How To Protest (Extinction Rebellion Style!)

11/23/201957 Comments

So you’ve decided to get off your butt and save the planet. About time!

So, what was it that put you over the edge? Was it the impassioned plea to “Act Now” because “Our House is Flooding!” Or was it the finger-wagging “How dare you?” of everyone’s favorite Klimajugend? Or maybe it was  the shocking revelation that “The sky has AIDS!”

Oh, sorry. That last one was a catch phrase from the last invented enviroscare. But we’re super cereal about it this time. I mean, haven’t you heard? We only have 12 years left to save the planet! (Or maybe that should be one year. Or is it negative three years? Or perhaps the jig was up nineteen years ago. Whatever. Don’t bother me with facts. The point is, we’re all doomed!)

Alright, whatever. You’re here. That’s good enough. But what now? I mean, there’s the lawsuit that will stop species from going extinct, but you know how slowly the gears of justice grind. And there’s the excellent new idea to impose a military draft to confront climate change, but it seems there isn’t a lot of popular support for that idea for some reason. Isn’t there anything we can actually do to stop the weather gods from killing us all?

Well, fret not, dear concerned ecowarrior. We here at Extinction Rebellion have the perfect plan for you! Here’s the easy-peasy five step plan to starting an international protest movement that’s guaranteed to keep the global average temperature from changing!

    I was mightily impressed with Camille’s video about Arctic sea ice.

    Anyone who’s contemplated chemtrails or conversed with extremely anxious university students protesting “Climate Change”

    (which somehow only means “human-caused Climate Change” (where even skeptics no longer bother to make the semantic distinction to their own detriment IMAO (in my arrogant opinion)))

    has contemplated the phenomenon of eco-terrorism, wreaked both on the environment and the human psyche, in pursuit of the “hidden” agenda of absconding with and tight-fistedly controlling the world’s resources through a technocratic (circular?) economy.

    IOW, that the measures proposed to “save the planet” are really implemented to destroy it enough to gain exclusive control over it and the people on it (and as Camille points out: to make the masses dependent on a completely synthesized world that they would eventually become incapable of surviving without.)

    I’d seen the headlines about Russia’s nuclear-powered icebreaker ships but in my hasty assimilation of that simple fact I only hastily gloated over the idea that this was mere proof of the fact that the arctic had begun an upward cyclical trend towards growing its ice sheets.

    I knew there was a race to abscond with Arctic resources and I’d heard about exotic HAARP-style technologies

    but I had not considered that there might be some huge long-standing project of massively destroying the ice sheets (through magnetic resonance??) to access those resources which would at the same time reinforce the illusion of man-made climate change melting the northern ice cap.

    I’ve recently noticed that I’ve latched onto a bizarre, desperate, kamikaze and obviously irrational hope that man may indeed be able to destroy himself and much of the environment (far from what I desire) but cannot significantly impact climate cycles and I’ve put great faith in the idea that “nature” is hard-wired to re-establish fundamental equilibrium dynamics and that formidable forces such as the sun and cosmic rays, but also ocean exchanges with the atmosphere, major currents such as el nino/la nina, the jet stream and a host of other physical phenomena involving the mechanics of fluids, thermodynamics etc that I do not even remotely comprehend

    are too ancient and colossal to be perceptibly altered by Humans.

    So as I attempt to grasp the implications of this video, I shall congratulate Camille for her impressive work and dedicate this song (That’s right! It’s Saturday night!!) that I love by l’Affaire Louis Trio in honor of our Chic Planète so let’s Dance on it!!

      Here’s one more Affaire Louis Trio song I love even more:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9rTS_it7s8

      Le Capitaine

      “He is no longer of this world, he lives under the seas, the seas.
      He abandoned his watch, he was too proud, too proud.
      Since he left, he’s been defying kings, kings, kings
      Because the ocean is the only one that dictates its law, its law.
      He dances amongst the waves, his heart rejoicing at having thrown down his weapons
      And far from the screams and thunder of war
      The captain sings at the bottom of the sea.
      He no longer has a flag, May life overflow!
      When he is in pain and needs love, love, love
      He waits for the sirens to court and seduce them.
      He wants to live in their arms, their arms
      Between the China Sea and the island of Java.
      He dances amongst the waves, his heart rejoicing at having thrown down his weapons
      And far from the screams and thunder of war
      The captain sings at the bottom of the sea.
      He no longer has a flag, May life overflow.
      The gold stripes he threw overboard
      Represented nothing for him but remorse, futile sword blows into water.
      Nothing scares him anymore, he knows what’s beautiful.
      His tastes are aqua colours, he walks on water, on water.
      Even in the midst of storms, he didn’t give up, didn’t give up.
      He doesn’t care about those crazy people who bring you down, down, down, down, down, down.
      He dances in the middle of the waves, his heart rejoicing at having thrown down his weapons
      And far from the screams and thunder of war
      The captain sings at the bottom of the sea.
      The captain sings at the bottom of the sea.”

      “…obviously irrational hope that man may indeed be able to destroy himself and much of the environment (far from what I desire) but cannot significantly impact climate cycles…”

      I wouldn’t say irrational, it’s quite possible, but not with altering climate as you say.
      I don’t think eco-terrorism by changing weather or climate is possible. These systems are colossal. Energy we can output with some of methods that are supposedly used is less than minuscule comparing to the climate. Even invoking Butterfly Effect leads nowhere in my opinion, because that would mean godlike science-technology are now in control of chaotic systems, governed by differential equations that are unsolvable in most cases.

      Or, they have a solution but they didn’t tell us. In any case, it boils down to belief in science-technology and that is on both sides: climate change proponents and those talking about climate terrorism.
      I’m afraid there is not a long path from this belief to technocracy.

      So, human activity can’t alter “material wold”. But it can change (what an euphemism) “chemical world”. DDT, pesticides, nitrates (from agriculture) in groundwater…. everything from this shit proven bad.
      Yes, sad story of environmentalism.

    • Camille says:

      Oh, manbearpig, thank you for your kind words and for considering the information I put together.

      The intentional destruction of the ice sure would help to “reinforce the illusion” that all they’ve been spewing is true.

      While I have not looked into it so much, I do question what is happening in Antarctica, as well. I’m often seeing reports of icebreakers smashing in to deliver supplies and sometimes underwater drones “studying” the ice shelves and I can’t help but think of Crichton’s State of Fear and the fictional attack on the Antarctic ice. I know it’s just a story but such an incident could probably pass for a natural event and how would any of us really know?

      Here’s a video I dislike from some military news channel where they are smashing their way to Antarctica. Poor little penguins.

    (Sorry for replying to the sub-topic that is in one of the links)

    The “Unparalleled weapon” is similar to some secret projects in the US.
    keywords for different projects:
    project Aurora, Skylon, hypersonic, project Pluto, pulse engine.

    How it works:
    First you have a ramjet engine. It was already used in the V1.
    It is a tube that compresses incoming air, and blows out expanding gasses.
    Usually it is mixed with fuel which then explode at the exit.

    Combined with a nuclear reactor, the incoming air can be expanded by
    extreme heating. This also cools the reactor.
    The problem here is that the heating takes a bit of time to really
    produce an explosive expansion. For this a section of the air is
    contained a bit, heated, and then expelled at once.
    This is the pulse-part of the engine.

    These aircraft may be able to stay above mach 5 or even mach 8,
    for a long time. With the nuclear reactor, they can travel a many
    times around the earth, without refueling.

    You may think that this is very advanced, but these capabilities are
    still far less than what UFO’s displayed during the second world war
    and around US and UK nuclear bases.

      The Pentagon Audit is interesting, but it seems that they are looking
      into the complete wrong direction:

      The audit effort covered more than $2.9 trillion in total assets and $2.8 trillion in liabilities, with 1,400 auditors, visiting 600 sites around the world and requesting more than 100,000 samples of equipment as they surveyed the department’s inventory.

      So they are looking for the lost $41 trillion dollars in assets
      that are worth only $2.9 Trillion. And find nearly nothing.
      Did they expect $41T to be taken away from $2.9T assets that
      are hard to move or transfer?

      This probably means that the audit is not allowed to look into
      the black projects, frauds, money-laundry, drugs-trade, arms-trade,
      human trafficking, resource stealing, arming terrorists, etc
      that are hidden behind “national security”.

