Saddam’s Execution Scheduled – 6 a.m. Saturday

There is so much wrong with this sham of a trial (and his accusers), I barely know where to begin. But it matters now, the powers that be have demanded their pound of flesh while their own misdeed and evil nefarious acts remain unpunished.

Brace yourself for a great deal of grandstanding and backslapping as the Bush administration declares a “victory” and final “justice” while their own countrymen sink into the morass of civil war in Iraq.

Alternative What?

Over the past few weeks, I’ve had some interesting emails from Lonewolf, who has done some serious investigation into switching from his gasoline power generation (generators) to wind turbines. Since he is located in a Class 4 to Class 5 wind zone (seasonal mean wind speeds of 13.4 to 14.4 mph) this would seem to make good sense.

Using only 200 kw per month (less then 1/5th of most households or less), the actual cost of the equipment for this conversion would run a whopping $13,000 – $20,000, with a break-even point far off in the distant future of 30 to 50 years.

More Executive Backslapping

This kind of story just disgusts me. I’ve already reported on this, but there seems to be no end to the level of deception and planetary debauchery these corporate monstrosities are willing to embrace.  This isn’t a “distraction” enough – this is time for a honest-to-God-clean-the-house people’s revolution and throw these greedy sucking vortexes into a black hole of death.

Eating For A Month – Day 25

Breakfast: Buttermilk pancakes and freeze-dried blueberries, and a cup of coffee.

Lunch: Vegetable Lasagna from Mountain House. I really liked this, first time I tried it. I also had some peach drink from Rainy Day foods.

Dinner: Beef Stew from Mountain House. Easy to see why this is one of their top sellers, very good. Also had a buttermilk biscuit and Chocolate Bavarian Hazelnut Cream from Alpine Aire for dessert. Yep, I ate the whole thing too!

Inhabited Island Disappears Due To Rising Sea Levels

Over 10,000 people have lost their island. Lohachara island in India, drowned beneath the rising waves, displacing thousands of people. It’s not the first island to disappear, but probably the most inhabited “to date”. This will continue to happen, eventually displacing millions and millions of people. Estimates run as high as 500,000,000 will eventually be displaced around the globe.

Eating for A Month – Day 22

Breakfast: I’m a hot breakfast person, but tried the Blueberry Honey Granola from Alpine Aire. Even with the milk, I liked it. It also seemed to stick with me longer then the other breakfast foods I’ve tried.

Lunch: Bandito Scramble from Alpine Aire. Breakfast at lunchtime!

Dinner: Beef Stroganoff from Mountain House. This is one of Mountain House top sellers, and it’s easy to see why. Tasty and filling, I managed to eat more then I usually do. The two person serving was huge, but I made a big dent.

Eating For A Month – Day 20

Breakfast: Buttermilk pancakes from Rainy Day Foods.

Lunch: Creamy Potato Soup from Rainy Day foods and some fresh bread. Part of this bread mix was rolled out to make dinner.

Dinner: Pizza! You can make your own pizza dough from scratch, or from a bread mix. I used Rainy Day Foods honeywheat bread mix and their Pasta Pizza Sauce mix for the sauce. Added cheddar cheese, sausage tvp, rehydrated onions, mushroom slices (for everyone else) from Rainy Day foods, and freeze dried chicken from Mountain House. This could have been better, the cheese was too runny, fresh cheese would have worked better and some pepperoni would have been nice! This was my first pizza attempt and I could just as easily have made tacos from this mixture.

Eating For A Month – Day 18

Breakfast: Hashbrowns, scrambled eggs and a blueberry muffin from Rainy Day Foods.

Lunch: White rice, chicken tvp, chicken gravy, peas and buttermilk biscuit from Rainy Day Foods.  I prefer a hot lunch and it’s kind of cool when you can either have left overs or make up something like this for lunch.

Dinner: Hearty Stew w/Beef.  This was great, what can I say? Everything Mountain House makes is very good.

Carrying Your Shell

This is perhaps the funkiest thing I have ever seen: Snail Systems For Humans.

Want to know where to put it? There’s more here, rooms, shops, factories, fishfarms, even rocket systems. Take a good look and stop laughing. I’m not laughing. Their message is pretty clear.

And coming soon to a supermarket near you:

This is allegedly for real, television ads on eggs. Tip of the hat to “Dirt“, original at the NY Times (use for those pesky password sites). I agree with Amy, raise your own bloody chickens and bypass the corporate monstrosities that will soon be lurking around the toilet bowl too.
