MooPig Hyper-vigilance Department :: "Caffeine"

We Tried to give up Coffee
Mixed  martial Articles by Pat Darnell  |  May 31, 2014  |  Bryan TX

 "I believe nicotine plus caffeine equals protein," says John Daly infamous golfer.

Caffeine and ADD: "Another way that caffeine can cause problems is by inducing a chronic hypervigilante state, also called “anxiety”.   Some people are genetically prone to hypervigilance, and caffeine puts their system into overdrive.   Anxiety causes severe problems with concentration and memory, and sufferers often described going “blank” in the middle of a conversation.  They are restless and may fidget.  This is easy to confuse with ADD. As the severity increases, the anxious person may experience a dry mouth, cold hands and feets, problems falling asleep, restless sleep, chronic fatigue, and even panic attacks.  In certain people, caffeine can induce all of these symptoms. Sometimes anxiety comes on gradually over the years, and no one notices that it is connected to caffeine consumption.   In highly sensitive people, even one cup of tea is too much.  Anxious people must eliminate ALL caffeine and other stimulants."

Quitting caffeine, well it just isn't possible.


Tolkien was a Blogger ...

Völuspá - Tolkien Gateway: "Völuspá ("Prophecy of the Seeress") is the first poem of the Poetic Edda, a collection of Old Norse poems. It is preserved whole in two manuscripts, the Codex Regius and the Hauksbók, and partially in Snorri Sturleson's Prose Edda. J.R.R. Tolkien was influenced greatly by the saga, most obviously in the fact that most of the names of his Dwarves were drawn from it. Christopher Tolkien suggests that "those Dwarf-names in The Hobbit provided the whole starting-point for the Mannish languages in Middle-earth."[1][2]"

MooPig Tech Coroner :: "Diesel truck blowing black smoke"

Mixed Martial Articles by Pat Darnell  |  May 31, 2014  |  Bryan TX

STATUS: Let me try to explain Texas logic -- I paid $3.50/gal yesterday for regular gas, diesel is $4.48 ... about a dollar higher. In Texas, as the price of gas/diesel goes higher, we see more and more of this:

[Picture Source Unknown]

Are Texans electing  a Texas Pope, and black smoke means the jury is hung? As the price of gasoline goes higher, Texan's in their Dualies jack up their wheels higher.

MooPig thinking: If you can afford that diesel guzzling monster truck, and can afford six new tires, why is your air filter clogged up? For the love of God, change your filters.

We at MooPig are still driving our 2001 Dodge NEON, at 27 m/g in the city, 30 on the highway. We have conserved mightily, please don't blow your black smoke in my face.

Diesel truck blowing black smoke question??: "... racinngfan3. answered 8 months ago: "... You do not want a diesel to blow black smoke. Black smoke means the engine is not tuned properly It also means there is a lot of fuel being wasted. You are not grown up enough to own one if you want it to blow out tons of black smoke. Hot Rod tractor pullers have their tractors set up to blow lots of smoke they also sometimes run a line in the exhaust pipe to shoot flames in the air. They are doing all that for show to get the crowd all excited..."

If the New York fashion trend were for models to be fat, Texans would all get skinny. Just because.

MooPig Tech Coroner :: "Gold Bricks"

Is it Fake, or is it Gold?
Mixed mashed articles by Pat Darnell  |  May 28, 2014  |  Bryan TX

[Picture LINK] These "fake" gold bricks usually have a core made of Tungsten steel that has roughly the same density as gold.

You don't need to go to ITT TECH to wake up to the current state of things in the world. Just browse content in the Internet, search for things, and you will get a cross section of State of the World.

Yes, there are rings of unsavory persons around the world, in the Philippines, China, and places yet to be discovered who are gold plating bars of tungsten to create fake gold bars.  I think it is hilarious. Who buys gold bars? The fabulous rich buy gold bullion. And they can't tell the difference. I hope Mitt Romney bought himself some fake gold.

