Aides to Thinking

I read somewhere that the use of flight simulators to train pilots decreased the incidence of pilot error in flying by 70%.
What is a flight simulator?
Well I’ll tell you what it’s not…
It’s not a book.
It is in fact a device that allows you to experience the rigours of flying with one important exception; when you die in the simulator, you get to come back!
It’s video game ethics man!


Once you take the fear and finality of death out of the equation, what is left is a freedom to learn unabated. You reveal a path of infinite possibilities. This endless repetition hones ones intuition to a near instantaneous reaction time. Immersion technology could be to education what writing was to memory!
Epic in terms of paradigm shift.

Kim: These are the Cubans, baby. This is the Cohibas, the Montecristos. This is a kinetic-kill, side-winder vehicle with a secondary cyclotrimethylene trinitramine RDX burst. It’s capable of busting a bunker under the bunker you just busted. If it were any smarter, it’d write a book, a book that would make Ulysses look like it was written in crayon. Then it would read it to you. This is my Eiffel Tower. This is my Rachmaninoff’s Third. My Pieta. It’s completely elegant, it’s bafflingly beautiful, and it’s capable of reducing the population of any standing structure to zero. I call it “The Ex-Wife.”

Is there no magic left in the world?

Well, not exactly;

There is love,
and movies,
and beautiful women,
and gorgeous scenes,
and music,
and ideas,
and hope(that which they say springs eternally ),
there are beautiful minds,
that do nought but dream,
there are moments that inspire,
there are greatnesses that sit in ponds of mediocrity,
like so many wonderfully crafted native american totems,
there is imagination,
Also limitless,
and life,
most precious of all existences!
So there is magic in the world.

It just doesnt call itself that.

Ok, so your surfing along, minding your own business when corporate interest brings your webjoinment to a grinding halt…
What could this be you ask,
I thought the web was free you say…

It would seem that somebody over at the senile, decrepit but fairly well written site has it in their thoughts that you should not be able to view their content even though they’re more than happy to let you view some of their …ahem delightful commercials! Lol

well the next time THAT happens to you,
this is what you should do.
Just read the articles headline type it into a google search bar and shazam,
u can now get the info the way it was meant to be,

Neoconz Dont Invade NK!

Big picture:
America at war means you guys buy more debt from China to pay for the war.
I mean, who pulls the strings in NK anyway?
Who has the most to gain while you guys are stuck in another money pit where you dont even speak the language?

You guys go spread ‘democracy’ if you want.
In reality you’ll be REDISTRIBUTING your WEALTH to your creditor(China).

Kinda like the communists you detest.


Wow, the news is sooo weird.
Shit is always happening.
We gawk when it happens to other people. Fixated as if vicariously experiencing the inevitable a couple of times before its our own turn to serve as the example.
Like cattle at a slaughter, watching their buddies walk into the disappearing room.
