Interzone / Why End Democracy?
« on: June 10, 2010, 11:28:38 PM »
Machiavelli, in a tradition from the Greeks to the present, thought that that the Roman Republic worked because of a mixture of institutions, designed to correct each other and limit the abuses that various pure forms of government would have. Thus, he believed that Monarchy alone led to Tyranny, Aristocracy alone let to Oligarchy, and Democracy alone led to Anarchy. The Republic included a (limited) Monarchical power in the Consuls, Aristocratic power in the Senate, and Democratic power in the Tribunes and other institutions of the Plebs. We have other features, such as the custom for most of the Republic that one Consul would be from the Patrician/Senatorial class, while the other would be a Pleb.

Since, for at least the last century, most trendy political opinion has despised the principles of limited government and naively imagined that the more democracy the better, most recent judgment about the Roman Republic would be that it was insufficiently democratic. Indeed, a great deal of the political conflict through the whole history of the Republic was in the direction of greater democracy, of greater power for the Plebs; and for the last century, from Marius to Caesar, there was a virtual, and sometimes very real, civil war between Senatorial and Popular factions.


Interzone / 98.4 > 99.9 (Caution: HBD)

We have combined computational re-analysis of existing whole genome sequence data with novel microarray-based analysis, and detect 12,178 structural variants covering 40.6Mb that were not reported in the initial sequencing of the first published personal genome. We estimate a total non-SNP variation content of 48.8Mb in a single genome. Our results indicate that this genome differs from the consensus reference sequence by ~1.2% when considering indels/CNVs, 0.1% by SNPs and ~0.3% by inversions. The structural variants impact 4,867 genes, and >24% of SVs would not be imputed by SNP-association.

Our results indicate that a large number of SVs have been unreported in the individual genomes published to date. This significant extent and complexity of SV, as well as the growing recognition of its medical relevance, necessitate it be actively studied in health-related analyses of personal genomes. The new catalogue of SV generated for this genome provides a crucial resource for future comparison studies.


From discussion:

It is three times as much genetic diversity as Venter - a liberal - initially claimed.  Which, to quote Das, puts the variation “in the range of previous estimates of human/chimpanzee similarity”.

For Venter to state that humans populations are so closely related is simply political ideology, not science.

It’s actually closer to 25 times more.  Venter initially claimed that there were 2 million nucleotides (SNPs) that differentiate 2 genomes.  He was only off there by about 1.3 million.  But with structural variation, the current estimate is more than 50 million nucleotides difference between 2 genomes.

Major social networking site with a potential 5000+ metal listeners at http://www.radioreddit.com/?q=search/node/metal. We have a content promotion presence there with several participants.

Also, Radio NIHIL appears to be waiting for a new show. Anyone up for some DJ and authorship work?

Interzone / Most so called humans require regular supervision
« on: June 08, 2010, 02:08:48 AM »
Sensible behaviour producing multiple benefits is too challenging for the modern individual humanzee.

The textile recycling industry is one of the first recycling industries to be formed. Given the maturity of this industry it is very, very efficient. In fact, approximately 93% of all textile waste diverted to recycling is successfully reclaimed with about 35% going out as used clothing, 33% as reprocessed fibers (filler in vehicle seats and, upholstery, insulation, etc), 25% is converted to cloth wipes and 7% to landfill.

The interesting thing is that there is massive demand for used clothing, reprocessed fibers and cloth wipes. The recycling industry cannot get its hands on enough material to keep up with this demand. However, the recycling industry reclaims only 15% of the total textile waste that is produced. So what about that additional 85% that goes straight to landfill? Well the tragedy is that over 90% of that textile waste is perfectly recyclable. It just never gets to the recycling companies.


Interzone / Weakling appeasers spread USA ass for world rape

As many as 10,000 protesters from across the country – including family members who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001 – took to the streets in New York City Sunday to fight construction of a 13-story Islamic mosque to be built just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah.

