Senate decides crack is now only 18 times worse than cocaine

July 29, 2010

Peruvian anti-narcotics police transport bricks of confiscated cocaine at a police airport in Lima, July 12, 2010. About 1,800 kilograms of cocaine were confiscated by anti-narcotics police during operations that led to the detention of one Bolivian and eight Peruvian citizens at the cities of Moquegua and Arequipa, police said.

Just a few days ago crack was considered to be 100x worse than cocaine when it came time for criminal sentencing. Today, it is only 18x worse. 500 grams of coke will land you 5 years in jail, and all of you will be pleased to know that you now have to carry 28 grams of crack to get the same sentence, up from a measly 5 grams.

Deer strikes, causes suicide

July 19, 2010

Darted fallow deer await relocation from Robben Island, off Cape Town, April 24, 2010. About 75 of the non-indigenous deer are being relocated to the Lions Rock sanctuary by the Four Paws (Vier-Pfoten) conservation group. In recent years rabbits, cats and deer have been culled to lessen the negative environmental effects to the island, a World Heritage site where former President Nelson Mandela spent much of his 27 year incarceration.

In this neck of the woods, a motorcyclist striking a deer is unfortunatly not all that news worthy. A man found shot in the head after hitting a deer, now thats freaky.

It makes the mind race, did the gun go off when he hit the deer? Did the deer in his final act of revenge kick the gun and cause it to go off? Did someone happen along, see the incident and make it more horrible?

Alternate sources are now claiming after an autopsy, that after hitting the deer, the man shot himself. The likely story is after seeing a deer destroy his expensive piece of machinery, the guy decided he had enough and pulled the trigger. So while the deer didn’t kill him, it made him want to kill himself. After hitting a deer and seeing your valuable property that you worked your ass off for be destroyed by a random animal, I can sympathize with what was probably going through his head.

My best to the friends and family of the biker, perhaps one day we can band together and eliminate the deer scourge once and for all.

Nuke the Earth, oh wait we already did

Talk about a coincidence, here is an awesome article on Wired featuring a video that a Japanese artist made depicting every nuclear explosion from 1945-1998. I would embed it but it seems wordpress won’t let me for whatever reason.


Three Eyed Fish are coming

July 8, 2010

It seems that radioactive fish are being found in the Connecticut River. While state officials insist that it is simply background radiation like that found in any playground (Simpson’s reference go!), there is the happy coincidence it is down stream from the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Facility.  These results are more likely the fallout (literally) of decades of weapons testing that blanketed the globe with radioactive goodness.  It’s my hope that this will finally spawn a race of Blinky’s, may as well get something good out of irradiating the atmosphere.
