Just wanted to reiterate for some, if you are not backing Odd Future, you’re officially sleeping. Not trying to be one of those dudes who compares some new shit to the masters but just to give you an idea; it has the ‘I don’t give a fuck’ vibe of DOOM but filled with fucked and twisted scenarios that you might find on a Brotha Lynch album. Somehow it’s still relatable to your everyday situations while pushing down the street. Being a group that produces, directs, and creates every inch of their likeness on their own it was cool to hear the homie Brick Stowell got the opportunity to shoot these guys. Check everything out from behind the scenes during the ‘Yonkers’ shoot to their adventures on the east coast at brickstowell.com. All of their albums are available free at the top of the Odd Future site. Get fuckin downloading.

Cocaine to Blame for Rain Forest Loss

Posted on February 23rd, 2011 by admin

“Cocaine is destroying lives and tearing homes apart—and not simply because of drug use. Farming coca, the plant used to make cocaine, has been linked to rising deforestation rates in Colombian rain forests, a new study says.

What’s more, ecologist Liliana M. Dávalos and colleagues have for the first time quantified indirect deforestation tied to coca farming, such as clearing land for growing food crops near coca plantations…

Production declines may correspond to decreased demand in the U.S.—some 95 percent of U.S. cocaine originates in Colombia. The 2009 National Survey on Drug Use & Health—the U.S.’s largest—shows the number of current coke users age 12 and over dropped about 20 percent from 2007 to 2009…

‘Production itself is also located in pristine areas, where the Colombian biodiversity is incredible, and it relies heavily on toxic chemicals. What’s left over is dumped into the ground or into the river systems of rural Colombia.’ “

The good news is we are cutting back?

“Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god.”

“Imagine that someone committed a murder. Now imagine that the murderer risked his own life to save another person. Would you forgive the murderer for his crime?

No?

So, how many lives would the murderer need to save to balance out his original sin?

5?

10?

In one study, the median answer was 25.

This is an example of what psychologists call the negativity bias, which is a powerful part of the human mind. In many different areas of life, bad is stronger than good.”

Thanks Pegamixels.

The Moon.

I hope some of you all in this area caught this spectacle the other night. I was straight taken back by it. I already admire that big rock in the sky, but as common as this phenomena seems to be on the internet, I have never seen this. So I took some snaps, even caught some UFO type object in this last one because there was nothing flying through my shot to the naked eye…

“The ring around the Moon is caused by the refraction of Moonlight (which is really sunlight) through ice crystals suspended in the upper atmosphere. These ice crystals always have a hexagonal shape, so they always refract light at the same angle. Of course, the atmosphere is filled with crystals, all refracting moonlight off in different directions. But at any moment, a huge number happen to be in just the right position to be refracting light towards your eyes. You just aren’t in a position to see all the other refracted light. This is what causes the Moon ring.

We see a rainbow because the different colors are refracted at slightly different angles. This is exactly what happens with a rainbow. The moonlight is broken up into its separate colors because they all refract at different angles, and so you see the colors split up like a rainbow.

A moon ring or moon halo will always be roughly the same size – 22-degrees across the sky. The full moon is half a degree, so the ring around the Moon will encompass an area 44 times bigger than the Moon. This is because the crystals bend the light at a 22-degree angle from their original path.
