Confessions of an Ex-Truther: Letter of Resignation
I was a true believer of all this controlled demolition nonsense for a time. I never cared about the physics or the claims of pseudo-”experts.” What always did it for me was the fact that there was never a decent response to any of these questions by the government. Even the hit pieces you’d see on 9/11 were always personal attacks. The mainstream never contested the actual “facts” movies like Loose Change presented.
Or so it seemed. After watching Screw Loose Change, I delved into the world of 9/11 Truth debunking. Among my favorites are the Screw Loose Change Blog and 9/11 Myths Finally, someone was answered all these pertinent questions with something that was a bit foreign to me… facts agreed upon by the experts.
There are no facts in the 9/11 Truth Movement. Just a lot of theories, which eventually break down to “hey, we’re just asking questions” if someone questions the validity of such. No structural, civil, or any engineers agree with the truthers. Yet, most of my friends will try to explain the hard physics involved in structural collapses. None of these people are engineers, physicists, or even in a scientific field, for that matter. Someone’s supposed to take their word over an expert’s?
I’m glad someone has seen the light. The whole “truther” bit really pisses me off. It’s been debunked. Get over it. By the way, the earth isn’t flat, it revolves around the sun, and Neil Armstrong went to the moon.
Kudos to Mike Metzger for having the fortitude and guts to realize this and to go public with it.
Wired Blogs: Gadget Lab – Bike Hits 130.7 mph. On Snow
Yep, some people claim I’m nuts. Gone bonkers. Out of my head. Crazy.
I submit that if that’s the case for me, this guy is way farther gone than I am . Markus Stoekl just broke the world’s speed record for a mountain bike by reaching 130.7 miles per hour while going down a snow covered slope in the Chilean Andes !
This is a classic example of courage, commitment, and dedication coming together to break a record. Congratulations Mr. Stoekl !

Jammers: Palm-Sized Cellphone Jammer Gives Public Gabbers the Smackdown – Gizmodo
I can think of quite a few times I wish this were legal for private citizens to own and use in the U.S. ! Some jerk in the movie theater chatting on his phone? Zap it! Some guy in a restaurant telling his buddy all about his recent colonoscopy? Zap it!
But alas, this is illegal in the U.S. . Oh well, we can dream, can’t we ?
FOXNews.com – California Police Find Guns, Cocaine Among Toys at Los Angeles Day-Care Center – Local News | News Articles | National News | US News
The haul included 14 kilograms of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana, several guns and $300,000 cash, police Lt. Paul Vernon said. He said the woman’s drug operation catered to Skid Row, an area known for its homeless and drug-addicted population.
Stupid is as stupid does – and this one has to rank near the all-time high for stupidity. When you take the 28 or so pounds of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana, a loaded assault rifle, and add in the kids for good measure then factor in that it’s California… Well, let’s just say that if this person doesn’t get life in prison, it’ll be awfully close.
FOXNews.com – Washington, D.C., Judge Issues Bench Warrant for Cindy Sheehan – Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum
WASHINGTON — A bench warrant was issued Thursday for antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan, who did not appear for arraignment Thursday in a Washington, D.C., courtroom to face charges related to her Sept. 10 disorderly conduct arrest on Capitol Hill.
She says she didn’t know about it. I call B.S. I had a traffic ticket once – and only once . I didn’t notice that no left hand turn during certain hours had become no left turn at all and got busted. You’d better believe that due-by date (pay the fine or show up in court) was etched in my brain until traffic school was completed and the fine paid. If nothing else, she needs better legal council.
Interesting side note – Ms. Sheehan is running against Pelosi for Congress because she claims Pelosi hasn’t done enough to
lose surrender end the war in Iraq. Not that she has a chance as Pelosi is Speaker of the House and positions of power like that make one highly re-electable due to pork-barrel politics and all. Something tells me that Pelosi’s power and the San Francisco area’s views on the war aside, this will torpedo any chance she ever had at winning. After all, how can you trust someone to lose surrender end the war in Iraq and bring home the bacon if they can’t remember a freaking court date???
I can’t say enough how much this vehicle appeals to me !
The looks alone were enough to start me drooling with the sci-fi like lines. Add in the way the doors open and I’m hooked! Then there’s the fuel economy – 230 miles per gallon at 55 miles per gallon !!!

FOXNews.com – Arizona Teen Becomes Sixth Victim This Year of Brain-Eating Amoeba – Science News | Current Articles
What was bothering Aaron was an amoeba, a microscopic organism called Naegleria fowleri that attacks the body through the nasal cavity, quickly eating its way to the brain. The doctors said he probably picked it up a week before while swimming in the balmy shallows of Lake Havasu.
Such attacks are extremely rare, though some health officials have put their communities on high alert, telling people to stay away from warm, standing water.
I haven’t gone swimming in a lake in many years, but it was a cool experience way back when. There was no salt or chlorine to burn the eyes. It tasted like tap water (not that I intentionally drank it). All that has now changed. I will never again put my head below fresh water again (without plugging my nose) in a warm climate.

BD-MICRO – BD-5J
I’ve always wanted one of these, well ever since I saw the Bud Light Silver Bullet microjet at airshows when I was growing up. Sure, I knew about the one in the James Bond movie Octopussy, but that didn’t have the cool factor it does now. I just knew it was small, jet powered, would fit in a garage, and I wanted one !

FOXNews.com – Eatery Owner Forced to Remove Picture of Chelsea Clinton From Window – Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum
New York restaurant owner Nino Selimaj is no longer voting for Sen. Hillary Clinton after getting a letter from Bill Clinton’s office demanding a photo of daughter Chelsea posing with Selimaj be removed from his Italian bistro’s front window.
Am I missing something here? Last I knew, Chelsea Clinton was over eighteen years of age, and therefore an adult. As such, is there any way that her parents should have any form of control whatsoever over how a photo of her, taken after she became a legal adult, should be used or displayed?

RICHMOND, Va. — A federal judge placed tighter restrictions on Michael Vick on Wednesday after the Atlanta Falcons quarterback tested positive for marijuana.
