A Few Answers To Questions You Always Wondered About

Why do we hear time and time again about police shooting unarmed people?

I’d like to share this story with you. This happened to me recently:

At about 01:30 in the morning, I pulled up in my cruiser to a medical office building to follow up on a theft case I was working on. The parking lot is not very well lit. As I step out of my cruiser, a man runs towards me, holding something in his right hand. It’s dark, and all I can make out is that it’s thin, about 6″ long, and one half is wrapped in cloth. He starts swinging it around, yelling “I’ll fucking kill you! I’ll eat you! I’ll fuck you!”

I draw my firearm, point it at him, and start giving loud verbal commands. At the same time, I radio dispatch for help. He’s not responding to my commands. He’s still yelling, swinging the item, making stabbing motions, making threats. He starts approaching slowly, I back off to keep distance. We start moving into the street. About that time my backup shows up. Other officers draw down on the man, start giving verbal commands. He’s still not responding.

At this point, it would have been prudent to tase him, but my department doesn’t equip us with tasers.

What is the modus operandi of these Russian troll farms?

The idea is pretty simple: By imitating “normal Americans” and then espousing radical and extreme ideas, they were convincing real normal americans that those radical and extreme ideas were “normal american” ideas.

The idea was to drive people farther towards their fringe elements. If you were left of center, they wanted you to see prejudice, sexism and racism in everything and everyone. Right of center, they wanted you to see America “under attack from all sides” by Muslims, Liberals, whatever. If you’re black, they wanted to convince you the problem is white people. If you’re white, they wanted to convince you the problem was black people. They wanted to create more extremists, thereby destabalizing the nation.

This was elaborated in their military manual The Foundations of Geopolitics :

Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics”.

A guy from Sweden rode his bicycle to Nepal, climbed Everest alone without Sherpas or bottled oxygen, then cycled back to Sweden again. (article)

For his 1996 ascent, Kropp left Stockholm on October 16, 1995, on a specially-designed bicycle with 108 kg (240 lb) of gear and food. He traveled 8,000 miles on the bicycle and arrived at Everest Base Camp in April 1996. Following a meeting of all of the Everest expeditions on the mountain at the time, it was agreed that Kropp would attempt to summit first. On May 3, Kropp climbed through thigh-deep snow and reached a point 300 feet from the summit. However, he decided to turn around because it was too late in the day and if he continued, he would be descending in the dark. While Kropp recovered from the ordeal at base camp, the 1996 Everest Disaster unfolded. He helped bring medicine up the mountain. Three weeks later, on May 23, he again tackled the mountain, this time successfully summitting without extra oxygen support. He then cycled part of the way back home.[2] He returned to Everest in 1999 with his girlfriend Renata Chlumska to undertake a cleanup, during which they removed 25 discarded canisters from the mountain. They also successfully summited together.

How could you have everything and still kill yourself?

Imagine burning yourself. bad. Third degree burn bad. Nerve endings are fucked. You feel nothing in that spot. It’s numb.

How the hell can that hurt, right? Well, it’s the lighter burns around it; screaming in pain, that there’s a big thing missing. Only it’s depression, that numb spot is a lack of sensation. the areas around it are You feeling bad for not feeling bad.

So those smaller areas go searching for a cure. I tried making money. Succeeded. didn’t work. Bought my dream car. nope. Girlfriends. nope. Painting. music. woodworking. photography. Got good at some, but that feeling of accomplishment? I haven’t had that since I was 8, and got to be the scarecrow in the wizard of Oz in the school play. My dad showed up. he clapped at the end.

Sought therapy. three decades of it. really threw myself at it. nothing.

Tried travel; been all over the place. Standing at Mcmurdo station, checking the last continent off off my list after 15 years of busting around the world. I felt nothing. Hundreds of cities. thousands of stories. every chunk of land I could find. still nothing.
