the eight condiments
1. I’d Really rather you didn’t act like a sanctimonious holier-than-thou ass when describing my noodly goodness. If some people don’t believe in me, that’s okay. Really, I’m not that vain. Besides, this isn’t about them so don’t change the subject. 2. I’d Really rather you didn’t use my existence as a means to oppress, subjugate, punish, eviscerate, and/or, you know, be mean to others. I don’t require sacrifices, and purity is for drinking water, not people. 3. I’d Really rather you didn’t judge people for the way they look, or how they dress, or the way they talk, or, well, just play nice, okay? Oh, and get this through you thick heads: woman=person, man=person. Samey-samey. One is not better than the other, unless we’re talking about fashion and I’m sorry, but I gave that to women and some guys who know the difference between teal and fuchsia. 4. I’d Really rather you didn’t indulge in conduct that offends yourself, or your willing, consenting partner of legal age and mental maturity. As for anyone who might object, I think the expression is go fuck yourself, unless they find that offensive in which case they can turn off the TV for once and go for a walk for a change. 5. I’d Really rather you didn’t challenge the bigoted, misogynist, hateful ideas of others on an empty stomach. Eat, then go after the bullshit. 6. I’d Really rather you didn’t build multi-million-dollar churches/temples/mosques/shrines to my noodly goodness when the money could be better spent (take your pick): a. Ending poverty b. Curing diseases c. Living in peace, loving with passion, and lowering the cost of cable. I might be a complex carbohydrate omniscient being, but I enjoy the simple things in life. I ought to know. I am the creator. 7. I’d Really rather you didn’t go around telling people I talk to you. You’re not that interesting. Get over yourself. And I told you to love your fellow man, can’t you take a hint? 8. I’d Really rather you didn’t do unto others as you would have them do unto you if you are into, um, stuff that uses a lot of leather/lubrication/las vegas. If the other person is into it however (pursuant to #4), then have at it, take pictures. And for the love of me, wear a condom! Honestly it’s a piece of rubber, if I didn’t want it to feel good when you did it I would have added spikes, or something. http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Flying_Spaghetti_Monster Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dangerouslytalented/689292777820360 Twitter:

2016 moomba birdman rally
Visual content copyright Dangerouslytalented. CtiTV Inc. have filed a false copyright claim, possibly stemming from them having stolen my footage to use in one of their programs. The spectacle is part of Melbourne's Moomba Festival, held each year on the Labour Day long weekend. Contestants attempt to fly as far as they can without mechanical assistance — with most not making it more than a few metres before crashing into the Yarra. GIF: Birdman Rally competitors crash into the Yarra River The first Moomba Birdman Rally was held in 1976. The rallies were held until 1994 when the festival scrapped the event, before it was brought back in 1999. Michael Paul has competed in the rally every year since 2005 and has won nine times. He said one of the main things to remember when taking part in the rally was not to swallow any of the Yarra's murky water.Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dangerouslytalented/689292777820360 Twitter:

Melbourne Moomba Birdman Rally 2019 watch them flop and fly
The Birdman Rally is full of splashes, spills and thrills as everyday Melburnian's dress to impress and flap to fly - or fall, all in the name of charity. Whether it be with the assistance of a fan-dangled flying machine or simply super-hero strength, these courageous souls won't get their feathers in a fluster! Leaping into the unknown they will hurtle themselves off the Birdman platform, aiming to be the victor and 'fly' furthest into the drink of the awaiting Yarra River. Where man and bird (sub)merge! The 2019 Moomba Birdman Rally takes place in Birrarung Marr on Sunday 10th March as part of the Moomba Festival held on the Labour Day long weekend. The Birdman Rally is a competition for home-made gliders, hang gliders and human-powered aircraft. The first Moomba Birdman Rally was held in 1976 and made a comeback in 2004 after a 6 year break. This serious fun is for a good cause, with each jumper raising money and awareness for their nominated charities.

war on wind turbines
WAR ON WINDFARMS Coal, over the last hundred and somethingy years, it has been the quicksilver in the lifeblood of the economy. But coal is dying, the healthy pall of smog over the cities of the world is lifting as the world turns to cleaner modes of generating electricity, like putting the power stations out in the middle of nowhere. Then they tried pipedreams like nuclear, hydro, geothermal solar and windpower. Meanwhile jobs in coalmines are dying, the poor miners have to automate all their machinery just to save a few billion dollars of profits. And with demand for coal plummeting, the coal industry is trying to stop the profits from leaving their pockets and their mines from becoming unproductive sterile holes in the ground. So now it's WAR ON WINDFARMS. Yes, windfarms were the problem all along, I mean, those blades kill almost as many birds as a 17 storey building, while you can see this coal mine, not a dead bird in sight. And speaking of birdies, if a rich man goes out at 4 in the morning in scotland for a quick round of golf, the whirling turbine shadow can ruin his short game. And that's not even mentioning the sound... Listen. (pause) You can almost hear the windfarm over the wind noise. And then there are the health concerns. We gave this list of symptoms to people who live somewhere somewhat near windfarms and asked them if they had them. They said yes to some of them. I mean, nothing short of scientology will cure THAT lot of symptoms, and we don't even know what causes them. Could it be the infrasound, the low frequency audio that only whales can hear, yes, many of our industrial processes and freeways emit infrasound, but none of this infrasound sounds like the sound of a windfarm. Or could it be the magnets on the top of those poles? I mean, motherfucking magnets how do they work? No wonder literally dozens of people are creating websites about this menace, worrying about possible toxic emissions from windfarms, making sure birds can fly, golfers can golf, and miners can mine plentiful coal for millenia to come!

Word for the Ages  Agnotology
agnotology. Occasionally I find new words, words that have meanings that need to be shared so they enter mainstream language. Just such a word is Agnotology. This word was first coined by one Robert N Proctor a specialist in the history of science and technology, Basically, it comes from the greek word Agnosis, or not knowing. Agnotology is the act of deliberate culturally induced ignorance. The prime example of this is the deliberate campaign by tobacco companies to try to lead people to believe that tobacco products were healthy. Simply by funding studies showing everything else gave you cancer and giving doctors free cigarettes and saying that most doctors smoke this particular brand, they were able to completely muddy the water on the issue of what caused lung cancer. SPOILERS: It was the tobacco all along. But it's not just tobacco. Every harmful industry from radium paint to asbestos to the mighty fossil fuel industry has been indulging in agnotology in order to keep the profits moving along. And it is completely vital for those selling things like quack medicine, hey there's some stuff that only make sense if you know nothing about what's going on. And agnotology is the study of the process of why you don't know what you don't know even though the information is out there. Agnotology. Use it every day in your everyday conversation, it is another WORD FOR THE AGES. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dangerouslytalented/689292777820360 Twitter:

Debaptising the Dead baptised victims of Mormon Baptism for the Dead
Mitt Romney's baptism of his late atheist father in law has caused me to examine the issue of mormon baptism of the dead. And he is not the only one, everybody from JFK to Lee Harvey Oswald have been proxy dead baptised, even Anne Frank and the parents of Simon Wiesenthal and many, many other Holocaust victims have been proxy baptised as mormons. Rather than this mormon christening or baptism stand, I choose to de-baptise or dechristen these poor souls, to ensure that the Mormons cannot claim a stake on those they could not claim in life. Debaptism is all about being true to the memory of the dead, how they were in life. Mormon baptism of the dead simply overwrites the belief systems of the people concerned, And when I die, I would certainly not want to be baptized in ANY church, mormon or not. No, the Church of Latter Day Saints can go shove their baptismal fonts where the sun don't shine. Oh, and they can shove their magic underpants up their asses too. And their gold plates that only the prophet can read. The ceremony is completely made up, and highly insultinig. These proxy anointings and baptising of the dead have to stop, otherwise Romney's campaign for president in 2012 will be irreparably harmed, expecially if Mitt Romney's militantly atheist father-in-law, was indeed posthumously converted to Mormonism by his family. So if you want to make your own completely made up, highly insulting ceremony, just make it as a response. http://famousdeadmormons.com/

