WWII Japanese Sub found off coast of Hawaii

Both the Japanese and the Germans had such advanced tech.  Here is yet another example of Japanese sub tech.  They wanted to use these big subs to launch bombing raids into the western US.  Also had plans to release rats with the plague and other such deadly viruses. The US sunk the few that were captured so the Russians wouldn’t get a hold of them.

Hard to imagine a world at war.  Let’s hope it never happens again.  It will be far worse than some rats and bombs I fear.

The Pirate Bay Tracker Shuts Down for Good

This is a sad, sad day for torrent fans all over the globe.  The Pirate Bay torrent site will shut down for good this week.  Last month we had a taste of what this would be like when they were down for a couple of weeks.  It was tough as the rest of the torrent tracker sites pale in comparison.  TPB’s ease of use and the wonderfully comedic comment section has always made TPB my favorite.  Just like when Napster went away the adjustment will be painful but something new will arise to take its place.  Maybe it will be even better. (crossing fingers)

Have a favorite torrent site?  Let me know.

Holy water dispensers

Over the many years I have been visiting Catholic churches I have wondered why anyone would put their hand in the germ basin which is the holly water hole.  So glad to see the Italians are leaping forward into this century with personal holy water dispensers.  See the Swine Flu is good for something.  American Catholic churches  how much longer before you are on board the germ free train?
