Mendota and museum.

Today, in Madison, it was not summery, but we loved it down by the lake:

And we browsed the Samurai exhibit at the Chazen:

The weather finally broke, here in Boston. Vacation time is coming up soon: Back to Buffalo / Toronto; between those two Great Lakes that I Love.

In 2003 the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise starred in a film called "The Last Samurai."

The heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise plays Captain Nathan Algren, a cynical veteran of the American Civil war who will work for anyone, and is hired by Americans who want lucrative contracts with the Emperor of Japan. Action scenes, featuring the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, ensue.

Badly wounded, Algren -- played by the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise -- makes a courageous stand that causes the Samurai leader Katsumoto to spare the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise's life.

Nursed back to health, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise learns to know and respect the old Japanese way.

Unfortunately, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise did not win an Oscar for his performance.

But he is OT VII. And Not Gay.

I am Laslo.

The Best Joke I've heard to date:

"Why don't kleptomaniacs get puns?"

"Because they take things. Literally!"

(Snort!)

I've hit a run of awful action flicks and teenage love lost flicks. I blame the you-may-like recommendation list. You get one bad one, you get a dozen. Your browsing history is contaminated.

Plot, people.

Dying for a Sun god was at best a short burst of mind controlled Fake glory. Thank God they are all dead and gone.

Good joke, Be. We both laughed out loud. Literally. Like a couple of kleptos.

My TIVO thinks I'm gay.

On vacation. Don't want to return to Madison.

Alas, I'm running a telecon on Wednesday.

Sad.

The heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise speaks...

You'll find this hard to believe, but I, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, once struggled with homosexual urges. Yes, me, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise....

Then I learned about L. Ron Hubbard's Tone Scale. Sexual perversion, a category in which he included homosexuality, was termed "covert hostility" and given a score of 1.1, "the level of the pervert, the hypocrite, the turncoat, ...the subversive." I, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, realized that I did not want to be THAT guy...

Once I realized these urges came from unwanted body Thetans, I, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, knew I had only one option: to Audit these Gay Urges Thetans out of my body...

I can tell you, it wasn't easy: I, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, would be holding the cans of the E-Meter while my Auditor showed me Gay Porn, and the E-Meter doesn't lie: my body Thetans were reacting positively to the scenes of muscular men fucking other muscular men in the ass and sucking each other's throbbing cocks...

But my Will is Strong, and only stronger through Scientology. I, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, conquered the Gay Body Thetans, and am proud of my Heterosexuality...

Sure, sometimes there are setbacks, even for me, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise: in Hollywood there are a LOT of handsome Gay Men, and I can feel the Thetans try to again gain entrance into my being. I can tell you, it is tough when the Thetans urge you, saying 'don't you want to suck that cock, Tom? Don't you want to suck that cock...?"

But I know THAT is the time when Auditing is most important: BEFORE I start masturbating to Gay Porn in the middle of a sleepless night...

With Auditing -- and the Spiritual Guidance of LRH -- I, the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise, stay ahead of these Gay Thetans That Desire Cock...

I am the heterosexual Scientologist Tom Cruise. I am OT VII. And Not Gay.


I am Laslo.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on Sunday that Loretta Lynch’s reported directive to former FBI Director James Comey to mislead the public about the Clinton email investigation gives him a “queasy feeling,” echoing similar comments from Comey and Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. “You know, I think Senator Feinstein’s comment, I would agree with. It does give me a queasy feeling as well,” said Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee

These guys should buck up already. Man up and do what they have to do! They have reasons on their side... REASONS! No time to go all queasy now! They have stuck by the piracy of the Clintons through rape and plunder, now they are going to get "queasy" at a little avoidance of Congressional oversight? Buck the fuck up Democrats!

On the subject of "Shut up because reasons!" we go to Climate Science

I changed my mind in 2009 after the climategate emails, if you are familiar with this, it was the unauthorised release of emails from the University of East Anglia, included email exchanges by a number of the authors of the IPCC reports.

Sharon Carleton: No less than eight top-level, independent committees investigated and published reports on this so called ‘climategate’ affair. The reports found there was no evidence of fraud or scientific misconduct and the scientists were completely exonerated.

Judith Curry: From what? Basically what I saw from those emails, and I read pretty much all of them, was that I really did not like the sausage-making that went into this consensus. It was a lot of skulduggery and bullying going on, and trying to hide uncertainties and thwart people from getting papers published and trying to keep data out of the hands of people who wanted to question it. I realised that there was a lot of circular reasoning, a lot of uncertainties, a lot of tuning, just a lot of things that made me not have any confidence at all in what they had done. So I started speaking out. This basically turned me into an outcast amongst the establishment climate scientists.


She's an outcast for reasons.

This is why the most distressing thing of all is the refusal of universities to teach kids to think, to analyze, to think critically, to go to primary sources, take on the best arguments, etc, etc, etc. But I am an old man with a heart condition, to the problem of Virtually Unknown pointing out flaws in the propaganda will solve itself soon enough. You would think though that the kinds who actually are smart, not the ones who just like to think of themselves as smart, would start to rebel against the overweening idiocy of the whole thing.... You would think.
