The End of a Fractal



Scientists were mystified when a fractal calculation abruptly stopped, revealing the first known appearance of the end of a fractal pattern. Strikingly beautiful, the magnificent discovery appears after a couple minutes of the gif above.

The discovery is expected to go a long way toward discovering the end of Pi, the biggest number, and where exactly the sidewalk does end.

A live condom, before harvesting and processing.



Though the condom is functionally extinct in the wild, condom farms across the globe are going strong with an estimated larval population in the billions.

The typical condom will shed its skin 15 times through the larval stage, allowing for over a dozen sheaths to be collected before the condom is either allowed to mature as breeding stock or slaughtered for its meat which can be found in “Chicken” nuggets and Spam.

Shed skins undergo a process called “Encondomization” once harvested in which the reservoir tip is sewn on by hand, the condom is dipped in lubricants or spermicidal jelly if applicable, and then rolled up and packaged. The process dates back to Ancient Rome where condom farming began, specifically in buildings known as “Condominiums”. One such condominium is still cranking out the product, having been in continuous operation since approximately 160 B.C.

You can still find it at 00186 Piazza di Montecitorio, Rome, Italy. Cicero’s International House of Condoms now features a museum on the history of the condom and is open to the public. FIJMU followers can get a discount, just ask for Enrico.

An Alex Jones Thanksgiving...



Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Yep, Jeb Bush must be dipping into the holiday liquor a bit early

Why would our President close our Embassy to the Vatican? Hopefully, it is not retribution for Catholic organizations opposing Obamacare.

The Corporate Bully...

The Corporate Bully Whose Front Groups, Willful Distortions and Hate-Mongering Has Poisoned U.S. Politics
: Meet Richard Berman

November 24, 2013 |
“Why don’t we know who one of the most powerful people in America is? What he has done? Why '60 Minutes' called him Dr. Evil?” asks Saru Jayaraman, a leader in a growing national movement of restaurant workers demanding better pay and working conditions.

Dr. Evil is Richard Berman, a Washington-based lawyer-turned-hitman for Big Food who pioneered and still deploys many of the most intentionally deceptive, inflammatory and anti-democratic tactics used in corporate propaganda campaigns today. For nearly four decades, Berman’s attacks have tried to smear, discredit and destroy public-interest causes and groups by a toxic brew of industry front groups, distortion-filled attacks, ridicule and bullying to stoke prejudice and hatred as a means of turning the public’s attention and regulators away from his paymasters’ business practices.

Take his effort to cripple the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and defame the character of its CEO, Wayne Pacelle. He ran a television ad during the 2013 Academy Awards telling people not to give to HSUS. He created a YouTube video viewed 1.7 million times calling Pacelle “the Bernie Madoff of the charity world.” He set up a non-profit front group called Humane Watch to undermine donations intended for the HSUS and a website attacking its funding. He even threatened the Better Business Bureau to drop HSUS' accreditation under the business group's Wise Giving Alliance, and then attacked BBB when it refused to do so.

Astute observers have concluded that Berman is guilty of the sins he regularly accuses others of. Legitimate watchdog groups, such as CharityNavigator.org, have characterized his web of non-profit front groups, which take in millions in tax-deductible corporate donations, as the fake charities. Tax law experts contacted by Bloomberg.com said his operation was comparable to Madoff’s, a shell game of financial transfers enriching Berman that likely violated tax laws. Investigative reporters have even traced e-mails from front groups who deny they’re working with him back to his office.

This man is the ground floor of the Grand Central Station of Right Wing politics and it's marriage to rampant, regressive American corporatism.

Mama Mia...

Would think not...