So you want to build an ark
So you want to build an Ark. Whether it is a tax dodge, saving all life on earth or a way of sucking the money out of the believers in a rapidly denying religion, building a lifesized replica of a boat that never existed can be a little exhausting. But you too can do it, just ask a plucky little Australian called Ken Ham. So how do you do it. First you need a small fortune. Only a hundred and seventy two million dollars. How do you do that? Well all you have to do is convince some rich religious people that by some miracle 1.6 million people will drive across the nation every single year to pay an undisclosed amount of money to get in or even purchase a season pass. Only 40 miles from glamorous Cincinnati Ohio, the one that is being built promises to be one of the greatest tourist attractions in Kentucky apart from a horse race and the antique shaker furniture museum. But how do you build an Ark? Let me pretending to be god explain. Make yourself an ark of gopher er douglas fir, and bolt it together with giant bolts and gigantic steel supporting plates and line it without with polyetheline sheeting during construction to protect it from rain. Make it the same number of cubits as in the bible, but make them the biggest cubits you can find so it looks really big Then you shalt not use any pitch inside it as is commanded in the bible, the fumes will give everybody cancer. Make it with concrete foundations and a concrete core, for wooden buildings can't take long term structural stresses. And you shall plumb it and thou shalt install cast iron toilets throughout. And thou shalt install a cafe, gift shop and petting zoo outside and carve graven images of two of every animal and put it within the ark. And thou shalt sell tickets at a price yet to be determined and try to convince the local council to widen the freeway to accomodate the extra traffic at their own expense. So you see building a lifesized building to resemble a boat that never existed is childs play when you almost completely disregard what is actually in the bible and also disregard reality Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dangerouslytalented/689292777820360 Twitter:

The Flat Earth - Spherical Earth EXPOSED AS A LIE
For the dozens of years since the creation of the earth, mankind has wondered what the shape of the earth. Ancient wisdom shows that it the earth is flat. But modern scientific technology tries to depict the earth as being some kind of oblate spheroid. Look at this picture. Surely if the world was round, this map would be a sphere. No. Just like the bible, it has four corners. Now I hear you say that the earth does not have four corners but is a sphere. But you can't see any curve. Not with the naked eye. For you to go high enough to see a curvature of the earth, you would need to wear a space suit in order to not die. But then you are not seeing the curvature of the earth through your naked eye. Therefore Science shows you the earth is flat. Go on. Ask any airline pilot why they don't fly over the south pole while going from New York to Moscow. Oh yes, they fly over the north pole all the time, but that is because it is shorter. Why never the south pole? Checkmate science! You cannot lie any longer! We know that from the time of Pythagoras and his false geometry that ALL the science has been lying to us in order to try to disprove god and to fuel the fraudulent military industrial complex with profits of death as they use the unworkable false logic to build missiles to destroy cities. and spend billions of dollars on sophisticated computer video technology to fake the moon landings. Even the United Nations know that the earth is flat Look at their flag. Your illuminati plot is exposed and not even Neil DeGrasse Tyson can save you now.

Powerpoint is a powerful tool for creating presentations. However, there is a dark side… the side of powerpoint that can cause many sleepless nights and audiences filled with sleep. DEATH BY POWERPOINT. Every second you present, you are losing your audience. They are people too, they have their own lives, and your presentation is sapping that life. Look at that graph. Nobody can read it, it is too complex, nothing is labeled, make it simpler and you will not lose your precious audience. But remember they are sitting there in silent judgement, they’re watching, they are watching, they are silently judging. And they need to get this information. So give it to them. NO… NOT THE WALL OF TEXT! Give them ENOUGH information. Too much is too much and nobody can understand. Five seconds. If they can’t understand it within five seconds, then it can’t stay in. Make it clear make it concise you don’t want them confused. And don’t use your slides as NOTES… They are of course, a visual aid, to enhance and demonstrate what you are saying. And for the love of all that is something, don’t clutter it up. Look at the fonts here nobody can understand anything. Apart from the bit with comic sans, which is just embarrassing. Which brings us to other cliches, star wipes and animated text. They usually demonstrate nothing except for the fact that you know how to animate text in powerpoint. And when you are choosing images for your slides, look at them on a large screen… This picture looks great at this size but zoom in… zoom in… zoom in...LOOK AT IT FULL SCREEN… oh the horror. But once you are able to judge your audience properly… Ah that’s something special.

