Play him off Keyboard Cat – RIP Steve Jobs

6 Oct
Keyboard cat with moon in background, Steve jobs holding iphone and smiling

Play him off, Keyboard Cat

I don’t think it was a coincidence that Steve Jobs died the day after the keynote. Sometimes the will to stay alive is very powerful.

From the Wikipedia entry on Charles Schultz:

Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip died almost immediately before the last Peanuts strip to retire the series was published.

“Peanuts ran for nearly 50 years, almost without interruption. During the life of the strip, Schulz took only one vacation, a five-week break in late 1997 to celebrate his 75th birthday; reruns of the strip ran during his vacation. At its peak, Peanuts appeared in more than 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries. Schulz stated that his routine every morning consisted of eating a jelly donut and sitting down to write the day’s strip.

In a December 1999 interview, holding back tears, he recounted the moment when he signed the panel of his final strip, saying, “All of a sudden I thought, ‘You know, that poor, poor kid, he never even got to kick the football. What a dirty trick — he never had a chance to kick the football!’”

Charles Schulz died in his sleep at home around 9:45 p.m. on February 12, 2000. The last original Peanuts strip was published the very next day, on Sunday, February 13, 2000, just hours after his death the night before.”

One of the most cool, bizarre things I have ever seen. This guy got into North Korea as a tourist and made a documentary about North Korea.

“Unfortunately you were given wrong information as was the public,” McAllister wrote in the e-mail “All I have to say to you is Philip is a beautiful person inside and out and could not hurt a fly! A police officer in Boston (or many) is trying to make big bucks by selling this false story to the TV stations. What else is new?? Philip is an intelligent man who is just trying to life his life so if you could leave us alone we would greatly appreciate it. We expect to marry in August and share and wonderful, meaningful life together.”

When most people adopt an animal it is an abandoned cat, dog or even ferret but not Gary Zammit.

He nursed a young fox cub back to health – and even fed it using a baby’s bottle – after he discovered the creature dying after being hit by a car.

In fact he gave it so much tender loving care, including washing its fur and trimming its nails, that Tod the fox now lives with Gary in his family home.

Niels Bohr, Electrons, and FUCK

28 May

I was reading a fascinating book entitled ‘Quantum Legacy: The Discovery That Changed Our Universe‘ by Barry R. Parker. It details the history of the discovery of Quantum Physics from the discovery of the Atom, to the various atomic models proposed by physicists to the exploration of what exactly, light IS. What is everything made of? What is behind chemical reactions? What causes atoms to bond to one another?

In the middle of the chapter detailing the life of Niels Bohr I came across this:

Niels Bohr

The word FUCK written in large letters directly over an otherwise useful and interesting, and previously decidedly unvulgar diagram detailing Bohr’s atomic model, complete with the various energy levels of electrons. Now I am pleased that an obviously mischief-minded youth actually picked up a book about such a weighty topic as Quantum Mechanics, let alone visited a public library at all. At least he glanced at this important diagram as evidenced by his taking time to write something on that page. Who knows if he one day grows up and advances our understanding of the universe. Doubtful, but possible.

Sun Tzu’s Art of War

27 May

I finally got around to reading Sun Tzu’s (soon-tsu) “Art of War”. It had been on my to-do list for quite some time. I was very impressed with his general strategy. It was very compassionate and full of empathy and concern for your fellow man, even the enemy. Here are some quick basic facts about this historic book for those of you unfamiliar with it:

Sun Tzu's Art of War on bamboo

Basic facts about Sun Tzu’s Art of War

  • Written during the 6th century BC
  • Sun Tzu was about 30 when he wrote it
  • Sun is a honorary title, meaning Master.
  • First english translation was not published until 1905
  • First accurate, complete copy of the ‘Art of War’ was not discovered until the 1970’s

Summary of what the ‘Art of War’ says

  • There are five factors in combat, whoever has the most advantages in these five factors is sure to win –

    • The Way – Who has the most compelling cause?
    • Heaven – Weather / General environment
    • Ground – Terrain
    • General – Leadership
    • Law – Discipline
  • There are Five Faults that lead to the capture or defeat of a General –
    • A general who is moral can be shamed
    • A general who is cowardly can be captured
    • A general who is quick-tempered can be insulted
    • A general who is reckless will be destroyed
    • A general who is concerned will not expose his men to danger
  • There are only two types of attack
    • Conventional attacks – always start a battle with this
    • Unconventional attacks – always end a battle with thus
  • In order of best to worst, it is best to –
    • Attack the enemies plans
    • Attack the enemies alliances
    • Attack the enemies Armies
    • The worst is to attack a walled city
  • Your goal in battle is NOT to destroy the enemy and his cities, your goal in battle is to render the enemy harmless.
  • It is always better to convert the enemy soldiers and people to your side than to destroy them
  • You must always, always, always have and use spies, especially double spies. You must treat your spies better than anyone else, even generals and high officials.
  • Never do battle on the enemies territory (one of the five factors, ground) without local guides. Even with local guides your enemy will have an enormous advantage. It is better to draw the enemy out by attacking anything he values the most. It is always better to do battle on the ground you choose than on the ground the enemy chooses.
  • Always be Formless. Never let the enemy see your full strength. If you are strong appear weak. If you are brave appear cowardly. If you are far appear near. If you are near appear far.
  • It is the height of excellence to win a battle without actually resorting to armed conflict with death and destruction. "the angry will be calm again, the sad will be happy again, but the dead cannot be brought back to live and that which is destroyed can never return the way it once was"
  • You should place your men as much as possible in high danger during an armed battle, men faced with certain death fight the hardest and bravest. This is why one of the five faults that leads to defeat in a General is concern.

Judging by all of this, it is easy to see why, for example, Hitler lost World War II. Hitler did the mistake of attacking a walled city, Russia/Stalingrad, on the enemy ground. Russia had the advantage in Ground, Heaven (winter weather they were used to and prepared for), The Way (they were defending their homeland and their families), and Law (very strict discipline) . Germany only had the advantage only in General, as they had experienced officers.

Sun Tzu basically advocated doing everything possible to make sure the enemy soldiers lost the will to fight. German soldiers freezing to death in the harsh Russian winter to take a country they personally, had little interest in defeating and occupying certainly made for Soldiers less willing to fight than their Russian enemy.

All of this is directly opposite to the idea I always had in my head that the best way to win a war is brute merciless force. Sure, you can win this way, but Sun Tzu felt it was far better in terms of financial and human cost to end a war with as little bloodshed as possible.

Below is my Mod list. These mods really made the game way better! You need Oblivion Mod Manager and Oblivion Script Extender to get these to work.

My list of Oblivion Mods

Aesthetic only

Qarl’s Texture Pack III
Huge download, close to 2 gigs. It re-skins the entire world and makes it look AMAZING. You need a fast PC to even attempt this new texture pack. But it’s an AMAZING difference.
Fastest download I could find, requires fileplanet registration

Cats and Rats
adds cute kitties and rats all over the world. I like the rats especially because now the dungeons all have real-sized rats as a sort of added decoration, makes the dungeons seem more real. The cats chase the rats if they see them! it’s funny.

Natural Environments
Adds lots of cool new weather patterns, gives you lots of nice new skies, rainbows..lots of awesome stuff. I especially like the birds and insects added to the environments.

Gameplay Changes

Deadly Reflex
This is a BAD-ASS MOD. It makes combat way more exciting. For one, you cant just hold your shield up anymore…you have to time the shield with the enemy attack, makes for much more exciting combat. Also, you can decapitate people..the blood and gore effects are amazing. You can shoot them in the lung with an arrow and watch them gasp for breath, or slice off their hands Count Dooku style and watch them bleed to death. You can bash them with your shield to knock them back, and best of all fight from your horse. It adds lots of cool combat moves depending on your athletic skill, like flips and stuff. A VERY VERY good mod. Search for videos of this mod on youtube..it’s is SO awesome to cut a NPC head right off or bash their skull in. You can even take the shards of skull and brain as ingredients.
Download Deadly Reflex

Supreme Magika
This mod revamps the magic system, making it more powerful and fun, but not TOO powerful. It allows you to summon up to five creatures if your level is high enough, adds cool spells like levitation. If you combine this with Deadly Reflex, some of your spells will cause cool gore effects, like freezing them solid (then you break them) or turning them into a scorched corpse.
Download Supreme Magika

Hilarity
Adds hilarious spells to the game, like OFF WITH THEIR PANTS (makes pants dissapear), or FREE PONY! (gives them fre pony, except it appears 50 feet over their head and hurtles toward them for a very unpleasant present.), or SHEEP! (turns them into a sheep, forever)

South Beach Guide – Winter Music Conference

4 Mar

bboyneko's guide to south beach

Well..it’s that time again..time for Spring Break and of course the Winter Music Conference. (for that entire week, it’s possibly the largest concentration of controlled substances on planet earth) As a veteran of Miami in general (having lived there for a few years) and of the WMC, I will now allow you to partake of my wisdom before venturing to South Beach so you know all the insider tips and tricks and advice and stuff.

Arriving in South Beach

South Beach Miami
The first thing you’ll notice when you arrive at South Beach is how BEAUTIFUL it is..well..ok actually you’ll notice how amazingly run-down it is. Every building looks on the verge of collapse, and every hotel charges $500 a night if you’re lucky. The nicer hotels are of course very nice on the inside, but everything pretty much looks like this on the outside. And this, being a tropical Caribbean location, is literally crawling with cockroaches the size of Cuban refugee rafts. The only thing larger and more omnipresent than the cockroaches is the lizards, some who could probably take on Godzilla in a fair fight. I kid you not some of the iguana you see just hanging out in trees are big enough to carry off a toddler, and the worst part is these fuckers swim!!! They are IN THE WATER with you..you’ll be walking along the ocean and see some gigantic, scaly monstrosity leap off a tree into the water, disappearing beneath the azure waves.

https://i2.wp.com/kolobok.us/smiles/big_standart/shok.gif‘WTF WAS THAT!?’ you’ll say in horror. And someone will reply, likely in Spanish, ‘Oh it’s just the local iguanas’. That’s another thing, don’t venture more then 50 feet outside of South Beach unless you speak spanish.

Here is an actual photo I took of a beautiful South Beach street:

https://i1.wp.com/www.gunkatta.com/images/miami2/southbeachbeauty.jpg

Clubbing in South Beach

South Beach Club

This is what your average south beach club looks like. It is run-down, decaying, possibly condemned. And outside is a very very large man in a suit standing by the velvet ropes.https://i0.wp.com/www.kolobok.us/smiles/remake/bb2.gif Unless you arrived at 7pm or 7am, there will be a line long enough to justify chartering a plane to reach the end of. Many people hear about how well-dressed you have to be to enter these velvet-locked exclusive clubs. I got into all of them in 2 seconds, literally by just walking up to the front of the line and without a word the gigantic man allowed me to go in. Why? Because I was dressed right. Here is how NOT to dress to get into a South Beach club:

Casually Dressed

Got it? Ok good…Here is how you should dress to get into a South Beach club:

Dressed Up

Basically, have babe will travel. All they are looking for is for a guy to have at least two women, or if there is only one woman she better be way hot. But really, i was astonished at what Floridians consider ‘dressed up’. I kid you not, jeans and a t-shirt is dressed-up to them. Leave the blazer at home, even the button-up shirt. You’ll be over-dressed. It might have something to do with the 300 degree heat. If you don’t have two super hot babes then prepare for a ridiculous wait…the bouncers literally hold up the line for no reason at all. It just makes their club look cool. If they decide to let you in, cough up a $40 cover. Once in prepare for all the fun:

Inside a club

weeee! That photo is actual size. All the clubs are TINY..about the size of a broom closet. All are layed out identically, namely about 10-15 tables all arranged in the center, no dance floor, and only one bar. Prepare to pay literally $20 for a drink. Also, Floridians enjoy tossing napkins into the air for no reason whatsoever. It will be raining napkins constantly. And they think it’s really cool to have bottles delivered to their table with a sprinkler fireworks on top of it. And then of course, they celebrate the fact they just got their $400 bottle of smirnoff delivered to the table with a $2 firework by tossing napkins into the air. Weeee! napkins!

