Huge crowds flocked to watch a religious leader appear to pull a car - with his penis.

The 'monk' - known only as Penis Baba - can be seen fiddling under his robes while he apparently attaches a rope to his private parts.

After the white rope is tied to the car before he staggers backwards, pulling the heavy vehicle around 100ft.

A video shows hundreds of people gathering around to watch him in Harpur village of Munger district of Bihar, India.

One local said: "The villagers said that Baba had gone away to practice penance and knowledge in his childhood and he has returned after years.

'Baba' said: "It is not art. It is the power of God - the power of devotion.

"Any person can go to any extent by doing devotion to God."

This. Just like the monks who levitate on canes or walk on nails or pierce their skin with giant needles, it's almost always an object-manipulation trick that anyone can learn in a week.

Other than the yoga and martial arts masters, most fakirs are fakers.

>James Wilcox IV, a 28-year-old Army veteran, lives in Tacoma, Washington, as he wraps up his undergraduate degree in history at the University of Washington. His father is a fourth-term Washington state legislator, and his family has owned a farm since 1909, which today specializes in cage-free, organic eggs. According to his friends, Wilcox enjoys debating politics, and he describes himself as a moderate Republican.

>Wilcox rates himself as “concerned” on Global Warming’s Six Americas, and of his fellow Republicans, he says, “I could certainly wish that more Republican politicians were willing to be scientifically literate.”

>Wilcox has company; 31% of American Republicans agree that humans are a major driver of climate change, according to public opinion research by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, which publishes this site.

>While it’s tempting to stereotype one’s political opponents, Wilcox is an example of those who present an opportunity to galvanize bipartisan agreement on climate change. Extreme voices often grab headlines and stoke social media wars, but productive conversations take place more quietly, allowing a glimmer of optimism amid our seemingly intractably partisan politics.

"They cross a dangerous line": Russians warned the US against a blow to Syria

Washington crosses the "dangerous thin line", considering the scenario of the military conflict with Damascus. This opinion was expressed by the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzia.

"It seems to me that they are crossing a dangerous thin line, which is dangerous in and for the world," the diplomat said.

According to him, Moscow has repeatedly warned Washington about the unpleasant consequences of military aggression against the legitimate Syrian government.

"We have repeatedly warned the American side about the possible very negative consequences of the possible use of weapons against the legitimate Syrian government, and especially if the use of these weapons - God forbid, of course - affect our military," Nebenyu Tass quoted.

The representative also recalled that Russian servicemen, unlike their American counterparts, are legally in Syria, at the invitation of the official Damascus.

A former air hostess with 32S boobs says she now identifies as a black "African woman" after undergoing controversial tanning injection treatment.

Martina BIG, from Germany,was born blonde-haired and light-skinned.

She has already spent an estimated £50,000 on cosmetic surgery for her enormous bust which is believed to be the biggest in Europe.

Yet those body enhancements were not enough as Martina bizarrely decided she wanted to change her ethnicity, vowing to get "darker and darker and see what the limits are."

Thanks to a new medical procedure in the US, the ex-flight attendant has darkened her skin and has even travelled to Kenya to be baptised with a new Swahili name.

She said: "One of my Kenyan friends told her pastor about my transformation to a black woman and told him how much I wanted to become a true African woman."

The pastor invited Martina into his church in the town of Nyeri, where she was baptised under the new name of 'Malaika Kubwa', which in the local Swahili language means "big angel".

Martina said: "I'm so happy and proud to be a real African woman."

She claimed to be "surprised how many people know me in Kenya" and that people on the street and in the hotels stopped her all the time for selfies.

According to Martina, who visited Kenya with fiancee Michael, she is becoming more "African" by the day.

Martina BIG said: "Recently, I had been asked several times, whether I noticed that also my facial features become more and more African."

"Since this change is so slow, I did not notice it at first. But after comparing myself to several photos from last year, I also see this change.

"I'm very happy about it and hope that this change will continue.

"It's such a great feeling to become more and more African."

>>
Martina BIG even said that she "knows for sure that that my future children will be also African black."

