A Scary Prediction From 1965


Paul Harvey, was an American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks.  He passed away in 2009.

Some interesting facts surround this popular broadcaster, lets take a look:

There is a lot

according to this blog, harvey is a wolf in sheep’s clothing…make your own decision here.

But the freakiest thing, is this broadcast from 1965, If I Were the Devil :

Is the Zombie Apocalypse Here?


Has the dreaded “Zombie Apocalypse” arrived?

Here is the tweet you don’t want to get, but this happened last night at the Institute for Genomic Biology in Urbana Illinois.

Vague. and then….

UPDATE 9:28am: @IlliniAlert reports that everything is OK: “The hazardous materials release at the Institute of Genomic Biology has been mitigated and is no longer a threat. IGB will be open tomorrow.”

Since the tweet, it’s been reported that a shelf collapsed on a man which splashed chemicals on him….he’s okay….I guess.

Hope all is okay,  I’ve been a little spooked since I heard about all of those FEMA coffins headed towards Chicago.

I guess it’s just a few cases of excited delirium mixed with mass hysteria.

Honor Student Jailed for Absences


A Texas judge threw a 17 year old honor student in jail and fined her $100 after she was absent from school again.  Last month she was in court for truancy and the judge warned her if she missed more classes she’d go to jail.  The junior who is living with her employer after her parents divorced and move said she worked 2 jobs to support herself, her older brother who is attending college and a younger sister that lives with relatives. Her parents unexpectedly divorced last year and moved away.  Often she is too tired to wake up on time for school, but is attempting to take advanced placement and college credit courses.

I think the judge made the wrong decision the first time Diane Tran went to court.  He should have told her to cut back on her work first or take less challenging classes.  I thought labor laws stopped 17 year olds from having full time jobs, much less both a full and part time?  I suppose she has been emancipated from her parents and on a work release program at her high school.

The second time she appeared in court the judge should have opened an investigation as to why this 17 year old has much responsibility, ordered her back to school, interviewed her teachers and made sure her employers are not taking advantage of her.   Clearly something is wrong in her life if she feels like she has to take care of 3 people.  In my personal opinion jail is not the answer and “making and example” of her will not deter most kids from skipping school if they really want to.

“If you let one (truant student) run loose, what are you gonna’ do with the rest of ‘em? Let them go too?” Judge Moriarty asked.

I’m almost positive there are better “candidates” to make an example of if you are in the business of locking up students for truancy.  Gotta get em the system early so they can learn the ropes…once you go into jail and are labeled an offender, it’s almost like a freaking revolving door.

She went to jail on a week day so she missed school- again.  Which is what I thought the judge was trying to prevent.   Let us hope she was not marked truant again.

I hope she does achieve her dreams and does not get stuck in the system since the U.S. has the highest recidivism rate in the world.

Anonymous Leaks 1.7GB of Justice Department Info


The group “Anonymous” has just released 1.7GB of Justice Department(statistical) data on The Pirate Bay in what they are calling Monday Mail Mayhem.

“Within the booty you may find lots of shiny things such as internal emails, and the entire database dump.

We Lulzed as they took the website down after being owned, clearly showing they were scared of what inevitably happened.”

Personally I have become very skeptical of these leaks because they coincide directly with the U.S. government‘s plan to tighten their control on the world’s internet.    Anonymous has not released terribly damning evidence, instead they’ve released information to informants, presumably unknowingly, onto servers that the government had control over.  For example, the Stratfor leaks earlier this year were compromised after they entered the hands of informant hacker “Sabu“.  The FBI perhaps then had time to sift through and delete anything sensitive, alter or add to the information.  It was then compromised data.

I do not know what is in this round of leaks, but if its nothing shocking, I will be more convinced that the group claiming to be Anonymous is actually the government staging a false flag operation to speed up their control of the internet, information and freedom in general.  It is crime statistic data supposedly, so I cannot imagine it is very interesting.  The Department of Justice has already admitted that security was breached, don’t you think they would have tightened it since they got hacked last, right after Megaupload was shut down?

Facebook Tool: Who Are You Looking At?


I came across an interesting little tool that tells you who you are searching for most on your facebook.  From the tests that I did the results seem pretty accurate.  I mean, you probably have an idea of who’s name you type in the search bar most, but still its a fun little trick.

Basically, you make sure https browsing is turned off. Then you take this little bookmarklet and drag it up to your toolbar.  It should say “facebook friends”.  Then you go to your facebook page and just click on the link you moved into your toolbar.  Your most searched for friends will be at the top.

QR Codes, Why?


At first I thought QR codes were neat.  QR stands for quick response, but in my opinion, they are anything but quick.  They are a hassle. And you don’t know where it may take you.  Hello picture of a _______! (use your imagination)  QR codes were invented back in 1994  in Japan by the Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave to track vehicles during the manufacturing process.

You download a qr code reader program for your smartphone, then with your phone, you align the code, hold it steady, and it will capture the image and then it takes you to a link… sounds neat.  but however as time went on I realized they are a gigantic pain in the butt.

First of all you need a semi decent smart phone with a camera able to get close enough to the code to read it.

  • QR codes generally don’t work well or AT ALL if they are printed on glossy paper.  So fail.  I tried 3 different brands of smartphones, 2 programs, none worked.
  • QR codes sometimes come on the news or other programming, but only stay on the screen for about 5 seconds, clearly enough time for me to get out my phone, open up my code reading program, and align it with the camera.  Another fail.
  • QR codes in places they have no business.  On the inside label of an alcoholic drink.  As if doing anything requiring more than 2 steps was easy when you are drunk, think about the frustration this would cause.. you must get out your phone, open the program, align your camera and hold it steady to the code printed on the back of a label stuck on a clear bottle of booze.  I don’t think a phone would even be able to read through the glass distortion if you got that far. This could be dangerous or cause a bar room brawl.  I don’t advise trying this one intoxicated.

  • Why do they put QR codes on vehicles.  Unless you are parked, it’s pointless.
  • QR code tattoos.  I’m just going to stay away from that one.
  • On highway signs.  I thought it was illegal to text and drive at the same time.  I guess the passenger could do it, but wait, unless you are not moving this really freaking difficult.
  • On the roof of a building.  Facebook has one.  Seriously!

Risks include linking to dangerous websites with browser exploits, enabling the microphone/camera/GPS and then streaming those feeds to a remote server, analysis of sensitive data (passwords, files, contacts, transactions), and sending email/SMS/IM messages or DDOS packets as part of a botnet corrupting privacy settings, stealing identity, and even containing malicious logic themselves such as javascript or a virus.  These actions may occur in the background while the user only sees the reader opening a seemingly harmless webpage.

Here is an article if you feel like scanning, that is just disturbing:

share your creative uses or where you’ve seen these codes too!  I love feedback.