homeopathy awareness week
http://www.homeopathyawarenessweek.org/ Homeopathy Awareness Week takes place from April 10th-16th and is aimed at raising awareness of homeopathic remedies. Each year, homeopaths from around the world use this week to promote their practice and gain publicity – yet public awareness of the realities of homeopathy remains low. For example, many people mistakenly believe homeopathic products are a form of herbal product – not realising that homeopathic products typically contain no active ingredients at all. Over two centuries ago, the first homeopaths perversely decided that diluting an active medicinal ingredient makes it more potent, with the vast majority of remedies containing nothing at all! Modern homeopathic tablets are generally 100% sugar, containing no active ingredient whatsoever. As part of Homeopathy Awareness Week, we would like to raise awareness of twelve key points about homeopathy: In 2010, the UK Government Science and Technology Committee analysed the research into homeopathy and concluded that “homeopathic products perform no better than placebos.” This conclusion was backed up in 2015 in a review by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council. With many homeopaths claiming their pills can treat serious illnesses, homeopathy is a dangerous placebo. When Penelope Dingle chose to take the advice of her homeopath husband and treat her rectal cancer with homeopathic remedies, the results were tragic – her death was, according to the coroner, the result of being “influenced by misinformation and bad science.” There are real dangers in using homeopathy in place of real medicine. Homeopathy is big business. The homeopathic industry is highly-profitable for companies like Boiron, Weleda and Nelson’s. The UK homeopathic market is estimated at £213m per year – comparable to the US ($300m), France and Germany (£400m each). All this for treatments which, despite hundreds of tests, have failed to show themselves to be any better than a sugar pill. In 2010, the NHS spent around £4 million on homeopathy – this money could instead be spent providing effective treatments, vital surgery and additional nursing staff. With NHS budgets under increasing pressure, wasting money by giving sugar pills to the sick is unjustifiable. According to the 2010 UK Government Science and Technology Committee: “The Government should stop allowing the funding of homeopathy on the NHS.” In 2012, Boiron settled a class action law suit over their popular ‘Oscillococcinum’ homeopathic remedy for colds and flu. Boiron claim the remedy is made from the heart and liver of a single duck - given that the ‘ultra-dilute’ remedy contains nothing at all of the original duck and generates over $20 million of revenue, it has to be the ultimate ‘quack’ remedy. Even now, groups such as Homeopaths Without Borders are currently offering ineffective homeopathic treatments in the developing world. Other homeopathy charities are known to dispense sugar pills to treat AIDS and the Ebola virus. Some of these groups are even promoted on the website of the World Homeopathy Awareness Organisation. In 2011, 1,700 people in thirty countries around the world took part in an international protest, each taking an ‘overdose’ of dozens of homeopathic pills to demonstrate that these worthless pills have no effect, and should not be sold as medicine. If only homeopathy is used, even relatively commonplace ailments can lead to severe consequences. Gloria Thomas was nine months old when her parents chose to treat her eczema exclusively with homeopathy. When she was finally admitted to hospital, she had developed sepsis, and died shortly after admission. Her parents’ confidence and faith in homeopathy ultimately led to this tragedy, and they were subsequently jailed for manslaughter. In 2006, a Newsnight investigation revealed that homeopaths told undercover reporters that homeopathic preparations could be used to prevent malaria – this advice was roundly condemned as dangerous and potentially life-threatening. Nevertheless, homeopaths still claim to treat malaria - the list of people harmed by choosing homeopathy instead of seeking out real medicine is continually growing. The Advertising Standards Authority has received over 150 complaints of false advertising and misleading claims made by homeopaths – homeopathic bodies seem unwilling or unable to stop their members making unsubstantiated claims.

