    The use of “technicals” by military forces to round up citizenry as part of genocide. This post looks into the role that (so called) “technicals” play in national upheavals. A “technical” is a pickup truck that has been modified into a mobile heavy weapons platform. These machines have been commonly used in just about every national conflict over the last two decades. Here, we look at the role that they have, and why there are used. As opposed to other vehicles constrained for other purposes. Summary A technical is a light improvised fighting vehicle, typically an open-backed civilian pickup truck...

    I hate Skyler White. Hate. Until recently, I had no idea anyone actually liked her. I don’t know what Walt sees in her, except that she’s sort of pretty. In a nutshell, Walter White’s wife a petty, selfish, demanding bitch who in no way practices what she preaches. Let’s examine the facts, shall we?

    This is a monthly posting of Twitter follower growth for the past month for 2020 presidential candidates. Last Month's Post Here. For those who are new to this, what I do here is take a snapshot of Twitter followers at end of each month for people who have either formally announced or notable people who show interest in running for president in the 2020 cycle. Then I stack rank by what the growth is month-over-month in Twitter followers. This is very unscientific of course but I feel that Twitter growth in followers is a very strong indicator of candidate "velocity"...

    A British teenager was punished by a court after she posted allegedly racist lyrics from rapper Snap Dogg that said "kill a snitch n---a, rob a rich n---a." Chelsea Russell, a 19-year-old from Liverpool, argued that the words from the song "I'm Trippin" were not offensive, and that she had posted them in memory of a 13-year-old boy who was killed in a car crash last summer. But the lyrics on Russell's Instagram biography, which any other user can see, were reported to police last year and transferred to a unit for hate crimes over the alleged racism, according to...
