A race to model non-conventional weapons. Get everyone to work on your problem via covert outsourcing, throw them a bone so they’ll do your bidding, you win in the end and take their bones. WTF is a “conventional weapon” anyway? Something that is applicable to some convention, and “non-conventional weapons” are…what? Illegal? Illegal according to the same fucks who both making these weapons AND are also deciding what is/is not illegal?
Nice. Quite the racket

You’re gonna need people banging the drum for horrors much worse than the ones you are actually planning. Lizard royals, superflu(s), eminent war(s), aliens, anything and everything which can strain the imagination and prevent individuals from suspending disbelief. That way, your actual horrors don’t seem so horrible, are better than any alternative possibilities, and people may be more likely to think
“hrm, well that’s not so bad.”
You can then reel them in, “impossible” remains impossible and unrealized, “not as bad” horrors become the new norm, fin.

Ever notice that anything/everything world leaders say is batshit insane psychobabble? ‘Cept for your own leaders of course. Everything they say is either correct, or pretty goddamn close to correct.
Q: What are the odds that everything every world leaders say is wrong, except for your own leader(s)?
Yeah, I’m betting somewhere around nil. And yet, citizens from each country tow the line. Not saying that leaders cannot be correct, but most of them say the same shit or some variation on the same shit. How in the fuck is it that yours is correct, and all the others are incorrect. Even the oppositional stuff is the same shit in a different direction. Pretty good model for unity tho. They parrot the same shit, all are right, or all are wrong. Has an almost Three Musketeers ring to it. Till the backstabbing starts anyway.

A QUESTION FROM THE WHATEVER HOWEVER HOTLINE!!!
Q: Cade, why do you write about the things you do, and why do you continue to write about them in the way that you do?
Cade: Great question, and I can only give some answers which may not be “the” answers.
A1: I grew weary of subcontracting my understanding out to others. One day it kinda became clear that I had been farming my thinking out to others. I own the land, but someone else works it. And this is by no means an attempt to berate those who have taught me nor to degrade what their assistance has provided me. Plenty of people throughout history seem to have figured out some amazing stuff pretty much on their own, and yet we seem to live in a time where “you can’t figure out anything for yourself” is a quite common theme just about anywhere you look – I’m too stupid to bake a cake from scratch, I’m too stupid to jar my own pickles, I’m too stupid to fix my own toilet, I’m too stupid to do my own taxes…No, no citizen…sit back, relax, leave it to the professionals. Modern life is too big for you to make it on your own steam.
It became clear at some point that maybe there are those in the world doing my thinking for me, and maybe that these same individuals and/or groups don’t necessarily have my best interests in mind/at heart. Kinda jarring actually. Maybe even horrifying.
A2: I have access to quite an amazing tool called ‘The Internet’. Loads of information is relatively easy to access, and its full of parity, same parity, opposite parity, disparity…you name it, it’s there. All kinds of contrasts and flavors, and loads of stuff which I now have access to which I almost certainly wouldn’t otherwise. As such, my wandering mind can afford to stretch a bit with respect to not only what I research, but also the connections that I make. It’s a unique environment to search for paradox. Seemingly disconnected things which are in fact connected, even if their only connection is that they are not connected and/or not connected in the way(s) you thought they may have been. If I see an image, and it makes me think of something, I start writing about it, then a song comes up in my playlist which, oddly enough, also seems to have a connection with both the image and what I’m writing about? That’s weird. I’m likely gonna share that.

Raiders Of The Lost Park
Time: Distant Future.
Premise: Archaeologists excavate large areas all over the world which appear to have been plots of land set aside for unknown reasons. Some contain unique arrays of various strange contraptions and devices, winding paths, minimalist infrastructure/construction, and many appear to have been near creeks, rivers and ponds, but no clear evidence exists as to any specific purpose(s). Religious rituals? Centers of commerce? Lavish social events? The growing of crops? The keeping of livestock? Public gathering places for political discourse? Primitive scientific studies? Astrological and/or Astronomical studies? Public execution sites? Carbon Dating reveals that sites all over the planet appear to show that these areas ceased to be used at almost the exact same time, so what happened globally to cause them to all be, apparently, simultaneously abandoned?
Conclusion: We may never be able to answer these questions.

