ExxonMobil Denies Climate Change Publicly While Planning Their Operations Around It Privately

October 10, 2015

For decades, ExxonMobil funded climate denial. During those same decades, they were leading the industry in planning for climate change.

Fucking hypocrites!

Their lies may well cause human extinction. And, they’re still lying.

The executives at ExxonMobil are easily among the worst human beings on the planet and are a big part of the reason I’m a misanthrope.

Can we put them toes first into a meat grinder … and turn the crank very very slowly?


New Alzheimer’s Treatment Fully Restores Memory Function in Mice

Since, to my knowledge, the buildup of the amyloids is also an issue in Parkinson’s Disease and Huntington’s Chorea, I would hope that this treatment might also help with those conditions as well.

P.S. Do remember that until this treatment exists for humans, and possibly even after, studies have shown that regular consumption of coffee does dramatically reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. Prevention may still win, even with a 75% effective treatment.

Parallel Universes, Science That Can Be Tested?

September 11, 2015

[T]he idea that we live in a “multiverse” made up of an infinite number of parallel universes has long been considered a scientific possibility – although it is still a matter of vigorous debate among physicists. The race is now on to find a way to test the theory, including searching the sky for signs of collisions with other universes.

The Theory Of Parallel Universes Is Not Just Maths – It Is Science That Can Be Tested

Republican Polar Bears Stop Climate Research

September 2, 2015

Much like middle class Americans voting Republican, polar bears in Russia are acting against their own self-interest. In this case, they are attempting to stop climate scientists from doing their jobs. </snark>

Is the intelligence and complexity of the members of the cuttlefish family (octopi, squid, cuttlefish) proof of the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?


But, it sounded like a good introduction to a highly interesting article about the complexity of the octopus genome, the mapping of it, and the intelligence of this family of creatures.

People with no kids don’t know

August 17, 2015

He’s right. We don’t. And, some of us are very glad about that. Here’s Michael McIntyre confirming my more minor reasons for not wanting kids. Other more major reasons include not wanting them to grow up in our collapsing world, not wanting to pass on my diabetes, not wanting to further overpopulate the planet, etc.