how plastic saved the elephant
The age old game of billiards began when croquet players wanted to take their game inside and started playing on the table. As it was considered gauche to stand on the table, they took to hitting the balls with sticks and so the modern day games of snooker, pool and billiards were born. Cut to the 19th century and the manufacturers of billiard balls had a problem: The manufacturers of billiards equipment had a lot of trouble finding satisfactory balls. Most other materials of the time could not cut it. Rubber balls lacked the density and steel balls did not bounce right. the best balls came from elephants. and your average elephant could supply a whole six balls from the billiard grade ivory within their very teeth, while the rest of the carcass could be made into umbrella stands and the like. Useful stuff. But elephants became much much harder to find for some reason so the maker of billiard balls came up with a TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR PRIZE for those who invented a practical material for creating billiard balls. One enterprising inventor came up with the first ever industrial plastic NITROCELLULOSE. Yes, this miraculous substance had the right density, the right hardness, the right bounce, but failed to win the prize because they could set your pool hall on fire. But this new substance was staggeringly useful for other purposes as cinematic film, and the plastics industry had begun. Fast forward to 1907 when Leo Bakeland came up with the first synthetic plastic, BAKELITE. Strong, versatile, hard, and ideal for billiards balls, so long as you liked them yellowish. By the 1920s bakelite billiards balls stormed the market, being far far cheaper than their ivory alternatives. And by world war II, plastics became the MATERIAL OF THE FUTURE, turning ordinary crude oil into nylon, vinyl, epoxies and so forth for use our fabulous toys sporting equipment and industrial goods of today and beyond. So, as long as the oil lasts, our elephants are safe Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dangerouslytalented/689292777820360 Twitter: www.twitter.com/dangerouslytal

the science denial industry
Are you tired of being told what to do? Those guys in white coats all think they are so smart with their fancy white coats and degrees. Well when YOU get told what to do, we have the people who tell the guys who tell you what to do, where to go. The science denial industry. For over a hundred years, the science denial industry has been a mainstay of the effort to keep industry profitable, long after those industries have been proven to harm everybody else. But useful products are useful, and we all need our luminescent watchdials, our cloroflourocarbons, our DDT, our tobacco, our leaded fuels, and of course, where would we be without the wondermaterial asbestos. Look at that workers loading that asbestos ready to be installed into homes and kindergartens across the country. Those men would be out of work if not for the Science Denial industry. Imagine where they would be if they were not allowed to sell their asbestos? We can't have people not working, get back to work. Any problems you have can be worked out later. There's money to be made. KEEP THAT SMOKE FLOWING! THANK THE SCIENCE DENIAL INDUSTRY TODAY!

abbott v putin shirtfront match of the century
Due to recent Russian reluctance to investigate the cause of the recent MH17 crash resulting from the actions of Russian speaking separatists in the Ukrainian civil war, the Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, has threatened to "shirtfront" the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin. 'Australians were murdered ... I am going to shirt-front Mr Putin' Abbott's fighting words The PM promises to "shirt-front" Vladimir Putin when they meet at the G20 Leaders summit in Brisbane. Prime Minister Tony Abbott has set up a confrontation with Vladimir Putin, promising to ''shirt-front'' the Russian President when the pair meet at the G20 summit in Brisbane next month. "There will be a lot of tough conversations with Russia": Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Photo: "Australians were murdered by Russian-backed rebels in Ukraine when MH17 was shot down, and we are very unhappy about this''. ''we now demand that you [Russia] fully co-operate with the criminal investigation''. ''I'm going to shirt-front Mr Putin,'' he said. ''I am going to be saying to Mr Putin Australians were murdered.