I would love a sneak peek into the Bush's family meeting when they discover they have a load of fake gold bricks, literally; fake gold bricks for a family of gold bricks. "DUBYA, get in here," says George senior, "I'm gonna give your mayonnaise, pin striped ass a whippin'!"

Jump start your Summer and buy some Krugerrand's, but don't forget to take your portable drill so you can check them.

Listen, MooPig Financial Advisers cannot verify if having a gold standard currency is good for the world financials, or not. We have been gold plating Cow dung for years now, because we want to corner the market on Cow dung.

What makes me such a self-righteous bastard? I don't have a photo of my grandad posing with Hitler, that's what makes me self-righteous.

America's Book Of Secrets Episode Guide - Season 3 -
"The Gold Conspiracy Premiere,"... Date:April 19, 2014 - 10:00-11:00PM ET Gold. It is one of the most precious metals in the world. A glittering commodity so rare that people will go to great lengths to obtain it. But who sets the price? And what are the secret methods to control its value? Uncover the clandestine world surrounding the highly prized precious metal. How much gold does the United States really have–and where is it locked away? Is the American government overstating the amount of gold in its reserves to create the mystique of financial superiority? Former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich discusses the gold standard and the possible manipulation of the commodities markets. Chairman of Euro Pacific Precious Metals Peter Schiff describes how gold could replace credit cards. And author Matthew Hart details how the U.S. is storing gold that belongs to other countries–but may now be missing from the Federal Reserve's vaults."
'via Blog this'
"... There is a difference of around 9% in duty on gold between India and Thailand. This has encouraged unbridled smuggling of the yellow metal. However, since the traditional routes of smuggling such as Thailand-India and Dubai-India are heavily monitored, smugglers have begun using Nepal and Bangladesh route to bring in gold through porous borders. In fact, both countries have even seen their gold imports double in the past one year without any evidence increased demand for the yellow metal in their domestic markets. In another incident, SSB Bagha unit in Bihar under Muzaffarpur Sector recovered fake Indian currency notes worth Rs 83,000. The currency was being carried by two youths belonging to a minority community, said SSB sources. They were coming from Nepal and had boarded a train in India.(Deeptiman Tiwary,TNN | May 23, 2014, LINK)..."

[Picture LINK]

The History Channel says that all of the world's gold fits on a rectangle the size of a tennis court, and would be about thirty feet tall. That's 120 feet by 60 feet by 30 feet to a whopping grand total of 216,000 cubic feet of gold. That's it! That's all. Yet nations scurry around and hoard gold.

1 cubic foot = 30.48^3 cubic centimeters gold = 28316.8 cubic cm gold
Mass = 19.3g/cm^3 * 28316.8 cm^3
Mass = 546,514 grams

Now we can convert to troy ounces or pounds:

1 troy ounce = 31.1034768 grams
546,514 grams / 31.1034768 grams = 17,570.8 troy ounces

1 pound = 453.59237 grams
546,514 grams / 453.59237 grams = 1,254.65 pounds

That comes to a world total of 270,864,000 pounds of gold. You can go figure out how much in ounces for yourselves. But it comes to about $13 quadrillion dollars at $3000 per ounce of gold.

That's all folks. What a racket.

"...Meanwhile, Russia and China keep accumulating gold bars in their central banks vaults. A year ago, a Chinese official was saying that their central bank’s gold buying must be done softly, so as not to provoke a excessive hike in its price that would impede gold buying by the Chinese consumers (did it slip his tongue?). Not only is the central bank of China accumulating gold (without reporting it) to be ready when the dollar fails, but it’s encouraging the Chinese to do the same. Quite a contrast with the West! It should be no surprise that the Chinese rushed toward physical gold in 2013, eclipsing all their previous buying records and surpassing the Indians, whose hands have been stupidly tied by their government. If one follows the gold trail, one will find the countries preparing to dominate the world tomorrow (Léonard Sartoni. Feb 11, 2014. LINK)..."

MooPig Brain Industry Department :: "Stroke Indicators"

Stick out Your Tongue
Mixed Mashed articles by Pat Darnell  |  May 25, 2014  |  Bryan TX

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A
(i.e. Chicken Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is
'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
I have done my part. Will you?

LBDA :: The "Large Big Dumb Animal"
on your Random dial, at your service

Celebrating Nov 2006 to Jul 2009 -- Completion of 32 Months of Not-for-profit Journalism and Plagiarism
by Pat Darnell with Compostholestoy

USDA Approved Web Log

Edible in all U.S. of A. Continental States

We, MooPig, regale our 32 month long adventure because it has fulfilled a charter goal of our chartered-ness way back in our charter months starting November 2006. One goal down, 12 to go.

GOAL # 1: Provide a better social network for moopigsters internationally... sublimated or otherwise...

For decades, we feral moopigsters had been charting our friends' and relations' as most Americans do, with phone calls, Christmas cards and occasional waking from zombie comas to send intermittent Howdy Salutations to cherished friends. Social networking hit drought conditions as communication flowed a dismal trickle. Out of sight; out of mind -- To remember birthdays, christenings, graduations, of our friends precious children, nieces, and nephews, uncles, aunts or cousins.

One in-particular Palikir -- part of the now bona-fide MooPig Family, Compostholestoy -- had embarked unwillingly on an odyssey in months before MooPig Wisdom blogspot dot com.

In essence, with all deference to Compost'y's privacy, he had lost his mate, and was in throes of ambiguity. His once iconic life of four seasons was interrupted by tornadic climate change, and I did not like the fact that I, MooPig da Furst was a thousand miles away -- Compost'y in Michigan, I in Texas.

Because we are opposites in temperaments, and body types, we get along famously ever since college years, remaining great friends. [Witness? I think I can get a amen on that one]

When C's stormy weather began, traveling to an from Michigan was hopeless, near impossible. You see, we both had teenagers and t'ween-agers in both our family folds at the time, forcing priorities to rule our days, sans travel.

So, I said to myself, "Self: Is there any way to be more constant in my communication with friends and relations, today in modern microcosm of social internet?"

Self said back, "Sure as Hell is, you docile, old-brain, dying, large-big-dumb-human-animal! It is staring you in the FACE."

Still I pondered until I realized I must ask more precise, detailed, questions: "Self, does it involve typing?"

"Uhh, yeah, ya' knucklehead," said Self. Low and Behold and Behooved -- the family of MooPig Stuff was born.

Wah Laaaa.... many have made it difficult for this cultish web log activity to continue, there are many who think it is the usual Devil's workshop, for instance... but the needles pricked only to pull threads of undying wisdom through the fabric of our relations.

It turned out, one omni-sonic day, this communication came in from my Love-Struck Comrade in Michigan... after he had determined that MooPig's heart was really into the outcome of his dilemma, via subliminal conversations that exist in-between all the lines of my plagiaristic, yet dominated by zeal -- to blot my companions and their world with long-suffering, kind-patient, deep-understanding information.

##################### from Compostholestoy -- who found new love to cherish and hold onto -- he introduced STELLA:

STELLA-A-A! ! ! ! I could'a been your contender!

Moopig, one of your own has a screaming hole in the heart and needs a place to vent it. IS THIS THE PLACE?! We are manly, yes. And intelligent to beat the band, goes without saying.

Politically astute !? What a perfect world if they would listen to what we have to say.

But here today I blog-challenge us to tread carefully but courageously into the "heart-land".

Love requited but forbidden is my beef.

I can not see STELLA, but I can Moopig her to the universe and let go of the angst. You space aliens listening in! and I know you are studying Moopig in preparation for your imminent invasion (boy are you in for a surprise...)

