MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Pre-Alpha Footage Here is hoping that it don’t suck. Not very good odds of that but at least they made it heavy and not arcadey. Still to early to tell what it is really going to be like though.
Trump and the Taiwan Call. Scott Adams’ idea that Trump is a master persuader does not even pass the laugh test. If he truly was a master persuader, he would not have so much of the country hating him. This is what a master persuader looks like. And he managed to get much larger percentages of country to like him even though he faced a media that thought his election was going to bring about nuclear war.
Unclaimed Dead To Be Buried In Mass Grave Noteworthy because this is bleeding heart California. I guess nothing says you matter like a mass grave. I don’t really think it is worth getting all outraged about this in particular. The dead don’t care. But the hypocrisy of California does get under my skin.
Dramatic decline in dementia seen among older adults in the US I think the most likely reason for the decline is that there is some medication that is being commonly given out that has a protective effect. I think research should be focused on finding that. I don’t believe that more education has a protective effect and I don’t believe that obesity itself has a protective effect. I think it is more likely that some third factor is the key.
Entertainment of the Day
I have never seen a better example of trash talking in a movie then this.
If your curios, there is a translation of the Latin under the description at the Youtube site.
I remember reading about sterling engines when I was a teenager because Dean Kamen was going to use them to change the world (And yes, I knew who Dean Kamen was before the Sigway came out. For that matter, he was working on sterling engines before then as well). But in spite of hearing about them and having them stick in my memory, I never had a good grasp of how they worked until I watched the video below. As far as I know, Kamen has never brought out a product that actually uses them in spite of his infatuation with them. But at least Sweden is using them to make really quite submarines.
If that is to cerebral for you, watch some Mas-wrestling. It is something we would have come up with when we were young.
Fire in Tennessee — Narrow Escape This is in the same general area of the country that Titi was in. The videos of the guy going through fire (supposedly without warning) are very scary. Some of the comments are interesting if you have time to read them.
Democrats won the most votes in the election. They should act like it. Scroll down to the correction at the end of the article. Be careful or you will miss it and go right on past it. Rarely has a correction more thoroughly debunked the premise of the article (remember, the title is that Democrats won more votes then Republicans and the article is not all about Hillary vs Trump). Apparently most of the people posting this article to Facebook don’t understand the significance of the Republicans winning 3 million more votes in the House of Representatives then the Democrats took.
In the movies, often times it is the ugly people who have all the talent. It is a shame they don’t get to shine more. What follows is one of the best (if not the best) representation of the Scotch-Irish pride that runs so strongly in rural America.
