Sarah McLachlan once said stupidity is when you can’t help it — ignorance is when you choose not to understand something, and I fully agree. While I’m really happy to see the world discover the wonders of Science™, the people that all of a sudden think they are experts never cease to amaze.
Today’s delicious treat of misinformation has got to do with radio waves. The YouTube channel Press For Truth published a video last year with the click-baity title Wireless warfare exposed – Declassified military doc proves smartphones are killing mankind, and it is an excellent example of how having a basic understanding of what you’re reading is essential.

A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting an update from Hank following the disaster that was the “Women Online” panel focused on the harassment and abuse women receive online. Through some sort of cosmic joke, Anita Sarkeesian ended up on the panel and it didn’t take long before she put on a marvelous display of hypocrisy by pointing at a member of the audience and proudly proclaiming that he was “human garbage”.
So why the controversy? The targeted member of the audience was none other than Sargon of Akkad, a famous YouTuber that dissects news and videos pointing out the errors and mistakes made. This criticism presented by Sargon and others is according to Anita plain harassment. I’m not sure if this was an intentional way to get a new victim card from the deck, or just a demonstration of her inability to control herself, but the outcome so far might be worse than the incident.

This is an open letter to the special snowflakes at McMasters University. It is also aimed at PACBIC who released a crackpot statement about the event, demonstrating their lack of common sense and logical thinking. Before you activate your special victim superpowers the next time, a suggestion would be to listen and to actually understand the arguments first.
Watching the latest of Dr. Jordan Petersons talks, a few things became apparent. For starters, Dr. Peterson is a hero. I would even go as far as to say that he is the modern “Tank Man of Tiananmen Square” as he stand up against the tyranny of oppression, fueled by your illogical hate. And he is doing it without poisoning the debate; his arguments are on-topic, sensible and verifiable. When your crew of misfits try to cause disturbance, he keeps talking, maintaining a calm voice, and makes you appear as the infantile children you are.

When using The Microwave to spy, it is advisable to set the timer so that your target won’t hear the ding.
So Brexit happened last year with just above 51% in favor of leaving the EU, and a majority of those being 65 years of age or older. The fallout has already begun, with Scotland likely to push for a second attempt to exit GB in order to remain in the EU, and Northern Ireland isn’t expected to sit idly by while this all goes down.
What I have noticed amidst all this is that most people don’t have a clue what the EU actually is and what it does.
Ironically, Nigel Farage being the puppeteer pushing for Brexit said prior to the referendum that if the remain-side got 52% of the votes, that would be unfinished business and cause for a second referendum, until they were victorious. However, with the leave-side getting almost 52% of the votes and over 4 million people signing petitions for a new referendum, the situation is apparently a completely different one.
