The Known Universe

If only the Romans and Greeks hadn't debased their money and fought endless, pointless wars we would be out amongst these stars now.Unfortunately I suspect in a 1,000 years time some else will be blogging the same lament of the American empire.

How is that Warming thing working out?

From NASA:

The Maunder Minimum

Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715 (38 kb JPEG image). Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.

Copy of the Magna Carta to go on display in the US National Archives

In the year the US brings in the NDAA act they finally relegate the Magna Carta to the museum literally and and in practice.

Clause 13:

NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right.

Cash is Trash

Just as Imran Hosein has said on many occasions cash will be increasingly difficult to transact in, until it is phased out altogether. At this point the banks and government will control what you can buy or sell.
