Propaganda: You Are Doing It Wrong

How to Make a Fake North Korean Propaganda Movie“. I think the Norks do pretty well on their own, but why won’t they let that pudgy guy with the funny haircut wear one of their cool hats? Sure, sometimes they mess up and use scenery from “Call of Duty“, but they don’t have much of a budget to work with. Did you know they have their own decadent yankee capitalist YouTube channel with catchy videos like “World, No Freedom to Go to the Bathroom“?

An interesting story (referenced by the excellent blog, Parapolitical) describes an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un in the heart of Pyongyang and the back-story on the recent bellicose rhetoric from the North Korean regime. Is it just their way of saying “I can haz cheezburger… or any other food”?

Speaking of propaganda, what drop in U.S. unemployment? Ignore that “U3” number, it’s total crap. The real rate stands at 23%. Maybe more austerity will fix it… NOT!

Speaking of repressive government regimes, here’s a covert audio recording of what Bradley Manning has to say for himself after 1000 days in solitary confinement without a trial.

Is one of Barack Obama’s bodyguards a reptilian shape-shifter? Oh, please please please! It would fit so many paranoid fantasies!

Still more Papal conspiracy theories! Maybe he’s a reptilian shape-shifter! Oh, wait, that one’s been used already.

There’s something about Scribol that just pisses me off: it’s like getting Rick-rolled. This guy at TechCrunch doesn’t much care for the annoying interstitial-page click-baiting either. Maybe they’ll lose all their money and die horribly.

The New York Times has a fascinating article on innovative nuclear energy technologies… some of which are really old technologies. Did you know China is starting to build thorium reactors? “They’re doing laps around the track, and we haven’t even decided if we’re going to lace up our shoes”, how typically American.

Fun science! Shear-thickening liquid on a speaker cone sort of reminds me of some movie SFX:
