I hope you like this subject because it is one of my favourites. I am not going to stop posting about it, even when we get wiped out by the next cataclysm. I am aware that I am aware that I am repeating myself, offering scant new information. But I want to keep this running, and present several angles on it.

Many scientists still don't believe that a comet or host of comets hit the North American Ice Sheet about 10,800 years ago, (12,800 bce). But I have looked at this a lot, and I am convinced that it happened - even if megafauna were dwindling for thousands of years before this punctuating emergency. (Same patterned happened w/ the extinctions around 65 million years ago, etc.) Dust and fire storms followed this event for hundreds of years, and it shows up in the geographical layerings of past organic versus dead/inorganic dust, sand and soil.

There were vast floods emanating from the flash-melting ice. An underwater landslide near Northern Europe was probably related to this impact, and/or to the swell of runoff coming down the wide Saint Lawrence Seaway. An area about 50 miles to the north, and 100 miles to the south, of what we know as that seaway today, was swiftly cleared of ice, soon leaving a greening area which was settled by new people. Such a history comports to (flood) legends, history and languages of Native Americans, as I have studied it.

(That landslide, btw, is probably what created the Tsunami which left all the bodies buried on the shores of the Hebrides, (etc.), which have recently been reported. Not certain on this hypothesis).

After the impact of this cosmic barrage, the famous Clovis culture was wiped out, along with most of the prehistoric megafauna and other animals. Starkly inhospitable dust and firestorms blew across the plains to the East Coast, while the sea levels rose up and swallowed ancient ports, boats and settlements, obscuring our own ability to study prehistory in subsequent millennia. Sillier things have happened.

The amazing and perplexing archaeological site in central/SE Turkey, Göbekli Tepe, also offers evidence of this great, Atlantean event. A great flood, associated with the sky. Interestingly, this site lies in the vicinity of where mythical Noah was said to have parked his ark and opened a hamburger stand. When you think about it, it would be perfectly natural that 40 days/nights of rain might hit the Middle East, following such a disruptive explosion of water, dust and storms. Legends of a great flood persist in most civilisations - we just have a hard time conceptualising that the spoken word could have conveyed something that had happened so long ago - but, by now, I am not at ALL surprised that this may be so!

In addition to the vast flood on the NA east coast, (and the N. Atlantic landslide), there was a massive breach unleashing violent floods across what is now the USA Pacific Northwest.  However, there is currently a question regarding the dating of this event, and so the word is still out on this (probable) connexion.  (On the other hand, I have seen the dust/fire storm evidence with my own eyes).

The following article comes from Natural News - a great site for various topics, but it is unfairly biased against liberals in politics. In this regard, it is generally daft as all heck.

Ancient stone carvings depict a massive comet strike 13,000 years ago that nearly made humans extinct


(Natural News) Ancient people left us a diary carved on stone pillars that talked of a cataclysmic asteroid strike 13,000 years ago that caused an ice age, killed the wooly mammoth, and forced us to modernize farming methods. Reading almost like a comic book, the stone carvings found in Göbekli Tepe were translated by scientists to reveal a series of events that changed civilization forever.

Engineers from the University of Edinburgh were studying animal carvings in the Göbekli Tepe in Southern Turkey to see how they related to our constellations. While examining a particular pillar, known as the “Vulture Stone” (also referred to as pillar 43), they found descriptions of what has now been confirmed as a comet impact that occurred around 10,950 B.C. This is around the same time a “mini” ice age started. This mini ice age, called the Younger Dryas, only lasted for a thousand years yet is of particular importance to scientists because of its direct impact on mankind. Evidence suggests that it was during the Younger Dryas that the first Neolithic civilization arose, along with better agricultural methods. An article on Phys.org describes the period’s importance: “The cooling period caused groups of people to band together to cultivate crops, leading to the development of agriculture, which in turn led to huge leaps in technological innovations and societal developments, i.e. Neolithic civilization.” This period has also been linked to the extinction of the wooly mammoth.

After a lot of severe CFS, I defied my dog and pushed myself to go see, "Crazy Rich Asians." "Alpha," was also showing but I forgot what this movie was and that I wanted to see it - so maybe next week when we're all free men again.

