I shared this tweet thread about the negative effects of porn before the hack, but it's probably worth sharing again.

Word of warning though, no fap is anti-semitic.

Thanks Enigmatic, really useful post and website - especially for young-men, who the magnetic pull of tits & fanny & whatever else you can think of is so easily available nowadays.
It's a dark world - the world of porn, low energy, mind-sapping (cock-sapping)  and cold. 
Of course, speaking as a once 'wanker-extroidinaire' (basically a red-blooded male) I speak with experience, as I'm sure alot of men do, and women - but mainly men.
There is something very low-vibration about looking at porn and giving it your energy/attention/time.
Once I stay away from it I can feel for sure that I feel better about things in general.
Great post mate.

No prob. I'm not posting it to make people feel bad either. I would be lying if I said I have never watched porn, but I just thought I would share info on the negative aspects as we rarely hear about them.

Just a random thought I've been having lately. Is anyone checking the fluoridation levels in municipal drinking water supplies in various locations across fluoridated nations? The docile way the population is behaving is due to mass psychological manipulation, yes, but is it possible they are also increasing the ppm / mg/L levels in drinking water supplies? Normally it's about 1mg/L.

 

Just a thought. Might explain a lot of the behaviour of the sheep.

Something to think about while eating turkey this Christmas...

 

In fact, in just about every language, the name of this bird is the result of geographical errors and verbal laziness, a legacy of the chaos and confusion that accompanied the initial era of globalisation.

 

The earliest use of “turkey” in English, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, was in 1541, with the word “turkeycocke”. This likely referred not to the bird countless Americans will eat this week, but to something like a guinea fowl or peacock, or perhaps to any exotic bird imported into Europe from the East. Europeans would generally purchase these birds from Turkish traders from Constantinople, and thus saw it as a cock, or hen, from the land of the Turks.

 

Soon, confusion descended: as British colonialists settled in the New World, the big edible game bird from the Americas became increasingly popular in Europe. Somehow, these different birds arriving from very different places were given the same name. By the early 17th century, the shortened version of this name, “turkey”, had come to apply primarily to the “gobbler” from the West.

 

Thus, Europeans accidentally named an American bird after a people who lived in the opposite direction, which may be fitting, since those people made a similar mistake. There were no turkeys native to Turkey, so Turks called the bird “hindi”, perhaps thinking it had come from India -- Hindustan in Turkish.

 

This also may have been because, in 17th and 18th century Constantinople, speaking French was popular among the city’s cultured crème de la crème. In French, this bird was originally called poulet d’Inde, or “chicken from India,” and later shortened to dinde. The French error may have been a result of the mistaken European belief at the time that the Americas were “the Indies”.

 

So what do Indians call this bird? India was also home to zero turkeys. But it is home to more than a hundred languages, and in many of them the turkey is called piru, or peru, which, surprise surprise, is the result of yet another geographical misconception. The Portuguese gave the bird this name because it apparently began appearing on their dinner tables right around the time their famously successful sailors conquered the South American country of Peru.

 

It doesn’t end there: the Cambodians named this bird after the French, while Malaysians named it after the Dutch, who in turn named it after a single Indian port city.

 

In the end, nobody seems to have known, or cared, from whence this bird had come. If we had figured it out back then, today we might know the turkey as “americkey,” or “rickey” for short. But in that crisscrossed first era of global trade, everybody screwed up. And in English, now the world’s lingua franca, the name of the country and the bird it never knew ended up as one in the same.

 

So today, in Turkey, many will enjoy a bird from America, accidentally named after India, possibly by the French. While Americans will eat a bird the British lazily named after the Turks. 

 

Gobble gobble.

I dabble with the odd cryptic crossword. I have just completed one, but I don't like not fully understanding why all of the answers are the answers. There is one clue I am unsure about. As follows:

 

'August 1, 1000 - Normans' first meeting.'

 

I had the following letters to work with:

 

_ O _ E _ N

 

I guessed that the answer must be 'SOLEMN'. '1000' refers to the Roman numeral 'M' and 'Normans' first' refers to 'N', which is the first letter of Norman. The 'meeting' bit refers to a 'Solemn Assembly', which is an ecclesiastical term and the general notion of the whole clue. I looked up the answer online and I was proven correct in my assumption that 'SOLEMN' was the answer.

 

However, I am still miffed, as to how 'August 1' relates to 'SOLE'. On occasion, one can find cryptic crossword clues fully explained on one internet database or another, but not this one it seems.  Being an arch-pedant, I find it quite irritating. Does anyone have any ideas?

Anyone have any tips to battle insomnia? I never used to struggle with sleep, but these days I lie awake at night being angry at subversives. I don't want to totally switch off because I believe that righteous anger is needed when facing evil, but I can't live like this. I obviously can't get professional help because of why I can't sleep well. This crap is going to drive people to suicide.

Close your eyes and concentrate on a black curtain.

After some more thought, I came up with two tenuous possibilities. A total, solar eclipse occurred on 1st August 2008, which could relate to SOL E, but that is so tenuous it is bordering on the impossible. Other than that. it could relate to there being only one Emperor Augustus, which August was named after. Maybe not quite as tenuous as the 'solar eclipse' angle, but still extremely tenuous. I give up, but I am sure that someone will figure it out eventually.
