Windows has admitted there is a serious flaw in Windows 10, 11, and server versions that remains unpatched. They tried to fix it but that didn’t work and added more flaws. Then they tried to fix THAT, and this one also did not work and also added more flaws. And this latest one also broke the fix a third party was able to make. Microsoft says they are working on it and you will get a fix when they are good and ready. Try Linux. Devuan.org is a good one.

Warp Drive May Be Possible

creagcridhe


Science fiction has long ago excepted the fact that warp drives, faster than light space travel, was possible. But until now, scientists have not agreed. Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre first proposed a warp drive in 1994, however the power needed to fuel the faster than life travel was too great to make it feasible. Scientists have now reworked the proposed warp drive and vastly reduced the power required to a level that could actually be plausible.

35th Anniversary of Voyager 1

jamesvalentine


The Voyager 1 spacecraft will be celebrating 35 years of operation on Wednesday, the longest lifespan of any unmanned probe so far. It is currently 11 billion miles from earth plowing through the giant plasma bubble that surrounds our solar system. It will soon break through this turbulent area into the galaxy beyond our solar system. Scientists have no idea how long it will take, as there is no evidence yet on how thick this region of the solar system is.

USA has all the oil it needs, why are we buying it?

creagcridhe


There was a strike of light sweet crude, the best grade of oil (better than Saudi Arabia), in the Permian Basin in Texas years ago. This strike gives the USA more oil than any other country and its the best quality oil not the crap oil that is the product of fracking. More oil was produced in the US in 2020 than we used. So why are gas prices so high? The oil corps are selling it on the market and buying worse graded oil for us to use. Just for more profit. We could have fifty cent per gallon gas just like Iran or Venezuela and big oil would still make an obscene profit. Instead they have decided to screw America over for just a little bit more. While our lawmakers do nothing but fill their pockets as well.

Social media

VividCandy


Where people yell racist insults at each other and feel good that their brand of racism is the goodthink kind of racism. At this point I believe 90% of the posters on social media are children, bots, corporate stooges, and influencers, that is, people paid to post there.

US Senate Posts a Win

unspecified_spam


With the complete incompetence of our lawmakers and indeed every elected official on display daily, we can all now breath a quiet sigh of relief that they have finally got their shit together. they have managed to sign a law into effect that does nothing concerning daylight savings time. Still have it. Nothings changed. Never mind the imminent nuclear conflict no one in America wants, never mind the crashing economy, never mind the exploding levels of violent crime and gang activity. Go after that pesky DST and do nothing about it, but do nothing about it definitively... like a boss.

Chicago Police Chief Throws Blame For Skyrocketing Murder Rates

unspecified_spam


Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy appeared on a local talk show and blamed special interests and lobby groups for the skyrocketing violence on Chicago city streets. He has previously blamed Sarah Palin, and "Government sponsored racism". The actual cause is a corrupt and lackluster police presence and an ongoing gang war over territory. But blaming others is easier than making hard changes to enforce the laws already on the books.

Petraeus Finally Fired

unspecified_spam


The CIA Director holds prisoners in a high security facility in Benghazi, long after a government mandate that the CIA is not to hold foreign nationals prisoner. He then shuts down the security of the facility before removing all the prisoners. Then, he doesn't move in support to protect them when they are attacked by elements of Al Qaeda resulting in the death of an ambassador. Then he lies to the American people and Congress about why the attack happened. Not Fired. Gets caught in an affair. Fired.

Matthew Jacob Marin, a Houston Police officer shot and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair after his fellow police officer was "cornered" by the wheelchair bound double amputee. Two cops, and a man with one arm and one leg, and they can't restrain him? And what deadly weapon was the one-armed man threatening them with? A pen. Marin killed another man allegedly in the line of duty in 2009, although this man was thought to have both his arms.

United Nations Supporting Syrian Regime

unspecified_spam


As the Syrian Regime headed by tyrant Bashar al-Assad continues its assault on their own citizens in Damascus and Aleppo, the United Nations is protecting servers used by many high ranking departments of Assad's brutal regime. The servers are run under the United Nation's Development Program, ironically an anti-poverty program. Well I suppose Assad is riding Syria of poverty, unfortunately his plan is to bomb and shell all the poor people in Syria until there are no more poor.

Sharks Attack!

unspecified_spam


We have all heard on the news the alarming increase of shark attacks world wide. Investigators have mentioned possible causes of the increase to warming oceans, increased human activity in the oceans, and food scarcity in the open oceans. But it's what the mass media is not saying that is the most frightening. Because while the name "shark" garners instant attention it is that other scourge of the sea and what they are doing to us that is in many cases much worse. While a shark attack can be fatal, it often only leaves physical scars, but that other sea-born atrocity can leave its victims devastated and mentally incapacitated. I am of course writing about dolphin rape. Reports of Dolphin-On-Human rape have increased by 83%, and the vast majority of dolphin rape and sexual assault cases go unreported due to the stigma of extro-species sexual contact. We must band together as a human race and stop this horrible crime. This message has been brought to you by Stop Dolphin Rape Society Of The World.

Unfair Employer

unspecified_spam


In this time of rampant unemployment and stagnant economy, I cannot believe the unemployment bureau can be so heartless. I was dismissed totally without good cause, and when I went to the unemployment bureau to get back the money I have been paying in for 25 years, do you think they gave me some? No, they told me they were backing the company's claim that is not ok to get drink at 8am until you pass out and let your dream-self do your work for you. can you believe that!!!! That is total BS, my dream-self can do twice the job I can. Damn you BlueStreak Airways!!!
