
What a waste of a good spot at a middle university. She's not even going to do well.
I wonder if Jason Song, the author, can be charged for failing to report a felony.
Turns out the woman is not married (natch!) and one of her existing kids is autistic. And all of her kids have been through IVF.
Her doctors should be de-licensed.

large negroes chase a testicle-shaped ball made of pig skin.
American negroes are likely selected for obedience, consider the number
of generations and the selection pressure.
Then you have scum like Jackson and Sharpton etc. Kinda makes
you want to sterlize all of them.
> dont kill yourself.
Or if you do, do so intentionally. And don't kill those
around you, or the medics who come to check you out.
[Moral self-euthanists who use CO label the closet so
the first to discover don't gas themselves. For similar
reasons, label your stuff so your kids know what hot relics they're
saving, in case you don't know your check-out date.]
I generally ignored the olympic (tm) crap, but now, I admire the fellow.
Swimmers should use water pipes, after all! He is totally rational. Unlike his detractors.
Mr. Phelps, you may have to "publically" apologize, but we can have a beer sometime.
two courses of ciproflaxin to see only temporary change. I've used topical antibiotics
and antifungals to no avail. I've freaked about MRSA but I it was diagnosed as cellulitis.
Well, some time ago I made more AgC2 than I thought clever, and put
it, in water, in lightproof plastic containers outside for maybe half a year at temperatures
between say 50 and 100 F. When I finally opened it, it was black goo, instead of the
beige flocculent originally produced. I thought it had completely decomposed, but when
dried, will detonate under flame, leaving carbon and silver dust.
But, it works great on my chronic sores. It is likely the highly dispersed silver, but the
dispersed carbon may also matter, and who knows, the energetic acetylide might be antibiotic.
Yes, it is lampblack dark where treated, but its winter, I'm wearing long pants, and this
is my thighs not shins.
I have some regular ole silver nitrate, that would form silver chloride on me, which would under light decompose to fine silver. One can also buy silver nitrate gel, if you want to pay lots of money.
I also have iodine crystals, for science not meth, but I haven't used those, and likely tincture
of is sufficient. I used that on some ringworm on my shoulders. I've also used turpentine, not sure if that worked, but its also a pre-industrial cure.
