“As we’ve come to depend on a handful of commercial varieties of fruits and vegetables, thousands of heirloom varieties have disappeared. It’s hard to know exactly how many have been lost over the past century, but a study conducted in 1983 by the Rural Advancement Foundation International gave a clue to the scope of the problem. It compared USDA listings of seed varieties...

So TeaMp0isoN is on a mission to expose LulzSec. Let me tell you a little bit about what’s been happening, what it all means and how it’s going to affect us all. All this recent talk about hackers and “cyber-terrorists” in the mainstream press is really all about softening up the population to eventually accept the eradication of net neutrality. The upper echelons are...

I am beginning to believe, as a… I know precisely what you mean. I often find myself having mini existential...
In response to captainjackjohn’s latest post: The only way an ideal law enforcement agency can exist is if the personnel were artificially intelligent incorruptible cyborgs. As long as humans are manning the positions, the system will eventually falter. Fear and paranoia are prevalent because of caste systems and socio-economic disparities that give way to desperate and/or greedy behavior...

I’m unable to find myself in support of a social system that allows criminals the freedom to do as they please. There would be no criminals because there would be no laws. What we name them irrelevant. If people are free to rape and murder without there being a law to stop them, whether or not...

Gee, I wonder why they would do such a thing. Dimethyltryptamine isn’t even a profitable racket, yet they’re cracking down on its production. Obviously, cheddar isn’t the motive. I guess these hidden cabals really don’t want too many people liberating their minds. They horde not only wealth, but also knowledge. Almost every substance that shamans used to break through the...
