A New Source Of CO2

This Sunday I have been waiting for MoMo to give up on that damn pesky squirrel so I thought I would write a post or maybe two….

Most of us know that CO2 is a atmosphere destructor and we have many sources that will need to be controlled it we are to survive (that is my opinion and I doubt if those deniers will agree)

The week after T/S Barry and all has returned to normal…..over 100 temp humidity around 90%…..makes A/C a welcome necessity.

Enough bitching about Summer in the South…..

I read an article that points to a large source of CO2….and it is on-line…..

Our porn-viewing habits are leaving a filthy footprint on the planet.

Video streaming accounts for around 60 percent of all data flow online, which means it also accounts for over 300 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year. Since almost a third of streamed video content is pornography, online porn pumps out around 100 million tons of carbon dioxide each year, more than the annual output of Israel. 

These figures come from a new report by The Shift Project, a French think tank that aims to limit climate change and our dependence on fossil fuels. In light of their findings, they argue that our digital consumption should be considered when looking at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, just as driving gas-guzzling cars and eating loads of red meat are. They also call on policymakers and architects of the digital space to consider the impacts of online services when designing digital technologies.

Here is another way for zealots to attack porn…..but that would mean they would have to think for themselves….something I feel they are not capable of doing.

As long as I am on the topic of CO2……we are always looking for a way to generate electricity that does not screw up the air quality…..and CO2 is a major contributor to air pollution…..but what if we could use it to generate electricity?

The world is quickly realizing it may need to actively pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere to stave off the ill effects of climate change. Scientists and engineers have proposed various techniques, but most would be extremely expensive—without generating any revenue. No one wants to foot the bill.

One method explored in the past decade might now be a step closer to becoming practical, as a result of a new computer simulation study. The process would involve pumping airborne CO2 down into methane hydrates—large deposits of icy water and methane right under the seafloor, beneath water 500 to 1,000 feet deep—where the gas would be permanently stored, or sequestered. The incoming CO2 would push out the methane, which would be piped to the surface and burned to generate electricity, to power the sequestration operation or to bring in revenue to pay for it.

Just a few thoughts for a Sunday…..

“Lego Ergo Scribo”

Closing Thought–05Jul19

Child porn is nothing to sneeze at….and when it is found floating around our national defense hub , the Pentagon, is even sicker.

Defense Department computers are among the top distributors of child pornography. An untold number of Department of Defense (DOD) employees and contractors have subscriptions to child pornography websites, and the problem is apparently so pervasive it requires new technical solutions to address it.

“Hundreds of DoD-affiliated individuals” were recently identified as suspects in child pornography cases, according to an investigation by the Defense Criminal Investigative Service.

So far, authorities have only looked into about 20 percent of these cases. But already, they’ve found “several” individuals “using their government devices to download or share said pornographic material.”

 
How sick is that?
 
Surely these people have more important things to do than to spend time on porn, child porn.
If they have that much time on their hands maybe it is time to clean house and find people that are not so goddamn perverted.
 
Just saying.

Closing Thought–19Jul18

Hey let’s talk about the Nobel Peace Prize.  There is a steady beat of those that think Our Dear Leader should get the Peace Prize because of the NK meeting and then the Russian meeting……

No I am not going to go off on some rant about why Trump does not deserve the prize…though I can see why you might think that…..nope this post is about the co-founder of a youth charity who was nominated for the prize in 2015……..

The 22-year-old co-founder of a charity that advocates for victims of sexual violence was arrested on Tuesday in New York for possession of child pornography and for working to arrange sexual encounters with children as young as two years old. Joel Davis — who helped found Youth to End Sexual Violence, and chaired the UN’s International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict — has been charged with several counts, including attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, after exchanging messages with undercover federal agents earlier this month.

During those text message exchanges, Davis had told undercover law enforcement officers that he was sexually interested in children of all ages, including infants, and had sent the officers explicit photographs of infants and toddlers. Some of the photos showed the minors engaged in sexual activity with adults.

Davis, who had previously been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2015 and had served as the U.S.’ Youth Ambassador on Sexual Violence in Conflict, also told the officers of his intention to engage in sexual activities with an undercover officer’s nine-year-old daughter and the two-year-old daughter of the officer’s girlfriend. He is alleged to have gone into great detail about the sexual activities he wished to perform with the children.

What is it about sports doctors and sexual abuse?  This type of thing is becoming all too common in our society…..I mean look at the GOP representative that is involved in a sexual abuse case

What can I say…..if he is a perv then he needs to be fried….you may interpret that any way you like…..any money made off the nomination should be returned and then a hefty fine for being a perv……

It’s “Stormy” Weather

We have a full shutdown of the government…..so let’s talk…..SEX.

Back in the 80’s a candidate had a blond sit on his knee and he dropped out of politics…..in the 90’s we had a prez that got a BJ and was impeached….in the 2000’s a candidate had an affair and almost went to jail….and in 2016 we have a prez that is proud of grabbing women by the genitals and he is still popular….my my how times change.

And our prez may have paid a porn star for her silence over an affair….

It’s not every day that the New York Times reports on an In Touch article about a porn star, but here we are. In a follow-up to last week’s Wall Street Journal article that alleged an adult film actress was paid $130,000 in 2016 to stay mum on a consensual sexual encounter with a then-married Donald Trump in 2006 comes the In Touch article, published Wednesday. It is based on a 2011 interview with Stephanie Clifford, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, and describes her meeting Trump at a 2006 golf tournament and having “textbook generic” sex that night. Among the more salacious details: that the encounter allegedly happened four months after Melania Trump gave birth, and that Trump told Clifford she was beautiful “like his daughter.” Per the article, the two met up on future occasions, with the Times quoting it as saying Trump last called Clifford in late 2009 or early 2010.

The In Touch article says it backed up Clifford’s claims via a polygraph and corroboration from an adult-film colleague and her ex-husband. Clifford has since denied the affair, and Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, again disputed the account to the Times, calling it the recirculation of “an old and debunked story.” As far as recirculation goes, Slate Group editor-in-chief Jacob Weisberg also elaborated on his conversations with Clifford in August and October of 2016 (no story was published at the time) in a piece for Slate, writing, “The worst Trump had done, she said, was break promises she’d never believed he would fulfill.” Like the In Touch article, Weisberg says Clifford told her Trump had promised her a slot on The Apprentice

After reading this story what would you think would be the reaction of Trump?

Do you think he would threaten a lawsuit?

But wait!  Let’s recap okay?

In Touch held back from publishing Stormy Daniels’ 2011 account of an alleged affair with Donald Trump after the future president’s personal lawyer threatened to sue, four former employees of the tabloid’s publisher told the AP. In Touch magazine published its interview with the adult film star on Friday—more than six years after Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, sent an email to In Touch‘s general counsel saying Trump would aggressively pursue legal action if the story was printed, according to emails described to the AP by the former employees. Daniels signed a source contract with the magazine, which said a friend and Daniels’ ex-husband corroborated her account of a 2006 tryst. She also passed a lie detector test, the magazine said.

In the interview, Daniels claims she and Trump had a sexual encounter after meeting at a golf tournament in Nevada, a year after Trump’s marriage to Melania. It wasn’t immediately clear why In Touch didn’t publish its interview during the 2016 presidential campaign despite reminders from former employees that the transcript was still available in the company’s networks, two former employees said. A spokesperson for the magazine claimed it only learned of its earlier interview after a report in the Wall Street Journal last week. She wouldn’t comment on the magazine’s decision not to publish in 2011. Despite Daniels’ first-person details on Trump, former employees said the decision not to run the story in 2011 was a justifiable business decision because at the time because Trump didn’t have the same star appeal as more famous celebrities.

Think about it……all the grief that others took like Gary Hart, Bill Clinton, John Edwards….after the media trashing these people took and now the act of sex is no big deal to the “moral majority”……plus the support remains…..amazing how times change.

Personally I care not how many these people had sex with…..all I care about is a little consistency….

You Must Be 21 To Participate

For my readers and followers that do not understand what happened….I am a political animal but on weekends I give my mind a break and find interesting stuff other than politics on which to post…..some of it is cultural, some sciencey and some just plain absurd…..just my small attempt to keep my mind grounded and well rested for the coming week……enjoy!

Holy crap!  There is a wealth of sex news these days……..I just saw the Arias story for the first time last week……you would think the media would be all over this because they love them some gossip……

There are a lot of things that one needs to be 18 to do…..fight for your country, stand trial as an adult, vote, get married and then there are somethings that one must be 21 to participate….like having a drink or buying a gun. And now there is a push for an age upgrade……..

The media were quick to jump all over the “disgraced” Miss Delaware Teen USA’s alleged turn in a porn video. But everyone missed the larger point: Melissa King was just 18 when she supposedly filmed it, writes Charles Lane in the Washington Post. “Why is it even legal to cast an 18-year-old in a sexually explicit movie?” he wonders. Eighteen might be the age at which you can vote, but certainly “having sex with a stranger for money and on camera belongs on the short list of risky behaviors that one can’t legally engage in before age 21,” like drinking, gambling, working as a stripper, or buying a gun. Congress set the minimum age to participate in porn at 18 in 1984, back when it took a lot more time, effort, and money to make a porn film. These days, anyone can film a sex act on a cellphone camera and distribute it on social media. “Mistakes like King’s are much easier to make but much harder to erase,” Lane writes. It’s time for Congress to recognize “the immaturity and vulnerability of some 18- to 21-year-olds” by changing the porn age. Click for Lane’s full column.

