Two disinfonaut favorites, the “powerful” Joe Rogan and investment broker, author and financial commentator Peter Schiff, known for his bearish views on the US economy and US dollar, talk Bigfoot Porn and Furries in Part 1 and tackle Obamacare in Part 2:
Hey guys! Looks like everyone can relax: The FBI has cleared the agent who shot and killed Ibragim Todashev, the reputed associate of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. I know that we’ve been waiting on pins and needles for their decision and that it could have gone either way. Thanks to the FBI for the unbiased, level-headed investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing in general, and for their bravery in the line of fire in this totally believable sequence of events that doesn’t in any way sound like they the guy for what sounds like a temper tantrum (and bears no resemblance to several similar situations that I’ve assisted in handling that didn’t end with someone getting their brains blown out). Oh – and you guys, he was a mixed martial arts competitor, and as you and I both know, fighting with mop handles is a huge part of every fighter’s arsenal.… Read the rest

But will some documents be kept secret? The BBC reports:
The Vatican Library has begun digitising its priceless collection of ancient manuscripts dating from the origins of the Church.
The first stage of the project will cover some 3,000 handwritten documents over the next four years. The cost – more than $20m – will be borne by Japan’s NTT Data technology company. Eventually, the library hopes to make available online all its 82,000 manuscripts.
The 3,000 documents to be scanned digitally over the next four years include copies of works of classical Greek and Latin literature and mediaeval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts.
The library, founded by a 15th Century Pope, also contains important works of mathematics and science, law and medicine from earliest times up to the present day.
The following is from the new book, THE QUEST FOR GNOSIS, available now.
Mr. Bolelli is the author of the book, Create Your Own Religion: A How To Book Without Instructions. His perspective on life, death and everything in between has always intrigued and inspired me and I just had to have a talk with him for The Quest For Gnosis.
GDR: So… you’re called the “Drunken Taoist.”
GDR: Why is that? What’s the story behind that?
DB: Um… Drunken Taoist I guess, you know how in kung fu movies you’ve got the old drunk guy who looks like crap and always manages to defeat these burly, strong, younger, better, faster attackers and nobody can quite figure out how. The Drunken Taoist is the power of weirdness: It’s an unorthodox approach, that no one can quite figure out why it works, but it does.
GDR: Right.… Read the rest
Is the key to your mind safe? Via the New York Daily News:
German cops are hunting a pair of hypnotist robbers who put their victims into a deep trance before stealing their valuables.
The two women, believed to be Russian, allegedly targeted a 66-year-old in front of a store in Elmshorn, Schleswig-Holstein. And police believe there have been other victims who may not even know they’ve been hit.
The Hamburger Morgenpost reports that the senior citizen was outside an Aldi superstore when she was approached by the duo. “They told her they’d read her fortune, but next thing she knew she was back home sitting in an armchair and all her jewelry and valuables had vanished,” said police spokeswoman Sandra Mohr. She claims that the pair put her into a trance in order to rob her.
We’ve been reporting on the multiple suicides by bankers around the world for a while now, and the rash of seemingly unrelated deaths has the banking industry asking “why?” The bankers’ ubiquitous news service Bloomberg reports:

Last month I discussed some noteworthy etymological connections relating to encounters between the Earth and cosmic material, as well as some of the effects of such an encounter. I mentioned that an important constituent of this material delivered to Earth by way of comets and asteroids was the platinum group metals, or PGM’s and I quoted Soviet biologist Dr. Vasilieyev of Tomsk University regarding the remarkable genetic effects observed in the post 1908 impact environment at Tunguska, Siberia, where and I concluded with this statement:
“. . . incursion of cosmic material into the biosphere can indeed catalyze extraordinary evolutionary changes, which brings us to the threshold of the forgotten knowledge of cosmic alchemy. . .”
The key word here is catalyze, which means to be acted upon by a catalyst, a substance which either causes or accelerates a chemical change without, however, being permanently affected by the reaction.… Read the rest
