What is a Trompe? A replacement for oil companies? Don't wait for a week-end to watch (video)

Bill Mollison, creator of Permaculture, explains compressed air systems used all over the world before oil companies tried to patent the system (and failed). Literature on the systems disappeared from the world's libraries about the same time. What if your car produced clean cold air?

Edit: Found a super condensed version:

Love is the perfect crime

If you love too much, never enough
there'll be no jury fastening the cuffs
You'll make a strong case in your own defense,
trial will rest on your conviction that you did your best.

KEEP PRETENDING IT'S OK. KEEP PRETENDING YOU'LL LAY YOUR LOVE ON THE LINE
WHY HAVEN'T YOU?

Love is the perfect crime. You'll never be convicted.

When love becomes twisted, who'll take the blame?
It's all in an afternoon in the heat of your shame.
You'll ask forgiveness, it was insane,
this too shall pass away but it won't clear your name.

Tittytainment

It's all we get anymore, on all channels.

Tittytainment

Tittytainment is a term describing the propaganda designed to protect the capitalist and neo-liberal principles that govern globalization.

It is a form of censorship, propaganda and disinformation with the fundamental objective of minimizing, in the eyes of democratic countries populations, the toxic effects that the current globalization is starting to create on a big part of the world population, according to anti-globalization groups.

Etymology and explications

The word "tittytainment" was coined for the first time in 1995 by the neo-liberal ideologue Zbigniew Brzezinski, member of the Trilateral Commission and ex-national security adviser of United States President Jimmy Carter, during the conclusion of the first "State of the World Forum", which was hosted at the Fairmont Hotel in the city of San Francisco.

Just Witnessed a Marijuana Arrest at SouthBySouthWest

Visiting Texas for the first time. While walking down a side street from the main drag, I just saw a guy get rolled, for smoking out of one of those ceramic cigarette looking one-hitters. It was a hipster bearded dude, maybe early 20's.

I guess I've just brushed the idea aside, knowing Texas has harsh penalties. But seeing it first hand really just hit me hard. Gave me a horrific tyrannical feeling in the deepest pit of my stomach. Might have been because he reminded me of myself.

Voting for the president is just a show, nothing more.

The entire presidential election is a giant race. People Love racing. Look how popular NASCAR is. Horse racing. The chariot races were the most popular event. People love racing. The status QUO knows people want bread and circuses. So one of the forms they give it to them in is the presidential elections. Who’s ahead, who’s behind. Can they get the women vote? How about the Hispanics? Where do they stand with single moms? How about on the military? What are the latest polls? How are they doing in the “swing states”? And on and on. Do you see? It is just an elaborate form of entertainment.

Uber Facing Trouble from Governments Around the Globe

The ultra-popular ride-sharing service Uber has been expanding its global presence, with 55 countries to date providing riders with cheap, effective and safe travel options that skirt the traditional pay-for-travel models popular with unions, government stooges, and lobbyists for the taxi and limos companies alike.

While Uber has had well publicized problems stemming from these forces of opposition here in the U.S., other nations have started cracking down on the ride sharing company as well.

Does human inability to learn from Ponzi mean humans are at the end of their road?

This is a serious question. At what point do we conclude that humans are failed experiment? How many times do "we" -- humans, as a species -- deserve another chance when we not only don't seem to learn but seem actually determined to NEVER learn? How many times do we, as humans, need to be swindled with, effectively, the same con by, effectively, the same people before it can be concluded we DESERVE what we get, instead of acting self-righteous, blaming others, or praying to God (and "Mr President") for deliverance from what we have deservedly coming to us?
