September 19th; Monday.
"Why eco-alarmists are wrong about almost everything." Prompted by a new bloom of
Australia's supposedly dying Great Barrier coral reef.
September 18th; Sunday. A rather creepy
US Army recruitment ad. Note the puppeteer imagery, with mentions
of "pulling the strings". Isn't the point of secret warfare that you don't advertise it publicly?
September 17th; Saturday. Chess player denies
cheating with help from vibrating beads up his bottom.

Young adults dying in record numbers, but
not from covid-19 /
Italian study finds 94% of vaccinated people have strange blood /
More blood-clot weirdness found in the veins of people dying soon after mRNA vaccination / Meanwhile, Greenpeace founder says that the climate-change story is
based on "false narratives" / Over 50% of babies and toddlers had "systemic reaction" after covid-19 vaccination / US regulator begins to admit fault over

Late software pioneer and "eccentric millionaire" John McAfee has been resurrected -
or so a former girlfriend alleges. He was last seen, dead, in June 2021 in a
prison cell. Here he is in a serious 2017
interview at a Romanian tech conference.
The claim he has come back to life rests on
him supposedly faking his own death. His ex-girlfriend, a bartender in Belize,
says she's heard from him since his body was found in a Barcelona prison cell. Without wishing to
be unkind, she might not be the most reliable of sources. On the other hand, it is the sort
of thing one could imagine that he of all people could have pulled off.

September 3rd; Saturday. All
the things wrong with a
futuristic town-planning project
in Saudi Arabia. Very much the sort of thing I was busily sketching on scrap paper aged 8 and 9.
Another, though less intelligent, critique of the same project from a girl who seems unaware of Jane Jacobs, and who buys
into the global-warming story. A similar vanity project in Egypt, and a short film claiming that the Saudis have been
lying about their oil reserves. Though
nicely even-handed, this oil-reserve piece hugely overestimates Arabia's chance of becoming an
advanced economy without oil. It also makes no reference to the maverick-but-highly-relevant
view that fossil fuels like oil, coal, gas aren't always made of decaying biomass.
September 2nd; Friday. Meet Mark,
Zoe, their daughter Anna and the new 3-month-old grandchild Baby (not her real name). The little one
seems very enthusiastic about her new world. Here's a curious short film about
Japanese bank heists.
September 1st; Thursday. How
