    Put in writing what everyone already knew....

    Video: Stewart “wears his heart on his sleeve”

    In his previous video, Steven Crowder blew the lid off of his rejection from Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart by publishing an e-mail from the show’s producer that explicitly stated that they don’t hire conservative pundits, even if they do invite conservatives on as guests. That resulted in Steven’s manager dumping him, as that e-mail was not intended for Steven. Steven doesn’t blame his manager for the response, nor does he quibble with the Daily Show’s right to hire whom they like. What he does object to is the notion that the Daily Show is moderate, non-partisan, and/or independent.

    In this video, Crowder plays some exclusive audio from Ben Shapiro’s interview with MTV Networks Doug Herzog about Stewart’s independence, part of his new book, Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV:



    I don’t think there is anything wrong with opiners wearing their hearts on their sleeves, either. That’s more honest than, say, holding rallies to “restore sanity” on the basis of moderation while refusing to employ people from one particular political viewpoint. And it’s certainly more honest than making political viewpoint an explicit litmus test when talking with an agent and then getting upset when it comes to light later.
    "We never book conservative pundits"...

    Clown nose off or on John.. your still an obvious libberal hack. Funny at times.. but drop the "moderate" pretense and try some honesty as ur really fooling no one at all anyway.

    Google Earth, an iPhone compass and experience playing 'Call of Duty' have been vital to Libya's rebel war plan

    IT is probably not what the designers of Google Earth had in mind, but for the rebels in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata their software has become a crucial part of the revolutionary armoury: a free battlefield system that helps them to aim mortars and pinpoint Gaddafi tanks.

    Other uprisings in the Arab Spring have leant heavily on the organising powers of Facebook and Twitter, but in Libya it is Google Earth that has become an invaluable asset.

    "The idea was that of an engineer named Ahmed Eyzert," said Mohammad Bashir al-Ruiyati, 35, who is in charge of artillery on Misrata's southern front.

    Mr Eyzert first looked at using the system to help the rebels when they began capturing mortars and artillery pieces from Colonel Gaddafi's troops in March, he said.

    The engineer was killed in fighting three weeks later, but not before he had worked out how to drop mortar shells on enemy positions by combining information from a French mortar-ranging table with the images and data available on Google Earth.

    The system has since been refined, and rebel scout teams with binoculars and laptops are often sent ahead of the shifting front lines to search for government tanks, mortars and rocket launchers.

    "This is a very important tool," said Mohammad Graisi, a lecturer in genetic engineering who organises the mortar teams west of the city.

    "They search through binoculars. Let's say there is a treeline with troops in it; the Google map allows us to work out how far and how many degrees of angle it is for our teams."

    In a building behind the front lines, Mr al-Ruiyati works from a child's notebook into which he has transcribed dense conversion tables. On his computer screens he points out yellow pin markers showing all the rebel weapons positions, while other markers are used to show the enemy weapons positions. The program shows the distance between any two points, accurate to one metre, and the relevant angle.

    The compass application (app) on his iPhone has also proved highly accurate, he said, with the rebels using an eight-metre length of wire run from the mortar barrel, with the iPhone on the end, to line up the weapon.

    A further innovation has been to pass locations by global positioning system (GPS) stored on Google Earth direct to NATO's liaison cell in Benghazi for use by NATO aircraft on strike missions. Rebel leaders said that some of the tanks they identified were destroyed inside Misrata using the co-ordinates.

    "We use Google Earth both in the frontline and here in the city," said Khalifa Abdullah Zawawi, the leader of the city's resistance council.

    They said that three computer experts had been entrusted with helping NATO's targeting by supplying GPS co-ordinates. The only problem they had encountered was that some satellite images of the area on Google Earth were from 2004 and no longer accurate.

    The rebels in Misrata say that despite their lack of experience they have been able to innovate their way around every problem that they have faced. In this they have been helped by the high numbers of university students, academics and professionals in their ranks, as well as the popularity of computer games in the city. Many of the rebels cite the sophisticated computer war game Call of Duty as their first resource of tactical military knowledge.

