Cloning Animals For Food

Cloned Livestock Poised To Receive FDA Clearance -

This has to be one of the most unbelievable stories I have ever read. I've always thought of cloning as a means to produce healthy organs for transplant cases. Not for endless supplies of food:
After more than six years of wrestling with the question of whether meat and milk from them are safe to eat, the Food and Drug Administration is expected to declare as early as next week that they are.
Think about it, McDonald's will never run out of food. Just as long as they keep cloning Bessie, they can keep mass producing Big Macs.
"Most consumers do not find this appealing," says Marguerite Copel, vice president of corporate communications at Dean Foods Co., one of the nation's largest milk producers, which says it won't sell any milk from cloned animals.
Downright disgusting is more like it. I am physically sick thinking of these cloning factory slaughterhouses, and hey, they don't need to worry about PETA or ethical treatment either, because the clone was never supposed to be alive anyway.

Hacked GMail Filters

If you, like I do, use GMail, then you need to do yourself a favor and check your filters. There was a vulnerability, which has since been fixed, that would allow a user to add a filter to your GMail account if a user visited a malicious website while logged into their GMail account. In this case, a filter was created to forward all e-mail from this users domain host to an account for the purpose of stealing his domain, which the hacker successfully did and then held his domain for ransom.
WARNING: Google’s GMail security failure leaves my business sabotaged
Now my domain name was being held to ransom, and the hacker was taunting me. What I had spent more than a year building into a sound marketing plan had been severed at the knees.
As I said, the vulnerability has been fixed, however, if the filter already exists in your account, then e-mail could still be leaving your GMail account without your knowledge. Do yourself a favor and check your filters today.

Pretty Big Story

A couple of mornings ago, as I was listenening to the radio in the morning, I was affronted by what is wrong with society. Yes, driving in my car, I realized where everything that is wrong with human nature stems from. One of the morning dumb jockies that theElderSon likes to listen to as I drive him to school, was doing her daily impersonation of a news reporter. In her bit, she broke down news of the wildfires that are raging in Southern California, and she described the tragedy that is currently happening as a "Pretty Big Story".

A story? That is the number one problem with this country, everything is just a story. I would like to go on record to correct the dimb jockey and call her "story" what it really is. A Tragedy.

Just for the record, a story is a piece of fiction written by an author meant to amuse or entertain in one way or another. The word story most likely started being used by the ahole media to unhumanize the event in order to report it. Over time, the worse the tragedy was, the better the "story" is. But let's not forget that what is happening in Southern California is not a story...It is really happening. There really are people that have had to evacuate their homes, leaving all their possessions behind, only to have everything they own burnt to nothing. It's not just a "Pretty Big Story". No you idiot, it's so much more.
