  • Unexpected 7th party candidate Summer Nolan wins U.S. elections.

From Summer[edit]

Summer is generally the most popular of the four Western seasons, and for very good reason. No other season in North America offers its consumers the value of Summer. Sure, Spring may offer its customers a day of occasional warmth and glory, but most of the time it offers nothing more than rainy days and angry thoughts from North Americans. Summer offers day after day of warmth. So next time you're at your local participating Wal-Mart, Lowe's Home Building Center, The Hope Depot, or Honda Dealership, ask about the upcoming return of Summer!

From David Ben-Gurion[edit]

Early life He was born David Gruen in Płońsk, Poland which was then part of the Russian Empire. Shocked by the pogroms and rampant anti-Semitism that plagued Jewish life in Eastern Europe, he became an ardent Zionist and socialist and moved to Palestine in 1906.

He first worked as a journalist and adopted his Hebrew name Ben-Gurion as he began his political career. He was expelled from Palestine, then under the rule of the Ottoman Empire, in 1915 due to his political activities.

Settling in New York City in 1915 he met his future Russian-born wife, Puala Munweis and they were married in 1917, they subsequently had three chidren. The family returned to Palestine after World War I after it had been conquered by the British. I LOVE RALPH NADER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY SEXY RALPH!!!

Quartetarian[edit]

A Quartetarian believes that Phantasy Star is a series of four. They believe that Phantasy Star Online (PSO) is not a Phantasy Star and call it a False Sequel. Quartetarianism is not a religion as it does not appeal to any supernatural or divine force, although it has many rituals and strict codes of behaviour (the head of the Quartetarians is celibate). Quartetarians see Phantasy Star as a narrative field that exists solely for the purpose of maintaining order in the Algol Solar System. Without Phantasy Star, the Algol Solar System would be plunged into chaos.

Many philosophical divisions exist within the Quartetarian faith. For instance, some extreme Quartetarians believe that Phantasy Star 3 is not a Phantasy Star as it does not happen within the Algol Solar System. Another commonly debated issue is whether a Quartetarian should be allowed to go to Ragol. Some say you will lose your connection to Phantasy Star due to prolonged absence from the Algol Solar System. Others say that it is dangerous because Phantasy Star Online might be a computer virus. The opponents of this view say that it is wrong to judge Phantasy Star Online without playing it. Some also believe that the best way to stop the False Sequel from corrupting the Phantasy Star series is to destroy it. However, a Quartetarian has little power outside the Algol Solar System and, to be honest, there aren't many of them, so a crusade wouldn't really work.

There are currently 56 Quartetarians in the Algol Solar System and 1 on Earth. Quartetarians on Earth are completely uninterested in what happens on the planet as they are still the children of Phantasy Star. Quartetarians come from many races and social backgrounds although they are mostly Motavian.

From International caps lock day[edit]

INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY is a parodic holiday invented in 2000 by Derek Arnold, who proclaimed October 22 each year as the day when everyone in the world should type only in caps lock.

How "international" the holiday really is has been contested, since a large part of the world's population writes in scripts which have no concept of letter casing.

Mr. Ghetto[edit]

Mr. Ghetto, The popular black Hip-hopist, began his rise to power in the early 1920's. He is best known for his work on the Beverly Hillbillies' backround music, The theme to the popular TV show "Spice Up THe Night", and many Cds, including "Bibo 5000", "I Can't Believe it's not Butter", and the Norwegian sales-chart topper, "Lewin 666", or, "Blasphemous Hat". He was born in 1912 in a small sweat-shop in northern Norway, the son of poor black immigrants, Violet Ghetto,and Joseph Ghetto (Joseph Ghetto was the owner of Jopseph Jeweling Company, IE, "King Of Bling"). Some people believe this is one of the influences for his raging music. He grew up quickly, and practiced such intruments as the Piano, The Guitar, and the electric tamborine. He soon raised enough money to go to the well-known polish college Gersphishnetr Gespotrocknock (loosely translates into "ghetto slap"), where he put his musical talent to work. He joined his first band there, named "Jingle bells" who jammed with The Beatles occaisionally, and they soon became popular. "I like to play them chrismas songs, yo" He said in an interview in 1940. Sadly, the band broke up in 1942, after the Tragic accident. He then joined the military from 1942- 1984, specializing in Killing The Bad Guys. He began his hip-hop legacy in 1983, with his pioneering CD "Mowing it Ghetto Style", which reached sales of $500,456,678, with more in europe.He created the band Raving white octopus in 1987, and continues creating "Ghettolicious" music to this day. nurewo cn4389 nc439is ncow nowq m sowk bncui vnu59 p[qoij mcowq ncdjwieo bcy97ew mzqokp dnu32 bcuol;a.