^Chlär – Artificial Supremacy [BD005]^
The best way to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution (the right to bear arms) is to not repeal it at all. You can go around the impossible by adding/modifying other laws to where the citizen(s) themselves are to blame for their inability to own, purchase or possess firearms and/or other weaponry.* We’re right in the big middle of a situation where virtually every level of government is abridging a piece of the 1st Amendment – the right of the people peaceably to assemble – and I see a law which “expands” what is considered a felony as a method of deflating the relevance of the 2nd Amendment. If you are a felon, you likely cannot purchase nor own firearms of any kind. Also if you are a felon, you are a felon for life, barring some extraordinary something which you are granted a pardon or your conviction(s) are overturned. As such, convict someone of a felony, and the 2nd Amendment is immaterial. It’s almost like…spiritual warfare.
* I make this note because what is/is not considered “arms” can and does change. A taser, a laser, mace (the spray chemical, not the surface-tosurface tactical missile nor the bludgeon nor the spikey-ball flail attached to a stick via a chain) a railgun (and that’s “railgun” not “railway gun”), a claymore (the sword, not the explosive anti-personnel mine) a box cutter or some other utility knife, strong acid(s), radioactive material, a … erm … virus or maybe some other disease …shit like that. I can “arm” myself with just about anything. Question is, what is a something’s intended/designed use or intended/designed purpose vs actual use.
^Triple French Pork with Svetlana – Cooking with Boris^
People seem to be pissing themselves over what that UFO video “officially released” by the US Department of Defense actually shows. You know what interests me? What the video does not show. You might be able to engage an enemy aircraft, destroy it, but modify video filmed from the aircraft to show…nothing.
Why would that be beneficial?
Welp…suppose China says USA shot down a Chinese aircraft. You could show that it was impossible for the aircraft in question to be involved because they were on maneuvers elsewhere in the world. See? We’ve got video proof right here! More disturbing tho, is the onboard weapons systems themselves. Could it be that a weapons system could be designed in such a way to display things which are not actually there?
Sure they could
We live in an era where it is not uncommon for a weapons platform like a fighter jet to never actually be within visual range of the targets they are engaging and/or firing upon, save for the maybe the advanced optics that a particular aircraft may be equipped with. Is it possible to bastardize systems to where they think they are engaging enemy aircraft, when they are in fact engaging commercial or maybe even general aviation aircraft or drones? I’d think it’d be possible. Not to mention that you might be able to access enemy weapons systems and have them chase phantoms or maybe even identify their own resources as hostile.
^The Loud Age – Sur La Maladie (Pt. 1) [PS06]^
There was a fire in/on South Padre Island…lightning appears to be the suspected cause.
If what I am reading is correct, people are cutting corners to make more money selling their, what appears to equate to, medical products. Cheap fillers, potentially unethical or even dangerous stopgap measures instituted so that production may continue, shoddy manufacturing methods…business as usual kinds of stuff. Just like any business might do when they want or need more money. Maybe even say…companies who produce vaccines or other medicine(s).
What really surprised me about the LA fire… Oh wait, I forgot to mention that fire. But yeah, watching a video of the LA fire and that HUGE deflagration revealed a company called ‘Biohazard Inc.’ Stuffed right in the middle of ‘Green King’ and ‘Green Buddha’ is a something called Biohazard Inc…
That looks more like a medical supplies page or a chemical lab equipment page than a retail paraphernalia business. I guess they are a manufacturer and/or wholesaler. I sure as shit know their “About Us” page seemed kinda ambiguous. But yeah…medical suppliers. Medical manufacturers. I’m mainly wondering how much “product” it takes to generate a deflagration of that magnitude, and what in the fuck they are doing storing that much flammable material in the same place. Let alone storing it in a place surrounded by what appears to be all kinds of other businesses.
You’re gonna get regulated to death after this. Pot finally starts to get some breathing room, and something happens that sucks the wind right out of you. Look, it sucks that there were firefighters injured. I hate it. But I also hate when shit has the appearance of intentional mislabeling. That does not appear to be an “explosion” to me. Not even a detonation of any kind. Even the video from a distance looks and sounds like a deflagration, but even the Public Information Officer calls it an explosion. Maybe I have an incomplete understanding of what an explosion is/is not. Explosion does sound cooler tho, and most people may not have a clue what deflagration even is.
Wonder if this Coronavirus thing is considered an explosion. Or is it more of a fuse. A something designed to burn at a specific rate in order to facilitate spacing between one event and another. I only ask because it would appear that Australia is wanting an inquiry into where nCoV-2019 came from.
Fires feeding fires