Since there is no dance floor the only place to dance is on the bars. And the only one allowed up there is girls. So if you’re a guy looking to dance, forget about it. Good luck attempting to order your $18 screwdriver while digging through miles of heavily sun-damaged skin.

And don’t bother jotting down the name of clubs to recommend to friends. Clubs change hourly in South Beach. At 10pm one day it will be Mansion, then 3 hours later the club will change ownership and it is now Crobar, etc etc.

Exploring Miami

Beautiful Miami

Sunny Miami! Once you tire of the clubs rent a car and explore the beautiful city of Miami, Flordia. Ah! Feels like a 3rd-world country. Unless you are in the general vicinity of Brickell Ave, everything feels like it’s under the brutal rule of a tyrannical dictator. Every neighborhood is more depressing than the next. If you thought South Beach looked run-down, wait till you visit the rest of Miami. Visit just north of Miami beach for some suicide-inducing https://i2.wp.com/www.kolobok.us/smiles/madhouse/suicide.gifviews of poverty on a scale seen only in Sally Struthers infomericals.
https://i1.wp.com/www.kolobok.us/smiles/artists/laie/Laie_28.gif

Get ready for fun driving! Miami has some of the most insane drivers on planet earth. If you spend any measure of time on a highway during rush hour get ready to shave about 10 years off your life on sheer fright alone. Nothing except possibly, years of experience as a NASCAR driver can prepare you for the experience.

And I hope you brought your bullet-proof vests!https://i1.wp.com/www.kolobok.us/smiles/madhouse/hunter.gif Florida has some of the most relaxed gun laws in the United States..just about everyone is armed. This is good and bad. It’s good in that it has brought a bit of calm into the extremely violent city of Miami since, with everyone armed, it’s riskier for criminals to target people at random or conduct home invasions. It’s bad in that the violent criminals know all you tourists probably will NOT be armed, and so target you. It got so bad, that I am not kidding, Florida asked all rental car agencies to remove markings from their rental cars..as carjackers and other criminals were specifically targeting the rental cars knowing the tourists would be easy pickings.

Don’t forget to visit the Keys! every island is more boring than the next, and the small-town cops have nothing better to do than pull over tourists in a hurry to visit key west just to say they’ve been there. It’s a 2-lane road the entire way down, with nothing to see except palm trees and tourist traps and wal-marts.

Miami, the town that keeps the roof blazin’!

Prosopagnosia Phun

14 Jan

First let me say I have Prosopagnosia, namely, the inability to recognize people by their facial structure.

I was watching ‘The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ last night, as I am a big fan of the Terminator franchise. I watched the entire thing for an hour, and only at the VERY end, approximately 10 minutes before it ended I recognized Summer Glau as the same girl from the movie Serenity. How? Not her facial structure, of course. By a kick! She threw a high kick at the end of the episode and it immediately registered in my brain that this is the same girl. It’s astonishing to me sometimes how acute my ability to recognize people by how they move rather than what they look like.

We didn’t learn our lesson from the Salem Witch trails

5 Nov

DNA could clear ‘Satanic’ triple murder teenagers
After 15 years, the verdict in case that shocked America is denounced as a travesty of justice

The horrific crime shocked a nation. Three young boys, cub scouts, were tied up, murdered and their naked bodies dumped in a drainage ditch.

Now evidence, including DNA samples, has emerged to suggest the real killers are still at large and that three innocent men have been behind bars for almost 15 years. ‘No reasonable juror would convict… knowing what we know today,’ said defense lawyer Dennis Riordan.

Wikipedia Article about the ‘West Memphis 3’

In 2007, DNA collected from the crime scene was tested. None was found to match DNA from Echols, Baldwin, Misskelley nor John Mark Byers. In addition, a hair from Terry Hobbs, stepfather to Stevie Branch, was found tied into the knots used to bind the victims

I bet the stepfather did it. This reminds me of another witch hunt fueled by paranoid, emotional fanatical delusion by the public, who ignored logic and facts and instead embraced their own demon-haunted superstitious fears: The McMartin Preschool incident.