Impotence Pimp[edit]

Impotence Pimp is a term for right-wing demagogues who appeal to ineffectual, petty men in desperate need of affirmation. Most often these men are obese, bald, and impotent -- hence the term Impotence Pimp. Many suggest that Impotence Pimps such as Rush Limbaugh care less about politics than they do supporting their own self-destructive lifestyles. Others consider this view to be cynical and argue that Impotence Pimps such as Limbaugh are themselves obese, bald, and probably impotent, and therefore naturally empathize with their supporters.

Federal Reserve[edit]

From Federal Reserve

The FED and Fractional Reserve Banking So called "fractional reserve banking" is fraud and theft, and central banking is the method by which this fraud and theft are cartelized and institutionalized.

Originally, banks were a warehouse, a safe place to store valuables, especially gold and silver money. A fee was charged for the service, and warehouse receipts were issued as a claim ticket on the valuables stored. Because everyone knew that these receipts were "as good as gold", the receipts themselves began to be traded as money.

Bankers noticed that on any given day, only a small fraction of the warehouse receipts were redeemed in money, so the unscrupulous among them began printing counterfeit receipts, i.e. receipts that were not matched by an actual deposit of gold or silver. The bankers were then able to either spend the counterfeit receipts themselves, or loan them out and charge interest. Thus the total supply of money could be enlarged very easily, and was an obvious method to enrich the unscrupulous bankers. The cost of this enrichment was saddled on everyone else, who now found their existing money to be worth less and less as the overall supply of money grew greater and greater.

Bankers coined the term "fractional reserve banking" to legitimize the practice. The more counterfeit receipts that were printed and circulated, the more people would show up to redeem them in gold or silver, the more the actual reserves of the bank would be depleted until, at some point, the bank would be bankrupt and legitimate depositors would be left holding receipts that were irredeemable. A situation where depositors showed up to the bank in large groups to demand their money became known as a ?bank run? or a ?run on the bank?.

Now we will enlarge the scenario to include several competing banks. Each bank begins issuing its own warehouse receipts, now known as ?paper money? or ?fiat money?. Each bank has a strong incentive to create as much paper money as possible, because that is how the bank owner enriches himself. However, if bank #1 creates significantly more paper money than bank #2, then bank #2 will end up holding a large amount of bank #1?s paper money. Eventually it will wish to redeem this paper money for real gold or silver, thus bankrupting bank #1.

The problem, then, as bankers saw it, was to design a system where all competing banks could expand their money supplies in unison. As long as bank #1 has claims on bank #2 that are equal to the claims that bank #2 has against bank #1, then the claims simply cancel each other out. That way, with equal amounts of outstanding debt, theoretically all the bankers could enjoy an endless source of new and additional money, without ever having to redeem much of anything.

Many attempts at banking cartels were implemented, where supposedly competing bankers conspired with one another to print equal amounts of fiat money. These cartels were ultimately in vain, because of the ever-present counter-incentive to break the cartel, print less paper money than the competing bank, and end up with the ability to withdraw real gold or silver from the competitors vault, possibly bankrupting them in the process.

The only way to orchestrate the expansion and contraction of credit and money on a large scale is to make it a matter of law. Private citizens must be forced to accept a single type of paper money in payment of debt, and paper money must be irredeemable for anything of real value. Central governments in all industrialized nations have now achieved just such a situation, in partnership with the large commercial banks. New money is created by the issuance of new debt, and injected into the banking system from a single central location, thus ensuring precisely the symmetrical, uniform expansion of the money supply long desired by the bankers.

