First, female generated sperm, now THIS.

It's all coming to an end, boys. Soon it will be all heavy-lifting-and-jar-opening, all the time.

When they come up with a robot that drinks large and tips big in the bars, we will have no further purpose.

My plan? Go out in a hail of testosterone induced madness.

I'll be semi-conscious with drink, pursuing lowest-common-denominator 'friendship' if you need me.

Which you no longer do, apparently.

Oh, and you can vacuum your own damn carpet, thanks for asking honey.

Weep for Caliban.

Egypt cuts fuel supplies to Gaza, UN condemns Israel


In a communique issued April 15 titled:

"UN agencies call on Israel to immediately resume full fuel shipments to Gaza"

Our friends at the UN spoke thusly:

“The current absence of fuel at petrol stations has meant that normal transportation has ceased,” the agencies said. “Many students have been unable to get to school, and many health professionals have been unable to get to hospitals and clinics. There have been difficulties transporting essential items such as food throughout Gaza.”

Two days later word comes from The Austrialian, via the World News Network (hit the link in the headline) that Egypt has done the same:

EGYPT has shut off fuel supplies to the Sinai Desert south of Gaza to deter Hamas from again blowing up the border wall and allowing a mass infiltration of Palestinians seeking supplies.

We await the condemnation.

Still waiting.

Also- Richard Warman is a dick, pass it on

So, uber Canadian human rights turd-sniper Richard Warman is suing some Canadian bloggers.

In a speech he delivered in 2005 to the Anti-Racist Action group, known for their violent tactics, he explained his 'Maximum Disruption' methodology:

The ‘maximum disruption’ part comes in because wherever I think it will be most helpful, or even if I just feel it will be the most fun, I strongly believe in hitting the neo-nazis on as many of these fronts as possible either at the same time or one after the other. I say this because it keeps them off-balance and forces them to respond to things that focus their energies on defending themselves…”

Chinese takeaway

I'm not an economic doom-and-gloomer, but this is somewhat troubling.

After having rated China's GDP at close to $9 trillion in 2005(second only to the US), the World Bank had to revise things after they did the...what's it called again? Oh yeah...math.

As a result, one quiet mid-December day in 2007, about 40% of the value of China's economy was written off the books.

Steve Maich has an interesting piece in Macleans. Hit the headline for the link.


The problem was, the World Bank's estimates were based on a study of Chinese prices that was 20 years old, and when Chinese authorities finally released updated figures late last year, the bank's estimates were wildly off the mark. When they re-crunched the numbers, it turned out China's economy was closer to US$5.3 trillion. On a per capita basis, that works out to just over US$4,000 per head, compared to US$41,674 in America. That one little accounting change meant there are as many as 91 million more people living in desperate poverty in China than previously believed.

Now some might say that it's just on paper, but paper can cover a lot of cracks, like those 90 or so million more people living in poverty. Recent unrest in Tibet and Western China may find unrelated fuel elsewhere.

In time, the market will take care of it, but time may be running out for China. Officially inflation is at 10%, but surging demand and scarce resources are applying upward pressure.

Then there's rice.

According to a story in the Sydney Morning Herald on April 7, the price of rice has doubled in the past year and quintupled since 2001.

It's probably nothing. Do they eat much rice over there?

Tribes lost

Former National Chief of Canada's Assembly of First Nations, David Ahenakew, has been invited to rejoin the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FISN).

In extending the invitation, FISN head Chief Lawrence Joseph said:

"He's apologized, he's won an appeal, he's been stripped of everything he had, including an opportunity to make a living, and he has not repeated that mistake in over five years. Let's be reasonable," Mr. Joseph said.

Mr. Ahenakew, a former member of the Order of Canada, became a pariah when comments he made to a local reporter in December 2002, following a speech he gave at an FISN gathering, became public.

Quoth he:

The Jews damn near owned all of Germany prior to the war. ... That's how Hitler came in. He was going to make damn sure that the Jews didn't take over Germany or Europe. That's why he fried six million of those guys, you know. Jews would have owned the goddamned world. And look what they're doing. They're killing people in Arab countries.

In 2005 he was convicted of 'willfully promoting hatred' and fined $1000, but the conviction was overturned on appeal a year later.

One wonders how Mr. Joseph would have felt regarding someone making similar remarks about native North Americans.

Showing more wisdom than the FISN, Mr. Ahenakew declined the offer.

Great news from the IAEA! Success!
