I want to say he's referring to one of two things: I believe scholars generally agree that the Pentateuch (first 5 books - Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Leviticus and Numbers) were primarily authored (or at least stylized) by one person. This is probably dated to around 500 BC. The other is the work of St. Jerome. Without looking it up I believe this was around 450 AD. Or he's just making shit up.

NJ - you have some overlap with me musically. You might like this song. "Missing Time" by MDFMK. The song was actually never finished and officially released, abandoned at a demo stage. A proper drum track was never recorded and only a click track for it exists, and the singing - especially in the last minute - sounds like a gang of Muppets. But I think the song itself is fantastic. I have no idea why they ditched it. youtube. com/watch?v=4e6H3bboKKU

Former Secretaries of State Madelaine Albright, George Schultz and Henry Kissinger gave testimony today at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing at the Capitol. When the rather advanced in years Mr. Kissinger took the stand, members of Code Pink rushed him and tried to "arrest" him and charge him with war crimes. "“Vietnam! From 1969 to 1973, Kissinger, working for Richard Nixon, oversaw the slaughter in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, that led to the deaths of millions — millions of people. Many thousands more died from the effects of massive doses of agent orange and from unexploded bombs that covered the countryside!” a protester shouted. “Chile! Henry Kissinger was one of the principle architects of the coup in Chile on September 11th, 1973…” Chairman John McCain summoned Capitol police who, um, showed them the way out.

Jimmy McMillan, who ran for governor in 2010 as a candidate for the "Rent is too damn high" party, said Tuesday he's facing an eviction notice that says he has to leave his rent-stabilized Manhattan apartment on St. Mark's Place by Feb. 5. McMillan filed papers in federal court in Brooklyn last week seeking a stay of the eviction notice. His attorney has filed with a state appeals court as well, seeking a stay of the eviction order which stems from a dispute in housing court. McMillan's attorney, John DeMaio, said Lisco Holdings had brought a case against McMillan a couple of years ago. In the course of dealing with that issue, DeMaio said McMillan's rent became overdue. He said a judge recently refused to allow McMillan to pay a sum that would have covered most of the amount due and then make up the rest and instead issued the eviction order. He is appealing that refusal.

A Spokane, Wash., resident named Lisa Brown claims that, after she called Comcast to cancel her family’s cable, her husband’s name was changed from Ricardo Brown to “Asshole” Brown on her most recent cable provider bill. Apparently, Lisa Brown called to cancel the cable portion of the bill because her family was experiencing financial difficulties and she wanted to cut costs. She was — of course — transferred to a retention specialist, who tried to persuade her to sign up for a new two-year contract. When the specialist proved ineffective, she was charged a $60 cancellation fee. While Jenni Moyer, senior director of Comcast corporate communications, said she couldn’t verify that timeline, she did confirm to Yahoo Tech that the incident happened. She also offered an apology.

They seize on the fact that his weight at death was 258. They ignore the fact that his weight on admission was 195 and that he gained all that weight via fluid retention during his nine days in a coma. They seize on his enlarged heart muscle. They ignore the fact that his arteries were clean as a whistle and the issue was caused by a perhaps decades long viral infection. Stupid people repeating stupid. It's what's for dinner.

Mark Shrime, a Harvard medical researcher - conducted an experiment. He wanted to see how easily it was to publish nonsense in a medical journal. As it turns out, it's not very hard. He used a random text generator to write the paper, and submitted it to 37 medical journals. 17 accepted it for publication. The article is entitled “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs?” and its authors are the venerable Pinkerton A. LeBrain and Orson Welles. The subtitle reads: "The surgical and neoplastic role of cacao extract in breakfast cereals". Several have already typeset it and given him reviews, as you can see at the end of this article. One publication says his methods are "novel and innovative"!. But when Shrime looked up the physical locations of these publications, he discovered that many had very suspicious addresses; one was actually inside a strip club.

