The new legislation bans “propaganda of non-traditional relationships,” “propaganda of pedophilia,” and information about LGBT people and gender transitioning among people of any age through the media, the Internet, advertising, literature, and films, according to TASS.
Excellent. This type of law should be passed here at home.

The ancient War between reality and fantasy continues…
As James Lindsay points out, science is “by definition anti-Gnostic,” because – if practiced as intended – it seeks to describe nature as it is through empirical reason. That is, science observes evidence in the physical world, and only then bases its theoretical conclusions – its Knowledge – on those observations of reality. After which we can then use it to achieve some relative progress by “better according our lives with reality as it is and thus doing better in reality.”
In contrast, Lindsay identifies “the general madness of the world at the present” as resulting from the “parasitic bugbear” of Gnosticism, and specifically what he categorizes as “Scientific Gnosticism.” What makes Scientific Gnosticism different from science is that it inverts the above process: it puts the conclusions of Theory (its Gnosis) ahead of empirical observation of the world.…
…And if the world does not accord with Theory, then the world is wrong, and it “must seek to call truths things which are not.”

Do you garden? Why do you garden?
Do you garden for fresh produce at home? Maybe even to can some surplus for later home use?
Or do you garden to foster a
“more diverse and resilient local food system to empower communities to address issues like nutrition access and climate change.”
If the latter, the government wants YOU to register your garden.
What could possibly go wrong?
Like registering your guns, registering your garden is just telling the Democrats who has food to confiscate. Remember:
As the world teeters on the verge of nuclear war and economic collapse, remember that in times of war and economic downturns, food is more valuable than gold.
(Remember to thank your Democrat neighbors for this state of affairs.)
So go on, register your garden.
At least you’ll get a cool sign for your front yard.

Very interesting. Looks like something got mistranslated over the millenia…
“The measurements—300 cubits, 50 cubits, and 30 cubits—must be in the text of Genesis for a reason. But no one has been able to come up with a shape based on the Biblical dimensions that does not seem intuitively wrong.
“This would be a trivial question if it were not linked to a greater puzzle with profound theological and ethical implications. In the Torah, the strange word tevah is used only twice: once to describe Noah’s Ark, and once to describe the fragile container made out of bulrushes in which the infant Moses was placed in the Nile before Pharaoh’s daughter found him. It has long been a mystery why the same word would be used for the wicker basket that rescued Moses and the vessel that rescued the ancestors of all present-day human beings and animals.
“Until now. I have finally solved the mystery of the shape of Noah’s Ark—and discovered why it matters.”
Interesting theory. I’ll wait for further proof. Like some future Thor Heyerdahl building a replica and sailing it around with a bunch of animals for forty days.

Side profiles of some unsupported and supported breasts
For now, let’s concentrate the forces the boobs put on the bra at the nipple, to make them easier to analyse. We will also only consider external forces for now – i.e. how the bra as a whole works as a support device. In the extended version of this post, we will consider a simple 2D shape representing the structure of a bra, so we can discuss the distribution of forces a bit more in depth, so check that out if you’re interested.
