    I saw Jebus — look near North Dakota. He’s there!!!!

      Best first check the disclaimer of the drugs your are using. Look for side effects related to mental problems.

      If he was there, he would be in the headquarters of Goldman Sachs, next to God.

    Ya’ll better stop farting after eating all that preprocessed GMO junkfood. Given the Butterfly effect it probably causes those tornados.

    The site only keeps Loading all the time. You probably overload-crashed it now :)

    Looks like a map the hot air emanating from the Republican candidates as they move around the country.

    From the link above.
    “An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. ”

    If we can only get our heads out of our asses. The oil/gas companies have all the answers and solutions. Only fossil fuels will sustain the worlds energy needs.

    • B. Dog says:

      It is a fun map. Thanks.

      Regarding the first explorations of the world, you may want to check out the National Geographic Genome Project. They have a very different view of the first exploration of the world; it was done by walking.

      Actually land going sailing ships have been tried. Unless the location is flat they don’t work all that well or were you suggesting covering you neighbor hood with giant, noisy, dangerous, bird killing prayer towers that stand around doing nothing half the time?

      I believe their are ~14000 abandoned ones, many in CA, that you can purchase if you want one. Tell you what you do that and let the rest of us know how it works out for you. If you get rich maybe the rest of us will be willing to invest.

        “bird killing prayer towers”
        What the hell is a, prayer towers? Some dead birds for some no cost power, how sad. Fuck the few thousand birds and let’s move off the oil tit.

        “To most experts, though, there’s a problem with the bird-mortality argument: The vast majority of research shows that wind turbines kill relatively few birds, at least compared with other man-made structures. The statistics are shocking if you consider just how many people are crying out against wind power for the birds’ sake.”

        http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/green-science/wind-turbine-kill-birds.htm

        My idea would be to put some wind turbines in front of Rush, Sean and O’Reilly. Some real blowhards. JK clear channel fans, same could be said for the MSNBC crowd.

        But really, why not out at sea have wind turbines generating electricity. The logistics can be over come with good ole American ingenuity.
        If Americans were educated like the rest of the modern world and the kiddies were taught to innovate for the future of renewable energy, I see a bright future.

        The American education system of today which teaches to the test will produce nothing for the future. All progress of renewable energy is stifled by the Solyndra meme and big oil/gas. The Chinese are to blame for the killing of solar production in the U.S. ( “the main reason is the large subsidy the government of China provides to its solar manufacturers. By some estimates, China gave $30 billion to solar manufacturers last year and now China dominates the solar industry”)

        I can’t believe it’s 2012 and the solar/wind power is still thought to be voodoo. I remember back in the late 70’s with the oil crisis looming, I was selling and installing wood and coal stoves like crazy. The trend toward solar and the like looked bright. Oil companies made sure that bright light was extinguished.

        • deowll says:

          Actually the countries that have invested most in it are the ones that feel most burned. The numbers they were promised failed to materialize.

          You can BS that all you want. It won’t change the data.

          As for the greens. Convincing them is your problem. These people are dangerous.

          • jpfitz says:

            You can believe all the oil/gas propaganda you want.

            Keep an eye on Japan.

    Awesome, clean, renewable energy source right there ready to feed the energy grid.

    • deowll says:

      At a ten to 20% markup and be sure and keep those old coal power plants around for when the wind isn’t blowing the right speed or the greens say you have to stop them because of all the bird kills.

      • jpfitz says:

        Gather the dead birds and grind em up then feed them to the U.S. population. Let’s call it energy slime.
        The FDA already has a version called pink slime.

      • jpfitz says:

        The reserve energy gets backed up into huge arrays of batteries, just for the purpose you mentioned.

        I have some solar powered led lights mounted around my house. Three years running without a hitch and when the power grid went down my house lights were magically coming on when needed. It’s priceless seeing someones face when no genny is running and our lighting works.

      • scandihoovian says:

        I’d love for some dead bird kill stats by prayer tower. Are you in the prayer tower business?

  7. Anonymous says:

    …And still no evidence of the deep dark hole we all know is in Washington — where all the HOT air comes from. Does that sound like more government conspiracy to anyone? Or is it just evidence that the Devil knows how to cover his tracks?

    (Check your meds before answering. And then you might want to check with your political leaders – who do all the thinking – to determine which theory is correct.)

  8. AdmFubar says:

    is it me??? or is there a lot of hot air in california???

  9. AdmFubar says:

    HA! made ya look!

    Looks more like a Rogaine ad.

    They didn’t show the jet stream. The nice wandering loop of wind that guides the rest.

    Kite enthusiasts porn video! LOL! ;)

    when I look at the hairy map, I can’t resist the urge to pet and cuddle my computer screen!

  14. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    Its inaccurate, Sharpton’s goings weren’t listed.

  15. Glenn E. says:

    It looked to me as if the predominant wind direction was toward Canada. As if nearly everything was being sucked northward. I’ve heard that some people believe things suck, up in Canada. While I tend not to believe it myself. Labeling it FUD, to cloud the fact that they have a working National Health Care system, right next door to the USA’s highly problematic private system. It’s hard to not observe from that image that at least on some esoteric level, Canada sucks. Maybe they’ve cornered the world market on vacuum cleaners.

    Wind generation is already cheaper than coal without all the pollution. If we had any brains, foresight, or caring we would get on this:
