This movie was dark af damn...

i wonder how many environmentalists were made by this movie

I like that this is an environmental movie that doesn't paint the humans as villains. The one guy was kind of a careless asshole throwing his bottle, but he didn't know it would cause this truck driver to blow out and spill poisonous chemicals into the forest. It's all an unfortunate accident, and a survey team even tries to clean things up.

This scene scared the shit out of me. Right up there with the air conditioner scene in Brave Little Toaster.

When I was younger I’d always hold my breath when Abigail went into the badgers house, I can’t remember if they were badgers and I also can’t remember if her name was Abigail, but it still makes me hold my breath to this day.

When I was a kid it was the 'spotted owl' debate that brought it to the fore for me.

Oregon was built around the timber industry.

It’s often dubbed an elitist and sexist organisation which has remained unchanged for 300 years, full of secret handshakes, rolled-up trouser legs and strange ritual ceremonies but it seems becoming a freemason has never been more popular.

Re: Mad World
Sorath Adversary of the Lamb

Rudolf Steiner said that Sorath is the Sun demon from Revelation, a great evil power far mightier than Lucifer and Ahriman. He predicted that at the turn of the millennium people will be able to see the Sun-genius, the etheric vision of Christ. In response Sorath will foment opposition through men who are possessed by him, whom have strong nature's, raving tongues, destructive fury in their emotions, and faces which outwardly appear like those of animals.

They will mock that which is of spiritual nature.


The mystery of Sorath and his number 666 holds the secret. The power by which the Sun-genius overcomes Sorath is the archangel Michael..who has the key to the Abyss and the chain in his hand.

The Sun Demon's color is black. Not a warm black, but a black void.

The Sun Demon is visible in the most radical transgressions:sexual violation, self-destruction, serial killing, and state directed mass murder.

The Sun Demon is manifest in nuclear weaponry.

How We Analyzed Data From Oregon’s Timber Industry

Timber helped build Oregon, but, since the 1990s, the state’s western counties have lost thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in annual revenue. For decades, much of the blame for the downturn has been placed on the federal government’s decision to reduce logging in national forests.

An investigation by OPB, The Oregonian/OregonLive and ProPublica examined ownership and tax data to determine the financial losses for counties in the Coast Range from the decline in logging on federal lands and from tax cuts for the timber industry. Our analysis of data found that timber tax cuts have cost counties at least $3 billion in the past three decades. By comparison, counties lost close to an estimated $4 billion due to federal logging reductions. In western Oregon, at least 40% of private forestlands are owned by investment companies that profit from the cuts.

..

One objective of our analysis was to compare revenue losses from the phased out severance tax to those that stemmed from the federal government restricting logging in national forests to protect the northern spotted owl. We obtained county-level federal payment information from Headwater Economics, which uses data from the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. This data includes payments received by counties for their share of revenue from timber sales on federal lands, as well as subsidy payments made as federal logging levels declined.

To estimate the amount of federal revenue lost in each county since the spotted owl restrictions, we totaled inflation-adjusted federal payments from 1991 to 2019.

Thread: The surprising side effect drinking alcohol has on your heart (and brain)

Thinking about skipping happy hour? This new study will make you reconsider it.

According to new findings presented at the ACC’s 70th Annual Scientific Session, moderate intake of alcohol can dramatically decrease one’s risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

Alcohol calms your brain?

It all has to do with alcohol’s impact on stress levels in the brain.

The researchers from the American College of Cardiology behind the latest report based their analysis on the 53,064 participants featured in the Mass General Brigham Biobank health care survey.

Each participant underwent standard health monitoring; including 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography, (PET imaging) meant to gauge brain activity related to fear and stress in the amygdala.....'

Re: Mad World
Was The Neverending Story ripped straight from The Pilgrim's Progress?

The Swamp of Sadness vs. The Slough of Despond.

Signs point to yes.
 Quoting: Seer777


Any way you want to read it..The Swamp of Sadness, was clearly lifted from Pilgrim's Progress.

Pliable's journey with Christian is cut short when the two of them fall into the Slough of Despond, a boggy mire-like swamp where pilgrims' doubts, fears, temptations, lusts, shames, guilts, and sins of their present condition of being a sinner are used to sink them into the mud of the swamp.