Now the organizers plan to sue the federal government to designate the site as a war memorial.


Interzone / Cannibalism a complete solution
« on: June 07, 2010, 11:07:41 PM »
One thing that many environmentalists get wrong is they are trying to save the planet for the selfish reason of saving themselves. This will only hasten the destruction of the planet through overpopulation. The only way to save the planet is to dramatically reduce the population.

Do you know why Fiji has a relatively small population today in comparison to many of their neighbors? Because for thousands of years they were cannibals. No one wanted to vacation in Fiji because it meant getting eaten and as a result the people who survived were able to fully benefit from the pristine beauty and untouched natural resources of Fiji without having to deal with overpopulation. If each family would just eat 1 or 2 people a year, it would dramatically reduce the population of the planet and make life better for everyone.


1. Most people are stupid, ugly, weak.
2. Eat only the stupid, ugly, weak.
3. Human population significantly drops.
4. Flora and fauna return.
5. No resources are scarce.
6. Bright, beautiful, fit humans remain.
7. Golden Age.

Interzone / multiculturalism = oppression

This guy innocently did something that in our culture is considered brutality. Yet, his own people absolve him of any wrongdoing. It's normal where he comes from, but a high crime to us. The same system that imports him then slaps him with punishment then further punishes innocent citzens who did not want the immigration by taxing them for this hapless guy's lifelong upkeep in our liberal democratic dungeons.

Ali Abdi, a Somal Bantu, was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years to life in prison for sexual assault on a nine year old girl, despite pleas to the judge from two of his children.

bdi's lawyer argued that the case has to be viewed as different from others, because Abdi comes from a different cultural background. Erik Smart told the judge that Abdi fled Somalia and spent thirteen years in a refugee camp before arriving in Burlington. Smart says the Somali Bantu community has forgiven Abdi.

Notice that it isn't an overpopulation problem. It's a western meat-eating habits problem. By standing in the way rather than leading, the United Nations has been part of the problem all along.

A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today.

As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management.

It says: "Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products."

Not quite there, but, brownfields and land revitilization:

Brownfields are real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties protects the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off greenspaces and working lands.


Common examples are abandoned gas stations and dry cleaners, railroad properties, factories and closed military bases.

  • No one knows exactly how many brownfields there are; estimates range from 400,000 to more than a million in the United States alone.
  • As much as $2 trillion of real estate may be undervalued due to the presence of contamination.
  • Between 5,000 and 10,000 people make their livelihood in the brownfield market.
  • Environmental hazards are estimated to be present at 20-50% of all industrial real estate properties.


Interzone / Gross National Happiness
« on: June 02, 2010, 12:11:29 AM »
Today, the concept of GNH resonates with a wide range of initiatives, across the world, to define prosperity in more holistic terms and to measure actual wellbeing rather than consumption. By contrast the conventional concept of Gross National Product (GNP) measures only the sum total of material production and exchange in any country. Thus an international conference on Gross National Happiness, hosted by the Bhutan government in the capital city of Thimphu in 2004, attracted 82 eminent participants from 20 countries.


Looks neat at first glance, but simultaneously during those initial milliseconds, the pitfalls show up alongside. GNH can be gamed much easier than GNP. GNP is based on material metrics. GNH is based on opinions. Huxley must be rolling in his grave.

Interzone / Why liberal democracy and humanism is death
« on: June 01, 2010, 12:50:54 AM »
World leaders are more interested in AIDS medicine, the price of oil, and wheat surplus distribution to starving humans. It's what the people want.

The world's leaders have failed to deliver on a pledge to reduce the rate of biodiversity loss by 2010, scientists say.

In a study published in Science , researchers said governments had instead presided over alarming declines in biodiversity.

The pledge to reduce the rate of loss was made in the 2002 Convention on Biological Diversity and the research is the first to gauge progress towards the goal.

