  1. Funny News

    by , 06-16-2015 at 03:19 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    For a change there are some things in the news that are truly funny. That woman who has been masquerading as a Black person is funny. I probably shouldn't laugh much about this, and I haven’t, because the idea of there being several races of humans was only dreamed up a few centuries ago, and there is no scientific justification for such definitions (I’ll bet the unscientific readers will complain about that comment).

  2. Natural Cull

    There seems to be an innate urge for young adults to do stupid things, and that may be an evolutionary tool. The urge to drive fast, drink in excess, etc. traditionally eliminated some of the most violent and stupidest people, and they enjoyed it. That may be a cold hearted way of looking at youthful folly, but evolution is cold-hearted. Over the long run, the fittest will survive more than the less fit, but there is a legitimate question as to whether human consciousness is messing with that through ...

    Hazrat Promised Messiah Mahdi (on whom be peace) said about THE IMPORTANCE OF JALSA SALANA

    "Do not consider Jalsa Salana as an ordinary convention. This convention emerged solely by the help of Allah and His command. Allah has set the cornerstone of this blessed event with His own hands and prepared the nations for this purpose, who will enter in this Jamaat in the near future. (Announcement, December 1893)

  5. Silk Road

    by , 06-01-2015 at 03:41 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I never paid any attention to Silk Road, when it was in business, because I had no interest, but I find the life sentence for Ross Ulbricht to be absurd. Silk Road was an instrument for facilitating trade.

    The charges were: “narcotics trafficking; distribution of narcotics by means of the Internet; narcotics trafficking conspiracy; continuing criminal enterprise; conspiracy to aid and abet computer hacking; conspiracy to traffic in fraudulent identity documents; and money laundering ...
