First Thoughts on Pulp Cthulhu

Daniel Stack at 19th Level - 7 minutes ago
*Pulp Chtulhu* was originally announced for "summer 2002" and was to have supported both d20 and BRP *Call of Cthulhu*, this supplement for *Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition* is at last available, at least in electronic form. With a Mythos game appearing as a likelihood this autumn, I've been flipping through its electronic pages. I'm not yet ready to give it a full review, but I've had enough time to get some basic impressions. As a supplement, *Pulp Cthulhu* provides a number of dials to decide just how pulpy one wants his or her game to be. Off the top of my head, the big difference... more »

The Forgotten War: The Situation In Yemen

Again, I am not shocked at all that the Jew spew media is absolutely refusing to talk about the ongoing war in Yemen for the simple reason the Jewish criminal controlled nation of Saudi Arabia is GETTING ITS BUTT KICKED!

“Grand spiral galaxies often seem to get all the glory. Their young, blue star clusters and pink star forming regions along sweeping spiral arms are guaranteed to attract attention. But small irregular galaxies form stars too, like NGC 4449, about 12 million light-years distant.

*"Positive Self-Deception"* by Damninteresting.org "Most people think of the "mentally disordered" as a delusional lot, holding bizarre and irrational ideas about themselves and the world around them. Isn’t a mental disorder, after all, an impairment or a distortion in thought or perception? This is what we tend to think, and for most of modern psychology's history, the experts have agreed; realistic perceptions have been considered essential to good mental health. More recently, however, research has arisen that challenges this common-sense notion. In 1988, psychologists Shelly Ta... more »

Do one ever accused Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy (R) of being a moderate. He hasn't been in the Senate long and he's already run up one of the worst voting records of any member.

Improper to ask accused to provide theory of case

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 3 hours ago
A witness is to testify as to facts - not to explain their theory of a case. R. v. Dhaliwal, 2016 ONCA 652: [11] This line of questioning was improper. It put an onus on the appellant to explain the allegations against him: *R. v. S.(W.)* (1994), 18 O.R. (3d) 509, 90 C.C.C. (3d) 242 (C.A.) at 252; *R. v. Vandenberghe* (1995), 96 C.C.C. (3d) 371 (C.A.) at 373. [12] The point was made by the Alberta Court of Appeal in *R. v. Kusk*, 1999 ABCA 49, 132 C.C.C. (3d) 559, at p. 564: This mischievous cross-examination wrongly suggests that the witness is advocating a certa... more »

Another Example of The Media's Mild Coverage of Turkey's Criminal Invasion of Syria

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 5 hours ago
*Related: Since When Did An Invasion Become A Plunge?* The New York Times described Turkey's criminal invasion of Syria as a "plunge." Now, Reuters is saying they are merely "crossing into" Syria with their tanks. Would they describe Russian tanks invading Ukraine in the same way? Definitely not. The crime of aggression is the most serious of offenses. But when a NATO country is guilty of this crime then it doesn't matter according to the criminal Western media. Ever since the U.S. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq based on false pretexts the crime of aggression has been ignored. It... more »

*A woman in Manbij in Syria sets fire to her burqa after the city was liberated from ISIS which had imposed a strict dress code on women during its brief rule.* Islam took something colorful and positive, in this case women's clothing and veiling, and made it dark and negative. As author Nancy Marie Brown *says in this lecture*, Muslims did the same thing with chess pieces, making the game more bland and boring by taking the life out of it. It was the Europeans who resurrected the game and livened it again by adding character to the pieces. France, England, and other European soc... more »

Hillary Clinton Avoiding The Press Is Finally Becoming A News Story (Maybe)

*Politico:* *Hillary Clinton, rarely seen, rarely heard* The Democrat lets reporters trail her but tucks them away to keep them out of sight and herself out of reach. Hillary Clinton has never felt comfortable with the traveling political press. As first lady, she would sometimes arrange travel for herself and Chelsea separate from her husband, partly to avoid the protective pool of reporters assigned to the president. In 2008, she “fought tooth and nail,” former aides said, to avoid sharing the plane with her press corps and relented only when her campaign was running out of mon... more »

Nestle CEO: Water Is Not A Human Right, Should Be Privatized

The Former CEO of Nestle claims that water is not a human right and that it should be privatized and controlled. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, the now Chairman of one of the biggest corporations and the largest food product manufacturer in the world, believes corporations should own all the water on the planet, and no one should be allowed to have access to it unless they pay. He also states that GMOs have never caused illnesses despite hundreds of independent studies showing otherwise.

Everything is Rigged

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 6 hours ago
You need to know this. But in fairness that is not the real problem at all. After all, our economy is an aggregate of markets and all markets are made in one way or the other and thus open to the claim of rigging. Yet that is supposed to be a benign process and it usually is a benign process. The problem is that it has matured into systemic corruption on an unimaginable scale and operates with blatant disregard to human rights and human safety. That is the sole reason that all the players are so uniformly against Trump. He just happens to be the one person who they can neit... more »

A readers comment inspired me to put together a descriptive covering the apparent cosmology of the spirit world. As we have already understood, the whole spirit world itself exists fully as part of the second tier of matter. Yet even there, the matter provides the skeleton while the photons consisting of two dimensional strips forming Mobius strips contain the information in the form of number. Note that both these are rigorously time independent. However, we are not trying to give you a headache. What this means is that life was initiated by spirit forms who themselves were... more »

*Whom to believe?* *Some interesting excerpts below from a long article that spends a lot of time looking at old philosophical questions. The author does make the point that decisions on some matters of alleged truth are easier to arrive at than others. And I think global warming is an example of that. Philosophical enquiries about "what is truth?" are largely irrelevant to assessing it. Why? Because it is a prophecy, not a fact. There is no proof available about the future of the climate. All we know is that sometimes it gets hotter and sometimes it gets colder. No other f... more »

There has been so much said about Trump's mental health-- lack of mental health-- that the American Psychiatric Association sent out a warning to its members not to diagnose the mentally ill without personally examining them and not to release the results without explicit permission.

But when a society establishes criminals-by-right and looters-by-law- men who use force to seize the wealth of disarmed victims- then money becomes its creators' avenger.

A European scientific study has concluded that on September 11, 2001, the Twin Towers were brought down by a controlled demolition. The study, conducted by four physicists and published in Europhysics Magazine, says that “the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.” Wnd.com reports: “Given the far-reaching implications, it is morally imperative that this hypothesis be the subject of a truly scientific and impartial investigation by responsible authorities,” the four physicists conclude.

Geoengineering: Louisiana Floods Were Man Made

It’s irresponsible for governors and state officials who declared a state of emergency in Louisiana not to understand how the devastating flood happened in the first place. Not when the facts, evidence, and “1,000 year” rain source are right here in front of them. Every week a governor in this country (or somewhere in the world) has to face devastated constituents who have lost their home and life’s worth of belongings, every week the manufactured cause is exactly the same, and every week it is dismissed (misdirected) as “Mother Nature”… clearing the way for the same thing to happen... more »
