Will Obama Stage a Self-Coup?

Perhaps America, needs to suffer a disastrous, doomed coup attempt that gets lots of good people killed for nothing, after a resentful Black President loses in a landslide. Maybe only that horror show will shock America into confronting the truth of Black (and White elite) dysfunction and absolute, complete, and utter failure on every level imaginable.

Weeds cover a deserted theme park north of Beijing
China's ghost towns and phantom malls
The Disneyesque castle and medieval ramparts of this theme park north of Beijing, conceived nearly 20 years ago, lie abandoned. Local farmers grow crops among the empty buildings.

Mystery Sub Terrorizes Americans

It was quickly determined that this was likely a made up story as attempts to trace it back to the source ended at the politically funded, as in 501(C)4, web site.... Indeed, such an event makes it easier for the U.S. Navy to get more money for new submarines.

Sense of Events: Schadenfreude!

The Collapse of CNN
Yes, the US ratings are embarrassing in primetime. Yes, viewership is actually down in an election year. Yes, the website isn't nearly as good as it could be.  Yes, but so what? This seems to be CNN's answer to most everything: "Yes, but so what?"€

Joe Biden's Gaffe Watch
The White House press office has not released a complete transcript of any Biden speech, whether campaign or official, in more than two months. Transcripts for all of Obama's speeches, however, are distributed quickly, as they are for many of the first lady's events.

I sent this paper to JK Rowling explaining how the wizarding gene could be singular, autosomal, and dominant despite the protests of a bunch of fans who stopped learning genetics after Punnett squares. Warning: Contains science
Cross muggle-wizard adoption studies could provide evidence for this hypothesis. If wizard-raised muggles have the same limited abilities or muggle-raised squibs fail to develop these abilities it would prove an environmental factor. If the adoption studies provide no evidence, we must remember that these studies would not account for environmental factors in the womb. Unless there are any case studies of gestational surrogacy with a muggle child and a witch mother, the data would be inconclusive.

That Is Lot of Meat! - English Russia
How much does your car weigh? A tone? Or maybe two tones? That’s heavy indeed! But what about 180 tones of fresh chopped meat? Now we’ll visit a factory that produces around 180 tones of sausages a day.

Bad Break
"The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office has placed Walter White on their priority list of the county's most wanted," The Tuscaloosa News reports. "White, 55, was on probation for a 2008 charge of making methamphetamine when he was arrested on similar charges in Bibb County earlier this year."

Wildfires burn Western states
A fire burns near a house, left, on a hillside Tuesday above Bettas Road near Cle Elum, Wash., in this composite image. The same house, right, still stands a day later.

Perfect and Refreshing Example of Surface TensionThe swimmer is Tyler Clary.
Midriff Bulge: The sun's strange shape revealed
In a strange twist of solar physics, the shape of our sun is rounder than previously thought, yet at the same time, it is also flatter -- or squashed -- more often, making the star wider at the middle than at its poles, scientists say.

Wasserman Schultz, Party Girl
And how did she become head of the DNC? Anointed again, this time by the smartest man on earth, who knows a loyal party hack when he sees one.

A Collection of the Worst Truest Things V.S. Naipaul Has Ever Said: "The melancholy thing about the world is that it is full of stupid people; and the world is run for the benefit of the stupid and common."€
