Birthday Parties Are Kind of Gross When You Think About it

Balloons aren't so fun when you think of them as bad breath storage units.

Mark Brown runs for governor in bid to recover seized raccoon

by Rob Beschizza

@Clint, hehe, this can't be serious! Hannah Montana raccoon guy running for governor?

Mark "Coonrippy" Brown, the Tennessee man whose pet raccoon was seized after video of him playing with the furry creatures went viral, is running for governor.

"I have officially tossed my hat into the ring," says Brown in his first campaign video. "... I think it's time to bring the United States back to where it belongs, beginning with Tennessee. We are one nation, under God, not above God. And just like the purity of this apple ... well, I don't know where I was going with that. But I guarantee you there'll be changes made, changes you'll like. You call me, I promise I'll answer the phone."

He really just wants the beloved raccoon back, though, reports WBIR's Tena Lee.

This is all about the raccoon," Brown said.

Brown gained national attention in July following the seizure of his pet raccoon, Rebekah, by Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officials. Brown claimed he was targeted by the agency after videos of him with another raccoon, Gunshow, went viral. His quest to regain ownership of Rebekah was eventually featured on CNN when he appeared on the Anderson Cooper 360 RidicuList in August.

Brown said his letter to TWRA officials seeking a permit went unanswered and a petition to Haslam with over 60,000 signatures was returned unopened.

US farmers cautiously growing hemp again after 56 years of brain-dead prohibition

by Mark Frauenfelder

Hemp is a useful crop. It's used to make paper, cloth, food, fuel, and many other products. But hemp farming in the United States has been illegal for 56 years. The government outlawed hemp cultivation because it didn't want people hiding marijuana crops in hemp fields (they look the same, but hemp does not contain psychoactive compounds, at least not enough to matter).

Interestingly, products made from hemp are legal in the US, but they must be imported from countries that aren't as insufferably schoolmarmish. This year, however, US farmers are starting to grow hemp again. Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana for recreational use, and some farmers are taking this as permission to grow non-psychoactive hemp in those states. (Hemp, both the inert and psychoactive varieties, is still prohibited under federal law). The first company in line to buy US-grown hemp is Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps. Alternet's April M. Short has a good article about the movement.

The U.S. is one of the fastest expanding markets for hemp in the world, and imports currently come primarily from Canada and China. America imported $11.5 million worth of hemp products in 2011, up from $1.4 million in 2000, the majority of which is used to make granola bars, cooking oils, and personal care products.

Steenstra says in addition to supporting American farmers, a local hemp industry will bring the prices down, and mitigate ecological impacts. Dr. Bronner’s is based in California, where just last month a bill to legalize hemp was passed— contingent upon the Justice Department’s reaction.

The law requires California to regulate the farming, processing, and sales of hemp for oilseed and fiber, just as soon as the federal government says it’s okay to do so.

I can laugh at all of these, except that Top Gun Image.  Why would you recreate that Top Gun image???

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, actually I’d say about 90% of those were hilariously uncomfortable on some level.  But this one kills me:

Iron Maiden's social-media/piracy success story was wrong(ish)

by Cory Doctorow
Carolyncasl

@Clint, update on the Iron Maiden thing.

Contrary to my post from earlier this week, Iron Maiden did not decide to tour latinamerica based on Internet analytics about the countries where their music was most pirated. The author of the story made an "error." However, there was research showing that the countries where Maiden was making millions from live shows were also the countries where their music was pirated most.
