Dinosaur Hoax Mockery

Obviously this was done to mock any notion that dinosaurs aren't real or are fabricated.


Los Angeles Rams player William Hayes does not believe in dinosaurs. He thinks they are a hoax. So Jimmy took him to the Natural History Museum in LA for a field trip. Here is Jimmy's dinosaur day with William Hayes.

Man Exists To Be Manipulated?

https://image.isu.pub/120527043723-50f2b41f576a4fdb9023e097b2b71a97/jpg/page_1.jpg

From the John Adams Recommended Reading List, The Hidden Persuaders is worthy book reading, mainly because it shows you how easy it is to manipulate the masses. It goes over the advertising industry and their practices in the 1940s and 1950s in how they strategically will help corporations sell their products to the masses using deceptive techniques. You get to learn the world of the Ad Men whose job it is to figure out how to subconsciously manipulate the human mind of the consumer to buy or consume a product they probably don't need and are instead made to want. These Ad Men use our deepest wants, fears, and insecurities as motivations that would get us to buy stuff we don't need especially coming off the heels of the Great Depression when people were in a conserving mode. The book goes over how the advertising agencies use the Freudian psychological research on the human psyche to craft manipulative advertising.

I think a book like this is put out there on purpose by the powers that be with Vance Packard as the front man author to warn us all, that we are being manipulated into buying unnecessary crap. I think this takes the heat off those who are conning us and balances things out for them. If a book like this is put out there and lots of people read it (Hidden Persuaders was a best seller) and do nothing about it and keep getting duped, then those who are deceiving us don't feel bad.

NASA And Hollywood Collaborating Is Par For The Course At This Point

This is laughable. Hollywood helped design the new Mars rover that just by coincidence looks like the Batmobile from Christopher Nolan's Batman movies. Sad that American tax dollars are funding this happy horseshit.

Wow!! New NASA Live Feed EPIC FAIL! They Cut Live Feed Right As Her Harness Malfunctions!

This is a good video showing how NASA whether by design or accident fucks up the faking of the international space station. The author of this video is a heavy promoter of flat earth which I want nothing to do with. So this is not a blanket endorsement of this YouTube channel by any means. I just like this one video by this guy, but I couldn't give a rat's ass about what the shape of the earth is and getting into a back and forth about flat earth vs globe or whatever the shape of the earth may be.


New NASA live feed epic fails. Astronaut Peggy Whitson tries a flip in space and has a malfunction with her harness, clearly showing the ISS footage to be fake, once again! We take an in depth look into this shocking footage.

New York City's Billboards Have Feminist Art Instead Of Ads

In another piece, titled “Boudoir,” photographer Lissa Rivera captures her muse and lover BJ wearing a robe and tights as he lounges, odalisque-like, on an emerald-draped cushion. A mysterious, gloved hand juts into the frame to brush his hair. In her series “Beautiful Boy” Rivera captures BJ in a variety of sensual, cinematic poses that riff off and subvert gender norms in and outside of the photographic tradition.

Their creative partnership began before their romantic one when BJ confided in Rivera as a friend, expressing a desire to explore his femininity by dressing in women’s clothes. Rivera, who herself had ambiguous feelings about her own femininity, suggested they untangle their relationships to gender together, using photography as a space where fantasy could override reality.

“I had been interested in the idea that popular notions of beauty are largely drawn from looking at repeated images,” Rivera said in an earlier interview with HuffPost. “The quality of the image has an incredible power to create desire, and that desire can be to inhabit the space of subject.”

Wow, I guess men need to express their feminism too, even for women.

Recreated Cold War Apartments Can Cure Alzheimer's?

Director of nursing home Gunter Wolfram poses in a 70s styled "memory room" in Dresden, Germany. This innovative approach uses decor, meals and music of East Germany of the 1960s and 1970s which is said to help revive old memories and the residents' sense of self.

One nursing home in Dresden, Germany, takes its residents back in time. Brown and yellow designs line the walls, as the scent of Spee and Fewa laundry detergent spreads throughout the room. Yellow magazines that haven’t been read in decades find a new home, joined by the plastic salt-and-pepper shakers that were owned throughout the former East Germany, which included Dresden. And an ”Intershop” sign hovers above a string of walkers and paraphernalia of the past, a constant reminder of the Communist era of yesteryear.

Alexa Seniors’ Residence has created “memory rooms,” that recreate the ambience of the German Democratic Republic (GDR), right down to the era’s meals, décor, and music. No detail was spared in the building of the rooms, from vintage wallpaper featured in German homes of the 1960s to the ditties spinning on record players. The goal is to encourage brain stimulation and reanimate memories of the past for the nursing home’s residents who suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia and general memory loss.

The idea for the “memory room” first arose during a movie night dedicated to films from the GDR, when the nursing home’s director, Gunter Wolfram, decided to add another element to the viewing. He brought in a “Troll” motor scooter from that era that he found on eBay.

Just seeing the scooter encouraged the residents to reminisce about everything from scooter functionality to first dates. Inspired by the reaction, Wolfram scavenged the internet and flea markets, and in January 2016 introduced a room dedicated to Cold War-era memorabilia. He accented their Ostalgie – nostalgia for culture in East Germany – with a framed photograph of Erich Honecker, East Germany’s longtime head of state.

I thought this was a joke but it's for real. Why not find the root cause of Alzheimer's, instead of addressing the symptoms, which I think has to do with health, specifically nutrition and exercise. Instead we get laughable treatments like this for Alzheimer's or the pharmaceutical and westernized medicine route. Also this comes off like it's from the movie Austin Powers, where he has to relive what happened in the 1960s after being cryogenically frozen. Seriously this is absurd.

How About Some Termite Chocolate Sprinkles On Your Ice Cream?

There’s nothing quite like the satisfying crunch that comes when biting into a salad. But what if that crunch didn’t come from lettuce or croutons at all but instead an unlikely source: insects?

Insectarium, a museum that’s part of Space for Life (Espace pour la vie), a museum district located in Montréal, Québec, Canada, is inviting adventurous eaters to dine on crickets, silkworms, termites and other bugs as part of a special program that runs now through the end of summer. The event features a variety of menu items that on the surface may appear completely normal (think gourmet hamburgers, tacos, falafel and ice cream), but with unexpected accouterments that most people typically deem as pests. Its purpose is to introduce visitors to this unusual—yet nutritious—food source in a fun and educational way.

“Insects are very high in protein, and they have all kinds of nutrients, vitamins and essential amino acids,” Daphné Laurier-Montpetit, scientific recreation coordinator at Insectarium, tells Smithsonian.com. “They’re also good for the environment because it takes a lot less feed to produce one kilogram of protein from insects as compared to beef and chicken.”

Not only that, but insects could very well play an important role in helping the environment by reducing harmful emissions that researchers have linked to livestock, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. But the first step is convincing consumers that eating bugs isn't gross as they might assume.
