Eggs, Leave Mine Alone, Bill Gates Can Eat All the “Artifical Eggs” He Wants

NOOOOOO, Thanks, Bill and Melinda Gags, if you insist, you may eat them, better yet if you’re so concerned about overpopulation why don’t you just quit eating altogether and save the planet the expense of YOUR upkeep? Human beings are not a burden to the earth, but there may be exceptions to this truism…….it seems you are out to prove that you and your kind are a boil upon the butt of the solar system, so sad to watch your lunacy roll out and flow over the world through the corporate owned media……but maybe not so loony? Hummmm? Just think of the profits in all that “egg goo”! Now that’s brilliant beyond brilliant!

Why Is ‘New Zealand and US Tsunami Test’ Gone Viral at This Particular Time?

“WHAT?  Everybody’s thinking it, I’m just saying it!” (Pirates of the Caribbean)

 

WHO? wants this story EVERYWHERE?

 

WHY?

 

Implications For Fukushima? The US And New Zealand Secretly Tested The First Tsunami Bomb Posted on January 3, 2013 by SilverVigilante

[…] The tests demonstrated that a series of ten large offshore blasts could potentially cause a 33-foot tsunami to destroy coastline.

Operation “Project Seal” has been top secret, and the device was a cousin of sorts to the nuclear bomb. Around 3,700 bombs were exploded during the tests, leading off in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, in the vicinity of Auckland.[…]

 

 

New Details Emerge on World War II ‘Tsunami Bomb’ Project By Patrick Goodenough January 3, 2013

[…]The aim of the project, in the dry language of the archived documents, was “the investigation of the potentialities of inundation by means of artificially produced tidal waves for offensive purposes” – in other words, to see whether a bomb or series of bombs could generate a tsunami capable of wreaking havoc on an enemy coastal city.[…]

[…]Thomas Leech, an Auckland University professor seconded to the army, carried out tests to find out what shape and size of bomb or series of bombs, detonated in water of what depth, would have the desired effect.[…]

[…]Leech concluded that 2,000 tons of high explosive, divided into ten equal amounts and detonated as a group around five miles offshore in a location where the seabed was favorable, could potentially create a wave of 30 to 40 feet.

The papers do not name a target for the envisaged weapon, but when the New Zealand government first unlocked the files in 1999 an 87 year-old survivor of the team said it was obvious to those involved that the aim was “to flood Japan.”[…]

[…]In 1950 secret reports were still being produced in New Zealand about the World War II experiments. Leech in one document discussed the possibility of having some of his top students work on filling in some of the gaps left in the earlier findings, under the cover of regular oceanography and wave studies.

The papers do not indicate whether that ever happened but Leech left the university that same year and returned to his native Australia. He was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for his secret research on a weapon, and died in 1973.

In 1961, the U.S. Navy motivated a request for the final “Project Seal” report to be downgraded from “secret” to “restricted” by arguing that the data would be “extremely helpful” in military studies being carried out.

“Project Seal” is back in the spotlight because of the release of Secrets and Treasures, a new book by New Zealand author Ray Waru, based on a two-year trawl though the New Zealand government archives.[…]

 

 

AlterNet / By Laura Gottesdiener Researcher: U.S. Tested and Perfected a “Tsunami Bomb”

[…]”It was absolutely astonishing,” he (New Zealand author Ray Waru) told the AFP. “First that anyone would come up with the idea of developing a weapon of mass destruction based on a tsunami … and also that New Zealand seems to have successfully developed it to the degree that it might have worked.”[…]

Interesting bit of trivia the author threw into the story;

[…]Tsunami Bomb later became the name of a short-lived California punk band in the late ’90s and early 2000s.[…]

‘Tsunami Bomb’ In Development During World War II, Documents Note The Huffington Post | By Meredith Bennett-Smith Posted: 01/02/2013

[…]The tsunami-as-weapon idea had been floated even earlier than 1944, according to The Herald, which reported that they considered sending Leech to Bikini Atoll to watch the early atomic bomb tests.

Neil Kirton, a former colleague of Leech, said that, “Whether it could ever be resurrected … Under some circumstances I think it could be devastating.” (This quote has since surfaced on various conspiracy theory blogs. This link supplied by author Meredith Bennett-Smith)

I wonder why she felt that was germane to the story, oh well, it is interesting that the information has been kicking around the Internet for years and just NOW it’s coming to light….and the link mentions Tom Bearden, Lt Colonel US Army (Retired). Ane Congressman Nick Begich Sr. and US House Majority Leader Hale Boggs who disappeared in Alaskan plane crash.

Hummmmm…….WHAT does that mean? Anything? Nothing?

Ms Bennett-Smith also sees fit to close her article with this unconnected paragraph;

[…]The news of “Project Seal” follows renewed interest in a top secret plan to detonate an atomic bomb on the moon Ms Bennett-Smith’s link to her article 11/28/2012 . That plan, researched during the Cold War, was designed as a show of force to the Soviets, who were fresh off their Sputnik triumph.[…]

 

which, again, I have to question her judgment on how that belongs in this story.

