Cleveland three from basement

Be the 1st to vote.

As a skeptic of media stories that go global, today’s global horror story is full of the usual anomolies, magic numbers, and fuzzy imagery. While I always start off in my mind with the story is likely fake, prove to me it’s real, I reserve judgement on this one until I see a few more details.

Perhaps an upcoming set of interviews with our fakery anchors Sawyer, Couric, Cuomo, or Cooper? I’m sure they’re in the works if not in the can already.

The woman’s voice was frantic and breathless, and she was choking back tears. “Help me. I’m Amanda Berry,” she told a 911 dispatcher. “I’ve been kidnapped and I’ve been missing for 10 years and I’m, I’m here, I’m free now.”

Google Glass a hoax?

Be the 1st to vote.

Is Google Glass a hoax? John Dvorak, someone I’ve been reading for 25 years,  thinks so.

An extremely elaborate prank. That is what I’ve determined Google Glass is as the company begins to ship these loony glasses.

They discussed this on the last noagenda.com link podcast. Personally, am liking the podcast more, even though initially I couldn’t stomach Curry’s delivery. I suppose you can get used to anything. 

The most interesting thing that Curry and Dvorak mentioned in the show was that their websites have been blocked by Google Chrome, and even Mozilla. Many people don’t realize that Google has a blacklist that blocks browsers using the proxy from “malware sites”. These are sites that google deems dangerous. Some sites have just one link to a graphic to another blacklisted site, and that gets them blacklisted. Since Google has captured the entire search market, they have a de facto monopoly. Many don’t realize that there are other search engines or email apps. Even old farts like me have forgotten how they used to search (metacrawler.com was a fave of mine) or emailed (I still retain my own pop server, but still like gmail’s filters).

My point is the google blacklist is akin to the FCC’s no fly list. It’s simple economic blackmail. No google hits, your website is out of business. For many businesses, no flying means no sales. First they control the money, then they control your mobility. That’s what they mean by a prison without walls (ask a dog about electronic fences).

Bring on the “amateur” Boston Hoax video

Be the 1st to vote.

Simon discovers this amateur video was uploaded at the same time to a video production company. Coincidence I’m sure.

Of course, Ryan Hoyme became an overnight TV star – and got interviewed by Katie-guess-who-Couric. Ryan’s silly script includes the preposterous line that“we initially thought it was actually fireworks” (a line he keeps reiterating in other articles/interviews)… Also, his other line (“it really didn’t sink in – until the other bomb hit”) is equally stoopid. We are talking about a 12-second timelapse, for chrissakes! And what about his statement that, referring to the blast, “it wasn’t as loud as you think it would be, you know, that kind of thing” ? Good grief…

Knowing what we know about Google, the mega video count also makes the whole video suspect and promoted “from the top”.

I’m sure there will be much more amateur video to come. Can’t wait!

Hello Youtube

Be the 1st to vote.

My ongoing (semi-decent) efforts to stick my straw in the Youtube tsunami.

Let’s see if there are any newbies who aren’t shills that want to learn. Keep you posted and share the video!

More Hadfield / ISS silliness

Be the 1st to vote.

How about breaking down a science experiment? Maybe even video it? (don’t worry, we will be watching for the fakery mistakes).

Nah, instead we have more music and tweets. Do any real scientists get aggravated by this blatant farce?

Astronaut Chris Hadfield led a singalong from space Monday, using his last video chat aboard the International Space Station to voice his support for music education.

General George S. Patton was assassinated ?

Be the 1st to vote.

A new book says so. Did anything happen in the past for real?

The newly unearthed diaries of a colourful assassin for the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, reveal that American spy chiefs wanted Patton dead because he was threatening to expose allied collusion with the Russians that cost American lives.
