USA, NSA and the Spying (Part 2)

NSASpyHere we go again, and it looks bad for Germany to process an Anti-Spy-Act
with the USA. Susan Rice has officially stated that the USA are NOT willing
to give a non-spying warranty in the future and thus create a precedence
case for other countries to demand such from the USA.

Nature can be spooky…

videoIf you see 20m tall trees vanishing then you make yourself think about
what made them vanish. In this video, some boaters are just filming a
tree group sinking into a giant sinkhole in Assumption Perish, Louisiana.
The sinkhole is the result of a hidden gas and oil reservoir below the lake.

The USA and NSA – A parody

gif_64x64_d6a471The recent spying actions and scandals of the USA and NSA are drawing
their circles. Not only are several countries sort of pissed off being spied
on, no it is also the fact that Barack Obama is still defending the attitude
that it is perfectly okay to “monitor” allies’ operations and actions.

Shit’n’Dine – Weird restaurant themes

videoEver thought of a restaurant where you sit on a toilet bowl? Or even eat
out of one? In Los Angeles, a new eatery has opened with toilets as theme.
The result looks quite disturbing yet funny, however it may not hit
everyone’s taste. Interesting to see that such weird ideas still come true.

How loud can people yell in a crowd?

videoA question, many people would answer with: “Loud enough” or “loud as a
pneumatic drill”. While the first expression cannot be clearly defined, the
second one is defined with 90 to 100 db (quite loud). But these days,
the fans of the Kansas Chiefs have set a new world record in crowdyelling.

as he has stolen prime ribs valued for 30 (thirty!) US$. Now
you may ask what lets the U.S. government judge so hard

movie-iconIt’s not often that you see officers let their fists speak prior to

stock share price of 436 US$ shows), Apple is now targeted by the IRS
for hiding billions of taxes from the U.S. government.

Rembrandt Social Media LP vs. Facebook

Yes, I know, it’s boring to read again about some copyright infringement.
And yes I am also bored, too. But maybe this is a way to show why money
still rules the world and why people are willing about to give up their soul
for something that usually isn’t worth fighting for.

Some people never learn when to behave. For instance when being at court

5000 US$ for possession of Xanax and B.A.R.S. – both pharmaceutics are
categorized as drugs as they can make you dependent of them quickly.

USA breaks it’s holiest taboo!

The USA and Barack Obama have ratified an agreement to raise the debt
limit as long as needed without any upper limit. This way, the USA is trying
to ensure it’s full liquidity. However there’s some stale taste with this as the
actual 16.4 trillion DS$ debt equals 100% of the annual US economic power!

It seems as if the USA have only one option to evade the debt crisis. Allow
more debts. The republicans have proposed, that the debt border line shall
be expanded with no limit until May, 18th to buy more time to find a way out
of the debt crisis. Is this the right way? Interesting is another passus.

How the USA wants to solve the debt

The USA have a big problem. The problem is money. The USA is missing 16
trillion of it actually. So what’s the way to solve this misery? One thing might
be the issue of a platinum coin with a nominal value of, let’s say 1 trillion.
Issuing 16 of these and selling them to the FED would virtually solve the prob.
