What do you believe in?

Recommended Posts

Yes, but does the "ignoree" know he's being ignored? Is there some notification that is sent that tells you that you've been put on the ignore list by someone?

Am I being ignored? :worry: I guess if you don't respond it means I am. :D

Oh hush. I will let you know if I have to "ignore" you. laugh.gif

^Cheers to good Saint Ignora. :)

In some ways it's tantamount to "nanny nanny boo boo" but in some cases I think it's absolutely necessary. Not because of any desire to hide uncertain truths but rather to not have to read the inanities of certain members of this board that bring nothing to the conversation but nonsensical bullshit.

Cheers. Indeed I never Had to use it up until oh, a couple of years ago during the election...and I find it swell. Only thing is you Have to log in to use it. But well worth it for as Silver said ...inner calm. B)

Easy Money

Lots of people believe in that nowadays, because the tradeoff is true dignity.

My brother-in-law still thinks his dad (a doorman/groundskeeper/floorsweeper) was an embarrassment, but I thought he was one of the most dignified people I'd ever met, even if his shirts did have holes in the collars (which was something that disgusted my own brother). He worked hard, was paid little, helped others with what he had and slept well at night until his sons (my husband's brothers) mistreated him. He used to say "employers only give you money in your right hand if they know they can take it right back from your left hand" and that pretty much sums up the whole situation, seems to me.

Easy money? Easy come, easy go ... because true Dignity, like courage, is connected to life, and has pretty much lost its value nowadays.

Among most everybody, that is. <_<

Reminds me of something I came across today that was posted 2 weeks ago on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeiBX6SPd9E.

This was my grandma's dedication song to my grandad at his funeral. Somebody had beat his face in with a baseball bat. I think it was a drug deal gone wrong.

Danny, once there's finally consensus over what a viper actually is, it becomes possible to turn over their nest(s) ...

... but Truth is, in this world (with growth and death) vipers will always exist. :(

Alert: Terrorists look to implant bombs in humans US warns airlines: Terrorists interested in surgically implanting bombs in humans for attacks

Eileen Sullivan, Associated Press, On Wednesday July 6, 2011, 9:44 pm EDT

"WASHINGTON (AP) -- Airlines are being warned by the government that terrorists are considering surgically hiding bombs inside humans to evade airport security. As a result, travelers may find themselves subjected to more scrutiny when flying in the heart of summer vacation season, especially to the U.S. from abroad.

The FBI and Homeland Security Department sent a memo to security officials around the country on Wednesday about "body packing," describing it as a "criminal tactic with possible terrorist application."

The memo, obtained by The Associated Press, cited a 2005 incident in which Colombian men were accused of surgically implanting narcotics into human couriers.

The memo offered possible indicators of surgically implanted contraband, including a distended stomach or other unusual bulging, and visible physical discomfort from a pat-down.

Bombs-in-the-body is not a new idea, but recent intelligence indicates a fresh interest in using this method. People-scanning machines in airports aren't able to detect explosives hidden inside humans. Still, there is no current information that points to a specific plot involving surgically implanted explosives, a U.S. security official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss such sensitive matters.

As airport security has increased since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, so has the terrorists' creativity in developing methods to get around it. Aviation continues to be a special target, and evidence from Osama bin Laden's compound showed that the al-Qaida leader retained his fascination with attacking airplanes until his death in May.

Last year, it was reported that British officials uncovered intelligence that al-Qaida was seeking to surgically implant bombs inside people, a move some believed was prompted by the use of full-body imaging machines at major airports around the world.

"This is something we've been concerned about for quite some time," said J. Bennet Waters, a security consultant with the Washington, D.C.-based Chertoff Group and a former Transportation Security Administration official in the Bush administration.

The U.S. government has been working with foreign air carriers and governments to identify ways to discover hidden explosives, including bombs potentially hidden inside of humans. Officials did not want to discuss specific security measures under consideration so as not to tip off terrorists who could seek ways to get around them.

Once a terrorist finds a willing suicide bomber, secures the explosive material and makes the bomb, carrying off this tactic is not that difficult, said Chris Ronay, a former chief of the FBI explosives unit.

"It's rather easy and the damage could be rather severe," Ronay said.

Surgery to implant explosives could be done a couple of days before a planned attack, said James Crippin, an explosives expert in Colorado. In order for it to work, there would need to be a detonation device, and it's conceivable that if the explosive was implanted in a woman's breast, the detonator could be underneath the breast so that all the operative would have to do is press downward, Crippin said.

But Jimmie C. Oxley, a chemistry professor at the University of Rhode Island and explosives expert, said it would be tough to carry out such an effort successfully. She said there are only so many places to hide a bomb in the body, and a suicide bomber would have to recover enough from the surgery to travel and set off the device.

The al-Qaida offshoot in Yemen has emerged as the most inventive terror organization these days and has been behind two plots that nearly brought down planes over the U.S. The group, known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, was behind the Christmas Day attack in 2009 when a Nigerian hid a bomb in his underpants and nearly brought down an airliner over Detroit.

AQAP operatives also concealed bombs in printer cartridges last October, shipping them to Chicago addresses. That attack was thwarted because of specific intelligence about the plot.

In late December, the U.S. received intelligence that the Yemen group was considering hiding explosives in the insulated lining of beverage containers and carrying them aboard airplanes. There was no information pointing to a specific plot with insulated beverage containers, but, like the recent intelligence about the implanted bomb tactic, the Transportation Security Administration warned domestic and foreign carriers to be on the lookout.

"Due to the significant advances in global aviation security in recent years, terrorist groups have repeatedly and publicly indicated interest in pursuing ways to further conceal explosives," TSA spokesman Nick Kimball said, adding that passengers flying into the U.S. may notice additional security. "Measures may include interaction with passengers, in addition to the use of other screening methods such as pat-downs and the use of enhanced tools and technologies."

Officials would not specify which terrorist organizations are thought to be considering this surgical tactic.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said U.S. counterterrorism efforts must evolve as terror groups publicly indicate their interest in finding ways to conceal explosives.

"The idea that terrorists have been looking for other ways to circumvent security measures to target aircraft is not at all surprising," Carney said."

Associated Press writer Julie Pace contributed to this report.
