    To the dark matter people:
    Someone once said “Be nice to people on the way up because you meet the same people on the way down.” I prefer to follow the words of the late Mr. Don Rickles who once said, “Screw them, you meet totally different people on the way down.”

    Hello Gentlemen,
    Re Ageing….I appreciate that there are only so many hours in a day and so its not possible to be up to speed with the anti-ageing research…so here is a quick update. The brightest star in this field is arguably Prof. David Sinclair, a fellow Aussie who now is a professor at Harvard. David was the first to discover Resveratol, Sirtuins and the first to reverse ( yes reverse) the ageing in a mouse ( turning an equivalent 70 year old mouse into a 20 year old mouse). There are many studies going on around the world now ( TAME) designed to see ageing reclassified as a disease and then funded appropriately. If you don’t age, then you ( for the most part) don’t get diabetes, cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia etc. David will have a molecule called NMN available for the market in perhaps 3 years. it is presently undergoing human trials. The suspected base age of a human is probably 120 years….this will likely be doubled through molecular medicine with an increase in health-span up until the last 6 months.
    And then there is the Genetic road as in CRISPR 3.0….You can already purchase this technology to lengthen Telomeres for $1 Million US, but lengthening Telomeres is only part of the process. This technology should be available to the general public by 2030. The catch cry right now is actually, live long enough to live forever…it will be possible within the next decade.

    I personally think that this is no coincidence …..just as the Earth is about to get hit by a cyclical Micro Nova, Humanity will have the technology for some of its citizens to not only survive, but likely survive for hundreds of years to hand over and guide the next and first generation of the next human life wave… Sounds like a plan to me.

    Personally, without regard to the reason for the taxation, I would fully support any kind of tax that heavily penalizes the accumulation of wealth. I don’t know where to draw the line, but I don’t think we’d have as many conspiracies if being a billionaire were illegal. And yes, I think it should not only be immoral but also illegal.

    Politics should be discussed sparingly. Many paint themselves unnecessarily.

    I have to address this notion that Wall Street trades are not taxed. They most definitely are! If you have held your asset and make a profit on it for less than a year, you are taxed on the profit at the ordinary income rate. In other words, if you’re in a 15% bracket then your short-term capital gains will be taxed at the same rate as your ordinary income. This of course varies widely depending upon how many dependents you have and how much income you make.

    If you hold an asset over a year, then you are taxed at the long-term capital gains rate, which can be 0%, 15%, or 20%. In other words, there can be a big benefit from going long. Day Traders get socked which tends to offset the Wild games that can be made by people with an ear to the ground and the ability to integrate several different factors into their asset buys. This means that the little investor going long gets to keep his capital gains, while the big wheeler dealer day trader will be tax bracketed into as much as 37%, under the 2018 tax rates.

    Capital gains taxes apply to any asset, including for example a classic car that you bought for $5,000 and sell for $8,000. Likewise home sales are taxed, but they have their own special rules.

    In the IT field I have encountered a lot of “intereference” causing sounds similar to what Adrian was broadcasting.
    Probably not the same situation but worth mentioning Incase it is his network lol

    One of the companies I work for in California can procure a used MRI machine if you guys are serious. Ben you know how to reach me.

    So really the only explanation for mass population die offs that is needed is that the storms caused by these events can make a majority of the population sick and it will spread freely and rapidly because of environmentally resistant infections spores, yeah I’m dark at night but I am a fungi.

    To Anyone With Children (re: Glyphosate)

    Glyphosate in popular cereals

    CEH recently tested a variety of cereals and found glyphosate contamination in the following products:


    Quaker Oatmeal Squares (2015 ppb)
    Gerber Oatmeal (545 ppb)
    Market Pantry Toasted Oats (826 ppb)
    Beechnut Oatmeal (735 ppb)
    Kroger Toasted Oats (346 ppb)
    Marshmallow Mateys (303 ppb)
    Joe’s Os (672 ppb)
    Quaker Life Original (1254 ppb)
    Signature Kitchen Os (762 ppb)
    Honey Nut Cheerios (557 ppb)
    Great Value Os (1220 ppb)

    *These results are consistent with a U.S. Food and Drug Administration study of oatmeal (300 – 1670 ppb of glyphosate).
