Suss Cats Cafe

gaycat.jpg


Stupid iPhone tricks.

Dogs just want to be involved.

Watch dogs keeping guard of your treasure.

It's shocking that most men live to age 25.

"We Didn't Star the Fire" was released September 27, 1989.

Cleaning a skyscraper in Dubai after a sandstorm.

Where the watermelons flow like water.

You had one job, Wine Rack.

Blindfolded long jump. Not... not a good idea.

These dogs are professional models but without the attitude.

The Big Score.

If the first bull don't get ya, the next bull will.

Maybe aliens.


They got beef:

Mystery Critter:

This may be a repeat mystery critter. It's a tree kangaroo.

Are you seeing this s***??!?!

10,000 years of selective breeding will make that happen. All I have to say to our two rescue dogs is "guard mommy" and no one is getting close to the wife without going through those two dogs first.

The only two we tried were vanilla bean and the chocolate chip cookie dough, but both were very tasty.

107 So , the pipeline and who blew it up :

first ": CIA warnte Bundesregierung vor Anschlag auf Ostsee-Pipelines

Es verdichten sich die Anzeichen für eine geplante Attacke gegen die beiden Nord-Stream-Gasleitungen. Nach SPIEGEL-Informationen gab es bereits im Vorfeld Hinweise darauf aus den USA. (CIA warned Germany about the attack way way back in the summer..hmmmmm)

second...apparently blowing up the pipeline ("permanent interruptions of gas supplies from Russia") would benefit Ukrainians.

I would like to note that Ukrainians were the first and only yapping about Russia sabotaging its own pipeline.

So...who done it and who supported it. Pentagon/Uke project ? RUssia cutting off own revenue stream ? Aliens ??

Yes. I haven't spit balled some scenarios that are plausible yet. What is concerning me is FJB has been waging a serious war against Russia and blowing up a strategically important assets, both Nord pipelines, has to be seen as a major escalation by Russia. Putin has made major steps towards a full military mobilization with this latest draft and his chattering about using nukes is sounding more and more like he means it. Stockpile iodine tablets is seeming a lot less hysterical and a lot more prudent right now.

We are sliding closer to an all-out total war. FJB is hell bent to make his bones by being a "transformative" president and big part of that is gutting the fossil fuel economy; blowing up these pipelines moves that goal posts a closer.

There's pretty much no chance that the Russians did it. If they did nothing for the next two months, Germany comes crying for energy and they get the end of sanctions, which effectively breaks the NATO operation in Ukraine, and the Germans would pay anything they asked. Now Germany collapses economically this winter, and the EU with it, which leaves Russia with no customers to the west for the foreseeable future.

There are reports of US Navy ships in the area in the last couple of days, which means whoever did it either was them, or ran a risk of being detected by them.

Further, just look at the way DC spokespeople talked about it today. They fully expected everyone to move on to the new status quo, where there was no possibility of resuming the gas flow, without asking any questions about who did it or how. Which is weird since Biden and Neuland are both on video promising to eliminate the pipeline.

169 It makes zero sense for the Russians to do this. They immediately lose significant energy leverage over a chunk of the EU, Germany in particular, a propaganda tool to stir up civil unrest, permanently cripples an income stream, forces them to once again become dependent on Ukraine for gas deliveries now and in the future when things return to business as usual.

It makes lots of sense for the US to do this. The USA immediately deleverages Russia propaganda and shuts down German protests to reopen Nord, demoralizes people to seeing fossil fuels as a solution, forces Russia to use the Ukraine pipeline, possibly creates a market for US gas in the short term, hands the US and EU greens (is there a diff at this time?) a propaganda tool to push for "green energy" because it frees Europe from Russian control.

IMHO, the biggest thing is not radiation, but systemic breakdown. There will be unprecedented panic, even if only one weapon detonates here. Expect government to shutdown internet, banking, maybe cable comms. Utilities, supply chains will crumble. All stores will be looted empty within hours. Marauding murderers will rule the streets (more than they do now.)

And nobody will believe any official comms from the fed govt. If they say the weapon came from X, because Y, and our reponse is Z, nobody will believe a word of it.

252 survival is simple, if you're upwind, and out of the immediate blast/overpressure/debris field. stay in your basement, or crawlspace ling enough for the lighter dust particles to blow dow nwind from you, and for the initial high radiation to reduce. about two weeks. move up to 5 miles away from any blast, stay upwind or any other blast. filter any water through a 8 to 10 foot long sand and gravel filter no less than about a foot in diameter. food is another problem. i cannot do food to well. maybe cans from basements. long pig of the democrat variety is an option in the lean times.

261 The problem with those 'nuke map' sites is that they don't account for terrain, obstructing buildings, etc. which we've known to have a big impact on nuke blasts since Hiroshima. Government has guys investigating this, but they don't share their work for reasons that should be obvious.

I can see Chicago on a clear day, so it's pretty flat here. No help in that kind of terrain.

263 251 IMHO, the biggest thing is not radiation, but systemic breakdown. There will be unprecedented panic, even if only one weapon detonates here. Expect government to shutdown internet, banking, maybe cable comms. Utilities, supply chains will crumble. All stores will be looted empty within hours. Marauding murderers will rule the streets (more than they do now.)

And nobody will believe any official comms from the fed govt. If they say the weapon came from X, because Y, and our reponse is Z, nobody will believe a word of it.

USA to force agreement within NATO and keep Ukraine and all those dirty secrets
Russia to support the price of natural gas market, and to make sure the war is ended with no other options, not just put aside for now
The Euro-Greens to end dependence on fossil fuels and force the great rupture to bring about the millenium
The anti-euro-greens to discredit the current Green dominated governments (requires a lot of good German citizens to freeze this winter)
Turkey to force building that Ankara to Europe pipeline through either Sicily or Northern Italy AND distract the world while invading Greece
Private actors to support spot pricing on natural gas and possibly bring about the WEF great reset
