Act of War

The mouth of hell, from the Hours of Catherine of Cleves, ~1440.
The mouth of hell, 27th September 2022.

Update: a suggestion is that methane hydrate forms as a solid plug in a methane pipeline where gas is present but not flowing (e.g. the Nordstream pipelines). If the pipe is depressurised at (only) one end to clear it
what generally happens is the hydrate plug will still melt at the plug/wall junction, but when it does, the pressurised side will launch the plug (five feet in diameter, and the same density as water ice) at almost 200 miles an hour down the pipe towards the depressurised side.

When this plug bullet hits a bend in the pipe — well, it doesn’t stop, nor does it change direction easily. It’s going to make a hole.
Thanks to The LawDog Files for this, which seems more plausible then any warry explanation.

Dirty Work, But Somebody's Got To Do It

 A "stay at home social media activist"? So this is who writes th'Twitters.

"Dr" Carol X Lunz 's own bio is a riot'o'larfs in a small room, but the stuck wedding ring is splendid. Many varieties of ape have evolved the capacity to use simple tools, the Lunzes apparently not. All "Dr" Carol can do is fling a GTFOH at anyone who asks if the sister is married because she is wearing a wedding ring.

Is this a parody account? I think it must be but I remain in hope that I'm wrong.

Do Squareheads Have a Sense of Humour?

September 2018 at the United Nations General Assembly. The Krauts are certainly enjoying a whisk of the Tickling Stick

June 2022 and Boche Economy Minister Habeck is pantomiming like there's no tomorrow. Of the bad economic consequences of current shortages. or of Russia turning off the tap altogether, he says
This is "the best breeding ground for populism, which is intended to undermine our liberal democracy from within," Habeck said, adding that Putin's plans must not be allowed to work out.
Any apparent anger or discontent on the part of the German people must be the effect of "populism" (booo!) propagated by the Putin (he's behind you!) and could not possibly be actual discontent or anger (oh no it isn't!on the part of the German people at the comedians who govern them.

And of course the villain's (booo!) plans will be thwarted, it's just a matter of waiting for the Fairy Godmother to appear at the End.

A Well-Deserved Rest

Manifesting lunacy at a frenzied maximum for any length of time is a draining enterprise. That the Powers That Be have kept it going and steady for two years and more is testimony to an unparalleled Robustitude, Prevailance and lack of Sagacity: but all things have their term and faltering point.

For the next short while, then, we may expect a lull as cesspits are replenished and loins re-girded. And soon, forth into the fray with renewed Persistence!

Inside A Modern Government

A few lines from a Daily Sceptic article on the West's response to Ukraine...
While this strategy may work, I’ve yet to read a cogent defence of it.

In fact, the strategy could have a number of negative second-order effects – i.e., unintended consequences – that haven’t been properly thought through.

As several people have observed, the West’s response seems to have been slapped together on the fly amidst a storm of social media outrage, as opposed to being carefully devised after consideration of all possible eventualities.
...a more concise primer on the Art and Practice of Modern Government would be hard to find.

The quality and competence of the Modern Governor may be gauged from such as
whose interest was clearly not piqued by any notion of assessing Russian strengths, weaknesses, intentions and so forth in the run-up to the war, which had started the previous day.

The declaration that Alphabetti Sphagetti Rights are the crux of Western civilisation, as well as He/him's inability to get the letters right, is eerily reminiscent of the US embassy in Kabul's flying the rainbow flag a few days before the catastrophe in Afghanistan.

For myself, I have grown bone-weary of the Stupid and of their interminable vigour. I am old enough to remember when it was considered a shameful condition - what a fogey!

                          For mine own good,
All causes shall give way: I am in blood
Stepp'd in so far that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o'er

 Macbeth III.4

There comes a point in any putsch where the number of people who cannot afford to see the Rule of Law ever restored begins to snowball, and it becomes a Movement.

Starting from Truddafi, whose unlawful implementation of the Emergencies Act amounts increasingly to treason, there are added the senior officers of the Ottawa police, the RCMP, the banks and financial institutions, and now the rank and file, committing criminal acts in increasing numbers. Criminal either directly or because the Emergency is patently not legitimate.

What is the Cause they embroil themselves in, for what Yawning Heights do they strike out? Nobody knows, not even the Amghar has any real clue: the banners, when and if the delivery man comes, will have sauve qui peut emblazoned on them.

Why Censorship is Necessary and Good

The Ministry of Defence yesterday published this chilling map which is totally chilling and warry, and utterly convincing.

Sinister internet trolls working for Vladimir Putin immediately faked up this fake map to spread distress and mental health.

The box about the arrows, top right, explains that they are Ground Movements, and only the tiny writing underneath gives the game away - "Warning: Ground movement indicators are for illustrative purposes only". But for this, the reader might have thought that the arrows represented some actual war plan or something, and weren't just the work of a bunch of retarded clowns.

This is why Mis- Dis- and Something Else That Begins With M- Information (MDM*) must be erased from the interwebs, and only entirely trustworthy Government and Corporate Sources allowed to post stuff online.

*MDM: a satisfyingly euphonious acronym which improves with repetition; encourages faux-scholarly quibbling about the referents of the different D- or M- gibberish definitions; sounds like a Class A drug or a venereal disease. Works a treat.