Gladly, I got my fill of worshipping celebrity wealthiness years ago and it bored me because all it is is arrested development. Bubbles of postponing reality for as long as possible, at the expense of all the real little people. What was that TV show, with the Aussie guy, all about rich people? Yeah that's so done. Watching all that with a queer aye, I think I figured it all out. Even though the only think that might cure my CFS is RICH, I don't need it, and no one wants to invest RICH in curing me. That's just not how it works. Ergo reality.

So, I really did not flutter along with all the giddy opulence of the movie. Therefore, much of the movie was uninteresting. A lot of it was just a repackaging of Western eltie culture into a Chinese box. Which is sad and same as it ever was. The story/plot was simple, and predictable but not overly so. But, it gets better. I think it is worth seeing - beyond the so-called revolutionary value of an all-Asian cast, which is silly. Several hot babes and dudes, with the two leads, of course, being the most western-style. (Still, not as much so as in similar movies in the past). The main actress was really lovely, and Awkwafina(sp?) was also great. A little problem with the genetics of the faces, as often happens in black films, but still not terrible.

On the one hand, this was a movie about Western culture, now transformed by wealth into Chinese. It incorporated standard, traditional movie roles, motifs and twists - in the standard culture of posh parties and flowery drinks and so forth. This would be a regular rom-com if it weren't for the fact that it is actually a romance with some humour and, oh, everyone is Chinese, woo hoo. But, many of the Chinese were, like, gay and, erm, American, which is actually the main thing that made the movie interesting to me and my forlorne gumptions. lol.

On the other hand, this movie also wanted to touch meaningfully on issues with Chinese culture which, despite the wealth portrayed, remains highly conservative and, "we only like OUR KIND." Yeah, China really has a problem with that, um, xenophobia, or, um, racism - far more than does the USA. It's a problem - and kudos to the movie although the movie meant it more as a sort of family quirk. How special.

The movie also pointed to something that I never hear anyone talk about: How viscious the Chinese can be - towards whomever. It's a characteristic common through history - and I am not being racist here when I say the movie highlighted this additional quirk. BUT. Rich snotty people are viscous everywhere, so, the jury stays out on this one.

The actors in this movie seemed partly immitative of regular western actors, like Shaylene Woodley and her guy friends. Still, Chinese folks seem to be parading as Westerners and, that can't last forever, right? At some point, ebullience takes its culture to where the money is.

I liked this movie, with a B-, considering also that other people would like it more than me - because it is basically just another movie movie, OK? Not too much more except for some great timing and title effects. I have to say that it moved pretty well, even while I wasn't always interested in where it was going.

This movie reminds me of all the Chinese influences in my life, which I guess desrve another post.

Hey. So, yesterday I came upon TWO FUCKING COCKROACHES - all of the sudden and all in one day. I was able to kill one but the other got away. (Last year, there were maybe 7 and I killed ALL of them, yo). I have started spraying Ant/Roach spray, and staring to clean, despite the heavy CFS probs. NOW begins a major effort to CLEAN and KILL everything. I thought I was safe, since the piggish neighbours next-door moved out - but maybe the LL cleaning that house forced all those cockroaches to flee over here! Anyway, now begins this horrid trek of fighting them, which includes making the apt. as cold as possible whenever I can. Not so easy to do in August.

I came home from the movie and, somehow, some kind of tiny insect things were floating at the edges of the water in two bins I had in my sinks. Plus one in another bin. I have no idea if these are fruit fly lava or baby cockroaches or what. Freaking weird. I poured bleach in the water which actually seems to have scant effect against fly larva but idk.

Made a bunch of great pizza sauce yesterday. I have two pizza discs(?!) waiting in my fridge but I think I will wait until Friday when I get a pizza from Papa Murphy's, to use it. I'll have bought mushrooms and more by then. And that will give me a chance to flirt. But this whole BUS thing is so fucked. You know. With my life here. I feel it just slipping into oblivion and it seems that this is the way that people around here expect things to be. Reminds me of some movie. 11:11
