BBC now admits Al Qaeda never existed

I'm just not sure how to feel about this video. According to the report, the word Al-Qaeda literally means "the database." Or in this case, a database of jihadists who fought the Russians during their invasion in the 1980's. The report argues that the American CIA used the attack in 2001 to further their own agenda, the PATRIOT ACT, and blamed Al-Qaeda in order to continue other agendas including the over throw of Hussein in Iraq, the installation of Karzai in Afghanistan, and the ouster of the Islamist Government in Somalia, among many others.

The last two tutorials have been fairly straight forward in that each round has a specific strategy to color by numbers, stay in the lines and then win.

Following this piece by piece instruction set would become incredibly tedious for the remaining rounds. Instead, we're going to give the theory behind causing as much

XKCD.org Approximations

For those that are math nerds, Randall Munroe who makes XKCD created a chart of approximations that are commonly used by college professors and high school teachers alike.
He notes, "Two tips: 1) 8675309 is not just prime, it's a twin prime, and 2) if you ever find yourself raising log(anything)^e or taking the pi-th root of anything, set down the marker and back away from the whiteboard; something has gone horribly wrong."

Bill Hicks

Is there anything more that needs to be said? Bill Hicks. Brilliant commentator, critic and philosopher of modern society, all hidden behind the guise of a stand-up comic. Died almost 20 years ago, but is still spot on relevant every year since. I've personally heard his works countless times, and honestly believe everyone should at one point hear what he has to say.

The infiltration of Satan, and her inevitable victory

After watching the video posted before this, http://abjectsomething.com/node/73
I find it to be... something, that while I had once fretted over and postulated a theory that literally altered my being and haunted me for years, I come to see a similar theory babbled on in some conspiracy theory video as a throw away comment. I'm referring to the idea that the phenomenon of "aliens from another world existing among us", when in fact, there

A decent Christian opinion framework on conspiracy elements.

I enjoyed this video, to my recollection, none of it came into direct conflict with what i know and believe about Christianity. It makes mention of the Biblical account of the "Nephilim" (Genesis 6:4), a breed of fallen angel and human that could have been the basis for many, if not all, of humanities ancient myths and legends.