The German society figure has previously claimed that even her hair has suddenly become "naturally African".

Martina wrote: "I was at my African hairdresser to change my extension.

"After taking out my extension I noticed how much my hair structure of my own hair has changed.

"I compared my own hair with the hair of the other Africans in the salon.

"They are identical."

According to Martina, it is "the clear proof that I'm a real black woman now."

Martina dubbed her transformation into a black woman "an internal one" that changed her whole body.

Martina BIG went from a C cup to her massive 32S boobs, which weigh a whopping 12 kilogrammes.

She says she sleeps on her back and loves to hide her car keys in her cleavage.

Martina, who shares her time between Los Angeles and the Eifel region of Western Germany, says her goal is to hold the official Guinness World Record for having the largest breasts.

>Researchers recently identified an ancient virus that inserted its DNA into the genomes of four-limbed animals that were human ancestors. That snippet of genetic code, called ARC, is part of the nervous system of modern humans and plays a role in human consciousness — nerve communication, memory formation and higher-order thinking. Between 40 percent and 80 percent of the human genome may be linked to ancient viral invasions.

High in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Spain, an international team of researchers set out four buckets to gather a shower of viruses falling from the sky.

Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet’s weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Very little is known about this realm, and that’s why the number of deposited viruses stunned the team in Spain. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet.

Most of the globe-trotting viruses are swept into the air by sea spray, and lesser numbers arrive in dust storms.

“Unimpeded by friction with the surface of the Earth, you can travel great distances, and so intercontinental travel is quite easy” for viruses, said Curtis Suttle, a marine virologist at the University of British Columbia. “It wouldn’t be unusual to find things swept up in Africa being deposited in North America.”

The study by Dr. Suttle and his colleagues, published earlier this year in the International Society of Microbial Ecology Journal, was the first to count the number of viruses falling onto the planet. The research, though, is not designed to study influenza or other illnesses, but to get a better sense of the “virosphere,” the world of viruses on the planet.

Between 40 percent and 80 percent of the human genome may be linked to ancient viral invasions.

Viruses and their prey are also big players in the world’s ecosystems. Much research now is aimed at factoring their processes into our understanding of how the planet works.

“If you could weigh all the living material in the oceans, 95 percent of it is stuff is you can’t see, and they are responsible for supplying half the oxygen on the planet,” Dr. Suttle said.

In laboratory experiments, he has filtered viruses out of seawater but left their prey, bacteria. When that happens, plankton in the water stop growing. That’s because when preying viruses infect and take out one species of microbe — they are very specific predators — they liberate nutrients in them, such as nitrogen, that feed other species of bacteria. In the same way, an elk killed by a wolf becomes food for ravens, coyotes and other species. As plankton grow, they take in carbon dioxide and create oxygen.

One study estimated that viruses in the ocean cause a trillion trillion infections every second, destroying some 20 percent of all bacterial cells in the sea daily.

Viruses help keep ecosystems in balance by changing the composition of microbial communities. As toxic algae blooms spread in the ocean, for example, they are brought to heel by a virus that attacks the algae and causes it to explode and die, ending the outbreak in as little as a day.

While some viruses and other organisms have evolved together and have achieved a kind of balance, an invasive virus can cause rapid, widespread changes and even lead to extinction.

West Nile virus has changed the composition of bird communities in much of the United States, killing crows and favoring ravens, some researchers say. Multiple extinctions of birds in Hawaii are predicted as the mosquito-borne avipoxvirus spreads into mountain forests where it was once too cold for mosquitoes to live.
>>
When species disappear, the changes can ripple through an ecosystem. A textbook example is a viral disease called rinderpest.

The Italian army brought a few cattle into North Africa, and in 1887 the virus took off across the continent, killing a broad range of cloven-hoofed animals from Eritrea to South Africa — in some cases wiping out 95 percent of the herds.

“It infected antelope, it infected wildebeest and other large grazers across the whole ecosystem,” said Peter Daszak, the president of Ecohealth Alliance, which is working on a global project to catalog viruses likely to pass from animals to humans.