    "The secret of Misrata is that from the beginning we were an organisation," said Mr al-Ruiyati.
    Crude, but effective. One of the first uses of computers was to create gunnery tables for the US Army. Now it's come full circle.

    Wart blasted off with shotgun

    For five years Sean Murphy was driven to distraction by a painful blemish that no amount of creams, ointments or doctors' appointments could cure.

    So he came up with his own radical and permament procedure to remove the stubborn wart forever - he blasted it with a 12-bore shotgun.

    But not only did the blast take off almost his entire finger, it also left him facing 15 years in jail for the illegal possesion of a firearm.

    Yesterday, with only a stump to show for the middle of his left hand, and a suspended 16-week prison sentence, he insisted he had no regrets.

    “I’m happy with that,” he said outside Doncaster Magistrates’ Court, South Yorkshire.

    “I know I could have gone to jail for up to 15 years for a firearms offence. My solicitor did a very good job.

    What's most amusing about that video is seeing the utter confusion on the faces of those "progressives" when they are put into a position where they are forced to actually think about what they are saying, instead of just repeating the same bs they are taught by their liberal professors. Lol, once they get out of their comfort zone, they start squirming.

    Oh Boy...Not on my hungriest day would I consider this.

    turdish t-bones
    Somehow this feels like a Vonnegut plotline: population boom equals food shortage. Solution? Synthesize food from human waste matter. Absurd yes, but Japanese scientists have actually discovered a way to create edible steaks from human feces.

    Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, has developed steaks based on proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage approached the scientist because of an overabundance of sewage mud. They asked him to explore the possible uses of the sewage and Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein because of all the bacteria.

    The researchers then extracted those proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer and put it in an exploder which created the artificial steak. The “meat” is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.

    But this ? No way !

    Not again! World's biggest airliner loses wingtip after striking building at Paris Air Show

    An Airbus 380 lost its wingtip in a taxiing collision with a building, just two months after another superjumbo was grounded for striking a private jet in New York.
    The A380 superjumbo was grounded after the smash at slow-speed at the Le Bourget airport, where the Paris Air Show is taking place.
    The collision mirrored an incident at JFK airport earlier this year when a private jet was spun round after it was hit by the wing of an A380.

    ^^^ That's dangerous business.. running into stuff. Wonder if they were trying to park themselves w/o the aid of ground crew? Saw something similar when I was in the USAF. Bomb scare at the base and we were isolating all aircraft on the ground by parking all incoming aircraft on a remote part of the flight line. One c-141 crew got impatient and decided to try to go it alone. They hit a light pole and that sucker burned all the way to the fuselage. JP4 + spark = bad thingy. I thought we were going to lose the entire aircraft.. the base firefighters were really on the ball.

    You're right, Fluff. Some things aren't for this thread or to be taken lightly.

    At least it's not having the same issues the A320 had on a trial and demo flight ....

    Geert Wilders 'delighted' after being cleared of 'hate speech'

    By Bruno Waterfield

    Judges ruled that although Mr Wilders, whose anti-Islam Freedom Party came third in Dutch national elections last year, had made "hurtful and shocking", his comments were legitimate in terms of a lively Dutch public debate on multiculturalism.

    Mr Wilders, 47, was put on trial after complaints of incitement to racial hatred were levelled against him by Muslims after he released a film which presented Islam as the biggest threat to world peace.

    Fitna, meaning "strife" in Arabic, juxtaposed pages of the Koran with images of September 11 2001 terrorist attacks and fundamentalist burka clad Muslims with placards warning Europe to "be prepared for the real holocaust".

    The flamboyant, peroxide blond Dutch MP, who now holds the balance of power in the Netherlands by lending parliamentary support to the minority government, also described the Koran as "fascist", comparing it to Hitler's book Mein Kampf, a text that is banned in the Netherlands.
    Joke trial anyway.