"Our analysis shows that governments have failed to deliver on the commitments they made in 2002. Biodiversity is still being lost as fast as ever, and we have made little headway in reducing the pressures on species, habitats and ecosystems," said Dr Stuart Butchart of the United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre and BirdLife International, and the paper's lead author.

"[This year] will not be the year that biodiversity loss was halted but it needs to be the year we start taking the issue seriously and substantially increase our efforts to take care of what is left of our planet."

The research was based on more than 30 indicators, including changes in species' populations and risk of extinction, habitat extent and community composition.

The researchers also included the Ecological Footprint, which measures the aggregate demand that human activities, through consumption of resources and emission of carbon dioxide, place on ecosystems and species.

They found no evidence of a significant reduction in the rate of decline of biodiversity and noted that the pressures facing biodiversity continued to increase.


Finally, the crowdist Me Generation entertainers leave. Now's the time to get some actual performing and fine arts in their stead.

Since the passing of Arizona's controversial AZ SB 1070, aka "the immigration law," which requires citizens to carry papers to prove their legalized status at the discretion of local police, the music community responded immediately...


Interzone / Defect is garbage and some defect is human
« on: May 28, 2010, 08:20:15 PM »
A human is an instance of a blueprint or a template, like an automobile or desktop computer design. Sometimes our reproduction assembly line makes beauty and intelligence. Sometimes the assembly line produces a catastrophic defect that we discard like the biogarbage it is:

According to the Telegraph, 26-year-old Nicola Ellington, was the first woman on record to have a “teratoma” tumor–derived from the Greek word for “monster”, Nicola’s tumor had teeth and hair–while pregnant. Nicola’s watermelon-sized “monster” developed in her chest and began crushing her lungs. Her doctor, Dr. Dawn Adamson, discovered the tumor and decided it needed to come out or else Nicola and her baby would die. The surgery was a success. Nicola and her unfortunately named baby girl, Layla, lived to make medical history.


Aww, how cute! No, it doesn't babble and crawl or open it's little eyes and smile at us. It's human and garbage.

2 cans Beck's beer
1 ripe apple
1 heaping bowl of cheerios and milk
1 quarter pound hamburger and fries
1 Wine bottle drained down to 1-2 ounces of stale swill and sediment

Consume beer late night and leave inside until early morning
Wake up and consume ripe apple
Let apple and beer residue ferment in gut flora 2 hours
Coffee and short nap
Consume cheerios and milk for early lunch

Wait 2-3 hours for stage 2 fermentation
Have burger and fries late lunch for rapid bowel catalyst
Ingredients should now be ready for excretion

Effluent tsunami should resemble a Biblical scale Exodus
Catch in mostly empty wine bottle but leave 6 inch air space in the bottle neck

After quick cleanup, carry corked bottle to nearest asphalt parking lot
It should be mid to late afternoon, so let bottle sit under blistering summer sun
After 35-45 minutes if the bottle doesn't crack, the cork should pop like a rocket

Immediately huff and enter the Promised Land of Jenk!

I said are these women working out? They’re not dressed for working out, they’re dressed for show. He said no, I call them the circle girls. The circle girls I said? What is this? He said we have women and some men here every day who wonder around the mall. They don’t have any money left, their cards are maxxed out but they’re still conditioned to go to the mall and window shop. So they wonder around a few hours and come home. He said it’s usually the same gang of about a dozen women.


Romero was right:

As the number of the living dead increases a disbelieving society slowly collapses. Martial Law is declared and citizens may no longer occupy private residence and instead are sent to rescue centers, many of which are already becoming overridden by the living dead.

Four of the few surviving humans escape the city in a helicopter. Running low on fuel they land on the roof of a shopping mall in search of refuge. Tempted by the supplies they venture into the shops they can see below. Although the living dead are at large they are few in numbers and the four manage to clear the mall and baracade themselves in from the ever increasing number of living dead outside...
