Donald Trump’s Nuclear Uncle. In September, 1936, a reporter for the Associated Press watched the unveiling of a new kind of X-ray machine, said to be able to generate a million volts of power.

Donald Trump’s Nuclear Uncle

The scientist operating the device was John G. Trump, a professor of engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Trump was working the controls and explaining how high-speed electrons ran along a porcelain tube to a “water-cooled gold target,” when suddenly “two of the high-voltage sparks hit him squarely on the nose.” And yet, according to the A.P. account, the direct strike caused him only “slight discomfort.” Lair of the Bastard: ONE HUNDRED NATZY SCALPS.

Club, generally a great source of pop culture news with an occasional smartass twist (a natural consequence of being the rare non-satirical entity owned by The Onion), published an article titled "Metal music still has an unaddressed Nazi problem". It's been making the rounds in my internetical circles for obvious reasons, mainly being that I'm a metalhead who writes and talks about metal all the time and therefore associates with several likeminded people, and it's just gotten me thinking about a couple of things. So I figured I should impart some of my unearned and unwanted wisdom upon y'all, because there's a lot to address in that article, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna lose my way and get introspective as it goes (I don't outline anything before I write it, sue me).

The Amazon forest is the result of an 8,000-year experiment. Though the Amazon forest may appear wild and uncharted, a new comprehensive study has revealed that it's actually the result of some of humanity's earliest experiments with farming.

The Amazon forest is the result of an 8,000-year experiment

People have been living in the Amazon for more than 10,000 years, building some of the greatest civilizations of the ancient world. They also dramatically changed the Amazon forest in ways that are still obvious today. Wageningen University environmental science researcher Carolina Levis and a large international team of ecologists and archaeologists contributed to a study for Science that is bound to transform our view of the Amazon. "People arrived in the Amazon at least 10,000 years ago, and they started to use the species that were there. And more than 8,000 years ago, they selected some individuals with specific phenotypes that are useful for humans,” Levis told the Atlantic's Robinson Meyer.

Craig Enright in the hopes of alleviating the pain associated with Lilly's chronic migraine headaches, which he had been suffering like clockwork — every 18 hours — for most of his often-adventurous life. Lilly, at the time, was at Esalen Institute conducting seminars when one of these massive migraines hit him. In situations such as these, Lilly withdrew into privacy, to suffer alone through the many endless hours of severe discomfort.

Dark ages often lead to the downfall of civilizations. The reasons for the downfalls of civilizations have however often seemed enigmatic to mainstream historians, who have not been able to understand what causes them. For example, even when it comes to explaining the downfall of the Roman Empire, which after all we have fairly detailed records of, there is no consensus of what caused this.

Symptoms of the decline may often be identified, but not what caused these symptoms to appear in the first place. Similarly, the so-called disappearance of the Mayan culture has seemed inexplicable to archeologists. Facta non Verba: How to Own Your Enemies – INCERTO – Medium.

By Ray Grasse Imagine the world as it might appear from the perspective of an ant wandering on-stage during a performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream. All around you there unfolds a great drama, replete with exotic colors, sounds, and complex happenings; yet because of your limited perspective, the meaning of it all escapes you. You can’t comprehend the multi-layered significance of this drama, nor grasp how these diverse elements fit into the greater unfolding narrative being played out over several acts.

Only by understanding that larger context can you truly see how those transitory events are integral facets of a broader pattern of meaning, a greater story. In a way, our own predicament is rather like that. Augoeides: Let's Try That Again... The Hex Appeal of Activism – Mat Auryn. The fight to preserve King Records' legacy.