Apple Inc. posted the largest corporate profit in history in Q414 - just over $18 billion. The previous record was held by Exxon in 2012. The company is now worth $650 billion and holds $142 BILLION in cash reserves. People here don't know what to make of this. They are clearly a corporate behemoth and make gobs of money which most people could never conceive of. They should hate them. Yet the very same people who should despise Apple also gobble up their products readily because they love them so. How do they reconcile this? Why isn't Apple hauled before Congress for a public flogging the way other corporate giants - especially oil companies - are? Why isn't everyone talking "windfall profits tax"? Come to think of it, most people think "windfall profits" means "really big profits". So I guess I shouldn't expect much from anyone.

I wasn't referring to a lack of trust and openness. But IMHO anyone who would cold-call a profile across the country and fly to meet them is nuts. A friend or even someone you'd chatted quite a bit with is another matter. What I did not include in my initial post was language from their profile which would have been useful. "Trying to convince him...not sure it's going to work" and "new to all of this". That's simply icing on the cake.

Maybe the driver missed an express mail package or something important the day before and felt it urgent that they deliver it asap. But that's probably not what it was. Apparently some time ago (over a year) the USPS contracted with Amazon to make Sunday deliveries, which fedex and ups do not do. This is apparently profitable for the postal service, or so they say. Am I the only one who didn't know about this?

Remember this story? Guy was back in court Friday. Follow up at the end. This is one of the most fucked up stories I've ever heard. I wonder if there is a charitable site to get this poor guy a lawyer or something? In 1987, Carnell Alexander of Detroit, MI, and his girlfriend broke up. She ended up pregnant (by another man) and delivered a baby. She was struggling and didn't (at the time) know who the father was. She applied for state benefits for her and her child but was told she needed to name a father. So, she named Carnell Alexander. A paternity suit was filed against him and a summons delivered to his last known address (his father's house). He wasn't there to receive the summons, because he was actually in jail for something relatively minor he had done when he was younger. The court made a judgement against him (apparently unaware that he couldn't attend due to already being in jail) and began ordering him to pay child support. In 1993 he was pulled over for a traffic violation and a warrant for his arrest for nonpayment of child support came up. He was completely unaware of this situation. He went through quite an ordeal to track down the woman and eventually won a court-ordered DNA test, which proved he was not the father. The state then went after her - and HIM - for fraudulent benefits paid to her and her child in the amount of $60,000. For reasons that only an omniscient being would know, the courts forgave her $30,000 share but refused to let go of his, and slapped a $30,000 order against him to repay benefits to the state of Michigan. As of 2014 the state continues to garnish his meager minimum wage earnings to collect their $30,000 (plus over 20 years of interest) from him for fraud he had no part in for a child he didn't know existed and didn't father. His August application to the courts to plea to relieve him of his obligation was again denied, and he was admonished by the judge for "wasting the court's time". Attorney Cherika Harris saw his case when it got attention last fall and took him on pro bono. Facing a new warrant for his arrest, he turned himself in last Friday. The judge released him and delayed his hearing for a month to give his attorney time to prepare a defense. That this case continues blows my mind.....

A glimpse into some of what I do in my work. I didn't have anything to do with this case so I can post on it. BOSTON (CBS) — A Framingham pharmacy linked to a deadly nationwide meningitis outbreak used dozens of fake names like “Bud Weiser,” “Jennifer Lopez” and “Filet O’fish” on prescriptions to defraud the federal government and avoid regulations, officials allege. Fourteen people who worked at the New England Compounding Center were charged for their alleged role in the outbreak on Wednesday. Tainted steroids manufactured by the pharmacy were blamed for a 2012 outbreak that killed 64 people, and sickened hundreds more. “Harry Potter,” “Baby Jesus” and “Chester Cheeto” were just some of the fake names used, according to investigators. “All names must resemble ‘real’ names… no obviously false names!” an email from co-founder Barry Cadden in May 2012 reads, according to the indictment.

Got up at 4:50 intending to be home from the gym in time for a pre-work bike ride, but it dumped rain while I was there. So - early start to work today.

I could have put it in the Bitchfest but since I don't really know her, it's more like "just interesting" to me. My grandmother's youngest sister has died. I don't think I've seen her since 1999 when my grandfather died, and I didn't know her at all. But what is interesting is that she was the last of my family driven from their land and fled the Soviet Union in 1925. She was just a baby but the last of my family born overseas that came here as refugees. The end of an era, of sorts.