Because some people thought my piece about RT (Russia Today) I did last week was a bit heavy handed, I thought I would do a piece on their main competition, American Cable News. These days, everybody is watching cable news. But where did it begin. It all begins in 1980 when studmuffin entrepeneur Ted Turner founds CNN, voiced by the voice of Darth Vader. They get straight into it, with 24 hour a day news coverage, and struck success with the successful explosion of the space shuttle challenger. Further success came when they discovered there was BIG ratings with covering little girls stuck down wells. Only second to ongoing wars. CNN did great business, so much so that Time Warner bought Ted Turner out, for several hundred million dollars and a seat on its board, then forced Ted Turner out of the board and took the whole thing for themselves. Then FOXnews and MSNBC came along. Both had very similar content early on, but FOX won that battle, because, as it was founded by Rupert Murdoch and Al-waleed bin Talal, it was by far the most American network, with lots and lots of leggy blondes and state of the art graphics. You never needed to know what they were actually saying to watch FOX, which was great because what they were saying could not otherwise be condisered news. Anyway, 500 million dollars later, FOX was dominant in cable news, things took a disturbing trend and MSNBC could not compete until Keith Olbermann started doing something revolutionary: telling the truth. MSNBC recovered a little but Olbermann was too much of a chandelier and moved back to covering sports. Meanwhile CNN was trying to be objective, which, for them, was treating both sides of the story as equal no matter who was lying, and struggles for viewers during the off weeks when Malaysia Airlines isn't crashing. The market was saturated at the retail end but the lucrative Business news market was not. So FOX and NBC decided to found FOXBusiness and CNBC, which was news specifically devoted to the rich and powerful. This proved highly successful with the ultrarich finally getting what they wanted after all these years. A news channel that showed everybody who is not rich just how much they suck. And that is the secret to AMERICAN CABLE NEWS!

explaining the chained cpi
Jump to: navigation, search The U.S C-CPI-U, or more commonly known, the Chained United States Consumer Price Index is a time series measure of price levels of consumer goods and services created by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as an alternative to the United States Consumer Price Index. This index is not currently employed by the United States in its programs, but is often discussed as a possible reform because it would likely reduce the federal deficit through a combination of spending cuts and increased revenues. Because consumer prices are used to determine things such as Cost of Living Adjustments, any reduction on the official estimate of inflation would reduce the federal deficit. If the official adjustment is greater than the inflation experienced by the recipients of the adjustment, they get an unearned benefit; if it's less than the real inflation, they are penalized. Proponents of the chained CPI include the Washington Post Editorial Board. the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, and the Heritage Foundation and it is included in various bipartisan commissions designed to reduce the deficit such as Simpson-Bowles, Domenici-Rivlin and the Gang of Six.Opponents of the measure contend that changing inflation metrics to the Chained CPI would cut programs like Social Security and Supplemental Security Income inappropriately. Opponents include the American Federation of Government Employees, the AFL-CIO and Social Security Works. Opponents claim that the current CPI devised for programs for the elderly understates their inflation by not taking into account different buying patterns for different age groups. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chained_CPI

whaling - science from the sea
Whaling has taken a huge toll on the whale ecosystem over the past 150 years. Since the 1986 moratorium on all commercial whaling, only Japan, Norway, Greenland and Iceland now harvest whales, for "scientific" purposes, but critics say that minimal scientific benefit is gained. This video investigates the scientific benefit of whaling. From the Sydney Morning Herald: International Court of Justice upholds Australia's bid to ban Japanese whaling in Antarctica The International Court of Justice has upheld Australia's bid to ban Japan's Antarctic whaling program. ICJ president Peter Tomka said the court concluded the scientific permits granted by Japan for its whaling program were not scientific research as defined under International Whaling Commission rules. Mr Tomka said in The Hague that the court was persuaded that Japan had conducted a program for logistical and political considerations, rather than scientific research. The court unanimously found it had jurisdiction to hear the case, and by 12 votes to four found that special permits granted by Japan in connection with the program, JARPA II, did not fall within the IWC convention. It therefore ordered that Japan revoke any scientific permit under JARPA II and refrain from granting any further permits. Prominent Australians welcomed the ICJ's decision.

the story of Russia Today
Back in the late 20th century, Russia was reeling from the fall of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. For over a decade, they stood helpless as Russia's reputation for Communism, snow, alcohol and poverty grew. Just like their alphabet, they had everything Rs backwards. 2005 Moscow, and Russia Today is launched. A brand new news outlet, based on the old Pravda tradition of transparency, accuracy and independence. Fearlessly researching the facts, doing serious hard journalism, then saying whatever the Kremlin wants them to say, regardless of what the American government and corporations think, and regardless of the actual facts. Showing Russia and our glorious leader Vladimir Putin in a never more true light Russia Today remains at the Vanguard of serious journalism, where you expect the hard news. Remember, you can't spell Hard News without RT.