The monopolistic power to create new money costlessly, ?out of thin air?, is in fact the power to transfer real wealth away from consumers, and deposit it squarely in the hands of those with the money monopoly, i.e. the central government itself, the large commercial banks, and government contractors.


Explanation of Money Creation 1. The government prints up a piece of paper called a treasury bond. This is simply an IOU, a promise to pay the holder a specified sum of money on a particular date. In this example, let?s say the government issues $1,000,000 worth of bonds.

2. The Federal Reserve prints up a piece of paper called a check, in the amount of $1,000,000 and makes it payable to the government. There?s nothing of real value backing up this check at all.

3. The Fed and the government trade pieces of paper. The Fed now claims $1,000,000 in new assets, because it is assumed the government, with its power to tax, will make good on its debt. The government deposits the check in its own account. The check, drawn on the Federal Reserve, is considered to be good, because remember, the Fed has $1,000,000 in new assets.

4. The government hires employees and buys things with the $1,000,000, and it does so by writing government checks. These government checks are then deposited in commercial banks. For the sake of simplicity, assume it all goes into one commercial bank, which has a zero balance to begin with.

5. The commercial bank now claims $1,000,000 in new assets. The new assets are renamed. Instead of assets, they are now called reserves. According to the rules, this bank is allowed to lend out 90% of this new money (i.e. a 10% reserve ratio).

6. $900,000 is loaned out on Friday for someone to buy a house. This loan is in the form of a check. The home buyer signs the check and gives it to the seller, who deposits it right back into the bank on Monday.

7. The commercial bank now claims $900,000 in new assets. These assets are renamed reserves, and 90% of that, or $810,000 is loaned out. As soon as the $810,000 is deposited back into the bank, you guessed it, the cycle repeats and repeats until there is no more money to lend.

8. The total amount lent out to borrowers is $9,000,000. Add that to the $1,000,000 that it still has on deposit and the total is $10,000,000 of new money. 6% interest on $9,000,000 is $540,000 per year. Not bad considering the bank had $0.00 to begin with.

The ?reserve requirements? are an illusion. In reality, the ?fraction? in our fractional reserve banking system is not 10%, it is 0%.

Gantrithor[edit]

The Gantrithor was once the protoss command ship and under the command of the former executor Tassadar. The Gantrithor was destroyed when Tassadar set the ship on a collision course with the Overmind and destroyed it. Tassadar perished in this crash but in the end saved Aiur by destroying the overmind.

I believe a monument to Tassadar's bravery is long overdue.

Biblical Consistencies[edit]

There are many consistencies in the bible. For example, in Genesis, the earth is created, and later on in Isaiah, the earth is considered to exist.

II Kings 19:35 it says (KJV) "the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses." And according to Isaiah 37:36, "the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses."

In the Song of Solomon 4:5, the speaker says "Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins," and in 7:3 he says "Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins."

Jonah 1:17 says that Jonah was in the belly of the fish for "three days and three nights," and Matthew 12:40 agrees that Jonas was in the whale's belly for "three days and three nights."

Many think the reason for these consistencies is due to the connection between the authors of various passages, and the foreknowledge of prior pieces of scripture. However, some dissent and state that it is pure co-incidence, or a result of divine revelation. Issues of biblical consistency continue to hound Evangelical Christians, who hold that the text is the result of divine revelation, and thus any percieved consistency is merely down to this nature, and not due to the authors having read the earlier version of the bible before-hand.

The consistency in large parts of the Song of Solomon has led some scholars to postulate that the majority of the text was infact written by one author. Likewise, many suspect that Deuteronomy was not in fact written by multiple authors, but rather by a single one, due to the consistency of its narrative style, and other issues of Textual criticism.

Geez, that cracked me up! I thought he was working on summoning the Satanic ROT-13 Monster, myself, but I think the Hell Stooge is more likely, after all. Geogre 04:39, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)