(I am now even more wondering if there is not a concerted effort to viralize this story.What?Who?Why?)

And in closing this running account of some of the articles published on this viral story I post one more and notice that the photograph used to illustrate their version.

U.S. and New Zealand tested top secret ‘tsunami bomb’ during WWII — like something out of ‘James Bond’ by Erik Ortiz/NY Daily News, Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Caption under photograph used to illustrate;

Waves come ashore in Cannon Beach, Ore., in March 2011. In 1944, the United States partnered with New Zealand to test man-made tsunamis, according to New Zealand author Ray Waru.

[…]It was a bombshell experiment … that ended up a wipeout.

During World War II, the United States and New Zealand reportedly ran tests of a so-called “tsunami bomb” — in which explosives were launched into the Pacific waters in the hopes of creating waves capable of destroying small cities.[…]

Me thinks we should all be wary and look around us and see what other story(s) might be getting swept away as a result of this loud sensational story.

“Hey, Hey! What, What!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Cannot Modern Man Accomplish? BIG Science, BIG Ideas Revealed in Stories, Parables, and Fiction

I wax philosophical here as a very limited small minded inquirer into the ‘What Cannot Modern Man Accomplish? BIG Science, BIG Ideas Revealed in Stories, Parables, and Fiction’ and I restate the old wisdom that Fact is stranger than Fiction.

I believe that Fiction being organized into a coherent story with beginning, middle, and ending is much easier to communicate through than Facts which are patently harder to examine, quantify, and know as a mathematical set with anything like finality and confidence. And this is why human beings love stories. The best fictional writers always draw upon reality and what is possible, weaving their stories together with these threads of genuine universal truths.

The greatest story teller of all time, Jesus Christ, communicated genuine universal truths to his disciples through plain speaking, but through Parables did he communicate unto the crowd.

One example of a Modern Man as story teller of genuine universal truths, Michael Crichton, illustrated and illuminated BIG Science, BIG Ideas, through his fictional writings as well as his factual essays and lectures which are found all over the Internet. I mourn the loss of his revelations and high abilities to communicate the strangeness of technological advancements to the crowd through his fictional writings.

I wonder whether Crichton knew of the historical archival records out of New Zealand that nonfictional writer Ray Waru revealed in his book, Secrets and Treasures:  Our Stories Told Through the Objects at Archives New Zealand.

Crichton, who died in 2008, was an avid researcher and deeply interested man of wide education so it is possible that he could have come across something like  ‘Project Seal’ and or the archives which were written about in this article;  Tsunami bomb NZ’s devastating war secret By Eugene Bingham 5:01 AM Saturday Sep 25, 1999

Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945.

Professor Thomas Leech’s work was considered so significant that United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb.

Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Papers stamped “top secret” show the US and British military were eager for Seal to be developed in the post-war years too. They even considered sending Professor Leech to Bikini Atoll to view the US nuclear tests and see if they had any application to his work.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1Treasures: Our Stories Told Through the Objects at Archives New Zealand&objectid=14727

Whether he had knowledge of those archives or not Michael Crichton wrote a fictional account in his story of a plot to use a tsunami making device for a political end in his 2004, Science Fiction, Techno-thriller, Dystopian Novel, State of Fear.

Overview from widipedia.org;

State of Fear is, like many of Crichton’s books, a fictional work that uses speculative science and technological innovations as fundamental storyline devices. The debate over global warming serves as the backdrop for the book. Crichton supplies a personal afterword and two appendices that link the fictional part of the book with real examples of his thesis.[…]

[…]In the finale of the story, the group travels to a remote island in the Solomons to stop the ELF’s “piece de resistance”, a tsunami that will inundate the coastline of California[…]200px-MichaelCrighton_StateOfFear

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Fear

Now my emphasis in this post is not the debate over global warming and I will reserve that aspect of the novel for another time. I rather want to state the obvious fact that Michael Crichton has demonstrated in his writings that he was very well informed about scientific and medical research and that he wrote his novels with well documented background material as inspiration for them.

Despite their fabulous entertaining aspects Crichton’s writings contain reams of facts in the areas of science and politics and history all into the mixture of his novels that serve as the basis of further research and inquiry into the marvelous What Cannot Modern Man Accomplish.

Michael Crichton because of his vast intellectual honesty and brilliant mind was very much a thorn in the side of those who would politicize science, his voice is greatly missed, especially now that things such as ‘Project Seal’ are becoming widely known. I close this post with the Author’s Afterword/appendices from wikipedia;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Fear

[…]In Appendix I, Crichton warns both sides of the global warming debate against the politicization of science. Here he provides two examples of the disastrous combination of pseudo-science and politics: the early 20th-century ideas of eugenics (which he directly cites as one of the theories that allowed for the Holocaust) and Lysenkoism.

This appendix is followed by a bibliography of 172 books and journal articles that Crichton presents “…to assist those readers who would like to review my thinking and arrive at their own conclusions.” (State of Fear, pp, 583).[…]
