Ive been blogging on this site about 1.5 yr. overall… Read full post »
hi all, I was thinking I would relax until the 911 anniversary and this little incident popped up on my radar. this showed up on a conspiracy site that Ive been reading for years written by a washington insider. gareth williams was a brilliant 30yr old british spy who appeared to speci… Read full post »
hi all, sometimes you get the feeling you're living in a novel. on a semi bad day, heller's "catch 22". on a really bad day, orwells "1984".
about a half decade ago the pentagon announced an initiative called "Total information awareness" or TIA for short. inspired by our brand new shiny… Read full post »
hi all, I heard about the infamous P=?NP problem in college and immediately was quite fascinated with it and made various attempts to work on it. its a very elegant problem, arguably one of the most elegant in existence.
the basic question is, is the set of languages that can… Read full post »
hi all, I speculated on this only a few years ago and its become a reality.
the protein folding problem is one of the premier problems of bioinformatics. basically, the ribosome constructs proteins by stringing together amino acids, the "building blocks". the amino acid strings "fold up" in a… Read full post »
hi all, fyi, WARNING, caveat.. I just hit the open salon home page or maybe a user page [not sure which one] and it appears Ive caught a very virulent computer virus. it apparently ran Java 6 which I believe is installed by default on my HP laptop running windows… Read full post »

hi all. julian assange of wikileaks hit the jackpot with the afghanistan/pakistan intelligence files. quite a media hack. its the same kind of hacking that the Powers that Be have been doing since time immemorial. but now its in the hands of individuals.
private manning probably wouldnt have b… Read full post »
hi all, I tried to warn you. right after 9/11 I could smell the writing on the wall. (or the dead rat.) bush decided to build up the DHS, dept of homeland security in response. that single decision has led to some very heavy, now-metastasizing karma.
its taken 2 yrs of… Read full post »
hi all, Im so psyched, as Ive written in this blog, Im a big fan of the rhythm guitar games & have spent a lot of time on rock band 2 and bought a lot of the additional songs. at $2/pop, it adds up, but what a fun way to decompress,… Read full post »

hi all. heres another post Ive been ruminating on for awhile. surfing conspiracy sites, I just ran across a bunch of awesome links that articulate some of my recent ideas on the subject in a scholarly/scientific way. score! synchronicity I guess.
Ive always been interested in the study of psychopathy… Read full post »

yep, its an oil SPEW, not a SPILL. or gusher. in the sense that a SPILL is usually referring to a fixed amt of oil in a tanker. and I would argue that failure to frame the situation correctly led partly to the inappropriate response. the administration was convinced it was… Read full post »

hi all, the topic for this post is "globalization".

maybe the biggest "overt" way is electronics and cyberspace. the… Read full post »
hi all. the rand paul primary is stunning/startling stuff. Ive seen a lot of blogs on open salon dissing him, basically just parroting the MSM. yep, same old pabulum.