This is total crap!  If a woman can get married without parental permission then she should be able to have sex and make a movie…….okay let’s say they get their way…..can the female be emancipated and work in porn?  Can the parents give their permission for her to work?  Can we then expand their little law to include regular movies….no kid actors under the age of 21?  Where will it all end?

A Ranting I Will Go #1

It is Sunday and as usual I tried to find something that is not involved with politics to do a post on and I found a doosey……….

By now most us will know just how groundbreaking MTV has been in the past…the first vid channel….first vid award….the first …..well you get the picture……but now they are first yet again…the first to go to child porn as entertainment…..(is that not something one goes to prison for?)

Their new show “Skins” is an instant hit….3.3 million viewers for the first show…..

That pressure is already beginning to mount. At least one advertiser, Taco Bell, announced it is pulling its commercials from future shows.

Taco Bell is not the only organization up in arms about the new show. The Parents Television Council called on the chairmen of the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary committees and the Department of Justice to open investigations about what the PTC alleges is child pornography on “Skins” involving actors as young as 15.

Among the concerns are the ages of some of the actors. Several “Skins” cast members are as young as 15 years old. Their roles in upcoming episodes, which include nudity, have prompted some to wonder whether MTV is doing a delicate dance around child pornography issues.

There is a huge back lash against the show…..

Viacom executives have ordered producers to either make changes or tone down the most explicit content, the New York Times reports.

Meetings on the show were held Tuesday, and executives wondered if they could face criminal prosecution and jail time if the episodes were broadcast without changes, the Times reports.

They are nervous about the third episode of the series, in which 17-year-old actor Jesse Carere is shown running down these street naked from behind. The plot centers around his erection, aided by erectile dysfunction pills. It’s slated to air Jan. 31.

I understand the concern and the outrage……child porn is a problem in this country as well as the rest of the world….but should not someone feel obliged to ask the question….where are the parents of these children?

Come on…you can piss and moan about the content of the show…..but why would parents allow their children to be portrayed as sex addicts and drug addicts?  Should not the focus should be on the parents?  These are minors!  And if I go to jail for offering a drink to a minor, should not these parents be held to some sort of accountability?

I realize the money may be good, but this smacks of pimping your kids out to perverts….

Does Politics Make You Randy?

There are a lot of things in life that gives one a burning desire for sex or sexual related situations….I mean I love politics and political debate…..but it has never made me horny to the point that this article reports….From the Newser website..

A fun theory called the Challenge Hypothesis states that testosterone levels get a jolt after a person wins at something—and it’s held true when applied to everything from aggressive lizards to British soccer fans. Now two psychology professors have tested it on politics and porn, and their forthcoming study finds that those who back the winner look at more online porn than those who were rooting for the loser. “The results were very consistent,” Patrick Markey tells Aol News.

Markey and wife Charlotte looked at the relative popularity of 10 porn- and boob-esque keywords according to Google Trends in the weeks after the 2004, 2006, and 2008 elections. In 2004, such searches were up 2% in red states; in 2006 and 2008, they were up 3% in blue states. “That 2 to 3 percent may not seem like a lot,” Markey says. But when you consider that Google has 2 billion searches from US IP addresses per week, a 3% swing is 60 million more searches for porn. And while Markey acknowledges that correlation doesn’t equal causation, he says he’s found a “remarkably consistent” correlation—that he’ll test again, post-November. Click here for more.

Apparently over the years I have missed out somehow…..just my luck!

Now Here Is An Idea!

Bobbi Eden

A porn star from the Netherlands named Bobbi Eden has promised oral sex for all of her Twitter followers if the Netherlands win the World Cup. Fun!

Eden’s number of followers has gone from just over 4,000 on Tuesday when she first made her courageous promise, to 66,163 as of right now.

Yes Irene there is a GOD!

2009 Anal-Ocity

The health care debate has given me an endless supply of anal statements….but this time it has come from the recent Christian Conservative Conference in Washington.  This time it comes from the chief of staff for Sen. Tom Coburn:

“all pornography is homosexual pornography because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards.”

Wait!  All porn is gay porn?  Apparently, I am not watching the stuff this idiot is…..or maybe he has NO idea what he is talking about…I would think it is the latter.

You would think that a chief of staff for a US senator would be a little better informed……we are talking about Washington…..




And The Dog Ate My Homework……

I have heartd some amazing excuses for a lot of things…but damn!…this one is the bomb.

Florida investigators say a man accused of downloading child pornography is blaming his cat. Keith Griffin of Jensen Beach is charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography after detectives found more than 1,000 images on his home computer.According to a sheriff’s report Friday, Griffin told investigators that his cat jumped on the computer keyboard while he was downloading music. He said he had left the room and found “strange things” on his computer when he returned.

Your check is in the mail…….and I will not cum in your mouth……we can add one more to the list of greatest lies…..
