Sunday Shocker: Lizard People In Our Midst

You cannot deny it.

The signs are everywhere.

Our lizard overlords are slipping. No longer perfectly concealed as people of power and influence, more and more REAL HUMANS are seeing the terrible truth.

The alien lizard people are here and they are in charge.

Despite so-called “denials” from, among others, the so-called “John Key, ” Prime Minister of New Zealand, we know the TRUTH.

“To the best of my knowledge, no. Having been asked that question directly, I’ve taken the unusual step of not only seeing a doctor but a vet, and both have confirmed I’m not a reptile,” a smiling Mr Key said today. “So I’m certainly not a reptile. I’ve never been in a spaceship, never been in outer space, and my tongue’s not overly long either.”

Oh “he” thinks he’s so cute, doesn’t he. But we know the TRUTH!!!!

We’ve known since 1988 and the release of vaunted freedom fighter Nada could see the aliens with special sunglasses, but we aren't that lucky. We have to discover the TRUTH on our own.John Carpenter’s “movie” They Live, A thinly veiled allegory about a secret race of aliens taking over the world. Nada, the character played by “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, could see the aliens with the aid of special sunglasses.

We don’t have that luxury in our never-ending quest to expose the Alien Lizard Men bent on conquest. We can only rely on the TRUTH to set us free!

And the TRUTH has been set free: Mr. Piper recently tweeted the TRUTH that

They Live is a documentary!!

Nada once said: “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. . . and I’m all out of bubblegum!”

You are on notice, Alien Lizard Overlords! We Earthicans are out of bubblegum! And your are OUT OF TIME!

No, I’m not bored. Why do you ask?

Sunday Skillz: Human-Powered Helicopter

Human-powered flight has been a dream for mankind as long as there have been minds capable of looking up and watching with envy as the birds prowled our skies.

I dare any of you dudes to tell me truly that you have never dreamed about flying, on your own, just the wind and your body. You can’t. It’s an almost universal (to humanity at least) dream of freedom.

Witness wingsuits, hang gliding and parachuting. Those, however, are all variations on slowing your fall so you don’t squash when you meet the ground. It’s not true human-powered flight.

This, however, is.

How awesome is that? Let’s let a story from Popular Mechanics do the talking for a bit.

A quixotic Kickstarter-funded project has won the Sikorsky Prize, one of the most elusive goals in aviation, by keeping a human powered helicopter aloft for more than a minute. Aerovelo, an aeronautical engineering startup founded by Canadians Todd Reichert and Cameron Robertson, announced this morning that the Federation d’Aviation Intenationale (FAI)—the governing body of international aeronautical prizes—has certified a flight that Reichert piloted on June 13 as having met the qualifications for the $250,000 prize. 

The rules of the American Helicopter Society Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Challenge, established in 1980, specify that the craft must fly for 60 seconds, must rise to an altitude of at least 3 meters (about 10 feet), and must remain within a horizontal area no bigger than 10 meters by 10 meters (33 feet by 33 feet). The actual flight, completed at an indoor soccer stadium near Toronto, lasted 64 seconds and reached a maximum altitude of 3.3 meters. 

This is just amazing, dudes. I mean, a bunch of crazy people had a really dumb idea, found enough people to fund them, and then went and proved the idea wasn’t so dumb at all.

The Aerovelo folks had the massive, indoor facility for five days to perform their testing. On the last of those five days, they’d used up almost all their time. They had, maybe, 10 minutes left before they had to vacate the space. And then — wam — they met the prize conditions.

All right, dudes! Let’s hear it for the Aerovelo people, brave dudes and dudettes with a crazy idea. So crazy — say it with me — it just might work. And it did.

Independence Day: Library For All

Happy Independence Day, my fellow Americans.

Normally, I’d take this as a day off so I could be outside blowing stuff up with my young dudes. And, realistically, I will be doing that. However, I wanted to talk first a little about a different kind of independence.

The independence that knowledge brings, and how our modern world can bring itself to the doorstep of anyone. You can help educate the world. You know I’m a huge believer in the healing power of education. I believe, and science will back me up on this, that better education can reduce crime rates, foster a better sense of self, inspire self-confidence, create jobs, raise people out of poverty. All of that.

And with out flourishing market for tablets and e-readers, we have the capability to bring that education to anywhere in the world. No longer would we have to cart a two-ton set of Encyclopedia Britannica around, only to watch the pages moulder in the heat and humidity. We can bring that entire set, plus every single other book in the Library of Congress, on a single e-reader.

The world’s knowledge in the palm of your hand.

Which is why I’m talking to you today about Library for All: A digital library for the developing world, which is a Kickstarter project, which still is short of its goal, that is designed to bring a library of world knowledge to the very poorest people, those most in need of the ameliorating effects of education.

From the project designers: We are harnessing the power of technology, and mobile phone networks found across the developing world, to give low-cost access to a digital library of relevant content. 

The library brings together content from Open Source providers and top global publishers. It is designed for low-bandwidth environments through the use of a local network topology. The platform is designed to be device agnostic. That means it can be accessed via mobile phones, e-readers or even low-cost tablets.

This is a worthy effort here, dudes. It NEEDS your support. Even a few dollars, every few dollars helps. The fine folks running this program have only a little more than 8 days left to make their funding goal. They’re still short. The even better news is that donating to Library For All is tax deductible. It can actually help you, when you help others.

On this Independence Day for America, why not give a little of yourself to support the independence of the rest of the world. Education is something worth fighting for. Education is something that can make fighting itself a relic of the past.

Education is the pathway to a better future. Donate. Become a backer. It’s not hard. Ten minutes, tops. That’s all it takes to help spread the independence we so treasure to others around the world.

Independence, freedom, can never be given to someone. It must be earned. Help them earn their freedom, to earn independence from poverty and oppression.