The fact that the Universe is 50+ billion years wide and getting wider and older all the time, but only 13.8 billion years old, is mysterious enough. Especially when Science keeps selling this business about certain constants always being constant, like the speed of light, all in the big middle of constantly changing how old they think the Universe is. But you know what is really mind-boggling?
Yeah, the symmetry of elements + the symmetry of when they supposedly formed on the universal timeline. How in the fuck is it that Hydrogen formed left, and right, and up, and down, and every other fucking place? Moving outwards from the point of this Big Bang thingie, shouldn’t there maybe be Hydrogen up, and maybe Hydrogan down, and Hydrogon left, and Hydrogenoganogon right, and Hydrogodonlyfuckingknows in the middle? Not to mention that all of these elements are all said to have formed at precisely the same time.
But to be fair, maybe this is why certain things appear to be so screwy. Positive/negative charges, entanglement, things appearing older than they should be, things appearing younger than they should be, spooky whatever at a wherever, things without mass and things with mass, up, down and all around quarks, things that appear to be in multiple places at the same time, black holes, matter/antimatter, etc…
^747 – Aurora Centralis (Tin Man’s Spaced Remix) [AQR015]^
With all that in mind, you know what else bothers me? If all of these distant galaxies that we are now seeing are really and truly no longer there because their light takes so long to reach us…
Q: Shouldn’t we not be here either?
A: ¿¿ ? ¿¿
If that distant galaxy can be seen, there’s a good chance that galaxy can also see us, yes? No? Am I being naive here about when our own galaxy may have been formed? I’m just wondering about the nature of this so called Big Bang with respect to the formation of galaxies, and why and maybe even how a galaxy would be able to project matter and energy outwards if it had no place to go. But the basis of my thinking in this case is why is it that a distant galaxy is thought to be gone (even tho we can see the fucking thing), and yet we somehow are not also gone.
One would think there is somehow an equality as to why things not only exist within a scope to where these objects can observe one another, (irrespective of how the information is exchanged) but also that there would be some kind of symmetry to it. Even if that symmetry is muddy or fuzzy. There would have to be something at work which maintained the illusion that a galaxy 20 billion light years away is still intact and recognizable as a galaxy, when in fact the galaxy no longer exists at all and hasn’t for some time. Some force which maintains a referential integrity of points in space long after these points are gone (if they are indeed gone, that is).
^Leftwing & Kody – You Were (Original Mix)^
Gone. What is “gone”. Wait. Would one of these questions be more correct?
Q: What is “gone”?
Q: When is “gone”?
Or maybe even
Q: Where is “gone”?
Maybe “gone” is an amalgamation of every interrogative where the sum total of all = 0. If any of the interrogatives != 0, then Gone = False. That sounds like it should be a SoPi. Let’s make it so: SoPi-X. And in the spirit of SoPi-X being a formula for the calculation of null within spacetime, I think I’m gonna forgo any kind of visual representation of it for the time being.
NOTE: Black holes, “empty” space, massless particles, dark matter/energy and the like won’t count because they occupy space(s) and time(s) in measurable and/or observable ways. Neither will extinct species, dead people, people who have yet to exist, ancient civilizations, dead languages, dreams, memories, etc., because they too occupy measurable space(s) and time(s). SoPi-X is to be representative of a never-was which cannot be calculated and/or a never-will-be which cannot be calculated, except via the representation of a 1 via 0. (zero(0) being the “one(1)” in this case)
I’ll need to chew on whether or not both 1 and -1 need to be addressed, and when. Also need to give some thought to things which may have existed on timelines we are unaware of, and whether or not the potential exists for these things existing again.
^Tom Neville – Slide (deadmau5 Remix)^
∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ + SoPi-X = ¿?
Wait…instead of combining ∞ = /_\ = ∞ with SoPi-X, maybe SoPi-X actually should be ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞
SoPi-X = ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞
I never had a name for that ∞ = /_\ = ∞ thing anyway. Maybe SoPi-X is just the thing for that thing. Problem is tho, ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ has another piece.
Plus, ∞ = -1 + 0 + 1 = ∞ is supposed to be more representative of how things bend + how endless cycles are formed + how things stretch. Even linear cycles which aren’t bent nor stretched at all.
It is part of the SoPi puzzle tho, and the SoPi puzzle is based more on Pi than anything else. Still, the circular + non-repeating cycles aren’t devoid of linear concepts. In fact they depend on them as far as I can tell. Is/Is Not. Closed and open systems existing in the same space(s).

What in the flying fucking hell is going on with all of these state-operated aerobatics teams appearing in the news? First there was the Blue Angels being mistaken for a UFO prior to the lockdown, then the Blue Angles started doing “appreciation” flyovers of major cities, then one of the Red Arrows were supposed to fly in to Southend Airport (but canceled), and now the Snowbirds are in the news?
To be fair, we are supposed to be knee-deep into the airshow season at this point in the year, but pretty much everything is subject to this lockdown, so no shows. That said, its damn weird that these military demonstration teams are appearing on the radar in some damn weird ways. Gotta sting tho that the Paris Airshow has been cancelled.
