AUSTIN—Interactive attendees were turned away in hoards as Al Gore took the stage to talk at South by Southwest on Saturday. The topic of his session was the (actual) future and The Future, Gore’s latest book about what the former vice president calls the “six drivers of global change.”

Lord Gilbert, aka Life Peer Baron Gilbert, a House of Lords fixture, has suggested using a neutron bomb on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border to clear out pesky natives who were radicalized by his country, the United States, and Pakistan.
“Your Lordships may say that this is impractical, but nobody lives up in the mountains on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan except for a few goats and a handful of people herding [...]
SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — Officials in a New Jersey shore town might use goats from Maryland to rid an environmentally-sensitive area of poison ivy.
SEASIDE PARK — A goat’s appetite might be the answer to the borough’s poison ivy problem.
State restrictions bar Seaside Park from using chemicals or burning the long-overlooked mess of poison ivy on its bayshore, so the Borough Council is considering a contract with a Maryland farm to [...]
1. Prepare to produce things that you now pay for. Growing vegetables, fruit and raising chickens or goats. Can you sew or work leather? Are you physically strong enough to chop and carry wood?
2. What skills do you have that can be used to barter or help others? Could you repair a plumbing leak, assist a carpenter in building a house, cook for a group of people, weld, run a [...]
Let’s have a thought experiment.
Translate your circumstances. You are a Greek citizen. You work in Greece, your family is in Greece, most of your contacts are in Greece. What are your thoughts? What are you doing today? Are you one of the people who has taken your money out of the banks? What are your plans – especially if you cannot leave.

Socgen Ultra-bear Albert Edwards turns his focus to attention China, where he warns of rampant inflation and little hope of a soft landing.

If you thought that last night’s news that Greece had been consulting (and paying) the far more “stable” Irish Central Bank on how to, oh, avoid bankruptcy, this may jus top it. In an FT article describing the new set of austerity measures most of which are very loud threats that [...]
In an FT article describing the new set of austerity measures most of which are very loud threats that Greece will very soon (really) take austerity seriously (they promise), we stumble across the following gem: “The conservative opposition New Democracy party said a shortage of ink had prevented the computerised tax centre at the finance ministry from sending out claims to taxpayers over the last 10 [...]

The preachers of America didn’t have to wait long to find out where this Grassley probe was heading. It’s heading further toward Nicolaitanism, which God told the church at Ephesus, he hated.
Nicolaitanism is where there is a special priesthood that is exalted above the people. In order to keep the people happy in their slavery, the government through the IRS is producing approximately a million [...]

Last year Mark Zuckerberg set out to learn Chinese. Now he’s determined to get in touch with his food. If the goats, lobsters and chickens of Silicon Valley aren’t trembling, they should be.
The eyes of a hunter.
When he’s not too busy connecting people across the universe, Mark Zuckerberg is pursuing a new “personal challenge,” as he calls it. “The only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve [...]
