From an interview accompanying the 2013 release of Delusional Waste

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Michael McCarthy: You’re the face of SPC ECO today, being that you’re the only one pictured in the promo photos and such. Were there always photos of you ever since SPC ECO started or did you prefer not to be seen initially? If you deliberately weren’t pictured early on, at what point did you decide to change that and what prompted the change?
Rose Berlin: I’m in the photos because dad didn’t want to be in them. Dad is old and fat now so probably best he stays in the shadows..lol!

“As Krikorian notes, the Department of Labor has vast administrative power in the immigration…”

Friday, December 9th, 2016

“As Krikorian notes, the Department of Labor has vast administrative power in the immigration process, helping to certify guest worker visas and, depending on the discretion of the secretary, working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Under Obama, the Department of Labor hasn’t co-operated with ICE on enforcement—nor is that likely to change under Puzder, who sees immigrants as having a vital role in the economy. The deeper concern among Trump’s hardcore fans is with the president-elect himself. He campaigned on a promise not to sell out grassroots Republicans at the behest of big donors, as the party establishment has done for years. One such betrayal was the willingness of Senate Republicans, the notorious Gang of Eight, to work with Obama on immigration reform. To those disillusioned Republicans, Trump said: I’m wealthy, so I can’t be bought, and will remain true to my word. But now that Trump is president-elect, he’s appointing a cabinet full of wealthy donors…. It’s too soon to know whether Trump will sell out his base. There was always a good chance that he would disappoint the immigration hawks, given that the Republican Party is beholden to corporations like CKE Restaurants that thrive on cheap labor. And working with Sessions, Trump could still appease this particular faction with symbolic gestures, like ramped up public raids on undocumented immigrants. But overall, Trump’s cabinet picks suggest he could become Coulter’s worst nightmare: an orange, obnoxious Jeb Bush.”

Death Penalty – Props 62 & 66

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

tawnypixie:

Hey Californians, did you know that we’re voting on the death penalty in this election? (I didn’t realize it was on the ballot until I sat down and actually read all the measures, so I thought I’d mention it here.) Not only that, but we’re voting on it twice with Prop 62 and Prop 66 but each Measure does something drastically different!

PROP 62 – DEATH PENALTY. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
– Repeals the death penalty in California
– Changes death penalty sentences into life imprisonment without possibility of parole sentences
– Applies retroactively to existing death sentences
(I’m voting YES on 62 because I think the death penalty is wrong and expensive.)

PROP 66 – DEATH PENALTY. PROCEDURES. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
– Limits petitions for people with death penalty sentences (petitions = appeals)
– Gives prison officials more freedom to develop execution methods
– Basically, makes it easier to kill prisoners faster
(I’m voting NO on 66 because I think death penalty is wrong and expensive and lots of people have been exonerated from death row because of new evidence discovered during appeals.)

There are a lot of other important measures to vote on this year too – give yourself plenty of time to read thru everything!

Please share this post!

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

“I’m very angry. I’m angry that Bobby Newport would hold this town hostage and threaten to leave if you don’t give him what he wants. It’s despicable. Corporations are not allowed to dictate what a city needs. That power belongs to the people. Bobby Newport and his daddy would like you to think it belongs to them. I love this town. And when you love something, you don’t threaten it, you don’t punish it. You fight for it. You take care of it. You put it first. As your City Councilor, I will make sure that no one takes advantage of Pawnee. If I seem too passionate, it’s because I care. And if I come on too strong, it’s because I feel strongly. And if I push too hard, it’s because things aren’t moving fast enough. This is my home, you are my family, and I promise you, I’m not going anywhere.”

Vampires don’t like sunlight but moonlight is actually also sunlight

Tell that to the werewolves.

Moonlight is only about 14% reflected sunlight, with a different spectrum (some wavelengths gets more absorbed than others, some more reflected, etc). If the two spectra of moonlight and sunlight were compared side-by-side with no mention of their origin, they basically appear as two completely different light sources, one peaking at the yellow wavelengths and the other peaking at the blue-green wavelengths.

To summarize; moonlight is not sunlight, it is reflected sunlight with a lot of its information lost or altered.

Does this mean that, with the right set-up, you could make light sources which mimicked moonlight accurately enough that it sets off someone’s lycanthropy? I’m not sure what such a device would be useful for, but it’d be neat nonetheless.

Technically, yes. In practice, whether it’s simple to do so or not will depend on the exact mechanisms that causes the transformation. I suspect the easiest way would be to get a lamp that mimics sunlight and shine it onto a surface of lunar regolith trapped behind a thin layer of transparent material to protect against oxidation.

this is amazing thank you

Okay but consider that the moon and the earth drift apart juuust a little bit each year—assuming that one’s lycanthropy is triggered by the AMOUNT of moonlight since what lore I know of consists of transformation on the full moon—eventually we’re going to be far enough away from the moon that the symptoms of lycanthropy will disappear forever

Actually no! I just heard a bit on NPR about this two days ago :3

The Moon is slowly drifting away, but it’ll eventually reach a static orbit and stop; it’s not going to fly off into space. What will happen though is kinda weird. When the Moon stops drifting away, the Earth-Moon system will become tidally locked. After that point, only one side of the Earth will ever face the Moon again. So it won’t be that lycanthropy will disappear forever; it’ll just only happen on half of the Earth :] :] :]

That raises another question though; will having the full moon always out, even during the day, mean that lycanthropes will always be shifted, or will the direct light of the sun overpower its effects during the day :?

HOLYSHIT, TIDALLY-LOCKED LYCANTHROPY PLANET

THIS IS THE BEST HIGH FANTASY KINGDOM DIVISION IMAGINABLE

THE KING OF ALL WOLVES!!!! A BORDER WITH BORDER CONFLICTS AND ROGUES WITH DUAL IDENTITIES!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH

@phoenix-falls

I am gonna be so sad if I cannot see the moon any more one day

The moon is a beautiful lesbian I want to be able to gaze up at her on cloudless nights

What I took away from this is that Moonlight is basically pirated art that a new artist put through Photoshop and put their own watermark on

“Original moonlight, do not steal”

Not to hijack, but my favorite novel ever, for ever and ever, concerns a world that no longer rotates, where magic rules the night and science the day.

All of tis is beyond amazing and @lies I would love to have the name of that novel.

Jack of Shadows, by Roger Zelazny.