“The impact was not just on the animals. But because they are primary grazers and they died off in huge numbers, vegetation was impacted, and it allowed trees to grow where they would have been grazed away,” he said.

“The large acacia trees on the plains of Africa are all the same age and were seedlings when rinderpest first came in and the wildlife died,” Dr. Daszak said. In other places, far less grazing created a hospitable habitat for the tsetse fly, which carries the parasites that cause sleeping sickness.

“These kinds of ecological changes can last for centuries or even millennia,” Dr. Daszak said.

Combined with drought, large numbers of people died from starvation as rinderpest spread. An explorer in 1891 estimated two-thirds of the Masai people, who depended on cattle, were killed.

“Almost instantaneously, rinderpest swept away the wealth of tropical Africa,” wrote John Reader in his book “Africa: A Biography of a Continent.”

With intensive vaccinations, rinderpest was completely wiped out, not only in Africa but globally in 2011.
>>
The beneficial effects of viruses are much less known, especially among plants. “There are huge questions in wild systems about what viruses are doing there,” said Marilyn Roossinck, who studies viral ecology in plants at Pennsylvania State University. “We have never found deleterious effects from a virus in the wild.”

A grass found in the high-temperature soils of Yellowstone’s geothermal areas, for example, needs a fungus to grow in the extreme environment. In turn, the fungus needs a virus.

Tiny spots of virus on the plant that yields quinoa is also important for the plant’s survival. “Little spots of virus confer drought tolerance but don’t cause disease,” she said. “It changes the whole plant physiology.”

“Viruses aren’t our enemies,” Dr. Suttle said. “Certain nasty viruses can make you sick, but it’s important to recognize that viruses and other microbes out there are absolutely integral for the ecosystem.”

Does this mean that Africans can jizz aids across the planet?

Actor, philanthropist and amateur bongo musician Matthew McConaughey is adding yet another entry to his ever-growing resume: Carl’s Jr. voice-over artist.

McConaughey — already the brand ambassador for Wild Turkey Bourbon — is now lending his signature drawl to the fast-food chain’s Western Bacon Cheeseburger campaign, Carl’s Jr. confirmed on Monday.

Carl’s Jr., however, has noted that McConaughey is not technically an “official spokesperson” for the restaurant, despite his first commercials sounding like Carl's Jr. handed him complete and total creative control of the entire project:

“It’s time to answer the call,” McConaughey can be heard saying over footage of the bacon-topped, onion-ring-inclusive burger. “The oozing drips and the smacking lips — the snizzle-dizzle, piggedy-wiggedy buckwild beef, bustin’ straight outta the gate, showin’ it’s teeth like a flavor stampede! Crispety rings, whoa, whoa!

“Takin’ it S-L-O with the Western Bacon Cheeseburger. That’s the call of Carl’s,” McConaughey concludes.

Other, shorter advertisements for Carl’s Jr.’s “Call of Carl’s” campaign have McConaughey uttering such phrases as “sweet tang-a-lang” or “deeelishy-lishy-lishy,” and even “tangy dripping drop-drip-dropping, lickety-split-topping — say pick up the Western Bacon Cheeseburger.” McConaughhey’s voice will also play a “major role” in the campaign’s radio ads, Ad Age reports.

Town Bypasses Constitution, US Citizens Given 60 Days to Turn in Guns Or Become Criminals

As the state promises gun rights activists they’re not coming for their guns, behind the scenes they’re pleading for it to happen. And now the feared gun grab is occurring. Residents in Deerfield, Illinois have 60 days to surrender their “assault weapons” or face fines of $1000 per day per gun.

The gun ban ordinance was passed on April 2nd with residents left with few choices of how to dispose of their valuable “assault weapons.” Upon careful reading of the ordinance, residents will be left with revolvers, .22 caliber “plinking” rifles, and double barrel shotguns to defend their homes and families from criminals who could care less about the law.