Happy birthday to both of you! This coming Saturday is a multi-birthday of sorts in our family. Mrs. VA's stepmother is 60. My father is 69. My grandmother would have been 95.

I'll answer one of your questions because I think more people should know it. The vaccine/autism hoax was created in 1998 by a British doctor named Andrew Wakefield at the behest of legal clients interested in pursuing lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers. He was caught, discredited, and barred from practicing medicine.

There is no value in arguing with someone who is unwilling or unable to understand and consider the arguments made back to them, whether they be reasoning or refutation. You're like arguing with a radio station.

Now you are just trolling. You are just posting as much outrageous and unsubstantiated crap everywhere you can, including threads with no relevance to your topics. You can barf out your crap in 30 seconds and laugh while people spend 15 minutes gathering the information to refute it. You're either a troll of the worst kind or a blithering idiot. Either way, you've proven that you are not worth having any conversation with.

Some people just invite every profile they can find to their groups, irrespective of distance. We get those too from across the country. While I normally just ignore them, one invited over and over for months. They were in Illinois or something - and I wrote asking why they were inviting us over and over. They said "sorry - didn't realize we were repeating". How about why did you invite in the first place??

The material is described as "brine". Brine is saltwater. By definition. What else is in there would be nice to know. Oil? I doubt it, beyond traces. The parties involved havent said? Or the oft-repeated article didnt say? The article also said that brine is toxic. Brine in and of itself is not "toxic" in the sense you and I think about. More than likely it also had some flocculant polymers in it. How much is a good question, but it's doubtful it's a lot. Can cause local goopiness but is generally not harmful, although enough of it can stick to fish gill and another smother them. My point wasn't whether or not it's a mess. My point is that none of this is anything like what people here think it is. Fun fact : my very last product as a chemist was an oil drilling cationic polymer for the North Sea. Internally, it was called "Voltaire".

It contains how much? The solubility of oil in water - especially brine - is practically zero. I know what you've read in the news reports. It's panicky crap written by people who don't know what any of this is.

It doesn't matter what was spilled? You think it's "spin" to point out that your purported 3 million gallons of toxic waste is actually salt water? You think an acre of land is fouled by less than a gallon of oil? Could you possibly have crammed any more ridiculous statements in just those few lines? Why is it "spin" when I know what I'm talking about and you don't? Do you even know what "spin" is???

"You're the expert you would know more than me about toxic waist." I'm not the expert, but I know what saltwater is, and I can do math. Toxic waist can be averted but cutting back on Twinkies.

3 million gallons of salt water is a cube approx. 11,340 cubic meters, or the discharge of the Missouri river in that neck of the woods in approximately 15 seconds. This is 0.0175% of the daily flow of the Missouri River. Do you really think that 0.0175% of the Missouri River's flow being saltwater for one day is going to cause massive destruction to the river?

"Now this waste was not oil" That's right. It was brine, also known as "salt water". "possible deaths from toxic contamination of the soil" How many people do you think will die as a result of a salt water leak?

A poll has shown that substantial numbers of Muslims in the Middle East and North Africa believe that the attack on Charles Hebido in France was not, in fact, conducted by Muslims, but instead by "shape-shifting Jews" as part of a plot to make it look like Muslims are violent. Many people were of the opinion that Jews had staged the series of deadly terror incidents to make Muslims look bad, though some added further ideas. “One person told me that they weren’t just regular Jews that were doing this but in fact but a race of magical shape-shifting Jews that were master manipulators that could be everywhere at the same time,” a pollster said. The belief that Jews have supernatural abilities to carry out their wicked plans is not uncommon in the Middle East. In 2013 during a speech to religious students, Mehdi Taeb, who headed a think tank and was considered close to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, said that Jews are powerful sorcerers who have used their abilities to attack Iran. He noted that while “the Jews” had yet to unleash their full powers, their abilities were negated after they tried to use magic to interfere with the Iranian elections of 2008 and 2009.

What I find amazing about the halfwits of the fora is just how unfazed they are after making fools of themselves. You'd figure after going off on a wild story and being busted as a know-nothing, liar, or whatever, that they would have some degree of shame as a result. Nope. They just go BACK to posting their stuff ONLINE like they've been somehow vindicated.