You aliens, please capture my scream and project it to the outer reaches of the dada-sphere so that every star knows about the black hole of lost love on planet 3 of star system 138, sector 9 of the Uppity Realm of the Andromeda Riviera.

"Oh-h-h, I rememba' sail cloth.
Masted, trimmed, taut:
To gather gusting winds for friends, their lives and loves lost.........*

MooPig Report from the Middle :: "Women and the High Kick"

Girls' Kicking
Mixed Martial Articles by Pat Darnell  |  May 24, 2014  |  Bryan TX

One time a writer at MooPig Enterprises submitted a short story in which the girlfriend of the protagonist whipped around and put her foot in his face, just as a warning. He deserved it, he was a minister, and was talking trash to her. We didn't publish that story; at the time it was written in 1985, it was not a regular thing to see women kicking faces of men. Move ahead about 30 years and we look forward to heroines in cinema kicking the tar out of everyone -- men, women, robots, but not children's faces, thank goodness.

[Picture LINK]

Hitting girls, women, in my time was taboo. They can pound on me, but I keep my hands down. So today I see men beating the shit out of women and vice versa to my saddened realization that I have outlived my demographic. I remember Cagney slapping a woman in a WWII era film. But that was my only remembrance.

The only high kick was what women aspired in dance teams.

[Picture LINK and LINK]

This high kicking had no hostility behind it. It just demonstrated female agility. In MooPig Site Reviews: Efforts of the Generalists' in Post-Modern Pre-Revival Modern Pre-Quel Age we discuss the high kick as part of sports, parades, circuses, and other surprising unsolicited entertainment.

I don't think you will find any classic poetry about the subject of the female high kick. It is a Google quest to find "High Kick, Female, Poetry." You don't see any combination like this, only single parts of that phrase... Modern poetry winners still talk about the body in terms of its collective parts ... Here's a title that contained all the parts of the search, but was not what we are looking for ... "...

Poem gets high school football player suspended, kicked off team


If only this young poet had spent his passion on women's high kick:

It happens so quick
Only a camera can catch it
one round buttocks thrust forward
in that lady's high kick ...

In a flash of pony
She stands on one set of toes
And expects us all
to maintain our repose.

But heavens to mergatroid
Extending her femur like an android...
We see angles that snare
Our subliminal attention unawares.

Thank you Bathsheba's
thank you marching bands
... and thank you camera shooters
for showing me these rooters!

Hoorah for Uma Thurman
David Carridine, and Serenity
... Who killed Bill, determined
With high kick proficiency.

[Another impromptu poem by Pat Darnell based on a failed Google search]

 Welcome to the debate.. and take note. We need High Kick Cheering if we are to Survive the next generation of female heroines in cinema; they need to learn somewhere, why not in high school drill teams. MooPig discusses yet another benchmark capability of Middle American Know How that Values expression by our National Treasures from other Southern Locales ...

Special thanks to Buffy, Wonder Woman, Zena, Ellen Ripley, the Rockettes, Kilgore College Rangerettes, Dana Scully, Sarah Conner, my ex-high-school-girlfriend Becca James, and all the rest. And a special hello to all the parents, boy friends and siblings who are saying: "Yeah, she's in the line tenth from the left!!!"

That's our MooPig Report from the Middle, where women are strong, men are good looking, and the children are above average.

So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you Patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!"

Going Green tends to alienate people rather than galvanize the populace. Why is that? MooPig Galvanizing Department will be asking that question a lot in the near future.

The lesson here is if you want to be the communist half of your country, you might consider choosing the southern half of the boundaries. It is the same here in the USA, socialists inhabit the Northern half of the country; rugged individualism survives in the South. It is a growing divisive issue worldwide, as the Global South is attacked by starving communist corporate dog-asses who would turn food production into a colossal automaton mess. Food and Water supplies will force new boundaries all over the world, especially in North and South Korea. [Read Entire Article HERE]