Fines for not disposing of the weapons range from $250 to $1000 per day per gun for those who choose not to comply with the city’s ordinance. While a fine may seem reasonable to some, as TFTP has reported on multiple occasions, failure to pay fines always results in police action. It is not far-fetched to predict major turmoil and arrests in the event of non-compliance.

One example of the so-called “assault weapon” is the Ruger 10/22 which can accept magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. Even though the 10/22 is not listed in the list of guns the village wants to see banned, the gun cannot legally be possessed in the village.

Residents have been instructed to either sell their guns, transfer the ownership to someone who lives outside the village, surrender their guns to Deerfield’s sheriff, or begin paying the fines.

>Citing Scalia's ruling
They intentionally twist the ruling to suit their needs. Scalia's riling clearly states that firearms that are "in common use" are protected. The AR-15 is one of the most popular rifles in the country, and it has been for some time.
The only reason district courts have been so bold is because SCOTUS has been terrified of taking any new 2A cases for years now. Once Ginsberg retires we will see state laws getting struck down left and right.
>>
>>244691
Scalia also makes a point of addressing the commonality of firearms at the time the 2nd was written - pistols and muskets.

If we want to hold to his word we need to ask whether a firearm was in common use at the time of the Heller decision. It probably doesn't change much - the AR-15 has been in circulation for half a century now - but we can't twist his words.

That faggot just insulted the founding fathers by implying they didn't have foresight, but they had it enough to get this ungrateful faggot his lifestyle he has. Bet this faggot would have been scalped.
>>
>>244691
>>245139
Scalia's ruling against the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 only struck down the trigger lock provision and denial of handgun registration. It upheld DC's "assault weapon" ban as Constitutional, that includes a ban the AR-15 (as well as a lot of semi-automatic magazine loaded pistols). This is why no one has managed to lift any other municipal or state ban against the AR-15, or any other "assault weapons" ban.

The good thing about the ruling is it upheld a universal right to self-defense that had been pretty much denied since the dawn of the 2nd amendment. For near two centuries it was merely treated as a mandate that the federal government could not disarm the states by disarming their citizens, but the states were free to regulate their defense as they saw fit, as it was deemed a collective right (culminating in US v. Cruikshank). The Heller and Miller cases combined to finally make it an individual right.

The bad thing about the ruling is that it more or less ended defense against government tyranny as a form of self-defense, practically declaring such a concept defunct, and only recognizes the right of personal defense. It thus indirectly denies the state right to defend itself against Federal tyranny through unregulated militia, as well as that of the people. Thus the states and even the federal government can still ban "assault weapons".

We may only need one more SCOTUS replacement to fix that ruling, but the less people who are aware of the current state of the law, the less apt such a case is to come to the court to give it an opportunity to repair that injustice. The people need to be able to arm themselves sufficiently to at least give the government pause, if the 2nd amendment is to continue to act as a check against tyranny. The 2008/2010 decisions got us halfway to the true spirit of the 2nd amendment - it's up to us to push it the rest of the way there. (But of course, we need not to be in denial of the need to do so.)

No company has been more responsible for shaping the modern entertainment landscape than Walt Disney. In 1937, with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, its first feature film, Disney invented the family blockbuster. In 1954, with Disneyland, an anthology series hosted by Walt Disney himself, it became the first movie studio to strike out for the wild west of television. Since then, Disney’s dominance has only grown. Of the dozen films with the largest worldwide box-office take since 2010, Disney released eight.

Those successes, however, belie real danger on the horizon for Disney. In recent years, many of the company’s traditional strengths have slowly turned into weaknesses—like a fairy-tale castle gradually flooded by its own moat.

Take television. Disney has long prospered thanks to the cable bundle, which, like a private-sector tax system, levies a large annual fee on the vast majority of U.S. households. Disney’s most valuable network, the sports juggernaut ESPN, collects approximately $8 per cable-package subscriber a month. No other basic-cable channel makes more than $2.

