Child sexual abuse and child abuse

A report was released recently, stating that although child pornography websites only account for 2-3% of the "dark web", the traffic they generate (when bot traffic etc. is discounted) accounts for 87%. I'll see if I can find the link again.

Orly Makes The News

Amal Clooney represented Tymoshenko and Tymoshenko was released in February 2014. Two weeks later, all criminal cases against her were closed. Which had little to do with Amal Clooney and everything to do with the Ukrainian revolution. The law Tymoshenko had been charged according to, was simply re...

John Darash/Vidurek and the National LIberty Alliance

The leadership has fused a relationship with the Western Slope Organization (WSO)



Anyone know more about that? Neither Google or a cursory glance through Facebook groups seems to offer up anything.

Pope Francis

Another year, another consistory, another round of new cardinals. Looks like Pope Francis continues the trend from last year, with some, shall we say, unusual choices. A cardinal from Myanmar? That's a new one to me.

Personally, I've got one USB thumb drive with all my important documents on it, and another (larger one) with random stuff (photos etc) on, that I can afford to lose, but would rather not. Whatever else I've got on my PC, I'll just count as a loss if I'm ever hit with Ransomware or the like.

I use those all the time on Fourth of July. You're supposed to quickly step away from the mortar mine the second you light the fuse, so you're at least 4 or 5 meters away when it ignites. The type of mines involved in these incidents are the ones used by the professionals, and are supposed to be el...

What are you reading lately?

Over the holidays I've been reading a pair of collections of letters & diary notes from Danish soldiers of the Great War. Or rather, members of the Danish minority in Schleswig (which Denmark had lost after the war in 1864) and who suddenly found themselves serving in the Kaiser's army, fighting for...

More information: He was a drill sergeant for 6 years during the period of the first gulf war. When giving blood for some sort of test in the military he seems to have snapped (or started to snap) and that was what prompted him to get a DNA test. Through that DNA test he found he was a distant rela...
