Climate Scientists FAIL to put the Puzzle Together

The easy route is to blame man made climate change. I 100% agree that man pollutes and man is irresponsible and should stop doing this but that is not what is happening. If you actually link the movement of change, you see that the cold is moving down over North America for longer periods of time. That same amount of movement can also be seen in Antarctic where one side (the side they measure to prove their global warming point) is melting while ice on the other side is growing at an even fast rate. We have some really bad scientists out there who treat science as a religion and policy as dogma. At one time, the antarctic was hot. Man had nothing to do with that. Climate will always change. The real issue is that people live in the here and now and can’t grasp long term change. Back before man centralized with cities they would migrate as the weather changed. There are too many people now to do that (overpopulation… again). Animals still try and migrate with weather patterns but man has made these gigantic cities everywhere and now that the weather is changing, the animals can’t migrate accordingly. Seriously… The climate change is most likely natural but man IS a problem with pollution and overpopulation which affects how we view it. We need policies to stop pollution. Not idiotic cap and trade ponzi schemes that get government rich and in the business of selling pollution. We also need some sort of way to stop people from breeding the way they are. Human overpopulation is the real threat to this planet and all who exist on it.

The Xbox One NEEDS More Exclusives and some Third Person Hack & Slash Games!!!

I’ve had every generation of Xbox and frankly, this current generation is piss poor where games are involved. That is, unless you love FPS (First Person Shooters). It seems like every game is a damn FPS. Then you take into account that we have seen no new Fable (Microsoft closed the studio), no new Ninja Gaiden (WTF???), no new Prince of Persia (Helloooo anyone out there in developer land???), just nothing compelling at all. Sure, there have been some updated past collections made into HD but we’ve already played them. Where is the cool new stuff??? The PS4 has cool games coming out in waves (all 3rd person and platform) yet we only get the millionth iteration of some FPS nonsense. Microsoft really needs to step it up here. There are more gamers out there besides FPS and sports game gamers.

Governments Making Ransomware Illegal

Michigan has created a law whereby possession of ransomware is now a felony. I bet the hackers are just shaking in their boots… Are politicians really this stupid? Don’t answer that. Yes. Yes they are. Government is such a clusterf**k of idiocy.

Marriage is in the Comic Book Air

A lot of marriages seem to be happening in comic books currently. The two biggest are Bruce Wayne (Batman) and Selina Kyle (Catwoman) and then Colossus and Kitty Pryde of the X-men. Meanwhile… Marvel is still not putting Peter Parker (Spider-man) and MJ back together and that still bugs the hell out of me. Come on Marvel!!! Out of all the characters that should be together, Peter and MJ should be. OK, maybe Reed Richards and Sue Storm should always be together too but these are the top married couples in comics for crying out loud.

On another note… I’m rereading the Ultimate Spider-man run currently and I’m at the part where Peter Parker broke up with MJ because he feared that him being Spidey would get her killed. So 2 weeks go by and he starts dating Kitty Pryde, because since she is powered up, she can take care of herself. They did make a cute couple… But I digress.

The New Thirty Seconds to Mars Hits Today!!!

I know… I have Amazon Music Unlimited (and I LOVE it!!!) but I bought this in CD form too (same for Imagine Dragons – Evolve), because I wanted to listen to them in the car on the CD player. No… sorry… I’m not buying a new entertainment deck for my vehicle just to stream from my phone. I suppose that will come with the next vehicle I get but until that time, it’s radio and CD. I just got the notification from Amazon that the CD has arrived at home too. Super Excited!!! The Imagine Dragons should arrive tomorrow. That is definitely my favorite album and band right now. You just can’t categorize the interesting fusion of sounds and styles that Imagine Dragons have created. As far as Thirty Seconds to Mars, I’ve heard 2 songs from the album and liked them both… so here’s hoping the entire album is just as awesome!!!

Is it 2020 Yet?

Just asking? I’m not sure how bad his royal Trumpness is going to tank our economy with these stupid tariffs (which amount to skyrocketing taxes paid for by the consumer), but I’m so over this dude.

No need to get in line because you just read today’s Streamline!!!
