The Mysterious Case of Elisa Lam

There are mysteries that are so eerie and strange that they boggle the mind for days on end. The case of Elisa Lam is one of them. In February 2013, this 21-year-old student from Vancouver, Canada, was found dead inside the Cecil Hotel’s rooftop water tank in Los Angeles. The L.A. County Department of Coroner ruled the death “accidental due to drowning” and said no traces of drugs or alcohol were found during the autopsy. However, there is much more to the story than what is implied by police reports. The first piece of evidence that needs to be considered is an elevator surveillance tape that recorded Elisa’s behavior only a few moments before she lost her life.

Report: You Live In An Embarrassing Country

WASHINGTON—According to a new report published Wednesday by the Pew Research Center, you live in a deeply embarrassing and barely functional country. “Our latest research and statistical analysis shows that you are currently the citizen of an objectively humiliating nation wreathed in a miasma of pettiness, sloth, rank stupidity, and failure,” the report read in part, adding that this—this goddamned disgrace of a culture and system of government, if that’s what you call whatever the hell this is—is where you live, where you are from, and where you will likely die. “Decline and dysfunction are currently the first things people across the world think of when they hear the name of your place of origin, and, by association, these are the first words that would come to mind when they think of you as well.” The report concluded that there isn’t a whole hell of a lot you can do about it either.

Empty Causes....You have yours and I got mine.....

everywhere you looked there was confusion, violence, drama and drugs so many righteous revolutionaries spouting utopian love everyone shrouded in purple haze then one day they woke up from their dream state they found themselves no more at peace than before older, meek, and conformed

empty causes a bluster for the soul, a fix for their mind empty causes cling to everything you find

well, the shots rang out like popcorn and the Chief was hit and rushed out of sight the mohawk-chain, leather brigade rejoiced maliciously on that night someone cried out "fuck the government" his mates couldn't define what he meant so no one gave him the time of day and the scene died away

empty causes a war for the body, an army in the mind empty causes losing steam as time goes by

could it be that everybody selfishly desires their own personal retinue and that causes are just manifestations of too much time and far to little to do

empty causes direction for the soul, conviction for the mind empty causes cling to everything you find empty causes you've got yours and I've got mine

“I'm tired of this back-slappin' "isn't humanity neat" bullshit. We're a virus with shoes.”

I know it's a bit late but......

Fuck these assholes.

Dangerous Minds

And people still ask me why I am misanthropic

This skull may have just rewritten the book on human evolution

It's a discovery that could change our understanding of early humans. A 1.8-million-year-old skull from Dmanisi, Georgia suggests that early humans went through far more dramatic changes than we thought before evolving into Homo sapiens.

Kootenay pictographs vandalized with paintball pellets

Government archaeologists are trying to determine how to clean up some vandalism of First Nation rock art after someone apparently blasted paintball pellets at an ancient pictograph near Nelson, B.C.

We call vandalism to rock art sites " ass tracks " in these parts. I just can not understand the mentality of these assholes

Urine in the Web

In 1948 the pharmaceutical researcher Peter N. Witt discovered quite by chance that spiders build quite different webs when under the influence of drugs than they do otherwise. The psychiatrists at the Friedmatt Sanatorium and Nursing Home in Basle, Switzerland, were aware of Witt’s work and hit on the idea of trying to get to the bottom of schizophrenia using spiders.

It was a mystery – and remains so to this day – what the precise trigger was for the onset of this mental illness. However, fifty years ago scientists thought that they had found a promising lead: after taking drugs such as mescaline or LSD, healthy patients began to show symptoms similar to those exhibited by schizophrenics. These chemical substances induced short-term hallucinations and personality disorders. Could it be that such substances were permanently present in the metabolism of those suffering from schizophrenia? In other words, were schizophrenics on a constant ‘high’ due to a mere whim of their body chemistry?

So, at the start of the 1950s, researchers in Basle began to examine the urine of schizophrenics in an effort to discover what this chemical compound might be. Urine was chosen as the basic material for their investigations “so that we ‘d never be stuck for large quantities to work on,” as one of the team involved later wrote. But how on earth were they supposed to find a substance that, for one, they weren’t even sure existed in the first place and, for another, they had no idea what it consisted of?

The biologist Hans Peter Rieder collected and prepared 50 litres’ worth of urine samples from fifteen schizophrenics. The resulting urine concentrate was fed to spiders and the webs that they spun were then compared to those constructed by spiders that had been given researchers’ urine instead. If any systematic difference was evident in the webs made by these two groups, then it might well be that the substance they were trying to find was responsible. Moreover, if the webs also resembled those spun by spiders under the influence of LSD and mescaline, they the scientists would at least what type of substance they were looking for.

The experiment was conducted several times with various different concentrations of urine, but the results were disappointing: although the spiders certainly constructed different webs when under the influence of urine than they did otherwise, no systematic difference was apparent between researchers’ and schizophrenics’ urine. After a further series of experiments, the team came to the conclusion that the geometry of spiders’ webs just wasn’t a suitable tool for diagnosing mental illnesses.

But the researchers did find out one thing: namely, that the concentrated urine “must taste extremely unpleasant, despite all the sugar that was added”. The spiders’ behaviour left no room for doubt: “After taking just a sip, the spiders exhibited a marked abhorrence for any further contact with this solution; they left the web, rubbed any residual drops off on the wooden frame, only returned to the web after having given their pedipalps and mouthparts a thorough cleaning, and could scarcely be persuaded to take another drop of the stuff”.

Some times I need to remember.......

Had a shitty week at know, when every damned thing is your fault.....seems like everybody is out to make you look bad,...but you know what?.....Fuck 'em

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”

― Stephen King, Salem's Lot

Infographic: The many types of beer

The Magnificent Multitude of Beer

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed - Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'"

The Road to Hell is Paved with Tar Sands

It's the most polluting, destructive, expensive and inefficient way to extract oil from the earth. And Utah has rolled out the red carpet for this industry to come to the United States for the very first time.

Tar Sands and Oil Shale mining would put the Colorado River watershed, which 30 million people rely on, at risk of being contaminated and dewatered. Vast landscapes would be destroyed. Air quality in Salt Lake City would be further impaired. Climate disruption would escalate.

The approval of this first United States strip mine was granted despite evidence of catastrophic effects on health, families, water and forests, caused by Tar Sands strip mining in Alberta. And despite the reality that American taxpayers would essentially be hiring wealthy foreign corporations to do it.

First on deck to be strip mined is beautiful PR Springs in eastern Utah. U.S. Oil Sands (a Canadian company), having received approval from Utah's agencies, is looking for investors in order to get started. And the only thing getting in their way is a resolute contingent of local activists, attorneys and citizens.

The only walls I want around me are the walls of a slot canyon.....

Life is gaunt and spare in the desert, that's what old time desert rats like best about it. They feel they cannot breathe properly without at least a cubic mile of unshared space about them.

Let another man or woman appear on the horizon and they begin to feel the urge to decamp, move on, climb to the pass, investigate that purple range of barren hills beyond the gleaming salt flats,

find out what's going on in there, among those shadowy valleys, those ragged battlements of broken-down rock.

Where, as they should know damn well, they'll find nothing but the same scattered dried-out brittlebrush, the same fireplugs of barrel cactus with spines like fishhooks,

the same feral burros gaping at them from the ridgeline, the same dun-colored rattler coiled beneath a limestone shelf, waiting its chance to strike.

Don't tread on me.

You ask me my prediction for the end of the world?

I heard some people talking about some religious bullshit today and they asked me for my opinion on the Apocalypse.......

.....this is what I think will be the end of Humanity....

#1 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could be up to 1,000 time more powerful than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.

#2 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would spew volcanic ash 25 miles up into the air.

#3 The next eruption of Yellowstone seems to be getting closer with each passing year. Since 2004, some areas of Yellowstone National Park have risen by as much as 10 inches.

#4 There are approximately 3,000 earthquakes in the Yellowstone area every single year.

#5 In the event of a full-scale eruption of Yellowstone, virtually the entire northwest United States will be completely destroyed.

#6 A massive eruption of Yellowstone would mean that just about everything within a 100 mile radius of Yellowstone would be immediately killed.

#7 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could also potentially dump a layer of volcanic ash that is at least 10 feet deep up to 1,000 miles away.

#8 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would cover virtually the entire midwest United States with volcanic ash. Food production in America would be almost totally wiped out.

#9 The “volcanic winter” that a massive Yellowstone eruption would cause would radically cool the planet. Some scientists believe that global temperatures would decline by up to 20 degrees.

#10 America would never be the same again after a massive Yellowstone eruption. Some scientists believe that a full eruption by Yellowstone would render two-thirds of the United States completely uninhabitable.

#11 Scientists tell us that it is not a matter of “if” Yellowstone will erupt but rather “when” the next inevitable eruption will take place.

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity...”
