I recall a young chap back around '89-'91 who was a bit of a sensation at this type of thing.

This lady does (it says 3 miles, but I'm leary of it not being 5K) in 16 minutes. Flat.


Relish the accomplishments, Sarah. Look around, breath deeply and remember what it is like to stand on top of the heap of humanity, having conquered it.  I can tell anyone who asks, this; I remember that, and I've never felt more alive than when I was crushing the field like she is right now.

I'd give almost anything to have those times to live again.

The Star Trek Replicator,

Coming soon to a starship kitchen countertop near you.

Check it;
"Scientists at a number of labs (including mine) are now working on the real thing, developing processes that can place individual atoms and molecules into whatever structure they want. Unlike 3-D printers today, these will be able to build complete functional systems at once, with no need for parts to be assembled. The aim is to not only produce the parts for a drone, for example, but build a complete vehicle that can fly right out of the printer,"
"Labs like mine are now developing 3-D assemblers (rather than printers) that can build structures in the same way as the ribosome. The assemblers will be able to both add and remove parts from a discrete set. One of the assemblers we are developing works with components that are a bit bigger than amino acids, cluster of atoms about ten nanometers long."

Sounds like we're going to be doing a different kind of TV dinner by the time I croak.

More of that Jack-Booted Thuggery that I'm constantly assured never happens

Forcible rectal searches.

This shit is right out of the fucking dystopic, authoritarian playbooks novels that we've, some of us, few of us have read.

The worst part; this isn't the worst of it.

Get this straight; Your body is not your own.  The government considers you to be their property. Not yours, theirs.

Got it?

This isn't so much about the specific cops, the accused (pardon my condescension here), but a mentality that has metastacized, for lack of a better analogy, into a virus. It's a self-perpetuating thing, searching for more territory to conquer, at a geometric rate. This kind of thing is power, for power's sake, and it is never satisfied. It needs more. So it finds more. It attacks more to get more.

Soon, you will see stuff talked about in the news. Things you'd never have considered before. Forced abortions (it's happened before), Child limits (Hey, China does it...why can't WE be so...Progressive), forced organ transplants. No? You'll see this done, first casually, a newspaper article here or there. Then opinion articles in the usual, national Lib rags. You know the ones. Next will be movements and organizations, dot-orgs, position papers, and inevitably, politicians will pick it up. This should be easy to see.

No, you say? It could never happen here.

What the fuck was Obamacare about, then? The Government has given itself the authority to tell you to buy something that you might not need, nor want. The rationale, of course, is that you may need it, and therefore you are putting upon the rest of society by not having it, somehow shafting them with the bill (specious) if you were to need services.

Several years from now, you will get a bill in the mail, informing you of another tax, the reason given; you are too heavy, or too fat. You're not getting enough exercise, and you've obviously been abusing yourself by straying from your governmentally mandated diet. Too much red meat. Too much sugar. Too much starch (which for decades, they told you to eat in bulk). Too much sugar. Too much of everything. It will all be OK, too, because they've already told you that you must have insurance, and they've since told you to see a doctor twice a year.

And you go.

He runs tests.

They know.

They have a file on you, you see.

Consider what happens after that.

There is only ONE trajectory that this is going to follow, and the problem of these raping queer cops with a fixation for forcible, digital exams of your anus aren't going to get cured with a "review of procedure," or some other rot.

Got it?

You are going to be forced to either live with that jackboot on your face, or tear the whole place down.

You're looking in the wrong book

The headline reads;
"Iran's Khamenei warns of government divisions after rial plunge"
So, a country is seeing riots after witnessing their currency drop in value like a lead balloon.

Gee, WHAT a surprise?

I'm sure this is perplexing to those who don't understand stuff like economics...look no further than the current occupant of the Whore House as an example.
