No brakes on that clock.

I didn't know which was the band and which was the song, so:
Quote:
Beelzebubba
Beelzebubba is the fourth full-length studio album by the American satirical punk rock band The Dead Milkmen, released in 1988. The album received strong reviews. The album features their best-known song, "Punk Rock Girl." In 1989, the Dead Milkmen released the Smokin' Banana Peels EP, which contained several remixes of the song "Smokin' Banana Peels." It also featured several previously unreleased songs.Wikipedia
Darwin's troubadours. What do you think, was the whole Tide Pod thing another part of the [apparently decades long] Conspiracy? To prime the [stomach] pump? Bored is the trigger word?

Consider the concept— that there is a fluorescent gas that is not Mercury vapor that has a favorable LD50. I think it's genius, but I'm not stable.

Bleach Boys was the song.

Quote:
Maybe there'll be a party at the beach
We'll bi+ch about life and chug-a-lug bleach
No one's getting high and no one's getting drunk
We got a case off bleach stashed in the trunk.
I wanna die with clorox within reach.
I'm very proud of the respect I've earned
And my voice is very deep 'cause my throat got burned.
Bleach keeps you young so I've been told
'cause no one who drinks it lives to be old
Drink it with a chaser is the first thing I learned.
He spoke about many things in that odd bit of performance art. Bringing UV light into the body and injecting disinfectant were a couple of them. But pulling something out of that ramble and saying "he's right" is like claiming Nostradamus predicted Virginia taking last year's NCAA basketball championship. Maybe you can find the right words in the right order somewhere, but I'm not buying it.

That's why it's not so easy to compare Norwegian police with American police.

The difference is as much in the clientele as the police themselves. How would them handle a Color Revolution?

America's Color Revolution - The American Sun
https://theamericansun.com/2020/06/0...or-revolution/
The color revolution is better described by the foreign observers who say "are externally fueled acts with a clear goal to influence the internal affairs that destabilize the economy, conflict with the law and represent a new form of warfare". Something happens, protests occur that switch from the event to the regime, next thing you know ...

The thing he didn't talk about was drinking bleach. That was purely a product of the press. Prolly to distract from Hydroxychloroquine. Same as with the "Fine People' hoax.

Your own video clip shows that it was the Security Director of Homeland Security that jump-started the misapprehension.

Regarding the new signature, this is the same reasoning I apply to prove that time travel is not possible by humans. If it were, we'd go back in time, introduce the future technology, which would then boost future technology, which could be introduced back in time, etc, etc. In other words, we'd have infinitely advanced technology now. I don't have infinitely advanced technology, just a stupid iPhone.

Thanx. I think it has layers. One is that it's a license to do anything that nobody comes back to stop you from doing. Tempered of course by countervailing forces.

I'd been thinking about changing it again:
Quote:
Robert hath a swift hand
He doth gaze upon the fyrd, and he maketh a plan
He hath a jaunty cap, perched upon his head, he is a longbowman
He did find an old bow of yew
And a quiver of arrows in his fatherís chest, wherefore I cannot say
But he cometh for thee, yea he cometh for thee

All ye bully-rooks with your buskin boots
Best ye go, best ye go
Outrun my bow
All ye bully-rooks with your buskin boots
Best ye go, best ye go, faster than mine arrow


Hildegard von Blingin'

It's possible to do something so catastrophic it ruins the possibility of future time travel...

I had a coworker that called the Foster the People song, the gangster rap song. He didn't like it, but I thought the song was catchy. Depicting gross violence light-heartidly is artistic in itself and underscores how insidious a culture of materialism is. Envy is a deadly sin, but since that's all nonsense, I guess we can dismiss what our very eyes perceive. Maybe it's video games.

I don't even want to think about that.

edit: I do think bully-rooks is the best part.