But the cable business is floundering. Nearly half of adults ages 22 to 45 didn’t watch any broadcast or cable TV in 2017, according to a study by the marketing agency Hearts & Science, and the number of so-called cord cutters abandoning cable is growing by the year. This is troubling news for ESPN, whose daily viewership has declined more than 10 percent since 2011. It’s nearly as troubling for Disney, which makes more money from television than from its movies or amusement parks.

The U.S. film business, meanwhile, has arguably been in slow-motion decline since Dwight Eisenhower’s administration. The typical American bought more than 20 movie tickets a year in the early 1940s, a period in which Disney pumped out Fantasia, Pinocchio, Dumbo, and Bambi in three consecutive years.

That's the second fucking fire in that high rise this year, which means there will probably be an investigation.

And btw an apartment building is not every-man-for-himself economics for you libertarians who want to weigh in. When you have a high rise without external fire escapes or a "smart" ventilation system that can seal all doors and vents instantly upon detecting fire, the smoke from the blaze in a single unit can kill anyone in the floors above, as it did in nyc apartment fires 1998. Some form of fire isolation/mitigation system in high rises is as essential as meat inspection or hospital certification.

But this ISN'T "tu quoque." That would be if the Clintons' building fire actually happened, and if Trump and co. had said (in response to criticism) "But what about their fire?" The same would apply if the Clintons' used Trump's fire to justify their own (hypothetical) negligence.

What's being pointed out in >>244248 is an allegation of a double standard, not tu quoque. Claiming that the Clinton's would have been excoriated under similar circumstances that Trump is not being excoriated under (and perhaps, should be?) isn't logically fallacious in the first place.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Andrew McCabe, the fired FBI deputy director, misled investigators and his own boss about his role in a news media disclosure about Hillary Clinton just days before the 2016 presidential election and authorized the release of information to "advance his personal interests," according to a Justice Department watchdog report.

Hand dryers in bathrooms could be covering our hands in germs and faecal matter, a new study has suggested.


A study by the University of Connecticut sought to discover if hand dryers were helping to disperse germs, or were in fact simply redistributing them.

The paper found that dryers actually spread germs.

Flushing the toilet with the lid open can send faecal particles into the air, where they can linger until the hand dryer is switched on, with the particles heated up in the machine and spat back into the user’s hands.

The hands being wet is a particularly healthy environment for gems to thrive in.

“These results indicate that many kinds of bacteria, including potential pathogens and spores, can be deposited on hands exposed to bathroom hand dryers and that spores could be dispersed throughout buildings and deposited on hands by hand dryers,” the study concluded.

Researchers suggest fitting dryers with HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters, which can reduce the bacterial deposition by four times. Alternatively paper towels are found to be more hygienic, but that option is also less environmentally friendly and potentially more costly. The consequence of hand dryers spreading faecal matter is unlikely to have a serious effect on your health, however, as many day-to-day items, such as mugs and desks, are also covered in germs.

>Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein personally gave the green light for the FBI to raid the hotel room and office of President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, The New York Times first reported.

>Rosenstein oversees special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election. The Cohen raid came, in part, from a referral from Mueller’s team.

>The raid was executed by the office of the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. The man running that office, interim U.S. attorney Geoffrey Berman, is a Trump appointee whom the president personally met with when he was up for the job. Berman also donated $5,400 to Trump’s presidential campaign.

>ABC News reported Tuesday that Berman, however, has been recused from the Cohen matter.

>A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office would not comment on Berman’s role or whether there was an investigation into Cohen at all.

>Trump was clearly furious about the news that the FBI had raided Cohen’s office and hotel room.

>“I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys ― a good man. And it’s a disgraceful situation. It’s a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying it for a long time,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday evening.

>Although Trump has repeatedly declared that he subject to a partisan “witch hunt,” Rosenstein is a Republican. (Trump, inaccurately, has claimed he is a “Democrat from Baltimore” and has considered firing him.) Mueller and Christopher Wray, the head of the FBI, are also Republicans.

