Is Someone Pushing Us Into A War With Russia?

“Rusev? – Cruuuuush!”

Forgive me for seeing a conspiracy where there may be none. Even I can’t help but notice that a Malaysian flight was allegedly shot down over the Ukraine by a Russian missile on this, the anniversary of Flight 800.

Those Malaysian flights really get around. But that’s not the part that gets the conspiracy wheels cranking. It’s that plus this from Bloomberg Businessweek, also out today:

How Russian Hackers Stole the Nasdaq

The gist of it is, someone from Russia hacked into NASDAQ in 2010. Whatever they were trying to do failed, ultimately, but if it hadn’t, it could have tanked the economy. (Further? I guess?)

Now, 4 years later, details of the investigation are finally being released. The investigators don’t have enough information to say who was behind it for sure, but the strong suspect is a hacker group from St. Petersburg led by a man named Aleksandr Kalinin. Why them? Because according to the FBI, they were continuously attacking the DAQ from 2007-2010. All signs point to this man.

But who does Michael Riley, author of the Bloomberg piece, point the finger at? The Russian Government. Why? No firm reason given, but in that loose soil, a seed is planted. Of course we cannot say for sure that the seed is planted to the end of a higher conspiracy, but we can’t rule it out just yet because the timing of all this is obviously fishy.

So there’s my seed planted. What say you, commenters? Tin foil hat time or does this reek of a setup for getting America onboard with yet another in an endless stream of wars?

And if you live outside the U.S. – Does it feel as though you’re having seeds planted as well?



Australian Physicists Simulate Time Travel For The First Time

Time travel simulation [CTC]

Space-time structure exhibiting closed paths in space (horizontal) and time (vertical). A quantum particle travels through a wormhole back in time and returns to the same location in space and time.

Scientists at University of Queensland have simulated time travel using particles of light. The researchers used photon – a particle representing a quantum of light – on a closed timelike curve (CTC) [picture above] to simulate the behavior of quantum particles traveling through time, indicating how quantum mechanics might affect the presence of CTC. The study could eventually help us set light on how time-travel could be possible in the quantum world.

In the study, the research team simulated the behavior of a single photon of light that travels through wormhole and interacts unitarily with an older version of itself. The researches used mathematical equivalence between: 1) where the photon first travels to, and 2) where it interacts with its pseudo-self.

Okay, the ballots are in and the voting shall begin on what to name our new line of butterscotch-flavored Chicken Balls. End of round 1. A lot of funny suggestions for butterscotch; it’s going to be a tough call. Thank you everyone for making this such a great success. I feel like I’m winning something.

It’s time to move on to round 2, featuring that cool-breeze flavor, that first-date favor, that I’m-not-even-sure-if-any-of-this-is-making-sense deliciousness you know and love as… MINT! 


We come in peace. And in dark & milk chocolate.

As with last time, submissions take place on our Facebook page in the comments section of this very thread, which will have mysteriously appeared there by the time you finish… reading… this… sentence–and done! It’s there. It’s totally there. How did that happen? Hawaii truly is a magical land.

Please read those entrees which came before you to make certain you’re not…
