“Chapel Perilous, that vortex where cosmological speculations, coincidences, and paranoia seem to multiply and then collapse, compelling belief or lunacy, wisdom or agnosticism.” ~Robert Anton Wilson

    Daily News Update

    Post by Lucid Memes on Tue Jun 22, 2010 4:49 pm

    This thread is for frequent news updates. Stories, events, articles, etc... Things that are perhaps not thread worthy in itself, or too silly to take seriously, but sufficient for commenting.

    If an event update spawns a significant chain of responses, a new thread will be created from it.

    The kiss amongst the mayhem:

    Sealed with a kiss: A man and a woman kiss as riot police advance during a protest against the G20 and the G8 summits in Toronto

    Don't like citing The Daily Mail, but there are better, or at least more evocative shots in there of the obligatory G20 riots than other news outlets:

    Not sure about the Ron Paul as the best option to save America and the world, as well as the absolute certitude in the internet's ability to neuter the mainstream press, but this guy's points are well presented and coherent on the whole.

    Have you ever listened to Republicbroadcasting radio? Interesting stuff on this free online radio. Today they were giving other options besides Ron Paul.

    Ah. Robin Hood. I'm Winston over there. Smile
    No. Not posting in that thread, the rest of the forum, sometimes. Have read some of it.

    It's not a "rat experiment" there though, to my mind. Just a place where people who often hate each other's guts, posting on an ideological basis argue like fuck over said issues. Thus it creates a high signal to noise ratio. cyclops
    You can find some good conversations there though, and info. At times.
