Out of the Blue

So it's September already? This seems especially distressing here in the BlueTower, since it serves as a reminder of how our moving process has dragged on, as we started gearing up to move at some point in January. How protracted this has become is in even stronger focus, since this is also the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S.A., which marks the unofficial end of summer. The good news is that we are close to ready to put the house on the market, but there's even more downside, as the house we were most excited about possibly buying is now listed as "pending," so our delay has probably cost us this opportunity.

So Alex Jones was right again?

Um, it's been known for a couple decades that drugs have been entering the water supply via sewage treatment and other means. Here's an article from 2008, for example.

You need to consume a better variety of media.

And for those of you who want a good laugh, John Oliver gave Alex Jones the treatment a couple of weeks ago.

that segment really exposed jones as nothing but a snake oil salesman scamming the idiot right wingers. it's really somewhat brilliant - he feeds and confirms their paranoia and they're 'supporting' the cause by buying his products. i had no idea he sold his own line of household goods until oliver's segment. apparently the products are his primary business, but no one bought them until he started spewing the conspiracy theory bullshit. i'm pretty sure he doesn't believe what he's spewing, he's just happy to take their money. 21st century version of a faith healer/televangelist.