>I want to be spoonfed what to think

Centrism is just another word for intellectual nihilism. You, like many other self-described centrists, aren't a centrist at all. You're a pathological contrarian who argues for its own sake, rather than to educate and be educated. You have all of the information you need at your fingertips. You can find data on every single discussion ever had on the face of the entire fucking planet. You can see what the right thinks. You can see what the left thinks. You can see what third parties think. You can form your own sound opinion based on what those with conviction argue, and what do you do instead? You can't even be arsed to do your own rudimentary research to at least be taken seriously in a discussion. Fuck you. Centrists desperately need the bullet.

Calm down pal. I wasn't trying to be spenfood. The info was irrelevent. I was just trying to start an argument about...
Something! Anything. You just had to go and get your pantys in a twist about a delusion you had about me. Maybe you should stay off the Internet pal.

You know why Paul Ryan (and most of the GOP leadership) refuses to let the House consider legislation to protect Mueller, Rosenstein, and Sessions from being fired? Even though Ryan and other leaders are retiring and don't have to answer to the base anymore?

They WANT Trump to flip and fire any of the above, because that's the only way they can impeach or 25A him while saving face as a party, since they all drew a line in the sand a year ago that the GOP leadership would impeach if he fired any of them -- and they can tell the Trump base that they made a public promise by the law that they kept.

On the other hand, if Mueller comes back with a recommendation to impeach or indict, and Trump and the RNC continues to scream Fake News, the Congressional GOP is stuck in a Catch-22 of standing by the President and Party (and Republicans are fucking crazy about Party Loyalty).

The chairman of Sinclair Broadcast Group met Donald Trump at the White House during a visit to pitch a potentially lucrative new product to administration officials, the Guardian has learned.

David D Smith, whose company has been criticised for making its anchors read a script echoing Trump’s attacks on the media, said he briefed officials last year on a system that would enable authorities to broadcast direct to any American’s phone.

“I just wanted them to be aware of the technology,” Smith said in an interview. He also recalled an earlier meeting with Trump during the 2016 election campaign, where he told the future president: “We are here to deliver your message.”

Sinclair is the biggest owner of local TV in the US, and may soon reach 72% of American households if a proposed $4bn takeover of a rival is approved by federal regulators. It is accused by critics of having a conservative bias, which it denies.

The company has been a driving force in the development of a new broadcasting standard known as Next Gen TV, and is one of the first involved in making chips for televisions, cellphones and other devices to receive the new transmissions.

A broadcasting industry group, of which Sinclair is a prominent member, lobbied federal authorities last year to force manufacturers to incorporate the chips in all new devices. This would have created orders for millions of chips and probably new revenues for Sinclair.

Smith said his White House meeting was not financially motivated. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided last November to make incorporating chips voluntary. Sinclair had itself stopped short of calling for compulsory installation but said the government might need to consider this in the future.

>A significant shift in the system of ocean currents that helps keep parts of Europe warm could send temperatures in the UK lower, scientists have found.

>They say the Atlantic Ocean circulation system is weaker now than it has been for more than 1,000 years - and has changed significantly in the past 150.

>The study, in the journal Nature, says it may be a response to increased melting ice and is likely to continue.

>Researchers say that could have an impact on Atlantic ecosystems.

>Scientists involved in the Atlas project - the largest study of deep Atlantic ecosystems ever undertaken - say the impact will not be of the order played out in the 2004 Hollywood blockbuster The Day After Tomorrow.

>But they say changes to the conveyor-belt-like system - also known as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (Amoc) - could cool the North Atlantic and north-west Europe and transform some deep-ocean ecosystems.

>That could also affect temperature-sensitive species like coral, and even Atlantic cod.

No there are none. There is Zero scientific proof that shows that Humans cause man made climate change or that there is a catastrophe waiting to happen.

So far ZERO of the alarmist predictions have come true,

Just take a look at the climategate emails.

There are numerous journals, including those such as Science and Nature, that have published papers supporting the theory of AGW.

>So far ZERO of the alarmist predictions have come true
Many predictions from the 2001 IPCC report, a mainstream view within climate science at the time, have come to pass.

Climategate found nothing of interest.

So what are the odds on climateshill being al gore?
