U.S. Air Force *Popular Mechanics*: *So Long TNT, There's a New Explosive in Town* *Bis-oxadiazole could replace TNT and other explosives in military ordnance.* The chemistry of explosives is a delicate matter.

If they don’t hop to it, the president is threatening to reconsider U.S. troop deployments abroad. In other words, he will take his soldiers from places like Germany, where they have been stationed for decades, and go home. Would he actually do it? You betcha and at the drop... more »

*by Noah* Every Christmas, far right loons like the barely coherent smug fratboy Tucker Carlson and screaming banshee Jeanine Pirro go on endless bitch-a-thons about towns across America that have stopped displaying Nativity scene creches on public property. The righties wring their hands, play their worn to a frazzle victim cards and cry that their "religious beliefs" are under attack. It's all part of their big whine about a so-called "War on Christmas" and "War on Christianity"; never mind that this pathetic greek chorus of whining is perpetrated by some of the most unchristia... more »

Stress Kills Your Adrenal Glands

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 22 hours ago
This makes you at least consious of your adrenal system health and its importance. It is subtle unfortunately and chronic abuse can creap up on you. We also have another pitch for the for vegan lifestyle here which looks seriously suspect without backup science. Recall that raw fresh liver is the best single source of energy to an Eskimo hunter. Unfortunately it is far too easy to be exposed to chronic stress and to learn how to accommodate it until something breaks. My own practice of fasting on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, eating lots of vegetables, enough sleep, has creat... more »

Qanon - Death Throes - Deep State

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 22 hours ago
Please watch this podcast. It fills in details of the plan of operations to take down the DEEP State. It will bring you completely into the present global meme that is driving the actions of the Trump administration from the beginning. The opposition has been allowed to show their hand but not to be publicly countered. Thus we have had false flags over and over again. If you do not plug in to this material you will be reacting to a lot of public nonsense unnecessarily. My target number for sealed indictments is 55,000. We now have 40,000 +. At 5,000 per month we are cli... more »

Massive atmospheric wave on Venus could explain the planet's weird rotation

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 22 hours ago
*[image: yellow mountains and surface of planet against black background]* The dynamics of Venus are completely strange and unexpected in every regard. I wonder just how long this can remain stable? Cultural sources suggest that it happens to be a recent addition to our skies as within the past ten thousand years. Add in the the atmosphere is 600 C or thereabouts and we must also presume that the rock itself is just as hot. It is not unreasonable to suggest that it was ejected out of Jupiter causing the Red Spot. It may well have been pulled into Jupiter and then ejected back out... more »

How to prevent pests in your pantry

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 22 hours ago
*[image: Image: How to prevent pests in your pantry]* This something we easily put out of mind until it shows up. I solve most of my problems by always having some form of a freezer to hand and using it to store flours and processed grains. They do not go rancid quite so quickly and bugs can not move in. This allows you to buy bulk lots as well and that has often meant getting ten kilos of oatmeal. Too much in your pantry is always a problem and open containers are never a good idea. Again large bottles can solve most of that. The take home is that pest management is an ongoi... more »

Trump's knowledge of American history is as thorough as his knowledge of everything other than grifting. That's why so many morons love him so much; they see themselves in him. I guess there's nothing we can do about that. Even when Max Boot speculated in his *Post* column yesterday that "If Trump announced he were going to spit-roast immigrant kids and eat them on national TV (apologies to Jonathan Swift), most Republicans probably would approve of that too," he was right on target. Anyone-- including Boot-- who thinks there is *anything* Robert Mueller could find that will that ... more »