Article from Wikipedia about the McMartin Preschool witch trail

In a nutshell: A California daycare was charged with sexual assault mainly from the testimony of children from the school, who described elaborate tunnels under the daycare, strange satanic rituals and bizarre balloon rides. All turned out to be totally made up. (they said they saw flying witches, that should have maybe clued off the prosecutors) That didn’t stop the state from charging the owners with over 200 charges of child abuse. Some of the owners stayed in jail 5 years, with no charges.

I am constantly amazed at the ridiculous levels of hysteria, mass delusion, and superstitious idiocy of the public. No one cares about facts or logic, only their own, choking, blinding emotional fears.

WE3 – amazing graphic novel, a must read

24 Sep

This is like 3 years old but I only found out about it yesterday:

https://i2.wp.com/www.newsarama.com/Vertigo/pic_lrgwe31cvr.jpg

https://i0.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/49/We3.jpg

https://i1.wp.com/ec1.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/ciu/b5/62/5ae192c008a0564736274010.L.jpg

http://www.dccomics.com/graphic_novels/?gn=3717

WE3 tells the unforgettable story of three innocent pets — a dog, a cat and a rabbit — who have been converted into deadly cyborgs by a sinister military weapons program.

With nervous systems amplified to match their terrifying mechanical exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 have the firepower of a battalion between them. But they are just the program’s prototypes, and now that their testing is complete they’re slated to be permanently “de-commissioned” — until they seize their one chance to make a desperate run for freedom.

Relentlessly pursued by their makers, the WE3 team must navigate a frightening and confusing world where their instincts and heightened abilities make them as much a threat as those hunting them — but a world, nonetheless, in which somewhere there is something called “home.”

It’s very gory, very very well-written, and very good. I thought it was kinda tongue in cheek funny (bionic killer bunny? please!) but turned out to be quite serious.

Apparently they will make a movie based on this concept, it will be like Short Circuit meets The Incredible Journey. Tears will be shed.

Immigration Laws and Dick Lamm

26 Jul

So I got this chain mail:

The Overthrow of our Nation

Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this; it ought to scare the hell out of you!

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia,” explaining how immigration – both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, “If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time.

Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'”

“Here is how they do it,” Lamm said: “First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country.”

History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.” Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.”.

Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, “Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, “We could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.”

Lamm said, “I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.”

“Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.”

“My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.”

“My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common Language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. “E. Pluribus Unum” –From many, one.

In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.”

“Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said,. “Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’s book “Mexifornia.” His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America. deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.

Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’

American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America – take note of California and other states – to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast.

It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream.

*sigh*

Me and My family immigrated to the US from Colombia around 1984, stayed illegally but then gained legal status and eventually citizenship in 1997.

We grew up super dirt poor, living off Government butter and government milk, on food stamps etc.

Now me and older brother combined pay over $70,000 in taxes annually.

The problem is everyone assumes people who are poor or disadvantaged because of a language WANT to stay that way and blame everyone else for their problems.

The fact is, no sane person enjoys being in poverty, living off hand-outs etc. And no sane person enjoys being isolated because of a language barrier. Every hispanic immigrant I know is a very hard, dedicated and honest worker, always trying to improve their english.

Their home country is shit balls, so they come here for a better chance. Eventually many become like me and my older brother, becoming legal citizens and giving back to the country that helped us succeed in huge ways. Many go on to serve in the military as well.

The whole “immigration problem” is pure and simple, xenophobic paranoid delusion, fueled by bigotry, hatred and racism. It’s no coincidence that Dick Lamm’s speech resembled a sermon given at a church rather than a logical argument for reasonable immigration policies and laws.

It’s an appeal to emotion rather than logic, and one must always be wary of anyone in power using emotional basis’ for arguing a point rather than those grounded on facts, logic, and reason.

AIDS / HIV: Not a big deal

16 Jul

I never understood why AIDS/HIV gets so much attention when barely anyone dies from it:

Heart disease Annual deaths: 654,092 (#1 killer in US)
Septicemia annual deaths: 33,464
AIDS annual deaths: 12,995

Septicemia cases over twice as many annual deaths than HIV..where is the Septicemia poem? Septicemia marches? Septicemia lapels?
