It is not surprising that the leftist blogs leave out the most reliable predictor of the future - the Bible.

Guess what?  The combination of an evil dictator who tries to annihilate anyone who disagrees with him, and a bunch of well placed meteors is just about all it takes to bring down the bulk of the human race.

@Max: "The world is such a wonderful place, why do people do this stuff?".

All I can say is that, after watching the videos on TV, I'm afraid that the ones under the devastating effects of this drug were not enjoying their time... and neither were the almost 10 policemen that were trying to stop a single "drug-zombie" guy!

@Garcia: Have you ever heard about the bath salts drug? One of the side effects when in overdose is that people gets extremely violent and uncontrolled... and even bites!!

@Max: re zombies... if you were able to watch the Spanish TV, you would discover that the Zombie Apocalypsis has already started around the Balearic Islands.

Have you ever heard about the bath salts drug? One of the side effects when in overdose is that people gets extremely violent and uncontrolled... and even bites!! -- this very bad drug makes you behave like an authentic zombie!!

Karen asked: Are kilts strictly for men, or can a woman wear one and would it still be a kilt in that case?

My understanding is that for women a "kilt" usually means a "Scottish kilt" which is a knee-length wrap-around skirt with unpleated overlapping panels in the front called "aprons" and pleated sides and back.  When she wears it it's still a kilt.

@Max: in the meantime check out THIS ARTICLE


Interesting how this leftist website leaves out societal collapse, especially with the recent history of the credit crunch. It was THE big fear for the survivalists in the 1970's and with Y2K. I guess it's not on 'message'. Here's a quote from Wikipedia.

The House of Cards, a society that has grown to be so large and include so many complex social institutions that it is inherently unstable and prone to collapse. This type of society has been seen with particular frequency among Eastern bloc and other communist nations, in which all social organizations are arms of the government or ruling party, such that the government must either stifle association wholesale (encouraging dissent and subversion) or exercise less authority than it asserts (undermining its legitimacy in the public eye).

By contrast, as Alexis de Tocqueville observed, when voluntary and private associations are allowed to flourish and gain legitimacy at an institutional level, they complement and often even supplant governmental functions: They provide a "safety valve" for dissent, assist with resource allocation, provide for social experimentation without the need for governmental coercion, and enable the public to maintain confidence in society as a whole even during periods of governmental weakness.

@kfield :You can redeem yourself with another blog focused on the zombie apocalypse.

I will try to do so in the not-so-distant future -- in the meantime check out THIS ARTICLE that lists the 10 biggest threats to human existance -- number #10 is particularly interesting...
