Evil Ninja's Dojo of Debauchery... and Stuff

Stuff that I like... or don't like, but feel the need to comment on. Whichever. Puppies, porn, music, and random geek shit... you know, pretty much like every other blog here. NOT a porn blog, though - don't put me in a box, damnit.

    This is both hilarious and terribly misogynistic, which is typical for the time. Also, I’ve never in my life seen “120 Watts.”

    September 21, 2020 - Ron Cobb, best known for being the production designer for several major films, has died at 83 years of age. Cobb brought to life several cantina creatures for Star Wars (1977) and came up with weaponry and sets for Conan the Barbarian (1982), the exterior and interior of the Nostromo ship in Alien (1978) and the earth colony complex in Aliens (1986), and the DeLorean time machine in Back to the Future (1985).

    More interestingly, to me at least, is that in the 1960s and 70s he was a great radical political cartoonist, and sadly, many cartoons of those days are still just as relevant today. A small selection:

    Rest in Peace, Ron Cobb. Find more of his cartoons here: http://roncobb.net/cartoons.html

    Because this is apparently stick up for wolves day.

    Wolf reintroduction in Yellowstone has changed the ecosystem *significantly*.

    One remarkable thing that was not predicted that demonstrates how interlinked these things are:

    Wolf eat elk.

    Elk eat fewer willows.

    Willows become healthier.

    Number of beavers increase.

    Number of songbirds increase.

    Overall health of streams increases.

    Number of fish increases.

    Water table stabilizes.

    This is called a “trophic cascade” and we normally see them as bad things. But a positive trophic cascade is an amazing thing, and apparently nobody predicted this one.

    What they didn’t predict was that wolf predation would keep elk on the move so they wouldn’t overgraze a specific area.

    When the elk overgrazed the willows, they removed the best source of food for beavers during the winter.

    Once that stopped happening, the beaver population rebounded and it turns out beavers are pretty good for the entire ecosystem.

    Today, only one of the LMPD officers responsible for the death of Breonna Taylor was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment. For firing into neighboring apartments. He is being held on a $15,000 bond. The other two officers are still employed by LMPD.

    Today, Kentucky has confirmed that the life of Breonna Taylor did not matter.