    • GE⊕ says:

      Skylon has been under development by Reaction Engines in the U.K. for a number of years mainly as a single stage to orbit reusable spacecraft. This concept would potentially be more useful and commercially viable than Elon Musk’s reusable rocket launcher concept in that it is a winged system that could take off and land from a runway. The goal is to substantially reduce the cost of launching mass into space with a reusable system that would have a short turn around time. This would open up a lot possibilities to use space resources – especially energy from space – to meet humanity’s growing needs on Earth.

      That it could be used for a hyper-sonic weapon, like all technology, is a possibility but this was not the original intent.

    Jeepers! Just looked at all of Mr. Corbett’s hyperlinks in this article (well, very hastily) and this is one doozy of a newletter!

    What marked me the most tonight (Beaujolais festival!) was the Robert F. Kennedy article that cites Krugman among others with statements like the following:

    – “…Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics….”

    – “…Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit.

    They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with…”

    – “…In 2014, the warmist Gawker website wrote: ‘Arrest Climate-Change Deniers’ – ‘Those denialists should face jail’ – ‘Criminally negligent’ – ‘It’s time to punish the climate-change liars’…”

    – “…‘Execute’ Skeptics! Krugman’s sentiment joined by fellow climate fear promoters…”

    – “…In June 2009, a public appeal was issued on an influential U.S. website asking: “At what point do we jail or execute global warming deniers.”…(For full story see: ‘Execute’ Skeptics! Shock Call To Action: ‘At what point do we jail or execute global warming deniers’ — ‘Shouldn’t we start punishing them now?’ – June 3, 2009)…”

    – “…NASA’s James Hansen has called for trials of climate skeptics in 2008 for “high crimes against humanity.” In 2006, the eco-magazine Grist called for Nuremberg-Style trials for skeptics. In 2008, Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki called for government leaders skeptical of global warming to be thrown “into jail.” In 2007, The Weather Channel’s climate expert called for withholding certification of skeptical meteorologists…”

    And finally they’ve actually enacted some of these witch trials and fired people…

    And on and on it goes…

      Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

      From the last part of Corbett’s article, Part #4 with the sentence “And if that doesn’t work we can always try them for crimes against humanity(LINK)”….

      Yea… I ran into some of his thoughts about climate change way back when I was researching Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and his stance on vaccines (“Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Press Conference – The Science of Vaccines Forum” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Yf4-P2qbHo )

      While I admired his passion and hard work on many, many other worthwhile fronts, I was disappointed to see that he believed the faulty hype about manmade climate change. He carries his passion into that topic.

      I guess I might eventually end up in prison because of my views on climate change.
      Maybe “manmade climate change” is part of the “shower talk” at Sing Sing Correctional Facility. I could elaborate, but I better leave it there.

      I didn’t notice the XR thing. Interesting. By the way, the movie, which, it seems to me, riffs off of the great (in my view) Wicker Man movies (I liked both), was awful. See it if you must but I think you’d be better off buying a book.

  7. HomeRemedySupply says:

    Corbett’s November 23, 2019 article “How To Protest (Extinction Rebellion Style!)” is loaded with some great humor and wit.

    Throughout, I got hit with chuckles and titters.

    This line is a keeper…

    From the recommended reading and:

    About supporting mega-polluter McDonalds, 21-year old Extinction Rebellion protester, Rachel explains:

    “…She ordered a black coffee and admitted that ‘it’s not ideal’ and she did feel ‘guilty about it’…”

    Well, then it’s ok! I mean, that’s the point, isn’t it?! That’s what it’s all about anyway!:

    Making us all feel really REALLY GUILTY!

    So we’ll accept to pay our hefty Carbon indulgences, bless those smart meters and other ambient sensors and embrace our monkish austerity!

    • mik says:

      “So we’ll accept to pay our hefty Carbon indulgences…”

      Hefty, they don’t think so. They believe there will be Climate Justice and the burden of transformation will be shared proportionally.
      They say they are aware problem of Carbon can’t be dealt with separately, apart from other socioeconomic issues.
      Now it’s about Climate Justice that has many goals.

      I asked some CJ believers do they really believe billionaires will take their righteous/proportional share of burden.
      Who will persuade them and what means will/can be used, because now they don’t show much empathy in any way?

      Of course, if I got something as answers it was very very naive.

      CJ believers also don’t realize that among many goals they have carbon goal is about life or death and as such is kind of utmost importance and other goals might be overshadowed. Will be, would read a conspiracy nut as me.

  9. HomeRemedySupply says:

    On the list of Corbett’s “Recommended Viewing”, there is a video about the Age of the Internet.

    Starting at the 22m5s mark of that video is a great, take-home point about “learning from history” in the time-line to the apex of the internet’s freedom, plus a nice parody song.

      That French language sure glides smoothly across the ears.

      From SocGen – Société Générale
      Société Générale S.A., often nicknamed “SocGen”, is a French multinational investment bank and financial services company headquartered in Paris, France.

      On 14 Nov 2019, Michala Marcussen, Group Chief Economist and Head of Economic and Sector Research publishes an article: “Cooling effects of global warming”.
      https://www.societegenerale.com/en/cooling-effects-global-warming

      EXCERPTS
      In the course of 2019, climate change increasingly made economic headlines. The most spectacular images came from extreme weather, and while not all weather occurrences are due to climate change, most experts agree that this increased incidence hereof is.
      The direct damages caused by extreme weather has increased significantly over past decades, averaging just over $250bn over the past five years (up to 2018) compared to $50bn in the early 1980s, in constant terms…

      …Climatologists predict that the occurrence of extreme weather will only get worse, tipping the balance to more disruptive and more durable negative consequences.
      Central bankers are understandably concerned by the financial stability implications hereof…
      …forest fires in Brazil…
      …Climate change is indeed fast making its way up the list of policy priorities, and not least driven by the fact that electorates are beginning to prioritise the issue, both in the ballot boxes and in terms of their consumer preferences…

      …changes to emission standards notably dented the auto sector in Germany… …a comeback for train travel, a new fashion for vintage clothing and lower meat content in diets spring to mind…

      …A further opportunity for public policies is to influence price setting and regulation to further nudge consumers and corporates in the right direction. Addressing the distributional impacts of climate change must also be a key priority. Here, public investment programs, be it for infrastructure or education, could make a notable difference, with potential to lift growth over both the shorter and longer-term horizons.

      Looking ahead to 2020-21, the global economy is fast losing momentum and while there is clearly opportunity for climate change to make a positive contribution to economic growth, this requires a more determined effort than currently observed on the policy front….

    Martin Armstrong Warns Of The Coming “Big Freeze”

    This might be good news long-term for the Natural Gas industry.
    And it might solve the fake ‘over-population’ problem. As temperatures get below freezing, climate alarmists who don’t want to sin won’t be able to use that nasty hydrocarbon, natural gas, for heat. I guess they will be left out in the cold and wish we could go back to global warming.

  13. GE⊕ says:

    As we know, and as James’ article points out, everyone is talking about the “Climate Emergency” . However, very few are talking about an essential and intrinsically related aspect which seems to have been overlooked by the experts (or maybe not) – specifically, just how inadequate are all the terrestrial energy options – nuclear, wind and ground solar – when considering these as alternative energy options to divest from fossil fuels and to achieve net-zero CO2 goals by the year 2050 as is being proposed by the UN and many other organizations.

    This article “The Energy Emergency and the Space Option”

    https://thespaceoption.com/the-energy-emergency-and-the-space-option/

    analyzes the situation and looks at current world energy consumption levels published in the BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2019 and uses this information to estimate the anticipated level of world energy consumption in the year 2050 for an anticipated population of 9.7 billion.

    The analysis shows that it would be next to impossible to even replace current fossil fuel use which currently constitutes 85% of world energy consumption, with any terrestrial alternative energy resource. For example using nuclear power, it would be necessary to build 17,316 new 1-GW (gigawatt) nuclear power plants to replace current fossil fuel use which is equal to 15.6 Terawatts (15,600 GW) of energy. To meet the 2050 energy requirements two to four 1-GW nuclear power plants would have to come online each day, starting now, for the next 30 years.

    As the global population increases so will humanity’s energy needs. To give a realistic idea of amount of energy that will be required in 2050, four scenarios of energy consumption levels are described – from a minimum of a 25% increase based on the expected population increase, to a more probable increase of 2.5% per year under current conditions.

    Finding each of these terrestrial energy options to be inadequate as they cannot be realistically scaled to provide the necessary energy, in addition to being environmentally problematic, together with the fact that proven reserves of fossil fuels are limited and could reach exhaustion levels at mid-century, humanity is facing instead an imminent “Energy Emergency” .

    As a possible solution, the only technically feasible alternative currently available to humanity to achieve net-zero CO2 levels and fossil fuel independence while providing the necessary energy to sustain civilization is to use existing space technologies to harness energy in outer space to meet the growing energy needs on Earth with clean and inexhaustible energy. This approach was first proposed in the 1970’s, studied in the 1980’s by the US government, but discarded due to the interests of the various energy lobbies.

    It is a bit of a read with many references, and one has to comprehend the numbers, but in the current debate about how to address the Climate Emergency it something to think about. While the “Energy Emergency” may sound like another fear topic, the solution could be very optimistic for humanity.

    It would be interesting to hear the opinion of the Corbett Report community.

    • mik says:

      When future of the planet looks bleak, space looks like idyll. The whole new space drive also reinforces a belief in science-technology, beautiful for technocrats.

      Harnessing sun energy in space and bringing it down is endeavor beyond comprehension. First everything has to be lifted to orbit. Prices for lifting are falling but what would increased traffic mean for atmosphere I don’t know. Since the project is so big some are probably considering space production, something that has not been done yet.

      But even if you have solar farms in space, how to bring energy down? With microwaves that attenuates with square of distance and with all conversions loses get at the end electricity for few bulbs?

      What would happened to a satellite if it would cross the energy beam? It’s very crowded up there.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Terrible various scenarios for mankind

      Ge, you bring up an interesting aspect, such as humanity is facing an imminent “Energy Emergency”

      Also, on a side angle, many alternative ‘economists’ and preppers often bring up an awful economic crisis that puts mankind into chaos.

      I remember some years back, sitting in on a conversation with Richard Gage and J Gourley at the restaurant dinner table. The topic was when the economy tanks and how things will be. One person said that it would get very, very grim…no food for weeks, riots, etc. The other said that things would work out; that while things might be difficult for a while, people would iron things out.

      I agree with the last take on it.

      The Hidden Hand…

      The audio “I, Pencil” and James Corbett’s 5 minute “Economics in One Image” really lay it out.
      https://www.corbettreport.com/economics-in-one-image/

      The real problem is that governments go messing with “The Hidden Hand” and foul things up.

    In the past, I often have mentioned Fluoride and also the host of Teflon-like Fluoride chemicals such as PFAS, PFOA, PFOS, PFNA, etc.

    PFAS, PFOA, PFOS, PFNA type chemicals are now ubiquitous. They are in the bodies of most people and animals. Many products can contain these multi-fluorine atom chemicals, such as fabrics, carpet, packaging, paper, cardboard, cookware, fire-fighting foams, waxes, paints, cleaning products….

    DARK WATERS is a movie being released this November 2019 in theaters. Based on a true story, it stars Mark Ruffalo and Anne Hathaway.

    “The View” interviews Mark Ruffalo and also the Attorney, Rob Bilott, who is portrayed in the film.
    However, at the very end of the interview, suddenly the conversation marries this pollution issue to Climate Change.
    (7 minutes …scroll to the last third for the marriage)

    By the way, astroturfing TED talk by Sharyl Attkisson is appropriate here:

      I confess, that after watching that awesome and exquisitely clear TedX talk, I’m a little afraid for the safety of this woman…

      Thanks thomas.j!

      thomas.j, thanks very much for the link.
      Sharyl Attkisson was the one that blew into the open the Swine Flu scam in 2009.
      Showing the corruption of the CDC (not to mention CBS…).

      Just the tip of the iceberg.

    Fanfreakingtastic article, James! Just excellent, as are many of the comments. I may use this as a rebuttal list of items for Normies in the future.

  17. Arby says:

    I’m not a climate crisis denier but if anyone could make me wonder, it’s James. James may not like that I like his article, in that case. Sorry, but it’s great. And it’s a keeper. I agree with %99.99 of what he said. And what he reports, in great style, is important.

    I will only make this observation: The world is ruined. It is ruined physically (pollution, including the pollution of ground water [assorted chemicals and nano particles], and the constant ruining of the soil and the dangerous destruction of bees that, as far as I know, is fact) ‘and’ spiritually and mentally. Do you have to be a Christian to know that? Look at Trump derangement syndrome? Look at Left derangement syndrome? (That’s where rightwingers who are criticizing what fakers like Bernie Sanders or Obama do deliberately omit the fact that they are actually rightwingers, and the purpose of that is to smear, via guilt by association, the real Left. How often to you hear rightwingers mention a ‘fake’ Left? I think I heard Alexander Mercouris, a Conservative, say it once.) Look at the self-important zombies reading their smart phones and walking into you. That one’s not too hard to miss, Is it? Meanwhile, Reading that might actually benefit those zombies, and the wider society (caring is knowing is caring), isn’t happening, as Chris Hedges makes clear (via stats for Canada and the US) in his great book “The Empire Of Illusion.”

    The most important part of the ruination of our world is the ruination of people, mentally and spiritually. It leads to evil systems and philosophies like neoliberal capitalism (with inequality at its core), neoconservative philosophy (think dark side of the force), the Christian fascism of those who led the recent coup against Evo Morales, the war on informed consent (vaccines), Hollywood’s production of war propaganda and it’s successes and Hollywood’s promotion of exploitation (including exploitation of kids in all kinds of ways, including for profit as James reminds us in connection with Greta Thunberg. Also, The GND is ruining and/or exposing an awful lot of progressives and progressive orgs.) Hollywood also promotes the dangerous (and anti-Christian) idea of ‘no boundaries’. Aleister Crowley (who may have worked for British intelligence) was perhaps the world’s most colorful promoter of that idea. What was it he said: “Do what that wilt,” including talking funny in order to look important.

    You don’t get good things (a healthy environment) from bad, dark, minds, is what I’m trying to say. Monkeys banging away on typewriters will never write sonnets.

    James,

    I want to personally thank you for your documentaries that touched on technocracy, eugenics, and the co-opting of the environmental movement by the oligarchs behind this insane preaching about climate change.

    I used to be an advocate for global warming, climate change, and changing to a green economy.

    However, I was not aware at all of the darker undertones that I have now been made to be painfully aware of in recent years.

    The sick, twisted agendas behind recommending the eating of insects, human flesh, and other crazy suggestions to reduce our “carbon footprint” have certainly set off alarm bells that something really fishy has crept into the movement over the years.

    I was aware of the “overpopulation problem” over the years but did not realize to what extent this has been propagandic brainwashing throughout all of the institutions by the “oiligarchs” over the decades.

    While I appreciate the work of Patrick Wood, Alex Jones, and Rosa Koire…I have especially loved your presentation of these flawed attitudes and “science” that we are now constantly being hammered with lately.

    Thank you.

    Excellent article. Definitely one for the best of Corbett Report!

    How to protest Extinction Rebellion

    or at least get motivated to do so;

    From a recent WUWT article about a short book written by Belgian philosopher Drieu Godefridi whose English edition is titled: The Green Reich; Global warming to the Green Tyranny in which he states:

    “…we have good reason to be alarmed. Not by climate change, but by the endless, hazardous-to-humans measures that activists propose in response…

    …Climate activists believe human produced CO2 is endangering the planet. Since everything we do generates CO2 – including breathing – that makes us the enemy…”

    hmmm… why does that sound familiar…?

    I don’t know what to call this website, but it isn’t useless. Just what it says, slap the guy with an eel. Highly rewarding.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Ha! When I get to feeling frustrated, I gonna go here and move my mouse pointer back and forth across the image.

      I wish wars were fought this way.

      • mkey says:

        Don’t wear out the teflon pads on your mouse. I guess this could be a great way to settle disputes, virtual eel slapping. Even no eels would be harmed in the process, brilliant.

    • mkey says:

      There are some real gems here. Like the hackertyper.com (which could make you seems awful smart to an unsuspecting passer-by) or chrismckenzie.com for it’s simple but effective animation.

      I won’t binge.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        Chris gets sad when I close the window.

        • mkey says:

          I thought that initially, too. However, “he” gets sad as the mouse pointer goes outside of the web page area. The face turns sour as it no longer can “see” the mouse pointer inside the page. As you pause mouse movement, you will see a face in distress, looking in various directions.

          It’s nicely done, I thought.
