On our way home from the airport last night at around 3AM, my wife and I spotted a strange animal scurrying away from the road in a very rural area of the Ouachita Mountains. It was about the size of a small house cat or a skunk, but it was broad — almost square from [...]

I find myself suddenly in a dark pit, illuminated only by scattered fires and glowing lava pools. I fumble with my phone, but there are no bars. I start recording… Me: Wow, it’s hot! And what is that smell? The fiery pit is large and barren of life. Despite the overwhelming heat, the center of [...]
Many of us inside the computer industry were highly skeptical of Facebook’s IPO. I warned those near me that Facebook (NASDAQ FB) was grossly overpriced and would crash so hard, so fast that it might serve as a bullet in the head for the struggling global economy. It’s not just that Facebook’s market cap has [...]
I don’t know where to start. There’s so little left, so little in my heart. And what’s the point? No one will read this; there’s no one left. No, I don’t know that. I can’t think that way. I’ve got to go on. I’ve got to get back home somehow. My family might be okay. [...]
After announcing shipping delays, Google’s first tablet computer began arriving in the hands of owners this week and anecdotal reports suggest that the defect rate for the Asus manufactured device is high.

Recent U.S. Government flyers claim that reading electronics information on the Internet might mean you are a terrorist and need to be reported to law enforcement authorities. Popular electronics website iFixit, famous for tearing apart the latest gadgets, is understandably worried about the ramifications of such broadly worded fear mongering coming straight from the Feds. [...]
The recent strange and gigantic hole in the sun’s corona, visible in certain space-based images taken earlier this week, bears an eerie resemblance to a French representation of the Tetragrammaton, a word that refers to the name of God. The following image was taken from Wikipedia. From the Greek word “τετραγράμματον,” “Tetragrammaton” literally means “having [...]
A large and very oddly shaped coronal hole has appeared on recent images of the Sun taken from various American space-based observatories (SDO, SOHO, and SXI shown below). The hole is distinctly triangular in shape and is pointed at the Earth. According to SpaceWeather.com, the solar winds from this hole should arrive at Earth around [...]
I updated Skype recently to version 188.8.131.52 and I have had three straight calls that were dropped after 30 minutes, 24 seconds. This did not happen with previous Skype versions where I could maintain calls for hours. Microsoft purchased Skype last year for $8.5-billion and the service has been balky on several occasions since then.
NOTE: The makers of Guidestones contacted us about the manner the movie is distributed. A bug in their email scheduling code resulted in our getting all of the episodes jumbled in our inbox simultaneously. This bug has been fixed and we have updated the review below to reflect these distribution changes and have added other [...]
Chevrolet has uploaded to YouTube a 2012 Super Bowl advertisement for its popular Silverado line of pickup trucks. Based in a post-apocalyptic world foretold by the Maya, the ad shows a surviving Chevy Silverado emerging from the rubble and driving past a series of end-of-the-world disaster movie cliches while Barry Manilow’s Looks Like We Made [...]
Using sonar, a group of Swedish treasure hunters have discovered an odd 60 meter (200 foot) disc-shaped object on the bottom of the Baltic Sea adjacent to 400 meter (1,300 foot) “drag marks.” Referred to as an underwater “UFO” by the discoverer, the circular feature does not appear to be natural.
The talented Blue Grass group The Cleverlys covers the Bangles hit Walk Like an Egyptian and the result is comedic genius that sounds great. The spastic, twitchy, hilarious and gifted drummer is “Digger Jr. Jr.” who has been missing from the band for nearly two years. Whatever happened to him, The Cleverlys need to bring [...]
Recipe for a Revolution
In what could become the most spectacular solar event of an already eventful year, Comet Lovejoy (C/2011 W3) is racing towards solar doom today. With a coma that appears to be larger than Jupiter and with a tail stretching for tens of millions of miles, Comet Lovejoy is the first sungrazing comet observed directly from [...]
Deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was reportedly killed today. While members of the United States Government celebrate his killing, this video depicts a very different man and a very different Libya than the demonized images seen in mainstream media over the last year. The simple fact is that we do not have to struggle and [...]
Your family will be in our prayers.
The largest cometary impact of the sun that I have ever witnessed occurred this weekend triggering a significant coronal mass ejection (CME). The animated GIF below shows the event. The coma of the comet was bigger than the earth (although the nucleus was certainly much less massive) and its tail stretched for several million miles. [...]
This is the second installment of a series of informal blog posts about these eminently important topics. You can read the first post here. From all available scientific information, Comet Elenin is nothing special. In fact, it looks to be a boring, barely observable fizzy little conglomeration of rock and ice hurtling quickly through the [...]
For several months I have needed to write an important article following up on my Georgia Guidestones research. A good introduction to that research is here. However, my business is keeping me very busy and has made it impossible for me to spare enough time to write a proper article. Since so little time is [...]
A dear friend of mine, Richard Russell, has passed away. It is a sad day. Richard is responsible for the most important benchmark on the planet, the Windows Experience Index, a project he managed for Microsoft. Prior to working at Microsoft, Richard worked for AMD. I worked alongside Richard on the BAPCo consortium where he [...]
