In a 2016 oral history of South Park in The Hollywood Reporter, Isaac Hayes III confirmed that the decision to leave the show was made by Hayes’ entourage, all of whom were ardent Scientologists.

Pamlea Littky’s Photo Series ‘Vacancy’ Gives Us A Glimpse Of What It’s Like To Live In The Small Towns Of Death Valley

April 12, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

While driving between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Pamela Littky, was exposed to the small towns at either edge of Death Valley, the legendary region of the Mojave Desert that hosts the hottest and driest climate in the US. Anyone who has ever been there can tell you that there is little else on either side except for long, empty stretches of straight-line desert highway. But the Mojave’s harshest conditions have not deterred all living things. The towns that both claim the title of “Gateway to Death Valley” – Baker, California and Beatty, Nevada – are tight-knit communities of people who remain settled where most merely pass through.

From domestic scenes to colorful bars, trailers to bingo halls, and always the harshly beautiful and unrelenting landscape, Pamela brings the everyday life of these communities to vivid relief. Melancholy, atmospheric, sometimes surreal, these photographs feature people who are proudly and vivaciously individualistic. The culmination of visits that spanned years, Vacancy depicts a way of life that seem to defy how the rest of the increasingly fast-paced, urbanized world operates.

North Korean Fast Food

All of its burgers, whether made of minced beef, fish or vegetables, come with lashings of kimchi

Minced beef and bread costs $1.70 , roughly the same price as a McDonald’s cheeseburger in the UK but almost half the daily income of an average North Korean. The average wage in North Korea last year was just under $1000

Doctor violently dragged from overbooked United flight and dragged off the plane 

Passengers were told at the gate that the flight was overbooked and United, offering $400 and a hotel stay, was looking for one volunteer to take another flight to Louisville at 3 p.m. Monday. Passengers were allowed to board the flight, Bridges said, and once the flight was filled those on the plane were told that four people needed to give up their seats to stand-by United employees that needed to be in Louisville on Monday for a flight. Passengers were told that the flight would not take off until the United crew had seats, Bridges said, and the offer was increased to $800, but no one volunteered. Then, she said, a manager came aboard the plane and said a computer would select four people to be taken off the flight. One couple was selected first and left the airplane, she said, before the man in the video was confronted.

Fuck United Arilines!

This man’s name is Angelo Klonis, born in Kephalonia island Greece, he smuggled himself into the US in the mid 1930s on a ship from Piraeus Port to assist financially his family.

Chinese prisoners are used as live targets in a bayonet drill by their Japanese captors, during the Nanking Massacre, November 7, 1938

Account from Wikipedia really shows the brutality of the Japanese soldiers.

The door was open by the landlord, a Mohammedan named Ha. They killed him immediately with a revolver and also Mrs. Ha, who knelt before them after Ha’s death, begging them not to kill anyone else. Mrs. Ha asked them why they killed her husband and they shot her. Mrs. Hsia was dragged out from under a table in the guest hall where she had tried to hide with her 1 year old baby. After being stripped and raped by one or more men, she was bayoneted in the chest, and then had a bottle thrust into her vagina. The baby was killed with a bayonet. Some soldiers then went to the next room, where Mrs. Hsia’s parents, aged 76 and 74, and her two daughters aged 16 and 14. They were about to rape the girls when the grandmother tried to protect them. The soldiers killed her with a revolver. The grandfather grasped the body of his wife and was killed. The two girls were then stripped, the elder being raped by 2–3 men, and the younger by 3. The older girl was stabbed afterwards and a cane was rammed in her vagina. The younger girl was bayoneted also but was spared the horrible treatment that had been meted out to her sister and mother. The soldiers then bayoneted another sister of between 7–8, who was also in the room. The last murders in the house were of Ha’s two children, aged 4 and 2 respectively. The older was bayoneted and the younger split down through the head with a sword.

Guatemalans were deliberately infected with STDs between 1945 & 1956 through US government programme. They were kept secret until discovered in 2010 by a college prof. The programme published no findings, did not inform those who were infected nor did it provide them with follow up medical care (article)

During the experiments, the following occurred:

Prostitutes were infected with venereal disease and then provided for sex to subjects for intentional transmission of the disease;

Subjects were inoculated by injection of syphilis spirochaetes into the spinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, under the skin, and on mucous membranes;

An emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhoea was spread under the foreskin of the penis in male subjects;

The penis of male subjects was scraped and scarified and then coated with the emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea;

A woman from the psychiatric hospital was injected with syphilis, developed skin lesions and wasting, and then had gonorrhoeal pus from a male subject injected into both of her eyes and;

Children were subjected to blood studies to check for the presence of venereal disease.

What Would Happen If Every Nation Allied And Attempted To Invade And Conquer The United States?

April 5, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

by Jon Davis

Generally, given the rules that you set down I don’t think the U.S. would lose.That said, not losing is far from winning. We would suffer greatly and no longer be a world power worth speaking of. We would probably be little more than another third world power grasping for scraps. But we would maintain our sovereignty. The reason I think we would not lose are because without a nuclear strike and force large enough to take us out would take so long to muster and need to secure so much land that there is almost no way they would succeed in conquering us before we mount a counteroffensive or even first strike against them. You’ll see what I mean later.

Just for fun though… I wrote a scene of what I think it would be like if the rest of the world could use nukes. It is a much more entertaining story. 

Well if every country decided to go at it with us for poops and giggles then yes, I would think they would win. Sadly you got me considering how it would go down and I feel compelled to draw it out for future pessimists in the way I see that it might happen. The following sources for this come from my years in the United States Marine Corps including two very boring deployments where I spent months having these goofy hypothetical what ifs, amateur study of modern civilization strength and technology, and watching the 1980’s classic Red Dawn. Enjoy:
