Da-da's Next Minivan is an Oxymoron


Just another supercar right? Nope.

It's not that mini, and it's not a van. It's is a bazillion dollars, though, so Da-da'll only be buying two.

As regular readers know, Da-da doesn't often broach into the posts of others, let alone promotional videos of mermaids and birds, but he makes rare exceptions when it's just too compelling.

Welcome to the QUANT e-Sportlimousine, the first car that runs on sea water -- and goes really fast.

Prius who? Hybrid what?

After making a debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the Quant e-Sportlimousine has received approval from Germany's TÜV Süd. The car, which uses an electrolyte flow cell power system, is now certified for use on German and European roads.

As I stood around waiting for NanoFlowcell's Geneva Motor Show press conference in March, my eyes bounced back and forth between the exotic curves of the concept car at center dais, the oddly punctuated letters of the make and model and the bubbling tanks of water that looked like they were ripped off the wall of an after-hours lounge. Then Nunzio La Vecchia sauntered out, wearing his best jet black pompadour, and made a bunch of bold claims about the 912-hp, gull-winged 2x2 and its bleeding-edge flow cell technology.

Everything about the scene suggested that it might very well have been the last we heard of the NanoFlowcell Quant e-Sportlimousine. Promises of a magic bullet of energy storage, made by a three-month-old company, packaged with outlandish numbers like 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h), hinted, rather strongly, that this car's technology and performance would only exist on paper. Given that a similarly outlandish Quant car, centered in a similar black-walled booth, introduced by a very different Nunzio La Vecchia company, had vaporized years earlier, it seemed a responsible assumption that the e-Sportlimousine would do the same.

Just a few months after its debut, however, the car has resurfaced and taken a step forward. After an in-depth inspection of the car, the German TÜV Süd in Munich handed over the official registration plate this week. Now the company will be able to test the car on public roads in Germany and Europe as it prepares it for series production.

From their press release:

"We are delighted as pioneers to be able to present an automobile driven by flow cell technology on public roads, and one which achieves not only fantastic performance values but also zero emissions," said Le Vecchia, tossing out a slightly revised set of numbers, including "a projected top speed of over 350 km/h (217.5 mph), acceleration from 0-100 in 2.8 seconds, a torque of four times 2,900 Nm (2,139 lb-ft) and a range of more than 600 km (373 mi)."

The flow cell system powering the Quant e-Sportlimousine's four electric motors develops electricity from an electrochemical reaction created by two electrolyte solutions. This electricity is forwarded to super capacitors where its stored and distributed.

Beyond fancy supercars, NanoFlowcell sees its technology taking on a variety of applications. Presumably it will work its way down to more affordable cars, but its perceived potential reaches far beyond the road's edge.

"We've got major plans, and not just within the automobile industry," says NanoFlowcell AG Chairman of the Board Prof. Jens-Peter Ellermann. "The potential of the NanoFlowcell is much greater, especially in terms of domestic energy supplies as well as in maritime, rail and aviation technology. The NanoFlowcell offers a wide range of applications as a sustainable, low cost and environmentally-friendly source of energy."

We'll wait to see the Quant e-Sportlimousine live up to its billing before we get too excited about that future expansion.

WHOA: Foley's "Sister" is... a Sandy Hook "Actor"??


This from Realist News.

The fact that the Powers That Were missed this little continuity error should tell you something about them.

Anyone recall Da-da's post of 8/24/14, "Duper's Delight"? Delving into the fakery associated with the mock American journalist beheading? Here it is again.



HOW can these people live their lives this way? And WHY would you ever believe anything you see on TV ever again? It's all one big staged lie. Always was. Now we have proof. This means that EVERYTHING you see is staged, in one way or another. Turn it off. Turn Washington, DC off. Turn the Fed off.

Turn off. Tune in. Drop the other shoe.

Hershey's new, "Makin' Poopie" logo is destined to become a big steaming pile of poopularity!

Shakespeare Mystery SOLVED


Notice that the face on the 1623 Folio is a mask? See its line along the jawline?



Rather than draw this out, let's get right to it.

Shakespeare was in actuality Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford. You can read all about it in an excellent (and the only accurate) book on the subject, Shakespeare by Another Name, by physicist Mark Anderson. If that's not enough for you, Da-da has employed what he calls the Internet Truth Barometer (the ITB), a very gifted psychic -- who's never been wrong -- on this topic and she's confirmed it. Might as well get over it. Have a nice day.

And no, Da-da received no moolah for that book plug. Da-da only peddles the truth, free of charge.

Duper's Delight on Parade (UPDATED)






Huh. Da-da had never heard of, "duper's delight" till he saw this, but it's something we all need to become experts in given what's happening in the world. Read the definition:

DUPER'S DELIGHT

'Duper's delight' is the delight that people feel when they deceive others.

The delight of deception

Duping is another word for deception, for tricking people into some kind of action or misunderstanding.

The delight of power and control

People who deceive often find a secret pleasure in their success. It is similar to the pleasure that people get when they exercise power. It is as if the brain rewards us for achieving control over other people.

The delight of secrecy

Related to power is having something that others do not have. We thus tend to take pleasure in the secret nature of deception, of not only knowing that we have gained something, but also that the other person does not know this.

Spotting the giveaways

People who deceive others, and hence feel duper's delight, often cannot hide their feelings. If you can spot the signals by which they give themselves away, you can avoid being deceived.

Body language

There is common a transient pleasure in deception that appears, typically as pleasure-signaling body language, such as:
  • Upturn of corners of the mouth
  • Creased eyes
  • Throwing the head back

Transient signals

The body language may also be combined with attempts, conscious or otherwise, to conceal this, which will lead to the signals appearing very briefly before they are quashed and suppressed. For example a liar may flash smile very briefly before returning to the mask of emotions they are wearing.

So what?

So watch other people for the signs of delight when they might be trying to persuade you  of something or otherwise deceive you. When you know this, then you will have reversed the situation: you have the power of knowledge that they do not have -- so beware of sending them back another 'duper's delight' signal!
Then Da-da watched the actual beheading video. He'd obviously not seen it, as he doesn't like to see stuff like that, but... it's a fake. There are no gouts of blood, and the act itself is never shown. But the siblings' reaction above, obviously showing Duper's Delight, is enough to raise a reasonable doubt.

There are also a number of sites begging you NOT to watch the video, for any number of reasons, but you can see it here. It's a fake.

[more]

[UPDATE: Experts have recently weighed in, declaring the below video as fake, you basic war propaganda.]



And now we have The Internet Truth Barometer's read on this: FAKE. Why would you ever believe anything you see or hear in the mainsteream media (MSM) again?

Strange "Norway Spiral" Phenomena in BC Skies




Huh. So, this happened in British Columbia on 8/21/14. Da-da doubts it was a meteor, since its trajectory was curved... unless IT'S A BOOMERANG METEOR?? Oh, and its break up resulted in multiple spirals. Kinda looked a little like a starship opening a portal for the jump to lightspeed:

Officially Artificial: California's Drought the Next Big Moneymaking "Shortage" (UPDATED2)


If only it were this easy.

Remember the artificial oil shortages OPEC and the oil companies used to make money? Remember the artificial electricity shortages propagated by Enron to make money? Notice how new food shortages are suddenly been touted to make some extra money? Well, water's next.

Someone's been buying up private water rights all over the world.

The dried-up "rights" are cheaper in California and Nevada, of course, because of the, "drought." Who's buying up the water rights? The usual billionaire suspects, who are trying to push the price of water to $4 a gallon by privatizing what used to be public.

Now we have the smoking gun:



So, if fake hurricanes are being propagated and data massaged, someone at NOAA is in on this, too. More witches to burn. Da-da's noticed this weather Pacific weather anomaly before, but not written about it till he had more evidence. You can see it al the time, now, on satellite maps: it looks like a "wall" out in the Pacific, which is hardly natural.

Well, there's enough evidence to convict. Like Texas' drought before it, California's drought is looking purposely engineered, no longer the stuff of conspiracies. A famed physicist has even naively admitted to weather control to a nervous CBS news crew.

And then there's HAARP being shut down... er, rebranded:
David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for science, technology and engineering, said this is “not an area that we have any need for in the future” and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. “We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.”
So, it's not only possible, it's been done and is being done.

The question now: Who controls the process? As usual, follow the money.

Unfortunately, our agencies are now owned by these criminals, as are our leaders. What are 340 million of us to do against less than one million of them? Do the math.

F*cking people over for money is officially over on this planet, especially when it comes to things necessary for simple human survival. Anyone caught going against this basic tenet is running out of time to do the right thing and come clean on Planet Earth. Don't forget: America is a sleeping giant. Da-da would say, 'wake the giant at your peril,' but it appears to be too late. The giant is waking up. And the giant is pissed-off.

UPDATE: 8/27/14 -- NASA released a little piece on future use of aerosols in climate modeling. Check out the picture they ran with the article. Recognize the state? Looks like they've been using it as their pet test lab. What they're also not telling you is that the government is afraid of allowing radiation-laced rain fall on rich California farmland -- radiation from Fukushima, which is STILL dumping 8 gigabequerels of radiation into the Pacific every day (totals are nearing Chernobyl levels)... which begs the question: if they're afraid of it raining radiation in California, does that mean they DON'T care if it rains Pacific condensate on Washington or Oregon? They have pretty rich farmland, too.


 
 
Huh.




UPDATE 8-28-14: a large, well-developed tropical storm heading toward Southern California on 8/26-27 suddenly vanished overnight. Would a meteorologist go on record here? Systems like that, that are near-hurricane force don't just vanish in six hours.

UPDATE 10-23-15: Now we have NWS and NOAA personnel under an illegal govt gag order.

Bombs Adjusted for Inflation


Sorry, we can't afford it.

Someone sent Da-da a link to recently declassified pics of the first two atomic bombs, and Da-da got to wondering how much they cost.

The U.S. spent $20 Billion on the Manhattan Project, so those two atomic bombs cost $10B each. That's quite a lot of money for 1945. But how much would they cost in today's currency valuation?

Using an inflation calculator, it works out that those two bombs would cost $128B each today -- or $256B, total -- which is TWICE what Disney is currently worth!

We already knew war was stupid, esp. fake ones, but now perhaps we could all agree to stop paying for it, 'cause we clearly can't afford it.

$10 billion, $20 billion, $30 billion...

This is Not a Test




Just a friendly update from the Light Custodians who recently arrived, turned the lights on and... man, what a mess... but at least now they know where the messes are and are getting stuff cleaned out, pretty quickly, too. Here's their message:
Hello. From now on, no one on or around this little blue ball will be allowed to entertain ideologies that create separation. No more black and white differences, no more us and them, rich and poor, jew and gentile, religious and pagan, giants and dodgers, less fillings and taste greats. From this moment on, you are ALL less filling, and you ALL taste great. You are all perfect, immortal spirit, whole and innocent. All is forgiven and released. Don't fight it. The light is on and you're all home.
If this had been an actual separation event, you would have felt enraged and superior, and might have felt it necessary to foment fear and anger, broadcasting guilt in your general area. Stand down and take a deep breath, let it out slowly... relax and repeat.

36 Signs of the Pun Store Apocalypse


"Hello, Pun House. EYE am listening."

Marketing continues to be the primary way mankind differentiates itself from the animals, except for the invention of cheesewiz and Doogie Howser. Oh, and all that murder and mayhem stuff. Keeping pace with this irresolute pacelessness, below please find 36 exhuberant examples of pun store names -- which Da-da was going to make a regular feature on TOAMCD, but this guy at TANKS A LOT beat Da-da to it, the magnificent bastard. However, Da-da does maintain his own collection, as you'll soon see. 

Da-da's apologies in advance for the size of this graphic-heavy post.
