The Unsolved Mystery of the Malibu Creek Murder
When a man was killed in Malibu Creek State Park last summer while camping with his two young daughters, it sent the placid Southern California community into hysterics—spawning amateur sleuths, conspiracy theories, and public paranoia. Was it related to a rash of unsolved incidents in the area? But while the tragedy’s aftermath publicly played out like a new season of Serial, there was also a family left picking up the pieces after a seemingly random act of violence. This is a story about what happens when lightning strikes in the most chilling manner imaginable.

The Tale of the Tape
It was the video that ushered in the UFO renaissance: a grainy clip showing the Navy’s encounter with a mysterious aircraft in 2004. The Pentagon says the public was never supposed to see it. So who leaked it? How’d they do it? And what does the footage actually show?

Not a happy read, not too long, but one that needs to be read.

Really great essay on how capital-driven agribusiness practices, namely industrialized farming and ecological destruction, are causing pandemics.

I found this very interesting. There’s no great ending to the story, no mystery that gets solved. It’s kinda sad and very eerie reading the dialogue of the final moments of these people’s lives.

"The Machiavellians"

Quote :
"We believe we are disputing the merits of a balanced budget and a sound currency when the real conflict is deciding what group shall regulate the distribution of the currency. We imagine we are arguing over the moral and legal status of the principle of the freedom of the seas when the real question is who is to control the seas."

August 2016.

Not that it can't still be a good long read. I started it, and it was taking about ideas by candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Wut? Clearly he didn't do shit about it.

Quote :
"Another harm reduction approach is graphic warning labels for guns and ammunition. “Health warning labels on tobacco products constitute the most cost-effective tool for educating smokers and nonsmokers alike about the health risks of tobacco use,” the World Health Organization said, so let’s apply the lessons to firearms. One proposed ammunition label has a photo of a bloody face and states that a gun increases the risk of someone in a home being killed."


the only thing this is gonna do is make people buy more ammo as a "fk you"
